Charles was very friendly and genuinely interested in providing a comfortable space. This was the perfect place for us. Conveniently close to the beach, yet nice and quiet surroundings. Would definitely stay here again.
When I got pulled to Jacksonville by business, my first thought wasn't "beach vacation!" but my girlfriend and I figured we'd tack a long weekend onto the work week and get some rest while out there. Having never been to the area before, we didn't know what to expect, but I'm pleased to report that the experience was so fabulous that we can't wait to do it again. And this cozy little beach house was a big reason why. It's exactly as the pictures show it to be -- maybe even nicer! -- and a 2-minute walk from spacious, awesome beaches. The house is fully equipped with everything you'd need, both for the beach and in the event you may want to hang out at the house and relax.
Wally (Charles) was a fabulous host, accessible quickly whenever we had a question. He lives in the unit above, but I wouldn't have known had he not told me (and noted it in the Airbnb listing).
Long story short, I feel like we stumbled onto a nice little secret, and can't wait do it again. I'll book this place, if it's available, any time I'm in the Jacksonville area.
Charles was very flexible and accommodating. The place itself is quite lovely. Fragrant flowers and lush greens flank its entrance. The French doors leading to the bedroom along with crisp white curtains give it an airy feel, and the bed was quite comfortable. The kitchen is efficient and has enough storage space for snacks and beverages you might want to bring on your brief walk to the nearby beach.
This is a great location right next to Jax Beach. Parking was a breeze. Charles was very accommodating. He provided beach chairs, towels, beer in the fridge and even a sleeper futon. We had a really nice golf and beach vacation!
Charles is very welcoming. The space is just as beautiful as it looks in the pictures. I was very pleased with the experience and would recommend it to anyone looking for a pleasant beach vacation.
