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 (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 umbrella 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 15%.

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.

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.

Charming Artsy Cottage

  • 4 of 5
Ann's Wee House is a well-done renovation/modernization of an Old-Florida home in a upward bound community. It has all the essential modern conveniences tastefully executed and just a short walk to the main drag of Lake Worth. While small (pack light) it has good use of space that's augmented with cathedral ceilings in the living room and bedroom and is light and open feeling. It's full of bright colorful art that make it and you feel good. All rooms have ceiling fans although the AC/Heat provide the comfort should you choose to close up. The front garden provides a classy touch of privacy while the back patio is very private and a fine place to read, relax or entertain and enjoy the outdoors.

Ann has made a real effort in compiling a notebook about the house and the area that includes menus from the restaurants that abound, the various art shops and consignment shops. It is immensely helpful - required reading. The very friendly next-door neighbor is available should you need assistance of any kind. The only reason for not rating it 5-star is the slat bed from IKEA. Ann said that it's on her list for upgrade.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Owner's Response: The bed is simply firmer than some may prefer; I added a 3 inch memory foam topper so I think the feel strikes a nice balance between firm underneath but then soft and supportive on top.

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.
