Golden Star, 7 Bedroom & Loft, Beach Front, Near Mayo Clinic, Sleeps 18
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 ocean front 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.
Slip out onto the 3rd-floor balcony and enjoy panoramic views of the coast

We had a blissful time at this house! It was absolutely gorgeous. The view from the living room and kitchen was spectacular. The master suite was like so huge and movie-star quality. We hope to return when the new flooring is in!

From start to finish, Vacation Rental Pros are the best! Golden Star is to be remembered as the place where we met with the King! It was BEYOND AWESOME. Only a few house care items to be fixed. But NO COMPLAINTS!

Being on the beach was priceless. The house and it's layout is fantastic. We were only disappointed in how dirty and spotted the beige carpet was throughout. And seeing everyone comes from out of town, outside and beach chairs and furniture should be provided and in good condition. But we had a great time!!

My Husband and I as well as several extended family stayed at the Golden Star for the wedding of our son. The home had beautiful views of the ocean was a great size for the number of people that were in our party. The only down side was the carpets were dirty and stained in the main level. I would highly this oasis.

We rented this property with an extended family of 18 for Thanksgiving week. We had grandparents down to a 12 year old. There was plenty of space to cook and eat with that many as well as have a Monopoly game continuously set up. The house was great, the view was spectacular. We could walk to restaurants and Publix for last minute things. There was plenty of parking for everyone. I would highly recommend this property for large family gatherings. The only suggestion I would make is that the bedrooms in the upper house need some dressers or luggage racks to put suitcases on. We had to have our suitcases on the floor the entire week - minor issue. Overall loved it and are considering renting it again.

Overall the property as advertised and very spacious. The property had many amenities that you might not expect. Outside furniture needs repair, and upstairs kitchen bar stools were wobbly so were set aside and not used. Overall good experience and met our needs for our large family and daughter's wedding.
Pictures do no justice for this great place

We were amazed at the size and luxury of a beach house. There were Beautiful views of the beach from level two and three of the house. The beds were comfortable and my whole family were very happy with their beds. Only down arrow was that it was a good thing we brought our own crock pot and a large cooking pot because that is the only thing the kitchen lacked. Easy access to beach and a very comfortable home away from home.

Although the rental price was a good bit higher for comparable properties we have rented at St George Island, it met our needs and expectations. The home was comfortable and seems to be well maintained. One thing to be aware of is that the house is two separate units with an upstairs and a downstairs and access to the upstairs is an exterior staircase. That was slightly inconvenient, especially when it was raining. Since there are two kitchens we often found ourselves transporting utensils and dishware from upstairs to the downstairs area so that we could eat together. More of an inconvenience than a major negative. Overall both the adults and youngsters had a great time at this location.
