Charming Ocean Front Duplex with Incredible View

Bedrooms 4
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

Rental prices are per side of duplex. Each side has 2 bedrooms and 1 bath.

Gorgeous view from this oceanfront duplex. You couldn't be closer to the beach. Each side of the duplex has two bedrooms and one bath and can be rented separately. Each bedroom has in it a double bed and a single bed. THE INITIAL RATE POSTED IS FOR ONE SIDE ONLY. If you want both sides please inform me at the time of your inquiry and if both are available, I will reset the rates to reflect both sides before approving your rental request. The interior of this charming cottage is decorated with soothing beach colors and hand painted furniture. If you rent it once, you'll be back again and again.

Amelia Island is a fabulous vacation spot for families. On the island is historic Fernandina Beach's Victorian downtown area full of shops and fabulous restaurants. The island also offers great fishing, bike trails, historic Fort Clinch State Park, an abundance of golfing and antiquing. And yes you will find surfers on this island. The duplex itself is within walking distance of main beach with its waterside playground and ocean front restaurant but also far enough down the beach for privacy and peace. The island is less than 50 minutes from the Jacksonville International Airport. Cumberland Island with its wild horses is just a short boat ride away. Pets allowed with the owner's prior permission. Some breeds not allowed.

About Pam Hart

Hi, I grew up going to Amelia Island and always wanted a place there. My whole family loves it and that includes the dog, Jazz, our border collie. I think Amelia is unique because of the victorian downtown and the beautiful wide beaches. I love biking on the island (the Katie Ride For Life is great!), swimming in the ocean, beach walking and enjoying coffee on the deck in the morning watching the dolphins or horses going by. Amelia is the last island in Florida which allows both dogs and horses on the beach. Also, even though the island is compact, it has a fabulous selection of restaurants and it is convenient to Jacksonville and the airport. Additionally, Amelia has lots of history and Fort Clinch state park.

Pam Hart purchased this cottage in 2001

Why Pam Hart chose Amelia Island

The Victorian downtown, beautiful beaches, not wall to wall high rises like other areas of Florida, friendly people and this particular property as close on the beach as you can get on the island. Also easy bike ride to downtown from duplex and easy walking distance to Fort Clinch State Park and Egans Creek Parkway.

What makes this cottage unique

Drinking coffee and watching dolphins and sunrises on the ocean right outside of your window.

Great sunrises in February quiet beach walks

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my daughter and her best friend. We loved the location. On the beach, I got up at 7am to watch the sunrise both days we were there. Each day I walked the beach (my guess 4 miles in each direction). The beach is great for walking. What's great about the beach is that dogs are allowed so everywhere you look there are dogs with thier owners enjoying the beach. As far as the duplex goes we had comfortable beds. The place is tiled and equiped with what you need. I am looking forward to coming back and staying here again. The location is great. The house is nice and will meet all of your basic needs.

I loved down town I listen to livemusic 5 diffrent places had great food in cool little restrants.

Amazing views and treasure hunting

  • 5 of 5

We had a blast!!! We were there for a the week of May 10-17-2017 and was lucky to have the full moon at night. It was an amazing view as well as the sunrise every morning. Every day it seem as if the beach changed. We would lots of shells of different kinds every day. Some days you can find sand dollars and if lucky enough a sharks tooth. We will be back. Thank you Pam for making our first booking with VRBO an awesome vacation.

What a wonderful find! This duplex is absolutely perfect. Beautiful view,very comfortable, convenient location and Pam thought of everything you need to enjoy your stay.Sunrise on the new deck with our coffee was fantastic. Our dogs enjoyed their walks on the pet friendly beach.Each Saturday we got fresh local shrimp at the farmers market and cooked it up in the very well equipped kitchen. We found 38 sharks teeth in a week!! Very relaxing stay, Quiet, peaceful area. Can't wait to come back in March! Highly recommend this duplex.

Owner's Response: Hi Patti, thank you so much for this kind review. I'm so glad that you had such a nice and relaxing visit! I'm jealous about the sharks teeth though. What a find! I must have lost my touch finding them. If I can help you in the future, please let me know!

Relaxing Week

  • 5 of 5

We love this place!! The only way to get closer to the beach is to sleep on a sand dune. Enjoyed the week so much. We had everything we needed to cook at the duplex. We went to Mayport twice for fabulous shrimp from the seafood market. We let them do the cooking on those days. We can't wait to come back.
