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

Beach Paradise!!

  • 5 of 5

We fell in love with this condo from the minute we walked in! I was vacationing with my 84yr old father (who had unexpected surgery on his femur bone 5 wks prior) & my little Cockapoo dog. My father already had problems walking prior to the surgery so needless to say he could not walk on the beach at all. The view from the balcony was just what we needed. He loved it and even sat with his bathing suit on several days just to get sun while sitting on the balcony. This was the most well equipped condo I’ve ever stayed in and it was very clean! You can tell Paula and Jim really take pride in their condo. I loved the binder that tells you step by step on how to use pretty much everything in the unit and they even have a listing of restaurants with some menus too! (They really took a lot of time putting this binder together - very useful) I was up before daylight and on the beach every morning with my dog to take sunrise pictures and then walk the beach looking for shells. My father took pictures of the sunrise from the balcony and they were awesome. So if you aren’t able to go on to the beach at least watch the sunrise from the balcony. I loved the netting they put on the balcony for my dog and also the couch cover. There was no smells of dogs nor dog hair anywhere in the condo - I’m telling you this place was spic and span clean. The reserved parking spot was great because it’s under the unit which means your car is in the shade at all times. There are 15 stairs that go right up to their door or you can take the elevator which is on the opposite end of the building but it isn’t a far walk at all. My father took the elevator and had no problems. Everything is so convenient, the elevator, pool gate & walk over to the beach are all right together. I had the pool area mostly to myself each day which was very nice and relaxing. We tried several restaurants but our favorite by far was Safe Harbour Seafood in Mayport which was a 25 min drive but well worth it. It was pet friendly, all eating is outside. Your view is the waterway with shrimp and fishing boats. You do have to order inside so if you take a pet someone will have to stay outside with them while you order. It’s right by the Naval Base so there were helicopters out and about which we also enjoyed. For a good hamburger we liked M Shack on Atlantic Blvd. it is also pet friendly outside. I can not say enough good things about this condo. Thank you Jim & Paula for a great place to stay!

Comfortable place to relax.

  • 4 of 5

Found everything we needed to enjoy time together for my granddaughter’s graduation. Especially enjoyed the balcony and view. My only suggestion would be to install a grab bar to make exiting the tub safer. Thanks again.

Perfect, perfect, perfect

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location. Perfect appointments. Perfect beach. Communication with the owners

was wonderful; they were helpful and extremely easy to work with. Good tv system and good wifi, but do this: leave all the electronic stuff "off", open the doors and soak up the sounds,

views, and smells of nature at the beach. "It's A Shore Thing" is a delightful experience from

front to back. Don't miss this gem if you are planning a stay in the Jacksonville Beach area!

Great location, older building, a bit small for four but the veranda is nice.

  • 3 of 5

We were generally pleased with the place, even though it was an old building. It's tight for 4 if you plan to spend much time indoors, and bedrooms are separated by a thin slider so don't count on privacy. Washer dryer were great. Bring your own wine glasses if you don't like plastic.
