Interaction with Guests
We are there if you need us mornings, evenings and sometimes during the day. I work 4 days, Wed. thru Sat. and my husband is semi-retired.
It is generally very quiet, friendly neighborhood of homes built in the 1950's
It is best to have a car.You can get the city bus a short walk from our house. (I don't recomend this if you are a female traveling alone.) You would need to get a cab, rent a car or reserve a shuttle service to and from the airport. Please look at our GuideBook for recommendations.
We are an hour and a half drive to Orlando Theme Parks. An hour and 10 minutes to Kennedy Space Center and an hour to St Augustine.
Other Things to Note
The water in the kitchen sink takes a minute to heat up.
We have a small above ground swimming pool. If you would like to cool off.
Air conditioning is a small window unit that will keep you very comfortable on a hot day.
Shower height is 6 feet 8 inches.
Just ask- we have bikes and fishing poles if you would like to borrow them.
Sometimes if to many appliances are on at the same time it flips a breaker. It is a simple fix it happens please let us know.
Please no smoking or pets, owner is allergic. We tried having a dog one time but it just aggravated my asthma. Our cat stays outside.
We try to be flexible with check-in and check-out times, unless of course we have back to back guests. In which case, check-out is 11 a.m. and check-in is 2 p.m.
Our bedroom is where you park your car, so try your best to be quiet after 10 p.m. please.
If you use the bicycles please do not leave them un-attended without locking them up.
Please don't set the iron on any wood furniture.
It is greatly appreciated if you don't use the white washclothes for make-up removal, it's difficult to get ot the stains.
Please bring your own beach towels.
This has been our favourite airbnb so far - great communication before we arrived, warm welcome with useful information, lots of little home comforts, lovely BBQ area, safe, immaculately clean, private, quiet and well located with parking. We would go back to Daytona Beach and stay here again, we loved it so much. Daytona is a great beach place to use as a base for spending your whole holiday or exploring other places in Florida and we preferred it to anywhere else for its friendliness and community feel.
We enjoyed our stay at Ruth cottage! It was even better than we expected. Everything was nice, the place is quet, clean, private. Thank you for everything :)
Very quiet place, love it, i will go back. Thanks to Ruth and James, they are very helpfull and fantastic host. I have really enjoy my stay.
We were met by Jim Gilbert and shown around their cute condo. We spent most of our time on the outdoor deck. The bath is
Very nice, the studio is tiled and has an adequate kitchenette. The neighborhood
Is quiet and interesting. You are very close to
Daytona and the beach at Ormond.
I will return soon.
The host was very gracious. We had a change of plans because our
flight was cancelled due to bad weather in Atlanta. I was able to
text Ruth and explain the situation to her via text messaging.
We did arrive the next day after lunch.
The studio was better than we anticipated and we look forward
to coming again.
Ruth and Jim couldn't have been nicer, as well as incredibly thoughtful as to all a visitor could want or need. The cottage was immaculate. Truly it couldn't have been any cleaner; the linens were the whitest of white and added to the sunlight that filled the space...making sunny days even more cheerful! As a woman traveling alone I felt perfectly safe in the neighborhood. Ruth and Jim would occasionally check to see if I needed anything and yet provided me with privacy which was great. I would definitely recommend this studio to all.
I am a hairstylist going on 40 years now, I work parttime for myself in a small hair salon near home. I enjoy fishing with my semi-retired husband Jim in our little boat. Gardening is my therapy. Spending time with our 2 grown daughters and 3 grandchildren is the best.
