Beaches House Rental Photos and Description

CONTACT OWNER FOR BOOKING DETAILS. 'The Little Beach House' is a cute beach bungalow, located on 4th Ave. N., within walking distance to the center of Jacksonville Beach and all the festivals, nightlife, shops and restaurants. You will enjoy a sidewalk all the way to the beach, which makes the 5 block walk very easy. You are also a very short drive to Mayo Clinic or the TPC.

The cottage is tastefully decorated with comfortable furnishings and an added entertainment area in the back.

About Lori Watson

As a native of Jacksonville, I have lived in several different areas of town and find the Intracoastal West (ICW) and the beaches my preferred areas. I am currently an active Real Estate Broker but spend most my time devoted to managing our 3 vacation properties full time. With the down turn in the real estate market we decided to convert "The Little Beach House" to a vacation rental in April of 2012. We found we enjoyed that enough to try our hand at a Bed & Breakfast, "The Fig Tree Inn" and purchased that in March of 2013. We quickly found we were getting more requests for whole house rentals, so in 2015, we converted to a vacation rental only. The new addition of "Pablo Place" to our vacation rentals is an effort to supply a comfortable retreat for those needing a slightly longer "short term stay". I hope you enjoy our vacation rentals as much as we enjoy offering them!

Lori Watson purchased this house in 2007

Why Lori Watson chose Florida

The Little Beach House is a warm, inviting and comfortable home away from home! It is in a great location to walk to anything Jax Beach! And the fully fenced back yard makes it easy to bring your furry friend along .

perfect! loved the little beach house! !

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the little beach house. It was perfect for our family. We loved riding the bikes, especially the tandem bike! The house was so close to the beach, the pier, shops, and stores. Lori was friendly, and willing to help any way she could to make our stay perfect. We will definitely be adding this to our list of vrbo houses we love!!

Feels like home

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay at the Little Beach house. We love this house. It is super clean and comfortable. It is well equipped and very convenient to the beach. No need for a car because shopping, restaurants, the beach and nightlife are all either a short walk or bike ride away. Also used Beach Buggies on several occasions. They provide rides for a "tips only" fee. Just text your address, destination and number of guests to 904-887-4441. They will promptly arrive and deliver you to locations from 32nd avenue South all the way north to Neptune beach. The owner of the house is outstanding. She has always made sure we have everything we need. If you are traveling with pets, this is a perfect house with a secure back yard for your fur babies. We would highly recommend this property for your next Jax beach vacation.

Little Beach House is a Big Value

  • 5 of 5

What a terrific location, location, location. Everyday we took the short 5 minute walk to the beach where we ran, biked, swam, boogie boarded, enjoyed local cuisine and relaxed. The House has every amenity you can think of, from bikes to gas grills. It is immaculate and set up perfectly. Don't be fooled by the exterior pictures because from the enclosed front porch to the comfortable and neat living areas, you will be pleased. The three bedrooms provide plenty of space and the single bathroom handled 5 of us easily. Bath towels to Beach towels are in the closets and the back patio is a great private getaway for breakfast to dinner along with sunbathing. We can't say enough about the Hosts who bend over backwards to make sure any of your needs are taken care of. Treat yourself to a great vacation and stay at The Little Beach House.

Wonderful house, wonderful owner!

  • 5 of 5

This house and owner absolutely exceeded our expectations. We were caught in a bind when we arrived in Jacksonville Beach to find our booked rental home disgusting. We were lucky enough that this home was available and Lori really helped turn a stressful experience into a wonderful one. She was easy to contact and met us within an hour. Her home is absolutely beautiful. It is like a five star hotel, not a VRBO. The house is decorated beautifully and immaculately clean. The linens and towels are luxurious. The bed were incredibly comfortable. It was also so nice that the little things were already present for our use (toliet paper, paper towels etc.). My children were thrilled that there were toys, books, bikes, and sand toys present for their use. The house is in a great location - just a few blocks from the pier and restuarants. We were able to walk our children there with the help of the wagon provided at the home. Because the house is so beautiful and well-appointed, we were all able to have a good time even when the weather wasn't ideal. I highly recommend this property and hope it is available the next time I am in Jax Beach!
