Private Homes house description
This house offers quaint Florida beach charm along with the most perfect beach location - literally just a few steps from the deck to the sand!
This house is the perfect 2 story house for both small and large groups - the main floor has a nice kitchen with breakfast bar and bar stools, also kitchen table for sit down meals - washer/dryer are also located in a corner of the kitchen and there is a full bathroom here too.
The family room is light and bright with 2 sets of sliding doors - one leading on to the side deck and the other set leading on to the main deck and beach.
Sink into the comfy sofas and get a break from the hot sun - watch tv on the flatscreen - or maybe plug in your Ipod and listen to music while playing some board games.
Three bedrooms lead off the living area - the master bedroom has a queen bed with memory foam mattress and flatscreen TV and an adjoining bathroom; then there is another queen bedroom and the third bedroom has 2 twin beds. All bathrooms in this house have showers only.
If you are a larger group then you will also want to rent the lower level - there are no internal stairs in this house - you do have to go outside to access the lower level. Downstairs is also light and bright and has another small kitchen, a large living area perfect for all the kids to sit and play or watch tv on a rainy day and 1 double bedroom and 1 twin bedroom. You have the convenience of a second washer/dryer on this level and a full bathroom and there is also a sleeper sofa. So each level can sleep a maximum of 6 people.
Downstairs there is a glass sliding door leading on to the small covered deck area - this is also where the outside shower is. To reach the upper level you just have to go up the outdoor steps to the upper deck.
There is a separate climate control for each level.
Linens and towels are not provided with the house - however they can be included for an additional fee.
This house is not close to public parking, so the beach is never crowded here. After a complete beach renourishment last year, there is lots of room to spread out even at high tide.
The historic downtown is less than 10 minutes away - there you will find wonderful restaurants, inviting ice cream stores, fascinating stores to browse through and a beautiful marina where you can see many boats coming and going - be there in the afternoon and watch the charter fishing boats unload their catch.
Well behaved pets are permitted for an additional fee - there is a city leash law and litter pick up law that we respectfully ask that you strictly adhere to - fines are imposed for littering the beach.
It is possible to rent the main floor only of this house - call for those rates. This does not apply to High Season between Memorial Day and Labor Day.

Great family reunion beach house!
Great family reunion beach house!
We had our first family reunion and the layout of the house was perfect.The families with young children stayed on the lower level and the adults without kids stayed upstairs, which suited everyone. The house is immaculate and very nicely decorated (don't be fooled by the outside - they spent the money on the inside of the house where it matters most).Internet availability was appreciated and used by adults and kids. The landlady is very gracious and though we did not have any problems while we were there, I am sure she would have been very responsive if we needed her. Coffee on the back deck in the morning, wine on the deck in the evening,and looking at the water was so relaxing that we could not stop talking about how great this place was for a vacation house.Definitely one of the best places we have stayed.

Incredible peaceful retreat
Incredible peaceful retreat
This was the best get away ever. It was our second time visiting Amelia and this charming house was just right for our family of four plus Grandma and our pet. The property was clean,comfortable and sitting on the deck with direct access to the beach was convenient and relaxing. No need to carry anything to the beach,just take a few steps to the sand and enjoy morning coffee in beach chairs and take in the ocean breeze and view. We could go downtown to Historic Fernadina for shopping and fine or casual dining, in just minutes. Many nights we simply enjoyed simple meals and sat at the table just on the opposite side of a sliding glass door facing the ocean. The listing on Vrbo was an accurate representation of the property and once we arrived and spent 10 days there we fell in love with this oasis even more. We would stay at this property again and look forward to when we can. Great for a family vacation .

The beach is fabulous; miles of white sand, shells, sun. This beach house is well stocked, comfortable and very livable. Restaurants and shopping are just minutes away. We loved it.

About: Happy to live right here on Amelia Island and always want to share our little corner of paradise with vacationers - you will fall in love with the island just as we did in 1986!
Why Private Homes:
My husband and I manage this property - we live very close by. You are right on the sand in this house. It is an older home but has lots of beachy charm and is the perfect house for families.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This house is wonderful as it can sleep 6-12 and is 2 story - if only 6 people are staying, it is possible just to rent the upstairs, and lock off the bottom floor - thus making it more affordable for a smaller party. The outside deck is just steps from the sand - sitting on the deck at almost any time, you can see the dolphins playing in the surf; see incredible sun rises - definitely worth getting up early even on vacation! This house is located on a great part of the beach - quiet and never crowded - a kids' paradise!
