Private Homes house description

Free Linens * Designer Interiors * Panoramic Views * 2-story Fireplace * Kid-Friendly Features * Privately owned, Professionally Managed

This charming, beachfront vacation home is a stone's throw from the sand dunes and ocean surf, located in the peaceful North Beach neighborhood of Amelia Island. Wake up to watch the waves from the master bed, with a pelican's eye view of the water. An 180-degree, wraparound deck overlooks seagrass dunes to the shore just 50 yards away. Barefoot walks before breakfast are easy with the dune walkover in front of the house.

The house may be relatively modern, but it is full of history. From the moment you open the porthole front door, you will begin to discover relics from an old ship inside. The boater's pine paneling rise to a vaulted beamed ceiling, reclaimed from a historic church decades ago. The antique sailboat model on the two-story stone fireplace reflect life on a barrier island, surrounded by seas and rivers, stones and sand.

Recently renovated in tasteful nautical decor, we have preserved the original architecture while adding modern furnishings, appliances, and new designer bedding. Now with High-Speed Wireless Internet Access, you can surf the web and watch the surf at the same time.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2003

                      About the owner: Ocean Glory has been a labor of love for us ... serial renovators with a love of the ocean and a belief that cookie-cutters are for sugar cookies, not houses. We were blessed with the opportunity to buy a place that had a fascinating history, on the market for just 6 days that we stumbled upon and fell in love with. Yet, it desperately needed updating. We spent more money fixing and re-furnishing Ocean Glory than our own residence in Atlanta, creating a place of memories for our young sons, friends and family. We are delighted to be able to share Ocean Glory with missionaries, church staff and others who are in need of a special getaway. May your stay with us will bring you a bit of the blessing we've experienced in owning it.

                      Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                      For us, we wanted a place that was an easy drive from home ... just 6 hours from Atlanta. While we looked in the Destin area, St. Augustine, south Georgia islands and more, there was not a place that matched the history, character and recreation options of Amelia Island. We call it 'Mayberry on the Beach.' It's a place with very real, down-home people; no hyper-inflated prices; gorgeous, safe beaches; great places to shop and dine; and all the golf/tennis/riding/kayaking/boating/culture we might want in one place. No wonder it's one of the top 5 islands in North America. (Traveler Magazine readers think so, not just us!).

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Panoramic Oceanfront Views Inside and Out, Two story stone fireplace, Distinctive Design, Privacy and Peace (not on A1A), Free Linens, Free Wifi, Free Beach Gear
