FL Vacation Connection looks forward to welcoming you to Malibu, where three beautiful palm trees stand at attention to greet you as you pull into the driveway of this perfectly sized home. Relaxing in the Sunshine State is a gift, and sometimes that gift keeps giving. To keep your car out of the direct sunlight, there is access to the two-car garage. That, too, is a gift!

Once inside, you’ll know why you chose Malibu for your vacation home ... it has everything you could want to make your time here simply perfect. Comfortable sofas in the Living Room and Family Room make for great conversation or movie watching. A formal Dining Area and a Breakfast Nook are perfectly situated for those times you’d like to enjoy your meal in the air-conditioning.

The open Kitchen claims it’s rightful spot in the center of the home. Here everyone is invited to lend a hand with prepping and cooking favorite meals. And if they aren’t inclined to help with meals, popping some popcorn for movie nights is easy peasy.

Looking to go for an after dinner stroll? St. Armands Circle is as sweet as it can get ... and it’s in walking distance! There is plenty of window shopping that can be done, or perhaps enjoy an after dinner drink at one of the many restaurants. This is vacation, why not do both?

The beautifully kept garden has the perfect amount of sun and shade so that you can enjoy your outdoor time to the fullest. From the pool to the canal, from the poolside lounge chairs to the garden lounge chairs, and from taking cover under the shade to sunbathing on the dock, a voice inside will confirm, "Yes, this is paradise"!

Breathe in the beauty of the sun setting over the canal. Take a relaxing soak in the hot tub. Get into comfy clothes and enjoy some down time with friends and family. Tomorrow will be another bright, sunshiny day!

IF BRINGING A BOAT THERE ARE BRIDGE HEIGHT RESTRICTIONS.

NO TRAILERS/BOAT TRAILERS OF ANY TYPE ALLOWED ON PREMISES. PLEASE CALL OUR OFFICE FOR A SOLUTION IF YOU NEED TO STORE YOUR TRAILER.

Convenient location

by Bridget G

We have stayed in Malibu several times and love the convenience of its location to St. Armand’s Circle. Have always enjoyed working with FVC!

Perfect home, relaxing vacation.

by Jeanne

We so enjoyed staying in the Malibu home. Perfect home, relaxing vacation. The house was a wonderful to enjoy family time, pool area wonderful. We all loved the dock to fish and just sit under the tree and enjoy the view. Perfect location, one block from the circle. Check in/out process easy. This house would be a definite must again!

What a perfect spot

by Sara L

We had a group of friends stay to celebrate our 50th birthday. What a perfect spot. The house is located walking distance to everything, restaurants, shops, and the beach. The house was clean and spacious with a beautiful pool and right on the canal. Perfect spot to take a glass of wine down on the dock and watch the manatees go by. The rental agency was super easy to work with, very nice and attentive if you need anything at all. We would most certainly rent this house again. The only slight inconvenience was that they don’t use a key code to get into the house. You have two actual keys that need to be picked up in their office in Long Boat Key (which is only 10 minutes away). Not so inconvenient that we wouldn’t stay again, but just needed to note that.

 

Hi Sara.  Thanks so much for staying with us.  Delighted to see you enjoyed your  time at the Malibu Home by FVC!  And for such a special occasion!  

We appreciate the feedback about the key aspect and will keep trying to get our owners to update to keyless entry where we can.

Clean and well appointed

by Patricia K.

We loved our stay at Malibu. The house is in a perfect location. It is close to the beach and St. Armand’s circle. We love watching the manatees off the dock. The house is always clean when we arrive and well appointed. The pool is very refreshing after a morning at the beach. It is perfect for our crew of 8 (6 adults & 2 children). We will be back!!

Thank you for you kind words.  All of us at FVC are delighted to have you return each year.  Looking forward to welcoming you back next year!   Jeff - FVC

Great house

by The Farmer Family

This is the second time my family has stayed in this house. We came back because we really enjoy most everything about the house. We love the pool and the outdoor space. The view of the canal is beautiful. The location of the house is perfect. It’s minutes from the circle and a short walk to the beach. You can’t ask for much better. The only critique would be the mattresses on the beds either need to be replaced or a nice pillow top needs to be added. Other than that we would seriously consider this house again and would definitely recommend it .

Thank you so much for choosing this great home managed by FVC.  We appreciate your feedback on the beds and have shared your recommendation with the owner.   The full sized bed in the guest bedroom was just installed on May 9, 2023.    Jeff

Great location

by Tim

Great location. Two blocks from beach and one block from St Armand's. Hot tub and heated pool were great for family. We will return. Management company great to deal with. Only recommendation is to implement a key lockbox to avoid drive to the rental office.

Spacious house

by Karen

Great big spaceous house.. Great for family/ large group! Plenty of room to spread out. Fun big kitchen with seating area and TV. Great location for getting to St Armands Circle. The not so perfect side.. house pretty dated just as far as decor style.. like 1980s Florida decor? But not shabby. Sliders hard to open. Oddly the house is not open VIEW to canal and pier so you almost forgot it was there. Oddly no direct walkway to pier either. Missed design opportunity. Garage filled with bikes and fishing rods and kayaks and surfboards. But most locked up and some bikes had flat tires. Oddly there is nothing in kitchen as far as staples. So remember to bring your own like oil, plastic wrap, sugar, extra kitchen soap laundry soap, tin foil, pepper towels. Etc. Worst part was very bad mattress in master. Didn't sleep well first couple nights. Also remember you have to drive half way up Longboat to get keys. No keypad entry. But rental agents extremely nice! And responsive. Close to beach but doesn't feel like it since no direct road. Luckily the rest of family at Limetree Resort. Sounds like we didn't like it but we did. And it's a great place for a group to gather.

Canal perfect

by Patricia

We love staying at the Malibu property in Lido Key. It is located within walking distance to the beach and restaurants/shops. Being located right on a canal makes it perfect for fishing and watching the manatees that hang out there.  This property is perfect for our family of eight.

Spacious house

by Heather

This house is just a couples short blocks to St Armands Circle and the beach. Or you can stay and enjoy the private pool or fish off of the dock on the canal. We had 6 adults (3 couples) and it was spacious enough that we weren't on top of each other. The only thing I would recommend is an updated coffee maker that has auto shut off and better quality knives. The knives there are so dull that they are dangerous to use. Overall our stay was great and we enjoyed our time there.

We will be back

by Tracie S

This was the 1st time staying on Lido Key. It did not disappoint! This house has beautiful gardens and beautiful setting. We rented a boat and the dock was perfect. Our kids loved being so close to the restaurants and shops. It was a perfect location for our family that lives only 4 miles from there. We will definitely be back.

Beautiful house

by Pam F

Beautiful House - Great Location!

We have been coming for many years. This was the first time at Malibu. It was clean and well supplied. We always stay around St. Armands Circle. I would definitely recommend! We were 8 people and it was perfect - 2 families. We will rent again.

Beautiful property & fabulous location!

We were very happy with this beautiful property. It was clean and well maintained. We loved that we could walk to the restaurants and shops on St. Armand's Circle and would not hesitate to stay here again in the future.!
