About Trina & Mark Lockwood

My wife and I have owned this condo since 2005. We currently use it as our retreat from the cold weather and the bustle of normal life. We have set it up as a vacation home with a Florida theme. You won't find a more comfortable and affordable rental in this very desirable area of Jacksonville.

What makes this condo unique

Over the years we have invested a lot of time and money into making the condo as comfortable as possible. The bedroom has a king-sized Sleep Number bed on a solid wood bed frame. The living room has a 42' flat-screen TV, with cable, a DVD player and some books for pleasure reading on your vacation. The kitchen has all the appliances and cookware you need for at home meals. Beyond the kitchen is a full size washer and dryer for your convenience.

Throughout the condo we have Key-West themed paint on the walls and fun artwork to make the condo feel like a true retreat from the ordinary.

A great choice in Jacksonville

  • 5 of 5

I chose the condo over a hotel stay for a week long business trip and was so glad that I did. The condo had everything that I needed. The owners, Mark and Trina, were amazingly quick to respond to questions and immediately addressed a minor maintenance issue when it arose during my stay. The condo gated community ("the Villas" ) and the surrounding neighborhoods have ample sidewalks for getting out for a run or walk. Having a Target & Aldi within walking distance was also a big plus. Great place & great location! I would definitely recommend it for your stay and hope to stay here again when I return to Jacksonville.

Nice clean place to relax & enjoy your getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This was our fourth stay at Mark & Trina's "Couples Retreat" - we keep coming back because it's always clean, comfortable and the owners are very responsive to any requests or issues we might have. The location is great with a variety of retail stores, various eating establishments, etc. to chose from. We highly recommend it!

Fantastic – exactly as described

  • 5 of 5

We can only reiterate the same positive reviews, as other guests have made regarding their own stay.

The condo was very close to amenities such as Target and Aldi, which were within walking distance for groceries. The community facilities such as the pool and fitness centre were virtually empty for us doing our stay, and we saw plenty of wildlife from grey squirrels in the trees to the ducks in the pond… as well as a duck that fancied a paddle in the pool with us.

This condo was exactly as described, and we fully enjoyed our stay. Would fully recommend this condo for couples, or a short stay for small families.

Great place to stay for the Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance

  • 5 of 5

The property was as described, very nicely maintained gated condo complex. We made late plans for attend the Amelia Island Concours dElegance and were finding it impossible to find lodging on Amelia Island. We decided to travel a little (~25 miles) and stay in Jacksonville and were fortunate enough to find Mark and Trina's property. The grounds of the complex were very attractive and well maintained. Trina was great to work with, we had a last min minor schedule change and she was able to accommodate our schedule change. Thanks so much.

Convenient Condo in Jacksonville

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in this condominium for a week in November and found it to be very convenenient. In fact, because we were there for a family memorial and Thanksgiving and were surrounded by family (and family events), I only discovered close to our departure the back route to Target and HomeGoods. Quiet, comfortable and convenient.
