About the property

Pool, 3 Bedrooms/2 Bathrooms - Sleeps 10



This house is a dream, the pool is awesome and you can enjoy it in total privacy because the backyard is completely fenced. A barbecue gas grill is provided so you can enjoy with friends or family.

The house has been remodeled and features hardwood floors, top of the line kitchen cabinets and granite countertops and it has been professionally decorated and equipped with all the comforts of home. The location is superb, close to lots of fun places. Hollywood offers activities for all ages, charming cafes, great eating places at the ocean side, the Hard Rock Casino, racetracks, golf and great nightlife.

And if you are in the mood for a change of scenery, in 15 minutes you can be at South Beach or if you prefer, Las Olas in Fort Lauderdale, all of them offer the best nightlife in town.

If you are coming for relaxation, imagine starting your day drinking coffee or tea at the pool patio surrounded by serenity and bathed in sunshine. You can enjoy an early walk along the quaint sidewalks of Hollywood deco downtown. Then you can spend the morning relaxing at the beach just enjoying wonderful Florida sunshine.

The famous Hollywood Boardwalk, among the best in the country, is ideal for biking, roller skating or strolling along 6 miles of beautiful coastline. And if you need to go on-line periodically just take your laptop Hollywood Beach is a Wi-Fi area.

And it is with pride that I offer this villa to you. It is cute, homey and comfortable and the house was remodeled with a holiday spirit in mind, it for a romantic getaway or a family holiday

The pictures are very misleading.

  • 2 of 5

From the pictures, the property looks amazing. But upon entering, it was all a mirage. First and foremost, the check in email was extremely vague, not a whole lot of details given. We were given the access code, but no other instructions. So when we unlocked the door and the alarm started beeping, naturally we went to the door panel that doesn't work. We had no idea there was a touch screen panel on the entertainment center. So the alarm went off after 45 seconds, and we couldn't figure out how to disarm it. Our next step was to check the beds, which we found hair all over the sheets. The housekeeper came within an hour and changed everything, which was appreciated. But left a bad first impression initially. Then we realized 80% of the furniture, including beds were not in good condition. The small bedroom bed frame is broken, the kids bunk beds were very unsafe, we found 2 nails sticking out of the bottom bunk frame and one of our kids was cut on it. The small bedroom bathroom shower door was broken, so you had to leave the door slightly open, because the handrail pops off when you try and open the door. Most of the patio lawn chairs are broken, the fridge was very small, and as soon as we put condiments in the door, the handle snapped off and all of our condiments spilled on the floor. There were just multiple things wrong. For the price charged for a week, we were very very disappointed. Overall we would not return for another stay. Hollywood beach is amazing, so we very much enjoyed that aspect. But we spent most of our time on the beach, as the ocean was so much warmer than the private pool. That was also very disappointing.

Owner's Response: First I would like to say to all readers that absolutely everything in this review is untrue. One can only speculate on the motivation of this guest to wirte it, but I am inclined to think I may get it deleted had I offered a partial refund. But I refuse to descend to that level, as I think reviews should serve as a truthful guide to fellow travelers. Therefore, I prefer to tell my truth and let the public reach their own conclusions. The obvious main point is that this house has mostly five-star review and many gracious comments in emails received from past guests. Examining in detail the issues of the review, the first is the alarm and one wonders how extensive need instructions have to be when all one need to do is punch four digits either on the panel or the tablet in the console. The panel is very visible right by the door. In regards to the furniture, it is quite new as the house has been in the market for only two years. The patio chairs were replaced last December. The refrigerator is more than adequate and has less than a year of use. A perfectly clean house was delivered to this Guest and yet she complained there was hair in the beds. It is to be noted all my quilts and bedsheets are white precisely to give the client a guarantee that the bedsheets are washed and sanitized. Nevertheless, rather than debating with the guest, I sent my housekeeper to change every single bedsheet within one hour. As usual, I did my best to have a happy guest, this simply proves that some people is impossible to please. Fortunately, 99.9 of my guests respond in a positive way to my decoration and housekeeping efforts. That is how I have made my business grow to 12 properties since 2016. I sincerely appreciate the business of my past guests that has allow me to grow, and most certainly I will continue to focus on providing the best possible accommodations.

Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5

The location and property was great. Clean, suitable to fit our needs. Most of all Maria was great and made the whole process easy. I would definitely recommend this property to others that won't mind staying off South Beach and okay with a 20 - 25 minute drive to South Beach.
