And if you are lucky enough to be staying here during a full moon you will be amazed watching the moonlight dancing on the crashing waves and hearing the song of the sea from the balcony...a beautiful site and feeling to behold! These are some of the special things I love about the beach along with hearing live music at Slider's from our balcony and the short walking distance to popular area restaurants like Sliders, Cedar River Seafood, and for the ice cream lovers a Dairy Queen all in walking distance or a short ride to Cold Stone Creamery. After your treat, walk over to Hall's Beach Store to rent a bike to ride.

Our home was decorated and nicely furnished to be our 2nd home before we decided to rent it occasionally for others to enjoy it the way we do. It is not a big home, but perfect for smaller families like our own, being parents of only two grown sons it was just the size we needed. We feel our home is perfect for a family or friends of six. We truly take pride and enjoy the beach, relaxing and all the fun our jewel by the sea has to offer. We hope our guest love this place as much as we do and all the fun things to do on the Island. We feel the closeness of walking distance to a few Restaurants comes in great for dinner.

Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: We are a retired couple that love the area of Fernandina Beach on Amelia Island. We have both family and friends that live there on the Island and have been vacationing at it for over fifty years. We strive hard to make sure our guest feel at home as much as we do.
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes: We have stayed all over this island and looked long and hard before making a decision on what part of the beach we wanted to be at. The last home we stayed in before buying we notice it seemed as though the beach was closer to the homes. Sure enough, if you look at the map this area is closer...guess thats why they made the round-a-bout and Seaside Park a block from our home. For sure, it is a very popular area with a vacation vibe.
The Unique Benefits at this Townhome: After searching for 4 years we finally found what we had been looking for. The brand new construction of this townhome was a delight with many extras like granite countertops, glass/tile baths,recessed and upscale lighting ,etc. after going into so many older homes and leaky ceiling condos..even though some were right on the beach, we preferred this home right across the street that had never been lived in and had all the features we were looking for and the area of the beach we wanted. It only took one look and we knew the short
steps across the street would be worth the walk to live in the
type of home we both desired...and we have never regretted it! It
is wonderful to be on the beach all day and to know our home is close enough to run home and have lunch and stroll back and
fourth with ease. In the evenings, we love being on the balcony
and listen to live beach music while sipping our favorite beverage
and enjoying the sounds of the ocean and the sea breeze, or the
benefit of walking steps down to a wonderful restaurant for a
walk on the beach by moonlight.. just some of our favorite things to do close by. And If we want peace and quiet while watching a
favorite tv show or movie all we have to do is close the sliding
storm windows and pull the blinds. It truly offers the best of both
worlds: excitement or relaxation.
