An Antique Moroccan Rug lies on the African Hardwood floors and Antique Photographs align the walls.

ELECTRONICS: include a New Sony Personal Docking Station / Clock / Radio with available Lighting Adapter for accommodation with the iPhone series 5; a New 46'' Samsung LED TV with remote; and a New JBL Wireless Headphone for silent listening to the LED TV while your partner / lover sleeps.

The two French Doors, with pull-down shades for Privacy, lead out to the VRBO's Private 40 ' Pool and 9 ' x 4 ' Jacuzzi, the Open Bar, the Outdoor Grill, and across from the bar the Living Room / Seating Areas under the Tent. There are two Outdoor Dining Tables: one that Seats 4 persons just outside the VRBO's French doors and near the Grill; and a Larger Table that Seats 6 persons just outside the Tent.

OUTDOOR SHOWERS: There are two Outdoor Showers: One directly behind the outside wall to the VRBO bathroom on the 1st floor; and the Other directly behind the 9 ' x 4 ' Jacuzzi.

The Villa Amorosa's architect, G. Sherman Childs, worked for the Palm Beach architect Addison Mizner originally as Mizner's chief draftsman. While working for Mizner, Childs was involved in many significant projects such as the Everglades Club, El Miraso, Playa Rienta and Casa Bendita.

Subsequently he became an architect for himself and opened up his own office in Lake Worth.
