We are an Iowa couple (semi-retired educators at Marshalltown Community College) who fell in love with Amelia Island and Fernandina Beach; we know you will too!

You will also love our condominium villa at Amelia Landings Resort. It is nestled in a very secluded, oak-lined, serene setting. Yet, you are a five- to ten-minute walk to a public access on beautiful Amelia Island beach!

A short, private drive leads you to our building, and there is ample parking. Extra parking for boats, trailers available--just ask.

Our villa is on the second floor of a three-story building. (Unfortunately, there is not an elevator in the building, so our condo is not handicapped accessible.)

You spoke-we listened! We have maintained the SAME RATES FOR OVER 10 YEARS!! We we have also continued to provide discounts for senior (55+) and military (active, former, retired, reserve, guard, and even dependent) guests. No proof is needed for either category. Just tell us--if we can't believe our seniors and our military men and women, who can we trust!!

We are are now taking reservations for the entire year:

-- The POPULAR spring and summer (March-July): Upper Rate Season

-- The BEAUTIFUL fall (August-October): Medium Rate Season

-- The PEACEFUL winter (November-February): Lower Rate Season

We love any time of the year on Amelia Island, and so will you, but spring, early summer, and the fall periods are our favorites!

Updates every year! Over the last several years we have:

-- replaced kitchen and laundry appliances (refrigerator, dishwasher, disposal, washer/dryer)

-- put new mattresses in both the Master Bedroom (Queen Beautyrest) and the Guest Bedroom (Twin KingKoil)

-- remodeled the kitchen (Feb 2013) (new cabinets, counter tops, sink, faucet, range hood and microwave)

-- added Paula Deen cookware to the kitchen

--removed carpeting and installed wood flooring (11mm laminate) with extra sound dampening insulation

-- purchased new living room, bedroom, and balcony furniture

--removed wallpaper and painted all surfaces (Feb, 2015)

-- installed larger flat-screen television in the LR and updated guest BR TV (Jan, 2015)

--replaced balcony light/fan combination (Feb, 2015)

--Replaced the entire A/C and Heating system, including premium user-operated temperature control (Mar 2015)

--added new art and rearranged the pieces to better fit the decor

--added an extra-padded liner for the living room sleeper couch

-- slowly built a collection of books, DVDs, and CD's. (You may wish to bring your family favorites--our collection is still small! We love it when guests contribute to our "Little Library"!)

Our condo in Fernandina Beach on Amelia Island can be your central point for travels to Savannah, Atlanta, Charleston, St. Mary's and Cumberland Islands (see wild horses here!), the attractions in Orlando, NASA and the Cape, Cocoa Beach (you must go to the legendary Ron Jon's Surf Shop!), Daytona Beach, Jacksonville, historic St. Augustine, and much, much more. Cruises depart from Jacksonville and Cape Canaveral

We look forward to welcoming you to our Amelia Landings condo. Send us an email to receive a no-obligation offer for your stay!

About Robert & Linda Moore Roblin Landings

Welcome to our vacation home!

We live in Marshalltown, Iowa, and we are both retired from the Iowa Valley Community College District in Marshalltown, where Linda was a Library Supervisor and Bob was a Professor of Psychology. We both continue to teach psychology classes part time, and Bob is a part-time marriage counselor at a local counseling center.

Linda has two adult sons, one in Mason City, IA, and one in Long Beach, CA. Bob has three adult daughters, two in Orlando, FL, and one on Daniel Island, SC. We have four wonderful grandsons and a super-duper step-granddaughter (we call her our gift grand daughter!).

When we are not traveling to see kids, we spend a lot of time (and our children's inheritance) on house renovation, both in Marshalltown and on our condo. We also love to travel and have in the past few years been to Holland, Luxembourg, France, Belgium, Key West, and Cuba. We recently cruised in the Bahamas, departing from Cape Canaveral, FL.

Robert & Linda Moore Roblin Landings purchased this condo in 2005

Why Robert & Linda Moore Roblin Landings chose Amelia Island

Since we have daughters and grandkids living in the Orlando and Charleston areas, we wanted a place roughly half way between the two locations. Fernandina Beach on Amelia Island is just perfect for us! We winter in the condo and rent it out the remainder of the year.

