About Geraud Lecerf

Currently living in Toronto and after just one visit to Palm Beach, Casa Palma just had to be ours to share!


Geraud Lecerf purchased this house in 2013

Why Geraud Lecerf chose West Palm Beach

First off Casa Palma is simply gorgeous then the El Cid neighborhood is fabulous and Palm Beach has the most beautiful clear water of all of Southeast Florida plus during the peak season Palm Beach still feels like a quaint little Oceanside Gem but with it's world renown 'Worth Avenue' shopping at your finger tips. The area restaurants are amazing offering some of the finest formal dining in the country or the most casual 'flip flops and T-Shirt' waterfront watering holes in existence.

What makes this house unique

The weather is truly stunning. From the moment you arrive you will feel the healthy effects of the Sun's warm rays, the Atlantic ocean's amazing deep blue waters and it's exotic tropical breeze.

We rented this house for the month of March 2016. We have been to WPB before so were really looking forward to this holiday. The property is in a nice neighbourhood and is close to amenities. It is clean. However, for the premium price paid, it does not represent good value. The pool is old and needs work. The skimmer leaks and the hot tub is not run separately and therefore is just an extension of the pool. Outdoor lights are burnt out, the garage door opener doesn't work, the beach umbrella is broken, one of the bikes had a flat tire, the patio roof leaks, the surround sound system doesn't work properly. We asked for a Teflon frying pan and the property manager bought a set at the dollar store. The toilet paper holder in the bathroom was broken by the housekeeper and the property manager didn't bother fixing it while we were there. While we were there the air conditioner was broken and the toilet was leaking (both were repaired).

Also, while we paid a $1,000 security deposit in U.S. funds in good faith and were told we would get a full refund, the refund was provided in Canadian dollars that did not convert to $1,000 U.S.. We lost about $50 in the conversion.

It's really too bad. This property has a lot of potential but needs many repairs and upgrades to warrant the rent being asked for.

Great neighborhood and very nice property

  • 5 of 5

All aspects of the house were terrific: the decoration was very tasteful, the bedding awesome, the garden and the pool were very well maintained. We were very close to some of the finest restaurants we've ever been to. We've enjoyed walking in the neighborhood withoout being that far from the beaches and the OKEEHEELEE park.

We will definitely come back one day.

We had a wonderful stay at the house. Steve (the manager) and Max (the pool man) were very courteous and responsive. The house was immaculate, well stocked (dishes/linens/towels/bikes) etc. and comfy. The heated pool and hot tub were heaven. We enjoyed the neighborhood. We would recommend this house without reservation.

We found this house exactly what we hoped it would be. The location was ideal, the house is fully renovated and decorated with the right lack of clutter that's so common in other properties. Great kitchen and well equiped for an occasional home cooked meal. We loved walking around the neighborhood as well as enjoying the beautifully landscaped property that was our temporary home. Will visit again next year!
