Interaction with Guests
I will try to to meet all quests as my work schedule dictates just to give an overview of the space. I work three blocks away so I can usually come over on short notice. For extened stay guests I can assist with providing fresh linens and towels even though the apartment is failry well stocked. Please call me if you need anything during your stay. If something isnt to your liking a quick call to me would be the best option to see if I can rectify it rather than complaining about it afterwards when I havent been notified of the issue or given a chance to fix it. In the event of personal travel , or late guest arrivals I have electronic keyless entry so confirmed guests can come and go at their leisure .I do work a full time job and also have 7 non furnished rental units in addition to this B-n-B property to manage so please keep in mind I will do my best to meet you in person and I will try to exceed your expectations ! Looking forward to hosting you! Daiv
Murray Hill /Rvierside is a tradtional urban neighborhood where most people know their neighbors, I actually have 4 rental properties on this block, but this is the only 1 of 2 fully furnished places I have. I know most people on this block.There is a good restaurant located aboout 10 minutes walk away called the Edgewood Dinerwhich offers up tasty meals with an urban flair. The iconic "Dreamette" is a 60 year old ice cream shop which is an institution in this neigborhood and is only 7 minutes walk form the apartment. Another must visit is the Edgewood Bakery which is 100 yards part the Dreamette and across the street from the Crazy Egg.. The pastries are to die for, but they also offer sit down breakfast, coffees, brunch and lunch with a lovely outdoor patio for people watching. Eveything is home made here..The best pizza and calzones in town can be found at Moon River Pizza about a 3 minute car drive from the property but about a 20 minute walk and just down the street from the Bakery and Edgewood Diner Restaurant. .Trendy Avondale is about 3 more minutes by car and Hip Riverside eateries,bars and clubs are only a 2 minute drive in the other direction. Please inquire if you need specific recommendations for restaurants while here. There are also many interesting homes in this part of town and this is one of the two parts of town where you can still find a few homes that were built pre 1900. My personal house is a 1915 Craftsman Bungalow. There is one of 2 known exsiting SEARS KIT HOMES in Jacksonville in this neighborhood. You will see 1920 houses next to 1950 houses and there virtually is no two homes alike in many parts of this neighborhood.
Public transportation (buses) stop 2 minutes from this place but unfortunately not comparable to what one may find in other large urban areas.. In other words it takes forever to get somewhere unless their destination is right on one of the main lines. A car is recommended.Uber is now available in town and is another viable option!
Other Things to Note
Murray/Hill Riverside is a true urban neighborhood which means its comprised of a very diverse cultural cross section of people. If you are uncomfortable with people that differ from you in terms of relgion,ethnic background, country of origin or sexual orientation perhaps this area may not be right for you. Please note I cannot control neigbors,or situations outsde of my unit but I can control the conditon,upkeep and the cleanliness of my space. If something is not to your satisfaction I will do my best to fix it within reason.If something is not to your liking please advise me upfront to see if there is anything I can do to rectify the situation. Letting me know of an issue after you check out is not the best way to remedy a situation! Vague or catty comments about scenarios that I cannot control will only diminish your "desirability" to future hosts as we do make note to Airbnb and other hosts guests that are unreasonable, rude, destructive or just plain undesirable.
I expect my guests to be respectful of my space and take care of it as their own. This is a non smoking apartment, however you may smoke on the patio outside.Any major damages will be reported to Air B-n-B. I expect ladies and gentlemen to act as such and to be aware that possible downstairs clients may not appreciate loud talking, loud tv or loud anything after 9 PM as they may be sleeping or relaxing . Common courtesy is the rule!
