About Lynda Brown

Hello! I am Lynda Brown and I manage this property for my family. We have been doing short term rentals for many years in a variety of locations. This property, located in East Wilton Manors (also considered East Fort Lauderdale) is close to all the wonderful things that South Florida has to offer. We will do our best to insure a comfortable stay in this immaculate property.

I came to Florida after the 1989 real estate recession in the Northeast. (I owned a Real Estate Brokerage in Boston.) In Real Estate brokerage and development long before face book, our Florida family brokerage knows how to be there to guide, advise and share our experience in Florida to our guests and clients.

Lynda Brown purchased this apartment in 2000

Why Lynda Brown chose Fort Lauderdale

This property is comfortable, immaculate, and spacious, and has a private, fully fenced yard as well as a full private indoor laundry. Located 2 blocks West of the main road where you will find all the shopping, bars and restaurants you might need. Ft. Lauderdale Beach is a 10 minute drive! Downtown Wilton Manors is also just a 10 minute drive. Ft. Lauderdale, with entertainment galore and natural as well as human-made beauty, is just outside your door.

What makes this apartment unique

This property is well located and welcomes your pet. Spacious and lovingly furnished, it is reasonably priced for your escape to South Florida! The space feels great! Private laundry and yard! Terrific location with easy access to all South Florida has to offer. Come and enjoy.

Perfect location, close to the beach, owners were helpful and very nice.

  • 4 of 5

This is a great little place in an awesome location! And it really felt more like a home vs a vacation rental.

5 min drive to the beach, bars, restaurants, pharmacy, grocery. Lynda was very flexible and easy to communicate with.

We loved our stay.

Couldn't ask for more

  • 5 of 5

We arrived 3 hours later than expected and even turned right when we should have turned left. But Lynda guided us to her home, even standing out front so she could see us as we approached the neighborhood. She quickly invited us in, took the time to call a local restaurant to see if they were still open since we didn't arrive until after 11 PM. Then she drew us a map where the major roads were so I would know to go left instead of right.

Everything was as described and more. We enjoyed our stay have no complaints. I would stay again if in the area and I would recommend Lynda's accommodations to everyone. Added bonus was the use of the washer and dryer including the detergents.

Really nice stay

  • 4 of 5

Really nice apartment in a good neighborhood. You have everything you need (shops, restaurants) close by. About 10min by car to FL Beach and about 30min to Sawgrass Shopping Outlet. Linda is a great host and ensured that we had what we needed. She helped us with renting a baby crip and even picked it up for us! The only thing is, you should not be over sensitive with traffic noise as it is not extremely quite. But honestly, I think this is true for the most apartments in Fort Lauderdale. So it would not stop me for going there again.

Terrific Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This property is in the middle of everything! It seemed like it only took five or ten minutes to get anywhere we wanted to go - the beach, the mall, Wilton Drive - you name it, it's close by. Plus, the home itself is charming, clean and spacious. We enjoyed every aspect of the stay, and the homeowner, Lynda, was a sweetheart. She's kind and generous, and made our stay even more special. I highly recommend this property for anyone who wants to stay in South Florida!!

Exceptional rental and location!!!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this lovely place for two months while I looked for a home to buy in Ft Lauderdale. It was the perfect place for me. It is furnished beautifully with all you could need. The owner is always available if any issue should arise and I'm happy to say there were none for me.

The back yard was wonderful and I spent a lot of time out there. She has a wicker love-seat and two wicker chairs along with a table. There is also a table and chairs as well as an umbrella. It's fenced in and I loved the privacy and beautiful view of the trees and sky.

Neighbors were friendly and it was a great area to walk my dog!

It was a joy to live in and I was grateful to have found the perfect place for me until I found my home in a location nearby. It is so close to so many businesses which made it easy to shop for whatever I needed.

I highly recommend this beautiful rental!!!
