About The Owner

Check out my Ocean Front condo CAPTAIN'S HOUSE at BEAUTIFUL Fernandina Beach/ Amelia Island, Fl. Built on the last dune and about 30 steps from the sliding glass door to the sand,you can't get much closer without sleeping on the beach . I chose this condo because it has, hands down, the easiest entry & parking in front with incredible ocean views. I enjoy working with & helping people. I have a lock box on the front door so you can come directly to the condo without having to meet someone at an office before closing time to pick up a key. My guests love that. Call or email me today about your next vacation.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2006

LOVELY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
My husband, myself and our dog, Brewster stayed here in June 2014. It was, by far, the best trip we have had in a long, long time. The condo was just as depicted and was right on the beach. Our neighbors were delightful and the condo was very clean and just the right size for us. We could have had our Grandchildren down since we had 2 bedrooms and 2 baths, but they were tied up that week. We highly recommend the Restaurant Baxter's for night dining and Sliders for day or night. Sliders is pet friendly! Jewel was A JEWEL and so very helpful when we talked with her. I have already recommended this to several of our friends. One really selling point for me was that my husband usually does not like the beach, but I converted him on this trip! We will certainly return next summer. Guaranteed.

Owner's Response: Yolanda,
Thanks so much for the great review. As the owner, I appreciate every kind word. This is the best location ever. Walk in the front door, down the hall & out the sliding glass doors, across the deck, down a short ramp right onto the beach. As you sit in the family room or the dining room or kitchen, you feel like the ocean is going to roll in on you. It's that close. I look forward to hearing from you anytime. Thanks a million.

Great Place to Rent

  • 5 of 5
The condo was as advertised! The location to the beach is literally directly out the sliding glass door. A picnic table was also on the deck and it was awesome to sit around it and eat lunch or dinner. The condo is also very close to Ft. Clinch State Park which has great hiking trails. It's very close to Fernandina Beach Historic district with all the shops and fun restaurants.

My dog loved her stay without having to navigate too many steps. The renters above and to the side were also wonderful so that made the stay even more enjoyable.

My only complaint.....tv needs to be upgraded. But....I was at the beach most of the time so that wasn't too big of a concern.

Jewel was also super to work with in regards to payments, contracts and general things.

Can't wait to go back!

Owner's Response: Anna, thanks a million for your great review. I appreciate all the good things you had to say. I'm so glad your doggie enjoyed it along with you. It's so convenient to the beach you don't have to worry about the pets or children falling over a balcony. You are only about 50' from the sliding glass doors until you step onto the beach. Again, thanks a million.

This is an excellent condo with plenty of room. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and it was wonderful to finally get it right and actually be right on the beach! This was my first visit to Amelia Island, but hopefully not my last and I would definitely rent this unit again. Also, thank you for allowing pets. Our little guy enjoyed the beach so much!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind review. This condo is so convenient with no stairs/elevators & stepping right out the back door, crossing the deck and onto the beach. What could be better! Just bring your clothes, toothbrush & food and you are all set to enjoy this condo right on the beach.
Thanks a million.

A Comfortable Place Right on the Ocean

  • 4 of 5
We were thrilled to find a nice place right on the ocean where we could spend the week with our grown son and our two small dogs. It was wonderful to see the ocean from our kitchen and living room and to have such easy access to the beach. We found the condo ready for us when we arrived. It was clean and inviting and all of the beds were comfortable. We were happy to find that the AC worked really well, too. The owner was very pleasant and professional in all of our communications which made us feel welcome, too.

The condo has a house phone with unlimited long distance which is most helpful since the island has really spotty phone reception, even with Verizon service. The WiFi was unreliable, kicking our IPads off and on--not a problem as long as you don't count on it being a working vacation. We don't know if it is a provider problem or a bad modem.

There are wonderful restaurants and lots of activities nearby and everyone we met was friendly. All in all, it was a wonderful week and we hope to return.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind review. I am really blessed when I hear that my guest have enjoyed themselves at the beach and our condo. We work very hard to insure that our guest have a very pleasant time at the beach. This condo is one of the most convenient and best located at Fernandina Beach. Walk right out the sliding glass doors, across the deck, down a short ramp and right onto the beach. What better location could there be for children and pets, or for the elderly, like me. A million thanks.

At least there is a beautiful view!

  • 2 of 5
The view is beautiful, the beach is beautiful and access to the beach is very close to the condo unit. There is a DVD player attached to the master bedroom tv. The owner said there was no DVD player but there actually is. We tried to hook up our DVD player we brought from home but couldn't get the living room tv to recognize it. There is also a grill with a wind guard for the condo's use. (A previous guest must have purchased the grill and left it as it is brand new). The owner did not know it was there.

Unfortunately, I can only give our stay a 2 rating due to the condition of the unit. The unit needs to be DEEP CLEANED from top to bottom!! After a six hour drive, it was very upsetting to arrive to see how filthy the condo is. We called the owner first thing in the morning and she did have her cleaning person come back and clean some more. I spoke to the cleaning person at length and she is only
supposed to do a general cleaning between each guest. So the grunge and the grime never get addressed. The condo has layers of dust everywhere : baseboards, walls, light fixtures, the air vents in the master bathroom / bedroom are black and have dust hanging from them, the front edges /creases of the furniture are dusty. The tile grout and caulking are black in the master bath. There is toothpaste spit all over the walls in the master bath. Shower curtain and rod is rusty so is the handicap bar.

The lampshades are dusty, the kitchen cabinets still had food on them by the handles. One of the bottom kitchen walls had food drips on it.

This condo has not been recently painted at all. The walls and doors are super beat up. Big divet in wall as you head into the kitchen.

The owner told me the other day when I called to complain that she must have accidentally put another condo she owns information in this unit's description. Because this unit has not been painted.

The clock radio does not work in the master bedroom. If you plug it in, the radio never stops playing.

The cleaning person did clean some baseboards and some pictures and some light fixtures while she was here the other day. She did try and clean the kitchen cupboards more at my request. She cleaned the master ceiling fan which was disgusting. There is still dust all over the ceiling where the fan blows.

I feel bad writing a review like this. We leave tomorrow and unfortunately we will not rent this condo again.

Owner's Response: This guest caught me while I was a patient at the Mayo Clinic and seemed we failed to please her. I'm so sorry. Our cleaning lady was sent back to clean the things the guest complained to me about and once she was there, the guest stood over her and had her clean absolutely everything again. After the bathroom was cleaned the second time, the guest used the toilet and told her to clean it again.
This is a great condo with a wonderful view and you can walk right out the back sliding doors, across the deck and down a short ramp & onto the beach. It is sooo convenient & absolutely great for families with children, elderly guest and pets. No risk from falling from high balconies. no stairs to climb, no long walks to get to the beach. About 99.9% of my guests really love this condo and I have several who return year after year. They book as early as Dec. the prior year to get the week they want. We hope this guests has more success in the future.
We thank them for trying our condo and apologize for any inconvenience they experienced.
