About Garland Williams

...Remember-in each Villa a Private Hot & Cold Outdoor Shower...!

We have been vacationing in Delray Beach for five years and found it to be so different from all the other Florida towns. We wanted to invest more of our personal time here so purchasing the villas seemed like the perfect vantage point from which to get to know the community even better. We have our own businesses and that makes it easier to work from Delray or Washington, D.C. as needed. Each villa is equipped with high-speed Internet access to enable our guests to do the same. We have owned beach homes since 2005 and our philosophy is to furnish them the way we would furnish our personal home and to have guests enjoy them the way that we do. We have found that guests appreciate the feeling of being at a cosmopolitan beach home, relaxed and yet elegant with attention to detail. We vacation in Martha's Vineyard every year, so when we chose this home we created an environment where people who are used to those vacations could relax and enjoy the same elegant, relaxed style in sunny Florida.

Garland Williams purchased this villa in 2014

Why Garland Williams chose Highland Park Delray

This intimate and private Villa is unique in that it offers luxurious living in a relaxed yet elegant beach home located in the award-winning Delray Beach, 'Village by the Sea.' There are numerous condos and homes around to choose from for your vacation, but Villa at Palm Trail offer a high quality, luxurious, private beach vacation experience within walking distance to the Avenue.

What makes this villa unique

In a crowded, fast-paced world, we luxuriate in the simple things like privacy, quiet, beautiful surroundings, raindrops on the roof, lush tropical greenery and colorful bougainvillea. We like a touch of South Beach here and there with the comfort and class of Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket. We want the advantages of a resort but we want exclusivity. Villa at Palm Trail captured our passion and engaged our minds inspiring us to create a memorable vacation for discriminating travelers. We hope you agree.

Fantastic week in Delray

  • 5 of 5

This place is an absolute gem. Our family of four with two young kids had a wonderful week spending our days at the pool and enjoying Delray at night. Garland was a fantastic host and couldn't have been more accommodating. The bungalow itself was spotlessly clean, well appointed and in a great location. Garland and Joy clearly take pride in their properties and take the time to ensure their guests are taken care of and enjoy their time. Instead of feeling like "guests", it seemed like we were welcomed by a great host and given everything we needed to have a fantastic vacation. Having stayed at a number of rental properties, you can tell when hosts have attention to detail and take care of their properties, and this one was above and beyond.

Owner's Response: Kevin, So glad you enjoyed it! We get so much pleasure from creating a coastal vacation experience for our guests. So many places here are nice and comfortable but you might as well be in midtown Manhattan for the interior ambience. We want people to have a feeling of having a beach town vacation whether inside or out. When out on the town, people seem to think Delray is the best beach town on Florida’s Atlantic coast with such a gorgeous beach, lively downtown shops and restaurants and small town feel. We want that feeling to carry over to our properties. Our goal is for our guests to feel like they are in their own private coastal oasis when they are inside our villas and enjoying the tropical landscaping outside while having morning coffee or when having cocktails by the pool. Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts with us and come back soon. Garland and Joy

Awesome place!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here recently for the second time in two years. The villa has a great beachy feel and is in an awesome location--walking distance to everything--you really don't even need to have a car! The villa and pool area are super clean and inviting, Garland and Joy are great and were helpful in any way needed. We will definitely stay here again and would recommend it over and over!!

My daughter and I came to Delray for a little R & R and stayed in this cozy cottage. The home was clean and neat with a nice sunny, beachy vibe! The beautiful pool was just outside our door and we couldn't get enough of it. Garland was so friendly and available to give us pointers on where to go for fun! Everything you need is there at the house, Atlantic Ave is within walking distance, and there was always the Downtowner - FREE golf cart taxi service- to whisk us away to the the beach! Can't wait to go back! Thank you Garland and Joy!

This is so gorgeous you must see it!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing week. We had additional family unexpectantly for the holiday so Garland and Joy moved us to tropic isle just off linton in delray. The house is so gorgeous with high end touches. The location was great we walked to the shops and over the bridge to the beach. We enjoyed easy access to boca and delray . The house is very spacious and has a screened in porch for dining . We just had our morning coffee out there on the porch

The dining room table seated 12 of us easily. The pool is very private and tropical. The decorating is truly special. The aqua and cream touches were so pretty. We felt like we made new friends with garland and joy !

Spectacular, incredible stay

  • 5 of 5

Where do I begin. From the moment we arrived the experience was beyond great. Checkin was easy and smooth. Garland greeted us at the property, him and Joy were beyond amazing. The property grounds are peaceful clean and beautiful. Everything you need those are the only words that come to mind. We spent 4 nights and 5 days. Anything needed garland and joy are there to attend too. Units are perfect size, beyond clean and modern. Perfect perfect getaway for long and short stays. Location very convenient. I typically love delray in general so finding this gem topped it all off. All I can say is I would def rent this property again.

Five ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

  • 5 of 5

Yes we loved this place. The location is within a walk to the beach and downtown is just a few blocks away. The grounds are very well maintained and very clean and you can easily have six people staying there. I loved the out side shower and the pool is heated. It is a plus for my family and friends to come over and all the flowers 🌺 were beautiful! They have done a spectacular job thanks to both of you for everything we definitely will be back ❤️

Delray Beach

Why Delray Beach? Why not Miami or West Palm or Ft. Lauderdale or Singer Island? Delray Beach is an idyllic seaside village with many attractions that offer a variety of things to do, many of which are described below. But in addition, Delray Beach is ideally located just north of Boca Raton, 20 minutes from Ft. Lauderdale and an hour north of Miami. It is 20 minutes south of West Palm and Palm Beach, with lots to do in all places. You can have breakfast or lunch in South Beach and stroll the promenade of Lincoln Road shops or hit the design district in Miami for new decor ideas. Ft. Lauderdale has great live music and lots of sidewalk cafes, and great happy hours. Boca has Mizner Park, with entertainment and sidewalk cafe restaurants, be sure to take your Lexus and valet park for free.

Casino entertainment is just west of there, with headline acts and gambling to your heart's content. The BB&T Center in Ft. Lauderdale boasts national entertainers and rock bands like Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band or Katy Perry. Florida Atlantic University gets first rate national speakers like former President Bill Clinton or Watergate sleuths Woodward and Bernstein. West Palm has the new Palm Beach outlets with over 100 outlet stores in the making and Cityplace downtown for live music, restaurants and shops. The Kravis Center for musicals and plays is also close by. Antique Row is a few short blocks away as is Palm Beach which needs no description.

Delray Beach...what every beach town should be...

In addition to a great central location in between all these great towns, Delray Beach is special all on its own. Nationally recognized as the Most Fun Small City in America, Delray Beach is what we wish every beach town could be. It is a walking village with lots of shops and restaurants and Johnny Brown's for live rock and roll and Elvis lookalikes. Delray has a public beach prettier than many private beaches, with deluxe cabanas for rent, or in the case of Villa Athena, complimentary to our guests. Delray has a variety of restaurants offering happy hour specials and you can walk from place to place sampling the best that each has to offer. The Downtowner is a free golf cart shuttle that picks you up wherever you are downtown or at the beach and takes you to your next adventure. The Delray Tennis Center is a few blocks away, and Pineapple Grove on Second Avenue has Pilates, yoga, a fitness center, beauty salons and spas. The Delray Beach Library downtown is new and modern, with friendly staff to guide you to the best vacation reading. It also hosts guests speakers periodically throughout the year on a variety of historical and current event topics. In short, Delray Beach is the perfect place to vacation and all who are fortunate enough to experience it come back again and again to enjoy the 'Village by the Sea.'
