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.

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).
