About The Owner

I was originally from southern California and fell in love with south Florida which I made my home for years. I purchased the Young Mansion and did an extensive five year renovation to return the house to its former glory. Living in the Young Mansion was a one of a kind experience, you felt like you were living in a Andalusian or Tuscan villa.

The Owner purchased this estate in 2002

Why The Owner chose North Lake

This house has it all. It is close to the beach and it is a Spanish/Moorish architectural masterpiece. We fell in love with it the first time we saw it. The place is so sophisticated it really gives you the experience of living in another era.

What makes this estate unique

Huge pool, formal gardens, hardwood floors and cuban tile throughout the house. House was built with a unique craftsmanship that would be incredibly difficult to duplicate today. Insurance companies valued the replacement cost to reproduce a house of this magnitude to be valued at 5 million dollars because of the home's intricate details. The place is a destination unto itself and staying here is a total experience.

An amazing and beautiful property dated 1929 and many original architectural details.

  • 4 of 5

Our annual family reunion during the week of 8/6 was one of the best out of 13 so far, all due to this amazing home. There were 17 of us all sleeping comfortably with the aid of a few air mattresses on fold out couches. The kitchen was so roomy as to allow three to work on making meals without collision. Huge refrigerator and a gas stove/oven. Plenty of dishes and containers to support the clan. A massive wood table with 8 chairs but we managed to add several other chairs to seat 17. We spent time playing cards and celebrating my father's 90th birthday. Kudos to the house management who responded quickly to our requests. We needed the stair hand rail secured among a few other minor needs. Our only concerns were the traffic noise in the bedroom street side. This is only because the windows are original frames, and hardware. All the other bedrooms were reasonably quiet. This is a fine home for reunions but also perfect for murder mystery dinner games. Dark wood, metal work, thick drapery and stonework. We'd return should my father want to try for #14.

Beautiful spacious property with lots of character and charm

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at the Young Mansion and I would highly recommend to anyone thinking of staying in the area. I had booked the property to celebrate my husbands 40th birthday with a suprise family reunion - the house was spacious and comfortable for the 20 of us with a beautiful pool and garden area to relax by during the day. Although the kitchen was very well equipped we purchased a couple of other items during our stay to cater for the specific requirements of our group - Richard was so accommodating and purchased these items from us at the end of our stay (something that he did not need to do but was much appreciated as could not be taken with us). Thank you Richard for sharing your beautiful house!

A little old and outdated but very spacious and great pool

  • 3 of 5

The house is a little old and outdated but it's a historic marker of the owners who founded Hollywood Florida. The air conditioner didn't work that well in the bedrooms on the left side of the house. The backdoor going from the house to the courtyard to get to the pool locks so when you go out it locks you out. There is only cable in the living room but have Ruko (it's like Apple TV) in the other rooms. All the rooms had a TV. The pool and pool area is really really nice and clean. Very spacious to entertain. We had an issue with one of the toilets but the house manager responded immediately. Overall it would be like a 3 star resort.

Owner's Response: We appreciate all guest for is supports a cause which is historic preservation. The Young Mansion houses museum quality antiques and gives guests a unique perspective of another time and place. I am sorry you had some issues with the back AC unit and the back door. We have been operating as a vacation rental since 2008 and have rented to hundreds of groups. We strive to make every guest stay as perfect as possible and will address both of those issues.

Great family stay

  • 5 of 5

This was a 20 person family stay, Plenty of room for everyone, everyone was impressed with the whole estate, all took many photos and promptly posted everything on Facebook. Easy to talk to owner or caretaker. no issues, owner returned deposit right away. Courtyard and pool used everyday. This is an older mansion but that is part of the charm. Most important review was my family all say this pick was a HOME-RUN!!!

Beautiful, accommodating, spacious, elegant mansion

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Young Mansion was PERFECT! The grounds were beautiful and the house was very spacious. We rented this property for our college spring break trip. We had 26 people stay in the house and there was plenty of room for everyone. The courtyard and pool were great for hanging out at any point during the day. We ate dinner outside every night and it was wonderful! The home was only a 10-15 minute walk to the beach, which has a really cool boardwalk area. Hollywood itself was a great place to visit. In addition to the intercostal waterways and the boardwalk, there are some cool nature centers and parks surrounding the home, which are great for kayaking, paddle boarding, exploring or playing tennis. I could not have asked for a better stay in a true mansion!

Family Getaway

  • 4 of 5

Fantastic property for a family vacation. The house was wonderful & the outside grounds made the property special. It was like having your own private compound. We had 13 people and never felt crowded, very easy to get lost or find a private area. So often you rent a large house and the kitchen doesn't measure up, the kitchen- dining area were fantastic, we ate in every night & had a blast. It will be very difficult to find another property to live up to this for a large group. If I had to find a negative, it would be if your group is composed of all adults, some may feel that some of the bedrooms come up short.

We had no issues with the rental, but if we had, I'm sure that the owner would have resolved them immediately.

Would go back in a heartbeat, especially if I can have master suite!
