About this listing
Discover true Southern hospitality in our spacious cypress home. Its unique character comes from a combination of old Florida style and contemporary design. We built it ourselves and love to share it with our guests.
Bedroom with a nautical theme with boating photos and sea shells in a light and bright room with ceiling fan. Queen size bed.
Relax in a comfortable upstairs suite with a queen size bed, sitting area, and a private bath with walk-in shower.
The balcony sitting area offers a unique view of the high wooden beamed ceiling and decorative wrought iron balustrade. A Florida-style verandah with rocking chairs, wicker furniture and a hammock in its private nook calls you to slow down after your day at the beach, golf course or sightseeing on the island.
Guests have access to the balcony sitting area, the front wrap-around verandah and the sunny back deck, and the kitchen. Bikes are available. For larger groups, additional bed space is available.
We have bikes you can use to ride the Amelia Island Trail. The recently completed trail is a 6.2 mile off-road paved trail on Amelia Island’s southend that runs along sections of the island’s largest resorts, Summer Beach and Amelia Island Plantation. The trail runs between the Nassau Sound bridge at Amelia Island State Park all the way to Peter’s Point Park beach access and past the Amelia Island Ritz-Carlton and Golf Club of Amelia and along Amelia Island Parkway.
The workout room with weight lifting equipment is available, if the bonus room isn't booked by someone else.
