Jean's Garden - A Tropical Haven

Bedrooms 2
Space 1,600 sq ft
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

A charming cottage with outdoor living in verdant gardens, front and back.

Jean's Garden is just that - a tropical garden environment with a cozy, charming 2 bedroom (1 king and 1 queen) cottage nestled in-between. Flowering plants, fragrant plants, and butterflies surround the front and back outdoor living areas. An open kitchen makes relaxing and entertaining easy. There is Wifi throughout, with central heat and AC, PLUS a charging outlet for electric cars. The TV room hosts a double pull out bed for those overflow guests or grandkids. Three full baths prevent traffic jams, and the third bath also contains a washer and dryer. The backyard is fenced for our pet guests. Lakeside Drive, behind the house, is practically a park - wide and traffic mild, it is very popular with walkers, runners, bikers, stroller, and the ever present happy-being-walked dogs.

About Kathleen Holmes

Kathleen is a visual artist and writer; Lou is a professional theatre director and producer. We love Florida living, particularly dear, sweet, funky Lake Worth. We also love good food, good wine, good friends, and good dogs!! We feel blessed to live in such a great area and enjoy sharing it with travelers from around the world.

Kathleen Holmes purchased this house in 2015

Why Kathleen Holmes chose Lake Worth

This neighborhood is in such great demand with our guests (it is so user friendly and so close to everything) that we couldn't pass up the opportunity to add another property to our vacation rental options right here. We live a block away, which makes it easy for us to meet our guests and help with their needs, should any arise.

What makes this house unique

This little cottage is my dream size - not too big and not too little. The front and back outdoor patios almost double the living areas, and the gardens create the perfect relaxed vacation ambience.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have stayed in several of Kathleen's homes when we come to visit our grandchildren. They are all beautiful, clean, and so comfortable! We love the neighborhood for walking. Jean's Garden is adorable and maybe our favorite so far!

Perfect vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Jeans Garden was a wonderful vacation home. It was comfortable, beautifully decorated, and located in a quiet neighborhood, great for walking and biking. The owners Kathleen and Lou were responsive to anything we needed. We stayed for 6 weeks and only wish that it could have been longer.

We will definitely be returning!

Unique, interesting, and oh so comfortable!!!

  • 5 of 5

Jean's Garden is literally that - a lush tropical garden with a perfectly charming little house nestled in the middle. Clean, completely comfortable, 2 bedrooms, 3 baths, spacious kitchen with everything you need. Family and work bring us to this area several times of year, and every time we stay at one of Kathleen's properties, we think it can't get any better - until we stay at the next one! We love Lake Worth and this neighborhood in particular - quiet, safe, and everyone is so friendly. With any luck you will be able to stay here - unless we have booked it first!!!

Heavenly! Two nice bedrooms, each w nice baths and a third “ beach bathroom w/ shower! Beautiful gardens, living room & separate darling TV room. Kathleen is always the perfect hostess! I’ve stayed at 5 of her properties (becz I know everything will be clean, comfy & perfect) and this might be my new favorite!😍

Everything from booking to check-out was perfect and seamless. Kathleen was charming and attentive. The property was clean and well appointed in a quaint, peaceful setting that was close to shops, restaurants, the beach, parks and bars. We didn't want to leave and cannot wait to return!

cozy little cottage surrounded by gardens

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay at Jean's Garden. Kathleen was always around the area if we needed anything. We stayed there for four months and enjoyed it. I would recommend it to anyone visiting the area short or long term.

A True Home Away from Home!

  • 5 of 5

The house is impeccable and cozy! What you see in the pics is what you get. We slept so well in the comfy beds. House is in a very quiet and safe neighborhood. A little park by the water is within walking distance. Great for kids! Downtown is 5 mins away and very artsy! Great eateries and very international for a small town! The hosts thought of every detail to make our stay exceptional! Even had a welcome note on a chalkboard waiting for us and complimentary chocolate chip cookies! Yummy! Thank you Kathleen! You make everyone who stays at your house look forward to coming back! Arrivederci😊

Lake Worth

Jean's Garden is a cozy quiet retreat, in a quiet neighborhood, situated halfway (1.5 miles) between Lake Worth and Lantana beaches. This neighborhood is totally walkable, bike-able, and dog friendly! There is a waterfront park a block away in one direction, and another 5 blocks in the other. We are 9 blocks from downtown Lake Worth, with all it's shops and cafe's - a delightfully charming walkable little town! Jean's has a large covered back porch surrounded by lush garden, perfect for al fresco dining or just chilling with a book.
