Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

I recently spent the month of February at Seaside Escape with my dogs.

We were more than pleased with everything!!

The unit was very comfortable , clean and inviting. Everything that we needed was

provided. The large deck and fenced yard was perfect for the dogs and made life much easier

for us all. The decor was very attractive and homey.

The beach is around the corner from the property and very quiet being there is no direct beach parking in the neighborhood. There you can walk for miles collecting shells and shark teeth or just sit back in the sunshine and enjoy a book.

I rented a bike and there are many trails nearby both in Fort Clinch State Park and the Greenway

Everything you need is within 15 minutes from the house. The beautiful historic downtown has a wide assortment of shopping and good cuisine. Your markets and box stores are also within a short drive. Really no reason to even leave the island itself.

If golf is your game there are multiple courses to choose from nearby. Want to get creative?

Many of the local artists offer lessons in a wide range of mediums.

Anything you need, Faith who manages the units is wonderful and quickly there to take care of it. Lynn and Steve are also more than accommodating and welcoming to attend to your concerns and making your stay a positive experience.

I will be back next year sleeping to the sound of the surf...

Great duplex rental!

  • 5 of 5

The house was attractive, true to the pictures on the listing, with all the technology and comforts of home. The walk to the beach was an easy one and felt almost private on our off-season visit.

Great Home

Best location on the island. Home is located on the north end of the island which is more private. My wife and i Loved the privacy and location. We will stay again

Cozy with lots of extra touches

  • 5 of 5

We were a bit apprehensive when we arrived - not much curb appeal with overgrown front plantings and lawn in need of mowing - but the interior was excellently done with lots of extra touches for humans and their pets. We loved being a short walk from the beach, and the north end of Amelia Island in late August is uncrowded. We felt as if we had our own private beach. It was a perfect stay for us - and will be for many others in the future.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay with us! Our yard person disappeared and did not tell us he was going and we have not been able to contact him. So, we are in the process of finding a new yard service. We went to the beach house and planted some new plants and flowers so it looks much better! Come back to Seaside Escape soon! Steve and Lynn
