2 bedroom, 1.5 bath townhome nestled among oak trees and a 5 minute walk to the beach! About The Shell Seekers Retreat: We love beachcombing, and find this location very peaceful - and thus the name 'The Shell Seekers Retreat' was born! The master bedroom has a queen sized bed, a spacious double closet, large dresser, and direct access to the bathroom. The second bedroom contains a full bed, with a smaller dresser and a large closet. Bathroom access is directly across the hall. With a microwave, countertop oven, coffee maker, pots, pans and dishes - we hope the kitchen has everything that you need. Laundry is available on the main level. Our home has Xfinity Blast high speed internet service and 100+ cable channels with Showtime. You can also use your Roku, Netflix or Hulu logins to watch...2 bedroom, 1.5 bath townhome nestled among oak trees and a 5 minute walk to the beach!

About the location: Forest Ridge Village is a very peaceful neighborhood with a pool, tennis courts and a lot green space. It's also just a short walk to 13 miles of white sandy beach. Amelia Island offers plenty of opportunities for bicycling, birdwatching, golf and fishing. The Egan's Creek Waterway is also a great place for a walk - we often see turtles, herons and alligators. At Fort Clinch State Park, you can step back into 1864 as soldiers reenact life during the Civil War. Fort Clinch also offers a six-mile multi-use trail, and 3 miles of shoreline - great for shelling and shark tooth hunting! Historic downtown Fernandina has Victorian-era architecture, a multitude of shops and every kind of restaurant that you can imagine. Enjoy some local shrimp, go on a river cruise, or just stroll with an ice cream cone and enjoy island life!More
