Rented together, ten guests can be accommodated. Discounted rates are available for booking both units. Please e-mail or call if interested in both units.

Amelia Island is home to the quaint and charming Historic Fernandina village, a step back in time to the Victorian Age, located only five miles from the beach house. Nearby activities include unique downtown shopping in the Historic District, a multitude and variety of restaurants, wildlife viewing, hiking, biking, golf, tennis, miniature golf, fishing, river sailing on a three masted schooner, horseback riding on the beach, cinemas, museums, sailing, shelling, and two local theatre groups. If you prefer day trips, Cumberland Island National Park is available by ferry to hike and view the wild horses and other wildlife or to visit Greyfield Inn for a romantic evening at the Carnegie Mansion. You may also choose a day trip south to the oldest city in the nation, St. Augustine, Florida or north to historic Savannah, Georgia.

About Brenda Platt

Jim and Brenda Platt - We are retired from long careers in telecommunications and have traveled extensively in the US and abroad. We've been many beautiful places but none are as beautiful as Amelia Island. The island still has the small town feel and people are friendly. Nature thrives on Amelia!

Brenda Platt purchased this house in 1989

Why Brenda Platt chose Florida North East

Amelia Island is a unspoiled barrier island with pristine beaches, thrilling wildlife and the most charming Victorian village in the South.

What makes this house unique

Quiet evenings with silver moonlit seas. Wonderful sunrises. Beach that is never crowded. Flocks of pelicans, waterbirds and dolphins. Our property is located in a residential area away from the commercial feel of condos and hotels.

Another wonderful stay!

  • 4 of 5

We're never disappointed! After several visits we know what to expect and our 4-legged child, Carly knows immediately where she is upon arrival. The new beach umbrellas and beach chairs were enjoyed. Whether you're a beach bum, need rest and relaxation, or want to get out and see the sights, THIS is the place. Can't wait to plan another week in paradise!! Thanks!

Fantastic Vacation Property

  • 5 of 5

I just vacationed at this property and could not be happier with my stay. The unit is very clean and really well-appointed -- you can pretty much forget everything but yourself and your clothes and make do. The view from the unit is fantastic, and there is ample outdoor seating to enjoy the sunrise while drinking coffee or watching the stars come out at night sipping a glass of wine. You pretty much feel like you have your own private beach here. I'm already planning on booking here next year.

Will be back next year!

  • 5 of 5

We've been coming to this awesome place for a few years now, and we always feel like we are coming home. The apartment is well appointed, and the owners make sure we have what we need to enjoy our stay. Being able to walk out the door and be at the beach is the best part.

Love it!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the other unit last year and loved it. Loved this side too! I'm so glad we were able to stay one more time before the price hike. I'm afraid we've been priced out of paradise :(

Thanks for the memories, Brenda & Jim!!

Wonderful place right on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed for a long weekend at Brenda's place. The location is fantastic. It was great to walk right to the beach without having to pack up the car or cross the street. The house is well stocked with plenty of towels, beach chairs, and toys. The kitchen has plenty of whatever you may need for cooking and eating. Brenda is a wonderful host. Her communication was great. The house was very clean and ready to go when we arrived. We would definitely stay there again!
