Thanks for your interest and helpfulness. DH and I like the Deerfield Beach, FL area. We are looking to buy a condo or villa in an active retirement area with plenty of shopping, restaurants, beach, etc. around. Also looking in Hillsboro beach area. Haven't been to Delray or Boynton beach but am hearing that area is quieter with less shops, etc. Also possibly looking into a senior gated community like Century Village with all the amenities they offer like several pools, arts & crafts, entertainment theatre, free shuttle bus trans., etc. since DH and I are retired and young seniors (59 & 62 yrs. old). We are on a budget (would like to stay under $200,000 for 2 bedroom 2 bath condo) since we are still keeping our Westchester, NY home and looking to be a snowbird in Florida half the year. You mentioned Valencia in Boynton Beach. Do they have a gated senior community with villas and condos near the beach? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Valencia's are going to be over 200k.
I would check out Floral Lakes or Tuscany Bay
Floral Lakes is right off of Atlantic Ave in Delray so it will be a quick trip to lots of shopping and you can get a nice 1 story villa in the mid 100's.
Tuscany is in Boynton, a little closer to the beach, but one of the newest 55+ communities in that price range. Villas are also under 200k there.
Tropic Bay/Harbor are condos on the intra-coastal with nice views for under 200 and you are only a mile or so to the beach and very close to lots of shopping/restaurants. That actually might be your best fit.

Default Re:

Hello-

Not sure if you've found anything yet, but a few of our family owned condos are vacant at the moment and in Lake Worth - its a nice little beach community centrally located to where you're speaking of and Palm Beach. Mentioning in case you'd like to rent for a short time to feel out the areas on your own before you buy.

They come furnished and are on the intercoastal waterway in a safe area. Also, there's a gated pool, golf course in walking distance, shops nearby, etc.

I wish you luck in finding the right place, nonetheless. You really can't go wrong in that area - it's very peaceful and (from my experience) full of friendly folks.

Let me know if I can otherwise be of help.

Cheers,

Ashley
