Great Stay in Delray!

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family of eleven stayed in this Delray Beach home. While everyone did not have their own room, we were all very comfortable and privacy was not an issue. The inside has lots of great room for hanging out and spending time together - large eating areas, great TV's, pool table. Outside is equally awesome - great pool, hot tub, putting green, basketball hoop. The home is extremely well maintained and stocked with everything you need for a great stay. We had no problems while we were there, but I am confident Fred would have quickly taken care of any issue .

Great vacation

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for 3 months. The home was well maintained and completely equipped with almost everything. We had a wonderful time with family and friends, especially our grandchildren. Fred Defalco was responsive to any request and took care of everything that required attention. Would highly recommend this property. Salvatore M. Gagliano M.D.

Beautiful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Fred's home is fantastic! We had 19 people together for a family reunion and this property was perfect. Well kept with everything you could want to entertain kids and adults alike! We had plenty of space and enjoyed all the amenities greatly. Fred takes pride in this property and even stopped by to fix a thermostat issue he had heard about from the previous guest. We would definitely rent this property again!

I must say that if you haven't tried out this property, you are truly missing out!! I rate it a++. The place is spotless clean, and has everything in it!! My children had no time to try out any of the indoor activities, since there was so much to do outdoors!!! Fred was wonderful! Fred, thank you so much again!

Delray Beach
Car: recommended

Delray Beach is known as a Sociable City and recently awarded 'Best of the Road - Most Fun Small Town in America' by Rand McNally & USA Today.

Explore the crystal clear Atlantic Ocean or visit unique galleries and boutiques on Atlantic Avenue by day; enjoy a night of dining and entertainment at any of Delray Beach’s award winning cafés or restaurants and you will instantly feel the warm and friendly atmosphere that makes downtown Delray Beach such a joy to visit. Come “downtown” and meet the beautiful people, shopkeepers and the entire community. Delray Beach is a first-class resort destination and a diverse, vibrant, community situated on the Atlantic Ocean between Boca Raton and West Palm Beach. A small and intimate town with big city sophistication, Delray Beach is 30-45 minutes from Palm Beach and Fort Lauderdale International Airports, and only an hour north of Miami. A two-time winner of the coveted All-America City award (1993 and 2001), Delray Beach celebrates its art, culture and history.

On July 25th, 2012, Delray Beach was named Most Fun Small Town in the USA by Rand McNally, USA Today and the Travel Channel on a nationally televised special, Best of the Road. There are plenty of reasons that Delray Beach won this award!

Delray’s Atlantic Avenue, which runs through the center of town from I-95 to the ocean, is the longest Main Street in Florida. A popular destination for locals and visitors alike, Atlantic Avenue is a charming streetscape filled with upscale shops, fine restaurants and nightly entertainment. The downtown is known, nationally, for its family-friendly festivals such as the Delray Affair and Delray Beach Garlic Fest and for its famous 100-foot Christmas Tree, where visitors can walk inside to see animated displays. Come for the Tree lighting and see Santa arrive via helicopter!

Delray Beach’s booming art scene is an experience for the eyes and the soul! More than 20 galleries and public art pieces are located downtown and in the Pineapple Grove Arts District, home to Artists Alley, where you will find working artists in their studios. Gallery Walks draw visitors on Friday nights from October to April. Delray Beach’s signature event, On The Ave, held five times a year, always features food, music and an outdoor art gallery.
