About the Property
2 bedroom, 1.5 bathroom historic cottage approximately 1 mile to the beach!
Your home for the next few days or longer is the Florida of the past with the amenities of today all within short walking distance to Atlantic Avenue, Delray Beach Tennis Center and of course the beach! Upon your arrival, and after you've parked your car or two on our offstreet driveway, you can decide if you want to catch a Delray Downtowner FREE golf cart to the beach, a tennis match at the end of the block or attend one of the many festivals downtown throughout the year like The Delray Affair, Wine & Seafood Festival or the Delray Beach Festival of the Arts now in it's 26th year!
However, none of this would matter unless you had a nice, quiet, comfortable place to lay your head. That's why we have two brand new king and queen size BeautyRest mattresses to sleep a total of 4 people in our 1100sq.ft home.
The king size bed sits in the master bedroom with it's own walk in closet. The smaller 2nd bedroom has a queen size bed and storage for your belongings as well.
There is one full bath and one half bathroom for your convenience with hair dryer included.
In our living room sits a beautiful like new L shaped couch ready to welcome the tired travel for a Sunday morning nap, watching your favorite TV show or movie on our HDTV with BluRay DVD player, surfing the web with our 50MB download speed WiFI network or just shutting all that off and reading a book. It's your vacation, it's your choice!
If you like to cook, we've got you covered! In addition to the usual appliances we provide all dishes, flatware, utensils, pots/pans, bowls & measuring spoons (for pancakes!) toaster and coffee maker. If you're missing something for your meal like the gravy boat or that lemon zester, let us know and maybe we can help out! And yes, of course there's a grill!;) You are after all on vacation. Also, what better way to start your day with breakfast on the veranda, birds chirping, coffee brewing and the most difficult decision you're going to have to face all day is, 'Where are we going for lunch after the beach?'
Let's face it, you're going to have to wash those swim suits as well and that's not a problem with the full-size washer and dryer less than a year old. All linens are provided which include fresh clean bedding, bath, and beach towels too. You didn't think we were going to make you bring that did you? Oh and we've had a full landscape done that's growing in nicely!
The French Cottage is more than just wood, metal and stone…it's our home that we've decided to share with you, likeminded travelers who aren't looking for the buffet lines, the hotel bars and the awkward elevator silence, people who are looking to experience the locale and truly live like a local. Book your stay now, before someone else does! We look forward to seeing you. John & Lori McCormack

About the owner: We are full-time Delray Beach residents and live right down the street from The French Cottage. We're continually trying to update and improve our home for ourselves and our guests. We recently had new siding, paint, flooring and tile installed on the veranda. When we're not working you can usually find us out and about with our dog in Delray Beach (we rarely leave) whether it's the beach, Lake Ida dog park, Atlantic Avenue or out west at the Delray MarketPlace. We love to travel in our spare time and have had the privilege of visiting Copenhagen, Berlin, Barcelona, UK, Prague and the Netherlands as well as frequenting the mountains of North Carolina. And what goes hand in hand better than travel? Food of course! We're both definitely foodies and will be more than happy to assist with local recommendations and would actually be offended if you didn't ask us where to go;)
Why the Owner Chose Delray Beach, FL, USA:
If given the choice again, we still would have picked Delray Beach to call home and it looks like we're not the only ones as our quaint little beach town has been featured in Conde Nast Traveler, Coastal Living and also voted 'Most Fun Small Town in America' by Rand McNally and USA Today. You know how they say to never buy the first house you look at? Well, we couldn't be happier about that decision because one look and we fell in love. If you appreciate character, history and charm this house has it. It was originally built in 1930 and is a historic property but don't let the unassuming outside fool you because it's been fully remodeled with new electric, A/C, plumbing, and cherry wood floors and has all the modern amenities you might desire on your South Florida vacation! Wondering where the name came from? Well, we liked to pay a little homage to the previous owner who did a great job renovating the property and we feel like we must carry on with the improvements to this living piece of Delray Beach history.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Location, location, location! We're two blocks from Atlantic Avenue, just over a mile from the beach and only one block away from the beautiful Delray Beach International Tennis Center. Close enough but also far away enough from bustling downtown Atlantic Avenue. When you arrive here, put the car keys away because everything is within walking distance or a short relaxing bike ride away! Or if you prefer, just call our friends at the Delray Downtowner who provide FREE! eco-friendly golf cart rides within the entire downtown area. Let's face it, you could stay at a hotel but why pay twice the price for half the space? If you're looking for a unique experience dealing with real locals, we're here to help. We'd love to share our insider tips, knowledge and local pride in our 'Village by the Sea'
