About the property

4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, sleeps 8

Newly renovated from top to bottom! Perfect for those who like the convenience of walking out of the back door to head to the beach!

Rosie's Retreat is a charming, cozy beach home with interesting accents and accessories that you don't often find in rental units. The attention to detail makes this home a special place to stay!

This home has been a duplex with 2 bedrooms and 1 bath on each level. We decided to add steps to the inside and 2 more bathrooms, making it a 4 bedroom, 4 bath!

We just installed new siding, and Andersen windows and doors. We are excited about the new look and think that you will love the coastal charm!

Hoiday Fun on the Beach!h

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving at “Rosie’s Retreat”! We had family coming in from across the US and the home was perfect! The kitchen was incredibly well stocked with plenty of cookware, place settings and flatware for our feast. Everybody loved the well-appointed guest rooms each with a private bath. There was also ample parking for our three cars in the front. What we loved most was all the thoughtful amenities throughout. Upscale bath amenities and high thread count sheets and upmarket terry cloth in each guest room. Loads of beach chairs and fun indoor and outdoor games for all ages were in ample supply. Amy was super responsive, helpful and knowledgeable with loads of ideas about the local area. We will be back!

Fabulous Week at the Beach!

  • 5 of 5

September was the perfect month to visit this sweet home nestled in Fernandina Beach ocean front homes. With this being post hurricane week, shell hunting was incredible. We found many treasures to take home. Love sitting on the beach at sunset until there is no light left. Then you can walk back up to Rosie's Retreat and find total relaxation. This week began as girls' trip and culminated with our husbands joining us. This spacious home has a great living area for everyone to gather and enjoy time together while at the same time there is plenty of privacy with each bedroom having a private bath. The kitchen is well stocked if you choose to stay in and cook. However, there are tons of fabulous restaurants on the island to meet all of your dining needs. Some of our favorites included T-Rays, Café Karibo, Salty Pelian, and Moon River Pizza. The island also has great shopping from antique stores to book stores to clothing stores. Many unique finds. Rosie's Retreat is convenient to all! I will definitely rent this place again. My husband and I will look into bringing our adult children here for some family time. Highly recommend!

All the comforts of home

  • 5 of 5

Had a great stay at Rosie's Retreat with my family of 5. Everything you need is already here, right down to laundry detergent - just drop your bags and hit the beach! The property was clean and comfortable. Everyone loved having not only their own room, but bathroom too! Amy was such a pleasure to work with, you can tell she genuinely cares about your stay. Her attention to detail makes Rosie's Retreat is the perfect spot for a relaxing and enjoyable beach getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We really loved this house and it's amenities and we used them all. It has a well stocked kitchen and we really enjoyed having a full bath with every bedroom and the ping pong table and bean bag toss were an unexpected bonus. Amy is a joy to work with and was VERY accommodating to our needs. We will definitely be back!

Perfect place for a family or a group of couples/friends

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely beautiful place. The decor is stunning and so are the views. About 40 steps to the beach. It's in the perfect location! Right down the road from many places to visit- the state park, downtown Fernandina with lots of awesome restaurants and shopping, a cute surf shop (Driftwood), and 3 different play grounds for the kids.

We went with 6 adults and 2 small kids. Not necessarily the most kid friendly however it worked out perfect and we managed to make it work! If you have a small child that sleeps in a pack n' play, they have the best bedroom upstairs with a large bathroom that will hold the pack n' play. I also love they have newly added, barn doors so you can close off certain areas of the house. It felt like each family had their own area without being bothered.

Amy is super responsive and checked in with us to make sure we had everything we needed. I reached out to her to let her know that one of the beach chairs (which they provide) was broken when we first got there and she offered to have someone bring another one right away. I thought that was great of her. I would highly recommend staying in Rosie's Retreat!!!

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!
