My contemporary waterfront home is close to Jacksonville's best sights. Enjoy great sunsets 1 mile off I-95 knowing you're 5 minutes drive or less to the zoo, airport, cruise terminal, and downtown. The kitchen has just been renovated. It's awesome.
400 thread count sheets, fluffy white towels, bathroom that is cleaned daily before and during your stay, access to the living room, sun room, kitchen, deck, patio with fire pit and dock. Basic breakfast including coffee, tea, oatmeal, granola bars and cold cereal.
Main front door entry way with custom code for lock box and alarm arranged upon booking. Welcome kit, detailed directions as well as a listing of (non-sponsored) sites nearby worth checking out if you are enjoying some time off.
Interaction with Guests
As much or as little as they like. I am an unofficial ambassador of Jacksonville and happy to give tips on where to go and what to see. I've been known to host jam sessions with musically inclined guests but am happy to let you keep to yourself if that's your preference. I work a lot and usually turn in by 10 pm so don't expect an all night throw-down.
Space and privacy. The average lot size in Broward Road Estates is one acre. I have two. The big dog in the neighborhood has 10. I'm blessed to have the greatest neighbors in the world. We play poker together, watch each others pets, and bring in each others papers and trash cans when someone goes on vacation.
2 private cab companies have dispatch hubs 5 minutes away or less. Public bus service is within walking distance. Airport is 7 minutes away. Amtrak is less than 10 minutes away via MLK. Down town is 10 minutes or less.
Other Things to Note
There is a fresh fish shop 2 minutes away, and a great local butcher within 5 minutes. Plenty of take-out north and south of my house if you're hungry and don't feel like cooking. You are welcome to use the grill as long as you turn off the gas when you're done.
No smoking in the house but otherwise make yourself at home and relax. If you do smoke, pick up your butts and please don't litter. Read the few posted placards because they contain information that will maximize your comfort during your stay.
Refund Policy: Based on 3 last minute bookings made with less than 24 hours notice that were subsequently cancelled prior to check-in, I now have a $29/night no-show fee, which is less than 50% of a one night stay that I don't have to give at all. It's not fair to have me pay out of pocket to pay my service to clean the room and bath, tie up my space so nobody else can book it, and then ask for a 100% refund for you not showing up. My job as a host is to have your room ready on arrival which I always do. Your job as a guest is to keep the booking you reserve, or cancel with appropriate notice per AirBNB policy so other travellers have the chance to enjoy the room. Thank you.
Vincent is a wonderful, welcoming host. His home is interesting, serene, and comfortable. I felt safe and secure. It was a great experience being a guest in his home.
The reservation was canceled 113 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
I spent a wonderful week at Vincent's quiet, stylish and comfortable home. I appreciated having a private bathroom and access to the kitchen. The waterfront location is a plus, and watching the sun set from his deck is a delight for the soul ! The site is easily accessible to the airport and main roads.
Vincent truly has the Airbnb spirit ! He's a charming and frienly host, ready to answer questions and advise you. Besides all that, Vincent is an IT wizard, and was very helpful indeed with computer access to my e-mail account. He gave generously of his time and talents to help me, for which I am immensely grateful.
Vincent's home was wonderful. If you are a water person, you will love this set up. Vincent did everything he could to ensure we had a comfortable stay. We had a good conversation and found that Dave and Vincent's life draw an interesting parallel. They need to play a game of pool some day soon. Perhaps on our way back. Thanks Vincent.

Our first airbnb experience, and it could not have been better! Vincent is a perfect host; we felt like we were visiting an old friend and his attention to detail was amazing from the driving directions to the farewell. The bed and bath were great and the house is perfectly situated to take in the Jacksonville area. Thanks Vincent!
This Waterfront house is fabulous! Well beyond the description listed. Beautifully decorated and situated on a lovely lake. Every room was clean and spacious. Vincent is a welcoming, friendly and an interesting and happy person. As is his girlfriend Ronnie. The ease of the location to the highway is a plus too. Hopefully, I can stay when I pass through this way again. Thanks! Kathleen
The greatest compliment in this business is a repeat customer. This 2nd visit a year later was better than the 1st. We went to dinner with Vincent and Ronnie and played games afterwards. An evening doesn't get better than that!
