Vacation in Florida

Featured in Coleman Concierge Blog


We are honored to be mentioned in Coleman Concierge’s blog post entitled “Concierge Guide to Northeast Florida’s Bike Trails and Cycling Routes” Ed and Jenn Coleman are travel and outdoor enthusiasts with a popular blog documenting their adventures and making helpful guides for other travelers. Here’s what they have to say about us:

“While researching this guide, we took a couple of days to explore Amelia Island. We stayed at the Sea Cottages of Amelia, a comfortable midrange option with all of the conveniences of a studio apartment. They are very bike friendly because you can park (and lock) your bikes onto your private patio.”

We encourage any guests with a passion for cycling to read through their blog post for some fantastic information about local trails, including detailed maps, exact route distances, and other recommendations about Amelia Island and Northeast Florida.

Thank you, Ed and Jenn for your visit! We are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay!

We especially love this quote: “We’re different from a hotel,” said Office Manager Betsy Reese. “It’s a comfy feeling, private, and we are close to the beach. And we are pet friendly.”

Designated by the Florida Green Lodging Program


The Sea Cottages of Amelia just earned a Designation from the Florida Green Lodging Program!

Launched in 2004, the Florida Green Lodging Program is an initiative of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) that designates and recognizes lodging facilities that make a voluntary commitment to conserve and protect Florida’s natural resources. The program’s environmental guidelines enable the hospitality industry to evaluate operations, set goals and take specific actions to continuously improve environmental performance.

The Sea Cottages were assessed and our score met the criteria for a One Palm designation. We will strive to earn even more Palms (bettering our score) by further committing to efforts to make the Sea Cottages as environmentally friendly as they can be by focusing on:

  1. Communication and education (customers, employees, public).
  2. Waste reduction, reuse and recycling.
  3. Water conservation.
  4. Energy efficiency.
  5. Indoor air quality

Thank you to the Florida Department of Environmental Protection!
