About the property

3 BR 2 Bath House on corner lot with fenced in large back yard, that sleeps 6 in beds. The 3rd BR is usually set up with 2 twins for the family visit, but can easily be set up as a king for a couples weekend. It has everything you need except food. There is Wi-Fi, cable (ATT-UVerse) available for your use.

It is in a safe and quite neighborhood, located between the Intracoastal Waterway and the beach. Close to many restaurants and activities. Bring your boat and dock it at a local marina and have a fun vacation!

Lanie's Beach House is a quaint cottage/beach house located in Jacksonville Beach on 6th Ave North, which is in the heart of a fun, activity filled beach community close to many attractions in the North East region of sunny/warm Florida. It's convenient location between the beach and IntraCoastal Waterway that will offer the opportunity to do many activities either water related - or not - then return to a relaxing beach home to regroup before you take off on your next activity, one of many to choose from in the surrounding area. It is owner maintained and operated for that extra touch and comfort in knowing that if any issues occur, we are nearby to address them as soon as possible.

Lanie's Beach House is a 3 bed/2 bath single story home furnished in an eclectic beach style. It has a fully furnished kitchen and laundry room, BR's (with towels and blowdryers), an extra TV room, large fenced back yard that has several sitting and dinning area's, and an outdoor shower - great for relaxing and enjoying time together, yet plenty of room for alone time. Its location is close to Mayo Clinic, many golf courses, including Sawgrass/TPC, St Augustine, Fernadina, Daytona, and Orlando.

Whether your interests are water related - there are local marina's to dock your boat and cruise the IntraCoastal to St Augustine, Fernandina or just go to dinner on many of the great water front restaurants, or sightseeing- the many historical cities rich with information, shopping the local scene of antiques, the latest beach fashions or art, or simply relaxing from your normal activities. LBH offers a great home base while you spend your time as YOU want to.

About Delaine Lawing

I am a semi retired nurse who bought and fell in love with the house, and I want to share the relaxing atmosphere to visitors to the area.

Delaine Lawing purchased this house in 1992

Why Delaine Lawing chose Florida

It was my first house and became emotionally attached. I plan to retire in this house. I love it! It is a true Beach House between the Intracloastal and the Atlantic Ocean. It is in a safe and quiet neighborhood, and close to the action but able to enjoy peace and comfort without being in the middle of the "hub-bub"!

What makes this house unique

It is close enough to walk or bike to events in Jax Bch and the beach. However, it is just far enough away to be able to relax and re-energize, sit and have coffee or cocktail's on the back deck/lounge area. It is located in the middle of the 4 beach communities in the area - Atlantic Beach, Neptune Beach, Jax Beach, and Ponte Vedra Beach. I've had guests bring their boat and dock it at the marina (just 5 minutes away) and apend the time at the beach and enjoying all the many restaurants and activities up and down the Intracoastal Waterway with ocean access from St. Augustine to the mouth of the St John's river just north of us.

Enjoy the sunset, listen to the birds, RELAX! FISH!

We Loved It!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here for 1 week in January of 2017. We found the house to be very comfortable, well-kept, and well-equipped. We were completely satisfied with the house and everything within it. When we first arrived we found that the hot water was not turned on, but the owner was very responsive and called me within a few minutes of texting. (It makes perfect sense to not always have the water heater on so this was not a negative, but the responsiveness was definitely a positive.)

The neighborhood is fairly quiet considering the urban setting. Walking out to the street, one can look down the road and see Jacksonville Beach. Walking to the beach will take about 10 minutes or only a few minutes by car. Taking the critters out at night I could hear the ocean surf breaking on the beach. Inside, though, it was nice and quiet.

The house is well located with easy access to groceries, car washing, dining out, and dog parks. We brought our Beagle and Redbone Coonhound and regularly visited the Dogwood Dog Park, which was an easy 20-25 minutes away. Of course, our boys enjoyed the backyard as well and had plenty of room to roam around and sniff. As pictures indicate, the backyard is fenced, so we did not have to worry about anyone getting carried away and running off! Atlantic Beach is also about 10 minutes away, so there are plenty of options for walking and enjoying the outdoors.

