We love going on cruises out of New Jersey, Fort lauderdale and Miami. I am an avid fisherman. We love to fish out of Key Largo and Fort Lauderdale. Fishing for Mahi Mahi in April thru October is lots of fun.Just ask Kevin and he will tell you all kinds of fish stories.

KEVIN purchased this house in 2002

Why KEVIN chose Downtown

We chose this home because it was so big, there are not many 5 bedroom 3 bath pool homes in the area. Plus it had a waterfront dock to go fishing.

What makes this house unique

The minute you enter the home and see the whole area, it opens right to the pool and intracoastal.What a nice view!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Very welcomed. Everything was accurate or better.

The experience staying at this place was awesome, very big spacious house, nice pool and view from the dock, nice outdoor poolside dining, the place is better than the photos. We loved cooking and spending time in this place, we wanted a place that was big enough for the family and the kitchen was stocked with pots and pans and spices needed to cook, we enjoyed cooking here and eating at the house, we enjoyed it so much that we actually never ate out, lol. The neighborhood is nice, close to Galleria Mall and Publix.

This was our first time using Homeaway and we were extremely happy with the experience at this home. Three members of our group got a flight a day earlier and Kevin helped to quickly adjust the dates to give us a day earlier. Checking in and checking out was smooth.

Would definitely book this place again, Kevin is a great host. Communicates quickly and everything is carefully thought out and efficient.

Great family getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is a great property for a extended family getaway. The living area was huge where all the kids could play together. The child proof fence around the pool was a real bonus as it took a lot of the worry away from wandering kids.

Clean, quiet and well stocked. Highly recommend

Not as clean as we would have liked

  • 3 of 5

The feel of the property and the living space were very nice, but on arrival we noticed the house wasn't very clean. Trash was found on the floor under toilet and in the bedroom, and the floors were not well swept. Additionally, the location was at the end of a channel, so there was a ton of trash that washed in and was depressing to look at. Obviously not the owner's fault, but it did deter from the overall experience.

Owner's Response: Tracy came to me and was thanking us so much. Her prior rental home had cancelled on her and she booked our home for Easter last minute. We have 23 reviews on our home and this is the first one with negative comments. We are owner managers. Our home is a 5 bedroom 3 bath heated pool home. it is vacuumed and mopped by the cleaners and we personally inspect it. Now if there was any problem, I am available 24/7 to clean or fix anything if there is a problem. We go above and beyond for you , for example we supply 10 pool towels in addition to the bath towels. That is over 20 towels minimum. We have plastic cups in addition to glasses. We even leave an extra bbq tank in case it runs out.We have just added a new baby/child fence on the pool and on the pool dock.The city is supposed to clean the canals so I called them to report this. We did receive positive comments via text from Tracy upon exit,"Hi Kevin! Thanks for the nice stay at your home. It certainly is set up for a large group like ours. When can I expect the security deposit to be refunded?"

Perfect for our family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

The house was exactly as represented, large, roomy and comfortable. It was great for the 10 of us on a family vacation. Good location, near many restaurants and shopping. Plenty of comfortable seating for everyone, inside and outside by the pool. We would definitely stay there again.

Downtown Hollywood is about 40 minutes to the south, and Boca Raton is about 40 minutes to the north.
