The Space

* Please read entire listing *

Eddy and I have 2 bedrooms for rent in our historical home in Springfield, Jacksonville.

This listing is for our bedroom that has a QUEEN size bed (check our other listing for the other bedroom which has a full size bed). This bedroom as a small flat screen TV with cable. It has a small closet and is cozy to sleep-in. We have 2 bathrooms to share with hosts and other guests. No private bathrooms (sorry). There's also wireless internet throughout the house.

We have 2 cats and 2 small friendly dogs who love company! One of the dogs is a barker! He welcomes you in the house as well as barks when dogs pass by outside. This can be a problem for people who like to sleep-in.

Please let us know a few days ahead if you are interested in one of our rooms. We are very busy and need to make sure the house is ready for guests. A message with your intentions for your stay is also greatly appreciated.

The house is over 100 years old, it can be drafty in the winter months, but we make sure guests are comfortable.

Guest Access

You have access to the whole house (kitchen, dinning room, living room, washer & dryer).
Other fun stuff you can borrow:
- Bike & lock
- Museum membership to MOCA & Cummer Museum & Garden
- Discs (freezebies) for playing the Disc Golf course in Klutho Park
- 2 tennis raquets (tennis court 2 blocks away)

Interaction with Guests

Interaction with our guests varies depending on each guests and on our schedule. We want our guests to have the best experience, so we adapt to their needs.

The Neighborhood

Historic Springfield is the oldest neighborhood in Jacksonville. Most homes are over a 100 years old. Like many urban areas in the US, Springfield detoriated with the growth of the suburbs. It is now actively being remodeled, but you will see a lot of abandonned homes and still a lot of poverty. It is a great community of people trying to bring back Springfield to it's original glory. Voted #1 comeback neighborhood of the South by Southern Living magazine and situated in the urbancore of Jacksonville, we are walking distance from Shands Hospital and a five minutes from downtown.
Lots of neighborhood charms; old homes, big trees, coffee shop, candy store, local bars & restaurants... Because of the proximity to downtown, we are centrally located and have easy access to I-95 as well as I-10 and about 20 minutes driving to the Jax Beach. We are also surrounded by great older neighborhoods like San Marco, Riverside and Avondale.

Getting around

We are 15 minutes walk to the central bus station in Jacksonville. However, public transportation is not the best and your commute can be very long.
However if you are visiting downtown Jacksonville and around, we have a bike for guests to use. Walking is not too bad either.

We are 20 minutes from the airport by car or taxi. A taxi ride will run about $30. No convient bus route, sorry.

Other Things to Note

We often host supper club at our house. We call it Urban Feast. You can find us on (website hidden) for upcoming events. We will let you know if a dinner is planned during your stay.

  • We had a great stay with Marie and Eddy! They were flexible with our arrival time as our time was delayed a little. They are easy to talk to and are educated and down to earth. We would highly recommend staying with Marie and Eddy.

  • My husband and I stayed with Marie and Eddie for a long weekend music festival. We got their second room for friends who were also attending the festival. They were amazing hosts who were extremely friendly and informative. They helped us with anything we needed and had coffee made every morning . We loved their charming home and the location was perfect. We will stay with them anytime we are on Jacksonville!

  • Marie and Eddy will make your experience in Jacksonville memorable. I would highly recommend staying here. This is the place to be!

  • In a single word: excellent! Maybe not the most central location (and, as Marie confessed, on a Sunday Jacksonville is also not bursting with life ;-) but Marie more than made that up with helpful tips on what to do and where to go. She even has a guest membership card for the MOCA museum!

    Food tip: Hawkers in Riverside is really really nice.

  • I stayed with Marie & Eddy while I was in Jacksonville for work. During my week-long stay at their house, I felt very welcomed! The house was very clean, and the dogs Rico and Sanchez as well as the cat Earnest were very well behaved pets. My room was spacious, the temperature was just right, and the room itself almost felt like a hotel! Marie and Eddy were always willing to answer any questions I had about the house and Jacksonville. They also asked me to join them on many activities, and I wish I had spent more time with them. I felt very included into the house! This was my first time in Jacksonville, and staying Marie and Eddy definitely made the trip a comfortable, reliable one.

  • Marie and Eddy were great hosts! So generous, we only had one night with them, I wish it had been longer. The room was laid out really well- and everything is set up really well for guests. I really enjoyed the great conversations we had - and glad we were able to find out a bit more about the neighbourhood and the city! Interesting neighbourhood that is seems to be coming back into its own - and close to downtown and great neighbourhoods, including the ballpark. thanks so much again we had a great time with you both!

  • The art of Hospitality is alive and well at Marie and Eddy's Historic Home.
    Not only were my son and I provided with a comfortable place to sleep, we also
    received valuable advice and guidance. I highly recommend their beautiful home in
    Historic Jacksonville you will enjoy your stay..
