An oyster in the raw......

So. There is this amazing little jewel of a resort (but...they are all jewels aren't they?)
on only an acre...though it could be in a tropical rain forest somewhere.
5000 different species of tropical plants...(5000!)
and colorful birds taboot.


It is unpretentuous. Quiet.
a treasure chest of a place.
ahhhhh

It has an organic (sans chlorine) pool that have fish swimming in it.
Waterfalls splash gigundus leaved Taro plants...
appropriately, as it is called Taro Gardens.


And all a part of the Sundy House in Historic Delray Beach, FL.

Tiny, yet huge, hidden... yet full of personality.

There are tropical trails throughout the garden...


Gazebos where you can dine.



Only 11 rooms...or little cottages. Beautifully appointed.



A little village all of it's own.

Each room/cottage different...different art, different color...

Simple. Not over the top. Like a good friend.


It is called the Sundy House...after the 8 term mayor that lived in it.
Victorian...with a touch of fun!



The restaurant puts out THE most amazing brunch I have ever been offered...
ever. And food and wine magazine agrees.
The gardens are simply beautiful, and you can stroll between courses...
or dine out with the flora...and some singing colorful birds.
why not?

Don't worry...you won't bother them in the least.
they are happily home...too!

SUNDY HOUSE.....close,
but sooo far.

Natalie said...

I absolutely *must* stay there...soon!

Oh, I hope we sell lots of houses this year because I will be spending some time in Del Ray.

It's my idea of heaven on earth...or better yet, Florida!

Linda, Finally a post of some place that I have been. I didn't know about the pool because I have only been there for dinner and brunch. The food was always top notch and the gardens are so beautiful.

Linda at Lime in the Coconut! said...

Cool Bridget! Isn't it a great little haven? The pool was up one of the paths and up a few coralstone stairs.

Natalie...go...if even just for their amazing sunday brunch! Worth the drive (say I)!

How amazing is that? I love the interior and the color splashes. I can't belive it's in FL! Would have guessed some tropical island or the rain forest... Love it!

And thank you for your comment. I totally agree about fairy tales, my daughter is only 10 months old, and allready has a vast collection of fairy tale books.. Lol!

YUM!!! Ok, this is going on my list of definite places I'm visiting. Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous. They should thank you for being such a fantastic tour guide and spokes person. I thank you for all of these wonderful, virtual vacations. They lift my spirits and weary mind while undergoing this crazy renovation of mine over here. Thanks for the treats! They are divine!

That looks so - W.A.R.M. - it's still below zero here ...whine whine whine. It's amazing to me that it is only an acre - they've done a masterful job of landscaping and "tucking" and "hiding". Thank you
