About the property

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’re bicycles at your disposal for those rides to the beach. 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.

Everything about the house was wonderful. It was just as I expected from the photos and reviews. We never needed anything from Art & Da, but they were gracious showing us the house on arrival and I am sure they would be available if we needed them.

Wonderful, spacious house with all the comforts of home

  • 5 of 5

Great house for 5 people. We didn't use the guest cottage but could have if we had a fifth member. Walk to Atlantic Avenue for coffee and restaurants. Fun shops too!

It was nice to have the small pool though we didn't use it. Well-equipped kitchen and spacious bedrooms and bathrooms. Comfy beds too! The house is in meticulous condition thanks to the owners who are nearby.

Charming Key West Home in Delray Beach

  • 5 of 5

We stayed the first week of December 2017 and had a wonderful time. My wife and I as well as our three grown children. Upon arrival, Art and Da greeted us, provided a tour, explained a few things then made sure we knew they were available if needed which we greatly appreciated. They have thought of everything in this house and it was most comfortable. The pool area is awesome, so relaxing and quiet. Our oldest son stayed in the guest house and he appreciated the privacy. The location to downtown Delray Beach was very convenient. Overall, it was a perfect place for us and we will be back!

All the comforts

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home located adjacent to downtown Delray, Florida served as a wonderful gathering place for a group of cousins who were visiting an uncle for his 100th birthday. The house is exquisitely appointed with extremely comfortable beds and beautiful bathrooms. The kitchen was fully stocked. The backyard was a wonderful gathering place to sit and drink coffee in the morning around the pool. We did not take advantage of the beach but know that it is therefore enjoyment. The hosts, Art and Da, met us on entry and showed us all around the house and were available to us if we needed anything, thereafter. They checked on our every need with a text message through our short stay. I have stayed in many VRBO units in the past and I have never seen one as immaculate and comfortable as this particular house. We visit Delray with some frequency and this will be our house of first choice.
