Overview

West Palm Beach House Rental Photos and Description

3 Beds/3.5 Baths, Heated Pool & Cabana Bath with Outdoor Hot/Cold Shower

This wonderful ,tropical escape is located close to everything you could possibly want.....beaches, shopping, fine dining, downtown, airport, Kravis Center for the Performing Arts, City Place, Worth Avenue, churches, synagogues, Deep Sea Fishing, museums, multiple golf courses, The Breakers, and it's luxurious spa, and golf course, among other things. It is a beautiful home which far surpasses a typical vacation rental and is evident upon entry. Recently quoted by a local Realtor as 'a wonderful experience'.

Property Maintenance & Staff: There is a pool man who comes on Tuesdays and Fridays, for service and his fees are covered in the rental amount.

There is a landscaper team who comes on Monday or Tuesday and they maintain the lawn and shrubs. Their fees are also covered in the rental.

Utilities not covered are AT&T, City of WPB, and FPL, with the exception of phone/long distance charges and are prorated, as per length of your stay, based on the monthly charge for the bill received. This is to ensure that everybody stays as 'green-minded' and energy conscious as possible.

Kitchen Rules: Everything accessible is available for your use, with the excption of my really fine china. I am a gourmet cook and have almost anything you could need or want to produce wonderful meals and entertain in style. There is also an incredible library of cookbooks for your use, located in the library. I have a 42' Sub-Zero refrigerator/freezer, Miele steam oven, Thermador double 30' convection ovens, dishwasher, wine cooler, microwave, 2 disposals, wet bar, prep sink, instant hot water, reverse osmosis system for pure drinking water and just about any minor household appliance you could wish for. It truly has all of the bells and whistles.

Local Amenities: Nearby, you will find many things to choose from. For sports enthusiasts, you have deep sea fishing, scuba diving, snorkeling, swimming, tennis, golf, horseback riding, sky-diving, parasailing, sailing, boat rentals, kayaking, canoeing, water skiing, croquet, bowling, motor sports, skeet, trap and sporting clays, etc., to choose from, among other things.

There are theatres, concerts, jazz clubs, dance clubs, street fairs, sunset festivals, water taxi and other things always going on in the area.

With Worth Avenue and City Place, this area is a shopper's delight.

Walking to the end of the street will reveal a beautiful walk along the intracoastal waterway, where you can look across the water at Donald Trumps beautiful estate, Mar-A-Lago. This a popular spot for the walkers, joggers, bikers and rollerbladers. In the other direction and north a couple of blocks is a skate park/BMX park for the kids!

About Constance (Connie) H. McIntosh

I have totally renovated this home, from the bottom, up. I acted as my own architect/designer/contractor, doubling the size of the home, adding the pool, have done all of the decorating and, as a result, it has become my profession. Holding a real estate license, I enjoy making beautiful homes. I also enjoy playing golf, shooting sporting clays, riding my Vespa 250 along the ocean, practicing yoga, cooking scrumptious meals, and so many other things.

I am a licensed realtor, and if there is anything that I can do to make your search easier, please do not hesitate to contact me. I've been in the Palm Beach area for over 30 years, and also love the time I spend in the mountains, when vacationing there. I know the area very well and can guide you in any direction you wish to pursue.

Constance (Connie) H. McIntosh purchased this house in 1998

Why Constance (Connie) H. McIntosh chose West Palm Beach

Location, location, location.............It's on the best street in the neighborhood, in the Estate section of the best neighborhood in all of West Palm Beach. It's often referred to as an extension of Palm Beach, where many Palm Beachers reside.

What makes this house unique

I have had a lot of beautiful painting done in the home, which makes it unique from anything else you'll find. I love that I converted the orchid house, into a tranquil yoga/meditation pavilion, in the front Zen garden. Wind chimes surround the home, making it extremely calming and relaxing. It's my slice of heaven and my escape from the rest of the world.

I have recently upgraded the security system to include some smart home features. There is also a whole house generator, making sure that power is never lost.

Superlative!

  • 5 of 5

As much as I appreciated the photos of this beautiful house, the property itself was even better. I cannot think of one negative thing to say about the place: It is beautifully decorated, IMMACULATELY clean, and impressively equipped. The master bedroom linens were to die for, and the bed was the single most comfortable I have ever slept in. The pool was clean and surrounded by well tended, lush plantings - particularly beautiful at night. The home is located in an attractive, quiet neighborhood that is no more than 5-10 minutes from virtually anything you could want-- food, drink, shopping, beach, highway. It is a great refuge, a wonderful place to hide and relax- or to entertain, and the house accommodates either very well. Connie is attuned to every possible inclination or whim, and she is entirely responsive to every query; she really ought to be running a 5 star resort. This is the next best thing- or perhaps one better. Cannot recommend it more highly to any interested parties. My son and i absolutely loved it.

Truly Nirvana!

  • 5 of 5

This is a spectacular home with every amenity. From the minute we arrived we felt totally at ease. Connie is great, so very accommodating. You couldn't ask for a more gracious host. It was one of those stays that we hated to see come to an end. Totally relaxing. The house just welcomes you and begs you not to leave. When you are stretched out on a chaise by the pool, palm trees rustling in warm wafting breezes, you'll believe you are on a secluded tropical island. The interior decor is beautiful; open, spacious & designer worthy. The kitchen is fully equipped, fit for a culinary professional.Abigail, the housekeeper is a gem. House is privatey situated on a magnificent block with a clear view to the Intracoastal. Can't wait to return, feels like home!
