Ideal for a romantic getaway for two, or a single person traveling for business or pleasure, buried in tropical foliage, the Loft on California is cozy 400 square-foot 2nd story walk up bird's nest atop of a meticulously restored 1926 bungalow style private home located in the Frazier's Addition garden district in historic downtown Stuart, Florida.
The roofline apartment is packed with upgraded features including king size bed, large bathroom with sparkling custom artisan tiled shower stall, floor to ceiling stained glass windows, newly remodeled full kitchen with stone counter tops, wood floors, sitting area with large flat screen TV, cable and WiFi.
The living area is nearly doubled by the secluded adjacent outdoor deck/lounge area surrounded by tropical foliage and overhead trellis.
Unit access is via private exterior staircase to a programmable keypad entry door. You can program your own private code so there is no fussing with lost keys.
If cooking in the spotless new fully equipped kitchen is not on your agenda, historic downtown Stuart, situated on the waterfront of the St. Lucie River, is a five minute walk to multiple restaurants and bars covering all budgets from waterfront fine dining and seafood, to casual Thai/sushi, sports bar and Italian food. Dress it up or dress it down with shorts and flip flops...anything goes in the relaxed and casual south Florida environment.
The centerpiece of downtown Stuart is the historic Lyric Theater performing arts center offering great seasonal live music and theatrical performances. Downtown also offers great shopping for clothes, fine art, crafts, salons, yoga and massage therapy.
Pristine beaches are a 10 minute drive or a 20 minute bike ride.
Come visit us, history loves company!
Kim and Bruce are a very warm, welcoming and laid back couple who live onsite. They are there if you need them, but otherwise are out of sight if you don't. All of the stained glass in the residence was designed and by Kim. Now a retired glass artist, Kim is a professional pastry chef who enjoys creating edible art. Bruce, who has worked in the aerospace industry for many years, is a seasoned water sportsman who enjoys paddle boarding, surfing, fishing and scuba diving. Don't let him convince you to try out his Indo Board balance trainer, you may end up on your rear end with a bruised ego...nothing that an ice cold beer won't heal.
Bruce Wall purchased this apartment in 1989
Whether is it is a lovable puss-in-boots or a 1926 old Florida bungalow, Kim and Bruce are always looking for a good rescue project. In a sad state of neglect and disrepair, in 1989 they fell in love with and purchased this charming bungalow style home and over the years have meticulously and personally restored this home to it's original charm, yet have elevated it to a new level by tastefully integrating modern features and upgrades.
Old Stuart and the Loft on California turn the clock back to a 1960's Key West back-street vibe with great privacy and immense charm, without the hustle bustle of present day Key West. With shopping, dining, recreational and leisure amenities within walking distance or a short drive, all you need for a great stay with us is within a lazy arm's reach.
Beautiful! The apartment is perfect, grounds beautiful , and outdoor deck space private and spacious.
The owners have made a great little hideaway here, with everything easily walkable in downtown Historic Stuart from the property if you feel like being lazy - restaurants, bars, the water, shops and even a music venue. The place is quaint and perfectly equipped, with a great attention to detail and decor. We loved the kind welcome, which is typical of the owners, who are lovely. The outside deck was great for lazing around and the garden outside the property is really nicely done. Given a chance we even like to come back and stay in the Tiny House at the back of the garden. Plus if you're into turtles, ask if you can feed the resident Scooter :)
This is a great place to stay in Stuart. It is very private and artistically decorated. The owners have added many details to make the loft very special!
We loved this rental and will definitely book it again if we return to downtown Stuart, FL. The space is cozy and efficient. We especially enjoyed hearing live music every night from the private deck.
Apt. was beautiful, tiny and awesome at the same time. They way they maximized space was clever and inspirational. Both my fiend and I wanted to stay. Indefinitely! Loved the colors and the lovely light show as the sun shone through the pink and blue stained glass. The outdoor space was also spectacular and the owners were friendly and helpful all the way. Not at all intrusive, just available to assist if needed. Fabulous find.
Ok so this place is small, however, it was probably the best rental i have ever stayed in. It was incredibly clean and cozy. Top notch kitchen area and bathroom/shower. There is an outdoor patio area where you could eat breakfast or have a night cap. It had absolutley everything my girlfriend and I needed. This is the perfect rental for a couple looking for somewhere to stay in the Stuart area. Walking distance to a nice brew pub and terra fermata which has a good night scene and live music. Bruce was very hospitable and responded in a timely manner for any questions that we had regarding the rental. Would definetly rent again.
