The space

This incredible little house was built in 1926 and has some charming details to boast. We have a big beautiful front porch that's perfect for relaxing and watching natures best as well as a steady flow of bike commuters. (Yes, there are rocking chairs and a porch swing). There is also a porch in the back of the house for more privacy or a cookout on our large grill. There's a chance we will ask that the "main rooms" of the house be reserved for our use only when we are home. But no concern, your space is complete! There is a "full" size Ikea bed, great light, t.v. with full cable, direct kitchen and laundry access, and a PRIVATE BATHROOM! (which is a brand new addition). And again, our awesome porch!

Our neighborhood has some incredible accommodations as well. We are walking/biking distance to King Street in Riverside which has blossomed in the last few years with shopping, GREAT affordable restaurants , and energetic eclectic people. Historic Avondale only a mile away, has more upscale shopping, and "date night" worthy dining. There is also a convenient liquor store. Trendy 5 Points is about 2 miles in the other direction and is great for lots of fun and people watching. There are several great restaurants, and shops here as well. There is also a new Roof Top bar and a very old theater that has some interesting cinema. Downtown is also only 2 miles away and includes the Times Union center, the Florida Theater, The Landing, Everbank Stadium, MOCA (Museum of Contemporary Art), and again endless trendy bars, restaurants, parks, and art. Our entire area is also dotted with fun friendly parks perfect for relaxing, games, and walking. It is also surrounded by the St. Johns River. You are welcome to borrow our bikes to take advantage of all of this entertainment. Additionally, Jax Beach is about a 25 minute car ride and offers a lot of comforts as well.

We are very fun, easy-going guys who are happy to make your stay as comfortable as possible. We are both teachers with strict schedules and weekends off so we will be available for recommendations or help with navigating the area. Our cat is also extremely friendly and will chat your ear off if you let him. Thanks for checking out our space!

Guest access

Partial House (front porch, backyard deck, kitchen, private bedroom/bathroom, laundry room). The living room, dining room, and den are accessible when we are not home.

Interaction with guests

We are both very friendly guys and would love to know what brings you to town. We can also help out a lot when it comes to you exploring the area. We are very familiar with all of the fun zones of Riverside/Avondale.
However, I mentioned above that we will need our alone time as well. We are both teachers so many nights we barley have the energy to stand up let alone converse any more.

Absolutely LOVELY home! These guys combine shameless geekiness with class in a way I've never seen. They have a huge front porch lit with a string of Christmas lights that's just ideal for sitting in one of the rocking chairs with a book, or cuddling up with your partner on the porch swing. The room itself is quite nice, on the small side, with a private bathroom well-stocked with amenities and probably 100 towels. Our hosts were delightfully warm and welcoming, just chatty enough to put us at ease, but not at all intrusive. They have a very polite cat. They have a lovely kitchen (which we didn't use during our stay). Communication and check-in were FLAWLESSLY SMOOTH. A++ The neighborhood is residential, very quiet (in fact I spent a few hours on the porch listening to cicadas and tree frogs sing). BONUS: their home is less than a mile from Maple Street Biscuits and you ABSOLUTELY MUST GO THERE, best biscuits I've EVER eaten. I believe Aric & Jonathan are a phenomenal example of what airbnb is all about -- super-cool people making strangers feel welcome in their amazing home. HIGHLY recommended. Would stay with them again in a second.

Jonathan and I love living in our little bungalow in Riverside, Jacksonville. We try to take it all in by going to events, shows, and restaurants. We're excited to become a part of airbnb so that we can share this little oasis with others and meet some interesting people along the way.
We are both teachers so we are pretty exhausted by the end of the work day, but we try to make up for it on the weekends.
