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 Wilton Manors is filled with shopping restaurants bars and more.

Come to enjoy the sunshine, ocean and great nightlife!

Top Notch Apartment, Facilities, & Hosts

  • 5 of 5

You really could not ask for a better place to stay. This was our 3rd or 4th visit at MRL, and it just improves every time we visit. The apartment is very clean & very well equipped and the amenities are superb. The pool and hot tub and enclosed yard are absolutely gorgeous as are the hosts, Scott & Rod. It is a very warm & inviting place to spend some time. We had some friends over, and they were very impressed with the whole place. Even the other couple in the other unit were friendly and good company. It is always a delight to stay at MLR.

Great hosts, great apartment, great location

  • 5 of 5

We were able to do everything we wanted from Scott’s place. We had a car rental, but walked and/or Lyfted to and from Wilton Manor bars and restaurants. Sebastian beach was just a short drive down Sunrise. We enjoyed the Ft Lauderdale water taxi and the river walk. We drove down to South Beach for lunch and shopping one afternoon. The Apt. Very quite and peaceful even though it’s close in to the nightlife. The shower was amazing, the bed extremely comfortable. The kitchen was perfect for breakfasts and snacks. We could cook a dinner, but why bother with all the restaurants around. The salt water pool was very pretty. I highly recommend Scott’s place. Thanks Scott!!

Photos don't do this house justice--truly amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

Scott and Arthur were amazing hosts from the time we arrived until the minute we left. They were both quick to reply to our questions about the area, the home and anything else we may have needed throughout our stay. This was the first time I used VRBO/Homestay to book a vacation, but nothing was forgotten in the unit or the home overall that we could have needed.

We got to enjoy not only Ft Lauderdale, but a day in Miami as well due to its close proximity to their home. We got to go kayaking; which was a first for me, as well as, experience many other local tourist attractions. The surrounding area is full of great restaurants for every meal, and the beaches are wonderful as well! All told this was one of my best vacations ever and much of that is thanks to the hospitality of our hosts and their lovely home/apartment that we rented from them!

As good as the pictures.

  • 5 of 5

We had high expectations going in given the beautiful pictures taken from various angles on the property. Our expectations were exceeded. This is more like renting a full one bedroom condo unit in a small private complex. Scott was great and very personable. The unit itself was clean, quiet and very up-to-date. Nice bathroom and great shower. The bed was comfortable too. Either a short walk or a $5 Lyft over to the heart of Wilton Manor. Would stay here again in a heartbeat

Gracious Hosts and Beautiful Property

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for an A-1 appointed property, look no further. Scott & Roderick are definitely the hosts with the most. Every detail was given the utmost attention. I have stayed here on multiple occasions and have never been disappointed. Lush private areas on the property give way to a gorgeous free-form pool get away. A naturist's sanctuary at the least. Thank you, guys for never disappointing.

Wonderfuil, peaceful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

I spent 5 days after Christmas at this rental and it was perfect. The owners were wonderful and made sure I had everything I needed. I enjoyed the full kitchen so I did not need to go out to eat all of the time. The apartment was supplied with everything you need, and it is very modern and clean. The use of the pool and jacuzzi was great to have. It is a very quiet, peaceful place to stay and would highly recommend it. The location was great - easy walk to the clubs and shops, but you definitely need a car to get to the beaches. A perfect place for a single or couple to stay.
