Place is fantastic and the people even better!
Marlon and Chevara are fantastic hosts. They are just lovable people that I'll remain friends with. Chevara also very engaged with the Jacksonville community so she is very knowledgeable about whats happening.
Their swanky home is located in a historic part downtown Jacksonville with lots of character and charm. This place is just a short drive to happening places like Riverside and San Marco. I stayed here for two months and it felt like home.
Oh my goodness where do I start... Well I must say I am highly impressed! I love love this place! The vibe and spirit was so soothing, calm, and positive. Our room was nicely decorative. I used the gym and it was very useful. I wish I brought yoga clothes because it looked very relaxing. Mr. Marlon and his wife was very nice and welcoming! I highly recommend this place.
From the very beginning, before I even arrived Marlon and Chevara were attentive and welcoming. They have a beautiful home which they are very open with sharing.
They are extremely social and talkative, without being intrusive. Appreciated the relaxing stay..... Oh And poolside Yoga on Sundays is great also
I had a wonderful experience. I was welcomed warmly upon first arriving. That continued throughout my stay. The hosts were always available to help! I had the privilege of staying there an extended amount of time there and by the time I left I felt like family. the location was great, close to the place I worked and close to downtown, festivities and events. I never felt unsafe in the neighborhood. enjoyed my time there!!
I had an amazing stay here in Jacksonville! Marlon and Chevara were amazing hosts and they really made me feel at home! I would definitely recommend staying here. It's a wonderful area near many historic sites! Loved my stay! Thank you!!
I was coming to Jacksonville for 2 months of business. I went through all the air b & b options and narrowed it down to the Corner Store in historic Springfield. For once I was happy with my first choice. Located In a historical area of Jacksonville it was rich in history and culture. The best part was the residence! It's a cornerstore converted into a modern New York style loft on steroids. Well decorated and very spacious it was a pleasure to stay there and would advise people looking to stay in the area to lock it in because once people find this place out there will be no availability.
