Check In
Where do I begin...?? We stayed with Marie for four nights. Marie did not just treat us as the next guests in her home, but as her new friends. Anything we needed she accommodated for, plus more. She made us feel right at home and welcome in every way. Not to mention her cutest little dogs Rico and Sanchez who are just as welcoming! We rode bikes into The Landing, and she cooked us dinner the following night. Its simple to say that we didn't just find a great Airbnb host, but instead, gained a new friend. Thanks again for everything again.

Marie was a wonderful communicator - giving us recommendations for where to eat and what to do in Jacksonville. Our room made me feel like we were on an island and I loved that she had chalkboards on the doors with our names on it. She also had water, beer and juice for us to drink as well as cereal and coffee for breakfast, and this is always so appreciated. Check-in and out was simple and Marie was a wonderful host. Her house is huge!
