About Marlee Krohn

I grew up in Atlanta and have been visiting the island all my life! It is still as pristine as it was all those years ago! The memories are all wonderful and a lot of the island and the establishments are still here!!! My whole family visits again and again! We all can't get enough of our home and the island!!!

Marlee Krohn purchased this cottage in 1998

Why Marlee Krohn chose Florida North East

It spoke to us as soon as we walked in! It needed a lot of TLC but there is something wonderful and calming about this lovely home! Not to mention, that is SO VERY CLOSE to the ocean!!! Our home is 'one of a kind' and never disappoints!

What makes this cottage unique

The simplicity and the views and the possibilities made us fall in love with our home! We made all those dreams come true when we renovated our home roof to sand! We kept the integrity of our home; keeping the wood ceiling, walls and floors and bringing them back to their original beauty and added the modern conveniences. The views are magnificent everywhere in our home! The outside decks are breath taking! It's an incredible home and we love sharing it!!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

"In our twelve years of visiting Amelia Island this is the most tastefully decorated, cleanest, and most comfortable beach home we've rented. The owners have extended great hospitality to us and made sure that every detail of our stay was covered, from all the home supplies to arrival gifts such as a wonderful breakfast basket. We would love to rent this home year after year."

Breathtaking home! Beachfront delight. Perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in August 2016 with our two children (5 years old and 10 months old) for our first visit to Ameila island. The house is breathtaking. Directly on the beach, with windows all around and a master bedroom which seems to float over the sand dunes.

Perfect location to explore Fort Clinch (less than 1 mile jog to park entrance), downtown Fernandina Beach, or just step outside and enjoy the ocean.

The owner has truly thought of everything. Full kitchen with everything organized, high quality towels and sheets, beach equipment, a nice outdoor shower, and of course the interior design (you can see on the listing) is amazing.

Owner was available instantly by phone to handle check in, answer questions about the area, and even helped coordinate delivery of some baby supplies (crib, beach stroller) before our arrival.

Highly recommend this unique property. Not to be missed!

PS: If traveling with kids, we used baby's away and rented a full size crib, beach stroller and high chair. Delivered to the house in good condition and saved us having to travel with these items.

On the beach excellence

  • 5 of 5

The owners of this amazing property go out of their way to make the experience enjoyable. The little details make the stay extra special and allow one to just relax and enjoy.

Being on the beach was the best thing for our group. No lugging all the beach toys and coolers and wagons of stuff, no worrying about packing meals for a day on the beach--just step back inside.

Downtown is fun to walk around, sunsets over the river are breathtaking, and everyone is super friendly and laid back.

A great vacation.

A hidden gem!

  • 5 of 5

We were thrilled with our accommodations at this cottage! The owner has made it SO comfortable and welcoming, more like a boutique hotel really. The decor is relaxing and "beachy" (our descriptive word for it), a large, well stocked bathroom with plenty of towels and essentials, beach towels, fresh bed linens in the well decorated, cozy bedrooms, and a well appointed kitchen! It was great to have coffee each morning from the deck right on the beach, dolphin watching, shell hunting. Very private. Our girls group spent much of our time, when we weren't exploring the gorgeous beach and lovely town of Fernandina Beach, reading, talking, and playing games on the sun porch filled with light from the wall of windows directly facing the beach and ocean. The weather although very sunny, was windy and chilly during some of our stay. The one and ONLY suggestion we had: the sun porch would benefit from a window upgrade so the view is clear. The interior panes in the current windows are quite foggy. Nevertheless, it was cozy and inviting! This cottage is in a pristine area of Fernandina Beach where life is quiet, making it a great getaway for a family, friends, girls getaway, and couples. Thank you Marlee! We enjoyed every moment, and WILL be back!
