The Sunshine is a small, cosy, quiet motel, just 100 yards from the ocean and a six mile white sandy beach. The Sunshine has just six units. These include 4 efficiency studio units with complete kitchens, 1 one bedroom apartment, and 1 room with a mini kitchen. The Sunshine was built in the '50's, and includes such features as refinished terrazzo floors and original 50's tiled bathrooms. The rooms have been completely renovated in the last couple of years. All rooms have WIFI, air conditioning, ceiling fans, cable TV and parking. The one bedroom unit and three studios have queen beds. One studio has two double beds and the room one double bed. All have quality fold-out sleeper love seats. The central patio is a good place to catch some sun, barbeque and hang out with friends.
The neighborhood, Hollywood North Beach, is small, lo-rise and quiet, with seven one block streets, each of which extends from the ocean to A1A and the Intracoastal Waterway. To the south, Hollywood North Beach Park extends for nearly a mile before becoming Hollywood Central Beach, with its shops and restaurants. To the west, across the Intracoastal Waterway, is Westlake Park, a 1500 acre sanctuary of mangroves and tidal estuary. To the north is Dania Public Beach followed by John U. Lloyd State Park with four miles of natural beach. The one-way, one-lane road along the beach is an excellent bike path which extends all the way south through Hollywood North Beach Park and Hollywood Central Beach. This neighborhood is VERY quiet. If you are looking for lots of action, don't come here; you should be checking out the area around Hollywood Central Beach.
Hollywood North Beach is five miles and a fifteen dollar taxi ride from Ft Lauderdale International Airport. Ft Lauderdale offers a huge selection of restaurants, shops and glitzy nightlife. Broward County and Miami-Dade, twenty miles to the south, offer a broad selection of tourist attractions. Everglades National Park is a huge, wilderness swamp with canoeing and camping readily available.
The Sunshine Motel rates are competitive. It's hard to tell, as there is an amazing network of motel spies which phone around regularly to check each other's prices, but I believe the Sunshine rates are as low as any on the beach. Please phone 954 923-2050 for availability and prices.
