Private Homes house description

This beautifully decorated unit is one of two units located in a private home in a residential area on the Atlantic Ocean at Fernandina Beach, Amelia Island, Florida. These two units, on the first floor of this home, provide a quiet, restful atmosphere far from the noise and activity of hotel or condo vacations.

The owners occupy the second floor, are available for any assistance, but are completely unobtrusive. The second unit in this home is a one bedroom and can be viewed at VRBO 300510. Rented together, ten guests can be accommodated. Discounted rates are available for booking both units. Please e-mail or call if interested in both units.

Each unit has its own heating and cooling system, private entrance, exits, covered porches and decks.

This two bedroom unit has living room and master bedroom oversized sliding glass doors which open to a private deck and ocean views. The ocean is a short walk down the dune walkover. A hot and cold outdoor shower is also provided.

Both bedrooms have private baths. The master bath is equipped with a large shower and is accessible from both the master bedroom and the hallway. The second bedroom has a queen size bed and adjoining bath with Jacuzzi tub and full shower. This bathroom also includes the washer / dryer. A comfortable sofa in the living room is also a queen sleeper.

The kitchen has a pantry and spacious cabinets, new appliances, stove and oven, garbage disposal, refrigerator with icemaker, microwave and dishwasher. Other amenities include: Wi-Fi access, all cooking and eating utensils, all bed and bath linens, VHS / DVD player, cable TV, and central heat & air conditioning and all beach supplies.

Amelia Island is home to the quaint and charming Historic Fernandina village, a step back in time to the Victorian Age, located only five miles from the beach house. Nearby activities include unique downtown shopping in the Historic District, a multitude and variety of restaurants, wildlife viewing, hiking, biking, golf, tennis, miniature golf, fishing, river sailing on a three masted schooner, horseback riding on the beach, cinemas, museums, sailing, shelling, and two local theatre groups. If you prefer day trips, Cumberland Island National Park is available by ferry to hike and view the wild horses and other wildlife or to visit Greyfield Inn for a romantic evening at the Carnegie Mansion. You may also choose a day trip south to the oldest city in the nation, St. Augustine, Florida or north to historic Savannah, Georgia.

Fernandina Beach, on Amelia Island, is located only 30 minutes north of Jacksonville, Florida. Enjoy its 13 miles of pristine beaches, wonderful river and ocean views and the quiet, peaceful solitude of this beachfront home.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1989

                  About the owner: Jim and Brenda Platt - We are retired from long careers in telecommunications and have traveled extensively in the US and abroad. We've been many beautiful places but none are as beautiful as Amelia Island. The island still has the small town feel and people are friendly. Nature thrives on Amelia!

                  Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                  Amelia Island is a unspoiled barrier island with pristine beaches, thrilling wildlife and the most charming Victorian village in the South.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Quiet evenings with silver moonlit seas. Wonderful sunrises. Beach that is never crowded. Flocks of pelicans, waterbirds and dolphins. Our property is located in a residential area away from the commercial feel of condos and hotels.
