I had a great time in Stanley's apartment. It's cute and cozy and just a block away from the beach. It's also a very convenient location, walking distance to local restaurants, coffee shops and night life. Check-in was hassle free; he had everything completely prepared and ready for my late evening arrival. That really was comforting since I was so tired once I got there. The upstairs deck was nice and caught a cool breeze every time I was outside. There are even sweet kitty cats that greet you from time to time. The private driveway made parking simple. It was a great experience and I would recommend this spot to my friends and family!
As described, cozy, & a perfect location for exploring Jax beach. Stanley is friendly and prompt with text & phone replies, which was essential since we had to make spontaneous arrangements. Thanks, Stanley!
This apartment was more spacious than the pictures revealed. The location was great. We were close to the beach, craft breweries, gastropubs, shopping, art...everything we were looking for. The rental had all of the character and charm of beach houses I grew up in. The decks were great. The ocean breeze can't be beat. A great place to stay. I highly recommend this one.
The beach house was perfect. Stanley was there to greet us. The accommodations were just as described. The neighborhood was quiet. Everything we wanted to do was close by. We would definitely return to Jax Beach House.
My 16 year old daughter and I loved staying at the Jax Beach House. We had a family reunion down the road at one of the big hotels and it was wonderful to have our own getaway place to go and spend quiet time. Stanley was very sweet when he welcomed us upon arrival. The guest house is well equipped...there are the perfect amount of ccoking tools and dishes and extra towels. My bed was comfortable and clean and my daughter really liked having the pull out trundle for when her cousin came to hang out during the day (they spent the whole time on their phones sharing the latest Snapchat or Video something or other). It was nice and cool inside on the sticky 100^ days outside. We would definitely stay there again and would hope for cooler weather to enjoy the awesome 3rd floor deck.
I’m writing this review because I was the one responsible for booking Stanley’s place on airbnb for my parents and sister during our brief family trip. Although my boyfriend and I resided elsewhere and didn’t have the pleasure of staying at Stanley’s place with my family, I was able to spend a great amount of time there. We were extremely impressed with the overall cleanliness and cozy feel of the one bedroom beach rental, in addition to its excellent location. It is within walking distance to several great restaurants, Starbucks, and, most importantly, the beach! Also, upon entering his place, my family found bananas and a bottle of wine on the table along with specific instructions and information about the home. He also provided his phone number which actually came in handy when they had a problem turning on the AC. Stanley was quick to respond and helped resolve this issue right away which they greatly appreciated especially when dealing with the typical Florida heat! Furthermore, towels, shampoo/soap, cooking utensils, and extra blankets along with other items that any guest/s would need were also provided. In general, my family had a wonderful experience during their stay at Stanley’s home, and would highly recommend his place to anyone who is looking for a safe and convenient lodging while in Jacksonville.
The apartment is in a great location near the beach. The two decks were a great setting to watch sunrise and sunset. Stanley was an excellent host: very welcoming and friendly. Even better than we thought from the reviews and pictures.
