About Rob Barbaree

I, FRED D. BARBAREE BOUGHT OUR HOME, AFTER RETURNING FROM LIVING 11 1/2 YEARS IN ASIA, WHERE I SERVED AS A PEACE CORPS VOLUNTEER IN WEST PAKISTAN AND AS AN ARCHITECT WITH LOUIS I KAHN ON PROJECTS IN EAST PAKISTAN (BANGLADESH) AND NEPAL. BOTH MY SONS WERE BORN IN KATHMANDU AND THERE DECEASED MOTHER WAS A BRITISH ACTRESS NAMED LOVEDAY. I, WITH MY SWEETY, RESIDE MOSTLY IN SAN MIGUEL DE ALLENDE, MEXICO AND MY SON ROBIN MANAGES THE RENTALS AND MAINTENANCE OF OUR HOME.

Rob Barbaree purchased this house in 1976

Why Rob Barbaree chose Palm Beach County

I GREW UP IN DELRAY BEACH, AFTER MY FAMILY MOVED TO FLORIDA IN 1946. OUR HOME WAS PURCHASED FROM A FAMILY FRIEND, WHOSE FAMILY CONSTRUCTED THE ORIGINAL HOME IN 1939. MY SON ROBIN CONSTRUCTED THE GARDEN COTTAGE, LANDSCAPED AND RESTORED AND REMODELED BOTH TWO BEDROOM APARTMENTS TO CREATE MODERN AND COZY RETREATS IN AN EXCLUSIVE AND BEAUTIFUL LUSH TROPICAL NEIGHBORHOOD.

What makes this house unique

OUR WOOD FRAMED HOME IS BEAUTIFULLY DETAILED WITH OAK HARDWOOD FLOORS, KNOTTY CYPRESS CEILING, AREAS OF PANELING AND MOLDING. MUCH OF THE PAINTINGS ARE ORIGINALS BY MY ARTIST SWEETY AND SKETCHES OF KATHMANDU BY ME. THE FLORIDA ROOMS LOOK OUT ONTO THE LUSH TROPICAL GARDEN. AS WE HAVE MANY FOND MEMORIES OF OUR HOMESTEAD, I AM SURE YOU WILL CREATE LOVELY MEMORIES DURING YOUR BRIEF VISIT AND ENJOY THE BEACH (ONE BLOCK AWAY AND BEAUTIFUL DOWNTOWN (ATLANTIC AVENUE THREE BLOCKS AWAY)...

Clean and comfy.

  • 4 of 5

We were here for a whole week and were really able to wind-down. The beach "membership" was an added bonus. We didn't have to schlep beach chairs and umbrellas- we just took a short walk with our towels and found a great piece of beach!

I would recommend this property

Loveday House is lovely!

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for our daughter's graduation from FAU. The owners graciously allowed us to have a graduation party at the house. It was the perfect spot for a garden party and everyone who came loved the house and the patio. When you step from the street down the path through the beautiful screen of tropical plants and trees to the front door, you pass through time into Florida of old. It was idyllic and serene. We had a wonderful time and no one wanted to leave!

It had recently rained a lot so the mosquitos were out in force. Kathy was great and brought new wicks for the tiki lanterns, gave us special "go away mosquito" stuff, and bug spray to help keep the mosquitos away. It all worked wonderfully, as we were able to stay outside for the whole party. Kathy was very attentive and responsive to our needs and even accommodated a late departure.

The kitchen had sufficient kitchen tools and ware for cooking meals. There were plenty of towels and linens too. House was nicely updated while maintaining the old charm. We would absolutely stay here again. Conveniently located to the beach and Atlantic Blvd. Loveday house is indeed lovely!

Lovedays Beach House

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had a fabulous time vacationing in Delray Beach. Robin greeted us upon our arrival and made sure we were situated in his very lovely home. We could not have asked for a better place to stay. Robin has an annual beach membership that provides complimentary beach chairs and umbrellas on the beach. The only thing we needed to carry to the beach was a beach towel and snacks. (the beach is literally a 3 minute walk from Robin's home) If you have never been to Delray Beach, you should definitely plan a trip there. Atlantic Avenue is only a few short walking blocks away. The "Avenue" as the locals refer to it, is packed with tons of restaurants, art galleries, and a wide variety of stores. Delray Beach also offers a few different forms of "free transportation". (YES... FREE!!!!) The Downtowner is a golf cart service that will pick you up from Robins house and take you anywhere within Delray downtown area. There is also the Downtown Roundabout Trolley that will take you up and down the Avenue and runs to and from the Tri-Rail station also. We never had a reason to get into our car for the week that we spent in Delray.. Robins house is immaculate. The house is actually larger than it appears on the website. The back yard is beautiful and we enjoyed the use of the BBQ grill and the bicycles. We will definitely be returning to Robins home in Delray Beach for our next vacation. It's like a little slice of heaven.
