Great location, cheap, simple, nice people, great vacation
Directly across the street from beach access. That's what I cared most about. Price appropriate for the place. Rented through a realtor's office. The realtors and owner (all family, I believe) couldn't be nicer. Simple, easy transaction and a restful, simple, vacation. Just what my family needed. It was nice to be able to bring our 35-pound dog for our two-week stay. We didn't bring her to the beach much, but it's fine to. Can walk the dog a few places right near the house - just clean up, of course. Highly recommend these restaurants: Le Clos (quaint French), Espana (tapas - shrimp with pirri pirri sauce exceptional; grilled calamari was fantastic one night, rubbery next), 29 South (breakfast, lunch and brunch -- fried green tomatoes, pulled pork spring rolls, mac and cheese with lobster, shrimp and grits) and Peppers (cheap Mexican and margaritas). Barbara Jean's was just alright. Crab Trap was pretty awful. If you're really into cooking, you'll want to bring some of your less common tools with you. The kitchen is stocked with very basic stuff (but fine for vacation). Buy bottled water. Fernandina Beach water is funky. Thanks for a low key, easy, relaxing vacation!
