Stay with us in the Bold New City of the South.
Jacksonville sells itself: great weather, gorgeous beaches, stunning economic growth, NFL football games and a world class arts scene. And when you stay with Waterwalk Jacksonville, you can get the most out of our outstanding location and extraordinary comforts.
Here for work? We are located just 20 minutes from the Naval Air Station, 13 minutes from Baptist Medical Center, 14 minutes to downtown Meryl Lynch office, 12 minutes to the Mayo Clinic, 9 minutes from the University of North Florida and just 5 minutes from Blue Cross Blue Shield of Florida. And when it comes to downtime, the options are extensive (endless commute not included).
Less than 10 minutes from Waterwalk, you can take the family to the Jacksonville “Hands On” Children’s Museum, the UNF Nature trails, Top Golf or St. John’s Town Center for shopping, restaurants and entertainment. Head 15 minutes downtown for the MOCA Art Museum or a pro football game at TIAA Bank Field. Looking to get away, head in the other direction for less than 15 minutes to reach Florida’s most beautiful east coast beaches.
And if at the end of the day, you’re just looking for a bit of tranquility amidst the daily hubbub, come home to a friendly welcome from our 24/7 Front Desk staff and a corner of cool quietude in your airy open-concept suite with in-room washer & dryer, full kitchen and all the perks you haven’t come to expect—but we think you deserve it anyway.

What is Waterwalk? What is flexible lodging? Are you a hotel or an apartment?
First let us just say that we like the existential depth of these questions. And because we’re feeling deep, we’ll misquote Forrest Gump. We’re actually not like a box of chocolates, you always know what you’re going to get: flexibility, no hidden fees and that signature Waterwalk hospitality.
Waterwalk is a lodging concept that believes you should be able to customize your stay without sneaky fees and unreadable lease terms. We’re flexible because we can be both a hotel and an apartment—you decide. We offer fully furnished rooms that are just like an extra-roomy, cushy, amenity-heavy hotel. This option does not require an application or signed agreement, just a reservation and a credit card on file with prices set at a nightly rate depending upon your length of stay. See, a hotel.
But our unfurnished option works like your typical apartment. You submit a free online application with no legal gymnastics on your part and no shady surprises on ours. If approved, we offer rental rates for stays anywhere from 3-18 months in length.
If I’m looking for something more long-term, what are the qualifications for leasing an unfurnished suite?
A DNA sample and your basic secret society handshake. Kidding, all we require is a minimum credit score of 550, a monthly income of 2.5-3 times the cost of rent, good rental history (No prior evictions or landlord-tenant disputes), and the stipulation that anyone over the age of 18 must submit a separate application with a current photo ID and proof of monthly income.
I prefer my dog to humans. Do you have an area where I can just hang out with them?
Though we love dog parks, we do not have a fenced-in doggy spot. However, they are welcome to use the ample grassy areas around the property—just like they are allowed to use decidedly un-doglike contraptions like our elevators. So feel free to walk your pet and utilize the bag stations for your convenience.
I have a Corgi-pug so I need to know if you allow weird-looking dogs?
No breed restrictions! We welcome all dogs and cats: weird dogs, weird cats, even Corgi-pugs who might look like angry old men with short legs and a generous backside.
Does WaterWalk have partially furnished units?
Not yet. At this time it’s furnished or unfurnished—but flexible means we are always listening and looking for new ways to let you customize. So if your one requirement is that every unfurnished apartment you rent has to provide a creepy, antique rocking chair—let us know. We’re nothing if not curious.
