About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-7)

Ten Reasons Why You Would Choose Our House:

1. Modern High-ceiling house, not the typical old out-dated rental house with new siding.

2. Popular area of the beach. Easy walk to Dairy Queen, Shoney's, Sliders, Cedar River Seafood and beach stores.

3. Owner-occupied part of the year and we keep our house current.

4. Garage to protect your cars from the salt environment. Important!

5. Beach chairs, floats and barbeque provided.

6. New washer, dryer, refrigerator and dishwasher. New granite countertops in kitchen and 10 ft breakfast bar; new queen memory foam mattress in 2nd bedroom(hypoallergenic) and new AC.

7. Cable TV, DVD, CD Player and wifi included.

8. Private walkway to beach.

9. Wide beach, even at high tide.

10.Here are some of the wonderful comments from very happy renters at our house - many of them are repeat renters:

"your home was very comfortable and the location is great."

"You have a great house. Nicely decorated. Simple and clean."

"The home was wonderful."

"It was great having the beach in the back yard."

"The house was cozy, bright and just right for our needs."

"The house is kept in good working order."

"Excellent furnishings and layout of the home."

"Felt like home the minute we set foot through the door."

"What an amazing island and beach home this is."

"The house was a perfect fit for two couples. Very convenient."

"We had a great time in your gorgeous beach house."

This is a no-pet house. We like pets, but not at the beach. Until dogs get used to the sand, they are confused and prefer to go on the carpet. We prefer that your children be able to safely play and crawl on the carpets.

So why look anywhere else? This is the perfect family house for a comfortable, relaxing vacation. The property managers live just 5 minutes' away and are always available should there be any problem - no matter how small.

Amelia Island is a wonderful destination, whether you are looking for a family vacation or a romantic long weekend. Miles of unspoiled beaches to walk on, the lovely historic downtown area of Fernandina Beach with it's unique stores and yummy restaurants. There is definitely something for everyone, and once you stay here one time, you will always return.

Our stay was excellent. The house is actually nicer than the pictures. The house is definitely bright and airy. Nice beach chairs were provided to take to the beach. The deck has very comfortable furniture. Would definitely recommend this to any of my friends

wish we had stayed longer

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at this great oceanfront beach home for two weeks in February. The house had everything that you would want for a stay at this perfect, laid back resort on the northern Florida coast. Even though we went out to eat every night, we did have lunch at the house and the kitchen was well supplied with your every need. The fact that there were three bedrooms allowed us to spread out even though there were just two of us. The

private walkway to the beach was just perfect for the morning walks on the beach and the view from the deck was fantastic. We wish we had made arrangements to stay longer and we hope to do that in the future. We want to thank the owners for offering their beautiful home to us and we hope to return soon.

Well kept and charming

  • 5 of 5

As soon as we arrived we were delighted that the living spaces and furnishing were even better than the pictures showed. The beachfront is beautiful with small dunes bearing native sea oats, opening to a wide beach accessible by the convenient boardwalk. The property was well maintained with everything in good working order and very clean. The property had many conveniences such as a spacious usable garage, small pantry/storage alcove with washer and dryer, outdoor shower/garden hose at the foot of boardwalk to beach, grill (which we enjoyed using) and ample kitchen utensils (including a whisk we used to make Hollandaise sauce!). This worked out great for my kids with ample room for their friends to come visit. I look forward to booking again next year.

Needs work

  • 3 of 5

We found this house to be disappointing, especially given the rental fee. To put it simply, the property gave the impression of being maintained only just enough to keep it on the market. But then again it is right on the beach.

The exterior deck is showing signs of neglect, as is the walkway to the beach and, indeed, the steps up to the main house. For example, the deck railings are severely twisted and badly weathered. The same can be said of the walkway to the beach and the steps to the main living area. These areas, the deck, the walkway, and the main steps are definitely a ready-made recipe for splinters.

One area that the owners should consider changing is a way to get to the beach walkway from the deck. At present, you have to leave the main house (via the stairs) to return to the ground level then circle the house to get to the walkway. This is a challenge for anyone with mobility issues.

On the plus side, the property is clean, pleasant and well-supplied.

Owner's Response: Ralph WE are so sorry that the exterior of the house did not meet your expectations. The salt air and wet environment of the beach are not kind to exposed wooden structures. The deck surface was replaced, with stainless steel screws less than two years ago. The rails, although twisted in some cases, the steps and walkway are structurally sound. It is not clear that Trex or a similar product can withstand the environment any better. There is a sand walkway around the neighbor’s house, open to the public, if that is preferable. We are glad that you enjoyed the interior of the house - hopefully the most important area and hope that you return to the island again. Rhona/Premier Beach Rentals

Good family vacation home.

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed our week here in July. It is a lovely home and in a good location. The home had everything we needed and I loved the open layout. We have 3 year old twins, and a 2 year old and the house was very toddler friendly. Although we did not use it except for storage, the garage was a nice bonus. The homeowners have several beach items such as chairs and toys that are located in the garage. The wi-fi was good and fast enough to watch Netflix which is always nice to have. The master bed slept nice and the in-laws didn't complain about the other queen bedroom. The only complaint my wife and mother-in-law had was a lack of place to store food. Most of the cabinets contained dishes or other kitchen needs, so we had to rearrange things to make more room to store food.

The deck offers a great view of the ocean and is a nice place to relax in the mornings and evenings. The deck floor has recently been replaced. I noticed in the guestbook it said that they may add a staircase off of the deck leading to the beach walkway. That would be a great addition if it happens. The walkway to the beach has a little age, but not dangerous by any means. It doesn't have a lot of stairs, which is nice when having to lug a lot of beach equipment.

Rhona, the property manager, was a pleasure to work with throughout the process and was always fast in her replies. We had an issue with the dishwasher not working right because of a mistake in the hookup of the new garbage disposal and her team was able to fix it in a timely manner.

The house had everything we needed. We chose to bring our own linens. I brought my tea pot to make tea, but it even had one of those. The only bedroom that has a tv is the master, so that may be in an issue for some people.

Overall I would highly recommend this property and hopefully will be able to rent the house again next year!

Perfect for family get together

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our sister reunion. It was very clean and well-maintained. Lots of chairs and beach items in the garage. The kitchen was outfitted very well. Gorgeous view from the deck which had plenty of comfortable seating. Beach was beautiful, very nice not to have cars allowed on this section of the beach in front of the house. Would recommend for week getaway, near to everything.
