Amelia Island is a great place to vacation! It reminds you of the old fashioned beach towns that dotted the Atlantic Coast before hotels and high rise communities replaced them. There is a real downtown with great shops, restaurants, live theater and museum. The white sand beaches have picnic areas and life guards (summer). Fort Clinch is on one of several state parks on the island. Civil War re-enactments are held there the first weekend of the month. There is something for everyone.
You can hear the ocean from the grounds of Amelia Landing Resort. You’re just a block and a half away. Nestled in a grove of 100 year old oak trees is your first floor two bedroom/2 bath private villa. Newly redecorated and with new stainless kitchen appliances, you’ll have everything you need. Just bring your clothes and purchase your groceries from one of the four convenient grocery stores on the island.
Your villa is tastefully furnished and equipped with high speed Internet, digital flat screen TV’s with HBO and DVD and phones with unlimited long distance. Though there are lots of great restaurants on the island, you can spend an evening in and cook; your kitchen is fully equipped for any meal prep. Delivery from several restaurants is an option. For your home entertainment, there are cards, board games, puzzles and videos. Before retiring for the evening, take a long soothing bath in one of the two large soaking tubs. Relax on your screened porch and enjoy your morning coffee or afternoon drinks. Within the grounds you can sun by the largest outdoor pool on the island, play tennis (racquets are supplied) or picnic. Grills are located in each picnic area. Walk to the beach or drive and don’t worry about beach items, we supply chairs, towels, umbrella, beach bag, cooler and boogie boards.

Jessie and Tim are retired and live part of the year in Lake Lure, NC and the rest of the year in Fernandina. Tim was an IT Manager for 3M and Jessie was a Technology Consultant for a large textbook publisher. They discovered Fernandina while living in Minnesota and found, not only, a wonderful place to escape the brutal Midwestern winters, but a charming beach town with every amenity.
We started coming to Fernandina Beach in 2002. Some friends from Georgia took us there to explore potential retirement properties. We purchased our first condo on that visit. So many friends and family members have enjoyed our “little piece of paradise” since then. Once we were both retired, we realized that we could purchase another condo and open it up to anyone wanting an affordable winter escape or summer beach trip.
There is just so much to do in Fernandina Beach. When we only vacationed there, we always went home wishing we had had more time to take advantage of the island’s amenities. There was always at least one favorite restaurant we couldn’t get to, a play we had to miss and another day sunning on the beach or at the pool we didn’t have. All seasons offer so many activities that we always had a to-do list when we returned. We especially loved the variety of festivals which are a major attraction. Jazz in the Fall and Shrimp in the Spring attract thousands.
