My husband & I stayed here on our second trip to Fernandina Beach. While the condo is "right across the street " you can't really " meander " down to the beach without effort. The condo is located on A1A highway which is one of the main roads into town. After crossing this road & walking down a bit, the closet public beach access is down a hill through a parking lot and then down a fairly long beach walk. Then through the sand and down to the beach. Unless you are in fairly good shape with very little to carry to the beach I would not recommend this walk. The deck is nice to sit on however the traffic is present since this is a main highway. The condo was clean however the master bed was really uncomfortable, very soft mattress (with each movement we woke each other up). The outside could definitely use some paint as the wood has never been painted & is quite rough & somewhat run down looking. The upper deck is nice but it is shared between the 4 units in the building so there are others using it at the same time. It was nice to have a washer & dryer & there is a second bedroom with twin beds but neither have TVs.
