8 Airbnbs In Jax To Remember

It's not just a convenience, it's a movement! It's true, more and more savvy travelers are realizing the benefits of staying in Airbnbs and vacation rentals rather than traditional hotels. Not only is it easier on your wallet, but you also get more space, and in most cases, it's far more family-friendly and pet friendly. Need a longer-term rental for six months or less? Airbnbs will be the best bang for your buck and you'll be in the comfort of your own space where, depending on your stay may include a full kitchen, fitness equipment, and recreational amenities such as pools and bicycles. In fact, we loved staying at Airbnbs so much, that we opened our own. Here you'll find some of the best vacation rentals in Jacksonville. We invite you to be our guests, the first two are hosted by my husband and me, the rest are hosted by our personal friends and we highly recommend their homes.
