Florida’s Atlantic coast is known for salty waves, pristine sand, and the bright lights of South Beach. Miami is a vibrant location for partying and star-sighting, but for those who crave a more laid-back retreat that still has a big-city feel, Jacksonville is ideal.
Those chill vibes are what former Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley and his wife, Michaela, love about the the northern coast of Florida.
Just 18 miles southeast of downtown Jacksonville sits Ponte Vedra Beach, a beautiful expanse of crystal-blue Atlantic beach. This is where the couple made their home while Gus Bradley coached the Jags from 2013 until 2016, when he was fired.
For $12,950 a month, you can make their home your home. Now that Gus Bradley is working as the defensive coordinator of the L.A. Chargers, he and his wife are renting out their incredible Florida estate.
“This area holds a special place in our hearts,” says Michaela Bradley. “We don’t want to part with it.”
However, this is no Airbnb winter-break crash pad. A home of this caliber is definitely more suited for a long-term rental—and let’s be honest—the HOA has requirements about vacation rentals.
A stellar location, a host of amenities (golf, anyone?), and easy access to the water make this home worthy of the five-digit rental price.
“This property is the total package,” says listing agent Jane Chefan.
The kitchen/dining and living area have recently gone through extensive renovations, and the result is gorgeous.
“It is a wide-open space perfect for family activity or entertaining,” says Michaela Bradley.
The 6,376-square-foot home also offers an abundance of space. Each of its five bedrooms has an ensuite bath. An additional three half-bathrooms make for easy facility access for guests.
“The outdoor living is second to none. Covered porches overlook expansive water views and a large screened-in pool and jacuzzi. A recently built gazebo offers a sit-down bar with big screen TV, grill, refrigerator, and ice maker. A 60-foot dock comes with the lease for anyone looking to have their boat conveniently located for ease of use,” says Chefan.
Endless summer abounds in Jacksonville, and this house offers the amenities to enjoy it all. All it’ll take is a monthly rental payment to a coaching couple who aren’t yet ready to leave Florida for good.
