About this listing

this place is surrounded by large trees and solitude. the house does not have overhead lighting in the rooms but each room has plenty of table and reading lamps for a peaceful atmosphere. you can make yourself at home and enjoy the quiet. currently, the backyard fountain is down since the storm. i know. i miss it and really want to get it put back together for everyone to enjoy. i love this house, the trees and the owls and hope you will too.

The space

a 4-bedroom home in a peaceful setting close to the beaches, Daytona and Orlando. 2 rooms are available. room 2 is listed as "where nature comes to play 2 of 2". 1 fullsize bed per room.

(please be clear of any physical handicaps prior to making a reservation. this way I can clarify accessible limitations here and make sure that I can accommodate you to your satisfaction.)

the house is close to everything and surrounded by nature. kayaking, biking, secluded beaches, kennedy space center, indian river lagoon, kiteboarding, fishing......daytona, orlando within 35 miles. about 4.5 miles from the lagoon and another 12.5 miles across the lagoon to the canaveral national seashore.

there are snacks, purified water, fruit, tea, coffee, juice and chocolates close at hand.

wifi, cable, one large tv in the living room, shared full kitchen, private rooms, shared living and dining room. screened porch on the back of the house. ceiling fans in guest rooms.

guestrooms share a large bathroom on one side of the house. the living room, dining room and large kitchen are shared by everyone. the guest rooms each have a fullsize platform bed, open closet, beautiful views of trees and sky. the old closets were torn out 4 years ago and replaced with custom carpentry for attractive storage.

the bedroom windows have mini-blinds. it is perfect if you like the view of the trees and sky. the windows are securely locked from the inside.

it is a really nice, but well-weathered 1976 style ranch house. well worn but cute, orange wallpaper and avocado linoleum of the 70's in the kitchen. and the same era wallpaper in the hallways - the wallpaper and linoleum is peeling in spots, kind of dated but clean. the guest rooms and living room are newly painted and the 4 year old carpets are cleaned every six months to a year. the house is clean and fresh without heavy fragrance. the windows are old and sometimes a trail of ants will find their way in... the cedar oil works great at repelling and killing them.

the ac stays at 77 F or less to keep the house fresh. 72 at night.

we are in the city on a 4.5 acre wooded lot close to a jogging trail, grocery, family-owned restaurants, ymca, schools. the house is very peaceful. bicycles available. plenty of parking room under the live oaks; the house and cars are always shaded. the shaded path to the house from the driveway is about 45 feet over pine needles and oak leaves. it is a little uneven but pleasant for most. it is dark at night so make sure the porch light is when you go out and call if you want me to meet you at the driveway.

the house is a split plan with my office and bedroom on the one side. the kitchen, dining room and living room are in the middle. the guestrooms on the other side.

my two dogs are restricted to my side of the house by lattice gates. we have had two guests so far with allergies to dogs - they had no problem here, probably due to the dogs being chemical free too! sometimes they will come into the kitchen with me if my guests will allow but are not allowed to roam the house. a touch of white dog hair can be found on the clean laundry, my apologies. i assure you the dog hair is washed, lol. there is a lint brush in the bathroom just in case. the dogs when inside, hang out in the laundry room, my office or bedroom. they are not heavy shedders, but their fur gets on my clothes and on the laundry room floors and sometimes in the kitchen.

guest dogs are only allowed in the kitchen and on the porches. not allowed in the guest rooms, living room.

pesticides and room fragrances are not used in the house. fragrances and dryer sheets are not used in the laundry. I have citrus-scented detergent that is not allergenic for everyone to use. real cedar oil is used for occasional ants. the mattresses are sprayed lightly with cedar oil between guests. the wood furniture is polished with the cedar oil too. this is the real oil from western red cedars in texas ( don't worry, the fragrance is very light and hardly noticeable.

helicopter students from europe are frequent boarders. we have had students from 12 countries with very good success over the past 5 years.

the rate is per room for 1 fullsize bed. a futon can be rolled out on the bedroom carpet if more sleeping area is needed. no problem, just let me know.

check out space coast outdoors on the web for all titusville has to offer. the website ends

this is not a true bed and "breakfast"... however, guests can request breakfast and you will always find apples, kombucha tea, fresh greens, purified water, often spinach quiche, spaghetti or chili. i will let you know what is available. and there is plenty of room in the fridge and cabinets (you have your own kitchen cabinets with dishes) if you want to bring in groceries. please do not keep open food in the guest rooms - plenty of room to eat in the kitchen, dining area and back porch. enjoy!

please no outdoor shoes on the carpets. bring a pair of flipflops for the indoors if you like. no smoking.

i look forward to sharing my home with you!

Guest access

kitchen, bath, dining, laundry, backyard, frontyard, living room, tv... keep the volume low on the tv in respect to another guest and me. please use earbuds or a headset for radios and other music. be courteous and make yourself at home.

The neighborhood

wonderful wooded neighborhood, with a jogging trail

Getting around

it is difficult to get around without a car here. please let me know ahead of time if you are not planning on having a car here. unless you are a seasoned cyclist, plan on having a car. or, please inquire as I am usually available for transportation to the wildlife refuge, space center, shopping and beaches if you are willing to compensate my time and fuel. pickup at Orlando airports is 35.00. dropoff and pickup at the local attractions is 50 cents per mile each way. the ksc visitors center is 13 miles each way so that is 13.00 for dropoff in the morning and the same to pick you up. playalinda beach is 17 miles each way.

Other things to note

if you are traveling without a car, please let me know ahead of time so that we can discuss local transportation and so that i can adjust my schedule to accommodate your travel around town if needed. this is not the easiest area to get around on a bicycle. i currently do not have a working bicycle available but will be happy to arrange for one with notice prior to your arrival.

Kathleen has a great personality and is open to make your visit comfortable. I was in town to attend to personal matters and was looking for a quiet spot to just sleep and change clothes. Perfect spot for that.

Kathleen's place is in a residential area and very quiet. She was a very friendly and helpful host. She gave us a great recommendation for dinner at a local brew pub. The house is on a lot with many trees so the house can be a little dark inside. There are table lamps but our bedroom did not have an overheard light, nor does the living room.

Kathleen was a great hostess, she was very welcoming and genuine. Arriving back to the house after a long day and being greeted by those amazing puppies was always a treat. The room was clean and the bed very comfortable. This may have been my first Airbnb stay, but based on how Kathleen opened up her home and treated me so well, It will NOT be the last time. It was a blast.

Kathleen was very friendly. The room was ok but I cannot say very much about staying here since I was only there for one night.

Kathleen is friendly and accommodating.; she has a surfboard and guitar in case you have that interest, and a really big TV. The house is close to local shops and attractions and has wifi throughout.
