Date of Stay
Dec 23, 2017
We rented all five apartments over the Christmas week. The property was beautiful and well maintained. The location was excellent: Las Olas and the Riverwalk 5 minutes away, the beach a 10 minute drive. There were multiple restaurants and grocery stores within walking distance. The pool was somewhat small, but the kids loved it nonetheless. The management was quickly and competently responsive to our needs. I highly recommend staying at Villa Tunis.
Loved the very private pool surrounded by well kept gardens. The location was near everything but far away enough to be quiet. We stayed in the big two bedroom two bath apartment and had lots of room. Well equipped kitchen. Everything was very clean. I would recommend this as a prime rental.
Well maintained property with a responsive manager. Close to grocery store.
Villa Tunis is a beautiful oasis tucked into a wonderful neighborhood, Victoria Park. When we arrived, we were greeted by Gamal, the most gracious, delightful and caring individual you'd ever meet. He takes great pride in reviewing all the details of the property and your stay. He fusses over you like a Concierge at a 5 star hotel (in a good way!). Our apartment was very comfortable, well equipped and immaculately clean. Our courtyard is professionally landscaped, with comfortable chairs, gas grill and heated pool area. We never heard a sound from the neighboring properties. Victoria Park is surrounded by restaurants, markets, and stores of all kinds. The beach is a short drive, as is Los Olas. As we left, we were making plans to return next year.
Great place to stay!

Villas Tunis was a great place to stay for me and my brother, it was clean, comfortable and quiet, close to amenities. The property manager Gamal was very helpful and accommodating. He was helpful in getting us oriented to the local area, directing us to a local Italian Restaurant ILl Mulinos. Close to downtown, walking distance to the Riverwalk shoppes and restaurants, and short drive to beaches. Highly recommend this place for travelling to the Fort Lauderdale area!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The grounds were beautifully maintained, the apartment was just perfect, and Gamal could not have been a better, friendlier manager. The location in Victoria Park was also perfect-close to the airport, close to the beaches, restaurants, shops, and in a very nice neighborhood. We will most likely be back again next year.
We booked Villa Tunis on behalf of my son who was there for the Lauderdale Regatta and it was a memorable experience. The landlord is quick to respond, generous, and most accommodating. Villa Tunis is a convenient location with a lovely themed home. We would definitely stay there again.
We so enjoyed our stay last year that we booked it again for this year, and the experience was as delightful as we remembered. The location is in at the Victoria Park section of Fort Lauderdale, within easy walking distance of Las Olas, with its fine restaurants and shops.The villa is spacious, immaculately clean, with lovely furnishings. However, what sets this facility apart from most others is the presence of the genial and helpful manager, Gamal. He's on site every day to make sure everything meets his high standards. When I mentioned that an outside light no longer worked, he was there within minutes replacing the bulb. The entire facility is welcoming and beautifully maintained. Would I recommend it? Without hesitation.
After taking a ten day cruise it was pleasant to spend another 8 days in Florida. The home was just lovely, very clean and comfortable. Gamal was very nice he was very welcoming. After eating for ten days on a cruise we were looking forward to just eating at home. We noticed that there were a few items missing. After a few days we made a few request and Gamal emidiately went to buy them. We just wanted a few extra bowls and a ladle which he had no idea what I was talking about. But after a brief explanation he found one and brought it to us. Thank you for making our stay so pleasant. Hopefully we will return next year and stay again.
