This house is the perfect blend of relaxing retreat meets gathering place. Having traveled halfway around the globe from Hawaii with two toddlers, it was utterly refreshing to arrive and unwind in this huge beach house with all the amenities. The huge family room was great for doing it all - we could watch the big screen TV while the kids played with ample space, or eat at either of the two dining areas with the kids still in view, or open the french doors to let in the fresh air adjacent to the backyard pool area and grill out. It looks like an interior designer put it all together with decorative, yet personal little touches throughout the house. The owners really thought of it all when arranging this space and they are extremely kid-friendly with lots of kids amenities (crib, high chair, stroller, baby gate for stairs) and indoor and pool toys. And the pool has a great shallow ledge for the kids to play - this was definitely key for water play with little ones regarding safety! (Or just laying out in the sun too!)

We were in town visiting family so we had people over to visit from time to time. And because of the spacious floor plan, I could put the kids down for naps in the bedrooms of the original wing of the house while we entertained in the larger addition family room.

The beach was just a stone's throw walk across the main road, along with several great nearby restaurants and shops in walking and short driving distance (including the local spot Cinotti's Bakery - YUM!). Definitely a great location. The popular Atlantic/Neptune Beach town center was just a short drive in one direction, while the other popular St Johns Town Center was a quick drive in the opposite direction. This couldn't have been better centrally located!

This place was all we wanted and more…you could curl up with a book and relax in one of its little nooks or host an entertaining gathering and impress family and friends.

In addition to the house, the owners were a true pleasure to work with, always attentive and friendly and more than accommodating.

Thanks for an amazing experience and Aloha from Kauai, Hawaii!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to post your review! Our 30ft pool is truly family friendly with a shallow baby pool depth sun deck, with steps that descend to 3ft in the low end and gradually slopes to 9ft in the depth at the deep end. Several resort umbrellas and towering palms provide shade for all! We also have just added an outdoor surf surf shower to wash off the sand from a day at the beach!

Back Yard Oasis

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this beach house while on Spring Break with 4 adults and 5 kids and had plenty of space!! Went to the local beach a few times, but the kids were spoiled by the heated pool in the backyard. Beautiful and serene setting! Great for relaxing and enjoying the warm Florida sun! We had a minor issue with wifi, but the owner was quick to fix it remotely. I would highly recommend this house for a family vacation.

Owner's Response: Sean, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. I'm happy that your Team Building corporate weekend was a success! Our "Close to Everything" residential setting affords spacious private entertaining in our privacy fenced backyard oasis. We are a within a minutes walking distances to an eclectic assortment of "must visit" eateries and bars. You can visit everything Jax Beach has to offer within a short walk or five minute drive and "do it all"...from organic and big box supermarkets, micro brews , Korean BBQ, Irish & British pubs, fresh local seafood, Spanish tapas, gourmet pizza, you name it and it's within a 5 minute drive if not 5 minute walking. You are close to everything without living in the beach front commercial area. Literally the closest residential area outside of the commercial district. Our pool offers the best of both worlds allowing you to enjoy a day at the beach and entertain into the evening in our heated, LED pool lit pool. Landscaping and pool is serviced each week year round. Pool can be heated upon request. Many thanks for posting a review and best wishes! Sincerely, John Rodden Owner
