This was my first time using Airbnb and will definately not be the last. Abigail is such an amazing host! She kept in contact with me via text/airbnb msging prior to arrival and even offered to pick me up from the airport. From the moment I met Abigail, I fell in love with her positive energy and beautiful personality! She is one of the most caring and thoughtful person I have ever met. My original plan was to come to WPB with a friend however, due to unforseen circumstances, I ended up going solo. Abigail made sure I made the most out of my trip. She assisted me with planning out my days of venturing and when ever possible, she was part of those plans which was a treat!
Abigail has a beautiful home! The energy and flow she created is a match to her personality! It is super clean and well maintained. My room was very spacious with big closet space. The bed was so comfortable, there were even times when I didn't want to get out of bed lol. Another place I spent most of my time was in the backyard, on the new deck! It is a perfect spot to do yoga on or sun tan. She has big plans for the backyard and I can't wait to see the finished product when I return. The house is located in a safe and quiet neighborhood and short distance to the grocery store. One of my favorite walks is on Flagler Drive, along the intracoastal.
Overall, I had the best experience and I look forward to coming back!
Mary Grace you are a dream guest! Your delight and appreciation for the simple things was a treat for me . . . I enjoy what I do, but I enjoy it so much more when it pleases my guests and you are such a lovely human!
I am sorry your friend could not make the travel plans with you, but I am so glad we met! You (know you) are most welcome to return and don't forget
the "boomerang bonus"! Ananda misses you!
Abigail was a fantastic host she was always willing to go the extra mile to help out and has plenty of information and helpful tips to offer during your stay. All images and descriptions plus some improvements are as you see them in her pics with a great shower and very comfortable bed.
I really enjoyed having you in my home. You are a lovely guest!
Your cheerful demeanor was a pleasure every day. Your adventures in my home town have enlightened me to more places to recommend to future guests.
Thank you for selecting my home for your stay in south Florida. I hope you'll return. You can ask for the "repeat traveler" discount.
Abigail's place was a perfect fit. She is a very warm and thoughtful inn keeper. She communicated with us before arrival, anticipating our needs, finding out what we wanted for breakfast, making sure we were able to find keys on arrival. The room and bed are comfortable, the home is clean and inviting. Abby left us beach towels, beach chairs, drinks for our daily excursions to the water. It was Donovan's Birthday and Abigail went out of her way to help research where I could get his favorite meal. She left cake, décor and even a card. If you want to stay in a place that is 2 blocks from a 10 star walk along the intercoastal, relax your socks and get spoiled with special treats while you do it, book with Abigail! We loved it and will be back.
Abigail is a hardworking, wonderful person. Great personality.
The neighborhood is very safe and the walks along Flagler Drive in the mornings are the best. Located close to the beach and some very good shopping areas, there are also many unique and interesting restaurants and bars to explore. Perfect area for biking and long walks.
From the moment I arrived, Abby made me feel very comfortable and welcome in her home. Abby is very warm and clearly enjoys people, so I felt right at home the entire visit. Prior to my arrival, Abby and I discussed why I was visiting and she was very interested in learning about what I liked/needed to make my stay even more enjoyable. She kindly had delicious coffee and a French press available along with my favorite coconut milk on hand - something I wasn't expecting at all. The room was lovely, comfortable, clean and private. Finally, I really enjoyed the places she recommended or took me to herself. Abby was great about being available to talk or not, whatever was most comfortable for me. I feel like I have a new found friend in Abby and would recommend staying at her place to anyone. Loved the nearby walk along the Intercoastal and the quick drive to Palm Beach. Everything was a great experience!
I am only a reflection of yourself!
You are a wonderful human, so easy to accommodate.
It was a total pleasure hosting you.
Thank you for your kind words about my space.

I am so glad I could make you comfortable; it was fun for me.
You have expanded my life in a lovely way. I am so glad we met!
Abigail is a very welcoming hostess both in our telephone contact and arrival. She left a key for us and had a welcoming safe candle and message in our bedroom. Our first and last mornings she surprised us with a beautiful fresh fruit platter. Very helpful was her guide to local restaurants and things to do. Both she and her son were very knowledgeable about computers and helped us with boarding passes and downloading photos. Her home is spacious and attractively furnished, and ideally located to a beautiful intracoastal waterway walk and beaches. Being dog friendly will add to the pleasure of you visit.
Thank you so much for taking me birding!
I have been out in the kayak and spotted many birds you showed me on our visit to the Green Cay wetlands.
I have a new found interest in birds thanks to your tutelage.
Also, I have the bird feeder hanging out back, and have been selecting and planting foliage that attracts birds. Every guest is an adventure of sorts. Thanks again.
Abi provides and warm and comfortable home. I loved the bed and the fresh air throughout the house;) abi is super sweet and does a great job at making you feel at home.

About the Host, Abigail
I am an energetic, optimistic, socially gregarious, enthusiastic, open-minded and open hearted human who enjoys meeting and hosting folks on airbnb.
Currently, I teach Nursing. I appreciate being outdoors, kayaking, and cycling. I also brew kombucha, grow sprouts and juice greens. I am renovating my back yard a bit at a time ~ looking forward to the outcome of it being the space I envision with a deck and plants that attract birds and butterflies, and a place to relax and daydream.
My future holds possibility and promise of travel ... I plan to get to as many places around the world that I can manage. My life changed early when I became a mom. My two children, now adults, have been my greatest teachers. I have given myself fully to being a parent and now desire to give myself the gift of travel and adventure . . .
I am about awakening! Making conscious choices; Minimizing my carbon footprint; Helping others see what is good in each opportunity . . .
Loving & Learning & Laughing
My Philosophy: Be the love you are!
I wake up grateful for another day.
Constantly being edited by Life, I try to see the good in every opportunity.
That is my practice.
Kindness is my religion.
"Experience is what you get when you didn't get what you wanted"
~ Dr. Randy Pausch
So Life happens, mostly in an amazing and good way . . . sure there are things that can stress me out, but I focus on what I can do, where I can make a difference. That helps me stay at peace.
I enjoy meeting people and I hope to travel more.
Looking forward to your smiles!
