What do guests like about Pier Walk the most?
Our guests love vacationing or having a workcation where they can walk only one block to the Deerfield Beach Boardwalk. And the convenience of having a beautiful, heated swimming pool at their doorstep. The walkability of our location is also one of our most in-demand amenities, with the main strip that has all the great shops and restaurants needed for daily errands within a 10-15 minute walk.
Pier Walk is a complex of 20 boutique furnished apartments with 26 parking spaces on Deerfield Island: 12 studios, 7-one bedrooms, and one two-bedroom. It has 22 listings that can host anywhere from 1 guest up to 16 guests at a time for larger groups and families. We're family-owned and managed with several hundred happy, returning guests. After booking, guests receive our detailed online local guidebook and property house manual as well as a video tour link of the entire space to properly plan their stay.
Do you allow monthly stays?
We offer lenght of stay discounts in order to accommodate short-term, mid-term, and extended stays for guests who want to relax by the beach or for the work-from-paradise guest that needs high-speed WiFi for productive video calls or streaming TV. Stays of 45 days or more require monthly cleanings at a cost of $95 for studios, $105 for one-bedrooms, and $125 for two bedrooms. There's no other housekeeping included. Pier Walk provides all the starter supplies for the first few days guests need to settle in. After that, guests are responsible for their own supplies and must purchase as much or as little as needed.
Do you have high-speed WiFi?
We offer Comcast High-Speed WiFi. High-speed is 100mbps on the 5GHz network and 50mbps on the 2.4GHz network.
Can I get mail delivery and packages?
There’s no mailbox available so USPS won’t deliver. However, you can rent a mailbox from the local post office or UPS store or use services such as Amazon hub locker to receive deliveries.
Generally, FedEx, UPS, Uber Eats, Grub Hub, Delivery Dudes, Shipt, Instacart, etc will all deliver straight to your door with no problem.
But if you have something that might take longer than your reservation, then you may want to order it a few days before you arrive so that the delivery window falls between the dates of your stay. Make sure they have your phone number.
What TV services do you provide?
TV includes a free Roku channel with over 1,200 free movies, shows, music, and 1,115 live TV channels included. So there's ALWAYS something entertaining to watch for the whole family whether it's crime, drama, documentaries, cartoons, sports, thrillers, or music on Pandora! Please note: we do not provide cable TV service. For cable TV, you must purchase your own live and local TV subscription from Hulu or another streaming service.
Are there any safety concerns I should know about?
Pier Walk is located on the Deerfield Beach Barrier Island which is basically a very cute, quiet little beach town. But we advise all our guests to take the normal precautions you would take in any metropolitan city. Our properties have an exterior video camera system for the security of the property and the safety of our community.
What is your cancellation policy?
Moderate policy, no refunds under 30 days' notice of check-in. If cancellation is made within 30 days of the check-in date, the base rental amount will not be refunded, but the reservation dates may be traded for an equal period of time within 6-12 months of the original reservation.
Our website now offers all guests the option to purchase CFAR (Cancel for Any Reason) travel insurance. Even for worst-case scenarios where there is no reason covered, there is still 60% coverage of your costs. Please select this option during your booking process if you are not certain of your travel plans.

What do I do with trash?
The cleaning company will take care of it. If you need to throw away any
garbage bags or larger items during your stay, the dumpster is located on the northeast side of the building, through the courtyard. Please make sure to collapse and flatten all boxes. All items must fit fully inside the dumpster with the lid down.
Why do you have quiet hours and what are they?
Our quiet hours are from 9 pm to 7 am. Pier Walk is a complex of 20 units connected to a courtyard with a swimming pool in the center, so quiet hours are to ensure the peace and quiet of your stay and of the entire community.
Do you have a propane BBQ Grill? How do I use it?
Yes, we have a barbeque grill that is available to all Pier Walk guests. Our BBQ grill uses propane gas tanks that are stored in the bottom cabinet below the grill. To operate, turn the shut-off valve located on the top of the propane tank clockwise to open the gas supply.
Once the propane tank is open, push the igniter button and then turn the control knob on the front panel clockwise to open the gas for the burner you choose. This and other info about the property is in our online guidebook under “House Manual” here: https://hostful.ly/gngldkb

Pier Walk is a family-owned and family-managed vacation rental boutique. After traveling the world together for the past 10 years, they’ve noticed that they’ve had to pay higher and higher prices to get a good stay.
While they don't mind spending luxury rates for a luxury stay, they don't believe you should have to pay luxury rates just to get a good stay.
They like to think their properties have everything they'd expect without having to pay high rates just to get it. A good location, at a good value, and a good experience. Because that's what they expect when they travel!
Why do we feature vintage postcards from Florida?
Throughout all our vacation rentals, vintage postcards from the 1930s through the 1960s are featured.
Our tagline, "Postcards from South Florida" is about the story of vacation travel in Deerfield and South Florida. And each framed postcard we display tells its own story from real people that visited once upon a time.
But it's also a metaphor for the experiences of our guests at Pier Walk. Because each of our guests has their own story, too. At Pier Walk, our goal is to help create wonderful stories, memories, and experiences during your stay with us.
From our in-depth guidebooks to all the details of art, story and history we pour into each property, we take many great efforts in the hopes that you'll fall in love with Deerfield, too.
