About Sean Fleming

Escapes by HOMEpoint is a real estate family adventure. HOMEpoint has been purchasing and renovating homes in the area for the past several years and as we developed our unique "finishing" styles, we quickly decided that we wanted to share our projects and HOMEaway.com has been the very best way to achieve this goal.

We enjoy bringing life back into the older homes in the beaches area. We are underway on the newest addition to the Escapes portfolio and it will be equally as unique as Escapes523. In fact, Escaps520 will provide our clients with the option of taking two properties if they are in need of larger accommodations and providing for up to 18 people directly next door.

We have a caretaker that might amuse you but will certainly work to exceed your expectation if the need for service or other attention that may be required during your stay.

Sean Fleming purchased this house in 2014

Why Sean Fleming chose Florida

As a family business, we purchased this home as it reminded us of qualities that are "Old-Florida" beach in many ways. The Master sitting area-porch, the outside entertainment areas, the uniqueness of converting the old workshop into a state of the art Studio are just a few of the attractions we have with our home.

We enjoy taking on the challenges of a renovation that many other just pass on. We see it as an investment in the neighborhood that benefits everyone. We have opened our doors to past family members that actually grew up in the home and they shared wonderful beach stories from nearly 50 years ago.

Those stories are evident when you get out and walk the shops, restaurants, parks etc... and see what the area is all about. We have had great experiences with the area church leaders, neighbors and business owners. We hire local service providers and they too, share their experiences with us in a manner that they want to help and truly take care of these special areas.

We have seen great growth from Jacksonville Beach, north, to Atlantic Beach, all accomplished with controlled, sustainable growth in the forefront of the planners and developers.

We are proud to call Jacksonville Beach home to Escapes-523.

What makes this house unique

We chose this property because it fit our goals for identifying unique, architecturally impressive design, for homes that we think represent the beach. It's not just another home on the block. We love our old wood floors just stained and finished and left old-school to remind us of the years this old-house has been in service.

We love our unique private spaces, fenced yard, outdoor showers, and so much more, that just suits a beach lifestyle.

Everything was nice and in place exactly like the pictures.

  • 5 of 5

The property was well taken care of, the neighbors were friendly. Everything you needed was there just like in the descriptions just bring your clothes and food. Very short walk to the beach or bike ride, very nice! We were in town for a wedding and everyone gathered over at the property and complimented everything. Also my dad stayed in the loft and he was right at home.

Beautiful beach house!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I recently stayed the weekend here and I was BLOW AWAY by how beautiful this house was! It was made in the 1940's but completely renovated and it was a dream! The in law suite was so adorable! This weekend was my bridal shower weekend and everyone said how gorgeous the house was! We kept joking that we wanted to buy this house and keep it in the family! The house was spotless when we arrived, the host was very helpful, seconds away from the beach and my favorite breakfast place (maple street biscuit company!!) Thank you so much for opening your home to us.. we will be back!!

Relaxing Five Nights!

  • 5 of 5

Five people who have been stuck on a ship for 8 days, returning from living in the dirt needed a last minute place to stay between the next departure on our deployment. The unexpected return to Jacksonville left us searching last minute for a place to rest our heads instead of living in 15 person berthing units on a ship that sucked the life out of you. To the rescue was this house which was perfect for the five of us who were able to stretch out, walk to restaurants, grab a beer and enjoy Jacksonville Beach. Working with poor communications in order to secure the house, the owner and property manager helped us along the way until we arrived. Their communication was impecable and made booking and getting to the house easy for an exhausted bunch.

The house could of fit a few more easily. The kitchen had everything you need even water and diet cokes on arrival. Beds were comfortable throughout the house. The decor made the total beach house escape seem real. The house in the back was a treat to the person who crashed in there and called it home for 5 days, it's it's own private house that will fit a couple to a small family with everything that you need at your fingertips. Wifi worked great which was a plus for all of us who had been missing it for months. This unexpected spring break as we called it was only made great by the house overall. There was a ton of natural light that expanded throughout all rooms of the house. A great house for a group of people wanting to get away and enjoy the Jacksonville Beach area. Thanks for a great stay!

Wonderful place for our wedding guests

  • 5 of 5

We had such great time at Sean's house. We were able to have our close friends all together for the days leading up to the wedding and it was priceless. The house has everything you need and the location is perfect for moving around Jax Beach. All of our guests were thrilled with how the place was decorated and the check in and out process was incredibly easy. The security deposits were returned very promptly. All things said this was an absolute five star experience.

Perfectly remodeled house. Great for all groups

  • 5 of 5

Our group was thrilled with Sean (property mgr) and his fantastic property. The house was stocked with everything travelers would need. (water & pop in fridge. K-cups. Etc) We were in town for a wedding at the Casa Marina Hotel which was very close to the house. With food and night life within walking distance, we didnt need to drive very much at all. I would 100% recomend this to friends and rent it again if visiting JAX Beach.

Also, the breakfast biscuit joint a couple blocks away was delicious.
