My home features a unique, luxurious garden with pathways and water features that will make you feel like you are in a tropical oasis, rather than in a city. You can enjoy the sunrise on the front porch and unwind in the evening while watching the sunset on the back patio or in the garden hot tub .
This listing is for 1 bdrm as well as access to the rest of the house and garden. Basically you are renting the entire house, you only share the house with me. See the family suite for more rooms.
*Please read all of the following before booking.
This is my home and NOT a hotel. Please take that into consideration before booking.
I ask that you respect my home, it’s furnishings and my belongings.
You will have access to the house and garden. My bedroom and the hall closet are the only areas that are off limits.
This site is where you reserve the master bdrm for up to 2 people. If you plan to bring an infant under 2 then please request the travel bed at booking. There will be a $10 charge for infant. If the child sleeps in the bed with you be aware that there will be a $30 cleaning charge for any stains or damages to the bed linens or bed.

Fresh towels and Linens
Q tips & Cotton Swabs
Shampoo, Conditioner & Body Wash
I attempt to provide the little touches to make your stay comfortable. Please use what you need while here and then leave the rest for the next guest. In this way I am able to keep my room price down and pass that savings on to you.
I have been hosting for almost a year. I have had an assortment of people stay with me. I have had visitors from all over the world which I find exciting.
If you prefer to keep to yourself, no problem. This is your time away from the everyday life. You are welcome to relax in the garden, watch the big screen tv or visit the surrounding towns. There have been some guests that I have literally said hello and goodbye to and that was it.

Please let me know you are bringing an infant ($10) and make your request for these items when booking.
While I do allow children and infants please be aware that my home is not child proof. I DO NOT have outlet covers, corner guards, or cabinet latches. I do have tile floors and several glass end tables. Also be aware that my garden is filled with many plants, trees, bugs and other animals.

All I ask is that you clean up after yourself.

Please pull all the way up to the welcome sign so that I may back out in the mornings. If you are not comfortable with this then you are welcome to park in front of my house.
DESCRIPTION OF GARDEN: My garden is a unique place. It isn't like any garden you will find in most residential homes. The prior owners were founding members of the Port Saint Lucie Botanical Gardens. They brought their passion for gardening into their own garden. You cannot see the garden from the front of the house, therefore many people are surprised with what they find when they step out on the back patio.
Be aware that there are numerous plants and wild animals in my yard. You are responsible for your safety in the garden as well as any children that may be with you.
OUTDOOR GRILL AND FIREPIT: You are welcome to use my grill and firepit. There will be a charge of $10 for each use to cover the firewood (and cleaning of pit) or propane in grill. You are responsible for cleaning the grill and outdoor kitchen. There will be a $25 charge IF the grill or outdoor kitchen are left uncleaned. You are responsible for your own safety and the safety of your family when using any of these items.
You will need to provide your own paper plates, plastic ware, plastic cups and napkins. Indoor dishes are not to be used outside. See me for grill dishes.
HOT TUB: I have recently installed a hot tub in the garden.
Each person uses the spa at their own risk
No bubble bath, bath salts or soap in the spa
No food is allowed in or around spa.
No children under 12 are allowed in the spa.
Do not change the thermostat on the spa.
No glass in or around spa.

Towels are on the bench in the screen room
CHECK-IN: 3:00 to 11:00pm
Please let me know the approximate time you'd like to check in. If you are planning on arriving after 11:00 pm please consult with me first before booking.
CHECK-OUT: 11:00 am
Please do not plan on staying later unless you have spoken with me and made prior arrangements at booking. I clean and turn over each room by myself therefore I need plenty of time to complete this before my next guest arrives.
No more than 2 guests (& 1 infant) may stay in this room. Only the number of registered guests may stay in this house.
If you do not register all guests then those who are not registered will be asked to leave.
Absolutely no bringing other people / friends (who are not part of booking) to the house ... Not even to "hangout for a little". If other individuals are brought in to visit there will be a $20 charge for each unplanned individual to cover the extra cost of water, electricity and cleaning. Please respect my home and don't show up with a stranger on my doorstep.
If you desire to have a small gathering of no more than 12 people please consult with me about special pricing and catering.
OTHER GUESTS: I only rent out to one set of guests at a time. Therefore the only person you will be sharing the house with is me. On occasion I may have my 2 grandchildren at the home with me briefly.
QUIET HOURS: I want to be respectful of everyone's sleeping schedule. Therefore I ask that you be considerate of noise after 12:oo am (midnight). You may come and go as you please, but I ask that you do so with the least amount of confusion and noise as possible.
In order to be considerate of my neighbors the garden, the patio, the hot tub and the front porch are closed after 11:00pm.
ABSOLUTELY NO SMOKING/ VAPING IN THE HOUSE. If you need to smoke you may do so outside but please dispose of any butts in the garbage not the yard.
If it is discovered that you are smoking in the bedroom you will be asked to leave.
As a result of guests opening windows in order to smoke in the room I now ask that the windows are NOT OPENED.
Also do not cover the smoke alarm with a plastic bag or towel. This is putting other peoples lives at risk. I have already been through a house fire and do not desire to go through it again.
LAUNDRY: You are welcome to use my washer and dryer for small amounts of laundry (3 loads or less). Complimentary laundry soap is provided.
Please be sure to turn off T.V., all lights and fan when you plan on leaving for any length of time.
A night light is provided should you desire to have a light on when you return back to your room.
Be sure to close and lock the front and back door upon leaving the house or coming in for the evening. Unfortunately I have had guests come and go after midnight and not lock the door. For your safety as well as mine please be sure doors are locked at night or upon leaving. Front door is locked simply by pressing the lock button.
Please DO NOT eat on the bed. I have had numerous duvet covers and pillowcases ruined due to guests eating on the bed and spilling food. If a duvet cover or sheets are stained I will do my best to remove the stains in order to save you the damage charge of $30.
Do not change the thermostat.
No recreational drugs
Parents must watch children at all times. Children under 18 years of age MAY NOT be left in the house alone.
Parents take full responsibility for their children’s safety in the garden and hot tub.
A beach blanket, beach towels, beach umbrella and 2 beach chairs are also part of the property and are available for you to use while you are here.
Thank you for showing the courtesy of taking the time to read this list. I greatly appreciate it.
This is a quiet, walk-able neighborhood even though we are in the city. It is close to the Turnpike, and US1 and a short drive to I95 which makes it convenient for commuting and shopping.
