About Marlee Krohn

I grew up in Atlanta and have been visiting the island all my life! It is still as pristine as it was all those years ago! The memories are all wonderful and a lot of the island and the establishments are still here!!! My whole family visits again and again! We all can't get enough of our home and the island!!!

Marlee Krohn purchased this house in 1998

Why Marlee Krohn chose Amelia Island

It spoke to us as soon as we walked in! It needed a lot of TLC but there is something wonderful and calming about this lovely home! Not to mention, that is SO VERY CLOSE to the ocean!!! Our home is 'one of a kind' and never disappoints!

What makes this house unique

The simplicity and the views and the possibilities made us fall in love with our home! We made all those dreams come true when we renovated our home roof to sand! We kept the integrity of our home; keeping the wood ceiling, walls and floors and bringing them back to their original beauty and added the modern conveniences. The views are magnificent everywhere in our home! The outside decks are breath taking! It's an incredible home and we love sharing it!!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Absolutely, positivity, the best place for a sister's beach retreat ever! This home is so cute. The decor is outstanding and so beautiful. All your little touches do not go unnoticed. Everything you have done to elevate this gem is so well thought out and melds so well together. Thank you for opening it up to us. We will be back!

Breathtaking home! Beachfront delight. Perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in August 2016 with our two children (5 years old and 10 months old) for our first visit to Ameila island. The house is breathtaking. Directly on the beach, with windows all around and a master bedroom which seems to float over the sand dunes.

Perfect location to explore Fort Clinch (less than 1 mile jog to park entrance), downtown Fernandina Beach, or just step outside and enjoy the ocean.

The owner has truly thought of everything. Full kitchen with everything organized, high quality towels and sheets, beach equipment, a nice outdoor shower, and of course the interior design (you can see on the listing) is amazing.

Owner was available instantly by phone to handle check in, answer questions about the area, and even helped coordinate delivery of some baby supplies (crib, beach stroller) before our arrival.

Highly recommend this unique property. Not to be missed!

PS: If traveling with kids, we used baby's away and rented a full size crib, beach stroller and high chair. Delivered to the house in good condition and saved us having to travel with these items.

Idyllic. Before you know it, you start wishing you lived there.

  • 5 of 5

Please don't tell anyone about this place so it will be available when we want to go back. I can't say enough about the place itself, its perfect location by the beach and near the town of Fernandina Beach, and the owner's concern for our well-being. Top marks.

Olde-world Florida cottage is everything (and more) it is described as being

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful and olde-world Florida cottage is everything it is described as being. It was spotlessly clean, roomy, and had everything we needed for a delightful stay. In addition, the location cannot be beat (the ocean is your back yard). Will definitely stay again.
