I could not recommend this place more. Our priority for where we were going to stay was for it to be clean, right by the beach, and at a price that was affordable for us: not splurging, but willing to pay a bit more if it was worth it (since we were looking for a place that likely a lot of people would also like to book).

Staying at the studio apartment begins with a beautiful view of the beach just 1 building away, then a short walk from the parking space out front, through a beautiful landscaped walk with chairs, tables, and a fire pit, to an entryway that’s every bit as homey as the main pic I saw on the website.

Inside is a comfortable full size bed, as well as what you’ll see in the pics. The A/C was sufficient and allowed us to be comfortably cool as needed. The kitchen area had the basics for prep and serving, though given it had a potato masher and veggie peeler as well as a cork screw, ups it a bit in my view. Basic salt and pepper shakers were provided as well. The refrigerator and freezer worked as would be expected.

Nearby and outside, though out of view, was a clothesline, which was a nice touch.

The very short walk (1 building away) to the beach was awesome. The “broadwalk”, beautiful and clean beach, view (of course), and proximity to so many businesses along the broadwalk made it very appealing. You can rent the usual nearby: bikes, umbrella chairs, jet skis, etc.

We met the owners (our choice, and had talked to them by phone before our stay) and they’re the kind of people that I like to know that I’m supporting by renting their property. Very genuine, helpful, and kind couple.

We hope to stay there again.

This is an absolutely perfect place to stay while vacationing in Florida!! It's only a few steps from the Hollywood boardwalk, it's quaint and clean, it's very plush with beautiful foliage all around in the back, it comes with parking, and Mr. John and his family are VERY accommodating and kind! We will DEFINITELY come back here to stay on our next vacation!🌻
Meenakshi S. Aug 2021
Smooth booking process and the place was easy to find. John met us at check in and helped us get acquainted.
The house is a few steps away from the beach, beautifully decorated. It is perfect for couples.
Loved everything, would love to come back again.

Kevin K. Mar 2021

Cynthia B. Mar 2021
Everything you need. Awesome location. Walk out your door and you are feet away from the beach, live music, shops, and restaurants. Or stay in and cook on the BBQ and enjoy outdoor dining in the great backyard garden area. Paradise! The owners are awesome as well! Merci!!!! I will be back.
Deborah F. Jan 2021
1/2 a block from beach! we watched the sunrise every morning and they were amazing! We loved the back garden and the couple that lives there are the nicest people. We will be back!
Mary M. Nov 2020
We loved the proximity to the beach and the price is hard to beat.
Farhad A. Jun 2020
The space was really cozy, and the hosts/neighbors were very kind and helpful. The apartment was less than 2 mins from the beach which was beautiful and lined with many stores and restaurants. The outdoor area was very relaxing and we were able to cook a few meals on the grill. Overall, great experience and I would highly recommend to anyone staying near south Florida looking for a beach escape.
Richard W. Jan 2020
Great location close to beach and boardwalk. Management on was excellent.
Gayla M. May 2019
We love the short walk to the boardwalk and beautiful Hollywood beach. The property is always clean and stocked with everything you need for your stay. It is always quiet and the owners are so friendly and helpful. Great rate and location.
Jennifer S. Apr 2019
Right next to the beach, place was very neat and clean and kitchen had all the essentials. The owners were so nice!
Richard W. Jan 2019
The little studio was exactly what we expected. It fit our needs like a glove. It was very clean and comfortable and the owners have thought of everything. And, best of all, it was just feet from the Boardwalk and the sand.
Mark T. Oct 2018
A few steps from the broad-walk and ocean. Small studio with everything needed, in a good condition, clean and safe. Wonderful green yard with shadow and garden furniture. We got very good experience and had a great time. We miss it already.
Small negative points. The bed is smaller then announced Queen size. The wall mounted air conditioner is too close to the bed. First time guest needs more detailed instruction: where to park, how to get the key from the safe locker. We cold not park and get into apartment without the kind help of Linda and John (very nice hospitable
couple of local residents). The fees (VRBO and cleaning), each $90, seem too high.
Manager response:
We appreciate this feedback and are using it for improvement. We are ensuring the parking (directly in front of the house) and lock box instructions (attached to the door handle) are adequately explained in our guest's check-in information. The owners did recently change their beds, and we will get that updated on our listing as soon as possible. Thank you!

