About Pamela 'PJ' Layng

From Cape Cod, this was our snow bird home, love tropical gardening and this house shows it! Fell in love with the area so much that we moved here full-time and needed a larger home closer to where I now work...Jupiter, where I am VP for the Girl Scouts.

Pamela 'PJ' Layng purchased this house in 2006

Why Pamela 'PJ' Layng chose Lake Worth

It is perfectly olde Fla with new charm and close to EVERYTHING and completely private and quiet!

What makes this house unique

The porch and the BREEZE...just off the water. Lovely!

Oh great bathroom and new kitchen, barely used!

All landscaped for privacy too!

Working water fountain when you enter the front of house...

"Sorry for the Inconvenience"

  • 2 of 5

If you rent this property, expect to hear the above phrase from the owner. A LOT.

The Good? Nice house, large private property & beautiful screened-in veranda.

The Bad? Many items not as advertised: (1) dining room set is not the one pictured; it only seats 4, not the 8-10 advertised; (2) “new appliances in kitchen”—only the stove was new, dishwasher, refrigerator & microwave were old albeit in working order; (3)advertised bottled water & safe were non-existent; (4) advertised beach chairs & cooler were non-existent. Owner told us “you can buy them at CVS”; (5) advertised garage is there but is used by owner for storage so you can’t park your car; (6) “fully equipped kitchen” was the barest of bare bones. Precisely 4 forks, knives and spoons (the house is supposed to accommodate 5 people and “entertain” 8-10) and several pots & pans which were rusted, chipped, filthy and unusable. Period. We ended up having to buy our own basic kitchen items needed during our 3 ½ month stay; (7) no clothes hangers & not even a box of kleenex in the house; (8) loads of laundry in the washer & in the dryer waiting for us on our arrival in Florida (as well as 5 big bags of trash); (9) maintenance issues: constantly running upstairs toilet, slow-running bathroom drains, lawn sprinkler system that sprayed inside the veranda, air conditioning & exterminator service calls, all of which should have been taken care of before the arrival of guests; (10) lawn care was poor; no sign of a gardener for our first month there and the grass was finally cut only because we told the owner that her property looked bad. We saw the gardener only 2 more times in 3 ½ months.

The Ugly? Owner requested to show the house to potential renters; we made sure to be away for the showing and to leave the house clean & in good order. On our return, we found that the owner had “redecorated”---- moving our personal belongings around, putting none of it back where it belonged and leaving windows open and fans & lights on.

In conclusion, there are many positive aspects to this property, just don’t expect everything as advertised; the only real negative was the owner, who seemed totally inexperienced in property rental and lacked a lot of common sense. We had hoped this could be a long term rental in Florida for us in years to come. Instead we were left with the impression that this is a money-making proposition by an owner who really doesn't care about her guests.

Owner's Response: True or False? We have been renting homes for close to 10 years…NEVER A COMPLAINT. Why now is the question we find ourselves asking. In response to “Items not advertised”, we did get a new and improved dining room table, pictures are now available. “Seats only 4”, it is a 7 foot farm table. We have 8 chairs, only 4 seats REMAIN around the table, not sure why renter left this way? This is a personal choice; all can be left around the table. “New appliances kitchen”, stove and dishwasher are brand new, refrigerator and microwave, excellent condition, did not need replacement. Beach chairs and cooler, were not promised, they are now there. “Fully equipped kitchen”-there were 2 sets of utensils, although not matching. We have now put in a new pottery barn set. When we learned 2 good pans were removed by last renter, we immediately replaced them. Hangers were also taken, now replaced. Kleenex is not provided to long-term renters, sorry. This renter came in on New Year’s Day, since it was a holiday, garbage was left in cans outside, it is not picked-up on a holiday. Additional towels and sheets were drying in the dryer, since they had been cleaned that morning and were still damp when the cleaning service left. All sprinklers and AC are maintained regularly, has is the exterminator services in Florida. We are “sorry for the inconvenience”, but this does need to be checked regularly at the house. The slow-running toilet is working perfectly now, plumber reference available. Pertaining to the garden, we wait for the renter to tell us when they are ready for yard service, in attempt to not “inconvenience” them. We did not hear anything from these renters the first month they were there-assumed they wanted it this way. They also never called requesting addtional yard servcie, THIS IS AVAILABLE AS NEEDED. As for “moving personal belongings” when showing the house, we moved a briefcase out of a direct view and a lap-top to protect it. Many people were in the house and we did not know. Fans and lights were put on since they were needed, left on because it was dark. Our policy is to always respond to requests within 24 hours in an attempt to be of service to our guests.
