I work for an airline and I travel for a living, so I am always sensitive to the needs of vacationers. If you'd like to make friends I welcome you and hope to add you to our return guest families. If you prefer privacy we honor that and provide plenty of space and solitude. Whatever your style, you'll find it here.
This home away from home is a favorite repeat for many of our yearly guests.
Please feel free to contact us if you need anything at all to make your stay in south Florida a fantastic one.
I am an avid traveler, health nut and yoga fan. I strive to make this home an oasis for my fellow travelers, yogis and seekers of adventure.
Elizabeth purchased this cottage in 2000
Hollywood is quaint and cozy and unpretentious. The beach is still a little retro and maintains a sense of old Florida. The location is ideal, close enough to get to everything, yet in a quiet neighborhood with birds in the trees and the sound of palm fronds in the breeze.
I find it good to have that sense of rejuvenation after some big adventures.
People really love this place, I think because I put a lot of love into it, and because it really means a lot to me if my guests are happy.
Thats what its all about.
I always stay here when I can, it's comfortable decorated well and the owner is awesome. It feels like home.
This house was great for our family (us, our two boys, and my parents). It was close to the beaches and board walk area. Great setup for a family and very clean and well maintained. Beautiful pool which my 3 and 5 yr olds loved! Perfect size for relaxing or planing your day outings. Operator was very responsive and helpful with questions. You can tell she took pride in her rental! Would definitely stay here again!
Madison house (the house not the cottage) was exactly as describe. Very nice home, clean in a nice area. Located close to the beach. We had multiple things happen while staying at the house.
I traveled with a friend and our 5 year old daughters for a girls trip. On our first night there we heard a man's voice in the cottage. We were under the impression that Elizabeth lived in the adjoining cottage. The home has a shared laundry room. When they mentioned shared they should say that the door to the home and the cottage open to this laundry room. We didn't not realize this and had the laundry room door open all night We then realized that the man next door could have walked into our house at any time. As he WAS using the laundry room! This is unsettling for two women traveling with two little girls. When I had asked Elizabeth she apologized and said she had a friend staying with her and should have mentioned it. OK fair enough
NEXT, I get a text message saying that she has Direct TV coming in the morning for "routine maintenance" from 8a until 12p. I explained that its really not good for us we are on vacation and really didn't want to be rushed out or have people working around us. She said OK well then we would have to be without TV, Cable and Wifi. leaving us no choice but to allow the workers there. When the service guy for Direct TV came he said he was there to install NEW service not maintenance. During this time I actually met Elizabeth and found her to be super nice and thought OK, ill just let this stuff go. She was lovely to the kids and we shared a few laughs. In fact that evening I had local friends over for a BBQ and when Elizabeth and her friends returned from a night out. they came out to our BBQ to talk and hang out. A little weird but OK.
Why the one star rating, After the first two things that happened and we were willing to get past. When I reserve the house from the VERY first email I requested a late check out. She told me at first 4 was fine. Right before we came she said the cleaning crew needs to be there for 2 so if we could pack and leave our stuff by the door that would be Ok. So on the last day we headed to the beach. I then get a email at 12:45 saying that the cleaning crew is coming at 1pm and I need to be packed by then. When I explained I am not close she asked ME to be respectful! She gave us 45 minutes to pack up and leave with 2 children in tow. I have ALL the emails and text exchanges.
Was the listing description accurate regarding the location, layout, amenities, etc ? Yes, and it is easy to get to. Nice private back yard with a pool and a place to lounge. The owner had bikes available for our use
Was the property clean and well-maintained ? Yes.
Did the owner provide good customer service ? Yes. She answered all our questions in a timely manor and was very pleasant to deal with.
Would you recommend this property to your friends or relatives ? Yes.
What activities, attractions and restaurants did you like or dislike near by ? We went to Hollywood Beach for dinner on 2 occasions, Margaritaville and Mamacita's Bar and Grill. There are tennis courts a block from the house.
Upon arrival we immediately noted the cleanliness, spacious layout and relaxing atmosphere. Our granddaughters enjoyed the pool several times during our two night stay.
The layout was perfect with the bedroom areas on either side of the living area. The beds were very comfortable.
It was wonderful having someone on site to answer any questions and We thoroughly enjoyed meeting you.
The close proximity to the Fort Lauderdale Hollywood Airport, grocery and general shopping was a huge plus.
We would highly recommend this Vacation
