Let’s (Safely) Go to the Beach

One of the MANY perks about living in Tamaya is its proximity to the beach.

This master-planned community southeast of metropolitan Jacksonville is located on — what else? — Beach Boulevard, and the Atlantic Ocean is, as advertised, six miles away.

You’re minutes by motor vehicle or motorcycle, and a bit more aboard a bicycle. But the point is that sun and sand can be part of your daily Tamaya lifestyle.

The nearest ocean outpost is the city of Jacksonville Beach. It’s directly east of Tamaya and is a great place to spread a blanket, set up some chairs and dash for […]

So Many Floor Plans, Choices at Tamaya

One of the aggravating things about shopping for a new custom home is being presented with a dearth of floor plans by builders.

What do you do if you love a community but none of that builder’s designs? Not even a little? And the builder doesn’t customize?

You come to Tamaya!

ICI Homes’ master-planned community southeast of Jacksonville will change your mind. Not only is the location minutes to everywhere off Interstate 295, it’s only six miles west of Atlantic Ocean beaches, near the intersection of Hodges and Kernan Boulevards.

Tamaya also offers truly amazing amenities, but for a frustrated home buyer who […]

Always Something Fun to Do at Tamaya

Buying or building a new custom Florida home often means finally attaining your dream home.

You and other household members might have spent months, if not years, researching and planning not only what kind of home you wanted, but where you wanted it to be. Your timetable is admittedly tighter if you must move due to sudden career, family or personal reasons. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take careful planning into consideration.

How about the community? Consider more than its distance to workplaces, schools, shopping areas and medical care. If you’re only just beginning to consider these factors, take a […]

An Update on Tamaya Market and Sprouts

If you’re cruising for a new custom Florida home in Jacksonville, we hope you’ll consider Tamaya, ICI Homes’ master-planned community on the southeast side of “JAX.”

Tamaya’s tagline is “Between the City and the Sea,” which you’ll see once you’re here. Its 780 acres are sited near the main intersection of Beach and Kernan Boulevards, and you literally can get anywhere in metro “JAX” once you exit Tamaya’s gates.

Head west a few miles and you’re in downtown Jacksonville. A few miles east and you’re at gorgeous Atlantic Ocean beaches. And, while Tamaya’s location can’t be beat, neither can its nearby […]

Jacksonville Events and Festivals

Moving to Tamaya, ICI Homes’ master-planned community southeast of Jacksonville, means plenty of neighborhood activities to enjoy without ever having to, well, leave the neighborhood.

Tamaya’s community lifestyle coordinators keep the action going year-round with fun events that range from impromptu pool parties, to dress-up dinners, and everything in between.

Home base for many of those events is the 10,000-square-foot residents club in the heart of the community. The club’s beautiful interior and landscaped grounds anchor other amenities which you should check out when you visit Tamaya’s welcome center and model home park.

But there’s also more than enough to do elsewhere. […]

Be Active ‘Between the City and the Sea’ at Tamaya

The 780-acre gated enclave is smack in the middle of everywhere you’d like to be. In fact, Tamaya’s tag line is “Between the City and the Sea” and it’s very apt.

Classic, Timeless Home Designs at Tamaya

You really have to visit Tamaya to appreciate what you’ll find.

Our website and that of our builder, ICI Homes, furnishes plenty of great photos, video and reading material. And you’ll probably think you’ll know what to expect when you arrive at our sales center and model home park. But you still might be shocked.

The beauty of Tamaya is that its design was deliberate. Its homes are all Mediterranean, Spanish and Tuscan in inspiration, and those classic elements of stucco, clay-tile roofs and cast-iron decorative flourishes — among many others — are all you’ll see.

No wildly divergent styles or clashing […]

Put Tamaya’s Model Home Park to Use

Interested in ICI Homes’ master-planned community of Tamaya? It’s one of our most significant offerings in metro Jacksonville and we’d love to introduce it to you.

Even the impressive 10,000-square-foot Residents Club, which anchors the community with indoor gathering spaces, two pools and an event lawn (among other perks), projects the same cool warmth with its sculpted stucco, columned walkways and […]
