Real Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Just love this cottage. It is well equipped, clean, and convient for fun in the sun. This our 3rd stay here, and this time we brought our bikes and enjoyed riding in all the nearby parks. Our dogs loved the backyard and we all loved the outdoor shower. Booking is easy and prompt. We are already planing our next visit. Thank you for sharing your home.

This house was clean, well-stocked with linens, spacious and PERFECT for my family of 4. It's just across an easily crossed road (not a lot of traffic) from public access to the beach. It was also really easy to go everywhere. My husband enjoys walking and had a beautiful walk to, through and back from Fort Clinch State Park. Downtown with all the lovely shops and restaurants was a five-minute drive (Salty Pelican, Timoti's, Pablo's we're all wonderful (great food / service) for family dinners with two younger teenagers), and there's a swim / surf shop a block away with anything we needed for beach items we'd otherwise forgotten. The kitchen was also well-stocked with utensils / pots / pans / dishes. We also enjoyed a lovely boat trip with Amelia River Cruises. The owner / manager, Rhona, was also very accessible and helpful. Loved this house and will try to return as soon as possible.

Cute, Cozy and Clean!

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is just as shown in the photos! We were very pleased to find it fresh and clean in all respects. Rhona, the property manager, was especially helpful throughout the rental process and was always responsive to any question we had. The location couldn't be beat, direct access to the beach right across the street and close to most everything on Amelia Island. The fenced in back yard was perfect for our cocker spaniel. Our only complaint is that we couldn't stay longer! We will most certainly visit Fernandina and the beach cottage again!

The perfect beach house!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place! The house is so charming, comfortable and clean. It's perfect for a small family or group. The location is stellar, right across from the beach! Everything has been thought out inside the house from the numerous baskets to the plethora of beach towels. Our 3 year old was obsessed with the outdoor shower which strategically had a door to the back bathroom. No inside sand anywhere! Love the color choices and furniture. Much more up to date than most beach rentals. Will definitely return!

This cottage was even better than described! It was spotlessly clean when we arrived, and every little detail was thought out for us. The beach access steps from the front door could not have been more convenient, especially with two small children. The ability to bring the dog was another bonus, and the owner Rhona was wonderful to work with. We hope we can rent this property the next time we visit Amelia Island.
