About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 14)

Direct, oceanfront home with large deck that has breathtaking view of the Atlantic Ocean to enjoy the beautiful sunrise. Only steps away from the sand! Lots of houses state they are oceanfront; they are oceanfront, just far far away from the water. We custom built our house on this lot because this is as close to the water on this island as you can get. No boardwalk nor street to cross you can literally hear the ocean from the bedroom and see the dolphins swim by you are so close. The interior is tastefully decorated with beach decor to make your stay perfect. 4 bedroom, 3 baths. Great room has leather recliners for relaxing and dining area has large table that seats 10 and the island bar seats five. Large space under the house for a picnic and grilling. There is an outdoor shower (with warm water) to rinse off the sand from the beach! New ceramic tile and carpet, just redecorated, black granite counter tops. Just purchased all new Simmons Heavenly Westin Mattresses/box springs for all beds.

Beds include two full, four queens, and one king, all large beds no twins. The rocking chairs are delightful to just sit and rock feeling the ocean breeze. The sunrise over the Atlantic Ocean is just beautiful if you are a early riser. After lunch the porch get a shade

over it and Grandparents just love this to sit and rock watching the "Grands" play on the beach never having to leave the porch it is that close. Please read all the reviews you will find our house very accommodating with all the amenities. Great room has vaulted ceiling with lots of large windows to capture all of the beautiful panoramic ocean view of God's creation. The master bedroom has it own private balcony when you are laying in the bed looking out it is like being on a cruise ship seeing nothing but the dynamic Atlantic Ocean.

It is 20 minutes from Jacksonville, Florida International Airport. It is located three miles from the Ritz Carlton. Enjoy activities on the island including fishing, horseback riding, beautiful golf courses, and shopping downtown in historic Fernandina.

Wonderful restaurants abound the island. Great fun downtown for the entire family. Horse drawn buggy tours, trolley tours, river cruise, chartered fishing, Fresh seafood at the docks right off the shrimp boats. Saturday morning there is a great fresh market.

Great shopping all over island with unique stores and sovereign shops.

About Diane Hopkins

My husband's great grandfather built a house direct oceanfront in the 1920's this island has made lots of GREAT FAMILY memories for generations now, the house is still there. We are carrying on the tradition making great memories with our children this is a great beach relaxing and very enjoyable.

Why Diane Hopkins chose Northeast Florida

This area has the most beautiful beaches in North Fla. and is only 30 minutes from a major airport. It is a quite island abound with resturants and shopping. We custom built our home,

it is very close to the water, no dunes to cross, step off onto the sand about 30 yards

from the water. The large paved driveway provides lots of parking for vehicles and even your boat!

What makes this house unique

We have always enjoyed surf fishing or going out in the boat. My son enjoys surfing.

Waking up to a beautiful sunrise over the Atlantic having coffee overlooking the ocean is

a great way to start my morning. We are exactly one mile from main beach a great daily walk.

This is a very quite area great for sitting my chair in the edge of the water reading.

This is next to heaven! Dining on the front porch for breakfast or dinner is my favorite eating spot. Large area for Low country boil downstairs in the breezeway area is great.

Tour beautiful Cumberland Island by boat, a trip you will never forget, beautiful wild horses.

Enjoy the historical downtown area with unique shops, great dining for lunch and dinner. On

Sat. morning a great fresh market area. The famous homemade fudge shop. Unique toy store.

Great dining by the docks facing the smoothing water. Fresh caught local seafood market. Great for a low country shrimp boil. At the main docks you can buy fresh seafood right off the shrimp boats daily. You must visit the fresh market on Saturday mornings. Fresh vegetables straight from the farmers, homemade breads and cinnamon rolls, fresh pasta, etc.

Visit the oldest saloon in Florida (Palace Saloon). Plenty of night life in the downtown area. Kayaking is a great experience and it available for you to get a guided tour or on your own. You can rent the kayaks at two different locations. My family and I did this and it was so much fun.
