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 La Hacienda
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.

Good things come in small packages. This cottage was adorable and the heated pool was wonderful. Ken and Esther were lovely.
You were perfect guests we look forward to your return
Wonderful cottage, wonderful hosts
We spent a wonderful 4 nights here. First off, the landscaping is beautiful. The cottage itself was perfect. Plenty of room and plenty of character . We only used the kitchen for cooking breakfast but it was very well arranged and equipped. The mattress was great. We had plenty of water pressure. We were grateful for the washer and dryer. The televisions were easy to operate. Lastly, our hosts were great. Let me tell you: if they recommend a restaurant, listen to them! They were spot-on every time.
Little Cottage, Big Pool
This guest house is great value for Delray Beach. The pool, shared with the owners next door, is heated and gorgeous with plenty of outdoor space for lounging. The quaint little 1 BR cottage was big enough for our family of four. The kids slept comfortably on daybeds in the living room. A large walk-in closet and laundry room provide extra space to stash luggage. The hosts are right next door if you need anything. Ken was very helpful with suggestions on things to do around town--highly recommend the mini golf and the Wakadohatchee Nature Reserve. The only downside was some noise from the train. Not conversation-stopping like it can be in downtown Delray, but noticeable.
Right on Hari your family is lovely and a delight and I hope we see you again I want to watch the kids grow up
Amazing vacation spot!
First time in Delray Beach, and what a great experience! The area and the town have definitely become top Florida destination for me. This cozy, charming cottage has made our stay really memorable! Very clean, plenty of space, great location, and a private swimming pool!!!! My 6 yr old son spent hours in the pool, didn’t even want to go to the beach anymore!
Thank you Ken and Esther for your hospitality, you made our stay more than enjoyable!
Will definitely be back!!
Our Stay at a Delray Beacg Cottage
We wanted to get away from the cold winter this year so we rented this cottage. It was ok, but barely ok.
The hosts gave very good advice about dining and interesting places to visit.
Other goods points were the pool (very good), the kitchen, the bedroom, and the adjacent laundry room.
The negative points were the inadequate, intermittent, and unreliable wifi, the unsafe glass tabletop in the dining area, and the fact that when we arrived the hot water heater was shot, a fact the owners knew, and was only replaced when we said we could not stay there without hot water. The cottage cannot really sleep more than two people, even though technically there are two day beds. It's too small and uncomfortable for more than two people.
Another feature that should be mentioned is that the cottage is filled with many antique-type items. It's like a little museum in that regard. If that's something one likes, fine. If not, it can get old.
Within the first week they had messed up our televisions more than once broken a glass table That they placed a very heavy bouquet on and tipped it.He bled on the floors and furniture as well as the sheets and stained them.
Their last week they broke another item and didn’t offer to pay for it as well as breaking the toilet seat. They were not people we would like to see returning. After 35 five star rentals it is obvious that the problem was them. They did more damage to our property in one week then all the other rentals combined in five years.
Perfect for our family
We took our daughter to FAU and stayed in this lovely little home. It was a perfect size- 1 bedroom and 1 bath with a pool. There was additional sleeping on the 2 couches.
Esther and Ken are such a wonderful couple and made us feel right at home.
We can't wait to come back!
And you are perfect for our family. See you next month
Great pool in backyard. Biking or walking to the beach only 1/2 mile away. Voted best beach in Palm Beach County. La Hacienda is a 2 block, quiet old neighborhood established in 1928. There is a famous Yoga studio on the corner.
