Amelia Island Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 3 Bedrooms +(2 Convertible bed(s), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-10)

Our Shipwatch condominium is located directly on the Atlantic ocean with beautiful views of the ocean and the pool. The views you see were taken from our balcony. The 2131-square-foot living area has three large bedrooms each with its own full bath located within the bedroom suite. The condo has beautifully decorated rooms with oil paintings and tile floors and for additional privacy when you retreat to the lower floor it is as though you have gone to another condo! The bedrooms/baths and laundry area are downstairs and upstairs is a large kitchen, half bath, living area, wet bar and separate formal dining room. The large balcony has three sets of sliding glass doors that gives floor to ceiling views from every room upstairs. The balcony is furnished with a beautiful table and chairs for enjoying your coffee as the sun rises or dining under the stars.

The condo is located on the Amelia Island Plantation. Enjoy the hundred year old Live Oak Trees that drape the roads and bike paths right next to the sea. And for those who wish to relax and be pampered, a day at the Spa is fabulous! Whether riding bikes on the miles of paved bike trails, fishing, shopping, or horseback riding on the beach, there is always something to do on the Plantation! There is so much to do (or NOT do)!! You may want to explore the island or prop up your feet and just relax! It is your vacation and we want everyone in your group to enjoy it 'their way'!! Those who stay up late at night or rise early in the mornings will not disturb others who may want to stay in bed. It really is like having two condos!!!

All three of the bedrooms are suites with the full baths located within the bedroom suite. All baths are identical with a full bathtub and overhead shower, toilet and sink on a long having to get dressed and go down the hall in the middle of the night ...or having to share!!! Two of the bedrooms are Master Suites with a king size bed and a separate dressing area with a large mirror and long vanity where you can apply make up or style hair while someone else is bathing and the steam is not a problem! The third bedroom has two twin beds that can be pushed together to make a king bed by using the connector in the closet. The condo has more storage space than most homes!!! There are several walk-in closets and also other closets and storage for linens etc. There is a large washer and dryer behind closed doors in the beautiful downstairs foyer with separate entrance and also a closet in the beautiful upstairs foyer next to the new powder room. It also has a separate entrance. The kitchen is large enough for several cooks and has lot's of pots and pans, dishes, glassware, and beautiful silverware. There is a formal dining room with access to the kitchen using the bi-fold doors or they can be closed....whatever you choose. The furniture is beautiful and has a china cabinet for additional wine glasses etc. The living room blends with the dining room and has a 50 inch plasma flat screen TV and a wet bar. Three sets of sliding glass doors are side by side , giving a 20 foot view and also access to the balcony. Floor to ceiling views are possible from every room upstairs. There is another closet on the balcony with some grilling accessories. There is also a dining table and chairs on the balcony for relaxing and enjoying the view. We are the closest condo to the pool in our walking from several buildings away!! You can also grill on our new grills located to the left of the pool while you swim. The condo is designed with top of the line beautiful furniture and it has all tile floors every where except the staircase which we replaced with wood so the condo is not only beautiful it is maintenance free. The two full Massaud Sofas both make fold out queen size beds with a mattress so that the condo can sleep 6 to 10 people. Having a condo this large and on two floors is wonderful ....upstairs is for fun and if someone is tired or wants privacy, they can go downstairs! Grandparents don't have to keep the same hours as children and everyone doesn't have to watch the same TV programs! This condo is great for weekends but also has such a well designed plan with so much storage and could be lived in year round!

Why The Owner chose Amelia Island

We chose to buy our condo because nowhere else in the world have we found century old oak trees draping right next to an ocean. The perfect harmony of nature and wildlife together with the sounds of splashing waves we hear from our condo made it our only choice. Also we can be at the Jacksonville International Airport (JAX) in 25 to 30 minutes. Our island sits in a cove that has protected it from major storms for many years.

The many restrauants, unique shops and world class spa make it a dream come true and an escape from reality!

What makes this villa unique

Our condo has a wonderful floor plan! When our family gets together it is especially nice to enjoy each others company and yet sometimes it is nice to slip away downstairs for quiet moments! It really is like having two condos. If someone gets up early to watch the sunrise with coffee in the mornings, no one else is disturbed and if others stay up late...those in bed will never know. Also having a full bath located inside each bedroom is wonderful.

What a Florida gem

  • 5 of 5

What a Florida gem. Amelia Island during Car week is exciting and worth the visit. This year we choose to try VRBO and the experience was fantastic. It was clean, quiet, relaxing and well located. The Condo has a wonderful balcony with view of the Atlantic. It is easy walking distance form the beach and has access to the heated pool and bbq grills.

