Located along the Atlantic Ocean on Florida’s Gold Coast between Ft. Lauderdale and Boca Raton, this villa is situated in the exclusive residential community of Hillsboro Beach (Hillsboro). Hillsboro is home to grand estates, upscale private condominiums, and a select few condominium resorts.
This villa is one of forty detached units on a 7.5 acre condominium association property, which is run as a resort. A management office and staff are provided on-site to address guests' needs, Mon-Sat 9-5pm.
Hillsboro’s landmass is a rare Florida coastal treasure, demarcated by a 3-mile narrow peninsula separating the ocean from the Intracoastal Waterway.
Best known for its magnificent estate properties that straddle both sides of its one public road -- Hillsboro Mile (A1A), known locally as “Millionaires’ Mile” -- inhabitants of Hillsboro enjoy the distinctly different features of BOTH the Atlantic Ocean and Florida’s Intracoastal Waterway.
SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE
Each villa guest has their unique set of interests. That said, experience tells us...
MOST OF OUR GUESTS ON MOST DAYS…spend most of their vacation time on the resort property; spend some time walking or biking N or S to nearby interesting and scenic destinations; and travel a few minutes by car to nearby communities for shopping, dining and entertainment.
GUESTS’ USE OF ON-PROPERTY AMENITIES include... lounging in a cabana on the association’s private beach (cabanas available Nov-Apr); walking barefoot on the beach along the ocean; lounging at and cooling in the association’s freshwater heated pool; and gathering and socializing along the Intracoastal Waterway, most often at sunset boat-watching watercrafts ranging from multi-million-dollar yachts to one-man kayaks.
Villa guests occasionally will be seen fishing from the shorelines of the ocean and Intracoastal Waterway. Snapper, snook, mackerel, pompano and tarpon are common catches.
Barbecue grill and picnic tables are provided at both the private beach and along the Intracoastal for use by villa guests.
WALKING NORTH TO TOWN
Guests often venture north from the villa for a 10-15 minute-walk along sidewalks adjacent the ocean leading to Deerfield Beach (Deerfield). Deerfield is a classic Florida beach town with a fishing pier, well-maintained public beach, beachside gathering-park, and a variety of restaurants and specialty shops.
Venturing south from the villa offers an entirely different experience.
For an up-close ocean experience and an ocean-front view of the grand estate homes and other condominiums, guests can walk south along the ocean beach for nearly 3 miles.
For a street-view of Hillsboro’s grand estates, upscale condominiums, boathouses and docked yachts, guests walk or bike for nearly 3 miles in a defined lane along Hillsboro Mile.
SOUTH FLORIDA’S WORLD-CLASS AMENITIES
Most of our villa guests will experience at least a few of South Florida’s extraordinary destinations, activities, attractions and events. COMMON PURSUITS include: deep sea fishing, boating, ski doos, golf & tennis, live-entertainment, waterside restaurants, Intracoastal Waterway day-cruises, wind surfing, reef snorkeling & scuba diving, various theme parks, South Beach, jai-alai, and professional or college sporting events. The options are virtually endless.
An assortment of pamphlets is available in the association’s on-property management office.
POPULAR DESTINATION CITIES
Destinations NORTH of Hillsboro include Deerfield (.8 miles) Boca Raton (3 miles), and Delray Beach (13 miles).
Destinations SOUTH of Hillsboro include Fort Lauderdale (14 miles) and Miami’s South Beach (48 miles).
ABOUT A CAR
A unique feature of this villa is its dedicated parking spot a few steps from its back door. While most of our guests choose to have a car available for the duration of their stay, an emerging trend we see is guests renting cars ONLY for select days during their stay, particularly long-stay guests.
Some rental car companies have nearby rental office locations which enable them to provide drop-off and pickup service for no additional charge (i.e., Enterprise Rental Car, Boca Raton).
Bike riders will be interested to know that traveling north on Hillsboro Mile to Deerfield Beach, Boca Raton, Highland Beach, Delray Beach and Boynton Beach, covers nearly 20 miles each way. This stretch of A1A is one of the most popular and scenic biking routes in Florida.
Bike rentals are available in Deerfield. Guests typically store their bikes on the villa porch. Speaking of which...
THE VILLA PORCH
This villa has an attached, landscape-secluded covered private porch, providing yet another on-property option for guests' gathering, relaxing, and dining. A few of our guests spend more time on this porch than they do inside the villa!
