About Carter Redd

"Jungle Cottage" has been our home for over 15 years. We have raised our two daughters and Sallie, our golden retriever in this idyllic, quiet neighborhood.

We have created indelible memories and experiences over the years and expect that you will too.

Our girls are older and now in school up North, while we are on a new journey in Charleston, SC.

"Jungle Cottage" is best when full of people and full of joy, celebrating the amazing beauty of South Florida and our Delray Beach community.

Carter Redd purchased this house in 2005

Why Carter Redd chose Delray Beach

We have lived in Delray Beach for over twenty years. I had admired "Jungle Cottage", in particular her mature, tropical gardens and light grey shutters for several years during walks and bike rides.

One day, I saw a for sale sign and we jumped at the opportunity to own one of Delray's oldest classic coastal homes. While we now live in South Carolina, we long for Delray Beach and return home when we can. Not your typical, bland rental - ours is truly a home and lives large; creating a great setting for family memories.

What makes this house unique

We fell in love initially with the shady gardens and cottage curb appeal, but once we entered the front door, the fun began. The exposed beams and bright white paneling in the Florida room, contrasted by the dark hardwood floors captivated us and the "hook was set!"

The backyard has since become yet another loved place about the house. Surrounded by shady, exotic tropical foliage and towering palm trees, casual swims in the pool are truly sublime.

Paradise by the sea

  • 5 of 5

The experience at Jungle Cottage is hard to describe because it was outstanding. We travel a lot and like to stay at good houses. This one is definitely in our top (global) 5! If you're looking to truly unplug and rest, in a calm environment, this is your place!

We loved the back garden, which makes you feel as though you're in the middle of the Caribbean, surrounded by different species of palm trees and a great pool. We used to hang out there a lot because it also has a very nice big sitting area.

Inside, the house decoration is impeccable, and the layout is very practical. You have everything you need in the kitchen. The bedrooms are very pretty and the beds are comfortable.

The location is unbeatable: we walked one block to the beautiful beach, which is well-kept, clean and with few people. It's also 2 blocks away from Atlantic Ave., with its quaint stores and some good restaurants.

The owner and the property manager were very attentive at all times. We look forward to returning! Thanks so much Carter and Thomas!

Family vacation success!

  • 4 of 5

Visited Del Ray with my family (6 adults and 1 year old) for four nights and we had an amazing trip! The house is a block from the beach and walking distance to Atlantic Ave. We hung by the pool, grilled and also went to the beach for a day. If your looking for an affordable place to go with your family this is the house! We love to eat out and there was 100s of options just half mile walk away! Also, property managers Thomas and Steve are very responsive if you need anything! We give it an A review!

Where do you live?

Loved it. Great location. Old Florida charm.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have been to Delray many times and found this house to be by far the best experience. The beach is a block away and town an easy walk. We also like to bike so we were able to get everywhere quickly. The house is very private and the back patio which leads to the pool is under cover and is a great place to hang out especially after coming back from the beach.. Very interesting retro decor. Best set up for 3 couples given bed arrangement. The only negative is the capacity of the hot water tank which will only allow 2 consecutive showers without a wait. This can create a time crunch before going out in the evening. Overall we had a great time and the caretakers were extremely cordial and helpful.

Lovely Relaxed Lifestyle

  • 5 of 5

After a two week stay at "Jungle Cottage" I did not want to go home! From Day 1 when the charming Steven met me at the house until Day 14 when we (sadly) had to check out, I was entranced. The location is excellent - one block from the clear, warm waters of the Atlantic and two short blocks to the shops and restaurants of the eastern end of Atlantic Avenue. The back yard is a great hang-out spot. The awning provides shade and cover from the rain when necessary. Large sofas and a giant coffee table worked for card games, casual dinner and just sitting around chatting and having a cocktail or two. The pool is large and has a ledge at one end for sitting and dangling your feet in the water and having a cocktail or two. Do you sense a theme? Large grill and two bikes included as well. Charming interior. Old School Florida meets Casual Contemporary. Jungle Cottage has more space than is evident from the photos on line. Lovely artwork and comfortable, useful, furniture. Ceiling fans in most rooms keep the air flowing. During my stay I used both the heat and the air conditioning and both worked well. Bedrooms were comfy and had good closet space. The upstairs master bedroom and bathroom have tons of closet space. Showers had great water pressure and my guests loved the outdoor shower which was great for coming in off the beach. Kitchen was well appointed. Nice big refrigerator. I used the washer and dryer a lot and they both did the job efficiently. So overall, a wonderful, comfy stay nestled in a great neighborhood location in Delray Beach. Thanks Carter, Thomas and especially Steven for enhancing my stay!
