"Thank you for sharing your comfortable, welcoming home. Our family had a relaxing and enjoyable vacation because of you. We truly appreciated the extras: boogie boards and sand buckets, shovels, and beach chairs. Also, we enjoyed your selection of CD's. The beach is beautiful and just a 50 yard walk away. Your kitchen was well-equipped, conducive to large groups, and away from the sleeping areas. We also appreciated the grill and back porch seating. The house is great."

"Our stay at Pelican Roost with our three small dogs was outstanding. Very clean and ready to go when we arrived. We truly enjoyed having easy and private access to the ocean. We loved Brenda's personal artwork painted on the walls. Brenda and Jim also provided all the beach items such as chairs, umbrellas, coolers on wheels...etc...etc. The private boardwalk leading to the ocean beach has cushioned benches that allowed us to look out towards the beach and take magnificent selfie's and views of the ocean. Caught a few dolphins on camera in the early mornings while strolling along the shoreline. Our pets are accustomed to water and were able to enjoy long walks along the beautiful soft sandy beach. We highly recommend this location and will be returning again in the near future."

"My family enjoyed our week here in July. It is a lovely home and in a good location. The home had everything we needed and I loved the open layout. We have 3 year old twins, and a 2 year old and the house was very toddler friendly. Although we did not use it except for storage, the garage was a nice bonus. The homeowners have several beach items such as chairs and toys that are located in the garage. The wi-fi was good and fast enough to watch Netflix which is always nice to have. The master bed slept nice and the in-laws didn't complain about the other queen bedroom. The only complaint my wife and mother-in-law had was a lack of place to store food. Most of the cabinets contained dishes or other kitchen needs, so we had to rearrange things to make more room to store food.
The deck offers a great view of the ocean and is a nice place to relax in the mornings and evenings. The deck floor has recently been replaced. I noticed in the guestbook it said that they may add a staircase off of the deck leading to the beach walkway. That would be a great addition if it happens. The walkway to the beach has a little age, but not dangerous by any means. It doesn't have a lot of stairs, which is nice when having to lug a lot of beach equipment.
Rhona, the property manager, was a pleasure to work with throughout the process and was always fast in her replies. We had an issue with the dishwasher not working right because of a mistake in the hookup of the new garbage disposal and her team was able to fix it in a timely manner.
The house had everything we needed. We chose to bring our own linens. I brought my tea pot to make tea, but it even had one of those. The only bedroom that has a tv is the master, so that may be in an issue for some people.
Overall I would highly recommend this property and hopefully will be able to rent the house again next year!"

4 1/2 Stars: Beautiful Fun Place but pets & beach questions
"Would come back again. Great place for my family of 8 adults and 4 grandchildren (8-11 yrs). Very eclectic decorations. Clean, modern, upscale. We all had fun just looking at the decorating, especially the kids. Very tall ceilings gave it a very open feeling. The 3rd floor kitchen living area was great and being on the corner gave a broad open view of the surrounding area. Pretty well stocked on essentials, even coffee filters. Rhona was a pleasure to work with. Loved her accent. Convenient store with good supply of beer, wines, and limited food items just to the right. Surf restaurant to the left, good food, bar, music, games. Both are very easy walks. Fernandina Beach Muni Golf course very close, low rates as a prep for the Ritz Carlton Course.
Some minor considerations: You're not really on the beach even though the pictures and map give you that impression. You actually have to look between two large condo buildings to see the view in the picture. The map does show this apt across the street from the beach if you increase the magnification enough. Pet restrictions include the additional process and a higher cleaning fee. But you also need a vet Rx to verify that your pet is on prescription flea medication. All good reasons but my kids looked at the dogs in the pictures and though they could just bring their yorkie dog. Good thing I called, they ended not bringing a pet. More stairs than typical for a 3 story building due to very high ceilings. May be a concern for some folks."
