“Love Sea Downs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2014

We recently enjoyed our third year stay at Sea Downs directly on the Broadwalk in Hollywood Beach; we already look forward to next year. The location is perfect, a short walk from the busiest section of the Broadwalk to a quieter and less crowded area with the Broadwalk, beach and ocean at your front door. There's a common patio with umbrella tables with chairs and chaise lounges when you opt out of the beach. We stay in one of the one bedroom apartments--with a beautiful large window view of the palm trees, beach and water. Everything you need is provided; large refrigerator; gas stove; plenty of storage space; central air conditioning; fresh towels six days a week; immaculate and the owners--Claudia and Karl-- live on the premises (top third floor). They and the others, including Leslie and Sue, are wonderful. Professional, welcoming, attentive and responsive; everyone tries his/her best to make your stay ideal. Walk to restaurants, shopping and entertainment--on the Broadwalk. We recommend the delicious food at Sugar Reef and Taco Shack but there are many choices. You can buy the NYTimes at the near-Mariott each day. Parking for one car is included and there is a Publix five minutes away. Movie complex is about 10 minutes away for that rainy day. What is there to not love?

Room Tip: Book early as many, including us, come back year after year.

We loved Sea Downs . Our room was fantastic,amazing view, very clean and comfortable. We stayed in one bedroom,and loved it. Manager Claudia went above and beyond to make our stay an unforgettable time. She also has her husband Karl,Miss Leslie,Trudy and Sue helping her make our stay complete. What a wonderful way to spend our Christmas vacation. Thanks to all of you

From the very first beginning we were looking forward to our first vacations alone. After the arrival the herzog family invited us really friendly and lovely and we had a warm welcome. Our vacation apartment was simply awesome and had everything we needed. The service of the employees was always helpfull and friendly... we also get some insider advices where to eat or go the best and this made our summer vacations pretty spectacular. We will never forget our trip to Hollywood, Florida. The beach was as close as you could possibly think of and also the evenings were always a new highligh. The beach promenade includes some really nice restaurants, sport activities, bars and live music acts. Everything we made was a new adventure... seeing Flipper, watching football and baseball live or a trip to disney world, orlando.
All in all we can say that this were the best vacations we ever had. Thank you.

This (fully furnished) apartment style rental was just like home (if not nicer. I don't get fresh towels at home everyday....except on Sunday service ;-) Debbie/GM was SO hospitable. Its got all the conveniences (microwave, oven, pots & pans...full kitchenette.). Walk outside and you are 20ft from sand & beach; a less than quarter mile from restaurants & shops. If you don't like sea water the pool is right next to the office. I AM DEFINANTLY COMING BACK HERE....THANKS DEBBIE :-)

Room Tip: If possible ask for an upstairs unit.

We stayed here for almost a week in a one bedroom unit. It was the perfect setting for our vacation. The Bougainvillea was so quiet and peaceful. Steps to the beautiful beach and fun Broadwalk. It was nice to have the kitchen as an option for meals. We enjoyed using the outdoor grill and patio for most meals. The most amazing part was how quiet it was. At times it was like having our own personal beach and pool. Everything was very clean and well maintained. The staff were very nice and extremely helpful. We are already thinking of returning next year!

My family, including myself, husband and our preschool aged daughter, stayed in the Bougainvillea for a week mid July. We stayed in the 1 bedroom apt. with a futon and absolutely loved it. The property itself was very clean and quiet. It was nice not having people running around all hours of the night or out in the pool screaming like you often hear in a hotel. The staff was all very friendly and helpful. We like to stay in nice places, but also don't like to pay lots of money for amenities we will not be using. The property looks like it has been updated recently and is very nice. Some of the other places around the Broadwalk were more expensive and charged for everything from internet service to parking while being more expensive and where not right off the beach. The best part is you are less than a block from the bleach. We absolutely loved our stay and will visit again!

I pray the landlords maintain their fine standard of keeping unmanageable children, noisy boorish guests, and other general riff-raff away from this place because everything else about it: service, cleanliness, parking, location, is perfect.

Please, if you think the world revolves around yourself and you have the right to be idiots, don't come here, you'll ruin it for the rest of us.
