Gulf Stream

Elite seaside retreat with spectacular views


Welcome to Gulf Stream

Tucked between Palm Beach and Boca Raton, Gulf Stream is a small tropical community settled along the crystal clear waters of the Atlantic and Florida’s Intracoastal Waterway. Boasting some of the most breathtaking views on the East Coast, this exclusive enclave thrives off a close-knit atmosphere with only about 800 residents, placing locals near the attractions of neighboring Delray Beach with its cozy cafes, galleries, and boutiques. Its central location puts it near three major airports, including Boca Raton’s Private Executive Airport, where residents can leave and arrive in all the enviable exclusivity they desire.
Founded as a country club community in the 1920s, this prestigious town takes its name from the Gulf Stream of the Atlantic Ocean, experiencing a pleasant year-round climate characterized by sunny blue skies. Oceanfront estates boasting secluded private beaches and deep water dockage for boats and yachts, as well as sleek condominiums overlooking the dazzling waters fill the town, and even the most discerning buyers are guaranteed to be pleased.

Local Lifestyle

Gorgeous waterfront views and a landscape dotted with exquisite mansions imbues Gulf Stream with an air of elegance. Secluded and private, living in Gulf Stream offers residents a coastal suburban feel with access to every thinkable luxury. Blissful ocean breezes permeate the warm atmosphere, while locals live mere steps away from the ocean.

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

While Gulf Stream might not be overflowing with assorted shopping and dining spots, it lies within arm’s reach of the treasures of Delray Beach. Locals can browse authentic French fashion pieces at the glamorous Voyage Boutique, where a seamstress is always available to alter your pick if it needs to be adjusted. Get your favorite pieces of art framed, bejeweled, or repainted at the Amanda James Gallery, and be sure to stop into The Big Apple Shopping Bazaar for a collection of jewelry stores, fashion boutiques, gifts, and groceries all in one big marketplace.
Enigma Bistro is a favorite stop for conch chowder, creamy lobster Bisque, and croquettes served with refreshing sangria. The restaurant’s airy vibes and impeccable service keeps customers coming back for more. At Sundy House, you can treat yourself to a feast of eggs benedict, oysters, and shrimps with a mimosa. This historic establishment set into a 1902 Queen Anne-style building overlooking a rock pool and lush gardens is the perfect idea for scrumptious dinners with a view.

Things to Do

Enjoy a stroll along the sandy shores of Delray Public Beach, renowned as one of the most accessible beaches from I-95 and boasting volleyball courts, kite-flying areas, frisbees, and chair rentals. People can also swim, surf or sail. Bring your boats out for a fishing ride along the lake at Lake Ida Park, where bikers can also have a swell time on its many trails, and pet parents can bring their dogs for a walk.
Gulfstream Park is a premier thoroughbred racing track and entertainment destination in South Florida, featuring a casino, bowling, and art gallery. Set out for a dreamy adventure along the calm waters of the Atlantic with Delray Yacht Cruises, or drive your family out for a picnic on the green grasses of Jaycee Park.
