Casa Carina: Two houses from the beach entrance


Wonderful home. This house was everything it was advertised to be. Plenty of room for everyone and the pool was great. We even had a daily visitor, "Coconut", the neighborhood cat. I would highly recommend this home to anyone planning to stay in the area.

Perfect vacation home


"Casa Carina" satisfies on two important wants in a vacation property, location and style of house. The Hillsboro Shores area has a private gate leading to the Atlantic Ocean, steps away from the house. The neighborhood is quiet, mostly residents, and upscale. Driving to any restaurant or other activity is easy as access to the "Federal Hwy" is just blocks away. The house is walking distance to a few small restaurants and other locales on the A1A. The house was clean, the beds comfy, and the pool along with the outdoor area very pleasant to spend time around. Each couple had their own bedroom and bathroom, which can be a challenge to find in a four bedroom rental. The amenities were as advertised and the rental agency was quick to respond when we had questions-- they have a professional attitude and were great to work with. We hope to rent again next year!

Excellent home with a great pool


This was a great home for our family to enjoy a week in the sunshine. Grandkids were either in the pool or on the beach the entire time of our stay. Would definitely recommend this property

Family Home!


Our family of ten stayed at Casa Carina Christmas Eve to New Year’s Eve. Our three generations thoroughly enjoyed and loved the home, pool, access to the beach and the surrounding neighborhood. The bedrooms, common areas, large kitchen provided plenty of space for indoor and outdoor activities. The property exceeded our expectations; everyone was pleased with our choice! The resident iguanas sunning on the roof were our daily visitors-great fun to watch! We appreciated prompt responses and support from Saskia Peralta as we journeyed through our stay!

Dream Vacation Home!


We stayed here for a week with our four children and loved absolutely everything about Casa Carina! The home was large and spacious with an enormous kitchen, which made it easy to prepare meals and entertain friends. All of the bedrooms were well appointed with super comfortable beds, luxurious bedding, and TVs, and everyone had plenty of space to spread out. The home was also incredibly clean throughout--something that we greatly value (especially with twin toddlers) and that you don't always find in rental properties. And our entire family absolutely loved the pool! It was huge with plenty of room to play or swim laps, and the pool deck itself was enormous. It was awesome to have the whole family enjoy being outside without being crammed into a small area, and we enjoyed many meals outside overlooking the gorgeous pool. The proximity to the beach was amazing--just a few steps away. Both the neighborhood and this particular stretch of beach were great, too--quiet, peaceful, and low-key without any loud or rowdy crowds. Thanks for sharing your beautiful home and outstanding hospitality with our family! We absolutely loved our stay and can't wait to return to Casa Carina !

Beach Paradise


This is a beautiful home, as the photos show. We had a large family gathering, the spacious common area worked wonderfully for us. The kitchen is large and well equipped. This is the third house we have rented through " By the Sea Vacation villas", and they do a tremendous job of making sure you are comfortable and enjoying your stay. We are already thinking of renting this house again next year, we loved bouncing back and forth between the easily accessible beach and the homes pool with our grandchildren. We highly recommend this very clean and well maintained property.

Amazing!


Amazing! Had everything we needed and more; beach towel, beach chairs, blender, coffee pot, toiletries, grill, washer/dryer. Steps to the beach! Restaurants within 2 miles. Less than 30 minutes from airport. Felt like staying at a friend house, felt right at home

Casa Carina was amazing!


Casa Carina was amazing! From the pre-departure information to the on site support- it was a pleasure staying at this gorgeous house. Class Carina is beautifully decorated, spacious and in an ideal location 1/2 block from a beautiful beach. Our favorite spot was on the pool sun deck or enjoying happy hour on the covered patio. The kitchen is top notch gourmet, bigger than most New York apartments and made even me want to cook. All and all a fantastic week in a heavenly abode. We will be back.

Expectacular home


Casa Carina met all of our expectations. We were 2 families with young children and there was ample space for us all. The home is beautiful with a large, well-equipped kitchen and large comfortable beds. We loved the pool and patio in the back and it was so close to the beach! Overall, I highly recommend this vacation property and would happily rent from By The Sea Vacation Villas again in future.

Wonderful Vacation Home


This rental property lived up to all its pictures claims. The house is in beautiful shape and offers all the amenities you could want. Each room was cleaned thoroughly before our arrival and in 5 star hotel shape. If any service was required during the week the property manager had a representative on site promptly to address this including buying a new coffee machine and delivering it within an hour. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone looking for a lovely vacation in the Ft. Lauderalde/Pompano Beach area

This is the seventh year we've reserved a home in the Hillsboro Shores area. Casa Carina was a great fit for our family. Great sized bedrooms all with their own bath. We had three adult children with spouses and a grandchild staying. The entire home was nicely updated and very clean. While expensive for a week it was well worth it. Short walking distance to ocean or use of a great pool made our choices easy. The entire home was top notch. We'd reserve it again
