Welcome to your surf bungalow!
This private entrance, two-room bungalow is less than a 10 minute walk to the beach. Decorated with a vintage beach style, this is the perfect place to relax after a day in the sun. Additionally, it's equipped with an outdoor shower, towels, bikes and beach chairs — all you'll need to bring is a suit!

The room is a completely private mother-in-law suite located right between the beach bars at Neptune and the Pier. It's also a short walk to many great restaurants.

The space
The bungalow is a comfortable, eclectic, bohemian space with a nod toward the mid-century modern roots of the house. It is separated by a locked door to the other half of the house where my husband and I live. Although it can be accessed completely privately, guests may hear us or our dogs from time to time. It features basic amenities, such as a mini-fridge, microwave, toaster, coffee maker and a collapsible desk for eating or working.

Because the house is older, we have priced the space accordingly. Please be aware that the structure is not new and shows some wear and tear of use over time.

The space has one bedroom and one room that can either be another bedroom or a common space if more than two guests will be staying. In the event of three or more guests, please advise me and I'll make the beds for additional sleeping arrangments. While this space can accommodate four adults, guests should know that space is small with a limited hot water heater. LONG TERM STAYS WITH 3+ GUESTS ARE NOT ADVISED.


Amenities include:
-Beach chairs
-Two Beach cruisers
-Sunscreen, beach bag, cooler, beach towels
-One ocean kayak w/paddles
-Two boogie boards
-One learner surfboard (long)
-One skimboard
-One beach umbrella
-One beach buggy for toting supplies to the beach

Guests will be responsible for returning items. A bike lock will be provided and must be used. If bikes or equipment goes missing during a stay, the guest will be responsible for replacing the item. ITEMS ARE NOT GUARANTEED, THEY ARE COMPLIMENTARY. If an item is damaged or broken by the guest prior to your stay I will try to replace the item ASAP but can't guarantee its availability for this reason. If you need an item during your stay, please let me know beforehand. I try to keep items stocked but cannot rush out on short notice as I also work full time.

For all guests who have visited the beach an outdoor shower is mandatory before entering the suite. The drains are old and the shower clogs easily! Please be sure to remove any sandy clothing before entering!

Wifi is available as well as Netflix.

Importantly, this is a FRIENDLY household. That means LGBQ, all races, ages and nationalities. EVERYONE is welcome, NO discrimination!

That even goes for pets. :) If you have a friendly animal, they are welcome here PENDING A PET FEE. We have the pet fee on a graded scale as to make it more and less expensive for smaller dogs and length of stay. While most places charge $100 flat, we believe it's more fair for dog owners like ourselves to pay less and know that boarding is expensive! We have a standard $10 dollar fee that covers one dog for one night that will automatically be charged. If you're staying longer please know we may ask for your dogs size and determine a higher fee to be paid the day of arrival. This is to keep prices low for all dog owners!


We have a fenced backyard and dogs are encouraged to use it. That said, we do have two dogs ourselves so anyone with an allergy or otherwise is warned against staying. Because our dogs use the backyard as well we can only accept animals that get along with other dogs and have no history of aggressive behavior or separation anxiety.

*If your dog barks incessantly while you're away you will be asked to board them!

Additionally, at times our dogs may bark and may be heard through the walls, especially during daytime hours.

***THE ENTRANCE IS LOCATED TO THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE HOUSE. This means you will have to walk through the yard to get to the door. While we have solar lights, they won't turn on if it's been cloudy all day. If you have a hard time seeing or need a paved path PLEASE DO NOT BOOK****

Lastly, we want your stay to be awesome! Any questions or issues with the suite are encouraged to be directly addressed. We are only a room away so if anything is amiss feel free to message me!

Where you’ll be

Jacksonville Beach, Florida, United States

The neighborhood is tucked away on a low traffic side road. It sits right behind Mellow Mushroom and a few other great restaurants and bars that are less than a five-minute walk. We welcome anyone new to the area to ask for recommendations! I am a local journalist that covers North Florida so I am happy to point out all that Jacksonville has to offer!

I am a writer/journalist that loves to travel. Most days I work from home with two employees I rescued, Mac and Chachi.

Outside of my two dogs, I spend my time with my husband, Joe. We are usually either at the beach or puttin' around town on our scooter. My husband and I love going new places, meeting new people and experiencing new cultures.

During your stay

I live within the home and work part-time from home. While my hours vary, I should be very available to help or answer questions. We believe in privacy though so will not intrude or knock on the door.
