I recently stayed at Bougainvillea, and by far, the best, no hassle, laid back, beautiful place I have stayed. Claudia set me up in the office as a walk in, I wandered in after looking at a not so great place up the road. I stayed for three wonderful weeks on the beach. They put me in a room with a wired ethernet connection so I could set up my own WiFi, changed towels everyday, took out the trash. The staff is smiling and friendly, good international client base, made a few friends along the way. When you step out the back gate of the beautiful yard, the Hollywood Beach Boardwalk is 10 steps away, unless you stay at the Seadowns, their next door property, which is ON the boardwalk. Barbeque grills are kept in great shape, filled with gas. One of the things I thought was neat, was when guests leave beach chairs and umbrellas, instead of throwing them out, they save them, and have them in a location available to other guests. Waste not want not. I left a chair o donate to the program, hopefully someone gets the use out of it as we did others. I have to travel to the area for work often enough, and I will be staying here again, even if I have to pay the season rates, it's just too great a place, location, fantastic staff and owners to pass up for anything else. For the location, it's 5 minutes walk down the boardwalk to the excitement but just up the way enough to be quite. I managed to ride my bike most days down one end to the Dania Beach Pier and back to the other end of the board walk for about 12 miles each day. It was relaxing and a productive place to be. Thank you Claudia and her staff for everything! See y'all next time!