Ubicacion, la cordialidad de Jhon y su esposa, todo bien muy bueno.
Tasha A. Jul 2018
I loved the location and how close it was to the beach. The owner John and his wife were very sweet as well. The garden was a nice touch as well. Good price for it being so close to the beach. It's about 1 min walk to the boardwalk. Good night life walking distance as well.

Rented a small cottage style room with my boyfriend from mid to end June.
Apon early arrival, the owner was in the room, finishing getting the room ready with a few very sweet personal touches. She made sure everything was in order and placed fresh eucalyptus in the vases. From there they introduced themselves and it felt very warm and welcoming. The room was clean, well maintained, and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay for two. The outdoor courtyard was a little oasis created by someone with a green thumb. Everything from flowers, to succulents,Aloe, and even fresh herbs. Plenty of outdoor seating and a nice size grill.
It was so close to the beach, that packing a lunch cooler didn’t make sense to us.
I have stayed at many high end hotels and resorts in the past, but this is as a little more special, due to the owner hospitality... it felt just like home
Thank you again
Kelly W. Jul 2018
Cute apartment in a great location. Perfect for 1-2 people. Literally steps from the beach and boardwalk. Clean and well-kept. Private and safe. Would book again.
Dekalb S. Apr 2018
This place was very convenient. Right on the boardwalk and a few steps away from the beach. Great location for anyone who's not interested in renting a car or doing too much beyond the beach and boardwalk. Even an uber ride into the city is only a few dollars.
My only issue was the shower didn't drain completely while taking a shower. The water filled up to above my feet the entire time I showered each time. This would be the only reason why I may choose to stay somewhere else. Otherwise, it's clean, GREAT location, and the family that lives there is very nice.
Maureen M. Mar 2018
Loved the proximity to the beach and broadwalk and the well-kept home, particularly the lovely orchids and decor. Patio furniture allowed opportunity to dine outside and soak up the sun. Owners were friendly and attentive but not intrusive. Will definitely be back.

Get away from the crazies and enjoy and regenerate in this lovely place half a block from the Atlantic Ocean. Cozy place with everything you would need for a great vacation.
Vladimir C. Apr 2017
Great place for couple
Adrian M. Mar 2017
We were very happy with our stay and we will come back again
Lori S. Dec 2016
We found this great little efficiency room to be the perfect place for our recent visit to Hollywood! It had everything we needed and was super clean and comfortable! Would 100% stay here again????
John D. Dec 2016
We absolutely loved the private courtyard! The convenience to the boardwalk and beach were awesome! And the owners were wonderful hosts throughout the entire week.
Tashawna H. Sep 2016
Bella Vista is wonderful! Its located steps away from a nice part of the beach. You can either go a little bit to the right and being a more crowded spot or stay nearer to the entrance on the left and be a little more reserved. You don't have to have a car for this location but it is very helpful. I only rented a car for half of my stay. There are few places to eat and get great drinks on the boardwalk and there is a great bicycle rental. If you don't feel like leaving the property they also have a grey back yard area that has loungers where you can still get a tan or sit and enjoy a good book and a barbecue grill! The owners are very very kind. I will definitely go back to that location!

If you're looking for a unique multi-cultural and cosmopolitan vacation experience with proximity to the Atlantic Ocean and Hollywood's famous Broadwalk, Hollywood Beach is the best. And my experience with Vacasa was the icing on the cake. Courteous, accommodating, and efficient staff are at your beck and call. Vacasa is the new hospitality standard of excellence.
