My friend and I were having a two-day getaway in Wilton Manors and stayed here. Our first impression was made by Mike, one of the owners, even before we got there. I had phoned to ask about parking and he was so friendly. He called my friend to confirm the room, and she told me how nice he seemed. He... More

Since Wilton Manors is the center of the gay social scene in South Florida, it makes sense that guest houses that cater to the community would crop up. A few years ago I stayed at one of the larger ones and didn’t love it. So I decided to give the Island Sands a look. Even though the reviews here are... More

My partner and I went on a cruise and booked a two night stay before sailing and another two night stay after the cruise. We were greeted at the office by the owners, Mike and Jim. We stayed in a lovely two bedroom villa at their second location in Wilton Manors. It was walking distance from all of the activity... More

Here for the second year in a row. This time for several months. Cannot say enough about the top notch accommodations and excellent service we are receiving. Our two bedroom town home is immaculate and the kitchen is very handy. Pool is clean and kept at a comfortable 85 degrees. Located in the midst of all the excitement...but quiet enough... More

I made a reservation online a few months before my arrival date. A short time after, I received a call from the owner, who stated that he saw I was traveling with another person and had requested two beds, and asked if I would like a unit with two bedrooms for the same price! Unfortunately, I never actually got to... More

Stayed here 18-22 October and couldn't have wished for a better place. Mike, Jim and the guys went out of their way to make sure we had a great stay. The rooms were extremely well furnished and it was just like a home from home. Breakfast in the room or by the pool was included and there was a great... More

The boys, Mike and Jim, are poster-perfect hosts at the ideal B&B. The Ft. Lauderdale area is swimming in various accommodations, most of them pretty tacky. Why settle for generic one-star disappointment, when the Island Sands Inn is just a few minutes (10 miles) north of the main downtown area of Ft. Lauderdale. Well it's impossible to be brief about...

This lovely Inn is perfectly located in the heart of Wilton Manors. Situated just steps off of Wilton Drive you can park your car and walk to all the bars and restaurants on the Drive. Once inside the gate, it's an oasis of calm and serenity with a gorgeous heated pool and well manicured garden. My room (#2) was tastefully... More

A cozy hotel in the heart of Wilton Manors. Mike and Jim, the owners, take care of you as if you were an old friend of them. The room, the breakfast, the pool... everything is very clean and the owners are extremely careful with every detail. You feel like home! Even better... you feel like you are in your best... More
