Get beautiful sunrise and sunset views!
This spacious, non-smoking condominium in Ocean Park faces the ocean and is surrounded by Fort Clinch State Park, which gives a unique sense of privacy -- A lovely ocean view from the private balcony on one side, and a view of Fort Clinch State Park on the other side. See the sunrise from your private balcony and the sunset from your corridor terrace outside your front door. Stroll to the beach, less than 200 yards away, or sit on the patio deck in the evening, enjoying the panoramic ocean view, and hear the surf pounding on the shore -- not the traffic! Take a dip in the pool, a hike in the woods at Fort Clinch State Park, or enjoy the family-friendly picnic and recreation park on the beach only a block away. A perfect location -- quiet and serene, yet right next to the beach and a short walk or drive to many activities.
This large (1400 square feet) unit includes living/dining area, fully equipped kitchen, two bedrooms with baths, all newly furnished and artfully decorated. Also included is a laundry room, balcony, and locked private garage. Everything is provided -- from linens to ice-maker. There are even beach chairs in the locked garage.
The master bedroom contains a queen-size bed with a TV, large master bath and roomy walk-in closest. The second bedroom contains two twin beds with adjacent bath. Additional sleeping space is provided with sleeper sofa in the living room. The entertainment center in the living room houses cable TV, DVD with DVD collection, assorted board games and card games for a rainy afternoon, and, of course, wireless internet.
A few minutes drive takes you to the historic district in downtown Fernandina Beach where you will find a myriad of unique shops and artist studios, and a culinary assortment of restaurants on the river waterfront. Also visit Fort Clinch in the state park, the highly-rated Fernandina Beach Golf Club, or take a ferry to Cumberland Island to explore back to nature treasures. Less than an hour drive will take you to Jacksonville for more sports activities, Jax Zoo, and more cultural arts and dining adventures.
For many years we explored the islands off the coast of Georgia and Florida. When we discovered Amelia Island, we knew it was a keeper. The island has many places to explore, fine restaurants and shops,and a beautiful beach, all without feeling like a tourist camp. One of our favorite activities is just sitting on our private balcony, watching the sea birds play in the pond and listening to the sounds of nature. Amelia Island has become a favorite vacation spot for our family and friends.
Mike purchased this condo in 2003
We chose a beautiful condominium in Ocean Park on the north end of the island, nestled between Fort Clinch State Park and the beach, because the north end of the island is less commercialized than the developments on the south end. This quiet location is also more convenient to popular attractions, including Fort Clinch Sate Park, Egans Creek Greenway, Centre Street, the old lighthouse, and public parks. You can bicycle to these areas! You know what they say -- it's all about location, location, location!
The Ocean Park condominium complex is newer, and therefore more spacious and updated with modern appliances than many of the older condos along the beach. Hey, we even have a trash compactor! You will also find a private, closed, locked garage (no parking problems!) which is large enough for bikes and beach equipment, too. The washer and dryer are inside the unit. And, of course, we have WiFi. Everything very updated and private for a luxurious stay.
This is our 4th or 5th stay (we've lost count) at this condo, and it's like coming home. It's always so clean and fresh and updated. This time we found new towels and dishes, an expanded DVD library, new furniture on the balcony, and a softer mattress in the master bedroom! You can tell that the owners really love this place -- and we do too! Until next time --
Only a three minute walk to the beach from the condo.
Also located next to Fort Clinch State Park which has periodic reinactments at the fort, as well as miles of hiking and biking trails and an almost mile long pier for fishig. Also walking distance to Egans Creek Greenway, the Amelia Lighthouse, a recreation center, a children's playground, and a skateboard park. A three minute drive to Centre Street in Fernandina for shopping, restaurants, and the historic district.
In a quiet neigborhood, but with easy access to many activities!
