Even better than the photos

  • 5 of 5

We loved this little beach house! The photos made it look nice, but actually being there made it so much better! Everything felt warm, cozy, and homey. It was a peaceful location and the house was furnished with everything we needed. I would come back anytime!

The home was very nicely decorated. It was a short walk to the beach. It had everything you could possibly need. We had a great stay.

Fernandina Beach

  • 4 of 5

Great place. Large fenced yard that is perfect for families with children and/or pets. Very clean and well maintained property. Close to the beautiful beach and near the State Park. Convenient location to get to groceries, drug stores, and Historic downtown shops and restaurants. Loved watching the deer that came through the neighborhood. It would have been perfect if there had been a view of the ocean from the house. Also, if the top floor is rented, you can hear the neighbors walking. We had a very considerate group upstairs so not a big problem for us. We had a wonderful time and hope to make it back one day soon. Thanks!

Cute little place, easy beach access!

  • 4 of 5

Lovely duplex, clean, cute! Especially appreciated the extras you don't always find - plenty of spices and pantry items, dishwasher soap, solo cups, step-stool for kids, beach chairs and toys, and a sweet doggie basket full of treats, bowls and toys. Patio was lovely, though the upper unit deck gets the sun and ocean view. In a very quiet neighborhood which was nice. We forgot a deck of cards and wished we found one there. Overall a really nice stay.

*Nothing to do with the rental itself but beware the off-season dredging of the beach. A neighbor told us it happens nearly every off-season and we happened to be there for it this time. Our beach access was closed for the last 2 days of our stay and the construction (which is 24/7) is pretty loud. Kids kinda liked watching it though!

Peaceful, Easy Feeling

  • 5 of 5

I guess most people who book this property are looking forward to a lovely beach vacation. For me that wasn't the case. While visiting in NC I broke my foot. With my dog in tow I needed to find a place to stay near Jacksonville since I was going to Mayo Clinic of Fl for a consultation. To further complicate matters I had to enlist a friend to drive me who could not find a last minute sitter for her dog. After reviewing all the hotels in the area I decided to try VRBO and found the Heller's property. I felt it would be a nice place, I wanted something nice for my friend since she was doing so much for me. It did not disappoint. The property was lovely, clean and had everything you could need. We could hear the surf from the back porch and laughed about the "good ole days" on coastal North Carolina. The dogs loved it. There is a large fenced lot attached that the dogs "patrolled" for wayward squirrels and lizards. It was so relaxing for me after days in a hotel trying to walk a dog hopping on one foot! The neighborhood is quiet (this was in January) and appears to be totally safe. I ended up having surgery and hope to visit again in February when I go back for my check up. Loved it!
