Great property, Great location, Amazing hosts

  • 5 of 5

This property is everything you would hope for when you book VRBO. Tastefully appointed, decorated, and immaculately clean. The kitchen is well stocked for all of your cooking needs. Easy walking distance into Wilton Manors, but tucked away nicely on the canal for a since of peace and quiet. The grounds are of resort quality. We spent time in the pool and hot tub daily. Sebastian Beach is an easy 10 minute drive, but honestly, we enjoyed much of our time without ever leaving the property. We could not ask for better hosts, and now friends, Rod and Scotty. If you are single or partnered, and looking for an amazing gay owed and catered to property, look no further, you will not find the higher quality in the area.

The property is awesome and I felt right at home.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is spacious, modern and tastefully decorated. Scott and Rod are superb hosts and make you feel like family. The pool, jacuzzi and canal are all nice amenities and the location is ideal: close to the beach and near great restaurants and shopping in Ft Lauderdale and Wilton Manors. It truly is a great place to stay and I will definitely return!

Great place to stay in Wilton Manors!

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nicely appointed spacious apartment. Scott, the owner, has gone above and beyond by including many amenities that we have not seen in other places we have rented. He is also very responsive and easy to deal with.

The bedroom and the living room are very modern but comfortable and the kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need (pots, pans dishes, etc.) You even have a cocktail shaker to make martinis and sip them by the beautiful pool area. The heated pool has the perfect temperature and was always kept very clean.

If you have an opportunity to rent this unit for your vacation, do not hesitate. You will enjoy all aspects of this wonderful home! We look forward to returning sometime in the near future!

Gorgeous Compound & Gracious Hosts

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay with Scott and Rod, but this time in the Garden View unit. The unit is clean, roomy and very well appointed. The pool, the grounds, and the atmosphere are superb. We couldn't have asked for better accommodations and more gracious hosts. The whole compound is like a private & tranquil high-end luxury resort. And Scott & Rod were indeed gracious, unobtrusive, and friendly hosts. MRL is certainly a place I would highly recommend to anyone who wishes some private, yet friendly, luxurious surroundings.

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 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.

Owner's Response: Thanks, both of you were great guests and really looking forward to your extended stay next winter with us again. You are both very early guests and a welcome to the house. Hope we can connect with you in Ogunquit this summer. We should have some more remodeling and surprises ready for you next winter!
