Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cottage in Beaches

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (9-House/4-back suite)

We have been renting ocean front vacation rentals for over 12 years. We purchased this very special and adorable cottage just steps from the beach and we spent tens of thousands of dollars renovating it back to it's former glory. We pride ourselves on providing an enjoyable relaxing vacation experience with nice furnishings and a beautiful setting and as a result we have many repeat customers that come back year after year.

This very rare and adorable 1934 beach cottage has been beautifully restored to its former glory days. We have named it K&J Casita Del Mar which stands for Kirk and Jean's little house by the beach. It is located in the heart of Jacksonville Beach and only steps away from the ocean. It is easy walking distance to many shops, festivals, bars, clubs, and restaurants. Everything is right there.

And 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.

We are also just 30 minutes to beautiful St. Augustine, FL the Nations oldest city and a major tourist attraction in its own right.

Our cottage is suitable for just one couple, several couples, or a an entire family getaway or family reunion. For a smaller wedding, why not have your wedding on the beach and your reception at the Cottage. We have a huge private backyard, one of the largest at the beach where you can simply relax or even have your breakfast, lunch, or dinner in the privacy of your own backyard.

Check us out on Google Earth or Google Maps and you will see how close we are to the beach. We have a limited supply of beach chairs for the adults, and even beach toys for the kids.

We also have a beautiful fire pit for those chilly evenings or for a good old fashioned campfire like the old days. And of course don't forget our very own Tiki Hut / Bar in the backyard too. This is the perfect vacation getaway location.

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.

We furnished this adorable cottage with nice furniture such as a rattan dining room set, and rattan living room furniture and we decorated the place like a home. You will feel it's your home away from home the moment you walk into this adorable cottage. The cottage still has original beautiful wood walls and wood floors almost throughout the entire house. The walls and floors are absolutely beautiful after our refinishing.

Our kitchen is stocked with cookware, dishes, utensils, glasses, and of course campaign glasses to start your vacation. The side-by-side fridge has ice and water in the door. You may just find yourself eating out in the terrific local restaurants within 5 or less than 5 minutes walking distance, or you'll appreciate the microwave and coffeemaker for your convenience too! Plus, you can also put something into crock pot and the food will be ready when you come back from beach. If not, you can throw chicken/steak/hamburger, etc. on the BBQ grill and enjoy your family picnic at the backyard. We recently added a cute surf board outdoor shower so that you can take a warm shower to rinse off all the sand.

A laundry room is equipped with washer, dryer to makes longer trips away from home easier.

Sheets, liens and towels will also be provided. The cottage is also furnished with HD TV , Blue Ray DVD player, and boom box for your quiet time. W also provide WIFI internet service too, just in case you want to stay in touch with family/friends during your stay.

Inquire with any questions or better yet, book it now and we are sure you will fall in love with it. We did.

** You have option to add our new addition for another 1 bedroom studio to have total 4 bedrooms and 3 baths and can sleep up to 11-12 guests or only book the 3 BR/2 baths for the main house only. As of now, we do not rent suite out separately so it stays empty if not rented.

'Very Important - Please Note. We do not list this rental property on Craigs List. Any listing on Craigs List for this property is a Fraud. Initial contact with owners should be through this website directly.'

Keywords: KJ Casita Del Mar is a very rare and adorable 1934 beach cottage which has been extensively renovated. It is located at the heart of Jacksonville Beach just steps from the ocean ( walk past one house ) and across from Ocean Park.

Our cottage is within easy walking distance to many shops, bars, night clubs, and restaurants. Everything it seems is within a few blocks of the cottage.

About Jean

KJ Casita Del Mar is an adorable beach cottage owned by Jean and Kirk of KJ Island Properties. We live just 10 minutes south in TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach. We have had two oceanfront vacation rental in Palm Coast, FL, since 2004, so this is not our first time at running vacation rentals.

We love traveling the world and have stayed in castels in England, Ireland, and luxury hotels in Paris, Italy, Greece, etc. including resorts in Hawaii, Japan, Sigapore, China, Tahiti, Bora Bora, etc. and we love to share our travel accomodation experience with others so wes try and keep that in mind as we furnished our cottage for you. We want our cottage to be unique and memorable. We look forward to staying there as much as you do so we made this cottage with as much charm and warmth as we can to accomodate your trip in Jax Beach and we intend to constantly enhance the property and amenities with feedback and comments from our guests.

