SADLY RUN...I was treated with disrespect and contempt when trying to get issues addressed concerning my last stay. I have been a repeat customer and I was hoping that my grievances would be taken seriously...they were not only ignored they were thrown back in my face like the TV not working ants ..broken safe and missing clothes were seemingly my fault....Its truly sad to see a property run such ineptitude...they wouldn't even honor dropping the rates when the the rates dropped 3 days into out 8 day stay...They say they give breaks if you contact them directly but I was given a obviously high rate and told if I didn't like it on line...not smart...I will never darken their door step again and if you like dank ant infested units that have dog hair and dogs barking all day...then this is the place for think I'm nuts read the other reviews....

Cozy Cottage

Great location-close to gas stations, restaurants and shopping plazas.
Small parking area located on site along with laundry and shop.
Pathway leading to cottage provided ample lighting and exterior lights at night were bright enough to feel safe.
Room had a cozy feel and had amenities such as: mini kitchenette with microwave, coffee pot and refrigerator. Available to use if you wanted to store food, reheat food or make 6 cups of coffee. Also, cups and plates were available.
However, we couldn't use the coffee maker because dried grounds were on the heating element. No big deal, just went out instead.
There was also a mini heater, hair dryer, and TV. Lots of lighting throughout and some additional storage by the sofa, bed and in the bathroom.
Shower in bathroom was workable but doesn't offer alot of space.
Bedding was nice and appeared clean but I did find stains on the white blanket on bedding and dog hairs were found in the heavier blanket for bedding. Staff had a good attitude when I called (after regular check in hours) to report the stain and dog hairs found in blanket.
Was told and reassured linens were clean and dry cleaned daily.
She also offered to bring new blankets in the morning. Upon returning from our outing the next day, fresh blankets were on our bed.
Great response and prompt service.
Would certainly return again.

Needs improvement on cleanliness!!

Very unclean!! Hair all over sofa. Shower was very grimy. Dead roach, hair and spilled chocolate in refrigerator. Cabinets hadn’t been wiped down and had dry dripped juice down the front All of this after we were told the room “had just been cleaned.” We checked in and checked right out! No apologies or offer to make it right. They would not refund our entire reservation so we lost one night stay.

Bad air conditioning can ruin your stay.

We picked this place because it allowed dogs. It was clean but the air conditioners in our one bedroom unit worked against each other and we had a night of poor sleep due to no air conditioning. The instructions on how to use the A/C is not clear and when I called the emergency number, supposedly staffed 24 hours, no one answered. Very disappointed and to top it off they charged me an early check in fee that I did not use. Be careful booking here.

Clean, friendly staff, close to the beach and rest, and pet friendly! Highly recommend

Highly recommend Sea Cottages of Amelia Island!! We’ve stayed her at least 10 times. Pet friendly. Walking distance to the beach and several restaurants. Minutes from downtown. We love Sea Cottages of Amelia and our dog loves it too!! Very clean accommodations. Staff is friendly and courteous.
