About Lesley and Michael Bielby

We are a family of 5 who first came to this area because our daughter competed at WEF for several years. This is now our vacation home and ultimately where we will retire.

Lesley and Michael Bielby purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Lesley and Michael Bielby chose Southland Park

We fell in love with WPB and with this house which looked quite different when we bought it! We absolutely love the area - there is so much more to the Palm Beaches than you would imagine - beautiful hidden parks, gardens and restaurants and there is a lot to do. And of course the beaches are amazing!

What makes this cottage unique

We bought this house because of its history, soaring ceilings, charm and its spectacular location - it really doesn't get much better than this. This cottage was rumored to have been owned by the gardener of what is now Donald Trump's home. It is the pretty Bermuda cottage on a street full of large and beautiful waterfront properties. Upscale, safe and beautiful historic neighborhood which couldn't be more convenient for town and Palm Beach.

Wonderful historic home

  • 5 of 5

This spacious and beautifully decorated home is everything it claims to be and more. The kitchen is well stocked ,with basic supples as well. There are lots of bedding, emergency supplies, lovely front and back yards and pool. The owners are helpful and responsive. The location is also great.

There was a fairly strong odor of mould in some of the rooms which may have been related to the very cool and rainy weather at the time . We were ok with it but others might be bothered.

We would stay here again!

Owner's Response: Hi Julie - yes the strange weather may have created the unusual temporary smell that we checked on and noticed in the living room. Looks like there was some mildew by the front door which caused this, and which is all taken care of now! So glad you had a nice time!

Conveniently-located cottage in a great neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We rented this cottage for a family Spring Break trip, and really enjoyed staying in it. It's in a very nice neighborhood, with a pleasant small park nearby. The house is a block from Lake Worth, so runs and walks along the promenade that follows Flagler are literally across the street. We walked to breakfast at Howley's Restaurant almost every day (when we weren't getting Cuban coffees and guava/cheese pastries at Havana Restaurant). The house is convenient to Palm Beach, Clematis Street, and City Place.

The house itself is quite comfortable. We had 6 adults, and everyone was comfortable. The common areas are well-appointed and pleasant. The owners were very responsive to us, and made us feel welcome. I recommend this property.

Great location, spacious house.

  • 4 of 5

Nice spacious property with good kitchen. Pool is small but works to just cool off. Trains and planes may wake you up. Master bed is comfortable.

The location is great to go anywhere in the greater West Palm Beach area. You can walk to Clamatis street if you like bars and nightlife. Best restaurant in walking distance is "Kitchen" on Belvedere Rd.

Beautiful Cottage and Great Landlords!

  • 5 of 5

My Husband and two other couples were traveling to Palm Beach for our friends wedding. We were so excited to stay in this beautiful cottage in such a great location. Upon arrival we had a little trouble with the AC, but the landlords did not hesitate to call in a repair service ASAP. They were very accommodating and checked in on the status of the fix via text and by calling throughout the weekend. We really appreciate their efforts while staying in their cozy home. I would highly recommend this place to anyone!

Christmas in West Palm Beach

  • 4 of 5

We spent 8 days at this property over the Christmas holidays and enjoyed it very much. This is an interesting older home, with lots of character. It is in a good location, a great place to walk, not far from lots of shopping, art museums etc. and a short drive to the beach. The property is well cared for and maintained.

West Palm Beach is a beautiful part of Florida close to the beaches of Palm Beach and other beaches including Delray Beach. Lots of sightseeing, fishing, fantastic shopping, antiquing and plenty of activities for children - younger and older alike, including a safari park, water park etc.
