Why Ken Schulman chose La Hacienda

Location, location and a big beautiful heated salt water swimming pool. The main house and guest house share 1/3 acre of old Florida lush beauty. It is a quiet little community of 2 streets known as La Hacienda founded in 1928. Anyone renting our guest house will have everything they need for a wonderful, comfortable vacation. Recent French tenants have told us it reminds them of Provence.

Paradise by the Sea in Delray Beach, Fl.

  • 5 of 5

My brother came down from the Jersey Shore and wanted a place with a private pool. The Cottage in La Hacienda Neighborhood was perfect. Clean with plenty of room to move around. The kitchen had everything, including condiments. The Bahama sofa beds in the living room were comfortable for sleeping. Central air is a plus -- no noisy window units. Ken and Esther are terrific hosts -- cool people to hang-out with. But we had the place to ourselves. The last week in May was rainy off and on. But that didn't stop us from using the pool. Ken turned on the pool heater and spa jets at the deep end where there's a bench in the water. Skinnydipping at midnight in the light rain -- it's an experience! Check out all the interesting art work mixed-in with all the colorful plants, flowers and trees surrounding the pool. Like the Pelican with a fish in his mouth. The outdoor shower is on the back wall of the cottage -- private and shady with an overhang from the roof and tall areca palms creating an umbrella effect. If you need to know the time, there's a clock outside on the back wall of the house, by the pool. Nice touch! My brother Tom says: "We're definitely coming back here!"

Wonderful cottage, wonderful hosts

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful 4 nights here. First off, the landscaping is beautiful. The cottage itself was perfect. Plenty of room and plenty of character . We only used the kitchen for cooking breakfast but it was very well arranged and equipped. The mattress was great. We had plenty of water pressure. We were grateful for the washer and dryer. The televisions were easy to operate. Lastly, our hosts were great. Let me tell you: if they recommend a restaurant, listen to them! They were spot-on every time.

Little Cottage, Big Pool

  • 5 of 5

This guest house is great value for Delray Beach. The pool, shared with the owners next door, is heated and gorgeous with plenty of outdoor space for lounging. The quaint little 1 BR cottage was big enough for our family of four. The kids slept comfortably on daybeds in the living room. A large walk-in closet and laundry room provide extra space to stash luggage. The hosts are right next door if you need anything. Ken was very helpful with suggestions on things to do around town--highly recommend the mini golf and the Wakadohatchee Nature Reserve. The only downside was some noise from the train. Not conversation-stopping like it can be in downtown Delray, but noticeable.

Amazing vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

First time in Delray Beach, and what a great experience! The area and the town have definitely become top Florida destination for me. This cozy, charming cottage has made our stay really memorable! Very clean, plenty of space, great location, and a private swimming pool!!!! My 6 yr old son spent hours in the pool, didn’t even want to go to the beach anymore!

Thank you Ken and Esther for your hospitality, you made our stay more than enjoyable!

Will definitely be back!!

Our Stay at a Delray Beacg Cottage

  • 2 of 5

We wanted to get away from the cold winter this year so we rented this cottage. It was ok, but barely ok.

The hosts gave very good advice about dining and interesting places to visit.

Other goods points were the pool (very good), the kitchen, the bedroom, and the adjacent laundry room.

The negative points were the inadequate, intermittent, and unreliable wifi, the unsafe glass tabletop in the dining area, and the fact that when we arrived the hot water heater was shot, a fact the owners knew, and was only replaced when we said we could not stay there without hot water. The cottage cannot really sleep more than two people, even though technically there are two day beds. It's too small and uncomfortable for more than two people.

Another feature that should be mentioned is that the cottage is filled with many antique-type items. It's like a little museum in that regard. If that's something one likes, fine. If not, it can get old.

Owner's Response: Within the first week they had messed up our televisions more than once broken a glass table That they placed a very heavy bouquet on and tipped it.He bled on the floors and furniture as well as the sheets and stained them. Their last week they broke another item and didn’t offer to pay for it as well as breaking the toilet seat. They were not people we would like to see returning. After 35 five star rentals it is obvious that the problem was them. They did more damage to our property in one week then all the other rentals combined in five years.
