Lots of Character, Very Charming!

  • 4 of 5

My father, husband, daughter and myself stayed for a week again this year and were just as pleased as our first stay in 2010 which included my mom who has passed. We meet Ronda in her Antique Shop and found out about her rental beach house. This house has so much charm and character it truly feels like "home away from home". My daughter loves the bunk bed room! Ronda is a great host. She doesn't bother you during your stay but is always a phone call or walk next door if you need anything. We love that it's pet friendly! Our pets loves the beach too! I would definitely recommend this home as being very family friendly with lots of space to gather and/or separate to have some "you" time. We hope to return for another weeks stay in June 2013.

Thanks Ronda for another great vacation spent with my family on Amelia Island!

wonderful family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, children and grandchildren had a more than wonderful time in your charming beach home.Plenty of beds for all with a great dining area. The lovely antique pieces more than made up for the short counter space and besides, who wants to cook that much on vacation? I t was the perfect spot to relax, unwind, and and enjoy each other as well as the beautiful beach just steps across the street. So glad I found you on HomeAway.

Charming but needs work

  • 2 of 5

We stayed here for several months last year. The house has charm and the location is great. It would be a better stay with a little more routine care. There are window, furniture and TV issues. These things need to be fixed, updated or replaced.

Owner's Response: This guest stayed in my house for several months and I saw her almost daily since I live nearby and she never raised one issue or made one complaint about the house. In fact, she always said everything was great when I asked her how she was doing. I even allowed her to stay with the two dogs she showed up with even though she said she only had one!

We visited in August, 2009.

This is a quaint and well-decorated little house and has a good amount of space for the 6 adults and one infant in our group. Loved the antique accessories and the front porch is wonderful for hanging out. The upholstered furniture (sofas and chairs in living areas) need to be replaced soon as they were at the end of their comfort life! Loved the very short walk across street to the beach which makes it simple to go there often in a day.

Owner's Response: Just wanted to respond about the sofa and chairs needing to be reupholstered. The sofa in the family room and one of the chairs in the living room is leather and they are in good condition. The other chair in the living room was reupholstered last summer but, since this family was at the house at the end of the season, it did need to be cleaned. This chair and the sofa and the living room sofa are white cotton duck cloth so they have to be cleaned each season which has been done now for the winter guests! Thanks for considering my house for your vacation!

This was a fabulous vacation for me and my 3 teenage+ kids. From the moment we opened the front door, we were at home for the next week. The furnishings are comfortable and cozy. Plenty of room to be together or to escape for a little alone time. The beach across the street is incredible and not over crowded. We could not say enough good things about our stay at Ronda's house. If you are looking for a restful and relaxing vacation at the beach, this is the property for you. We also rented scooters to explore the island and would highly recommend it.
