The modern kitchen is completely equipped. There's a huge one piece French Oak dining table for great dinners and conversation, plus a breakfast bar for less formal eating. Each bedroom is an oasis in itself. The lush landscaping is simply gorgeous. Exotic palms surround the house. The front garden has a wonderful zen-like feel with a little bench for contemplation or just a spot to be alone. Of course the salt water pool is the centre of activity. The beautiful sandy beaches of the Atlantic are just minutes away. El Cortijo is located just off Dixie south of Belvedere Road and north of Southern Boulevard and a short walk from the Lake Worth Lagoon. There's excellent jogging by the lake. The airport is two miles west, the ocean is less than a mile east and downtown/City Place/Clematis Street is a mile to the north. Interstate 95 is nearby using either Southern Boulevard or Belvedere Road. The Flagler Museum is close by as are The Breakers, The Norton Gallery, Palm Beach Zoo, Singer Island. Disney is 2 hours away. All in all a great location and oh so very private! COVID-19 restrictions and expectations are in effect. We are taking utmost care in preparing El Cortijo for our guests. It's a very special place. You will be pleased. Thank you. Please Note! El Cortijo is NOT a party house. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: 000011485#2019113077More

Thank you for your thoughtful review, Renée. We're glad you were pleased with EL Cortijo. You mentioned the planes .. They get re-routed whenever the president is in town and are more evident as all aircraft have to avoid Mar-a-Lago, which is a mile away...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 jacuzzi...
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.
