Fort Lauderdale Stay's Mission Statement

What We Do

Our mission at Fort Lauderdale Stays is quite simple. We strive to provide a professional and positive experience to our vacationers and the owners that we represent. We achieve this by fitting the “right” vacation rental with the “right” vacationer in the “right" neighborhood and community. Our properties are chosen very carefully to keep you, the vacationer, in mind at all times.

We strive to provide clean, quality and comfortable accommodations with personalized service in a positive work environment. We know from experience that our formula will make your vacation destination a true home away from home.

Meet the Team

David Packard


An entrepreneur by heart, my passion has always been to treat people the way I would like to be treated. Born and raised in a small town in Wisconsin my desire was to be in a big city and be able to meet all different kinds of people. I bought my first vacation home in Montreal in 2000 and have owned a vacation home in Fort Lauderdale since 2007. Fort Lauderdale, Florida was a destination to live for a long time and am now happy to call it my full-time home since 2007. What a great place to be!

Steve Mosher


Vice President
Joined Fort Lauderdale Stays in 2012 and comes from Washington State with a degree in Recreation and Commercial Tourism. After 10 years in Palm Springs, California, I put my finger on the map and Fort Lauderdale was where it landed and has been my home since 2009. Travel and Tourism have always been a passion for me; from International Travel to Specialty Tour Companies and Resort Management. Creating memorable vacation experiences and meeting people from around the globe truly makes me happy.

Nicole Austin


Housekeeping Manager

Joined Fort Lauderdale Stays in 2013.  I always knew I was destined for the tourism industry after attending Travel School of America in my home state of Massachusetts. I moved to Fort Lauderdale in 2005 and have spent many years in corporate travel as the hotel industry. A happy mother of three, I am proud and pleased to service the needs of all our guests in every aspect of housekeeping services and in welcoming you to the beautiful city of Fort Lauderdale which I am proud to call home.



Originally from Honduras, I moved to the United States in 1989 to pursue studies in Hospitality Management. After graduating from Purdue University in Indiana in 1993, I worked in hotels, restaurants and major retail stores. In 2009, I moved to Fort Lauderdale where I started a new career in home improvements. I have vast experience in painting, problem-solving and finding creative solutions for repairs and property restorations. I am very proud to be a part of the Fort Lauderdale Stays team.
