About Deborah

Recently stepping down from being general manager of a boutique hotel on Deerfield Beach for the past 17 years, I'm now giving my time to mentoring students at Florida Atlantic University in Boca.

I've loved the hospitality industry and really enjoy welcoming new friends from all over the world since I've traveled quite a bit--over 40 nations and all of the U.S. Places became special when I was able to get to know 'locals'. My hope is that I can extend that personal hospitality to people who stay in our home and make some new friends!

Deborah purchased this house in 1972

Why Deborah chose Boca Raton

Our family began coming to Florida in 1951 from Cleveland where my father was a builder. When my parents were finally able to move here, my dad often said he felt he had died and gone to heaven.

When they purchased this property in 1972, it was and remains one of the most prime locations in Boca Raton. It's only several blocks from the prestigious Boca Raton Hotel--destination of the rich and famous for decades and in such an exclusive, beachside neighborhood! My parents left the home to me and now it means a lot to me to share it with others so they too can make some wonderful family memories in it, as we have been fortunate to do.

What makes this house unique

We have the best neighbors and even a neighborhood picnic yearly! Our home is located on an island that makes it so quaint, private and safe, even though it's just steps from the beach. We love the French style windows that we leave open most of the year to enjoy the fresh ocean breeze or, in the summer, we use our central AC and a dip in the refreshing pool. We pretty much live outside on the porch with a dining table, barbecue, lounges and quaint wicker furniture. The gazebo is a romantic little space to share as well. My dad caught the large sailfish that's mounted on the wall. We have so many wonderful memories of our 30+ years of living in this home. We'd love to share it with your family to make your own!

Super, super, super.

Great house, Just so Florida! The house is plenty large and comfortable. We walked to the beach twice using the wagon Deborah provided, easy. We spend two afternoons in the pool/patio which is perfect. My daughter even befriended a lizard that kept coming to say hi. Just a great time and we will stay there again.

Lovely welcoming home, great location, great owner

  • 5 of 5

We truly appreciate the owner opening her home to us. We really enjoyed our stay in this home in an excellent location. We rode bikes in the nice area and walked on the beach which is very close to the home. The home was immaculate when we arrived and we really appreciate the preparedness. We hope to enjoy another stay soon in this home in a wonderful spot in Boca Raton.

Owner's Response: What a lovely family--treated my home like their own and left it so clean, which I don't require, nor expect but I sure appreciate it since they brought 3 large dogs. Love it when my guests enjoy more of the amenities, taking advantage of our pristine beach just steps away. Or hop on the bikes to tour the quiet neighborhood, view the fabulous homes, visit a nearby restaurant, Mizner Park or Gumbo Limbo Nature Center to see the baby turtles. I know my guests are making unforgettable, unique memories with their families here, as we have with mine, and that aroma of love and laughter lingers long after.

Owner's Response: There are many fun areas around our quiet neighborhood--the biking is great here and along the bike path to Delray and Deerfield as well as up to Gumbo Limbo Nature Center which has live, rescued turtles and tanks with all the local ocean fish. A couple of miles up A1A you can bike on the forest paths in Spanish River Park. Rentable beach cabanas are a great new feature at "our" beach, Red Reef Park, which is across from our neighborhood. Strolling along the new boardwalks that stretch along the beach is an added treat. There's usually a volleyball game at the beach just south of us with a Pavilion and yoga classes, seaside. There's great playground for the younger children there as well.

The best place in Boca to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying at this home every year for over 8 years now. We absolutely love it. It is our favourite place in Boca to stay. It is just a few minutes walk from the beach, the house has everything you could possibly ever want, including a fabulous pool to cool off in. Not only is it close to the beach, but the beach is great at this spot. Deborah, the owner is fantastic and very good to deal with as well. She goes out of the way to make sure we are happy and is incredibly nice. She really cares about her renters and is a pleasure to deal with. We just love this place and look forward to coming every year! Highly recommended!

Owner's Response: Love it when my guests come back year after year--feels like family, as these renters have become. I look forward to welcoming these faithful guests back to my home--their "home away from home". I hope I can give other visitors a WOW experience--it's great when they get spoiled and don't want the ordinary experience anymore. My home is in one of the best neighborhoods in Boca. Come visit!

Home sweet home!!!

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't have asked for a more perfect stay! I mean she provided everything from toy's for the kids to play in the pool to a washer, dryer, spoons, forks, knifes, towels, two sets of golf clubs, plates, cups. I mean you name it she has it and as far as location hands down the best its a secluded area one way in one way out. It's 10min from the grocery store, 25min from Deerfield beach 40min from fort Lauderdale beach. My family and I had a blast I would definitely recommended to anyone or I should say I already recommended it to my coworkers and my family. As far as hospitality sweetest lady you could meet attentive if you have any issues or concerns she will correct it promptly. One thing she does ask for and in my eyes is nothing leave her property the way it was clean. I'm sure everyone or most of us could agree on that someone goes to your house you would want them to clean their own mess our family is already planning our second stay for next year minus the kids lol j/k. It definitely was a wounderful stay thanks a lot for everything Debohra we will talk in the near future.

The Godinez family.

Owner's Response: Great family--love to see wonderful parents like these making new vacation memories together with their 6 children. I sure appreciated how clean they left my home --although, I don't ask nor expect that my guests clean the home before leaving. I know that many are catching flights or leaving early in the morning, so that wouldn't be realistic. It was so kind that they did much of their laundry which was a great help with 8 in their party and I look forward to welcoming them again! I've traveled to over 40 nations and I was a hotel general manager at a high end lodging on Deerfield Beach for 17 years so I know the level of cleanliness and amenities that help my honored guests feel "at home" away from home. I hope I get to host more families like these!
