About Carolyn Angel Spence

Hello, My name is Carolyn Angel Spence and I'ld like to thank you in advance for considering my properties as your Vacation destination. Let me begin by letting you know that I have years of experience in the hospitality field as an Interior Decorator for some of South Floridas most renowned hotels... I specialize in high end wallcoverings for 5 Star Hotels and have installations in the Fountainbleu Hotel in Miami Beach, The Diplomat Hotel in Hollywood, The W Hotel in Fort Lauderdale and several Country Clubs and Resorts throughout Florida. I bring my design knowledge and experience of upscale amenities into my personally owned properties as it gives me great pleasure to provide an outstanding experience for my guests.

The responsibility of handling vacation properties does not end with a confirmed booking and getting paid but should continue throughout the stay by insuring that guests have all needs met and going the extra yard to assist in vacation planning. We offer transportation to and from both airports and ship ports. We ask questions prior to arrival to make sure that at the least... essentials are ready and waiting for our guests. We are currently expanding our portfolio and adding an additional three properties to our Vacation Rental By Owner listings. We choose our properties carefully keeping in mind... location location location. Feel free to tour our existing list of properties here on V.R.B.O. as we do not advertise elsewhere.

Feel free to contact us with any questions relating to Hollywood Florida, it will be our absolute pleasure assisting you whether you are one of our confirmed guests or not.

Happy Travels and may the sun shine on you!!

Why Carolyn Angel Spence chose Central Business District

Location.. location.. location.... view... view... view.... convenience... convenience... convenience.. ; )

What makes this condo unique

Recently upgraded, new Kitchen appliances, furnishings and motif... I am a huge fan of the 1960's clean edge era... inspired by the TV show Madmen... classy, timeless and comfortable. The accent wall shown in the livingroom is impossible to capture in one photo.. it is of one very small segment of the Eiffel Tower and the gorgeous ironwork... it is gorgeous! Blue skies in the background capture the blue sky you can not hide from through your wall to wall, ceiling to floor glass terrace.... take a closer look and of course request additional photos if you like! ; )

Guestbook comments from the owner

We travel to Florida every January to escape the cold. We were very fortunate to have been able to rent Angels condo. She was recommended to us from our best friends who rent one of her studios. We were able to get the one bedroom and were absolutely thrilled to have found what we consider the nicest condo we've ever rented.

The decor is fabulous.... spacious, bright and very comfortable.

We love the design of this condo and have decided to steal a few of Angels ideas to use in our own home here in Calgary.

We highly recommend renting any of Angels condos, we visited two of them while here and both are well maintained, well designed and a treat for anyone looking for a more homelike stay than a Hotel.

Excellent Condo!

  • 5 of 5

This place looked much better in person, which is saying a lot since it already looks awesome in the pictures. I stayed here for 6 weeks and loved the privacy, the views, and the luxury feel of the apartment. The owner is awesome and I would highly recommend. If I come back to the area, I'm staying here 100%

The Pics on posting do not match the Condo!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this condo from viewing the photos supplied. We were BLOWN AWAY when actually entering the condo... this place is AMAAAZING!! Carolyn is truly an Interior Designer. If I were able to load up the pictures of what it looks like now I would. I feel like I am in a luxury Hotel in France. It is sleek and sexy ( we are well beyond the middle-aged bracket ) We are so thankful that our friends suggested one of Carolyns apartments for our stay... they were absolutely correct. She is very thoughtful and more than accomodating. She has done more than we would ever expect of a host. My wife suffers from Arthritis and Carolyn has shopped for us on numerous occasions and never fails to see if we need anything. Her nickname is "Angel" and it is fitting! thank you so much for being such a thoughtful young lady Miss Carolyn! Frank and Ruth C.

Owner's Response: Frank, This is so sweet of you to take the time to post here. It warms my heart to read posts from special guests like you and Ruth. I thoroughly enjoyed meeting you both and hope that you two will be able to return in 2013. Please give Ruth a big hug and let her know she is missed by myself and Joshua. You were an absolute pleasure to host and I consider myself the lucky one to have such wonderful people complimenting me and my condo. Big hugs and lots of love!! Angel

Loving the space and the area!

