About Dan and Erik

Erik and Dan live in NYC, but escape the winters up north in beautiful Wilton Manors. We are happy to share our mid-century inspired vacation home with you.

Dan and Erik purchased this house in 2015

Why Dan and Erik chose Wilton Manors

Walking distance to everything!! You don't even need a car here (although it's nice to have one).

And the yard and pool are very private- fully fenced in, peaceful and sunny. Great for sunning on the chaise lounges, swimming in the heated saltwater pool, cooking on the gas grill eating at the outdoor dining table, or reading a book in the shade on the outdoor sofa. You'll love the salt water pool so much more than the usual chlorine pools.

The house has 2 bedrooms, and a daybed in the office to sleep a 5th person.

Very well located place

  • 4 of 5

Nice and quiet place to stay for some days like we did. We enjoyed it. The house is 10 minutes walk from the center of Wilton Mannors. The swimming pool is not that big but sufficient to relax in warm water. You can rent it without any problem.

Mixed experience

  • 3 of 5

Some real pro's and cons to this holiday home


Good location, nice friendly neighbourhood filled with dog walkers

Walking distance to good bars and restaurants - we loved Rumours, Rosies and the Quality Diner

Lovely expensive, tasteful and classic interior furniture and beautiful pieces of art

Vera Wang towels and plenty of them

Damage deposit returned promptly

Golden Girls theme that some people seemed to comment on is actually very unintrusive

Nice showers (although could take a min or so to warm up)

We loved the American fridge :)

Anti allergy bedding a big plus for me

Well stocked kitchen


Train is very close and very loud. At least hourly, sometimes half hourly, it goes by horns blaring for a minute or sometimes more, woke us up several times each night, and I sleep with ear plugs in!

Dusty - skirting boards, drawers, cupboards had thick layers of dust on and I had to clean before I could put my clothes away or they would have got dirty. Dust in and around air conditioning vents. Owner did arrange a cleaner to drop in on our second day to resolve as was a big concern to me as I am severely allergic to dust.

Outdoor area in need of upkeep/maintenance - trees need trimming near BBQ area and cables and electrical box open to elements

The house was gloomy, perhaps due to the overhanging roof (designed to provide shade?) but overall impression indoors was gloominess, not helped by the light in my bedroom ceiling fan, nor one in the ceiling fan near the pool door not working

One of the blinds in my room was broken and didn't shut so was light very early in my room

TV channel selection was limited on the one night we stayed in

No kettle for us Brits who love our cups of tea but I think this is more of a general US thing

Our general impression was that when this house was first finished it was decorated with love and care but that over a few years it has needed some upkeep which possibly hasn't happened? The train was a big issue also, we both went home sleep deprived and ready to leave.

Best rental I've stayed in!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect rental home and had everything we needed and way more. The pool area is lovely and relaxing and the home is neat, clean, and wonderfully decorated. Very comfortable furniture. Grocery stores, coffee, restaurants all are in easy walking distance. We were lucky enough to be there during Wilton Manors pride and it was great! Very fun and queer friendly area. Would definitely come back to this house in the future!

Wonderful place / Great location / LOUD train every night

  • 3 of 5

Overall the place and the location were great. The owners were easy to correspond with. The pool was a great temperature. The house was tidy and well kept. The ONLY complaint....and maybe I didn't catch this in the description or other reviews.....was that a freight train rolls by just about every hour during the night and blasts its horn several times, every time. The main reason we don't stay at hotels is because we want peace and quiet while we're traveling for business. Had I known the train would be that close and that loud, I would've chosen a different location. I'm a light sleeper and it made it almost impossible for me to sleep at night. Other than that, the place itself is very accommodating.
