Wonderful two month stay

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time visiting Amelia Island in February and March of 2016. It was our third winter visit to the island but our first stay with Kevin and Michelle. We stayed five weeks at the downstairs apartment and three upstairs. We liked them both. We have stayed at nice properties before but these units were our most comfortable yet. When they say it is well equipped they mean it. We had everything we could possibly need and more. Based on previous stays in other rentals I had brought a good skillet and basic kitchen tools and linens with me. No need here, they stayed packed the whole time. Michelle and Kevin are gracious hosts, never bothering us but there if we needed them When asked they would always provide helpful recommendations whether to a restaurant, store or dog groomer. We also appreciated that our dog was welcome Access to the beach is close and convenient and we watched many beautiful sunrises The beach was never crowded, in fact a few times we had it to ourselves! We highly recommend Fernandina Beach and particularly recommend this property.

Great Place, Great Hosts

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed with Kevin and Michelle several times in the past 3 years in both upstairs and downstairs units. I have family on Amelia Island and still prefer to rent this place. It's more like staying as a guest in a friends house as Michelle is very engaging and will go out of her way to make sure you're comfortable. We hold LARGE family gatherings as my whole group will show up (15+ people and lots of kids) and no issues at all. They even let my my in-laws park their RV in teh driveway! Been visiting Amelia for over 20 years and this is just a great place with a great location. Direct beach access, close to Sliders, The Surf and Sadler Road shopping. We've already booked both units for our July vacation this year (2013) and are bringing friends to introduce them to the experience. That's the key to this place - it's all about the full Amelia Island beach experience.

Could not ask for more!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, child and I have stayed in the downstairs unit twice now, once in 2009 and once in 2012. We could not ask for more friendly and helpful hosts. The location is key and directly across to the beach. The beach is never packed and is truly enjoyable. The unit has everything you need from washer and dryer to hot tub. We hope to stay there again this summer!

Beyond the Call of Duty

  • 5 of 5

My family and I recently rented the 3 bedroom unit. The accomodations were great and everything was clean and orderly upon our arrival. Michelle even called me on my cell to tell me it was ready. The downstairs unit has an awesome front porch were we spent a good bit of our time. The beach is directly across the street with easy access. We were there for my daughter's wedding on the island. Upon my early departure I left my daughter's bouquet in a vase on the kitchen table. The decorations were so nice in the unit that in my haste to take a relative to the airport it looked like part of the decor. While returning to Tallahassee I realized my stupidness. I quickly emailed Michelle on my phone and told her what I had done and asked if she would be so kind to dry them out for me. I will be returning to the island in August. She returned my email in a matter of minutes and asked me how to do it. She even offered to send pictures periodically of the bouquet!! Not just anyone would be nice enough to do this. I would recommend this place highly.

Cozy Cottage for Two - Just a Block From the Beach

  • 5 of 5

We booked on rather short notice and appreciated Michelle's quick, friendly responses.

This quaint "old Florida" cottage is just a block from the beach. Downstairs is a nicely updated kitchen and small living room. Upstairs is a roomy bedroom, (with a comfy king bed), a small bathroom and a big closet. Two TVs, a/c, and wi-fi complete the package.

Beach chairs are provided and there are miles of wonderful, uncrowded beach just a short walk away. Food on the island is great. We especially liked Mary Jean's, Pablo's, Bright Mornings, Moon River Pizza and Karibo.

The is not "The Ritz", but if you are looking for a clean, quiet, homey hideaway, you'll love it. And, it's a great value at less than the price of a common hotel room.
