Eddy and I welcome you in our century old historical home in Springfield, Jacksonville.
This listing is for our sunroom, which is an amazing room with lots of sunlight, a private entrance and it's right next to the downstairs bathroom and kitchen. This is the most private, peaceful and relaxing room in our house. The bed is made of a latex memory foam. It is a firm mattress with a soft top on it. There is no closet in this room. The 2 bathrooms in the house are to be shared with hosts and other guests. No private bathrooms (sorry), but the downstair bathroom next to the sunroom is rarely used. There's wireless internet throughout the house.
We have 2 small friendly dogs, Sanchez & Rico, who love company! Rico is a barker! He welcomes you in the house as well as barks when dogs pass by outside. This can be a problem for people who like to sleep in. But in the sunroom, you shouldn't hear him. We also foster cats from time to time.
A message with your intentions for your stay is greatly appreciated. We will not book 1 or 2-night request months in advance. This blocks our calendar and we can't receive longterm guests. 1 to 2 weeks before is great!
The house is over 100 years old, it can be drafty in the winter months (68-70), but we make sure guests are comfortable. Same goes in the summer, it can be hot for some people. We keep the central air at 80f (27c). The Sunroom has it's own a/c unit. You have control of it.

Interaction with our guests varies depending on each guests and on our schedule. We want our guests to have the best experience, so we adapt to their needs. However, we enjoy getting to know our guests.

We often host dinners and parties at our house. We will let you know if a dinner is planned during your stay. Guests are always welcomed to join.
Don't let the pets out! Please, keep the front door closed as you bring luggage in and out.
No smoking allowed!! This also includes: Marijuana, e-cigarettes... Use the porch. Opening windows in your room is still considered smoking inside. Go outside.
Extra guests have to be approved by us. If you would like to bring a friend home, please ask. That's just simple courtesy.
We prefer guests don't keep food in their rooms as it attracts bugs. None open food items are ok. Use the trash can in the kitchen to disposed of food and takeout containers.
Obvious, but must be mentioned:
Please, be respectful of our space, animals and other guests. This means: try to be quiet when people are sleeping. Pick-up after yourself in common areas. Please, body hygiene is important, bathe regularly and use deodorant. Be nice to our animals.
