About the property

3 BR, 2 full bathrooms, 1 half bathroom, sleeps 7 plus infant

Ocean breezes sweep this airy two story home, directly across the street from the beach with ocean view. Entering this 2 story home on ground level finds 2 BRs (1 w/queen & 1 w/2 twin) sharing bathroom w/ tub/shower, double sink. Upstairs a sunny great room awaits with desk w/internet, living room sitting 6+ comfortably, bay window with ocean views. Kitchen stocked for beach home living, from pots & pans to blender & wine glasses. Over the double sink is a counter bar for easy serving while enjoying ocean views over full dining table & sliding glass doors to balcony. King Master suite has walk-in stone shower, garden tub and separate toilet room. Cross the street for 13 miles of beach, or drive 10 min to Fernandina Beach historic district, antique shops, restaurants and bars, Fort Clinch museum, golf, boating, fishing, horseback, etc. After the beach enjoy outdoor hot shower to wash off sand (& kids) before going inside! Beach chairs, umbrella, cooler, and sand toys.

Amelia Island has 13 miles of pristine beaches. It is a beach vacation to get away from it all - there is little night life in terms of 'south beach. Perfect for young families, honeymooners who want to get away together, or folks who just want to relax. Yet, the location is accessible to all shopping and has fabulous restaurants nearby. But if you want to plant yourself somewhere and escape - just bring groceries - the home has everything you need to hardly ever leave - and if you forgot anything one of 4 grocery stores is a 10 minute drive away.

There are many state parks nearby in addition to the miles of beach. Fort Clinch, with the fort from the 1800s restored is great to see. Much wildlife to see on various hiking trails.

Water activities include chartering a boat, sunset cruises, cruises to see sea life and wild horses, fishing - deep sea, pier and shore, surfing.

Fernandina Municipal Public Golf course is regardeded as one of the finest in the southeast - 5 min drive away.

Dining: From the Ritz Carlton restaurant 'Salt' 15 min drive south to romantic restaurants in downtown historic district 15 minute drive north to the casual bar/restaurant walking distance from our home - there is everything you could want for an island getaway.

Shopping: There is quaint local shopping in the historic downtown Fernandina Beach and other places on the island. There is Town Center, one hour drive away in Jacksonville, which has every shop imaginable if you are staying a long time. Supermarkets, walmart and pharmacies are on the island.

3 TV's one in living room and one in each of downstairs bedrooms. Upstairs living room tv has full cable channels - downstairs basic. There is internet connection to plug in your laptop if you bring one.

Very comfortable and easy access to everything you could wish for . Very clean condo

  • 5 of 5

This condo worked out well for us for our time while working in Jacksonville- the unit was very clean and well kept. furnishings are getting a bit worn but everything was in good working order and location is very convenient to all the amenities you could want to enjoy.

An easy walk to the beach and the beach area was pristine and very enjoyable.

Thank you for a nice stay

Very nice,enjoyed staying there.

  • 5 of 5

The owners were very accommodating. The property manager (Britney) was very helpful when I called. The house was very clean when I checked in. The only issue I had was with the neighbors dog was allowed by his owners to do his business in others yards. I ended up cleaning up after him during the time when my pets were with me. They stayed with me for two weeks only. The trash can was taken,not sure who. I suspected the trash company because it did have a hole it. Britney helped me with that problem. I felt very comfortable. It was nice to be able to see the ocean from the house and enjoyed the access to the beach. There is plenty of things close by to do. Grocery stores are close. Also nice to have access to a garage for my car. Thankful to have the opportunity to stay.

Property was very nice and well equiped (as advertised)!

  • 5 of 5

The town, home and beach community combined for a perfect vacation. Located a short ride from town and directly across the road from the beach the house was very clean and well appointed. Carolyn (owner) and her property manager were responsive and very gracious to deal with. We would highly recommend this property to anyone seeking a laid back beach experience and will definately return for another vacation at her home on Amelia Island.

Perfect family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This house and location was very well-suited for our summer family vacation. Each bedroom and adjoining bathroom was comfortably sized and offered enough space and privacy to share among the adults and children. The location, across the street from beach access, was close enough to make quick runs back to the house for anything forgotten. The supply of beach chairs and sand toys provided made packing for our trip much easier with less to find room for in the car. Fernandina's downtown district is a short drive away and offered a fun afternoon with the kids to shop and eat as well as an adult evening to check out some of the great local restaurants. The owner and property manager are very responsive to any needs, and I feel confident that any issues during our stay, had they arisen, would have been handled swiftly.

Very nice rental, superb location

  • 5 of 5

we enjoyed our quick Thanksgiving getaway at this place a lot. The location is absolutely perfect, literally just steps away from a beautiful beach. It is also close to a lot of nice dining and shopping on Amelia Island.

The property itself was very nice and clean, equipped with everything a family might need. We had two dogs with us. The owners were really nice and accommodating. Definitely will share this place with friends and relatives and hope to be back soon :-)
