Best of all direct oceanfront Unit facing Ocean.We have traveled the US and Europe staying at many vacation rentals and unit equipped with items essential to living/or cooking in unit to include beach itens such as beach chair,cooler, and umbrella. Local owner that simply rents unit and enjoy our unit when not rented. When renting in this building questions to ask owners and tips 1. When are you available if an appliance breaks. 2. When did you replace your A/C(most over 20 years old) 3.Why no reviews? Because owners have the option to allow reviews or not. 4. Are you really the owner or a third party realtor. 5. How come your calendar is not updated? Because its a third party and not actually the listing in the picture.

Do Not Rent!!
I rented this unit for a getaway on the beach with my husband and four year old son. BIG MISTAKE!! Do not stay here, especially if you have a child or want to sleep at night! We were woken up repeatedly due to rowdy neighbors and people roaming the hallways at all hours of the night (the lock on the door was so flimsy and loose, I’m not convinced it would do a whole lot to keep intruders out). At one point, we called security due to an incident of domestic violence/sexual assault next door to us. This was scary and completely unsettling. It is alarming that this unit is described as having beach toys for children, as though it is a place appropriate for families...it is NOT! I have nothing against going on vacation and having a few cocktails, but seriously, this place is a drug infested slum! So gross!! The hallways smell of cigarettes, marijuana and mold. The elevators only work sporadically, right along with the WiFi (hard to even do a google search).
The unit itself did have AC that kept the place cool, but that’s about it. The bathroom smelled of urine (no matter how much I cleaned) and the floors were covered in dirt and crumbs. The extra linens (not totally convinced they were clean) were balled up in a nasty closet next to a disgusting old mop and broom. There were some extra towels, but these too were just thrown into the closet with beach chairs and cleaning supplies. There was no beach umbrella, paper towels, or even an extra roll of toilet paper, all of which were listed as ‘provided’.
The free parking was a bonus, however it was unnerving to roll up to an empty home with a for sale sign out front and bright orange code violation stickers plastered on the front door! Especially, when the owner described himself as being local. Yeah right!!
The owners should update their deceptive property description to say...’ABSOLUTE DUMP-Stay here to enjoy sleepless nights due to violent and unruly neighbors, second hand smoke (of all kinds), and listening to a constant loud humming/buzzing noise on the rooftop just outside the ocean view window!’
Good location, but fell short of expectations
Overall cleanliness a disappointment, mold & moth ball smell. Not enough bath towels. Hallway leading to unit subpar, dirty, elevators slow - when working. Dog pooh found in hall on 2 separate occasions. Bed & pillows uncomfortable. Resort was old but location convenient to beach & boardwalk. Large (old) pool area with dirty & moldy lounge chairs. Pool area closes at dusk (early, should be open later). Whole resort needs some TLC, which will take considerable financial resources and thus will never happen.
We enjoyed our time out of the unit the most, walking the boardwalk, sitting on the beach, dining at the many boardwalk restaurant options.
We’d consider vacationing in Hollywood Beach again, though would search other housing accommodations.
The worst rental ever
Our stay was from 01/23/2018- 02/01/2018.The place had mold on the air vent system louvers and no screen for the window so we couldn't use the air conditioner or open the window. There was a very strong moldy odor in the unit and overall the unit was not very clean. The toaster was broken and the microwave turning plate was missing. The toilet seat was an oval seat on a round toilet. The tv remotes did not work. George promised that he was planning on new paint and furniture in September 2017, but that obviously didn't occur. The main lobby had ceiling tiles missing from water damage exposing wiring and plumbing. The entire complex had the same moldy-mildew smell throughout. Some of the gym equipment was missing, rusted and in poor condition. When I called George he advised me he was at work and he would send a cleaning service. He then hung up on me. Many people we spoke with throughout our stay complained about the same thing. In fact, we spoke with a condo owner who said the association has allowed the complex to become in disrepair and he had heard they were considering bulldozing the resort. WARNING!!! DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY.
This room had all the comforts of home, not to mention a beautiful view of the ocean... the bed was quite comfortable.. there was plenty of room to move around in this efficiency apartment and plenty of space to cook and save yourself some money so you can do other fun things in Hollywood Beach Broadwalk. the pool and hot tub were very relaxing.
The room is just a few minutes walk to shops, restaurants, Margaritaville and the famous water taxi stops that bring you to Fort Lauderdale. #goodtimes
Rental of condo
It was very comfortable, George was very helpful when needed, he is the best.
Needs a big renovation
The only thing this property has going for it is the great location. Building is very run down and you can smell people smoking pot ever time we walked down the hall to our room. Would never stay here again.
Oceanfront studio. unit owner operated that lives walking distance to resort in case of any type of problem distance to resort.
