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 Florida North East

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.

Great time!

  • 5 of 5

This was my third time at the cottage so clearly it's a spot we enjoy! We love the view and the kids love being able to sit on the porch and go through their treasures they found on the beach. The size is perfect for us and we don't feel cramped like we would have in a hotel room. I loved being able to just get up and head out to the beach!. The porch is great to sit out and listen to the ocean waves roll in.

This was the first time we didn't eat out as much and had no issue with anything in the kitchen. Everything we needed was there!

Thanks again for sharing your little piece of the beach with us! We will be back again!

Owner's Response: You now qualify for coming back to "your" beach house in the future. We love that we can share this piece of heaven with other families that love it as much as we do. One of my favorite things is seeing the shell collections on the deck railing that people have left for others to enjoy.

Perfect vacation home for family of 3

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect home for our family of three. The house was spotless when we arrived and fully stocked with everything we could want or need. Rich and Mary were so nice in all our correspondences and even added linens at the last minute when we realized our bed sizes at home didn't match the bed sizes there. Last but certainly not least, the view off the deck is AMAZING!!! Our area of the beach wasn't overcrowded, and we were in walking distance of a putt putt course and playground, which our daughter loved. In short, it was perfect!!!

Owner's Response: We are glad you got to use the playground & Putt Putt course down the street. They also have the best burgers & onion rings on the island. We hope that your daughter had the best birthday ever! We hope to see you back for next years birthday!

Great getaway

Literally steps from the beach. Perfect getaway for a busy mom of 3 who needed some "me" time.

Owner's Response: That is so great that the "me" time worked for you just the way you planned. The power of the ocean works in many ways and this time it was for the good. Feel free to come back anytime...even with your children next time. Thanks again for choosing Beachy Keen.
