Watch the sunrise from the spacious deck of this charming beachfront cottage or spend an afternoon watching the local surfers as they ride the waves. Located on the quiet northern end of Amelia Island, this is the perfect getaway for a small family. This cottage sits on stilts overlooking the pristine waters of the Atlantic. The only thing between you and the ocean is a sandy one-way lane used to access these quaint family beach homes. Enjoy the beach like a local, by enjoying an ice cream at the oceanfront park with playground or playing a round of Putt-Putt Golf, all located only one block away. You will love this quiet, safe beach where City of Fernandina Beach Lifeguards are on duty during the daytime. After a day on the beach, stroll downtown to the Historic District to enjoy dinner at one of the many fine dining establishments. You will find everything from sandwich shops to 5 Star Restaurants, with most offering fresh seafood daily. After dinner, swing by the local coffee shop for dessert and a cafe au lait, or cross the street to the fudge shop to watch candy being made by hand. Don't forget to check out the local boutiques, art galleries and antique shops where you will find original and one-of-a kind items and artwork. After the sun goes down, you'll want to visit the local pubs, where you will find a variety of live music. Bike, moped and golf cart rentals are available from local vendors. Each Saturday morning there is a local farmer's market where you can buy everything from fresh vegetables and artisan breads to handmade enchiladas and boiled peanuts. If you prefer a pool to the ocean, the City of Fernandina pool is a 5 minute walk. It is heated during cooler months and boasts an incredible kids area. Right next door to the city pool is brand new 'Pirate Playground' one of the few all inclusive, handicapped accessible playgrounds in the state. It was designed with children of all abilities in mind.

Why the Owner Chose Other Fernandina Beach Properties: We choose this area of the beach because of its quiet, family-friendly atmosphere. This is where the locals go for a quiet day at the shore. Most of the beach houses in this area are owned by families who have vacationed here for generations. The northern end of the island exemplifies that laid back, 'old Florida' lifestyle that we think our guests will love.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: We want our renters to feel like they are guests in our home. We have lived in Fernandina Beach for over 40 years and are available for restaurant and activity recommendations and any questions they may have. We go the extra mile to make sure guests enjoy their beach vacation and return again and again.
