Perfect rental!

  • 5 of 5

Found this lovely beach home and it was just perfect for our group. We arrived from different parts of the country (California, Ohio and south Florida) and ranged in ages. This home is simply lovely! Plenty of room 3br/3bath 1 block from the beach. Ceiling fans, two patios (1 with a grill). Joy was a joy to work with (sorry for the pun). She was genuinely concerned that we had a wonderful time. The house was clean and had a code so no key to worry about! She even left us bottled water and mints at the bedsides and goody bags with sunscreen and travel size toiletries. The garage is filled with every beach item you could possibly need. Kitchen well appointed and she had a menu guide that even told you if restaurant was walking or driving distance away. I highly recommend you rent as you will not be disappointed!!

Wonderful Beach Rental

  • 5 of 5

Our experience was great. The apartment suites were fabulous. Everything was exceptionally clean and bright upon arrival. Each bathroom had an amenities gift containing all the necessaries that may have been left behind. The kitchen was very accommodaing as well. PLUS, there were all sizes of boogie boards, beach towels, and sand toys in the garage. The flat screens actually worked...as I have rented before on more than one occasion where the TV was old and cheap. Definitely a family friendly place to go for vacation. And, the best part is...the beach is not crowded....another plus.

A wonderful place to stay,extremely satisfied customer

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival I was greeted with the ever so friendly hostess, not to mention the breath taking awe of the place. Our hostess was there for everything we might have needed,as bike rental to be included. The interior was amazing and accommodating to every need. Easy access to the beach,with a no worry kind of feeling that follows.Among all the extras our hostess provided, the beds slept in my opion like heaven. Baths in every room is a major plus. Information for evrything you could possibly want to know about the home and its surroundings ,will be right on the table,and your Hostess is just a call away,if ever needed. We will definitely be back.Theres Love and Warmth just waiting to be given when you come to the ocean.Rest ,relaxation, and Joy...

Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

By far, our best VRBO experience ever. Joy Love - you are amazing. Your kindness and thoughtfulness shine through in every interaction and in your beautiful beach home. We loved staying in the Jacksonville Beach condo. The condo is clean, well appointed (with many 5 star hotel feel extras!) and close to everything! Loved the short walk to the beach. Loved being close enough to bike to my favorite coffee shop for ice coffee every morning. Loved having three bathrooms! Loved that there are beach towels, beach chairs, and beach toys (boogie boards, sand toys, a surf board!). Loved the king size bed in the master bedroom. Loved that there were multiple TV's (not that we watched them). Loved having a full size washer and dryer to use. Condo is perfectly set up for a family traveling with teenagers. We all had our own space, but also plenty of opportunities to hang out on the beach and in the condo. My whole family eagerly awaits a return visit. Now that we have found Joy and Jim Love and their beach condo, we won't stay anywhere else!

A fabulous family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Joy Love..you are the best. From the first time we spoke about your rental I knew I made the right choice. Your beach condo was perfect for our annual Players family vacation. The location was perfect giving us the beach and an easy ride to TPC. All of the special touches for your guests were so appreciated and something that a 5 star hotel does not match. If anyone is looking for the perfect place on Jax Beach, Jim and Joy Lowe's condo is it. Thank you again for being you the perfect hosts.

Absolutely Amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

Jim and Joy Lowe have by far the best vacation condo rental! it is less than a block from the beach, not on a busy street, and only about a mile from food and entertainment in Jax Beach. It is in the perfect spot for the beach and the condo comes with all the beach accessories that you will need, including chairs, umbrellas, coolers, towels, toys for children and even beach buggies to carry everything in. The condo itself is perfect and extremely clean. The three bedrooms are spacious with their own bathrooms and the kitchen and living room provide an open layout with a grill on the porch. This condo felt like home and not a rental. Jim and Joy were very responsive and even provided a pack and play and booster seat for the baby. I will be booking through Jim and Joy for our next port call in Mayport Fl!!!

Jacksonville Beach
Car: not necessary

Our beach is un-crowded allowing plenty of space that sets the scene for memories to last a lifetime. Spectacular sunrises greet you on your morning visit to the beach for coffee or stroll; occasionally the dolphins will meet you there. It is known for the flat open beach which makes it great for hanging out at the beach; walking or running, beachcombing and riding beach cruiser bicycles. South Jacksonville Beach is walking distance to Ponte Vedra Beach to the south and Jacksonville Beach Pier to the north. First Street, where our home is located, is the first street from the oceans edge, a small street with character and charm of a beach side community. Playing in the sand and surf a great way to spend your days, but the fun doesn't stop there! Our Townhome is just 15 blocks from Ponte Vedra and within walking distance of over 7 restaurants and shopping. Adventure Landing Theme and Water Park, bowling and many more activities is just 10 minutes from the home and is on the Beaches Express trolley route.
