Who are we and what can we offer !!!!!!!!!!!________________________!
We would love to challenge you, to try out something completely different, maybe something out of your comfort zone 😊 ???????? Something more personal, something more private.
Because we are your home, away from home.
Our home is private and very PERSONAL.
Every guest has a name, a story to tell. Happiness and personal drama all under one roof. Our guests are part of this big patchwork family of all age, religion, political orientation, origin, profession and tradition’s. This is a private family home, where we, the owners live on this beautiful property. Our BnB is our income. We work 24/7, all year long.
I am a registered nurse from Switzerland and my husband is an IT manager from Orlando. We always try to go above and beyond for our visitors. We are dedicated to make your stay as comfortable as possible, unique and unforgettable.
Everybody is welcome to experience this unique caring and personal ambience.
I do organize day tours to beautiful, exotic, relaxing, adventures and historical places. Learn English in our home. We do offer transportation. The Beach (Daytona) is only 25 min. from our home. Deland is situated between DAYTONA BEACH and ORLANDO. It is famous for Skydiving, snorkeling, springs, wild life, bike weeks, Ocala National Forest, horse racing etc.
THE BEST THING IN OUR HOME, _________________________________ are our guests, which bring an immense diversity of life experience, language, culture etc.... Some guests have a degree, and some don't. This combination of uniqueness is what brings life and adventure to our Bed and Breakfast. It never gets boring. Stranger can become friends. You can interact with our guests or have your privacy, whatever works best with your personality or life situation :-).

BTW: I am mama goose for all Stetson kids
( in case something happens), as their parents live far away :-)
Our guests call us the United Nation Home :-) Some guests stay 1-2 nights and other guests stay long term ( 3-6 -12 month) like our Stetson students/ professors, travel nurses, people between selling and buying a new house etc.. It all happens here!!!! Happiness and drama under one roof!! This is life.

Important to know!!!_____________________________________ We kindly ask our guests to please Take of The Shoes before entering the main house. If you wish, you can bring your own house shoes. Elderly, injured guest DO NOT have to take off their shoes. We do provide house socks.
Guests usually eat breakfast at 1 big kitchen table. It gives everybody the opportunity to get to know each other. There are days, where no one is coming for breakfast, and other days, we have 2- 4 or 12 guests for breakfast.
Some guests like to eat breakfast outside, underneath the gazebo or by the screened in porch.…. enjoy breakfast where ever you feel comfortable…
We serve a large variety for breakfast. Breakfast is between 7.00 and 9.30 am. No breakfast will be served before 7 am and after 9.30 am. Between 7.50-8.15 am, Mon.- Fri. we might set out a buffet server, as I need to bring our son to the nearby school.
If you like to invite additional guests for breakfast, which are not staying at the Swiss Floridian BnB, its $10/ person.
IMPORTANT !!!! NO BREAKFAST WILL BE SREVED between the 24th-26th of DECEMBER and 1st. of January.

We do offer self-check in (if the room is ready and cleaned) at any time of the day/night, when we are not home, are on sightseeing tours with visitors, are busy with our transportation service or running errands etc….
