Overview

About the property

4 Bedroom, 1.5 Bathroom, Sleeps 8

A fabulous colonial executive home with many lovely features, such as antique rugs and chandeliers, built-in bar area, and hardwood floors, which makes for an exceptional travel experience. Set on 1 acre grounds that include a private patio and large swimming pool in a tropical setting.

The property has undergone extensive renovations both inside and out and is furnished with many antiques. Every room is individually decorated with its own unique charm. The home contains a magnificent fully equipped kitchen with professional quality gas 6 burner cook-top and oven, fridge and freezer, and dishwasher. There is ample dining space inside the home and also on the patio for those preferring to dine al fresco.

The house is only 4 miles away from the FSU Stadium and close to many superb restaurants.

Guest Access: The entire home.

Interaction with Guests: No interaction other than to contact you via phone call or text once you have checked in to make sure everything is as you expected it to be. :-)

The Neighborhood: Older established quiet neighborhood literally close to everything - 5 minutes from I-10, 4.4 miles to FSU stadium, 4 minutes from The Centre of Tallahassee (new mall), within a 5 mile radius of over 50 eating establishments to choose from.

Getting Around: The property accommodates parking up to 7 vehicles. Closest bus stop is about 1 mile away. I can provide transportation to and from the airport for an additional fee.

Other Things to Note: Smoking is permitted on the front porch and back patio.

There will be additional fees for events for guests over 8 people, such as a Family Reunion or Wedding Reception. For example: Medical & Liability Insurance, Porta Potty Rental, Off-Site Parking Fees, Event Space Rental Fee, etc.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

This house is beautifully furnished and in a great location. We enjoyed our graduation weekend and bbq'd outside. Karen is a great hostess, quickly responded to my inquiries and very willing to help.

  • 5 of 5

Just such a beautiful area! Every window you looked out of was such an amazing view. Yard was gorgeous! Enjoyed the pool and BBQ! House was amazing as well. Loved the kitchen and huge dining area. Karen, owner, was awesome as well!! Literally felt like home. Just a few miles from FSU.

Lovely home with bug yard

  • 4 of 5

Karen's house was great for my family! Tons of space and a large yard in a beautiful neighborhood were the highlights. Karen was very friendly and accommodating offering a complimentary bottle of wine and preparing the fire pit for us. She was very welcoming of our 2 dogs who loved the backyard too. I would certainly recommend anyone to stay here.

The only reason the place was not a 5 star stay was the home had a slightly smokey old house smell at times. Karen mentioned the home was 2/3 renovated at the time so we chalked it up to an older home's charm and I assume it will be remedied in the future since the home is non-smoking.

Thank you for letting us stay Karen!

We stayed for a weekend at this house and everything was great. Very clean and very well stocked with all the little things we needed. The owner was fantastic. Very easy to reach and helpful throughout our stay. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone and we will be sure to return when we are back in town
