Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our week in this vacation home. You couldn't get any closer to the ocean. The house was clean and comfortable. We'd love to stay here again.

No stars. Terribly disappointed. We found this house dirty and run down.

  • 1 of 5

I have never written a bad review for Home Away; fortunately I’ve had a lot of great experiences with reputable owners concerned only with providing great service. But I hope that this review informs both the people who may want to stay at this property, as well as the home owners. Information is key to making good decisions, but the posting was deceptive, and, when confronted, the home owners continued to be neglectful, inconsiderate, and unwilling to negotiate. The property was billed as a perfect beach retreat, in fact, I believe the post stated that this property was NOT your typical tired beach house (in fact, it was the very definition of a tired beach house). I took plenty of pictures that I hope HomeAway will review. I feel very strongly that I was taken advantage of and I’d like a refund. I’m sorry to have to write this; it was my mom’s 85th Birthday and this beach retreat was her birthday present. I was embarrassed the moment we arrived and looked at the house. And when we opened the door and saw the damaged ceiling, the dirt and grime along every baseboard, the fogged sliding glass doors obstructing the view, the ripped screens, the ants in the kitchen, the mold on the bathroom ceiling, the deck in disrepair, and the spotty (at best) internet, it was everything I could do to remain calm and upbeat for my mom. We enjoyed the beach; we celebrated her birthday, but the house could have made this special occasion so much more special. This was an expensive house to rent; the home owners have an opportunity to work with me; I am willing and able to work with them. If that happens I will happily write another review reflecting their willingness to negotiate and make this right.

Owner's Response: We stand firmly on the reviews, of our guest for the past seven years. We have families who return yearly and are booked for next year. A decision regarding renting our home should be based on our past performance rather than the comments of this one review. The past seven years of reviews give an accurate account of our home and who we are as home owners. We are readily available to assist our guest in any way possible during their visit to our home. We live here which allows direct access to us rather than through a property manager. The Internet service is not spotty, the modem had to be replaced. We responded quickly and had service man replace the modem while this traveler was at our home. Storm damages are being completed within the next two weeks. It is unfortunate that such malice comments can be made by an individual against us and our home without the homeowners having the opportunity to respond to these threats as they came to us in texts from this travelor. Our reviews state it for us, we are very responsible and responsive to our guest. Allow us to provide a relaxing, safe home directly on the beach for your next vacation. .

Very nice house with a fantastic ocean view.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The house was very nice, met all of our needs and provided an unbeatable ocean view. We hope to rent this house again in the future. This is our second time renting from the Russells and both were pleasurable experiences.

Great house. Great view. Great owners.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this property for 7 years in a row. Owners are very attentive. Kitchen very well equipped. Can't beat the views and access to the beach. This is one of the best locations on Amelia Island--good proximity to downtown Fernandina.

Great property right on the beach

  • 5 of 5

We had another awesome vacation at 912 S Fletcher!. The house had everything we needed and was very comfortable. We spent many hours on the deck and enjoyed being so close to the ocean. Our grandsons had a great time fishing every day and then cooking their catch. We knew Lynn and Jerry would respond to our call if we needed anything at all. We pray we will be able to return next summer.

Fabulous Family Fourth of July!

  • 5 of 5

My family has been visiting Fernandina for over 25 years. I can honestly say that we enjoyed our week in your home more than any other place we have ever stayed! The location was convenient to everything and we loved being on the beach. The deck was our favorite part of the house! We started our days enjoying coffee and the ocean breeze and ended them lounging on the deck enjoying the beautiful night sky and listening to the waves. The only thing missing from this near-perfect house is an outdoor grill. Everything else we could possibly need was there. We can't wait to stay here again. We have found our home away from home!

Owner's Response: We are happy you guys enjoyed our home and cannot wait for your return. glad we were able to make your vacation more enjoyable. The grill is not provided because of insurance reasons .. but would be happy to help in any way we can.

About Lynn and Jerry Russell

My husband Jerry and our two babies Weezer and Lucky moved to Fernandina Beach about 12 years ago. We are members of First Baptist Church where I volunteer. We love living in the beautiful beach town of Fernandina Beach because you get that home town feeling here. My husband and I are both from the Middle Georgia area, he from McRae and I am from from Dudley. We cherish our memories growing up in small towns, so FB hits home with us. The town has so much to offer with historic down town and the fort as well as restaurants, shopping and all the walking and bike riding you can handle. It is a very pet friendly town, but more importantly it is a pet friendly beach. Weezer and Lucky look forward to their walks on the beach with all their pals, Hannah, Chloe, Casey, Jenna, Rosie and Tippy and all the rest of the beach gang.....

Why Lynn and Jerry Russell chose Amelia Island

The comfort, decor, large deck facing the ocean, plenty of parking space, large family room seems you're on a boat, near everything (shopping, golfing, movies, airport, restaurants, historic downtown, boat rentals, the Ritz, horseback riding, churches, hospital). Also, we, the owners live on the island for immediate needs.

What makes this house unique

PET FRIENDLY!!! Being on the beach, not across the street or a beyond the dunes, walk out and put your toes in the sand. Also watching the sun rise in the mornings... absolutely breathtaking....Please note limited basic cable.

Pets welcome with pet fee of $100 per pet with two pet maximum and twenty five pounds and under.
