Great for families.
This property and Amy (the owner) were great. The house was clean and stocked with all the essentials. Amy even had plastic cups, games and Legos for the kids. The property is located just minutes from a grocery store and large retailers. And it's about 40 minutes away from the Jax Zoo, which is a fun outing for the kids. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. Sunrise from the balcony was epic. And access to the beach was quick...the only recommendation I'd offer is to clear the path to the beach a bit more. This place was wonderful and Amy was a fantastic host. I highly recommend it.
Little slice of heaven
Rosie's Retreat does not disappoint. As soon as we walked through the door, I exhaled and relaxed. Amy is wonderful and has impeccable design taste. This home is nicer than most. You won't find a cuter, better stocked, more comfortable house on Fernandina Beach! We will be back. Restaurants and activities that are walking distance from the house are fabulous. We had lunch at Salt Life one day and it was some of the best food we had all week. I was able to walk out the front door and have a great 3 mile run on the sidewalk that runs all the way down Fletcher Ave. I guess because we visited after Florida schools were back in session, the beaches were very quiet. That's why I say it was our little slice of heaven.
When the reviews say that everything you need is in the house, they mean it. Not having to pack beach chairs, beach towels, umbrellas, dishes of any kind...it was SO nice. Our family of 6 stayed extremely comfortable at Rosie's Retreat. Everyone having their own bathroom and bedroom was the cherry on top!!
Thank you for such a wonderful home away from home, Amy. You guys are truly a rare find!! :)
Wonderful beach retreat
I highly recommended Rosie’s Retreat. We just spent a week there and the accommodations were wonderful. The house is very comfortable with charming decorative touches. We loved all the living spaces where we could gather as a family or spread out and have our own spot on the porch, futon chair, upstairs sitting area or game/puzzle table. It is perfectly located on the beach and near Main Beach where we could walk to a couple of restaurants. It was also a short drive to downtown Fernandina which is a great place to shop and eat as well. The owner was very responsive and the home was well furnished, the kitchen well stocked and beach towels and beach chairs were available to use as well. We hope to return again sometime! It was a great first trip to Amelia Island.
We enjoyed our stay so much! The location was great - so close to downtown (lots of restaurants and grocery store nearby) and the beach was just an easy walk down a short path. There were so many great touches throughout the home and it was equipped with everything we needed. Very kid friendly too! Our kiddos enjoyed all of the legos and blocks. The owner was very responsive to our every need. We look forward to coming back again!
Fabulous beach trip
Amy, We had a wonderful stay. Your retreat is adorable. We were thrilled with all the extras. You go above and beyond to make sure your guests are comfortable and provided for. The house was clean and so well equipped - every kitchen tool, an appliance you could want, paper towels, trash bags, cleaning supplies, laundry and dish detergent... Thank you for making our trip easy and enjoyable. It was nice meeting you and talking with you.
Perfect escape to the beach
Where should I start? I didn’t want to leave! This house is so pretty and quaint. It was perfect for our family of six with grown children. We had all the comforts of home and then some. Everyone was comfortable with their bedrooms and bathrooms. The family area was a great size for everyone. What a beautiful view from this house. Amy was a great owner to work with and checked on us throughout our stay. We will definitely stay here again. When it was time to leave, I wanted to wrap my arms around this house and give it a big hug goodbye!
Plenty of activities to keep you busy.....although most guests prefer to relax with a good book on the beach! Take a tour of Fort Clinch, a horse and carriage tour through downtown Fernandina, a Segway tour through one of the nearby state-parks, or ride horses on the beach. Stroll the cobblestone streets of downtown Fernandina and browse the many gift shops, antique stores and art galleries. Make sure to take an afternoon visit to the Fantastic Fudge Shop for ice-cream or homemade fudge!
