Tropical, Two BR, Dog-Friendly Cottage in Downtown Lake Worth

Bedrooms 2
Space 660 sq ft
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 - 5 nights


About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

This charming two bedroom cottage in the heart of Lake Worth is a wonderful mix of tropical serenity, downtown convenience, and beachside peacefulness.

Built in 1924, this historic home combines classic finishes -- like a claw-foot bath tub and hardwood floors -- with modern conveniences -- like blanket WiFi and remote-controlled ceiling fans in most rooms.

Just want to hang around the house? Sleep late and then enjoy coffee on the deck, overlooking the private, dog-friendly yard bursting with foliage (papaya, mango, and nectarine trees, as well as six different varieties of palm trees), within earshot of the waterfall. Make a snack in the recently updated kitchen, or grill some fresh fish on the gas grill out back. Kick off your flip-flops and watch cable television on the 36-inch high-def tv. Check email using the house's complimentary WiFi. Have a hot shower either under the leaves in the private outdoor shower, or in the claw-foot tub in the recently renovated bathroom.

Feel like going out? Within two blocks, you'll find bars, restaurants, shopping, and nightlife. Attire ranges from suit-and-tie to swimsuits-and-beach-shoes; it all depends on you! You can also easily walk to Lake Worth's brand new grocery store, a bank, a drugstore, the post office, a movie theater, a playhouse, a gym, and a bus stop, all of which are within three blocks of the house. If you're feeling active, Lake Worth's Municipal Golf Course, public boat launch, and brand new Kayak Launch (opening spring 2012) are all about 3/4 mile away.

Feel like exploring? Borrow the beach cruisers and pedal along the scenic bike route, past numerous historic homes adjacent to the Intracoastal Waterway. Keep your eyes open for manatees chomping on sea grass!

Ready to hit the beach? Borrow the house's beach gear (umbrella, chairs, towels, cooler, noodles), and walk, bike, or drive 1.5 miles to Lake Worth's public beach, which also has a recently-renovated fishing pier (that rents fishing gear).

Want to see some other towns? Lake Worth is located in the middle of Palm Beach County. In just a short drive, you can easily reach West Palm Beach, Delray Beach, Boca Raton, and Jupiter. Roger Dean Stadium, which hosts Spring Training each year for both the Florida Marlins and the St Louis Cardinals, is just 21 miles north.

If you're flying to Lake Worth, the closest commercial airports are Palm Beach International (7.5 miles) and Fort Lauderdale International (43 miles). (If you're flying your own plane, Lantana's Palm Beach County Park Airport is 4 miles away.) If you're driving to Lake Worth, this house is 1.5 miles off I-95.

Leuk Florida-huisje met geweldige tuin

  • 4 of 5

Het huisje was prima, alles aanwezig. Goede bedden en een mooie tuin. Prima airco en televisie.

Het was op zich schoon, dust under the beds and furniture. De tuinman (zou 2 x per week komen) is niet geweest.

Goede communicatie met eigenaar. Al met al een heerlijke tijd in het huisje doorgebracht.

I love this little house and the tropical paradise back yard. Perfection location and great host. Better than a home away from home.

Restfull time away!

  • 5 of 5

Well cared for older cottage with a shady backyard that our Golden Doodle loved exploring. Near Publics and the ever improving Lake Worth historic area. We made it to the Lake Worth Pier, just across the intercoastal waterway, to enjoy the beach and two of our favorite restaurants- Mulligans and Bennies on the Beach. We enjoyed this quite little hideaway very much!

Great cottage. Loved our stay.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I loved our stay at the cottage. The place was cozy and comfortable. The backyard was great for sitting out to enjoy morning coffee or an evening drink. Very convenient walk of 2 or 3 blocks to town for restaurants, bars and shops. Willy was great to work with and checked in with us via email a couple times to ensure everything was good with us. Would definitely recommend.

Another fantastic month!

  • 5 of 5

Our second year at this perfect cottage. The interior has been tastefully updated, the backyard is perfect for our lab mix and the location is within walking distance of everything Lake Worth has to offer. Great restaurants, great music, parks, the arts and culture are all available locally in a town described to us as "Key West 40 years ago!" . The owner is incredible responsive and everything works as it's supposed to. A family wedding may impact our ability to come back next year but we're already planning on 2019!
