About the property

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

The newly remodeled beach cottage is still “rustic”; it is basically the same as when my father built it with the addition of a few modern conviences. Its charm is the view from the front porch. If you are looking for luxury or spacious accommodations, it is not for you. It has a living area with cable TV. A dining table that seats four is located in the living area, with seating for two more at the kitchen counter. The kitchen is small but functional with dishwasher & microwave. The back bedroom has two twin beds. The bathroom separates the bedrooms, and like the kitchen it is small but functional. The front bedroom has a queen bed and TV. It has central air, with new ductwork in 2015. There is a washer and dryer in the garage. Parking for up to three cars is available at the side of the house, the garage is not available for parking..

Our stay at the beach

  • 5 of 5

James is a great host and will help any way possible. Our stay was a month and we found the cabin to be very comfortable with some of the best ocean views. The front porch faces the ocean and is a great place to hang out

after a day at the beach. This was our 2nd year here and will not be our last.

Quaint Beach Shanty by the Sea

  • 5 of 5

We loved this beach cottage. Perfect for two people and great view of the ocean, just steps from the beach! We had to leave early due to hurricane Matthew and Mr Miller was happy to return our unused portion of our stay. This is a very nice home for the money and you'll love it!

Owner's Response: Sorry Mathew cut you stay short. We had no damage other than the "no parking" sign that was down when you left. Hope to see you in the future.

This is our second visit to Fernandina Beach and we have stayed at Mr. Miller's cottage both times. The ocean view is awesome from the front porch! We appreciate the fact the he allows pets, so we are able to take our baby with us so she can enjoy the beach too! Love this place and we will be back next year!

Great location right on the beach! A strong plus is the porch with a great view of the water!

  • 5 of 5

Mr. Miller, The 1930's Beach Cottage is a great beach getaway place for my wife and Me. Cant say enough about the porch as when we not at the beach, we spent as much time as we could on the porch. With the kitchen fully furnished, it makes cooking a breeze, when we are not out enjoying the fine restaurants of Fernandina. When we first arrived, we were certainly glad to see you, and found the property very clean. You do a great job keeping this "vacation getaway" well maintained.

This was our 2ed year to stay in the 1930's cottage and we are definitely planning a 3rd visit in 2017.

Thanks again for making our stay a very good experience.

Yorkie Mom

  • 5 of 5

This was my second stay at the 1930s Beach cottage. I love staying there with my two little yorkies. It was a wonderful stay with everything you could ask of a beach rental. The porch was perfect for relaxing and allowing the dogs to run around. Owners are great!!

Perfect for our needs!

  • 5 of 5

The 1930's Beach Cottage in Fernandina Beach, while quaint and small, is full of charm! The immaculate cottage is well-maintained and has everything we need. Towels, linens, and even beach toys for the kiddos are all here. The kitchen is well-appointed if you are inclined to cook. The view is beautiful, and the porch is great for afternoon and evening ocean- and stargazing. Just a short walk across the dunes brings you to the beach, and the outdoor shower is convenient. We love watching dolphins frolic in the surf as we relax. While you are there, don't miss the historic Marina Restaurant, frequented by the locals and offering fresh, local seafood. Tasty's has great hamburgers, and be sure you try their milkshakes! Jim and his family are quite proud of the family history represented in this cottage, and love answering questions about the area. Without being intrusive, their friendly service makes us feel right at home. They try to ensure that your stay is pleasant and relaxed. We love coming to this pleasant cottage and hope to enjoy it for years to come!
