Ocean Place is located on beautiful Amelia Island which boasts some of the most beautiful beaches and golf courses in Florida. Ocean Place at Summer Beach is one of the most beautiful properties on the island and is located in the exclusive gated community of Summer Beach Resort right next door to the world-renowned Ritz Carlton Amelia Island hotel and Spa. At the Ritz, you may enjoy fine dining, spa treatments, tennis, golf and shopping.
This beautiful two bedroom two bath 5th floor condominium is located directly on the beach and provides spectacular views and incredible sun rises. This condominium was recently renovated which included new paint, furniture, art work, (3) 46' flatscreen HDTVs, new ceiling fans, bathroom fixtures, lamps, carpet, appliances, plush bedding, etc. Our condo truly does feel like a second home rather than 'rental condo', because we want our guest to feel like they are at home. Sleep with the doors open and listen to the crashing waves and see the moon from your bed. Then arise in the morning to the most beautiful sunrise over the Atlantic Ocean. You can sit out on the deck, and while having your morning coffee, watch the dolphins and sea gulls having their morning breakfast behind the shrimp boats.
Downtown in Fernandina, you will find the oldest seaport in the U.S. which has a rich heritage and has been under eight different flags. My family loves to stroll around downtown, especially at night among the lighted trees and visit the quaint shops and wonderful restaurants. Especially fun also, is a horse and buggy ride tour of historic Fernandina. Additionally, there are jet ski, parasails, and inland/offshore fishing charters available for hire. A short ferry ride can take you to beautiful Cumberland Island, the only national sea shore on the East Coast.
My husband's family has been vacationing on Amelia Island for about 40 years. After we got married and had children we began bringing our own family here on vacation. My children never wanted to go anywhere else. For several years we spent the entire month of July here. Our family's most treasured memories are of this Island. We decided that we wanted to own our own little piece of Heaven on Amelia Island, so we began looking around and finally settled on Ocean Place. We now have three grown boys, ages 25, 23, and 20 and they still love going to Amelia Island to vacation, even after all of these years. There really is something for all ages to enjoy. We hope that you will love our home away from home as much as we do and we look forward to sharing it with you.
Jan Barry purchased this condo in 1998
We absolutely loved the location next to the Ritz because we have three boys, who all love to golf and the golf course is located right next door. We love the bike/walking paths located throughout Summer Beach where our children like to ride their bikes and skateboards. There is always someone available for the children to play with, however, the beaches are not crowded at all.
Our unit is located on the fifth floor in the middle of the building which offers complete unobstructed views of the ocean in all directions for as far as the eye can see. There are two pools at Ocean Place to enjoy so you don't feel as though you have to fight for a spot at the pool. The condominium community is gated which gives us peace of mind about our security. We have free WI-FI service so you can connect to the outside world IF YOU CHOOSE TO, three 46' HDTV televisions with cable and DVR service, with 300 channels included, and free long distance phone service to anywhere in the USA and Canada.
Once again, our month-long stay at the Barry's Ocean Place beach home was an exceptionally pleasant experience. This was the second time we've spent a winter vacation here, and everything was just perfect, as we expected it would be. Jan has provided everything her guests could possibly need in making this a comfortable and cozy place. It feels like a home away from home. The view from the balcony is spectacular, and the weather allowed for many relaxing hours enjoying watching the surf roll in -- as well as quite a few surfers riding the waves. We are definitely planning another return visit, hopefully next December-January.
This is our 4th year to stay in this fabulous condo. It is so great we try and extend our stay every year. They are wonderful to work with and continue to make upgrades and features to the condo. We are returning again in 2015, that pretty much sums it up, 5 years at the same place must mean it is wonderful, and we have stayed at other properties on the island. Thanks again Jan for a wonderful place to vacation!
This is a beautiful condo right on the beach and a very short walk to the Ritz Carlton Hotel next door. The condo has plenty of beach chairs and umbrellas to use and many other beach toys. If you are seeking long walks along the beach or just stretching out on the sand this place has it all plus the owner is both hospitable and accommodating.
I was really happy with this beautiful condo. The furnishings were lovely and most importantly it was very clean. I was there alone for a few days until my friend came and felt perfectly safe. The owner was kind enough to check on me and also left a nice note and a great bottle of wine for us. We enjoyed sitting out on the balcony for breakfast and again in the evening (until the day the "love bugs" came!) The bathrooms were spacious and had lots of storage. The floor plan was a perfect arrangement for us because the bedrooms were so separate that we each had plenty of privacy. Also it was nice to have such detailed instructions for everything. It made it so easy to function! I loved the pool and the beach. No crowds here to upset the serenity. I think I've covered everything. It is a great unit and I heartily recommend it.
My husband & I, and our daughter & her husband, stayed in this beautiful condo the last week of July. It was very hot the first part of the week - but that's when the wonderful private balcony was so appreciated, even allowing for an afternoon nap in the loungers! We've been coming to Amelia for 18 years & usually stay on the north end of the island - but the sand & the view, coupled with the outstanding surroundings of this condo on the south end have made quite an impression on us. The owner, Jan, has gone above & beyond in her attention to detail, anticipating what guests might need & like to have in the way of "perks" (beach chairs, umbrellas, small shampoos, hair dryers, etc.). Not all condo owners provide such niceties! A well furnished kitchen is a big help & we used the bar height balcony chairs & table every evening for wine & hors d' oeuvres. From the balcony we also watched 3 turtles & a bunny on the dunes below & of course, the dolphins are welcomed sight - going north in the morning & south in the afternoon! Thanks Jan for helping to make our week at Amelia a memorable one!
Our family spent a week enjoying Amelia Island. We were so blessed to be able to stay in this beach front condo. It was absolutely perfect for our family. The personal touches Jan adds (a bottle of wine for the grown-ups, pool toys for our boys, and a hand-written note welcoming us to the beach) were a welcome surprise. We enjoyed ocean front views every morning while eating breakfast on the deck. I think our boys drug out most every toy in the storage closet-- boogey boards, skim boards, etc! They even tried their hand at fishing- even catching a small hammerhead shark one morning! When we return to Amelia, we will be making a reservation with Jan. Thank you so much!
This is the third year my family spent 2 wonderful weeks in this fabulous home away from home. We love it here!
Jan is so great to work with....very attentive. The condo was spotless when we arrived, and Jan's personal touches abound, from a hand-written note, to a nice bottle of wine, to specialty soaps in the bathrooms. The kitchen is very well equipped and there are plenty of very nice towels and linens. The furniture is all super comfortable and beautiful. We spend a lot of time on the balcony and love the view!
Jan does a fantastic job of keeping the condo updated. She is so easy to deal with too!