What makes this condo unique

All the comforts of a (ok, small, 800 SF) home, at rates that will surprise you! Senior and military discounts, return visitor discount, a free one-week stay after six stays with us, and occasional 'surprise specials' such as our amazing '25% Black Hole' special--just ask!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We very much enjoyed our stay in Amelia Island at RobLin Landings! It was a relaxing stay and perfect for a week-long escape. The beach was a simple walk from the condo, and downtown Amelia Island offered quaint restaurants and shopping. Thank you so much for providing a clean spacious condo fully equipped with games, movies, cooking utensils, and internet connection. The weather was perfect throughout the entire stay and I would highly recommend RobLin Landings to my friends and family for any future vacations. Thanks again!

Owner's Response: Karen, We are sorry it didn't work out for you this year--hopefully you can stay in our place the next time your travels take you to northeast Florida! It was our pleasure to work with you in setting up the reservation and then promptly refunding your payment when you had to cancel.

Awesome Condo!!

  • 5 of 5

I came up for a race at the end of March with my family and the condo could not have been better for us. I was looking for a place to stay close to Ft. Clinch State Park and this was perfect. The condo was clean, neat and had enough space for my two kids (3 and 8) to have there own beds and space to play. Our trip was centered around the park and if you haven't been to Ft Clinch, it's a must see! I highly recommend this condo to anyone visiting Amelia Island! Thanks for opening up your condo to us!! We'll be staying there again when we visit the area again!

Owner's Response: Dear Joe and Devon, Thanks for that strong recommendation for Ft. Clinch, and, of course, for the great review you provided for our place! Linda and I are so pleased that you and your family chose us for your Amelia get-away! We look forward to seeing you again next year!! Bob

Sweet retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We drove from Atlanta and easily found the condo......it was clean, well stocked and nice and quiet. I especially liked all the helpful notes around the condo helping us to use wifi, TV channels, washer/dryer etc. We spent most of our time on the porch enjoying perfect weather, walking to the ocean, eating out a lot and meeting Pajama Dave on a river cruise. Yes, we'll be back......

Owner's Response: Dear Diana: Linda will be so pleased that you liked her notes around the condo--this woman can be dangerous with a label maker! We love Pajama Dave also; glad you got a chance to take the cruise and meet one Amelia's most colorful characters! We love that screened port also; in fact, this week we are replacing all the screens on the porch and the ceiling fan to make it even more enjoyable! Hope to see you again, Bob

excellent condo!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at your lovely condo! It was in a great location, so close to everything, especially the nice path to walk to the beach! The condo was furnished nicely and very clean. Definitely a place we will return to in the future! Thanks so much for sharing your home with us!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review! We are so pleased you liked the location and the beach path. We enjoy that walk also! We appreciate the comments about the furnishings and the cleanliness. We make some major improvement each winter when we stay in the condo ourselves. This year, we are stripping off the wallpaper throughout the condo and painting all the walls to give it a fresh, clean, modern look!! Please do come again and take advantage of your Return Visitor Discount!! In fact, if you stay six times with us, your seventh visit is free!! Bob & Linda

enjoyable stay

  • 4 of 5

We had such a lovely time in Amelia Island. The condo is situated minutes from the beach and historic downtown. The condo is nothing fancy, but had everything we needed including peace and quiet. We really enjoyed the screened in porch. We will definitely be back to this little piece of paradise.

Owner's Response: Dear Guest--Thank you for your review. Glad you mentioned the nearby beach, the historic downtown, and our screened porch. These are three of our favorite things! Hope you had a chance to eat at some good restaurants, shop in some of our quaint stores, see some great architecture, and more. Please come back--we are going to replace the wallpaper with painted surfaces throughout the condo this year when we winter there. So now with the remodeled kitchen (2012), hardwood flooring and new furniture (2013), and, in general, upgrades each year we spend a winter there, the condo is taking on great character and is certainly becoming a very comfortable way to spend a few nights or a few weeks. Please come back when you can; we want you to get that "4" rating up to a "5"! Bob
