About the Property

3BR/2BA affordable condo, sleeps six, pool, close to beach & downtown

The Mermaid Den is a second story condo unit in Fernandina Beach which can accommodate six guests. It has three bedrooms (1 king bed, 1 queen, 1 bunk), two bathrooms, den and dining combo area, fully equipped kitchen, washer & dryer and a large balcony. This very comfortable property is colorful, cheerful, and charming featuring original art, cleanliness and tidiness. It has a TV in each bedroom, a small movie library, a supply of board games, and a rotating paperback library. It is surrounded by lush green grass and shaded by large, twisting oak trees dripping in Spanish Moss. It is tucked into private and quiet surroundings, yet close to everything you want to do. There's little that's more than a walk or bike ride away. You can enjoy the pool or tennis courts at your leisure. There is also greenspace with grills as well as a shaded playground for the tikes. The unit has an assigned parking space for one car, but there are visitor parking spaces as well. Further, this desirable neighborhood is the only one in its area which offers short term condo rentals. Otherwise, the options are hotels or condos requiring a long walk/short drive to the beach.

Although The Mermaid Den is not located beachfront, just make a 200 yard walk across the road and your toes will be in the sand. Locals and visitors alike take excellent care of the beaches to preserve them and protect their indigenous natural wild and plant life.

Amelia Island features a wide array of tourist attractions such as uncrowded beaches, historic buildings, fine restaurants, boutiques, galleries, and many diverse recreational activities such as top rated golf courses, tennis, beachcombing, sailing, jet skiing, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, miniature golf, volleyball, horseback riding, surfing, biking, and more. History buffs will appreciate Fort Clinch and downtown, or perhaps choose a day trip to Cumberland Island or St. Augustine.

The streets of downtown Fernandina are filled with art, crafts, antiques, live music, children's activities and lots of delicious local seafood. It is also home to the Pirate Society. A 50 block area of Downtown Fernandina Beach is listed on the National Register of Historic Places because of its amazing preservation of late Victorian architecture with its many mansions and cottages.

Come and enjoy our little corner of paradise on Amelia Island, easily reached by car or plane. Amelia Island airstrip or the Jacksonville airport is just minutes away. Interstate 95 is only 15 minutes away. Spectacular sunrises, beautiful beaches, and plenty to do are why everyone returns to this pristine location.
