What’s the most populous city in Florida? If you’re thinking Miami, think again! It’s the lesser known Jacksonville, in fact, that holds that title, making it twelfth countrywide. It might not be as popular and glamorous as Orlando or Miami, but it is beautiful in its own right. It is surrounded by parks and nature preserves, and boasts a long stretch of beautiful coast. If it’s a gloomy day, you can visit one of the many museums. For the younger ones, a theme park and a zoo may very well grab their attention. If this sounds enticing enough for a family holiday, check out our list of the top townhomes for rent in Jacksonville, Florida, to get some ideas.
Situated in quieter Riverside, yet not far from the heart of Jacksonville, this Bohemian-style home will charm you with its unique and modern touches. Start from the elegant back porch with white curtains and outdoor furniture and move inside towards the fully furnished kitchen, the master bedroom with a comfortable Victorian-era bed, the spacious living room with a colourful colonial theme and flat-screen TV, and the much-appreciated hot tub and make-up area in the bathroom. Superhost Ava has thought about everything, from all the necessary equipment to get your hair ready for a night out, to plenty of board games for a night in. The house can accommodate up to five guests, making it ideal for a family or a group of friends.

This clean, minimalist haven has space for up to 10 guests. This is the owner’s private house that’s been rented out while they’re on vacation around Florida, therefore it does feel like home. Guests particularly enjoy the thoughtful touches and amenities such as the memory foam mattresses and black-out curtains for sweet dreams, and the board games for nights in with the fam. Whilst the inside of the house is modern, the exterior has maintained its historical appearance. There are a front and back porches — the former is shared with the downstairs neighbours, while the latter is for your own use, be that a morning coffee or a nightcap. To top it all off, the house is situated just a short drive from downtown Jacksonville.
