Perfect beach getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We wanted a place for a mini beach vacation and this was perfect. It took only a few minutes to be right in the heart of beautiful historic downtown Fernandina Beach. So many wonderful things to do there. Excellent restaurants and shopping.

The house was also right around the corner from the fort, which the men enjoyed exploring one afternoon. The beach is right across the street. We enjoyed sitting on the deck overlooking the ocean and listening to the waves. One of the most fun things about staying here was the evening deer run. They cut through the back yard, walk down by the driveway, and cross the street up to the dunes and the beach. We made sure we were there every evening around 5pm to watch them.

We loved staying here and the fact that it’s pet friendly is a huge plus. Thanks to Chris and Dick for allowing us to stay there.

Nice property, In a great North-end Amelia Island location

  • 4 of 5

We had good communication with Chris and no problems getting into the property on arrival, most everything needed for the stay was on-site. The house was clean and generally in good condition. We really enjoyed being able to walk across the street to the beach at any time, and having Luna (our dog) with us was a plus. Watching the deer come

out around the neighborhood and run over to the beach was really cool too. Thanks for a nice stay!

Old Florida

  • 5 of 5

I love Amelia Island! This time stayed only a week. The house was very comfortable and almost on the beach. Plenty of room for all 3 of us plus (1) Maggie. We all loved seeing the deer every day cutting thru the yard & over to the dunes at the beach. Sometimes they grazed right in the back yard.It was a sight to behold. We had a family emergency while there which limited what we were able to do with limited free time..All in all it was a good time!

Perfect Week on Fernandina Beach, Florida

  • 5 of 5

This house is located in an awesome location. The beach is just across the street and the area is very quiet. We enjoyed seeing deer run through the yard and the quiet evening walks along the beach. Chris and Dick are very accommodating and eager to assist in any way. I will definitely be back!!!

About Chris and Dick

We are 'retired' residents of Amelia Island and own and operate a small construction business as well as manage our 3 vacation rental properties. We came to Amelia Island as permanent residents in 2003 from the Northeast and made this peaceful island paradise our home.

Chris and Dick purchased this house in 1997

Why Chris and Dick chose Amelia Island

We purchased this property in 1997 as a weekend get away. We found that Amelia Island was easier for us to get to than braving the traffic to get to the New England beaches. We chose this property because it is located in the quiet north end neighborhood and has 300 feet of direct ocean front as well as Fort Clinch behind us. This end of the island is all residential, there are no hotels, condos, public beaches and very little traffic. Most of the properties are single family homes or duplexes. Our beach is beautiful white sand and is never crowded. We take long walks to the fishing pier. Our dogs love to run at the end of a long leash, dig holes in pursuit of whatever creatures and dive in the waves. This beach is also a great spot to swim, as it is not prone to rip currents and has a gradual slope to deeper water. Low tide is a great time to hunt for shark teeth or collect shells. It really doesn't get any better than this.

What makes this house unique

This a stilt house which gives us great views and a protected place to park cars and boats. We do welcome pets. We have 2 dogs of our own. That is Mister Buster in the picture and he has a twin Cairn Terrier, Mister Bronson who looks just like Toto. The main living area of this house is tile, the decks have a child/pet gate at the top of the stairs. This area of the beach always has a breeze so you can sit on either deck depending on your preferred view.

The road is a dead end so the traffic is local and light. The cottage faces the ocean with unobstructed views and to the west is Fort Clinch State Park. We have full length decks both back and front. All three bedrooms have patio door access to the decks. Beach driving at various locations, shark tooth hunting, skate park, Historic Fort Clinch, sunset cruise, fishing, golf, all 2 miles or closer. Historic and quaint downtown has wonderful restaurants and shopping. Watch the sunset from Brett's patio. Dine at some of the best restaurants in Florida. Charter a fishing boat, take a ride to Cumberland Island for a stroll and dinner. Enjoy the new bike trails on Amelia and Big Talbot Islands.
