I live in the community in one of the houses. It has an awesome tennis center and many activities. Since I am at the low end of the age scale (55) I was a bit worried about a 55+ community but since moving here from NY. I have been very active and social.
I see that a few of my colleagues have provided you with detailed information about Kings Point's pet policy and the Rainberry Bay villas. Just to further clarify, IMO there are a few significant differences between the two communities. Rarely does one compare Rainberry to Kings Point. Each community has it's own unique features, positives and negatives.

You may find that most of the 55+ communities in Delray Beach are more strict about pets, whereas a larger number of all-age condos have more liberal pet policies. Ask your Delray Beach real estate agent to run a search for you, so you will know beforehand whether the condo you find appealing will alow your small dog.
I have met several people who, because their Delray condominium communities did not allow pets, were able to get their small dogs classified as "service dogs." However, this usually requires extensive documentation from a physician; usually, it also results in very unfriendly neighbors.

Unfortunately you will find that many of the 55+ communities in the Delray Beach area, including Kings Point, have a no pet policy. There are some age restricted communities that do allow pets and Rainberry Bay is one of them. Rainberry is a great community and at this time there are plenty of single family homes available with prices ranging from $102,900 up to $265,000 and you will find a wide variety in the condition of these homes.
The town home or villa inventory is very limited at this time in Rainberry with only a few current listings. Sales of town homes in the development, like much of the south Florida market, are very strong with 9 recent closings and an additional 4 units currently under contract. Sold prices in this segment are running between $60,000 and $94,500 and again you will find significant differences in the quality of the finishes.
I work almost entirely as a buyers agent throughout Palm Beach County and certainly would be honored to be on the list of RealtorsÂ® you interview and happy to be of assistance in any way that I can. I hope this information is helpful but if you need anything additional please do not hesitate to give me a call.
Always at Your Service,

King's Point does not allow pets. They would however, have to allow "service animals". That is a topic you would have to get resolved with your physician.
You can have small pets at Rainberry Bay, but I find the location less convenient to shopping and restaurants.
There are many other lovely communities in the are where you would be allowed to have a dog. Please contact me directly if I can be of further service.
Kings Point does not allow pets and have many units available for sale. Villas in Rainberry Bay do allow pets up to 25 lbs. There are only 3 villas available for sale in Rainberry ranging in price from $73,900-$94,900. It is a lovely community which has many tennis courts. Please email me if you need further info.
