Pictures don't do these cottages justice. This has been a private family vacation compound for four generations. We have been entrusted to manage this property by the multi-decade relationship we have with the family. There are three individual one-bedroom/one-bathroom units in this compound. They share a common courtyard in the back. This makes for complete privacy for each party, and a wonderful shared protected outdoor space for groups or gatherings.
“This was our second time staying here. We love the location, and that just across a sand dune lies the Atlantic Ocean. The place is spacious and the kitchen open and welcoming. It definitely has the old Florida vibe we gravitate to. Staying here is relaxing and easy. Exceptional value for the money. Having old town Fernandina just a few miles away is another reason we will always return here. Great restaurants, shops and the simple natural beauty of the area is our idea of vacating. We rent bicycles and ride around town and on the beach to collect shells and sand dollars. The little sand road that the cottage sits on is fun to walk the dog on, or ride the bicycle to a different beach entrance when we want. We will come back here again and again.”
Welcome to Murree's Porch, a charming garden apartment in the heart of Historic Fernandina Beach. You'll be steps away from Amelia Island's best shopping, award-winning restaurants, and nightlife; and only a 5 minute drive from beautiful beaches and state parks where you can experience the Real Florida. This beautiful, newly renovated apartment offers amenities such as a kitchenette, with a full size refrigerator, gas stove, china, silverware, and glassware.
“This was my 3rd time visiting and it's always a pleasure. The location is absolutely perfect being downtown and walking distance to everything. The beach is an easy 4 minute drive but is a nice bike ride as well. Mark and Cheryl will always respond to any questions or requests super quickly. They will always give you your privacy if that is what you desire. Mauree is just a whistle away! This is my go to quick trip and you will not regret renting.”
*COVID-19 UPDATE - Along with deep cleaning between stays, we are providing extra cleaning supplies and disinfectants for our guests to use during their stay.* The Wrenn Nest is located in the heart of Amelia Island, only steps to the beach. Close to beachside restaurants and less than 5 miles to the heart of Historic Downtown Fernandina Beach. Back patio and deck offer peek-a-boo views of the Atlantic ocean. Public beach access is less than a block away.
“This is a great location, across the street (5 minute walk) from the beach access. Two bedrooms and one shared bath with kitchen/living room, a two-person table and two person bar seating. There is an outdoor table and chairs on the back deck, but the chairs are very low for the tall table. It’s fine for enjoying a cocktail but not for eating. There is an additional outdoor table and chairs behind the house. The outdoor washing machine/dryer is in a shed and is shared with the front (street side) neighbor. Beach chairs were available in the shed. Ample supply of towels, sheets, beach towels. Note: No pot holders or kitchen hand towels. Toilet paper, paper towels and dish/dw soap was provided. There is a coffee maker and blender, no tea kettle. Enough Serving dishes/coffee mugs for 4 ppl. Several serving dishes and older pots/pans. Beds have comfortable mattresses, blankets, pillows and sheets. Bathroom has a big walk-in shower (no tub). The property manager was very responsive to our questions and quickly resolved the issues we had with loss of internet connection and power to the laundry room. We’d love to come back and enjoy this lovely home.”
