A wide variety of shops for your daily needs are just around the corner and a few minutes’ walk. Step in the car and you are only a few minutes away from miles of resort style beaches and even closer to two vibrant, downtown centers – Mizner Park and Royal Palm Place - that offer dozens of shops, outdoor cafes, restaurants, amazing entertainment and the Museum of Art, one of South Florida's finest cultural attractions. Don't want to drive ? ... take a leisurely, 15 to 20 minute stroll downtown or walk to the beach.

This Villa has an open floor plan that combines living, dining and a well equipped modern, custom kitchen, with Silestone counter tops, stainless steel appliances and a breakfast bar, that segues to a covered lanai, for easy living, entertainment (large, flat-screen TV) and great flow of communication. The dining area offers seating for 8 and, for the little one, a high chair can be provided. This nicely furnished space opens up to a covered patio that overlooks an expansive pool area bordered by a private, tropical garden that ensures privacy. Rain or shine - this lanai is great for ‘hanging out’ with the family, relaxing with a book, web-surfing, ‘alfresco dining’ or … maybe for your outdoor cookout on the BBQ?
Just relax and take it easy ... or take a dive into the refreshing, sparkling, private 15’x30’ swimming pool. You will love it. The wide deck has lounge chairs for sunbathing, with an umbrella for those that prefer the shade … wouldn’t this be is a great time to have that Margarita? … Hey, it's 5:00 O'clock somewhere in the world!

The house has been in our family since 1955. My parents, from the Northeast and Midwest of America, traveled a great deal in their music and acting careers. They sought a warm, balmy climate in a pleasant town that was near Palm Beach and Miami.
I grew up in Boca Raton but later left and spent a great deal of my adult life overseas, in Europe. My wife is German and always wanted to move to the US. After a few decades of career work – consulting and marketing – that allowed us to visit many of Europe’s capitals and attractions on a routine basis, we decided that it was time to make the move. After (re)establishing ourselves in Boca Raton, we continued to work on both continents and decided to make our family home into a home away from home for guests from around the world. Villa Margarita was recently remodeled and updated with a European flair and eye on comfort and enjoyment of life. We are adjacent to the city center and thus in the midst of a variety of amenities that give it a town feeling with the benefits of a vibrant city. Daily shopping is literally around the corner; there are an amazing variety of shops within a radius of 500 yards ... yet, it is a residential neighborhood, with a pool surrounded by lush garden, a beautiful, well kept and highly diverse, sports-oriented park with playgrounds for kids across the street and only minutes from renowned beaches and downtown's fabulous shops, restaurants and entertainment.
Location and Amenities - a 5 minute drive will bring you to beautiful beaches and the downtown area. The beaches are among the best kept in the country and host parks that are dedicated to nature and a golf course. Downtown East Boca has two distinct areas, both with a large variety of restaurants and shops that leave nothing to be desired. In addition, you will find a new, upscale film theater, a highly related museum of art and an amphitheater that features leading, world-class entertainers; imagine, dining at a wonderful restaurant while listening to famous artists entertain you in the background !
The property microclimate is excellent. With a line-of-sight distance from the Atlantic of c. 750 yards, the house receives a breeze from the ocean during the day, which brings a whiff of the Atlantic with it. In the evening, if there are waves, one can hear them amidst the call of the night birds. Cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter than places just a short distance further inland, one can spend many an evening on the covered patio, dining and enjoying the peaceful, pool garden.
The villa offers just about everything needed to make life on vacation enjoyable and relaxing, a home away from home for the discerning traveler.
Have a great vacation and Happy Holidays !
VILLA MARGARITA is located in one of the most enjoyable areas in the US to live and visit.
Your home away from home is in trendy ‘East Boca’, just 5 minutes from miles of fantastic, resort style beaches and even closer less to a vibrant downtown with dozens of great outdoor cafes and restaurants, some with live music, fine boutiques and shops, the highly acclaimed Museum of Art, an iPic ‘ultimate cinema’, an amphitheater that features world-class performers and a steady program of festivals and Art Shows.
The amenities within a few minutes’ walk start with Lake Wyman Park directly across the street, featuring various sport options, including playgrounds, tennis courts, a fitness jogging path with a special, shock absorbing foundation and physical fitness ‘stations’ and a nature boardwalk through adjoining James Rutherford Park. Shops to meet all of your daily needs are within 5 minutes walk, starting right around the corner.
Boca Raton’s beaches deserve the accolades they have received; in a few minutes' drive south to Palmetto Park Road and a few hundred yards east, you arrive at the first of three beach parks, South Beach; midway up the coast is Red Reef Park, known for great snorkel diving; finally, Spanish river Park is the northern terminus of these beautiful beach parks. Boardwalks run up and down the dune areas parallel to and connecting the beaches, skirting grill and picnic areas. At Red Reef Park you find one of Boca Raton’s two Municipal Golf Courses (one of the many fine courses here) and, a little further North, is Gumbo Limbo Park, a marine and coastal environmental center that is fun for both adults and children.
Other attractions for the youngsters are Sugar Sand Park (c. 10 minutes drive), which features a Community Center with the Children's Science Explorium and Willow Theatre as well as a field house, with an indoor gymnasium. For ‘Kids of All Ages’ there is Boomer’s , a family entertainment Park with Go Karts, Bumper Boats, Miniature Golf, Rock Wall and Laser Tag, Game Room & Bowling next to the modern movie theater complex ‘Cinemark Palace’, with 20 concurrent screens.
There are two libraries in Boca, a Children’s museum and … we could fill pages with all the amenities in the community but ask you to take a moment to explore yourself. In adjacent communities, Nature Friends will adore a tour of Butterfly World or The Morikami Museum and Japanese Garden, (both c. 15 Minutes away) or, a bit further, the Palm Beach Zoo.
If shopping is on your list of things to do, Town Center Mall is c. 10 minutes away and it will put a big smile on your face; it has major department stores - Saks 5th Avenue, Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdales, Macy's to name a few - and dozens of shops, headlined by Abercrombie, Gap(s), Louis Vuittan and Victoria’s Secret, as well as bars and restaurants for shoppers. For the even more serious shopper, it only takes c. 30 minutes to reach the megamall Sawgrass Mills, which gives a new sense of meaning to the humorous euphemism, 'Shop ‘til you drop'.
In less than an hour, you can be in other interesting communities and cities, such as Delray Beach and Palm Beach to the north, and Fort Lauderdale and Miami to the south, for day-trips that top off a vacation full of fun, activity and entertainment with unparalleled variety … from window shopping on Worth Avenue to strolling down Miami’s famous South Beach to taking in world-class entertainment and rolling the dice at the Seminole Hardrock Hotel & Casino or touring the Everglades, there is always something special to do.
The Theme Parks of Orlando and The Florida Keys are about three to four hours' drive.
