The Cottage is located in a township that has NO HIGH RISE BUILDINGS and as mainly all residential. It is in a primarily private residential neighborhood. The neighborhood is Very quiet, safe (2 houses across the street are owned by local police officers) and very friendly.
Durring your stay you will get a feeling that you belong there. It is very welcoming and you will get a sense of instant localism by staying here in the Cottage.
This definitely is not anything like a typical hotel room. Come stay with us.

Interaction with Guests
Enough to be there when they need me and to guide them to the types of attractions they want information on.
The key here is Neighborhood. There are very few renters here. It's not uncommon to stroll out to the street late afternoon and meet up with the other neighbors socializing.
And Safe! This area would be safe with out the two separate police officers that live across the street within 200 feet of here.
The Trolly is less than 300 feet from the Beach Cottage.
This is in a real beach neighborhood. Respect for the neighbors is part of the agreement. No smoking inside the apartment. Guests will be responsible for any damages. Damage Charges will be added to your credit card.
$85.00 Cleaning fee due by check in.
Hal was an awesome host, he was flexible with out arrival time and ensured we had everything we needed to have a good stay. He's very friendly and was more than willing to tell us about the local area and some of the best places to check out.
The house itself was perfect. It was clean, well cared for and had everything could have needed. It's location was pretty much perfect, close to the beach (a easy 5 minute walk) and close to many of the great places around Neptune Beach and the surrounding area.
My friends and I all agreed that when we go back down to FL, we'll be staying here again.
Super clean, super quiet. Great location. Slight confusion with gaining access to the place, but it all worked out fine! Will definitely stay here on future visits.
Okay, get this. We arrive at midnight, after a gruelling 18 hour flight, and there is half a sack of cold Coronas waiting in the fridge. Oh yes, the beach house. The beach house is cute, clean, spacious, and it is tastefully decorated. From the art to the furnishings, it reflects Florida and the easy salt life. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen, well stocked with everything we needed to cook. The residence is located in a quiet, safe neighbourhood, and it is an easy 5 minute walk to the beach. As for the host, you would be hard pressed to find a better one. Hal is very personable, generous, knowledgeable, and available. I say this because we stayed with him for 8 days while we were in transition looking for rental homes and a car for our son who is a university student from Canada. Hal gave us good advice and even helped us move some furniture with his truck. When it comes to renting a beach house and finding the perfect host, you needn't look any further.
Hey, Wait a minute. We don't want the nice people out there thinking I'll help with moving furniture. Haha It was a joy having you and your family and feel free to let Mitch know if he needs a go to person here to feel free to call on me. Hope to see you on your next visit and thanks again all you did for me.
We loved our stay here! It's just a short 3 minute walk to the beach. The place is very clean and bright. I felt safe knowing that a cop lives right across the street. Hal was very nice and helpful. We will definitely be back in the future.
The neighborhood is friendly, convenient to the beach, shops and restaurants. Hal is a gracious host and the property was perfect for our family of four (including two teenage boys) to spend a long weekend surfing, shopping and cycling. The description and pictures accurately show the property. We would definitely recommend this property, and we intend to stay at Hal's again. Absolutely ideal location.
The beach cottage is a great place to stay. My classmate and I were on a therapy rotation in jacksonville and we're there 2 months. The cottage is very clean everything you could ever need is there from kitchen supplies to paper towels, and if something was missing that we might need hal even offered to provide it. Hal was a great host if something was going on around the beaches he would tell us where to go as well as the hot spots around town. I couldn't have asked for a better place to stay and I hope I will be able to go back at some point.
We spent 2 months in this cottage through the worst of the winter. Neptune beach was only a few mintues walk and you could walk or bike for miles. There is also great hiking and biking in the many parks nearby. The host, Hal, was always helpful and actively solicited suggestions to make our stay better. Hal is a wealth of information about the area and he seems to know everyone. Make sure you ask him for reccomendations when you are looking for things to do. We felt very welcome and comfortable during our stay. The space was bright and well maintained. The size of the kitchen was great and you would have no problem doing all your meals there but Neptune beach has some excellent restaurants just a short 15 minute walk away. Great food and the best margaritas anywhere. A popular farmers market is just a few blocks away on Saturdays and there is also thiving art and concert scene in the area. We loved this place.
