As fans of David Cassidy celebrate his 68th birthday April 12, well-heeled lovers of 1970s kitsch can now spend nights at the mansion near the beach in Fort Lauderdale that the singer and star of The Partridge Family called home for nearly 15 years.
Cassidy’s old house at 1600 South Ocean Drive near Port Everglades has found a second life as a luxury rental.
The two Maryland investors who bought the house in a 2015 auction designed to keep Cassidy’s creditors at bay when he filed for bankruptcy are renting it out for rates starting at $1,500 a night.
“It’s more than just a rental,” said co-owner Thomas White. “We wanted something with Ritz-Carlton quality. It’s the best sheets, the best kitchen, the best of everything and a lot of David Cassidy memorabilia.”
Cassidy, who played Keith Partridge in the iconic 1970s sitcom and is known for chart-toppers like I Think I Love You, died in November after battling alcoholism and dementia.
But his legacy, said White, lives on in the house, re-christened Casa de Mayan.
