Overview

About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

This charming cottage has an incredible view with a large deck sitting on the dunes, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. No long walkway to the beach...just step into the sand from the deck. Soak in the beauty of God's creation as you breath in the sights and sounds of the waves.

Let the beautiful sunrise envelope you as you sip your morning coffee. In the evenings, after a stroll along the beach, spread a blanket and watch the stars as the waves splash beside you. It is rejuvenating for your body and soul!

This is a special retreat. We call it our Island Oasis. We have enjoyed many vacations here and hope that you will find it as inviting as we have.

We have found that no matter where we travel, we long for our island oasis. For all the years we have spent here, we continue to discover new and exciting things to do.

From horse drawn carriage rides along the cobblestone streets of downtown Fernandina to segway excursions through the national parks to daytrips to Jacksonville's Zoo or Cumberland Island, there are many activities to keep you busy. We just seem to find that we prefer to head back to the Little Cottage in the Dunes.

Why Amy Davis chose Amelia Island

We have vacationed on Amelia Island since I was a child. After I had children, we continued to visit Amelia Island. At some point we decided to visit other beaches. My children begged to go back to Amelia Island! We have always enjoyed searching for sharks' teeth, collecting seashells, biking downtown for ice-cream, feeding the birds.....Amelia Island is the place we long to be!

What makes this cottage unique

We fell in love with this property because of this little cottage. When I saw the unbelievable view of the ocean from inside the cottage, I started to cry. (And my husband knew it was a 'done deal'!) Our cottage has so much charm and character! It was built years ago, before the building setbacks were put in place. The location of our cottage is grandfathered in and it is right on the sand! You just can't get any closer to the water! I think Amelia Island is special because it is not too commercialized. When you drive onto the island, you immediately feel the slower pace, the relaxed feel of the island! The main beach street has some new construction, but it also has a nice mix of old beach cottages that have been in families for years! It really adds a lot of character to the island. If you visit the downtown, you do feel as though you have stepped back in time. Families are strolling along the sidewalks and peeking into charming shops, locally owned bookstores, and coffee shops. You can't leave downtown without a taste of ice-cream or homemade fudge from the Fantastic Fudge Shop!

The Enchanted Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This dream cottage on the beach exceeded our expectations. Every detail was perfect from furnishings to cleanliness. The decor is beautiful but totally comfy. The view is breathtaking. There is so much to see and do on the island. We especially loved the downtown area for shopping, entertainment and fabulous seafood. The beach was clean and inviting for long daily walks. You will never rent from anyone as sweet and sincere as Amy Davis. She truly wants you to enjoy your stay and answers all your questions promptly and with her great patience. We cannot wait to return next year.

The most perfectly old FLA experience ever!

  • 5 of 5

The refurbished retro cottage is just as proffered: clean, bright, and beautifully finished. The furnishings have changed to a more subdued color palette but staying here is a true lil' beach house vacation! We were 4 very good women friends and found, with a little consideration, sharing a single bathroom was no problem. I absolutely loved using the outdoor shower with H&C water! No shabbiness here: nice linens, newish aplliances, launderable sofa covers, and nicely painted indoor & outdoor walls. Amy is a wonderful host and will assure that your experience is nothing short of stellar!

It was delightful

  • 5 of 5

Every morning I watched the sunrise from the deck, breathtaking. The weather was perfect. The cottage was a dollhouse, with everything anyone would need . It was just like the picture here. It was the most relaxing week we have spent on vacation, truly just what we were looking for.
