Even better than the photos

  • 5 of 5

We loved this little beach house! The photos made it look nice, but actually being there made it so much better! Everything felt warm, cozy, and homey. It was a peaceful location and the house was furnished with everything we needed. I would come back anytime!

Cute little place, easy beach access!

  • 4 of 5

Lovely duplex, clean, cute! Especially appreciated the extras you don't always find - plenty of spices and pantry items, dishwasher soap, solo cups, step-stool for kids, beach chairs and toys, and a sweet doggie basket full of treats, bowls and toys. Patio was lovely, though the upper unit deck gets the sun and ocean view. In a very quiet neighborhood which was nice. We forgot a deck of cards and wished we found one there. Overall a really nice stay.

*Nothing to do with the rental itself but beware the off-season dredging of the beach. A neighbor told us it happens nearly every off-season and we happened to be there for it this time. Our beach access was closed for the last 2 days of our stay and the construction (which is 24/7) is pretty loud. Kids kinda liked watching it though!

Peaceful, Easy Feeling

  • 5 of 5

I guess most people who book this property are looking forward to a lovely beach vacation. For me that wasn't the case. While visiting in NC I broke my foot. With my dog in tow I needed to find a place to stay near Jacksonville since I was going to Mayo Clinic of Fl for a consultation. To further complicate matters I had to enlist a friend to drive me who could not find a last minute sitter for her dog. After reviewing all the hotels in the area I decided to try VRBO and found the Heller's property. I felt it would be a nice place, I wanted something nice for my friend since she was doing so much for me. It did not disappoint. The property was lovely, clean and had everything you could need. We could hear the surf from the back porch and laughed about the "good ole days" on coastal North Carolina. The dogs loved it. There is a large fenced lot attached that the dogs "patrolled" for wayward squirrels and lizards. It was so relaxing for me after days in a hotel trying to walk a dog hopping on one foot! The neighborhood is quiet (this was in January) and appears to be totally safe. I ended up having surgery and hope to visit again in February when I go back for my check up. Loved it!

Ammenities were good. Convenient to the beach. Pet friendly is why we booked this home.

  • 4 of 5

Everything we needed was in the house. House was clean. Beach access was convenient and private. Hard to sleep with people above us. We could hear every footstep they made and every time they moved something. Quiet neighborhood, but far from food and attractions. Liked the fenced in side yard for my fur babies. Didn't have to put them on a leash to take them outside.

Great weekend at the Seaside Escape!

  • 5 of 5

This house is a duplex with an upper and lower unit. We had the pleasure of staying in the lower unit with our infant son the weekend of the Amelia Island Concours D'Elegance. The unit was wonderful! It was clean, well equipped, and had very tasteful seaside themed decor. The owners were wonderful to communicate with and sent us a detailed packet of information that included restaurant recommendations, etc. The location was spectacular! Just steps from the beach and a short drive to downtown Fernandina Beach, which was very charming! The car show (15 minutes away at the Ritz Carlton) was phenomenal and we would definitely stay here again when our travels bring us back to Amelia Island!
