OCEANFRONT PRIVACY - ESCAPE TO 'YOUR OWN' BEACH HOUSE

Amelia Island Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 7-8)

The moment you step into this charming and private beach villa you will start planning your return. Spacious, tranquil and comfortable, 'Villa D' invites you to make it your 'personal' beach home. This lovingly renovated 2000 square foot home compels you to slip off your shoes and leave your cares behind.

Villa D is the owner's personal beach house, not an investment property, and is decorated and maintained with all the comforts of home in mind. This charming villa feature a spacious Master Suite with walk-in closet and a huge Master Bath with soaking tub, glass shower and double vanity; two Guest Bedrooms with private en-suite Bath and separate Vanity open onto an enclosed private Courtyard, large open Living Room, Dining Room and fully equipped Kitchen; Laundry Room with full size appliances, a separate Powder Room for guests, 500 square foot Deck over looking the beautiful Atlantic ocean.

Spectacular sunrises greet you each day and the soothing sound of the waves will lull you to sleep each night. The Villa's eastern view offers an unbroken panorama of the ocean and the dunes. Step onto your large private Deck from the Living Room, Dining Room, Kitchen or Master Suite and you are just steps from the beach.

Villa D is ground floor… no stairs in the house or on the boardwalk. Surprisingly private for a beach front home, you will feel miles away from the 'real world.'

Moments from golf, shopping, spas and the world class Ritz Carlton hotel, you are also just minutes from Historic Downtown Fernandina, museums, theaters, state parks, fishing, kayaking, horseback riding on the beach, and more!

If peace and tranquility is your idea of the dream vacation, here the ocean 'is' the entertainment. Bring your sunscreen, a good book, and a pail for your shells and shark teeth collections. This casual, relaxed island villa is just what you're looking for to build memories to last a lifetime.

Rated by Conde Nest Traveler's 2007 Readers' Choice Awards as #5 in the top 10 North American Island destinations, ahead of Hilton Head, Sanibel and Captiva, Amelia Island is an (as yet) undiscovered jewel. Visit us soon and join an exclusive list of repeat visitors who call Villa D 'My beach house'!

******************** SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT OUR TRAVELER REVIEWS **********************

Most of our guests sign our villa guest book. Yes, its low tech, but its way more personal and a lot more fun. One of the first things I do when I arrive at the villa is pour a glass of wine, fall into a deck lounger, and read my guest comments. I love that I can “meet” my guests in its pages! The Guest Comments Entered By Owner are taken straight from the guest book.

I live in Atlanta but previously have always lived near the ocean. I was introduced to Amelia Island in 1995, and could only dream about owning a beachfront home back then. I originally saw this villa in the late 90’s and fell in love with its location…and its POTENTIAL. When it went on the market in 2004 I couldn’t believe it. My husband and I love to travel, but my little slice of heaven on Amelia is still my favorite get away!

The Owner purchased this villa in 2004

I'm all about comfortable, peaceful, and laid back. This villa fit the bill. And, the location could not be more perfect… 6 miles from the top and 6 miles from the bottom of the island, everything is just minutes away… and best of all, the ocean is right outside the door!

It would take months and months to experience all the fabulous restaurants, shops, golf and other great things to do on and near Amelia; not to mention the 12 miles of beautiful beach with virtually no commercialization. You can be as busy or as laid back as you wish. Time really can stand still here... for a week, or even a few months.

A good time was had at Villa "D" by all of the Rigby clan! House - perfect, beach - wonderful, weather too! Introduced to this Gopher Tortoise who came to visit, ate his breakfast of purple blossoms before scurrying off! And bunnies too - the kids loved the "wildlife" - lizards and frogs included! Tell Villa "C" how great their place was too. :-)

Another Fabulous 2 Weeks!

Another fabulous 2 weeks at your "little bit of heaven"! This is our 3rd year with you and we plan to return every year as long as you own this villa. It's always so perfect! I love all the new touches you added this year.

Steve found 540 sharks teeth in these 2 weeks!! Patrick loved riding the waves and golfing with dad. Emily Katherine just enjoyed staying inside the villa with the A/C on. The Salty Pelican was wonderful as was Sliders. Of course drinks at the Palace Saloon! Great times!

Again, our sincere thanks for sharing your exquisite beach home with us. It's SO relaxing.

What a great week! This is the third vacation at your villa - and each time has been perfect! We have made fun family memories and had a ton of fun. We have seen turtles, lizards, chameleons, rabbits, birds, fish, porpoise, etc. Such a great week. Thank you for the beautiful home. It's really the perfect beach house!

Perfect Vacation!

  • Submitted: Jun 1, 2013
  • Stayed: May 2013
This has been a perfect vacation for my family. The accommodations were wonderful. We found a great place to eat, Clarks Fish Camp in Jacksonville... worth the drive! This was a vacation for all of my family before our son goes into the military in two weeks.

The beach was great for hunting shells and shark's teeth! We will put this on our list to return.
