Friends invited us to join them for a week at Beach Axis. We played golf (attractive 27 hole public course) walked the beach (right across the street) strolled the downtown of Fernandina and enjoyed a variety of local restaurants from good wine & tapas at España (definitely a great dinner) to a fun breakfast at T-Rays (lots of memorabilia to enjoy in this tiny place), with a slice of local life at the farmer's market. A short ferry ride to historic Mayport (read the historical plaque) offered a nice fish house restaurant and store which is worth the visit, plus it's a beautiful drive to get there. A nice getaway for us from Virginia.
The house offered 3 large bedrooms with private baths, comfortable living room and a large dining table off the full kitchen. Good for a family or friends. Well located for easy access to everything. We enjoyed it.
To start, this is a big and comfortable house where the three upstairs bedrooms are all roomy and comfortable with own baths. The owners are nearby and willing to help with any problems plus will offer advice on all island attractions. We really enjoyed our short ferry ride to Mayport where we had a great seafood lunch and then bought fresh fish at the onsite market to cook back at the rental. The rental is conveniently located across the street from the beach - a short 3 minute walk over the dunes to a long and sandy beach. You are also a 5 minute drive to a challenging public golf course...and a quick 10 minute drive to downtown Fernandina Beach with several wonderful restaurants and lovely shops... including a Saturday morning farmer's market (starts at 10 pm) with local produce, seafood and handmade goodies. We'd certainly stay here again!
This rental was very nicely furnished and impeccably clean. The unit was completely stocked with bed linens, bath towels, kitchen soap and even TP and sample size toiletries. The location is just across the street from a public beach access, and at this point on the island being across the street is just as good as being on the beach side of the road. Beach was clean and uncrowded, and there is a lifeguard right at this access point. Well worth the money! We'll be back!
This beautiful, bright and spacious home truly feels like home away from home with all the amenities one would need. The patio area is a wonderful spot to relax with a cup of coffee or have a glass of wine in the evening. The beach is literally a few steps away. I loved the fact there is a convenience store also a few steps away with a decent wine selection. Truly a perfect home for a girls get away or for a family vacation.
I selfishly did not want to write a review, as I want to keep this property secret (for availability purposes). However, this property is quite amazing. You do not need to bring anything, but your swimsuit and a wonderful attitude. Fully stocked. The pictures does not do this property justice. The rooms are spacious and well decorated. Every portion of this rental is clean and felt like home. Less than 7 minutes from everything and seconds away from the beach. I am looking forward to returning here. Simply put...this is an absolutely wonderful rental. Also, check-in/check-out was an absolute breeze. I only wish that check-in/check-out time were earlier and later. What an amazing rental. Thank you.

Lovely management, well appointed, comfy beds, directly across from the beach access (no view, if that matters to you)
This was a great experience for my family. We love Fernandina Beach, and Beach Axis was a great stay.
