Delray Beach House Rental Photos and Description

Beautiful Key West Style 3 Bedroom 2-1/2 Bath Home W/ Pool And Guest Cottage

Beautiful Key West style three bedroom 2-1/2 bath home with heated pool plus separate guest cottage with full bath. Just a few blocks to award-winning restaurants on Atlantic Avenue and the sensation Artist's Alley district. Best of all, only one mile away, lies pristine white sand beaches and warm aqua blue ocean water. The NY TIMES called Delray 'the best beach location in the country'.

Enjoy old world charm in a tropical setting in the heart of historic Delray. The house is a replica of a famous Key West house but built in 1999 with all modern amenities.

The living room is reminiscent of the Ernest Hemingway era, complete with West Indies décor and custom window treatments. The dining groom is graciously appointed and large enough to seat eight.

The kitchen includes all state-of-the-art appliances and is completely equipped to make you feel at home. The cozy seating nook in the kitchen is perfect for guests to sit back and relax while you are cooking.

The informal den is the central gathering place where everyone can kick back and relax. The entertainment center includes HDTV, DVD, and CD/receiver. French doors open to the private pool and patio. This tropical oasis is surrounded by palm trees and lush exotic plants complete with a pool and patio of authentic Chicago brick with plenty of oversized loungers, table with umbrella, and gas grill.

Just off the pool is the private guest cottage which is furnished with a queen bed, cable tv, and separate bath. The perfect retreat for overnight guests.

Three more bedrooms are located upstairs in the main house providing luxurious amenities. The master bedroom is in the front of the house with a fabulous balcony where you’ll enjoy late morning breakfasts. It is decorated in the West Indies style with a private bath complete with upscale vanity/fixtures and oversize shower. A TV and DVD player are housed in a beautiful armoire.

Two other bedrooms are tastefully decorated, one in a soft blue nautical theme and the other in a brightly-colored yellow and rose flower motif.

Another complete bath off the two bedrooms is bright and cheerful.

The laundry room is located in the upstairs hall, providing you with convenience and easy access.

The house is located on Swinton Avenue, the main street of the historic section of Delray Beach, just 3 blocks off trendy Atlantic Avenue with an array of fine and casual dining along with unique shops and lots of entertainment.

Everything you need is within walking distance, but in case you want some exercise, there’s four bicycles at your disposal for those rides to the beach. We also have a season pass for 2 of the beach chairs with 1 umbrella. If you don't want to drive, there is a free shuttle and a free taxi service called 'The Downtowner' (tips only).

All linens, dishes, and kitchenware, cable TV, Wi-Fi, BBQ grill are included, and we have made every effort to provide you with all the amenities to make your stay unforgettable.

This is a non-smoking rental. Renters must be over 25 years of age.

We are pet-friendly.

The house and grounds are absolutely gorgeous! Perfectly maintained and beautifully furnished.

  • 5 of 5

Four mothers and daughters stayed here for a bridal shower weekend. The house and grounds are gorgeous. Art and Da have thought of everything a guest could need (or want) to have a fun-filled, luxurious vacation. It was a very easy walk to all of the activity, fine dining, and shopping on Atlantic Avenue, but also a peaceful retreat just enjoying the pool and patio. We would love to come again!

Great place to stay for our family get-together!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay... the house was in a great location just three blocks from Atlantic Avenue and lots of restaurants and shopping. And the nearby Delray Beach is really a good beach for families, with chairs and umbrellas available for rent (and a beach pass was included with the house.) The house was in good shape, nicely decorated, and the kitchen was well-equipped. Everything worked, and our few questions were answered quickly by Art and Da. Plenty of hanging out room in the house for our family, and it was really nice having a separate "guest quarters" next to the pool in addition to the three bedrooms in the main house. Definitely recommend if you are looking for convenience and comfort.

Amazing Weekend in Delray!

  • 5 of 5

This house is amazing. It's adorable, warm and welcoming. The set up and decor make your stay super cozy, and it immidiately felt like home, even for a few days. It's fully equipped with comfortable beds, tons of linens, laundry, kitchen supplies, everything will need. They even have a great sound system, and everything we needed that we seemed to have forgotten. They even had some left over paper drink umbrellas! :)

The backyard is incredible. The pool is refreshing, the landscape is beautiful and it makes you feel like you are in your own secluded paradise! There is plenty of space to be together with your group, or spread out for some time alone. It's truly a great place to stay.

While I never met them in person, Art and Da were extremely helpful and welcoming. We arrived to a welcome note with any information we may need and they made it easy to check out!

I highly, highly recommend this home. It is a 10 minutes walk to Atlantic Ave. where there are great bars, restaurants and cafes to explore. We didn't even utilize the guest house but that looks amazing as well!

Big thank you to Art and Da!!

Felt like home!

  • 5 of 5

We planned a quick trip to do some diving out of Boynton Marina. I'm so glad we stumbled upon this house in our search for a place to stay! It was immaculately clean and had everything we could need. The house was so beautiful, and the bedroom layout with the separate cottage out back by the pool was just what we needed for everyone to be comfortable. Thank you Art and Da for being so easy to work with and making your home such a nice getaway for vacationers! We will definitely be booking again if we are in the area!

Perfect Delray Rental

  • 5 of 5

From the first step of booking, to our arrival, to the check out process, Art and Da were incredibly welcoming and attentive. We couldn't ask for better hosts.

The house itself is in a fantastic location, with plenty of off-street parking for guests that drive. It's just a quick walk to all of the bars, shops, and restaurants.

The house was also beautifully appointed with nice linens and towels, and all of the kitchen items you could possibly need. The bedrooms were very comfortable, and there are plenty of seating areas to gather. We especially loved the beautiful pool and patio area, where we spent most of our time. Such a treasure!

We also took advantage of the bikes and beach gear, and though we didn't use it, it was great that the rental comes with a free chair/umbrella rental at the beach.

In short, look no further, you will not find a better place to stay! My family is already planning our next trip to stay in this lovely house.
