Property description

Welcome to our tropical oasis style poolside cottage. This comfy studio/1 bedroom space has windows and doors with pool and garden views, white beam ceilings and a very beachy cottage feel.
The kitchen area has full size refrigerator and stove, dining table with 2 chairs and bar seating for 2.
Entertainment includes 42 inch flatscreen TV with full cable package including free music and movie channels, Sony sound system, and high speed wireless DSL.
Bedroom area has 2 queen size beds, and can sleep 4 people.
The cottage opens to the poolside patio, ideal for dining and sun, with gas grill, dining table and fire pit.. Oasis style heated pool is surrounded by tropical foliage and coconut palms, featuring fiber optic lighting which turns the pool purple to blue to green.
Also available: off-street private parking for 2 cars, laundry, 4 bicycles, beach toys, umbrellas, floaties and chairs.
Wake up to sunlight on the patio in the morning, relax, grill and dine in the evening.
Take the bikes - there are 4 for your use - for a spin through the neighborhood, the intracoastal waterway is just 2 blocks away; the beach is 10 blocks. Margaritaville, the new resort with surf simulator and live music is just a spin away.
Surrounded by parks and golf courses, the cottage is also less than one mile to Gulfstream Race Track, 1 mile to Diplomat spa and country club, 4 miles to Aventura Mall, 6 miles to Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. 6 miles to FLL airport and 19 miles to Miami airport.
Hollywood features a multi cultural experience with its wide variety of restaurants and live music. Enjoy dining, night life, gelato and shopping. Downtown Hollywood is 6 blocks.
Office needs such as printing and faxing available.
The cottage is adjacent to the main house. The laundry room joins the back cottage to the front house. Both are private and separate.
Pool area is adjacent to cottage and house front house. If guests want the area to themselves we encourage it! Simply request and it is yours.
I work for an airline and I travel for a living, so I am always sensitive to the needs of vacationers. If you'd like to make friends I welcome you and hope to add you to our return guest families. If you prefer privacy we honor that and provide plenty of space and solitude. Whatever your style, you'll find it here.
This home away from home is a favorite repeat for many of our yearly guests.
Please feel free to contact us if you need anything at all to make your stay in south Florida a fantastic one.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: I am an avid traveler, health nut and yoga fan. I strive to make this home an oasis for my fellow travelers, yogis and seekers of adventure.

Why the Owner Chose Central Business District, Hollywood, FL, USA:
Hollywood is quaint and cozy and unpretentious. The beach is still a little retro and maintains a sense of old Florida. The location is ideal, close enough to get to everything, yet in a quiet neighborhood with birds in the trees and the sound of palm fronds in the breeze. I find it good to have that sense of rejuvenation after some big adventures.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
People really love this place, I think because I put a lot of love into it, and because it really means a lot to me if my guests are happy. Thats what its all about.
