Tropical Pool Home Near The Beach

House - Entire home/apt · Coolidge St, Hollywood, FL 33020, United States

The Space

PLEASE NOTE: I HAVE MOVED OUT OF THIS HOUSE, SO IT WILL NOW BE OFFERED AS A WHOLE HOUSE RENTAL. MOST OF MY REVIEWS ARE BY THOSE WHO HAVE RENTED ROOMS FROM ME OVER THE PAST FEW YEARS. ALTHOUGH I WILL STILL BE HAPPY TO HELP YOU WITH ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE ABOUT THE AREA, I WILL NOT BE AROUND TO MAKE BREAKFAST AND BAKE BREADS --SORRY ABOUT THAT. YOU WILL BE ON YOUR OWN, BUT I AM ALWAYS JUST A PHONE CALL AWAY :)

My house is a comfortable 3 bedroom 2 bath home just a mile from the beautiful Hollywood Beach Broadwalk, less than half a mile from West Lake Park, and 2 miles from the nightlife of downtown Hollywood. My home has a huge pool surrounded by lush tropical landscaping.

The house is equipped with WiFi. The living room has an older style TV, basic cable, and a blu-ray player. There are several board games and a wide variety of reading material. The house is not a good fit for families looking to stay in the lap of luxury and be entertained by state-of-the-art electronics. It is a warm and inviting home where families and friends can come together, relax, and create wonderful memories.

The master bedroom has a king size bed, an en suite bath, and a private entrance from the pool area. The second bedroom has a full size bed, and the third bedroom has a queen size bed. The library nook has a futon that folds out to a full size bed. There is a second bathroom with a tub and shower.

The beautiful kitchen is has everything you need to whip up a quick snack or a 5 course gourmet meal. Dishes, silverware, glassware, stemware, pots, pans, cooking utensils, and small appliances are all provided in this well equipped kitchen.

There is a washer and dryer in the garage (please supply your own detergent, as this tends to be a personal preference.)

In addition, the house comes with two beach cruisers and a tandem that you may use for local exploring.

Hollywood Beach is centrally located between Ft. Lauderdale Beach and Miami Beach -- 15 minute drive to both.

I am a Ft Lauderdale native, and I am very proud of my hometown. I am an expert on everything awesome South Florida has to offer, and will be pleased to help you plan a fabulous vacation.

PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION: My home is only 4 blocks from the main bus route. The #1 bus will bring you directly to downtown Ft Lauderdale and the Ft Lauderdale airport (only a 10 minute ride.) It will also bring you south to Aventura Mall in Miami (only a 10 or 15 minute ride.) The Aventura Mall is a main Miami hub for transferring on to a downtown, midtown, or South Beach bus.

The water taxi is the most enjoyable (but not the fastest) way of getting from my house to Ft Lauderdale and Miami. The water taxi makes several stops at various points of interest, and the captain is also a very knowledgeable tour guide. As you make your way to your destination, you will view multi-million dollar homes and yachts.

Getting to and from the Miami airport can be tricky depending on the time of day because of the train schedules. You will have to take a train and a bus. My home is approximately 2 miles east of the Tri-Rail (email hidden)is trip will be approximately 1hr and 45 minutes.

Would you like to take a day trip to the Bahamas? The first ferry service between the US mainland and the Bahamas is now operating daily (except Wednesdays) from Port Everglades Terminal 1 in Ft Lauderdale at 10 am, and from Freeport Harbour Terminal 1 in Grand Bahama at 7:30 pm. The 463-passenger express ferry makes the 76-mile crossing in 2.5 hours. A same-day, R/T costs $142 economy or $173 first class. If a traveler stays overnight, a RT is $193 econ./$223 first. These prices include $18 Bahamas departure tax and a $12.50 operational charge each way. In comparison, on the same route, Bahamasair charges about $250 for a same-day RT ticket, including taxes and fees. Passport required.

