About Kathleen Holmes
Kathleen is a visual artist and writer; Lou is a professional theatre director and producer. We love Florida living, particularly dear, sweet, funky Lake Worth. We also love good food, good wine, good friends, and good dogs!! We feel blessed to live in such a great area and enjoy sharing it with travelers from around the world.
Kathleen Holmes purchased this Cottage in 1992
Why Kathleen Holmes chose South Palm Park Neighborhood Association
We have lived in Lake Worth for over 20 years, and this was our first home here. Live Oak Cottage was my artist studio when we lived here, so has a special history and ambience. We have renovated it into a comfortable funky/elegant home where you, too, can relax and feel creative.
What makes this Cottage unique
This property is at the end of a dead end street, so it is very secluded and oh so quiet! There is tropical greenery everywhere you look. The 14 ' window in the living room looks out into a stand of bamboo - just gorgeous.

A beautiful convenient hideaway.
This was my second stay at Live Oak Cottage. I spent the month of March
in this lovely house with its southern charm setting. Kathleen & Lou greeted me upon my arrival and departure, and are only a phone call away or a few block's walk if any issues should arise (of which I had none). The
furnishings are abudant with her artistic taste. The shared pool is a definite luxury right out your back door that can be enjoyed day and night.
The cookies and fruit that are there when you arrive along with a personalized welcome sign in the kitchen just go to show their extra hospitality. Mary D.
Thank you , Mary - you are the best!!!! We look forward to seeing you again next year, as always! xxxooo K & L
Charming Guest House
My husband and I stayed in this beautiful guest house while we were visiting friends in the area. We found it to be very relaxing, private, and accommodating. Not only was it equipped with functional supplies but the entire place was beautifully decorated with an eclectic mix of furnishings. The owner is an artist and we especially enjoyed her artwork which was displayed throughout the cottage. It was very clean and comfortable and provided lots of space to entertain friends. The private pool was a bonus which we were lucky enough to have to ourselves for our entire visit. It is located in a safe neighborhood and close to the beaches, restaurants, and shopping. We would love to stay again if we return to the area. Thank you so much, Kathleen, for a wonderful experience.
What I imagined I wanted it to be… Only better!
This is a glorious intimate getaway cottage at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac street nestled in an idyllic neighborhood of an old South Florida little town. Our host is an artist and the entire cottage is Art-filled and beautifully unique. The property is filled with live oaks, palms, and exotic bamboo, a garden paradise. We were so warmly welcomed, with every question and detail addressed, and even Tates cookies and clementines on our arrival. Just perfect.
A Magical Paradise for Relaxing!!!
This beautifully restored artists studio is just amazing! This was our second time staying here and it is even better than we remembered; the gorgeous tropical foliage everywhere, the huge comfortable master bedroom, the cute and complete kitchen, and the incredible bamboo garden outside the large living room window. It is obvious that Kathleen put the same sort of creative energy into creating this space as she used in all the art she used to make here. We love this neighborhood for walking, and always enjoy a glass of wine by the beautifully lit pool at night. This is a charming piece of old Florida, so if that's your style, this is your place! Kathleen is always on call for help, too. Look no further, seriously!
Thank's so much, Kew and Laurence. It's always such a pleasure seeing you again and catching up - please hurry back!!!
This is a wonderful place to stay!
This is the perfect cozy cottage with all the comforts of home and very cute. It’s large enough to entertain family and still have a separate living space. Great fenced in back yard with plenty of trees and a nice pool. Perfect quiet place to get away. Kathleen is very receptive to any need you have. This is our second stay at this location. We will be back!
The Live Oak Cottage is the perfect little escape in a quiet tropical paradise
My new favorite place... I love the Live Oak Cottage! It was so perfect for my husband and I on our wedding weekend. Lou and Kathleen were always available for any questions we had and gave us recommendations on everything we were interested in. I cannot wait to go back again!
Thank you so much, Lauren and Nick!!! We loved having you as our guests and, as an old happily married couple, we were honored to help make your wedding weekend a positive experience. We hope to see you again for many anniversaries to come! xxxooo
