About Chris

We are professional vacation rental property owner and manage this property along with 3 others ourselves. Our goal is for you to have a carefree, peaceful and fun vacation on this very special Island.

Chris purchased this house in 2005

Why Chris chose Amelia Island

This property is a 3 story custom home that is fully equipped for your vacation with direct ocean and beach access located in one of the most private and quiet locations on the Island. The property has a gourmet, gas kitchen, with wine cooler and double ovens. We custom built this property and are now empty-nesters so it has everything one would want in a beach front home. We have 4 covered porches all with beautiful beach views and a large roof top deck where you can watch the dolphins and birds and during the season watch the Right Whales swim by. This is also a good surfing and surf fishing spot. The master suite has a 180 degree view through large windows, a double shower and inside hot tub. This property is ideal for a wedding party accommodation. We are available for concierge and catering services. Our location is very close to markets, restaurants and golf without being on the main road so there is very little traffic.

What makes this house unique

We are off the beaten path with occasional traffic passing by. The neighborhood is all residential and the beach is never crowded. If you like, you can walk to The Ritz or Omni Plantation.

Totally would do it again!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house! No houses next door on either side, private "path" to American Beach which is basically private as well. (no lifeguards) Short drive to everything you would want and, if necessary, one could walk to a convenience store.

The house is well stocked with everything you could possibly want to cook with. Bed were comfortable and "private" spaces abound.

We watched the eclipse from the fourth floor deck which was very cool.

In short, you will not regret renting this house.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for staying with us! Once again our position on the coast and our great dunes protected us from the storms. On this part of the coast the sand builds up rather than erodes. We are very fortunate. Come back anytime !!

Spectacular views from all levels of this beautiful, relaxing home right on American Beach

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this home with our 8 year old grandson from Ohio, his parent and our two grandchildren ages 10 and 14 who are from Florida for the children's spring break. We also brought our small Golden Retriever. Everyone enjoyed the amazing views from all the windows and roof top deck. We searched for stars and contellations with an app. Even on the few rainy days we had, we enjoyed watching the ocean. The floor plan allows for private and large spaces where everyone can gather. Our youngest grandchild and parent stayed on the lower level, so he could set up his playmobil people in the lower level family room. There is a very nice washer and dryer there which cleans beach towels very quickly, and an extra refrigerator. Our other grandchildren each had their own queen rooms with televisions and bathrooms which they loved. The third floor master has gorgeous views of the ocean. Our son and his wife from Ponte Vedra stayed one night so our grandaughter slept on the day/ trundle bed in the 3rd floor sitting room outside the master. No carpeting! We used the tiled entryway with bench as a drop zone for shoes and jackets, etc. when entering. We truly enjoyed the kitchen and great room area for preparing (almost) all of our meals. The hot tub is amazing and fun for all! The beach access is fabulous- right out the back door. We discovered a tortoise living in the backyard dunes and enjoyed watching him come and go. Our son reported him to the Florida Wildlife because they are protected and their habitats support many other species. The beach is flat and wide and perfect for playing soccer and flying kites. Our grandchildren built several sandcastle complexes and forts and people stopped to admire and take pictures of their creations. People do drive their trucks on the beach and park to fish, etc. but they seemed vigilant around the kids. Safety patrols come by regularly. The home is halfway between the Ritz and the Omni and you can walk to either. Florida's largest sand dune is right across the street! Harris Teeter was the best grocery and the closest- 5 minutes away. We did buy bottled water because Amelia Island's water tastes terrible. The fireplace wasn't working and the third floor viewing deck was off limits due to needed repairs so that was sad but life happens. The owners are very nice and easy to communicate with. It is a very relaxing home and convenient location. We highly recommend this property and hope we can come back! Great memories!

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed for a week in March. The home was lovely. It was very spacious and comfortable. The kitchen was great, which was a plus for us because we like to cook. The house is located right on the beach, which couldn't have been better. I don't have any complaints! We would definitely stay again!

Great beach house in a great private/quiet location

  • 5 of 5

This is by far the best beach house we have stayed in with my extended family (we rent a beach house every year). 6 adults and 4 children, plenty of living space area to sit, read and watch the ocean. Bedrooms are spacious and there is a jacuzzi on top floor. Trundle bed on the 3rd floor and bunk beds on the ground floor worked perfectly for the little ones. Lots of space to put airbeds if you need to. Porch on every floor. If you plan to cook (which we did) there are plenty of kitchen stuff you can use like pots, pans, utensils etc. From the back porch you have to go thru the dunes to go to the beach, maybe 30 steps if that. The area is away from the commercial buildings and on the week days we almost have the beach to ourselves. Close to grocery (Harris), gasoline station and downtown if you plan to shop. The house has a lot of windows so you can enjoy the view while inside the house. The owners are very nice and responsive to questions. Overall, this is a great beach house and would definitely recommend this to anyone.
