Romantic, private, secluded and yet a short walk to the pristine beach of Delray and its lively restaurants, boutiques and music, this luxurious 2 bedroom 1 1/2 bath villa offers a high quality beach vacation experience. The villa has Italian terrazzo floors throughout and boast a private resort style pool with king-sized South Beach canopy sunbed and deluxe white and aqua loungers. The meticulously maintained, professionally landscaped, tropical garden is completely enclosed by an 8-foot privacy fence creating a feeling of total luxury.
In the front of the villa, Adirondack chairs greet you on the front porch, perfect for morning coffee and reading The New York Times or the Palm Beach Post or watching the moon rise over the trees. Custom lighting showcases the clean white lines of the home, which has never been rented and was renovated in 2012 by a real estate professional who lived in it himself. All of the windows are hurricane rated, impact glass for total soundproofing as well as safety. The only exception to the cushion of quiet is the pitter-patter of raindrops on the cathedral ceiling, making any rainstorm a treat to be savored from the king size bed in the master bedroom or the comfy white, slipcovered sofa in the living room, snuggled in with a good book.
In the living room, along with the white slipcovered sofa, there are two seagrass contemporary chairs to sink into, a new gray weathered wicker chair nestled near the front window to curl up in, and a Samsung flatscreen/Smart TV with premium cable, BluRay and Samsung surround sound to watch Netflix movies or other Internet and cable entertainment. Crowning the living room cathedral ceiling is a contemporary chandelier with elegant polished chrome and clean white silk shades on a dimmer for bright light or softly lit ambience.
The master bedroom offers a king size pillow top luxury mattress and new Paula Deen bed in dark rich finish. Seagrass nightstand and coastal decor remind you that you are waking up at the beach. The master bedroom closet is fully organized and built out for easy access to bed linens and clothes...and speaking of bed linens...satin quilt and high quality sheets make you feel like you are in a five star resort. The second bedroom has a queen size pillow top mattress on a romantic canopy bed with a view of the pool and two matching floor to ceiling closets for bathing suits, shorts and sun dresses for daytime shopping and nighttime dining. The queen canopy bed is outfitted with light all-cotton quilts and luxury sheets to envelop you in comfort.
The bathroom suite is perfectly designed for privacy and functionality with a vanity and toilet adjoining each bedroom, leading into a double-sized shower with custom tile and pebble floor. Bed linens, bath and beach towels are provided to guests.
Relax in the outdoor living area with new South Beach style furniture and 50' Sony flatscreen TV wall mounted for sporting events or movies with premium cable. Gaze out at the 10,000-gallon saltwater pool. Enjoy cocktails for two poolside on the teak table set or entertain friends on the long elegant white table for backyard steaks on the grill among the twinkling lights in the trees and custom outdoor lighting.
Inside, the fully equipped kitchen opens to the outdoor living area and to the indoor living room. The kitchen is South Beach inspired with modern glass cabinets and black granite, with aqua backsplash accented by a modern, contemporary chandelier.
There is off street parking for two cars, but why drive when you can use the Delray Downtowner? This free shuttle service to and from the vivacious Delray downtown area and the nearby beaches will pick you up at your doorstep, just call for a pick up. This lavish home is centrally located with bike rentals a few blocks away, grocery shopping, pharmacy and liquor store are all within walking distance.
Rent both of our villas for your family reunion or special trip with friends. They are adjoining villas, each with its own private pool, but they can be opened so that your family or friends can flow from one to the other.
Additional amenities include five burner gas grill for outdoor entertaining, beach umbrella and plush lounge chairs for beach use, plus deluxe beach cabana chair rental complimentary to our guests. Our villa is pet friendly unlike most luxury properties, with some restrictions and appropriate deposit.
Why choose Delray Beach?
When you stay in the “Village by the Sea,” you will instantly feel the warm and friendly atmosphere that makes downtown Delray Beach such a joy to visit.
Delray Beach’s art district boasts a vibrant, bustling art scene in its trendy downtown with almost 30 galleries, an artists alley and two live theaters in walking distance from the villa. Come “downtown” and do one of the monthly artwalks, meet the shopkeepers and the entire community known as a Sociable City and recently awarded 'Best of the Road - Most Fun Small Town in America' by Rand McNally & USA Today.
There is certainly no shortage of things to do in Delray. Whether you're into extreme sports or wine tasting, there literally is something for everyone. With over 110 restaurants, 52 spas & salons and 50 retail shops and boutiques, you have plenty of choices for the days you don’t want to bask on the beach or by your own pool. The Delray Saturday farmers market, regular street festivals and clean, elegant public beach make this walking village unlike most places in Florida or other beach towns in the U.S. Come visit and see why a Delray Beach vacation is the way the beach was meant to be.

