This is the perfect beach house for a larger family - or several couples. It is a historic log cabin, right on the beach. The sand starts where our deck ends. The heart of the house is the large, comfortable living room with such character - lovely inviting sofas to sink into, 42' flat screen TV/DVD with premium cable channels including HBO, Cinemax etc and the sports package, also well stocked bookcase and like all the rooms, stunning views of the beach.
Then there's the large, spacious kitchen/dining room where you can cook up some great meals - plenty of room for several cooks at one time if you dare! It is so well stocked with everything you need and has a large dining table seating 10 comfortably for family meals.
Also on the first floor are three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The ocean view room has all new furniture including a King bed and wall mounted flat screen TV. There is an adjacent new bathroom with double size glass fronted shower, vanity and toilet and large mirror. The second bedroom has windows on two sides , with twin beds, TV and it's own small bathroom with toilet, vanity and shower. On the other side of the living room is the third, smallest bedroom with a double bed, high ceiling, windows on 2 sides and a desk overlooking the ocean. (Great place to write that first novel!)
There is WIFI and also a land line phone with free nationwide calling.
A laundry room with washer and dryer are also on this floor.
The second floor boasts 2 bedrooms - the Master suite with a queen bed and French doors that open on to a beautiful recently built deck overlooking the ocean plus a newly remodeled bathroom en suite, complete with Jacuzzi tub and separate glass shower - very tastefully modernized. The second bedroom also has a queen bed, high ceilings and also has French doors leading out to the ocean front deck - with the doors open you get lovely ocean breezes. There is also the fourth bathroom with tub/shower combo.
You can fall asleep to the sound of the waves on the sand below your window. There are ceiling fans in all the rooms, and the house also has central heat and air with individual climate controls on each floor.
Stepping outside there is a great 50 foot wide beach level patio/deck, partly covered which can be secured for small dogs/young children. There is a gas BBQ, picnic table and lots of additional seating - great place to escape from the summer sun, and enjoy the breezes.
You will love the ambience and cosiness that this unique cabin offers, along with the space and comfort for a group of up to 10 people.
We leave our books, CD player, gas BBQ, beach chairs and loungers, and even some boogie boards and kids toys - it's all there for your enjoyment. We are really proud of our family vacation home and look forward to welcoming you and your family. We hope you will love it as much as we do, and become repeat renters at our cabin.

About: Come and enjoy the island that we love so much - this is what life is all about - you won't want to leave!
Why Private Homes: This is the perfect place to both live fulltime and vacation - you enjoy the great laid back island feel - but if you have to travel, Jacksonville airport is just 40 minutes away - and you can enjoy the arts in Jacksonville. Amelia Island has great restaurants and shopping - wonderful golf courses and miles of unspoiled beaches - what more could you want?
The Unique Benefits at this House: Enjoy sunrises right from the deck overlooking the ocean - walk the deserted beach and marvel at the dolphins playing in the surf, and the long lines of pelicans flying overhead. Search for those hard-to-find shark's teeth - and then in the evening return to the deck and watch the sky turn pink and making the ocean also appear pink, as the sun slowly sets - another magical day has ended on our little corner of Paradise.
