  • Great Location

    "Property was a great value and the location can not be beat. Access to beach right across the street and an easy walk to downtown. Would highly recommend. Outside could use some updating but inside was in great shape."

  • Fantastic 4th of July

    "This was our second trip to the Sunset River Cottage on the St. Johns. We took our boat once again, and had a wonderful trip. The pictures are accurate, it is very clean and well cared for. We spent the 4th of July on the river watching fireworks from all directions...had to be the best view I have EVER had in my life. Once again, the owner was very helpful, the caretakers were wonderful, and we were ever so pleasantly surprised to see an addition of a fish cleaning station. This is an awesome retreat, and I highly recommend it if you are a couple wanting a relaxing, peaceful getaway, or wanting to do some fishing. If I didn't mention it before, be sure to stop prior to heading to the cottage if you plan to buy groceries because the only local places are a Dollar General and Kangaroo gas station. If you want to eat out, Shrimp 'R Us & More and River Pub Grill are both wonderful places to visit."

  • Great Beach front resort

    "Great views and beach front resort.my only caution would be aware of 4 levels of stairs and the condo would be difficult for wheel chair access. The unit was nicely furnished and equipped with every thing a person would need for a beach rental. The Rental agent Ryan at Destination Amelia was easy to deal with and the entire transaction can be completed on line. Amelia Island is a lovely place to visit."

  • Wonderful Stay in St. Augustine!

    "We really enjoyed our tip to St. Augustine. This condo was very nice and in a great location. Very clean and spacious and only steps to the beach and pool. It was very convenient to be able to park right in front of the sitting area outside and also to be on the ground floor. This is a quiet resort and it only takes about 2 minutes to get to the grocery store. The owners are super nice and very easy to communicate with. It was all around a great experience renting from these nice folks. We will definitely be back!"

Florida North East Travel Tips

Northeast Florida Vacation Rentals for Your Next Trip

Northeast Florida has some of the oldest settlements in the United States. Discovered by Juan Ponce de Leon in 1513, both the Spanish and French established settlements in northeast Florida. With the advent of the Florida East Coast Railroad by William Henry Flagler in the late 19th century, the advantages of the area as a winter resort became more apparent. Nicknamed the “Sunshine State,” it is a popular vacation destination for families, couples, snowbirds escaping the northern states for the winter, and spring breaker travelers. Nowadays, St. Augustine, Amelia Island, Jacksonville and Daytona Beach are some of the most popular vacation destinations in the U.S.

Choose Your own Northeast Florida Vacation Rentals

The coastline of northeast Florida is lined with oceanfront condos and apartments offering fantastic vacation rentals right on the beach. Condos often have their own private balcony, a sun terrace and shared swimming pool overlooking the beach. The convenience of having these amenities and sun loungers just steps from your lodging makes good sense. Within your own vacation rental unit, the well-equipped kitchen can be stocked with cold drinks and snacks, helping to save you money during the vacation. Older children can come and go to the beach and pool as they please and everyone has their own bedroom space. A vacation rental usually works out to be much cheaper than a hotel, especially for a family. Couples can opt for a smaller unit or may share the space (and cost!) with friends. Those requiring a special diet will find the convenience of a vacation rental home a great advantage. Best of all, condo rentals are comfortably furnished to a high standard with every convenience in the kitchen from a washer/dryer unit to a dishwasher.

Things to do Near Northeast Florida Condos

Northeast Florida has plenty of things to see and do including the usual beach pursuits of surfing, metal detecting, sunbathing and fishing.

The area has plenty of museums, including the Wax Museum and Ripley’s Believe It or Not Museum in St. Augustine, lighthouses, national parks, golf courses and excellent shopping malls. Cycling and walking along the firm sands and boardwalks are popular ways to see the area. Art-lovers will enjoy a visit to the Cummer Museum of Art which has a fine collection of Japanese prints and 19th-century artwork in this beautiful mansion. There are also several botanical gardens in the area.

Getting to Northeast Florida Resorts

It is just 16 miles from Amelia City lodging, 22 miles from the Jacksonville beach rentals and within easy driving distance of St. Augustine and Daytona Beach.

Neighborhoods to Visit From Northeast Florida Resorts

Amelia Island has some of the best beaches and sand dunes in Florida. It has the Fort Clinch State Park with a historic Civil War fort and plenty of shops and restaurants. Jacksonville has miles of beautiful sandy beaches along the barrier island and Atlantic Beach is a favorite with surfers. A little further down the coast from Jacksonville is St. Augustine, the nation’s oldest city, founded in 1565. It has beautiful Spanish-style architecture and the oldest wooden school house in the U.S., in a replica village of the original settlement. Daytona Beach is home to Speedway Racing since cars first raced along the firm sands in 1902. Cape Canaveral is home to the Kennedy Space Center and offers a great day out. If you are really lucky, there may be a space shuttle launch during your stay.
