About George and Jennifer Lomax

My husband and I have owned this property for 25 years and it was built by his great-grandparents in 1926. I am a retired high school teacher and my husband still works in the medical field full time. In the past we have rented both the upstairs and downstairs apartments to full time tenants but after some major renovations we decided to try our hand at renting out the lower unit short term as a vacation rental home and keeping the upper unit vacant for personal use. After almost two years on VRBO we can honestly say we've truly enjoyed the experience and have met some great people.

George and Jennifer Lomax purchased this house in 1990

Why George and Jennifer Lomax chose Beaches

My husband's great-grandparents had the house built in the 1920's when Jacksonville Beach was known as Pablo Beach. He still has fond memories of summer vacations with aunts, uncles, cousins and Gramma at 'the Beachhouse' when he was growing up.

What makes this house unique

We live close by in Jacksonville and are available if we are needed. The views from the place are great and the distance to the beach can't be beat! Fun,Sun,Sand and Surf. What more can be said?

Exactly as advertised

  • 5 of 5

Very clean, well stocked with everything a beach house should have. Great location with plenty of parking for guest's. Very private unless people upstairs. The only problem we had was unable to use grill after dark due to no lighting. Will stay here again in the future!!!

Perfect Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this home for 15 nights. It was the perfect little beach house for the two of us. Can comfortably sleep 4. Home is clean and has everything you will need. The location is steps away from the beach and a short walk to many great restaurants. The street is quiet with great neighbors. I would highly recommend this home for anyone looking for a home on JAX Beach.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This property was everything that was promised. It is close to the beach, very clean and tidy and well laid out. The kitchen was well equipped with all major and small appliances, as well as a variety of spices in the cupboard. There were also plenty of bath, and beach towels, face cloths, hand towels, and drying clothes. There were also plenty of games and books available. We would unreservedly recommend this unit to any and all of our friends and acquaintances who were planning to stay in this area of Florida.

8th avenue and 1st street on Jacksonville beach

  • 5 of 5

We had been here previously but the accommodations are excellent. Location is fantastic as indicated "steps from the beach" and the property was immaculately maintained. Ideal for a 2 couples or a family of 4. Unfortunately the weather didn't cooperate but we were able to play a few board games "trivial pursuit" (Canadian) and outplayed out adult son. In any event, i'd recommend this location to anyone rain or shine. We'll be back. Merci, Richard

Perfect little beach house in perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This past July was our second time staying at this perfect little beach cottage. It's just the right size for me, my husband and our 5 year old twins but what we really like is that the house is immaculately clean and beautifully decorated. It's clear the owner loves this house and wants others to enjoy it. The location is also fantastic. It is located across the (very narrow) street from the beach and many grocery stores and restaurants are within just a few minutes drive. The house is stocked with beach towels, chairs and umbrellas as well as bikes. It also has a great outdoor shower and gas grill (which we put to good use). Jenny Lomax, the owner, is very responsive and easy to work with. I'm a native of Jacksonville and I know we will stay at this house again whenever we return.

Located within walking distance of many restaurants. Great fishing and surfing down the block at the Jacksonville Beach Pier. During the summer season watch free movies and concerts outside at the Seawalk Pavilion band shell. Take a scenic bike ride. Enjoy the great outdoors while hiking or biking through Katherine Abbey Hanna State Park,a 15 minute drive north. Head 30 minutes south to historic St.Augustine, the nations oldest city. Golfers have a 10 minute drive to TPC Sawgrass (home of the annual PGA Tour Players Championship)and it's world renowned courses. 15 minutes to Mayport Naval Station, 30 minutes to Amelia using the Mayport Ferry,a little over an hour to Daytona and two hours to Disney World. Only 10 minutes to the Mayo Clinic.
