I'm a semi retired businessman who lived and worked in Manhattan for 25 years. I moved to Fort Lauderdale about 3 years ago because I love the warm weather and beaches and easier way of life. I have a 2 bedroom, 2 bath house in a great quiet family neighborhood very close to the beach and shopping areas. Bedrooms and baths are on opposite sides of the house and there is a large salt water heated pool in my quiet private backyard. Completely surrounded by 8' fence.

From $49.00 a night! **SEE OTHER ACCOUNT TO PURCHASE OTHER ROOM OPTIONS*** Room 2: The 'London Room' has a 40" flat screen TV, wonderful view of the pool, plenty of storage in the closet, a queen Temperpedic bed. Much larger and more comfortable. The room has a London, England theme. From $59.00 per night. Note: Rooms 1 and 2 share a full bathroom. Both rooms have been COMPLETELY remodeled. Better than staying in a brand new hotel with the comforts of home! Guest AccessGuests will have access to the entire house, laundry room and pool. Pool is HEATED for your enjoyment. We usually keep it at a comfortable 85-88 degrees. **Note: The pool will be out of service February 2017 for cleaning and some major upgrades** Interaction with GuestsI am a single gay male renting out rooms in our house to short term travelers It doesn't matter to me if you are gay or straight. I am friendly, enjoy meeting new people, and showing them around the Fort Lauderdale area. The NeighborhoodI am in an area known as South Middle River, which borders Wilton Manor (the gay area). As such, many gay people live in this area. I am a short 3 minute drive to Wilton Manors (or you can use our bikes for a lovely ride), 2 miles from the beach and 1 mile to downtown. Getting AroundPlenty of parking as home is on a corner lot. It is on a one-way street, so your GPS may take you to the front of the home, while you will have to go around the block to park on the side of our house on the one way street. For specifics, email us. The home is about 15 minutes from the airport and seaport. Other Things to NoteI am SO PROUD that between the two rooms, I have had nearly 300+ positive reviews. My goal is to provide a superior place to stay at an affordable price - a mission I think we have accomplished.

The SpaceThe house has two bedrooms and one bathroom, a living room, fully equipped kitchen, dining room and a laundry room. The highlight is by far the beautiful outdoor space with a large pool, trees and lots of comfortable patio furniture. We value the planet and the house is equipped with solar panels to help with electricity consumption and light bulbs are all LED or CFL. Looking for a bigger place? Check my other listing: https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/4373883 Guest AccessGuests enjoy private access to the house including completely private backyard with pool. A few cabinets are locked. This is mostly to keep extra linens and a few of the host's belongings. There is a studio attached to the house but it is completely independent from the main house and occupants don't have access to the backyard or the rest of the house. Interaction with GuestsI live and work in South Florida so I can be at the property whenever it's necessary. I can also answer all your questions. Se habla español. Je parle français. Eu falo um pouquinho de português The NeighborhoodThe house sits on a beautiful, very quiet block. It's 6 blocks from the center of Wilton Manors where all the major bars and restaurants are. Wilton Manors (also called the Island City), is nestled right in the middle of Fort Lauderdale. The fact that it's completely surrounded by canals gives it its island status but most importantly limits the points of entry in and out of the City reducing traffic, making it ideal for vacation. The neighborhood is beautiful with beautifully landscaped homes. The beach is less than four miles away. Downtown Fort Lauderdale is only 2.5 miles away. Federal Hwy is 2 miles aways with a lot of shopping and dining options. South Beach is 30 miles away and if you can avoid rush hour you can be there in 30 minutes (you will, you are on vacation). Getting AroundThere's free parking at the house. Guests can also walk to Wilton Drive and other local restaurants. Public transportation is also available less than a block away. Cab service is great in the area. Other Things to NoteKitchen is fully equipped including Keurig coffee maker.

