The space does not share any common walls with our living quarters, which affords you lots of privacy.
There is a private deck with table and 2 chairs where you could have your meals or morning coffee. There also is a fire pit for cool nights.
There is off street parking on the side of our house. The studio's entrance is in the back yard off the back of our garage.

Interaction with guests

One of us will be at home to greet you upon arrival and help you to get settled in any way we can. We like to provide you with as much privacy as you wish. We are on the opposite side of the house most of the time, so we do not hear our guests. We are home if you need us mornings, evenings and sometimes during the day. I work 4 days, Wed. thru Sat. and my husband is semi-retired.

Other things to note

We try to be flexible with check-in and check-out times, unless of course we have back to back guests.
The water in the kitchen sink takes a full minute to heat up.
We have a small above ground swimming pool, if you would like to cool off. Please use caution if you have small children.
Air conditioning is a small window unit that will keep you very comfortable on a hot day. There is a space heater if it gets cold.
Shower height is 6 feet 8 inches.
Sometimes if to many appliances are on at the same time it flips a breaker. It is a simple fix. If it happens please let us know.

Ruth's cottage really is charming, we loved our one night stay here! It was clean and comfortable and she goes the extra mile to provide the house with breakfast and lots of helpful information. We would definitely stay here again!

This welcoming accommodation feels like a home away from home. It's clean, comfortable, sweetly decorated, has everything you need, and is close by to everything in Daytona. I loved it so much I stayed an extra night. There could be no kinder hosts than these. You can't go wrong staying here!

This was my second visit to Ruth and Jim's special place. The small things were special like the fresh flowers and coffee and tea with the appropriate sugar and creamer. The accommodations were "spot on" and we will be back on our next trip to my "hometown".

Ruth's place was amazing! We mentioned that we got sun burnt and she gave us cuttings of her aloe plant! Jim even drove us to the beach! Very wonderful people and an even better stay. Definitely recommend

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. We love vacations in the mountains and the Adirondack mountains in upstate NY are our favorite. Spending time with our 2 grown daughters and 3 grandchildren is the best. We both enjoy meeting new people from all over the world and hosting them at our home.
