I want to let you know FIRST this apartment in on the second floor (see photo's). You will need to be able to walk up one short flight of stairs in the house to arrive at your apartment. The APT is lovely, quiet, clean, and has your private entrance. Hardwood floors throughout the house. You will have full privacy, with a lock on the door. The apartment is attached to the main house, where I reside with my 17 year old son, Brady and two cats, Lyme and Skitters. You will have full privacy and your own private entrance to your apartment. ***If you are expecting a Ritz Carlton quality home do not book. This is an old original Florida home. And has not had a lot of modern updates. Bathroom needs a little updating. We have NO TV in the apartment. Also for parties of 3 or 4: With a pullout futon for two and a large bed, the space can comfortably sleep 4, but please note that it may be a bit tight for 4 active guests- if you are ok with that.. we are too:)
You are also welcome to use the front porch and backyard. Driveway and street parking (free). Make yourself some espresso and soak in the sun. You will be very close to Ringling Museum, Jungle Gardens, Airport, Beaches and downtown. This house is on the west side of the trail in the lovely Indian Beach, museum neighborhood. * **Please note the front porch is NOT accessible from your apartment, but you can walk around to the front of the house and relax on the bottom porch at your leisure.
Ping Pong table in the back yard is a amazing:)
