This listing Cannot be rented as a private venue during special events like Mardi Gras, Voodoo Fest, Jazz fest, etc as multiple bookings are accepted during peak seasons.
Backyard outdoor venue for small weddings, receptions, cookouts, birthday parties or other small gatherings. Fill free to set up your own Jumpy House, tables and chairs, decor or even rent Porta John's. Maybe you only want to have a small service for an hour or set up the day before and have the yard all the next day. Host flexible with advance notice.
Two outdoor tent potties discretely tucked away behind tree line. Each has hospital potty chairs with bucket filled with cat liter underneath. It also has a basket for your accessories. The other tent potty has a bucket with lid and a standing wicker shelf and black nylon basket to hold your toiletries. I also supply 1 roll of TP per tent potty and inside each bucket is a bag of cat liter. There will be an extra bucket of litter and scooper inside each tent to cover new deposits and a roll of garbage bags to line the buckets. Once the initial courtesy supply is exhausted it's the guest's responsibility to replenish supplies. Remember, this is an outdoor rural listing to experience camping close to the city. Please come prepared with all of your essentials but if you forget something the neighborhood store, Walgreen's, Walmart and the DG are all within a very short walk of the camping location. It's perfect!
Guests clean up and remove all trash and waste. You may burn, bury in wooded area or take waste with you to dispose of but you may not leave for the host. If guests elect not to clean up trash and waste security deposit will be charged the maximum allowed. The host is NOT responsible and will not clean up or remove guests waste bi-products.
DIY Shower: Long wand handle garden nozzle with adjustable showerhead attached to a large Sheppard's hook with Velcro hanging over a kiddie pool with optional curtain on a hula-hoop. Water source: garden hose attached from house and a Sun bag to heat water naturally. It serves its purpose and a fun experience for the price.

All confirmed guests are sent the physical address prior to check-in. You should reach out and contact the host prior to just showing up. I will happily give you directions and landmarks to make it as simple as possible for you. Please DO NOT go knocking on neighbors doors asking them where Sky's campground is because there is no Sky's Campground. This is a residential neighborhood in a wooded area and I host guest on my private property. Previous guests have done this, parked in neighbors driveways even walked up the street asking everyone they saw where was Sky's Campground. This only causes problems for me and Airbnb as it is not necessary for all my neighbors to know I'm hosting guests and Airbnb already has a bad rep with many homeowners and home associations as they are fighting to ban Airbnb in most cities. Call me if you're lost or confused but if another guests contacts my neighbors again I will give them a bad review and ask you to leave as this causes complications ling after your checkout. I'm sure many hosts can agree.

Make me an offer I can't refuse. I'm here to book you, Today. :-)
I'm Sky and I'll be your host for this accommodation. I'm a seasoned world traveler, former Marine of 10-years, former Department of Defense civilian of 9-years. I've also worked in an engineering firm and taught as a school teacher for disabled, autistic, ADHD, special needs and benchmark kids before becoming your host.
I've traveled to over 20 countries, lived long term in 3 of them including Europe, Japan and the USA. I picked up German as a second language while living there 7 years/zeiben jahres! (Ich liebe Deutchland! Ich hat im Stuttgart, Hockenheim und Neckargemund gewohnt. Ich auch im Heidelberg arbeiten und im Uni gelernt. Aber, ich muss meine Deutsch mir uben.) (Lauchen)
= I've lived in Germany for 7 years. I worked in Heidelberg and went to the university there. I need to practice speaking German more. (Laughing)
After all my journeys I eventually found my passions; real estate, interior design and hosting. I own and manage a few corporate rental vacation homes which I take joy in designing and leasing to business travelers and vacationers.
I'm a single mother of a very charismatic, smart and rambunctious school-aged little boy who keeps me on the go and entertained daily. As a fairly new mother and business owner you can imagine "busy" is my middle name. We travel often for business and socially. I enjoy having an active lifestyle with business, friends, working out, swimming and mommyhood. The only thing missing is a significant other but hoping he's out their somewhere. I'm totally anti-drugs and smoking this my strict House Rules policy. I love living a clean and wholistic way of life. There was a time in my life, if I had to choose an alcoholic beverage it would've been red/white wine or maybe just create it as its own food group.:-) Amazing how life, age and a child can change your life. Laughing.
I can be extremely OCD when it comes to cleanliness. It doesn't help that I'm prior military and a Virgo. It's my super power and my curse. I hope my professional housekeeping staff have replicated my standards as closely as possible in your accommodation.
Passions: socializing with friends, traveling abroad, gardening, home improvement, decorating, hanging out with my little one and learning. I like watching DVDs before bed if i don't pass out from exhaustion first like: TRUE Blood, Twighlight, Saw Dogs, Niptuck, Dexter or old reruns like Fraiser, Sinfield, Everybody Loves Raymond, Friends, Two and a Half Men... However, my newest obsessions are Scandal and Empire.
If you catch me at home I'm probably cooking, working on my latest DIY project, digging in the yard or hanging out with my adorable 5-year old. However, the reality that you will most often see is my absence as I'm on the road allot. This is my little crash pad. I've designed it and made it comfy for people just like myself. You work hard and home is a place to relax and get away from the anxieties of the world. You want a clean, safe place to lay your head without the drama and without paying out the nose. I want mature, responsible, clean adults (25 or greater years old) to lease my accommodations and enjoy the spaces I've created. All private suites and entire homes come standard with extreme Wi-Fi, premium cable, fully furnished suites, kitchens, baths, new bedding, extra linens, TVs, DVDs, DVD-R, personalized spa and hygiene items on a supped up guest tray.
Christian home. No smoking, no tobacco use, no illegal substances, no pets and no weapons permitted inside or on the property what so ever. Any violators will be asked to leave immediately without refund.
A copy of valid ID required to gain access to property; no exceptions. All guests sign a short-term vacation rental lease agreement.
I can't wait to host you and read your review after you've stayed at my place. "The Sky's the Limit!"
