Lovely Cottage on a Peaceful Beach

  • 4 of 5

Upon opening the door, everyone said, "Wow!" This lovely cottage is updated and beautifully decorated. We enjoyed the quick access to the beach and appreciated the chairs, towels, umbrella, etc. which were all in excellent condition. The only reason, I did not give five stars is that the kitchen does not have adequate lighting which made cooking difficult, and the master bed had two divots which made it extremely uncomfortable. The twin beds were fine and bedding very nice.

Love love love this little cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We've been coming down to the island for years, and by far this little cottage has been my favorite place to stay so far! It was a spring getaway for my daughter and I and we immediately fell in love with our accommodations.

GREAT location! I absolutely adore the north beach area of the island. It has the Amelia Island of old feel to it. It's good that others have found this gem on the Atlantic, but the island has gotten busier and has changed quite a bit in the last two decades. North Beach has a touch (in between the new construction) of nostalgia. The north end beach many times is almost deserted. So if you like a quiet retreat, this is the area for you. Literally steps from the beach, the front porch is great to bask in the morning sun with your coffee.

We brought our bikes this trip and enjoyed riding through Fort Clinch and the ride to downtown is not very far.

The house is adorable. Simple furnishings, newly remodeled and very clean. The colors of sea glass green and gray is cool and calming. Appointed with everything we needed for our visit. I fully appreciated having the washer and dryer on site!

I'm even more appreciative that the cottage is dog friendly! We brought our pooches and they had an enjoyable vacation too! It seems they loved the cottage as much, or more than we did!

I will definitely rent again on our return with no hesitation! The rental process was super easy and Ryan was pleasant and informative. Thank you Destination Amelia for a great week and thank you to the owners for opening their home so others can enjoy it as well!

* my only suggestion would be to have a couple anirondack chairs on the backside of the house to enjoy the late afternoon sun. A little patio space on that side of the house would be perfect. There's enough room there for sure to do it!

4 1/2 - Great Location, Well-appointed beach cottage, perfect for relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was in the perfect location - steps from the beach, a quick bike ride to town, right next to the state park. This part of the beach was very quiet and we heard from a number of locals that it was the best location on the island. The cottage was well appointed and clean, obviously recently renovated. It was the perfect size, even bigger than we needed, for the two of us. We had a great experience with reserving the property and all of the communication with the property owners was easy, quick - no problems at all there. They were very helpful. We had no occasion to contact them while there.

The only slightly negative part of the experience, and my reason for 4 1/2 instead of 5 stars, was arriving to find that the dishes were all still in the dishwasher instead of being put away prior to our arrival. Additionally, the instructions requested that we wash all the towels, strip the beds, and start the dishwasher ourselves prior to departure. I understand there is a quick turn for the week long rentals. That being said, they do provide all of the dish/laundry detergents and everything you need for a week at the beach. The only thing you need is your toothbrush and bathing suit. So in that regard, they excelled more than any other beach house I've rented. And it was considerably cleaner than any other beach house I've rented.

Overall, I'd definitely recommend this property and will likely book it again.

Good Experience

  • 4 of 5

Don’t let the outside look fool you. The interior of the cottage is very clean and modernized, and access to the beach is only a few steps away. A short beach walk to Sandy Bottoms Restaurant makes for a scenic casual lunch. It’s only a few minutes from the historic village area, which we visited daily to stroll, shop and eat (Salty Pelican and Ciao Bistro were favorites). The lack of cell phone service takes a little getting accustomed to, as it is spotty or non-existent in many areas on the east side of the island. Also, make sure to verify that the door is locked when you go out. If the door isn't positioned correctly, the deadbolt doesn't engage (although it sounds like it has). This cottage worked great for us. Our travel is often restricted by our 10 year old small dog, which we don’t like to leave behind in a kennel. We decided to take her along on this trip to see how she travelled. The cottage was perfect for her. There was nothing to prompt her to bark, and she loved the beach as much or more than we did! She made herself at home immediately and I believe she was a bit sad to leave. We would definitely book this same cottage again.

A fine place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Our week at this house worked out very well. The place was very clean and neat and comfortably appointed. The hosts are attentive, friendly and considerate and if you need anything the response is polite and immediate. My wife and I particularly appreciated the location. It's in a quiet neighborhood with the ocean only yards away. Fort Clinch Park is right nearby and downtown is just a few minutes by car. Another plus, the biking and hiking trails of Egans Creek Greenway are also nearby. We would definitely stay here again.
