About Darlene Souto

I AM AN ACTIVE REAL ESTATE AGENT, LOVING THE HOLLYWOOD BEACH AREA. Having grown up in Miami, as did my Father and his Father. Hollywood Beach was always our childhood paradise. Warm memories, and good family times. Morning walks, flip flops, sunsets, sun, fun and gentle waves, sand castles, no car needed - unwind, good time. Great time BUY on the BEACH!

Darlene Souto purchased this condo in 2004

Why Darlene Souto chose Hollywood Lakes

Unique, character, charming with Water Views, opening up the windows each morning - and seeing the water - the view, the boats cruising by - is relaxing and beautiful. Great Vibe! Being on the water in this building is the only way to go....

What makes this condo unique

Boat docks - 24 feet, that's what South Florida is about to me.....Boating, sand and sea and the sunsets too. The view.. the view, the view.

Sunsets Included!

Exactly what we needed 💖

  • 5 of 5

Darlene left notes in all needed places. It’s super clean, everything smelled great and the ambience was really nice. She provided us with all the necessities and when the cold front came through, she even offered to bring more blankets if necessary. This spot is a perfect, comfy and cozy getaway. Easy drive to Ft. Lauderdale and Miami plus the beach is literally across the street!

Very nice place!

  • 4 of 5

I recently stayed in this condo for a week. The place was clean, pleasant, and right on the water. The owner, (Darlene), was extremely nice and accommodating. The neighbors were nice as well. The only reason I gave it four stars instead of five was because the a/c broke right before we got there. The owner let us know right away and even offered to refund all of our money. She got two portable A/C units and a couple of fans, which made the unit bearable. She also made sure we had access to a grill so that we would not make the unit hotter by cooking. She even tried to get the unit fixed, to no avail, on three seperate occasions. She gave us half of our money back, and continuously asked if we needed anything. Overall, the experience was wonderful, the room was great, and the neighbors and owner were awesome! I am definitely using this unit again in the future.

Stayed in one of the back second floor units on the inter-coastal waterway. Sunsets were great, and it was fun to watch the boat traffic. The unit was very clean and well furnished, and the location really worked for me - short drive to work. Darlene was very nice to deal with. I was there for 12 nights.

As a male living alone, it would have been nice to have a TV cable package that included what I consider to be basic channels - ESPN, TBS, USA, etc. Watching a few local channels and ION-TV got old in a hurry. Internet access was fine. Parking is tight at Hollywood Beach, but the small lot on-site works well for the tenants.

Beautiful intercostal views and easy beach acess

  • 5 of 5

I am from the Broward area and my Boyfriend and I stayed at this condo for Memorial Day Weekend and it was fantastic. From every window you can see the intercostal and watch boats pass by all day and night. The dock has several tables and seats where you can relax and talk to the neighbors who are all very friendly and welcoming. You literally cross the street A1A and you are at the beach. The condo itself was very clean and has cute style. Towels, linens, kitchen supplies, beach chairs, extra toiletries, everything was there. The parking is really tight but luckily the lot was never full so it wasn't an issue for us as we were able to pull in and back out no problem. We plan on coming back to stay in the future, thank you, Darlene!

What a great little find. Right near all the action!

  • 5 of 5

A cute little condo in a small building with friendly people. Super clean, with fun eclectic furnishings. Has beach towels, chairs, and just about everything you need. The views out over the intercostal waterway are fun to watch all the boats passing. It's a 3 or 4 minute walk across A1A to the beach and busy broadwalk. I'd go back again, and again.
