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 cottage in 1998

Why Marlee Krohn chose North East Florida

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 cottage 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

"In our twelve years of visiting Amelia Island this is the most tastefully decorated, cleanest, and most comfortable beach home we've rented. The owners have extended great hospitality to us and made sure that every detail of our stay was covered, from all the home supplies to arrival gifts such as a wonderful breakfast basket. We would love to rent this home year after year."

Expectations exceeded!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a 5 night stay at this beautiful beach house. It was our 2yo and 4 yo's first time to the ocean and we couldn't have asked for a better place to create these wonderful memories. The beach is so close and easily accessible and the home is so warm, clean, comfortable and welcoming! I highly recommend! The owner of the home was also a pleasure to communicate with!

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.

Simply stunning!

  • 5 of 5

What an incredible home! From the minute we pulled up and saw the beautiful front porch and how close the home was to the ocean we knew we were going to have a great week. But opening the door was even better. The renovation is tremendous. They kept the charm of a 30's beach cottage with all the modern amenities you could want. The kitchen and bath are top-notch. The beautiful wood floors throughout add so much warmth. The decorating is classic. And sleeping to the sound of the waves can't be beat except maybe by having coffee on the back deck and watching the sun rise over the Atlantic. This home is beyond compare and has it all!!!

Outstanding Property, Highly Recommended!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely extended weekend at this property. If I return to Amelia Island, I won't stay anywhere else. The house was perfect. There's a gorgeous view of the ocean from the deck, and the house is just a few steps from the beach. The house is in pristine condition -- well decorated and clean. We had everything we needed, including beach chairs, umbrellas, a surf board, and boogie boards, etc that were provided by the owner. The owner even had fresh muffins and treats waiting for us when we arrived (what a nice touch). There's also a great hammock with a view underneath the main deck. Loved it! You can't go wrong with this property. The owner was very responsive to our requests. A+++

Amazing Cottage and View!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 spent a week here over Spring Break and are already making plans to return next year! The minute you walk in, a gorgeous view of the ocean greets you. It is unbelievable how close you are! We had a view of the water from our bedroom, and the first morning I woke up to the sunrise and a dolphin swimming in the surf.

The cottage itself is beautifully decorated and has everything you need. So many books and games, plus beach toys, beach chairs and towels, umbrellas, and boogie boards, etc. There is an outdoor shower and hose to keep the sand off, which was very convenient. It was great to have a washer/dryer too. The cottage was immaculate. Great location -- we rented bikes for the week and biked to Fort Clinch and Egan's Creek Greenway, as well as restaurants in the area.

Marlee was great to work with and always readily available. Can't say enough about how great this vacation was and we can't wait to return!

Beautiful inside and out!

  • 5 of 5

John and I spent a perfect week at this gorgeous and comfortable beach cottage. Impeccable decor, comfortable furniture and absolutely spotless. We loved being able to not only see the ocean, but hear it from every room. After a long cold winter, this was just what we needed.
