Carlos and Marietta Alvarez met in Delray Beach thirty two years ago while Marietta was on vacation from her home in New York. They fell in love and the rest is history……
Thirty years ago we married, moved to Jupiter and raised our five children right here in Jupiter Farms, just a couple of blocks from this very house. We now have four grandchildren, with number five on the way.
We are semi-retired now and this vacation home, Shadey Acres, is our retirement dream. We love this area; it feels so rural but has so much to offer. Carlos and I bike to Riverbend Park from our home frequently. The neighborhood is safe and very beautiful.
Having a large family ourselves, we often rent Vacation Homes when we travel. Using those experiences we took the best of what we learned from those other homes and tried to incorporate it into Shadey Acres. We have tried to anticipate all of your needs and hope that you enjoy your stay with us.
We hope you find Shadey Acres inviting and comfortable. Please let us know if you need anything at all.
Marietta purchased this house in 2013
Why this property?
The reason we believe you will love it here is because this house is our vision of a perfect vacation home.
Shadey Acres has 3 king size beds, 2 twin beds, a queen sleeper sofa and a super comfortable full futon, and enough living and dining room for everyone to find a comfortable place to sit and relax.
We have gorgeous landscaping and a luxurious pool and spa that are very private.
We even have a horse barn to accommodate our guest’s horse(s).
The yard is big and great for playing games like family football or soccer, or maybe a little B-ball or Horseshoes and is completely fenced in so its pet friendly.
The location is wonderful; we are minutes away from the beach, Riverbend Park and Northeast Everglades Natural Area (NENA) -the Historic Jupiter Indiantown Trail, Roger Dean Baseball Stadium and lots of fantastic shopping, restaurants, entertainment, Rapids Water Park and other fun attractions that are all within minutes of Shadey Acres.
Jupiter Farms has always been a great place to live and now the area and cities around it have really grown up into a perfect spot for a vacation.
The neighborhood is a safe place and with minimum of 1.25 acre lots, there is lots of space between neighbors, affording our guests and their pet’s privacy. Shadey Acres sits on 2.7 acres that has a manicured yard as well as wild areas for the real taste of the old Florida.
We love this home and location and hope you and your family and friends will too!
Things that made us fall in love with the house were the fully screened heated pool with heated bubbling water fall spa. Having the full screen means you can sit out comfortably in the evening, without having all the local insect wildlife for company!
The four stall barn with air conditioned tack room and separate feed room was a wonderful addition. We weren't looking for a barn but it was wonderful to find property that has one that is so nice. It's great that each stall has its own walk out.
We found the carved stone Shadey A's as you enter the property charming and named the home after it.
The fact that the property is so close to the back door bike entrance to Riverbend Park and the NENA trails was a plus because we know how much we enjoy riding the trails of the park.
The location is very easy to find for Out-of-Towners was a plus as well. Basically you just get on Indiantown Road West from either the I95 or Florida Turnpike, continue West about 4.5 miles to Haynie Lane, (just past the Beacon Church) make a left, go another 2 miles (just past the Randolf Siding 4-way stop), make first left on 159th Ct. N., (dirt road), and Shadey Acres is the second mail box on the right. Simple, simple!
It’s also that easy to get to the beach, just out to Indiantown Road and take it East about 11 miles, it dead ends on A1A (the beach road), make a right and you are there! (And there are plenty of great restaurants and shopping along the way!)
Kat, Colin, Alice, Barbara and Terry, family and friends,
Thank you all so much for taking such good care of our Shadey Acres. As Carlos and I perused the Guest Comment books, we were very happy to read all your comments and here I have posted some of them.
From the Families from Westminster, MD and Gettysburg, PA. : “The home itself with the beautiful setting and all the luxurious amenities became a central part of a most enjoyable vacation and Mother’s Day celebration! God Bless you both for caring so much to provide your guests with the very best!”
- - - Comments like these do make us feel so happy and blessed!
It brought special warmth to our hearts to read Terry’s comments, “True Southern Hospitality! Welcome Basket came in handy, (Lizard) Porch perfect for quiet prayer…. It has been a perfect 89th Mother’s Day! In my opinion - a perfect vacation spot!” - - - So glad you had a Happy 89th Mother’s Day Terry and that you came to spend it at Shadey Acres.
And from Kat – “I loved how things are labeled with instructions since it makes everything so much easier. The décor is lovely as well a comfortable. I think we spent most of our time around the pool, in the pool or spa. We also loved the Lizard Porch. Mom said that was her favorite place.” - - - We are so glad all the labeling and instructions came to good use; we always like to know how things work when I get to a place too!
With warm regards,
Carlos and Marietta Alvarez
