and then just relax at this little slice of heaven. The beauty and fragrance of the garden will delight, but when dusk falls and the garden lights come on, you will be enchanted! If you're cooking in your room, and need some rosemary? Just step outside your room and pinch some from the plant a few feet from your door.... More

"it's the _b_r_ o_a_ d_ walk, not the boardwalk ". Sage advice! Speaking of herbs :~), the cilantro and rosemary is especially full and fragrant this week, and night bloming jasmine is in bloom. Hurry back. Steve & Josias More

it has been a week and I am still lulled by the memories. I want to go back...The DeSoto Oceanview is so perfect that I am reluctant to say too much for fear of sending flocks of other "escapees" running for their flip flops. A stay at this Inn is a dream. From the garden teeming with bougainvilla, fragrant herbs(!)... More

I almost hate to say how great this place is, as I do not want to reveal to everyone this secret gem of a beach hotel. Last month I brought my teenage daughter and her friend to the DeSoto for a full week of sun and sparkling ocean. The girls took the Desoto bikes to the mangrove-canopied trail along the... More

We stayed 6 nights at the Desoto. Located just a few steps from the beach on the quiet north end of the broadwalk area, this property is a real gem. Our efficiency, unit D, had everything we needed from coffee maker to silverware, cookware, etc., and numerous bikes to choose from to pedal south a short distance to the broadwalk,... More

We stayed at The Desoto Oceanview Inn for 12 days in January this year. The first pleasing impressions of spacious, clean, well-appointed and comfortable rooms were well-founded. In fact, we were confident it would be good since our daughter had trawled very many possible places for us to stay and she booked this one as the very best for us.... More

Everything about this SSL (Superior Small Lodging) was perfect. We were so pleasantly surprised to find such a cozy, serene, unpretentious, attractive Inn only a minute from Hollywood Beach. It had been highly recommended by an acquaintance but, not really knowing her taste in hotels, I wasn't sure what to expect. The website made it look very appealing but we... More

Thank you so much for your beautiful review of the Desoto. Josias and I are both so happy that you enjoyed Hollywood the way we do - on foot and bicycle, it really is easy to get by without a car isn't. We hope you'll be back soon. Steve and Josias More

We highly reccomend this clean, and freindly inn. The garden area just ouside our room adds a great charm and natural surrounding. We celebrated a burthday here and have found a great retreat! The inn has bikes which we used to bike the Broadwalk. We ate at a Turkish Resturant. We will be back to the DeSoto Inn for sure!

The Desoto Oceanview Inn is a fantastic vacation rental. It is right on North Hollywood Beach. The inn offers efficiency rooms as well as studios. The proprietors are friendly and helpful.

Just a quick reply to thank you for staying with us again and again. One of the best things about managing the Desoto, is when guests return, we know they've come back because they like being here, and that's just a wonderful feeling for us. Thank you. Steve & Josias More

It is difficult to put the magic of De Soto into words, putting it to music would be more adequate. For us it seemed like a piece of Paradise. Imagine a warm place with warm smiling people, a blooming garden full of sun, chirping birds and the sound and smell of the ocean. At the same time, the livings quarters... More
