Property description

PLEASE make sure you read the entire description before deciding to book the Cottage:

The Lake Worth Cottage is a 'Key West Style' home close to downtown Lake Worth nightlife and beach. Privacy-Fenced back yard contains a swimming pool, jacuzzi, barbecue grill and poolside gazebo with dining table! I believe the cottage is the perfect for a great family summer vacation!

Please note that the cottage is a 75-year old 1,300sq ft stand-alone home with wood floors and doors, crystal doorknobs, skeleton keys, etc. It is NOT a new house and it is NOT in a new neighborhood. While I have put a lot of work into updating everything, it is and will always be an old house, which is not for everyone. Please make sure you are OK with a house with 'charm' before booking. If you would like a newly constructed house in a golf course community, there are plenty available in other areas of the Palm Beaches.

The cottage is stocked with everything you should need for your beach vacation. Close to the beach-- lots of towels and blankets on hand for the beach or the pool. A closet stocked with lots of games will keep the whole family occupied in case it rains (or as we call it: liquid sunshine)!

The kitchen has been updated with extra-large stainless steel appliances (stove, refrigerator, dishwasher) and stocked with everything you will need for dinner or dinner party -- huge butcher block counter top where the whole family can eat together. Outdoor dining at a large teak table, or at the smaller table in the 'poolside cabana!'

57in television with DirecTV in the living room, High Speed Wireless Internet anywhere in the house or yard -- take your laptop out by the pool!

Closet washer and dryer will keep up with all of the dirty clothes..


** Please note that I am sometimes unable to answer emails or telephone calls during the weekends from April to June and also from May 30- June 9, 2015 -- I am currently in training for AIDS/Lifecycle, a 545-mile bicycle ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles which raises money for AIDS/HIV Services.

Cottage residents will use the emergency contact number during this time, but I will be unable to book reservations from my bicycle. I apologize for the inconvenience, but assure you it is for a GREAT cause.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1996

About the owner: I grew up and spent most of my life in the Palm Beaches, but now divide my time between Florida and California. My canine kids and I were very happy when we lived in Lake Worth full-time and have a lot of good memories there... I love to share the very tropical, laid back style of Lake Worth with visitors from all over the globe!

Why the Owner Chose Lake Worth:
Come and enjoy my little oasis. It is the perfect place to unwind (pool, spa, suntanning, etc) while still staying in touch with the world (close to everything, high-speed internet, etc).
