Snowbirding to area next winter

My wife and I are +55's looking to snowbird in the greater St Aug, Jacksonville area Dec 2011-Mar 2012. Would like to rent 2-3 br for around $4000/mth. on beach w/pool(s). Would prefer a turn-key lux resort within walking distance of town, shops and restaurants, golf carts. We would like somehing like The Villages but with a beach. Suggestions?

I think you'll enjoy North Florida! Here is a link to a real-estate company that has a lot of rentals in the area. I think they'll have what you're looking for.


You may also want to check the site, www.vrbo.com. This stands for 'Vacation Rental By Owner' and you may very well find something there. We just rented our last vacation home through this site, and we were extremely pleased.

We've also used Five Star Realty for a beach condo that we rent in St. Augustine.

Good luck! Let us know if we can help.

I'd highly recommend booking through VRBO.com too. We've rented through them before with great success. There you'll be able to find what you're looking for. :)
