Eddy and I have 3 bedrooms for rent in our historical home in Springfield, Jacksonville.
This listing is for our bedroom that has a FULL size bed. We have 2 bathrooms to share with hosts and other guests. No private bathrooms (sorry). There's also wireless internet throughout the house.
We have 2 small friendly dogs who love company! Sanchez and Rico. Rico is a barker! He welcomes you in the house as well as barks when dogs pass by outside. This can be a problem for people who like to sleep in.
A message with your intentions for your stay is greatly appreciated.
*we will not accept short term stays months agead. But will accommodate them a week or 2 before arrival*

Interaction with guests
Interaction with our guests varies depending on each guests and on our schedule. We want our guests to have the best experience, so we adapt to their needs. We enjoy getting to know our guests.
Other things to note
We often host dinners with friends and parties. We will let you know if a dinner is planned during your stay. We always encourage our guests to join.
Don't let the pets out! Please, keep the front door closed as you bring luggage in and out.
No smoking allowed!! This also includes: Marijuana, e-cigarettes... Use the porch. Opening windows in your room is still considered smoking inside. Go outside.
Extra guests have to be approved by us. If you would like to bring a friend home, please ask. That's just simple courtesy.
We prefer guests don't keep food in their rooms as it attracts bugs. Unopened food items are ok. Use the trash can in the kitchen to disposed of food and takeout containers.
Obvious, but must be mentioned:
Please, be respectful of our space, animals and other guests. This means: - - Try to be quiet when people are sleeping.
- Pick-up after yourself in common areas.
- Personal hygiene is important (shower, use deodorant...)
- Be nice to our animals.
- Ask before inviting "friends" over. Late night unexpected guests will result in a termination of your stay.
Cancel up to 5 days before your trip and get a full refund, including service fees.
