Our trip was wonderful!

We recently returned from our vacation in Florida staying at Casa Santa Barbara in Pompano Beach and I wanted to take a minute to say thank you for all of your help our trip was wonderful. I have never booked like this before and any reservation I may have had was quickly gone once we arrived and saw how beautiful the house was it was everything plus. The home was exquisite it made our family trip so much more special and I do not think we could have asked for more. We are hoping to do this again next year at the same home. Again I thank you the home owner and all of the staff for helping to make our trip that much better.

Outstanding Property for a Large Family Vacation!!

There were 12 of us that stayed here for the week, including two kids under 5, two young adults and 8 adults. This mansion was absolutely flawless and accommodated our family perfectly. We had to source a blow up mattress and a small bed for one of the kids, but we managed to make this property work without compromise for the week. The pool was obviously the focus for our party of 12 but the huge 70" Samsung with surround sound was comforting for some NFL fans and night time chillin. The WIFI is also very strong in all areas of the mansion. Its great for entertaining and the massive kitchen easily held five people cooking, making drinks and prepping. There was an issue with the kettle, and a minor outdoor problem that needed handling so I texted Jason (Owner of By the Sea Vacation Villas) and he sent one of his tech's to take care of it right away. He brought a new kettle, fixed the outdoor issue and brought a new coffee maker as well. Simply put, if we needed anything all we had to do was ask and it was taken care of. It's in a great location, nice and close Walmart, Publix, and Pompano beach is about a 20 minute walk away. If you need to hit the gym for the week go to YouFit and get a $31 weekly pass, its only a 5 minute walk down Federal Hwy. Over all it was a great stay and our experience of this property and the professionalism of By the Sea Vacation Villas was outstanding.

Our third stay through by the sea vacation villas was this past march at their new listing casa Santa Barbara. This house has it ALL!!! It truly is a private gated estate with remarkable furnishings, spectacular water views, a fantastic large heated pool, custom patio lounging, extremely high ceilings, very open Floor plan, not to mention everything is brand new and absolutely top of the line! This mansion was nothing less than TOP OF THE LINE in every way possible!! Everything you could possible need is provided in the home and I have to say the pictures really don't do the home justice! The minute you walk in the home, you are in AWE! This home in every way possible is just simple breath taking! I will say after renting through by the sea vacation villas twice before, this did not surprise me! They always over deliver! I loved the other homes we stayed at too in the past. We tried Santa Barbara as this was a new home in their portfolio and we needed a 5br with our extended family joining us. Once again, by the sea vacation villas and the home they thought would best suit my needs this year exceeding my expectations once again! i would highly recommend casa Santa Barbara as well as any home through by the sea vacation villas! You will not be disappointed!! Thank you once again by the sea vacation villas for yet another amazing vacation!!

Santa Barbara Estates

We stayed at the GORGEOUS Casa Santa Barbara Villa for two weeks in April! We found and booked the Villa through By The Sea vacation rentals. It was not only an exquisitely beautiful 5 bedroom Villa, but is was landscaped with luscious green plants and palm trees, providing a tranquil haven to escape from reality! In addition to all this, the pool side hangout was very spacious, BBQ and lots of patio furniture for soaking up the sun! As if that isn't all you need it is also on the water but located in its own little cove so you don't have all the boat traffic going by looking into the backyard which made it that much more peaceful and relaxing. I would definitely recommend this Casa Santa Barbara and By The Sea vacation rentals - Tiffany was wonderful and helped us booked the perfect spot! We are already looking forward to booking this same Villa next year!

My family and I have been traveling to lauderdale by the sea and pompano beach for years... I can honestly say by the sea vacation villas saved me! I had dealt with so many disasters renting through home owners and have also heard horror stories regarding tropical vacations. When I found by the sea vacation villas 6 years ago, I couldn't have been more pleased. Between their staff, their BEAUTIFUL homes being completely as advertised online if not better, their reputation, their dedication and loyalty to their customers, etc. I couldn't be happier! I now rent through them and only them because I know it's 100% legit... what you see online is exactly what your going to get, every year their portfolio of homes is growing and the staff just shows such a passion for what they do and are truly very helpful when needing advice on which home they think would best fit your needs depending on your preferences, number of people, etc. not to mention they are highly recommended by the chamber of commerce of lauderdale by the sea and have an A+ with the BBB and it certainly shows why! This past April we tried casa Santa Barbara and I have to say..... With our large extended family of 13 this year... The house couldn't have been more perfect!!! These pictures do not do it justice! This home has everything you can ask for and more!!! It's beautifully decorated, TONS of space, GREAT heated pool, unbelievable water views.... If I could give casa Santa Barbara more than 5 stars I would! Although its tucked in for absolute privacy, you are still 2 min. From the beach, shops, restaurants, etc. this one truly has it ALL!! Thanks again BTSVV and we will see you next year!!!
