About Benita Goldstein

Jordan and I hail from Manhattan where we raised our daughter, Serena,who graduated medical school and is now a Naturopathic Doctor living in NYC.

For over 25 years we had owned a custom mirror and glass business working with the top Interior Designers there, the best of which is reflected in our rentals.

We discovered this village by the sea back in 2007 while taking my mother inlaw for a boatride on the beautiful delray yacht cruise ship. We rode through this little town and by the time we got to the intracoastal on Atlantic Avenue, we looked at each other, smiled and knew we had found our next home. Since moving here, I've been involved in organizations like the Woman's Club of Delray Beach founded in 1903 which raises money and gives it away to worthy causes. Jordan, my husband, now retired enjoys every breathing moment from taking yoga to chatting with our guests. Each day here feels like renewal.

Benita Goldstein purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Benita Goldstein chose Highland Park Delray

Delray Beach reminds us of being a Soho by the Sea full of eclectic restaurants, art, theater and a beautiful beach. What makes our place so special is that we were able to find a historic home with memories of Delray's very interesting past. From the family who built the house in 1923 with its now extinct dade county pine floors, we have embraced it all.

The best decision we ever made was having vacation rentals next door to share our dream. Some of our guests are now neighbors themselves having decided to move here as well.

What makes this cottage unique

Having a large property full of magnificent huge trees from mango to a frangiapane (looks like the hawaiian lei flower) adds to the serene beauty of the place.

We also love this location because it afforded us the privacy of a residential neighborhood where people really know one another to being a few blocks from the Ave(as we fondly refer to Atlantic Avenue--our main street). Some of our guests are now neighbors themselves having decided to move here as well.

Great apartment, Great Location and Great Owners

  • 5 of 5

I want to thank Benita and Jordan for their incredible hospitality and I will do my best to describe how wonderful the apartment is. I have never written a review in my life for anything but this definitely deserves to be my first. The apartment is flawless, comfortable and has every amenity to feel as if you were in your own home only with the fantastic additions of impeccable landscaping and a wonderful pool. The location is perfect and close to beach, bars and restaurant but secluded from the hustle and bustle. I would live in this apartment all year round if possible. Thanks again for everything and look forward to future stays.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This summer was our second stay in Jordan and Benita's apartment. What can I say? It's paradise! For a family vacation, it is simply THE best location. Everything you need is close. Many cities should inspire themselves from what Delray Beach has done with Atlantic Avenue. We intend in being loyal customers for many years. Benita is so nice and thoughtful. Can't wait for next time!

Great first accommodation in Florida

  • 5 of 5

The stay at your apartment was great! I love what you have done with the back yard and have used the pool to get in shape and swim some laps … even had a mango or two that had fallen into the pool …

Thank you again for great first accommodation in Florida

Dream Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We love staying in this vacation rental for so many reasons. First, location. It's a 5 minute walk from Atlantic avenue and all the shops and restaurants and a 5 minute walk to the Publix and Walgreens. It's also walking distance to the beach, or you can hop on the free trolley.

Second, the grounds are beautiful with a salt water lap pool and lush landscaping, feels like you're on a tropical island. When you're in the rental it does feel like a treehouse, very private, yet light-filled. Gourmet kitchen, top of the line bathrooms and well furnished bedrooms and living room, also has a lot of closet space. Last, but not least, the owners. Benita and Jordan are right next door and available to make sure you have everything you need. They're a wealth of information about the area; places to eat, things to do, etc. You always hear about owners who treat their guests like friends, well Benita and Jordan treat their guests like family. Only time we've been on vacation when we didn't want to leave, ever. We've been here 2 years in a row and already have reservations for next year.

Serene Oasis in the Heart of Delray Beach

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is a stunning, private retreat! We had the best of both worlds - privacy and a resort like feel, while being minutes away from Atlantic Ave and the beautiful public beaches. We have stayed here multiple times and have become more enamored with the accommodations and location with each stay. It is a 5 minute walk to all of the wonderful restaurants, shops, and art galleries on Atlantic Avenue and Pineapple Grove. Publix and Walgreens are a 5 minute walk away as well. The cottage is magnificent, you truly feel like you are "nestled in the trees." It is beautifully furnished, yet still comfortable. The custom kitchen and bathrooms are a pleasure, one bath has a steam shower and the other has a spa tub. There is a full size washer and dryer in the cottage. The back yard is amazing!! The 75 foot lap pool comes with multiple lounge spaces and tables with umbrellas for dining al fresco. The landscaping is beautiful and offers privacy and tranquility. The owners, Benita and Jordan, live next door and are more than accommodating to any needs or maintenance issues you may have. We would highly recommend this cottage for your next trip to Delray Beach!

Owner's Response: We originally built this cottage in the treetops for ourselves and so touched how people have loved it just as we have. Our goal with all our properties was to imagine how we would feel living there and give the best possible to our guests.

Last year Delray Beach was named MOST FUN SMALL TOWN IN AMERICA by the Travel Channel. That about says it all. Our property is in a beautiful residential area 2 blocks from the intracoastal great for walking and looking at beautiful architecture including our own historic home. Almost everything is within walking distance from restaurants to museums even our Arts Garage with music and plays.
