Enjoy your cozy backyard cottage. Fully fenced in by a privacy fence, you'll have access to a lush and tropical backyard. Use the firepit, charcoal grill or lounge under the mango tree on the brick patio. Inside you'll have a fully equipped kitchen, comfy full size bed, 48'' flat screen smart TV, fast internet and record player/stereo. We have all you need for a comfortable stay for vacation or business travel right in the middle of the city with quick access to everything via uber/lyft or car.
This 334 square foot cottage is a converted wood shop. It is detached and in the back yard of our 1930 Craftsman Bungalow. There are two sets of gates that lead to the back yard, the 6.5 foot privacy fence will leave you feeling very secluded despite being in the heart of the city.
It is cozy and inviting and will cater to whatever your needs may be. The space is ideal for 1 or 2 people but can accommodate up to 4 if you don't mind close quarters.
You will have sole access to the cottage and everything in it. The kitchen is newly remodeled and well equipped for cooking full meals. We keep it stocked with coffee, tea, sugar, oil, vinegar, a full set of spices/herbs, oatmeal and fruit. You are welcome to any other food that is in the cabinets, fridge or freezer.
When you stay, the brick patio attached to the studio is all yours. There is a charcoal grill and a fire pit for you to enjoy. We have a large supply of firewood stacked in the driveway that you are welcome to use.
Interaction with guests
Most of the time we will be home if you need anything. We love taking camping/kayaking trips around Florida though, so sometimes we may not be around during your stay.

As a touring guitar technician I am constantly on the road. That means staying in hotels pretty regularly. When my wife (Elaina) and I travel together we bypass the pricey, uncomfortable hotels and prefer to use Airbnb. While we love to see different cities, we really love to get away and spend our time in nature. Elaina and I are new to hosting with Airbnb, but are excited to provide a comfortable, well-equipped space. While I may not always be available due to my travel schedule, Elaina is just a phone call away should you have any inconveniences during your stay.
