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.

Perfect spot for our family vacation with very gracious hosts.

  • 5 of 5

We come to the Boynton Beach area about once a year to visit friends. However, now that we have six children aged 6 years to 6 months between us (3 a piece), it's a little too cozy to stay at their house! We came in for a long weekend over Easter and wanted to find a spot that cost no more than a hotel, but was close to our friends' house and large enough for us, our two young sons, and infant daughter to all sleep quietly and comfortably. This MORE than fit the bill!! There was plenty of space for all of us. The cottage is much larger than it appears in photos. The boys slept well on the daybed sofas in the living room, and my husband and I had the bedroom. The bathroom is conveniently located between the two rooms with pocket doors on either side. The walk-in-closet was the perfect dark, quiet spot for our pack-n-play. There is also a laundry room and fully-equipped kitchen, which were wonderful, unexpected perks. Two things that make traveling with children SO much easier! However, the biggest perk is the new, beautiful, warm backyard tropical pool oasis! Private and wonderful.

I'm sure the owners, Ken and Ester, were a little nervous to see us pull up with our little crew of rugrats (wink), but I'm thankful they opened their door to us. Communication before travel was great, they both walked us through the property when we arrived, and really graciously allowed us to feel at home and use anything we needed, while still affording us our privacy. Had we not had our whole gang with us, I'm sure we would have had a lovely time chatting more with them over a glass of wine (which Ester so kindly offered one evening). Had we been sans children, we probably would have enjoyed sitting by the pool with a book out of their extensive library, as well!

The house and neighborhood is quiet and felt very safe. It is close to Delray Beach, shopping, and several restaurants. The French Bakery nearby is INCREDIBLE! Must check it out.

Overall, we had a most enjoyable stay at La Hacienda. It fit our needs perfectly and we would definitely stay again!

Couldn't be more perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This charming cottage is the perfect spot to enjoy DelRay and the coast of Florida. It's proximity to the main attractions in DelRay is perfect; just far enough to avoid huge crowds and noise but close enough to be there in a matter of minutes. The property itself was just as described and the pool is inviting and relaxing. Ken and Ester were there to answer questions but certainly gave us our space. Wonderful people that obviously care about their property and their guests. Don't hesitate renting this property.

OK....My 94 year old Mom and I pulled up and she was SERIOUSLY concerned at first glance, since she is accustomed to a hotel.. You have no idea how wonderful this little home was and how cute , quirky, and wonderfully appointed (and functional!) it was ! Much more spacious than expected. If you love a quirky, artsy little retreat and neighborhood this is your dream as it was mine! Wonderful hosts! ,Helpful, interesting, intelligent, wonderfully engaging but respectful of space. I would love to have them as neighbors. I will look forward to coming back and hanging at the pool a bit more...we ran out of time. Thank you Esther and Ken I cannot wait to spend more time at La Hacienda! Thank you!