The SpaceWelcome to our home and the beautiful city of Fort Lauderdale! Located just over 1 mile from the beach directly in the center of town, our location is ideal for anyone interested in touring the city, whether you do so by foot, car, or bicycle. We will gladly offer you our 2 bicycles for you to use for free as a way to go about the city. Fort Lauderdale is a great city for bicycling and we are very centrally located, being only a 5-10 minute bike ride to the beach and a 10-15 minute bike ride to downtown and Las Olas Blvd. HOUSE: Our house sits in the safe, cozy neighborhood of Lake Ridge in Fort Lauderdale, within walking distance of a pool, a classic 1950's movie theater, 24/7 drug store, multiple grocery stores, banks, restaurants, bars, a French bakery, the Galleria Mall, post office, water taxi stop, and even a Hustler. Pretty much everything. You will sleep on a queen size bed in your own private room and you will have your own private bathroom. The entire house is super clean and modern and has all updated appliances. We are both laid back, down-to-earth, and quite well-travelled (40 countries and counting), so we understand a traveler's needs and are here for you whenever you need us. AMENITIES: The house has everything you may need, including: -Two bicycles with locks. -Free soap and shampoo as well as a hairdryer. We will also provide you with freshly cleaned towels, linens, and wash cloths. -Plenty of free parking if you have a car -Washer and dryer -Cable and free wireless internet (AT&T U-verse) -Personalized maps and info on everywhere to go in Fort Lauderdale/Miami. I have lived here 24 years and know the city extremely well. -For those from another country, I have an adapter/converter for your electrical appliances. -If you are driving and don't want to get lost, I can provide you with a Garmin GPS -Should you need to check your email, print boarding passes, or book your next night of accommodation, you can use our computer. RULES TO NOTE: -We do have a very nice kitchen, but you may only use it for drinks (water, beer, wine, coffee, tea, etc.) and not for food or hanging out in. We are surrounded by cafes, bakeries, and restaurants, and we seek guests who wish to explore our city's culture just as we do when we travel. -Check-in is anytime after 2pm. We are flexible though, so should you want to arrive earlier, please let us know before booking so we can help accommodate you. Thank you. SUMMARY: We consider ourselves very friendly and generous people who are cultured and laid back. Having been to 40 countries, we are used to interacting with all sorts of people and truly enjoy meeting people from other countries. We know how it feels to be a traveler and we understand what a traveler needs, so you can be assured that we will take good care of you and take care of all your needs. At this point, all we can do is welcome you to Fort Lauderdale. Guest AccessIt is a small house, and since we work from home during the day and are often gone in the evening, we prefer that you spend your time seeing and experiencing the city, just as we do when we travel. If you plan to sit on the couch to read a book or take your time in the morning with having a coffee and surfing the internet while sitting in the kitchen or outside on the patio, then our place is not for you, as you can do that anywhere else in the city and have a more enjoyable time doing so. Interaction with GuestsI'm available 24/7 to answer any question you might have or cater to any needs. So, I'm surely available when you need me, but will keep my distance to respect your space and privacy. The NeighborhoodOur neighborhood is in the heart of Fort Lauderdale and has a very residential feel to it with quaint houses, almost all entirely built in the early 1950s. Being just a 10-15 minute bike ride to the beach, a 15 minute bike ride to downtown and Las Olas, and surrounded by every possible type of store, restaurant, or activity you would ever need or want, it makes for a great location and neighborhood. It is very safe, clean, and desirable to live in, evidenced in the median sale price of a home ($300,000+). I still consider it a middle class neighborhood, but it's surely affluent as well. Getting AroundSouth Florida is extremely vast and the public transportation, that of which exists, is notoriously poor. I highly recommend that you rent a car at the airport for about $25/day if you wish to tour outside of the Fort Lauderdale city center. Our location is at the city center midpoint, so bicycling is a good way, if not the best way, to get around should you only wish to tour the city center. Uber is another good option as the taxis here cost twice as much and have a really bad reputation. Other Things to NoteNOTE: Besides for beverages, we don't allow the use of the kitchen for food. Feel free to use any glassware for any beer, wine, water, coffee, etc. and feel free to keep such beverages in the fridge. We have never utilized a kitchen in our 2+ years of travel when you add it all up, as it defeats the purpose of traveling, so go out and explore the culture in our city and ask me where to find the best deals, as I know them all. It will be cheaper and more rewarding to go out than to go to a grocery store, I promise.

Taxis, buses and rental bikes access the beach, but your toned thighs and furred calves can walk the four miles if not exhausted by all the dancing. No alligators threaten my neighborhood; only silver-haired foxes in BMWs prowl. Forget the 40 minute cruise to Miami unless you are stunning. Wagging one’s weenie at Haulover’s nude beach is optional. My nominal fee will get you an airport pick-up, the first of many you are likely to experience. Neither straights nor gays need fear me for I’m not a dirty old man, even if this is Fort Lauderdale.” Guest AccessYour room, the bathroom, the pool. Before arrival, I negotiate kitchen use for minor meal preparation, mostly microwaving. More than that depends on how considerate you are of me and my home. Cut me some slack and don't rifle my kitchen cabinets, turn on my TV or radio, or adjust the thermostat. You wouldn't believe what liberties some people take. As I am visually impaired, tell me if I missed a spot when cleaning and don't whine about it afterward. I rise early for work, but am very quiet. Ask your trick to put up with you until at least morning so you don't wake me in the middle of the night. Interaction with GuestsAsk if you need help, directions or suggestions. If you want to go it alone, fine. But be nice about it and not cold. As long as my guests don't disregard the house rules, I try to make it work for both of us. Whew, this would be a good time for The Serenity Prayer! The NeighborhoodFort Lauderdale offers five things to do: shop, go to the beach, golf, drink and seek sex. None of these things I do, but my home is very central to all the above, and safe. Getting AroundPark the rental right in front for free. Driving is convenient, but beware of drunks and old farts. Bus drivers sell day passes. Bicycle rental is available around town. Taxis are a dime a dozen. Guys with great legs can always hoof it. Other Things to NoteA picture is worth a thousand words. Take one of yourself. You can’t possibly look worse than me. Hosts takes all the risk and good reviews are reassuring. Staying with a host in your home town to get one if you don't have any will make it easier for you in the future.

