Overview

Lake Worth Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

Competitively Priced, Charming Retreat, Close To Absolutely Everything.

If you don't mind small or color or art, you'll love Ann's Wee House. Set inside a mature tropical garden and walled fences, hanging out in the front or back doesn't get more private than this. Yet you're close to the pulse of Lake Worth--four blocks from main street, the best coffee shops, two blocks from a Publix super

market and a 20 minute walk to the beach. Filled with glass and light, the house is a charming 500 sq. ft. Key West-style bungalow in downtown Lake Worth that catches all the breezes.

Three people max. (two adults and one child), small animals considered. One bedroom (double bed), one bath, LR with sofa/futon, DR table with 4 chairs, gas range and oven, fully equipped kitchen, 32' flat screen TV with basic DISH package, DVD/CD players and tuner, WIFI. Rear yard with pergola and chairs and ottoman, table with chairs and charcoal grill for eating. Front deck/porch. All linens provided. Central AC and ceiling fans.

Owner managed means more competitive rates for guests because there are no middlemen. It also means a more hands-on service and quicker responses to your questions. My monthly rates are discounted $300 vizaviz weekly rates.

About Ann von Lossberg

Travel has been a kind of avocation--a healthy obsession--more than 60 countries 'so far' in mostly the developing world. I have written a memoir about my travels, which started when I was 32. My boyfriend and I sold everything we owned and just went, the first trip for 2-1/2 years. I am settling down a bit now and, when I visited Lake Worth for the first time with a friend, I fell in love with the many wee houses there. In the past, I wasn't really a Florida fan. Over time, though, Florida has been more and more culturally rich; many artists who have settled here have brought their talents and businesses. I love Lake Worth and environs because of the art scene. Lake Worth is also a real town and has an unassuming feel to it. It isn't chichi Florida; there are no high rises, chain restaurants or hotels (well, a Starbucks). I love its diversity. The entire area is up and coming and those of us who have purchased on J Street enjoy a pride of ownership. Lake Worth just keeps getting better and I wanted to be a part of that.

Ann von Lossberg purchased this bungalow in 2013

Why Ann von Lossberg chose Lake Worth

My wee house was love at first sight, a Key West bungalow. The way the house sits back from the street, the TOTAL privacy (you can walk around naked and no one will see you), and the fine craftsmanship. A master carpenter who lived next door once owned and renovated both houses. Every contractor who enters my house is smitten because they appreciate the work.

What makes this bungalow unique

You can walk to town, you can walk to the super market, you can walk to restaurants, everything. You can hop on 95, go north or south on Rt. 1, hop on the TriRail and go to Miami. Hard to beat.

Nice stay!

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I stayed a month at the Wee House. It was exactly as pictured and described. One of the cleanest rentals I've stayed in. It is small but was perfect for two. Lovely backyard perfect for reading and relaxing. We opened front and backdoor doors to let a wonderful breeze come through the house. The yard is full of plants and the house sits back from the street making it very private. We had our bikes and biked around town and at various parks. House is close to beach and lots of good restaurants. Only complaints were bed too soft and one of the 2 chairs in the living room not very comfortable for a long stay. But we loved staying here and plan to stay again. Thanks, Ann!

Owner's Response: Thanks Judy. You and Marlene are great guests too. The bed thing is such a toughy; it's impossible to please everyone. The bed is firm, the topper is memory foam, so I'd hoped that would be the right combination for most. "Wee" carries various constraints so furnishings cannot be large or over stuffed. I think most people really like IKEA Poang chairs which I have here. I have just added about 12 new plantings in the front garden, so the entrance is getting more and more lush and beautiful. Ann

The "Wee House" a treasure in Lake Worth Fla.

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I stayed for a month in Lake Worth at the "Wee House" It was a completely enjoyable experience. The house is a completely refurbished antique cottage. It is tastefully and comfortably decorated. The bed was very comfortable and the very private fenced back yard was a gret place to eat and relax in the sun or shade. There was always plenty of parking right in front. A short walk to the Publix super market, a great and inexpensive Gym and my favorite, a short walk to an art cinema with great movies. Lots of art galleries near by plenty of outdoor cafes for a meal or just a cup of coffee along the "Old Florida downtown ave." If you want to experience a taste of "old Florida" don't miss this experience. There is a very nice property manager, always available for questions. We defiantly want to return.

Incredible location for a relaxing getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about my stay was easy. The walk to Publix for groceries is less than five minutes, I biked to the beach every day in 10 minutes, there are nice local restaurants, bars, and independent coffee shops, that are all a short walk or really short cab ride away. I initially planned on having a rental car but after being here for a day I decided on a bike instead and it was perfect. The property seems more secluded and private than it is and it's well equipped. The kitchen uses it's space smartly and I had no trouble making a few meals at home and the dishwasher was a nice plus. The Casino beach (not a casino) nearby has a pool with public access and a really nice sandy beach with places to eat or grab cocktails right on the boardwalk. Communication with the owner was laid back and easy, I can easily recommend this place!

A Little Treasure

  • 5 of 5

Ann's Wee House is perfect in every way. While small; vaulted ceilings and large windows make the house feel like you're in a garden setting. There are doors in every room leading out to little oasis. It is spotless, perfectly private, and yet only a mile from beautiful Lake Worth beach and the charming 'Old Florida' downtown with quaint outdoor cafes, great shops, and galleries. I almost want to keep this all a secret! Thank you Ann for making my vacation stay lovely and relaxing. Leigh in Vermont

Sweet little place

  • 5 of 5

Not far from City Place, Palm Beach, Breakers. The little village of Lake Worth is a charm. The bunglow is tiny but perfect for 2 people. It was spotless, well designed and all that she described in the description. The owner was sure to ask if there was any more she could do to make our stay more enjoyable. Thank You Ann!

Loved the wee house

  • 5 of 5

Loved this little place, you can hardly see it from the street, it's so nice and private. Although small, it has everything you will need. It was also very clean. Our host was kind enough to include a scrap book outlining restaurants, attractions etc. Her book had so many great suggestions, we barely veered from it. This was definitely great value for the money.

An 'evolving' book inside the house sets out many possible activities and places to eat, with an emphasis on art and culture (my personal interest) and consignment shopping. Too many to list here. Towns to the north and south are fun to explore too. West Palm Beach, Palm Beach Gardens, Juno and Jupiter are to the north; Boynton Beach, DelRay Beach, Boca Raton, Ft. Lauderdale and Miami are to the south.
