About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

** I've reduced the rate for the rest of the year. Our neighborhood is getting a facelift, which could cause some temporary inconveniences, so I've adjusted the rate to account for that possibility. If you're the kind of person who can be flexible and go with the flow, then you can enjoy a great rate during these dates! **

Bring your boat to this adorable and peaceful Florida vacation rental cottage, dock in its private slip and walk steps to this bright, sparkling clean home in an intracoastal neighborhood! Easy access to the Atlantic Ocean in minutes via the Boynton Beach Inlet. And, remember to bring your pup too...we're very dog-friendly and live in a dog-loving neighborhood.

Enjoy a peaceful stroll down our sailboat-lined streets. Let the sun warm you while balmy breezes blow at your back and seagulls circle overhead. Drift off in complete relaxation to the sounds of the gentle roll of waves from the wake of a passing boat, palm fronds dragging lazily across the bright white tiled roof and the buzz of a plane pulling a banner for frozen drinks at the Banana Boat! In the evening, open up the doors leading to the patio, dim the lights and let the salty breeze in while you enjoy very private, candlelit al fresco dining!

If you're arriving by plane, Palm Beach International Airport is conveniently located a brief 15 minute drive, or opt for the slightly longer, but oh-so-worth-it scenic route along beautiful A1A and the stunning South Palm Beach oceanfront coastline.

Visit our quaint downtown, where you can enjoy dockside dining along the intracoastal. And don't forget the beach...two beaches within one mile and three miles, less than five minutes by car, less than 15 by bike!

Within a twenty minute drive are loads of other activities. To the north, there's downtown West Palm Beach and Cityplace, an outdoor shopping and dining area designed in the style of old-world architecture, centered around a palladium and beautiful large fountains where live musical performances are hosted.

Fantastic shopping, sidewalk cafes, great dining, wine and martini bars, the Improv Comedy Club, a 20-screen stadium-seat movie theatre, and the Harriet for the classical and jazz music enthusiast are also available. To the south is Delray Beach and Atlantic Avenue. Go at night and window-shop, enjoy a fantastic dinner and stroll down the avenue in search of live music.

These are just some of the amenities the Palm Beach County area offers. In addition there's fishing, diving, snorkeling, golf (we're often referred to as 'the golf capital of the world), tennis, museums, opera, theatre, water sports, the zoo, etc.

And our little cottage is in the center of it all!

About Lisa

I'm a native Floridian...a rare breed! I spend part of the year in Georgia, but my heart is always in southeast Florida. I've got sand in my shoes.

Lisa purchased this house in 1998

Why Lisa chose Boynton Beach

I bought this home because I was looking for a place that would bring peace and tranquility to our everyday life. This home helps me to fulfill one of my personal always live life like I'm on vacation! You can't help but relax here with the palm trees, the salty air, ocean breezes and boats going by on the intracoastal.

What makes this house unique

In addition to all of the above, I love sitting on the dock and watching for manatees, having an al fresco dinner on the patio, relaxing in the yard on a sunny day listening to wild parrots and small planes pulling banners flying overhead. We enjoy having a waterfront dinner at Two Georges. I keep a beach chair in my car and head to the beach every night to listen to and watch the surf and wait for the sun to set.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great Vacation Home

This home was fantastic. It was immaculately kept and beautifully appointed. It is in a beautiful and safe neighborhood in Boynton Beach. The owners were always pleasant to deal with and they provided so many thoughtful little touches to make sure their guests had everything they could need.

A delightful time and a very nice home!

  • 4 of 5

Lisa was a very gracious and accommodating host. We never had any trouble contacting her and she always responded promptly.

Her home is bright, spacious and was very clean when we arrived. The kitchen is well equipped and had everything we needed.

Why 4 stars instead of 5...? The lawn in the back of the house was in really rough shape and missing slats in the fence made it risky to let our small dog to roam freely.

Otherwise, we had a great time and a positive experience.

By the way, the immediate neighborhood is quite nice and very dog friendly.

What an amazing vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

Lisa was a most gracious host to my family, this wonderful home gave all of the comforts of being home in a great vacation setting. Which had all of the pleasant sea smell and marina life almost outside the front door. Wonderful water front dining and shops with in walking distance. This is a hidden piece of heaven.

We will only hope this gem is available on our next trip to South Florida.

House was a disaster

  • 1 of 5

I would have given this house ZERO stars if that option were available, but it's not, so I had to give it one star. This house looks adorable in the photos, but the photos must be quite old, as it does NOT look the same in-person!

The neighborhood is sketchy, the house smelled of smoke and dirty pets, the blinds were broken, there are no screens in the sliders, so we couldn't open them to try to air it out, and it just is not up to the standards we were led to believe it would be.

Worst of all, when we arrived on Saturday, there was NO running water! We contacted the owner and she said her caretaker would be over first thing the next morning to fix it. We were left with no place to stay and had to find a hotel on VERY SHORT NOTICE ON A HOLIDAY WEEKEND! The water was not fixed until after noon the next day, so by this time, having heard nothing from the owner, we had to commit to ANOTHER night in a hotel. Because of the holiday, those two hotel nights cost us nearly as much as the rental week! After this, we gave up and simply went home. The entire ordeal was a disaster!!

The owner should have offered to reimburse us the ENTIRE amount of our stay right from the start, but instead, merely offered to "contribute towards our hotel" for the first night. This was COMPLETELY UNACCEPTABLE AND UNPROFESSIONAL and not at all what we are accustomed to from a Homeaway rental.

Owner's Response: Almost everything in this review is a complete fabrication. I had some dates open up on my calendar unexpectedly and reserved this stay with the wife on short notice. It was explained to me that she and her husband had planned on staying at a friend's home, but the house became unavailable at the last minute. I only heard from the husband once this couple arrived. He was filled with unsubstantiated complaints and made threats. He was very unreasonable and difficult with which to communicate. I had other guests depart earlier on the day of their arrival and had the house cleaned and ready on the same day. The departing guests had no complaints. The cleaning crew had no challenges with the water supply to the home and no concerns to which I needed to be alerted. Following these guests' scheduled departure I had repeat guests arrive who have had no complaints. This guest (the husband) threatened that if I did not refund the entire cost of his stay, he would leave a bad review on this site and "ruin my good reputation as a vacation rental home owner." I guess this is his attempt to make good on that promise.

Plan to stay here again!

  • 5 of 5

What a great house! It was just me and my sister, but a family could easily stay here. We found it to be clean and roomy. With two separate sitting areas the kids can be watching TV in one room while you read in another. Having a grill to use was nice and I enjoyed coffee on the patio in the mornings. We felt very much at home here. We watched fireworks from the dock. The king size master bed was very comfortable. The neighbours that we met were friendly. If there is a drawback it's that you have to drive to everything, but it's all close by. A pool would have been nice but the the beach is very close and beautiful. Good dining and happy hour at Banana Boat about 2 minutes away. Lisa was very accessible to address any questions we had. I would happily stay here again.

The Best

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had the best time in this house. We brought our two dogs that are usually cooped up in a small apartment. They ran and played and chased each other around the back yard. They learned very quickly to stand by the garage door when they wanted to go out which was a lot. The neighbors new the owner and they were very friendly to us. We live in a very noisy area so this quiet neighborhood was perfect for us. It was convenient to stores and shopping within mins by car. The breeze off the water at night was refreshing. The kitchen has a lot of the things one might need like coffee filters, condiments, cookware etc. We hope to go back again next year.
