Overview

About the property

4Bdrm/4bth, 15 guests max, Roof deck/hottub 180 deg intracoastal views Splurge!

Wow...You will fall in love with this home with amazing views that will take your breath away. This home was the American Red Cross Designer Showcase Home in 2013. Imagine relaxing and enjoying the panoramic Intracoastal views from the home, deck (Jacuzzi on the deck!) areas on the third floor and roof top. The Widow's Walk is truly perfect place to entertain or escape the day. Property has state of the art features and elevator to second and third story. Your backyard area features a lap pool too. You will enjoy the fabulous location just one house off Flagler Drive which makes it ideal to walk, jog or bike. Also you are minutes to downtown West Palm Beach. The deal just became even better.

This newly constructed 4/5 bedroom, 4 bath home was designed after a historic Key West home - Fogarty's House. A 3rd floor roof top deck and 4th floor crow's nest highlight this amazing vacation getaway. Great for Family Reunions and perfect for South Florida event such as The Honda Classic, Spring Training, West Palm Beach Sunfest, Superbowls, etc. Beautiful sunrises and relaxing sunsets bookend each day and proximity to West Palm Beach, Palm Beach and Lake Worth light up your nights. The second floor has four bedrooms. All bedrooms have balconies to enjoy a view. Two bedrooms face east with spectacular views of the intracoastal waterway. One with a King Size bed and single sofa bed and the other with a queen size bed and queen sleeper sofa. The two west bedrooms have a queen size bed and two twin beds. The third floor contains a study with a queen sleeper sofa which can also be used as an additional bedroom. For those exercise enthusiasts, the house is one directly off Flagler Drive which runs the length of West Palm Beach along the intracoastal waterway. A great place to walk, run or cycle. Palm Beach is accessible about 1 mile north. The house was designed to allow access to the upper floors for those with inability or limited ability to climb stairs. Thus, an elevator was put in as well as a dumb waiter to bring food and drinks to the second, third floor and roof deck area. The back yard contains a 55 foot lap pool which can be heated upon request at additional cost. The house was the 2013 Red Cross Show House ( and is featured in the 2014 Traditional Home Magazine.) Home has changed some of the furniture and style since the Show home) On the property to the west of the house is a cottage which is the home of the owners of the property. They will be onsite to assist you with any needs, care for the pool and supply you with information regarding the area. At times the cottage may also be rented during the rental of the main home from a different person(s). The two parts of the property are separated and private. The kitchen is designed for a cooking paradise with TWO 4 gas burner and TWO gas ovens for family/friend entertaining. The "aquarium" dining room provides a fun area for entertaining.

This spacious home allows for the optimum resort environment for a couple or a large group. Owners have lived in Palm Beach County since 1991 and are familiar with the unique activities. They will be able to offer you the best experience in the area to assure you don't miss the elements that provide the best experience in Palm Beach County.

The house has been a perfect setting for family reunions, friend getaways, golfers, sporting events, convention center participants etc. The ability for everyone to stay in this house and enjoy the many amenities has been very attractive!

About Kevin Kunkel

Susan and I are both health care professionals. Susan is a Nurse Practitioner and I am a professor and practicing Physical Therapist. We built this house after travelling to Key West and seeing "Fogarty's House". We used it as a model and added a roof top deck with a spa and a crow's nest on the fourth floor. We hope everyone will enjoy the views as we have. As my wife is a swimmer, we added a 55 foot long lap pool as well! So get ready to have the vacation of a lifetime and enjoy Palm Beach!

Kevin Kunkel purchased this house in 1994

Why Kevin Kunkel chose Southside

The location adjacent to the intracoastal as its proximity to Palm Beach, West Palm Beach and all South Florida has to offer. So many major events occur in West Palm Beach and South Florida that this house is fantastic with a maximum guests of fifteen.

What makes this house unique

The roof top deck, roof top spa and many seating options for family and friends. Unparalleled views of the intracoastal waterway. Can be used for events such as Wedding brunches, etc but you must inform the owners that you wish to have an event at the house prior to renting.

Roomy, well-maintained, wonderful views and breezes

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent experience with this property. The friendly owner lives next door and responded promptly to our questions. There are lots of different spaces for relaxation, including lovely views from the third and fourth floor rooftops. We enjoyed gorgeous sunsets and soothing breezes. The rooms are ample sized and well cared for, with numerous smart TVs.

Better than the photos! This house has everything for an incredible vacation.

  • 5 of 5

The owners are the most friendly, honest and accommodating people I have ever met. Their house was built with love and an enormous amount of thought. Every bedroom has beautiful views and terraces and the upstairs area with Jacuzzi fire pit and sun deck are not to be missed! I cannot wait to come back to this property next year.

Perfect for our multi-generational, extended family

  • 5 of 5

This is our second visit to Kevin and Susan's property and our stay was, once again, excellent. They added a couple of minor things that we suggested from last year and also some things we didn't know we'd need! (beach gear, endless towels, more kitchen gadgets) My dad used the elevator and was able to join us on all levels. Our girls hosted sleepovers and watched movies altogether in the living room.

We hosted a big dinner on the top decks and finally used the dumb waiter. It was as close to perfect as we could get! Kevin was super accommodating. He was available and checked in with us when we couldn't manage to follow directions (hot tub!). His beach and restaurant recommendations were very helpful. Don't miss Havana's 24 hour take-out window. We are now repeat 10 pm customers! (pork empanadas and tamales are delicious)

My only worry is someone from our team will beat us to the punch renting it for next year!
