Terrific Home Rental in West Palm Beach

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I returned from two weeks in West Palm Beach staying at this great property. Rossella and Gary were outstanding in not only welcoming us, but in making certain we were happy and enjoying their home. We were so impressed with their attention to every little detail in making their home our home for the two weeks--even down to having all of one's barbecue needs available for cookouts. Close to the shops and restaurants of Northwood in West Palm Beach, but only 10 minutes to Palm Beach, Clematis and CityPlace too. Fortunately, Rossella and Gary live across the street in a gorgeous home and their proximity made it even better--they are A+! We look forward for certain to staying with them in the future!

Wonderful house and yard

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a wonderful week at this lovely home. The bed was one of the most comfortable I have ever slept on and all of the linens were top quality. Rossella and Gary have gone to great lengths to provide everything you could need. They are delightful people and when we needed assistance in one instance, Rossella was there within five minutes to take care of things. The backyard is truly exceptional with beautiful gardens and a lovely heated pool. The location is close to West Palm Beach downtown and only about ten minutes from Palm Beach. Whole Foods and Publix are about a ten minute drive. We went to the public beach at Singer Island. It is lovely and free parking. It is about a 15 minute drive. Had breakfast at This Is It Café which is about a 5 minute walk. Great food and good prices but it does get crowded. Highly recommend a stay at this wonderful home.

My family and I stayed this home at the end of March into April. The house is absolutely beautiful - big bedrooms, amazing kitchen, beautiful living and dining rooms. The backyard with the huge pool, amazing flowers and tiki bar and grill was where we spent most of our mornings and evenings. We spent a few days at the beach on singer island, went fishing and paddle boarding. All within a short drive. Old Northwood has some great restaurants - all were in walking distance. The owners of the home, Rossella and Gary, who live across the street, are the best hosts! Everything from towels and linens to beach chairs were all provided. If we had any issue or question they were there to help. They are so friendly and helpful. Pictures definitely don't do this house justice - it was one of our best Florida vacations! We cannot wait to return!

West Palm Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I spent two weeks here, first with two friends, then my two daughters. We all loved this clean, sleek, comfortable house. It was beautifully appointed and had all we needed. We even entertained some West Palm friends one night. The gracious owners live across the street, so any questions or assistance we needed were immediately addressed. Everything we wanted to do in town or Palm Beach was just minutes away. The pool, garden and Tiki bar were a welcome oasis after spending time in town. We'd start and end and our days out by the pool; enjoying the great weather and beautiful landscaping. We were in our own beautiful world there. Can't wait to go back.

A little Piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

The house and property are just immaculate. The pictures do not do this property justice. The house is nestled in a beautiful little community.We spent a week there to visit my daughter on spring break. We swam in the pool and had quite a few cookouts on the grill under the Tiki bar. At night the landscape is illuminated to show off the well manicured flower beds. We loved the granite counter tops in the kitchen. My favorite part of staying there was my morning cup of coffee on the back patio. It was so peaceful. I would stay there again next year. The owners are wonderful to work with.

Stunning Home with Beautiful pool

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent 2 incredible weeks at this property during the 2015 Spring Break. Gary and Rossella were lovely hosts, the kindest couple you will ever meet. Everything imaginable was provided for us right down to the beach chairs! The house is beautiful and decorated lovely, the yard and pool area is breathtaking! This home has it all-- pictures don't do it justice, it's more gorgeous in person. We can't wait to come back here!! Thank you!!!
