Hello: I have been using Airbnb for a several years. Winter 2013 we decided to list our lovely guest house in Jacksonville, FL (from time to time either the guest apartment, guest cottage/house, beach house or one of our corporate rental properties will be available). So I am both a traveler who books through Airbnb and we are now property owners who list on Airbnb. My husband Scott McEachern and I own and manage rental properties in Jacksonville, St. Augustine & Fleming Island, FL and St. Marys, GA (we love the northern Florida and Southern Georgia coastline!).
Scott is originally from Jacksonville, FL ... he is a 4th generation Jacksonville native! Scott goes boating as much as he can and is a licensed master captain. We met in CA, moved to Jacksonville, FL in 2004 and have been married for 23 years. We have a family run business and our 3 children also work in the business (all girls, Catalina and Rose are away at college and Karen-June is the last one left at home).
A little about me: I was born in the Philippines (my dad was a diplomat), but raised in Los Angeles / Hollywood and grew up with "industry" people. I am an Actor-Producer and am thrilled that the film industry is greatly expanding in Atlanta (as was strenuous to go back to L.A. all the time).
I do travel quite a bit so if you are booking one of our rentals, please make Scott your primary contact.
I hope Airbnb continues to be a great site as we have enjoyed the community and safety aspects and all the hosts I've stayed with have been really great people! We listed our property as we want to give back to Airbnb as a host.
