Why Melanie Kimpton chose Fort Lauderdale

I choose Wilton Manors because it is a very secure neighbourhood, close to the beach and great little cafés and boutiques. It is a very charming island in the middle of Fort Lauderdale.

Private Paradise

  • 5 out of 5
What an amazing place to stay, it actually exceeded our already high expectations. Property and pool area were very well maintained and furnished to a very high standard. Location is excellent and owners were a pleasure to deal with. I would highly recommend Secret Garden and hope to return again in the not too distant future.

The property was exactly as indicated and very clean. Beautifully landscaped and very well-equipped house. We very much appreciated the baby facilities for our daughter's one year-old.

Great Thanksgiving Vacation

  • 5 out of 5
House is as described. Owner is super quick to respond to emails. In fact my kids wanted to watch some channels they didn't get and after an email he ordered the extra channels and we were up in 20 minutes. Pool is great, super private, we swam every morning and evening. Great kitchen and BBQ, very economical cooking at home instead of eating out. Would definitely stay there again.

Location

Location

Car: recommended

Fort Lauderdale is famous for its beaches, arts, food, culture and events. From shopping on Las Olas Boulevard, the world-famous beaches, to gondola rides on the canals, to a historic riverfront, Fort Lauderdale is what a vacation should be.

The City of Wilton Manors is just north of downtown Fort Lauderdale and is often referred to as the “Island City” because its boundaries primarily follow the North and South Forks of the Middle River. Ideally located within minutes of the beach and downtown Fort Lauderdale, Wilton Manors is quickly becoming the “place to be” in South Florida.

The area adjacent to Wilton Drive, the City’s signature thoroughfare, is home to the Arts and Entertainment District. Within the District, mixed-use development provides for a pedestrian-oriented environment where residents and visitors can shop, dine, and experience the best of South Florida Living. The City has a great deal of parks and open space as well.

Other Activities: Taking sun in a variety of ways; at the beach, renting a boat for the day or just relaxing in your private pool. There is also shopping, jet-skying, parasailing, health/beauty spa, racquetball, miniature golf, admiring the amazing houses up & down the intercostal or just taking advantage of the abundance of incredible restaurants beach-side or throughout the city.

Golf: There is a brochure in the house which indicates the nearest golf courses.
