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 getaway

  • 5 of 5

This place was just perfect for me and my 2 kids. Literally could not get closer to the beach... close enough to run back for snacks or sunscreen or washrooms. We all loved the decor details - all the seahorse and octopus hooks, adorable art choices, seashell mirror, love the wood whale!... just fell in love with it. Will definitely rent again when in the area. The instructions were clear for using the home, the house was spotless, supplies were ample for my little family. You can hear the bar/party noise from the restaurant kitty corner on the weekends, but it really was not unreasonable and lent to the vacation feel. Owner responded quickly to texts and was super easy to deal with. Well run rental. Thank you!

Very nice place

  • 4 of 5

Very comfortable, relaxing place felt right at home there. Approx. 150 yards from the waters edge depending on the tide and walking distance to downtown Jax Beach. Will be the first place I look for next I come back to Jacksonville Beach. Tom S.

Amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying at Jenny and George's house! It is a block away from the beach, and minutes away from great restaurants and shops. They provided everything we could've possibly needed! Would definitely stay here again in a heartbeat!!!!

Amazing!

  • 4 of 5

Another wonderful stay at the cottage. It was perfect! Jenny is so accommodating with all our needs. She allowed us to stay some extra time on the day we had to leave since we had a late afternoon flight. It was so appreciated knowing we had a place to relax for a while longer. We thoroughly enjoyed our time biking on the beach and to Atlantic Beach. Thank you for the beach cruisers they worked great! The neighborhood was a little louder over the weekends with the new bar and restaurant on the beach corner however, it was only on the weekends. A beach umbrella and good beach chairs would be nice to have for the beach otherwise we made do with the beach towels that are provided. Thank you Jenny for everything we will be back again!

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.

Location

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.
