“A well deserved 5 stars!”

Reviewed 22 Dec 2015

Best location I have had in years in Florida. Our one-month stay was great in all aspects. Quiet low-density residential dsitrict. 5 minute walk to a nice urban park where we could take our daily 1-hour walk. 5 minute walk to City Place and its big stores, restaurants and entertainment and 5 more to lively Clematis Street and its local friendly stores and restaurants. 5 minute drive to the beach and easy parking. 5 minute drive to the Church and just a few more minutes to unclogged roads in all directions making motorcycle touring highly pleasant. All this completed the extremely good care given by Jim, our host, to our comfort and enjoyment of the premises. We definitely keep the Carriage House as our # 1 housing location when we return to spend some vacation time in Florida.

“Fantastic experience”

Reviewed 14 Aug 2014

My experience at the Carriage was fantastic. It was very clean and organized. Loved sitting at the tiki bar with a glass of wine. Also, relaxing at the pool was so peaceful. I highly recommend staying at the Carriage. I know I will be back thank you Jim!

“The charming Carriage House....”

Reviewed 8 Jun 2014

We had a wonderful time at the Carriage house. we had everything we needed. we enjoyed walking to City Place for a nice dinner and coming back for a swim in the beautiful pool. Having our own tikki bar was the highlight of the place. The Beach is only about 1.5 miles and very easy to get too! We definitely recommend this quaint and beautiful place to anyone. we are looking forward to going again next year!

“Simplement Génial”

Reviewed 14 Feb 2014

It is a house of 30 years with beautiful wood moldings. Jim is simply awesome and always there to help us. We are 5 minutes walk to City Place, where we find everything. 10 minutes Flagger street with its promenade and Clematis Street. Approximately 30 minutes walk to the ocean. You can not get bored there. We really had a great time and I will go back one day with great pleasure. Jim thank you for your hospitality. Your first Quebecers.

“Wonderful get away”

Reviewed 20 Dec 2013

We had a wonderful long weekend get away in the Carriage House with our two young boys. Although some of the interior and furniture were old, everything was neat and fairly clean. Our favorite part of our stay was the pool and tiki bar area outside; very charming and full of character. Also the location was great and we felt it was good value for a very reasonable price.

Owner's reply: Thanks Antoinette, the location close to CityPlace and downtown West Palm Beach is a plus, and I try to keep the price reasonable. Furnishings,and interiors are well maintained and replaced as needed, this past year there was new flooring installed in the bathroom and smaller bedroom and 3 new air conditioners installed. The previous year there was a new couch and flat screen TV added. The original claw foot tub,and sinks are from the 30's and add to the character to the apartment

“Wonderful Privacy”

Reviewed 1 Sep 2013

My recent stay at the Carriage House In Down town west palm beach. Very relaxing a tranquil oasis. 10 minutes walking or driving from all the comedy clubs, restaurants, retail stores. Excellent vacation property !

“Enjoyed the peaceful apartment”

Reviewed 11 Feb 2013

This apartment is a short walk from CityPlace which is a great place to relax and enjoy all the fun, updated mall stores and some great restaurants. The outdoor area is quaint and tranquil, but the pool is cold and is just for decoration. There is no nearby beach. But the old world charm of West Palm Beach is really captivating and the apartment is a short 20 minute drive from Wellington Horse Events, and very close to the airport.

Owner's reply: Aline Thank you for staying with us, and I am glad you enjoyed the apartment and CityPlace. The pool is solar heated and dictated by the weather, in the winter months the pool temp. is usually in the mid 70s. The apartment is in West Palm Beach so Palm Beach is the closest beach which is 1.5 miles away. The neighborhood where the apartment is located in one of the oldest in West Palm Beach dating back to the 1920s which went through a revival in the 1990s.

“Love this cottage!! Will return soon!!”

Reviewed 3 Jan 2013

My husband, 13 yr old son and our beagle Audi stayed here. Let me start by saying, the moment we walked into the downstairs cottage we felt a sense of relief! The cottage Was spotless, bright and comfortable! Our dog really Enjoyed the property. The owner, Grenny is a love!! He and his wife are true dog/cat lovers. Several times Grenny Even offered to watch Audi our beagle. The property location was perfect for us! Several good restaurants located within walking distance. We really enjoyed the little Chinese "takeout only" place one block away. We will definitely be returning.

“Perfect Tropical Paradise”

Reviewed 13 Oct 2012

My dog, son and I stayed here on 2 occassions for a period of over of 3 months while I was house hunting and without a doubt a great place to stay. The home is delightfully comfortable, and difficult to leave. The owner Jim was extrememly helpful, responsive, friendly, and just so nice! The neighborhood is lovely, and nice for walking, dog park just down the block, not to mention the acessiblity of City Center, intercoastal, everything is within walking distance. . It is a beautiful property, expertly kept, with all the amenities I could think of! Thank you so much for a great stay!

“Great Location”

Reviewed 17 May 2012

This property is super cute. As stated in other reviews the garden/courtyard is a real tropical treat. However, the location is unbelievable. Great historic neighborhoods, close to Convention Center, City Place, Clematis Street and the rest of Downtown West Palm Beach. I parked my car and did not move it for almost the entire week. So, much to see and do within walking distance. The beach, antique shopping, museums, and other entertainment are a short car trip away. Wholeheartedly recommend this property!

An amazing Oasis!
None of these reviews exaggerate, the Carriage house is a fantastic place to stay! Extremely clean, well equipped and convenient to all amenities, this little slice of West Palm beach will not disappoint. Wonderful owner Jim is very kind and knowledgeable :) The neighborhood is fantastic! City Place and the Convention Center are literally a couple of blocks away. You do not require a car to explore the area. My partner and I rented bikes from a the trail shop for the week and had a blast. We will most definitely be staying at the carriage house next time we are in Palm Beach :)

Review #4871696 Great Rental Place
I stayed in this vacation house for three months while interning at a paper in West Palm Beach. This was the best experience I could have hoped for! Jim made sure you had everything you need, and there is everything you need in a short distance. I road my bike to the grocery store, and to the beach. If I ever come to West Palm again I will be renting this place again! Thanks again Jim.

The property is very clean and well-maintained. The owner and his partner are very nice. The pool is wonderful and the bar just cute. I rated only 4 stars because of the railway which is only a couple of feets away. At night there are at least 2 - 3 trains passing by. In a 2 weeks stay you can not get used to it so are awake every time. But this really is the only negative.
My Response
Thanks Anke, I am glad you enjoyed the apartment itself. The railway is actually a block or so away. With the windows open the train horns are louder, but most the time the windows are closed and the a/c on in the apartment making it less noticeable. The neighborhood association and the City are working on getting the quiet zone reinstated which will help quit a bit.

Nice apartment

Very special rental
★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Such kind and genuine owners!!
I cannot fault this lovely place at all. Very clean and child friendly - my son loved it and desperately wanted to bring the Bobcat home!
The style and decor is quite European and quaint. Two big bedrooms meant that we had room to unpack and live happily for nearly two weeks.
Walkable to city place and clematis and close enough to hit the beach early in the mornings.
We will definitely be back. Thanks Jim.
