Perfect for short term, long term stays or internships; close to shoppes, restaurants, hospitals and businesses in the downtown area, 20 minutes to virtually anywhere else. Includes use of a fully equipped kitchen, washer and dryer, and access to living areas.

El lugar

Located in one of Jacksonville's nicer neighborhoods just south of Historic San Marco is what is commonly known as The Duck Pond. Just a few doors from there is this large, comfortable room with a queen bed and a shared bath. Lots of natural light keeps the room bright during the daytime. This room has a large desk to accommodate students and interns, working professionals, or anyone needing a little extra space.

This is a perfect location for tourists, students, visitors to our wonderful medical facilities or people traveling for work or school - either short or long term. Many interns have taken advantage of the proximity to businesses and medical facilities. You are twenty minutes to the beach, twenty minutes to Mayo Clinic, ten minutes to Brooks Rehabilitation Hospital, and minutes to Historic San Marco, downtown and Riverside - where you will find St. Vincent's Medical Center, the sports complex, Nemour's/Wolfson's Children's Hospital, Ronald McDonald House, Baptist Medical Center and clinics, along with assorted office buildings, clubs and restaurants.

The neighborhood is quiet and safe and there is secure parking in the back of the house, or on the street. If you are a runner, walker, or cyclist you can run, walk and cycle for miles without ever having to go near a busy or noisy main street, all the while feeling safe as you walk or run through some of Jacksonville's most beautiful neighborhoods.

The only caveat is that you must love dogs. I live with two of them one little mutt and one little Chihuahua mix. Both are very friendly and quiet for the most part, though they do sound the alarm if another dog walks by or someone approaches the house. They take their job as watch dogs very seriously.

I work from home as a professor, writer and entrepreneur so I am often available should you have questions, special requests, etc. Wifi, access to a desk and plenty of places to sit and read, talk and/or relax are available.

Have a specific question, need or request? Please ask. People move into this neighborhood and stay for a lifetime - once you experience it you will understand why.

You will have access to a close bathroom the is private most of the time, use of a well tooled kitchen, TV with Netflix and Amazon Plus, Wifi, hanging closet space and a small chest of drawers --- whatever you need for a short term or long term stay. If you are a long term guest you actually have a cable hook up in the room so if you travel with your own ;-), you can watch in privacy, though Netflix and Amazon Plus are only available in the living room with the cable box for big screen viewing. My two guest rooms are located on the opposite side of the house from the kitchen and my room; the area can be closed off from the rest of the house for more quiet or privacy.

If you would like some interaction, I will be as available as you need me. Since I work from home I am often here to answer questions and provide suggestions and directions.

If you happen to join me for a cup of coffee in the morning or sitting around the TV later in the evening, I'd love to get to know you as we solve the problems of the world, discuss travel, cooking, culture, or just discuss the day's activities.

If privacy and no interaction at all is preferred, I simply go about my business as I would otherwise.


If you are unfamiliar with the city, considered by some to be one of Florida's best kept secrets, this San Marco area is one of Jacksonville's oldest and nicest neighborhoods. Many of the people who live here have done so for a very long time or for generations. The homes all have a great deal of character, the streets are wide and safe to walk and run and people look out for one another. It is a perfect respite after a busy day, provides a relaxing environment if a break from activity is needed, and access to some of the best restaurants, bars, clubs, museums and theaters you can find in the San Marco, Riverside, downtown area.

It is only a mile into the artsy San Marco village where there are shoppes, galleries, restaurants, coffee shops, clubs and bars. Another 2 minute drive and you are downtown and in 5 minutes you are in Riverside, another of Jacksonville's interesting and artful communities.

Jacksonville covers a large geographical area and things are spread out, so if visiting for just a few days an auto is your best option. There is a bus stop at the end of the street, though this is better suited for people who may be staying longer term for work, school, internships, etc. and who don't or won't be wandering far on the weekends.


This location is very conducive to both short and long term stays, especially internships and summer jobs. Though the place may not appear to be available for all the time you would need to stay, if you have a special situation, please send me a message. I may be able to work something out for you.

A full list of the house rules is provided when you check in. This provides the most important items, some of which can be deal breakers.

