Eddy and I have 3 bedrooms for rent in our historical home in Springfield, Jacksonville.

This listing is for our bedroom that has a Queen size bed. 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 small friendly dogs who love company! Sanchez and Rico. Rico 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.

A message with your intentions for your stay is greatly appreciated.
*we will not accept short term stays months ahead. But are happy to accommodate them 1-2 weeks before arrival*

The house is over 100 years old, it can be drafty in the winter months, but we make sure guests are comfortable (heat is at 70F). We provide warm duvets and space heaters. Summer months can be hot! We keep the AC at 80 (27c).

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 racquets (tennis court 2 blocks away)
- Badminton racquets
- Skateboard

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 deteriorated with the growth of the suburbs. It is now actively being remodeled, but you will see a lot of abandoned homes, still a lot of poverty and occasional gun shots (usually in the distance). 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 UF Health / 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, uber is about $20. There is a city bus that will drop you off a few corners away from our house.

Other things to note

We often host dinners with friends and parties. We will let you know if a dinner is planned during your stay. We always encourage our guests to join.

Marie was a great host. She was very helpful and went the extra mile to make my stay enjoyable. The house was clean and had everything required for a short stay. Would recommend it for people requiring a place to stay close to the hospital.

Marie was an excellent host! After my interview dinner got canceled, she was kind enough to share a delicious dinner she had made. Great location, very close to the hospital campus.

Marie was generous, hospitable and always available. I felt like I stayed at a friend's house. The room was spacious, comfortable and fully stocked. The house was super clean and looked super cool. I loved hanging out with the chihuahuas. I recommend Marie's house for anyone that needs to be close to UF Health hospital, but it also very close to the rest of the city. Keep up the good work Marie!