  • 5 of 5

I am currently sitting in the condo as a guest for 2 weeks. I find it absolutely wonderful!! We are more than satisfied with our decision to stay in Hollywood. The area is bit like SOHO in NY with artsy cafes and a very nice mix of cultures. We've met very nice locals and have even been invited out on a sunset boatride... We highly recommend Hollywood as a vacation stay and truly love our condo!

Thank you Ms. Spence for such a lovely place!

Only the view was good!!!

  • 1 of 5

We spent the month of January 2011 here. The description on the VRBO site at that time was very inaccurate as it stated that there were modern, newer kitchen appliances. NOT!!!. We didn't even have a can opener and had to ask the owner for one. There is only one outlet in the kitchen other than what the refrigerator was plugged into. We had to unplug the microwave to use the coffee pot or the toaster oven. Yes, I said, toaster oven, not even a regular toaster. The bathrooms don't even have toilet paper holders, the plate on the electrical outlet by the sliding glass door was missing and the couch had a hole in the lining so you could see through the couch to the floor. The owner did fix the outlet and the coach, however the couches are very uncomfortable. The unit was not very clean, the glass coffee table was cloudy with film, the kitchen cupboards were dirty, and the bedspread had stains on it. The owner did do our laundry after we used the money she put on a laundry coin card and didn't want to put any more on it. The first two times were good but the last time we didn't have any sheets or towels and at 9:45PM had to call here to find out where our laundry was. She was at her bar and not very receptive to getting the laundry. After an hour she gave us some different sheets and towels and our laundry was given to us the next morning. Needless to say, this was not a pleasant month. I would not recommend this condo to anyone unless they enjoy looking over the beautiful lights of Miami in the evening and that's all. That was the only plus to this unit. The pool is only accessable by a service elevator and you have to have a key to get out to the pool and back into the building. I talked with one lady and she said she didn't have her key and was stranded for two hours at the pool until someone heard her yelling.

The area is OK but there is a lot of noise at night, with police sirens, ambulances, garbage trucks making it difficult to sleep at night with the patio doors open.

We would not recommend this if you want a relaxing place to stay!

Owner's Response: In the service industry it is unfortunate but expected to have guests who are unappreciative and impossible to please. This was my first experience with this type of guest and hopefully my last. This guest does not mention that she requested to check in a day earlier than her booking which I honored (at No charge). Her claims of my unit being dirty are totally false... My cleaning team spent the entire day on her unit alone to prepare it for her and her early arrival. It amazes me that she was so unhappy...because she even stayed an extra day at the end... (at No charge).. the outlets and toilet paper holders and hole in the couch comment are also incorrect. The damage caused to the couch was intentionally done by this guest and was repaired by a master upholsterer within 24 hours. I may be nice but I am not a fool. My posting does not claim to have "new" appliances... perhaps buying new appliances between guests is the expectation of this guest. This guest went through the apartment with a fine tooth comb to find anything and everything possible with the hopes of getting money refunded... anyone could see the motive in her complaints. My doing their laundry was not required by me... and again unappreciated. The remainder of her posting isn't even worth commenting on... Nothing was good enough or appreciated by this guest. Not only was she/he rude and condescending to me as their host... but to several people in the building... at the pool and in the lobby. We are happy they are gone and wish them well... I do however suggest that perhaps you book your next vacation in France at the palace and hopefully you will find that accommodating... I doubt it... but would hope so.

Wow!! Did NOT want to leave.... we will be back most definately!! Owner is truly an Angel!

  • 5 of 5

We were so pleased with this vacation stay that we extended our trip for an additional 10 days. The views were so beautiful. I must have taken 50 pictures of the different sunsets... Angel was more than any vacationing couple could ask for.. she went out of her way to provide the "little" things that you don't think about when vacationing at the Beach.. such as coolers, beach chairs and even Bicycles!!

The building is an older building but that worked out to our advantage.... newer buildings apparently are limited as to how much "window" is allowed. This condo is one HUGE window overlooking the pool (a bit small) and onward to the Beach and city skyline... we love it here and are considering buying here.

Thank you so much Angel for such a lovely vacation!

Love Sarah!
