About Helen

Living in Delray 23 years, I'm an artist and sailor from the Northeast who also stays on Cape Cod.

I look forward to sharing the fun-filled town of Delray, and this special house, with you.

Helen purchased this house in 1993

Why Helen chose Palm Beach County

I fell in love with this house immediately, and so do many others.

Built in 1960 and renovated in 2006, it has original pine ceilings and terrazzo floors in the old section, and a modern loft-style concrete floor and wood ceilings in the new part. The entry courtyard sets a relaxed mediterranean mood. High ceilings and garden views from every window allow plenty of breathing room and privacy. I love the abundance of nature on the property as a contrast to the bustling activity downtown.

Truth in Advertising!

  • 5 of 5

I could easily just cut and paste the owner’s description here. This rental is truly a bright, airy sanctuary in a great location, near everything. The home is clean and spacious and easily accommodates four adults with its large bedrooms and two bathrooms. The master bedroom has a functional office space, which unfortunately we had to use frequently during our vacation. The kitchen is well appointed with up-to-date appliances. Everything we needed to prepare our meals was at our disposal. If I have one minor complaint, it would be the lack of a chef’s knife.

What drew me to the house initially was all the options available for dining, entertaining and relaxing. If the weather permits, the outdoor courtyard is perfect for morning coffee, afternoon cocktail or just reading a book. If rain is in the forecast, as it was virtually our entire stay, the screened-in patio is the next best thing. The backyard is like a tropical rain forest, lush, green and begging to be explored. A few ripe mangos fell off the tree, practically into my lap and onto the breakfast table.

The location of the house couldn’t be much better. Nestled into a quiet street, the house is only two blocks or so from Atlantic Ave making it a short walk to the heart of Delray Beach and a variety of restaurants and shops. Head three or four blocks north and you’re at Publix Market and Walgreen's drug store. You’re also a quick bike ride or car drive to the public beach. A beach pass is provided for the use of an umbrella and two chairs. That’ll save you $40 in rental fees.

We only stayed 4 nights here, but I would love to come back for a week or more. Helen is an excellent host who made sure that if we needed anything we could call for assistance. I highly recommend this Delray Beach gem.

This property is lovely!

  • 5 of 5

This home has the "beach house" feel. It's lovely! The landscaping is tropical, and we found ourselves exploring it every day. It is a close walk to restaurants and the beach. The little details made our stay perfect! We cooked, barbecued, sat in the screened I'm patio, and generally enjoyed every part of the home!

A wonderful rental. So charming inside & out. Within walking distance of beach, restaurants & shops

  • 5 of 5

We've been to Delray Beach many times over 28 years and had never stayed near the beach until this trip.

We loved this house and how close it is to everything. The photos are a really good representation of the property.

The owner has made sure that anything you could need is available from cooking supplies to beach tags for chairs to bikes.

The house was spotless and well maintained and the owner left us notes and a phone number in case we had questions.

There are lots of great restaurants within walking distance, and galleries, and shops. A short car ride away are nature preserves with birds galore.

We were in Delray mainly for business, but we tried to take advantage of everything in the area. And we really enjoyed sitting in the courtyard just relaxing.

The home has lots of interesting art on the walls, and CDs and movie DVDs…nothing was lacking. We'd stay again without hesitation and highly recommend it.

Beautifully decorated with personal touches. Impeccably clean. Piano and guitar available for musicians. Gorgeous tropical garden. Old Delray Beach charm. Can't wait to come back every year to make this our Florida vacation escape.

Comfortable and Stylish Retreat

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful home ! Our visit to Delaray Beach was improved ten fold by choosing the unique , clean and comfortable home. As stated convenient short walk to restaurants , shopping , beach and every possible convenience but nesseled into quiet, quaint and safe neighborhood which felt miles away. The private large and sunny court yard with water feature was heavenly. Lush tropical garden and comfortable and beautiful screened in patio doubles as living space with comfortable seating and dinning area. The home had every possible necessity and then some. The owner was so helpful and responsive to any and all questions, concerns and available to help with suggestion on any number of inquiry's . The entire experience was a pleasure , we hope to repeat.

This is a very cute, very well maintained house. Kitchen is very well equipped and the beds are great. Two patios make the house great for the Florida weather.

But the best feature is the location. Walk to beach, walk to town and restaurants, walk to grocery store and drug store. Beach pass and bikes were provided with the property. Owner is responsive and pleasant. I would highly recommend this property.
