About Paula and Jim Brown

I have had rentals for 20 years.

I enjoy getting to know guests from all over. And have many repeat guests that I love.

Paula and Jim Brown purchased this condo in 2009

Why Paula and Jim Brown chose Beaches

Love sitting on that Balcony and taking walks on the Beach. Take a $1 with you and walk out on the pier. Walk back and stop at one of oceanfront restaurants for a beverage or a meal.

Like walking to the Beach Hut restaurant for breakfast or Breezy Coffee around the corner to start my day.

Love the Jax Beach amphitheater is a walk away for show they have.

What makes this condo unique

romantic with great sound system; electric fireplace, and dimmable light sconces in oceanfront bedroom

and moonlight walks.

walk to many restaurants or the pavillion

Beautiful beach front view!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was clean and well maintained with a beautiful view of the ocean. We spent a lot of time enjoying the balcony. We had a great time on the beach and exploring Jacksonville. There are a total a lot of great restaurants close like Maple Street Biscuit and Hawkers Asian Market. We would definitely stay there again.

Beautiful view. Right on the water

  • 3 of 5

It was the coldest week of the year and needed heating. The heater never got above 70 and just kept blowing cool air 24/7. The place could use a bit of redecorating and take out some of the dated furniture. Overall nothing beats the view!

Owner's Response: Well I guess my eclectic taste doesn't please everybody. The loveseat is comfy but will replace soon as worn. All other furniture is on website and pictures are recent and personally I like the way the condo is decorated. The mattresses are very comfortable as well as the couch. Please view the pictures on website which are taken in the last 1-2 months. When it is 98 outside, the AC runs constantly. When it is 26 outside, the heater runs constantly . I have had heat up in the 70's and that is what the thermostat said whatever degree I set thermostat on. I even have a fireplace electric heater that I suggested guest use . As , it really heats up small spaces. I guess Miami doesn't get chilly. anyhow 2 bad reviews in a row . I will keep trying my best
