Best friendcation ever!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this home on Fernandina beach. Mike was great to work with and was such a joy to speak with each time I called. This was our first time to the island and we loved it! We spent our entire week on the beach, only leaving once to go out to eat (Sliders) and restock groceries. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook any variety of meal. The home was more than adequate for our two families. Our days were spent soaking up the sun while we watched the kids surf, skimmer board, boogie board and hunt for shark teeth. We even saw dolphins and a manatee! At night and during the rain there were puzzles and lots of monopoly being played. All of which were provided!! Which meant a lot less to pack for me:) We will defiantly come back again next year! Hopefully for two weeks:)

Excellent place to stay in Fernandina Beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at this house, just steps from the gorgeous beaches of Fernandina! The house itself is located on a peaceful residential road, so there wasn't any noise from traffic. Yet the beach itself is only about a 2 minute walk.

The house is older but extremely well-maintained and perfectly clean. The air conditioning worked beautifully, which is a must during Florida's long summer season! The shops and restaurants of downtown Fernandina are within a 10 minute drive, and also about a 10 minute drive to the famous Amelia Island Plantation.

I'd stay here again in a heartbeat! Plus the owners are extremely friendly and easy to reach any time you have a question. I'm glad I chose this place!

This was our families second time staying here. We absolutely fell in love with the area. There are so many things to do from surfing to walking along the water finding your perfect seashell. The beach is clean and not too crowded. The house is perfect and comes with everything we needed for ourselves, our children, and it's a very short walk to the beach. Mike and Lisa are very nice and accommodating. Downtown is beautiful and full of quaint shops and great restaurants. We love The Salty Pelican and also Pi pizza. I would recommend this house to anyone looking for a beautiful beach and a great vacation!!
