Airbnb Adventure

The trippy world of Alice in Wonderland is the inspiration for an over-the-top vacation rental in Fort Lauderdale. The five-bedroom layout at 301 Isle of Capri Drive, just a short walk from Las Olas Boulevard, features a Mad Hatter Tea Party dining room, an Enchanted breakfast area, a Distorted Mirrors living room, a human-sized rabbit hole under a hand-painted 3D tree under the staircase—and other novel spaces.

To perfect the Alice in Wonderland concept, designer Dary Rees worked closely with a team of 20 local artists to bring her vision to light. “Creating this house was my dream since I started my business as a vacation rental manager,” she says. “Since I am also a designer, I always aim to add art and design aspects to all my properties, to make them unique and stand out from others.”

The spectacular villa features room for the entire group to spread out and enjoy: two king bedrooms and three queen bedrooms plus four and half bathrooms. Standouts include: The Queen Of Mending Hearts bedroom, which Rees says “is about a good queen with good intentions to help lovers come back together, but who also has a short temper. If the lovers are difficult to deal with, she just screams, ‘Off with their heads!’” The Mushroom Forest bedroom is an adult intake of Alice walking in a forest of huge mushrooms, and in Rees’ story, “those are glow-in-the-dark psychedelic mushrooms.” The Very Scary Forest bedroom is “a really creepy room where the dark shadows of the forest try to catch you while you sleep. You can also see glow-in-the-dark eyes, watching you there,” she explains. Visit bit.ly/flwonderland for more details.

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
