Definitely Clean, Quiet & Classic Florida!

  • 4 of 5

The listing was 100% accurate! We were welcomed with a bottle of wine and popcorn and the house was great. We vacationed with 2 teenagers, and we felt the area was very safe for them to walk around or toss the football in the yard. We traveled to the beach almost every day. The beaches are clean and easily accessible. You need to drive to the beach and we recommend parking at Sebastian Street and crossing the street to the beach. We had no worries with recyclables and garbage because our neighbor placed our toter at the curb for us. Overall, very nice facilities and location.

Wow, blown away, how beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

I arrived for a week long stay with my wife and two grown up kids (24 & 21). From the moment we stepped in until the moment we left, we were so happy in this home. So clean, so comfortable, close to beach, restaurants and shops and handy for the attractions. Truly a place we were all sad to leave. I hope to return in the not so distant future.

Fantastic Home and Location

  • 5 of 5

Great location - walked to all the restaurants and a few clubs. My partner and I spent our 29th anniversary here. Pictures were accurate and the whole home was very clean. A pool would be a great addition - the back yard is very private and a great place to build a pool. We will gladly stay again and we want to buy the house -lol. We have recommended to friends. Thanks for being such a great host and providing us with an excellent anniversary! Looking forward to our next visit soon.

It was our 1st visit in F-L, and we were lucky to rent in Wilton Manors - very comfortable location. We enjoyed 2 weeks in this nice, quiet,clean and safe place. Great location - close to the beach, downtown, Galleria Mall and other places of interest...

...And a special thanks to Mike for the good wine!!!

This private suite is definitely in a perfect location! In a quiet, upscale and safe neighborhood. It's in the best area of Wilton Manors: An alternative lifestyle island town right in the middle of Fort Lauderdale. Walk to many restaurants, parks, pubs and clubs. Located in the heart of the Wilton Drive side of Wilton Manors (in the best area ... the side east of Andrews Avenue (811A) where your suite is located is much better than the west side of Andrews Avenue ... so check please your location before you book elsewhere). Walk all of Wilton Drive and the best parts of Wilton Manors without worry. Drive just 9 minutes to the Fort Lauderdale beach or 33 minutes to the nude beach at Haulover Beach Park. Drive 8 minutes to downtown Fort Lauderdale's entertainment district, and 7 minutes to the indoor Galleria mall. Take a 29 minute drive to North America's largest outlet mall, Sawgrass Mills, for designer brands at discount prices. Take a short 35 minute highway drive to Miami South Beach and the Art Deco District. Take a day trip to the Bahamas on the Bahamas Express Ferry, located at Port Everglades, Fort Lauderdale ... just a 14 minute drive. ($49.50 one way day trips). ENJOY!

Some personal restaurant and liquor store recommendations:

9 minute drive:

Greek Island Taverna @ 3300 N.Ocean Blvd, Ft Lauderdale - The grilled octopus immersed in lemon-oregano olive oil is out of this world! So is most everything on the menu! Sit outside on the patio and enjoy the wonderful weather, the great food and greek wines!

6 minute drive:

Hot Dog Heaven @ 101 E. Sunrise Blvd., Fort Lauderdale -

Old time Chicago-style beef hot dogs... BEST!

14 minute walk:

Rosie's Bar & Grill @ 2449 Wilton Drive, Wilton Manors- Usually crowded and open later...great variety of food!

9 minute walk:

Alibi's @ 2266 Wilton Drive, Wilton Manors- Always hopping..seriously!

Best 2-4-1 happy hour and the best homemade chicken strips we've ever had! Sit outside on the patio and enjoy the scenery and weather!

9 minute walk:

Tee Jay Thai Sushi @ 2254 Wilton Drive, Wilton Manors- Very good Thai food and delicious fried soft shell crab!


7 minute drive:

Rendezvous Bakery & Bistro @ 1576 E Oakland Park Blvd., Oakland Park, FL - We LOVE this french bakery for breakfast!

Liquor Stores:

5 minute walk:

Wilton Discount Liquor @ 2105 NE 5th Ave and Wilton Drive, Wilton Manors - Great prices and just 2 block walk up the road at the Drive
