Dog Friendly Gated Community Boca Raton | Newport Bay Club

Hi there.  We're Fiona and Toby and we're from New York.  Our mom and dad decided they would like to spend some time in Boca Raton, so naturally we come along.  You didn't think they were going without us, did you?


At first, mom and dad were thinking about a pet-friendly condo in Boca Raton.  They googled and found a pet-friendly REALTOR®. 



They all got along well, so we started to look into condos at the beach.  The thing is, the buildings had a lot of rules about where we could walk and more.  We weren't too keen on going out through the garage or being carried, and we wanted open space to run.  Oh, what to do!



pool home in dog friendly gated community in boca raton floridaThe lady REALTOR® who loves dogs suggested a house in a pet-friendly gated community in Boca Raton That way, she said, we would have a backyard to run in, we would have some space.  We thought, Hey, not a bad idea.  She might be onto something here.  If the house had a pool and a fenced yard, we've got it made. We can run around or just lounge in the sun.  Let's give it a look.




The pet-friendly REALTOR® in Boca took mom, dad and both of us to gated communities in Boca and Delray, and non-gated communities, too.  We liked the houses, especially the houses with pools and some land.  Don't forget, we want to run!  If we have some land, we can run.


We finally found a house we liked in a dog-friendly gated community in Boca called Newport Bay Club.  It was a short ride to the beach, and we could even see some relatives nearby.  Now, we had a plan. 


Mom and Dad put an offer on the house we liked (Oh, and we forgot to tell you we have a 2-legged brother who liked it too.)  Their offer was accepted.  Yes!  Back to New York we went to wait for the closing. 


Guess what?  We closed on our house yesterday.  We've already hung out by the pool and chased some balls, but we're excited to get out and make some new friends in the neighborhood.  And we will!

Elyse immediately ‘got’ us

We found Elyse on-line after working with another realtor that was not helping us find what we wanted. Elyse immediately ‘got’ us and showed us the right properties while providing encyclopedic knowledge of neighborhoods, dog restrictions, lifestyle options and benefits/trade offs between one house/neighborhood and the other. Elyse consistently provided important information at every stage of our process. As out-of-towners this was essential to our making the right decision. We couldn’t be happier or more grateful to Elyse for everything she’s done. Elyse is a rare combination of being a true subject matter expert and, more importantly, a genuinely caring person who looks after her people.

Hi Elyse,  Thanks for sharing this great story.  It is so important for people to be free to move with their pets - it's nice to have those Realtors we can count on.

Hi Bob, I'm so glad you enjoyed the story. You're exactly right.  The beach had just too many rules for them.  It's been a while now and they are happily ensconced in their new home.  Stay safe!
