About Melissa Rachel Olivia Messenger
Although born and briefly raised as a child in Southern California, Melissa has called New Orleans, Louisiana home for nearly 4 decades....after a promotion & mandatory relocation in 2011, Melissa called North Florida's Atlantic Coast home until a career ending back injury brought her, un-disappointingly, back home to New Orleans...however, unwilling to face selling the adorable beach house she just spent a year building and meticulously decorating in 2016, Melissa opted to explore dual-residency in both Florida & Louisiana- guess one can have their gumbo and eat jambalaya too- mostly thanks to the explosive growth and popularity of short term rentals & amazing guest-renters making this dream a financial reality! Melissa creates an environment that mimics resort quality attention to detail using her own past travels and years of personal experience with short term rentals throughout the US, but the ultimate goal remains to be the best host & property and create memories that all vacationing guests will cherish forever! Melissa enjoys living on an oak tree filled acre in a quiet New Orleans suburb with her amazing man, Shane, and their brilliantly quick witted 15 year old son, Brady.

Why Melissa Rachel Olivia Messenger chose The Beaches
Everyone has a place where they go to escape the pressures and the worries of their hectic lives. There’s always that one place that you can go to, to clear your head and soothe your problems away when you are stressed. For me that place is the beach, it is my ultimate cure for stress. When I’m there, all my worries and obligations are suddenly lifted and I feel calm and free. Thoughts of living at a beach house, for most of us, bring about images of clear blue skies and beautiful tropical blue beaches as we dream up fantasies of ultimate relaxation and well-being.

Baby Blue Jacksonville Beach house
This was one of the nicest places we’ve stayed in. The abundance of extras (food, drinks, toiletries, etc.) was wonderful.
Pictures don't do it justice
Melissa's home was absolutely stunning!!!!! The moment we walked into the door my entire family could not believe this is what we had booked. Every detail is covered, from sunscreen, high end hygiene items, and a fully stocked kitchen for the chef.
The beds were heaven, the towels soft, and every room had a TV. We could walk to the beach or use the bikes, hit the CVS two blocks away or quick drive/bike to some amazing bars and food places.
Melissa was also so kind and overstocked us with a few items including bottled water cause we came during Hurricane Dorian. I can't wait to go back and stay when we can have some better weather.
Does. It disappoint!
The pictures of this property do not do it justice. It is all it was advertised to be and much more. I wish I had time to describe the amazing time my sisters and I had the five nights we spent there.
The owner, Melissa was always available to help with anything and was actually downright fun to talk to! The gorgeous beach is a short walk down a nice clean Neighborhood street ( bikes were also made available if we wanted) . She offered all the amenities you could e we expect or need, tailored to fit our plant based lifestyle.
If I could add anything to this breathtaking home it would be curtains to cover the sliding doors at night (a bunch of scary women) lol. And maybe a full length mirrors for us short gals. We will be back for sure.
I’m not one who write reviews, but I have to. This property was way beyond my expectations. I’m a clean freak, so I bought cleaning supplies to clean the house since I have small kids, well when I walked in the house it was spotless. I couldn’t find anything to clean. And it smelled really good. I was so relieved. Not only was the house spotless, it was well stocked with everything thing you can think of...toothbrush, toothpaste, food, and even a bottle sterilizer....wow. This was our family 1st time renting a house and we are so glad we did, and picked this property. Melissa is just an awesome person. She made sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. She even had Paw Patrol juice for my son and he was sooo happy!!! When we go back to Jax Beach, our family will stay at this house again. Thank you Melissa for everything! xoxo
We had an amazing weekend at the blue house, beautiful, comfortable house, great communication with Melissa, she was always ready to help, I truly recommend everyone to come visit Jacksonville to stay there.
Beach House Paradise
Reviews of the house really caught my eye when planning for this trip. We weren't really sure we wanted to be a few blocks from the beach. We decided to give it a try, and were completely satisfied that we did. Communication with the owner was on point. She did everything she could to accommodate our early arrival. When you first walk in the home, you can see the attention to detail. We walked into a well stocked refrigerator with drinks, fresh fruits, breakfast foods, and fresh bread. There are fresh cut flowers all over the home. The house was stocked with toilet paper, paper towels, trash bags, dish-washing liquids, etc. This is something you usually don't (I never have with 7 VRBO rentals so far) see with VRBO rentals. The house is a five-minute walk to the beach. We loaded up our truck with beach equipment and drove down to the beach...parking is a breeze....plenty of spaces available every day. We had no issues with the home and hope to be back in the future.
