About the property

3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 6

Just steps from the ocean, with splendid views of the sea, sky, and dunes, sits Golden Star Lower Level, a spacious ground-floor flat with a charming Florida room, 3 beds and baths, and a full living and dining area. It's your ideal Jacksonville getaway!

Located just beyond the dunes, this 3-storey Spanish-style house has completely separate entryways for the lower level. From the street, a short exterior flight of stairs takes you in; from the grassy yard overlooking the beach, a door leads right into the Florida room. (The upper level of Golden Star, as well as the entire house, is also available for rental on this site.)

At once you find yourself in a pastel-hued, spacious villa with cool tiled floors, new furnishings, and a sense of quiet and calm. This is not your grandparents' beach house: every room is thoughtfully decorated and furnished with modern electronics as well as comfy couches and chairs. There are no fewer than 3 living spaces here for your group to enjoy: the Florida room with its ocean views and island decor; the family room with a small game table and plenty of floor space for toys; and the formal living room with large TV, relaxing recliners, and decorative fireplace (not to mention great beach views!).

When the group returns from a day of splashing in the waves, soaking up the sun, and enjoying the white sands of Jacksonville Beach, whip up a quick dinner in the fully stocked kitchen at Golden Star. All you bring is groceries: our kitchen is equipped with cookware, dishes, utensils, and appliances both large and small! A long counter makes a perfect bar or chopping station for your sous-chefs, and the spare work area (with sink!) really comes in handy when multiple chefs are in the kitchen. Whether you want to prepare a Meunier sauce for that fresh-caught fish or simply throw together some mac 'n cheese for the kids, you'll love using this kitchen!

And when it's time to eat, the big table in the dining area easily seats the whole group, with the long counter doubling as a buffet table! After the meal is finished, clear the table for games and cards and enjoy an evening "in" with your favorite people in the world!

At some point, you will have to go to bed, and fortunately, the comfortable bedrooms at Golden Star make retiring for the night pure bliss. The master suite is palatial here, with a king-sized bed, a bowed alcove with 3 long windows providing a panoramic view of the ocean, your own TV, and plenty of closet and floor space. There's ample room in here to set up a pack 'n play for a baby or a cot for a toddler who prefers to sleep in a room with Mommy and Daddy when away from home. And the en-suite bath is a treat, featuring a deep soaking tub, separate walk-in shower, and dual vanities. No bumping elbows during the morning rush to get out of the house and back down to the beach!

The second bedroom at Golden Star is a pleasure as well, with a queen-sized bed, big window, wicker accessories, and plenty of space. A second full bathroom, with both a shower and tub option, is convenient to this room.

For the kids or singles traveling with you, the third bedroom offers 2 twin-sized beds beside a huge window. There is a third bathroom just right for the occupants of this room, with tub and shower option. And remember, all linens and towel sets are provided for you at Golden Star, along with a washer and dryer. Pack light for this trip!

But the best part of Golden Star isn't any one particular room -- it's the location. A wooden boardwalk leads you almost from your door down to the sparkling sands of Jacksonville Beach, where all the fun of a family-friendly beach await you. Surfing, boogie-boarding, sunbathing, beachcombing, bocce-balling and kite-flying are just a few of the activities awaiting you. The sunrises are magnificent on this beach, the nights are velvety warm with cooling breezes, and the livin' is easy! Come stay at Golden Star Lower Level next time you're in Jacksonville, and we predict you'll decide to make it an annual event!

Beautiful beach but vacation house could have been better

  • 3 of 5

The Beach was beautiful. The house was great EXCEPT the only door going to the beach was 50% blocked off and a sign saying please keep door closed! There are no windows that face the beach that can be opened to let the air in. The door that was blocked off was the exit to a demolished patio that was dug out, full of mud, exposed piping and stairs that were torn out. The trash cans outside were full of garbage smelling of fish and the listing agent called to see if they could show the house to a prospective buyer while we were there!

Overall the house is very nice and clean but the patio situation and call from the agent was annoying!

The Reunion

  • 5 of 5

i rented the lower level for a week. The place was gorgeous. Plenty of room, great location, walking distance to a lot of bars, restaurants and stores. The down side, very little cooking supplies. We bought a grill to cook and left it there for future renters. I would really suggest management take some kind of inventory and address the situation. But I would rent this house again, awesome place

Our rental property was outstanding

  • 5 of 5

This rental was outstanding from locating the property, engaging with Vacation Rental Pros, to the time we spent in this wonderful property, located on the beach. The property was very well equipped and very clean. Aside from being a beach front property, the location could not have been any better, close by to great shopping and many good eating establishments. My family and I are definitely considering returning to the same property next year.

Much Better Than Expected

  • 5 of 5

Everything was wonderful - from the size of the place to the views/proximity to restaurants to cleanliness. Vacation Pros were very responsive to a minor bathroom issue - slow flushing toilet. I'm not sure I would spread the word about this particular property - not sure I want the secret out. Vacation Pros were very helpfule and responsive throughout for all questions we had.

Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect property for our family. Very spacious and lots of living areas to accommodate the local family in Jacksonville when they came to visit. Right on the beach and very close to restaurants and shopping. Everything was extremely clean and it was well stocked with pots, pan, dishes, glassware, etc. Can't wait for us to come back and rent it again!
