Overview

About the property

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..

Enjoyable

  • 4 of 5

Like Mr. Miller said, if you are looking for big and luxurious/fancy, this is not the place. But, if you are looking for directly on the beach, conveniently located to town/restaurants, and pet friendly, then this IS it.

The porch is the charm of this cottage.....perfect for your morning coffee. Also, Mr. Miller has great suggestions for restaurants, car washes, dog parks, etc. 👍?

Tremendously relaxing and convenient to all the Amelia/Fernandina restaurants and attractions.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage offers comfortable accommodations. The porch with great view of the beach and ocean is a great place to relax and enjoy the sound of waves. In addition to a wide range of restaurants to enjoy, we love the nearby dog park which we visited every day.

As a golfer, there is a good variety of challenging courses to play.

Jim is a very concerned and responsive owner. This was our third visit and we definitely will return...very positive experience!
