About the Property
4 bedroom, 3 bathroom, sleeps 10
Vintage Spanish revival pool house steps to downtown and beach:
Once a B&B, the historic Banana Inn is now a welcoming vacation rental house. 4 bed, 3 bath, 1920s two story Spanish revival house features period details, wood floors, Mexican tile, arched windows and cocquina fireplace plus modern conveniences like two zone central air, HD satellite TV (premium channels) and wifi. Relax on the back patio around the private Mediterranean style inground heated pool, or chill out on the deck under the retractable awning. Two blocks to arty Lake Worth downtown with galleries, theater, bars, restaurants and vintage stores. Four blocks to intracoastal, boat launch and seafront public golf course. Walk over the bridge to the beach and fishing pier, farmers market (in season) and beachfront dining. Easy 15 minute drive to Palm Beach, West Palm Beach, Delray Beach and equestrian events at Wellington. Large, fully fenced yard. Well behaved dogs welcome. No smoking.
YOU WILL NOT ENJOY THIS HOUSE: If you want a quiet suburban lifestyle further from town, or a gated community feel; you want everything match-matchy; you'd rather have a new condo over a 1920s cottage-style house.

About the owner: Originally from London, I now live in New Jersey and work in Manhattan, so the Banana Inn is a wonderful escape from the winter chill — although I love cooling off in the pool in the summer months too.
Why the Owner Chose Mango Groves (Lake Worth, FL, USA):
It's officially in the tropics! I also love the classic architecture of the area and of this house which, being on a double lot, also offers much more outside space than most houses in the area. Why come to Florida just to have a balcony to sit on? Just 15 minutes walk/5 minutes drive to a wonderful beach with shops and dining - plus you can also walk to a lively downtown, so no designated driver necessary. It's 15 minutes/$30 cab fare from West Palm airport, so you don't even need to rent a car. If you do, you are an easy drive to some great beaches including the wonderful dog beach at Jupiter. Or, you may want to just enjoy the pool and backyard with palm trees with a homemade frozen concoction - a perfect tropical vacation.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house dates from the 1920s, although a building has been on the site since 1900, making it one of the oldest in the area. It sports all the classic Mediterranean architecture, with arches, a coquina fireplace and tiles. The house has a welcoming vibe to it - once you have been in there a while, you will feel right at home, perhaps because it also has enough room for everyone to have their own space. My favorite part is the outside areas - the deck to gather and dine on, and the pool and patio for sun and fun.
