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?

Home away from home!!

  • 5 of 5

Jenny and Bud's beach house is perfect: very close to beach (across the street), close to shopping, walking distance to restaurants, and decorated to make you smile. It is very comfortable and a wonderful place to relax and just enjoy. We love it and are returning next year.

Beach Charm

  • 5 of 5

I rented this property to be close to my daughter's family and their newborn daughter. I live 1500 miles away and did not want to miss this special time. The location was perfect for me; being a beach lover, you are just steps from the beach. The home was very clean and had a lot of beach charm. The décor was tasteful, not over-the-top "beach" stuff. The kitchen was adequate, I was able to prepare meals for the new family. Other properties I have rented have had very little in kitchen supplies. When I had questions for the owners, they responded in a very timely fashion.

I would definitely stay at this home again if it were available on my next visit to Jacksonville.

Nice house by the Beach

  • 5 of 5

We came down for my daughter's wedding. We used to live in Jacksonville, so we know the area. When we pulled up to the house, the pictures on line do not do it justice. It is awesome. It is very beach felling. It's small and decorated very nice. It's about 100 yards from your toes touching the sand. Nice front porch, to sit outside and enough the weather. I think the best part, was the hammock out back. I was really on vacation, laying in that, and it's only 3 blocks to Rita's Italian Ice. It was so nice to meet Jennifer, "the owner". She stopped in to see if we needed anything. Very nice. If we ever where in need of a vacation home, I would most definitely stay here again. Thank you to Jennifer for letting us stay here.

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.

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.

Located within walking distance of many restaurants. Great fishing and surfing down the block at the Jacksonville Beach Pier. During the summer season watch free movies and concerts outside at the Seawalk Pavilion band shell. Take a scenic bike ride. Enjoy the great outdoors while hiking or biking through Katherine Abbey Hanna State Park,a 15 minute drive north. Head 30 minutes south to historic St.Augustine, the nations oldest city. Golfers have a 10 minute drive to TPC Sawgrass (home of the annual PGA Tour Players Championship)and it's world renowned courses. 15 minutes to Mayport Naval Station, 30 minutes to Amelia using the Mayport Ferry,a little over an hour to Daytona and two hours to Disney World. Only 10 minutes to the Mayo Clinic.
