The foyer leads you into a beautifully decorated 1550 square feet “home away from home.” The townhouse features one bedroom and one bath downstairs and two bedrooms and one bath upstairs. (Sleeps maximum of six.) There are three flat screen TVs, comfortable mattresses, extra nice furniture, custom window treatments, and custom made Wilkinson bedspreads and shower curtains. There is also a washer and dryer inside the downstairs bathroom for your convenience. In addition, there are two beach chairs and an umbrella for your trip to the beach.

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 few years so it is in extraordinary condition.

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 but at night, you can hear the roar of the ocean.

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.

2 family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time staying in Fernandina Beach. The condo was very well equipped. The pool was perfect for the kids. The unit was very close to a playground and a shower for cleaning the sand off from the beach. We were able to walk a very short distance with all the kids in tow each day with little problem. We had beautiful weather and thoroughly enjoyed our trip. We are looking forward to staying here again if we get the chance. The bedrooms were large and the beds were super comfortable. The owners were very nice and accommodating.

Great Place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property. The complex that this condo is located in was very clean and the residents were friendly. The pool is great and the walk to the beach is not bad at all (even with a 2 year old). The owner was very helpful. We found that the shower in the upstairs bathroom was draining slowly. I called the owner and he sent his local contact person over the next morning to fix it. I would definately stay here the next time I visit Fernandina Beach.
