  • Little bit of heaven away from home!

    "It's overwhelming. You walk in the front door and behind you is water and islands. In front of you through kitchen and living room is a huge lanai showing the ocean and waves. Each bedroom overlooks water. The decor makes you feel like your on vacation with FL shells and boats everywhere. The thoughtful tools, supplies and towels, the firm king bed, two HD TV's, practically every time I looked for something I found it neatly stowed. The location was our favorite feature. No! The location between beauty of nature and fabulous restaurants was our favorite feature. The owners kept a journal of everyone's favorites and they became ours too for the next time!"

  • Better than the pictures

    "This was a Labor Day weekend at the beach for my family of 5 and 2 dogs. First if all, you will not meet a nicer couple than Michael and Anne to do business with, a member of their management staff or themselves checked with us almost daily to make sure everything was fine. The home itself is a very open floor plan and if you run out of dishes, pots or pans you must be having a party for 20 people (There is even a Panini press). The pantry was well stocked and the kitchen very user friendly. It was to warm to use the fireplace but the home is very well maintained and virtually spotless upon arrival. It is a quick 5 minute walk to the private beach and there are coolers, chairs, beach towels, boogie boards and a beach cart to put it all in, so it easy to tote all of your accessories for the short walk. Plenty of restaurants are within a mile of the house and a Publix grocery store located near the islands entrance about 3 miles away. We never left the house except to go to the beach or grocery store taking full advantage of the Weber grill in the enclosed courtyard. All the conveniences of our home, only we were on vacation. We will certainly be back for future stays."

  • A Dream!

    "A wonderful hidden gem minutes from everything! No car needed as there are two trolley stops two minutes walk away. Rippleis believe it or not is one of them. The castle is also a block away and the gates to the old city are right across the street from the castle. The cottage is quaint, clean, sunny and comfortable. The grounds that the cottage is on are beautiful and sends you back in time 200 years with the quaint brick pathways and the towering Victorian in the background. The large gardenis bushes made it smell heavenly. The pool was very clean and surrounded by stone statutes and tropical plants. We could not get our son out of it to do much sight seeing. It was a very magical place and very hard to leave. The surrounding old Victorian homes were amazing and the breeze blowing off the bay was delightful. The owners were so nice and made us feel right at home. Would like d to have stayed longer. Thank you for sharing your slice of heaven with us!"

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. Jet skis, windsurfing and bird-watching are popular pursuits. Visitors can also take a boat trip along the quieter Intracoastal Waterway. 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

Many people drive to Northeast Florida. Those choosing to fly will find Jacksonville International Airport the nearest major airport to this area. 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.

Weather in Northeast Florida

The northeast coast of Florida enjoys some of the best weather all year with sea breezes making the 90-degree Fahrenheit (32 C) summer highs more bearable. Winter daytime highs are around 67 degrees Fahrenheit (20 C) and the rainiest months are from June to September when short afternoon showers are likely.
