Overview

About the property

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 North East 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.

Our Second but not final stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at this pet friendly cottage. We enjoy it thoroughly. The cottage is very comfortable—we love the artwork. The beach, just across the street, is beautiful and our dog loves it. The location is minutes away from downtown historic Fernandina, restaurants and Publix! Last but not least, the owners are so friendly and accomodating we are certain to stay again.

Very good place to stay for the money

  • 3 of 5

This little beach house was only a few steps from the beach and had its own boardwalk. The beach was private and very enjoyable.

The main reasons that I gave it only 3 stars was that there were some minor maintenance issues upon arrival. However, Jean was very receptive to the notification and suggestions. The kitchen was spectacular and provided plenty of room for cooking and eating. The King bed was the only thing that was uncomfortable for us, but some people like harder mattresses and it may not be an issue. We would definitely recommend this property and come back to stay in the future!

PERFECT !!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect, is the only way to describe 975 S. Fletcher Ave.This 2 bed/bath cottage is located at beach entrance #10 and across the road on a 25 foot walkway up a few steps over the manmade dune and you are on the beach. The beach is wide and has many tidal pools that are not deep and are great for small children and dogs to play in without getting whacked by large waves. With 6 foot tidal swings every day the beach has many shells, mostly scallops, oyster. Downtown has many shops with parking everywhere that will keep shopping adventures folks busy for days. There are several art shops with good works by local artist. Many, many places to eat so plan on having the great brown Atlantic shrimp wild caught at least 6 meals, (9 for me)

The house has easy parking for up 3 cars, and well decorated and appointed like a house in Coastal Living Magazine. House has a side area to wash the salt, sand/dog off even with some plastic chairs so you can sit to clean your fleet, WiFi is easy and fast and all the appliances are nearly new and work well, The house has tank less hot water so you don’t run out, just use one at time. The A/C is oversize and keeps the house super cool if you wish, it was in the 90s in September. There is a shed out back filled with all kinds of beach stuff. House has good locks so you don’t have to worry about your stuff. Beds are great and one of the sofas has passed the nap test. We will be back! Thanks The Lea's
