Love the house!! Very close to the beach. The side fenced in yard was great for our dogs. The space is larger than it looks in the pictures. We would definitely stay again!

Seaside Escape was the perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The house was everything we expected and more. The location is great, in a quiet part of Amelia and you can see the water from the unit. The place was well stocked and gave our kids plenty of room. We spent most of our time on the beach so the beach supplies and proximity to the water were perfect. We highly recommend it!

Cute home by beautiful quiet beach, very pet friendly!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at our Seaside Escape! The house is lovely and beautifully decorated, and had everything we needed. The owners were very helpful and responsive if we had any questions or problems, and when we did addressed it immediately. We were here with our 5 month old baby and dog, and the house was perfect for our family. There is a nice outdoor area for the dog to run around in, and it was so nice to let her out without a leash. The deck has beautiful ocean views. The beach is a very short walk from the house, and was beautiful, nice and quiet. Even though it was the week before memorial day there were very few people out there. They had plenty of beach accessories, and we took advantage of the carts and some of the chairs. Would definitely recommend this place!

Fun in the Sun

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I loved our stay at this property! It is bright, open, and clean. You can tell the owners put thought and care in not only the decor, but also in the stocking of everyday living items in the rental such as cookware and linens that help make vacationing easy and hassle-free. One of our favorite things about this rental was the deck! It’s a great place to relax and soak up the sun. You can even see the ocean off the left side of the deck. The rental is located very close to the beach! It is just a short walk around the corner and over the dune. This part of the beach is peaceful and pretty secluded. The outdoor shower at this property is so convenient after a day at the beach. Fort Clinch and the historic downtown area of Fernandina are within a short drive. The owners, Steve and Lynn, left us a binder full of very helpful information that included restaurant recommendations, so we enjoyed making short trips in to the downtown area to try out some of these places! We really enjoyed staying at this property and vacationing on Amelia Island!

Excellent Family Trip

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the Seaside Escape with my Husband, dog and young son. We had a wonderful time and loved the quite location. My son and dog don't have much of an attention span so it was wonderful to be such a short walk back and forth to the beach. The backyard is fully fenced so we were able to let our dog in and out through the back door which was very convenient. The condo was clean and well decorated with wonderful personal touches. We cooked several times and found all the dishes/pans/utensils we needed. The beds and linens were all very comfortable. My son discovered a draw filled with a few match box cars and it was definitely a high point in his trip! The location was wonderful for us very quite neighborhood located next to Fort Clinch. The beach was huge and not crowded in the least. The location allowed us to access the many playgrounds in the area, Fort Clinch and was only minutes away from downtown for dinner. The trip was very relaxing and I would be interested in staying again!
