My wife and I were originally from California we fell in love with south Florida and made it our home for years. We purchased the Young Mansion and did a extensive five year renovation to return the house to its former glory. At the time we had two children but as our family grew (now six) we decided to move back to California to be closer to family. We put off the decision for years because it was hard leaving this beautiful home. Living in the Young Mansion was a one of a kind experience, you felt like you were living in a Andalusian or Tuscan villa.

The Owner purchased this estate in 2002

This house has it all. It is close to the beach and it is a Spanish/Moorish architectural masterpiece. We fell in love with it the first time we saw it. The place is so sophisticated it really gives you the experience of living in another era.

Huge pool, formal gardens, hardwood floors and cuban tile throughout the house. House was built with a unique craftsmanship that would be incredibly difficult to duplicate today. Insurance companies valued the replacement cost to reproduce a house of this magnitude to be valued at 5 million dollars because of the home's intricate details. The place is a destination unto itself and staying here is a total experience.

Elegance and Charm – A Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We recently rented out the Young Mansion for a reunion of sorts. We had six couples and two solo friends for a total of 14 and it would have been possible to not even run into each other the property was so sprawling. We were all awestruck from the moment we arrived. The pictures do not do the property justice. It was essentially like having you own private resort. The pool, cabana and surrounding grounds were immaculate and very private. The décor inside the house makes for a very cozy and intimate vibe as well. I would highly recommend this to any group of friends or a family that is looking for a place that keeps everybody in one place.

A Great Place for a Family Get-Together

  • 5 of 5
We recently enjoyed a weekend at this beautiful historic estate. We also were able to get support from Michael, the property manager who was quite friendly and helpful. We enjoyed cooking our own meals at the chef kitchen, the pool, and the outdoor shower. We also enjoyed a couple of mangoes that had fallen near the pool. They were VERY sweet!

Old Hollywood Charm!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed with another family over spring break (4 adults, 4 teenagers, 1 child) and we could have had another family as well! These are very spacious accommodations with plenty of entertainment at the house and nearby. We walked downtown for dinners, walked to the beach, rented bikes and took advantage of our own private pool on many occasions. Evenings were spent sitting around the pool telling stories and playing games. Groceries are just up the road and the kitchen is very well stocked. This is a lovely property in a charming beach town.

Second Stay in 6 Months at this amazing home.

  • 5 of 5
For the second time in 6 months we had the special experience of staying at the Young House. Even though we are local we love this place. It has everything you would want in a vacation rental. Not only is it spacious but it has all the history and the feel of a romantic Villa in a far away land. I have to say as much as I love the home, the gardens and pool area are my favorite places. You can just sit and relax in not only a beautiful setting but a peaceful place just a few blocks from my Favorite Beach in all the world. You can literally never leave this house for a week and have an incredible vacation. I live locally and I still love this place and staying here. Great place for family reunions and business retreats. This stay included special intimate Dinners for some of our faithful church members. They loved the place and it made a great place to spend time with some very special people. I highly recommend this home for any special vacation or occasion. Please note it is almost a 100 years old, if you are expecting a brand new home you might be disappointed. But if you value History, amazing architecture and all the luxuries of today together then you will love the most celebrated house in Hollywood. I love the Billiards room and the original wood floors, even the little creaks when you walk. This place weds yesterday with today. I highly recommend it and hope to stay here again. The owner is great to work with and his Management team led by Elizabeth will do anything they can to make your stay memorable. Anything we needed they did their best to accommodate.

Great Planning Retreat Location

  • 5 of 5
Our Church does an annual Planning Retreat. We have stayed many places and locations and this time we decided to stay close to home. The Young Mansion was the perfect place. From the Pool area and Gardens, Courtyard to the inside spacious and large rooms. The kitchen was perfect for fixing our own meals. Everything we needed for the Retreat was there and more. Our Staff loved the place and couldn't wait to stay over and enjoy the quiet serene atmosphere. One of the great benefits is the Housekeeper/Caretaker Elizabeth was easily accessible and was always there quickly if we needed her. We did have a few issues with the A/C units but she was all over it. Its an old house it will have little issues but I loved that the owner and the caretaker were incredibly helpful and on top of any little issue that arose. I highly recommend the home not only for vacations but business and organizational retreats. Thanks Richard and team for a great stay. We loved it. Guy

Building Memories

  • 5 of 5
My family and I vacation in South Florida regularly since we used to live there. We've tried to get the Young mansion on a couple of occasions and finally were able to do so this year. This house is a must visit for those who love history, who find value in an making memories.

The house has plenty of room to spread out. We found our three primary gathering places were the enormous dining room table (perfect for eating and playing games); the billard room, with a pool table for 1846 (just gorgeous) which hosted several tournaments, and the indescribably beautiful pool area.

The kitchen was wonderful with the size of our group; industrial type appliances made dinner prep a fun, family-oriented event! It was just delightful.

We hosted a dinner for friends one evening and several locals said, "we've driven by this place for years and have always wanted to be IN it." It is quite an experience to be in such an historic home.

The owner sought to make our visit an exceptional time. He was easy to work with, agreeable, available, responsive. From a partially stocked refrigerator to access to his cell phone, he made our time his priority. We ran into a couple of problems but the owner was not only quick to resolve the problem, but even offered a very gracious conciliatory gift for our family, which itself was a wonderful experience.

The only caveat I'd make for a renter is, the house is old. If someone is looking for the perfect, latest/greatest amenities, they might find this a little lacking. But with great AC, perfectly running hot water, TV's in most bedrooms and a host of other amenities (including 1/2 from the beach, which we visited daily), it lacks nothing our high-maintenance family needed. We found the "old" enchanting and part of the experience.

Thank you Richard for your great hospitality.
