About Cherí

After traveling the globe and visiting multiple countries I settled into West Palm Beach. It has been home for over 15 years and I love living here. There is always so much to see and do and with the new stadium opening more live events will be available. I still frequently travel so the concierge Angela will be available as your local contact when I am out of town.

Cherí purchased this house in 2016

Why Cherí chose Flamingo Parks

Negril Escape was named after one of my favorite cities in Jamaica. A beautiful country I encourage everyone to visit at least once. The interior design of this home encompasses both Key West and British West Indies Elements. It is a beautiful home and I hope you will enjoy your stay with us.

What makes this house unique

I really love how close this property is to downtown West Palm Beach and the intra coastal. Its about a 20 minute walk to cute downtown cafes and shopping. Also a quick bike ride to the intra coastal great for watching the fireworks on July 4th or walking to the green market on Saturday morning. Its a daily treat living in this home.

Also the home is just across the street from Grand view Public Market & The Warehouse District. Grandview Market is a culinary marketplace filled with amazing food. Such has organic acai breakfast bowls, cold pressed juices, best fried chicken, tacos, ice cream, Detroit style pizza, fresh Hawaiian poke, freshly brewed coffee and a craft cocktail bar plus a full service butcher offering pasture raised meats and fresh made sausage. Also night Farmers Market every Wednesday, Wine tasting every Thursday and live Reggae Music Sunday evenings.

Also across the street from Bikram Yoga studio. We provide yoga mats.

Our vacation at Negril Escape was fantastic!

Cheri responded to my questions very quickly and was very helpful. Angela, the contact during our stay, was amazing. She was available to answer all our questions and made things very easy during our stay. (Thank you Angela!)

We arrived late at night to find a welcome basket of fruit with crackers and cheese. There was coffee and tea with all the fixings and even some eggs for breakfast! Now thats hospitality! The property location was was very central to City Place, Downtown, Beaches and a few different Marketplaces. The Marketplace on Clematis was great!

The pool patio was great to just sit and relax and enjoy the sun! We would definitely stay here again. Thank you Cheri and Angela for welcoming us and making our stay so enjoyable!

Lovely house in convenient location

  • 5 of 5

Three young professionals rented the house for the summer and had a great experience! We were there for work purposes rather than vacation, but on evenings and weekends we found that the house was conveniently located near beaches, downtown West Palm Beach, City Place (shops, restaurants, bars), the Palm Beach Zoo, and a nice park. You could bike to the intracoastal waterway or Palm Beach Island, but any other beaches you would need to drive to. You're also only a few minutes away from multiple grocery stores.

The house was clean when we arrived, the beds were comfortable, and the house is nicely furnished (very true to the photos in the listing). Cheri, the owner, and Angela, the property manager, were always available if we needed anything and helped resolve any issues quickly.

We stayed at the house during the construction of the pool, so we were not able to use the yard (we knew this in advance), but the pool was mostly finished before we left and looks great! This will be a wonderful addition to the property. We would stay here again!

Amazing Cottage Stay in West Palm Beach

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for an absolutely WONDERFUL time. The property and location are absolutely OUTSTANDING for our needs. I'm always looking into properties for business reasons and this worked out PERFECT for all. The close proximity to downtown, our work location and the back patio were appreciated by all. As I am usually renting for business purposes, I feel obligated to say that this place is on the top of my list for my stay next year. From our arrival to our departure Cheri, the owner and Angella, the concierge made our stay a great one!
