A little history about the Ocean Manor: DID YOU KNOW?????

The Ocean Manor was the first hi-rise hotel on Ft. Lauderdale's famous Galt Ocean Mile. Some of you old timers might remember some of yesteryears famous people who frequented the hotel like Jackie Gleason, Frankie Fontaine, Robert Conrad, and Eric Clapton. And by the way, Johnnie Carson owned the penthouse and frequently entertained Frank Sinatra and the 'Rat Pack.' In recent years , sport celebrities like Dennis Rodman and Michael Irvin have been seen at the Ocean Manor. Ocean Manor is still the most famous hotel with its rich and very long history.

Make the historic Ocean Manor your vacation destination.

You just never know who you might meet here at the famous, and newly renovated, Ocean Manor.

I saw Dennis Rodman at the Resort about one month ago.

About Ellen Flax

I made this studio my home for many years and still use it when it's not rented.

I have three children and am grandmother to eight. Two of my children live in New York and one in Colorado. I attended Bayside HS in Queens, Queensborough in Bayside and Queens College-CUNY and graduated in 1974 after a leave of absence to have my first child. I worked at Queens College in the early 1990s in the Center for Labor and Urban Programs Research Analysis. (CLUPRA.) I dabbled in writing and proof-read different written media for many years and worked in various law offices throughout the years. I came to Florida in 1996 and have lived in Broward County since then.

Ellen Flax purchased this studio in 2006

Why Ellen Flax chose Downtown

I was looking for a place that was on the beach, had a pool, food shopping within walking distance, and wonderful local amenities within walking distance also. I wanted a place that I would be able to live in comfortably. The locale is great and the inside has been up-graded and redefined to be user friendly and very comfortable.

You will find all the comforts of home while staying at my place, only you will be on the beach with great ocean views from your own 8th floor private balcony and be able to partake in any special events the hotel has to offer!!

What makes this studio unique

The apartment is a one-of-a-kind find. There is none other like this unit in the entire hotel. The studio sports a full size, fully equipped kitchen with filtered ice/water, unlike any other studio or hotel room in the building. Private HI-Speed WIFI internet access included free, as is Netflix on my 42" Smart WIFI TV. There is a 15" regular digital cable TV by the granite eating bar in the kitchen. My bathroom has a 6' Jacuzzi style tub with lights,. You won't find this anywhere else in a studio or larger unit in this building. The bathroom has a heat fan, exhaust fan and extra lighting. The king size bed has a NASA memory foam mattress by TempurPedic for an unbelievably comfortable and therapeutic sleep.

The décor in the apartment is very unique, from the color on the walls and ceiling tiles, to the unusual granite colors in the kitchen, to the many amenities in the studio, to the sheer comfort and cleanliness it affords.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you Ellen for your great place. It was very relaxing and comfortable. We really appreciate the place and location. We had a great vacation at this condo. Owners are very friendly and welcoming. We felt at home on day one. The beach is beautiful and all amenities are within walking distance.

We highly recommend this place.

Wonderful place !

  • 4 of 5

We spent 2 weeks at Ellen's place and condo. Exceptional Galt mile, at Ft. Lauderdale, everything at utmost level.

Ellen was very kind and ready to resolve any thing, any time.

The people at the condo very nice. The restaurant Casa Calabria is a must, delicious italian food.

With my wife Andrea enjoyed every moment, over the beach or at the pool. The studio has all that you need , with very nice sunsets and nights.

We already knew Miami but Ft Lauderdale is superb.

Car recommended.

To resume , very happy vacations !

The condo we had was just perfect. Recent kitchen update. It is small but perfect for the two of us. We enjoyed the patio, pool, and beach. The soaker tub was very nice. The owner checked on us and made sure all was good.
