“Wonderful place to stay: home away from home!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2012

We stayed at Villa Venezia (Island Delight) in summer 2009, but I forgot to write about.
We had a wonderful time, service and comfort! Everything and everybody (owners, management and maid) perfect!
Best position in Fort Lauderdale, close to beach and Las Olas, but very quiet place, no noise, no traffic.
We felt so good even though far from our home, and convenient for a long stay.
We appreciated so much owner's European style for interior decorations.
Next time we'll go to Fort Lauderdale, we'll surely come back to Villa Venezia!

My picture is taken in the Villa V pool by the way. :)

We have now stayed at the VV five times over the past 8 years. As others have said, it's a great place. It is also in walking distance of the beach and the Los Olas shops and restaurants. Most of all, it is relaxing! We have seen the same people there for the past five years and compare notes and catch up every year.

Some people come here and hardly ever leave... this is their vacation. Some come here for a month or more; one couple was here this winter for three months! We use it as our oasis to launch day trips to the beach, rent a boat, walk around town, etc. Having a kitchen, or efficiency, helps save money and means you don't have to eat someone else's cooking at every meal. There is a washer and dryer available, too, so you can pack lighter than you might otherwise.

I would not recommend the VV for families with teenagers; maybe kids under 10 and adult children (I think that means about 30, these days).

Room Tip: All rooms are very nice. Rolf, the owner, keeps them up himself. We have stayed in the one bedroom...

After a 7 years break we returned to the Villa-Venezia and this sometimes concerns me. But not in case of the villa. Sabine and Rolf (Owners) as well as their staff are too focused on their customers to let things go. When you visit the villa, you´ll notice that there are regular guests for the most part.

This place is so neat and well maintained that one must feel comfortable. Remember, the villa got several awards in the past. Well, we can only recommend this place and we would love to get back as soon as possible. Make sure you book a room early enough! And now an important point for german travellers. The staffs speaks german as they are from Germany or Austria. Just if this matters anyhow.

Room Tip: Rooms are different but all well maintained. It´s rather a matter of taste and size. Check their web...

I felt right a ease upon check-in. Clean, comfortable and intimate. Wish I had a small boat or friend with boat to use docks. Apartment was cozy and clean. Will definitely stay here again. Affordable and friendly atmosphere. Disappointed the pool was not heated though. All in all very satisfied.

We very much enjoyed our stay in this lovely villa/ hotel. You definately feel at home, very tasteful design and atmosphere, beautiful apartments and lovely greens (palmtrees and other plants/ flowers), very peaceful and quiet. Fully equiped kitchen. Right behind Las Olas (very nice street) and less than one mile to the beach. if you're looking for privacy, relaxing and enjoyment at most convenient location, this is the place to be! We'll definately come back.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2011

This place met all what we were looking for. First, the rooms were just like small appartments with a small kitchen, perfect for catering to our basic breakfast and lunch needs. The rooms were very cleam and tastefully decorated. The pool area also well msintained. The entire complex was quiet with an exceptionsl view on the canal. This was the perfeçt homrbase. We went to the beach, shopping, sightseeing and came back fir a relaxing dip in the pool before dinner. A BBQ grill is available at the pool area and we found ourselves having a nice candlelight dinner in the evening. The location is convenient as it is close enough to the beach area and to the Las Olas boulevard tourist activities. The staff is also very nice and attentive. We were there before Easter and the hotel common grounds were decorated with bunnies ans easter eggs which brought a nice homely atmosphere, which you would rarely find anywhere else. Yes, I highly recommend this place.
