Unlike most Airbnb accommodations, you DO NOT have to share a bathroom with anyone. If you need to rent another room please see our other listing " Riverside private room & bath".

We are located in a friendly, walkable neighborhood in the Historic Riverside/Avondale area of Jacksonville which is 3 miles from downtown where the Landing, MOCA ( Museum of Contemporary Art ), Sports Complex and Times Union Center of Performing Arts is located.
We are walking distance to St. Vincent's Hospital, the St. John's River and the shops and restaurants of Park & King.
We are also 1 mile from the trendy 5 Points area which has restaurants, shops a Sun Ray Cinema and the Cummer Museum of Art and Gardens. One mile in the other direction is the upscale shops and restaurants of Avondale. Just up the street from Avondale is the Murray Hill district with it's own quaint restaurants, Community Loaves and my Massage & Wellness Center.
Our neighborhood has many parks dotted through out and is a great place to take a walk, run or ride bikes. We have two bikes that you are welcome to borrow complete with helmets, water bottle holder and bike lock.
We do have cats , but they do not have access to the 2nd floor guest room and are outdoors most of the time - though you may see them coming and going. There is plenty of street parking and one space on premise that is on a first come first serve basis. We do this so that no one gets blocked in. There is also plenty of street parking around the park across from our house.
Your room, the porch out front and bicycles if you like
Interaction with guests
We live in the house, and you will see us coming and going, but we give our guests their privacy, as well.
Other things to note
We offer complimentary coffee and tea. There are several restaurants in walking distance and a Publix grocery store within a mile where you can buy food items. With this said, we are in walking distance to plenty of restaurants where you can find most anything to eat but feel free to bring your own food, drink and snacks.
You must arrange a prior agreed upon check-in time with me as I have other responsibilities and am not at home 24/7. Please note that we are not child proofed for small children. You will have your own key to come and go as you please, however, we ask you to do so quietly as you will be accessing your private room through our common area. No smoking indoors. There is a front porch where you can relax and read a book or just day dream. You are welcome to visit with us in our living room, however, your room is large enough if you prefer more privacy. No more than 2 guests per room. Sorry, no pets but you can enjoy our cats.

After working in the Medical Nutrition field for over 20 years and running a traditional B&B in my home for over 8 years I decided to make a career change. I recently opened a Massage and Wellness center where I practice the art of Thai Yoga Massage Therapy. I also enjoy hand-building pottery pieces and constructing mosaics in my spare time. My husband is an engineer and likes to tour on bicycle and sail. We both enjoy nature, art, movies, hiking, kayaking sailing, our cats and meeting new people.
