5 Stars/5 Years
"This is our fifth year vacationing at Brenda and Jim's paradise personified in Turtle Cay. We have also stayed in the 1 bedroom Pelican's Roost. Both are fantastic. This year, we were married on the boardwalk overlooking the ocean! How fabulous and wonderful that memory is now and for the future! Our dogs were part of the ceremony! Jim and Brenda make this place and your vacation a stress free paradise, it is the perfect vacation spot! All you need to bring are beach clothes and not a lot of those as there is a washer and dryer, your fishing rods and reels, golf bags as the courses on Fernandina and Amelia Island are the best, and the the attitude and latitude of Jimmy Buffet playing in your heads! We have already reserved our 6th year!"

"My family of 4 spent a week here over Spring Break and are already making plans to return next year! The minute you walk in, a gorgeous view of the ocean greets you. It is unbelievable how close you are! We had a view of the water from our bedroom, and the first morning I woke up to the sunrise and a dolphin swimming in the surf.
The cottage itself is beautifully decorated and has everything you need. So many books and games, plus beach toys, beach chairs and towels, umbrellas, and boogie boards, etc. There is an outdoor shower and hose to keep the sand off, which was very convenient. It was great to have a washer/dryer too. The cottage was immaculate. Great location -- we rented bikes for the week and biked to Fort Clinch and Egan's Creek Greenway, as well as restaurants in the area.
Marlee was great to work with and always readily available. Can't say enough about how great this vacation was and we can't wait to return!"

"This is our second stay in this condo, and we loved it just as much this year as last! The owners are wonderful and ensure that check-in and check-out are hassle-free. There is covered parking and the condo has everything you could need for your stay (linens, cookware, coffeemaker, washer/dryer, etc.). The furniture is attractive and comfortable and the condo is very clean. The upgrades to the kitchen since our last stay were a bonus! There is a nice view of the ocean from the porch, which is a perfect spot to enjoy your morning coffee. The grounds at Sand Dollar Villas are well maintained, the pool is always clean, and the easy access to the uncrowded beach is ideal. Our kids especially enjoyed being able to hang out at the pool after long day on the beach. We also like making the short drive into downtown Fernandina Beach in the evening, which has small town charm and a variety of excellent local restaurants. We will definitely be back next year!"

"First off this house is absolutely gorgeous. The decorations made this place feel like a true home away from home. It’s not made super clear in the description but the house is three stories, with the kitchen and living space being on the third floor. That made for a great view but was a bit of a pain to carry groceries up three flights of stairs. The bottom floor is the pool table room with a pull out couch and two roll away beds. The second floor is where the three private bedrooms are and the top floor has a bedroom attached to the dining room that is separated by a curtain. Everyone had a place to sleep but there was a bit of a lack of privacy with that top floor bedroom.
I agree with other reviewers when they say the kitchen was well stocked. We had everything we needed to make meals here.
I would also like to point out how clean and tidy the place was. The cleaning crew did a great job and everything was meticulous when we arrived. I will note that you may want to bring some additional toilet paper and paper towels as we found we ran out of what was provided somewhat quickly.
We would stay here again in a heartbeat!"
