Terrific first Airbnb experience. David and Laura were friendly and welcoming. The cottage was beautiful and the overall atmosphere was very relaxing. Would highly recommend.

It's a lovely oasis and escape from the hustle and bustle of every day life. The beautiful pool with hot tub and waterfall makes for a tranquil space. The day bed swing and porch, amidst the amazing landscaping, is perfect for unwinding. The cottage is well appointed with everything you could need. It was truly a special gem and the next time we come back to Jacksonville, we would love to stay here again.

We traveled to Jacksonville FL for a weekend before we left on a cruise and I enjoyed this little cottage and area just as much as our cruise! This little cottage was a gem! We had a fabulous time here. It's just as cute in person as it is in the photographs. David and Laura were the best host! Everything we needed was supplied (coffee and beer included). The cottage was clean and well maintained. I felt completely at home and comfortable, We loved the ability to walk to Uptown Bar and Grill. It was a very short ride to 5 points (more food and night life) our uber was 7$ you can't beat that! There was an abundance of choices of things to do and places to eat. We will definitely stay again!

My husband and I are avid Travelers. My husband is British. We met in Fiji when I was in the Peace Corp and he was working for a British Aid Agency . We have two teenagers and love our neighborhood and our life in Springfield. We built our house 5 years ago and the Guest House 4 years ago. I am a retired Landscape Designer and my husband is a College Professor. Our guest house reflects my love of gardens and design. It was designed by a firm in Seattle in a simple, contemporary craftsman style . It has high ceilings and lots of light and is fronted by a pool and surrounded by a beautiful garden I designed myself.
