Beaches Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

If you read in another part of the description indicating you can park anywhere, that is incorrect. It has been recently changed. Please look for the number 401 in the parking lot directly in front of the condo. You may park on the side of the property, this is public parking.This unit is located on the top floor, SE corner, of a 4-story, 23-unit condominium building with a wraparound balcony off the living room and Master bedroom.Fully stocked and furnished for your vacation!

The 2nd bedroom has a separate balcony with ocean views! The floorplan is split and very private. The unit is quiet except for the sound of ocean waves.

The unit views the newly developed downtown Jacksonville Beach and is a short commute to the Jax airport, Mayo Clinic,and 30 minutes to downtown Jacksonville.Less than 10 miles to the TPC @ Sawgrass/Home of PGA Tour, 40 minutes to Nation's Oldest City,St. Augustine, & the New World Golf Village.

The beach is quiet and family friendly although a short walk to nightlife and great restaurants. The fishing pier is about 6 blocks down the beach, and can be viewed from the balconies. All new windows, doors, railings, updated baths, and bedding. You'll love the location and keep coming back. Nice pool area...

About Lynn McWhirter

My sister, Gail, and we (Lynn & Jim) own the condo listing VRBO#115236, which is located on family friendly Jacksonville Beach, Florida. We grew up here and live here, which makes owning a vacation rental easy to manage. We wanted to be able to enjoy the beach ourselves, and share the 'salt life' with others. We found the perfect condo at Beachdrifter, what we feel is an ideal beach location on a quiet stretch of beach and walking distance to the pier, Seawalk Pavilion for concerts, and plenty of restaurants and nightlife...We hope you will find what others have by renting from us, a wonderful getaway from hectic living, and keep coming back to make memories..Give us a try, you will not be sorry!! Sincerely, Lynn McWhirter-Neeson, Gail McWhirter, and Jim Neeson.

Lynn McWhirter purchased this condo in 2006

Why Lynn McWhirter chose Florida

We know there are lots of condos from you to choose from but we feel our unit offers 950 square feet with a desirable floor plan. The bedrooms and baths are split so ideal for 2 couples or families. Each bedroom has its own balcony and bath. We take pride in ensuring your stay is memorable and enjoyable!

What makes this condo unique

Our end unit is located by the stairs if you want to exit quickly and just down the corridor from the elevator. The building is small (23 units) and has many owner occupants which maintains a homelike feel for the property. We replaced our central air conditioning unit Sept 2012, have updated our furnishings in LR and DR (2013) and have flat screens TV's in both bedrooms and LR. We have Wifi access and a nice reading library for you to enjoy.

Fantastic Location but needs updating

  • 3 of 5

The location of this condo is perfect. I am originally from this area and I come back often. I have stayed at different condos all along Jax Beach so trust me on the location. It is top corner with views to the south and is close enough to walk to the pier but quiet and not overly crowded. The condo itself needs some maintenance and updating. I had maintenance and housekeeping issues during our stay but did not relay that to the owners until afterward. I was pleasantly surprised to see how quickly they responded to my concerns. Because of the issues I had experienced, I had decided I would not stay here again, but since they responded so quickly and indicated they would remedy the problems and seemed genuinely concerned, I would consider staying again. The pool is nice and clean and the area around it is well kept and best of all, you can see the ocean while standing in the pool area. (Most views are blocked by the dunes). Oddly though, there is no pool furniture at all. A permanent resident told me they were considering doing something about that so hopefully they do. There is an outside bathroom but it needs some serious work. The condo is nice size and the views are spectacular. The beds are comfortable. Surprisingly the large furniture in the living room does not crowd the space. It is actually roomy and comfortable. Do not plan on watching any television here as the tv's are pretty much worthless and you can't get any channels anyway. They do have a dvd player but we didn't try it. There is a bike rental store a couple of blocks away and they are fabulous. They even include bike locks. (Champion Cycling and Fitness) You can bike or walk to tons of restaurants, bars and shops. Even though there is no security here, it is in a pretty safe area. I did have some difficulty getting the garage door opener from the owner but I once I got it, life was good again. Covered parking is usually a deal breaker for me but that might not matter to the average visitor.

The condo is well appointed and maintained... great location and view!

  • 5 of 5

We highly recommend this condo. It was perfect for our family of four. The two twin beds in the second bedroom were perfect for our teenaged son and daughter to share. The kitchen is well appointed with everything we needed. We enjoyed the balcony. We picked Jax Beach because my husband is from Jax. It would have been nice to have an extra pair of hand towels to put out for family that visited. It was a great week. Great location! We also appreciated having the beach umbrella and chairs. We'll be back!

Awesome Beach Vacay Condo

  • 4 of 5

This place was perfect for my family of 4. Everything we needed and more was provided. The instructions for everything need updating as it was noted that parking spots were not reserved unless "Reserved" was written, but they were. Also, wifi was not as noted in the house instructions (either that or it wasn't working. We were not too concerned though since we didn't use it much and never contacted the home owner to address it). The linens were great. The appliances were a bit dated, but we didn't cook much and only ran the dish washer once (dishwasher is in sore need of updating). Elevator was key as this condo is on the top floor. Overall wonderful place. Would definitely stay here again on our next trip.

Exceeded our Expectations

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for us. It was clean and everything we could have needed was available to us. And the location!! What can I say. The views of the ocean as far as you could see (and we could walk), the sounds of the waves and the lovely breeze. Heavenly!! Lynn was so easy to communicate with, very prompt with any questions. I would highly recommend this property. We had a wonderful time.

Rental with a great view of Jax Beach!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was a great place to stay for our long weekend. There were four of us staying in Jacksonville to visit relatives, and this place was in the right area to get to different Jax areas. The condo had all the required elements for our stay...the kitchen was equipped properly, the bedrooms were comfortable, the bathrooms were decorated nicely and had enough towels and plenty of hot water. But the best part of the condo was the beach view! The morning sun rose right in front of us and you could see up and down the beach for a long way!

One of our daily to dos was a walk up and down the beach and on the weekends there was plenty going on. Just off the beach near the pier were plenty of bars and restaurants, and we enjoyed a couple of them, especially during happy hour. The condo came with chairs and bogey boards that we used on the beach which is a very short walk from he condo! Being to lay out on the beach and know your place is a short trip away a was a nice feeling.

This rental is in a great location and you can not beat the views. We would definitely use this condo again on future visits to Jacksonville!

Adorable place with the perfect location!

  • 4 of 5

This condo was very cute with beachy decor and a fantastic front facing view of the ocean! We so enjoyed our stay and found the condo to be comfortable and sufficiently stocked. I especially enjoyed the decks!! Great location. Walking distance to the pier and plenty of places to eat and drink. I would definitely book this place again!
