About George and Jennifer Lomax

My husband and I have owned this property for 25 years and it was built by his great-grandparents in 1926. I am a retired high school teacher and my husband still works in the medical field full time. In the past we have rented both the upstairs and downstairs apartments to full time tenants but after some major renovations we decided to try our hand at renting out the lower unit short term as a vacation rental home and keeping the upper unit vacant for personal use. After almost two years on VRBO we can honestly say we've truly enjoyed the experience and have met some great people.

George and Jennifer Lomax purchased this house in 1990

Why George and Jennifer Lomax chose Florida

My husband's great-grandparents had the house built in the 1920's when Jacksonville Beach was known as Pablo Beach. He still has fond memories of summer vacations with aunts, uncles, cousins and Gramma at 'the Beachhouse' when he was growing up.

What makes this house unique

We live close by in Jacksonville and are available if we are needed. The views from the place are great and the distance to the beach can't be beat! Fun,Sun,Sand and Surf. What more can be said?

Perfect beach property and in my opinion is priced too low.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I did not expect such a beautiful home for the price. I grew up at the beach and understand how difficult it is to maintain property there, so I was pleasantly surprised at not only the space in the home but also the meticulous upkeep. Great property, great owners, and an overall great vacation for my wife and our 2 children.

Great location, cozy place, accommodating owners - highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

Literally, steps away from the beach and within walking distance to many eateries. Tastefully decorated, comfortable accommodations. Very responsive and accommodating owners. Would definitely recommend.

you would like to stay

  • 5 of 5

As soon as you walked threw the door you felt comfortable and at home.

Nothing was missing.

The gas grill was a big plus and beeing so close to the fishing pear and far enough away from the night life (according to my husband)

My daughter found a new friend in the owner of this beautiful home.

The owners were really hospitable and caring.

We sure would like to stay there again.

I recommend for other people to stay there just not on the dates that we choose ;-)

Comfortable beach cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is a nice beach rental. The rooms are roomy and clean. The kitchen is even big enough to have multiple people cook. Which is always a bonus! The backyard is just as nice as the pictures, but the front is just as nice to lounge. Three of us even fit for a morning yoga class.

The location is ideal in my opinion. You are just far enough to have a quiet neighborhood feel, but close enough to walk anywhere. Plus there is a restaurant diagonal from the rental. The beach is right there too.

I used to live at the beaches, so I've seen some beach properties out here. Rent this one. You will be happy.

Oh, I love the pictures of the house from 1932! You have a wonderful place. Thank you for sharing it with us!
