About Ken Schulman

Esther and Ken Schulman are retired New Yorkers. We have been coming to Delray for 30 years to visit family and have watched the Village by the Sea grow to Fun Town USA. Esther is a jeweler and artist. Ken is a retired ad man. They both ran many successful antique stores in NYC like Stardust Antiques in Gramercy Park. We love to swim, cook & eat, entertain, bike, go to the beach. And our new interest pottery. We are also voracious readers. Esther has a jewelry workshop and sells some of her antique jewelry.

Ken Schulman purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Ken Schulman chose Delray Beach

Location, location and a big beautiful heated salt water swimming pool. The main house and guest house share 1/3 acre of old Florida lush beauty. It is a quiet little community of 2 streets known as La Hacienda founded in 1928. Anyone renting our guest house will have everything they need for a wonderful, comfortable vacation. Recent French tenants have told us it reminds them of Provence.

Proceed To Step 2

  • 5 of 5

If you are planning a vacation to South Florida you can take either step 1 or step 2.

Step 1: You can make a triangular graph with location, layout of rental properties and how pleasant the host are. Then take the logistics from FLL or PBI and make a subtle delineation. Make a hypothesis using their salt water pool ( heated or chilled ) and lovely floral surroundings. Take a subliminal flow chart of Delray Beach, Atlantic Avenue and all the restaurants and retail so close by.

Step: 2. Book the La Hacienda cottage. You will love it.

Thank you so much Esther and Ken.

Very nice stay

  • 5 of 5

Everything you need, and more. Complete cottage with kitchen, full-sized refrigerator, laundry (very helpful in humid Florida - you can pack less), cable TV, and a heated swimming pool with a plethora of towels. Nice path down the block leads to the beach (not a short walk though). Plenty of stores and services nearby including a French bakery, Publix, drug stores, yoga, and banks. Very convenient location to the ocean, downtown Delray, and I-95. Easy drive into Boynton where we visited Morikami Tea Garden and Wakadohatchee nature preserve. Ken and Esther were gracious hosts.

Beautiful little piece of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at La Hacienda when we came to Delray Beach for a wedding. We loved it! Ken and Esther are the most gracious hosts and lovely people. The saltwater pool was fabulous and we enjoyed swimming twice a day during our stay. It has been decorated to make you feel like you are in old Florida and we felt like we were somewhere Hemingway would have lived. The queen bed is very comfortable and we slept well. The property is covered with beautiful flowering trees, cacti, and other interesting flora and fauna. Highly recommend this place!

Little piece of island

  • 5 of 5

My first experience with VRBO and I have to say i was completely satisfied. Ken and Esther were fabulous hosts. They were there to greet me when I arrived. I originally was concerned that sharing "space" would be intrusive , however they were accommodating and never over stepped the privacy factor. We wound up hanging by the pool with them and had a lovely time. My fiancee is from Jamaica and he was naming all the beautiful vegetation on the property and he felt like home. The location was great and the neighborhood quirky, I loved it. I truly would recommend this little cottage.
