AN ARRAY OF FREESTANDING VACATION APARTMENTS, FROM STUDIOS TO 3 BEDROOMS

Decadent Compound is comprised of 5 distinct structures that vary in size from studio efficiencies to a 2-story, 3 Bedroom lodge - perfect for groups of people who want to be together, yet appreciate having their own space. Every bedroom features King size beds.

- DECADENT MURALS (Building 4)

Decadent Murals, named after the dramatic mural dominating the airy, bright living room, is a 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom, 2-story house that sits at the rear of the property. Decadent Murals faces the pool and backs up to an enormous lawn. Sleeps up to 6 people.

- DECADENT RETREAT (Building 3)

Decadent Retreat is a beautiful, spacious apartment adorned with murals on its exterior with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, both a shower and a tub, and lots of closet space. It faces the pool and an enormous lawn. The Decadent Retreat also has a Queen sized Lazyboy Sleeper with memory foam mattress. Sleeps 4-6 people.

- DECADENT STUDIO (Building 2)

Decedent Studio is a chic, open-floorplan space for living and sleeping, a small dining table, plus a separate expansive foyer ideally suited as a workspace or storage area for travelers with toys. It sits in the middle of the property and faces the pool. Sleeps 2 people.

- DECADENT KEYS (Building 1)

Decadent Keys is an intimate space with a bedroom separate from the living area, featuring a small kitchen. It sits towards the front of the property and faces the pool. The Decadent Keys also has a Queen sized Lazyboy Sleeper with memory foam mattress. Sleeps 2-4 people.

- DECADENT SUITE (2417)

Decadent Suite is an adorable, airy space with light-colored furnishings, plus a freestanding soaking tub for luxurious baths large enough for two people. Featuring a small foyer, it sits at the front of the property facing the street and park. Sleeps 2 people.

EXCEPTIONAL GROUNDS, AMENITIES AND OPEN SPACES. PLUS ART.

The Decadent Compound is the ultimate private oasis, ringed by 6’ wood fencing and tastefully accentuated by a 6 foot concrete wall, giving guests extra layers of privacy, intimacy and security on a 360° basis. The property also features an exceptionally large, heated, crystal clean swimming pool, flanked by a large expanse of tile decking, with integrated 10-person hot tubs. Each of the pools and hot tubs feature waterfalls, water fountain features that, and fantastic LED lighting that changes colors. Poolside is also a great place to congregate for cocktails with fellow travelers as the sun goes down.

The main grounds span over 40,000 contiguous square feet. The grassy grounds have been completely leveled and re-sodded, and host native tropical foliage, coconut-laden palm trees and mature native fruit trees that bear avocados, star fruit and mangoes. Directly adjacent to the property is Rose’s Garden Park, a one-acre eco-designed public park featuring manicured lawns, a shaded children’s playground, and 5 state-of-the-art gym workout stations for those who wish to properly exercise.

Decadent Compound’s expansive grounds are also perfectly suited for peacefully fostering creativity and wellness, with plentiful space to practice yoga, meditate, exercise, stargaze, write books and blogs, create new music, and flex artistic muscles like painting, sculpting and photographing nature, people and objects. Guests will see expressive murals by top muralists.

A RARE DESTINATION COMPOUND FOR LARGE GROUPS

South Florida is the perfect destination for friends, family and business travelers to choose for incredible weather, plentiful entertainment options and world-famous events. Decadent Compound is that extraordinarily rare combination of location, privacy, expansive grounds and varied accommodations that can host 16-20 guests in extraordinary comfort. Destination wedding parties, corporate retreats, and centralized special event lodging with friends are all possible here.

STANDARD STOCKED ESSENTIALS

Every free-standing private accommodation at Decadent Compound comes fully stocked with plates, bowls, glassware and wine glasses, cooking pots & pans, a coffee pot, cooking utensils, knife sets, silverware, bedding, blankets and bath towels. We also routinely stock bath essentials such as bath/body wash, shampoo; house essentials like dishwashing liquid, washing machine detergent, paper towels, and toilet paper; plus other things like trash bags.

WIRED, CONNECTED AND PROGRAMMED FOR ENTERTAINMENT

There is fiber-optic superfast WiFi that works great both inside and outside. Bedrooms and/or living rooms are likely to feature Flat Screen TV's, Apple TV controllers, Netflix and Hulu subscriptions, and an array of pre-purchased movies in a master library. Building 4's living room has cable tv with sports package.

