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.

A lovely house right off the beach!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this HUGE house, which had plenty of space for all 13 of us. Perfect access straight to the beach (our favorite part, of course). The only downside was the jacuzzi tub wasn't working, but everything else was great! Fernandina Beach is our favorite place to vacation, and we will definitely be back!

Beautiful house

  • 4 of 5

Overall we loved our stay in the mermaid cottage. We loved the upper deck and easy access to the beach. This is great location between the Omni and Ritz but in a strange neighborhood. Half of the houses in the neighborhood look condemned?

I saw some reviews about the A/C after I had already booked the house and just hoped for the best. Chris and Dick did add some window A/C units which helped but mid summer it was still pretty warm. The master bedroom is by far the best room with the most beautiful view for sunrise but there is barely any A/C in there and no window unit. So it gets hot in there during the day but isn't too bad at night.

The dishwasher we weren't able to use and the water pressure in the showers and sink were terrible. The master shower is beautiful with multiple shower heads (very cool) but without much water pressure it is kind of pointless.

Anyway, we loved the house and the convenient walk to the beach and easy access to drive trucks on beach too was great. The owners were extremely helpful and kind. We love Amelia island and this is the cutest house. The Windows and roof deck give the perfect view for sunrise and storms in the ocean. We also were lucky enough to see a turtle hatching. Thank you Chris and Dick for sharing your home with us!

A/C issues

  • 3 of 5

Great location, well equipped kitchen. Air conditioning IS a problem, water pressure not great in baths. I did complain about the air conditioning, no response from owner. Bedroom on main floor has only a tub, no shower- so not a good bedroom for adults. Downstairs bedroom and second bedroom on third floor were HOT at night particularly.

Owner's Response: I can assure you that had we gotten a call we would have responded. This has been a ghastly hot summer and we did have multiple issues with the AC. It has been fully resolved. Also, the main level does have a hand shower in the tub.

Property was very nice; however, the ac froze up 3 straight days making it very uncomfortable.

  • 3 of 5

Because of the ac problem ( something that evidently had been a problem in the past, since there were instructions on how to handle it), I would not consider renting again. On 90+• weather, it takes a very long time to cool back down once the unit is turned off for an hour.

Also the freezer drawer on the main floor would not cool below 55 degrees, so we could not use as a freezer, but did use as as extra refrigerator space. This, in itself, was not a huge problem since the freezer drawer worked on the top floor.

Loved the spaciousness, but not the heat!

Owner's Response: It has been crazy hot here, hottest ever in the 20 years we have been here. We did encounter issues with the hvac system that we have resolved. We have 3 freezers, someone left the drawer freezer open which will cause it to freeze up. It is too bad that guests don't call when there are issues. We would have gotten them resolved ASAP.

  • 4 of 5

Overall it was wonderful. We enjoyed ourselves and the house is very cozy. The veiw of the beach is great. I do however recommend you bring fans cause the air conditioning it not so good. Others than the ac it was PERFECT.
