About Jacqueline Simmons
As a cancer survivor, i enjoy the fresh comforts of this special property with my family and grand children. We came from the Caribbean in the mid 1970's and nothing makes us happier than to get away from Miami and stay at the beach cottage.
Jacqueline Simmons purchased this Cottage in 1995
Why Jacqueline Simmons chose Hollywood South Central Beach
Hollywood Beach is one of the TOP Ten beaches in USA. Many Americans now enjoy staying here as an alternative to Traveling abroad. The Canadians love this area in particular as it is quiet and mostly low density accommodations. Our Beach cottage is like being in a single family home and our Hurricane Impact windows seals out what little noise might come from the street. As a family with 14 Grand children, we are building a" foundation of Memories" for the children to pass on to the next generation. These memories were a part of our own happy childhood, when we were brought up, living in the Caribbean island of Jamaica.
What makes this Cottage unique
The location of the Cottage is just about the best place to be. Its is an original, old, "art deco" house that truly has been updated with sound proof impact doors and windows, granite open bar kitchen, and central air-conditioning. Each bedroom is en-suite and the private off the road parking is just outside the kitchen door. The Bar-B-Q area is just outside the kitchen door... And the pool is in the back. This is a small Condo community with only 40 units, and as there are resident Owners, this particular destination is constantly maintaining its uniqueness as well as its value.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Our family of four (two adults, and two small children) stayed in this cottage for one week over the Christmas holiday. I highly recommend it, and look forward to staying there again in the future. The owners were wonderfully clear in their communication. There was a designated parking space, and it is located only a few steps from the boardwalk and beach. The interior was clean, and the two beds were comfortable. The kitchen is updated, and everything worked! They provided beach towels, and had many helpful home necessities (soap and shampoo). It was so nice to walk to breakfast, walk to the beach, rent a cabana and chairs, and then walk back at the end of the day, hop in the pool, and then be “home”. The convenience was key for us. If you are looking for a relaxing beach vacation, this is the place to stay!
Hollywood beach gem!
Cozy 2 bedroom 2 bath cottage steps away from the famous Hollywood Broadwalk & beach with easy access to nearby pool, heated in winter. Open floor plan with fully equipped kitchen, large dining room and living room. Dedicated parking space; very important! Each bedroom has their own bath with shower. The owner provides all the essentials to enjoy a beach vacation...towels, chairs, cooler, etc. While we were reluctant to take a chance on renting via HomeAway and the internet, we're certainly very happy that we did. We'll be back!
Such a pleasure having you stay in the beach cottage, and so nice we got to meet you as well.!!
Thank you for leaving the cottage in such great shape.
You and your family are always welcome to visit anytime.
Happy holidays and hope its not as bad a winter as it seems it might just be awful!
Hugs and happiness for the holidays

Our BEST Florida vacation rental by far!
When we were surprisingly cancelled by our first "paid" reservation at the last minute, we found this property! What a lucky turn of events...SUPERIOR over the high-rise condo we initially reserved. The cottage was well cared for and very comfortable for 4. Excellent location, close to everything, most importantly the beach. The pool is saltwater which was a lovely surprise. The farmer's market on the weekend; also a welcoming benefit. Lots of great restaurants and shopping within walking distance. And the owners were extremely responsive and accommodating. We would certainly rent again.
We were so happy that we were available to help you continue your planned vacation....after the others cancelled your booking.
I know how happy you were and everything was concluded overnight!
I smile when you say the pool was salt water....it actually isn't..... but i know how much you and your family enjoyed the sea...so perhaps you were a bit “ocean water “ logged!....smile.
Big hugs and hooe to see you back again next year.
You were lovely guests and left our cottage in great shape....
Thank you so much.
Hugs to all,
Jackie and Joe
Perfect in every way!!
Four of us just spent ten days at the beach cottage. This was our first visit to Hollywood and we fell in Love with the cottage and the area. The location is perfect. Steps away from the Broadwalk, and the beach. The beach is one of the nicest beaches we have ever been to. Jackie, the owner, provides all the beach necessities you might need. Coolers, umbrellas, chairs. She even has sunscreen for you to use. The cottage is steps away from an organic famers market that is open every sunday. The produce and the fruit were amazing. We were able to walk everywhere for dining, entertainment, ice cream, etc.. There is also a very nice size pool for renters to use, if they wish to. The beach was beautiful so we spent our days there. The cottage was spotless and everything is provided from linens to paper products. We have been renting through VRBO for many years now, and I have to say that Jackie is the nicest owner I have ever dealt with. She is friendly, responds immediately to any question or concern you have, and goes out of her way to make sure you are enjoying yourself and the cottage. This experience was one of the best we have ever had renting. She is very honest, and accommodating. We will definitely rent again, and are looking forward to our next stay at the cottage by the sea!!! Thank You Jackie!!
Dear Anita and family
Thank you for your kind words and for taking the time to post a review.
We try our best to keep a clean and welcoming place for each and everyone of our guests.
I too, book vacations on line, and know that sometimes you don't quite get what you thought the accommodation might be.... which makes me somewhat anxious.
We are so happy you enjoyed your visit and we VERY sincerely hope to see you again in the future.
All the very best... and thanks again for your kind words.

Truely home from home!
Wow! Loved it, everything you could possibly want, from sit back and relax to beach holiday. Which is just metres away from the front door! Shops, bars, restaurants, celebrity homes a short ride away via car or water taxi. We would definitely recommend stopping in this cottage, and no doubt if we got to this area again it would be my number one choice of accommodation
Perfect location with every detail thought of.
We had a wonderful 6-week stay at the beach cottage. Jackie is the perfect hostess and has truly thought of every detail. This is the best equipped rental home I’ve seen. Quiet street and steps to the boardwalk and beach. This is it folks!
We are indeed very happy you came to our cottage to stay, and appreciate your kind words.
Our beach cottage is a very important part of our family life and we do our very best to keep it in the best condition possible.
Thank you for your kind words and hope you will return again and visit us again. Happy you are home safely, and enjoying moving back to your re- modeled Home.
Hugs to you both... happy Xmas and the coming new year
Jackie & Joe
