Beautiful 3 bedroom home with large deck with view of Fernandina Beach

Bella Sera has a wonderful view of the beach, just one street back. The large deck is great for relaxing. This home has 3 bedrooms with 3 queen beds.

Captain beds, in both upstairs bedrooms, can sleep a few more guests. The cozy living area comfortably seats six people.

You only have to look to find something fun to do. The area also boasts some wonderful restaurants. And the home has a fully equipped kitchen if you would rather stay in. Maybe even cook the fish you catch right on the beach. Fernandina offers a relaxing beach vacation without the crowds.

About Cheri Howard

My husband and I have been visiting this area since 1987. We have always enjoyed this area. Our kids 'grew up' here enjoying the beach and all it had to offer. We decided to build this house so our entire family can continue to come to this wonderful place. We enjoy sharing our place and know that you will truly enjoy the time if you decide to stay at Bella Sera.

Cheri Howard purchased this house in 2014

Why Cheri Howard chose Amelia Island

We enjoy the north end of the island because of it low key atmosphere, expansive beach, and proximity to the so many amenities.

Perfect for beach girls weekend!

  • 5 of 5

I came with here two of my girlfriends in early spring. We had an amazing time! The house is plenty big for 3 (3 bedrooms), but could easily sleep more (it would be a great place to come back with my husband and 2 little kids). The sitting area is cozy and bright. The kitchen is great (we didn't use too much, but I can see it would be awesome for cooking). The location is terrific--just steps from the beach! I loved everything about the house. The owners were great--super easy to work with and she gave us great suggestions for things to do.

Lovely home, very well equipped, very clean. Wonderful location.

My sister, my best friend of 47 years and I spent 4 delightful days in this beautiful home on the beach.

We did a lot of cooking and had every utensil, pan, bowl, etc available to us. The owner was very accommodating, letting us stay for a later checkout time. The beach was just a few steps away.

There were even beach chairs available for us to use. I would definitely recommend this charming home.

Fantastic beach house!

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulous time we had at this beach house! We celebrated a "girls weekend" with five adults. The home was perfect for enjoying the beach and each other's company. We were a short five minute drive from great shopping and restaurants. I would highly recommend this listing to families and friends. Cheri was also wonderful to work with. She was accommodating, helpful and a joy to work with. We hope to be back one day!

Wonderful house and the section of the beach was a dream.

  • 5 of 5

This house was great for a family. We had plenty of room and this part of Fernandina Beach is not too crowded. There are lots of shells and sharks teeth to find with wide open waves to boogie board. The house had the basics necessary to cook meals and to enjoy the beach.
