Once you choose those specifications Rentjax.com will populate the options of the apartments in Jacksonville that have what you have requested.

Additionally, if you want your apartment to be close to a specific area of the beach (like where the surf is typically good), a specific hot spot in Jacksonville Beach (where surfers hang out), or a specific location on the street nearest the beach (near a surf shop that you frequent), use the easy apartment search guide again on the Rentjax.com homepage go down on the left to where it says “Distance from my location” and put in the address of the place you'd like in close proximity to your apartment.

After you put in an address, move the bar underneath and choose the amount of miles you'd like your beach apartment to be in distance from that location. Then, poof, the apartment search guide should populate options for your apartment in Jacksonville within that mileage from your chosen location.

After you do all that, take a look at the options that remain: their location, what amenities they offer, and their rental rates. Once you do, select the one in Jacksonville that is the most advantageous for your lifestyle. Once you've decided, or you get it down to a select few, call them up, find out what specials, if any, they offer, schedule a tour, and then pick one.
