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

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. The apartment has a very nice eat in kitchen with dishwasher, stove and microwave, and nice living space.

For day-time beach time we are just 10 minute drive to the beach.

Comfortable surroundings, lots of amenities, new LG Smart TV with Netflix, 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 owners that live downstairs.

This rental is a one bedroom with king bed and private bath apartment upstairs with private entrance and large kitchen and eating area.

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

Alibi of Wilton manors

This was an "OASIS"!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I had an amazing stay in Scott's place. Scott made sure that we had everything we needed. We stayed in the larger apartment upstairs and it was truly a home away from home. The pool, the hot tub, the grill...it was all amazing. We never really had to leave the house and still felt we were on vacation. A couple times in the evening Scott, Sean, and even the guest in the other apartment came out to chat. He made us feel really at home. The location is amazing and it's close to quite a few restaurants and bars. I can honestly say this home was amazing and we will definitely be staying with Scott again.

Confortsble, well appointed one bedroon apartment with a full kitchen & use of the building's pool,

  • 5 of 5

Spending the winter in Scott's apartment was a wonderful experience. He & his partner Rod were great hosts, friendly & very accommodating to our needs. The apartment itself was attractively appointed and well supplied. We could be as private as we wished or could interact with our hosts & other guests as we chose. By the end we had become good friends with Scott & Rod & some of the guests in the other unit. The apartment is only a short walk from Wilton Drive with its many restaurants & entertainments, & it's an easy drive to Ft. Lauderdale beach. This is a great unit & worthy of another stay.

Wonderful Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

I just returned from a four night stay and the building and grounds are beautiful. It was unfortunate that the weather did not cooperate but the pool view guest suite was immaculate and everything you need for an enjoyable stay is provided. The location can't be beat and I plan on returning in the future! Thank you Scott for your wonderful hospitality.

Middle River Landing? Middle River Serenity!

  • 5 of 5

My partner & I had an amazing time at Middle River Landing for 10 days over the Christmas holiday! We were there for medical reasons, but the kindness the guys showed us, along with the resort-like feel of the place made us feel at home and was a total respite for us. We ended up needing to show up a day early, and Scott was not only accommodating, but made it super easy to do as well!

Having the pool area (gorgeously lit up every night I might add!) and hot tub to come home to was just what we needed after a long day of running around Fort Lauderdale, and the guys were friendly, accommodating and available whenever we needed them, yet not too intrusive. I enjoyed the few times we were able to hang out at the gazebo between the pool & the canal with them too!

The apartment itself was amazing as well! We had a few days where we didn't go anywhere, and ended up just lounging around. The whole place made it so easy to not care about missing some of the sights around Fort Lauderdale.

We might just have to head there again next winter to try and get the rest of the sites in.... That is if we can pull ourselves away from the serenity of the Landing! What more could there be than an amazing personal private resort on the canal?

Not much.

At least I don't think so. ;)

Great place in Wilton Manors!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great property. It's new and very clean. And very private. The "Garden View" apartment we stayed in was bigger/roomier than we expected. The pool is heated and very nice. The owners were very friendly. Better than I expected. It's very close to bars, you (Georgie's Alibi is about a 10 minute walk, or a very cheap and easy Uber). Thank you!!! I highly recommend this place!!
