Some of the best places to find a good beach vacation rental in Jacksonville include Atlantic Beach, Neptune Beach, and Jacksonville Beach. These coastal communities are part of the Jacksonville Beaches community, which is definitely a hot spot during the summer months. An inexpensive trolley runs up and down the coast between these communities during the summer season, so you can rely on it to visit the various shops and restaurants that can be found in the area.

St. Augustine might be too far south for some when it comes to finding a good Jacksonville area base, in which case Ponte Vedra is also worth considering. All of these destinations offer proximity to downtown Jacksonville if you want to visit the Landing, the Riverwalk, the urban parks, or the wonderful Jacksonville museums on the side. If you want to be closer to all the downtown Jacksonville attractions, a stay at a downtown condo is the way to go.
