Sweeping ocean views are yours at Golden Star, our 3-story beachfront house right on Jacksonville Beach. Ready to accommodate a big group, this house includes an in-law flat, modern electronics, new furnishings, grassy yard, and 3 oceanfront balconies.
There's plenty of space for everyone in the group at Golden Star! The ground floor is a self-contained 3-bedroom, 3-bath villa with an exterior entrance, gorgeous ocean views, full kitchen, master suite, and 3 separate living spaces. The upper two floors feature a beautiful third-floor loft with huge master suite, formal living and dining areas, big kitchen, and panoramic beach views. No matter where you are at Golden Star, you're surrounded by beauty and comfort!
The house is set just behind the dunes, with a nice grassy strip for the kids to play on and the adults to enjoy picnics, bird-watching, and entertaining. A boardwalk leads down to the beach, and the sound of the surf is always present when you're on the balconies or in the yard at Golden Star -- the perfect soundtrack to your Jacksonville vacation!
Just in from the yard is the Florida room, with comfy wicker furnishings and lovely views. There is also a family room on the first floor and a living room with TV, decorative fireplace, and plenty of cozy seating. The master suite is just off the living area, with a king-sized bed, private TV, and en-suite bath with deep soaking tub and walk-in shower. Sunshine spills into nearly every room, making it a pleasure to wake up each morning!
There are 2 additional bedrooms and full bathrooms on the first floor: one with a queen-sized bed and the other with 2 twins. Each of the bathrooms has both a shower and tub option, ideal for younger children. And this floor also contains a full kitchen plus a dining table! You can use the ground floor as a self-contained flat for another family, or make it part of the whole house.
The second floor is the main living and dining area of Golden Star, featuring a sitting room with two deep, comfortable armchairs facing a bank of huge windows overlooking the ocean. This will be your "go to" spot at Golden Star, a great place to begin the day. (Get up early enough and you might even catch the brilliant sunrise over the horizon!) For larger gatherings, the living room is the focus -- here you'll find a huge HDTV with DVD playera, ultra-comfortable couches (one of which opens into a queen-sized bed), a luxurious reading chair by the windows, and a decorative fireplace. Spacious and inviting, the living room is where your group will congregate at all times of day!
But why stay indoors? Two separate balconies open out from the second floor, inviting you to feel the salt-kissed breezes and enjoy the sound of the waves up close! Bring your breakfast out here and watch the pelicans dive-bomb into the ocean to catch fish, or spend a few minutes updating your social media (you have free WiFi at Golden Star) in the balmy Florida sunshine.
When it's time for a snack, enjoy the convenience and spaciousness of the big main kitchen at Golden Star. It's completely equipped with appliances large and small, granite countertops, cookware, dishes, and utensils. The kids will love the breakfast bar here with its high stools, and you'll appreciate the sun-drenched breakfast nook, not to mention the big table in the formal dining room.
There are 3 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms on the second floor: 2 with queen beds and 1 with two twins. All are spacious, comfy, and light, with lovely views. A washer and dryer are also on hand to keep all those swimsuits fresh and dry!
Travel up to the third floor and you find yourself in a charming loft sitting room with a sleeper sofa, TV, and balcony access. The master suite is just adjacent to this -- a huge bedroom with a king bed, TV, private balcony access, and breathtaking views. The en-suite bath is palatial as well, offering a deep soaking tub, walk-in shower, and separate powder room.
