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!!
Beautiful view in personal, cozy studio for great value

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.

Beautiful view in personal, cozy studio for great value
My wife and I booked with Ellen and so glad we did! We found her wonderfully responsive to all our needs, with a very quick response to our initial booking and to our questions after. We give her the highest rating! Her studio is on the 8th floor of a charming, historic building with a gorgeous, southeast ocean view (not really ocean -front-) overlooking the swimming pool and beach, high enough so there’s no noise but pretty sights all the same. The listing pictures accurately capture the unit. There’s a quirk or two, like a condensation collection system that needs to be checked, but that’s life in an older building. The kitchen has everything you’ll need for cooking: stove, microwave, full fridge and dishwasher, and even some condiments and spices on the shelves. This is one of the few buildings -directly- on the beach at Ft Lauderdale; practically everything else is on the other side of the main beach street. We got our deposit back within a couple of days of the rental. We found this to be a great value for the money. You can book with confidence. Thank you, Ellen!
Relaxation, Food, Fun & Sun
We had an awesome vacation at Ellen's Condo! Ellen was a very thoughtful, welcoming hostess who greeted us upon arrival, provided a tour, and checked in on us throughout the stay to make sure everything was satisfactory without being intrusive. The condo was very modern, clean, and had everything we needed...including an ocean view!! The location was perfect...right on the pristine beach, with pool, and Tiki Bar/Restaurant...what more could anyone need on vacation?! It was also within walking distance of grocery store, liquor store, and several bars/restaurants. Our personal favorite was Aruba's! We had a blast and met a lot of friendly, fun staff and and guests...would highly recommend...you definitely will not be disappointed!
The studio is exactly as pictured and described, it is perfectly located right on the beach with all the amenities you would need. The view is great although the balcony is very small. The hotel itself has a great pool with a private beach area, you can rent an umbrella and two chairs for twenty dollars a day which I thought was very reasonable. The tiki bar had good food and drinks but was a little pricey I thought but there is a grocery store within walking distance if you prefer to cook your own meals. Italian restaurant on site looked good but I did not try it. A little far from downtown but you could easily Uber there with no problem. All in all you do not need a car because everything you need is right there. I would definitely stay at this property again.
Spring Stay - March 2016
My wife and I enjoyed our stay at this property. Directly on the ocean, with a great view of the pool area and beach, we found it relaxing and convenient. The unit had all the necessities and much more. The unit was very clean and welcoming. The owner personally met us, giving us a tour and spending time with us sharing aspects and amenities of the unit and the area. This unit is very close to all the needs you might have: Publix, Winn-Dixie, drug stores, restaurants, etc. The only negative of the trip is we came home to snow !!
We had a great time at Ellen's Condo. It is very clean and modern. She met us there and let us move in early, which worked out great because we had to be out of our other Condo at 11:00 am. We would definitely stay there again. Ron and Lori
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 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!!”

From the Owner
“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 soaking 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.”
