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.

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.

Nice cottage in great location

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 nights in early May at this one-bedroom cottage. It had everything we needed. The owners were wonderful, and the location was terrific. Would definitely stay here again if back in the Delray Beach area.

We spent two very relaxing weeks at Ken and Esther's little hacienda. The pictures do not do it justice.... It is much larger than we expected!! The kitchen is well stocked with all the dishes/pots and pans you could possibly need. It shows that Ken loves to cook! We ate in most meals. Very convenient to any thing you might need. The pool is delightful... Unfortunately the weather did not always cooperate ... But we did get in a couple of swims. Ken and Esther are delightful hosts. We thoroughly enjoyed getting to know them.

Old Florida Charm

  • 5 of 5

The four of us, from France and Canada, feel very fortunate to have discovered La Hacienda Cottage in old Delray Beach. We spent a full week there recently; our raison d'être - to visit our elderly parents.

The photos of the cottage inspired us, the description more than met our needs. And the reality far surpassed our expectations.

Full of charm, intimate, yet spacious enough for the four of us and all our stuff, and so thoughtfully and tastefully arranged and decorated by its owners - we felt at home instantly.

The large bathroom separates the living room and bedroom, and sliding doors ensure absolute privacy.

We took advantage of the fully equipped kitchen to enjoy leisurely breakfasts of fresh brewed coffee and warm croissants from the nearby French bakery : Merci Ken and Esther for this great recommendation!

Sadly, we didn't have time to enjoy the inviting saltwater pool and tranquil garden out our back door. Next trip!

La Hacienda Cottage is a slice of Paradise. And our hosts are its angels who could not be more gracious or more considerate. Their warmth and generous spirit were evident from our first communication by email, months before we actually met.

Ken and Esther showed their kindness in so many ways. They extended their hospitality to our family, as well : We had planned a BBQ one night and when we were caught in a downpour, they invited us all into their beautiful home to continue dinner. A magical evening we will treasure forever.

The location of the cottage is simply ideal; 5 minutes from bustling downtown historic Delray, Atlantic Avenue and the Delray Market, and 5 minutes from the beach. And 5 minutes from our family.

We were so taken by the charms of La Hacienda and by the graciousness of our hosts, we have planned to return next spring.

Merci mille fois, Ken and Esther! We can't wait to be back home in your cozy cottage!
