DESCRIPTION OF THE COTTAGE
The Cottage is comparable to a four to five star hotel room in this area, at a fraction of the cost. Your elegant guest home-away-from-home has its own private entrance through a secret, landscaped garden walk. The door to your cottage has its own security code. This door is off a beautiful, private patio with double chaise lounge. high-top table for outside dining, a seasonally operated hot tub and grants access (or not, if you prefer) to the shared-with-your hosts sparkling new, salt-water heated swimming pool (clothing optional), gas grill, outside dining area all enclosed with a privacy fence and tropical landscaping. A double-doored gate separates the Cottage from the pool area. You may choose to leave it open or close it for complete privacy.

The comfortable living area comes complete with 40" flat screen TV that features all premium channels (HBO, Cinemax, STARZ, Showtime, etc.) plus free WIFI. Also, you'll find a comfortable, full-size sofa, a gorgeous upholstered chair for reading, an antique trunk (for a coffee table), a huge chest of drawers (for your clothing), books and book shelves for your reading pleasure, oriental carpets throughout and a charging station for your i-phone or Android.

Off the living room is galley styled kitchen with mini-fridge, toaster, microwave oven, Kuerig & regular coffee maker, sink, a cozy glass-topped breakfast table with two stools and a full washer/dryer. The separate bedroom boasts a queen-size, sleigh bed with new, firm mattress, two night stands, plus a large armoire to hang your clothes.

The entire cottage is done with taste, interesting antiques and furnishings and signed original artwork and posters. But it is not stuffy. It is comfortable, warm, cozy.

It also comes with these amenities: Tommy Bahama beach chairs & umbrella, two bikes, a welcome basket, continental breakfast on the weekdays, all linens & bath towels, plus beach towels, bath soaps & shampoo, plus all the kitchen fundamentals. Plus we offer many other amenities -- like massage table, iron, etc.

PARKING -- The cottage includes one FREE, off-street parking space.

TAXES -- VRBO collects and pays directly the Florida State Sales Tax (6%) and the local Broward County Tourist Development tax (6%.) Legally, both must be collected and paid. The rate shown, includes both taxes.

INTERACTION WITH YOUR HOSTS -- WE LOVE HOSTING PEOPLE!!!! Your hosts are three, exceptionally friendly men, originally from New York (upstate and Manhattan), Washington, D.C. and Lancaster, PA. All three of us like to have fun, go out, and – most importantly – host guests. We welcome EVERYONE.

Harv, now retired, worked in mergers and acquisitions in NYC and in retirement held several positions running non-profits and created Lancaster's only visual and performing arts center: The Ware Center. Out-going & knows how to be an exceptional host.

His partner, Bill, still works as a WIFI specialist for an internationally known printing company. Bill lived in D.C. for seven years before moving to Lancaster, PA. Bill loves to fish, plays tennis, pool, baseball, golf and poker.

Michael, the third member of the household, is also retired. He formerly worked alongside a former White House Chef as a caterer and had his own very successful catering and special event business and a hugely popular restaurant and bar. He originally hailed from upstate New York, lived in New York City and most recently Lancaster, PA. Excellent cook, good conversationalist, tends to the gardens daily.

"Over-the-top hospitality" is our thing. We will bend over backwards to make sure your stay with us in Wilton Manors and Ft. Lauderdale is a memorable one. Don't hesitate to ask us for recommendations on where to eat, what to see, and which bars are hot and for whom. We also will respect your privacy, if you prefer that. The important thing is: you get what you want. It is your visit -- our goal is to make it special."

THE NEIGHBORHOOD
We live in beautiful West Wilton Manors. It is a lively, upscale residential neighborhood -- only a few blocks from all the action on the famous Wilton Drive and an easy 10 minute drive to the beaches. The streets often have people walking their dogs, jogging or biking. There are hundreds of things to do and see, gay and straight.

Mikel Park -- which recently underwent a $1.6 million renovation and re-opened just this summer -- anchors the neighborhood and you are free to use it during your stay. It is a few steps from our home. The beautifully lighted and landscaped park features estate fencing, outside workout stations, a running/walking path, a sand-volley ball court and a pavilion for musical performances. The park is locked at dusk. There is also a police sub-station in the park and is kept lit all night.

We are located five miles from all the Ft. Lauderdale beaches, including Sebastian (the gay) Beach and Lauderdale-by-the-Sea (straight/family friendly), and less than five minutes from the bars/restaurants of Wilton Drive. And a short drive from the shops of Las Olas and Haulover Beach (the nude beach). 15 minutes from the Ft. Lauderdale airport. About thirty minutes (depending on traffic) from South Beach/Miami.

We are a two minute drive from Publix (a grocery store), Dunkin' Donuts, 24-hour 7-11, liquor stores, Home Depot & Lowes, Walmart Drug Store and many other retail stores, restaurants & bars.

We will be happy to recommend bars, gyms, restaurants, site-seeing spots, shopping areas -- depending on your preferences. Let us know what you want to do ahead of time and we'll prepare a customized list of suggested places to go and try. Suggestion: Check out Groupon.com for local deals on restaurants, massage services, attractions, theatre, etc. Also, upon your acceptance of your reservation, we will send you a specially-created-for-The-Cottage-Guests- only, 30+page manual that not only describes the house rules, but also places to go and see, recommended restaurants, location of nearest beaches and casinos, etc.

GETTING AROUND
Although we are only a block or two from public transportation and taxi cabs are fairly easy to reach and inexpensive to use, we strongly recommend you rent a car so you can easily visit the attractions on Wilton Drive (about seven blocks away), all the beaches, restaurants, upscale shopping on Las Olas, and the nearby bars. Florida car rentals are inexpensive and parking incredibly cheap. (We'll show you where & how to pay, depending on where you want to go.)

Given the nature of the city and its party-atmosphere, UBER is very popular and easy-to-use here. It will take you anywhere in the city (or drop you off anywhere in the City of Wilton Manors). UBER from the FLL airport is less than $20. A cab may be double that. If you plan on having a drink out, USE UBER. We can also offer you two new bikes, if you prefer to get around that way.

OTHER THINGS TO NOTE
- All the major airlines fly into Fort Lauderdale International Airport (FLL). We highly recommend SouthWest Air, as they have less add-on “surprises” (like paying for luggage), when you book. Other good rates can be found with all the majors, plus Silver, Frontier, Allegiant, JetBlue and WestJet. We do NOT recommend Spirit.

Although a little further and not nearly as accommodating as FLL, you may also want to check airfares into Miami (MIA) or Palm Beach International (PBI). Both are about forty minutes away.

Note: You can pre-send a package (with clothes, for example). We’ll hold the package for you until you arrive.

- We offer a continental breakfast each weekday morning of your stay, plus you’ll find a Welcome Basket on your arrival, full of snacks, some libations and tips on what to do and how to get around. Soft drinks and water are provided free throughout your stay.

- The cottage is attached to our home, though there is NO direct, inside access from the main house to the cottage. Your privacy is assured: there are no direct visual lines between the two buildings & sound does not carry between the cottage & the main house.

- The pool is surrounded by a high, cannot-see-over-it privacy fence. So you can consider the pool a clothing optional area. If you prefer to not sunbath nude, that's fine too. Since we only rent out this one space, you pretty much have these areas to yourself. They are shared with your hosts.
