Wonderful vacation at the beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time and enjoyed our visit to Jim and Judy's beach home. As advertised, it was very close to the beach and the apartment was clean and comfortable. The patio was great for early morning coffee and star gazing in the evening with a nice breeze coming off the ocean. Their location made it very convenient for outings in the historic San Fernandino Beach area and Fort Clinch. Big thanks also from Champ, our pup, for the pet friendly place and pet friendly beach. He had a ball on his first trip to the beach. Enjoyed our dinner with Jim and Judy and getting to know some of their neighbors during our short visit. Hope to come back down the road!

Amazing family Vacation!! Beach Oasis

  • 5 of 5

Nothing but good things to say about our lovely stay at Judy and Jims beach oasis!

We were given complete privacy from our gracious hosts, but still with the security of knowing that they were right upstairs and we had their #'s, should we need them.

Inside the apartment was very clean, air-conditioned, and nicely decorated. A entire binder full of menus and guide books was in the living room. Towels, a few beach chairs and extra bedding were all provided, and even a large selection of family board games in one of the closets! The kitchen had everything we needed to bring food took cook for ourselves, and we enjoyed a lovely fresh seafood meal!

The walk to the beach was perfect- a beach blanket and a good book, just across the board walk was a perfect way to enjoy the sunrise in the mornings. One of the days of our stay, we chose to have a full day at the beach sunbathing, and opted to drive *3 minutes* down the road to a part of the beach with "smoother" sand. The rest of the time "their" beach was perfect for looking for seashells and sharks teeth(it is absolutely covered!!), going for longs walks, and generally enjoying a more "private" beach.

At night time, we discovered, to our excitment, that we hit the jackpot on timing, as bio-luminesent bacteria(or mabye bugs?) were present during that time of the year, and as you brushed your hand through the sand, it sparkled/glowed in the moonlight! We spent several nights staying at the beach untill 1-3 am, still feeling very safe and secure!

We also really enjoyed walking around the shops downtown, only a 10 minute drive!

We did meet our hosts a few times in passing, but as we were leaving our last morning, we really had a chance to introduce ourselves! When we inquired about booking for the end of december, Judy and Jim were sorry to say they were already booked. It was a understandable situation, and we just left it at that. Right before we left, Jim found us- they had both been trying to actually figure out if they knew anyone close by with openings, and opted to introduce us to said friend right there and then!! They went above and beyond to help us find a place for our next vacation, even though it wasn't with them!

And finally, the real kicker- after driving two hours to get home, realizing I left my car keys and purse, And a panicked phone call to Ms. Judy, they found said items, and offered to mail it to us, no issues! Such a relief and kindness!!!

If I could give more stars, I would!

Perfect In Every Way

  • 5 of 5

The best vacation ever! We visited after Labor Day when the crowds were gone, and many times we had the beach all to ourselves. The rental was immaculate and exactly as advertised. Everything is there except your beach towel and bathing suit. We visited with 2 Westies and they had a great time on the beach and meeting all of the neighbors. Jim and Judy are absolutely awesome hosts!! We will definitely be back!
