Private back yard entrance with cozy porch overlooking lush backyard and very large pool. Free street parking in front of our home. The space is meant for only guests and not a hang out for friends and others. If a guest/tenant chooses to invite their friend/relatives over it is their responsibility for the actions of their guests which were not approved to stay here as paying guests. Whatever the guests do, it is as if the tenant is doing it themselves making them liable, not us.
Completely remodeled by my husband as it was meant to be an in law suite for my father who passed away before he could live in this house. Actually, remodeled the entire main house as well adding decks and we did the landscaping. Unit has separate entrance in the back of house then, there is another door leading into the main house. Walls are super thick and people who have stayed with us have commented that you cannot even hear us and vice-versa. All new furniture and most appliances new. Very clean for guests. I go the extra mile making it spotless. We have built our own little cat sanctuary in the backyard and have some beautiful felines that like to lounge in the yard. Nice hammock to relax on too by cat house. All fully vaccinated and neutered or spayed. Yet, shy. Cat treats are in unit if you want to give as we have many people visit who also adore cats.
Guests can access pool. Also, other chairs and tables around the pool. Pool towels are located in your smaller of the two closets. Check out the cat house if you wish. We have a large grill on our end that guests can use as well. Please clean up all trash after using and put chairs back to where they once were.

Try to keep noise level down after 10 pm if outside due to our neighbors and this being a quiet neighborhood. Automatic lights will go on to light up your pathway back to the gate to enter The Palms. Have tried to keep cleaning fee down....but, it does costs from our end more as well due to extra laundry with bedding and time. We also pay taxes on the rates listed as part of the nightly charge just for guests to know. We do include coffee, teas, creamer, and sugar.
- After entering the gate with the sign marked The Palms, please close gate behind you. To the left is the suite. When leaving please leave key inside the unit. Thanks. Maximum people we can accept in the space is 3 people. No uninvited guests. This is not a party house. This is a quiet residential neighborhood and we like to keep it tranquil for our cats too.
Turn off any lights or appliances that are on when leaving the unit if you plan on being gone for more than 30 minutes. The AC/ heater is very powerful and will cool room down within 10 minutes after you return. Has a bright light on it which we covered with a little flap to block out extra light for guests when trying to sleep.
We ask guests to respect our cats that live outside and have their own cat house, yet they will wander in the yard. They are fully vaccinated and spayed or neutered. Will leave treats inside The Palms if you would like to try to interact with some. They are shy due to being dumped by bad pet owners but now have a safe and peaceful environment to live.
- If you are a smoker, please do so ONLY on your back porch and put ashes in the ash tray on table then empty into garbage can on porch.
- Please treat our home as yours, and be respectful to neighbors. We live in a safe and well established neighborhood on a dead end street with The St. John's River and park at the end of the street. Please keep noise level down after 10 pm and only use pool until 10 pm.
- ONLY park in front of the main house without blocking the driveway. Enough street parking for two cars in front of home. But, please stay about 5 feet from mailbox so postal carrier can access box.
-If you take good care of your pet and explain the pet to us , we will definitely consider taking them on too. It will be an additional 25 dollars for the pet.
- We can accept either a child or another person but futon is really best for someone 5'8 or under. And, it is in the same room as where queen size bed is located. Bookshelf is used as the divider. We do not have a crib.
** Also, we can be very flexible with times for check in and check out as long as our guests communicate their info with us via text or in person.
I am originally from Brooklyn, New York and the Connecticut area and my husband is from Hungary. We have lived most of our life on the west coast from Oregon, Seattle, to the Bay area. The area we live in is called Mandarin and it is filled with many great restaurants, stores, and parks within one mile from our home. I am a licensed psychotherapist. We both are avid animal lovers. We have an adorable Boston Terrier, Coco, and many indoor cats in the main house. I am extremely clean and keep the property this way- including the house we built for the rescued stray cats. We love meeting new people especially since we have lived in many places in this country. We love to cook, watch documentaries, love comedy, and listening to music. We used to kayak quite a bit too. My husband and I fix and neuter many colonies of feral cats in the Jacksonville area. He also has built homes for them (not the same size as our 220 square foot one)! We also feed multiple colonies every other day and this suite helps us continuing doing what we do. Have done a lot of volunteer work with teenagers and elderly on the west coast. Also, volunteered for three years with Crisis Support Services of Alameda County in Oakland, California helping those of all ages suffering from depression and other mental conditions and conducted suicidal assessments.
We try to give guests as much privacy as possible. I am easily available through a text message and will do my best to help you with whatever you may need. We have been known to be great hosts for friends at many gatherings and would like to treat our guests the same way.
My life motto is based on many quotes by geniuses such as Albert Einstein: "The world is not dangerous because of those who do harm but because of those who look at it without DOING ANYTHING."
