My husband Scott and I have owned & managed a landscape company in Palm Beach County for 35 years. Our volunteer work involves helping disaster survivors after catastrophic events. In 1999 we formed a non-profit organization called The Eagles Wings Foundation which does this work around the world. Our children are grown now & launching their own careers. We are animal lovers & welcome your 4-legged family members (no giraffes please).

Carol Lewis purchased this house in 2009

I LOVE Lake Worth but my home is in nearby West Palm Beach where Scott & I maintain a plant nursery on our homesite. Lake Worth is my go-to place whenever I have free time. I feel like I'm on vacation when I meet up with friends at Lake Worth's sidewalk cafes or theaters. I love that dogs are welcome at the sidewalk restaurants.

As a part-time realtor, I see a lot of houses, but when I walked into Eden House I knew I had found something special. A former owner was an agoraphobic artist who stayed home & painted the floors, walls & ceilings with fabulous faux paintings. He also was a great interior decorator and most of the antique furnishings came with the house, which is magical. You feel like you're stepping back into a quieter time as soon as you go through the picket fence gate and enter the secluded front courtyard.

WOW!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at Eden House was fantastic. I could not believe that this was a rental property -- we felt like we were staying with our quirky/eccentric aunt. The house was cozy and comfortable -- the sheets are fabulous -- really. There was endless fun in exploring all of the decor and knick knacks and looking for the skeleton. Carol couldn't have been more accommodating and responsive. The location was a perfect base for our "visit as many people as possible in the shortest time" mission. Having lived in West Palm for years I thought I "knew it all" -- but clearly had missed out on how much fun Lake Worth has become. I would have totally missed out on all the great shops and restaurants on "The Avenues" had we not been right there! And, it was our great luck to discover that Blue Front had relocated to right up the street -- the smells of smokey bbq that crept through the night air as we relaxed by the pool could not be ignored! I looked like a champ for finding us such a great place to spend our long weekend in FL. Guaranteed if I ever come back to the Palm Beaches I will be staying at Eden House!!!

THE GARDEN OF "EDEN"!

THE GARDEN OF "EDEN"!
  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay at "Eden House". It was wonderful! Carol called to make sure everything was in order soon after we got there. It would have been a pleasure for us to meet. The house was immaculate! An absolute beautiful home. Lots of room. LOVE the painted carpet! Hunting for the skeleton closet (and we found it) was fun and we are all adults! :) We slept very well on the beds. The pool was wonderful, the beach was amazing! We love the "HomeAway" homes because it IS like being home. You have every bit of privacy here. Fenced in and tucked away. :) Neighbors are close, but we heard nothing from no one. We didn't visit any restaurants because we enjoy cooking. It was really nice cooking out by the pool. Our only disappointment was in the grill. With it being a charcoal grill versus gas, it wouldn't get hot enough to sear our steaks correctly. Other than that, this home was perfect. Lots to do! (Putt-Putt, Bowling, Beaches, Shopping,etc.) I HIGHLY recommend this home for anyone's visit to West Palm Beach, Florida and we would definitely stay again! Thank you Carol and God bless you!

VERY NICE STAY!

  • 5 of 5
The house was great. The furniture, the décor, everything we could possibly need in the kitchen and by the pool. I loved how the bedrooms were all separated. We had a ton of fun looking for the secret closet – and we are all adults ? It was close to everything and we enjoyed Lake Worth downtown as well as the beach.

BEAUTIFUL PROPERTY - RELAXING VACATION

  • 5 of 5
We had a lovely stay at this unusual property, excellent facilities which included everything that we could imagine.
Beautiful furnishings and antiques, this home is full of surprises with all it's nooks and crannies.

Pool area is stunning and very relaxing.

Great location, close to everything and we recommend the Okeechobee Steak house, for the best steaks ever..

Thank you Carol for your hospitality and we will be back soon.

NICE, AFFORDABLE STAY AND IT MET OUR NEEDS.

  • 4 of 5
Overall, it was nice. This was our first time renting a house so we have limited experience of what we can compare our experience too. Our goal of vacation was to eat and have the kids swim in the pool all day in an affordable place.

What we really liked: Secluded pool. The house had plenty of room for our 8 (4 adults and 4 kids). The TV room had plenty of room for us to hang out together in. The master suite is huge and allowed our young kids plenty of room to stay with us w/o us tripping over each other. Pool is a salt water pool, so great! Carol was very responsive and that was very helpful. We spent all day outside and never heard the neighbors!

What we didn't like. The beds were not comfortable for us, too soft, but everyone has their preferences. The refrigerator was having issues, Carol was very responsive and we appreciated it, but refrigerator never worked perfectly for us. The washer & dryer smelled a bit musty, but all stackables need to be open to air out. Once, we opened it and let it air out it got better. Our first visit to Lake Worth area we realized its not super nice, but the secluded nature of the backyard makes you forget about the neighborhood. The local beach is not very nice, lots of trash on the beach. I suggest finding a better beach.

Overall, it was nice. It's not amazing, but I think it is priced fairly. Everyone had a good time.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to provide a review. I invested in tempurpedic mattress toppers for all the beds because I love them, but if they are too soft for you, they can easily be removed. The refrigerator turns itself off if the door has been left ajar for 30 min. or longer and when it is eventually closed, it takes a while to get to its proper temp. again. Correction about the pool: it is not a salt water pool.I suggest giving Lake Worth beach another try. Cleanup is great now that construction of the new facilities is completed and it is getting lots of rave reviews, as is the fun, artsy town of Lake Worth which is becoming a mecca for musicians, artists and world travelers who like to get off the beaten path. I am constantly being asked by visitors if I have a long-term rental because people would like to relocate here. Check out "Lake Worth Every Minute," or "Art Dazzle Lake Worth," a blog with loads of local photos by a former United Press International photographer.