The rooms and baths are well thought out with comfortable beds and the kitchen area is well stocked with utensils, glassware and dinning serving pieces. They have a lovely indoor dinning area as well as a balcony table. I can not think of anything that would make this Condo better. It has it all…

My husband and I and 2 other couples stayed here for the Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance. We have stayed in a chain hotel previously and wish we had discovered this condo and the Plantation sooner. The owner was very helpful and was it was very easy doing business with him. We had never been there before and he sent very detailed instructions that we had no trouble following. It is decorated beautifully and we enjoyed spending time there instead of going out. The bedrooms are on the lower level and it's very quiet, even when others are still upstairs. There are restaurants and shops close by on the Plantation and a shuttle to take you wherever you wish. After going out the first 2 nights, we decided on the 3rd night to go pick up food at the market near the shops and bring it "home" to eat. On the 4th and last night, we were tired from the car show and stayed in and had snacks for dinner. The pool and beach are very close and easy to get to. You can even use a barbeque cooker by the pool if you wish. It would be a great place to cook a meal because of a good sized kitchen and dining room. A great place to meet friends and family. We hope to go back again.

Great Florida Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We vacationed for a week on Amelia Island Plantation and had a wonderful time. The condo was very clean, well maintained, nicely decorated and furnished with everything needed. It has new appliances and the washer/dryer even has an instruction manual because of so many functions. Now my wife wants a new set like that one.

The grounds are well manicured; secure; the pool was clean; the private beach was huge without many people. The beach walk was convenient (even with a 4 year old) and the pool was basically right outside from the condos bottom floor. The fine dining on the plantation was great with very friendly staff. We took a horse drawn carriage ride in the historic district and my daughter thought she was Cinderella!

Sporting activities such as surfing, fishing, tennis and golf can also be enjoyed. The condo has a room full of beach equipment/toys/chairs/umbrellas, everything you could want.

The owner was very helpful and responsive to any question and even helped us figure out how to use the surround sound system for movies and playing music. I have highly recommended this property to my family, friends and have already made my reservation for next year.

Doesn't get any better than this!

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Amelia for 19 years and have stayed at every vacation rental on the island. This villa is the most beautiful, well kept property on the island. The ocean views are SPECTACULAR from the balcony and are much better than the picture in the ad(need to change it).

The owners pay close attention to all the details, small and large. The linens, towels, furnishings, paintings, beach equipment, Plasma HDTVs, beds and decor are all top notch. We loved cooking with all the right stuff to make any meal (spices are even included). The whole experience was splendid.

We loved watching the dolphins play in the waves from the balcony and the kids would rush out to see them up close. We have never slept so well, so the mattresses must be top notch, not too firm or too soft.

Our only wish is that this villa had more availability because it was hard to find an open week. We even had someone book the week we were deciding on in less than a day. :(

At least we got a week to get away from the horrible winter. We will be coming back to OUR new place every year from now on. :)

Thanks for a great time!

One of the nicest places we have ever stayed in!

  • 5 of 5

Our family vacation included three generations with kids, & grandparents, so we wanted a special place to enjoy it in. After a lot of comparing we chose this condo because of how well it seemed to be layed out and the location right by the pool and on the beach.

Words do not even begin to describe how beautiful it is or how wonderful our vacation was. The breathtaking view we had each morning of the sun rising "out of the ocean" while we relaxed on the balcony drinking coffee was worth the price alone. Dolphins were seen on a couple of days as they were catching their morning meal.

The beds are great, with comfy blankets to snuggle with, and the furniture is just fantastic. There is an abundance of beach towels, beach chairs & gear. The kitchen is very well stocked, and they even have a functional wet bar with everything you need to make drinks except for the booze(we left some behind for the next visit) ;)

This condo was exactly as described and fully prepared to satisfy all our needs. The weather was great and we felt like we had the beach all to ourselves with an occasional passer bye. All the amenities described were great. The owner was very helpful in his recommendations for local things-to-do for our large group. He even set us up at a gym where we could access it 24/7 on a temp membership. A sampling of our activities during our 7 day stay included: ferry rides, horseback riding, cruising through the plantation on golf carts, biking on the wonderful paved trails, mini golf, tennis, fishing(poles provided), boogie boarding(provided), shelling, and too much more to list. We dined on the plantation at the Verandah, Falcons Nest, Marche Burette, and the surf pizza joint. It was all wonderful along with places to eat he recommended in town. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for the PERFECT beach vacation with family or friends! (and it was only a 25 minute drive from the Jacksonville airport).

We hope to come back again soon. We just LOVE Amelia Island Plantation!

The way a perfect family beach vacation should be!!!

  • 5 of 5

This oceanfront villa and view exceeded our expectations. The view was exceptional and the villa was immaculate with plenty of room to accommodate 8 family members and friends. Every couple had their own bed and bathroom. The owners were very helpful with recommendations both before and during our vacation. The owners gave us GREAT dining suggestions for the area, and tons of activities to go to.

The villa is right on the ocean and the view of the sunrise each morning was stunning. It has a private balcony overlooking the Atlantic, and we could see dolphins each morning.

While the pictures of the villa are great, it is even better in person. The small details and how well it is kept was fantastic. We utilized the beach chairs and umbrellas as well as the heated pool and enjoyed every minute.

I highly recommend it and look forward to our next stay!
