The owners of the former Fort Lauderdale home of the late David Cassidy are marketing it as a short-term rental for $1,500 a night and up.

Cassidy, the singer of such hit songs as “I Think I Love You” and star of the popular 1970s sitcom The Partridge Family, died in November at age 67.

He owned a 7,000-square-foot house with six bedrooms at 1600 South Ocean Drive in Fort Lauderdale. Records show Cassidy paid $1.1 million for the property in 2001.

Two Maryland-based investors, Thomas White and Scott Watkins, bought the house in a 2015 auction after Cassidy filed for bankruptcy.

White told that he and Watkins are both in their 50s and “grew up with David Cassidy and the TV show.”

They are marketing Cassidy’s old house as a short-term rental called Casa de Mayan.

White said the property is an homage to Cassidy, filled with photos of the singer and TV star and furnished with his old cocktail bar and a desk where he wrote music. [] Mike Seemuth
