About Gabe D
I've lived in South Florida for 20 years. I have a Masters Degree and work in the Fort Lauderdale area for an IT firm. I love South Florida for its wonderful weather and beautiful palm trees.
Gabe D purchased this House in 2012
Why Gabe D chose Wilton Manors
The minute I saw this house I fell in love. The huge backyard and pool are the highlight of it. Nothing like swimming in the pool and hearing the birds singing in the trees and the squirrels running around. The house itself is very well laid out and it's super cute. Wilton Manors is a hidden jewel tucked in the middle of Fort Lauderdale. Dubbed the 'Island City' because it's completely surrounded by canals that form an island. The canals also limit the points where you can enter the city which reduces random traffic through it making it a quiet and safe town.
What makes this House unique
You get your very own, very private pool and hot tub. There's no sharing with anyone. The pool is very big for a house pool and it's heated. The backyard is very private and has beautiful trees.

Very nice private garden. Not the most clean place I’ve stayed in - looks better on the pictures. But overall okay and Gabe seemed to be very helpfull.
It was great hosting you guys. Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us a review. I am sorry that the experience was anything less than perfect. Perfection is hard to attain but that’s what we strive for with every visit. I will contact you to understand better. I am a local host and I personally clean or supervise every cleaning. If there is any area that we are not focusing on enough we would love to know. I really wished you would have brought it up while you were here and I would have made it right immediately. As for the pictures, in four years hosting guests we always hear that pictures don’t do the house justice. I would love to understand which pictures you are referring to. We would much rather under promise and over deliver. Our pictures are not even professional or staged; they are simple, honest pictures taken with a cellphone. Maybe I’m biased but I was just sitting in the backyard last night and I can’t rate it as anything less than breathtaking. In any case, I hope that you guys come back and we have a chance at a do over and address any of your concerns. Come back soon.
Great location. Gabriel was Awesome.
House and Garbriel's Service was phenomenal. 2 Thumbs UP
Thank you, Mansoor. It was a pleasure hosting you and your beautiful family.
Great pool and neighborhood.Good value.
Really enjoyed the pool and taking walks in the neighborhood. Quiet and private (keeping in mind we were there late in the season). Near good restaurants. Service fee and cleaning fee can drive price up a bit.
Barb & Peter from NY
My husband and I stayed for 3 weeks and as you can see from the picture we enjoyed the heated pool and also the Jacuzzi.
The house though it may be small was just enough for us and the home was ideally located near an abundance of restaurants and shops. Also close to beaches if you desire that. For us the pool was all we needed.
Our host Gabe was a delight and when we requested a few small items he replied and responded asap. Thanks Gabe, we loved staying there!
Have your slice and eat it too
Slice of paradise is a perfect name for this property. I fell in love the moment I stepped into the backyard. Everything was laid out beautifully. I spent most of my vacation in the backyard, but the layout of the whole house was quite functional. The beds were comfortable. The bathroom, kitchen, dining and living area were all efficient. There was enough space to keep a family of four happy, and not on top of each other. The owner was nice and helpful, and made sure we had what we needed. I will definitely stay here again.
A piece of sunny paradise
The backyard with pool and hot tub including a large green lawn was the best part of this house. All day you can find sun or shade in the backyard. It's a piece of tropical paradise. The beds are comfortable and the kitchen was ample. It's a small separate bathroom for both bedrooms, but updated and clean. The owner is very attentive and offered excellent activity ideas. You can't go wrong if you are looking to relax and lounge by the pool!!
It was a pleasure hosting you and your family. It's always so satisfying to hear how much guests enjoy the place. It's the ultimate reward for all the hard work. Thank you for taking great care of the house. Come back soon!
