WE had a wonderful time here.

  • 5 of 5

We had cousins camp with our six grand kids. Older home but very clean. Furniture was comfortable. Definitely would stay here again. Mike was great to work with.

A wonderful week!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect. Very clean and neat, lots of pretty trees in the yard. Having linens on the bed at arrival was so nice! It's a very short walk to the beach from which our family did lots of surf fishing (caught and released LOTS of fish). Everything we needed was in the house; we ate out a few times but cooked most meals in. The beach is beautiful and not crowded. There is a closetful of games and puzzles, too, for hot afternoons or rainy days. We took a day trip to Cumberland Island, GA (ferry from St. Mary's GA, about 50 minutes drive from the house). It was a worthwhile adventure. Otherwise, we relaxed and took long walks on the beach, enjoyed the house, and visited the historic downtown in Fernandina Beach. Very pretty. There is a skateboard park a short drive away and one of our children spent a good bit of time there. A family friend flew into the Jacksonville airport which is barely 30 minutes away. The owners are very helpful and thoughtful and we plan to go back.

Relaxing Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

I visited this property when I was younger and now shared it with my husband, son (17), daughter (15), and her friend (15). We enjoyed the quick walk to the beach, shopping downtown and in near by Yulee, eating in and out, and visiting Fort Clinch State Park. Shell collecting during low tide at the park fishing pier was absolutely wonderful! We also found several shark teeth! The house had everything we needed, including a shady front deck for early morning coffee and night time relaxing.


Mine - how stress free the vacation was

Husband- outdoor shower with hot/cold water

Son- wifi

Daughter and friend- playing family games at the dining table, and shell collecting (they did not want to leave!)

Mike was extremely easy to work with and provided helpful suggestions for our trip. We are already planning our next visit!

The house was perfect!! Just what we needed for 5 adults and 2 children. It had everything we needed including beach toys, chairs, and boogie boards. It was a quick walk across the street to the beach, and close to stores, restaurants, and downtown. We loved the Salty Pelican restaurant downtown and all the quaint shops. This was our first time here, but definately not our last. The owners were so gracious and accommodating. We look forward to staying there next year !! I would recommended this property to anyone with a family ready to enjoy the beautiful beach!!

Our Florida get-away

  • 5 of 5

We're repeat guests at Mike & Lisa's "Shellcrest". This is our sixth year as snowbirds, which should tell you how highly we prize the opportunity to stay at this property.

The location is outstanding; a quiet street but just a 5 minute walk to the beach. Short walk to fast food, beach bars and fine dining. It's also a great location for bicycling.

The accommodations are top notch. Master bedroom, kitchen, and open floor plan are all on one floor, so no stairs to climb.

Kitchen is fully equipped, and plus outdoor cooking on the backyard grill. Mike & Lisa make sure the property is well-maintained, and do regular updates. All of our guests have fallen in love with the place too. We're already looking forward to coming back next year!
