Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Ocean Cay - Quintessential Beach Cottage

2 Bedroom / 2 Bathrooms Sleeps 4

With its proximity to the beach and newly remodeled interior, our charming beach cottage is sure to exceed every expectation. Guests often comment on how clean, beautiful, and well-equipped our home is. They also love that they can bring their pets!

If you would like to bring your pet please let us know your pet(s) breed, age, and weight. There is a $50 fee per pet. Also, we require your pet(s) to be on flea preventative and up to date on vaccinations.

One of the biggest perks of this rental is our proximity to the beach. We are located right across the street from beach access #10, a pristine strip of sand with plenty of places to swim, sunbathe, and play.

We've equipped the cottage with everything you might need for a relaxing day at the beach including coolers, beach chairs, body boards, and more. You can also explore the area by bike; two beach cruisers are included with your rental fee. If you're looking for restaurants, live music, or other entertainment, downtown Fernandina is a short 2 1/2 mile drive from the cottage.

Along with the easy beach access you get a stunning ocean view. You can see the water from the master bedroom and the large, gated deck. The deck has 2 Adirondack-style chairs and a patio set-the perfect place to dine alfresco or watch the day break. If you need to rinse off after the beach, the private outdoor shower is an unexpected luxury.

Inside, you'll find a lot to love. The cottage was recently remodeled, and everything is extremely new and clean. The kitchen has beautiful granite counter tops, a large pantry, and everything you need to prepare fabulous meals in the comfort of your very own beach cottage. The living area is equally inviting and includes a 42-inch flat screen TV, and a Blu-Ray/DVD player. You'll also find a washer and dryer in the pantry.

In the master bedroom, red accents pop against the neutral background for a playful yet sophisticated feel. It includes a brand-new king size bed, a flat screen TV, and an in-suite bathroom with a combined shower and tub. It's almost like staying in a boutique hotel. The quest bedroom has two twin-size beds, and a flat screen TV. It's the perfect place for your kids or guests. The second bathroom also has a combined shower and tub and is centrally located off the main hallway. The cottage includes free Wi-Fi and cable TV.

Demand is always high for this adorable vacation rental. Contact us today for more information or to reserve your dates! Our calendar is always up to date! Please check it for availability. Note: GA vs. FL weekend is a 4 night minimum stay (check-in Wed, check out Sun).

Our Resort Rental Dwelling Permit # is 3501.

About David and Jean Black

We recently purchased this lovely Beach Cottage. David and I have been vacationing on Amelia Island for over 25 years, and we are thrilled to have our own home here now. We love the area as there are so many fun things to do, and of course a beautiful beach is steps from our door.

David and Jean Black purchased this cottage in 2015

Why David and Jean Black chose Florida

We love this home because of the extremely close proximity to the beach, it's gorgeous decor, and well laid out floor plan. It has many nice amenities for you to enjoy. It is also conveniently located very close to the historic area, grocery stores, restaurants, and night life.

What makes this cottage unique

In addition to all our home's amenities, we also offer everything needed to enjoy Amelia Island like bikes, coolers, and beach gear.

Charming Place, only a few steps from beach!!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I were very pleased with this perfect rental place for us and her golden doodle puppy. Everything we needed was provided, and Jean made sure we were comfortable and answered all questions from time I contacted her initially until until we were on our way home. The location is perfect with a beautiful sunrise view of ocean from the cozy, comfortable front deck. And since the deck has a rail and is gated, our dog could enjoy being out there with us. We definitely want to return!

Terrific Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, our toddler, infant and dog stayed here and had a wonderful time! This house has everything you will need to enjoy the beach and was so ideal for our family vacation. We could be on the beach in under a minute and really enjoyed how private that section of beach was our entire stay. On the side of the house there is a great private outdoor shower area to get the sand off of everything which was very convenient! The decor was fresh and clean and the layout provided just the right amount of space to feel comfortable and stay organized. We will definitely be bringing our family back here and would recommend to friends. The only thing I did not find to my liking was that the master bedroom mattress is quite firm. I know this is a matter of preference so I didn't let it affect my rating, but thought it was at least worth mentioning. Thank you David and Jean for renting us your wonderful beach cottage, our stay at the beach was a perfect time!

Great place, perfect location and everything you need.

  • 5 of 5

The home was clean, and equipped with all things needed for a great beach holiday. We particularly liked the very efficient AC, which kept the place nice and cool during a hot spell. Plenty of parking too.

Access to the beach really is just across the road, and you feel like you have your own beach when you arrive after a few steps.

Jean was great and made sure we had all of the necessary information. Thanks for everything!

Beautiful house in greaat location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here in June for a week. We chose this property due to the fact that it was pet friendly and easy access to the beach. The house was very clean and comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you needed for a weeks stay. The front deck was enjoyed many mornings with a cup of coffee. Location was very close to some excellent restaurants, which Dave and Jean recommended. We have raved about this house to one of our neighbors. We will definitely be back in the future.

Wonderful cottage in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I definitely loved staying in this cottage. It was clean, well-maintained, and had excellent modern amenities. The cottage is very close to the beach. The owners were more than helpful with arranging our visit. We would recommend this cottage, and would like to stay there again in the future. Also, our little dog was welcomed there as well...added bonus.

Perfect Amelia Island get away.

  • 5 of 5

The long trip from Canada was soon forgotten once we stepped into this delightful cottage. It lacked nothing and was spotless when we walked in. We enjoyed having our morning and evening tea as well as our evening meals and a drink of wine on the front deck which was enclosed so that our Golden Doodle was safe to come out with us. The walk to the beach was no more than 2 minutes over the dunes, and the beach was dog friendly. The beach was almost felt like a private one so few people were on it. David and Jean were really good to work with and we will definitely be back to Amelia Island and this really comfortable and cozy cottage.
