Terra Mar Island Retreat
Terra Mar Retreat
Situated on one of Fort Lauderdale's most sought after properties, this beach style cottage rewards you with a breathtaking view of the intracoastal and it's yacht traffic. This is where the waterway widens into a lake with a seemingly endless waterbody viewable from anywhere in the house.
This three bedroom, two bathroom, 2,000 square foot home is located on a private island nestled between the intracoastal and the beach. It is a short walk or drive by golf cart (optional to be included) to the beach.
The entire house has been designed to make sure guests can be entertained without ever having to leave. What more could you ask for from a back yard with a mini zip line, outside dollhouse, and screened lanai with a bar? The gas grill invites to cook steaks or fish that can be caught right off the dock, and a comfortable outside dining table makes for the perfect setting to sit and eat together.
While the beautiful backyard and its many features are the main attraction of this charming home, the inside has been perfectly appointed for entertaining. The kitchen is large and fully equipped with all appliances guests might need, and there is plenty of space in the living room for everyone to gather around and watch a movie.
All three bedrooms in the home are spacious and provide plenty of privacy. The master has multiple windows that let the Florida sunshine pour through the room and a comfortable, King size bed. The two remaining bedrooms house a Queen and double twins, each topped with luxurious linens.
The beachside community of Lauderdale-by-the-Sea offers the best atmosphere in town with restaurants, bars, live music on weekends and scuba diving plus many other sporting activities.

House is lovely
This home is lovely. We love the home and treat as are own. I did some little thing inside the house for them as well. We would give a 5 as this position is great!”
I did not stay at this property but am writing the review after speaking to my sister. She reported the house is in a great location with a fantastic view. The pool is deep and partially shaded which keeps the water refreshing in hot Florida summers. She did say the property would benefit from some simple upgrades. Specifically plastic glasses and plates to use by the pool, new towels, ice cube trays (the water is not connected to the fridge to make ice), a full set of steak knives (there was only 1), and a deep cleaning inside. The outside needed some attention as well as there were a number of empty propane tanks, old deflated pool toys, hoses, a broken umbrella and cobwebs. She wants to thank the owners for being attentive and providing alternate accommodations at their other property a few miles away when the air conditioning went out and the repair guys could not get there till the next day”
Perfect Family Getaway
Fantastic location. Lilly, the coordinator, was equally as fantastic as the property itself. She was there to help immediately anytime we had questions and was very friendly. Lauren, the homeowner, was extremely helpful in providing an ExerSaucer and high chair for our infant to use. We had a great time!”
Great Relaxing Stay!
Beautiful place, would definitely like to return one day!”
Wonderful Villa; excellent setting; great Owner.
Location! Location! Location! This lovely home is right on the Intercoastal Waterway, and less than a mile from the Beach, in a quiet, gated community. There is lots of indoor/outdoor space making the home ideal for watching the passing yachts while having afternoon cocktails. The open concept brought great views from the entire home. There are many great restaurants within a 5 minute drive. (I suggest Kaluz which has really good seafood and a lovely setting). There is so much to do in the Ft. Lauderdale/Pompano Beach area, our week flew by quickly! This home is very well set up for young families, complete with an outdoor dollhouse! Lauren was very helpful with pre-arrival details and it was nice of her to check in with us mid-week. Thanks Lauren, and I hope to reserve your lovely Villa again!”
Great Waterfront Location, Walking Distance to the Beach
Jordan and Lauren Did a great job of making sure the home was ready for us and in answering our questions prior to arrival. We just live across the coast and chose the home for the ability to bring our boat for some fishing and diving. (We had unprecedented rain that week so we did not do as much on the water as we anticipated.) The dock had proper systems to keep our boat safe. We enjoyed the long water view. Due to rain we only used the pool once. But we did manage to walk to the private beach park and get in some long walks on the beach, The beach access is a great amenity all year round. There are also some nice restaurants just a few miles away in both directions. The home is a well equipped Olde Florida charmer not fancy but location is everything. We would visit again. Thank-you.”
