About the property

Cat lover? Our home is now available to rent February 2018. Kitty sitting needed


Welcome to our new, fully renovated (2015) lovely ranch-style 3-bedroom home with striking new kitchen and two new high-end baths. The living room is SO comfortable with Lazy Boy reclining sofas and it opens to a spacious dining room AND family room with a lovely open floor plan and superb design for small or large groups. Our family room with new 60” HDTV has easy seating for 8 and the most comfortable furniture you will every sit in. It opens to a huge, cool-step patio for dining, lounging and cookouts (enjoy our new gas grill!). Our double-sized master bedroom with queen bed offers a private bath, flat-screen TV, sitting area & french doors to the totally private "salt water" pool w/multi-colored underwater lighting, cascading waterfall and spa. It is truly a resort-like setting within an extensive 6 foot privacy fence - think midnight swims from your bedroom doors while kids are asleep! Two guest bedrooms are perfect for family & guests with brand new bedding to accommodate an additional 6 people. 2nd bedroom has a brand new queen-sized bed while 3rd bedroom has a full-sized bed with a twin bunk on top and a twin trundle underneath (also new and comfortable for 4 in this room if you’re looking for bed space). And our family room has a queen-sized pull out sofa to accommodate a 9th and 10th person if you really have a large crowd or your kids are coming in to visit. Brand new guest bath and new, full-sized Speed Queen laundry center make one-floor living a breeze. All towels and linens are provided and set up for you to just unpack and settle right in.

Our brand new kitchen with sparkling granite counters, new cabinetry & pantry, new stainless steel appliances, (new fridge w/refreshment center) and breakfast bar is fully stocked with new kitchenware, glassware, pots & pans, Cuisinart coffee maker, toaster oven & Ninja blender.

New windows, roof, heating & cooling and ceiling fans in every room will provide you with great comfort in every season.

Outside, a royal palm tree-lined walk, lovely irrigated lawn and colorful shrubbery welcomes you. Easy off-street parking for four cars is available in our level driveway but although a car is handy, it is not needed in this most convenient location. The stunning and over-sized fully-fenced, secluded yard with magnificent pool and expansive patio offers new gas grill, many lounging chairs and a large, new dining table with umbrella for your enjoyment. Not to be redundant, but this backyard setting is truly a private, tropical paradise and wonderful escape from the busy pool areas of the local hotels. The landscaping is lush and the gallon pool with waterfall and spa have THE NEWEST salt-water system so the typical choline chemicals won’t be burning your eyes or changing your hair color. This yard is such an oasis, it’s hard to leave the property to enjoy all the fun eateries and fabulous beaches that are just blocks away in Delray.

This safe, family-friendly, Lake Ida neighborhood with older and newer homes (and some in transition) is very well located within the "Downtowners" FREE pick-up route so a car is handy but not essential. Just give the Downtowners a call for a quick pick-up to the beach, a return home, or to bring you to Atlantic Avenue for a fabulous lunch or dinner at Dada’s or The Office or Boston’s with Tiki Bar. next door. Your choices are endless and this open-air mini van (large golf cart) is always just 5 minutes from your pick up spot. Young, friendly drivers work for tips so it’s nice to have a few dollars with you. For transportation to West Palm, Fort Lauderdale or Miami (with spots in between) hop on the Tri-Rail which will also deliver you to local airports. Palm Beach airport is 25 minutes north while Fort Lauderdale is 30 minutes south.

But back to OUR address, we’re located just 1.5 to 1.8 miles (5 minute bike ride) to the beach and all the restaurants, shops and night-life of Delray Beach. You won't miss a moment in this delightful vacation spot voted "the most fun small town in America"!! With a vibrant night-life, outstanding restaurants with open-air dining, ice cream parlors, specialty candy stores and numerous shops and galleries, we know you'll discover your new and favorite Florida beach community if you don’t know Delray already.

So please join us for our inaugural season at our new address. We have family in Delray so you’ll be well taken care of and well -nformed as to the special, not-to-be-missed hot spots and events. We want to be sure your vacation is care-free with all the comforts that you could possibly expect. We’ve worked hard to get this prepped and ready for you. We’re working on our notebook with menus and phone numbers for bike rentals and all local services. Our calendar still has some openings in August during school vacation and please read below for a last-minute opening in February of 2018!!! This is a lovely spot for a girls’ get-a-way, an intimate honeymoon or a family reunion. Our minimum stay is three nights. Weekly rentals are a good value and monthly rentals are even better. Your dog is welcome, of course with a minor pet deposit. So, give us a call and come check us out. We’re excited to be your hosts. - Judy Barclay and John McCambridge

P.S. We will have moved to our Delray home full time (with our very affectionate and well-trained indoor cat) for the 2017 holidays but would like to travel during February of 2018. We'd be happy to accommodate tenants that month who would enjoy a little pet for about 3+ weeks in mid winter. Dates are flexible and Cleo is very lovable. He can do well with a small dog so let's talk if you think this might be a good match.

