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.

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

Amazing vaction spot - Secret Garden

  • 5 of 5

What a great place for a family vacation, the house is spotless and comfortable and its was just perfect. The neighborhood is great the house has everything you can think of.!! The pool is wonderful its clean and relaxing we even used the barbeque and the beach is only about 1 mile away. The one thing that I was surprised by was there is only on television in the living room. If you have kids might want to consider bringing your DVD or laptop if they watch TV at bedtime. Shopping and restaurants are close by and easy to find. Had a magical vacation at the Secret Garden. I highly recommend a stay!!

Incredible House

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from Secret Garden! The house was beautiful, very clean and stocked with everything you need to kick back and relax. The neighborhood is nice and quite and all the neighbors where very friendly, we met several on our evening walks. We enjoyed hours in the pool, which was the perfect temperature. The rental experience with Melanie and Jonathan was a pleasure.

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.
