About Paul Werling

Paul & Karen Werling - We live locally which allows us to keep a daily eye on the condition of the property and provide an excellent vacation experience.

Paul Werling purchased this house in 2004

Why Paul Werling chose Northeast Florida

This property is directly on the beach with no long boardwalks to traverse to hit the sand. Easy to watch over family members while enjoing the beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great Beachfront Duplex"

We love this place! We've stayed here the last weekend in October for the past four years and couldn't think of a better place to stay at Fernandina Beach. We plan on staying there every Fall for as long as we can.

We needed a place to unwind after our Bahama Cruise and found this jewel, just 25 minute from Carnivals Jacksonville Port. Like the description said, "Steps to the Sand". Any closer and the waves would knock you down. Duplex was updated and nicely decorated. We stayed 3 nights and it was so relaxing falling asleep listening to the crashing of the waves and waking to the sunrise. Owner was easy to deal with and we definitely look forward to staying here again and taking advantage of all the tranquility this property and Amelia Island has to offer.

Great view, very clean

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here over spring break and fell in love with Amelia Island. Best vacation we ever had. We stayed in the left side and it was very clean and we had a great time. Paul was a great host. We would highly recommend this place. We will be back :)

Beach rental

  • 3 of 5

The floor plan and location of this rental were perfect. We had two major issues: We had some fairly nasty smells that came through the walls of the bathroom in the master bedroom. Room freshener did not help. We tried to keep the bathroom door shut at all times to keep the odor down in the bedroom. The shower in the main bathroom did not work properly and you could never get a full spray from the shower. Most of the water continued to come out of the lower faucet, causing you to stand in 4 - 6 inches of water throughout the shower.

Owner's Response: We are terribly sorry that you had a bad experience at our beachfront home. This is the first negative response that we have had in 10 years. We live only 10 minutes away and if we had known of any issues, we would have been over there immediately to correct any problems or would have moved you to another condo on the beach. Paul & Kare4n