The SpaceImagine yourself lying on a raft in the pool, parrots squawking overhead, cold drink on the side of the pool. Imagine eggs Benedict every morning for breakfast-- or omelettes, or gourmet waffles, or pancakes or flavored French toast-- all made to order and served with freshly chopped fruits and maybe (if the tree is producing when you're here) freshly squeezed orange juice from oranges you picked that morning! Coffee served just outside your bedroom when you awaken. Maybe a poolside massage? Or maybe a day of shopping on high-end Las Olas Boulevard? Or a day trip to the unique ecosystem of the Everglades? Or a night of Cuban vibe in Miami? Or a drive to Key West over the seven-mile bridge to relax a la Jimmy Buffet in Margaritaville? Or a cruise over to the Bahamas for a day (or night) of gambling and authentic jerk chicken? Or all of the above! Stay at the luxurious resort-like setting of Walrick of South Florida and feel your stress melt away in the tropical sun. Turn off your cellphone and iPad and take time for yourself away from the pings and noise of your everyday work week. Relax before or after your cruise. Take a long weekend that feels like a month. No need for fancy clothes in south Florida-- T's and shorts suffice year-round (and that way you can just do a carry on and save the luggage fee for pampering in a day spa). Prepare your own dinner in our gourmet indoor kitchen, or grill outside on the family-size barbeque or Big Green Egg-- think fresh seafood or stone crabs or farm raised beef. If you're more of a beach bum, raid the cache of towels, lotions, chairs, umbrellas, cabana, sheets, coolers and bags and race to the ocean to feel the golden sand between your toes at the Fort Lauderdale beach or to nearby nudist Haulover Beach. Prefer to read? Curl up on the couch and chairs under the 50-foot awning or set up a zero-gravity lounge chair below a palm tree. But be careful that your Kindle doesn't fall into the pool when you nod off for that one-hour cat nap! Both guestrooms feature queen-size beds, en suite European-style bathrooms with aromatherapy soaps and shampoo, walk in closets, powerful overhead fans and chests of drawers. And there's a retro kitchenette just outside your room where coffee and tea are delivered every morning and with an apartment-size refrigerator, microwave, sink and toaster oven. This renovated home has a definite Arts and Crafts flair, with luxurious accommodations for guests and a private, tropical outdoor space featuring a large, heated pool with lush plantings and covered seating and dining areas, plus a patio table and chairs shaded by a large market umbrella and an umbrella over the pool to protect you from the sun as you relax on a float. There are two separate guest bedrooms in this house. This listing is for one of those bedrooms, at the front of the house looking out onto the street. The bed in this room is a new, comfortable pull-down Murphy queen size bed. Please look for the other listing (shown as BR 1) if you need a second bedroom (identical in size to this bedroom, for 1-2 people). This bedroom does not have an in-room television set; there is a set located in the office area and there are two TVs outdoors. **Please be sure that you have completed a profile when you contact me.

Many guests have had dinner with us or gone out to bars or to restaurants with us. We are fine for guests to have complete privacy and not interact at all. Walter is a former language teacher and is willing to help guests with language if they wish that kind of tutoring-- usually over breakfast The NeighborhoodWilton Manors is the hub of the gay community of southeast Florida and has the highest per capita gay population in the USA. The house is located just a short distance from the "the Drive" with many shops, bars and restaurants, all within walking distance from each other. Miami and West Palm Beach are both 40 minutes away; if you fly into those airports you can take the Tri-Rail to Lauderdale and come to the house from there. Orlando is three hours away; the Everglades are 45 minutes away. The Fort Lauderdale airport is 20 minutes away. The beach is also 10-12 minutes away. Public transportation is two blocks away. There is a bike available for you to use, and 2 large public parks are within walking and biking distance. The neighborhood is very friendly and very gay. We all speak to one another on the street and socialize regularly at each other's homes. A car will be helpful while staying here but not absolutely necessary. Your hosts will be glad to arrange to take you to the beach or to the drive if they are able, but you will be responsible to make arrangements for your return. **Please be sure that you have completed a profile when you contact me. Getting AroundPublic busses run two blocks away. The owners are not very familiar with the bus system of Lauderdale/Broward County to be able to answer questions. The is a lot of parking at the house, either in the driveway or on the street.The Miami and Palm Beach airports are equidistant from Lauderdale and guests can get from those airports to Lauderdale by using the Tri-Rail. Directions to the house from the Lauderdale airport are included in information sent when one makes a reservation. It's a 15-20 minute drive to the Lauderdale airport. Other Things to NotePlease note that there are two bedrooms in this house, each listed and priced separately. **Please be sure that you have completed a profile when you contact me. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. I'm happy to share information about the area and about Wilton Manors. You might find cheaper flights into Miami or Palm Beach airports or another city in the USA and then you could take one of the economy airlines (like Jet Blue, Southwest, Spirit, Allegiant, for example) into FLL. For those guests who book more than 2 nights, I will waive the $25 cleaning fee. There are dogs and cats in this household. Rooms do not include a TV, but TVs are available inside and outside.
