As always, we had a great time at this hide-a-way in Ft. Lauderdale. The owners are wonderful and helpful. This is the place I always check first for my travel plans to SE Florida. New wireless internet worked flawlessly.

We had a wonderful time. Everyone was very nice and willing to help out in any way they could. All of the guests were VERY friendly, introducing themselves and sharing cocktails at the pool. This all made for a wonderful and relaxing afternoon lounging at the pool enjoying the south Florida sun. The rooms were more immaculate very well appointed...

Rick and Warren operate a true gem in the New Zealand House. The establishment is very well located, tastefully decorated and they truly go out of their way to address the comfort of their guests. The atmosphere is casual and welcoming, and I felt completely at ease as a solo traveller. I will certainly be back.

New Zealand House is a secluded lush oasis with awesome hospitality provided by owners Warren & Ric. From the paver bricked pool area to the fabulous landscaping and fountains, the outdoor environment was wonderful. Continental Breakfast was served poolside and the surroundings made having our morning coffee very pleasant! The pool itself is more than adequate for an 8 room...

Florida in July can be hot, humid and not too much fun, but since I was there for work I decided to spend a weekend and explore. I decided to stay at the New Zealand House, the website was nice and the reviews were great. I am so glad that I stayed there! The hosts are incredible, it is like...

I chose the New Zealand House for a relaxing get away and that is exactly what I had. Owners Warren and Ric go out of their way to ensure every guest is comfortable and well attended. This intimate, centrally located property is extremely clean and well maintained. Rooms are beautifully decorated, each with a very individual look, and very comfortable....

We had a great stay. Our nice size room was pool side with an oversize bathroom. We had a wonderful breakfast each morning pool side at our own pace. The hosts, Warren and Ric, were extremely accomodating always making sure we had everything we needed. It was an extremely relaxing and fun stay. I could not believe the price we...

It is not the most expensive, it is not the least expensive, but for what you get--you cannot find better. As far as I am concerned, it is the best in Ft. Lauderdale. Warren and Ric are the consummate hosts always making sure you are enjoying yourself, that you are relaxing, and that your room is everything you expected. What...
