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 North East Florida

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.

Perfect beach house

  • 5 of 5

This home is a fantastic ocean front property with gorgeous views. It is an easy walk over the dune on a soft path. It felt like a private beach get away. We had theee families staying together with plenty of space and activities for everyone. The home is well equipped which made meal prep easy. The roof top deck was the perfect happy hour spot. From there you have 270 degree views. You can fall asleep listening to the waves and wake up to the sunrise. Gorgeous home. Thanks for sharing.

Fabulous vacation house for a group

  • 5 of 5

Spacious rooms filled with sunlight from every main room. . A kitchen for a real cook with everything that you could need to make a great meal; especially double ovens and lots of counter space. Grocery stores and shopping very near by that are very well stocked. . Direct access to the beach and sunsets. Restful, very quiet and pleasant experience that we all enjoyed. We would definetely stay here again and highly recommend it.

Beautiful and comfortable high end home set on a nearly private beach. Awesome kitchen.

  • 5 of 5

What a place to relax and soak up the sun. This is a spacious home with three distinct living areas with 4 patios and a roof top deck. The beach is directly off the ground patio via a short level walk through the dunes. The neighborhood is quiet and well off the main road but it is a short ride to groceries, restaurants and the quaint downtown. The house has everything so we just kicked back and enjoyed the beach, cooked up a storm, watched a full moon rise, woke to sunrises over the ocean and laughed at the gopher tortoise digging in the sand. Our week was in the 90s but the house held a comfortable 70 to 72 degrees. We will be back.

Our Week on Amelia Island

  • 5 of 5

It was a wonderful Family vacation!! The place was perfect with plenty of room for the 10 of us. Our 4 grandkids slept in the room on the bottom floor - The boys in the bunk and the girls in the double bed!! The washer and dryer were there too and saw plenty of use.

The Great Room on the 2nd floor was a delight. Plenty of room in the kitchen area for more than one cook! The windows looking at the ocean were a perfect backdrop to the room. We slept on that floor and our adult kids were on floor 3. The outdoor porches were a great place for morning coffee, lunches, and late night drinks .

Having the beach right outside our door worked well for all of us - especially the kids. They were ready to head down to the beach by 9:00! The water was just the perfect temperature for us "northeners" and the waves were so much fun to ride and jump.

We truly had a splendid week!!

Great place to host a family gathering

  • 5 of 5

The house on American beach is great for a family gathering. The kitchen is well equipped and there are plenty of dishes, bowls, glasses, pots and pans etc. The house is on American Beach which is beautiful and not crowded. You can walk for miles on the beach. The owners were very helpful when small issue arose. We would definitely go back again and recommend it to our friends.

What is not to love? Don't really want to wait a year....

  • 5 of 5

What is not to LOVE?!

Sunrise over the ocean with my head still on my pillow....

Majestic main floor with panoramic view and ocean sounds....

Rooftop fireworks - both man-made and majestic stars....

Nearby golf courses, fun stores with very friendly shopkeepers, Amelia Tavern with our favorite friend/bartender/manager Carol, fun pubs and restaurants....

Interesting history - pirates, American Beach, nearby islands with wild horses....

This was our second week at Mermaid Cottage (more like mansion!) We plan to keep it a yearly getaway tradition! How can you not feel special and pampered by this owner designed and over-the-top-appointed 3+ story home?! We Love that it comfortably accommodates 12+ adults (or combo of multiple ages) in "private apartments" on 3 floors, yet has spacious room to bring 40+ people together on the main floor to celebrate my 90 year old Mother last year (which included Harry and Sally for you locals that know great musicians!)! You can't help but feel first class when you arrive and move in for your stay!

The jacuzzi worked just fine....The hot water and water pressure were more than sufficient for our 10-12 adults...So grateful for the new adjustable shower head in the main floor bathroom, AND the awesome new front loading large capacity washer and dryer!

The house is lovingly cleaned and cared for by a team of professional cleaners (who wipe out all traces of previous, less appreciative renters...)

AND the owners have always been immediately responsive to texts or calls (even when out of state for extreme family emergency), going so far as allowing us access to owner closets for additional provisions and always desiring our stay is top notch.

If you can't enjoy, refresh and renew with your stay here, I am sad for you....But happy for me since I get to keep it my Happy Go-To place every year! Soooo many thanks to Chris and Dick Modie
