Sundy House, Florida

Hiding in an acre overflowing with 500 tropical plant species is the fantastical Sundy House, an oasis in downtown Delray Beach. Though the Victorian-era house is a landmark on the National Register of Historic Places, it's anything but dusty. In every corner, you'll discover unique details: a bed suspended in air, a sunset painted on the ceiling, red-cork wallpaper, and blue suede walls. Swim with turtles and angelfish in the naturally filtered swimming pond. Venturing away from this self-contained wonderland only brings more pleasures, like snorkeling or windsurfing in the southern Atlantic, minutes away. Stay for Sundy's Sunday brunch, a lavish affair with everything from eggs Benedict made with Florida lobster to raspberry ham with mango cole slaw. Doubles from $175; 561-272-5678,
