Far Exceed Expectations

  • 5 of 5

We have been vacationing on Amelia Island for over 25 years and have stayed at many condos. Mostly on The Plantation. This year we decided to venture out and rent a house. I can honestly say it was definitely the best decision we made! Even with a little rain we were able to enjoy ourselves with the spacious house. We have every age group - from adult children to grandchildren. We have several family members that stay at BeachWalker and the location was perfect for us to meet up with them on the beach and to visit. The owner was an absolute pleasure to work with. The house is exactly, if not more, than the description given. Extremely clean, spacious, wonderful location, very private, well-maintained, stocked beyond anything you can imagine! Owner has thought of everything and has taken a lot of time to provide a personal book with restaurant recommendations, things to do, etc. You cannot imagine how this house is such a relaxing place to be. Very nice but not stuffy - very open and comfortable! We loved the outdoor bar and grill area to relax in the evening. We will be back - actually have already booked for next year! Can't wait!

Wedding Bliss

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house over the Labor Day holiday during our son's wedding. Pictures and descriptions of the house are very accurate. The only thing they shortsell is the location. It is ideally situated within Amelia Island Plantation. We hosted the rehearsal dinner at Walkers Landing with its beautiful sunset--a special evening for us. Most of the out-of-town wedding guests stayed at The Inn, but our family of five stayed at this wonderful-true to its name-- Beachside Paradise. It had every amenity we needed plus was such a calm and serene aesthetic, which balanced the wedding frenzies perfectly. It was a lovely place to host family and friends who stopped by. The teens loved running off to the beach which was a short, fun hike away. Senior family members just enjoyed having a peaceful, yet beautiful place to park themselves. Our family would love to come back here to this house and resort as we were so caught up in our wedding agendas that we did not have time to do all the fun activities such as kayaking, golfing, nature hikes. We did go out on the beach in the mornings for the sunrise--breathtaking--and even got some full-moon night hikes on the beach. Such a great time! We will be back!

Welcome to Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year in a row at Susan's Beachside Paradise, and we already made reservations for next year. We love it so much we're starting to think of it as "our place in Florida where we go once a year". We had a very stressful drive down (Friday traffic in Charlotte delayed us for four hours), but as soon as we walked in the door, all that melted right away. This place is downright therapeutic when it comes to relaxation.

There's no better place to spend a morning than on the chaise on the back deck, waking up slowly with a cup of coffee, watching the birds and squirrels and chamelons chase around the yard. It feels like you're in the middle of a Disney movie. The back yard reminds me of the garden of Eden, it's amazing. Very quiet, totally private and blissfully peaceful. Located on a cul-de-sac, there's no traffic or street noise going by, so you can feel right at home from the first day you arrive.

In the kitchen Susan provides nearly everything you may need except your basic groceries. All the right cooking equipment, a wonderful kitchen, an alcove outside with a granite top bar where guests can have cocktails with the host as he prepares dinner on the grill. You could easily accommodate a lot of guests in this house if you have a party.

Fernandina is the coolest town I've ever been to. Make sure to go into town and check out the many restaurants and bars, and if you find yourself looking for something easy, there's a pizza place right on the Plantation where they make the best pizza my wife or I have ever had anywhere. It's called the Natural Slice. Delivery is fast and the pizza is epic. Get the 16 inch pizza for about ten bucks.

See you next year, Susan, we're already looking forward to it. We've spent too many years looking for someplace in Florida that we like well enough to come back, but we've finally found it. We're getting to feel right ay home at Beachside Paradise. Thanks again for letting us use it.

Perfect for Family Time

  • 5 of 5

The house is in a quiet, convenient location and was perfect for our family of 6 adults and one active 20 month old. Susan even provided a Pack & Play for our grandson. It was great to have the beautiful beach nearby and the birdwatching in the backyard was fun too. Wish we had more time to use all the provided amenities. Definitely worth a return visit!

Fantastic House and location

  • 5 of 5

This property was everything I could have wanted for my vacation. As previous reviews have stated, the house is stocked with everything you need, clean, and Susan is super-responsive on email. It has such a great vibe, I know I will be coming back next year. I loved that it's tucked away in the trees and yet the beach is just a couple of minutes away. I looked at many properties in this price range and this was by far the best I found. Highly recommended.

Owner's Response: Thank you Brook for taking the time to write a 5 star review. I appreciate it. And thanks so much for booking a week for next year. I'm so glad you're coming back. Also my thanks to James who makes sure the outside is clean and ready for every new guest and to Yolanda who makes sure the house is absolutely spotless. They are a big part of the reason we get 5 star reviews! See you next year Brook! Susan

Pristine/private/user friendly beach house

  • 5 of 5

The most impressive feature of this unique beach house was the way the owner reads the needs of the guests and makes everything clear and available for their comfort. The house is like one would visualize of a South Seas Island....insulated from the sun by a canopy of treetops, the sun and the sea can be found by a short walk to the beach.......beach accoutrements are available as well! It is so welcoming to have such shade and privacy when returning home from the beach. The house is mostly glass and open to the world. The outside bar area at the grill is a nice touch for visiting with the grilling person. The furniture had fresh upholstery and all was clean and sparkling. Notes on the cabinets were the ultimate caring thing telling of the contents. We will return!
