This is a very cute, charming, brand new 1 bedroom apartment, perfectly locate it between the beach (10 minutes) and I95 without the noisy crowd and with a nice grassy garden, nonsmoking environment, there is a yoga platform, and many other amenities . Very peaceful and hiding from the craziness.

We like to rent to conscious , aware people with a peaceful attitude and a sense of community.

Low key, not loud music, no parties, people.

Spacious with everything you need for a nice relaxing stay.

About Jorge Alfano

Jorge Alfano

I am a professional producer musician for the last 35 years, I am also an author and my wife an ex Broadway performer, we like to live in peace in a spiritual, creative environment, this is why we are developing ' Zen Village' to rent to like-minded people.

I usually perform Japanese Zen music in the gardens of the property. Our neighbors are very cool. I take people to Machu Pichu in Peru every year. And I hope that travelers and guests have a great time staying at the ' Zen Village'. Jorge

WOnderful ambiance

  • 5 of 5

WE greatly enjoyed the apartment and the marvelous garden by its side.

SOme days we did not go to the beach and prefered to stay in the garden and read a book. THe neighbor hood si nice and quiet so we took long walks. MR. ALfano was kind and supplied all we needed in the kitchen (I like to cook). THe experince of the 2 months at Zen was very agreable.

ALso, the location is very close to the beach and numerous restaorants

On Holywood Blvd.

Jorge was great, very helpful & accommodating..had an issue with ants one night & coming back to lights being on.. could have used more items in kitchen like pot holders, dish towels, soap..we thought everything was there. Grill was available but we had no utensils to use it...Jorge was very nice about everything

Owner's Response: Barbara and Michael were very nice and very happy to be at the apartment, the things that she requested where all there , the utensils were under the cover of the BBQ machine. We keep lots of things in storage because people have different ways, so I made it clear to ask for anything. She call me Sunday 7:30 am to tell me that ants were walking around, when I got there at 8:00 am the "imaginary Ants " where gone. I laugh and I left . It's impossible to please everyone, I tried. This is a 5 star reviewed apartment so this 2 starts are completely unfair . Please read the others guests reviews.

Winter vacation

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I spent two months here. It was very quiet and relaxing with a nice garden area to sit outside. The rental was very clean and had everything we needed for our stay. Parking was just outside the door and internet connection was excellent. The rental is situated in a residential area, with library and grocery store within walking distance. It is close to the I-95 if you want to visit Miami or Fort Lauderdale. Hollywood beach is a few minutes drive away with lots of available parking. We visited numerous City and State parks in the area. Ingrid was very helpful if there were problems and the owner dealt with these right away. I would recommend this rental for your stay in Hollywood.

A pleasant stay...

  • 4 of 5

I had a pleasant 5 weeks in this one bedroom unit, while working in Hollywood. Ingrid was very quick to answer any problems that arose, and Jorge was a great guy to do business with. Recommended.

Beautiful, quiet place like home

  • 5 of 5

We are three sisters living in three different continents in the world and we wanted a quiet place to get together and spend two weeks, relaxing and just enjoying Florida. And we got it and much more. The house is carefully decorated, with good artistic taste and very comfortable. We really enjoyed the oriental ambiance and lightening. It is in a beautiful little village at a convenient location, close to the beach, to Hollywood downtown, small cafes, shops and restaurants, to the airport, to I-95 to go to Miami and everywhere, but it is away from the crowd and the fuzz of nearby tourist sites, so the nights are very quiet and restful. The owner Jorge is a neighbor. He is a world famed musician and has made his property a sacred place of good energy and friendliness. When you live in a nice place, the entire trip becomes great. I believe the owner understands this perfectly and is always ready to help and make our stay a great stay, and I must say, he is very successful. We would definitely recommend this place without any hesitation.
