Northeast Florida Townhome Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath (Sleeps 4)

Beautiful sunrises, warm waters, sharks teeth, and the relaxing summer breezes greet you each morning as you get ready for a casual easy vacation. The refreshing sunrise picture on the left illustrates the tranquility of this beach vacation.

If you love to shell hunt, read books, or just sit back and count the sea gulls, this is the site for you. This is a laid back, non-commercial, no frills island where the family is the ideal vacationer.

Only 50 footprints to the ocean and 13 miles of unobstructed beaches. Surf fishing, beachcombing, and sunbathing are the activities of choice on our private beach just steps away. All you need for a wonderful vacations are your beach towels and sunscreen.

Historic Fernandina Beach: Amelia Island has had eight flags fly over our beaches and marina. There is a wonderfully projected museum that depicts the history of our beautiful island.

Fernandina has 50 blocks of historic homes and buildings. There is also a great State Park called Fort Clinch in which there are enactments very month.

The quiet beaches allow for visitors to just relax and chill out.

Please Call for availability we don't use the calendar on this site.

Truly a slice of paradise

  • 5 of 5

First off I need to say that Jim and Judy are just tops when it comes to providing just what you need to make a trip to Amelia Island. Their duplex is stocked with everything you'll need to make your trip and time on the island as relaxed and rested as could be possible. Clean as a whistle, close to the beach(It's so close I walked barefoot), walking distance to Main beach park and about 5 minutes by car to Downtown Fernandina beach. All this for a little over $100 a night? Pelican Palms is the best deal on the beach for sure, no doubt.

A fine place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay. Place has been well maintained. It's nicely furnished, clean, and everything worked properly. There were no surprises. Owner gave us time to settle in, and then came down to make sure everything was satisfactory. This set the mood for a great vacation. Sliding door to side deck is convenient to take dog out. Only one house away from beach. And only one block from Main Beach park, Putt-putt, Skateboardboard park, and Sandy Bottoms restaurant. Near Ft Clinch park entrance, and near historic downtown with all restaurants. I appreciate that the house did not have an excessive amount of signs telling you what you must do or must not do. Owners are well established in the community and were very considerate hosts during our stay. It didn't pose a problem, but I might say the master bed was too soft because of the 3" foam pad, but my wife like it. This was our 3rd stay at Fernandina beach, and all accommodations have been to our liking.

Pelican Palms - Fantastic Property with Great Owners!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment you drive up and open the front door, you are at home! Everything is right there including the ocean. Very quiet and peaceful location close to Main Beach. The entire property is well maintained, inviting and comfortable. The owners Jim and Judy - awesome!! We recommend to anyone who prefers the North End of the Island for your vacation. Cannot wait to come back to Pelican Palms, visit with Jim and Judy and hit the beach!!

Perfect family setting!!

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect location for our family for vacation!! We were looking for something low-key, close to the ocean, with non-crowded beaches, and we couldn't be happier. This is not our first trip to Amelia Island, but it is our first time staying at this location. With all the amenities of a house, the very, very short walk to the beach made is so easy with small children. You really will just need your beach towels--everything else is here! We loved the property, and we will be back!!
