A little history about the Ocean Manor: DID YOU KNOW?????

The Ocean Manor was the first hi-rise hotel on Ft. Lauderdale's famous Galt Ocean Mile. Some of you old timers might remember some of yesteryears famous people who frequented the hotel like Jackie Gleason, Frankie Fontaine, Robert Conrad, and Eric Clapton. And by the way, Johnnie Carson owned the penthouse and frequently entertained Frank Sinatra and the 'Rat Pack.' In recent years , sport celebrities like Dennis Rodman and Michael Irvin have been seen at the Ocean Manor. Ocean Manor is still the most famous hotel with its rich and very long history.

Make the historic Ocean Manor your vacation destination.

You just never know who you might meet here at the famous, and newly renovated, Ocean Manor.

I saw Dennis Rodman a few weeks ago at the Resort!!

About the Owner

I made this studio my home for many years and still use it when it's not rented.

I am 63 years-old, have three children and am grandmother to eight. Two of my children live in New York and one in Colorado. I attended Bayside HS in Queens, Queensborough in Bayside and Queens College-CUNY and graduated in 1974 after a leave of absence to have my first child. I worked at Queens College in the early 1990s in the Center for Labor and Urban Programs Research Analysis. (CLUPRA.) I dabbled in writing and proof-read different written media for many years and worked in various law offices throughout the years. I came to Florida in 1996 and have lived in Broward County since then.

Exactly as advertised, great location close to Lauderdale by the sea, with live music and great restaurants. Condo was very clean, had a well equipped kitchen, and the most comfortable bed. The beach is beautiful with a jet skiing, kayak rental next door. Awesome, would definitely recommend this property.

From the Owner

I was looking for a place that was on the beach, had a pool, food shopping within walking distance, and wonderful local amenities within walking distance. I also wanted a place that I would be able to live in comfortably. The locale is great and the inside has been up-graded and redefined to be user friendly and very comfortable. You will find all the comforts of home while staying at my place only you will be on the beach with great ocean views from your own 8th floor balcony and be able to partake in any special events the hotel has to offer!!

The apartment is a one-of-a-kind find. The studio has a full size, fully equipped kitchen with filtered ice, unlike any other studio or hotel room in the building. Private WIFI internet access is included free, as is free Netflix. My bathroom has a 6' jacuzzi style tub with lights, unlike any other in the building. The bathroom has a heat fan, exhaust fan and extra lighting. The king size bed has a NASA memory foam mattress by TempurPedic for an unbelievablecomfortable sleep. There is a 42' WIFI Smart TV, plus a 15' regular cable TV. The décor in the apartment is very unlike any other studio in the building from the color to the appointments to the comfort and the cleanliness.
