About Joan M. Smith

This house has been in our family since 1988. We know and love Singer Island. We have lived in our house on the other side of Singer Island since our daughter was born in 1987.

Joan M. Smith purchased this cottage in 1988

Why Joan M. Smith chose Palm Beach County

We love the little beach community of Palm Beach Shores. The Sandal Lane beach cottage was first purchased by our parents in 1988 from the original owner who started building it in 1949. It has now been passed down to us and we plan to keep it in the family.

What makes this cottage unique

It is hard to find a little beach community like this. In the late 40's, the developer had the foresight to make a walkway through the entire town running north and south. You can walk to the inlet and watch the gorgeous boats come and go. The walk takes you past the town hall with its own police and fire department. Along the way there are beautiful native trees, benches, and other friendly walkers. This neighborhood is truly a slice of old Florida.

Great Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great home in a great location. It was our first year doing the "snowbird" thing, and we could not have picked a better rental. The house was clean, comfortably furnished, and had everything we needed. It made the move in, and move out process very easy. Great screened in porch, and fenced in, very private back yard, which is great for small dogs. Our dog Harvey just loved it. The location is great, being a 5 minute walk to the beach, and several restaurants, and 10 minute walk to Sailfish Marina/Restaurant. The town of Palm Beach Shores is quiet, residential, and charming. Very "walkable", with a walking path through the town to the Inlet. We rented from Joan and Larry from January for 3 months, and if we do this again, it will be our first choice. Joan and Larry were very responsive to any questions or requests we had.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

As soon as we pulled up to the house we knew it was going to be the vacation we wanted.

Super clean house with All the amenities, Did not need a thing

Joan and Larry were gracious hosts anytime I called , they answered

Our dog had a wonderful vacation as well! Great walks around the island, we could even take her to the restaurants

The house has a beautiful yard ,in which she investigated every inch,..she's a beagle 😊

The town and the people are welcoming , even went to the Town tree lighting ceremony!

We stayed 2 blissful weeks and look forward to coming back

If you have a car , that's good

But if you don't ,.. Not needed .. The island has it all

Beautiful, well-stocked house!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we opened the front door and walked in, we continued to be impressed and happily surprised by this house. It was immaculate, charming, and had everything you could ask for in the kitchen and bathrooms as well as beach chairs, washer and dryer, garage with door opener, etc. The back yard is gorgeous and well maintained and a great place to hang out, grill and relax. It feels like you're in a real home and is so convenient to the beach, restaurants, shops, pedestrian trail, the marina, etc. We didn't really need to get in our car at all after we arrived. The owners were extremely helpful along the way and the information book they provided had all the information we needed as well as some super restaurant recommendations and menus. This was perfect for our family vacation and we would absolutely stay here again and again.

Great house close to the beach and baseball fields

  • 5 of 5

Traveled recently for baseball tournament in Jupiter and did not want to stay in hotel for 8 days. Found this house on VRBO and rented it. Location was close to ballfields and more importantly the beach! House was lovely and kitchen fully furnished; washer and dryer included. Loved the welcoming chocolate and bottle of wine as well as the screened in porch. Joan and Larry were outstanding in making our stay the best. Loved the neighborhood and walking trails. It was a great time and if we ever come back for more baseball, we hope we can stay here.

great house and location

  • 5 of 5

The house is exactly as described and as pictured in the listing. The house is fully equipped, clean and very nicely decorated - very relaxing place to stay! It is located in a nice neighborhood, walking distance to the beach, the inlet and the intracoastal. The owners have also provided a permit for parking at the beach, if you'd rather drive the few blocks instead of walking. The backyard is fully fenced, which is very helpful if you have a dog. I recommend this property, and I would stay here again.

Every Thursday night during the winter there is a craft show featuring music, food, and crafts at the Sailfish Marina just down the street. Take a morning walk through the neighborhood to the inlet. Visit John D. McArthur State Park located on the island for a nature walk or enjoy the beach. Water taxis offer tours of the waters or transportation to Peanut Island just off Singer Island. Though you may never tire of the wide pristine beaches, there are many nearby attractions. Visit the Norton Museum of Art, the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts, Palm Beach Zoo, or Lion Country Safari just to name a few. Take the kids to the nearby Rapids Water Park, visit Clematis Street and CityPlace in downtown West Palm Beach, check out Downtown at the Gardens, Palm Beach Outlets, and the upscale Gardens Mall. Stroll the famous Palm Beach Worth Avenue or take a tour on the DivaDuck Amphibious Tours. There are art festivals, food and wine festivals, and holiday festivals. Plenty of restaurants within walking distance on Singer Island but hundreds of others within a short distance. Check it all out on the internet!
