The Atlantic Ocean is your front yard, Fort Clinch State park is your back yard. Beautiful sun rises and sun sets. Five minutes to historic downtown Fernandina Beach.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1997

About the owner: We are 'retired' residents of Amelia Island and own and operate a small construction business as well as manage our 3 vacation rental properties. We came to Amelia Island as permanent residents in 2003 from the Northeast and made this peaceful island paradise our home.

Why the Owner Chose Other Fernandina Beach Properties:
We purchased this property in 1997 as a weekend get away. We found that Amelia Island was easier for us to get to than braving the traffic to get to the New England beaches. We chose this property because it is located in the quiet north end neighborhood and has 300 feet of direct ocean front as well as Fort Clinch behind us. This end of the island is all residential, there are no hotels, condos, public beaches and very little traffic. Most of the properties are single family homes or duplexes. Our beach is beautiful white sand and is never crowded. We take long walks to the fishing pier. Our dogs love to run at the end of a long leash, dig holes in pursuit of whatever creatures and dive in the waves. This beach is also a great spot to swim, as it is not prone to rip currents and has a gradual slope to deeper water. Low tide is a great time to hunt for shark teeth or collect shells. It really doesn't get any better than this.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This a stilt house which gives us great views and a protected place to park cars and boats. We do welcome pets. We have 3 dogs of our own. That is Mister Buster in the picture and he has a twin Cairn Terrier, Mister Bronson who looks just like Toto. They have an older brother Zippy the porky Yorkie who also loves the beach. The main living area of this house is tile, the decks have a child/pet gate at the top of the stairs. This area of the beach always has a breeze so you can sit on either deck depending on your preferred view. The east deck has roll out awnings to provide shade during mid day.
