Upon opening the door, this beach-house-stylized villa conveys, “welcome, you're on vacation in coastal south florida!”
This hillsboro beach villa resides on a private resort property that fully-spans hillsboro mile (a1a) from the atlantic ocean to the intracoastal waterway. Guests conveniently enjoy the distinct features of both the ocean and intracoastal waterfronts.

Within the resort property, this villa is located on the west half of the resort property adjacent to hillsboro mile. It is secluded from this road via lush tropical landscaping that also partially screens sight-lines to other resort guests on footpaths as they travel to and fro.
This villa is a compelling value, providing a very private and secluded experience for its guests. Guests often use its adjacent yard-area as an additional sunbathing option and for porch-side grilling. Grills are available upon request from the on-site management office.

This villa is one-half of a duplex of two identical 'mirror-image' units. The villa contains 1 bedroom w/ walk-in closet, 1 bathroom, galley kitchen with eating nook, living room, and a covered private-porch. 1950’s constructed 6+” solid-mortar walls provide superior sound insulation from the adjoining villa.
Villa furnishings are high-quality wicker-/rattan-framed with comfortable decorative cushions. Furnishings are accompanied by decorative lamps, the latest in led reading/task lights, and accented by a relaxing, fun array of original florida-themed artworks.
A fully equipped kitchen is meant to be used. Dimmable lighting, appliances, accessories, dishes and glassware provide variety and quality consistent with what guests would typically use entertaining in their own home.
The villa is fully air-conditioned, but also provides 3 interior ceiling fans for guests who prefer the fresh air scents of the ocean.
The king-size-bed mattress and box-spring are comparable in comfort and quality expected of 4&5-star hotels. An amazingly comfortable and easily movable blow-up bed is available if needed.
Monday-saturday daily maid service is provided for linens, towels and floor cleaning. Coin laundry facilities are available on both the west- and east-side of the resort property.
An often underestimated feature of this villa is its attached covered porch. This private-porch is more aptly described as a tropical room useful in nearly any weather condition. Shaded and outfitted with 2 cushioned porch chairs, table, lounge, side-table and a ceiling fan, the porch looks southeast onto flowering plantings and the early morning, noon and afternoon sunshine of south florida. Guests usually move their lounge to the porch side-yard to provide a highly convenient sunbathing option.
One wall of the porch is a 7’ tall solid-tri-fold wall/door system that divides it from the porch of the adjoining villa. That said, guests vacationing together in both duplex villas typically choose to unlatch this decorative divider to enjoin their porches. Speaking of which, SPECIAL OFFER -- If you rent BOTH villas V & W to accommodate a group gathering (both units are listed on HomeAway), please contact me with dates. During non-peak demand periods I offer additional discount if renting both villas.
Of note, this divider system was designed and manufactured to custom specifications by a company that produces similar products for augusta national golf club. A perfunctory afterthought it is not!
This unit is equipped with a high-performance sony entertainment system. Integrated sony components include: bravia 52” hd tv, blue ray dvd player, and home theater soundbar and woofer speaker system. Content is deliver to the entertainment system via comcast's hd digital package, upgraded to include premium movies and sports packages.
Beyond comcast… an in-house library of dvds is provided. For guests who want to enjoy their own digital libraries of music, movies, videos and photographs, the home theater system can be connected to guests’ i-phones or android devices via standard-wired connections, or paired via bluetooth wireless technology.
A dedicated parking space is provided a few steps from the villa backdoor, an underestimated convenience particularly for long-stay guests who plan to eat and entertain extensively in their villa and on the resort property.
Hi-speed wireless internet is provided at no additional charge so guests can conveniently remain connected to the outside world. That said…
This villa’s guests connect far more with one another, enjoyably losing track of time, days and weeks!
