We enjoyed very much our stay at the apartment. Just perfect for out needs.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed very much our stay at the apartment. It was just perfect for our needs. The facilities were just great (indoor pool, outdoor pool, laundry and driers, internet, cable tv, security protected parking, yard, terrace and more). We even had the company of a most loving cat at the terrace (and his friends), who expected all visitors to scratch his belly any time he wanted.

Sarah and Damir are the most wonderful owners of the apartment, with whom we kept in contact anytime needed. Their uncle who lives at the apartment complex also was most kind in helping with anything needed.

We recommend Sarah and Damir's apartment... unconditionally!... 8-).

Great location for exploring Jacksonville

  • 4 of 5

We are moving to Jax, so 3 of us stayed here to house hunt. The condo is centrally located, so it was easy to get around. True, the neighborhood isn't the prettiest. But, the complex is gated and the condo is clean and nicely decorated. My daughter loved the pool! The French Pantry is very close and the food is to die for! Sarah was easy to deal with. Highly recommend and would stay again. Thanks, Sarah!

Feels right at home!

  • 5 of 5

My experience during my stay was simply relaxing. After a long day of cruising through Jax, my girlfriend and I always looked forward to going home. The community was peaceful, and the indoor pool gave me a sense of outdoor (pay the pool a visit and you will understand) I definitely look forward to staying again soon.

Comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this condo for a month when my hubby and I relocated to Jacksonville. We used this time to be able to find a more permanent apartment without rushing into anything. The owner was very responsive and a joy to work with. I think she really cares if you are comfortable in her place.

And the apartment is comfortable, even for a stay as long as ours was. It was very clean upon check in, and well equipped. There was enough kitchenware and servingware to cook your own meals easily. Only negative comment is the same as a previous reviewer- larger silverware please- it's like they were child sized.

And I must say I agree with a previous review that the patio area was a disappointment-there was so much rain when we were there that it was extremely water logged and over grown. And yes, there are lots of cats that suddenly appear. That area was just not as clean and tidy as the apartment itself, maybe because the cleaners don't service it.

The complex itself is a bit worn down, but we used the indoor pool several times and it was spotlessly clean, and we had the place to ourselves. I can understand what others were mentioning about the neighborhood, but I never felt unsafe. It's just not the most picturesque part of Jacksonville. It is a quick ride to the beaches however from that part of town.

All in all, it served our needs very well.
