About the property

Pristine and private tropical getaway, minutes from city and beach sleeps 10

Hacienda Barcelona, a 1926 Mission-Style historic home, has been totally renovated and expanded into an exquisite 4 bedroom, 4 bath private oasis with lush tropical gardens, elegant loggia, private salt-water pool and hot tub. The brand-new kitchen with expansive granite island is open to a huge family room with wall of French doors with panoramic views of the loggia and pool. One wall of the family room is an elegant wet bar with full-sized ice machine to ensure you never run out of ice for your cool tropical beverages. Three of four bedrooms open onto the loggia and pool and each has plentiful closet space. The master bedroom has soaring 20 foot ceilings and a marble bath with step-in glass shower and private WC. Another bedroom/den also has a 20 foot ceiling, plantation shutters over giant windows and an original 1926 tongue in groove cypress ceiling. In addition there is a formal living room with gas fireplace, dining room adjacent to the kitchen and large laundry and storage room. The circular Chicago brick driveway provides convenient off-street parking. Broadband WiFi is accessible throughout the house.

The El Cid neighborhood, established in the 1920's on the site of a former pineapple plantation, hugs the Intracoastal waterway less than a mile from the restaurants and clubs of downtown West Palm Beach. The neighborhood is filled with majestic mature palms and gorgeous well-maintained historic homes, many of the Mediterranean Revival and Mission styles. Only one block from Hacienda Barcelona you will stroll past the Ann Norton Sculpture Garden on your way to the breathtaking Intracoastal waterway and it's spectacular bike and walking path.

Hacienda Barcelona is only minutes from Palm Beach International Airport, downtown West Palm Beach, CityCenter (an outdoor urban mall with movie theaters, restaurants and high-end shops), and The Kravis Center for the Performing Arts. Whether you are looking for the farmer's market, a diversity of restaurants, nightclubs, movie theaters or shopping, it is right there. It's also a short drive or bike to the shopping, restaurants, beaches and glamour of Palm Beach, including the iconic Breakers resort. The Palm Beach public beach is a mile away and provides access to the azure waters and gentle waves of the Atlantic Ocean. Guests can take a short 3 block walk to a brand-new Publix grocery store (scheduled to open in February 2016) and a quick 10-minute drive to the new Palm Beach Outlet Mall and Whole Foods.

About Nancy

We are a beach-loving family of 6 who has been vacationing in West Palm Beach for years. When the opportunity to renovate our own historic vacation home in our favorite neighborhood arose we jumped on it. Because all four of our kids are still in school we are only able to visit West Palm Beach intermittently throughout the year.

Nancy purchased this house in 2013

Why Nancy chose El Cid

Hacienda Barcelona is near everything! We walk on the intracoastal waterway which is only one block away. We bike to the beach. We walk to many local dining spots, City Place, the Kravis Center and the Convention Center. When not out and about we relax in the wonderful tropical gardens surrounding the pool and hot tub.

A little slice of paradise

  • 5 of 5

We found our stay at Hacienda Barcelona to be just what we hoped for and more. Great location to food and a variety of activities. And if you are looking for that beautiful getaway place and would like to have a few days of quiet and retreat, this is also a great place to accommodate those needs as well. The manager and owner are great to work with and help to make your stay as pleasant as they can. We felt welcomed and accommodated both. We hope to return again someday.

Absolutely wonderful!!

  • 5 of 5

This our 2nd two week stay at this wonderful house. As with our 1st stay, things were perfect. Location is ideal (Grato - truly one of the best eats in PB) is two short blocks away. The inter-coastal is a VERY short walk away. Layout of the house could not be better - two of the bedrooms (including the master suite) open right up to the pool. The pool and spa are spectacular. Everything you need is furnished.

The best way to convey how we feel - we will be back again next year for our 3rd stay!!

Clean, bright and well-appointed,

  • 5 of 5

Hacienda Barcelona was the perfect house for a family vacation. The house was bright and clean, the decor simple, and the appliances were new and easy to use. The large kitchen and living room space, which opens to the yard, was especially nice. The property manager was friendly and helpful. For West Palm Beach, which is not the most walking friendly city, this is a great location as there are many shops and restaurants nearby along Dixie Highway, and its a quick drive, taxi or bike ride to Palm Beach. A great spot!
