The Mermaid Den is a second story condo unit in Fernandina Beach which can accommodate six guests. It has three bedrooms (king, queen, & bunk), two bathrooms, den/dining combo, fully equipped kitchen, washer & dryer and a large balcony. It's clean, comfortable, cheerful, and charming. Its beachy decor features original art. It has everything you need to have a wonderful vacation except a personal staff of employees. Amenities include Wifi, a TV in the den and master bedroom (basic cable only), 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.

Beautiful pool. And the trees! The giant, beautiful, old, twisted trees mixed with the sound of the waves and the smell of the sea are the best combination possible!

Beach Proximity is Great
Condo complex is a short walk away from the beach which made it very convenient to go enjoy the sunrise & take lots of walks. It's also only a short drive to the historic area & some nice parks & the fort. As other reviewers have said, the condo itself is showing signs of age but was clean & had what we needed. The owner was very responsive & apologetic to a minor issue we had and the people we encountered around the complex were friendly.
Great stay in Amelia for Thanksgiving week.
Location was perfect! Easy-to-follow instructions on website and in condo for handling whatever we needed. Owner was responsive when we reached out for assistance with a minor issue. Some items beginning to show age, but bedsheets were super comfy and kitchen was stocked with all the necessities. Great bargain!
Great place by the beach!
Great condo close to the beach. Everything we could have asked. Wish we could have stayed longer.
clean, comfortable, close to everything, had all your needs met, owner was great to work with. this condo was just amazing
Great short stay, good location
We enjoyed our stay at Mermaids Den. Although the condos are older the unit has been updated in some areas. There is some wear and tear but nothing bad that would keep me from staying again. The location was great and it was a short walk to the beach. We would definitely rent this unit again as it was spacious for our family, clean and a good location.
Great stay! Short walk to the beach , nice clean place !
Great experience . First time in Amelia island and loved it! No issues with the room at all!
