Lovingly restored one bedroom apartment. Original floors and windows give it old Florida charm. Deck looks over garden with fruit trees, flowers and four happy chickens. Located on quiet street. Short walk to vibrant, historic Downtown Melbourne.
Our home with apartments was built in 1926 and has an old Florida feel. There have been many house projects in the 21 years we've lived here, but we have kept as much of the original as possible. We've removed past "improvements" like panelling, wall-to-wall carpeting and aluminum siding.
Our home was built as a triplex. We are only the third owners, but there have been many renters in the home's two upstairs apartments. According to one sensitive tenant, a friendly ghost named Sally wanders here.

Interaktion mit Gästen

Weitere wichtige Infos
There is a second upstairs apartment with cats. When you go on the shared deck there is a good chance that a cat will come and say hello. The apartment is cat-free, and we have never had anyone who is allergic to cats have a problem.
No smoking, even on the deck. No pets. Please keep noise down at night. Please don't drag furniture on wood floors. Never, never pour Drano down our old, fragile plumbing. If there's a clog, we'll fix it.
My family had a great experience staying in Airbnb apartments while traveling last summer, so we've decided to turn convert our upstairs apartment, which had previously been rented out long-term, into an Airbnb apartment. It has worked out well, so we have just added a cottage, also on our property, that was built several years ago for an older parent.
We really enjoy meeting guests and introducing them to our part of the world. We have lived downstairs for 21 years and have acquired lots of local knowledge that we are happy to share. We love the outdoors - gardening, sailing, the beach and anywhere with great natural beauty. I am the author of Go Outside and Play: Why Kids Don't and Why They Should. There's a copy in the apartment and the cottage.
