Wow! What an Adorable 1934 Cottage 1 Min Walk to Beach 3 min walk to Restaurants


Home Description

We have been renting ocean front vacation rentals for over 12 years. We purchased this very special and adorable cottage just steps from the beach and we spent tens of thousands of dollars renovating it back to it's former glory. We pride ourselves on providing an enjoyable relaxing vacation experience with nice furnishings and a beautiful setting and as a result we have many repeat customers that come back year after year.
This very rare and adorable 1934 beach cottage has been beautifully restored to its former glory days. We have named it K&J Casita Del Mar which stands for Kirk and Jean's little house by the beach. It is located in the heart of Jacksonville Beach and only steps away from the ocean. It is easy walking distance to many shops, festivals, bars, clubs, and restaurants. Everything is right there.

And we are only 10 minutes away from the famous Mayo clinic and 15 minutes to the PGA Tour Headquarters and famous TPC Sawgrass Championship golf course with its new $80 million dollar club house and the annual PGA Tour Players Championship Tournament.

We are also just 30 minutes to beautiful St. Augustine, FL the Nations oldest city and a major tourist attraction in its own right.

Our cottage is suitable for just one couple, several couples, or a an entire family getaway or family reunion. For a smaller wedding, why not have your wedding on the beach and your reception at the Cottage. We have a huge private backyard, one of the largest at the beach where you can simply relax or even have your breakfast, lunch, or dinner in the privacy of your own backyard.

Check us out on Google Earth or Google Maps and you will see how close we are to the beach. We have a limited supply of beach chairs for the adults, and even beach toys for the kids.

We also have a beautiful fire pit for those chilly evenings or for a good old fashioned campfire like the old days. And of course don't forget our very own Tiki Hut / Bar in the backyard too. This is the perfect vacation getaway location.

Because we are in a residential neighborhood we simply ask you to respect the neighbors at night with common courtesy and the fact that they have to go to work in the mornings while you are on vacation.

We furnished this adorable cottage with nice furniture such as a rattan dining room set, and rattan living room furniture and we decorated the place like a home. You will feel it's your home away from home the moment you walk into this adorable cottage. The cottage still has original beautiful wood walls and wood floors almost throughout the entire house. The walls and floors are absolutely beautiful after our refinishing.

Our kitchen is stocked with cookware, dishes, utensils, glasses, and of course campaign glasses to start your vacation. The side-by-side fridge has ice and water in the door. You may just find yourself eating out in the terrific local restaurants within 5 or less than 5 minutes walking distance, or you'll appreciate the microwave and coffeemaker for your convenience too! Plus, you can also put something into crock pot and the food will be ready when you come back from beach. If not, you can throw chicken/steak/hamburger, etc. on the BBQ grill and enjoy your family picnic at the backyard. We recently added a cute surf board outdoor shower so that you can take a warm shower to rinse off all the sand.

A laundry room is equipped with washer, dryer to makes longer trips away from home easier.

Sheets, liens and towels will also be provided. The cottage is also furnished with HD TV , Blue Ray DVD player, and boom box for your quiet time. W also provide WIFI internet service too, just in case you want to stay in touch with family/friends during your stay.

Inquire with any questions or better yet, book it now and we are sure you will fall in love with it. We did.

** You have option to add our new addition for another 1 bedroom studio to have total 4 bedrooms and 3 baths and can sleep up to 11-12 guests or only book the 3 BR/2 baths for the main house only. As of now, we do not rent suite out separately so it stays empty if not rented.

Adorable Beach Home!

The place is nice and clean with a great backyard. It was also wonderful to be walking distance to the beach and multiple restaurants. Overall we had a great stay and would recommend the place to others.

Perfect home away from home

Had a marvelous week enjoying the cool indoors of this spacious house and the hot beach, front porch and back yard. House was well stocked with most everything needed. All you needed to add was food and drink. Hot and buggy but that's June in Florida. Hope to make it an annual event with family.

Our family has rented at this cutie 3 times now. It's perfect in location and size and the backyard space is awesome for large groups, barbeques and just hanging out. Being able to walk across the street is the reason we chose this property. It just can't get any easier to go to the beach. The variety of sleeping options allows our large family to all congregate under one roof and since we only see each other once a year, this is an important feature. We'll be back next season!

Wonderful vintage cottage steps from beach!

Spent two delightful weeks in January at Jean's well equipped cottage. Beautiful wood floors and paneled walls with a great kitchen and very comfy furniture and beds. Front porch and rear courtyard with fire pit and grill are big pluses. Best is the one minute walk to the beach adjacent to Beachfront Park. Very close to a wide range of restaurants. The beach itself is very wide with soft sand, great for bike riding at low tide. Jean is a great owner and very responsive to guests. Cottage is clean as a whistle thanks to Tracy.
