LAKE WORTH BEACH COTTAGE

Lake Worth House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Baby, its starting to get cold outside. Come down to the Palm Beaches and the quaint town of Lake Worth for the warm tropical breezes, excellent dining, great outdoor sports (rarely gets below 60 here, even in January!), and way awesome beach. Unlike other warm-weather winter locales in the Carribean and Latin America, Florida and the Palm Beaches is an absolute bargain! We fill up pretty fast this time of year but, there are still a few weeks left if you are interested. Hope to see you all in the sun!

Our home is a cozy Key West style cottage in a quiet residential area. It is a single family home that has been recently tastefully updated with a new, fully stocked kitchen and is comfortably furnished with a queen bed and two twin beds. A wonderful getaway for someone looking for a quiet, relaxing, low-key beach getaway. The house is located in the quaint town of Lake Worth--'Where the Sub-Tropics Begin!': known for its fine restaurants, antique shops, nightlife, fishing, excellent surfing, and ocean beach. You'll enjoy free Wi-Fi, central air-conditioning, cable (flat screen) television and DVD library when staying at our home! In addition, while staying here you'll have access to your own private laundry and a lovely outdoor patio, hammock and barbecue. Our garden includes hibiscus, frangipani, lychee, night-blooming jasmine, cocoplum, and passionflower vine. There is even a private outdoor shower for rinsing off after a day at the beach or if you just want to clean up under the stars.

The Town of Lake Worth is on the Florida Intracoastal waterway, just minutes from City Place (West Palm Beach's premier shopping, entertainment and nightlife venue), the West Palm Beach International Airport, shopping, and the equestrian centers of nearby Wellington and world-renown PGA course. The house itself is 1 mile from the ocean beach, three blocks from the town's 18-hole public golf course, and a few blocks from the town center (about a 15 minute walk or a ten minute bike ride)--where a variety of restaurants, coffee houses, live theatre, and shops are located.

Please contact me (e-mail will get a quicker response) if you have any questions about the property. Thank you for viewing our site and hope to see you at the beach!

At the beach with Tobey (the greatest chocolate lab in the world).

Kurt Hyde purchased this house in 2008

We bought here because we were looking for a place to stay when visiting my family in Miami, to get away from the cold mid-Atlantic winters, and as a possible future retirement home. A friend had owned a place in Lake Worth for several years and kept telling me how great it was and affordable...and near the beach (the biggest selling point)! It turned out to be a lot of work but, now that the renovations are done, it is a great place for us to unwind and get away from our hectic, regular lives and not have to sleep on friends' and families' couches in overbuilt and traffic-clogged Miami.

The house was originally a bland, white, ranch house with colonial features and lots of beige inside! Yuck. There was no landscapting to speak of. We've updated it inside and out since we bought it in January of 2008--painted both inside and outside, installed new kitchen and central air, tiled kitchen and bath, installed new hurricane shutters in front. We also removed the water-sucking grass/weed lawn and replaced it with xeriscaped landscaping: native, drought resistant local plants, trees, and tropical palms. The garden/yard is still a bit of a work in progress but, it's getting there!

The house and area are very convenient for getting around--whether you prefer walking, biking, or driving. By auto: Lake Worth town center (5 minutes); City Place Shopping Center (15 minutes); WPB Airport (10 minutes); Lake Worth Beach/Pier (5-8 minutes). Parking is usually plentiful and rarely a hassle in most places in Palm Beach County.

Public transportation (bus and rail) is easily accesible from our home--the Lake Worth Tri-Rail station is about a 10 minute drive from our house and you can catch the Palm Tran bus either from nearby Federal Hwy (a five minute walk) or Dixie Hwy (a 15 minute walk)--it will take you to most points North and South that you might need to go.

