Private entrance and private fully fenced yard.

Pets allowed by pre-approval only and require an additional pet cleaning fee, please message us with details about your pet first.
World famous Siesta Key Beach is 5.8 miles away, and Lido Key Beach is 8.5 miles away, and its just a 4 mile bike ride to Crescent Beach on Siesta Key.
From your private parking space at the front of the yard, you'll follow the paver walkway past the tasty Starfruit tree and Jamaican Cherry tree (cotton candy tasting berries), and past the divine smelling Jasmine bush, to your gate entrance (the mermaid) into your fully fenced PRIVATE YARD. The yard is landscaped with tropical plants like plumeria & hibiscus. There is some grass but the yard is shaded by our mature oak trees so the grass is a bit patchy. There is a motion activated light outside to help you find your way to the door after dark. From there you will find your private entrance into a large bedroom with an attached full bathroom. For your use are 2 bicycles, 2 beach chairs, and a cooler on wheels.
The BEDROOM has a Queen sized bed, with a memory foam mattress (new in 2021, and not used until 2022), shredded foam pillows (that have a zipper and are adjustable!) and cotton sheets. There is also a white leather sofa with electric full recline, and a small dresser. 43" non-smart tv, with Roku Ultra (you can use our Netflix and Disney Plus guest profiles to stream). The floors throughout the whole space are stained concrete, there is a ceiling fan, and a full sized refrigerator & freezer. There is a desk with a chair, that also doubles as a table (as well as a stool if you need additional seating). The room is hard wired with ethernet cables only (one for the roku, one for the desk, and one for the bed) and we have very fast internet speeds, but please note the room does NOT have WIFI (one of our children is very sensitive to WIFI so we cannot have it on our property).
The closet houses a KITCHENETTE bar complete with a small toaster oven, microwave, single electric burner, electric kettle and stainless steel pour over coffee filter. We have included sea salt, black pepper and coconut oil for your use. There is also a clothes bar with plenty of hangers, a luggage stand, and laundry basket.
The BATHROOM has a newer shower/tub combo with a deep soaking tub, recirculating hot water, and a bidet on the toilet. The spacious vanity is topped with a long granite counter, and has a magnifying mirror on an expandable arm. Included is Dr Bronner's unscented soap in a foaming pump, cotton bath towels, hand towels & wash cloths, beach towels and a hair dryer. We have well water so there is no chlorine in our water (the water is softened with a whole house water softener, and filtered to remove solids). There is a dehumidifier in the bathroom that must remain running during your stay, please do not turn it off.
This air conditioning in this room is controlled by the main house. During the hot times of the year we keep it set cold, and that room is the coldest room in the house by far. However if it is still too hot for you let us know and we can put a window air conditioner in the window for your use during your stay. It is much more likely that you will be cold, and if that is the case you can either close the air conditioning vents as much as needed, or you can run the space heater. *Oscillating floor fan available upon request.
Internet, electricity, etc... cannot be guaranteed if there is a storm or a problem with the provider (but it is extremely rare that we lose service).
You will be in what used to be the master bedroom and bathroom of the main house. It has a lock out so it is not accessible from the rest of the house, and the walls between your room and the rest of the house have double insulation in them. The interior door is a solid wood door, and there is a sound dampening blanket hanging on the main house side of the door. We have an outside cat who we have adopted (he was feral, but is now extremely friendly with all people) and he is great at climbing fences, so he may visit your yard looking for love. We also have 5 chickens in our part of the backyard. On our side of the house we are 2 self employed adults, and 3 kids (ages 10-18) that are homeschooled, and 2 house bunnies.
Washer & Dryer: In our garage we have a washer and dryer you are welcome to use once a week, if you give us 24 hours notice (we are a family of 5 with 2 teenagers so we use it frequently). You are welcome to use our unscented Ecover laundry soap, but please note we do not use fabric softener or dryer sheets, and would appreciate if it you don't either.
Other things to note
While we are new to Airbnb, we are not new to customer service. You can check out the reviews for the businesses we own, which will give you a sense of our integrity. Bryan owns All New Again in Sarasota, and has glowing reviews left my customers on g**gle. Jennifer owns Island Deodorant, and you can find her third party verified reviews at the top of her website by doing an internet search on the business name.
For stays longer than a week, we are happy to bring you clean bedding and towels once a week in exchange for your dirties.
We use only unscented cleaners in the airbnb, so we respectfully request that you do not spray fragrance or sunscreen in the room.
We have an extra Austin Air Purifier you are welcome to use in the airbnb (with an additional deposit collected) upon request.
We disinfect using hypochlorous acid (HOCl).
We are a mostly chemical free property (although we do use bug spray strategically when necessary, since this is Florida), and occasionally we do use essential oils and/or fragrance for our business in our part of the house (if you are sensitive let us know and we will not schedule any of those jobs while you are staying here). We do not use pesticides or chemical fertilizers on the yard or plants.
January 2022 our place was rebuilt from a costly and extensive mold remediation. The duct work is new, and we installed a UV light and a Reme Halo In-Duct Air Purifier (which makes ionized hydrogen peroxide in the air conditioner so it gets pumped through the ducts every time the A/C comes on and you can faintly smell it at times).
**PETS: PETS ALLOWED BY PRE-APPROVAL ONLY and REQUIRE AN ADDITIONAL PET CLEANING FEE. You must message us with details about your pet and be approved, and pay the pet cleaning fee, before you can arrive with your pet**Show all description
