Overview

About the property

Historic 2 story home, 4 bedrooms,2 1/2 bathrooms, large deck overlooking ocean

This is the perfect place for families to come together and enjoy the beach!

The house sits on a double lot with car access on one side and beach access on the other side - how perfect is that! No worries about parking lots of cars, boats or RV - there is room to spare.

This house was built by Walter Lang in the 1930's and is one of only 2 houses still remaining from that era. It has been remodeled over the years and has recently had a face lift with some updating and decorating, but you still get the atmosphere of the bygone days.

The 2nd floor is light and bright with an airy kitchen with lots of cabinets and storage space and a round table for quick breakfasts when you don't feel like using the dining area. The laundry room with washer/dryer and a second refrigerator is located just off the kitchen.

The living/ dining area is very large and spacious with some of the old wood paneling still in evidence coupled with freshly painted walls in beach blues. There are window on three sides of the living/dining area so it is light and bright with a wonderful ocean view.

Lots of comfy sofas and chairs decorate the living space plus a 55 inch flat screen TV with DVD player.

There is a dining area with a large table that can easily seat 8 people - maybe more if you squeeze in - just the perfect spot for a big family celebration.

There are 2 bedrooms also on this floor - one is a room with 2 twin beds and the other bedroom is a queen which connects to a newly remodelled bathroom with tub/shower combo, double vanity and toilet.. This bathroom can also be accessed from the kitchen area.

On the north side of the living room is a wonderful large deck with sofas and chairs to sit back and enjoy your morning coffee - or evening cocktail. The late afternoon breezes make this the perfect spot to curl up with a good book - this is what vacation is all about!

Downstairs are 2 additional bedrooms - one is a queen and the other is a king and it has a 32 inch flat screen TV. There is also an area at the foot of the stairs with a couple more twin beds - and while not super private, the kids won't mind sleeping here. All the rooms have been freshly painted and while still rustic and quaint, they are bright and cheery.

There is a tiny bathroom under the stairs with toilet and small vanity, and there is an additional small bathroom on this floor with a walk in shower, vanity and toilet.

And best of all on this level is a large bonus room - the perfect place for the kids to hang out, watch a movie on yet another 55 inch flat screen - or play cards, do puzzles etc.

They even have their own full size refrigerator to stock with coke etc - and their own microwave to get that popcorn and pizza sizzling.

The house is located across a public sand road from the beach - just steps to the beach walkover - and paradise! In the summer months you can enjoy the beautiful Atlantic Ocean almost in your back yard and in the winter months you can look as far as the eye can see up and down the beach - and you will not see another soul!

There is an outside shower to get that sand off before entering the house - or hose off the pets - another added bonus, as the house is pet friendly!

We are sure you will fall in love with this beach house - you will enjoy the quaintness and old world atmosphere of an earlier era - while still enjoying the comforts of modern day living - like Wifi, central heat and air and ceiling fans.

family fun!

  • 5 of 5

our family of 6, along with our 4-legged family members, had an AWESOME week in this timeless florida beach home! it was rustic, but clean, comfortable, and had everything we needed for a fun week: appliances, pots & pans, dishes, beach chairs, puzzles, room to congregate, room to spread out, comfy deck chairs for morning coffee, plenty of parking space, proximity to fort clinch, easy drive to downtown, and so much more! rhona was attentive to emails, our needs, and returning our deposit. highly recommend and hope to return!

Loved our time here!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of ladies came for our yearly getting away. We had a wonderful time! The house was very clean. We had to call about the toilets and the smell downstairs. Rhonda sent someone quickly to fix the toilets. She also brought an air purifier to help with the mildew smell. Rhonda was wonderful to work with.

There are often issues that we cannot foresee, but thankfully we took care of them quickly and I am glad the air purifier helped you all!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is nicely decorated and has everything needed for a stay at the beach. Great view of the ocean and the pool and both are easily accessible. The master bedroom opens up to the balcony. Condo complex is also very nice. Seafood restaurant Would recommend this condo for a great stay at the beach.

An older style true beach house with character!

  • 5 of 5

We were in Fernandina for a rehearsal dinner Friday & my son's wedding on Saturday, so needless to say, I had a lot on my mind. Rhona made rental of this property so easy and I really appreciate her kindness. We really enjoyed the house and our stay!

Awesome Place

  • 5 of 5

Although the house is older, it is well-kept and clean with plenty of space to spread out. It has a lot of character. The view of the ocean from the living room windows and side deck is great. You can even hear the waves breaking at night when it is quiet in the house. The location is perfect - about a 5 minute drive to historic downtown and within 10 minutes of restaurants and grocery stores. The entrance to Fort Clinch State Park is right next to the road that goes to the house. The beach access is very close. I was able to bring my dog who enjoyed the house and beach as well. My mom enjoyed time on the deck. Rhona was great to work with and quick to respond to my questions. We are already talking about booking another stay in the future.
