About this listing
Welcome to our peaceful, non-smoking & pet Free home. We are centrally located close to airports, dining, shopping & white sand beaches.
Comfortably fits 4. (ADULTS Only/Parents w Teens considered).
Monthly and weekly prices vary depending on the season. Currently Airbnb does not have the ability to list them individually. Please see the section 'Other things to note' for monthly rates. Contact me for questions or specific weekly rates.
We are located in a nice, clean, and safe neighborhood. We live on the first floor and are unobtrusive hosts. (Pet free due to allergies, no exceptions).
We offer your choice of two queen bedrooms on the 2nd floor with a full, private bath. There is an additional 1/2 bath on the first floor for your convenience.
To us, a booking for two people means they will share one bedroom. If however, you'd like to use both bedrooms for two people, please message us so we are clear about your needs.
For example, two travel buddies may prefer their own bed, or maybe you and a colleague are traveling to a nearby conference or event. By sharing the bathroom you'll save money and we can accommodate you both while giving each a private bedroom. Additional $15 cleaning fee for a booking with two people in two rooms.
For maximum comfort let us know your pillow preference. We offer firm, soft, or tempurpedic.
A variety of coffee and teas are available.
Feel free to join us in the morning for fresh squeezed orange juice or juice your own any time of day. We keep plenty of fruit available so help yourself. For the health conscious feel free to use the various juicers, food processor, and the Vitamix.
Most people live out of their suitcase when they're on short trips so we have a luggage rack in each room. That little convenience is the first thing I look for when we have to be in a hotel for a night or two!
When Steve and I prepare meals they are plant based so if you've been curious about eating healthier, whole foods, or want to join us for a meal or salad, or simply taste-test, there will be plenty to share. No pressure, of course. Questions are welcomed. It's perfectly fine to bring in your food of choice. We eat simply for taste and health. We have eaten everything at one time or another and are not pushy activist types; all are welcome.
While you're here, this is your home and we give you a key. Guests can use the entire living space: kitchen, laundry, etc. Kitchen has a Vitamix, citrus juicer, food processor, and hand held blender. You will have fridge and freezer space as well as cabinet space in the kitchen.
Wifi is throughout the house and backyard/patio. You will have everything you need for a comfortable, fun and relaxing stay. Feel free to BYOB.
Borrow a cooler and 2 sand chairs for a beach excursion. Beach towels provided. Tennis rackets and balls also available.
Be sure to check out the Guidebook to see how close you are to everything.

About the Host, Dee And Steve
We love to travel. Whether you're the type of guest who has your trip figured out and just wants to be left alone or if you need some help getting your bearings and figuring out what to look for and what to look out for, we're here to make your stay as comfortable as possible.
We're quiet, non-drinkers, non-smokers and are vegetarian/vegan friendly.
Steve has a great sense of humor and manages a chain of retail stores. Dee manages rental property and is passionate about making glass art. Her educational background is in Business and Plant Based Nutrition (through Cornell). Both attended University of Florida.
We've cruised the Caribbean quite a bit and a few of our favorite destinations are further away: Tahiti, Cook Islands, Hawaii, Costa Rica, Ireland, and Spain. We're looking forward to exploring Australia, New Zealand, Bali, Singapore, Fiji, Indonesia, and the Philippines.
We know no trip is perfect and it's very helpful to have a flexible attitude when away from home so we've adopted this motto from the movie The Best Marigold Hotel: "Everything works out in the end. If it's not working out, it's not the end."
