Just about 20 steps to the sand! The 'Glad' House is 5 Bedrooms. 2.5 baths and sleeps 8 people comfortably. It's called the GLAD HOUSE because you are always glad to get there!
HOUSE BUILT WITH LOVE
We hope you will treat our house with love and respect, as it is our SANCTUARY.
NO SMOKING IN OR ANYWHERE NEAR THE HOUSE. The smoke travels into open windows and bothers the neighbors. We prefer non-smokers all together, as smoke gets on clothes and transfers to furniture etc. yuck!
Please be quiet and respect that it is NEVER ok to be loud. Our neighbors are close, so we will be called if it is noisy and we will come to the house. Quiet voices at ALL TIMES outside. If you are loud inside, please close the windows. Never play music loud.
We LOVE animals, but can't allow pets at this house (we actually have goats at our other house!). All floors, bedding and rugs are new. Our yard is pristine----plus we must consider our other guests allergies. So no, never, please don't even ask.
LOCK UP EVEN WHEN YOU ARE THERE
All doors and windows must be locked upon leaving the house--even for a short time, as it is the beach and opportunists can be anywhere. Keep the front door and gates locked when you are home, as well - it is just smart. We keep the back doors to the patio open and windows open when we are there - but close and lock all when you leave.
Do not sit on rails or climb anywhere off the deck.
Due to damages and climbing temptations, no kids under 7 years of age - this is firm. Babies and well-behaved and watched children ages 7 and up are very welcome. Our house is kid-friendly, but it is NOT baby or toddler-proofed. Children are NEVER allowed to handle the electronics and are not allowed on the balconies or roof deck - ever. Please never allow Sharpies or magic markers of any kind into the house or any dark colored juice. Please choose juice in light colors and never allow your child to be unattended. We offer a toys, high chair, playpen, booster seat all for you to use at your own risk. Toys are in den in black benches, other items in closet of Sunshine Room. I will be happy to assist you with any special needs that you may have for your children.
If you do not know how to cook, please do not try to learn in our kitchen -- we have high end pans and a white quartz counter top. There are great restaurants all around us :) So please enjoy them! If you know your way around a kitchen, then please cook and enjoy our beautiful kitchen! NEVER cut on our counter tops or place any hot pans on them either. There are cutting boards and hot pads everywhere. They were incredibly expensive. Please be careful with candles.
BE NICE TO NEIGHBORS
Never park in their driveways, put your trash in their cans or play loud music. Keep noise down at night, as this is their sanctuary too.
Trash goes out in driveway edge on Sunday nights. Please see how the neighbors do it.
The kitchen has two trash bins - one for recycles in the back, and one for trash in the front. Glass, clean paper, clean cardboard and plastics with 1 or 2 get recycled.
No parties ever please, unless it is pre-approved.
Small group showers, birthday parties, wedding dinners are possible when discussed.

About us: we love the outdoors--surfing, hiking, biking, good food and wine. We travel for our work in the fashion industry, so our greatest luxury is to stay home and enjoy the beautiful places we have created. We love to entertain friends, listen to music and enjoy all that California and Florida has to offer.
We know a lot about the area, as we have hiked the local mountains, biked the local trails, enjoyed the local wine trips and know the best surf breaks.
In Florida we have enjoyed the St Johns River for years and raised our kids there. We have fished the creeks and enjoyed all the area has to offer.
Our approach to life is very Zen and we believe you should appreciate every moment and every important person in your life. Take a moment to breathe, watch the sunset and take a bike ride. Leave your stress behind and enjoy our home!
