About Us

We are a group of Fernandina Beach residents managing  rental properties in the Amelia Island area. Our group offers beach vacation opportunities year around with premier guest amenities and seasonal rates.

Three former airline employees who have traveled the world, upon retiring and with husbands in tow, landed here in Fernandina Beach. After a few years of enjoying Amelia Island and surrounding area, we co founded Sand Dollar Vacation Rentals LLC..

Each of us currently own and manage our own personal rental properties .and when presented with an opportunity to oversee rentals for a group of condominiums here on our beloved Island, we jumped. Merging our combined travel and property management experiences, we are poised and ready to create fun filled beach vacations.

Though beginning our journey with rental property management, our dream is to provide more than a “room to sleep”. Our passion for this Island runs deep as is our desire to share the fun times to be had.


Meet the team:

BJ Morris – Georgia born and raised, she and her husband Tony currently live in Sand Dollar Villas, however are building their forever home on the beach, aptly named “SandTorini”.  Most recognizable by the Grecian Blue dome topping the elevator to their top floor deck.  Probably the best “joiner”, BJ never meets a stranger and is our best event planner.  Her organization and creative skills go unmatched. You can find BJ and her little dog Lucy walking the beaches at sunrise nearly every single morning.

Pat Cole – New York Pat and her husband Steve currently live on S. Fletcher in their ocean view property which also includes their  5-star Airbnb rental property, “Under the Boardwalk”.  Though retired, Pat is our hardest worker bringing her sparkling smile and a gazillion good ideas.  With her attention to detail, she will make sure we are successful.

Terri Nichols Colonna – Love of the north east Florida culture brought this Kansas born girl and her Argentine husband to Fernandina Beach in 2014 following her retirement. Grilling for large groups on their oversized Argentine Grill fills their time. With an extended family that includes 5 grandchildren, their home on Robert Oliver is typically full of friends and family.  Look for her Octopus Kite in the sky  and you will most likely see Terri creating Sand Castles below.  

We are co founders, but most importantly we are friends who love our life here and want to share the fun with you. Our respect and trust for each other can be found in the way we run our business.
