|Minimum Stay||3 nights|
This lovely condo is set up to make your vacation or work travel a blissful experience! Decorated very nicely with a comfortable king size bed, fold out Ikea couch that is super comfy and the kids or maybe grandma (give Grandma the bed) won't mind sleeping on, it's full size. There is a washer/dryer in the unit! It's all you really need a blender and the beach, make a Pina colada for Grandma and she might be ok with the couch! The building was built in 1983 so not too new and fancy on the outside but surrounded by the big boys and simply charming on the inside. You will want to come here every time you visit beautiful Jax Beach!
We bought this condo so we could have a place to stay when we visit our son and his wife, they live only a few blocks from the condo. Also for a place our grandkids could come to and make lasting memories of wonderful beach time. We live in the middle of Florida, and need beach time from time to time, everyone does!
Jeannie purchased this condo in 2011
You will understand as soon as you walk in!
wellll...upon arriving at condo our impression was "not bad"..good location..good view..really liked the door code lock..upon entering condo, sofa seemed out dated along with the chair..a reclining chair and a reclining sofa that would fold out to double bed would have been more suitable..the stove is outdated..then found out tv was locked in on " local channels" only...BUMMER...NO SPORTS CHANNELS...A SPORTS FAN BIGGEST NIGHTMARE...
the listing did mentioned free channels..not interested in watching movies during the time there..spending the amount of money to rent this condo should have unlimited amenities..you had to walk around and through the park next door to get to beach..after entering pool area we found the gate to the beach dunes was padlocked..we spent more time up the street than at condo...parking underneath was a little nerve wracking cause there was limited height which made parking for my jeep , which sits rather high, unnerving...not much room above the roof of jeep and the spaces were really cramped...not much room...even driving under the balconies was unnerving..a sub-compact car would be good...
also , a portable propane grill would be nice to have or use on the balcony (unless there are restrictions)..wanted to grill steaks but the only grilling seem to be in the pool area..NO THANKS...they do make portable grills just for balcony or patio use and glad I brought my steaming pot for shrimp/crawfish cause there wasn't one available...all in all the condo served its purpose...
The apartment was great. We spent 4 nights at the property and enjoyed every minute.
My new wife and I truly enjoyed the condo. Our honeymoon was made better by staying there....much thanks to Jeannie and her husband for allowing us to stay. God bless!
great location and perfect for 2. It has all you need for a couple to spend a day/week/month at Jacksonville beach. A home away from home but much warmer. Location is fantastic with pool and ocean steps away. I would recommend to anyone. In case the owners are not aware, the front left burner is not working but the 3 others worked just fine. Also we stayed in this area some time ago and the key to the shared pool continues to be a challenged and could be looked at as I often helped others open the door. Looking forward to another visit some day
We flew into JAX for a small family reunion, and what a great location this place is. The beach right out front and viewed from the balcony. The pool was a nice addition to relax by. Overall, perfect stay with plenty of shops near by and places to eat are endless. We would come back here if it's available on our next travels to Jacksonville Beach.
So I go to the beach a lot, this was actually my second beach trip in May 2016 so I'm pretty traveled on the beach scene. This location cant be beat! Not only is it right on the beach, but the location to the restaurants, bars, and stores was all a short easy walk a couple blocks up. We parked our car when we arrived and didn't use again until we left town. The main intersection of town is like 3 blocks north of the condo and its in a pretty quiet area. We went on the busy memorial day weekend and crowds weren't an issue and traffic wasn't all that bad for what im used to at other beach communities.
The condo itself is a very nice updated one bedroom with the living room couch pullout bed which was plenty for two grown men to share. We had a full kitchen which was stocked with items so we saved a few bucks going to the Public grocery on arrival and drinking/eating out of the condo some. The condo also had all the cleaning supplies, towels, bathroom stuff etc you would ever need. They even had things left behind by others to share. The best part was it also came with beach items like chairs, an umbrella, and some toys for your use. The pool right below was smaller but very nice and hardly used and felt heated when we were there. There's a key to get into it and to cut through to the beach. The lock doesn't work well but other than that no issues.
Plenty of parking and we didn't even know until the last day our unit actually came with 2 reserved spots. Again we didn't drive anywhere so a non issue. Jacksonville is a pretty laid back community and fun place to go. Lots of nightlife when we were there at the local bars like Lynchs, the Ritz, and Shim sham room. For great subs try Sun Deli subs which was about a half mile south of the condo...amazing choices and not a standard chain place. Phat Burgers is about a mile north on the main road and again great burger and fries! The other place we liked was about .4 miles away on the main drag Beachside Seafood with a neat upstairs and good prices. The bar Lynchs Irish Pub had good bands every night and was a fun atmosphere.
Finally the owner was so easy to work with. She started emailing me helpful info and tips as soon as I booked. Great at responding quickly to my many questions and gave me her cell so I could text as needed. Even when we were there and had a couple questions she was on it and seemed very friendly. IF the price is right for this which it usally is, book it and you'll be happy!
Whether you're here for work or play this is the the perfect place. It is located right on the beach with a beautiful 8' deep pool. You can walk to shops and restaurants. Minutes to Mayo Clinic and other state of the art health facilities. This property has everything you will ever need, and you feel good just walking through the door!
