Oceanfront Loft Overlooking The Atlantic And In The Heart Of Delray Beach

Bedrooms 1
Space 500 sq. ft.
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2

A great hide away with very private deck overlooking the Atlantic and the wonderful beach of Delray. This penthouse is in a small complex on the third floor in the heart of the fun of Delray Beach. Sunrises and moonrises are spectacular and you will fall in love with this spot that feels like a custom land yacht. This is a three story walk up and worth every step! I lived here for a number of years myself and can say those early morning beach walks and late night moonrise views from the deck or bed are hard to beat!

About Matt Gracey

I'm a native of Delray Beach and in my own business that has grown to be statewide.

Matt Gracey purchased this condo in 1985

Why Matt Gracey chose Delray Beach

I'm a native beach and surfer sailing kid (despite my age) from Delray and bought the whole complex years ago as my first real estate renovation project and have kept this unit ever since because it is so special. I have just begun to rent it short term again after decades of it being used by family and friends.

What makes this condo unique

This is as close to sailing as you get on land!

Magical Place in Delray

  • 5 of 5

I was attracted to this unit by the photos and location, and I was blown away from the minute I arrived. The loft is more beautiful than the photos capture and so well maintained. Every amenity that I needed was available, the owner Matt went out of his way to assist me with my needs and was wonderful helping me make our arrang,nets. The bedroom I felt was a magical place to relax and the bed extremely comfortable. It was hard to pull myself out the stone shower walls. I started my days watching the sunrise over the ocean. I truly recommend this unit to anyone looking for a intimate cozy spot to relax away from the hussle of Delay. The beach is directly across the street, with 2 chairs and unbrella waiting for you. As it said, I felt it was magical place to unwind and enjoy my time away. You will not be disappointed.

The PERFECT spot!

  • 5 of 5

You couldn't ask for a better location, right across from beach and half block from Atlantic Ave. No need for a car, walking distance to EVERYWHERE.

The loft is cute and very romantic (the pictures don't do it justice). The porch is amazing both by day and night: Sunbathing, intimate meals, clay stove for fires and fantastic view.

The unit has all you need with adorable kitchen and clean stone bath. Beach passes save you $40 a day for the a nice set up.

Both Matt and Mason were gracious and considerate to our needs (if we ever had any:)

I've traveled all over the world and this unusual, but perfect place is definitely a diamond in the rough.

Excellent experience all around

  • 5 of 5

I stayed this past winter for 3 months in this awesome condo across the street from the beach. The location is great for access to Atlantic Ave and all that has to offer as well the beach with the included beach club membership. The place is very comfortable and modern and has all modern amenities. The photos do a great job of showing exactly what it is like. Matt met me at the rental unit and his on-site property manager was always helpful as well. Delray Beach is great and this was a perfect place to enjoy it.

Delray Beach,
Car: not necessary

The Loft is a very special spot...small, unique one bedroom with a long private deck overlooking the ocean and built out like a fine yacht. Really wonderful spot for one couple who loves the beach, fine dining within walking distance, and a unique hide away right in the middle of the action of Atlantic Avenue. Use the Loft's beach cabana with lounge chairs, wind block and umbrella or walk about a quarter of a mile down the beach to rent a Hobie Cat or tons of other beach toys. Or you might choose to walk downtown to world class theater, music, and lectures, or to an active arts community event. Or you might drive directly west for an airboat tour of the Everglades or a stroll through the Morikami's gardens and museums. South Beach is only an hour south, or see a Miami Heat or Dolphin's game even closer than South Beach. The thirty minute drive to Palm Beach along AIA viewing the oceanfront mansions of the rich and famous is also a fun getaway but beware of your credit card limit once you hit the famed Worth Avenue where the shopping is way above average.
