Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Fernandina Beach - 1930 Beach Cottage

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

The newly remodeled beach cottage is still “rustic”; it is basically the same as when my father built it with the addition of a few modern conviences. Its charm is the view from the front porch. If you are looking for luxury or spacious accommodations, it is not for you. It has a living area with cable TV. A dining table that seats four is located in the living area, with seating for two more at the kitchen counter. The kitchen is small but functional with dishwasher & microwave. The back bedroom has two twin beds. The bathroom separates the bedrooms, and like the kitchen it is small but functional. The front bedroom has a queen bed and TV. It has central air, with new ductwork in 2015. There is a washer and dryer in the garage. Parking for up to three cars is available at the side of the house, the garage is not available for parking..

What makes this cottage unique

The view from the porch at sunrise and in the evening, watching the shrimp boats add to the charm of this rustic cottage.

This is our second visit to Fernandina Beach and we have stayed at Mr. Miller's cottage both times. The ocean view is awesome from the front porch! We appreciate the fact the he allows pets, so we are able to take our baby with us so she can enjoy the beach too! Love this place and we will be back next year!

Great location right on the beach! A strong plus is the porch with a great view of the water!

  • 5 of 5

Mr. Miller, The 1930's Beach Cottage is a great beach getaway place for my wife and Me. Cant say enough about the porch as when we not at the beach, we spent as much time as we could on the porch. With the kitchen fully furnished, it makes cooking a breeze, when we are not out enjoying the fine restaurants of Fernandina. When we first arrived, we were certainly glad to see you, and found the property very clean. You do a great job keeping this "vacation getaway" well maintained.

This was our 2ed year to stay in the 1930's cottage and we are definitely planning a 3rd visit in 2017.

Thanks again for making our stay a very good experience.

This was my second stay at the 1930s Beach cottage. I love staying there with my two little yorkies. It was a wonderful stay with everything you could ask of a beach rental. The porch was perfect for relaxing and allowing the dogs to run around. Owners are great!!

Perfect for our needs!

  • 5 of 5

The 1930's Beach Cottage in Fernandina Beach, while quaint and small, is full of charm! The immaculate cottage is well-maintained and has everything we need. Towels, linens, and even beach toys for the kiddos are all here. The kitchen is well-appointed if you are inclined to cook. The view is beautiful, and the porch is great for afternoon and evening ocean- and stargazing. Just a short walk across the dunes brings you to the beach, and the outdoor shower is convenient. We love watching dolphins frolic in the surf as we relax. While you are there, don't miss the historic Marina Restaurant, frequented by the locals and offering fresh, local seafood. Tasty's has great hamburgers, and be sure you try their milkshakes! Jim and his family are quite proud of the family history represented in this cottage, and love answering questions about the area. Without being intrusive, their friendly service makes us feel right at home. They try to ensure that your stay is pleasant and relaxed. We love coming to this pleasant cottage and hope to enjoy it for years to come!

It has it all

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and our dog recently returned home after spending two great weeks at the cottage...this was a return visit since we had such a great time last year. It is the epitome of relaxed beachfront living.

The cottage has very efficiently designed space, and the kitchen is very usable and well stocked with all needed tools/equipment. The wonderful back porch affords great views of the ocean waves and sunrises!

Fernandina Beach has an excellent dog park ( with an in ground swimming pool for the dogs!) which we visited most every day. The cottage is very close to the quaint downtown of Fernandina Beach with all of its attractions and great restaurant choices...plenty of variety.

As a golfer, I was able to choose from more than a dozen conveniently located and challenging courses.

Bottom line, we had a blast and will return.
