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 many years we have owned our beach home has brought blessings to us through the years... grandsons and nephews and now great nephew spending countless hours on the beach, collection sea shells,Crab hunting at night, Shrimp Festival activities, The Christmas Ship at the Ritz and one of them even learned to walk here in our home who is now Receiving his Eagle Scout this year...Watching Barney and Tellatubbies to Bob The Builder our home has been a treasure trove of memories and now it is time for your to make some memories of your own.. 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).

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.

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.

We fell in love with it the minute we walked in the door. The perfect beach house for us!

  • 5 of 5

The bright green newly painted outside with the new blue shutters was wonderful. The beach house was spotless, linens excellent and decorated perfect. We really enjoyed the large deck overlooking the ocean, it was so relaxing. The location is close to downtown, which has many excellent place to eat and wonderful stores for shopping. This is a place my family wants to return to year after year. Also, I love being able to take my furry babies with me. They totally enjoyed the large deck. As a watercolor artist, this place had everything I needed to inspire me.

Loved the location and peaceful overlook from the deck. Had issues with dryer and received immediate response from Lynn. Can’t get any closer to the beach! Hope to visit again when we get back Amelia Island.

Great location, some disappointments

  • 3 of 5

The location of this beach house was wonderful - literally right on a huge expanse of uncrowded beach, and easy driving distance to stores & restaurants & golf. We also so appreciated being able to have our dog; he loved walks along the shoreline. I’m a bit perplexed by the 5-star reviews; we must all have different standards & expectations. One very negative review was harshly stated and not terribly constructive; however, I do agree with some of that reviewer’s observations. We’ve rented at least 10 homes through VRBO in various parts of the country over the past 15 years - most end up being basically what we hoped and expected. I have also owned two waterfront rental properties (one on Lake Michigan) so I can empathize with maintaining a house that gets a lot of use and abuse. After a 3-day drive, we were very disheartened when we drove up to this property; its tired appearance was, unfortunately, made even more obvious because it’s between two beautifully renovated homes. Inside, the owners have made it cute and beachy, and it was clean, but so many things were in various states of disrepair that it felt somewhat rundown. From the loose spindle & peeling paint on the front steps to the loose doorknob & deadbolt on the front door, to the chipped trim paint throughout the house & the missing counter tile in the kitchen & the badly water-damaged ceiling, we were terribly disappointed in the overall ambiance - especially since many of the maintenance items would have been very quick & easy fixes. (It was tempting to run to Lowe’s and buy what was needed to make some of the repairs ourselves.) We had a nice vacation, but it was an expensive rental, and the house fell short of expectations (especially when our next VRBO experience just a day later in upscale Hilton Head Island was in a dog-friendly home that was much larger, perfectly maintained, and cost less per night). We also had some frustrations with communicating with the owners; 2 phone calls were not returned, and replies to my emails took up to 2 days. Regardless, this rental is on a wonderful beach, had nice linens and was clean; notwithstanding the ceiling damage (which I know is not a cheap or easy fix), I hope my comments will be taken as constructive suggestions to make some simple and relatively inexpensive repairs so the house is the very best it can be and worth the premium price.

Owner's Response: We inspect the house weekly, however may miss something like a loose bolt. The home does not look tired as we have just last month replaced the entire outside walls and painted every wall. Our purpose is to present a Jimmy Buffet motif, not a new contemporary house. We chose not to paint the front steps due to it being the most trafficked outside part of the house. The steps are safe and secure and that one little spindle has been replaced. There was never a danger. The ceiling has been repaired, not replaced but will be after the summer guests leave. It's solid and has nothing to do with the large living room comfort or how sound one sleeps. We haven't increased rates in 3 years and are in line with all rentals. Amelia Island is NOT Hilton Head, the rates are not the same. HH has more pine trees than Palm trees and homes are set back farther from the beach. Lynn and I leave our cell phones on until 6 pm daily and we assure everyone that if a call is missed it will show up on the phone LED. We're not a motel with phone service around the clock. If you want to speak with us about this review please all us and take a look all the reviews, you'll find very, very few negative ones. We have always been dog friendly and always will. We won't address the minute stuff, but assure you and your family you'll have a great place to stay. So...Fins to the Right, Fins to the Left. Blessings!

Owner's Response: The for sale sign was up one day only. The realtor who stopped by did not ask our permission and was in violation of Real Estate Rules and we addressed it. Gosh, we bought expensive Bahama shutters due to the previous two hurricanes blowing the originals off in order to give the guests in the two front bedrooms more shade and to enhance and compliment the outside new paint job. This was a plus, not something meant to aggravate guests. At the same time we ordered a very expensive in door retractable blind to block the sun coming into the house...this too was done for comfort for our guests. As you may know, when you order a product from a manufacturer you cannot guarantee when it will be delivered. It took two months to receive all custom made shutters and blinds and the day of arrival was the day of our guests arriving. This guests did We also cannot predict when an appliance will default. We had the dryer's motor replaced as soon as it was possible. We always ask the guests to let us know if anything needs to be done. This is the first we've heard of anything and will be glad to send $ to pay for the dryer not working. Thank you!

The house has a perfect view of the ocean and so easy to get to the beach. Deck is great.

  • 5 of 5

Lyn and Jerry are super great and really care about their renters. We have rented from them for three years and have not been disappointed. The house is perfect for us. We love Amelia Island. The location is close to everything. Well stocked kitchen. Peaceful too. Dottie and Dennis Feest
