I am the property manager, the owner is a wonderful and talented person, her and her husband made this the very special home that it is today. As for me, I am a native of the Jacksonville Beaches / Ponte Vedra Beach. I my teenage years I was a lifeguard and a member of the American Red Cross Volunteer Life Saving Corp, celebrating the 100th Anniversary in 2012. My parents owned a Hotel in Jacksonville Beach also in my teen years, I got to live on the ocean then and a few years later at the life guard station. I LOVED, and still do the beach AND the hospitity business! After 18 years as an executive in the seafood business (the ocean again), I became a Realtor, owned and managed a RE/MAX Office, then an opportunity to get back to my first love, the hospitality business this time as a manager of vacation rental homes. It is so much more fun than the traditional real estate business.

VacationQuest.com Beach Homes purchased this house in 1996

This home has everything that you need for a fun vacation, ALL bedrooms and the living room have LARGE Flat Screen TV's with Premium Comcast Cable and HIGH Speed Internet, with Comcast's Super-fast new model with built in WIFI If you must have a bedroom with Great ocean views and a huge bath, this one IS FOR YOU. The entire common living areas have great ocean views and a fantastic deck with lots of space both in and out of the sun.

This home has so many artistic details that are too many to notice at first. You will continue to discover new details as your stay continues. Of course the amazing views, the ocean and beach is like a new painting that constantly changes. Just have a seat in the living room or the deck, and just take it all in at a price that is kind your the wallet. The perfect getaway with friends or a private romantic retreat. It is all here at ArtSea Oceanfront Beach Cottage.

Why the name? As soon as you walk in the door, you WILL understand. As soon as we saw it; right then, at that moment everyone knew this would be the 'The ArtSea Beach Cottage'

CUTEST CABIN--JUST A FEW DRAWBACKS

  • 3 of 5
House is cute with beachy decor. Views are wonderful! However, there are a few drawbacks. 1. Kitchen table only seats two people. 2.Walkway from kitchen to garage has no rail and could easily pose a safety issue. 3. The grass was not mowed (potentially hiding critters) and landscaping is bare.
4. Rusty ac unit and rusty beach furniture left on premises
5. Tv's in bedrooms not hooked up and/or no remotes
6. Smelly carpet in master bedroom
7. Listing on VRBO needs to reveal no direct access to beach. I only found out by accident when we found the house on Google earth.By then , I had already paid

Owner's Response: We appreciate honest objective reviews because we strive for perfection and we are always looking for ways to improve our properties and our management services. YES, all of the items that were mentioned have been addressed long ago. Sometimes, I must wonder about a person's motives when only a week prior the guests wanted to stay at this property next August, BUT with the last minute discount that was received on the prior stay. After explaining that we cannot give large last minute discounts 6 months in advance, suddenly our property has "just a few drawbacks".
Item 1 Table sits only 2 people: If you look under the tablecloth you will find that the table extends to twice the current size, plenty of space for 4 adults.
Item 2 no rail, this has been addressed
Item 3 Needs Mowing: We are in the mist of new landscaping, but not with grass that would require an irrigation system. We are working on landscaping that does not use up our natural resources. When it is complete, we will post new pictures. The main work is to be done in the spring with wild flowers and butterfly gardens.
Item 4 Rusty A/C: The property had just had a brand new A/C System installed. The company did remove the old unit after the extended warranty people inspected the old unit.
Item 5 TV's: This property has brand new large HDTV's in both bedrooms and the living room. All of the TV's have extended premium channels and the living room TV has a DVR! I think is very nice, as well as above and beyond. My prior maintenance man let me think that he did hook up the cable and plug it in, I would have scheduled him to make a special trip had I known sooner. All the TV's have remotes, I'll not sure what that is about.
6. The carpet had been professionally cleaned, I didn't notice a smell, but I had the company to re-clean it anyway.
7. The public access is one house over. We never said it had direct access to the beach. I am from Jacksonville Beach where the steps to the beach are at least one city block apart. But, after the guest mentioned that they thought there was an access directly behind the home. Back in late August I revised the rental agreement, it is in BOLD print at the beginning of the agreement so it cannot be missed. We certainly do NOT want to mislead anyone.
I hope that I covered all of the items. We truly always are looking to improve our properties. Thank you, Daryl Manager

WE DIDN'T WANT TO LEAVE!

We Didn't Want to Leave!
  • 4 of 5
As soon as I saw the view from the porch I knew that I would never want to leave. We just got back from our weekend at the ArtSea & loved it! Furnishings were beautifully done but nothing compared to the view from the back porch! The ocean in all it's glory, the sound of the waves crashing on the shore outside of our bedroom, who could ask for more? I wish I that I could give the place 5 stars but there were some things that were lacking.
There was a Jacuzzi tub but it didn't work & had been really looking forward to it. The stopper for the drain didn't work either. There were no outside lights for the back so it was difficult to walk the dog when not being able to see. The kitchen lacked some essentials such as plastic wrap, food storage bags & foil. Don't worry there is still plenty of positives to make this the place to go to.
My favorite part was the window seat, of course, it would have been perfect if it had been on the other side facing the ocean but, oh well, can't have everything. I loved that when we got there neither of us turned on the TV for hours; that is very unusual for us. But we had the greatest view in the world. The decorating of the house is just gorgeous, beachy colors and beach-themed touches added to the feeling of being at the beach greatly. Kitchen was very well-appointed with just about everything you could think of! I loved that there were 2 types of coffee makers, a regular one and a Keurig. I was just going to use the regular one but decided to be daring & try the Keurig. I didn't like that someone had left a Kpac in the machine but, oh well!
The bed was so comfortable & the linens and were top-notch. The towels as my husband stated, actually dried you off. The shower off of the master bedroom was fantastic, done with riverstone and so huge that both my husband & I were able to shower at the same time after coming in off of the beach. Speaking of the beach, it was right there! All we had to do was walk next door & they were the steps. There is an outdoor shower but there & the shower. There were 4 knobs in the shower & we couldn't figure which ones belonged to which shower head! As we were getting ready to leave I found a list of directives for the place but they were too late to do me any good. The property was clean, somewhat but I did find a bottle cap that someone had left sitting around. There could be better chairs to take to the beach, ones there were pretty rusty. We will be returning though!

Owner's Response: Thank YOU very much for the review! We appreciate you taking time to write your review. You sure had many great comments. We always try for 5 Stars, thanks for letting us know what we needed to do to get there! I am sure that the next time you come to ArtSea Beach Cottage, that we will go from 4 to 5 Stars! Thanks for reporting the Jacuzzi tub problem. The pump is ordered for the Jacuzzi and will be up and running by tomorrow. We also have brand new light fixtures in the back of the home. During "Turtle Season" the lights will be low watt yellow lights, but it will be perfect for walking your dog in the yard. Thank YOU very much for all of the very kind comments! We work very hard to have our homes in perfect condition and service.

We truly appreciate all of your comments and we look forward to you being our guests again very soon! Sincerely, The Vacation Quest Beach Home Rentals Team

JACKSONVILLE TRIP 1ST PART OF JANUARY

  • 4 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay. The condo was great! If I had one thing I would recommend is that you have better directions on how TV's work in the condo. Also, maybe get a splitter to allow the Dish system to work in the master bedroom.

Whenever we go back to that area, we would love to stay at your place again.
