What a disappointment that the property rental company did not provide us with full disclosure about the ongoing situation SURROUNDING this beachfront property. The home itself is a gem and the photos of the interior are true. Unfortunately, the photos you see here of the beach are not. This is not what it looks like, nor what it sounds like. The property rental company failed to inform us that Fernandina Beach has been undergoing a major beach replenishment since last fall. From the home's balcony, you are actually looking at construction equipment and a large black pipe running the length of the beach. And what you're hearing is heavy equipment with rollers at 1am and 2am and 3am and 4am and 5am, etc. And what you're feeling from your bed is the construction equipment going back and forth on the beach behind the home and shaking the entire house at 1am and 2am and 3am and 4am and 5am, etc. The City of Fernandina's website clearly states that "This will be a twenty-four hour a day operation." They are correct! All of this is in addition to major construction being done on the home next door - 20 feet away, so I hope you enjoy a 7:30am hammering wake-up call on your vacation. Sadly, on the principle of full disclosure, I will never rent from this company again because some things are just not right, legal, but not right.

Owner's Response: The timeliness of the dredging which enhances our beautiful beaches while predictable, one can not determine when the machinery will be in front of a home or rental property. All guests were informed upon arrival that this yearly project takes place on our beaches and some were relocated due to the inconvenience. If another oceanfront rental was available during your stay, this would have eagerly been offered to you. Construction and remodels are occurring all over the island. Homes are not required to let neighbors know that construction will take place. We apologize for the disturbance but have no control over home owner's updating. Amelia Rentals strives to be the leader in customer satisfaction and we do apologize for this less than desirable stay due to situations out of our control.

Unique get-away

  • 5 of 5

Katie's lighthouse is really a gem if you're looking for a cool, funky vibe. Unfortunately, we were only able to stay there for one night because of an all-night dredging project being done to lay pipe behind the house (totally out of the control of the owners--just bad timing for us). The rental agency was fantastic, though, and allowed us to switch venues. The owner of Katie's Lighthouse came to meet us and seemed as disappointed as we were by the dredging. If we are fortunate enough to make it back to Amelia Island, I would love to stay here again!

The kitchen was well appointed, the decor was charming, the view and location were fantastic, and the bedrooms were very comfortable. My only word of caution would be that all 3 bedrooms are at the top of a narrow, winding staircase, so if you have mobility issues or really bulky luggage, you might want to take that into account.

Very enjoyable, very eclectic

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable time--3-nights, 4-days. Visited into Fernandina Beach twice--once to take in the sights, once for dinner. Would highly recommend this property to anyone that wants a great place to stay. One of a kind, and in a very good way.