It is very quiet where our house is located in the Parrot Cove neighborhood of Lake Worth. If you are a serious reader, then this is the place for you!--you will have uninterrupted quiet in the sunroom or in the back patio to lose yourself in a novel or other book. The neighbors are friendly and always come around when we are down there to chat and say hello. We keep the windows open at night in the cooler months to catch the breezes and you can hear train wistles in the distance at night (although not too loud or frequent to keep you awake!). The beach area is great and the water is beautiful; although South Florida is relatively flat, it makes for a huge sky that is a deep blue.

I am a long-distance runner and there is no shortage of great running--as well as bicycling--routes (especially along the bay) throughout the area--let me know ahead of time if you are coming to stay and i will mark out some rad routes.

If you are a runner, you'll love the run from the house, to the intracoastal bridge, and then over to the beach. You can also bike the same route. On the Palm Beach island side of the intracoastal, there is a bike/run path the runs along the water. There is also another public golf course on the Palm Beach island side of the intracoastal about a 1.5 miles from the house--the course is oceanside and very scenic. No reason not to stay active and in shape while you are here...or do nothing at all!

Lots of tropical birds that we would never see up north visit the property--parrots, ibis, carribean hummingbirds--as well as all kinds of butterflies (cassius blue, monarchs, and gulf fritillary). If you are our guest, please feel free to leave us feedback on what we can improve upon and feel free (if inclined) to pull any weeds you see.

We hope you enjoy your stay. Please recycle and be mindful of the enviroment while a guest in our home.

Right at Home

My friend and I decided on a girl's getaway (from this year's New England winter). Wow!! We were so pleased when we walked into Kurt's home (our home away from home). It was spotless, the beds were comfy, and we had everything we needed for a perfect week in sunny Fl (including a washer and dryer)! The neighborhood is safe and we walked everywhere. About a mile from the house is the quaint town center with it's outdoor cafes, little shops and a super friendly atmosphere. The beach is just a bit farther but walking over the Lake Worth bridge is beautiful! The beach also has small shops, places to eat and a beautiful Olympic sized swimming pool. We went between the beach and the pool. Once you pay the $5 (for the pool) you can go back and forth all day. Then we'd return to our little house and use the great backyard barbeque and sit around the umbrella table with a cocktail. Thank you Kurt for a perfect stay! We will definitely be back!!

A month in Lake Worth

The cottage was comfortable in every way! We especially appreciated the sun room, the beautiful floors, and the patio with the grill. We loved the Key West feeling! And we liked walking or biking to downtown Lake Worth for dinner, a facial, haircut or to our favorite French gift shop. We would definitely recommend this cottage.

Amazing Place

This place is amazing. Every detail made us feel like we were in our own home but better. The house was just the right size for our family of 4 and super comfortable. Every detail was taken care of from the kitchen to the bathroom to great magazines and wireless. We were able to relax. It was great have a place that felt like home but a resort cabana at the same time. The neighborhood is great and access was easy to all major roads. We will be booking this house next time. Thanks.

my home away from home

I have now stayed here twice and would stay here again. The place is very nice, I feel even nicer than the pics, very clean, comfortable and nice neighborhood. Every day I either walk or bike to the beach and at night either cook at the house or less than 5 minute drive to the downtown area where there are plenty of good restaurants. My sister now lives in the area which is how I ended up here. I had been coming to Fl for years to visit my father and stayed further south which I never really loved. Now that I stay here, I love it. If you prefer low key, staying at a house and close to beach, you will like this place.

Great Find!

This wonderful, clean, cottage-style home is located in a safe, quiet, historic neighborhood which is perfect for biking and walking. Pictures capture exactly how the home has been updated to create a casual yet attractive space to relax. The fenced back yard is beautifully landscaped and provides total privacy. The location is perfect—close to beautiful Lake Worth Beach, excellent restaurants, unique shops and golf courses. West Palm Beach is just a short drive away, providing more wonderful shopping, dining and night life. Check out the Saturday Farmer’s Market.

The owners of this home aim to please and go the extra mile to ensure that you are comfortable. We would highly recommend this to friends and family and anyone who is seeking a getaway in a quiet spot with a diversity of activities close by. If you stay here, you’ll be glad you did!
