About Aleksander Alvestad

We are a family with two kids, and we love to travel. We bought a vacation HOME in 2011 because we fell in love in the propety, the neighbohood and the city. There is something with West Palm Beach that other cities does not have. You live on a very quite steet but at the same time you live in the city close to everything. We came to Florida first time in march 2011, first we came to Orlando we went to theme parks for a week, then we rented a car and drove from north to south in order to find our place. When we came to Miami we did not liked the place so much, so on our way back we decide to take a little trip to West Palm Beach because of the movie 'Marley and me' which are based on real story and which were shot in West Palm Beach. When we came there we fell in love in the city, beaches, and the way of life there and decided to buy a vacation home.

Aleksander Alvestad purchased this house in 2011

Why Aleksander Alvestad chose Echo Lake

West Palm Beach is a very charming city, with history and a special atmosphere which is hard to find in most cities. You will not regret when you come here, its so much to see and do here that you will find out that your vacation is too short. We keep this property for us and visit West Palm as much as possible.

What makes this house unique

The value of what you are getting for your money cant be beaten by any hotel or vacation home in the whole área considering the quality vs price. You need to experience the laid back athmosphere in the property, by the pool or in patio, I also use to have a hammock which I used by the playground under fruit threes, you just lay in the hammock and watch your kids play. Most of the neighborhoods in florida are exactly the same, with the same houses, clubhouses, pools ect. This is what makes home away from HOME so special, its different! Its located in established neighborhood where 99% of the people are locals not tourists or tenants. The neighborhood have a soul, with a local church, one of the best art middleschools in US, park and a lake. Also me (and you) have the best neighbors in the world.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Aleksander our vacation has been wonderful. We have seen more of the east coast then we thought we would. The house is perfect. Comfy and cosy. We love having the pool for our down time to relax. Yes the blender and hair dryer came. I have my own so didn't take them out of the box. Keep in mind, we would like to see about renting here from January 15 To April 15th of 2017. Just a thought. Keep us in mind. Very relaxing vacation. We did the beaches, flea markets, down city place. Got turned around and ended up in Jupiter. Great adventures. Even the lion jungle. All has been great.

Great !

  • 5 of 5

The kids (and adults) loved the pool. Few minor issues but all was great! Neighborhood was quiet and location made it easy to get to all the places we had to be very easy and quickly (within 10-20 minutes). Very well equipped (plus lots of other toys, movies, etc. and even things to take to the beach plus more. Great place and will stay again if in area. Enjoyed our accommodations very much.

Great home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in this rental home! We are divers so it was very convenient to return from diving to relax in the saltwater pool. With its location it was close to our multiple dive operators, not to mention lots of convenient shopping for groceries. The neighborhood was perfect for walking our dog, and everyone is so friendly there! Thanks for a great stay!

Our stay was awesome.

  • 5 of 5

The property description was accurate plus some!! The pool was very nice. The screened in entertaining area, which was separated from the pool, was a bonus. There were two grills available, charcoal and gas. The kitchen was fully stocked. I don't think we once said, "oh we don't have X" when we were cooking. With four kids, travel is expensive so staying "home" to eat was so nice. We entertained twice and it was great to have old friends over without having to go to a noisy venue and pay too much. The kids and dogs loved the property. There was beach amenities in the garage. Grandma lives in the area and the next time we visit, we will definitely contact Alex again. I had a few questions and Alex was immediately available to help and very accommodating. Thank you, Alex, for a great stay.

Nice Property!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was at this property was excellent. The house is very well kept and the pool was just as nice as the pictures. It was also nice gesture when the property owner checked with us during our stay to make sure everything was okay. Would recommend this property to anyone.

Good overall

  • 4 of 5

The house was beautiful, the pool was clean and the fruit trees in the back were a sight to see. It had everything we could have needed, so that saved extra money in the end. My only complaint is that the house smelled of cigarette smoke when we got there. After a couple of days it was barely noticeable though. Was very thankful for the washer and dryer. Not having to do laundry when we got back home was amazing.

You can go to a hog, or alligator hunt close to lake okeechobee, its just about an hour drive from home. The house is located in a quite niighborhood close to everything, but in th same time its quite like in village. Cityplace and Clematis street is a must see. Best boat fishing tips is to go to Jupiter, the boat named 'Samana'. Lion Safari is close too, and a local Zoo have amazing atmosphere. Rapids water park is about 10 min drive from home. House has its own playgroung plus playground in the park about 0.2 miles from home. Contact me for more details
