About Layne

My partner and I bought and completely renovated this property in the last year. Our goal was to create a beautiful, calm space for people to relax, swim and get away.

Layne purchased this house in 2011

Why Layne chose Downtown

Wilton Manors is a wonderful and diverse town in Fort Lauderdale. The house is located in a quiet and beautiful neighborhood, close to all the entertainment and restaurants of Wilton Drive.

Guestbook comments from the manager

"...My wife and I enjoyed your home in Wilton Manors. We have rented many vacation homes in Florida and across the country, and this may be the first time when the home out shines the photos. You anticipated everything a vacationer could possibly need. We only spent one day at the beach because we enjoyed the pool and backyard landscaping so much. Please let me know when you have the rental schedule for 2014, we would like to return for 2 or 3 weeks next year."

Top Destination Home

  • 5 of 5

This home is the reason that the "HomeAway" name exists - it truly feels like home.

After four visits to this property over several years, we can say without reservation that this is exactly what we look for in a vacation home. 1) It's close to everything that's good about the destination - in this case Wilton Manors and Ft. Lauderdale. 2) It's supremely comfortable. 3) It has a luxurious, heated pool in a tropical setting. 4) The design is thoughtful and well-executed. 5) It has a combination resort/home feel that elevates the vacation experience.

We travel frequently (6 to 8 times a year) and use VRBO/HomeAway exclusively for our trips which usually last from two to four weeks each, so we've come to know the shortcuts that owners and managers can take with their properties. These folks care about the guest experience.

Highly recommended.

We’ve stayed at The 500 three times now and have loved it every time. Location is great, pool is spectacular and it’s so comfortable. We’ll be back often

An enjoyable stay in a nice, safe, quiet area

  • 5 of 5

We are two couples who visited Florida for the warm weather and to play golf. We were not disappointed on either and we were very happy staying in this villa in Wilton Manors. The back yard is beautifully landscaped and very private. We were particularly pleased that you don't have to drive to restaurants as there are several within a 15 minute walk of the property. The owner and the local agent were very attentive and reactive.

Loved the pool

  • 3 of 5

Loved the pool but some of the amenities were a disappointment. The grill was in horrible shape and the dishwasher wasn't working the last couple of days of our stay. I will say the house was very clean since I am alittle OCD.

This property us just as described, a beautiful, quiet retreat. Very clean, beautifully decorated.

  • 5 of 5

We were here with friends for two weeks and had a wonderful time. The house is in a great neighborhood, within walking distance to restaurants and bars and a short drive to the beach and area hot spots.

Layne has the house stocked with everything you need to make you feel right at home, and Paul, the property manager answers calls/texts immediately.

The house is beautifully decorated and very clean.

The back yard is a quiet oasis with a beautiful pool, complete with tables, chairs, lounges and BBQ, the perfect place to relax and enjoy the Florida sunshine.

Fantastic, private home with all the amenities

  • 5 of 5

Great place. The house was in a quiet neighborhood within walking distance (< 1 mile) to restaurants and Publix. The giant picture windows overlooking the pool and gardens are great when the mornings are too cool to go outside or in the evening. Bed was comfortable. Kitchen was well appointed. Would definitely recommend and also stay here again.
