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 Greater Fort Lauderdale

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 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.

Nice home, great location.

We really enjoyed this home. The pool gets afternoon sun. The restaurants and clubs are a short walk to The Drive. Would definitely rent again!!

Amasing Getaway In Fort Lauderdale

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed staying in this very well appointed two bedroom house. The area around the pool is very private and quite. Its a great space to have cocktails in the evening when the lights come on highlighting the tropical plants. You can walk to the bars and restaurants on Wilton Drive as well as the grocery, Starbucks and drugstores. Definitely would stay here again!

Look No Further!

  • 5 of 5

My guests and I had a delightful two week stay at this property last month. It’s an oasis indeed! The house is on a quiet street and the location is easily accessible to all the amenities in Wilton Manors. It is clean, well maintained and nicely furnished inside, with attention given to every detail. The backyard is beautifully landscaped and pool area very private. It’s just a short drive to the beach as well. Look no further for a comfortable and relaxing stay in the Lauderdale area! But act quickly - my better half and I have already submitted our application for permanent residency here at “Shady Pines.” :)

nice place for a family winter escape

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 2 weeks over christmas into the new year with a family of 4 with 2 girls (8 and 12). We liked the well furnished and equipped house and the little garden with the pool. Most of our activities took place outside of Wilton Manors so that we did not profit much from the walking distance to Starbucks or Rosie's, but we liked the central location not far from beaches, I95 and downtown Fort Lauderdale.

The owners have professionally organized the house and the services connected to it, so that the stay was a real pleasure with everything from gardecare and pool service to house and pool towels, linen, TV, WiFi and a complete kittchen with enough dishes and silverware. The size of the house is a good compromise with space to relax but not to much work to keep it nice and clean - we recommend taking "Shady Pines" into consideration for a few weeks stay in Fort Lauderdale if you do not look for direct water or beach access.

Overall, really like the place and enjoyed my stay. I gave it 3 because if some issues

  • 3 of 5

Really liked the place, we laid out. Beds are very comfortable. Loved the pool, it's very private. Close to everything. Only reason why I didn't give more stars is some minor issues with the Microwave and dishwasher. The rest of the appliances are new. Internet could be faster.

Solid Ft Lauderdale Area house

  • 5 of 5

So we were quite happy with our stay at this house, and would be happy to stay here again if we're back down in the area. However, I hope this review will give anyone looking to stay here a better idea of what to expect... Before I get into the nuts and bolts, here's what we were looking for. My buddy and I came down for a few days for the Jets - Dolphins game and the rest of our crew were staying in a hotel near Pompano Beach. Since it was Boat Show week, the rates for the hotels were astronomical, so we went searching for other options. Not being super familiar with the area, we weren't aware that Wilton Manors is a very gay community, but coming from NYC... so what?

The Good: The house was clean, and ready for us on time, plenty of towels and linens provided. Everything was exactly as described in the write up. Getting in and out was a breeze as there's a passcode on the front door, so there's no need for a hassle with exchanging keys. Dan and Erik were great as far as communicating with us. The pool is fantastic and we used it every day we were there. In the kitchen, there was a ton of stuff that wasn't listed that would have been great if we cooked, such as spices and condiments and all the stuff you use when you're at home. Washer / Dryer is a nice amenity if we'd stayed a bit longer, but we didn't use it. Wifi worked great and was fast. On check out, our flight was a 5pm flight and the owners were kind enough to grant us a late check out.

The Bad: Not much here. The handle on the microwave door was broken. Oh well... we let them know about it. The only big gripe we had was that on the TV, we tried to fire up SportsCenter, only to find out ESPN was blacked out. As were all the basic cable channels. All we could get were the Local channels and Spanish Channels. ¡Olé!

The Ugly: The Golden Girls theme. Good God. Bodega Votive Candles for each of them...portraits of them...keychain portraits hanging off every knob in the kitchen.. WTF?! Some of the furniture is a bit dated..

All in all it was a great experience, great location and the other guys stopped by on the way to the Jets game and were blown away by where we stayed. We would definitely reccomend the property.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the nice statements guys. There is cable, but you probably didn't have it turned on, or the soundbar was set to the wrong input channel. You should've asked us. Oh well. Every piece of furniture is brand new, as of April 2015. The style is called Mid-Century Modern, and it's in keeping with architecture of the house and the neighborhood. Yes, Mid-Century Modern is a reference to the 50's. You can watch Mad Men, or stop by a West Elm store if you want to see more of that style. And those Golden Girls votive candles are handmade, definitely not from a bodega. Hopefully since the cable wasn't working you at least got to watch the DVD box set of the first 8 seasons =) And Wilton Manors isn't just very gay. It's actually, technically The Gayest. It has the highest gay population of any city in the U.S., according to the most recent census.
