Eat, drink and enjoy – and then walk to your private home nestled in exclusive South Lake. When you get home take a stroll around beautiful palm tree-lined South Lake and million dollar homes. Barbeque in your backyard, relax with a glass of wine under the Tiki Hut or watch a movie on the giant 70” TV.

Nice, but needs some details attended to, and a bit overpriced

  • 4 of 5

The good:

- The location is superb. Super easy access to the beach/boardwalk. Quiet, safe neighborhood. Awesome.

- Owner/property manager were responsive and kind.

- Outdoor tiki hut is fantastic and a great place to relax.

- Beds and furniture were all comfortable.

- Kitchen is well-stocked with cookware, etc. We did purchase a filtered water pitcher to stay with the house.

Could use work:

- There are two thermostats in the house, which is not at all obvious (nor explained). The one in the kitchen is visible and we assumed that handled the whole house. The 2nd one is not obvious, and we finally discovered it on the 3rd night of our stay after having temperature issues.

- 3 of the 4 patio lights did not work. They were fixed during our stay.

- The rainfall showerhead in the east bathroom is non-functional.

- It was great to have a pack n play for our baby, but it is old and very stained.

- It was also great having the 4 bikes, but 2 of the bikes have flat tires that need new tubes, and one of the others has some serious chain/gear troubles that could use some attention.

Aside from the thermostat, these were all very minor issues. However, I think the house is a bit overpriced given some of the lack of attention to detail. Hence the 4 stars instead of 5. We would stay again if these are addressed and/or the price lowered a bit.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review for our house. I am glad you enjoyed the house, and we appreciate your kind comments. I am sorry you had a couple of inconveniences, and although the issues you raise are minor, I would like to respond for the sake of future guests. We try to make your stay as perfect as possible, and we pride ourselves on being accessible and providing first class service to our guests. That is why we retain Greg, a full time local property manager, who as you noted came by several times to address the light bulbs on the patio and the shower head, which had some hard water deposits blocking the spray holes. In both cases Greg remedied the situation within 2 hours of being notified. As to the thermostat, we do have 2 separate A/C units and zones so guests can control bedrooms separately. We have had guests tell us they enjoyed having the two zone system with the split bedroom layout and separate thermostats; no one has ever said they did not see the thermostat but we will point it out to future guests from now on as part of the welcome orientation to the house. Though the pack and play is not new, it is clean and serviceable, but since you found it unsuitable, we have replaced it with a brand new pack and play. The bicycles are our personal bicycles. We try keeping them in working order, and will fix flats and let guests use them, but we do not advertise them as being part of the house because we cannot ensure that they will be in proper working order for each guest. Thank you for bringing to our attention the issues you experienced, it will help us make future guests' stays better. And if you visit Hollywood again, please keep us in mind, we would love to have you as a guest again.

Great home for a family.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this home for a week at Christmas with our 4 adult children. We love to cook as a family and we sure weren`t disappointed with the kitchen. Very well equiped.

This place was exactly what we were told it was.

We were welcomed with a great basket filled with munchies, which we appreciated very much. The owner was very accessible and answered all our questions and more.

This property is in a beautiful area and very quiet. It`s also a short walk to the beach so you don`t have to worry about parking.

They even have beach chairs you can borrow.

This is a great place to spend a vacation.

Wonderful experience for all of us

  • 5 of 5

Is not only about the house's location, and by the way, Its location is one of the best. It is how well has been. The house was sparkling clean, and geared up for all of us to enjoy it to the max! Beautiful patio with Barbacue, bathrooms and kitchen recently updated, but up to the details of providing beach towels, chairs, and parasols. Louanne and her husband are by far the perfect hosts for anyone who comes there and they will make sure to make your stay as convenient and as delightful as possible.

Great place for a family visit

  • 5 of 5

We have sons on each coast and they wanted to go someplace warm for Thanksgiving week. AND..the Cowboys were playing nearby against Miami! So this was a perfect solution for us so that we could have privacy as well as a kitchen and gathering area. Very nicely decorated with comfortable beds. Kitchen was well-equipped. While some people may think the walk to the broadwalk and beach is's a 10 minute walk if the drawbridge isn't up. Great location to many restaurants (GiGi's was awesome) on the beach as well as in town. We would definitely stay here again. They had bikes and beach chairs available but we didn't use them this trip. And lots of towels for the beach and house use. Loved being able to grill outside and sit in the tiki hut.

Beach Haven

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed a very relaxing week in this beautiful and comfortably furnished home. It was so cool and clean to come back to after a day in the sun! We particularly enjoyed the tiki hut, whether it was for morning tea or while sipping a drink during a short afternoon rainfall. The location is a very convenient walk to the beach and also a short distance to some fabulous restaurants in downtown Hollywood. The owners were very hospitable, leaving a packet of helpful information about the home and general area. They were also very quick to respond to a minor repair which was needed. It is very clear that they take a lot of pride in the home and are determined that guests have a very positive experience during their stay.

Super casa de playa

  • 5 of 5

Estuvimos 9 dias en Hollywood Beach y la pasamos genial, fuimos 2 familias de 4 personas, eramos 4 adultos y 4 chicos. La distribucion de la casa nos permitio hacer de todo, desde desayunos y cenas en el tiki , hasta comodos almuerzos en el comedor con aire acondicionado. Los elementos de playa no falta nada, reposeras y sombrillas para todos. La caminata a la playa, son 500 metros aprox se hace bien con un carro para llevar casi todo. La ubicación es super tranquila y con calles llenas de palmeras y vegetacion. La cocina esta super equipada, lo mismo que el lavadero. Todos los cuartos tienen excelente tv, muy apreciado por los chicos.
