Interaction with guests
We wrote up a guide to help guests negotiate their way around the region with tips on shopping, directions to the beaches, attractions and a bit of history and so forth. Closer to arrival we provide what we call our orientation guest notes which are just helpful notes to make it a simple matter to settle in upon arrival. There is no need for concern about an exchange of keys as we have keyless entry for which we provide the code. Sometimes we are in Florida at the same time as guests. A lovely older couple watch over our homes there and are generally available and of course we are available all the time by telephone, text and email. We enjoy having a relationship and want our guests to be very happy.

The home was perfect for our family and in laws. We had two children (11 and 14), grandparents, and ourselves. The backyard is very private. You felt like you where completely isolated. You do hear airplane traffic outside, but inside the house you can not...More

About the neighbourhood
Located in the heart of historic 'antiques row' and minutes to City Place, the airport, shopping, museums, the zoo, fine restaurants and the glorious sandy shores of the Palm Beaches. El Cortijo is situated in a quiet, friendly neighbourhood and walking distance to the shores of Lake Worth which separates West Palm Beach and the island of Palm Beach. We give our guests a little guide which we wrote to make it easy to find your way about - supermarkets, shops, places to eat (City Diner is great and 5 minutes from the door) in the area and further afield; information about attractions and activities and of course directions to the nearby beaches.
There is parking for two vehicles in the gated driveway and additional parking on the street. The pool is salt water and heated as is the...
Getting around
While guests often say they hardly leave the house once they arrive, we think it is best for guests to have a car as there is so much to see -- so many nice beaches and places to go. Palm Beach County has a bus system and there is a bus stop nearby. It is a very short walk -- a couple of blocks -- over to the Intracoastal's Lake Worth Lagoon the other side of which is the Island of Palm Beach with Mar-a-Lago clearly visible.
Car advised
How to get there
Airport: Palm Beach International: 6.0 km
Railway: Amtrak: 4.2 km
Ferry: Port of Palm Beach: 10.0 km
Guests coming from overseas are advised that it's best to fly directly to Florida rather than going through New York. Winter storms in the north can adversely affect travel. Miami Airport is about an hour away with normal traffic. The Fort Lauderdale Airport is about 45 minutes away. The Palm Beach International is a real nice little airport and a very short drive to the property. We provide directions from each airport. South Florida also has a commuter train called the Tri-Rail ('Tri' representing the three counties: Palm Beach, Broward and Dade) which is an alternative and which has shuttles to the airport.
