Not your avarage beach house

  • 5 of 5

If you love the beach; and peace and quiet; and high-end furnishings; and quality amenities; and beautiful interior design; you can find it all at this beautiful home on the beach. The view is fantastic, the location is perfect, the hot tub is over the top! This place is really too good for the rental market but it's available for rent! It feels like a real home where someone has paid attention to detail and made sure that everything is just right for the occupants. It also feels brand new. I fully intend to rent it every time I return to Amelia Island. Hopefully, it will be available!

Above expectations

  • 5 of 5

I knew from the owner's photos on VRBO that the property was attractive and updated, but on arrival I was surprised by the attention to detail. It reinforced our choice of this home for our month-long January stay. There is good light from every angle, both from inside and out. Views of the dunes and the ocean are spectacular. The artwork is lovely and much enhanced by spot lighting. Appliances are new and function well. Dishes, cookware, and kitchen utensils exceeded my expectations, a rare thing in rental property. Owner was easily available to anwer the few questions we had. Great house on an interesting stretch of history-rich American Beach, which, like a lot of prime beachfront, will probably change soon.

Beautiful vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

Pelican Landing really is a paradise. The house is spectactuar and very well appointed. Dan has thought of everything and clearly cares for his home and the guests who stay there. The ocean and sunrise views from the two decks can’t be beat. The beach over the natural dune is amazing. We picked a wonderful quiet week in the fall. The summer beach goers were long gone, as were the Georgia-Florida fans. Only the sun and warm temperatures remained. We will definitely be back.

Perfect Vacation!!!

Our week at Pelican Landing was spectacular! Dan's beach home is beautiful and well maintained. The inside is gorgeous and extremely comfortable. The outside decks provide breathtaking views of the ocean. We never missed the exquisite sunrises...picture perfect. I must say this was the best beach vacation and my family and I will most definitely return.

Wonderful home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented beach houses 1-2 times a year for the last 12 years, and this was the best house we have rented! The owners have thought of everything you could possibly need while staying at the house. It was an absolutely perfect week!
