About this listing
Beautiful room with water view, in gated community. 20 min west of the beach, shops, City Place, clubs, bars, restaurants. Free guest parking. Perfect get away.
This is a lovely space. It gets plenty of sun in the mornings, and you can watch spectacular sunrises. Take a chair outside and have breakfast there.
The bed is a twin size daybed with a real mattress.
You will have access to dining room, bathroom with shower and hot water, living room with books, TV, cable. Also, access to Hi-speed Wi-Fi Internet. This is a villa, therefore there are no stairs.
You can go for walks and enjoy the spectacular view of the lakes. Access to condo pool and gym (as my guest). All I ask is please be mature as you move about the space in the community, using the pool, gym, walking paths, etc.
Be respectful of the birds that visit the lake and the surroundings. And yes, you'll want to take tons of pictures. Make sure to bring your sandals and favorite walking shoes.
This is a personal get away spot. It is quite private and quiet. If you're here to party, this is not the space you're looking for.
This is a great place to get away from the city craziness, from the rat-race and re-energize. If you enjoy being near nature and the water, bring a great book or work on your next piece of writing, or other creative endeavor. This will be the spot for inspiration.
If you're a working professional, this is ideal for you, to start and end your day.
At this household, we each do our own thing. We're all completely independent of each other, therefore, once you get your house key, and we go over the general layout of the land, you can come and go on your own.
My mom, who recently retired and travels often, also has a private room in the house, all the way in the front. You may see her at times, or you may not, depending on her schedule.
Interaction with Guests
I am often in and out of the house, running errands, out on meetings, or at the beach. You will have free access once you get your guest keys.
I have set up maps, a book of guidelines for the house, the area and the city and menus to help you remain as independent as possible during your stay here. There is a lot to do and see in these parts of Florida, therefore I can only hope you will maximize your time here to enjoy the lovely environment.
We may see each other, or not, depending on our schedules. However, I am available, either in person or over the phone or text, to answer any questions or assist you with any information.
This is a quiet, pleasant, gated community, with many retirees. It has a club house, tennis courts, gym and pool. It has private entrance and all guests need to be registered, with government ID or passport.
As with most locations in Florida, make sure to have a car. It's the most optimal form of transportation. That's why we offer a free guest parking spot. The West Palm Beach airport (PBI) is fifteen minutes east from the community, by car.
Aside from that, there is taxi service in West Palm Beach, which often comes to pick up and drop off people in the community. Average price between the airport and the community is $25, or if you take the taxi shuttle from the airport, the average charge is $15 for the first person, and about half for each additional person. Uber is available in the area.
Other Things to Note
Some of our first guests have mentioned breakfast in their reviews. They are referring to our introductory promotion, which ran thru the end of 2013, when we offered full breakfast for the first guests who booked.
Even though that promotion ended, we normally have coffee, tea, water, and fruit available to all our guests, to start their day and not leave the house with an empty stomach. :)
If you need any clarification, don't hesitate to email me.
We expect our guests to be mature in behavior. Please no loud noises. This is a quiet retirement community, perfect spot to get away from it all, not a party spot. It is an hour north of Miami, half hour north of Fort Lauderdale, 20 minutes from the nearest beach. No smoking please. No children under 16. No pets allowed.
Lounge/bar area in between the dining room and living room. You can use the bar to prepare your drinks. Bar amenities available. BYOB.