CONVENIENT ONSITE PARKING, AND A TRULY AMAZING LOCATION

Unlike many other high-occupancy rentals located within residential neighborhoods, which can become problematic for neighbors, Decadent Compound has plentiful onsite parking integrated within the property. We can accommodate up to 7 cars. Because the compound is located at the far end of a dead-end street, street traffic is minimal.

The compound itself is phenomenally located less than 1 mile from Interstate 95, the main north-south interstate highway artery connecting Maine, New York, Washington DC, and Miami. Fort Lauderdale International Airport is a 7-mile, 10 minute drive; Miami International Airport is a 21-mile, 30 minute drive; beautiful Hollywood Beach is a 4-mile, 10 minute drive; and Miami’s famous South Beach is a 23 mile, 30 minute drive away. Lastly, the Florida Tri-Rail system has a train stop only 1 mile away, Hollywood Station, making day trips to West Palm Beach, Miami, or any coastal city between, a very easy commute, with taxis and Uber cars readily available at each station.

DECADENT COMPOUND CAN EXPAND TO DECADENT NEIGHBORHOOD

Decadent Compound is part of a larger group of properties owned by the same host in the same neighborhood. For groups larger than 20 people which require more than 8 bedrooms, groups can also book Decadent Oasis (Sleeps up to 14) and Decadent Groves (Sleeps up to 10), both 5 Bedroom / 5 Bath homes with pools nearby, plus Decadent Cottage, a 1 Bedroom across the street (Sleeps up to 4). Called Decadent Neighborhood, this economically-advantageous package expands the total number of bedrooms to 19 and the total number of guests up to 44. Decadent Neighborhood, the ultimate destination package, has it’s own dedicated listing. All four of these separate properties are within easy walking distance

Guestbook comments from the owner

can't express how awesome this experience was. From start to finish Bram was extremely attentive to our needs. When we arrived I needed a pack and play in one of the houses, I called Bram and within 15 minutes his head maid Maria was there to bring it to the house and set it up for us. She also made up the pullout couch with out our even having to ask. Anything I asked for was provided. The houses were spacious and very clean. All linens and towels were fresh and clean and we had plenty for showering and for pool use. The pool and hot tub were very clean and the temperature of both was perfect. Plenty of room for parking and all the beds were comfortable. We were there for a hockey tourney so we didn't have much time to use the Apple TVs, but when we did, they were easy to navigate. We need to an extra night for 3 people and Bram accommodated us on fairly brief notice! I can't say enough about Bram and his employees and the property. Would most definitely would stay there again. I highly recommend it!! Stephanie Ciulla

Great reunion!

  • 5 of 5

We had a family reunion at the Decadent Compound recently. It was a wonderful experience! The property with 5 houses in an enclosed compound provided enough privacy and great areas to get together and have lots of fun for all the family members. The pool was very nice and well maintained. The units were well stocked with all essential items. We had to call in a small maintenance problem and the service was prompt. All in all, we really enjoyed staying at this place.

Added bonus was the wonderful mangoes from the trees in the property! :)

I found a winner

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed the decandent compound. The host was very helpful and knowledgeable of the great places to eat in area. Please check with the host if you want to do additional fun things like rent a yacht or limo he can point you in the right direction. The compound was very clean and well stocked with everyday essentials. Our group was a mixture of single and married and privacy was not an issue. We look forward to booking the compound again on our next visit to Florida.

There are also dozens of yacht chartering companies nearby that provide captained and provisioned larger boats. And fishing boats - from offshore “party” boats that provide rods, bait and beverages for 25 - 50 people, to private sport fishing boats that go deep offshore - are literally everywhere around Hollywood, Fort Lauderdale and Miami.

- A GOLFER’S PARADISE

Fantastic golf courses, ranging from inexpensive to luxurious, are within 5 minutes to 20 minutes away, including Orangebrook, a 36-hold course home to burrowing owls and other wildlife seen while you play. Also nearby is Hillcrest Country Club, Hollywood Beach Golf Resort, and Grande Oaks, where they famously filmed Caddyshack, which is only 11 miles away.

Aventura Mall has hundreds of major retailers like Nordstrom, Bloomingdales, Macy’s, Sears, Hugo Boss, Tory Burch and Tiffany & Company.

Anne Kolb Nature Center, a 1,501-acre coastal mangrove wetland that rents canoes and kayaks, is only 4 miles away. The nature center is home to a wide variety of plants and animals, including some threatened and endangered species, and features hiking trails, fishing piers, an observation tower and a huge saltwater aquarium.

The Florida Everglades, a 1.5 million acre subtropical park that’s the home to manatees, American crocodile, the elusive Florida panther, and endangered leatherback turtles is less than 45 minutes away.
