“A Great Trip Made Better!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2010

Warren and Ric were perfect hosts! From complimentary cocktails served at the pool to the little things, like throwing a couple of whirts in the laundry, they made the 4 nights at New Zealand House sooooo enjoyable. This was my 2nd visit and both times Warren suggested a sightseeing excursion different than the one planned. Both times he was on the mark! The property is immaculate and the rooms are very nicely decorated. Travelled with 2 friends and they were equally impressed. The property is beautifully landscaped, as well. Only the weather disappointed....

New Zealand house is so relaxing and refreshing. Upon waking in the morning your breakfast awaits you. Sun by the pool with all the other friendly guests and before you know it, it's cocktail time. Warren and Ric are extremely accommandating and go out of their way to make sure your stay at their hotel is the best experience you could have while in Fort Lauderdale. This was not my first time at New Zealand House and it will not be my last either. It's the only place to stay !!

Enjoyed my stay. Warren was particularly helpful in steering me to the right merchants to get my computer fixed.
The weather was cold, but everything else was warm and friendly.

this was our second time staying here and it was as good as the first. warren and rick could not have been more accommodating and made us feel right at home. the rooms were great and the location was central but, very secluded. the other guest that we met were all very friendly. we will be going back soon.

I was in Fort Lauderdale to visit friends and buy a property - there for a week.

Having spent 15 years vacationing in the beach area gay resorts - and the nice but motel like Cabanas in Wilton Manors The New Zealand House was a treat !

On every return it felt like I was returning home to relax by the pool.

Central to everything - 5 min drive to the beach, 10 minute drive to Wilton Drive, 5 minute drive to Los Olos, 5 minute walk to 92 acre Holiday Park, and once you exit lovely Victoria Park everything you need is right across Sunrise Boulevard for a very nice stay - upscale Publix Grocery store, Walgreens, Dunkin Donuts, ATM's, Gas --- everything this close by.

The owners live next door and really make you feel like you are visiting their home -- yet it feels all your own. The HEATED pool makes late night dips very refreshing. Breakfast is ready and waiting in the morning.

The gentlemen that were there to treat us to daily cocktails and tend to our needs were true gentlemen.

A relaxing and welcome experience.

The room was very comfortable
the a/c was a bit noisy though
the garden and pool were great
I really think the hosts did a great job of making me feel welcome
The idea of drinks by the pool ws hard to resist
