    Historical Traveler Reviews 15 FTL Guesthouse Fort Lauderdale

    New Zealand House

    from

    The New Zealand House is a clean, affordable guesthouse in Ft. Lauderdale. It is conveniently located with quick access to Wilton Manors or Las Olas Boulevard. The owners were very hospitable and interested in ensuring a comfortable stay. The clientel was a bit on the older side so if you're looking for a wild atmosphere, this is not the place.

    The only down side was there were regular (daily) visits from a group of the owners friends. This struck me as odd and at times inappropriate, but this is one man's opinion.

    Loved the New Zealand House

    from

    I just spent a 4 day weekend at the New Zealand House in Ft Lauderdale and loved every minute of it. As you come in the main doors, you are greeted with a very private and tropical setting of palm trees and a swimming pool. My room was as quiet and comfortable as any I've stayed in. Attention to detail is the hallmark of the New Zealand House, from the first-rate furnishings in the bedrooms to the towel warmer in my bathroom. Lounging around the pool all afternoon and having drinks was a blast. I'd definitely stay again.

    Paradise in Fort Lauderdale

    from

    You will not find better rooms or service! The owners are the perfect hosts.

    Better than expected !

    from

    the travel guide descriptions of New Zealand House are quite understated. the facility is immaculate, updated and very well appointed. the owners treated us more like good friends as opposed to "customers"... and as Martha would say "thats a good thing".

    what more can i say: great service, relaxing heated pool, killer cocktails, and a good location. Enjoy!

    Best clothing optional resort in Ft.Lauderdale

    from

    This is our fifth visit to NZH, the second since the complete remodeling of the rooms. Our two week visit over new years was great. We love the pristine pool and rooms with body showers in the immaculate baths. Rick and Warren, the owners, provide everything one could want for. A great continental breakfast in morning, nude pool with pooside drinks every afternoon(not just fri&sat like most places we have visited) and as we are from Ilinois, it was great meeting other guests from Boston, Deleware, New York and Germany. The patio and pool area make a wonderful setting for nude sunbathing and getting to know other guests. We will surely be back again. Paul and Christopher

    Awesome Place

    from

    New Zealand House is ans awsome place to stay and Warren and Ric are wonderful........I know where i'll be staying next time in Lauderdale

    Fourth time's even more of a CHARM at New Zealand House

    from

    I have stayed at New Zealand House four times now and would never think of staying anywhere else when visiting Ft.Lauderdale. Ric and Warren are exceptional hosts who go above and beyond when it comes to hospitality ,friendliness and professionalism. I feel as if I'm going home everytime I stay there. The pool is beautiful and well maintained as are the grounds and the rooms.The location is central to everything a gay man could want to do in Ft.Lauderdale and for the price; a convenience that is always greatly appreciated.

    Great Gay Deal, but ask questions

    from

    For the price, this hotel was great. It is in just the right location unless you have to be on the beach.

    The owners were incredibly helpful, and they kept this small guesthouse extremely clean. The pool never even had so much as a leaf in it.

    BUT ...you should ask questions of the owners before you confirm. When I checked in there was a woman and a 12 y/o child staying. This was obviously different than I imagined when I booked my trip. All their advertising, including the website, does not exactly push women and kids. The owners are great, and I feel certain they would answer all questions honestly.

    A small but friendly home away from home

    from

    I chose to stay at this gay guest house because of its small size and location; 5 minute drive to the beach and 5 minutes from the heart of gay Ft. Lauderdale. But it is much more; the most outgoing, friendly and accommodating owners Warren & Rick really made me feel at home; they even did my laundry! Good size, clean room with lots of amenities, decent cold breakfast and a beautiful pool/patio area. Even plenty of safe parking spaces. My only pet peeve was the fact that there were a number of non-guests (neighbors) visiting the pool area nearly every day. This sometimes spoiled the quiet and quaint nature of the place. There were also a 12-yr old boy and a straight woman (son and friend of a gay guest) which made nudity around the pool somewhat awkward. Perhaps a more strict policy about day guests and keeping the property "Gay Only" could improve this otherwise wonderful place as a piece of paradise.

    Pampered and Pleasured

    from

    The entire resort was immaculately clean with personal details everywhere. The proprietors are friendly and went out of their way to make my stay relaxing and refreshing.

    The location was convenient to the gay beach, shopping mall and only a short cab drive to the bars.

    We drove to another hotel to catch the water taxi. It takes you to all these different stops along the river. We got to see some amazing buildings. Our first stop was at an Italian Restaurant where we had some lunch. I had pizza. Then we hopped back on the water taxi and saw lots of expensive boats. There was also a big navy ship. They were setting up fire works on a barge for the 4th of July, their Independence Day. ...

    In the meantime we wandered around the ship and ran into a Head Waiter who was on the Royal Princess last year and also recognised a couple of cruise director staff that I recognised including an NZer who lives in Australia. And Kelvin Joy the CD was the CD on our 2012 Diamond Princess cruise.

    ... 24, but the woman said no, and then left. She came back in a minute and said that she would check with the manager about a discount. A few minutes later, a middle aged woman came to us and offered Joan a 10% discount...not much but something. Graeme asked the old woman for a wart remover and she took him down to the watch section.....I guess she understood that he wanted a watch remover. The next few hours was just a blur as we raced from one side of ...

We also managed to score free frozen custard for dessert! We stumbled across the original Sloppy Joe's and the Coyote Ugly bar that inspired the movie. Of course, I had to sample some Key Lime Pie before our departure but we sampled many key lime flavoured foods. We grabbed some ...
