The SpaceYour large master bedroom is approximately 175 square foot, including your own private bathroom, full closet, and table. Behind the house is the Intercoastal Waterway. The sunset over the ICW is amazing...great fishing and plenty of birds. Occasionally, we have seen manatees and bald eagles right there!
On the water: There is a deep water access and boat ramp for boats, kayaks, SUPs, right through our backyard! Feel free to bring your boat if you have one!! We have spectacular photography opportunities for capturing Florida wildlife and radiant sunsets...just steps from our back door! Enjoy the pool, lanai, Florida room and full kitchen access. We also have a washer and dryer on site.
Make yourself comfortable and enjoy the best of Florida. We have a kayak, surfboard, fishing pole, and bikes available. *We can also give you surf lessons for a minimal donation. Let me know what you like to do, and I'll point you in the right direction for great adventure, wildlife, and restaurants. If you want to shop at Aqua East, just let me know and I'll loan you my discount card. Guest AccessWe love the internet and provide free high speed wireless internet for guests.
We do not have television and prefer to cater to the outdoor enthusiast and nature lover. Why watch TV and commercials when you could be watching a Great Blue Heron or a Bald Eagle hunt fish beneath a glorious sunset?? OUR POOL WAS DAMAGED DURING HURRICANE MATTHEW...I HAVE LOWERED THE PRICE OF THE ROOM BC OF THIS:( I will update this as soon as repairs are made and the backyard is back in service for guests. It's too cold to swim now, anyway, but we really miss our pool and it's a bummer that our guests can't play there for now. However, the house is in great shape and everything else is cherry:) Interaction with GuestsWe are happy to give you as much private time as you like. We enjoy hosting a variety of people and we are ready to accommodate your needs. If we are not at home, we will provide you with contact information so you are always able to reach us. Occasionally, we have our neighbors over for BBQ or bon fire and watch the sunset. Just let us know if you'd like to come join us. The more, the merrier! The NeighborhoodOur neighborhood is very quiet, safe, and community oriented. There are only 6 homes on our cul-de-sac, so neighbors know each other very well. Please respect the fact that this is a family neighborhood. Do not venture onto the neighbor's property or in any way cause a neighbor to become upset. We give a high level of respect and friendship to our neighbors. If one of them becomes upset with or has a complaint against a guest, that guest may be asked to leave immediately/escorted off property. We are very laid back and want everyone to enjoy themselves, but we will not put up with anyone who is disrespectful, belligerent, or a nuisance to our home and community.
PICTURES: I have posted pictures of nearby parks and areas Getting AroundWe are right off A1A, just minutes from the beach, shops, restaurants, and other activities. Just ask and we will be happy to point you in the right direction. We also have bikes, kayaks, and surfboards to rent. Hanna Park is VERY close and offers miles and miles of biking/hiking trails, great surf, spectacular fishing/birding, and even has a fresh water lake. Mayport Village is just down the road, where you can enjoy fresh caught seafood right off the boat. Downtown Jax is an easy 20 minute commute, but seems a world away. Mayport Naval Base is about 5 minutes away (if you drive slow). Hanna Park is by far the nicest beach and is less than 5 minutes away and if you want to check out the tourist districts, just drive 8-10 minutes to Atlantic Beach, Neptune Beach, or Jacksonville Beach. I have posted several pictures of nearby parks and scenic areas.
