About the property

2 Bedroom 2 Bath Sleeps 5, 2 Pools, 2 Hot Tubs and a Workout Room, Sauna

This is our beautiful 2 bedroom 2 bath beachfront condo located near the heart of Jacksonville Beach, Florida. Brand new in 2006 The LARGE balcony sits atop the Atlantic Ocean and can be accessed from both the living room and master bedroom. It has a very well equipped kitchen with stainless appliances and granite counter-tops. The dining room table can seat 8 (2 office chairs and additional folding chairs in garage) The living room and 2nd bedroom has a large flat screen tv. Master has a smaller flat screen tv. The building has a full-time resident manager on site. There is a fitness center with showers, sauna steam room, and 2 pools (an ocean-side pool and a pool on the back upper deck), both pools have hot tubs attached. We have chairs, umbrellas, bikes, surfboard, boogie board, beach towels, beach bags, kids plastic beach toys and more for your use stored in our one car garage.. I have just installed beautiful new wood floors throughout and painted so repeat renters will see a big change. Both bedrooms now have king sized beds (the master is actually 2 twin adjustable beds with remote controls that make up to look like a king (see photos) Everyone has loved them so far!

About Carol O'Donoghue

This is our Primary home (we rent it out when we are traveling) and we have it furnished and supplied it in that manner. (even China and crystal :) for your use. Our new Sealy Posturpedic memory foam bed (with dual controls) has been a big hit with vacationers; but the double ocean front balcony is their favorite. The entire unit has just had beautiful "real wood" wide plank floors installed Jan. 2016. So there is no carpet in the unit.

Carol O'Donoghue purchased this condo in 2006

Why Carol O'Donoghue chose Florida

Wonderful large oceanfront balcony with access from family room and from the Master Bedroom. Garage full of bikes, ocean toys, beach chairs and umbrellas for your use. Strictly Enforced - NO PETS are ever Allowed, and this is a strictly Non- Smoking Unit and complex. (no smoking on the balcony either) We are not young child/baby proof and this is a luxury condo with a majority of full time residents. Only a few units are rented out . We ask that 'if you have children' ....please ensure that they are always with you and carefully watched.

What makes this condo unique

2 pools, 2 hot-tubs (one oceanside), work out facility, sauna and steam room. The ocean views from just about anywhere in the condo are great; but just hanging out on our balcony is my favorite spot.

This condo is just as described. So spacious and beautiful! The furniture inside and out and the beds are SO COMFORTABLE! The complex is very safe and close to tons of restaurants and much to do and see. Super clean building, pools and hot tubs. Carol and Joel answer questions quickly. We had a PERFECT stay and will be back!

Wonderful condo with great location

  • 5 of 5

Lovely condo with impressive sunrise views on the beach. It's close to Neptune beach restaurants and has access to beach bikes beach toys and beach chairs that comes free with the condo so no need to rent anything. Management bent over backwards to be accommodating. Furnished great and also has comfy outdoor furniture on the large balcony overlooking ocean.

Okay place.

  • 2 of 5

We have travelled to Jacksonville every summer for the past 6 years and have stayed at a condo on the beach every time. We stayed in this same building last year so we were already familiar with the location and layout. We enjoy the view and the 2 pools especially the one on the 3rd floor. This could be a nice unit if there were simple things taken care of. It just seemed every time we turned around something else was not up to par. First off the owners live in this unit so I would think they would be aware of all the little things that need attention. First off don't even try showing in the master bathroom. It is impossible. The shower head is ridiculous. They have 6 bicycles in the garage for you to enjoy but only one of them is operable. My husband did find some tools in the garage and fixed 1 of them so at least 2 out of 5 of us could ride. There is no beach buggy which is a must when going down to the beach. So we had to go buy one $40. Especially since the private gate access to the beach was broken. Which no one seemed to have told anyone. After our 4th trip to the beach we called and got a call back that yeah it was broke. 3 days later there was a sign on the gate. So it never did get fixed while we were there for a whole week. Such a huge inconvenience. There is no storage in the kitchen. There needs to be at least a pantry we could use. There is no storage in either bathroom. The tv was not working properly had to call owner to find out how to fix it. It continually messed up day after day. The tabs in the bedrooms are not worth turning on. The left sink in the master bathroom drains slow. Could not use. Couldn't get the washer door open. The bathroom at the 3rd floor pool was not useable for at least three days it looked like someone had puked or something.

Owner's Response: Wow, Kelly I am shocked, I wish I would have known in time to help and had been given an opportunity to take care of any issue right away for you. Your husband called and said he couldn't figure out the controls for the TV. Joel explained how to use the remotes and your husband said that it was working fine and thanked him. Joel told him to "please call at any time if you have any questions or concerns as we want you to have a great vacation" your husband was very nice; and he said it was 'all great, it is beautiful and we love your place'. We never heard back that you had any other TV issues or any other issues except the exterior pool gate. You called and you and I talked while I tried to help you open it. We figured out between us, that the key fob was working, so that was not the issue. So, I immediately called the live-in manager and reported it. He called for service and I called you back immediately to let you know. The sign went up when they were unable to fix it (and needed to order a part). Joel also called you back and left you a message that we always access the beach thru the north gate which is much easier. (This information is in our welcome letter that you received prior to arrival.) You did not inform us of any other issues either in the building or in the unit. If you had; we would have done anything in our power to make it right for you. We want every guest to have a wonderful experience. You have me so worried I just called the current renters (that moved in the day you departed) She said the unit was wonderful, the drain was working great, the shower head was fine, and the pool gate had been fixed. We do live in the beach condo; but have rented it out since Feb. (it is now July). We count on our responsible caretaker to deal with the issues "that we are aware of". Our building is cleaned daily and well maintained. We are lucky to have a live in manager who takes care of any item immediately, if at all possible , (and if he is informed). I am unclear what kind of 'storage' room you were looking for in the bathrooms/kitchen but I would have been happy to let you move any of the supplies to make it suit your own needs better. The bikes had all been serviced and were working well, it sounds like they had not been rinsed off after beach use, and have rusted. I will have them repaired/replaced now that I know. Our 31 '5 star' reviews are proof that we care; I wish you would have given us the chance. Carol
