Pristine and private tropical getaway, minutes from city and beach sleeps 10
- english, spanish
We are a beach-loving family of 6 who has been vacationing in West Palm Beach for years. When the opportunity to renovate our own historic vacation home in our favorite neighborhood arose we jumped on it. Because all four of our kids are still in school we are only able to visit West Palm Beach intermittently throughout the year.
Nancy purchased this House in 2013
Why Nancy chose El Cid
Hacienda Barcelona is near everything! We walk on the intracoastal waterway which is only one block away. We bike to the beach. We walk to many local dining spots, City Place, the Kravis Center and the Convention Center. When not out and about we relax in the wonderful tropical gardens surrounding the pool and hot tub.

Perfect Vacation Home!
Every positive review is spot on! Looks every bit as good as the pictures, is expansive. The kitchen is large and fully equipped, bedrooms clean and comfortable. We loved the pool and hot tub. Debra checked us in and showed us around just as planned and Nancy was super to work with, even accommodating a last minute change. Highly recommend, you will not be disappointed!
Loved our stay here. The house was well-stocked with everything we needed, and communication with the owner and property manager was great. Lots of room for our group and it was very clean and well-kept. Definitely recommend.
This property is beautiful and the owner was very responsive with our needs, would definitely rent again!
AS GOOD AS IT GETS!
On a scale of 1 to 10, the house was a 20! My wife and I brought our four children (ages 13 to 23) down for the weekend and the entire family was amazed at how beautiful, clean, and relaxing the house, the pool, and the grounds were. I normally hesitate to use the word "perfect" -- but Hacienda Barcelona is PERFECT.
For starters, the location cannot be beat. 1 block from the intracoastal waterway looking at Palm Beach waterfront mansions, less than a mile from the bridge to the heart of Palm Beach, and located on a quiet side street that is directly between S. Olive and S. Dixie -- which are lined with very good diners (City Diner #1), excellent restaurants (too many to list), and convenient shops (Publix supermarket, CVS pharmacy, Dunkin Donuts morning coffee, etc.). It took us less than 8 minutes to get from the PBI Airport to the house and it took us less than 5 minutes to be in the heart of Palm Beach.
When we pulled our rental car into the spotless driveway, we loved that it was an easy circle loop back to the street but also had the privacy of a dense hedge.
The exterior was maintained by a gardner when we were there! And it looks like it! Every blade of grass was cut, flowers blooming, and ground covering and Palms so nice.
When you go inside, WOW! It looks like the owners clean every inch of the place with a Q-Tip each morning. More importantly, it's extremely well-appointed and the layout of the huge single floor house is awesome -- it's got the most wonderful flow and there is plenty of room for everyone. We very comfortably slept 6 full size people (even our 13 year old is tall) with room to spare.
The owners have fantastic style. You would think the owners were either architects -- who gave it a perfect layout -- or professional home decorators... or both. The appliances were first rate -- from the huge open kitchen to the big laundry room. My kids all used the word "cool" and "so cool" about 500 times that weekend to describe the house. My wife and my oldest both said, "I wish we could buy this house!" I couldn't agree more. It's that special.
And then there's the heated pool with spa and surrounding deck, comfy chairs, and table. It's... once again... PERFECT. Gorgeous. And dense landscaping/trees/bushes provide total privacy for the entire backyard and pool.
It really is as good as it gets. Only better.
Great house in West Palm Beach!
Beautiful house will ALL you need. Very well equipped and its really spacious.
We loved this beautiful home!
It was great from start to finish
Hacienda Barcelona is in the heart of the El Cid historic district - less than 2 miles to downtown West Palm, City Center, the Kravis Center For the Performing Arts and the Norton Museum. It is also one block away from the Intracoastal Waterway and a short jog or bike to the Palm Beach bike path.
