About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Bathrooms one block to the beach

We are located only steps away from the sand. Sunnyside up is an adorable two story beach Townhome located near all the action, but far enough away to enjoy and relax while you are on vacation. Home comes with complimentary Wifi and Cable.

There are two bedrooms with queen size bed in master and two twin beds in spare. Full bath upstairs and 1/2 bath downstairs with accommodations for 4 people. The kitchen is fully supplied with dishes, silverware, glassware, cooking utensils, blender, microwave, toaster oven, & coffee maker. All linens and towels are furnished.There is a stove, dishwasher and full size refrigerator. The main bath has a full size shower.

If you have a large group looking to stay together also check out the rental next door # 4264840 Sunnyside Up Townhome unit B and book together.

There are four beach communities within a five mile radius to explore and visit, each with their own personality, three of which are accessible by trolley. We are only 10 minutes away from the famous Mayo clinic and 15 minutes to the PGA Tour Headquarters and famous TPC Sawgrass Championship golf course with its new $80 million dollar club house and the annual PGA Tour Players Championship Tournament. There are many shops and restaurants near by and many fun things to do within a few blocks or within a few miles. Because we are in a residential neighborhood we simply ask you to respect the neighbors at night with common courtesy and the fact that they have to go to work in the mornings while you are on vacation.

About Monica McAlpine Smith

I'm a Realtor for Keller Williams Realty Atlantic Partners. Formerly I worked for Merrill Lynch as a Financial Advisor for over 7 years. I'm originally from the state of Maine but lived most of my life in Florida. I graduated college at FSU. I finally moved to the beach about 8 years ago which was my life long dream and I still wonder what took me so long???

Monica McAlpine Smith purchased this townhome in 2012

Why Monica McAlpine Smith chose Beaches

This is a prime location next to quiet Neptune Beach, FL which is strictly residential and it's within a mile of both beach town centers. I have lived within a couple streets of this location on and off for almost 10 years and would often pass by it on my afternoon walks with the dog. It wasn't living up to its full potential and when I realized it was on the market and I could afford to buy it I jumped on the opportunity. I have since fully remolded this unit, and painted the outside of the building this beachy blue color. I have had great experiences with long term and short term renters and look forward to many more.

What makes this townhome unique

Quite Street a block from the ocean. No major roads to cross to walk to the beach, as the locals say, "It's East of Third."

Sweet Spot

lovely townhouse on lovely beach

  • 5 of 5

This home is very cute, well maintained, and in a perfect location to walk to the beach. It is well-stocked with towels, beach towels, kitchen gear, and beach toys/boogie boards for the kids. Monica, the host, communicated extremely well and went above and beyond by mailing back the baby blankets I accidentally left in the closet!

All in all, a very pleasant stay. I would recommend to anyone, especially those with small kids.
