I live in a two story house, it was built in 1925 but completely rebuilt in 2004. I sleep upstairs, the bedroom for rent is downstairs. The bedroom has carpeting and is furnished with a queen size bed. There is a full bath right outside the bedroom door. The house is located in a quiet neighborhood about a mile north of downtown Saint Augustine. The beach is a 5 minute car ride, same time to downtown and the historic district. Off street parking is offered for your vehicle.
I have cable TV in the living room, right outside of your bedroom, high speed internet wifi is also included.
Coffee or tea served in the morning.
No smoking inside the house, outside porch is OK.
If you use the kitchen, clean up after yourself.
No excessive drinking or noise
No overnight guests
I have a tenant next door, please talk quietly after 9:00 PM
Jack is a great host. His place is very nice and clean. He kindly picked us up at the bus station. I'd absolutely like to come back next time I go to St. Augustine!
Jack was a very friendly host and offered helpful information for getting downtown to St. Augustine and a back roads route to Tampa, which helped us avoid rush hour traffic when we left. The house and the neighborhood were lovely.
Jack war ein super Gastgeber! Um den Gästen mehr Privatsphäre zu geben,hat er extra einen Raumteiler zwischen das Wohnzimmer und das Gästezimmer/Bad gestellt, außerdem durften wir abends seinen TV benutzen. Er hat uns tolle Tipps für unsere Weiterreise gegeben. Es war sehr sauber und ordentlich. Jack war sehr freundlich und zuvorkommend!
My stay at Jacks home was very comfortable. He communicated frequently ahead of time so i knew just what to expect. The bedroom and bathroom were very clean and neat. Jack also had some great travel advice for me.
Jack is a good host, happily sharing his knowledge of the area. Home and room are clean orderly and exactly as listed. Bed is clean and comfortable. Would stay again and recommend it to others.
Jack was a fantastic host. We had a very short stay, but were able to spend a little bit of time getting to know Jack. He was very welcoming, showed us around, and made sure to offer any help that he could. The bedroom was very comfortable and Jack provided a room divider for added privacy going from the bedroom to the bathroom. I would 100% recommend this listing if you are in St. Augustine.
Jack was incredibly welcoming and nice and went out of his way to make us feel welcome and comfortable. I couldn't possibly recommend him more :) His house is located in a great neighborhood which is really close to downtown St Augustine and the room is incredibly cozy and nice :)
I am retired from a 25 year career as a school teacher. I spent most of my time teaching 5th grade gifted students, but I also taught part time for 5 years at the college level. I enjoy traveling but I'm not a big fan of hotels. I have found that hostels and bed and breakfasts are more my style, primarily because it is so much easier to meet people.
I enjoy a number of different kinds of exercise: bicycling, yoga, weight lifting, scuba diving and hiking.
Since I retired, I have completed a yoga teachers training course in the Bahamas and earned my TESOL certificate in Guadalajara, Mexico. I spent two months in Arevalo, Spain in the winter of 2011 participating in a Retired Educators Volunteer Program. I returned to Spain in October, 2011 to take part in a shorter volunteer program. In February 2012 I spent a month in Guatemala volunteering with an organization called Rising Minds. I then spent the months of May and June sailing across the Atlantic to Portugal on a 45 ft. sailboat.
I am lucky that I love almost all kinds of food,over the course of the past few years, I find myself gradually eating less meat and fish and more and more vegetables, fruits, and grains. I enjoy reading, especially on my new Kindle. I have a great deal of respect for writers. I was fortunate to work with a co author on writing two college-level textbooks. It was one of the hardest things that I have ever done, I now leave the writing to others, I just read!
My travels have taken me to quite a few places; seems like the past 10 years or so have been concentrated in Central and South America. I hope, at some point, to be able to spend half my time in the States and the rest living in another country. I would like to do volunteer teaching.
I enjoy music and I find my tastes expanding as I get older, I'm appreciating classical music much more that I ever thought that I would. My favorite is still American R&B, I've stuck with that since I was a teenager.