About Judy Barclay

I've been a REALTOR in Wellesley, Massachusetts (so I know how to stage!) for the past 40 years. I grew up in Fairfield, Connecticut and attended Boston College. I taught elementary school for five years. We have seven children who live all over the world and my youngest lives in Delray Beach. I loved this young, vibrant, bustling beach community the moment I saw it with FABULOUS restaurants, fun and colorful night-life, wonderful shopping and a gorgeous, expansive beach (with additional beach restaurants, great happy hours and even an awesome tiki bar!). I decided Delray Beach would be our future, full-time home when we were ready. When I saw this newly renovated property, large private yard and fabulous pool in a safe family neighborhood so close to the beach and all Delray's many activities and amazing events, I knew this was for us. It will be a home our children will want to visit for holidays and vacations with their children once we're living there. It's so close to so many outstanding Florida attractions. In the meantime, we welcome you to enjoy it as if it were your own. I'm sure you'll love it as we do.

Judy Barclay purchased this house in 2015

Why Judy Barclay chose Delray Beach

We've traveled extensively to so many beach communities around the world. Delray Beach will not disappoint you and it's oh-so-accessible with two international airports just 25 minutes away. Here you'll have the privacy of a comfortably furnished home, a resort-like pool and yard all to yourselves (instead of those noisy hotel pools!), a fully stocked kitchen so you can avoid the expense of having to eat every meal out and you're just three minutes to downtown Delray and its most wonderful beach. Don't want to cook-in or barbeque? The Delivery Dudes will deliver from Delray's best restaurants - right to your door. I can be hard to leave. But, when you're ready to venture out, the Downtowner (free, multi-seat,open air shuttle) will also come right to your door and take you downtown or to the beach. Vacationing doesn't get much easier than this.

What makes this house unique

Location, pool, tropical yard, three bedrooms plus two living rooms to give your family and guests some comfortable options.

Great place for a weekend away!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for a girls weekend away from the city. The house was comfortable and had everything we needed. Judy was so helpful, and she answered any questions we had and even made recommendations for things we could enjoy for the weekend. We had a great time enjoying the pool and venturing out to see the beach and the town.

We had a delightful stay

Judy made sure we were well taken care of. When we had questions, she communicated quickly. The dog loved the fenced-in yard. Pocket park around the corner.

The house was great and worked well for all of our needs.

The house was very clean, bright and the pool was highly enjoyed!! The location was close enough to the downtown to make that trip easy too. All in all, great house for a Delray visit!!!

Private, quiet, perfect!!!

  • 5 of 5

Owners were very easy and pleasant to work with. The house was even better in person and we were delighted! The back yard was perfect for our two little dogs to run around while we enjoyed the pool. It is such a private back yard you feel like you are on your own island. The house was clean with comfy beds, great remodeled bathrooms. Had a momentary problem with the wifi and the owners answered my text right away and got it resolved. (Just needed a reset.) The house had everything you could need including a small cooler to for the beach, towels, full kitchen, and a bottle of wine was there to welcome us. I can't say enough good things and if we stay near Delray again we will stay here. The location is a quiet neighborhood a few blocks from the down town area where you can eat at a different awesome restaurant every night. The beach isn't far at all but with a private pool we only went once. W. Palm Beach isn't far, neither are day trips to local zoo's, butterfly world, and a big antique mall are all near by. We went deep sea fishing with Samana Fishing Charters about 30 mins away and it was great. Highly recommend the Mexican restaurant down on the main strip in Delray, The Broken Egg for breakfast is near by as well and fabulous for breakfast, our favorite was the Sky Bar Asian restaurant -wish we'd had time to go twice.

This was our first HomeAway experience and we will probably never be able to stay in a hotel again. #homeawayforlife

Very nice home.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Delray Beach was wonderful. This home is very nice/extremely well maintained and we felt right at home from the moment we arrived. A bottle of white wine was chilling in the fridge for us, along with a very nice message from Judy. We brought in our stuff, settled in, and immediately moved out to the pool area and had a beautiful evening!

The house itself is very spacious and very nice - I just loved the house. The pool was very nice, as well and we spent plenty of time out there. Everything you need is close by, stores, beaches, restaurants, Atlantic Avenue - very convenient location. The neighborhood is also very quiet. I had a question or two while we were there and Judy responded very quickly.

We plan on visiting the area every year and would most definitely stay in this home again.

Beautiful, well maintained property in perfect proximity to the best of Delray.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful home for 9 days in July. The home was perfectly clean and very well stocked. My kids really enjoyed the large pool and backyard. I loved the proximity to the beautiful Delray beach as well as great restaurants on Atlantic Ave. We all loved the quiet neighborhood...everyone slept great!!

Judy checked on us to make sure all was going well and delivered wine to welcome us. Judy was quick to respond to any question I had both during the searching for a rental property time as well as during our stay at her home. It was a wonderful vacation and great vrbo experience.
