I say suitable for 2-12 years old but I do not have child locks on cabinet doors. This would be a call or responsibility of the parent(s).

My stay at Hal's place was great. The apartment was clean and quiet. Hal was a great host and was available to answer any questions. I will definitely return.

The house is in a great area of Jacksonville. Near the beach and plenty of activity. It's quiet enough to get some rest as well. The AC works great! I got a sliver on the flooring so wear your shoes. It's got a few things that could be improved but I think he's working on it all the time.

What an amazing getaway! Hal and his place are so incredibly amazing! Hal is a great communicator and even contacted us before check in to see if we had any special requests (or if he could pick things up for us from the grocery). We had a three hr drive before arriving so this was so nice of him! He also had lots of amazing recommendations on where to eat and things to do in the area. The apartment was also incredible! It's was so clean and spacious - just perfect. There were also some basics already there for us too: dishes, ice, soap, TP, towels etc. The area was just great too ....a small authentic beach community sandwiched between great beach touristy areas. It was just a GREAT vacation and made part by Hal's superior hospitality and his great home.

Response from Hal:
Kaylee and your family thank you so much for your staying here at the cottage by the beach. And thank you for donating some of the things you couldn't take back home with you. I try to make the experience for all my guests better by listening to suggestions and implementing them. So I replaced the pots and pans with Revereware, upgraded the sheets and have a new washer and dryer available now available with a shared covered outdoor patio and BBQ with ring toss. I am so looking forward to your stay next year or sooner. Thanks again so much. See you next time.

Hal's place is laid back and relaxed. He is very available and has great food suggestions. He even loaned me an old bike to be able to ride along with my sister and explore the fun shops and restaurants just north along a residential street. This isn't a fancy place, but very comfortable. The huge bonus is that it is a 5 minute walk from the beach and in an area not filled with high-rise hotels. Beautiful beach for walking or swimming. Very family friendly.
