About Ellen Flax

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

I 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.

Ellen Flax purchased this studio in 2006

Why Ellen Flax chose Fort Lauderdale

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 also. I 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 private balcony and be able to partake in any special events the hotel has to offer!!

What makes this studio unique

The apartment is a one-of-a-kind find. There is none other like this unit in the entire hotel. The studio sports a full size, fully equipped kitchen with filtered ice/water, unlike any other studio or hotel room in the building. Private HI-Speed WIFI internet access included free, as is Netflix on my 42" Smart WIFI TV. There is a 15" regular digital cable TV by the granite eating bar in the kitchen. My bathroom has a 6' Jacuzzi style tub with lights,. You won't find this anywhere else in a studio or larger unit in this 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 unbelievably comfortable and therapeutic sleep.

The décor in the apartment is very unique, from the color on the walls and ceiling tiles, to the unusual granite colors in the kitchen, to the many amenities in the studio, to the sheer comfort and cleanliness it affords.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you Ellen for your great place. It was very relaxing and comfortable. We really appreciate the place and location. We had a great vacation at this condo. Owners are very friendly and welcoming. We felt at home on day one. The beach is beautiful and all amenities are within walking distance.

We highly recommend this place.

Amazing Renovated Studio

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Ocean Manor before (3-4 times) and love the location. This, however, was our first stay in Ellen's gorgeously renovated studio, #808. I fell in love with it the moment I walked into the room. The owners spared no expense in the decorations, and built-ins. Everywhere I looked beauty met my eye...great full sized kitchen, fully equipped; beautiful marble counters and a bar area...a nook to sit and dry my hair and do my makeup (or use it as a desk!)....king sized Murphy bed...everything was just so well thought out. Ocean Manor itself is a condo/hotel mix....pool right on the beach and the only tiki bar on the beach. Galt Mile has everything you need: grocery store, CVS, McDonalds...all within 5 minutes walk. Lauderdale-by-the-sea is a 15 minute walk and offers shopping and dining. Ocean manor has a new Italian restaurant....with a real "from Italy" chef....we ate there several times; it was that good. All in all, I can't recommend this condo and location enough. We are definitely going back. And we were there 4 weeks....Ellen and her husband were very responsive to every question or need.

Roomy, updated studio condo!

  • 4 of 5

Nice updated roomy condo with lots of extras! Modern decor with plenty of lighting. Temperpedic mattress was great. Nice jacuzzi tub! Ellen greeted us, showed us around and left us a bottle of wine! Beautiful beach and walking distance to places. Had nice ocean view, but you couldn't sit on balcony because of dirty pigeons!

Tiki Bar was okay. But too pushy with drinks ! Couldn't relax and enjoy a glass of wine!

Owner's Response: I am so glad that my guests had a wonderful time at my place. It was a real pleasure meeting them as I try to meet all of my guests. As for the pigeons, this is the first time anyone has mentioned pigeons in the many years I have been renting my condo on the beach. My condo is on the eighth floor and birds do fly overhead and will sometimes alight on the railing around the balcony. There are not many pigeons in the area but I take steps to help the pigeons refrain from trying to come to my balcony. I use what is known as "Kritter Ridder"which is a non-toxic spray that pigeons do not like.and in no way will harm them. Nature is nature and I cannot stop a pigeon from flying over my place..

Can't beat the location

  • 4 of 5

Great location of this condo. In a hotel right on the nice beach. Small balcony, but big enough for us to sit on stools and enjoy our coffee or afternoon wine. Fun to watch the surf and the multiple cruise ships leaving Miami in the distance.

Condo had all we needed. Comfortable. As all have said, the Tiki bar is fun and the food was fine. The Italian restaurant in the hotel is excellent. And we live close to (and often visit) a town known for its Italian community and food. So that's high praise. The hotel is dated (no business center; no exercise room) so you have to overlook some of that. But the condo itself is in great shape.

Ellen met us at the valet parking in front of the hotel ($10/night, a bargain) and showed us around the place. She was very nice and checked in once later via text just to see how things were going and whether we needed anything.

Easy walk to the grocery or liquor store. Several other restaurants close by. Go. Enjoy the beach.

Great get-away to Lauderdale!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at Ellen's place before so we knew what we were getting. Ellen is there if you need her (by text also) and since we've been there before we didn't need a tour but she answered questions quickly via text. What we love is the nice place (that doesn't break the bank) pool, tikki bar with great food (drinks are a bit high...but good) and the Ocean right there a few yards from the beach. You have Shopping Center across the street with a Grocery store, liquor store and several restaurants within walking distance. Great bang for the buck! We'll be back...
