Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday home in South Middle River - Middle River Landing Pool View

One Bedroom / One Bath apartment, Overlooking Pool In A Large Contemporary Home

This is the other unit in the same home as property #724401, if this unit is booked, see the other unit.

So glad you have found us, the heated pool is shared with my husband and I who live downstairs, we are an all gay male household, the pool is clothing optional, (semi-private) the hot tub is more private.

We are walkable to the nightlife in Wilton manors. We are also on a canal so you can kayak right from the house. The apartment upstairs that you are renting, is very nice with all the amenities that you will need for your stay. Very nice private balcony to start your morning with coffee overlooking the pool and canal.

We are a 10 minute drive from the beach for day-time beach fun.

Comfortable surroundings, lots of amenities, new Samsung Smart TV with Netflix and very fast Broadband WiFi.

Beach umbrella's, coolers, chairs available to take for your day adventure to the beach. When you return, enjoy a relaxing cocktail by the heated pool or a soak in the hot tub before heading our of the evening for dinner and cocktails.

Great location with lots of parking, very private yard with clothing optional hot tub, sparkling heated pool and water view onto the canal. The hot tub and pool are shared with the guys that live downstairs.

This rental is a one bedroom with king bed and private bath apartment upstairs with private entrance and private balcony.

Close to all the gay bars and restaurants in Wilton Manors, or enjoy an evening at home by the pool, or grilling some dinner and then a nice soak in the hot tub in the very private tropical yard.

We are close to all the many places to visit nightly, but have a quiet oasis where you can relax and charge your batteries.

The refundable security deposit is automatically returned through the Homeaway website within 7 days after your checkout (assuming there is no damage).

For more than a decade, Wilton Manors has been known anecdotally as South Florida’s gayest city. The 2010 U.S. Census has provided numbers to back up that reputation: With about 140 per 1,000, Wilton Manors is the No. 2 city nationally in percentage of same-sex couples, second to Provincetown, Mass.

For entertainment in the area there are more than we can list, but a few of the highlights are

Perfect Wilton Manors Guest House

  • 5 of 5

This was an ideal place for us during our eight night stay. The apartment was clean, modern, and had a beautiful view of the pool, dock, and the lush landscaping. The king size bed was very comfortable. Our hosts were so accommodating and went above and beyond to make sure we had an enjoyable experience. We highly recommend staying here.

Fantasic getaway

  • 5 of 5

The poolside view apartment was great. It was very clean and newly renovated. The location was perfect, close to activity in Wilton Manors while maintaining a peaceful ambience to enjoy the pool area.

We will definitely be back...with friends

Safe, secure, private, FABULOUS

  • 5 of 5

The description of this property in the listings does not do it justice, you have to experience being there to realise how good it is.

For example: take a dip in the heated pool (We've been in many so-called heated pools) and you might think you were taking a warm bath.

For example: the main bed is not just King sized - but E N O R M O U S - certainly by European standards and is very comfortable.

And I could go on.

The location is excellent, close to supermarkets and restaurants, 20mins (or so: depending on traffic on Sunrise B.vd) to the beach, and the house is in a mainly quiet residential area. It feels safe and secure.

Scott and Rod are great hosts: friendly, helpful, there when you need, them but not intrusive.

Would we go again - well, feeling a little lost at finding that next year (Feb 2017) is already booked - if you are thinking of visiting, don't hesitate.

Couldn't have asked for a better stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is such a perfect getaway location. First thing first, Scott and Rod are such welcoming hosts. We felt at home immediately. We truly feel as if we've made friends and that's probably the best thing we've taken from the trip.

The grounds are spot on perfect. Everything you need s available. The pool and hot tub are lovely. The apartment itself is warm and inviting and we have never slept so well...that is one comfortable bed! The strip is an easy walk, or a quick drive. We had such a wonderful time and can't wait for our next stay. Thank you boys for being above and beyond incredible hosts. This has been a very special experience.
