My experience with this place is pleasant as overall. It is a nice place located next to Jax beach and near many good facilities such as Starbucks, bicycle rentals and grocery stores. The reason that I have rented this place is that I live in Jacksonville and I needed a place near the beach when my parents are visiting.
Despite the good stay, I don't recommend staying in this place for the following reasons:
1- The price is overrated and doesn't match the advertised price in the website. When I saw the place on tripadvisor it was advertised as costing $1500/week, but after requesting the booking the owner has increased the price unreasonably to $2000/week + deposit and the only reason was that the website going to eat from their profit.
2- I couldn't save my self the headache when it comes in dealing with the owner/management. There was no a checklist for what items present in the apartment, and no one explained to us what is there as extra or where it is present, plus you will be responsible for whatever the owner tell you they are missing without checking the apartment with you before or after rental and this completely unreliable. After I have left the place by 30 min I was contacted by them saying that they can't find two extra set of sheets and two towels. I have explained to them that we didn't take any items from the apartment and tried to explain where the missing items could be but they couldn't figure it out. I couldn't comeback there as I have crossed have the way to the city so I had to let my father go back although he had a flight to catch. When he reached there they found the two towels and my dad show them the sets of sheets that we have used and kept it in one of the closets but the owner kept on saying that the sheets they are missing were not actually those but instead they were extra sets that was suppose to be on one of the shelves !!!! Now this is the thing that I didn't like, how come you didn't explain to me in the first place that those were in the unit and you don't have a checklist for whatever you have in there ? So obviously we have failed to locate those extra sets and it was deducted from our deposit.
If this has to happen again I would defiantly book one of the 4 or 5 stars hotels that on the beach and I will benefit from a good service with the same price and save myself such a headache. I have stayed in many vacation rentals across the country but I didn't have such difficult time dealing with owners before.
