Stunning Designer's Custom home in the heart of East Boca Raton. This meticulous and enchanting three bedroom, two and a half bath Mediterranean-style home provides the perfect getaway for couples or families looking to experience a comfortable stay in an absolutely beautiful custom-built home. Be it for the week or the season, you will find everything you want and need here - and more.

Exquisite Italian Travertine marble adorns the floors in the kitchen, entryways, and bathrooms, and meets up with beautiful hand scraped hardwood floors in the living room, dining room and family room with fireplace.

The Tuscan-inspired kitchen is a culinary delight - from the six-burner Viking Professional Series stove and oven to handcrafted custom wood cabinets to the imported Italian granite countertops. Enjoy a casual meal or a late-night snack at the kitchen island and watch the news at breakfast on your flat screen television. A brand new Keurig Coffee Machine will welcome you each morning, along with a full assortment of K-Cup Coffees and Tazo Teas.

The Master Bedroom with king-sized bed and exclusive Prana Sleep mattress opens up onto a bougainvillea veranda. Connecting through the cedar-lined, walk-in closet area is the spa-like Master Bathroom, stunningly constructed with imported marble and dark-wood accents. The large dual-headed shower and oversized corner jacuzzi tub provide the ultimate in luxurious bathing comfort.

Guest bedroom #1 contains a queen-sized bed, closet, air printer, and dressers.

Guest bedroom #2 has two twin beds, dressers, and a large comfortable sitting area for reading or relaxing. You will never have to go out to the movies when you can watch your favorite stars on an awesome ten-foot projection screen with full surround sound.

The guest bathrooms are beautifully adorned with marble and and a unique copper ceiling. Bathe indoors or open the glass door to a private outdoor shower (and great access to the pool!).

Don't want to break your work-out routine? Whether you're a fitness guru or just a casual treadmiller, there is no need to find an local gym; exercise to your heart's content right here at home! Enjoy a private room (with overhead fan and flat screen TV) boasting a Precor Elliptical Machine, Lifestyler Treadmill, and full, multi-station Parabody gym with over 1000 lbs. of weights.

Sunbathe, swim, and relax your cares away in the serene and lushly landscaped backyard patio area and large outdoor pool. Complete with lounge chairs, brand new patio set for outside dining, and large umbrellas - our most recents guests called it 'a resort.' It is a most perfect place to enjoy a frozen margarita or daiquiri, and we have a full range of beautiful plasticware to complement the outside patio area.

As one of our goals is to provide our guests with the very best, every season we restock our closets and cabinets with brand-new linens, pillows, silverware, and dinnerware. And because we simultaneously like to make our home (and lives!) as 'green' as possible, we always donate the previous season's amenities to our local Habitat for Humanity.

Located in an incredibly convenient location east of I-95, this home is a just a couple of miles to the pristine beaches and one mile from elegant downtown. Use one of our bicycles to bike to the beach, Mizner Park, and shopping, and the Town Center Mall and hundreds of restaurants are a short car ride away. Whole Foods, Starbucks, Barnes and Noble, and a plaza full of fabulous restaurants are right around the corner.

Enjoy an evening of outdoor music at Mizner Park amphitheater or a cultural afternoon at a local museum. And don't forget the nightlife - from upscale clubs to fine dining to outdoor concerts at the Mizner amphitheater, Boca has it all. (And don't forget Boca's close proximity to downtown Ft Lauderdale, the Hard Rock Casino, and Palm Beach!)

For the golfer in the family world famous courses are just a few minutes away.

The Boca Raton area also boasts many upscale consignment shops and boutiques, perfect for browsers and buyers alike.

Like to do some boating or fishing? The Boca Raton inlet is just 2 miles away and once on the water only minutes out to the Gulf Stream and some of the finest fishing in the world.

About Liz

Custom Home Builder and Designer.

Liz purchased this house in 1989

Why Liz chose Boca Raton

We originally chose Boca as a place to live because it's a meticulously-maintained and beautiful city. Now it's my home. Boca is a cosmopolitan city with a home-town feel. I love my neighborhood because of its close proximity to nearly everything Boca has to offer - the beach, downtown, boat ramps, shopping. I also enjoy being a part of all sorts of open-air concerts, and Mizner Park Amphitheater offers this year-round, many for free! To me, East Boca just has a special feel - an ocean breeze, a history, a luxurious, vibrant really is one of the most beautiful places to live in the country.

What makes this house unique

Because I've been a builder and designer of multi-million dollar homes for decades, I saw great potential in this jewel of a property when I first paid eyes on it in the late '80s. To me, it was an untouched canvas on which I could create a home to emulate the places I've been - a piece of paradise from Tahiti, a touch of Tuscany from the Italian countryside, and the lush tranquil gardens from Hawaii. I originally bought this home for myself; however, now that I am semi-retired, I thought it would be a great time to share it with others. You'll find so many beautiful touches in an impeccable setting, one that is meticulously clean and constantly updated.

Wonderful Stay ! Everything as described .

  • 5 of 5

We are veterans to Home Away rental properties having used Home Away for home rentals in Costa Rica, the Cayman Islands and in Florida .

This beautiful home was exactly as described .Our hosts made the house feel like our own . Their communication during the whole process was outstanding . The house was very clean, well appointed and the backyard was private, with beautiful landscaping and a wonderful pool and a large Weber gas grill.

We had quick and easy access to supermarkets and shopping. There were plenty of restaurants within minutes and the owners left a binder full of dining choices , local attractions and information regarding the house .

Going on vacation should always be this easy ! We would rent this house again without a second thought and will recommend it to friends and family.

Private paradise

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home with a peaceful backyard. The owners are very friendly and helpful. Closely located to the beach and a few minutes from downtown Delray Beach where you can enjoy amazing restaurants.

We had a great time with our children and would definitely rent this house again when we visit the sunshine state. I would gladly recommend this house for your next vacation. I will be spreading the word in Brazil!!

Private paradise in Boca Raton

  • 5 of 5

This is a fabulous home if you want your own private paradise. We went with our two adult children here and had a great time. The pool and back yard was the highlight, ultra private and immaculate landscaping made this our own private oasis. If you want to enjoy the Florida sun, but skip the crowded beach scene, this is a great option. The home is gorgeous, spacious and quiet with the 3 bedrooms at opposite ends, fabulous stone work and nice separation between the living areas. We loved the home theater system. The kitchen and all areas are very well appointed. The owners were great to work with on our last minute booking. Highly recommend this home if you want privacy and beauty.

Best vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband was nervous to book a house online so he made them crazy that it better be nice and clean, the owner responded by saying "I promise you won't be disappointed!" And boy was she right! This house deserves the highest star rating! It was a stunning spotless house, the pictures don't even do it justice it's much nicer in real life! Stunning manicured property! The pool is magnificent and lets not forget the greatest people to get to know, I cant wait to come again. I recommended lots of friends to this house. Enjoy it !
