About Anne Fairfax

I am a licensed architect, grew up in Honolulu and graduated from the University of Virginia School of Architecture. I currently live in Lake Worth, on the property. I have had a 25 year career as an architect, and when I discovered Lake Worth I knew that its small village scale, with sandy alleyways, charming cottages and intact downtown would be the perfect place for me to create a vacation retreat, for myself, and for visitors. When you come and stay, I hope you appreciate Lake Worth as much as I do. America has very few charming small towns left, and in Florida, they are rare as hen’s teeth. Lake Worth is a treasure that its citizens have preserved through designation of a series of historic districts. While still a transitional community, with pockets of poverty and attendant issues, it is fast becoming "the" destination for those who are seeking "old Florida" and a place which has a real village feeling where one can walk to the library, the grocery store, the post office, city hall, catch a movie at the independent movie house or see a live play and have a meal in a restaurant. The weather is warm and tropical year-round, so it makes an ideal getaway for anyone seeking a respite from the cold.

Anne Fairfax purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Anne Fairfax chose Lake Worth

J Street Lodge is located in Lake Worth, Florida , Palm Beach's hip little sister, chock full of charming mom & pop shops, restaurants, antique and consignment stores and minutes away from the more publicized Palm Beach. Enlightened residents have blocked mass commercial high-rise development in favor of preserving Florida's last remaining walkable human-scaled village. While Palm Beach features private mega-mansions, Lake Worth keeps a lower profile with hundreds of original 1920's cottages. Palm Beach has the black tie charity affairs, Lake Worth has a jazz club, theater, independent movie house, cafes and art openings.

You have many options when staying at J Street Lodge when it comes to enjoying the South Florida weather. The ocean, beach and fishing pier are minutes away as well as a public Olympic-size pool. Right over the bridge, play golf and dine at Palm Beach Par 3 recently redesigned by Raymond Floyd or eat at Bennie's on the Beach overlooking the surf at Lake Worth Casino (the name is a holdover from the 1920's gambling heyday).

You are a 3 minute walk away from the town's main street, Lake Avenue which features a live playhouse, an independent movie house, many restaurants, bars and clubs. Enjoy consignment and antique shopping and the weekly Saturday Lake Worth Farmer's market!

But for relaxation, you do not need to go anywhere. Your lodge is in a private compound, quiet and tucked away from any traffic noise. You will share the communal garden with the other 2 apartments. Owned and restored by award-winning architect, Anne Fairfax, she bought the house in 2013 and with great love renovated it so she can share it with others. She has a property in Palm Beach but would rather live in Lake Worth. She says, " I think of Lake Worth as what Brooklyn is to NYC. Hip, creative, a bit rough at the edges."

Come alone or bring friends. Each of three lodges are approximately the same size, with the same amenities but with different color schemes.

What makes this apartment unique

Among the unique benefits of this historic property is that it has been completely renovated, but retains the charm of its original Mediterranean Revival style. The property's walkable proximity to vibrant downtown Lake Worth makes this an ideal getaway for those who want to ditch the car and get some sunshine while enjoying all the amenities of a small town.

Lovely, tasteful apartment in a European style courtyard

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying here and plan to return next year. Apartment is just right for a couple, cozy, clean, everything we needed was available. We appreciated the high quality towels and even bathrobes. The owner is an architect, which is evident by the good taste in the simple décor. We loved the chickens wandering in the courtyard! Location was convenient for us, a short drive to the beach and a walk or drive to grocery store.

Quiet and centrally located to everything you need

  • 5 of 5

Very pleased with our stay. Our family was there for 9 nights and it was very comfortable and restful. The apartment was centrally located to everything that we needed. It was quiet and the host was very helpful and friendly. Had the bottom apartment so heard the people upstairs when then walked around but it was not unbearable. You hear the occasional train pass during the day and at night but that too was not unbearable. Planning our trip for next year and would definitely contact Ann or Leslie again. Looking for a house rental that they may have. Place very clean and kitchen well equipped. Had a great time. Thanks for a wonderful vacation.

Valerie Hall and her family.

Artsy and cute

  • 5 of 5

I stayed for a week while I was rehabilitating a knee surgery. This complex is only 3 blocks from a very unique and fun downtown Lake Worth. Also close to the beaches and golfing as well. The owner has done a great job renovating and fixing up three apartments for short term rental. I was able to bring my two dogs with me.

Whether you are into active sports, shopping, strolling or leisurely bicycle riding, funky Lake Worth provides a plethora of daytime, and night time activities for the visitor. For evening fun, there is live theater, a jazz club, and an independent movie theater - all within walking distance from the property - all adjacent to many casual or upmarket restaurants. Bicycles are provided by your host, and Lake Worth is perfect (flat!) for tooling around the neighborhood, visiting the grocery store, going to the waterfront park or just wandering through the funky Key-West style historic neighborhoods. If you are a swimmer, you are in luck, as Lake Worth boasts a year-round Olympic-sized public swimming pool, right at the public beach (1.5 miles away, or a 10 minute bike ride). Very close by is a Par 3 golf course and club, with oceanside dining. There is something for everyone - if you have a surfer in the family, the pier offers moderate-sized waves, and you can rent fishing gear at the pier and while away the hours fishing. There are many mom and pop shops on the main streets, Lake Avenue & Lucerne Avenue (.3 miles away, 6 minute walk) and small cafes for ice cream, coffee or wine bars. The possibilities are endless and your host will be happy to help you navigate the options!
