Its a great area to walk and feel safe and comfortable. There is a lot to see because the neighborhood is so lush with landscaping and nature. Its very common to see people strolling at dusk enjoying a nice walk. Plus a few roller bladers and people walking their dogs is not uncommon. Its what you expect from a friendly neighborhood.

Eric was super kind and a great host. Every question I had he came back with an answer within a minute or so. The space is very cozy, and stocked with all the miscellaneous kitchenware I didn't think to bring. The pool was heated and very well-kept. As far as value goes, there's no competition. I split it with a friend and it beat any hotel I've ever stayed at, and I like to take a few trips a year. I'd no doubt come back. It's also super close to Manor, Eric said it was a $6 Uber and there's lots of good eatin' in the area.

Pool area was beautiful. Everything was great. We would highly recommend this cottage!

The place is awesome! Where do I begin? With the host Eric, I guess. He was welcoming us with great travel ideas for our vacation even before we arrived. Our flight had us there in the evening, and it was a breeze finding the house. It's a big beautiful home in lovely and exclusive Wilton Manors. An evening arrival was great, so our first impression was of the very impressive landscape lighting. It looked like we had arrived at a mansion in Beverly Hills! Then, once we parked in the paved circular driveway, we opened the gate to see the pool... so inviting all lit up at night after our flight. Once inside, we were still even more impressed... so many fine details throughout: 1.) lovely travertine tile floors throughout (set on a diagonal for an even classier effect) 2.) marble window sills 3.) countless vacation brochures to help with planning our visit 4.) a television in the living room as well as in the bedroom 5.) notes and binders with everything we needed and then some about the property and the neighborhood... even quite a few menus from local restaurants that delivered (a great touch for those new to the area or just weary travelers) 6.) a beautiful comforter set on the king sized bed! 7.) oversized beach towels to enjoy after a dip in the pool 8.) plantation shutters and blackout shades throughout (again, a great touch for a restful stay) 9.) many shower soaps and even treats in the immaculate kitchen We felt like family with our host checking in to make sure everything was going well and making himself available for anything we might need. Don't think any more about it... BOOK YOUR STAY AT ERIC'S and enjoy your vacation! You will not regret it. All of this for a one week stay at less than the cost of one night in a South Beach luxury hotel!

The appartment was perfect for our 14days Florida stay. Located in a friendly, calm and safe neighbourhood, 3 Miles away from the beach. The new AC's are working perfect, as well as the one from the main house. Pool area is very nice, especially with lamps in the evening. We highly recommend The appartment if you don't expect super luxury, but a fully equipt appartment as a starting Point to discover South Florida. Eric was very helpful answering questions before and during our stay. He was a great host.

The boat is in the water so we took a boat to the boat we live. The weather was too bad raining and wide from 3 am to 5:30 am. Hot in the Boad and swing string made us all sick. 6:30 am we left the boat by owner picked up us from the sea. Anyway. It is exiting no sleeping night.

I am a Real Estate Broker in Fort Lauderdale Florida and own an assortment of vacation rentals across the united states and in Europe.
I visit all the vacation rentals always looking for ways to make them better and better and share the use of them when I am not there.
I really enjoy staying at anyplace than a boring hotel but rather bed n breakfasts, or vacation rentals wherever I travel in the world. The experience is priceless when you get to see it through the eyes of a local resident.
Staying in hotels is very touristy in my opinion. Staying in a local home is experience! The AirBNB site is wonderful connection place to match people with places. I have made many friends across the world as a result.

I love entertaining and hosting guests which gives me pleasure to be able to share what I have built with other people.

I will say this that many people are nervous their first time, but after the first time then they are addicted to vacation rentals! They are cheaper, more private, and most provide cooking facilities that you can save a lot of money on eating out. Plus you can take away different ideas and learn different ways people live. One example is in Europe that there are no clothes dryers in most apartments. I never really put clothes on a clothesline until coming to Europe. Its very different and very interesting. These are the types of experiences you get with a vacation type rental.
