Other Things to Note
If you golf is your game you're gonna love Jacksonville Beach. There are numerous course in the area including the world famous TPC Stadium Course.
Well behaved pets are welcome and smoking is permitted outside. Minimum 4 night stay.
House was very spacious and inviting. It was great to have the sheets and towels provided. The security code instead of a key was very convenient.
The house was just as described. The neighborhood was quiet and the walk to the beach was short and easy. Just about the only thing we missed was a comfortable and easy to access outdoor space for outdoor dining or relaxing. The beach, just a half block away, is vibrant but not too crowded and an easy walk.
Our overall experience was great.
Each of the 3 bedrooms with its own bath is on a different floor so there is plenty of room to spread out.
The kitchen and living space are very open, clean and comfortable. It's bright and well decorated.
We had a great time at Atlantic Dawn. Brent made check-in easy, the house was clean and bright, the neighborhood was very quiet, and the beach was in walking distance. We had our dogs with us and they enjoyed the fenced front yard and there was a hose out front to clean them off after a morning walk on the beach.
Tip for guests with dogs: beach is only open for dogs on leash before 9am and after 5pm. It was so hot while we were there, an early morning walk was the best thing. Ocean water was surprisingly a comfortable temperature. We did run into a couple aggressive dogs -- make sure to keep your dogs on a leash so you can control them.
Tip for shell collectors: this location was perfect. There is a band of seashells along the water. You will find the bigger ones on the water's edge.
Tennis courts are within walking distance, although it was too hot for us to play. You can also walk to a small park with a playground and deck along a pond.
I would definitely recommend Atlantic Dawn for any length of stay!
Atlantic Dawn was PERFECT for three couples (close friends), giving us a plenty of space for privacy AND space for social interaction, cooking meals, watching movies, etc. The house came spotless and fully stocked! - towels; dishwashing soap; paper items; wireless internet info was on the fridge. Most importantly, Brent was VERY reachable by telephone, and extremely helpful each time I called.
What we loved most: an enclosed yard with a grill and outdoor eating area; proximity to the beach - even closer than we expected!
Why four stars instead of five? (I would make it 4.5 if I could!) A few minor gripes: the dishwasher needs some serious work (or replacing). Our group loves to cook! But doesn't love doing dishes for six every evening... And, the grill could use some TLC. We still managed to have a couple delicious grilled meals, but only after some serious cleaning.
We loved this place! We were in JAX Beach for our daughter's wedding and had familty with us. This house had a large central area and 3 bedrooms, complete with baths. The location for us was perfect....central to the beach and restaurants. Would definitely stay again if the need arises. We never met the owner, but he was very accommodating to us. Thank you.
Brent, was a great host very quick on responding to all of our questions. The house is lovely, close to the beach and many great restaurants all within walking distance.
