About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5)

The cottage is located right on the ocean. You will have direct access to the beach. Sitting on the deck, watching the shrimp boats in the evening and the sunrise in the morning while you enjoy breakfast in the screened-in porch on the deck; it doesn't get any better than this. The house is within walking distance of the Main Beach, putt putt golf, basketball courts, a skateboard park, a very nice public swimming pool with an entertaining kiddie pool and Fort Clinch State Park. There is a Kwik Mart/gas station down the road for those last minute supplies. Across the road is a surf shop for those of you who want to try surfing. There is a restaurant within walking distance.

About Rich Murren

My time is spent as a home remodeling contractor. And I am busy all the time with that job. My spare time is spent at the island. We love to come here with our new grandchildren, who are just discovering playing in the sand.

Rich Murren purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Rich Murren chose Amelia Island

We came to Amelia Island for a realtor friend that needed help on their condo. We loved it here and realized that Amelia Island is truly 'Florida's Best Kept Secret'. There are no crowds and it is a short distance from Jacksonville Airport and the culture that Jacksonville offers if that is your choice. We enjoy long walks on the beach and going for a swim if we feel like it.

What makes this cottage unique

Watching the sun rise from the deck, watching the dolphins jump and dance, seeing the shrimp boats bring in their catch, pelicans flying in formation over the deck, the unique character of downtown Fernandina Beach, wonderful restaurants all with their own charm, friendly people everyplace you go, walking on the beach and finding cool shells. These are but a few of the benefits to staying on the beach.

Beachy Keen is a great property in a wonderful location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Beachy Keen. Restaurants and grocery stores are close for food and other supplies. The location is prime, right on the beach and the deck facing the sunrise each morning is a wonderful benefit. Thanks for making this spot available!

Everything you need and an amazing view

  • 4 of 5

We stayed over Labor Day and had a great time. The unit is small but for our little family, it was perfect, it had everything we could need and you cannot beat the location and view! Even during thunderstorms, we had such a great view of the ocean that we didn't mind being inside!

We enjoyed our stay very much. Clean, cozy cottage with everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Sunrise view from the deck was great as was enjoying the starry sky listening to the ocean.

Wonderful family vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

Beechy Keen is the perfect place for a family! It is a quaint, quiet, cottage. It was very clean and we had everything we needed available to us at the house. Rich was wonderful! When I needed something he responded very quickly. It is located on the quieter side of the island, the beach was not crowed at all. It is also not far from many activities. I HIGHLY recommend this beautiful setting!

My 4th time at Beachy Keen

  • 5 of 5

This little cottage is perfect for our family of 4. We love being able to get up and head right out onto the beach. The deck is perfect for sitting and watching the stars and listening to the waves. The kitchen is stocked with everything we need. We love it! Looking forward to getting back again!
