The Mango House was built around 1925 and has a huge garden with mango trees. We are downtown and a short bike ride to the beach, walk to Las Olas and downtown with shopping, museums, dining and famous Fort Lauderdale nightlife. The house is 3 blocks from the main bus terminal, 12 minutes from the airport and taxis get here in 3 minutes. You don't really need a car. You can rent bikes nearby. The best Irish bar with live music and great food is a block away.
We're in an up-and-coming neighborhood with loft apartments and urban pioneers. It's not a fancy neighborhood but it's central and safe. I have owned this house for 20 years and while we are in a downtown area, the neighborhood is as safe as any other. It's your country home in the city!
The house is rustic and charming. The house has never been fully renovated as such and still keeps an old world charm. The house has been refinished and is very clean with central air conditioning. The garden will amaze you, complete with running river. The people who come here love it mostly because it is so authentic, true to character. There is an outdoor bathroom... bubble baths in the garden. You can hang out here and have fun. The kitchen has been renovated and is always the gathering place. The appliances are all high-end. We even have a stock of frozen mango from last summer's crop that we put into the blender on many occasions (you will be able to also!).
There are three bedrooms (2 queen beds and a full size). Description says sleeps 17 because we have the charming Mahogany House next door that sleeps seven and the MangoManCave out back also has a two single beds. Renting the ManCave is included only with groups of 10 or more. Ask more about large groups.
The entire yard, about half an acre, is fenced in and even small dog proof. The outdoor shower and tub are worth the trip! Their are two queens and one full size bed. There are two cats on the premises but none live in the house.
The outside bath and shower are shared with the owner when they are in town.
We're looking forward to hearing from you. Just tell me what you are interested in I'll see what we can do.
