Welcome to our classic Florida beach home, located less than 5 minutes from two of Delray’s best beaches. Beachy, fun, Key West furnishings inside, original hardwood floors throughout. Three bedrooms and two completely updated bathrooms, along with a brand new granite and stainless-steel kitchen.
Spend your days at the beach and your afternoons on our covered back porch, under the ceiling fans, sipping something cool. Fenced-in backyard with shaded and sunny seating, plus a dining area for entertaining outside. We’ve got a BBQ and even a chiminea (fire-pit) to boot.
In the evenings, you can easily walk to Atlantic Avenue’s many restaurants and shops, or better yet, do as the locals do and call up Delray's Downtowner shuttle (a free local golf cart shuttle - just one of the tips in our Locals' Guide you'll read about later!) and let them take you where you want to go! Either way, Atlantic Avenue is exactly 8 blocks, about a 10-minute walk. The home is 2 blocks from the Intracoastal Waterway, and it’s just a 5 minute drive to both the “main” beach at Atlantic Ave. and the quieter, more natural beach at Atlantic Dunes Park (We actually prefer the latter!).
Our charming, immaculate house has been our home during the off-season, and we are sure that couples and families alike will find our location, accommodations, and rates ideal! When you arrive, check out our 'Locals' Guide' we've made to give our guests info and directions for the best food, fun, and sun! Beach games, board games, and tons of books already there, you just bring the sunscreen!
There is also a wonderful waterpark 30 minutes north for family fun (The Rapids, West Palm Beach). Don't forget about historic Palm Beach Island, where the rich and famous play, and of course do their shopping on Worth Ave. (About 20 minutes N of our home on A1A.)
3 hours to Disney/Universal Studios theme parks
45 minutes to Miami
30 minutes to Ft. Lauderdale International Airport (FLL)
25 minutes from Palm Beach International Airport (PBI)
We hope you'll stay with us sometime soon!

P.S. - Key lime pie for everyone! (You'll see......) :-)

Kelly and I have lived in Delray since 2008, although Kelly is practically a Florida native, having lived near here since she was 12. I'm originally from Alexandria, VA, but I fell in love with the ocean (and of course, Kelly!) and decided to stay for good!
We both travel a lot for work and pleasure, and have found that renting out our home is a win-win for ourselves and our lovely guests! We've had great luck with VRBO and have made some good friends with those who've rented here -- we hope to meet more wonderful people like you!
Jeff + Kelly Yates purchased this house in 2008
We love Delray!!! Of all the beach towns in South Florida, we chose this one not only as our vacation spot, but also as our permanent residence when we're not traveling for work and play. Delray has a great combination of beautiful beaches as well as shopping and restaurants/nightlife on Atlantic Ave.! It's becoming a bigger tourist destination every year, but it still has its local charm and cuteness.
If you check out our map, you can see we're right in the middle of everything there is to do in Delray!
Our ideal day when we're staying at our Delray property: Wake-up at 9 or so and spend the morning surfing or sunbathing at the beach. Shower off, grab a quick breakfast on Atlantic Ave (Crepes place is the best!). To cool off, we like to read for an hour or so at the many coffee shops on Atlantic or at the bookstore in the nearby shopping center. After a nap, it's off to dinner on the 'Ave' -- our favorite place the The Office - killer gourmet burgers!
7 girls went to Delray and stayed in this amazing home for a girls weekend trip! The house was perfect, in a great location,and very welcoming! Close to the beach and Atlantic Avenue. The owners we so helpful in suggestions of places to go and house accommodations! We didn't find very many bath towels to use, until our last day and I think someone accidentally left them in the dryer before we got there.....that was our only complaint, otherwise, we loved everything about the house! Would recommend this as an amazing place to stay for anyone!
Nice house, enjoyed our stay. Owner was kind enough to help us get our luggage that we left behind.
Four of us stayed for a week in March, 2015 and really enjoyed the house. First of all, the front of the house is very welcoming and nicely landscaped. We really enjoyed pulling into the driveway every time. And every picture we took of any combination of us standing on the front steps was met with comments from snow bound New England friends and family like "oh how cute," "looks like Key West, " " adorable," "take me there," and "yes, I would love it if you would freshen my margarita." Okay, that last one was mine! Anyway, we loved the place and the high ceilings, the paint scheme, updated bathrooms, key lime pie (nice touch), washer-dryer, short drives to anything and everything, C.E.O. burgers at the Office Restaurant (excellent), unbroken string of 85 degree sunny days, fine beaches, and lots of great memories. Owners were also very nice and helpful.
Beautiful home, all the comforts you could want. Owners are super nice. Close to downtown. We enjoyed the Farmers Market, Saturday morning bought some fish and cooked it in the backyard that evening. Took son and his girlfriend (college students) and it was perfect for us. A do again for sure!
The house is lovely it was perfect for us. Kelly and Jeff were very helpful. The house is well kept and very clean.It is in need of more chairs and a railing for the back stairs to the yard.
A lovely home with everything we needed, close to great restaurants, the beach and fun downtown Delray. Enjoyed relaxing in the private backyard. Owner's were great and very helpful. Charmed and looking forward to a future stay.
