Rustic And Quaint Florida Beach House - Awesome View/ Pet Friendly

Bedrooms 4
Space 1,160 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 7 nights


About the property

4 Bedrooms and 2 Bathrooms

This house allows you to truly experience Fernandina Beach - it is like stepping back in time! There is just nothing to beat sitting on the front porch swing enjoying the lovely breeze and a view to die for. This is what vacation is all about!

The house is not quite on the beach - there is a public sand road in front of the house - but don't let that deter you from this wonderful and for the most part- remote part of the beach.

The house has an open living room/dining area and 4 bright bedrooms all with ceiling fans branch off the living room - 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom on either side of the main room and hardwood floors throughout.

The kitchen is at the far end of the main room, separated from the dining table by a small bar area. While it is small and compact, it has everything you need to cook up your favorite meal. The dishwasher is a portable unit, so remember to follow the instructions!

There is an outside deck off the kitchen with chairs and a gas grill - this is a real suntrap in the afternoons. And of course, in the front of the house is the very cute porch - open to the wonderful sea air and sound of the waves - you can sit here on the rocking chairs and watch the dolphins put on a show.

This is a typical older Florida beach house - with lots of it's own charm and personality. There is dish TV in the main room with DVD player and just to be somewhat 'modern' there is Wi-Fi - but no phone. Come and stay here to get away from it all - you will love the 'old time feel.'

We had a wonderful time staying in this cottage. The view could not get any better and the beach was not crowded and extremely peaceful. The cottage was well stocked and VERY clean. It has a big dining room table, perfect for jigsaw puzzles. The kitchen had everything we needed. The title fits the cottage perfectly...."rustic and quaint" but these are certainly positive qualities for this cottage. We had two dogs with us who had a wonderful stay as well. We are so hoping to return in the near future. Also, the manager was fantastic to work with and wanted our stay to be perfect.

in Desperate Need of TLC

  • 3 of 5

I should start my review by saying that the ocean view is really spectacular. This property is literally right on the beach. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect location. That being said, when we first pulled up to the house I actually thought for a brief moment that the property had been condemned. From the outside it's in very poor shape. All of the other houses on this road are in considerably better shape. Inside is a bit better but you definitely won't find any frills. It definitely serves it's purpose as a beach cottage but it really needs a major overhaul. The interior was generally clean, but all in all it just felt like everything was on it's last leg. Even the shower faucets are so worn and mildewy that they are hard to turn. There is not one comfortable piece of furniture.

The price was ok, but I would not stay there again. It's just too run down.

If you’re looking for a classic, comfortable beach cottage, this is it! Three friends and I rented this house for four nights in mid-September and it was everything we needed. The house isn’t fancy, but it more than met our needs. During the day we wandered out onto the lovely beach and at night we perched on the porch to watch the beautiful full moon rise over the ocean. (Apologies to the neighbors who had to endure our lunar-inspired singalongs!) Great location on a delightfully quiet beach. Rhona, the manager, was very friendly, easy to work with, and very responsive. We would definitely return!

Charming cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this cottage - fantastic location and it is very charming inside. It's an older cottage and looks very small from the outside, but inside, it is very comfortable and spacious. Plus, you can take your dog which is a huge plus. We had a small dog, one reviewer mentioned taking 2 big dogs, I wouldn't recommend doing that unless they were older. Although roomy, if you had the max number of people and 2 big dogs, that would too much. This cottage should be advertised ocean front because you are right there at the sand dunes and ocean. Parking is a bit challenging and tight - you can't get any more than 3 cars parked. We had 5 guests total and the cottage is perfect for that size group although it sleeps more. The leasing agent is very nice and responsive. We got our deposit back within a week. There is a doggie gate too which is great. One recommendation to the owners - put a lock on the master bedroom door and put better hanging hooks in that same room. Thank you for leasing this pet friendly cottage - I would definitely stay here again!! :)

So peaceful and relaxing ! Short walk to beach .Loved swinging on the porch. Found tons of shells and quite a few sharks teeth. I felt like I was transferred back in time in this spacious, old Florida style home.

We plan a family beach vacation every year for our kids and our grandkids to Fernandina Beach. We are all in agreement that this rustic house is the best place we have rented; very roomy for the 8 of us, perfect location for an awesome view of the ocean, perfect location for grandkids, and the best part of the house is the front porch. And the manager I corresponded with is the greatest.

I think we have found a new "home-away-from-home" for our family vacations to Fernandina Beach.

Owner's Response: Sorry for the late response, but so glad that you had a wonderful vacation staying at this great little house! The location is hard to beat, sitting out on the porch with an unobstructed view of the beach just across the sand road - makes all your cares melt away, doesn't it? We hope to see you back again in the near future and remember that we offer 10% discount to returning renters. Regards Rhona/Premier Beach Rentals
