Overview

Lake Worth House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom 2 bath plus Loft Bedroom and Office, sleeps up to 8!

PLEASE make sure you read the entire description before deciding to book the Cottage:

The Lake Worth Cottage is a 'Key West Style' home close to downtown Lake Worth nightlife and beach. Privacy-Fenced back yard contains a swimming pool, jacuzzi, barbecue grill and poolside gazebo with dining table! I believe the cottage is the perfect for a great family summer vacation!

Please note that the cottage is a 75-year old 1,300sq ft stand-alone home with wood floors and doors, crystal doorknobs, skeleton keys, etc. It is NOT a new house and it is NOT in a new neighborhood. While I have put a lot of work into updating everything, it is and will always be an old house, which is not for everyone. Please make sure you are OK with a house with 'charm' before booking. If you would like a newly constructed house in a golf course community, there are plenty available in other areas of the Palm Beaches.

The cottage is stocked with everything you should need for your beach vacation. Close to the beach-- lots of towels and blankets on hand for the beach or the pool. A closet stocked with lots of games will keep the whole family occupied in case it rains (or as we call it: liquid sunshine)!

The kitchen has been updated with extra-large stainless steel appliances (stove, refrigerator, dishwasher) and stocked with everything you will need for dinner or dinner party -- huge butcher block counter top where the whole family can eat together. Outdoor dining at a large teak table, or at the smaller table in the 'poolside cabana!'

57in television with DirecTV in the living room, High Speed Wireless Internet anywhere in the house or yard -- take your laptop out by the pool!

Closet washer and dryer will keep up with all of the dirty clothes..

** Please note that I am sometimes unable to answer emails or telephone calls during the weekends from April to June and also from May 30- June 9, 2015 -- I am currently in training for AIDS/Lifecycle, a 545-mile bicycle ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles which raises money for AIDS/HIV Services.

Cottage residents will use the emergency contact number during this time, but I will be unable to book reservations from my bicycle. I apologize for the inconvenience, but assure you it is for a GREAT cause.

About John

I grew up and spent most of my life in the Palm Beaches, but now divide my time between Florida and California. My canine kids and I were very happy when we lived in Lake Worth full-time and have a lot of good memories there... I love to share the very tropical, laid back style of Lake Worth with visitors from all over the globe!

John purchased this house in 1996

Why John chose Lake Worth

Come and enjoy my little oasis. It is the perfect place to unwind (pool, spa, suntanning, etc) while still staying in touch with the world (close to everything, high-speed internet, etc).

Cozy

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was very cozy and was a home away from home! We loved our stay. Lots of things to do right in the area for both kids and adults. We couldn't ask anything more from John, he was so helpful and made this the easiest vacation we ever went on.

Perfect winter getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Florida and it did not disappoint! John was so helpful and accommodating, and his spacious cottage was the perfect winter retreat. The proximity to the beach, to other fun beach cities, and to great restaurants was just what we were looking for.

The cottage itself has everything you could possibly need, the kitchen was great for cooking, the beds were comfortable, the huge flat screen TV with cable in the living room was an added bonus! But our favorite part was relaxing with breakfast in the screened in patio, and taking advantage of the pool, hammock, and hot tub in the backyard! It's so nice to have your choice of going to the beach or relaxing in your own private backyard. We walked or drove down to Lake Avenue several times during our week-long stay to take advantage of the nightlife and restaurants there...highly recommended.

Overall, we couldn't have been happier with our choice of this rental property. Feels like you are own house while you're there! Thanks John!!!

Owner's Response: Hi Robert. Thanks so much for writing the review and explaining the pros and cons of the cottage.

We had a most enjoyable vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the cottage, patio porch, of course the pool! Area was so convent for groceries, antiquing, restaurants, and the beach! Everything you could need was furnished. John is a very hands on landlord. He wants his guests to enjoy their time and does anything to make that happen! Will surely return ?

Honest, Kind and Understanding Owner

  • 5 of 5

I felt the need to write a review, even though I never stayed here. During the investigation/research for a place to stay, I was interested in this house. John was more than helpful and informative. He answered all questions that I had. Ultimately, circumstances didn't allow me to stay here. However, I'm sure the place is wonderful and John would do whatever it takes to make your stay a good one. All owners should be as attentive as he seems.

Cute cottage, perfect for a laid back vacation.

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had an awesome spring break when we stayed at this cute charming cottage. The cottage was located in a pretty laid back area and was about a 10 minutes drive to West Palm Beach, which was perfect for us. We were able to go to the beach almost everyday and when we came back we liked to relax in the hot tub. Whenever we had a problem or a question John was always very easy to get a hold of, and when we arrived at the cottage there was a binder with all kinds of information about the area, which was really helpful. It was a short walk to the downtown area which is very cute. We ate at Dave's Last Resort the last day of our trip and the food was really good!

There were 10 of us that stayed in the house and it was plenty big enough for all of us. The house had everything we needed. Staying at this Lake Worth cottage helped make this spring break trip memorable for all of my friends and I. Hopefully we can come back again next year!
