About the property

6 bedroom, 6 bath 1 block to the beach!

The Fig Tree Inn was previously run as a Bed and Breakfast; however, we now offer it as a whole house vacation rental. We have retained the B&B feel and charm so every bedroom, 6 of them, has a theme and your own bathroom, yes that's 6, and the common areas beg for gatherings or relaxing together. The Inn is great for your family getaway, girls weekend, golf retreat or any other reason you may need to get away. The first floor has 2 bedrooms. The Seaside room with a King size bed and walk-in shower and the Nautical Room with a Queen size bed and tub/shower combo. The living area, dining porch and kitchen are also on the first floor. The second floor, accessed through an outside entrance, has 4 bedrooms. The Coral Reef and Pelican rooms with King size beds and shower/tub combos, the Sand Dollar room with a King size bed and jacuzzi tub and finally the Palm room with 2 double beds and a shower/tub combo. Each bedroom has a TV for relaxing after a long day of fun. The kitchen is fully equipped and has a deluxe 6 burner/double oven gas stove. There is ample parking and lots of outside areas to enjoy the beach breeze or walk the block to feel the sand between your toes. The Inn is located within walking distance to shops, restaurants, the Pier and great nightlife spots. Take a look and picture yourself in this relaxing setting in beautiful Jacksonville Beach.

About Lori Watson

Native to Jacksonville with a few years off for good behavior, we feel Jacksonville is the best place to live or at least vacation! We turned "The Little Beach House" into a vacation rental in 2012 and found such a need, we decided to try our hand at a Bed and Breakfast. We have had so many people express the desire to enjoy the Inn for large gatherings that we decided to offer the Inn as a whole house vacation rental. We have updated all the common areas and made it a very welcoming and relaxing environment.

Lori Watson purchased this house in 2013

Why Lori Watson chose Beaches

The Fig Tree Inn is a very comfortable old Florida Beach Cottage with all the updated amenities of home. You can enjoy the front porch for feeling the beach breezes or any of the other outside areas for group entertainment. You're only 1 block to the beach and within walking distance to many of the local restaurants should you want a little break from cooking! If you are visiting during any of the festivals, those are only 4 blocks away and you are always just a short walk to the cool shops in the area and local nightlife spots. We have ample parking; however, once you arrive you can keep the car parked if you prefer not to drive!

What makes this house unique

You will feel at home the minute you walk in the front door! The character and charm of this 1915 Cedar Shake Shingle Beach house is shown in every detail. You will also have plenty of bedrooms for a large family vacation or to share with friends for a fun getaway. Check us out. You'll be glad you found one of Jacksonville Beach's best keep secrets!

A six bedroom, six bathroom beach house, just what we wanted.

  • 5 of 5

A six bedroom, six bathroom beach house, just what we wanted. It came equipped with more than we needed, VERY clean. Safe, secure, and had good vibes. We would rent it again. Thank you, Lori.

Nice place to house a big group!

  • 4 of 5

Love the charm of the old beach house. It would have been nice to know the road in front of the house was under construction. Cleaning service could do a better job. Otherwise, no complaints.

Great space for our long weekend celebrating birthdays with family and friends!

  • 5 of 5

All bedrooms had privacy and own bathrooms. Kitchen was well equipped and stove was large enough for preparing meals for 12 easily. Outdoor seating galore and plenty of parking. The only negative comment (and this is not a big deal-just our preference) was there was only limited indoor seating for eating. Would love to return and will recommend to others looking for a large home to accommodate a group of family and friends.

Fantastic B&B-like house

  • 5 of 5

We highly recommend Fig Tree for a big group. With 6 bedrooms, each with a bath, it was perfect for our large group. It's a former B&B with a large kitchen and patio area where a dozen adults could dine together easily. Nice location just a block from the beach. The owner was great and we hope to return.
