RIGHT ON THE BEACH - PET FRIENDLY, 5 BEDROOM/4 BATH HISTORIC LOG CABIN

Fernandina Beach House Rental Photos and Description

Historic cabin - all bedrooms have oceanviews - right on the sand

This is the perfect beach house for a larger family - or several couples.

It is a historic log cabin, right on the beach. The sand starts where our deck ends.

The heart of the house is the large, comfortable living room with such character - lovely inviting sofas to sink into, 42' flat screen TV/DVD with premium cable channels including HBO, Cinemax etc and the sports package, also well stocked bookcase and like all the rooms, stunning views of the beach.

Then there's the large, spacious kitchen/dining room where you can cook up some great meals - plenty of room for several cooks at one time if you dare! It is so well stocked with everything you need and has a large dining table seating 10 comfortably for family meals.

Also on the first floor are three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The ocean view room has all new furniture including a King bed and wall mounted flat screen TV. There is an adjacent new bathroom with double size glass fronted shower, vanity and toilet and large mirror. The second bedroom has windows on two sides , with twin beds, TV and it's own small bathroom with toilet, vanity and shower. On the other side of the living room is the third, smallest bedroom with a double bed, high ceiling, windows on 2 sides and a desk overlooking the ocean. (Great place to write that first novel!)

There is WIFI and also a land line phone with free nationwide calling.

A laundry room with washer and dryer are also on this floor.

The second floor boasts 2 bedrooms - the Master suite with a queen bed and French doors that open on to a beautiful recently built deck overlooking the ocean plus a newly remodeled bathroom en suite, complete with Jacuzzi tub and separate glass shower - very tastefully modernized.

The second bedroom also has a queen bed, high ceilings and also has French doors leading out to the ocean front deck - with the doors open you get lovely ocean breezes. There is also the fourth bathroom with tub/shower combo.

You can fall asleep to the sound of the waves on the sand below your window. There are ceiling fans in all the rooms, and the house also has central heat and air with individual climate controls on each floor.

Stepping outside there is a great 50 foot wide beach level patio/deck, partly covered which can be secured for small dogs/young children. There is a gas BBQ, picnic table and lots of additional seating - great place to escape from the summer sun, and enjoy the breezes.

You will love the ambience and cosiness that this unique cabin offers, along with the space and comfort for a group of up to 10 people.

We leave our books, CD player, gas BBQ, beach chairs and loungers, and even some boogie boards and kids toys - it's all there for your enjoyment. We are really proud of our family vacation home and look forward to welcoming you and your family. We hope you will love it as much as we do, and become repeat renters at our cabin.

Keywords: Historic beachfront log cabin. 5 bedrooms, sleeps up to 10. Pet friendly.

Come and enjoy the island that we love so much - this is what life is all about - you won't want to leave!

Rhona Walsh purchased this house in 2007

This is the perfect place to both live fulltime and vacation - you enjoy the great laid back island feel - but if you have to travel, Jacksonville airport is just 40 minutes away - and you can enjoy the arts in Jacksonville. Amelia Island has great restaurants and shopping - wonderful golf courses and miles of unspoiled beaches - what more could you want?

Enjoy sunrises right from the deck overlooking the ocean - walk the deserted beach and marvel at the dolphins playing in the surf, and the long lines of pelicans flying overhead. Search for those hard-to-find shark's teeth - and then in the evening return to the deck and watch the sky turn pink and making the ocean also appear pink, as the sun slowly sets - another magical day has ended on our little corner of Paradise.

COUPLE CELEBRATES ANNIVERSARY AT OCEANFRONT LOG CABIN

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I recently completed a week-long stay at the Log Cabin, and we could not have found a more perfect beach house to celebrate our anniversary with family and friends. Spacious and comfortable, the Log Cabin provided exactly what we were looking for - a large, pet-friendly, beachfront property in a great location. The kitchen was large and well equipped - we enjoyed eating at the large dining table. Everything else - living room, bedrooms, baths, etc. was just as advertised. And, best of all, we were just steps from the beach. We had a great stay at the Log Cabin, and we will certainly plan to stay there again.

AHHHHHHHH

  • 5 of 5
I hate to write this review because I want the log cabin to be available in the future. I have also been asked by friends in JAX not to tell people about Amelia Island and Fernandina Beach - because they want to preserve the beauty and pace by keeping it a secret. We were curious and researched the history to find the cabin was built in 1932. Locals know it has been there forever, a landmark property. We had the BEST family beach vacation EVER. The cabin has a very special feel to it and offers all the creature comforts you need. Seating for 10 in the kitchen, NO TV needed but available to check weather, the seating in the living area was so comfy. Sunrise to sunset beachcombing for sharks' teeth, riding our bikes on the sand, day trips to Fort Clinch and St. Mary's, AMAZING restaurants to choose from (don't miss Kelly's)- it just doesn't get any better. Memories for a lifetime. If you stay - enjoy the sound of the shell wind chime we made and left behind. Thanks Rhona!

FAMILY OF SIX

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from a wonderful week in this great log cabin in Fernandina Beach. We were three adults and three small children - we could have comfortably fit another 4 adults. Everything on the website - from pictures to amenities were just as as described. The house is clean, comfortable and feels very much like a family beach house (rather than an antiseptic condo). Books, puzzles, beach toys, etc. are there for you to use.

Great views, great beach access - roll out the back door and you are ready to start hunting for shells and shark teeth. I took a few runs along the beach and would argue that the beach access was as good or better than any other house I saw in the miles I ran - most houses have a walkway over the dunes that you need to cross to get on the beach - this house has direct access out the door. We didn't leave the house/beach for much other than a round of minigolf and a stroll down the nice mainstreet downtown for a meal and some ice cream.

Big thumbs up from our whole crew - it was just what we were looking for - we hope to return.

PERFECT BEACH HOUSE VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this amazing log cabin beach house for 3 nights: 2 adults + 6 kids .. it was the perfect size for us.

Being right on the beach was amazing, and the kids absolutely loved the log cabin house:
* the living room was the perfect hangout place
* the kitchen table fit us perfectly
* the flexibility to come in and out of the house from the beach..so convenient!

Amelia Island is also an amazing place. It was our first time there, and we absolutely enjoyed the downtown area, and the close shopping and restaurants. I love this little beach town tucked up in the northeast corner of Florida. We definitely want to come back, and this beach house will be exactly where we want to stay.

GREAT FAMILY REUNION

  • 5 of 5
We had an amazing week at the cabin. The location is perfect and we had the beach mostly to ourselves. The kitchen is probably the best feature of the house as we all love to cook and everyone was able to be right there keeping the cook company. We enjoyed evenings on the upper deck. Such a nice breeze. The outside of property needs some tender loving care in as far as the landscaping. That is about as negative as I can get. Would recommend to anyone.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your kind review - and I can happily say that we finally were able to get our yardman to the cabin and the outside now looks as neat and tidy as the inside! It was not for the lack of repeatedly asking our yardman to take care of it - he was just snowed under and hampered by previous bad weather and then playing catch up.
We are thrilled that you loved the cabin and hope to see you back in the near future!

WHAT A WONDERFUL FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
We had such a wonderful family vacation at your home. We absolutely loved waking up and being able to open the bedroom doors out onto the deck and have the ocean right there!
We hope to enjoy this again soon. It was really nice as well to have the boogie boards to use and the kids toys right there. It really feels like a home away from home.
