This first floor apartment in a quiet residential neighborhood is less than a block from the beach, and a short bike ride to the Beaches Town Center, shopping, spa, and dining. Available for a summer rental from June 15 to August 8, 2014

The Space

The apartment is kid and dog friendly with a huge fenced in back yard grass lawn. Kitchen has a mini-fridge, stove, and oven for cooking when you want to stay home and eat in. We also provide a cooler for keeping beverages cold. Enjoy the flat screen TV with Direct TV and DVD player. The huge covered back porch has a charcoal grill on request and in the summer and table and chairs for grilling out and eating outdoors. The cozy bedroom has drawer and closet space to settle in while you are here. The living room couch is a sleeper sofa that two more can sleep on. The roomy bathroom has a double headed shower so two can shower at once. There is an outdoor shower for rinsing off after a day at the beach. Shoot hoops in the driveway using the basketball backboard. 2 beach chairs are here for you to use. Please bring your own queen size bed linens, pillows, and please bring your own towels and beach towels.

Owner and family live upstairs. Owner is in and out of town, and most of the family is out of town for the summer starting mid-June. No other dogs are here during the summer. A $100 security deposit and a $50 cleaning fee are required.

Atlantic Beach is one of the most friendly, dog friendly, and enjoyable beaches on Florida's First Coast. Nestled in a quiet bedroom community, the sand is soft, but during low tide you can ride your bike on the beach to the Town Center 1.5 miles away for shopping, ice cream, or a meal. Dogs are allowed on the beach on the leash. There is a lifegaurd at the nearest beach access for safety while enjoying the ocean. The surf is often excellent for surfing, bodysurfing, boogie boarding, and paddling- bring your bikes, beach toys, and water sports equipment! Atlantic Beach has free tennis courts nearby, and community parks for the kids. Selva Marina Country Club is a mile away with an excellent 18 hole golf course.

Guest Access

Guests have access to this private apartment with bedroom, living room, kitchen and shower, covered back porch and a huge fenced in back yard with grass lawn.

Interaction with Guests

Owner interactions with guests are minimal. We may share the outdoor shower, or be working in the yard. We play basketball in the driveway and play with our dog in the front yard. Our dog Sparky uses the back yard and may interact with guests and guest dogs, however we can also keep him out of that area upon request. Sparky is a black labradoodle who is big but nice and social with other dogs. There is no smoking allowed in the apartment, on the porches, or on the property. Smokers may take a walk off of the property to smoke.

The Neighborhood

Our neighborhood is an older eclectic neighborhood in Atlantic Beach with a wide range of architecture, and a diversity of people. Everyone is friendly and lives the beach lifestyle- very casual, lots of people walking up and down the street going to and from the beach.

Getting around

There is no public transportation. If you bring bicycles, you can ride 1.5 miles to the Atlantic Beach Town Center, or 4 miles to the Jacksonville Beach Town Center on bicycles. Many people get around on bicycles here.

The 2nd and 3rd floor of our home is also available for rent. Please see the listing on this website.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • This was the perfect place for our stay at the beach, it was clean and quiet. We loved it, we love the location, it was easy to bike to everything, and so close to the beach. I would definitely recommend it.

  • This (email hidden)! It was clean, spacious, and close to the beach which is dog friendly! The air conditioning stopped working during our stay and the host handled the situation in a timely manner and met all our needs. I would recommend this place to friends/family and I would stay here again! :) Bring your bikes!

  • We went to Atlantic Beach for business and pleasure. The apt was very close to the beach and in a nice location. The owner was very helpful in anything that was needed. We took our dog and that worked out very well. We had a difficult time finding somewhere to stay that didn't charge a huge amount for the dog. This was perfect.
