About Neuso Ogawa

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.

Neuso Ogawa purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Neuso Ogawa chose Palm Beach County

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.

Great tiny apartment for 2, close to the beach and downtown in quiet neighborhood.

  • 4 of 5

We loved the ability to walk/ride everywhere from the compact apartment. The courtyard is beautiful and has chickens roosting in the trees at night! It's a quick ride on (provided) bikes over the bridge to the public beach for sun, surfing, and swimming, and an easy walk up to the main strip for food, shopping, and grocery. The apt is small and functional at a reasonable price, but better for 2 people if you plan to spend a lot of time in the apt. Fold-out couch is basic but serviceable. The free laundry is a plus after a day at the beach. Really accommodating and helpful when we had questions or needs. A great place to unplug and relax for a long weekend!

Local options in walking distance: coffeeshop with open mic, oyster bars, bars with live music, lots of different cuisines, blues bar, farmer's market, art galleries, playhouse and movie theater, most major banks.

Owner's Response: Gosh, thank you for such a lovely review. I had aimed to provide just such an experience for my guests when I began this little venture, and you all really described it to a T! So glad that you "get" Lake Worth with its small town charm.

Cute, tidy, but dirty

  • 2 of 5

The property was nicely landscaped, had chickens roaming around and adequate parking. We only stayed 2 nights. The apartment was decorated nicely and seemed tidy at a glance. However, it was too dirty for my liking. Fan blades, bed head board, window sills and base boards were very dusty. There were glass rings on the night stands and place mats. The worst was the scum on the shower floor. Disgusting! The cleaning fee was unjustified.

Nuego and the owner of this beautiful property could not be nicer .

  • 5 of 5

I had an amazing time here. The Apt is beautiful with everything you need and owners are so nice. Nuego even helped me carry my very heavy suitcases up the steps. I feel like I am in the Mediterranean when I stay here. Truly a hidden jewel! I highly recommend this property. It's CHARMING!!!!

This apartment is cozy, clean and in a great location.

  • 4 of 5

In many ways, this was a delightful vacation to a part of Florida we had never explored. We loved Lake Worth for a variety of reasons: a lively downtown with some great little shops & restaurants; a funky little movie theater specializing in indie & foreign films; a variety of music on every street corner; warm, friendly, real people on the streets, and a great public beach minutes away. For a special treat, try the fabulous breakfast at The Pelican, where, along with your typical Americana fare, Sundays feature an additional full menu of Indian food, what a treat! In addition, the wait staff is multi-ethnic & seem to truly enjoy working there. On that note, I spent hours going over the lovely merchandise available at Bali, a shop containing a wide range of jewelry, some wonderful clothes and unusual gift items, while my husband thoroughly enjoyed shmoozing with the shop owner who used to live there & gets back to Bali a couple of times a year to stock up on merchandise and, no doubt, juicy experiences to bring back & entertain folks with. While there was a concern with the place we were renting (which I know has been dealt with by now), we cannot say enough wonderful things about Leslie, who manages the apartment (which, by the way, is very sweet, clean, and walking distance to downtown). Leslie was warm, sharing, very responsive to our needs, and overall, a real highlight to our trip! We would love to rent from her again. Lake Worth is NOT your typical Florida vacation spot, which is why we can't wait to get back!

a lovely apartment, very well run...

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I stayed there when we had to be in town for Grammy's 94th b-day. The cozy apartment was perfect -- private, quiet, short walk to Lake Ave, and like new as it's part of an old carriage house recently restored by the gracious owners, Anne & Richard, who live in the main residence in the courtyard. We felt like we were visiting friends (they even waited up to welcome us when we arrived after a late flight).
