Set in a historic home, this is a very quiet residence, surrounded by live oaks and tropical foliage. Everywhere you look there is green! Live Oak Cottage shares the garden and pool with Live Oak House, HA#3828715. The downstairs sports a kitchen/ dining area, living room, and powder room/laundry. The cozy kitchen has every amenity except a large oven. The living room has 17' ceilings and a 14' window looks out into a bamboo grove. The upstairs has a full bath (no tub) and a spacious bedroom with king bed, sitting area, and desk. There are two daybeds in the living room, but one could be placed upstairs in the bedroom for a child. This is a new listing for us; please see our other HA listing #934400 for our guest reviews!
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 cottage in 1992
We have lived in Lake Worth for over 20 years, and this was our first home here. Live Oak Cottage was my artist studio when we lived here, so has a special history and ambience. We have renovated it into a comfortable funky/elegant home where you, too, can relax and feel creative.
This property is at the end of a dead end street, so it is very secluded and oh so quiet! There is tropical greenery everywhere you look. The 14 ' window in the living room looks out into a stand of bamboo - just gorgeous.
We are a family of 4 that loved our stay! Great cosy house, lovely garden and pool, grate communication with oner.
We recommend a stay here!
Whenever I'm in Palm Beach County, this verdant, secluded slice of heaven is my go-to place to stay! Beautifully appointed, fully stocked, and with the kindest, most helpful, and gracious hosts I could ever ask for.
I loved staying here so much, I did not want to leave! The cottage is peaceful, private, and enchanting, set amidst beautiful plantings, including hibiscus flowers and the majestic century-plus-old live oak directly outside the French windows. Our gracious, kind hostess, Kathleen, immediately welcomed me -- and the pups! -- as we arrived at the cottage, ensuring we had everything we needed, and making us feel at home. A magical retreat!
We stayed at both Live Oak House and Live Oak Cottage with another family while our kids attended a soccer tournament. The set up was perfect: lots of space for everyone, a grill for cookouts at night, and a big gorgeous pool for cooling off from the July heat! The house was beautifully and artistically decorated and very comfortable. There was a great assortment of games and puzzles for our younger kids, too. We will definitely be back!
Live Oak Cottage was just what I was looking for. I came to the area for work and wanted a quiet, relaxing place to return to after a hectic day. The decor is artistic and charming and the garden beautiful. Being able to swim off my stress after work was heaven. This was my first stay, but it definitely won’t be my last!
We had to make an unplanned visit to check on my ailing mother. Thankfully, we found Live Oak Cottage! Everything about it was soothing and relaxing, just what we needed. Kathleen met us to show us around and answer our questions, and made bicycles available to us so we could get around. The lush garden, the amazing quiet, the beautiful pool, the super comfortable bed, and all the thoughtful little touches (especially the cookies!) made our visit more like a luxurious vacation than we would have thought possible under the circumstances. This will definitely be our place in Lake Worth from now on!!!
Lake Worth is a charming old resort town on the Intracoastal Waterway and one bridge away from the Atlantic Ocean beach. Downtown Lake Worth is filled with small locally owned bars, restaurants with indoor and outdoor dining, antique and other shops, live music, outdoor festivals, and a municipal golf course. There is a Starbucks. Ours is a quiet pedestrian and bike friendly neighborhood with constant tropical breezes.
