You don’t need to drive all the way to Key West to feel like you’re in Key West when you stay in this latest Airbnb find.

Located in Jacksonville’s oldest neighborhood (Springfield National Historic District), the Gardner’s Cottage was built to historic standards in 2010 and was designed to reflect the Craftsman style. With its garden setting and private pool, you would never know downtown was so close-by. It’s so serene.

The airy, light-filled guest house is actually pretty spacious. It has 400 square feet including a bedroom and adjoining bathroom, all done in a contemporary garden motif. The friendly owners live in the main house on-property and strive to make sure you have everything you need during your stay, including floats for the pool and a fridge stocked with drinks.

The Gardener’s Cottage is a true Jacksonville gem!
