About this listing
This home has beautiful hardwood floors, comfortable beds and a cute backyard. It has been upgraded throughout the interior and is very clean. There is a king and two queen beds, and fits a twin blowup in office. It comfortably accommodates 6 adults.
The house is one block to the intercoastal water on the corner. The neighborhoods along the water are very beautiful and great for jogs or walks. The sunset is also divine from the waters edge. There is a BBQ joint just 1 block away on a funny corner but is only open Thur-Sat. Worth it to go!
You can access the whole house including the office but I ask that you don't go into the office closet at all. That is where I keep my clothes and other personal items that I don't want anyone to touch or use. There is nothing in there that is OK for anyone to take, borrow, etc.
Interaction with Guests
I may be in the area but I may not be; so you will have to likely find your way in to the house on your own and make yourself at home.
I may be travelling when you are staying at the house so my answers might take a half a day or a day. But I promise I will always respond. I have plumbers and AC people, etc, who I can contact for you if anything goes wrong and please DO let me know if anything seems like it needs attention.
There is a great local health food store, Natures Food Patch, just up Cleveland St. And a Publix down Ft. Harrison just about a 5 minute drive or less. Starbucks is right downtown :)
Other Things to Note
There are some stray cats that come to the backyard. Please do NOT feed them as they pee on things sometimes and sleep on the outdoor furniture if they aren't discouraged.
The water hose is long enough to go to the front or the back yard but has only one nozel by the carport. Be sure to turn it off when you are done otherwise it leaks.
The electrical breaker is out by the washer/dryer if needed.
The AC and heating thermostat and control is in the big bedroom behind the horse picture. Please try to keep it at 77 or 78 during the day but not any colder than that otherwise it gets over-worked. At night you can set it down to 76 and the house will be very cool and comfortable. Please do not close any of the AC vents because all need to be open for the house to get enough circulation and all doors should be also be left open during the day and even at night if you want the best cooling in the kitchen area. The side with the kitchen gets the warmest because it gets full sun exposure all day.
There are two driveways and you can park in either of them or both! My neighbor right next door is friendly and loves it when people take a minute to chat with him. Please do not park on the lawn.
One of the streets is a one-way street so please obey the signs (which are sometimes hard to see).
If you have children or pets and they urinate on any carpets it is on you to take the carpet to be cleaned before you leave. If I find any urine smells or stains you will be charged heavily for that. (no one likes the smell of pee in their house.)
If there is no Toilet Paper or paper towels or laundry soap or hand soap, etc, please go buy it. This is not provided for you but if there is some here then you are free to use it :)
No smoking in the house at all. EVER. No drugs at all. You can smoke outside on the deck but use an ashtray.
From Jun 1 - Aug 31, 2015 the minimum stay is 3 nights.
Cynthia's home was perfect for me and my boys! We all had our own rooms which were cozy and comfortable. It was in a great location, great neighbors, restaurants, shops, park are all close by. To be honest, the pictures don't do the house justice!! Cynthia's home was perfect. I hope to stay at her place again next year.
The house exuded charm and was much more than we hoped it would be, the pictures don't do it justice. Our host was always responsive to our questions, the location was perfect for our needs, (close to the beach, close to downtown), and the beds were extremely comfortable. We loved walking the block to the end of the street to see the water. A fabulous time was had by all and I would definitely come back! Thanks!
Host was the best. Cynthia's home was perfect. I hope to stay at her place again next year. Definitely recommend her place to anyone.
It was a very positive experience for all four of us as we stayed in your charming home. While our stay was very comfortable there are a few comments and recommendations that I've placed in the "Private Host Feedback "
All in all in was a lovely stay and all four of us felt that we would return in the future. Thank you so much and may God bless you
We had a great time at Cynthia place. It was very cozy and big backyard space to enjoy the weather.

About the Host, Cynthia
I'm from California and also have a home in Florida. I am currently traveling a lot in Europe as well.
While in Florida I love to go the beach. As a host I can tell you the best local spots to go. The house is a safe and fairly quiet place to come back to. No children are in the house (though I love kids) and everyone works during the day and is normally cheerful. Often I won't be around at all but I am very attentive and have someone in the area if anything goes wrong.
