We had a great stay! The house was exactly as portrayed in the photos. It was what we needed on vacation. Cooking in the huge kitchen was great too! Beds and linens were super comfy and the house was decorated beautifully. The pool was a little confusing to get the fountain feature and couldn't find the lights. Would definitely stay again.

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The house had everything we needed to make our trip a fun, enjoyable family trip. The location is perfect. The neighborhood is quiet but you are still close to all of the shopping centers and malls.

Overall positive but....

  • 4 of 5

My partner and I stayed at this property for 10 days. We are frequent travelers to Fort Lauderdale. Overall the house is beautiful and very private. The photos are spot on for the interior of the house. The interior is very modern and extremely clean. The open layout and view of the pool from the living room was amazing. We loved the house itself and closeness to restaurants and shops.

However, the exterior is what I had issues with. We arrived with a pool filled with debris from the foliage that surrounds the pool. There were several fallen palms on the property that I had to remove as they were large. The outside seating table was dirty and covered in debris. There were cigarette buts around the surrounding areas of the house. The outside perimeter walkway lights do not work. One of the lion heads that spits out water in the pool was broken from a leak. There are 2 lights in the pool for nighttime swimming and only 1 worked. There is a lot of daily debris that falls in the pool that I had to skim several times a day despite the pool service that comes twice a week. Overall this is very nice property and we had a great stay.

Great Vacation Property!

  • 5 of 5

This location was perfect for the quiet week away with my wife. Quiet neighborhood, the house stocked with plenty of dishes and essentials and was very clean. The pool was very clean and we spent hours laying by the pool reading. About a 10 min drive down to the beach so that was very convenient. We had a great time and would recommend this to anyone. This would also be a nice place for a small family with children or a few couples who want to vacation together

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.
