This place has all the modern amenities you could need and cozy charm at no added cost! Prime location in a quiet neighborhood, a short walk or 5 minute drive to the Intercoastal Waterway and 2 mile drive to the nearest beach access and 1.9 miles to ride a bike or walk over the north side of the Seabreeze bridge to the the beach.

We provide bottled water, coffee, tea, sugar and powdered creamer. We also provide an iron and small ironing board.

Guest access

The space does not share any common walls with our living quarters, which affords you lots of privacy.
There is a private deck with table and 2 chairs where you could have your meals or morning coffee. There also is a fire pit for cool nights.
There is off street parking on the side of our house. The studio's entrance is in the back yard off the back of our garage.

Interaction with guests

One of us will be at home to greet you upon arrival and help you to get settled in any way we can. We like to provide you with as much privacy as you wish. We are on the opposite side of the house most of the time, so we do not hear our guests. We are home if you need us mornings, evenings and sometimes during the day. I work 4 days, Wed. thru Sat. and my husband is semi-retired.

Other things to note

We try to be flexible with check-in and check-out times, unless of course we have back to back guests.
The water in the kitchen sink takes a full minute to heat up.
We have a small above ground swimming pool, if you would like to cool off. Please use caution if you have small children.
Air conditioning is a small window unit that will keep you very comfortable on a hot day. There is a space heater if it gets cold.
Shower height is 6 feet 8 inches.
Sometimes if to many appliances are on at the same time it flips a breaker. It is a simple fix. If it happens please let us know.

This was our very first Airbnb experience, and Ruth and Jim made this experience very wonderful for my boyfriend and I. The apartment is perfect for two people, cozy, clean, and simply perfect! It is a short drive away from the ocean and restaurants. They were so accommodating, and we couldn't have asked for a more positive experience. Staying in Daytona? I highly recommend this place!

Dear will LOVE staying here at Ruth's little house in the backyard! Our first time with AirBNB. Quite private, excellent little home away from home, the double bed is comfy, the linens classy and clean, great decor, nice kitchen, cute bathroom with a seat in the shower =) The above ground pool was perfect for us and the location is close to everything. I recommend Ruth's place most highly.

The studio is even cuter than the photos and super clean. Ceiling fans and AC keep the air fresh and comfortable. No mildew...and this IS Florida! I can't imagine anyone finding anything to complain about in this lovely home away from home. If you do find anything, they will promptly make it right. A wonderfully cozy place that has been given a personal touch with attention to detail. All you need is likely provided. Your hosts care about your experience. No disappointment here. Be sure to take the time to ride the bikes across the bridge and onto the beach if you are able. It's a sweet ride! There were so many things there to enjoy that I didn't have time for, such as the books, grill, pool and fire pit. Take your time here! Enjoy the garden. An oasis! :-)

I am a hairstylist going on 40 years now, I work parttime for myself in a small hair salon near home. I enjoy fishing with my semi-retired husband Jim in our little boat. Gardening is my therapy. We love vacations in the mountains and the Adirondack mountains in upstate NY are our favorite. Spending time with our 2 grown daughters and 3 grandchildren is the best. We both enjoy meeting new people from all over the world and hosting them at our home.
