This 3/4 bedroom Penthouse. Please contact us for the rates based on dates and the size of your group. The huge kitchen with breakfast island will accomodate any family for any amount of time. The over 70' of floor to ceiling windows provides an outdoor feel through the entire unit. All bedrooms and both kitchens have magnificant view of the Altantic ocean and Ft Lauderdale Beach. Step out side onto the over 1000 sq foot private sundeck and you have your own private outdoor paradise. All furniture, paint, door handles, dimmers, appliances, towels, vanities, etc were replaced in Aug of 2012. 5 Zones of A/C will keep you cool and heat is available for that freak cold night in the winter. 20' polished marble tile throughout the unit, custom tile in the bathrooms, and recessed lighting throughout are the touches of quality you expect when paying for the best. The large bathroom (available in 1 bed suite or entire unit only) comes with 4 person tub and 2 person shower with 12 heads to blast away any stress that life brings. With over 8 sleeping beds/pull outs the unit can hold 13 people comfortably or 7 in the 2 bedroom lock out or 5 in the 1 bedroom lock out. All linens are of high quality as would be expected.

Flat screen TVs provide entertainment. This is truly an upgraded unit.
I own a few units in the building and purchased this unit to make it the most beutiful of all. I own Audio Cafe, an electronics integration company in NJ and always strive to ensure the experience I provide to others is exceptional.

You really need to see it to believe it. It is amazing. Largest sundeck on the beach. Huge rooms, awesome view, great amenities and detail. ITS ON THE BEACH!
Living like a super model would. Sunbath on sundeck or patio, soaking tub and two person shower.
This condo is beautifully appointed with ocean views. I tend to judge a place based on how good the beds are (it's not a good vacation if you can't sleep) and I loved the beds and linens here. And there are plenty of pillows to choose from! The Tiki bar between the pool and the beach is a fun place to hang out or watch a game on their many TVs and the food is very good.
Mike was just a phone call away if we needed anything and we really enjoyed our week here.
If you are looking for a spacious place with an unbelievable view this is the suite for you. The building is older than some surrounding, but Mike has invested in updating his prime condo. However, there is still some room for improvement. He informed me that the tired kitchen cabinets, poor to no closet space, and one of the three bathrooms will be addressed and updated. Additional and new outdoor furniture might need to be added to his list. The condo lacks a dining table inside. There are 5 barstools at the counter space, but I could see an issue with either young children, or older adults dining comfortably and safley. A dining table outside on the very spacious deck could be a nice addition and welcomed dining option for guests. The outdoor main sofa, has lost all support, and you and the cushions sink when sat upon. The building has a small gift shop, salon, and a restaurant. Tokyo Blue has great ocean views and contemporary decor. I highly recommend the Sea Bass Skewers, and both their green and Panang curry. There is also a Tiki bar beach side that is always lively, offers sports on multiple tv's (not all games are available), decent food, but surprisingly lots of smokers. They offer lounge chairs on the beach to rent for $5, and paddle boards, Kayaks and jet skis are also available. The location allows convenient walking distance for groceries, pharmacy, restaurants, good wine and coffee. Lauderdale by the Sea shops and restaurants also walkable, although the distance is about 1 1/2 miles. If you choose to drive, there is ample parking in lots, but street parking is hit or miss. There is also good fishing off the pier.
(One caution: due to the fact that the penthouse floor and units boast high ceilings and no carpet in the halls, sounds from neighbors to elevators in use, seem amplified.)
Mike was very accommodating and helpful with our stay. With the few improvements I suggested above, and Mike's updates to the condo, this will be a 5 STAR rental not to be missed.!
We had a wonderful time staying at Mike’s rooftop penthouse suite. You will soon discover that the place is well stocked and perfectly located on the east side of Galt Road, right on the beach. The 4 bedrooms are spacious and so is the living area…especially the massive roof top deck – with the best view imaginable. This building is historic and was built in the 1950s. The Ocean Manor is the first high rise on the beach and once served as the Florida home of Jonny Carson. In fact, Mike’s PH is the unit next door, and your large deck once served as the helicopter pad for Johnny.
We absolutely had a blast this past week. Any issues that came up, Mike was great to work with. He was very responsive and timely with his replies to our simple questions. The only recommendation for him would be to create an “owner’s manual” to help figure out things like the light switches, shower heads, etc. The kitchen is very well stocked with nearly every tool needed. The fridge is a large and clean side-by-side. The stove is electric. The microwave, coffee pot, washer and dryer, dishwasher, blenders, etc. all worked easily and reliably. The bedrooms were comfy, spacious and we all (6 of us) had our private bath.
He has surround sound throughout, a flat screen TV (Roku equipped with Netflix and a ton of movies, TV shows, etc.) in the living room and another one in every bedroom. Although our kids are in college we noticed that he has baby carriages in one of the closets along with beach toys, beach towels, etc. He’s thought of it all.
There is a little bit of renovation in progress (very minor stuff and was probably the reason for the only negative review he’s had) as he brings the unit from the 70’s into the modern era. No operational or comfy concerns, but just a heads up. The place was spotless when we arrived.
The pool downstairs was bathwater warm, large and had plenty of lounge chairs (free of charge). The hotel’s property is right on the beach where you’ll find plenty of room to layout and relax. Charges apply for the chair ($5) and umbrella ($10) which are standard for Florida. Of course, throwing a towel down is free.
Between the pool and the beach you’ll discover the only bar on the entire beach (because they don’t give liquor licenses anymore, so this one is special and grandfathered) – it's called The Tiki Bar. The food is absolutely delicious, a bit pricey, but delicious. It’s a local’s favorite too. We enjoyed getting to know
My family had a blast staying at the Ocean manor in Fort Lauderdale. We stay in a beautiful penthouse sweet. The owner Mike was very helpful. He even had a child seat I was able to use for my son. The view was beautiful, we had dinner on the deck a couple evenings.
There is also the tiki bar below who deliver food up to our room.. Also the blue Tokyo that had good sushi. And a great atmosphere. But for a older crowd.
The area had a lot of things to do, every day we had something plan.
Day one- we went the jungle queen boat sightseeing.
Day two- the museum Discovery and science.
Day three- we took our son to Funderdom(in door Play ground.
Day four- The bleach and the pool.
That only 4 of the 8 days we were there.
Not going mention disney world and shopping and dinning.
There are cvs, McDonald's banks and super market walking distance.
We have found a new vacation spot.. Quiet peaceful a true vacation area..
This place was PERFECT!! We decided to go to Ft. Lauderdale at the last minute, and Mike was very quick and helpful to get us booked. It was really nice to have a door code and not a key to the room. The inside was great. Just what we were looking for. Very clean, updated and comfortable! Even though we had rented a car, we could have walked to anything we needed. The location is great. The Tiki Bar was great too. We ate breakfast there everyday and spent lots of time at the bar. We hope to get to return to the area soon and would definitely hope to stay in this unit again!! Thanks Mike!!!
