Welcome to our Fernandina Beach retreat. Whether traveling with children or a fun adult-only get away, our inviting home is can be your ideal location from which to enjoy all that Amelia Island has to offer.
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.
The Condo: You will love our condo! The living room and bedrooms boast cathedral celings that lend a spacious light-filled feel that so many vacation condos lack. 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.
The Family Advantage: We make it easy for you to travel with your children and only bring clothes. 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. We have a single stroller, a high chair, a booster seat, children's bowls, plates, cutlery, sippy cups, bibs, and a bottle warmer.
You are going to love Amelia Island and you will love our little haven away from home...

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.
We had a wonderful week. Very laid back and quiet atmosphere. Great place to walk and ride bikes. The beach buggy was awesome to have when we loaded up for the walk to the beach. Condo had everything we needed and more....
We had the good fortune to spend a month at Colin and Audrey's Amelia Island condo. The roomy condo was clean and well-equipped including beach necessities (chairs, towels, beach towels, coolers). The galley kitchen has all the meal prep tools needed and the master suite was quite comfortable. We enjoyed sitting on the small deck overlooking the greenery. Forest Ridge is a short walk from the beach and beautifully landscaped with a pool and tennis courts. Audrey and Colin are attentive owners concerned with the comfort and enjoyment of their guests. We recommend this property without reservation.
What a beautiful condo in such a quiet area of the island. The owners were so accommodating. We were only there a short time but we definitely plan on a return trip!
My stay at the condo was fantastic, the condo was clean spacious and comfortable. Unfortunately when I stayed the pool was being redone so don’t get to use the pool faculties. The grounds where clean and quite residents were friendly. Location was great, walk one block and you were at the beach. Also within walking distance to many restaurants or short drive to stores. Had a great time while I was there highly recommended.
Thank you so much for allowing us to share your beautiful and extremely clean condo. Everything exceeded our expectations, from the lovely personal touches to the quite location and close proximity to the beautiful beach. This was our second visit to the area and we look forward to our next trip here. Hopefully your home will be available again as we wouldn't think of staying anywhere else. It was really nice to come back to such a cozy and comfortable condo after a days activities, versus a hotel room. It was great having the option to dine out or dine in. Lots of great restaurants in the area. Specially enjoyed Joes 2nd Street bistro and Cafe Karibo on 3rd Street, both downtown Fernandina Beach. Lovely sunset views from the balcony at the Salty Pelican bar/restaurant (food was really good too). Great shopping in the area and the beaches are really lovely. Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves from day one and again a big thank you to the owners, Colin and Audrey. You have a fabulous place and future guests will not be disappointed!
Very clean and just a nice cozy little place. Very close to the beach. Less than a 2 block walk. We spent hrs. down at the beach and like others said in their reviews we loved the cart. We packed the chairs, the sun umbrella, snacks, books, sunscreen you name it, for a whole day of sitting in a serene setting by the Atlantic Ocean enjoying all the sites and sound of the Ocean. This was a time in our lives where we needed some peace and quiet and this beach fit that description. Surprising how few people were on the beach each day. We were always so glad to come back to our little "home" when the day was over. A couple nights I fixed dinner and we stayed in. The kitchen was fully stocked. All you'd ever need was right there. (We bought our groceries at Walmart , not far from Fernandina). Audrey and Colin (the owners) were very quick in their replies back to us about any questions we had. Even about best places to eat, etc. They are honest people and we appreciated this so much. Our business transactions were quick and efficient. Also appreciated paying such a reasonable price for renting this lovely little place. Make sure you go to the Marina to watch the sunset. The beauty was surreal. Thanks Audrey and Colin. We will return.
