GIMME SHELTER...FOR THE BUDGET-CONSCIOUS VACATIONER

Delray Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6-9)

This property presents an opportunity for flexible travelers to realize significant savings in lodging while enjoying clean, comfortable, fully-equipped accommodations near the heart of all activities. The architect Owner resides on site in a cottage behind the featured house.

Technically, a car isn’t necessary although most vacationers will want one. Just steps away is a FREE jitney that runs the length of Atlantic Avenue to the Beach at one end and to the local TriRail station at the other, with connections to all airports and all points from Palm Beach to Miami.

The Beach is a five minute drive from the house. Atlantic Avenue, one of the most popular nighttime destinations in South Florida with its concentration of open-air restaurants, clubs, art galleries and shops, is a pleasant, few minutes walk away. If your vacation plans call for getting out to enjoy the weather, the beach, the sunshine and all that Florida has to offer, and you want to be close to these activities, this may be the house for you.

For tennis enthusiasts, the Delray Beach Tennis Center is a three minute walk from the house. Host to professional ATP tour events, the center boasts an impressive stadium court plus fourteen clay and six hard courts. With plenty of active members and guests, one can almost always find a game here.

The house stands alone in a commercial district at the boundary of Delray Beach’s successful community redevelopment efforts. Surrounded by open, cleared spaces, the house sits across the street from the city’s new fire-rescue station (amazingly quiet as the trucks exit on the far side, so the sirens are never heard).

You have many options for lodging during your stay in South Florida. This one offers comfortable, clean accommodations, near the center of activity, at a very reasonable price.

About The Owner

The Owner resides on-site in a cottage behind the featured house. An avid tennis player and swimmer, he enjoys being two minutes away from the Delray Beach Tennis Center and close to the ocean beaches.

Why The Owner chose Delray Beach

The architect Owner purchased this property with the intention of participating in the plans of the Delray Beach Community Redevelopment Authority to re-gentrify this city block. As often happens in these projects, unforeseen issues caused a delay and the project was placed temporarily on hold. Attracted by the central location, the Owner took this opportunity to refurbish the cottage for his own use and outfit the main house for offer to the practical vacationer: a fully-equipped, clean, comfortable, attractively-priced rental close to the center of a beautiful, vibrant community and just a few minutes drive from the beach.

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for a friends wedding and loved it. The house was very clean and the owner was very welcoming. The house is within walking distance of downtown Delray and the public transportation is very reliable. I would recommend this home for anyone looking for a quiet get away.

Perfect Stay in Delray!

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed the three bedroom house the week between Christmas and New Years. We visited with our two teenagers and were comfortable in the well designed space. The full kitchen allowed us to prepare breakfast each morning and sit outside to enjoy the cool breeze. The listing photos displayed the site exactly as we found it and it was very clean and well maintained. We daily appreciated the comfy beds and great hot showers, often missed when away from home.

We went into the town of Delray for shopping, meals, music, and people watching either by car or on foot. It's only a 10 minute walk, how wonderful. While our beach days weren't hot and sunny it was there to simply relax or take a perfect walk. And when we wanted to explore the surrounding area, the owner, Don, was there to share his favorite spots and gave us some great ideas and directions as well. He was always so helpful and welcoming.

We will recommend the vacation home to our friends and family. We plan to return!

Nightlife, restaurants, shopping and beach - walk to it all

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I planned a trip for spring training, but locating a pet friendly spot can be a challenge. We initially chose this location because the owner allows pets and it is conveniently located just off 95 and a short drive to Jupiter. What we found is one of South Florida's hidden gems...Delray Beach. Just a 5 minute walk down Atlantic Avenue from this property you will find restaurants, nightlife, shopping, cafes and so much more. The city's town square is right in the middle of everything and they plan activities for the community, host farmers markets, flea market, free concerts and other community based activities. They do a great job of making the tourist feel welcome and part of their community.

The street scene is lively, the restaurants are upscale and they all have sidewalk seating. For me, one of the most refreshing elements is the fact that there are almost no big chain establishments. That says a lot about the community.

The property is clean, very well maintained, comfortable and a short walk to everything. We have stayed here twice and will return again. The property owner is friendly, helpful and very accommodating. The home has 3 bedrooms, so families would be very comfortable, but it's also a perfect romantic getaway spot for two!

Our Stay in Gimme Shelter

  • 5 of 5
Our family stayed in this rental home for a week and were very happy with it. Although the fire department is close, I actually don't recall hearing any sirens. The location is great - close to all the great shops and restaurants in Delray (as well as the beach, of course). The size of the house was more than adequate for our family of four...and having a full kitchen and separate dining room was a big plus. We would definitely stay here again and have recommended it to our friends.

A very pleasant stay

  • 5 of 5
Both the description and the photos very accurately portray just what you will find upon checking in, My wife and sister found the property to be very clean and well maintained. They were very pleased with how well the kitchen was equiped. Don, the owner was pleasant and helpful to us and made us feel right at home. We would have no problem recommending this place to our friends and family. Alomg with our frequent trips to the beach, we especially enjoyed visiting the Morikami Japanese Gardens. We give Don and Gimme Shelter three thumbs up.
