My wife and I both enjoyed our month stay at the carriage veery much .

  • 5 of 5

The carriage house was small but very comfortable. The house was supplied with all quality amenities and everything that you could possibly need was there. The beach, grocery store, regulation golf course, post office and many other things were either in walking distance or very close by. I liked the fact that there was two car driveway right next to the house. It was a very nice place to stay and very nice honest people to do business with.

Comfy carriage house!

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed staying in this comfortable, quiet, clean and well stocked haven. Conveniently located to shops and restaurants as well as a short drive to the beach. The fenced garden area was a relaxing hideaway for me. Convenient laundry and even bikes to use. Looking forward to staying again!

The Carriage House was lovely, clean, well equipped, and in the perfect location for us. We have family very close by and this worked well for us. Will likely reserve this again for our annual visits to see family.

Comfortable accomodation

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in the house for 2 weeks and it's perfect for a couple. The house has everything you need, including access to a washer and dryer, private parking, beach chairs, beach towels, and parasols. The bed is very comfortable and sheets and towels are good quality. Keep in mind that the house is old, and the bathroom and kitchen have not been recently updated but are clean and in good working order. You do have to share the back yard with the people renting the other house on the property, however each house has it's own BBQ and outdoor table and chairs and is fairly private. The area is quiet and is convenient for shopping, and close to a beautiful beach. We would stay here again.

Gorgeous place very central to Lake Worth

  • 5 of 5

We booked this place over the Christmas/New Year period. What a lovely property.

This is an annex to the main house with a large shared outside area. I cannot emphasise how happy we were with this beautiful little cottage and its location. The owners, Roger and Taka, we met between Christmas and New Year and they were wonderful - nothing was too much trouble - so friendly. They live and work in Germany and their family manage the place when they aren't here - we only had to call on them once and they were brilliant.

The house is well appointed - with air con and heat as well (it dropped cool in Florida during the latter part of our stay so we were particularly grateful for this).

We had small children visiting at times and the enclosed area is great for small children - allowing them to run around safely.

The cottage was spotless when we arrived and well stocked with many things you take for granted at home. It is only about a 5 minute walk from the centre of Lake Worth or the Publix Supermarket. Only about 20 minute walk (or very short uber ride) to the beach also. There is a large double bedroom and in the living room a sofa which folds into another bed, so four could sleep here very easily. Immaculately clean kitchen and bathroom with laundry facilities in the out house just outside the back door.

It is very quiet - off the main road and a nice sheltered back garden - with an area where the sun worshipers can top their tans up, but plenty of shelter for those of us who like it warm but aren't that bothered by intense sun.

There are bicycles available for you to use - which we did and enjoyed.

Cleanliness, location and overall value for money - you really can't do any better anywhere in Lake Worth. Wonderful place which I am sure we will visit again.

If there are only 2, 3, or 4 of you and you want a very reasonably priced location close to the centre of wonderful Lake Worth that is clean, modern and well appointed, this is the place. Cannot emphasise how much we enjoyed staying here. We would have no hesitation in re-booking this place again.

Owner's Response: Hi Wayne - thanks for the nice words. It was great to meet you and the family - sorry the bad weather up north stranded you all for a few extra days.... but I'm glad we were able to accommodate you until you rebooked. We hope to see you back in Lake Worth (or Germany) in the near future. Have a great 2018! Roger and Taka
