Description from owner

Amelia Island, Florida's First Coast world class family resort destination, and the location of historic Fernandina Beach, provide the peaceful setting for a quaint oceanfront residential enclave, the site of Crump SandCastle.

Standing tall over the sand dunes at surfside, a massively timbered, two story colonnade frames ever-changing views of sand and sea from a sprawling, elevated screened veranda.

For relaxed entertaining, glass walls open to join the casual elegance of spacious, informal interiors, to the veranda and sundecks. Four bedroom suites, each with private bath, offer gracious comfort and privacy for family and friends. A third floor sleeping loft opens to a rooftop sun deck and a breathtaking, "bird's eye" panorama of the beach and ocean below. The full complement of luxurious amenities assures fond memories of your carefree vacation at

Crump SandCastle. We are now in our sixteenth year! Free high speed internet (DSL).

“Great accomodations!”

Reviewed 6 Sep 2016

This was an excellent accommodation for four couples to relax and catch up. Easy access to beach steps away, easy access to old Fernandina for dinner and shopping. The home was immaculately clean, comfortable, and had all necessary amenities for a long holiday weekend. Thank You John Crump and Jan McCarthy for a terrific experience.

Reviewed 31 Aug 2016

We loved our stay here - the house was perfect for our group of 6 friends! Right on the beach, and the screened porch was our favorite gathering spot. Upstairs balcony was the perfect spot for stargazing. The home was clean, bedding comfortable and every room had a ceiling fan. Fernandina's beach was uncrowded and clean. The downtown area has darling shops and there are many good restaurants! We will be back! Downsides: wifi and cell service were difficult at the home; beach chairs & umbrellas could use an upgrade.

“Beautiful home, great views”

Reviewed 9 Aug 2016

Crump Sand Castle is a beautifully decorated and well kept house. From almost every room you can enjoy beautiful views at the ocean. The house offers a lot of amenities and enough space for sharing relaxed vacations with family and friends. We especially loved the evening hours at the porch the kitchen / living room area. The location is perfect - the beach just a couple of steps away, a very quiet neighborhood and yet only few driving minutes away from Fort Clinch State Park or some nice bars and restaurants. We would definitely love to come back again.

“Best vacation home ever !!!!”

Reviewed 19 Jun 2016

My husband and I took our family to Crump's Sandcastle for a week. It was the best vacation rental ever ! The screened porch facing the beach is ideal for kids to play, or your morning coffee, or a drink in the swings while watching the sunset. The four bedrooms had great, comfortable mattresses and each bedroom has its own bathroom. Two king beds, four double beds, and three twin beds in the playroom give you enough room to spread out !! We enjoyed the roof top porch, the two decks off the king bedrooms, and the huge screened porch. The kitchen is well equipped and the storage room has all you need for the beach ! Books, toys, videos, and games galore, so you don't have to take all that stuff ! Covered parking for three cars, an outside shower, and a play area under the house just added more to this perfect beach house. Beachfront views from the living area, screened porch, two king bedrooms, and upstairs playroom make it ideal even if it rains ! Close to the Pirates Playground and downtown. Uncrowded beach area. Gorgeous views. Fabulous house. Very nice management.

Wonderful time and a great place to gather for a week long vacation with family. Would recommend to other large families. The beds need an upgrade to Queens in the 2 downstairs bedrooms that are non master bedrooms. Management was excellent and attentive to our needs. Thank you, Joanna

“Great place for large family gatherings!”

Reviewed 19 Oct 2015

Crump Sandcastle was the perfect option for our family to celebrate our parents' wedding anniversary. With lots of beds and private bathrooms, it was ideal. And the North Beach area was quiet and exactly what we wanted. The screened porch was enjoyed by all and the views can't be beat. All in all--- a perfect place for a larger family gathering.

“Our home away from home”

Reviewed 2 Aug 2015

This was our second visit to Crumps Sandcastle and we loved it again. It is the perfect spot for our family. A few things need to be addressed. The most bothersome being the noise from the air conditioner in the back bedroom. Different people have stayed in that room both times and all agree that you have to have earplugs to be able to sleep. Wish something could be done about that. We had 2 pre teen boys in the loft and they never indicated the noise up there was an issue. (but they would sleep thru a dynamite blast) We love the location and the uncrowded beach. We hope to be able to return.

“Wonderful Sandcastle”
