2 BR
1 Bath
Sleeps 4

An Ideal Vacation Starts Here!

This beautifully renovated cottage retreat is just off palm tree lined McGregor, just minutes to the Edison Ford Estate and historic downtown. Enjoy cruising on our bikes as you explore the River District. River sunsets are just a 5-minute walk to the end of the street. Nearby, find golf, a multitude of dining options, and shopping.

Artful Abode is a space with curated eclectic art and a large private screening room for movie lovers on the 75" FIRE TV.

Our home is perfect for retired couples, corporate stays, seasonal guests, best friend vacations, small families, and business travelers. Two separate bedrooms and three beds make sleeping four adults easy.


We believe in great art, stimulating conversation, and a good cocktail. To this end, our living room is set up for flow. You’ll note a simply divine, luxurious, and artistic Mid-Century Modern blue velvet sofa which serves as the anchor for the room. Twin muted mustard-toned chairs face this dynamic velvet sofa, and a tri-level wood table allows for beverage breaks. An artistic corner pyramid table blends the tones which are echoed in the rug. A cell phone charging outlet is conveniently located here.


While some guests select to converse in the living room, others may choose to slide the barn door and enter what those who enjoy a film on the big screen would call a “screening room”. Here, a 75” flat screen FIRE TV allows you to stream your favorite flicks and shows as you sink into our oversized sectional seating six.


Even the table is art. A beautiful smoothed “live edge” table with a bench for two and chairs for four adjoins the formal living room.


Our white and bright kitchen was designed with the consultation of a true “kitchen-ista”. The must haves of a spice rack drawer; lazy Susan corner cabinets; lower cabinets with shelves that pull out (no reaching and searching for pots and pans!); a tall cabinet for wine and spirits; soft-close drawers; great knives; all brand-new matching Samsung appliances were all on the list.


Our queen room serves as a perfect master and seems to whisper, “Sleep happens here.” Situated at the back corner of the home, this room invites you to calm with a soothing color palette of soft whites and light grey. A variety of pillow types are found here because we know how important it is to have the "right" pillow. A remote-controlled ceiling fan soothes sleepers with a light breeze. Twin mid-century modern nightstands sport lamps with charging ports and Smart TV with streaming channels.


Our guest room features two double beds - each with a different type of new mattress because we all sleep differently. This light and airy room sports a soothing palette to aid in relaxation. Window blinds are covered with sheer drapery; the floor between the beds has a gorgeous rug — the influence behind the color palette. For your comfort and convenience: A remote controlled ceiling fan keeps a cool breeze going; a variety of pillow types are available; a charging station is built into the nightstand and Smart TV with streaming channels.


Our bathroom is a complete remodel and the choices made here were with the thought of ease. The bathroom floor is a textured hexagon tile that blends seamlessly into the shower, i.e., there is not a lip on the floor. The shower head allows for a soothing rain fall to envelope you and the detachable shower wand makes it easy to rinse off. Twin towel hooks allow for simple draping of towels; the wide basin sink is perfect for washing. Bath products such as body wash, shampoo are included.


Full-sized and stacked, the Samsung SMART washer and dryer are in our “mudroom” area, just off the kitchen. A full cycle of wash and dry can be done in under 50 minutes!


Sit under the oversized umbrella and enjoy great conversation with your family on the paver and rock patio - right outside the French Doors! An oversized fenced backyard with mature trees, passion fruit vines, and a storage shed (bikes).


We aim to keep our home as allergy free as possible. This means no carpets or heavy drapery. No smoking, vaping, or pets. We take trash out each time we leave the home, and remove all trash daily to avoid welcoming critters. This is our home, our roots. It is where we are from. Our family literally lives within minutes, (two streets over!) and we visit often. We’ve created a space that works for us and to share with others who will appreciate it: Fabulous artwork on white walls, a coordinating color palette and quiet space; a fabulous kitchen, and huge TV, bedroom TV's and a variety of books. Each room has a cell phone charging outlet and ceiling fan. All the necessities are here.


Exterior security cameras on premises monitor all entry areas.

This home is not “child-safe” in that there are no outlet protections or locks on cabinets, and there is a step down into the screening room. Fine art, vintage furniture pieces, and an expensive sofa in the living room. Mature children are welcome;

Frequently Asked Questions

Important note to Airbnb travel guests about the cleaning/housekeeping fee: 
This is a combination of the actual cleaning/housekeeping fee, modest booking fee, and state & local taxes, and not the cleaning fee exclusively.
Our cleaning/housekeeping fees vary based on size of property, number of bedrooms & bathrooms, pool patio homes, garages, etc. They typically range between $125-$325 based on the aforementioned.

The booking fee is $89. 
Airbnb does not currently allow hosts to itemize these fees on their site which is why we'd like to explain what otherwise appears to be an excessive cleaning fee expense. 
Thank You,
