About Heather McInnis

We purchased this home with our extended family in mind. After extensive renovations, we have enjoyed calling Amelia Island our home away from home.

Heather McInnis purchased this townhome in 1999

Why Heather McInnis chose Florida North East

This property is much larger than other properties available on Amelia Island with the same number of bedrooms. It has a terrific location in the middle of the Island between downtown and Amelia Plantation. The beach house is 200 steps to the sand.

Perfect location

  • 3 of 5

We loved Amelia Island and the location of the property. The unit had everything we needed for our month's stay. However, the back patio needed to opened for use and the unit needs some updating, but the unit is very comfortable overall.

Winter Escape

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year we have stayed in this townhouse for two months during the winter season. We appreciate the atmosphere on Amelia Island, and love the old historic area of Fernandina Beach, with its wonderful restaurants. Sea Castles is located in a central location, close to everything: directly across the street from the boardwalk to the beach; a short walk to The Surf Bar and Grill; only a few minutes to drive to the golf club; a five minute drive to three major grocery stores; and short bike ride to the south end bicycle paths. Owners Elaine and Les, and their daughter Heather, ensure that you have a pleasant stay.

Nice Rental Property

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property. Everything was in order and we experienced no problems with the property. Great location across the beach from a

public beach access. Extra bed in the 2nd and 3rd bedrooms is also a plus. Would definitely stay here again if I am ever in the area again!

Great winter location for snowbirds

  • 4 of 5

The townhouse is located in an excellent location, close to many attractions/facilities. Considering the townhouse is directly on A1A, and across a side street from, "The Surf", a neighbourhood bar and grill; there was very little distracting noise. On arrival the accommodations were clean and well organized. The kitchen was well equipped with utensils, and new stainless steel appliances. The front balcony was a wonderful location for breakfast, and the afternoon "Happy Hour". The townhouse was able to comfortably accommodate seven adults when needed. We appreciated the paved bike lanes on the streets, and paved bike paths connecting Amelia Is. to Talbot and Little Talbot Islands.The owners were kind enough to leave notes regarding places to see, things one could do, and restaurants we might want to try. We had a minor problem with the internet on arrival, one call to the owner, and the problem with the provider was quickly solved. The historic area of Fernandina Beach contains beautiful, old homes and buildings. The restaurants on Amelia are excellent. We will return next winter.

Great Way to Have a Family Get Together

  • 5 of 5

The location was perfect right across the street from the beach-- and also in an area that is not overdeveloped and commercialized.

We were 4 adults meeting up from different areas of FL and GA to spend a few days over the holidays so Amelia Island was a good choice travel wise.

The townhouse was roomy, clean, and comfortable on all accounts.

The owners and rep were responsive to all inquiries and made you feel comfortable about asking them for any help needed.

I would go back for a longer stay.

My families wonderful vacation!!!!

  • 4 of 5

We travelled from Maryland and Ohio for a weeks fun at the beach. The weather was almost perfect and this place we stayed above average. It was clean and well equipped. There were 3 adults and 5 children and lots of room for everyone. Having a 1 year old made the location excellent. Only steps from the beach when he was ready to go. The pool was beautiful and well kept. We had a day at the Fort and a day walking the shops downtown. We tried many of the excellent restaurants in the area. Would definitely recommend this as a 'Perfect Townhouse for Your Beach Retreat'.

Sea Castles is located on Amelia Island within steps from the beach. A block away is our favorite restaurant The Surf. Touring companies will take you by trolley or horse drawn carriage around historic Fernandina Beach. There are several golf courses and tennis courts available, as well as charter boat rentals and tours of the intercostal waterway and Cumberland Island. Shopping abounds from the extravagant to budget friendly finds. The beach is beautiful and with plenty of shells to take home. The pool is on the property 2 doors down and is available for relaxing and cool dip.
