About Chris and Dick

We are 'retired' residents of Amelia Island and own and operate a small construction business as well as manage our 3 vacation rental properties. We came to Amelia Island as permanent residents in 2003 from the Northeast and made this peaceful island paradise our home.

Chris and Dick purchased this house in 1997

Why Chris and Dick chose Northeast Florida

We purchased this property in 1997 as a weekend get away. We found that Amelia Island was easier for us to get to than braving the traffic to get to the New England beaches. We chose this property because it is located in the quiet north end neighborhood and has 300 feet of direct ocean front as well as Fort Clinch behind us. This end of the island is all residential, there are no hotels, condos, public beaches and very little traffic. Most of the properties are single family homes or duplexes. Our beach is beautiful white sand and is never crowded. We take long walks to the fishing pier. Our dogs love to run at the end of a long leash, dig holes in pursuit of whatever creatures and dive in the waves. This beach is also a great spot to swim, as it is not prone to rip currents and has a gradual slope to deeper water. Low tide is a great time to hunt for shark teeth or collect shells. It really doesn't get any better than this.

What makes this house unique

This a stilt house which gives us great views and a protected place to park cars and boats. We do welcome pets. We have 2 dogs of our own. That is Mister Buster in the picture and he has a twin Cairn Terrier, Mister Bronson who looks just like Toto. The main living area of this house is tile, the decks have a child/pet gate at the top of the stairs. This area of the beach always has a breeze so you can sit on either deck depending on your preferred view.

Quaint House with a Great Location

  • 4 of 5

My family enjoyed our week long stay. The house fit our needs, a place to shower, sleep and be together. We loved that the dining, kitchen, living area was one open area. During the pop up thunderstorms, we were able to hang out in the drive under parking area. The beach was semi-private and the men and boys enjoyed surf casting every morning and late afternoon. They caught sand sharks, whitting, a 18" sea trout, black tip shark, bonnet head shark, baby hammerhead, and sting rays. The kids loved the ocean and the powerful waves to boogie board. The only item that could use more attention was the cooking pans. We cooked a majority of the meals - including the fish we caught - and the cookware was well used. The morning we left, there was a little bit of rain, but we were able to keep everything dry because of the drive under parking. We will definitely love to rent here again.

Great vacation with family!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great vacation on Amelia Island! Chris and Dick were very gracious and helpful! The house butts up to Fort Clinch state park and we enjoyed seeing deer everyday cross over to the beach. The house was very clean and we grilled out using their grill (which was also very clean). A lot of times you rent a beach house and because the house is on the beach the grill is all rusty and dirty but not this one. There's also plenty of outdoor furniture which was also a plus! Plenty of things to do in Fernandina beach, but if you run out of things to do I recommend spending a day in St. Mary's Georgia and taking the ferry to Cumberland Island!

Great house and quiet location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. The house was really comfortable and well equipped. The beach was never crowded and there were plenty of shark teeth to find. If you are looking for a quiet spot where you will see more local deer than you will see people, this is it.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our week at the beach. We had two families and the layout of the house was perfect with the kids sharing the third bedroom. The easy access to the beach was perfect and we saw deer every evening. The house was clean and very comfortable. We are sad to leave!!

Had a great time, good size, nice location. The beach was pretty vacant which was nice. Found lots of shells. Saw lots of deer every evening and morning. It was a great place to just relax and enjoy family time.

Our cottage is located in the Northern residential section of the Island where the beaches are private, there are no condos or commercial sites. The road is a dead end so the traffic is local and light. The cottage faces the ocean with unobstructed views and to the west is Fort Clinch State Park. We have full length decks both back and front. All three bedrooms have patio door access to the decks. Beach driving at various locations, shark tooth hunting, skate park, Historic Fort Clinch, sunset cruise, fishing, golf, all 2 miles or closer. Historic and quaint downtown has wonderful restaurants and shopping. Watch the sunset from Brett's patio. Dine at some of the best restaurants in Florida. Charter a fishing boat, take a ride to Cumberland Island for a stroll and dinner. Enjoy the new bike trails on Amelia and Big Talbot Islands.
