About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, 6 Sleeps

This home is a relaxing getaway of a two-time Olympian and his family, but it's too perfect not to share when the family is away. The home is very well maintained with terrazzo flooring and classic mid-century modern feel. There is ample shade when you need it and ample sun when you want it, plus a pool to dip into and cool off. Just a 10 minute bike ride from the ocean, 4 blocks away from the golf course, an easy stroll into downtown Lake Worth and very short drive to Palm Beach Island and West Palm Beach. Only a 10 minute drive from Palm Beach International Airport and 40 minutes from Fort Lauderdale. This is the perfect vacation relaxation getaway for a group of friends or families.

About Kate Carcelen

We are a family of three who are relatively new to the East Coast. My husband is from Lima, Peru and I am from Seattle. We spend our time between the hustle & bustle of NYC and the warmth and relaxing vibe of Florida. We have a daughter who is 10 and a dog named Sunny. My husband (Roberto) and I met online 15 years ago - our love of family, the outdoors and constantly looking for new experiences is an integral part of our family fiber. When Roberto arrived in Seattle I introduced him to cross-country skiing. Having been an elite surfer in Peru he quickly picked it up and a few years later, with much hard work and sacrifice, became the first Peruvian to participate in the Winter Olympics (Vancouver 2010). He repeated this accomplishment again in Sochi in 2014. Now we spend our time supporting the Roberto Carcelen Foundation ( and working remotely for our companies. We embrace a lifestyle of fun, friends, family and experiences.

Kate Carcelen purchased this house in 2016

Why Kate Carcelen chose Lake Worth

We love this property because of it's classic mid-century modern feel and how relaxed you feel once you walk in the door. It is the perfect place to wind-down, read a book, cool off in the pool, bar-b-que, spend time with friends and simply enjoy the Florida sunshine. The neighborhood is quiet but close to activity when you want it which is perfect for us - and we are sure it will be perfect for you as well!

Great property for families and couples!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at Kate and Roberto’s beautiful bungalow! It has really nice furniture, a well-equipped kitchen, a great pool in the backyard, and easy access to everything that West Palm Beach/Lake Worth has to offer. We will definitely come back again!!:)

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Kate's property in Lake Worth

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean, in a very nice neighborhood, had all of the proper amenities including a very nice heated pool. It was close to public beaches, restaurants and shopping. We were also close to Boynton Beach, West Palm Beach and DelRay Beach. We would not hesitate to rebook this property.

peaceful, stylish oasis

  • 5 of 5

Very much enjoyed my week-long stay. The house is well-appointed and the furnishings, which are mostly mid-century or similar style, are very comfortable. The real highlight is the pool and large surrounding private patio. That and the open plan living area call out for entertaining! Everything was well-maintained and the hosts have clearly thought carefully about the comfort of their guests. Highly recommended!

Very nice house in a cozy neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for 2 weeks in January. House was very clean. The pool was nice but the weather was a little to chilly to use it much. We did use the pool furniture to sunbath.Wonderful linens, pillows and comforters on the beds. The fridge, dishwasher, washer and dryer all worked great.

It has a good central location for Palm Beach and Fort Lauderdale. These houses were built in the 50s but it has had many updates and has been well maintained.

Great for our family!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our family stay in Palm Beach County. It was a great central location for visiting friends and family in Delray Beach and Jupiter. While we were there, there were high rip current warnings, so having the pool saved the day for our kids (8 and 11). The Lake Worth beachfront was a short drive away and we spent a day playing in the surf and looking for shells. We were also minutes from the Palm Beach Zoo and the South Florida Science Center and Aquarium, which were a great way to spend a cooler day.

The house itself was comfortable and had everything we needed. Kate was always easy to reach if we had any questions. It has a well-supplied kitchen and ample room for the four of us. The outdoor space is beautiful and private. We would definitely stay here again!

House is situated in a quiet community full of beach bungalows and mid-century houses. The community golf course is just a walk away and situated on the intracoastal. The ocean beaches are a short bike ride from the house as is the downtown area of Lake Worth, which is full of fun shops and restaurants. There is plenty to do from beach-combing, fishing, surfing, cycling or simply lounging around and soaking up the sun by the pool in the private backyard.
