About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Full Bathrooms Including Master Ensuite, Sleeps 6

Very Private & Charming tropically landscaped getaway home centrally located just off South Florida's Antique Row in West Palm and just minutes from the pristine beaches of the Atlantic Ocean in Palm Beach, the airport, downtown West Palm, Art Galleries, Worth Avenue, Golf, Deep Sea Fishing, Malls and Fine Restaurants etc.

This tastefully decorated house is very comfortable in every way and beautifully appointed. The modern kitchen is completely equipped. A magnificent dining table accomodates 10 should you desire to host dinner. Each bedroom is an oasis in itself. The lush landscaping is simply gorgeous. The salt water pool is to die for. The beautiful sandy beaches of the Atlantic are just minutes away.

El Cortijo is located just off Dixie south of Belvedere Road and north of Southern Boulevard and a short walk from the lake.

The airport is a mile west, the ocean is less than a mile east, and downtown/City Place is a mile to the north. Interstate 95 is nearby using either Southern or Belvedere. Flagler Museum is close by as is The Breakers and Norton Gallery, Palm Beach Zoo, Singer Island, Disney 2 hours away.

All in all a great location and oh so very private!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Lee,

I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay at your home. We had such a wonderful time! We had sunshine everyday and temps in the 70's which was great considering we still have snow and cold temps here. Your place is beautiful and so comfortable. We loved the backyard. We ate breakfast out by the pool every morning.

You really do a great job of providing everything in the house that your guests could possibly need. It was certainly the most well equipped place we have stayed at. The guide to West Palm was also very helpful to us. We referred to it many times, and we enjoyed all of the things that we visited. It is a beautiful area and we had a great time!

Thanks so much for everything!!

A perfect place for our family gathering!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this lovely little self-contained oasis to be able to spend time with my step-daughter and her new baby, and our son and his girlfriend. It was the perfect setting for this! I enjoyed my morning walks at the wall along the water, just a few blocks from the house. It was a short drive to the beach or downtown West Palm Beach, where we enjoyed City Place and it's restaurants/shopping. The house is very well stocked with household items, towels, paper products, etc. The pool is wonderful, and we spent quite a bit of time in it. The separate master bedroom suite gave us privacy while the "kids" stayed in the other two equally beautiful bedrooms....Lee was very attentive, keeping in touch right up to and including our vacation week. The entire family gave everything a big "thumbs up" - we may very well be back!

Love it!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Lee and David's property from July 1-11. We were in the area for a soccer tournament that was being held in libertyville. We wanted a location closer to the beach so after extensive research we chose this house. We weren't disappointed! The house is very lovely and equipped with so many things that come in useful and handy. We definitely took advantage of the coolers that were provided as there were some very hot the days while we were there (one game got cancelled cause her index was over 106) and we filled both coolers with beverages for the soccer games that lasted all day. We didn't get to spend a lot of time at the house, as we had many days at soccer and took a short trip to Disney world. The time we did spend there though was spent in the pool most the time. Our 6 year old absolutely loved it. We bought him a life jacket (as he hasn't taken swim lessons) and we let him go :) though we don't have a baby it is well equipped for one of those too with a highchair and pack n play. We did go to the store before checking the place out and got paper towels and toilet paper yet they were already provided. That and we bought fans cause we sleep with the fan noise and there was also one of those in the master bedroom so we didn't really need it. We enjoyed our stay very much just wish we woulda had more free time to take advantage of all there was to offer and enjoy it even more! Beach is 10 minutes away and we personally preferred the lake worth one over the west palm beach one (though we only drove by the west palm beach and never really hit the sand). There are plenty of beach towels provided to utilize at the house as well. The place is well taken care of as we were there they came and took care of the trees and bushes, they cleaned and took care of the pool and they came and sprayed for bugs :) I contacted the owners twice while there and got immediate response from themboth times. Thank you Lee and David for providing us with a lovely home to stay in!!

We are very pleased to have fulfilled our commitment to you as we try to do with all our guests, Thank you again! We hope someday you will return -- and maybe it will be a little less hot next time. With best wishes, David and Lee

Fantastic rental for the perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and daughter decided to spend a week in West Palm Beach. David and Lee's property was perfect! It was exactly as described..lush tropical paradise! We enjoyed the pool so much, we didn't feel the need to visit the beach! Nightly swimming in this perfect salt water pool was our favorite activity! We grilled every night and enjoyed the outdoors and ambiance immensely! David and Lee were in constant contact and we plan to book this home again for our next WPB vacation. Can't say enough about this property! Beautiful home with plenty of space!

Owner's Response: Dear Donna and Family, It was a pleasure all along and we are delighted that you were so happy. You're right about the house being roomy. And the salt water pool sure IS fantastic. So many guests say they skip the beach cuz they enjoy being 'at home' at El Cortijo! We hope you'll come again! With best wishes always, David and Lee
