About Lynn and Jerry Russell

My husband Jerry and our two babies Weezer and Lucky moved to Fernandina Beach years ago. We are members of First Baptist Church where I volunteer. We love living in the beautiful beach town of Fernandina Beach because you get that home town feeling here. We are very blessed to have many true, loyal friends as we're sure you do in your home town. My husband and I are both from the Middle Georgia area, he from McRae and I am from from Dudley. We cherish our memories growing up in small towns, so FB hits home with us. The town has so much to offer with historic down town and the fort as well as restaurants, shopping and all the walking and bike riding you can handle. It is a very pet friendly town, but more importantly it is a pet friendly beach. Weezer and Lucky look forward to their walks on the beach with all their pals, Hannah, Chloe, Casey, Jenna, Rosie and Tippy and all the rest of the beach gang.....

Lynn and Jerry Russell purchased this house in 2005

Why Lynn and Jerry Russell chose North East Florida

We fell in love with house and decided to live here full time. We did a lot of remodeling and moved into the house in 2005 and have just now invested a lot of time, energy and $ in upgrades and real improvements. The BEST just got BETTER! We love that our home is so centrally located on the island. A public pool and YMCA pool is within a mile and a half from the house. My husband had visited the island over the years and decided this was where we wanted to retire when we sold our business .

What makes this house unique

On the beach with sweeping views from master bedroom and all of living area.

Plenty of room for everyone. There is a grass yard in the back for outdoor activities you or the kids may want to do

Best vacation in years

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented this house for the week in March when our adult children were on break, one from learning and the other from teaching. We also invited a former law school classmate and his wife and one of our "rental kids" and a friend of hers. The house comfortably accommodated us all plus my grandson and my son's dog (other grandson). In addition to the four bedrooms, the downstairs porch was enclosed to create a sunroom which contains a double hide-a-bed. We found everything we needed in the kitchen to prepare most meals at the house. There were plenty of pillows, linens and towels. The few problems that arose were promptly (same day) addressed by the Russells. They seemed honestly concerned that our stay be as comfortable as possible. My wife and I finished out the week with a host of wonderful memories of family, friends and sunrise over the water through the windows of the great room. This will definitely be my first choice of beach rentals in Fernandina should we have the opportunity to return.

Great house for a large family

  • 5 of 5

Just stayed at this house my 3 young children and several family members including great-grandparents and had a wonderful time. The house is well kept with excellent views. The walk to the beach is a bit cumbersome through the dunes for the older folks and toddlers but well worth it. Would highly recommend to anyone looking to stay in the area with a large party.

We had a great vacation at this house. It was just what we were hoping for in a vacation rental. It was the perfect size for 10 people!

So much fun!!

  • 5 of 5

Hi!

We visited wonderful Amelia Island with our youngest son who lives on the West coast. We were so happy to see him and to have the opportunity to stay in this awesome home. The rooms were comfortable with fresh sheets. Plenty of towels and the views fabulous. We had our morning coffee on the deck with the nice breeze from the ocean and listened to the sounds of the waves! The Kitchen was complete for our needs and the family room was cozy.

WE were very pleased with this home and enjoyed the fun decorations as well.

The only thing that we noticed that should be an easy fix... one of the sinks in the master bath did not have hot water.

Some time in the future, having a boardwalk to the ocean would be a benefit , but all in all was wonderful!
