Other Things to Note
If you call to have food delivered, Make sure that they know you are located UPSTAIRS at 817 2nd Street South. They need to go through the gate to the left of the house and go to the stairs in the back of the house. The apartment is upstairs.
NO SMOKING! No if's and's or "butts"!!
NO PETS. We do have a cat in the main house but he never goes out and has never been upstairs in the apartment.
Please keep noise to a MINIMUM after 10:30pm. We are located in a quiet residential area and there is a very strict noise ordaniance. Also we live right below the apartment! Noise or "excessive visitors" will not be tolerated.
The apartment has central heat and air so if you open a window, please make sure it is closed before you go out in case it rains. If you open the front doors and windows, please turn off the heat or air so we don't pay to heat or cool off ALL of Jacksonville Beach!

Stanley was quick to respond and so accommodating! The upstairs apartment was more then we would have expected, stocked with all you need to cook for yourself! We enjoyed our meals on the deck and the walk to the beach in between working on floral arrangements at the house! It was lovely chatting with Stanley and his wife about their travels!
The apartment was great! Perfect for 2, right near the beach. Stanley was a great host. Everything was perfect for our stay.
The JAX beach house was perfect! Location was ideal, it was clean, safe and quiet. Stanley greeted us upon arrival and gave a quick tour. The house is exactly as described in the listing. The top floor sun deck is awesome!!! Hope to visit again...thanks to Stanley!
Delightful stay in a safe, quiet area. Beach is within easy walking distance. Apartment is near everything- grocery stores, banks, pharmacies, restaurants; including a fabulous Thai restaurant around the corner. We found the place to be clean, everything worked, beds and chairs are comfortable. Parking in the driveway will accommodate a large vehicle, probably two short cars in tandem (like a Mini or Miata), but not two regular-size sedans. Street parking within the block was easy to find for our second car. Wifi works well with good reception in all areas of the place.
The space inside the apartment is very comfortable for two people, but will quickly start feeling crowded if adding more, IMHO, as the ceilings are cut down by the building's roofline. Tall people will need to mind their heads if they're going near most walls.
Stanley, the owner, is friendly, helpful and communicates well. He is quickly available by cellphone or email. I did not meet him, as he was out of town, but was greeted by two very friendly cats that keep watch of the place.
Overall, I had a good experience and wouldn't hesitate to stay again!
