Not recommended.

During our stay, most of the time one or two (out of three) of the elevators were not woring. Very very very very very very noisy.

Quality of of furnishing not up to 4star rating (2 stars Max.). Excellent location

Recommended for the younger crowd only.

Perfect Honeymoon!!

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky enough to get this condo for our Honeymoon and loved everything about it. Very clean rooms, comfortable bed, great cool relief from the summer days spent on the the beach. The Beach! Being that it was right downstairs, not crowded at all and perfect white sand made this one of best benefits of the trip. The ocean offered great snorkeling and skin diving and was able to see many varities of fish - garfish, bonefish, skates, docile nurse sharks and many schoold of smaller fish. The Bamboo Tiki Bar is beachfront and right downstairs as well. Fantastic food and tropical drinks!!

So many great restaraunts and a grocery store are within walking distance. Nick's Italian Restaraunt was the best by far - amazing food, generous portions and affordable prices made this a standout place to eat. The condo offers a very nice kitchen which allowed us to cook in a couple nights for dinner and some breakfasts. The lenai right off the living room was a favorite place to eat for us where were able enjoy breakfasts and watching the beautiful sunset during dinner.

The couches were clean and comfortable and it was nice to kick back and watch the big screen TV at night after being in the Florida sun all day.

We would recommend this condo to everyone! We were fortunate to have been able to stay here for the week and look forward to going back with the family.

Wonderful condo!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in this lovely condo on the beach in May. We enjoyed our stay and we will recommend it to all our friends. The condo was clean and ready for our arrival. Having the kitchen was great! What a pleasure dealing with the owner.

Very comfortable stay...

  • 4 of 5

This condo was everything the pictures on this website showed. We are extremely clean people and we found the place spotless!! We stayed for 3 nights and we did not have to buy anything extra for the kitchen, etc. Even though the lanai was not on the beach it was still really nice to open the windows in the morning and sit there with our morning coffee. Locations was just about perfect. can easily walk to grocery store and few restaurants. The pier off in the distance on the beach looks far but it really was not bad of a walk. Went to a restaurant at the pier for breakfast....the one behind Aruba's and it was excellent. Souvenier shop across the street had a ton of wonderful

items...not all chachy type stuff. Took the owner's advice to eat at Nick's will not be disappointed....we SHOULD have eaten there every night. Went to La Dolce and ordered just the pasta was delicious, pricey and not much more than my fist.....went home and had leftover pizza. Explored Hollywood beach which is about 25 minutes south......they have a huge 2.5 mile boardwalk which was nice to walk down. We rented movies at the Redbox at Winnedixie down the street....only $1.27!! The DVD player in the condo does not accept Blu-ray. Took us a while to figure out how to use it. The TV remote has to be changed to TV then the input button. The Tiki Hut at the

beach was nice to sit at for a few drinks....the lobby in the condo has coupons for 2 for one drinks.

We took a tour on the Jungle was well worth the 3 hour trip....the beautiful homes on the water and the outstanding yatchs that we seen were unbelievable....the one stop to see some birds, monkey, alligator, etc. was really small and really not very impressive. We did notice a bus stop across the street from the condo that you could take to a variety of places. We drove instead. Only thing we did not care for is to constantly tip the valet parking guys......a few times we just asked for the keys and got our own car. All in all it really is worth the excellent price to rent this condo.

Great Properties

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I recently took two weeks in Fort Lauderdale. This “On The Beach” private condo in Ocean Manor was only open for one week, but the owner had another property, a resort/marina, that he offered. We spent one week at one and the other week at the other.

This 8 th floor condo was directly on the beach. The apartment itself was First Class, like new. The owner sent us tour documents that told us where everything was and it was all within a ten minute walk. This is quite a location, very self contained. We had a car but rarely used it. I would not get a car next time.

The beach was great and the Tiki Bar served great drinks and good food. The pool was refreshing. We walked to nearby restaurants and would highly recommend Nick’s, La Dolce Vita, and Greek Islands.

Do not miss a sunset. It is just like the photos.

The area at the corner of A1A and Commerical, a short walk north, was well worth the visit as well. The fishing pier there was awesome.

The Resort/Marina was equally great but a different ambiance altogether. It was more a social place.

We highly recommend this on the beach condo and will return there in the fall.

Owner's Response: I remember this couple well and thank them for their thoughtfull review of both properties, the Ocean Manor Privately owned condo, and Casa Del Sol. This apartment is relatively new to our offerings in Fort Lauderdale. It has been well received by our guests. It is "On The Beach" with a full one bedroom full kitchen apartment. Ed DeChant, Owner

Great Place, Everything you said and then some

  • 5 of 5

We certainly enjoyed our stay at your beautiful apartment. We went with some friends who stayed in an apartment facing the ocean. I think our view was better as at night the ocean is totally black and there are not many lights on the beach. The sunsets from your apartment were spectacular.

Thanks for the surprise bottle of wine. It was a touch of class.

Your apartment was very nicely done. it really is first class.

We found the building very nice and noticed some renovations underway. The TIKI bar was very nice and we had both a lunch and breakfast there.

Your tour documents were fantastic. They saved us so much time in finding out what to do. We ate at both Nick's and Greek Island. Great food. The Blue Jean Blues Jazz club was beyond good. Our stay was too short. We want to go back. Put us in your repeat client list.

Owner's Response: We have only had this apartment for 4 months and all our guests have echoed your words. For an on the beach vacation, Ocean Manor Private Condo owners can not be beat. The private owners have a very high ranking with guests. Ocean Manor is one of only 3 "ON THE BEACH" beachfront properties in Fort Lauderdale where one can rent vacation apartment accommodations. The rest are across the street from the beach. You are already on our mailing list. Thanks for taking the time to send in this review and thank you for the excellent marks. Edward DeChant, owner.
