About Nina Howell
My name is Nina Howell. My family and I have resided in Jacksonville Florida for 20 years. We traded the snow and boots in Wva to sunshine and flip flops in Florida. We haven't looked back. Jacksonville Beach is such a hidden gem. It is not heavily marketed as a tourist destination. It is home to festivals, breweries, great cuisine and Gods handiwork-the ocean.. I hope you enjoy Jacksonville as much as we do.. May God bless you and your family.
Nina Howell purchased this Townhome in 2017
Why Nina Howell chose Beaches
The townhome is located in the perfect location-Only four blocks to the ocean and right behind restaurants. The townhome is 3 stories and featured two separate living areas so for large groups it is deal for everyone to have their own privacy..
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
We liked the house and the beachy decor. It was convenient to various locations. We enjoyed our stay in Jacksonville Beach.
Thank you for Choosing my home. I hope you enjoyed your stay Please come back and visit.
OK, not spectacular
The condo was adequate. There were five girls for the Donna Marathon and it was adequate. Lots of noise (music) until 11 pm the first night which we did not appreciate since we needed to be up early for marathon
Limited number of towels, no front porch light or light in entraway which is difficult when having food delivered.
Downstairs bedroom is a little creepy and only has a couch, not a bed
Decor was great and location, for us, was perfect.
Perfect for our family!
The home and location were perfect for our family reunion. Plenty of space for 7 of us with the open living room/kitchen area a warm gathering space to catch up. The location - just a couple of blocks from the beach and near restaurants was convenient and easy. Overall - the perfect spot for our gathering!
Thank you so much for choosing my home.
You and your family we're wonderful house guests. Would love to have you come back and visit.
The perfect trip!
We came down to Florida with friends for the Florida Georgia game and this house was absolutely perfect! It was 12 of us staying in the house and everyone was comfortable. The house is super cute and the space is open for a large group. It’s right near the beach and a lot of places to eat too. Would definitely book again next time!
Thank you so much for your review. I'm glad you had a wonderful stay at my home. Please come back and visit
Great house, great location.
The location is great- walking distance to many restaurants, bars, and the beach. The house was clean and in order. Air conditioning worked great. Televisions had Netflix and cable access.
Thank you Kevin for staying at home at 9th Avenue North. I'm glad you enjoyed the home. Please come back and visit.
Air Conditioner Not Working - No Warning from Owner
Beware of dishonest owner. Home was as pictured and very clean, w/ great location, but was shocked when we arrived w/ the air conditioner broken on a 90+ degree day. I had seen a review earlier about it several weeks prior but owner indicated it was fixed. I’ve never had an issue w/ an owner being dishonest before.
Owner gave no warning, but did provide 2 portable units. Unfortunately, the placement was in both bathrooms and you were unable to close the doors; awkward w/ two families. When I contacted the owner, she not only didnt answer until after we left, but deflected by trying to critize our stay. Saying we didn’t follow “house rules” which is just untrue. Very unprofessional; and frankly shocked by this reaction.
When we arrived the home felt very warm and uncomfortable. My husband kept rearranging their portable units to keep the house cool; up and down flights of stairs. When we arrived the dryer on the bottom floor was on and vent was disconnected; giving out hot air. He fixed the dryer exhaust vent upon arrival and also had to taped up the patio door (which was damaged) so hot air wouldn’t escape, keeping the house cooler. This was all done on his vacation, w/ 4 children under the age of 6.
Owner tried to complain about our left trash, but provided no trash bags and her 2 large garbage containers were full. Mind you we only stayed 2 nights...not very long at all. We did however put all our the trash in a single location, easily accessible for clean up.
Owner also complained about our dishes to deflect the complaint. I did not see anything in the “check out instructions” about cleaning/putting dishes away and the dishwasher was left full when we arrived. We did have to move the portable unit over the kitchen sink, on a chair, to a window so more cold air could stay in. This set up made it a little challenging to do anything in the kitchen; esp the dishes.
I was upset about her not forewarning us, but understand she probably didn’t want to loose the profit. However I was honestly more upset about her response to our concerns more then anything.
I am so sorry you were disappointed with your stay. The AC went out and the technician ordered the part which was shipped to their Pensacola address versus their Florida address.
This created a delay.
Unfortunately I did not predict this so I could have shared with you prior.
I went out and purchased 1000.00 worth if portable AC units to ensure the temperature was comfortable. I went to house to clean and the house temp never went above 74.
I was surprised at the condition the home was left. There were dirty dishes in sink and on counter.
Trash bags left on floor. Wine bottles left on counter top.
Also someone left a cooler with kids stuff in it.
