About the property

7 Bedrooms, 7 Baths, Sleeps 18

Sweeping ocean views are yours at Golden Star, our 3-story beachfront house right on Jacksonville Beach. Ready to accommodate a big group, this house includes an in-law flat, modern electronics, new furnishings, grassy yard, and 3 ocean front balconies.

There's plenty of space for everyone in the group at Golden Star! The ground floor is a self-contained 3-bedroom, 3-bath villa with an exterior entrance, gorgeous ocean views, full kitchen, master suite, and 3 separate living spaces. The upper two floors feature a beautiful third-floor loft with huge master suite, formal living and dining areas, big kitchen, and panoramic beach views. No matter where you are at Golden Star, you're surrounded by beauty and comfort!

The house is set just behind the dunes, with a nice grassy strip for the kids to play on and the adults to enjoy picnics, bird-watching, and entertaining. A boardwalk leads down to the beach, and the sound of the surf is always present when you're on the balconies or in the yard at Golden Star -- the perfect soundtrack to your Jacksonville vacation!

Just in from the yard is the Florida room, with comfy wicker furnishings and lovely views. There is also a family room on the first floor and a living room with TV, decorative fireplace, and plenty of cozy seating. The master suite is just off the living area, with a king-sized bed, private TV, and en-suite bath with deep soaking tub and walk-in shower. Sunshine spills into nearly every room, making it a pleasure to wake up each morning!

There are 2 additional bedrooms and full bathrooms on the first floor: one with a queen-sized bed and the other with 2 twins. Each of the bathrooms has both a shower and tub option, ideal for younger children. And this floor also contains a full kitchen plus a dining table! You can use the ground floor as a self-contained flat for another family, or make it part of the whole house.

The second floor is the main living and dining area of Golden Star, featuring a sitting room with two deep, comfortable armchairs facing a bank of huge windows overlooking the ocean. This will be your "go to" spot at Golden Star, a great place to begin the day. (Get up early enough and you might even catch the brilliant sunrise over the horizon!) For larger gatherings, the living room is the focus -- here you'll find a huge HDTV with DVD playera, ultra-comfortable couches (one of which opens into a queen-sized bed), a luxurious reading chair by the windows, and a decorative fireplace. Spacious and inviting, the living room is where your group will congregate at all times of day!

But why stay indoors? Two separate balconies open out from the second floor, inviting you to feel the salt-kissed breezes and enjoy the sound of the waves up close! Bring your breakfast out here and watch the pelicans dive-bomb into the ocean to catch fish, or spend a few minutes updating your social media (you have free WiFi at Golden Star) in the balmy Florida sunshine.

When it's time for a snack, enjoy the convenience and spaciousness of the big main kitchen at Golden Star. It's completely equipped with appliances large and small, granite countertops, cookware, dishes, and utensils. The kids will love the breakfast bar here with its high stools, and you'll appreciate the sun-drenched breakfast nook, not to mention the big table in the formal dining room.

There are 3 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms on the second floor: 2 with queen beds and 1 with two twins. All are spacious, comfy, and light, with lovely views. A washer and dryer are also on hand to keep all those swimsuits fresh and dry!

Travel up to the third floor and you find yourself in a charming loft sitting room with a sleeper sofa, TV, and balcony access. The master suite is just adjacent to this -- a huge bedroom with a king bed, TV, private balcony access, and breathtaking views. The en-suite bath is palatial as well, offering a deep soaking tub, walk-in shower, and separate powder room.

Slip out onto the 3rd-floor balcony and enjoy panoramic views of the coast

Dirty, and broken

  • 1 of 5

Apon arrival the house was filthy, we did not get our private beach access due to construction on the property we were not aware or told about until 3 weeks before our arrival, nothing was solved and no response from the rental company or the owners. Spent alot of Money for a crap house and crap service and no attempt to rectify the experience. I will not be using Vacation Rental Pros. in the future, and I will not EVER recommend this company!!!

Wonderful way to have the entire family in one space. Immaculate, huge and directly on the beach. Tucked in between two high rise condominiums with a view unprecedented. Views are unobstructed with a full 180 degree panoramic view. The owner appears to have spared no expense. It truly sleeps 18 people in luxury. Plenty of private parking for the family. Back door to beach. Front door to main drag. Its like owning an oceanfront beach home. This rental was more than I expected. Top rate customer service, well maintained property. Definitely would recommend this property to family and friends.

Golden Star

  • 4 of 5

My Husband and I as well as several extended family stayed at the Golden Star for the wedding of our son. The home had beautiful views of the ocean was a great size for the number of people that were in our party. The only down side was the carpets were dirty and stained in the main level. I would highly this oasis.

Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property with an extended family of 18 for Thanksgiving week. We had grandparents down to a 12 year old. There was plenty of space to cook and eat with that many as well as have a Monopoly game continuously set up. The house was great, the view was spectacular. We could walk to restaurants and Publix for last minute things. There was plenty of parking for everyone. I would highly recommend this property for large family gatherings. The only suggestion I would make is that the bedrooms in the upper house need some dressers or luggage racks to put suitcases on. We had to have our suitcases on the floor the entire week - minor issue. Overall loved it and are considering renting it again.

Golden Star Beach Front Residence - both units

  • 4 of 5

Overall the property as advertised and very spacious. The property had many amenities that you might not expect. Outside furniture needs repair, and upstairs kitchen bar stools were wobbly so were set aside and not used. Overall good experience and met our needs for our large family and daughter's wedding.
