The SpaceThis is a cozy 2 bedroom, 1 bath house that can comfortably accommodate up to four people. The kitchen is stocked with cookware and dishes and the bathroom has the basic amenities. We have a privacy-fenced backyard and security-fenced front. Pet-friendly: $150 pet fee applied manually because the website doesn't automate that, yet, so please let me know if you're bringing your pet so I can apply the fee. Guests that book three weeks or more can receive bi-weekly cleaning, which is included in the listed price. Guest AccessYou'll have full use of the house, the kitchen is fully equipped, including dishwasher, cookware, dishes, and some condiments, cooking oil, etc., bathroom with soap, shampoo, hair dryer, iron with ironing board, towels, and washcloths, desk, queen-size bed, stereo, 49" TV in the living room and a smaller one in the bedroom w/cable, and shares a washer, dryer, 2 bikes, privacy-fenced back yard, security-fenced front yard, fire pit, and patio area with guest(s) that may or may not be staying in the studio apartment. Interaction with GuestsI'm not usually on the property, but I stop in fairly regularly when I'm in town, as I keep my truck and trailer there for my tree service. I'm usually reachable by phone for questions or tips. Just leave a message if I don't answer and I'll get back to you ASAP.
We strongly recommend setting your AIRBNB ACCOUNT to send you a text, (or at the very least, an e-mail), when you receive messages on the website. We will probably not be around to help you check in, so this line of communication can be vital, not only to get you the door code, but also in case any other issues come up. This is especially true for our international guests. I don't have an international calling plan, so if I miss an international call, I can not call the number back. However, when I get your voicemail, I can respond via the website. The NeighborhoodThis house is on the outskirts of the quaint and historic Eau Gallie Art District, home to many art outlets, the Foosaner Art Museum, the Rossetter House Museum, other historic buildings, a really nice library with computers and wi-fi overlooking the scenic river and free public fishing pier, a restaurant/tiki bar next to the pier that has good food and live music daily, other restaurants, shops, and the Intracoastal Brewery, all within a few blocks walking distance. There's a Saturday farmer's market on Highland Av. near Eau Gallie Blvd., a community indoor basketball court, and several parks and recreation areas within walking distance. There is a nice dog beach only two miles away, as well. Getting AroundThere are bus stops within a block of the house. Just about anything you could need is within walking distance. Other Things to NoteI'm in the process of revamping the yard into a permaculture paradise, so please excuse the incompleteness of it as we progress toward this goal.
We make every effort to offer an extraordinary value to our guests. Part of doing so is accounting for cost differentials. Not to over-state the obvious, but the cleaning fee only pays for a certain amount of cleaning time. If, upon your departure, it takes more time to return the unit to its original condition, (when you checked in), than the cleaning fee allows, or if you take or permanently stain towels or washcloths, (or anything else), with make-up, etc., additional fees will apply.
