About Gene and Lydia Mason


Townhouse purchased with retirement home in mind. We have only shared it on short term (minimum 7 days) for the past six years.

Gene and Lydia Mason purchased this townhome in 2005

Why Gene and Lydia Mason chose Northeast Florida

We felt that Forest Ridge was a sleeper village where we would enjoy settling into one day soon. It is a block from the Atlantic Ocean but at night, you can hear the roar of the ocean.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Perfect place to enjoy our escape from Michigan in February!

  • 5 of 5

We spent the month of February in your condo for our first visit to Fernandina Beach. We found your location to be perfect in many ways. The short 2 block walk to the beach was easy and we appreciated having the lawn chairs available to us. We were also within walking distance to the Dairy Queen, and the Seafood restaurant next door to it. Also, Sliders restaurant is a short walk and several times we ate on the patio next to the beach and enjoyed their fabulous seafood chowder and chicken wings. The condo is close to Sadler Drive which takes you towards I-95, to the Winn Dixie or Publix and also towards the Historic District. We found the location to be perfect for our month long stay.

We found the king size bed very comfortable and the walkin shower was a nice feature in the downstairs bathroom. The entire condo is beautifully decorated with photos, lamps and other items that have beach themes. The living room furniture is very comfortable.

The deck is furnished with comfortable lawn furniture and we enjoyed our lunch out there as the weather was warm and wonderful for most of the month.

We certainly hope to return to Fernandina Beach another time.

Great time in a great house!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful house with us for our family vacation. We loved it, it was perfect for our family, convenient to everything we wanted to do, comfy and wonderful. We loved the location and the tennis courts were perfect for my tennis loving family. The pool area was comfortable and we enjoyed spending some time there. We were very close to the guarded beaches and spent lots of time there. The house had everything we needed, was extremely comfortable and wonderfully equipped. If we decide to go back to Amelia Island, I would definitely rent from them again!! Thank you!!

Perfect short stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at the townhouse for five days in February and could't have been more pleased with it. The furnishings and all of the amenities were first class. We enjoyed the location with the short walk to the beach, where we took a morning walk each day. The weather cooperated and we even sat on the beach a few afternoons, which were appreciated when the alternative was sitting inside our house in cold and wintry Pittsburgh. We will make every attempt to stay here again in the future and would like to thank the owners for making their townhouse available. The town of Fernandina is a hidden treasure on the northern coast of Florida with many opportunities to have a relaxing vacation without the constant traffic of other coastal areas.

Super home for family fun and enjoyment!

  • 5 of 5

This was a first for our small family to celebrate a reunion and a birthday. The grandchildren had a great time on the beach, in the pool, and on the playground. The townhouse is very beautiful in every way. The pictures do not do justice to the beautiful furniture and decorations. Every room is lovely, and supplies every convenience of home. For grandmother it was a blessing, and it so easily met all the needs for everyones' enjoyment. The food at every restaurant was delicious------Miss Carolyn's is a must at least once for breakfast!! We went twice. It makes a nice ending as you are all packed up and saying good-bye to the wonderful week! I would say to anyone that is planning on going for a relaxing visit to the beach that this beautiful place is a must. We plan to visit as often as we can, because you can't ask for nicer accommodations and lovelier people to rent from for your family's fun. Thank you, Lydia and Gene, for sharing your lovely rental with us. Eulalie Woeltjen

Perfect family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My family of four, plus my mom and younger brother really enjoyed our stay! The townhouse was very clean, spacious, and comfortable. The house had a well stocked kitchen and lots of extra towels, blankets, and beach items. We walked the short block to the beach and enjoyed the closeness of shops and historic downtown Fernandina Beach. We also enjoyed a short trip to the St. John's River Ferry and rode it out to Mayport and enjoyed some fresh seafood at Singletons. The owners are very kind and accommodating, and I would highly recommend staying here. My family and I would like to stay again next summer! Thank you for sharing your home with us!

Absolutely wonderful place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this townhouse, everything was so convenient. We loved the pool, playground, and the neighbors were so friendly. The owners are great, if you have any questions they respond quickly. Townhouse is close to the beach and shopping, the kitchen was well stocked with plenty of towels and cooking utensils. All the beds were comfortable. Loved the location and privacy of the townhouse just a couple minutes to beach, about ten minutes to the historic part of town. Can't wait to book it again wouldn't want to stay anywhere else.
