Overview

About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5)

The cottage is located right on the ocean. You will have direct access to the beach. Sitting on the deck, watching the shrimp boats in the evening and the sunrise in the morning while you enjoy breakfast in the screened-in porch on the deck; it doesn't get any better than this. The house is within walking distance of the Main Beach, putt putt golf, basketball courts, a skateboard park, a very nice public swimming pool with an entertaining kiddie pool and Fort Clinch State Park. There is a Kwik Mart/gas station down the road for those last minute supplies. Across the road is a surf shop for those of you who want to try surfing. There is a restaurant within walking distance.

About Rich Murren

My time is spent as a home remodeling contractor. And I am busy all the time with that job. My spare time is spent at the island. We love to come here with our new grandchildren, who are just discovering playing in the sand.

Rich Murren purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Rich Murren chose North East Florida

We came to Amelia Island for a realtor friend that needed help on their condo. We loved it here and realized that Amelia Island is truly 'Florida's Best Kept Secret'. There are no crowds and it is a short distance from Jacksonville Airport and the culture that Jacksonville offers if that is your choice. We enjoy long walks on the beach and going for a swim if we feel like it.

What makes this cottage unique

Watching the sun rise from the deck, watching the dolphins jump and dance, seeing the shrimp boats bring in their catch, pelicans flying in formation over the deck, the unique character of downtown Fernandina Beach, wonderful restaurants all with their own charm, friendly people everyplace you go, walking on the beach and finding cool shells. These are but a few of the benefits to staying on the beach.

Perfect for a spring getaway from the wintry cold of the northeast.

  • 5 of 5

The best part is the location right on the beach.

The cottage is well appointed and clean; easy to access. Spacious for three.

We particularly enjoyed the screened in dining area.

Great getaway

  • 5 of 5

Literally steps from the beach. Perfect getaway for a busy mom of 3 who needed some "me" time.

Owner's Response: That is so great that the "me" time worked for you just the way you planned. The power of the ocean works in many ways and this time it was for the good. Feel free to come back anytime...even with your children next time. Thanks again for choosing Beachy Keen.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

This was a great little cottage. Everything was clean when we arrived and we did not have any trouble with anything during out stay. Overall, it was a great place to stay! It is right on the ocean with an excellent view. The back deck was wonderful to sit on and still be able to see the ocean!

Exactly as described!

  • 5 of 5

This place was better than I even expected. Rich and Mary made it so easy. The bed was great! The view - amazing! We will definitely be back many many times. One of the best parts (not advertised) is the water pressure in the shower, no need for a trip to the spa this things massages and exfoliates! I loved it!

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you enjoyed your time at the house. Looking out on the ocean every day is indeed, amazing! Thanks for the water pressure endorsement. Had not thought of it in the description of the house, but maybe now...hmmmm?? Thanks again for choosing Beachy Keen.