Jean purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Jean chose Florida

KJ Casita Del Mar is this adorable cottage that we instantly fell in love with the 1st time we saw it. We feel so connected by such charm and also being next to the beach.

We live only 10 minutes from the cottage.

We purchsed this cute cottage at the end of 2011 and have renovated it to restore its charm and it is now ready to share with you and your family/love ones/party. You need to come and see it for yourself.

What makes this cottage unique

We were amazed with the beauty of the original wood walls and floors when we first saw this cottage. The wood walls and floor are almost all over the entire house. It is absolutely beautiful. We also liked all the windows and the bright light and warmth we feel throughout the home.

It was Kirk's idea to have a tiki bar at the end of the house so we made the big shed as the bar/game room where you can relax with the door and windows open and enjoy the ocean breezes rain or shine. It's a guy thing but the ladies like it too.

Wedding Central -- perfect

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for four days the weekend of our daughter's wedding and hosted more than 70 people from out of town on Friday night for a pre-wedding drink and food in the yard outside. Everyone loved the place and wanted to know how we found such a wonderful property. Owner was absolutely considerate and initiated contact to keep us up-to-date on storm damage following Hurricane Matthew the weekend before we arrived in Jacksonville. (Jean was a marked contrast to another property owner we tried to deal with and got so annoyed with we ended negotiations to rent.) We want to come again and just relax and visit the beach at the end of the street. For our stay we also rented the guest suite, which was perfect accommodations for a father and his two adult sons. In the main house we had one couple to each of the two main bedrooms and one man in the third room with beds. There was room for at least 3-4 to sleep comfortably on other beds, trundle and fold-out couch. Everything we needed was already provided in the house. Can't say enough about the entire experience -- it was perfect.

Great location with the comforts of home.

  • 4 of 5

Jean (the owner) was very communicative and we checked in with ease which helped start a comfortable vacation.

PROS: The house is very comfortable and big enough to accommodate a large group of people. The proximity to the beach is excellent with owner provided beach chairs & toys for the kids. The outside shower and shady backyard made returning from the beach easy. The beach towels and linens provided were more than sufficient and the washer and dryer made life a breeze. The kitchen was well stocked and spacious enough for many cooks to prepare meals with elbow room.

CONS: This is Florida so bug spray is a necessity. The provided tiki torches did help, but a yard treatment may have helped more (it did rain heavily, an assisting factor). The water pipe at back door was cracked and the driveway motion lights weren't working (a dark side of the house). Not major issues, just a couple fixable things to keep in mind.

Overall we had a wonderful stay and would definitely recommend this rental.

Beach life with Pokemon

  • 4 of 5

Our extended family just enjoyed a week at this cottage, a block from the beach. It also happened to be a block from a Pokemon Go location where, we were informed, rare Pokemons could be "caught". Apart from the beautiful beach and cozy accommodation, we enjoyed watching all the activity. My husband and I rented the "suite" as well as the main house, so that we could have quiet mornings to ourselves. (The grandchildren wake early) It would have been nice to have a small fridge in the studio and a couple more area rugs beside the bed. The furnishings in the main house were generally good, but the couch could do with recovering. The back yard area was nice and shady and large enough for us all to sit and eat together. All in all, a very comfortable stay.

Great Little Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

What a great little cottage!! This beach house has all you need. All appliances, linens, etc., in the cottage were clean, stocked and up to date. The location is fantastic - Literally steps from the beach and walking distance to most anything you could possibly need. The owner, Jean was great about answering all my questions and I had a lot since we were coming from Baltimore. Check-in and check-out was also very easy.

We enjoyed the shaded back yard every morning with our coffee & tea. Don't forget to get a muffin from the muffin shop next door - they are amazing! I would definitely recommend this cottage if you're visiting Jax Beach!

Superb

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. Our stay at this adorable cottage was very comfortable. It had all the amenities of home. The beach was just a minute away which was the biggest plus. We even had a small family barbecue in the backyard. We will definitely consider staying here again. Jean thank you for your quick responses to all our questions.
