Among several other things, Dr. Keith is a semi-retired Vacation Property manager & "Concierge", and Susan is a dream come true!
We enjoy travel, entertaining, meeting people, and because of this became involved with AIRBNB July 2012. It has been a wonderful experience. We have enjoyed the company and experience brought by every guest who has stayed at our home (some of which have already returned, and others plan to). You might begin your stay as a guest, but we shall part as friends!
We absolutely love Florida and the water! Dr. Keith grew up surfing, sailing and SCUBA diving in Southern California. He spent some time living in Hawai'i studying with Kahunas, and relocated to Florida for the weather, water, and lifestyle. When not home in FLA we travel "Down-Island" and visit a variety of dive destinations (sometimes via cruise ship). When at home in FL we spend a great deal of time outdoors and often on a boat. We enjoy food...dining-out or cooking at home with friends. Generally living an active and healthy lifestyle.
We enjoy a wide range of music, and often have something playing in the background.
Because we are outdoorsy, we are also a morning people, and generally in bed by 10 or 11 (unless something interesting is going on). Part of the design of our Sebastian home allows people on different schedules to co-exist without adversely affecting one another. You have to put a real effort into having someone on the other side of the house hear you if the doors are closed.
In our Sebastian home we have 2 guest rooms, so we can have larger parties stay over, and in a pinch even include the sleeper sofa in the front room if needed (like during fishing tournaments or skydiving gatherings).
In our Hutchinson Island ocean front condo (Fort Pierce, south of the inlet) we have two bedrooms, two baths, and a private lanai. The condo complex is ocean front, however we do not have an ocean view from our unit. It does have a nice waterfront view from our private lanai overlooking one of the many small lakes/ponds with a beautiful fountain in the complex. There is also a restaurant, tiki bar, executive golf course, tennis, easy access to over 1/2 mile of semi-private beach, several pools and fitness room on site at the complex.
Airbnb has been a nice way to meet new people and share our love and knowledge of the area with people, while allowing them the opportunity to travel and visit this area at an affordable rate.
We can be as "invisible" or present as guests may like (schedules permitting). While we genuinely love people, we don't feel a full-time roommate would be a good fit for us, so Airbnb allows us to share our wonderful home occasionally, yet afford us our own privacy the remainder of the time.
You no doubt noticed our mention of wheelchair accessibility. Dr. Keith is in a wheelchair from an accident at the beach in 1983. Some of Dr. Keith's other activities include being FL building contractor, and has been a college speech professor in CA. We also volunteer time to disabled SCUBA diving and boating programs.
If you have further questions please ask. We look forward to chatting with you!
