About james and janie douglas

My wife has been going to Delray beach with her family for the past 50 years. When we got married the first thing she said was we have to buy is a place in Delary Beach. We have had a condo for the past 20 years but decided to sell it and buy a home. We knew the area well and when this property came up for sale we jumped on it due to the location and the home. Couldn't be more happy.

james and janie douglas purchased this house in 2012

Love this place so much!

  • 5 of 5

The location, the property, the beach and the restaurants are all amazing. The "Downtowner" is so convenient if you don't want to drive to the restaurants. I will be signing up for my third year very soon. The owners are so accommodating and helpful with any issues big or small. The neighbors are also very nice and helpful.

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

I can't really say enough about the cottage or the owners. James was very available before and during our stay to answer any questions. The house was spotless when we arrived and adorably furnished. The location (at least for us) couldn't have been better: so close to the beach and Atlantic Ave. Beds were super comfy, all linens were clean and fresh. And the neighbors were great. I'd go back in a heartbeat!

Delray Beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

You wont be disappointed by this property. It was everything we hoped it would be. Walking distance to the beach and Atlantic Avenue. Lots of space as it was just the two of us but would be ideal for four people. Very quite and private with friendly neighbours and we felt very safe. I was even on my own in the property for a few days and it was not a problem. Extremely adequate and attractive facilities in the kitchen and bathrooms. We hope to return next year.

Beautiful Home ~ Amazing Location!!!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed in this beautiful home, and couldn't have been more impressed! It is a 3 minute walk to the ocean, and just a short walk to the trendy Atlantic Avenue. Everything you could possibly want, from day spas to nightlife, surrounds this property. At the same time, it sits on a quiet, safe street with the sweetest neighbors.

The home itself is immaculate, beautifully decorated, and fully stocked with everything you could possibly need, from soft sheets and plush towels, to cookware and a backyard grill.

It was an absolute pleasure doing business with the owners. They are lovely people and couldn't have been more accommodating.
