The Orchid House is the Shangri La of our West Palm Beach Vacation Rentals and is appointed with tasteful furnishings, upscale amenities and beautiful artwork fills the walls of every room.

Before you booking, you will have a conversation with a real person (me). This is our East Coast home and I want you to ensure you as welcomed and comfortable as possible prior to booking and throughout your entire stay. Shortly after your arrival our personal concierge will stop by to make sure you are connected, settled, questions answered and everything meets or exceeds expectations.

Relax and enjoy the exquisite outdoor South Florida weather. The beautiful salt water pool and private backyard is surrounded by hundreds of orchids that bloom continually throughout the year. Take advantage of the private outdoor living area and dining with seating available for up to eight.

The main house boasts a top of the line chef's kitchen with breakfast bar, a dining room that seats six comfortably, large living room and a separate tropical media room with a large 65 inch HDTV with access to cable. There are two bedroom suites. One is downstairs with a king bed, flat screen TV and sitting area that leads directly to the outside living area and pool. The second bedroom is upstairs with a queen bed and flat screen TV. Both feature luxury en-suite marble baths. There is an additional marble powder room on the first floor for guests. Every room is graced with beautiful artwork, making it a bonus for those interested in fine art. A home for the discerning traveler as you will not find a better place to fully and completely enjoy your time away.

For additional guests wanting a little more privacy, the detached guest cottage is 600 sq. ft. and sleeps for another 2-4. There is a private bedroom suite with king bed overlooking the pool, full bathroom and walk in closet. The sofa in the living room folds down to a queen size bed. The cottage has its own complete kitchen and dining for 4. This is the perfect place for ultimate privacy.

Location, location, location! City Place, boasting over 50 shops, movie theater, restaurants and entertainment is a short walk from the home. Dixie Hwy, located nearby, is home to some of the best restaurants in Palm Beach County and "Antique Row" home to the top antique shops in South Florida. For those preferring to dine in, Publix has opened a brand-new grocery store just a few blocks away and Whole Foods is located in the Palm Beach Outlets Plaza, only a 10 minute drive north off I-95.

Cozy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

House was perfect for our three generation trip. My son's young family of five stayed in the pool cottage, my daughter and husband had the whole upstairs to themselves, while my husband and I had the huge master. The weather wasn't the best but the pool was so warm my grandchildren spent hours swimming. For the cost of one hotel room we had a roomy house to hang out with the family. The home was generously stocked when we got here. All of the basic supplies I purchased when I landed were already here. SAMM was a wonderful concierge and was here to welcome us. I highly recommend this home for anyone lucky enough to stay here!

Impressive home and concierge

  • 5 of 5

Booking and some additional people added were responded to with enthusiasm. Home was found to be very clean and very well stocked. Beds were very comfortable and linens clean and fresh. The pool house added an additional level to our satisfaction. The pool was clean and warm and a pleasure to have as it was below freezing in New York. Samm, the property manager was polite, informative and extremely friendly. The house is very close to the Convention Center and the central part of town.

I would highly recommend this home to all

Thanks Robert and Samm

Quiet City Getaway

  • 4 of 5

We rented this home for about a week and found ourselves choosing to stay at home rather than an activity we had planned. Nice pool area was a favorite at the home as it was noticeably cooler in the heat of the day because of all the greenary surrounding the area. We would stay again!

Long Weekend Getaway for Sunfest

  • 5 of 5

Recently spent 5 days in the rental and we loved it, the house is a $7 uber ride to Clamatis Street. The house had all the comforts of home and was very comfortable. We were able to BBQ and have access to a full spread of dishes, silverware and glasses. The house was a perfect fit for the 5 of us, my only regret is that I should have stayed in the pool house, sleeping in there right next to the pool seemed so relaxing. We will for sure be staying here again next time we come to WPB.
