The space

Please note: I have two rooms. Look for Room #2 if this room is not available.

Guest room #1 has a queen bed with in-suite bathroom which was recently remodeled (hair dryer included). Breakfast is casual and available until 10am. I usually have coffee, tea, juice, cereal, toasts, fruit, yogurt and at times, homemade banana bread. I have an extra refrigerator for you to store items.
You are welcome to use the pool, outdoor shower or sit at the dock watching birds and fish play along the creek. If you are lucky you may even see a manatee swim past.
In the event we have cold weather, I have a fireplace and always a puzzle ready to piece together. I'd like you to feel comfortable in my home during your stay.
Explore the waterways of Stuart in a kayak from my backyard. I have two kayaks for guest use.
For the motor boaters, you can dock the boat behind my house and keep the trailer in the driveway. There is a fixed bridge with a decent clearance so if you are interested, I can give you more details. For the fishermen or divers out there, it's a 10-15 minute boat ride to the St. Lucie Inlet.
If the water is not your choice, borrow my bike or walk to town and visit one of our wonderful restaurants, shops, art shows or listen to free outdoor music along the water. Golfing is always an option here in Florida so bring your clubs, the county course is two miles.
I am located a mile from downtown Stuart and Martin Memorial Hospital and three miles to the beaches. If you have a family member in the hospital, the location is perfect for running back and forth.
West Palm Beach Airport is one hour, 2 hours to Orlando and 2 hours to Miami. 30 minutes to Met Spring training. Stuart is a quaint waterfront town, feel free to search for the City of Stuart's website to see what's happening downtown.

For the private flying enthusiasts, Witham Field is two miles and hosts the annual Stuart Air show the first weekend in November. Give me a call and I'll be happy to pick you up.
I hope you enjoy a clean well-behaved dog because Bella is part of the deal. Queen of the house and very friendly. She is a 12-year Labradoodle who will work her way into your heart.

This was the most amazing experience! Gail was so kind in helping me navigate through unknown territory. Her home is a dream and so comfortable in every way. Pictures and reviews can't even explain the experience. it felt like coming home to family! Bella is a love, there to greet you and make you comfortable. Can't wait to return! Thank you Gail for the best travel experience.

Absolutely exceeded expectations. Very clean accommodations, host went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable. Location was perfectly located to all attractions for the area, however you would not know it because of the great neighborhood which is very quiet. Bella is also very considerate and does not bark, jump or impede in any way during your visit - she stole our heart. The continental breakfast and coffee was delicious. Usually a website or picture will highlight the best part of the product or when it was in it's prime, however the Air BNB branded pictures portrayed exactly what we experienced. This was our first try at Air BNB and because of Gail and her accommodations we will always consider Air BNB before searching for lodging at the chains where you feel like just another number.

Our stay at Gail's place was very nice. The home is lovely. I only wish I'd brought my own pillows. I would go back

Home was possibly cleaner than my own; I'm a clean freak/Herman phobe. Very nice breakfast spread each morning; above and beyond. Each room has its own bath. Pool is a lovely comfortable, quiet setting. You do share common areas of the home with one other group, and owner.

Gail is a very considerate and generous host! Her dog Bella is sweet, gentle and keeps a watchful eye on what's going on. Being outside there was peaceful and we took many lovely dips in the pool. It is totally residential but the back yard is private and very nice!

Not only is this home gorgeous, Gail was very accommodating and friendly. She provided a nice continental breakfast each day with a bottomless coffee pot. Our room and the rest of the home felt like we were at a beautiful resort. Ready to another reason to go back and stay again.

Bedroom (and whole house) is very nicely furnished, very clean and comfortable. In addition to the bedroom and shower there was plenty of other usable space (i.e. dining room, living room, etc.).. Very pretty, serene backyard with views of pool and waterway. Quiet, family neighborhood, but close to everything in Stuart (much in walking distance, or a short drive). Gail is accommodating, interesting and personable. And Bella is a wonderful companion!

Gail User ProfileGail is a superhost.

I love to learn and continually try to keep challenged. As a Realtor, I stay busy following the housing market, managing my rental properties, over indulging my beautiful dog, and volunteering as a Registered Nurse.

Retired from the NJ Air National Guard after 24 years as a Navigator on a KC-135, I now spend time in both states with the majority of time in Florida. I enjoy most everything from puzzles and golf to cooking and traveling. I bake often so you can usually find a treat in the kitchen.

Come spend time in tropical Florida and it will be my goal to make your trip enjoyable and relaxing.
