About Johnny Oates
Remembering the cold winters and dreery fall while growing up in St. Louis, Missouri helps Bill appreciate the wonderful, warm climate and the beautiful tropical gardens that surround this property. After graduating from West Point, Bill proudly served his country for 21 years in the U. S. Army. Bill was an infantry officer in Ranger, Airborne, and Air Assault units. One of the highlights of his career was obtaining his masters degree from the University of Georgia in 1981 (that was when the Bulldogs won the National Football Championship) and following up with a 4 year tour teaching cadets at West Point. After retiring at the rank of Lieutenant Colonel from the Army; Bill and and his wife, Carolyn, started a small business in Georgia and eventually moved it to South Florida. Bill's wife, Carolyn, graduated from the University of Georgia and became a teacher. Carolyn is a teacher, author of 2 books, mother of 5 grown children and grandmother for 7 precious grand daughters. Grandson #1 is due on April 6, 2015. Grand child #9 arrives in September 2015. Carolyn loves decorating as you will see the second you walk into our home. She also loves opening up our home for others to enjoy as much as we enjoy it.

Why Johnny Oates chose Colee Hammock
Location, Location, Location is everything!!! Although you are hidden in the dense tropical gardens of the historical Colee Hammock area, if you walk out the back gate of the property, you are on Las Olas Blvd. only 2 blocks from the exciting eateries, clubs, and shoppes that make this area famous. As exciting as the location is, you will have trouble pulling yourself away from the sun deck, swimming pool and privacy of your own backyard. When every guest walks in the front door, I want them to feel the warmth, and comfort of being in a home from yester-year. The white picket fence, the huge shade trees and tropical gardens, the smell of burning logs in the fireplace, and the creaking of the front porch swing, all add to the house's charm and feeling of southern hospitality. The cozy feeling that our home gives us is what we want to share with every guest. Come. Relax. Enjoy. And leave refreshed and wanting to come 'home' again on your next trip to south Florida.

Las Olas Getaway
Our international guests enjoyed this property, complete with a lovely backyard to relax in, and located so close to Las Olas Blvd.
The pool and fire pit were an added bonus!
Great place to stay
Had 12 guys stay here. Enough room for all of us. Walk to restaurants and bars on Las Olas Blvd and short Uber ride to other areas of south Florida. Host was great, responsive and respectful.
Stayed for a long weekend with a large group. We all loved the house and the location couldn’t be better. The host was very accommodating and kept great communication throughout the process. Would definitely stay here again.
Lovely property, upscale neighborhood, great location
We had our annual girl’s getaway here and thoroughly enjoyed our time here. There were 8 of us and there was plenty of room for us. The home is very nice, the backyard is a beautiful oasis. We walked everywhere, lots of great bars and restaurants are close by. The property owner is very accommodating and the property owner is very attentive. I would definitely recommend staying here.
A nice place to stay
It was a really nice place to stay our kids had a great time there. The weather did not cooperate with us as we were there however we are going to plan on rebooking this sometime in the near future. This is a perfect property for family it's close to everything it has a wonderful backyard and a grill. I think the property manager for everything that they did