Since I work from home I have plenty of flexibility to help with any needs or requests you may have during your stay. No request is too strange, though I do reserve the right to say no ;-). Here are a few things that you will want to consider in advance.


1. No smoking - of anything.

2. You must love dogs. They are part of my family and are very friendly. Please do not let them out unless you first check with me. This is for their safety and my sanity.

3. If you have an interest in watching the TV, please be aware that the dogs like to sit on the sofa when someone is watching the television, so be prepared for company.

4. There is secure wifi here in the house. If you need access, I can provide you with the access code.

5. No additional guests - if you make new friends during your stay, please connect and socialize with them in one of the many bars, clubs, restaurants and coffee shops that are close by.

6. When coming and going, parking is in the back of the house behind a gate; please close and lock the gate -always. This contains the dogs and prevents them from escaping into the street where bad things can happen to these precious but clueless creatures.

6. Please remember that this is my home - I will do everything I can to make you feel at home, but some of the amenities you may be accustomed to (turn down service, mints on your pillow ;-)) will not be provided. However, I hope that what you don't get in amenities and services are more than made up for by the AirBnB experience of cultural exchange, conversation and good fellowship.

Linda is an incredibly warm and inviting host. You nay never want to leave her house, until of course you fully fall in love with her wonderful dog and decide to elope with it.

From the second I arrived Linda made me feel welcome and comfortable! I had originally wanted a different room, and she changed the comforter of the room that I would be staying in just to look more similar to the original room I was interested in. I stayed with Linda for 10 weeks, and could not have been happier with the experience. The location was safe and convenient to all parts of Jacksonville, and is very convenient for anyone with an internship at Brooks Rehabilitation. She was always willing to answer questions about the area, and we certainly enjoyed quite a few cups of coffee together. If you are staying short or long term, Linda is the perfect host if you are looking for someone who is considerate, welcoming, and warm hearted (and the dogs are an added bonus!).

I spent a month at Linda's house. It was a great experience. I felt at home from the very beginning. Linda is very welcoming and respectful. The room is just as you see it in the photo, extremely comfortable and has lots of space. Linda has a very nice house in a very safe and peaceful neighborhood. I highly recommend it.

I stayed with Linda for a 3 month rotation at one of the hospitals in Jacksonville. My stay with Linda was AMAZING to say the least. She was thoughtful and kind throughout my entire stay and offered great advice in terms of areas in Jax to check out/directions. We had great conversation some days while other days I came and went as I pleased. It was always a treat to come home to Shayla and Strider as they are perfect little companions. I will surely stay with Linda again next time I'm in Jacksonville. Highly recommend!

Linda welcomed us upon arrival and told us about the area. The room she offered was nice and clean with a very comfortable bed. Her listing was extremely accurate.

I am a corporate refugee from sales and marketing who is now a college professor, author and the director of a program hosted by University of North Florida that helps entrepreneurs grow their businesses. My personal mission is to help people live up to their full potential through their work and I now get to do that every day. With a folder full of book ideas I am looking forward to writing and traveling more so I can spend more time taking my ideas from file to flight. My most recent trip was the trip of a lifetime - to India. If I could do it all over again I would be a cultural anthropologist.

From the time I was a young girl I was always curious about people who were not like me. As a host I get to meet so many interesting people that there are days when it seems I have already started my cultural anthropology career.
What do I like? I have a passion for the earth, animals and old houses. My favorite food on the planet is Indian. I can't imagine life without my dogs, my books, my computer, yoga, and my hiking shoes. I love being outdoors and am a pretty good vegetarian cook, throwing small dinner parties with a handful of close friends. I meditate daily, travel a couple of times a year and as an 11 year cancer survivor, truly appreciate the gift of every sunrise.

I grew up in Central New York state in the U.S., but have lived in the UK - London, Southern California, Texas and Florida for most of my adult life. I always find it interesting how much it feels like home when I go back to upstate NY, London or California to visit. Sometimes, our first homes are wonderful places to be from :-).

I have a basic understanding and working knowledge of Spanish, and a housemate who speaks French. We are always trying our best to share, learn and grow. Hope to meet you soon!
