Overview

About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom (Sleeps 1-3 adults or 2 adults and 2 chldren)

Cozy and relaxing Waterfront vacation on one of South Florida's most beautiful Intracoastal Waterways. We are steps away to the legendary Hollywood Beach Broadwalk. Hollywood Beach is a classic South Florida beach town that’s enchanted visitors since the 1920s. Often compared to quaint European and funky California beach towns, the character of this inviting area is all Florida. Evening strollers, morning joggers, bicyclists and roller-bladers share the brick paved, beachfront thoroughfare with those enjoying the many cafes and bars along the way.

We have free wi-fi access. Google our address is 1908 North unit #9 Ocean Dr Hollywood Fl.

Unlike the high-rise resort hotels and condominiums that tower over the middle and southern parts of South Florida, we are extremely boutique in character -- meaning: it is cozy, quaint, one-of-a-kind gems. First floor accommodations, walk out your door and you can fish, or dine overlooking the Intracoastal Waterway while viewing a majestic sunset from our private deck.

This is a one bedroom unit and will only accommodate a maximum of two to three adults or two adults and two children. Our cozy couch will sleep two people. We are geared more for couples looking for that well deserved romantic vacation getaway.

Get here fast and take it slow. Enjoy your favorite frozen drink concoction, with our new Jimmy Buffett Margaritaville Frozen Concoction Machine. No Shoes, No Shirt, No Problem!

About Carl

We are both retired and have been married for 33 years. We have tried to make it as homey and cozy for our personal use, and yours. We had planned to make this our retirement home but bought a farm instead, and became Bee keepers . We now use the condo in the off season when it’s not rented..

Carl purchased this condo in 2002

Why Carl chose Hollywood

My wife and I grew up in Miami and we both LOVE the ocean. Ever since we’ve been married we have been looking for waterfront property by the ocean, from Key West to Fort Lauderdale . One night friends took us for dinner on the Boardwalk. We couldn’t believe it, dinner right on the Ocean. Neither of us had ever been to Hollywood Beach even throw we both grew up in Miami only 20 miles away There was no question, we found our home away from home.

We chose the Waterways because of the location, and the beauty of it's architecture. We are a short walk to all the events, and far enough away for peace and quit when you want get away to our private deck overlooking the Intercostals waterways.

What makes this condo unique

We love to get up early and watch the sun rise, then take a walk down the beach for breakfast at one of the many restaurants on the boardwalk.

My wife loves to go shopping at the nearby malls and then spend a few hours relaxing on the beach.

We are always sure to be home to watch the sunset from the deck with our favorite cocktail.

great place to stay

  • 4 of 5

I would recommend this place ,it was everything that I had read about it. My wife and I would go back. I would give it 5 stars but for the tight parking. If you have a compact car your OK but we had a full size ,so it was a bit tight.

A week in Hollywood Beach!

  • 4 of 5

Stayed at this property in March/April 2017 for a week. First of all, Carl the owner was great to work with. He was available to answer any questions via phone, and even initiated calls to make sure things were ok. I would definitely work with him again.

First of all, the property is in the ideal location for Hollywood Beach. You have the best of both worlds, the inter-coastal at your back door and the beach at your front door. The common area on the dock was a great way to meet the residents of the other units while enjoying an evening cocktail. Throughout the day I did feel like I was impeding on the full time resident's privacy, but they didn't seem to mind.

Across a very busy street, you will find the heart of the boardwalk. Lots of restaurants and bars to try but people watching is probably the most entertaining. You can rent bikes to explore the broadwalk. A great morning walk too!

Just up the street you can take the water taxi for a day full of sightseeing. it is worth it to do the entire route and then decide where you want to get off for a few hours. Margaritaville is where the stop is for the taxi, a great spot to unwind when you return.

As for the unit, I would have given it a 5* but couldn't simply because the kitchen was very small. Otherwise the very clean unit is well equipped with everything you need, a good size bedroom, a newer bathroom and air conditioning. The WIFI was a bit spotty, but it is an older building so to be expected. Beach chairs, coolers for the beach and a small, propane barbeque that was adequate to cook a meal for two people. The biggest plus - your own parking spot. When Carl tells you not to bring a large vehicle - he means it. Parking is at premium along the whole Hollywood Beach strip and expensive.

If you like to stay at the Four Seasons, this isn't the unit for you. But the rest of us who like to unwind, relax and have access to lots of activity within a budget, then check it out!

perfect location

  • 4 of 5

Spent a week at carls condo . Only 1 day in I knew all the great people there.Having coffee every morning on the dock was peaceful and beautiful. The broad walk was a stone throw away yet this location kept you in peace when you wanted it. I am looking forward to returning to waterways home away from home. Dave

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

Sitting on the deck overlooking the Intercoastal was beautiful. Manatees are constantly passing by right below our feet. It is a short walk to the famous Hollywood Boardwalk, but you have to cross a very busy street to get to the beach. Not a place for small children. The condo was clean and had almost everything we needed. Could use some pots for cooking, but other than that we enjoyed the condo very much. Hopefully we will stay again next year Carl.
