Great stay

  • 5 of 5

The place was nice neat and clean. Interesting layout. I would stay again. The only thing I would have liked more is a view of the ocean from the place. It was close but not on the water with a building in between. That is the only slight bit of a negative I could even suggest.

It was fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

The property was exactly as it appears online and the owners could not have been nicer and more accommodating. They responded to me immediately and made sure my stay was comfortable and that we had everything we needed. If I ever vacation in Jacksonville again, we would love to stay there again!!

Perfect location and beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

We were so very fortunate to stay at Jim and Joy's lovely townhouse during my mother's visit to the Mayo Clinic. The location, which is around the corner from the beach and only six minutes to Mayo, could not have been more convenient. The home is very clean, spacious, and beautifully decorated. Joy and Jim are excellent hosts who are easy to work with. From the welcome snacks and bathroom amenities to the detailed notes on restaurants, shopping, etc., it was evident that Jim and Joy truly care that their guests have a wonderful, worry-free visit. We will be forever grateful for the flexibility they showed us both before and during our stay. Thank you both for being a blessing to our family!

4th of July Stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our week long stay in Jacksonville. The fireworks were great for 4th of July. You could see them from the Pier and also in the other direction from the beach where we stayed. The townhouse was very nice and really convenient to the beach. It has everything you need for a week of fun. The kids enjoyed the boggy boards, toys and beach chairs. The umbrellas were a nice surprise and came in handy keeping the sun off of you for a while. The buggy to take your things from the townhouse to the beach was outstanding. The 3 bedrooms with their own bathrooms worked out great for us. Everyone had their own. It was convenient to the grocery store and eating places. The owners were very easy to work with and are very friendly. I would highly recommend this place for your vacation stay.

A great month at Jacksonville Beach Condo!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of four adults left the snow and cold of Minnesota behind to enjoy some great weather in Florida. The weather was great but what really made the trip even better was the Ocean Breeze Condo. The pictures and description are accurate and the condo is just a short block walk away from a clean and uncrowded beach. The condo had everything we needed and all the bedrooms were roomy, clean and quiet. All types of shopping are nearby and loads of good restaurants. Of all the VRBO properties we have rented this is the only one where we have actually met the owners. Joy was a pleasure to work with in booking the condo and she came to visit us the first and last days we were there. She was always available by email and text and provided us with tips on restaurants and farmers markets. We would return here again and will recommend the condo to all our friends.

About Jim or Joy Lowe

Thank you for your interest in our beautiful beachside townhome. We take great pride in offering our casual beach elegance accommodations to our guests. We have traveled a bit for business and pleasure across the US and in Europe, the Middle East and Asia. Because of the exposure to varied cultures, we have integrated our lessons learned about quality service and making travelers feel they are home.

Our favorite place on the planet is right here in Jacksonville Beach. We have been married for 16 years, we have 5 children and 10 grandchildren.

Joy grew up on a farm in south Arkansas and brings with her an excellent work ethic , good ole' southern hospitality and charm. Our vacation rental is a reflection of the same warmth and comfort of our own home. Joy attended high school in Star City, Arkansas and graduated from UofA, Fayetteville, AR. Following graduation Joy spent the majority of her professional career as a Human Resource Manager.

Jim grew up in a military family, both his mother and father were WWII veterans. He grew up all over the world living wherever his parents were stationed. Jim graduated from New Mexico Military Institute in Roswell, New Mexico; Class of '65 High School and '67 Junior College. He was commissioned in 1967 as an Infantry officer serving in Vietnam and attending US Army Aviation Course. Following his military service Jim received a BA in Organizatinal Management from John Brown University, in Siloam Springs, AR. His corporate career was a "global experience" and as a business executive knows the meaning of service to customers and how to accommodate guests. You will enjoy his attention to detail and work ethic to make our vacation rental a great place for you to stay. Our goal is to make you think/feel our vacation rental is your "home away from home".

We have tried to lighten your "load" by providing beach chairs, games, umbrella and other beach items

We would love to have you be our guests in our home.

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.
