What we do

Home Watch




Who we are

East Coast Home Watch of Amelia Island provides home watch and other home services for travelers, snowbirds, and absentee homeowners on Amelia Island and Fernandina Beach. Our goal is to reduce the worry and hassle of owning and managing a home when you’re not there.

If you are one of the many homeowners who finds yourself away from your home for business, pleasure, or other reasons, then you are familiar with the anxiety that can come from wondering how your home is doing when you’re not there. Perhaps you are the owner of a vacation home who, after traveling a great distance, spends most of your time there making repairs to that home instead of vacationing in it. East Coast Home Watch wants you to look forward to returning to your home and we have programs and services to help you safeguard, preserve and consistently maintain your home so you can relax and enjoy it on your return!

Whatever your situation may be, we want to help you transform ownership and maintenance of a second home into a real pleasure. Regular visual inspections and maintenance are key to making this happen.

Tropical climate, pests, and storms, all contribute to the need for regular inspection and maintenance of all homes in our area to prevent or reduce the extent of costly damage. Then, there are the unexpected intrusions such as animals and yes, even squatters. These problems are concerns for any homeowner in Florida but are greatly magnified the longer your home is left unattended. Having regular home watch service which includes regular visual inspections helps safeguard your investment and, more importantly, your peace of mind.

Why Hire a Home Watch Company?

The visual inspection of a home or property looking for obvious issues.

Your home, whether it’s your primary residence, or secondary home, is likely one of your greatest investments. Considering all the typical and not so typical problems that can occur while you are away, of course you’re going to need someone to keep an eye on your property and possessions. You may currently rely on a neighbor or family member to check-in on things for you or to help you out in other ways when you’re away. Or perhaps you’re planning to do so in the future. We would ask you to re-consider that choice and the all the things that could possibly go wrong. How do you hold a them accountable should costly errors or accidents occur? Unlike Home Watch professionals, they are not trained to deal with many of the incidents that can occur, nor are they bonded and insured. We strongly urge homeowners to seek out a fully bonded, insured, and accredited professional when they are absent from their homes and need help.
