Lake Worth house description

Summer heat is on and what better way to cool off than to hang out on the beautiful beaches of Southern Florida? Come down to the Palm Beaches and the quaint town of Lake Worth for the warm tropical breezes, excellent dining, great outdoor sports (rarely gets below 60 here, even in January!), and way awesome beach. Unlike other warm-weather winter locales in the Carribean and Latin America, Florida and the Palm Beaches is an absolute bargain! We fill up pretty fast this time of year but, there are still a few weeks left if you are interested. Hope to see you all in the sun!

Our home is a cozy Key West style cottage in a quiet residential area. It is a single family home that has been recently tastefully updated with a new, fully stocked kitchen and is comfortably furnished with a queen bed and two twin beds. A wonderful getaway for someone looking for a quiet, relaxing, low-key beach getaway. The house is located in the quaint town of Lake Worth--'Where the Sub-Tropics Begin!': known for its fine restaurants, antique shops, nightlife, fishing, excellent surfing, and ocean beach. You'll enjoy free Wi-Fi, central air-conditioning, cable (flat screen) television and DVD library when staying at our home! In addition, while staying here you'll have access to your own private laundry and a lovely outdoor patio, hammock and barbecue. Our garden includes hibiscus, frangipani, lychee, night-blooming jasmine, cocoplum, and passionflower vine. There is even a private outdoor shower for rinsing off after a day at the beach or if you just want to clean up under the stars.

The Town of Lake Worth is on the Florida Intracoastal waterway, just minutes from City Place (West Palm Beach's premier shopping, entertainment and nightlife venue), the West Palm Beach International Airport, shopping, and the equestrian centers of nearby Wellington and world-renown PGA course. The house itself is 1 mile from the ocean beach, three blocks from the town's 18-hole public golf course, and a few blocks from the town center (about a 15 minute walk or a ten minute bike ride)--where a variety of restaurants, coffee houses, live theatre, and shops are located.

Please contact me (e-mail will get a quicker response) if you have any questions about the property. Thank you for viewing our site and hope to see you at the beach!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2008

                      About the owner: At the beach with Tobey (the greatest chocolate lab in the world).

                      Why the Owner Chose Lake Worth:
                      We bought here because we were looking for a place to stay when visiting my family in Miami, to get away from the cold mid-Atlantic winters, and as a possible future retirement home. A friend had owned a place in Lake Worth for several years and kept telling me how great it was and affordable...and near the beach (the biggest selling point)! It turned out to be a lot of work but, now that the renovations are done, it is a great place for us to unwind and get away from our hectic, regular lives and not have to sleep on friends' and families' couches in overbuilt and traffic-clogged Miami. The house was originally a bland, white, ranch house with colonial features and lots of beige inside! Yuck. There was no landscapting to speak of. We've updated it inside and out since we bought it in January of 2008--painted both inside and outside, installed new kitchen and central air, tiled kitchen and bath, installed new hurricane shutters in front. We also removed the water-sucking grass/weed lawn and replaced it with xeriscaped landscaping: native, drought resistant local plants, trees, and tropical palms. The garden/yard is still a bit of a work in progress but, it's getting there! The house and area are very convenient for getting around--whether you prefer walking, biking, or driving. By auto: Lake Worth town center (5 minutes); City Place Shopping Center (15 minutes); WPB Airport (10 minutes); Lake Worth Beach/Pier (5-8 minutes). Parking is usually plentiful and rarely a hassle in most places in Palm Beach County. Public transportation (bus and rail) is easily accesible from our home--the Lake Worth Tri-Rail station is about a 10 minute drive from our house and you can catch the Palm Tran bus either from nearby Federal Hwy (a five minute walk) or Dixie Hwy (a 15 minute walk)--it will take you to most points North and South that you might need to go.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      It is very quiet where our house is located in the Parrot Cove neighborhood of Lake Worth. If you are a serious reader, then this is the place for you!--you will have uninterrupted quiet in the sunroom or in the back patio to lose yourself in a novel or other book. The neighbors are friendly and always come around when we are down there to chat and say hello. We keep the windows open at night in the cooler months to catch the breezes and you can hear train wistles in the distance at night (although not too loud or frequent to keep you awake!). The beach area is great and the water is beautiful; although South Florida is relatively flat, it makes for a huge sky that is a deep blue. I am a long-distance runner and there is no shortage of great running--as well as bicycling--routes (especially along the bay) throughout the area--let me know ahead of time if you are coming to stay and i will mark out some rad routes. If you are a runner, you'll love the run from the house, to the intracoastal bridge, and then over to the beach. You can also bike the same route. On the Palm Beach island side of the intracoastal, there is a bike/run path the runs along the water. There is also another public golf course on the Palm Beach island side of the intracoastal about a 1.5 miles from the house--the course is oceanside and very scenic. No reason not to stay active and in shape while you are here...or do nothing at all! Lots of tropical birds that we would never see up north visit the property--parrots, ibis, carribean hummingbirds--as well as all kinds of butterflies (cassius blue, monarchs, and gulf fritillary). If you are our guest, please feel free to leave us feedback on what we can improve upon and feel free (if inclined) to pull any weeds you see. We hope you enjoy your stay. Please recycle and be mindful of the enviroment while a guest in our home.
