About Susan Sanders

As a native Floridian, I'm very aware of what visitors to the beach are expecting from a rental unit. The townhome is stocked with everything you need to sunbathe, shell collect & even something to do for the kids on a rainy day. I enjoy working with my guests and apparently have a real knack for knowing what makes a great rental and memorable vacation for my guests! I have owned an advertising agency for over 25 years and it really comes in handy when marketing my weekly beach rentals.

Susan Sanders purchased this townhome in 2001

Why Susan Sanders chose Florida

I began renting my first 3 bedroom/3 bath unit in 2009. I chose this location because of the proximity to the beach, restaurants and the layout of the town homes. The tri-level unit allows people to get away from each other if privacy is needed but the common living/kitchen area on the main level still allows a family or group to gather together in one room as well. I pride myself in making sure my units are well furnished and sparkling clean!

What makes this townhome unique

The townhomes are located behind a 5 story condo building that provides some of the most private beach settings in the Jacksonville Beach area. You can easily walk to Ponte Vedra Beach on the sand and not pass all that many people. While it's not totally secluded, it's private enough to have plenty of room to sunbathe, surf and even surf fish if you like. The wireless internet, DVD and HDTV (in every room) and the book & movie collection make your visit as convenient as possible. My goal was to allow people to spend their vacation money on food and drink... instead of having to buy chairs, towels, umbrellas... only to have to leave them behind on their flight home. My hope is that the families and couples enjoy the place and that they'll come back year after year.

We had a great time!!!

  • 5 of 5

Susan was a pleasure to work with. She responded very quickly to any email sent. I could not figure out how to use the wifi the first day, and Susan replied right away to help. When we got there the place was very clean and well maintained. There was every little thing that you can imagine from hair dryers in each bathroom to a stock of dvds to watch. Susan thought of the little touches, too, like making sure there was hand soap, shampoo, toilet paper (with extra) and towels ready to go in each bathroom. It took us about 30 minutes to unpack and decide what we were going to do next! The bikes really came in handy because there were days where my husband would take some of the kids on one trip (like to Orlando) and I would keep the other kids with me (we have four children). There was plenty of room for my four kids, my husband and I to relax and not feel cramped. We cooked a lot in the condo and there are plenty of pots, pans and utensils for cooking. I really liked our location because we had the beach close by and yet we could bike to restaurants and stores. Would definitely recommend this condo to others!!

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in unit 1 with an infant and a 4 year old. Our visit was wonderful and we loved staying there. This place has everything you could want and more. The beach was really nice and we appreciated being able to walk to so many restaurants. Susan is easy to work with and incredibly accommodating. We will be back as soon as we can :)

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the kind words, Noah. I'm so glad you and your family had a relaxing time and felt like the beach was easy to get to... that's why I have that little beach cart available for everyone's use. I provide the chairs, umbrellas, toys and towels to make sure my guests don't have to go out and purchase those things when they arrive, only to leave them behind if they flew in! Everyone also seems to enjoy how easy it is to walk to the nearby restaurants and shopping. Hopefully the little amenities and extra touches help, too! Please come back, I'd love to host you again. Susan

Happy New Year at the Beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at the townhouse over Christmas vacation. Nice bicycles for a short ride to the pier, dining and shopping. We also took longer rides through quiet neighborhoods as long as you wanted ride. Sitting on the balcony there were lots of walkers, bikers, and skaters if you like to people watch. Great location, and a short walk to the beach. Very nice to have bathrooms with each bedroom, and a fully stocked kitchen and laundry.

Family week vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the condo on Jax beach. The pictures are exactly how the unit looks in person. The attention to details was great, beach chairs, etc. Really all you need is a bathing suit and sunscreen ! Susan has thought of everything. We spent 1 week at condo with our 14yrd old daughter and my in laws. We all had seperate quarters and bathrooms and felt the condo was quite spacious. It is centrally located , just 2 miles to pier( beach morning runs were great) and in walking distance to Salt Life restaurant( one of our favorite restaurants along with Ellens for breakfast or Bagel world )

we are looking forward to another trip to the condo!
