Hi, welcome to Florida! I'm as low key and easy going as it gets. I love nature and have a big garden filled with magical things. I also enjoy kayaking, art, books, theater, crafts and of course having fun with my family and friends.
I know it can be difficult for people who are "different" to get lodgings when they are away from home. My promise to you is that you will always be welcomed and treated with kindness, dignity and respect on my property.
Vicki Conrad purchased this cottage in 2008
It sits under an amazing 150 yr old oak tree. It is very private and sits off to itself and It has it's own driveway.
Full kitchen, garden view shower, very private, organic garden on site. Lots of sitting areas,
I enjoyed meeting Vicki and Dave, and felt very comfortable and welcomed during my month long stay at the cottage. Also, enjoyed meeting the next door neighbor. The cottage met all of my needs and expectations. The bike trail was great and only a block away.
Thanks Vicki, Rick
Vicki was very accommodating! She had several suggestions for things to do while in town. The cottage is very quaint nothing crazy extravagant . It was just what my wife and I needed :) I would stay here again if I'm down this way. Thanks Vikki!
