About the property

This property is in a class all it's own and centrally located only minutes from Downtown West Palm Beach/CityPlace, Palm Beach International Airport and Palm Beach Island. It is professionally managed, extremely well maintained, and simply put, a very cool place to hang out whether your travels bring you to the West Palm Beach area for business or pleasure!

The Orchid House is the Shangri La of our West Palm Beach Vacation Rentals and is appointed with tasteful furnishings, upscale amenities and beautiful artwork fills the walls of every room.

Before you booking, you will have a conversation with a real person (me). This is our East Coast home and I want you to ensure you as welcomed and comfortable as possible prior to booking and throughout your entire stay. Shortly after your arrival our personal concierge will stop by to make sure you are connected, settled, questions answered and everything meets or exceeds expectations.

Relax and enjoy the exquisite outdoor South Florida weather. The beautiful salt water pool and private backyard is surrounded by hundreds of orchids that bloom continually throughout the year. Take advantage of the private outdoor living area and dining with seating available for up to eight.

The main house boasts a top of the line chef's kitchen with breakfast bar, a dining room that seats six comfortably, large living room and a separate tropical media room with a large 65 inch HDTV with access to cable. There are two bedroom suites. One is downstairs with a king bed, flat screen TV and sitting area that leads directly to the outside living area and pool. The second bedroom is upstairs with a queen bed and flat screen TV. Both feature luxury en-suite marble baths. There is an additional marble powder room on the first floor for guests. Every room is graced with beautiful artwork, making it a bonus for those interested in fine art. A home for the discerning traveler as you will not find a better place to fully and completely enjoy your time away.

For additional guests wanting a little more privacy, the detached guest cottage is 600 sq. ft. and sleeps for another 2-4. There is a private bedroom suite with king bed overlooking the pool, full bathroom and walk in closet. The sofa in the living room folds down to a queen size bed. The cottage has its own complete kitchen and dining for 4. This is the perfect place for ultimate privacy.

Location, location, location! City Place, boasting over 50 shops, movie theater, restaurants and entertainment is a short walk from the home. Dixie Hwy, located nearby, is home to some of the best restaurants in Palm Beach County and "Antique Row" home to the top antique shops in South Florida. For those preferring to dine in, Publix has opened a brand-new grocery store just a few blocks away and Whole Foods is located in the Palm Beach Outlets Plaza, only a 10 minute drive north off I-95.

Beautiful pool and backyard!

  • 4 of 5

The house is very well equipped, not kid friendly at all as the art made us nervous. The neighborhood is older, not walkable to any restaurants or beaches etc. we drove everywhere and found nice beaches in Delray, Deerfield and Jupiter. The downtown PB area is nice and a 10 minute drive. Overall we enjoyed our stay and would recommend the home, just know it’s a drive everywhere you go.

Perfect Spring Training Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying in this house. We had three couples in our group and there was plenty of room to dine as a group or to just hangout on our own. The property was very clean and the kitchen had everything we needed to cook meals. The pool was heated and was very clean. This property is less than 20 minutes away from Clematis Street, City Center, and the Atlantic Ocean. We would definitely stay there again and would refer it to any of our friends traveling in the West Palm Beach area.

All good especially the fantastic outdoor space.

  • 5 of 5

Super space particularly the outdoors. While we did not use the pool we enjoyed the outdoor space daytime and night time. Great logistics to pall parks (we were there for spring training) and City scape/center. I would recommend this property to others.

Another Awesome Week at Orchid House

  • 5 of 5

A group of six Washington Nationals baseball fans enjoyed their second annual trip to West Palm Beach and their second stay at the fabulous Orchid House. Great Location. Great House. Great Support. We highly recommend the house to anyone desiring a bit of paradise in the Palm Beach area.

Cozy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

House was perfect for our three generation trip. My son's young family of five stayed in the pool cottage, my daughter and husband had the whole upstairs to themselves, while my husband and I had the huge master. The weather wasn't the best but the pool was so warm my grandchildren spent hours swimming. For the cost of one hotel room we had a roomy house to hang out with the family. The home was generously stocked when we got here. All of the basic supplies I purchased when I landed were already here. SAMM was a wonderful concierge and was here to welcome us. I highly recommend this home for anyone lucky enough to stay here!
