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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We are going through a renovation and it was important for us to be close to home and this place definitely was. It was a charming home and Quentin made us feel welcome. It is very close to the beach which is great. The only con I would say is that it was listed as a 2 bedroom but it really was a one and half because the bedroom was only separated by a French door. Otherwise Quentin was very accommodating and everything was as written, even a nice bottle of wine.

Charming House in great neigborhood

  • 4 of 5

This is our 2nd time staying at the front house. First stay, my wife and I were alone. And the house was perfect for us. This time my two 20 year old children made the trip with us. The second bedroom is not comfortable for two adults. The living room couch does turn to a single bed but for comfort we bought an air mattress. With that said the owners are great and the house is clean with a good size living room and dining room. For the price this is a great deal. Minutes from Hollywood beach in a safe neighborhood.

The house was what was advertised and is a really nice bargain.

Cozy and comfortable house near from the beach

  • 5 of 5

Is a house with every thing you can need to stay in Miami zone, near from the beach with many shops stores and supermarket in the local area and prepared for 5 or 6 people without problem. Is really simple to adapt quickly to the home. The services are all in order like central air conditioner, washer and dryer machine, microwave and stove and TV, DVD and internet connection fast and simply to connect it. Have alarm system. Cynthia and Quentin give you all the instructions in a guest guide and are in touch if you need them. Very recommendable. I will back!!!

Schönes charmantes Haus

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus hat uns sehr gut gefallen, mit viel Liebe hergerichtet und größer als man auf den Bildern sieht. Es ist alles für einen entspannten Aufenthalt vorhanden, sogar Strandstühle und Sonnenschirm. Sehr schöne Wohngegend, nicht weit zum Strand. Supermarkt erreicht man in nur 5 min.

Quentin hat uns bei einem Problem sehr schnell geholfen, vielen Dank. Sehr schön auch die Flasche Wein zur Begrüßung. Kaution wurde super schnell zurück gezahlt, top.

My wife and I spent 10 days at Cynthia and Quentin's Charm By The Lake, Beach & Downtown house. I gave the 5 star rating because the small home was exactly what I expected. The home is actually larger than what I expected after viewing photos on line. It is a well kept older home in a great, safe neighborhood minutes from Hollywood Beach. The price was very reasonable. You get a home with privacy in a great neighborhood for much less than a hotel room. We already booked the home again for 10 days in December. This time with our two college age kids.
