Guestbook comments from the owner
A wonderful house in a great location. The pictures acurately represented the house and the furniture was mostly new. New kitchen was great. It was in a great neighbor hood. My dog Coco and I walked to Atlantic Avenue for breakfast. Now that I'm back North, from time to time I think of my days in the sun.

Love the beach, great restaurants, love to travel, art and shopping.

The Owner purchased this house in 2002

Delray Beach, Florida is only 30 minutes to West Palm Beach Airport. Delray is beautiful, has world-class restaurants, great shopping, is cosmopolitan but has a small town atmosphere. The high season runs from late December through March with beautiful balmy warm weather. Delray has a beautiful wide sandy beach with cabana umbrellas, and restaurants that are only steps away so you can sun bathe and then lunch at a nearby outdoor eatery. I fell in love with Delray after driving down the entire Eastern seaboard when I was searching for a second home located at the beach.

Sunbathing, biking, eating at wonderful restaurants, nightlife and shopping.

A LITTLE GEM IN DELRAY BEACH

  • 5 of 5
A great location!! We were in the process of relocating, so the amenities were appreciated and nothing was overlooked. This lovely cottage located on a quite street was so close to Atlantic Avenue (3.5 blocks) and the beach (~8 blocks), that we walked everywhere. There are also free shuttles along Atlantic, and if needed, we saw "free" open air taxis occasionally drive up and down the street in front of the house carrying riders. But about every need is within walking distance (restaurants, Publix grocery store, a drug store, and a great putt-putt course our kids loved). The owner was very accommodating, immediately responding to our questions and needs...an absolute pleasure!

CHARMING COTTAGE, GREAT OWNER

  • 5 of 5
We rented this cottage for three months this year. The location is wonderful. Our favorite thing was walking to any of the many restaurants on Atlantic Avenue. Delray Beach has so many wonderful activities and you can reach them easily from this cottage.There are three wonderful wildlife refuges nearby and we spent a lot of time at these just walking and looking at the birds. The photos of the property are accurate. The purple bougainvillea in front of the house is grogeous and the backyard is filled with trees and other tropical plants. Our dog loved running around chasing her tennis balls. We had never used vrbo before. and even though some close friends had checked out the location we were nervous renting from so far away.The owner met us at the property and showed us how to work everything and even assisted with the computer connection . Everything was in good working order and any minor problems we had were quickly corrected by either the property manager, who lives nearby, or the owner herself. The security deposit was returned promptly. It was a thoroughly relaxing and wonderful three months escaping the Chicago winters.We loved it so much we rented it for next year before we left.

WONDERFUL COTTAGE IN A GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this cozy, convenient cottage. The photos did not do the house justice. We walked in to find a spic and span and nicely decorated beach house that was well-equipped and most of the appliances were new. The view from the back deck was awesome, a tropical paradise. We thoroughly enjoyed it.
The location was great. We were only three blocks to all the Atlantic Avenue activities, wonderful outdoor cafes and shops. There was a grocery store and drug store within walking distance (2 blocks) so everything was within easy reach. The beach was about 8 blocks away and many days we just walked to the beach, having breakfast in one of the cafes on the way.
There is also a shuttle bus in Delray that goes to the beach and to the restaurants and clubs. We just walked three blocks and were in easy access to the beach and to restaurants. I didn't have to worry about parking or having a glass of wine and driving home. It was great!
The owner was exceptionally helpful and pleasant to work with. I definitely plan to come back.

MEMORABLE STAY, JUST WHAT WE WANTED

  • 5 of 5
I just recently checked to see if the lovely cottage in Delray that we stayed in 6 years ago was still listed for rent. My wife, dog, and myself saw the cottage during a trip to visit my father. At the time it was not on the VRBO. I am writing this review now because I was shocked to see the terrible review left by a former renter. Our experience was anything BUT what they claim.

We rented the cottage for three months starting January 1. When the three months were up and it was time to leave, we were quite sad to say goodbye to both the cottage and to Delray Beach. At that time, the owner had done an extensive remake of the cottage, and we found the entire place to our liking. I can see from the pictures that the interior looks as lovely as we remember it, and the outside has been enhanced by new plantings.

We found everything at the cottage to be to our liking. Indeed, the bedroom is a converted former porch, but it has been totally enclosed and is a true bedroom. The backyard has a wonderful wooden deck and barbecue, and it leads out onto a true tropical landscape. The air conditioner is also a heater and being centrally located in this cottage is absolutely sufficient for the entire interior. We also appreciated the full size washer and dryer, and yes, it was in the bathroom - no problem there.

The heart of downtown Delray is literally a few city blocks west, and is a great and vibrant downtown which I wouldn't mind calling my home town. However the street that the cottage is on is absolutely quiet and populated by private homes. There is a Publix and Walgreens not more than two short blocks north and the intracoastal is two blocks east. The Atlantic Ocean is accessible only a few minutes walk away and it is a beautiful stretch of beach with a handful of restaurants (Luna Rosa was our go-to place) within feet of the beach.

The owner was very accommodating, providing an additional desk because at the time that we stayed my wife was still working, telecommuting, and she had a magnificent place to call her office - that desk next to the kitchen and facing out onto the backyard. We would take walks along the beach early in the morning as she was working her west coast hours and our mornings were free.

In summary, I cannot express more strongly how pleasant the stay and the cottage and life there was. I am still quite dismayed that some recent renters found so much fault, that I doubt that there is much truth to their story.

CHARMING BUNGALOW

  • 5 of 5
We arrived on 4/1/12 and stayed a month while throughly enjoying our time at this charming bungalow with renovated kitchen. Delray is such a great place and this home was perfect for the month. What a great location, we practically walked everywhere! And if you perfer not to walk, call the Delray Downtowner for a free ride, you just have to tip the driver. Some of our favorite places were Cafe Luna Rosa on the beach and Deck 84 on the Intracostal Waterway, not to mention all of the activities on the Avenue. I have to say after reading the rude review below that they must have been in a different home from the one we were in. The air conditioner certainly kept the home well below 78 degrees, seeing as we had it set at 68 for the entire stay. When arriving it was turned off, and took about an hour or so to cool the entire home. We did not have any problems with any of the appliances, and cooked a great deal while doing many loads of laundry (the washer and dryer were nearly brand new). The bedroom is small, but was fine for sleeping, and I can assure you that we were not bitten by any bugs while sleeping or otherwise (I would not have remained for a month), believe me. The owner was very accomodating and took care of any issues that we had immediately, we would definitely rent the home again.

PICTURE PERFECT

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful experience! It was such a pleasure to be able to stay in the solitude and quiet of a perfectly appointed and clean little cottage. It needed absolutely nothing to be a better vacation, and so close to the Delray Beach downtown that you still miss none of the life of the township. I stayed a month and would have remained if there was availability! I would not hesitate to return for a much longer period. Thank you so much!!!
