Quaint and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Great location - 2 blocks from Duval St. Quaint courtyard area with pool. Very relaxing. Even though the pool and courtyard is just beyond the sidewalk on Southard you feel like you are miles away. Its quiet and surrounded by natural areas with palm trees and shrubs. Great place to relax. The condo is perfect for a small family - 2 bedrooms both with king beds! Kitchen, dining and seating area are just the right size. The only downside is the one bathroom when getting ready to go out for the evening. There are many mirrors in the place so it was easy to get ready outside of the bathroom. Loved this place and will definitely return. The owner promptly responds to emails!!

Excellent Location!

  • 4 of 5

This upstairs 2 bedroom carriage house condo was very spacious that we shared with another couple. The pool in the front is warm & clean. I don't think you can get much closer to downtown than this.

Our third stay! We love this place - comfortable, awesome location, and great management!

  • 5 of 5

Our family just enjoyed our third stay during the past four years in the Caribbean Suite. We love the place! The location is awesome - just a couple of blocks from Duval Street but nice and quiet on the property. We've met and keep seeing some of the same couples over the years who spend the same 4-6 weeks there at the Hollinsed House. We've visited late Jan/early Feb when our teenagers are off from school and we've enjoyed nice warmer weather and have enjoyed the heated pool every day of each of our stays. We also love sitting out on the covered porch. The other guests renting there are very friendly and welcoming. Be sure to ask them for recommendations on places to eat since the places on Duval are very touristy and not always the best. Some guests referred us to Mangia Mangia just a couple of blocks down Southard and it was really good. Also Mr. Z's a block away has awesome cheesesteaks! I wrote a review after our first stay a few years ago with more detail (see review from Sandy K below for more details I won't add here.) Since our last stay, we were pleased to see that the owners had upgraded the TV as we suggested. It is still not a big screen but has a much better picture than the previous old tube TV which is nice if you are trying to watch a game like my boys do. It also looked like the apartment had gotten a fresh coat of paint recently and a new sofa bed. Lois the property manager was great. She was extremely responsive from beginning to end. I booked over six months in advance and asked if she would let me know if the night or two before our dates opened up. Lois remembered and was proactive and let me know before our final payment was due that those dates did not open up. One last thing, a couple of people mentioned parking, we never had a problem securing parking but maybe it is the time of year we visit. We can't wait to come back!
