About this listing
We also have 1 other private bedroom downstairs in our home that would have a shared/private bathroom (depending on if both rooms are being rented out simultaneously). Please inquire about the other room, if this one is full.
There is a fridge out in the garage for you to keep your food items. We do have a full kitchen inside the home that we would be happy to share with you.
Our home is half way between Tallahassee and Jacksonville, FL We are 3 hours from Disney. The local area has many springs where you can snorkel and do cave diving...(not our thing) We are 65 miles from the Gulf - FISHING!!! Also, we are 3 miles outside the town of Live Oak - we actually just made the news, due to recent weather-related issues. Thankfully, our home was not affected by the weather.
We have internet and Dish network. Private parking (in our driveway).
We are a very laid back couple and look forward to your visit.
Full access to the downstairs, with the exception of my bedroom.
Interaction with Guests
We may be retired, but we stay pretty active in volunteer work in our local community. Therefore, we apologize if we may not have as much time to spend with you, as we would like.
It's quiet and serene.
There is no public transportation here.
Other Things to Note
If for some reason you do not hear back from me promptly, I do apologize. Technology can be a headache sometimes. And, as I mentioned before - busy schedules, but I will try to be as prompt as possible.
Just be respectful. Thus far, our hosting experience has been nothing but EXCEPTIONAL! We have had wonderful guests! No smoking on the premises. And, we are unable to accommodate pets inside our home.
Gracious hosts in a spacious setting. I make frequent trips to the area and this experience was head-and-shoulders above my stays at area motels. Located on the outskirts of Live Oak in a sparsely settled subdivision. Very quiet with a lovely garden setting.
Doris met me at the door when I arrived later than expected due to heavy traffic on my travels. She offered me cold water and showed me to the private room with bath upstairs. She gave me a remote for the satellite TV and then left me on my own. The room was immaculate! Nice ceiling fan kept me cool as I like for sleeping. The next morning she had coffee ready for me before I left and offered an assortment of different options for breakfast. I met some local church friends of hers as I was leaving, all very nice. I recommend Doris' home.
The room was completely private as advertised with a full bathroom and comfortable bed. Doris was welcoming and kind. She even made is coffee and left us donuts for breakfast.
We had a lovely overnight stay with Doris on our trip back from New Orleans. The room was very spacious and the bed quite comfortable. In the morning before leaving, Doris provide a delicious breakfast of quiche and bacon with coffee. We thank her for her hospitality.
Doris has a lovely home and made us feel welcome. The bedroom was quite large and comfortable. Everything was very clean and the home was in a very nice new neighborhood. Live Oak is likewise a clean and inviting community. When we arose, Doris fixed us a nice breakfast. My wife liked the quiche very much. Doris kindly shared the recipe with us. The coffee was most welcome. We hope to stay with Doris again on our next visit to north Florida. Well worth a return trip and further exploring.
Our Stay with Mrs Doris was well beyond our expectations. She has a beautiful home, very clean and private. She was a wonderful hostess. Great coffee, juice and breakfast. Would highly recommend a stay with her.
Doris was a great host, she helped us with all our questions, washed our clothes, and opened her house to us. The room was very nice and clean, and excellent with its own private bathroom. We would definitely stay there again.
Doris is very open to conversation, but will let you have your privacy if you so desire.
About the Host, Don & Doris
My wife and I are a mature, kind, and caring couple. We love spending time with our friends and family. And we love meeting new people. While we have many children and grandchildren, none of them reside with us. We love traveling as well.
We look forward to the opportunity to host you in our home. We respect your privacy, but on the same note, we're more than happy to meet and spend a little time with you here on your visit, if you should so desire.
