If you are looking for a beach condo in Delray Beach, consider the Dover House, located on Ocean Boulevard about three blocks south of Atlantic Avenue. It is a friendly, safe place with very friendly staff and other renters. As mentioned, located within easy walking distance of the Dover House is Atlantic Avenue with lots of restaurants, beach shops, and (of course) bars.
I live in Delray Beach and rented a condo at the Dover House for my parents (78 yrs old) and a second unit for my sister and niece in late April. It was perfect. Each place is cute and clean with a reasonable kitchen, sitting area, eating area, and a fantastic location on Ocean Boulevard. Both units were on the second floor (recommended) and each could see a view of the ocean from their window and a better view if they sat out in the lawn chairs provided on the porch in front of their room (each room--it is a large shared patio). The ocean is right there--10 steps across Ocean Boulevard. On the sand you can rent two comfortable lounge chairs and an umbrella for $10/hr or $40 per day (separate vendor, very nice guy).
The Dover House has a nice pool on the property--further down the property (not in view of the ocean). I swam in it and enjoyed the water as well as the friendly visitors from the Northeast, Canada, and the mid-West.
The Dover House has two sections. Ask for the "further South" Dover House so that your room looks out on the ocean and the Dover House fountain/courtyard instead of the units that look out on the ocean and the Dover House parking lot. Ask, too, for a unit facing South with the east view, closest to the ocean on the second floor. I can't remember the unit numbers, perhaps unit 218 (not sure that exists) or 216.
By the way, the staff were incredibly helpful and kind, especially Luke and Jessie.
I highly recommend this place (as long as you are not looking for a five star hotel with room service). We will definitely stay there again.
