The Location: You will enjoy the best location in Fernandina Beach at one of the quietest and most private units in our development. You can be on the beach within 2 minutes of stepping out the front door, or at one of the nearby restaurants that cater to a wide variety of tastes. There is a great breakfast buffet, the best bbq on island, and a great places for a quiet drink overlooking the water all within a short stroll.

By car you can get to everything the island offers in minutes, the vibrant historic downtown and waterfront, shopping, Fort Clinch State Park, and so many other great places.

Skylights in the living room provide great natural lighting, while the entire apartment has been recently remodeled and oozes a modern feel mixed with island charm and decor provided by an ecclectic mix of old and new furniture throughout, including artwork by locally known artists. Kick back and listen to the breakers hit the beach through the open windows at night, or watch your favorite tv show on the new 42' flat panel tv from the oh so comfy sofas.

Our community is wonderfully maintained, clean and quiet with a lovely pool, a fantastic playground, tennis courts, and a great wooden walkway and sidewalks all around.

We provide beach towels, beach chairs (2), beach toys, travel size sunscreens, child sized life jackets (2), and a fantastic beach cart to carry it all in so your hands are free to hold little hands as you walk to the beach.

Believe it or not our first trip to Amelia Island was in January 2011. As soon as we arrived we knew we had discovered somewhere very special that we wanted to be a part of. Six weeks later we had bought our Amelia Island retreat and several trips and a full renovation later we have truly made the place our own. We are a family of 5, three small children, and this is our favorite place to spend family time. Our two boys love picking up shells and shark's teeth and daytripping to the awesome Jacksonville Zoo (30 mins)they have a train... very exciting.

Our baby daughter loves the beach and getting ice cream on her daily stroll. We love walking around downtown, getting coffee and treats, watching the shrimpers coming in, seeing the goldfish at the pirate beach shop, playing minigolf down the street.

There is a great Irish pub (O' Kane's)downtown which is great for our family as my husband grew up in Ireland and loves this little bit of home. We have made the condo a easy place to vacation by filling it with everything we need for the kids so we can travel light. We just show up with our clothes and go to the beach.

Amelia Island is an enchanting place and we are so glad to be a part of it.

Audrey McCarthy purchased this condo in 2011

We fell in love with this condo for its location, privacy, and the condo itself. From our balcony, we can hear the waves break on the beach at night and from inside all you can see outside is grass and trees lending a fantastic sense of peace and privacy. Also, the fact that we are not right on the beach means we don't get any of the traffic or cars.

The complex is very well maintained, the people are very friendly, the amenities are exactly what we want and we hardly need a car for our stay.

We can fly into JAX and be sitting on our balcony in Fernandina 30-40 minutes later.

way to the beach, so if we forget something we can easily go back and forth from the condo to the beach. The view from our balcony is all trees, which offers great privacy. From our condo we can walk to various great food locations and easily drive to grocery and shopping. The condo is beautiful, we recently renovated it adding all new appliances, adding a closet to the main bathroom, and new flooring and new paint. We love being on the upper floor because of the view and the fantastic skylights in the family room that really make the condo shine.

We fell in love with the clean beaches, the beautiful Historic Downtown, and the great antique and consignment shopping in Fernandina Beach. The condo village offers the year around pool, the playground, the tennis courts, and lots of really friendly permanent residents that will share the best places to eat, drink, shop, and play.

We couldn't belive how close everything was to Fernanadina, 25 minutes to the airport and the zoo, just over an hour to gorgeous St. Augustine, and a short drive north into Georgia for Historic St. Mary's. Really the best location in everyway possible.

The absolute convenience of everything close by and the kid-friendly items we provide for those traveling with children. Forget the car, and just walk to wherever you need to go.

We also love the on-site playground that is a few steps from our condo. So great to take the kids over at a moment's notice without worrying about carseats and driving. We couldn't be happier at this location. It is quiet and clean and so close to the beach.

COMFY AND CLEAN

  • 4 of 5
The condo was comfortable and clean for a couple alone or with two or three small children . The location was very convient; in the middle of the Island with plenty of welcome shade trees and close walking distance to the beach which was excellent for walking. June is pretty hot already so outside activities are limited to before 10 AM and after 4 PM. The Island is rich in history and we recommend a carriage ride with Rita after dark for some interesting unwritten local stories as well as a visit to Fort Clinch; teens and children wouldn't like the fort. Excellet area for Bikes; I wish I brought mine. Talbot state park to the south has some excellent paved bike trails for the price of $2.00 parking. Baxters Restaurant on the south of the Island has the best food (for adults)in our opinion.

FIRST FAMILY VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
We chose to spend our first family vacation on Amelia Island and are very glad that we chose to stay in this condo over a hotel. Everything we needed was right there. The beach was so close and easy to walk to, and the beach cart was amazing to have! The condo was very clean and neat and was more like home than any hotel could ever be! Thanks so much!!!

GREAT CONDO!

  • 5 of 5
This was our first trip to Amelia Island and we stayed at this lovely condo with our two young kids. It was perfect for us! The condo complex is very quiet and peaceful. My kids (5 and 3) loved playing tennis and hanging out at the small playground at the condo complex, which was nice for us as parents to have something to entertain them just steps from where we were staying (if you don't have kids, the play area was not noisy- we were often the only ones there!). The condo is extremely clean, cute, and well kept. It is nicely decorated and stocked very well for families. They had tennis racquets, balls, beach toys, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, tons of towels, and even a nice stack of kids books tucked away. The kitchen was clean and well stocked as well. The kids loved the bunk bed room. We liked that it was on the second floor because the ceilings are high and skylights make the condo nice and bright. Proximity to the beach was close as everyone else has said. The beach is beautiful! We made many trips to downtown Fernandina for restaurants- there are some great ones! This condo is a home away from home and made everything about our trip easy. It is a great place! We would return and recommend it to anyone.

WONDERFUL MONTH'S STAY

Wonderful month's stay
  • 5 of 5
Having spent the last two Februaries in this excellent condo, we want to emphasize a few details that have made our experience so pleasant. If you stay more than a few days, you will especially appreciate: the quiet (you hear planes sometimes but no traffic, only the waves); the beauty (as you sit on the sunny balcony or look out any window, all you see are trees and grass); the airy feel from the cathedral ceilings and skylights; the comfortable furniture and tasteful decor (no plastic fish!). And we enthusiastically endorse the positive comments about the location, proximity to beach, set-up for kids, and especially the warmth and responsiveness of Audrey and Colin. We love it.
