Why Amy Davis chose Amelia Island
We have vacationed on Amelia Island since I was a child. After I had children, we continued to visit Amelia Island. At some point we decided to visit other beaches. My children begged to go back to Amelia Island! We have always enjoyed searching for sharks' teeth, collecting seashells, biking downtown for ice-cream, feeding the birds.....Amelia Island is the place we long to be!
What makes this Cottage unique
We fell in love with this property because of this little cottage. When I saw the unbelievable view of the ocean from inside the cottage, I started to cry. (And my husband knew it was a 'done deal'!) Our cottage has so much charm and character! It was built years ago, before the building setbacks were put in place. The location of our cottage is right on the sand! You just can't get any closer to the water! I think Amelia Island is special because it is not too commercialized. When you drive onto the island, you immediately feel the slower pace, the relaxed feel of the island! The main beach street has some new construction, but it also has a nice mix of old beach cottages that have been in families for years! It really adds a lot of character to the island. If you visit the downtown, you feel as though you have stepped back in time. Families are strolling along the sidewalks and peeking into charming shops, locally owned bookstores, and coffee shops. You can't leave downtown without a taste of ice-cream or homemade fudge from the Fantastic Fudge Shop!

Lovely and Charming
Nothing better than waking up to a beautiful sunrise and being able to walk along a fabulous beach.
Best views inside & out
Best oceanfront option on all of Amelia Island and best price, single family home or condo. Direct ocean access and direct oceans views from inside and from deck. Owner took great care in trying to stock everything a renter may need or want. Much, much nicer than most beach house rentals.
Only con was on a non-windy day, which is rare, you may smell the paper plant for a couple of hours in the morning when outside.
Highly recommend. Would definitely rent again.
Thank you so much for your kind review! I’m so happy that you enjoyed your stay. Guests like you make sharing our home a pleasure! Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Happy 2020!
This was my second visit to this Darling cottage on the ocean. Spectacular sunrises over the sea. The cottage is very clean and well equipped. The owner checked on our stay several times and was always available to answer questions and offer suggestions for dining. We will definitely return to this precious jewel.
Thank you for writing this kind review. I’m excited that you want to visit again. Repeat visitors are the best! Sometimes i get the opportunity to meet my guests and I LOVED meeting you and your husband! I hope to see you again soon!
The Cottage is the perfect beachfront venue. The interior is extremely comfortable and cozy and the view from the living area and decks is amazing. Literally, only a few steps from the beach, but the decks are so comfortable that it’s as if you are already on the beach. Amy’s decorating talent makes the interior warm and welcoming. This is the second time we’ve stayed at one of Amy’s properties (the other was Rosie’s Retreat, a larger house located immediately behind the Cottage), and both have been exceptional. Amy is very responsive and helpful. It’s location is not only perfect for lounging on the beach and/or ocean viewing (like watching dolphins do headstands, which we did one day from the deck), but it is within walking distance of the Sandbar & Kitchen via the beach, and is less than 2 miles from the shops and restaurants of historic downtown Fernandina Beach in one direction and a Publix supermarket, liquor stores, and other restaurants in the other direction. We love this place and plan to return.
It was our first time at Cottage By The Sea and we were elated that the cottage was so close to the beach, just as the description said. There was a huge deck/porch on the front with plenty of room for the table and chairs for alfresco dining. I would describe the inside as boho-eclectic. I loved the colors of sofas, pillows, lamps, etc. The furniture was very comfortable and well placed. The only thing I was a little disappointed about was the outside shower wasn’t working. We will definitely enjoy Cottage By The Sea again.
Just what we were looking for 😎
My girlfriend and I absolutely loved this place! If you like staying right on the beach, warm weather, and little beach towns, you will too. Love the proximity to the ocean front restaurants and bars just a short walk away. Plus, it’s only 1.5 miles or so to downtown Fernandina Beach that has more restaurants and shops to explore. Five stars for us! We’ll be back, no doubt!
The local recreation center is a short walk from our Cottage. The pool is very nice!
