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 , I will have a lockbox on the unit so confirmed guests can come pick up the apartment keys and go as needed.
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 Crazy Egg which 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 Crazy Egg 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.
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!
This was mine and my husbands FIRST airbnb experience and I could only hope to have as great of a time with future stays as I did at Daiv's listing! He was SO accommodating with our late arrival (he even turned the heat on for our arrival due to the cold weather) and was a PLEASURE to interact with! My husband and I came to Jacksonville for a Billy Joel concert and were so please to see such a well decorated, comfortable and clean place! Daiv even had delicious treats on the counter for us and our puppies (that he also so graciously accommodated)!! He made us feel very welcome and was very eager to answer any questions about the area and gave us some amazing suggestions for places to eat and sights to see! The apartment itself was very inviting and fully furnished with anything you might need during your stay and was extremely well kept! I am so thankful to have had such a wonderful, caring and accommodating host! On behalf of my husband, my mini dachshunds, and myself, we DEFINETLY recommend Daiv and his cozy apartment!! It's great to know that we have such a wonderful place to stay in Jacksonville! Thanks for everything Daiv!!!!
This lodging is a case of mostly good new, and a bit of less than expected in one, particular area.
First, Daiv Schneider could not have possibly have been a better host. He accommodated a last second change in my schedule, without complaint, and he could not not possibly have been more solicitous of my needs. He was a pleasure to work with.
The second floor apartment had been beautifully updated, newly painted in very attractive colors, and the furniture and overall decorative state of the apartment were excellent. The kitchen area, which I didn't think I would use, but did, was FULLY stocked, and Daiv even provided a fresh loaf of bread. In short, once inside the apartment, I think anyone would be pleased to stay here.
The only reservations I have is the neighborhood in which this lodging is located. It had a rough appearance to me, and, at first, I thought I was on the wrong street.
Daiv and I discussed this briefly, and he said that even though it looked rough, it was quite safe, and I have no reason to think otherwise. It's just that its first appearance was not what I expected.
One last nit-picky observation is that my downstair neighbors played some very loud music at times in the early evening, but this stopped by 9:00 pm, and was not a problem thereafter.
So, in summation, I WOULD recommend Daiv's well appointed apartment to other travelers. Just don't be surprised at your first sight of the surrounding neighborhood.
Thank you for your positive comments Caliborne! As I have noted in my property description my apartment is in a working class neighborhood,(the same one I live in) and unfortunately some of my fellow nieghbors are living paycheck to paycheck and many dont have the additonal resources to keep lawns tidy and houses spruced up.But as the old adage goes you cant judge a book by its cover and I am glad you were able to look past "the cover". Thanks again for your business.
Daivs apartment is truly cozy! From the moment we entered his apartment, we already felt like home. We stayed for one week.
The house is modern and well equipped. The kitchen has everything you can think of and a large stove, which made us cook at home most of the time. Water pressure ist strong and hot water ist hot. Bedroom is extremely quiet. Internet is fast.
We stayed during a unusually cold time in Jacksonville but the heater in the kitchen had no problems heating the whole apartment.
Communication with the host was perfect. Check-in and Out was flawless. The mini bar is a great idea.
This was one of the best airbnb experiences so far for me. Just stay here!
Daiv met me at the apartment with a smile and baked goods! He gave great suggestions for dinner and breakfast along with directions to my event. Warm and comfy place and hospitality.
Daiv was fantastic and so very helpful and attentive! His place is very well kept and maintained and you can't beat the price. I will definitely be staying at one of his properties the next time I'm in Jacksonville.
Daiv's apartment was perfect for us - compact but not cramped, well furnished and equipped, and very comfortable. Daiv is a great host, available, responsive but not intrusive. We accepted his offer to drive us around to orient us to the city. He pointed us in the direction of local places to eat and good areas to browse stores. A great first experience with Airbnb.
Host Daiv is really friendly and I felt genuinely taken care of by him. From his prompt communication and efforts to make sure my reservation was confirmed correctly to meeting me at the property and showing me around the neghborhood, this experience was beyond expectations. The property matched the photos and any issues Daiv was quick to respond. The location was very close to where I needed to go each day, and I liked the quick airport access it provided me for weekend trips.
The extra amenities of this accomodation made my temporary stay and first time in JAX much less stressful. Thirtsty and too tired to go shopping? Minibar is stocked in the kitchen. Forgot toothpaste/toothbrush/shampoo/shaving cream? It's waiting for you in the bathroom. Feel like watching TV? Over 100 channles on a flat panel LCD with comfy couches to sit/fall asleep on.
If there is anything negative that has to be said, it's that the neghborhood is better suited for a vehicle and you will be taking your suitcase up some stairs. Go a few blocks in the right direction and you will have some great food and shopping options including King street, Riverside and Avondale. IDaiv lists some great options you should consider when staying here.
The owner Daiv met me at the door with they keys to my weekend escape.I walked through the door and was very pleasantly surprised, the apartment was as described in the writeup. one of the first things I enjoyed, was a cocktail, from the honor bar. I was excited to see the espresso machine in the kitchen, for my morning cup. My stay couldn't have been more comfortable, the Apartment was super clean and nicely appointed. I would DEFINITELY recommend this apartment to anyone who needs a place in Jacksonville, the area the apartment is located in is close to restaurants sandwich shops,shopping etc. Great experience,thanks Daiv!
