“Piece of paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

Thanks to the reviews on Tripadvisor we selected Marine Villas and we could not be more satisfied. We have found our new home away from home. Diane Struyf greeted us and led us to our room - which is like an apt/condo with everything you could need. We had a first floor room and could see the ocean from out our window and our door. The place was spotless and quiet - which is exactly what we were looking for in a place to stay. We wanted no kids or rowdy parties and we're tired of the regular old hotel/"brand name" fancy places. It also came with a parking space which was GREAT! The beach is just steps away from your door. There is no housekeeping knocking on your door or doors slamming at all hours. Diane also recommended several places to eat and things to do.The area seemed very safe. It was great leaving the windows open at night to hear the breeze and ocean. Bed and pillows/blanket were super comfy.I would love one of those seashell blankets for my home! It was the most relaxing vacation we have ever experienced and very much needed. I can't wait to go back. We will not stay anywhere else! It should be #1 on the list! Thanks for a great stay Diane!

Room Tip: All rooms face the beach/ocean.

Diane Struyf, the owner, gave us more personal service than anywhere I have stayed from places all over the world. She cares and it shows in the whole wonderful experience. The property is right behind the boardwalk so you are only about 100 feet from the beach sand.

We stayed at Marine Villas for 10 days in January, 2013. The accommodations are very clean and well maintained, steps away from the beach and many fine restaurants on the broadwalk.

Marine Villas gives you a taste of the charm of old Florida, with the convenience of being close to many fine South Florida attractions. After a day of shopping, sightseeing or activity, its great to come back to a quaint, quiet and comfortable apartment by the beach.

The hosts keep a very nice establishment, are very accommodating, and their pride of ownership shines through in this understated jewel.

I very much recommend the Marine Villas for your next stay in Hollywood. I will be returning to Room 5 next time I'm in Florida, to enjoy the sea breeze coming in off of the ocean at night, and the beautiful beach during the day.

Thank you for your hospitality.

We really enjoyed our stay. I was so impressed with the cleanliness of the villa and comfort of the bed. Definitely would recommend Marine Villas to my friends and family. The view and location to the beach was wonderful and convenient to restaurants. The staff delightful.

The location of this property is ideal; so close to the beach and restaurants. The studio unit was newer looking and very clean. It was a comfortable place and Diane, the owner, was friendly and very helpful. My stay was a good one. I would come back again to this wonderful get away property.

There is just no other place to stay but here anytime you visit south fl, this is the perfect place for peace and quiet and so close to the beach! It is spotlessly cleaned everytime someone checks out. I personally witnessed the owner Diane get down on her hands and knees and scrub the floors! Wow I bet you never would see that in a hotel anywhere. Besides that everyone working there is so kind to help and offer advise on good places sightsee and great places to eat!! Many within walking distance. I won't stay anywhere else when in south fl ever!!

Room Tip: all the rooms look east onto the beach , top floor is the best view, the one bedrooms are very comfo...
