About The Space

The guest house features 2 comfy queen beds, air conditioning and heat, washer/dryer, full kitchen, full size refrigerator, ice maker, high speed wifi, walk in shower and a smart TV.

We love having well behaved pets explore the grounds with their families. We do have a $75.00 per pet per stay fee that helps keep us pet friendly. The maximum number of pets for this property is 3. Please inform us of the number of pets joining you during your stay. If you did not include and pay for the number of pets in your reservation, please message us with the number of pets and we can bill your card or you can leave it with us before you leave. (Please see house rules for pets)

Whether a romantic getaway or family outing, we are sure that Harmony House will delight the nature lover & rejuvenate your soul!

Our greatest joy is having happy guest, please look over the photos and read the description and house rules in their entirety before you book. Most come here for the meditative grounds and forest setting. If you are looking for a huge sprawling home to lock yourself in for days on end, this may not be the place for you. Our sister properties, The RiverHouse or RiversEdge are better suited for you huge sprawling spaces types.

While a 2-night stay is possible, the vast majority of our guest’s have told us they wished they had booked an additional night. If a 3-night stay is possible we recommend booking at least 3 days as it is seldom possible to add a night at the last minute. Discounted stays begin at 3 nights!

Should you need additional space for more guests, check out our sister properties, The RiverHouse, RiversEdge, RiverNook and Harmony House Located on the River about 15 minutes away.

We also offer The Serenity Kayak Experience, The Serenity Hiking Experience as well as tube and Canoe rentals. The Experiences are great ways to explore our beautiful river and forests with me as your guide and have become very popular with our guests. Or, try our rental packages if you prefer to explore on your own... Just message me for more details!

We have no doubt you'll fall in love with the place just as we did when we built it.

Guests have access to PineyWoods House as well as the forest on our property. We do live next door so you may see us coming and going from time to time or working in the yard. Just say howdy and we will introduce ourselves.

We live on the property and are only a message away should you need anything. We give our guests privacy although we love to chat if the occasion arises.

PineyWoods House is in a very quite neighborhood. Close to Colovista Golf & Country Club.

The occupancy listed is the max occupancy this property can accommodate. If you intend to host any event, celebration or other function, you will need to disclose this to us in advance and obtain approval, including an agreement to all additional fees and terms.

Other Things To Note

We strongly advise trip insurance to cover your booking and will provide any documentation you may need to facilitate your claim. Our cancelation policy will be adhered to at all times during your reservation. We do not refund reservations outside of our cancelation policy. Unlike hotels who typically overbook reservations, we do not have that option. We have blocked off the property from all advertising once you booked it and typically have a hard time re-booking on short notice. If you do cancel outside of our policy, we will do our best to rebook the property and will send you any funds we collect to offset your losses. These funds may be less than you originally paid.

Your driveway parking is limited to 3 cars.

Policies to Note...

We are in the hospitality business and work hard to provide clean, comfortable accommodations at a very reasonable rate for the properties we offer as attested by hundreds of 5 star reviews at our properties. Should you have any issues we are only a message away and typically can be to the property in 15-30 minutes. If you have a situation that we can help with, we will be there and most likely have replacements for common items.

We do not discount or refund for light bulbs, coffee makers, or any electrical appliance going out as they do not give advance notice that they are going out. We do not offer refunds or discounts because you saw a bug, mosquito, spider, lizard, gecko, snake, armadillo, squirrel, rabbits, deer, turkeys or flying insects. This is a forest property in a tropical environment and they live here. We use a pest control company and spray indoors regularly for pest. If doors are open for any length of time they will find their way inside the house. Keep the doors closed. We do not offer discounts or refunds for feelings, premonitions, thoughts, wants, opinions, dislikes, medical emergencies, death in family as well as any early departures unless it is a County or State issued mandatory evacuation which includes the address of the property and then only for nights not used. We provide in advance pictures of the property on the listing site, which are true to each property, not doctored, and many reviews state the property is better than the pictures we provide. We use professional cleaners and linen services. We take pictures of the property immediately after it is cleaned and hold those pictures for our protection. Likewise we take photos immediately after your stay. We stock the property with ample towels and wash cloths and a starter supply of soaps, shampoos and toilet paper for the size of the property. If you run out of soap, toilet paper, shampoo, message us. If you have booked a property that does not have a washer and dryer, you can use one of the local laundry mats to wash them or message us to discuss additional linens and the fee for that service.

We do not have a bug problem, we do not have an unsafe neighborhood problem, we do not have a cleaning problem. We have never had bed bugs but we preventively treat for them, have encased mattresses and the likelihood of you finding said bug is practically zero. We do not barter discounts for alleged sightings of them or for promises of 5 star reviews for said discounts, and will immediately report such language to The Hosting Platform. If you have any situation we need to address, message us on the platform and we can typically be there within 15-30 minutes. Reporting after the stay, or not reporting the situation to us first, in an attempt to garnish a free or discounted stay, will be considered fraud. Should you attempt to cause us harm by reporting any misleading information to the Hosting Platform without first reporting this information to us, allowing us access to see said situation, document it, attempt to rectify it, and that information causes the Hosting Platform to suspend any or all of our listings, we will seek legal remedies against you for any and all lost revenues, cancelled reservations, time and money spent rectifying the situation with the Hosting Platform, court and legal cost and any other damages recommended by our council.

If you are the typical person wanting to enjoy a wonderful vacation at our properties we apologize that you had to read a disclosure primarily meant for the growing numbers of scammers out there.
