HISTORIC BEACH HOME, 5 MINUTES TO BEACH - CHARMING PRICE TOO!

Delray Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-7)

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 feel free to take our 2 beach-cruisers (bicycles). It’s exactly 8 blocks away, 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, dog-friendly beach at Atlantic Dunes Park (We actually prefer the latter!).

Our charming, immaculate house is 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, DVDs 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!

About The Owner

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!

The Owner purchased this house in 2008

Why The Owner chose Delray Beach

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.

What makes this house unique

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!

We really enjoyed this home!

  • 4 of 5
Very comfortable, clean, and classy. This house was easy to live in, and the kitchen and bathrooms are really lovely. We also enjoyed sitting out in the back yard every morning; there's an almost jungle-like collection of palms and plants along the back fence. The owners were very accommodating and made the experience quite pleasant.

Comfortable cottage, minutes drive to beach, restaurants, and shopping

  • 5 of 5
From initial contact to the prompt return of our deposit after our week-long stay at this comfortable Delray Beach cottage, all communications with Jeff regarding arrangements was timely and clear. The description of the house and photos on the webpage, along with the clear written instructions he provided, ensured that there were no surprises during our stay.
The large and well-equipped kitchen allowed us to prepare a wonderful Christmas dinner, turkey and all, for our family. We also appreciated the washer/dryer on the back patio, high speed internet, comfortable beds. The location, an easy five-minute drive to a wonderful beach, downtown restaurants, and grocery stores, was very convenient. We also liked the fact that the house is in an authentic Florida family neighborhood rather than a gated, 55+ community. We highly recommend this property to others!

Key West Style in Downtown Delray Beach near Atlantic Ave

  • 5 of 5
We rented this home for a month in Nov. 2013 and had a great time! The house was in great condition and had everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable. It was obvious the owners take pride in this home and seemed to think of everything we may need during our stay. The location was very convenient to downtown Atlantic Ave (walking distance) and also a short bike ride to Delray Beach. I would highly recommend this home if you are considering a stay in Delray. The check-in / check-out process was easy and the owners were great to work with. Also the security deposit was returned promptly. I look forward to another stay here in the future!!

Memorable stay over the New Year in this fantastic "Key West" styled vacation home.

Having stayed multiple times in Delray Beach (nothing like it) we were pleased to find this well located authentic well outfitted cottage. Adorable inside as outside it is well appointed yet comfortable and relaxed. The owners having taken extra steps to ensure that you know you are on vacation in the details that are well thought out - we arrived to fresh flowers and a key- lime pie!

Our group included myself, my husband and our 3 daughters - 20,20 and 21. Our daughters walked everywhere and were completely happy and felt safe and secure despite not having a car to drive.

We enjoyed the thoughtfulness of bikes and were able to use these daily as we explored the town. The location was great - able to walk to everything. Downtown is about a 12 minute walk as is movie theatres, grocery stores, chain restaurants and the beach. Delray itself is charming, artsy and some-what retro in style and there is easy access to highways that will quicly take you to southeast Florida's major attractions.

Adjacent communities such as Boca Raton and Boynton Beach extend choices even further for shopping and dining and are single digit minutes away.

The revervation and payment process was very efficient and easy and the owners are very responsive, organized and helpful.

The only regret was not being able to stay longer!