  • La maison de Patty est vraiment charmante et très bien située.
    La communication avec Patty à été excellente et d'une rapidité hors pair .Seuls points négatifs: l'eclairage et les ustensiles de cuisine ( chaudrons et couteaux) sont insuffisants pour 6 personnes
    Peut-être aussi un nouveau grille-pain!!!
    Nous avons toutefois passé un excellent séjour .
    Merci Patty

    Response from Patty:

    Thank you for being wonderful guests, and thank you for your suggestions. I have purchased three new floor lamps, so guests can move them around to suit their lighting needs, another set of pots and pans, and a new toaster. I only wish I had known when you first arrived; I would have had my property manager bring these supplies to your right away. Well, it will be just as you like it should you return. :)
    Thanks again!

  • Very homey and comfortable; it fitted the bill for my mom, son, and I. Unfortunately, it was not warm enough to use the pool; but is kept in great condition.

  • Thank you Patty,
    Our stay was very enjoyable. The home is in a wonderful location. It is close to stores, beach, a park and a main route creating easy access to everything in Florida. Most of all it is a great place to hang out on a beautiful day. Patty is a reliable and responsive host. I wish I had the option to stay longer.

  • This is a beautiful, very peaceful and comfortable home.
    From the front yard landscaping to the tropical wallpapers in the bathrooms, It doesn't get any more South Florida than this! This property is located in a very quiet neighborhood with nice secluded rear parking. The swimming pool is absolutely gorgeous especially in the evening when the sun hits and warms the water just right and it's also well maintained. Everything I needed was at my fingertips, washer and dryer, very fast internet and bicycles.
    Patty was a very reliable, excellent host and communication with her was superb! She also has very good taste in interior decorating, I will need some pointers from her later on when I purchase my first South Florida home;)
    I will definitely stay at her place again!

  • When we asked Patty a question she replied "because I am in love" so if you ask me how was my stay at Patty's home the only thing I can say is "I am in LOVE!!!". I love everything: Patty, her home, her small letters left for us, just everything!
    Patty, thank you for your hospitality and wonderfull time we spend with you!

    I now only offer my home as a whole house rental, and this reservation was
    for a single room rental. I assure you all future reservations for the
    entire house will be honored. Thankfully, this guest was very understanding
    about the cancelation because I contacted them months in advance, offered a
    full refund, and even assisted in finding alternate accommodations. Please
    feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. :)

  • Patty's place is lovely and close to the beach. She has bikes she lets you use and we used them both days we were there. She was very informative and gave us good suggestions on what to do. She gave us a wonderful breakfast and made us feel right at home. We ate on the back porch by the pool amongst all the beautiful tropical plants/landscape. We really enjoyed Patty's conversation and will definitely stay again should we have the chance.

  • Now that we are home from our Panama Canal cruise, I have access to the internet and I'm happy to say we throoughly enjoyed our stay with Patty and would stay with her again. Patty was super-helpful, picking us up at the airport on a Friday night, and driving us to the Port of Miami for our cruise for a reasonable rate. Nice location. We didn't use the pool, but she got our holiday off to a geat start. We appreciated the restaurant recommendations. Watch out for the mosquitoes at dusk by the intercoastal waterway!

  • This is a fantastic house in a quiet neighborhood. Patty is super friendly and knowledgeable about things to do and places to see. Our room was nice sized, clean, with a coffee pot in room. Being able to wash a load of clothes was a plus, minimal dirty clothes for the trip home. The bed was firm and comfortable. Patty set out fruit and breakfast items plus had the large coffee maker ready to brew every morning. Having bikes at our disposal made our stay even better. She has several brochures about area attractions, the water taxi and delivery food in the kitchen or just ask, she has great ideas. There are grocery and drug stores close by, and several options for food in every direction. Late night swims in the pool after a day of riding and exploring the city was a great way to relax. We will stay with Patty again when we venture down to South Florida.
