Art History

The South Florida Vrbo is sure to delight art lovers | Pro Club Bd

You don’t have to be an art historian to appreciate this masterpiece. Located in one of the most desirable neighborhoods in South Florida, this art-filled vacation home is a sight to behold. Each room is decorated with a theme dedicated to a famous artist.

Dubbed Arthouse 851, this five bedroom, three and a half bath Vrbo is a beautiful place to celebrate special occasions. The villa is perfect for bridal and baby showers, family reunions, birthdays and more. Or just relax and soak up the Florida sun in this state-of-the-art villa.

Arthouse 851 has decor adjoining the art…literally. With wall-to-wall artwork, it’s almost like sleeping in a museum! Let’s take a tour, shall we?

Excellent central location

Nestled among Art Deco and Mediterranean Revival homes in the heart of upscale Hollywood Lakes, Arthouse 851 is located in Hollywood, Florida, just 10 minutes south of Fort Lauderdale and less than half an hour from Miami. In fact, this vacation rental is less than five miles from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport.

This great corner lot is within walking distance to several attractions including the coastal mangrove wetlands of the Anne Kolb Nature Center which is only about 1 mile away. Beautiful parks as well as a public golf course, boat launch and marina are also nearby. One of the best beaches and boardwalks in the Sunshine State is just a 16 minute walk away.

Hollywood Beach is home to white sand and gorgeous views. Bike, skate or stroll down the promenade, which is dotted with bars and restaurants, shops, live music and other entertainment. Seafood restaurants with sunset views can be found along the Stranahan River. Of course, downtown Hollywood has shopping, dining, festivals and more all in close proximity.

From the outside, Arthouse 851 looks like an ordinary residence in a South Florida suburb. But as we know at Zillow Gone Wild, looks can be deceiving. Here’s a look inside the house.

Leaving the fine art indoors, we head out onto the patio, which features a hot tub, ivy-covered wall and BBQ, where you can master the art of cooking. (Okay, I promise that’s the ultimate artistic pun!) There’s also an upstairs balcony at the front of the house.

Sit back and relax in these beautiful luxurious lounge chairs. LED lights on the walls create atmosphere at night. This place is pet friendly, but the hosts would probably prefer it if you stopped Fido from relieving himself on the artificial grass yard.