I would definitely stay here again if we visit Jacksonville in the future and highly recommend this as a place to stay for your vacation - especially if you travel with your furry family members.

Cluttered, old, cheep

  • 1 of 5

The house was not to our liking. We were not comfortable being in it and left after 3 nights out of 7 nights paid. The house has small rooms with way to much stuff it in. It is way over decorated with stuff everywhere to the point there is no place to put any of your own stuff. The decorating and improvements that were done for the most part were very cheaply done. There were only 2 dinner sized plates in the kitchen, and no broiling pan. We had the 3rd bedroom made up like a king (twin beds put together) which took up 90% of the floor space in the room. You could barely walk around the bed, which was hard to tell from the pictures. The other bedrooms had more space with queen beds in them. The house was very clean and the owner did provide paper products and much of what you would need with toiletries for the bathrooms and some spices, etc. in the kitchen. She tried to make it a nice experience, but the house needs major remodeling and 3/4 of the decorating stuff removed.

Owner's Response: I am still at a loss for words as I was when we spoke on the phone after receiveing the email that you left early. I will allow my history and my guest approval over the past 3 yrs. speak for Lanie's Beach House. My style of decorating is coastal/distressed and some would consider my "old" stuff antiques and rustic which is pretty common and popular around here. My guests appreciate the laid back/beachy/eclectic style while visiting the area, and comments include comfortable and livable-My goal for a Beach House. The house is as pictured so there shouldn't be any surprises, it's a 70 yr old house. To your specific concerns: you chose to stay in the 3rd bedroom (typically the smallest) and said you were cramped-yet you mention the other 2 larger bedrooms with more room. Could they have been ok for a couple of days? There are 8 Pottery Barn dinner plates in the cabinets and while I try to inventory the kitchen at turnover, I didn't realize the broiler was not in its usual spot. Perhaps if you had called me with any concerns, I would have had an opportunity to do my best to accommodate you. At check in your comments included " great, very nice, and I'm sure we will be fine" - you arrived before I did so had time to look around. I realize I cannot make every one happy, but moving forward- for you I suggest you really look at the pictures and please give the owner a chance to remedy/respond to any issues that may arise. Best Wishes to you as a HomeAway guest and I hope you find houses more to your liking. Sincerely, Delaine Lawing LBH

A wonderful home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We booked Lanie's Beach House for 9 days so that we could stay in Jax Beach for some time before & after our daughter's wedding in Jacksonville. The house was convenient to the wedding venue, to the beach, & to grocery stores & restaurants. It was spacious enough for the 4 bridesmaids, the bride, & the mother of the bride to get ready on the day of the wedding. This is a wonderfully comfortable home in a quiet residential neighborhood about a mile from the beach. Extremely well-stocked kitchen (plenty of dishes, glasses, cookware, utensils, paper products). We didn't make full use of the wonderful backyard because of the extreme heat during our stay (even the locals said that it was hotter than usual) but the grill worked great. And the beds were comfortable. The wifi worked well. We had absolutely no complaints. Delaine is so welcoming and responsive. We have stayed in many vacation homes and this one was one of the best. We didn't really want to leave, and we'll definitely considering staying here again when we return to Jax Beach to visit our daughter & our new son-in-law!

Home at the Beach

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Lanie's house. The home is clean, comfortable and spacious. We were a group of six adults and never felt cramped or crowded.

There is also a fun backyard patio with party lights! The house is easy walking distance to the beach and many restaurant choices.

We would absolutely recommend this property to vacationing families desiring some "beach time". Lanie was the perfect host and a pleasure to work with..

Lanie's Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at Lanie's. It was perfect for us, myself wife, 3 grandkids, and 3 dogs. Never felt crowded. 3 TV's to please as many as possible. Fenced in yard wonderful for dogs, just turn them out instead of having to walk them at hotel. We drove to the beach but it wasn't far, we especially enjoyed strolls after dinner. The house is well stocked with everything you could need. I cannot wait to return.

Owner's Response: I am truly humbled by all of the positive response/reviews received recently. My goal was for LBH to be a vacation/short term stay that feels like a home away from home to relax and enjoy the surrounding area. Thank you all so much for making Lanie's so successful. I appreciate all of you for taking the time to post a review. Come back anytime and God Bless!!
