Lots of fun at Villa Y
My husband took our granddaughters, aged 10 and 7, to Royal Flamingo Villas the week of June 10. We found Villa Y to be perfect for our needs with its two bedrooms, two bathrooms, full kitchen, and sitting area. Its location between the ocean and the Intracoastal Waterway was great; to go to the pool or beach, we took a short walk across the street, and to go to the Intracoastal to fish or just boat watch, we took a short walk from our back door. The covered porch was appreciated as a place to be outdoors but out of the hot sun or rain, and the large lawn in front of our villa was a place the girls could run around in if they wanted. Extra things that were nice to have on hand were a large clothes drying rack, which we used every day for swimsuits and towels, boogie boards for the beach, and a vacuum cleaner that, admittedly, we used only once! We didn't know when we initially booked the villa that daily housekeeping was a part of the service, but that was a wonderful surprise. Overall, we found Royal Flamingo Villas to be a lovely, quiet community in a great location; we would definitely return and stay in Villa Y again!
Loved the location, villa was charming .We we disappointed to find that the kitchen did not have any of the staples, ie. Coffee, sugar, salt , pepper, dish soap.foil etc. Even a hotel provides coffee. That being said, the kitchen is well equipped as far as dishes, pots, pans etc. The beds were comfy. We had a few issues with ants which cant be helped and a few other things that were resolved within a few days. The beach and pool area were great... The views are stunning as the complex spreads out so your either close to the ocean but this villa is closer to the intercoastal waterway. Overall, it was ok...a few things need a bit of improvement, but I would go back.
Jeannine -- thanks for all the feedback. Re the ants, I'm on a crusade to figure-out what we can in addition to our monthly preventative maintenance to mitigate the issue.
Regarding the staples, we do provide hand soap, dishwasher soap. and cloth dish towels. I'll discuss with my brother (the owner) to consider provide some of the staples you mention. For the record... we do offer hand soap, dishwasher soap, and laundered cloth kitchen towels and oven mitts.
Our stay here was amazing. Something totally different than what we are used to. So close to the beach, the pool was nice, the villa was sooo cute and everything was just great. Very quiet and laid back, which was the best part! Hope to come back again sometime!
Happy to learn you enjoyed your stay. TAHNKS for describing the aspects you particularly valued.
Great week vacation!
The villa was very clean and updated very nicely. We enjoyed our week in the sun was great to get out of Indiana.
Robert & Theresa -Thank you for the feedback. Pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay. Tom

Thanks for feedback!
Located along the Atlantic Ocean on Florida’s Gold Coast between Ft. Lauderdale and Boca Raton, this villa is situated in the exclusive residential community of Hillsboro Beach (Hillsboro). Hillsboro is home to grand estates, upscale private condominiums, and a select few condominium resorts.
This villa is one of forty detached units on a 7.5 acre condominium association property, which is run as a resort. A management office and staff are provided on-site to address guests' needs, Mon-Sat 9-5pm.
Hillsboro’s landmass is a rare Florida coastal treasure, demarcated by a 3-mile narrow peninsula separating the ocean from the Intracoastal Waterway.
Best known for its magnificent estate properties that straddle both sides of its one public road -- Hillsboro Mile (A1A), known locally as “Millionaires’ Mile” -- inhabitants of Hillsboro enjoy the distinctly different features of BOTH the Atlantic Ocean and Florida’s Intracoastal Waterway.
SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE
Each villa guest has their unique set of interests. That said, experience tells us...
MOST OF OUR GUESTS ON MOST DAYS…spend most of their vacation time on the resort property; spend some time walking or biking N or S to nearby interesting and scenic destinations; and travel a few minutes by car to nearby communities for shopping, dining and entertainment.
GUESTS’ USE OF ON-PROPERTY AMENITIES include... lounging in a cabana on the association’s private beach (cabanas available Nov-Apr); walking barefoot on the beach along the ocean; lounging at and cooling in the association’s freshwater heated pool; and gathering and socializing along the Intracoastal Waterway, most often at sunset boat-watching watercrafts ranging from multi-million-dollar yachts to one-man kayaks.
Villa guests occasionally will be seen fishing from the shorelines of the ocean and Intracoastal Waterway. Snapper, snook, mackerel, pompano and tarpon are common catches.
Barbecue grill and picnic tables are provided at both the private beach and along the Intracoastal for use by villa guests.
WALKING NORTH TO TOWN
Guests often venture north from the villa for a 10-15 minute-walk along sidewalks adjacent the ocean leading to Deerfield Beach (Deerfield). Deerfield is a classic Florida beach town with a fishing pier, well-maintained public beach, beachside gathering-park, and a variety of restaurants and specialty shops.
Venturing south from the villa offers an entirely different experience.
For an up-close ocean experience and an ocean-front view of the grand estate homes and other condominiums, guests can walk south along the ocean beach for nearly 3 miles.
For a street-view of Hillsboro’s grand estates, upscale condominiums, boathouses and docked yachts, guests walk or bike for nearly 3 miles in a defined lane along Hillsboro Mile.
SOUTH FLORIDA’S WORLD-CLASS AMENITIES
Most of our villa guests will experience at least a few of South Florida’s extraordinary destinations, activities, attractions and events. COMMON PURSUITS include: deep sea fishing, boating, ski doos, golf & tennis, live-entertainment, waterside restaurants, Intracoastal Waterway day-cruises, wind surfing, reef snorkeling & scuba diving, various theme parks, South Beach, jai-alai, and professional or college sporting events. The options are virtually endless.
An assortment of pamphlets is available in the association’s on-property management office. Check-out Deerfield Beach Special Events throughout the year.
POPULAR DESTINATION CITIES
Destinations NORTH of Hillsboro include Deerfield (.8 miles) Boca Raton (3 miles), and Delray Beach (13 miles).
Destinations SOUTH of Hillsboro include Fort Lauderdale (14 miles) and Miami’s South Beach (48 miles).
ABOUT A CAR
A unique feature of this villa is its dedicated parking spot about 40 yards from its back door. While most of our guests choose to have a car available for the duration of their stay, an emerging trend we see is guests renting cars ONLY for select days during their stay, particularly long-stay guests.
Some rental car companies have nearby rental office locations which enable them to provide drop-off and pickup service for no additional charge (i.e., Enterprise Rental Car, Boca Raton).
Bike riders will be interested to know that traveling north on Hillsboro Mile to Deerfield Beach, Boca Raton, Highland Beach, Delray Beach and Boynton Beach, covers nearly 20 miles each way. This stretch of A1A is one of the most popular and scenic biking routes in Florida.
Bike rentals are available in Deerfield. Guests typically store their bikes on the villa porch. Speaking of which...
THE VILLA PORCH
This villa has an attached, landscape-partially secluded covered private porch, providing yet another on-property option for guests' gathering, relaxing, and dining. A few of our guests spend more time on this porch than they do inside the villa!
