About Cynthia Brown

I am a retired professional from the high tech industry of Silicon Valley. My husband is a retired accountant. Motivated by our desire to share with others the natural beauty of the redwoods and creekside setting of our weekend getaway home in the Santa Cruz mountains of California, we started renting it out in early 2011 to vacationers. Since then, we discovered our true passion in creating aesthetically pleasing, practical and comfortable "home away from home" living spaces for others to enjoy. During our annual visits to my in-laws in southwest Florida, we fell in love with the vibrancy of the Fort Lauderdale/Miami area and the beautiful beaches. Subsequently, we established other rental homes in Hollywood.

Cynthia Brown purchased this house in 2014

Why Cynthia Brown chose Hollywood

Used to visit family in Southwest Florida and on several trips made it out to the Fort Lauderdale/Miami area as a tourist. Loved that Hollywood is conveniently located in between the two cities for easy day trips and its downtown has lots of character.

What makes this house unique

Fell in love with its lovely, historic palm tree lined street and the Mediterranean Revival architecture of the home.

Great location, comfy apartment

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is perfect for a couple. A quiet getaway, nicely decorated and equipped with everything you might need. Close to grocery store and restair ants and also not far from the beach. There is a small covered patio with a grill which is a relaxing place to enjoy tea or coffee in the morning and a barbecue at night. We would definitely stay again next time we are in Florida.

quaint little cottage

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful little cottage that was perfect for my husband and I to stay in while visiting our son. We were able to cook the fresh fish he caught and had sufficient cooking pots and pans! The hosts were very accomadating and street parking was free! Will most definitely be coming back! Thanks!

I had a great stay here- it was perfect for what I needed. I loved having a full kitchen so I could so a little cooking and sitting on the porch in the evening was wonderful. Check in was easy-- all the information was included in an email a few days before we arrived. Downtown Hollywood is very quaint- lots of little stores and restaurants and a great park with a fountain. I highly recommend staying here! :)

Comfy Cottage for an amazing price!!

  • 5 of 5

Location is key. Nice quiet neighborhood that is close to downtown and the beach and the Hollywood Trolley. Owners were easy to reach and very helpful. It was very easy to get around without a car. Will be a little more difficult after July when Uber stops operating in Broward County.

Home Feeling in the Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This place was an excellent choice! It has a great location - easy access to Hollywood beaches, downtown night life, and many eating places in the surrounding areas. Everything you could possibly ask for in the cottage is there, including an outdoor water display on a covered patio and BBQ grill for entertaining, if you are bored with the beaches. The place is extremely well maintained and the owners are always available if anything comes up.

GREAT place / GREAT location !!!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice cottage! Clean and well-maintained. Quiet neighborhood, close to everything - grocery, pharmacy, restaurants and more. The pictures are the real deal, what you see is what you get, no bad surprise. Having a car is great, but it is not mandatory. Easy access to A1A, US1, 95, 75. We had a great time. Can't wait to go back - we would certainly not hesitate to go back and at the same cottage. The owners were very nice and made us feel at home.
