Hollywood Lakes house description

My house is a comfortable 3 bedroom 2 bath home just a mile from the beautiful Hollywood Beach Broadwalk, less than half a mile from West Lake Park, and 2 miles from the nightlife of downtown Hollywood. My home has a huge pool surrounded by lush tropical landscaping.

The house is equipped with WiFi. The living room has an older style TV, basic cable, and a blu-ray player. There are several board games and a wide variety of reading material. The house is not a good fit for families looking to stay in the lap of luxury and be entertained by state-of-the-art electronics. It is a warm and inviting home where families and friends can come together, relax, and create wonderful memories.

The master bedroom has a king size bed, an en suite bath, and a private entrance from the pool area. The second bedroom has a full size bed, and the third bedroom has a queen size bed. The library nook has a futon that sleeps two. There is a second bathroom with a tub and shower.

The beautiful kitchen is has everything you need to whip up a quick snack or a 5 course gourmet meal. Dishes, silverware, glassware, stemware, pots, pans, cooking utensils, and small appliances are all provided in this well equipped kitchen.

There is a washer and dryer in the garage

There is one TV with a blu-ray for playing dvds and streaming Netflix. There is no cable television available.

In addition, the house comes with two beach cruisers and a tandem that you may use for local exploring.

Hollywood Beach is centrally located between Ft. Lauderdale Beach and Miami Beach -- 15 minute drive to both.

I am a Ft Lauderdale native, and I am very proud of my hometown. I am an expert on everything awesome South Florida has to offer, and will be pleased to help you plan a fabulous vacation.

PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION: My home is only 4 blocks from the main bus route. The #1 bus will bring you directly to downtown Ft Lauderdale and the Ft Lauderdale airport (only a 10 minute ride.) It will also bring you south to Aventura Mall in Miami (only a 10 or 15 minute ride.) The Aventura Mall is a main Miami hub for transferring on to a downtown, midtown, or South Beach bus.

The water taxi is the most enjoyable (but not the fastest) way of getting from my house to Ft Lauderdale and Miami. The water taxi makes several stops at various points of interest, and the captain is also a very knowledgeable tour guide. As you make your way to your destination, you will view multi-million dollar homes and yachts.

Getting to and from the Miami airport can be tricky depending on the time of day because of the train schedules. You will have to take a train and a bus. My home is approximately 2 miles east of the Tri-Rail station. This trip will be approximately 1hr and 45 minutes.

Would you like to take a day trip to the Bahamas? The first ferry service between the US mainland and the Bahamas is now operating daily (except Wednesdays) from Port Everglades Terminal 1 in Ft Lauderdale at 10 am, and from Freeport Harbour Terminal 1 in Grand Bahama at 7:30 pm. The 463-passenger express ferry makes the 76-mile crossing in 2.5 hours. A same-day, R/T costs $142 economy or $173 first class. If a traveler stays overnight, a RT is $193 econ./$223 first. These prices include $18 Bahamas departure tax and a $12.50 operational charge each way. In comparison, on the same route, Bahamasair charges about $250 for a same-day RT ticket, including taxes and fees. Passport required.

              My home is just a mile from the beautiful Hollywood Beach Broadwalk, less than half a mile from West Lake Park with kayaking, jogging, tennis, and basketball, and 2 miles from the nightlife of downtown Hollywood. There is a grocery store, drug store, dry cleaners, and dozens of restaurants and bars minutes from the house. Hollywood Beach is centrally located between Ft. Lauderdale Beach and Miami Beach -- 15 minute drive to both.
