We are a small inn which has been family owned and run for over five decades now. What was once a classic 50's motor inn has been transformed into a lush, tropical paradise reminiscent of old Florida. For three generations, we have offered the same friendly and casual hospitality that the tropics is known for. Here you will find a charming and unique atmosphere and an authentic attitude toward service.

Your room will be as pictured, if you need beds put together for couples please notify us.

The space

With rooms overlooking both our shady, verdant garden and our sunny poolside deck, you will truly get a taste of old Florida. Just steps from the beach, our small inn is a great place to enjoy a vacation by the ocean. We are located in the heart of Fort Lauderdale, close to many scenic attractions such as Birch State Park and the Bonnet House, many shops and restaurants near Sunrise beach and on Las Olas boulevard.

Each room comes equipped with a kitchenette or full kitchen with a refrigerator and cooking utensils. Most rooms are one-room studio apartments as snowbirds often stay for the entire winter.

Rooms have 2 Single beds that can be fitted as a King size, we are working on getting Queen/King size in the future.

Guest access

Our guests have access to the pool from 8 am - 8 pm, a self service barbecue grill, a BYOB bar, table tennis, coin operated laundry facilities, WiFi, and complementary parking.

Interaction with guests

We live on the grounds, and we are available to help make your stay more pleasant during normal working hours (9-5) and for any emergencies that occur after hours. The rooms are serviced Monday - Friday, but if you need fresh towels on the weekends, feel free to let us know.

Other things to note

In our lobby, we offer information on various local attractions.

Our place is charming and small, and we offer a warmer and more local experience than a standardized business hotel or off-ramp motel with the opportunity to socialize with other guests if desired or keep to yourself.

For the last ten years, we have been providing accommodation to English language school students who stay for weeks or months at a time.

This place is charming, great location, clean, and Max and Gina take good care of you! They got us beach chairs and umbrellas and beach towels. This location is perfect - 5 min walk to beach!!!! The pool is really nice as well if you want to sun bathe by the pool. Definitely coming back!

5 minutes walk to the beach. Centrally located to lots of great eats and treats. Minutes away from a local cigar bar. Would definitely stay again!

Max and Gina's place is a cute little inn that is lush with greenery and less than five minutes walking from the beach. It's quiet, has a charming, cheery style, and an outdoor pool in the back. Check-in was easy and they were very responsive when I needed something. Good value, great location, great hosts!

I had a nice stay there. It was a nice old style place. The room I had could have probably needed a good clean because there was dead bugs on the bed and in drawers. Mosquitoes were a problem. They could add a mosquito repellent lamb or something but the stay was nice. 5 minute walk to the beach. Quiet area. Have stores and malls close by. Overall stay 3 stars.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the green island inn this past week and loved it! Very private, clean and the hosts were kind and accommodating. We miss it already and would definitely return. Overall we had a wonderful experience and would definitely recommend it to anyone!

Max & Gina User Profile

Hi, we're Max (24) and Gina (21) and we're Fort Lauderdale natives.
We love traveling, and we've spent time backpacking around Europe and Asia, and we hope to have the opportunity to travel more in the future. For now, we're enjoying what our own area has to offer: beautiful beaches, waterways to explore, a ton of bars and restaurants, and different events every weekend.

We've stayed in a lot of different airbnb properties, motels, hotels, campgrounds, etc. over the years, so we try to offer what we would like: a relaxing environment where you can live as you like.
