About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms with King sized beds. Sleeps 4.

This little cottage near the sea is an original 1950's home. It has been completely updated with modern conveniences, but is still quaint and charming taking you back to a simpler time in history. The 1,200 square foot cottage is very comfortable and clean.

It is tucked away on the the quiet side of US 1 in unincorporated Delray Beach. We are located 2.7 miles from Boynton Public Beach, 2 miles from Ocean Avenue Boat Docks, 3.4 miles from the Boynton Beach Inlet, 3.2 miles from Delray Public Beach, and 2 miles to all the shops and restaurants on the famous Atlantic Avenue.

All the theme park attractions in Orlando are a 3 hour drive. Miami Beach is a 1 hour drive. Fast food, grocery shopping, and drug stores are under 2 miles away.

Thanks for looking!

About Carol Landry

We are John & Carol Landry. We live in Texas and Florida. We have an adult daughter that is an ER nurse in Houston, Texas and a son at University of Florida studying Geology and Computer Science. We both grew up in Delray Beach, Florida.

Carol Landry purchased this house in 2009

Why Carol Landry chose Florida South East

Our original vacation cottage (now a full time rental right next door) has been in my family for many years. My father grew up in this house. When my grandmother passed away in 2005 my aunt inherited it and then we purchased it from her in 2007. We fully restored it and enjoyed staying at it every chance we got. In 2009 the house right next door went on the market and we purchased and renovated it. In April 2012 we transitioned the newest house to become the vacation house because it is more spacious, has central a/c and heat, and so our vacationer renters could enjoy a private pool.

What makes this house unique

We rarely venture West of I-95. We keep East of I-95, where it is quiet and rustic, reminiscent of Old Delray. Since Delray Beach IS the funnest small town in America, there is always something to do! Voted Most Fun small town in America 2012 by USA Today & Rand McNally.

Great get away

the pool was great, a little ways from the beach, but nice. Very clean, and real nice set up to just relax and enjoy the sunshine.

Delray Beach Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Our sincere thanks to Carol and John for our great February vacation in their charming Key West style cottage. We were pleasantly surprised with how roomy this little cottage was. We had our two pooches with us and it was very relaxing! Carol provided pretty much everything we needed including lots of detailed information about the whole Delray area. This Delray cottage was a little pinch of heaven!

Old World Florida cottage in the very best location!

  • 5 of 5

My dog and I spent the month of June at this delightful cottage. I had several family members come and go during this time and we were never hurting for space. The entire property is fenced and teeming with lush plants, flowers and palm trees. The pool was a very welcome addition on those hot, humid days. The garden shower was my favorite.....I never showered indoors once! Carol was just a text away and was very helpful with any questions I had. (They were few) The location was perfect for me. In less than 10 minutes, I could be at the beach, my parents, fishing, restaurants, and downtown Delray Beach. I was unable to pick bananas as they weren't ripe, but was fortunate enough to run into neighbors that had plenty of fresh Mango's to share :) The neighborhood used to be a Mango farm. If you are looking for ultra-modern, glass and metal, then this is not a rental for you. However, if you desire all the comforts of home, privacy, great location, and Key West flavor, then look no further. Thanks again Carol for a most memorable stay!

Awesome Oasis

  • 5 of 5

The Yellow Cottage by the Sea is darling! Nicely furnished, nicely decorated, the beds heavenly. The front yard has a wonderful pool which we spent many days floating in. The yard is its own tropical oasis - very private. Picked fresh bananas everyday. Love, love, love this place. Will be back next year. Atlantic Avenue is only 10 minutes away by car. Wonderful cafés, restaurants and shops.

Great house that is tucked away to make you feel like it's your own private hideaway. Plenty of places to sit and enjoy the sun, and cozy enough to sit inside and relax. There's a lot of doors which I wasn't used to but that in no way took away from the experience. Photos accurately portray the house. Amenities (which are plentiful) are better than described. Owner is quick to respond with any questions or about the payments. Downtown Delray and the beach are less than a 5 minute drive away. If you're looking for a quick get-away, look no further.
