About Monica McAlpine Smith
I'm a Realtor for Keller Williams Realty Atlantic Partners. Formerly I worked for Merrill Lynch as a Financial Advisor for over 7 years. I'm originally from the state of Maine but lived most of my life in Florida. I graduated college at FSU. I finally moved to the beach about 8 years ago which was my life long dream and I still wonder what took me so long???
Monica McAlpine Smith purchased this Townhome in 2012
Why Monica McAlpine Smith chose Beaches
This is a prime location next to quiet Neptune Beach, FL which is strictly residential and it's within a mile of both beach town centers. I have lived within a couple streets of this location on and off for almost 10 years and would often pass by it on my afternoon walks with the dog. It wasn't living up to its full potential and when I realized it was on the market and I could afford to buy it I jumped on the opportunity. I have since fully remolded this unit, and painted the outside of the building this beachy blue color. I have had great experiences with long term and short term renters and look forward to many more.
What makes this Townhome unique
Quite Street a block from the ocean. No major roads to cross to walk to the beach, as the locals say, "It's East of Third."
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
Very pleased with property and entire experience. Enjoyed short walk to beach and property was as advertised. Would definitely stay again
My husband and I used this property to celebrate our 1 year anniversary. It was a perfectly quaint beach-home. Being two blocks from the beach allowed us to come and go throughout the day. The beach was very low-key and non-commercial. We loved being able to come home and cook every night and then go for walks on the beach. We were able to Uber everywhere we needed to go. Thank you for a wonderful stay!
Perfect size and location for weekend event
We were in town for a family wedding, and couldn't all fit in the home we rented. This rental provided the perfect additional space for four of our party. It was clean and charmingly decorated in beach decor, with thoughtful added touches like the full-length mirror and the binder with area recommendations. The beds were comfortable, and kitchen and bathrooms nicely updated. The beach is a two minute walk away, down a quiet street with almost no traffic. There is also a general store about a minute away which was so convenient. Just a few minutes farther away are lots of great restaurant options in a very fun area of town. Monica was great; prompt on all correspondence, gave us clear instructions before we came down, met us at the unit and walked us through everything, and just made it all very easy. We would definitely rent here again.
Location was perfect; just the right size for the two of us.
We spent 15 days in the property and it was very comfortable for us. The master bed was very comfortable and we enjoyed having cable TV for our down times. Because it was close to Jax Beach, we were able to walk or bike to a music festival and to a tiki bar to hear Raggae music, grocery store, and numerous restaurants. The beach itself was only 2 blocks away so an easy walk to enjoy the ocean.
This rental is like a breath of fresh air. Everything was very crisp and we loved the white w beach accents. Just a few steps to the beach and the hosts were excellent.
Always neat and clean, every time we stay here!
We have stayed here several times and have always been happy. Owners are local and are very welcoming.
