Car: Not Necessary

Our beach is un-crowded allowing plenty of space that sets the scene for memories to last a lifetime. Spectacular sunrises greet you on your morning visit to the beach for coffee or stroll; occasionally the dolphins will meet you there. It is known for the flat open beach which makes it great for hanging out at the beach; walking or running, beachcombing and riding beach cruiser bicycles. South Jacksonville Beach is walking distance to Ponte Vedra Beach to the south and Jacksonville Beach Pier to the north. First Street, where our home is located, is the first street from the oceans edge, a small street with character and charm of a beach side community. Playing in the sand and surf a great way to spend your days, but the fun doesn't stop there! Our Townhome is just 15 blocks from Ponte Vedra and within walking distance of over 7 restaurants and shopping. Adventure Landing Theme and Water Park, bowling and many more activities is just 10 minutes from the home and is on the Beaches Express trolley route.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2015

About the owner: Thank you for your interest in our beautiful beachside townhome. We take great pride in offering our casual beach elegance accommodations to our guests. We have traveled a bit for business and pleasure across the US and in Europe, the Middle East and Asia. Because of the exposure to varied cultures, we have integrated our lessons learned about quality service and making travelers feel they are home. Our favorite place on the planet is right here in Jacksonville Beach. We have been married for 16 years, we have 5 children and 10 grandchildren. Joy grew up on a farm in south Arkansas and brings with her an excellent work ethic , good ole' southern hospitality and charm. Our vacation rental is a reflection of the same warmth and comfort of our own home. Joy attended high school in Star City, Arkansas and graduated from UofA, Fayetteville, AR. Following graduation Joy spent the majority of her professional career as a Human Resource Manager. Jim grew up in a military family, both his mother and father were WWII veterans. He grew up all over the world living wherever his parents were stationed. Jim graduated from New Mexico Military Institute in Roswell, New Mexico; Class of '65 High School and '67 Junior College. He was commissioned in 1967 as an Infantry officer serving in Vietnam and attending US Army Aviation Course. Following his military service Jim received a BA in Organizatinal Management from John Brown University, in Siloam Springs, AR. His corporate career was a "global experience" and as a business executive knows the meaning of service to customers and how to accommodate guests. You will enjoy his attention to detail and work ethic to make our vacation rental a great place for you to stay. Our goal is to make you think/feel our vacation rental is your "home away from home". We have tried to lighten your "load" by providing beach chairs, games, umbrella and other beach items We would love to have you be our guests in our home. Contact us soon
