Deerwood Country Club is 18.4 miles from NAX Jax, about 25 minutes without traffic delays. It is a great central location.
However, if you can go up in price a bit, you can actually rent a house on the river on Fleming Island for $2750 (or negotiate it). There is a dock with two boatlifts, four car garage, and you are right on the St. Johns River. These do not come along every day, so wanted to be sure to let you know. This is about a 15 minute drive to the base.
If you move to Fleming Island, you don't have to cross the Buckman - 3 miles wide. The Buckman is fine much of the time, but rainy days and accidents cause delays.
Deerwood is a more central location in Jacksonville, so it depends on what you want. If you need any help, please let us know. Thank you for your service to our country.
