There is an eat-in kitchen with a large barstool dining island as you prepare your gourmet meals.

The Executive Golf Course is also within 3 blocks and is laid out along the ocean shore. Unique Gumbo Limbo Nature Center (4 blocks) features naturalists to instruct on local flora and fauna including tanks with sea turtles and boardwalk through the mangrove hammocks to a tower which you climb to see the treetops. Hop on your bikes (provided) to view the beautiful homes, meet the neighbors or explore lovely Boca (7 minutes by bike)with its world famous shopping, elegant dining and Spanish style architecture.

Our immaculate, charming home features hardwood floors throughout, overhead paddle fans and lots of windows for the fresh ocean air to waft through. Of course, it has central air as well. The living room is spacious and connects with the formal dining area. After a day at the beach, shopping, exploring and dining you'll want to relax in your private, pristine pool then retire to your king sized bed. This master suite includes also a queen sized sofa sleeper for those who have small children and want them closer than the second bedroom that features two twin beds (these can be made up into a king). The third bedroom is on the other side of the house, near the kitchen and has the larger tv and a comfortable queen sofa sleeper. Usually, the teenagers like this set up! There are also two recliners in this cozy library-type room with lots of books to chose from for your vacation reading. There are 3 full baths, three cable TV's, WiFi , a very well equipped kitchen with a coffee maker, toaster, blender, dishwasher, ice-maker, water filter. There's a washer and dryer in a separate laundry room. Come stay in your new, comfortable 'home away from home' and make some great memories! I'll do my best to make you feel very welcomed and taken care of!
Recently stepping down from being general manager of a boutique hotel on Deerfield Beach for the past 17 years, I'm now giving my time to mentoring students at Florida Atlantic University in Boca.
I've loved the hospitality industry and really enjoy welcoming new friends from all over the world since I've traveled quite a bit--over 40 nations and all of the U.S. Places became special when I was able to get to know 'locals'. My hope is that I can extend that personal hospitality to people who stay in our home and make some new friends!
Deborah purchased this house in 1972
Our family began coming to Florida in 1951 from Cleveland where my father was a builder. When my parents were finally able to move here, my dad often said he felt he had died and gone to heaven.
When they purchased this property in 1972, it was and remains one of the most prime locations in Boca Raton. It's only several blocks from the prestigious Boca Raton Hotel--destination of the rich and famous for decades and in such an exclusive, beachside neighborhood!
We have the best neighbors and even a neighborhood picnic yearly! Our home is located on an island that makes it so quaint, private and safe, even though it's just steps from the beach. We love the French style windows that we leave open most of the year to enjoy the fresh ocean breeze or, in the summer, we use our central AC and a dip in the refreshing pool. We pretty much live outside on the porch with a dining table, barbecue, lounges with comfortable pads (for an afternoon nap) and quaint wicker furniture. My dad caught the large sailfish that's mounted on the wall. We have so many wonderful memories of our 30+ years of living in this home. We'd love to share it with your family to make your own!
Golf: Lovely, recently refurbished, oceanside 9 hole, very inexpensive course just 2 blocks up the street! Popular Gumbo Limbo Nature Center with boardwalks through mangroves and view tower is just a few blocks up the street. Also view and talk to naturalists about turtles and sealife in tanks.
Red Reef Park/beach, boardwalk, showers, picnic areas--Boca's best beach just steps away from home! Only 2 miles from Mizner Park--fine dining, shopping and Amphitheater with many free concerts and events. Royal Palm shopping and dining same distance away--also has green market on Saturdays.
