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 Amelia Island

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.

Great house! We didn't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this wonderful beach house. It was just as described and was very clean. It had everything we needed. Thanks for the coffee filters because I'd forgotten them! Mary was a delight to talk with and the transaction was smoothly handled. The deck was wonderful. We enjoyed the sunrise each morning with our coffee. We enjoyed the beach! We found shells and I finally found a sharks tooth! Thanks for having such a relaxing place!

Owner's Response: Sounds like you both had a great time AND the shark's tooth was the bonus you were hoping for! The beach does provide a stress relief and the shells and sharks tooth will remind you of that whenever you look at them when you are back home. Hope they also remind you that you and your husband are both welcomed back anytime you find the time again! Thank you again for choosing Beachy Keen.

Wonderful Time Had By All

  • 5 of 5

The house was cute and clean and could not have been in a better location. Four adults and one baby fit snuggly in the two bedrooms and the internet and cable worked easily and intuitively to help us through a rainy Saturday. The front porch was the perfect place to watch the sun rise on Sunday morning. We loved Beachy Keen and we hope to come back sometime next year!

Great beach house in a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect spot for our girl getaway; the four of us had an awesome time! In fact, we had to drag two of the girls kicking and screaming out the door this morning...

The house was stocked with everything we might have needed, the view from the deck for the morning sunrises was exquisite.

The beach was only a very short walk down a path; we spent hours gathering shells that were in abundance. Beach chairs were provided for the two ladies who forgot theirs.

For the one time we were able to drag ourselves away, we found Fernandina Beach, just a very short drive away, to be a delightful beach town full of great shops and restaurants.

We could not have asked for a better place to stay, and are already planning a return trip.

Thanks for your hospitality, Rich and Mary!

Location, location, location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great weekend getaway with lots of quality family time at Beachy Keen. The location is great...just steps away from the beach and a short bike ride to Fort Clinch State Park. The beach in front of the property is excellent. We enjoyed the ocean and taking walks looking for shark teeth (we found ten). The house is clean and provides a cozy environment for a small family. We enjoyed watching the sunset from the deck and relaxing in the family room playing board games. It is an older home so everything is not perfect, but we like to spend most of our time outside so it was perfect for us. The only suggestion I would provide is it may be time to replace the ac unit in the master as it did not cool that well.

Great Location...

  • 5 of 5

It was perfect for 3 adults and 2 small children. Lifeguards were close on the beach which was an added bonus. The beach was definitely a less traffic area. It is just a short drive to walmart, publix, and downtown area with all the restaurants as well as shopping. It was just what we wanted. We loved the screened in porch. We enjoyed several meals out there with a good breeze and no bugs!
