We had the best time ever! Mike and Jim are absolutely the most charming and delightful hosts! With just 4 units I am hesitant to recommend this outstanding B&B fir fear it will always be booked! But that won't stop me! I felt like we were staying our rich uncles and we had just won the lottery! We will be back, many years go come! Shopping, restaurants, bars all within walking distance and the beach just 3 miles away! Loved it!

A friend and I recently stayed there and we couldn't have been more impressed with the service, room, and friendliness of the owners. They went above and beyond our expectations, this is exactly the type of personal service one seeks in a guesthouse. -Great location -Newer, well-kept & spacious rooms -Great pool and patio Most of all, the advice given by the owners as to when/where to go was excellent. Highly recommend!

great hospitality from mike from reservation to car ride to train depot
It was a pleasure meeting you both and hope to see you again in the near future. We hope you enjoyed your train ride back home. Next time we hope to have you as guest just a few days longer. PS: The neighborhood already has two more new restaurants (to add to the over a dozen of existing ones)on Wilton Drive with opening dates.

Beautiful room and very quiet. Incredibly clean and the decor was only top notch, from the comfort of the bed to the tile in the shower, everything was very tasteful. The owners went out of their way to make sure I was comfortable and had everything I needed. Thanks, guys! I'll be back. Brent A.

This was my 3rd time traveling to the area. Island Sands is definitely the best out there! Our expectations were exceeded from the moment that we arrived. The property is beautiful, clean, modern and comfortable. The room was also very spacious and perfect for my 2 friends and I. Mike is a great host and went above and beyond to ensure we had a great experience! The room and property include everything that you could want or need during your stay and tons of extra's. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!!!
Thank you! Thank you! We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay in our double queen suite with your friends. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us if you have any questions, request, etc. about a future stay or events taking place in Wilton Manors/Ft Lauderdale.

I wanted to get away for a nice relaxing couple of days from NYC and was not disappointed in choosing the Island Sands Inn. What you see on the web site and the reviews are true to form and even more, but the hospitality shown by Mike and Jim is superb. Having breakfast delivered by Mike with his bubbling and pleasant personality starts your day off with a positive energy. I enjoyed my stay and this will be my home away from home while in Ft. Lauderdale. You wouldn't be disappointed staying here. Best Wishes and continued success. Thanks again.
We would like to express our thanks for supporting us with the details you have shared regarding your stay. More importantly we are glad you had a great stay!! Hope to see you during your next trip to South Florida.

I recently booked a week there for a work trip and was so pleased from the minute I arrived! Mike and Jim are very welcoming -- they even let me check in earlier than usual since I had an early morning flight. Every bit of the property is beautiful -- all the rooms are tastefully decorated and the patio/pool area is picture perfect. It's also conveniently located, just steps from restaurants and bars, and I felt very safe in the area (being a single female traveler). That will be my #1 choice for accommodations when I go back to Fort Lauderdale!
Thank you for the great review. It means alot to us to make every guest(s) stay a memorable one. We look forward to seeing you again!!!! Please let us know if you have any request(s) prior to your next arrival. Thank you very Much!!

My friends, and I, drove up from Key Largo for a Girls night out, in Wilton Manors. Per a recommendation, we made reservations at Island Sands Inn. Upon arrival we were pleasantly surrprised to find a little spot of paradise! The rooms, pool (great for evening swim), and breakfast were perfect! Words can not describe what wonderful Host Mike & Jim were. HIGHLY suggest you check it out, or better yet, just make a reservation....you'll not be disappointed!
WOW!!!! We cant wait to have you all stay at Island Sands Inn again!!! Thanks for the kind words and details of your stay. Please let us know if there is anything we can do prior to your next visit to ensure you have another memorable stay!!! Thank you and Happy Holidays!

I spent a very long weekend here and I had the best time I have ever had at a B&B! Great service, clean, wonderful owners. I even extended my stay here. I would highly reccomend this place. Great location for local night life.

Look no further you have found the best place for your friend or romantic getaway. I am a male and I was taking a trip with a couple of my friends who are lesbians. I was looking for a nice gay owned resort or bed and breakfast for us to all stay in near Wilton Manor because we wanted to enjoy the nightlife together. What I soon found that even though many places said they were GLBT friendly that was not the case. Most would not allow my female friends to stay. Location: EVERYTHING Wilton Manor has to offer is around the corner from this place. Service: These proprietors are what anyone in the hospitality service strives to be. Two complimentary glasses of wine ready for me in my room! I had forgotten toothpaste and asked if they had an extra travel size. They were out of the travel size and to my surprise brought me a giant new tube of regular toothpaste! Rooms: Simply gorgeous. The full size refrigerator was stocked with sodas and juices. The alcove above the toilet was filled with BIG fluffy top quality towels. Beach towels near the front door for the pool. It is super clean and spotless. The bedroom area had stunning crown molding, wainscoting, and other architectural elements that showed someone cared when putting craftsmanship into this room. The crisp white linens were luxurious and the mattress so comfortable! Lots of different pillows to choose from just added to the luxury. Huge flat screen worked great for watching TV on the couch. We did not do much of that but it worked just fine. There were snacks available under the TV. (very small charge) Amenities: Great pool area!!!! (Bathing suit required) Clean and perfect temperature. Completely surrounded by luxurious tropical plantings with giant fan palms as focal point. This is a bed and breakfast and unlike most where you eat in a common room, you have your choice of pool side or in your suite. Just mark on a card what you would like the night before. Wonderful coffee!
