About Aleksander Alvestad

We are a family with two kids, and we love to travel. We bought a vacation HOME in 2011 because we fell in love in the propety, the neighbohood and the city. There is something with West Palm Beach that other cities does not have. You live on a very quite steet but at the same time you live in the city close to everything. We came to Florida first time in march 2011, first we came to Orlando we went to theme parks for a week, then we rented a car and drove from north to south in order to find our place. When we came to Miami we did not liked the place so much, so on our way back we decide to take a little trip to West Palm Beach because of the movie 'Marley and me' which are based on real story and which were shot in West Palm Beach. When we came there we fell in love in the city, beaches, and the way of life there and decided to buy a vacation home.

Aleksander Alvestad purchased this house in 2011

Why Aleksander Alvestad chose West Palm Beach

West Palm Beach is a very charming city, with history and a special atmosphere which is hard to find in most cities. You will not regret when you come here, its so much to see and do here that you will find out that your vacation is too short. We keep this property for us and visit West Palm as much as possible.

What makes this house unique

The value of what you are getting for your money cant be beaten by any hotel or vacation home in the whole área considering the quality vs price. You need to experience the laid back athmosphere in the property, by the pool or in patio, I also use to have a hammock which I used by the playground under fruit threes, you just lay in the hammock and watch your kids play. Most of the neighborhoods in florida are exactly the same, with the same houses, clubhouses, pools ect. This is what makes home away from HOME so special, its different! Its located in established neighborhood where 99% of the people are locals not tourists or tenants. The neighborhood have a soul, with a local church, one of the best art middleschools in US, park and a lake. Also me (and you) have the best neighbors in the world.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Aleksander our vacation has been wonderful. We have seen more of the east coast then we thought we would. The house is perfect. Comfy and cosy. We love having the pool for our down time to relax. Yes the blender and hair dryer came. I have my own so didn't take them out of the box. Keep in mind, we would like to see about renting here from January 15 To April 15th of 2017. Just a thought. Keep us in mind. Very relaxing vacation. We did the beaches, flea markets, down city place. Got turned around and ended up in Jupiter. Great adventures. Even the lion jungle. All has been great.

Felt like home

  • 5 of 5

Alex was great, very attentive and the house was well stocked with everything we could've needed. I attended a conference in Palm Beach, which was about 15 minutes away and very easy to get to from this house. Thanks so much for allowing us to stay and for your hospitality!

Amazing Property!

  • 4 of 5

My whole family spent 10 days in West Palm Beach. It was our first rental and it was a wonderful experience. The house was very clean and well stocked. The kids enjoyed the pool, outdoor park and also the bedroom with all the toys. It's a very quite neighborhood, close to everything. I would definitely stay there again.

Thanks Alexander!

The house was very convenient to all the places we were interested in going.It was very comfortaable

  • 4 of 5

We arrived on Feb 28, 2017 in the evening. Alex, the owner, was very easy to work with and very available and access was very easy. Any issues that arrived were taken care immediately or within a reasonable time frame.

There was some maintenance that was required to be done while we were there. The person doing the work was very accommodating and tried working around our schedule.

The house has 3 bedrooms. One Master bedroom that had a queen size bed with dresser walk in closet and bath. However the bed did not have a box springs under the mattress, Alex ordered one and had it delivered. Thew second bedroom had a queen size bed with a large closet and shelving for extra storage. the third bedroom was set up for a childs room with a twin bed , no box spring, it also had a large closet and shelving in it. This room had a TV and games for kids. The living room, dining room, kitchen were very spacious and comfortable. There was a workout room with a sleeper sofa located off the kitchen. The Florida room to the pool area was very nice and we enjoyed playing games out there. There was also a very nice area for kids to play.We enjoyed our stay there. It was nice to have a heated salt water pool and it was very enjoyable, however I think it needs some work done on it. It would be helpful if there was a binder containing instructions on use of the controls for TV, internet, alarm for the pool area etc. There is a lot of information on the Home Away app as far as stores, entertainment, restaurants, local places to visit. However, I believe it would be nice to have a binder with addresses and locations of the different beaches, Restaurants, Shopping and other sites that are close to visit. All in all we had a wonderful time and we would want to visit again. I think if you are looking for a place to stay and you have children this is a nice place. I would like to come back again but I would want 3 to 4 bedrooms to accommodate 6 to 7 adults. This was our first experience for Spring Training and having the house for a month and different siblings coming in at different times was great. And we definitely want to do it again next year.

Owner's Response: HI Mary. Thank you for great review!!! I purchased already new vacuum cleaner Miele and i ordered a new bed for kids room. I will resurface the pool this year, its very difficult to do as i need to drain the pool in order to do that and my property is booked all the time. I think and hope i am able to do that this summer. Otherwise thank you for your feedback I took care of most of the issues you mentioned in your review.
