I have been a self employed family law attorney for almost 20 years. I've also been a landlord for about 18 years. One of the things I love about working as an attorney andas a landlord is the variety of people I get to meet - from all over the world. Of course, our modern day lifestyles are very stressful even if you love your work. To help relieve work stress, I started gardening in earnest. One of the perks of staying at SunFlower Acres are the available veggies and fruits in season free for the picking by our guests. I'm striving to be a good steward of the soil, so my gardening technique is primarily "No Till." I just keep piling on organic materials such as pine straw, wood chips, grass clippings, composted soil and natural fertilizers like bat guano, cow manure, kelp, rock dust, alfalfa pellets, and the like. My wish list for my future evolution is to grow more food than what I buy in the grocery store, become a zero waste household, and eat a whole food, plant based diet. Finally, my law practice has grown into a mediation practice, and I try to live and work by the motto: "Solutions are only limited by your imagination." I'm excited about being an AirBnB host and I look forward to meeting all my future guests.
Lorrie purchased this Guest House in 1993

Very cute and has everything you need
Property is awesome!!! Great kitchen and plenty of space to roam. Loved it for the second time!
The property was perfect for our needs. We enjoyed the woodsy setting
The property suited our needs perfectly. We had a newborn with us and having the kitchen was a lifesaver to be able to prepare and clean bottles. Everything you need is there!
Dear Ashley, We're very happy you enjoyed your stay at the Cottage. Thanks for taking care of the place as if it was your own. You and your family are welcome back anytime.
It was very well equipped, clean and just an overall great place to stay. We have already booked for our next trip to visit our son at UF.
A very cozy, well equipped cottage in a pretty setting.
We found Sunflower Acres cottage to be very clean, well equipped & a cozy place to stay. We liked that it was out in the country yet only 20 minutes from the University of Florida. We also appreciate that we were able to bring our 2 Chihuahua’s with us. We will be returning to the cottage in another month for a UF Continuing Education class.
Very cozy and clean
My husband and I stayed here for two nights while we moved our son into his new residence at University of Florida. It was close enough to campus but far enough away for a peaceful and quiet visit to the country. The cottage was very clean and comfortable.
Thank you so much. You were wonderful guests. We would love to have you as guests.
friendly host, not great fit for us
While we appreciated the friendliness of the host, we felt that this wasn't a great fit for us - mainly due to the location to the springs and highsprings (this home is very far out in the country, nothing nearby) downtown but also because there were some conditions items that needed to be attended to, the seating in the living room wasn't very comfortable, etc. I thought the price was very reasonable but the cleaning fee was high.
