About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Ahoy Matey! This is not your usual 'rental'! This is a most charming 3 Bedroom/2 Bath vacation or long term occupancy with comfortable & spacious main floor living area, two bedrooms, one bath downstairs with gorgeous views of the ocean from the entire downstairs area. This home offers added views of the beach with windows and doors all across the beach side and large window on the north wall for added light and beach views. Tall ceilings and ceiling fans add to the character and 'coolness'. You're walking distance to restaurants, main beach, putt putt golf, basketball courts and public swimming pool. Watch the sun rise from 50 foot main, ocean deck or from the private master bedroom balcony also overlooking the Atlantic upstairs extending from the Master Suite w/private bath. You can see out, but no one can see in, so leave your doors open and feel the breeze at night. Free WI-FI internet. We also own two other beach homes on Amelia Island, see at VRBO listings # 93141 & 109114.

Sorry, no big parties or weddings accepted on this property... You're within 10 minutes of everything and won't need a map to find the Island treasures.

PLEASE NOTE LIMITED BASIC CABLE ONLY. Long term rentals will enjoy more stations.

About Lynn and Jerry Russell

This is her husbands review:

She is a Godly lady that doesn't' hide behind any kind of 'banner' trying to convince one of her values. What you see and get via email you can count on it 150% to be authentic, honest and heartfelt. She volunteers for non profit foundations. She is a nurturer and a college grad who had rather support others than use her degree in HR. Weezer and Lucky (pups) stay close along with her husband who is semi-retired.

If anything, Lynn 'over cares' about people and making sure everyone in her life, whether it's you, our guests or family and friends.

She and I ASSURE YOU of complete comfort and satisfaction.

Why Lynn and Jerry Russell chose Amelia Island

By visiting the island many years prior to settling down. We've visited almost all the beaches in Florida and love this quiet, quaint, God made special community we now call home. Amelia Island offers anything other beach towns offer except the distractions and crowds offered elsewhere, i.e., Daytona Beach.

ONCE YOU CONFIRM BOOKING WITH US WE WILL MAIL YOU THE ISLAND'S HOMETOWN MAGAZINE showing everything you want to know during your visit.

What makes this house unique

Our deck is as long as the house for greater views. We are "owner operated" and live on the island and no more than two miles from where you will be staying. We are "immediate" about returning phone calls and needs that may arise. We stay dedicated to making sure your valuable vacation and time are maximized

The safe roar of the ocean, getting up to watch the sunrise as well as the sunset. Walking your pups on the beach and seeing other families truly enjoy themselves while vacationing here.

Respite from a busy life: Beautiful Beach, Close to town

  • 5 of 5

My daughter, mother, and I wanted a girls weekend of relaxing on the beach and easy access to Fort Clinch State Park for hiking, and the town of Fernadina for restaurants and shopping. Lynn and Jerry notified me immediately of their home's availability. The home was clean, comfortable, and has a million dollar view of the Atlantic Ocean. Early mornings, we easily walked 10,000 steps in either direction. We had breakfast on the deck and spent warm afternoons reading on lounge chairs. For the most part, we had the beach to ourselves. Boogie boards were available to ride the ocean waves. Neighbors were quiet and respectful. I hope to return next year to this piece of heaven.

Beautiful property!

  • 4 of 5

House was great, short walk to the sand! House was very clean and plenty of towels. Air conditioning was great in the hot outside! We loved that it was pet friendly. Our Herschel had a great time. We loved the area and the beach was not crowded. Saw plenty of dolphins as well. We had a couple of questions, and owners responded immediately.

Great location...comfortable home.

  • 3 of 5

Dissatification with response time of owners. Upon sending my deposit check it was very difficult to get an email acknowledgement that the check

was received until I made several email and phone requests.

In addition...when final peyment was sent the same problem occured.

Downstairs shower drain was totally restricted upon arrival. After calling the owner on several consecutive days with no response my husband

snaked the drain so we could get rid of the stagnant & foul water odor that sat in the shower basin for 3 days. By the time we recieved a call from the owner it was too late.

Finally, we could not get the upstairs TV to work the entire week. Otherwise, the house was fine.

Owner's Response: It is not customary to inform tenants when we receive a check. We contact a tenant when we don't receive a check on the expected dates, however we surely will make this a priority. We have never, in 9 years had this complaint. We live on the island, no more than 3 miles from all of our properties and pride ourselves on immediate response. When we got the call regarding the drainage we told the tenant we would send one of our two 'on call' plumbing companies over. She then told us her husband had solved the problem and not to bother. We carry our cell phones with us (even to the bathroom) and honestly do not recall getting multiple calls. We didn't know about the TV upstairs until our next guest came in. They told us it didn't work, therefore we immediately went to Comcast, had a refresher signal sent and purchased another connector cord which solved the problem. We ask everyone to PLEASE let us know if anything needs to be addressed while there rather than complain after they leave. Our rentals are our livelihood and we will never take our guests and their needs for granted. I spoke with Ms. Fuchs a couple times prior to their arrival, however receiving a check was never asked about. My apologies for any misunderstandings. If anyone wants to speak with us about this review we would honor the opportunity. Respectfully, Jerry & Lynn.

Awesome Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Once again we were not disappointed in this lovely beach house. House is really spacious and well equipped. If you look at the pictures on the site, that is just how it looks when you get here. The best part to me is the huge deck facing the ocean. Morning coffee, lunch and star gazing...all done on this lovely deck. A special thank you to Jerry and Lynn for be such gracious owners. Fantastic , godly folks. If you need anything they are always available. Loved our stay.

Very nice house

  • 4 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay in your house. There was plenty of room and the house is very comfortable. We ate most of our meals on the porch. The porch is awesome and overlooks the beach. The photos provided are accurate . I would recommend this house to friends and we plan to return in the future.

Excellent views, spacious accommodations, beautiful beach

  • 4 of 5

Our family of four had a terrific time at this beach house. The views, accommodations, and weather was fantastic. The back deck was great for sun rises and family meals. The beach is not over populated and the waves added lots of excitement for our 3 year old daughter and 7 year old son. We even witnessed a sea turtle "eruption" and hundreds of sea turtles were scurrying to the ocean. That was a once in a lifetime experience and we would have never experienced it if it were not for our vacation Beach rental home. I highly recommend. Only upgrade needed is an outdoor grill and beach chairs for visitors use. We traveled from Dallas, Texas so those items would have helped.