Why Delray Beach? Why not Miami or West Palm or Ft. Lauderdale or Singer Island? Delray Beach is an idyllic seaside village with many attractions that offer a variety of things to do, many of which are described below. But in addition, Delray Beach is ideally located just north of Boca Raton, 20 minutes from Ft. Lauderdale and an hour north of Miami. It is 20 minutes south of West Palm and Palm Beach, with lots to do in all places. You can have breakfast or lunch in South Beach and stroll the promenade of Lincoln Road shops or hit the design district in Miami for new decor ideas. Ft. Lauderdale has great live music and lots of sidewalk cafes, and great happy hours. Boca has Mizner Park, with entertainment and sidewalk cafe restaurants, be sure to take your Lexus and valet park for free.
Casino entertainment is just west of there, with headline acts and gambling to your heart's content. The BB&T Center in Ft. Lauderdale boasts national entertainers and rock bands like Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band or Katy Perry. Florida Atlantic University gets first rate national speakers like former President Bill Clinton or Watergate sleuths Woodward and Bernstein. West Palm has the new Palm Beach outlets with over 100 outlet stores in the making and Cityplace downtown for live music, restaurants and shops. The Kravis Center for musicals and plays is also close by. Antique Row is a few short blocks away as is Palm Beach which needs no description.
Delray Beach...what every beach town should be...
In addition to a great central location in between all these great towns, Delray Beach is special all on its own. Nationally recognized as the Most Fun Small City in America, Delray Beach is what we wish every beach town could be. It is a walking village with lots of shops and restaurants and Johnny Brown's for live rock and roll and Elvis lookalikes. Delray has a public beach prettier than many private beaches, with deluxe cabanas for rent, or in the case of Villa Athena, complimentary to our guests. Delray has a variety of restaurants offering happy hour specials and you can walk from place to place sampling the best that each has to offer. The Downtowner is a free golf cart shuttle that picks you up wherever you are downtown or at the beach and takes you to your next adventure. The Delray Tennis Center is a few blocks away, and Pineapple Grove on Second Avenue has Pilates, yoga, a fitness center, beauty salons and spas. The Delray Beach Library downtown is new and modern, with friendly staff to guide you to the best vacation reading. It also hosts guests speakers periodically throughout the year on a variety of historical and current event topics. In short, Delray Beach is the perfect place to vacation and all who are fortunate enough to experience it come back again and again to enjoy the 'Village by the Sea.'
Year Purchased: 2014
About the owner: We have been vacationing in Delray Beach for five years and found it to be so different from all the other Florida towns. We wanted to invest more of our personal time here so purchasing the villas seemed like the perfect vantage point from which to get to know the community even better. We have our own businesses and that makes it easier to work from Delray or Washington, D.C. as needed. Each villa is equipped with high-speed Internet access to enable our guests to do the same. We have owned beach homes since 2005 and our philosophy is to furnish them the way we would furnish our personal home and to have guests enjoy them the way that we do. We have found that guests appreciate the feeling of being at a cosmopolitan beach home, relaxed and yet elegant with attention to detail. We vacation in Martha's Vineyard every year, so when we chose this home we created an environment where people who are used to those vacations could relax and enjoy the same elegant, relaxed style in sunny Florida.
Why the Owner Chose Delray Beach, FL, USA:
This intimate and private Villa is unique in that it offers luxurious living in a relaxed yet elegant beach home located in the award-winning Delray Beach, 'Village by the Sea.' There are numerous condos and homes around to choose from for your vacation, but Villa Athena and her sister villa offer a high quality, luxurious, private beach vacation experience within walking distance to the Avenue. When you want a private yet intimate vacation with your family or loved ones, try out Villa Athena in the Village by the Sea.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
How many ways can you say Private-Private-Private? In a crowded, fast-paced world, we luxuriate in the simple things like privacy, quiet, beautiful surroundings, raindrops on the roof, lush tropical greenery and colorful bougainvillea. We like a touch of South Beach here and there with the comfort and class of Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket. We want to take a midnight swim under the moonlight if the spirit moves us. We want a place large enough to have guests but not so large that the feeling of intimacy is lost. We want the advantages of a resort but we want exclusivity. Villa Athena and its sister captured my passion and engaged my mind, inspiring me to create a memorable vacation for discriminating travelers. I hope you agree.
