Overview

About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 5 Sleeps

Light and bright beach cottage on the ocean! This 2 BR, 1BA beach cottage is perfect for a couple looking to enjoy a quiet oceanfront retreat. Casual and cozy, it is decorated with ocean blues and beach themes throughout. Located on the quiet northern end of Amelia Island in the quaint historic town of Fernandina Beach, the cottage sits up on stilts with a huge deck overlooking the pristine waters of the Atlantic Ocean. The only thing separating you from the water is a sandy one-way road that is used to access this and the surrounding beach cottages. Escape from the cookie-cutter resorts at the south end of Amelia and enjoy the beach with the locals. Relax, knowing that there is no driving on the beach here and the City of Fernandina Beach lifeguards are on duty during the summer season.

About Kim Page

I have lived in Fernandina Beach for over 40 years and have seen it grow from a sleepy shrimping village to a world-renowned resort area. Fortunately, the northern end of Amelia Island has retained its history and charm. Although I have traveled extensively, there is no place that I would rather call home.

Kim Page purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Kim Page chose Amelia Island

Kim's Cottage is located on the northern end of the island, one block from "Main Beach" and its playground and green spaces. There are lifeguards present from May through Labor Day. Centre Street and historic downtown Fernandina Beach as well as Fort Clinch and several parks and playgrounds are all a few minutes walk away.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage is a stand alone house and not a condo, so you don't have to worry about noisy neighbors or elevators around you. It is quaint, beautifully decorated and clean. You can sit on the deck and watch the beachgoers by day and the stars and lights on the shrimp boats by night. It is the perfect getaway for a couple or a small family.

Cozy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Kim's cottage is very cozy and quaint. It is very clean and brightly decorated. Our kids loved the bunk beds and the kid friendly atmosphere in "their" bedroom. What a bargain of a deal right there on the beach! Gorgeous views. This cottage has everything you need in the kitchen! Great communication with the owner too. Thanks Kim for making our very first trip to Fernandina memorable!
