About Paul Finizio

While taking a slow drive on A1A we decided to park and take an ocean front walk to watch the beautiful morning sunrise. Curious as to what these little casitas were, while on our walk, we took a look at property and fell in love with it so we bought the only one available at the time (casita #1). That was 2004 and we have enjoyed it ever since. Paul is a lawyer of 30+ years in Ft. Lauderdale, FL and Barbara a CPA. We have 3 grown daughters - 2 living in NYC and the other an engineering student at University of FL. We loved spending time with our girls at the casita when they were younger and so happy we had those moments as they grew up so fast. We hope, if you book, you will experience the same joy and peace we do each time we go.

Why Paul Finizio chose Delray Beach

It is direct ocean front - the beach being just 16 steps from the front door. The resort style pool is also just steps from front door. It is a magical place!

What makes this house unique

Create memories with family and friends while listening to the ocean break on the sand and seagulls flying above. Also, on a windy day you can enjoy watching wind surfers ride the waves. The moon rises are just as spectacular as the sunrises and glisten beautifully at night on the ocean. Also, sit in the heated jacuzzi by day or night and have great conversations with your family and friends.

Beautiful oceanfront

  • 5 of 5

Adorable, quaint complex. The oceanfront view is beautiful. The patio is a perfect place for an Oceanside meal. The unit was well appointed and a great home away from home.

Great location! A real hidden gem of South Florida!

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice, quaint village by the sea. It’s quite and private with completely private beach access. You’ll be just a few steps away from white sand when you stay here on the lush, well manicured property. The owners are very responsive and will tend to all of your needs. Why stay anywhere else?

Loved the casita!

  • 5 of 5

We were in love with this casita from the moment we walked in!

Incredibly cozy, yet at the same time well appointed with everything we needed. It felt tiny at first, but after a few hours it felt like home. It was super clean and tidy, and the furnishings fun, with a French flair. The private beach front patio was the “piece de resistance!” We hope to return year after year, if we can find the availability for our time.

Thank you Barbara and Paul.

Perfectly Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Such a gem. Barbara made sure we had everything we needed from beach towels to beach toys for the kids, to toiletry samples in the linen closet, ready to use if you forgot or had to fly. You are close to everything you might need or want, but you feel far away from it all. The property is beautiful, the water was clear blue, the views are fantastic. Our kids had a blast and we loved every minute of it. Only suggestion for upgrade would be that the dishwasher is a bit wonky - falling open if you don't shut it with all your might - but it did not detract from our stay at all. Thanks Barbara and Paul for sharing your wonderful spot with us!

This was exactly what my husband and I needed. Upon entering the spanish style Casitas, you walk up the sidewalk through beautiful, colorful flowers and trees . This Casita did not disappoint! Oceanfront, where everywhere you look it's all heavenly blue! The house is seaside cottage done in soft soothing colors. Everything needed for a comfortable stay was here! Some of our favorites things were watching the sun set from our patio while sipping drinks and having appetizers. We also watched the sunrise and I saw some dolphins swimming in the ocean. I would highly recommend this gem of a place. Stroll on the beach or drive to happening Atlantic avenue bustling with restaurants, shops etc. We can't wait to come back! Thank you so much!
