There is a large TV in the living room (with a Roku player that contains Netflix, Pandora, etc) and a TV in the bigger bedroom with a DVD player. You can access Netflix directly from the main TV remote by pressing on the Netflix button.

Roku Player: player has Netflix,  Vudu, Pandora.  You can use Netflix  (free movies and TV shows via internet with no commercials) and Pandora (internet music)  for free.

To access not only Netflix but also other services like Pandora music player via the Roku player in the living room, turn the power on the TV first, then press the input button on the top left side of the TV remote.  Choose HDMI-1 for the Roku player. 

There are manuals inside the drawers under the TV in the living room if you need more information.
Note: Vudu is a paid service and if you decide to watch any movies there, I will be paying for it.  You can do so as long as you let me know and add the amount to your payment.  Netflix and Pandora are free, however.

This is an honor system and we hope you honor it also.


77-78 degrees in summer and 72 in winter are good temperature settings.  If you need more info, there is a manual in one of the kitchen drawers.


You will have enough towels (regular and beach towels) waiting for you.  Beds are made up with clean sheets.  Property manager will have the unit cleaned and towels/sheets washed after your check out, so don't worry about this.


You will find everything you need: shampoo, conditioner, soap, toilet paper, air freshener. You do not need to replace what you use in the bathroom. There are towels in the small closet by the entrance of the first bedroom.


There are plenty of beach towels in the closets. There is also a cooler and chair in the closets, so feel free to use them but please put them back in the same condition you found them. There are also two bed sheets that you will see in a hanging organizer in the main bedroom’s closet. They work nicely  for laying on the sand. 


The bedrooms are light by floor lamps and table lamps. Each room has a ceiling fan also with lights.


There is a Publix supermarket at Five Points Plaza‎, 2633 North Dixie Highway, Wilton Manors, FL 33334-3724
Just drive north on Wilton Drive until you see it on your left.

The building has only one washer and one dryer, located in one of the rooms outside by parking lot on NE 5th terrace.  Since there are several residents in the building, these washer and dryer are used a lot so they may not be available when you need them. There is a key for the laundry room in one of the kitchen drawers.  If you have a lot of laundry and want someone to wash it and fold it for you cheaply, there is a good one (The Laundry Lounge) at 1950 Wilton Drive. The attendant will take care of you and they usually have clothes neatly folded and ready in 3 hours.


The building is very quiet, and we like to keep it this way. Please no parties in the unit. Neighbors will call Nelson if there is loud noises coming from the apartment.


The sun gets through the windows in the morning.  You will see wood blinds plus shades that make the rooms dark so that you can sleep well.


Please be considerate to the cleaning person. Leave all dirty towels in baskets provided.  Tell Sandy is you broke anything or if you see any problems. Most sites take a few days before returning your deposit.  They will be notified if something is missing or broken. We are flexible and reasonable and expect people to be responsible. Please tell us about any problems you see by calling Sandy at 954-547-7372


You will find some brochures on what to do in Ft Lauderdale, Please feel free to take and use them. You can put them back where you found them before you check in, please.

I recommend taking the water taxi, going to the beach, eating in the different good restaurants, going to Las Olas Boulevard to walk, also going for a walk on the Dania beach boardwalk, driving down to South Beach –  Lincoln Road, driving down to the Florida Keys if you have time, etc. You will find more details in the travel brochures and some maps that you will find in the kitchen.
