This wonderful hideaway was everything that we had hoped for. Charles has a magical spot with this listing and our experience in Jacksonville was perfect based on what he had prepared for us. 10/10 would stay again!
My boyfriend and I stayed at Charles' apartment for 3 days, and it was a wonderful experience! He's a block from the beach, we had no trouble parking on the street, and the apartment was an absolute delight! Beautifully decorated, very comfortable and definitely puts you in that relaxed at-the-beach mood! The apartment is a super quick drive or a 15 minute walk on the beach to restaurants, shops, Publix and Walgreens. We loved the location and the house, and we recommend it to anyone coming to Jacksonville Beach!
The apartment was a delight! It was decorated with flair and full of vintage details. We found it to be comfortable, quiet and clean. The beach was a very quick walk, and we had our coffee outside on the bricked patio. You also can walk to two coffee shops and many good restaurants. Charles was a pleasure to meet, made the process easy, and provided snacks, wine and coffee. Loved the plants and trees surrounding the house.
We enjoyed our stay being right near the beach in a relaxed neighborhood, and Charles was very quick and helpful in answering our questions. He added some nice touches including a bottle of wine and snacks which were appreciated.
"chic, cool, elegant, love it!" is a cute little 1st level beach apartment conveniently located one block from beach front. Although, Charles was out of the country during our stay, he ensured we were welcomed and responded quickly to our communications. The apartment was very clean and provided all essentials necessary while traveling!
Charles as always was a great host! Super easy check in super easy check out; simply open the door on the way in and close on the way out. The house is clean, neat and stylish with great amenities and of course how can you not love being 1 block away from the beach and a block away from Starbucks. Easy street parking and location make this a must stay when in Jax beach.
This was a great location just a block from the beach and complete with everything you need for a vacation. Convenient to nearby beaches and restaurants in Jacksonville, Neptune, Atlantic, and Ponte Vedra Beaches.
