Beach Suite w/ private entrance

House - Private room · Ocean Blvd, Atlantic Beach, FL 32233, United States

Only steps to pristine beach, lovely suite in flowering walled garden, quiet neighborhood; 5-min walk to popular Town Center for shops & restaurants. Bikes & beach needs provided; mini fridge, filtered water, coffee; breakfast first morning.

The Space

Guests rave about this lovely bedroom-bathroom suite above the three-car garage, which is a building apart from our home. The bed is queen-sized and comfortable. Spotless white berber carpet cushions the bedroom/sitting area, and the bathroom has a marble floor, sink and shower. Guests control the central heating/air conditioning to their preference. Interior stairs lead up to the space and can be accessed from an exterior door or from the enclosed garage.

If you are here for a while and can pull yourself away, a 40-minute car trip north to quaint Fernandina Beach is a fun trip and involves a historic drive-on ferry ride to cross the St. John's River to the next barrier island. The views of unspoiled wetlands, beaches and tree-lined roads along the way are spectacular!

A half day trip to St. Augustine, the oldest continuous city in the nation, is another beautiful 40-45 minute drive in the opposite direction.

We're a unique beach and town environment all within walking or biking distance. In all honesty, August is a hot month unless you are acclimated to the humidity. On the other hand, the beach, delightful swimming and ocean breezes add up to lovely weather most of the year. Just relax and enjoy.

Guest Access

A mini refrigerator and coffee maker/coffee are included.One men's bike and one women's bike with basket is provided and the streets of the neighborhood make for interesting biking. Beach chairs, beach towels, umbrella, etc., are also provided. Guests may park their car in the extra bay in the garage and will be given an automatic garage door opener to drive in.

Interaction with Guests

Interaction with guests include meeting upon arrival and departure. Guests may choose to access our walled garden or come and go privately via garage door. We are always available when needed and happy to answer questions and interact with guests, yet we're very respectful of guests' privacy and personal wishes.

The Neighborhood

We're located in a nice residential neighborhood, on a pedestrian street that runs parallel to the ocean. A walk from the suite to the beach is a matter of four or five minutes stroll. Atlantic Beach is the best in terms of beauty and room to indulge in Northeast Florida, The swimming is devine!

Atlantic Beach Town Center is an easy two-block stroll away, where you'll find just about anything you would expect in a beach community plus more. One Ocean Resort, a world class hotel, is located on the beach two blocks away from the suite. Check out their website for pictures of the beach and ocean.

Getting around

The stores, shops, and the restaurants of the Beaches Town Center are a short walk down the pedestrian street, about three blocks away. Many people ride bikes there, as well as to the nearby parks where bike racks are provided. A public trolly and bus stops within walking distance to access other communities.

Other Things to Note

My husband and I have lived in Atlantic Beach for decades and are more than happy to talk about things to do or other logistics.

  • Wow! What an amazing place. The space is perfect and we could not have asked for anything more. Hugh and Kathy were very welcoming hosts and provided us everything we needed. What they don't show you is how amazing their property is. We walked to dinner and starbucks. It was perfectly located. We will certainly be back.

  • Our stay in Kathy's Beach Suite was absolutely wonderful! The private entrance made our exploration of the cute Atlantic Beach community incredibly convenient. Kathy was helpful and quick to answer any questions we had. The beach is a block away!

  • What a most amazing time we had. My husband and i are both workaholics, and needed a well deserved break from it all. We chose this stay for many reasons, most importantly a block away from the beach… but were we surprised to arrive and see this house is so close to downtown shops and restaurants, we biked everywhere! The owners were so pleasant and respectful of our privacy while yet there whenever we needed them. I will be counting the days to return to paradise away from the beautiful life on Cape Cod!

  • Staying with Kathy and her husband was a wonderful experience. My wife and I could not have felt more welcome or comfortable during our stay. The house is minutes from the beach and there was even beach equipment included. 10 out of 10!

  • Clean - great location - very comfortable.

  • This was one of the most enjoyable stays my husband and I have had away from home!! The lodging was clean - no socks needed in this place:-) Having a garage to park in was an extra bonus. We were surprised with hot and cold beverages along with some fruit which was a nice touch. There are some amazing restaurants within walking distance and you are a five minute car ride from any chain store needed. The beautiful white sand beach is just a short walk away and the neighbors are all friendly! Kathy and Hugh were personable and very accommodating. My husband and I are already looking forward to our next stay!

  • My mother and aunt actually stayed at the beach suite and they absolutely loved it! They found it to be in the perfect location and walking distance to beach, town center and my house. I actually visited the beach suite and it was lovely inside, clean, with fantastic amenities. I certainly know my mom will be back to visit and stay with my dad as it's the perfect size for two people. Kathy and her husband were very welcoming and friendly - great hosts!

  • This accommodation is more beautiful than the pictures convey! My husband and I loved the upper room with the private bath. Everything was clean and fresh and beautiful! The location was fantastic! 2 blocks from the hub of activity in Atlantic Beach, and one block from the beach. Kathy let us use the bicycles and we biked everywhere ... everyday! It was fabulous to be free and independent. We felt part of the community as lots of people are biking around. Kathy & Hugh gave us privacy and helped us with small things that came up. They are nice and friendly and trustworthy. We really cannot say enough wonderful things about this venue and experience. We showed our other family members our room - they were staying at the nearby hotel - and they were in awe of the price, location, and beauty of this place. We hope to return again.

  • Kathy & Hugh were incredibly gracious hosts. The loft above their detached garage was beautifully decorated, clean, comfortable, and could not be located in a better location - 5 minute walk to the lively little downtown Atlantic Beach and right across the street from the beach with easy public access. In addition to the fine-hotel level of quality, they also provided access to, and use of, their private garage space. This was icing on the cake because parking is limited in the immediate area. Overall, this was an outstanding experience for my first airbnb stay. Thanks so much, Kathy & Hugh.

    October 2013
  • The beach suite was absolutely perfect! Kathy was so generous, extending her space, bikes, beach towels, beach hats, and even let us control the A/C! This place is ideal for those looking for a peaceful place to enjoy an endless beach and local restaurants and low key bars. We are coming back - what a beautiful spot!

About
I'm a lucky and happy person at this stage of my life. My children (two girls) are grown and married, I am retired from a real job, and my husband is finishing up the last five years of his. We like movies, dinner out, and traveling. I like active vacationing such as bike riding in some beautiful countryside. (The exercise justifies later indulgences.) When at home, let me have blue skies most of the time, beach walks, a little swimming, family, friends, my dog, and I'm a very happy person.
