Piney Island is in an AE Flood Zone. I've never seen major floor damage here. During really high tides the water does come up high between Little Piney and Big Piney Island. You would need flood insurance with any federally insured loan, however I would always recommend flood insurance in any zone. I would estimate the flood insurance to run $500-800 per year. It will be based on the elevation of the property when surveyed.
Hope this helps....

Hi Traci,

We enjoy all cellular services on the Island, however, my experience gives AT&T 5 gold stars for service coverage and minimal dropped calls.

Thank you for asking. If you are in the market for a home, please do not hesitate to call me at 904-557-8123, or access my website at

Best regards,

You may be within the area affected by the Red Tile plume.
Red Tide has been known to make beach areas a bit unpleasant.

Best of success to you,

I have .883-acre lot 1/4 mile from the Atlantic Ocean in Fernandina Beach, Florida (32034). This is Amelia Island, "destination" for athletes, movie stars (John Travolta), music stars (the late Michael Jackson), all sorts of famous people who want their privacy but in a lush setting.

My lot is not on the Amelia Island Plantation, but is less than 10 minutes from the quaint historic section that makes Fernandina Beach so unique. The property abuts Fort Clinch State Park, and is at the dead-end of W. 5th Street. No close neighbors, no grass to mow, sand dunes and oak trees.

Our former family home is still there and is rented by a stable tenant for $1200 a month. The house would sell "as is." The property itself could accommodate 6-8 condos for future investment.

If you like the ocean, woods, privacy, woodland creatures--this place is for you. This has been for sale for $1.4 million because of the future potential, but I am willing to accept $500,000 in this down market.

Contact me in Richmond, VA, (804) 427-5245 or

Hi Debi,

Hope you're one of our neighbors by now! We think Fernandina Beach and the Amelia Island area is the nation's best kept secret. The people are the friendliest folks I've ever met, it's quiet, and we have a unique and fun culture - where else can you go where you run into pirate embassadors on a regular basis? We love it. Cheers!

Correction in Trulia or MLS? Make the change with customer service and make the correction in the MLS. The MLS is where everything loads from and too.
