Property description

Gorgeous view from this oceanfront duplex. You couldn't be closer to the beach. Each side of the duplex has two bedrooms and one bath and can be rented separately. Each bedroom has in it a double bed and a single bed. The interior of this charming cottage is decorated with soothing beach colors and hand painted furniture. If you rent it once, you'll be back again and again.

Amelia Island is a fabulous vacation spot for families. On the island is historic Fernandina Beach's Victorian downtown area full of shops and fabulous restaurants. The island also offers great fishing, bike trails, historic Fort Clinch State Park, an abundance of golfing and antiquing. And yes you will find surfers on this island. The duplex itself is within walking distance of main beach with its waterside playground and ocean front restaurant but also far enough down the beach for privacy and peace. The island is less than 25 minutes from the Jacksonville International Airport. Cumberland Island with its wild horses is just a short boat ride away. Pets allowed with the owner's prior permission. Some breeds not allowed.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: Hi, I grew up going to Amelia Island and always wanted a place there. My whole family loves it and that includes the dog, Jazz, our border collie. I think Amelia is unique because of the victorian downtown and the beautiful wide beaches. I love biking on the island (the Katie Ride For Life is great!), swimming in the ocean, beach walking and enjoying coffee on the deck in the morning watching the dolphins or horses going by. Amelia is the last island in Florida which allows both dogs and horses on the beach. Also, even though the island is compact, it has a fabulous selection of restaurants and it is convenient to Jacksonville and the airport. Additionally, Amelia has lots of history and Fort Clinch state park.

Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
The Victorian downtown, beautiful beaches, not wall to wall high rises like other areas of Florida, friendly people and this particular property as close on the beach as you can get on the island.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Drinking coffee and watching dolphins and sunrises on the ocean right outside of your window.
