Unique classic florida house, completely renovated and up to date. Photographed for several international magazines, the house is utterly comfortable, with lots of room for guests to spread out. This house has a very special ambiance, and those who have been here always want to come back.
There is a large deck with a tiki hut over looking the ocean. The beach is quiet, with no direct public access. The garden is secluded and private, with a manicured tropical garden.
We stayed at this beautiful home in February 2012 for one week with our family of five and at the end of the week all of us said we couldn't wait to go back. We rent homes everywhere we travel and have fairly high expectations. This home exceeded them. Here are some of the highlights:
--The deck and cabana on the beach is the only one like it on the entire stretch of this private piece of the ocean. We were able to have lunch and dinner right on the beach and spend all day relaxed while the kids played in the sand. We even hired a professional photographer to take photos of our family on the beach.
--The house was fully stocked with everything we could need.
--There are high end luxuries like an espresso machine with plenty of coffee pods; gorgeous, soft French linens; and huge fluffy white towels.
--There are two huge baskets filled with great beach towels and beach blankets.
--Every bed in the house is very comfortable.
--The kitchen and bathrooms are beautiful - all updated and high-end.
--The patio/pool area is ideal -- big table with comfortable chairs where everyone can sit together, a porch swing, outdoor couches and other seating.
The only slight downside was the location - we had to drive some distance to a Whole Foods and most of the restaurants we were interested in were located in Boca or Del Ray Beach. Nothing was exceptionally far but we did have to plan ahead for our outings. That said, we rarely left the house! It was too beautiful and relaxing.
We are so grateful to the owner for allowing us to borrow her piece of paradise for this short week. It was dreamlike. Thank you! We can't wait to come back.
