About Paul Hancock & Sandi Coleman

Paul Hancock & Sandi Coleman (married) were raised in the Midwest, Paul in Ohio and Sandi in South Dakota. They met in D.C. when both were Dept. of Justice lawyers. They moved to Hollywood in 1997, with Sandi becoming a federal Immigration Judge and Paul serving as a state Deputy Attorney General. Sandi now is an artist, skills that she used to restore and design the condo unit. They owned beach property in Delaware before moving to Florida, and, although they now live just a few blocks from the beach, they wanted a special place next to the beach. They pride themselves in offering an impeccable clean unit and go out of their way to ensure that each vacation is special. Guests become friends!

Paul Hancock & Sandi Coleman purchased this condo in 2005

Why Paul Hancock & Sandi Coleman chose Hollywood Beach

Hollywood Beach is a special place, perhaps one of the few family beaches remaining in South Florida. This unit is in the heart of everything on the beach, yet isolated by a few blocks from the commercial area. Owners take great pride in making their guests vacations specials. Please read the reviews as that is the best way to learn the views of people who have visited.

What makes this condo unique

Small building atmosphere and only steps from the ocean sand. You'll be pampered by the owners.

  • 5 of 5

This condo has been beautifully updated and provided everything we needed for our stay. Here is what we loved:

- The location was great. It allowed us to make frequent, spontaneous dips in the ocean every day, and see the waves and boardwalk activity from the condo. But we liked not being right on the busy boardwalk. Walking distance to lots of restaurants and entertainment.

- The owner's personal attention and responsiveness, as well as the excellent condition of the condo, make this unit a cut above the rest. We had no issues, but we knew that Paul would immediately take care of anything if we needed it.

- The pool is a nice plus.

- The parking spot. Never underestimate the value of a parking spot on Hollywood Beach.

- The two beds were very comfortable. The full in the bedroom is soft like a cloud, while the sofa bed in the living area was firm and high quality. The four of us (two adults, a 10 y.o. and a 7 y.o.) prepared prepared ourselves to feel tight, but it was perfect for us.

We stayed through the 4th of July, and walking right out onto the beach as the fireworks started over the ocean is a wonderful memory we will never forget! Had we not been in town primarily to visit an elderly relative, we would have enjoyed taking advantage of much more that this great location had to offer. Thank you so much for everything, Paul.

Ocean View!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is updated, clean, and the pictures and description accurately describe this unit. We are regulars to Hollywood Beach and appreciate the location as it so close to many of our favorite destinations, such as GiGi's, Taco Spot, and the Broadwalk! Paul is a great owner who takes a vested interest in the people he chooses to rent to. Thanks again for the great vacation and we will definitely be back!

A Great Place To Stay!

  • 5 of 5

The condo in Hollywood, Florida is exactly as described! It is in a perfect location to the beach and the owners give a lot of good advice as to great places to eat and visit. We really appreciated the extras such as beach chairs, towels, umbrella, etc. Thanks! We hope to come back.

Lovely condo

  • 5 of 5

The condo is beautifully decorated, spotless and furnished with high quality items. We were very happy that Paul and Sandy provided start-up items for us-- spices, coffee and filters, cleaning supplies, paper towels, foil and Saran, etc. We also enjoyed the bowl of Florida fruit and bottle of wine! Good information was available on local restaurants. Plenty of towels and beach chairs were there for our use. Shared coin washer and dryer in back of building. One caution to note: outside stairs to unit are steep and narrow, so may not be suited to seniors or families with small children. The beach and Broadwalk are only a few steps away and we enjoyed walking it every day. Great nightly entertainment 5 days a week in the outdoor bandshell, a short walk south of the condo.

Relaxing stay, outstanding condo

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for two weeks and enjoyed every aspect of this property.

The condo itself was spotless and attractively decorated. It was thoroughly well stocked so that we could enjoy our first day and not have to run out to the store for necessities. The owner was welcoming and helpful.

The location was perfect for us. We could look at the ocean every morning from our window and then go walk either the "broadwalk" or the beach to stay in shape. Hollywood Beach is so well situated to all the area attractions (such as my favorite Butterfly World); yet, you can also go days without leaving this little piece of paradise. Just relax on the beach, eat at the fantastic broadwalk restaurants (or cook your own meals if you prefer), and listen to music at the outdoor theater.

We definitely look forward to a return visit!
