This is a beautifully updated 800 square foot, 1950's Murray Hill home and is close to everything Jacksonville. The home is ultra private as it is located at the end of a private cul-de-sac street with only three other homes sharing the street. This is a rarity for the area! The house also has a large backyard with a complete privacy fence. Private parking under a shaded carport with easy access to the home. Have I said private enough?
The home is very clean and has been meticulously updated for ultimate comfort and ease. There are hardwood floors throughout the home with tile in the kitchen. There are high-end ceiling fans in each room which are remote controlled. There is central heat and air throughout the home with added window A/C units to ensure you'll be freezing on hot summer days or whenever you please.
There are three flat-screen TV's with built-in Netflix and Hulu. One in the living room and one in each bedroom. All TV's are setup with Netflix and Hulu and other various streaming channels for your viewing pleasure. There is an iMac computer and desk/work area for all your computer needs with high speed wireless internet. If you are more PC friendly, please let me know in advance and I can swap out the iMac for a Windows based PC.
There are quite a few remotes in the home (fans, A/C, TV's, lighting) so please, do your best not to accidentally take one as a souvenir. We would love you for that!
Make yourself at home and enjoy everything that is available to you. All we ask is to please respect the surrounding neighbors and the house. Please respect our property and belongings. There are genuine artworks throughout the home along with other contemporary decor. Please make yourself at home and appreciate it as much as we have. Please no smoking and we will provide ashtrays for smoking on the front porch or in the backyard if necessary.
You will have full access to the home and everything it offers. There are yummy cans of soup should you get hungry and there is delicious varieties of coffee, tea and hot cocoa. There will be complimentary toiletries (shampoo, conditioner, soap, lotion, toothpaste, ect.) and of course fresh high-end towels and linens. If you get bored, we've added a few board games to the living room closet.
All in all, this truly is a home away from home and we have put much thought into this. We are much traveled ourselves and we have always taken mental note of what luxuries we would want when we travel. We want comfort, privacy and ease.. much of what you will get here!

My Interaction with guests is highly non-intrusive (you will not see me), but I am available if needed and I am just a text or phone call away. I live in Orange Park roughly 30 minutes from the home.
Please note: This is a new listing, yes, and we are learning the ropes of bnb. Everything is a learning curve. We have gone above and beyond with furnishing this home so if we have forgotten something, please let us know and we will do our very best to accommodate any requests!
The home can sleep up to five guests with a fifth guest sleeping on the living room couch. There is no third bed (just the couch) but extra blankets and pillows are available should they be needed.
Dogs are welcome here but please ask first. There will be a non-refundable fee of $45.00 per stay or per week and this is per dog.
The home is equipped with a soft-monitored security system and with 24-hour recorded exterior cameras that you may view via the living room television by choosing the "Video Camera" input at the home menu. This will not interfere in anyway whatsoever with your stay or privacy. Just please take note that should you decide to sunbathe in your birthday suit in the backyard that it will be recorded.
The lock code for the front door and laundry room door will be a four digit code of your choice which should be easier to remember. This will be your code for the duration of your stay unless for some unseen reason you would need us to change it for you.Get the full listing »
