About Brenda Jackson

Robert and I are semi-retired and live on the Island in downtown Fernandina. Robert grew up in Jacksonville, so he was somewhat familiar with the Island, but we both really fell it love with it when we visited in the early 90's. We loved it so much, we would drive from Atlanta every other weekend - getting here late on Friday night and leaving for home early Sunday afternoon. When we crossed that bridge to the Island, it always felt like coming home. Our dream was to someday be able to make the Island our home. In 2002, we finally realized that dream and moved here full-time. We have two condos - a 1BR/1BA at the Surf & Racquet and a 2BR/2BA in Summer Beach Village (Sailmaker). We thoroughly enjoy managing our condos and we have met so many wonderful people. We do our best to make our condo special for our guests - a place they would like to come often. Some have even gotten the itch to move here, too! We highly recommend it!

Why Brenda Jackson chose Amelia Island

We walked in this condo and knew we wanted to purchase it. It is so convenient on the ground floor - just walk right out to the pool and to the beach with no stairs or elevators to deal with! Very nice view of the ocean from every room. It has a great 'feel' and is super clean.

What makes this condo unique

great views, new Stearns & Foster mattress that is oh, so comfortable, nicely decorated and very clean

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I found this condo via Trip advisor and felt like it would be a good fit for us. We were so pleased with the condo itself. It is located on the southern end of the island which in our opinion is the more peaceful end. Our entire experience was lovely - Brenda made everything so easy for us and even provided an extremely helpful guide to the island including activities and restaurant reviews. We felt like we were staying in a relative's condo. The condo itself is just wonderful - on the ground floor so every morning we could just walk out of the patio doors and onto the beach. I cooked almost every meal in the well-equipped kitchen and even read a suspenseful Patricia Cornwell novel that was on the condo's bookshelf. I can't recommend renting with Brenda and her husband more. We had a great experience.

A perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed your beach condo. When we arrived, the unit was spotless and as beautiful in person as it is in the pictures. The condo is very tastefully decorated. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need to cook meals in, or you can go out to eat to the many wonderful restaurants on the island. The ground floor location within steps of the pool and boardwalk couldn't get any more convenient. And having use of the beach chairs without having to haul our own down there saved room in the car. Right outside the complex are miles of walking and biking paths to get in some exercise if you wish. Brenda is a delight to work with, she responds to emails and communication in a timely fashion. We would definitely come back to stay again.

GLORIOUS

  • 5 of 5

Our family was planning to visit Amelia Island for a very special occasion. After reviewing the photos and details of the unit, we submitted our inquiry to Brenda with our unique set of circumstances. Brenda responded immediately and with great joy was willing to accommodate our particular needs, which was an answer to our prayers. As we continued to finalize the details of our stay, Brenda noticed that there could possibly be a conflict with another reservation. In keeping with her kindness and integrity to each family, she promptly provided a generous solution in offering another one of her properties to us and took great detail to eliminate any and all inconveniences. This initial communication was just the beginning of working with one of the most professional, organized, flexible and detailed property owners we have encountered. To summarize, working with Brenda was like communicating with family. Information about deposit procedures, rates, restaurants with personal notations, local groceries, etc. was clear and incredibly helpful. The unit was spotless, pristine, well maintained and peaceful. The nearness of the relaxing pool and proximity of the beautiful beach were wonderfully convenient. Mornings and evenings on the unit's patio were accompanied by the sound and smell of the ocean. This was truly a gloriously memorable stay and we will continue to highly recommend this unit and the property owners to all who visit Ameila Island. And of course…we will be back.

The unit was better than expected! Everything was clean and well-stocked. The location near the pool and beach path was very convenient. The electric locks, ample parking and gated entry were pluses. We've been visiting Fernandina for many years and decided to branch out to a different area...that was a great decision. It was much more comfortable and convenient than our usual place on Sadler. The Jacksons were terrific hosts. Special thanks to Robert for getting us on the network.

Great!!

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I stayed at this condo for TPC week...on one of the busiest days of the tournament we were there with in 1 hour. The condo was absolutely perfect for us--very clean and well stocked. No need to pack bulky beach towels in your luggage. The pool was right off the patio and the beach access was right there also. Although we ate our meals out, the kitchen had everything you would need to prepare meals in. Thank you Brenda for the updated list of restaurants--many to choose from and all were good--Surf, Sliders, Sandy Bottoms, Crab Trap, Barbara Jeans,Parkway Grill, T-Rays (yes the pancakes were the VERY best!!) We've been to the island before so we've pretty much been to most over the years.

Loved the walking trail--felt very safe even at dusk or very early morning.

Highly recommend this property if you want a comfortable relaxing vacation. Thank you Brenda and Robert for your hospitality.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

I initially booked this condo to stay to only stay for 9 days. Brenda was awesome, her reservation procedure could not have been simplier. I arrived to find the condo exactly they way it is presented on the website (the pictures do not do this condo justice, it is beautiful). Once I arrived, I was enjoying myself so much that I contacted Brenda and asked her if the condo was available for longer, and as luck would have it, I was able to extend my stay to almost a month! The pool is literally right outside your patio door. I was there for the "blue moon" and realized that I was able to take amazing pictures right from the patio. The beach was just steps away from the condo (the pool was even closer). I was able to take a short walk up the beach to the Ritz Carlton (you can use their spa services with an appointment), and realized that I was spending a month at this condo for what I would spend in less than a week at the Ritz and enjoyed the same beach as those paying much more!

I was traveling alone but enjoyed the company of others at the pool and the beach, and I met some people who I fast became friends with, including a couple of the owners within the condo complex. It was the quiet retreat that I was in search of. The king size bed was one of the most comfortable beds that I have ever slept on. Parking was plentiful, I was often able to park right in front of the building. The ground floor unit made is just a quick hop to the pool or beach. The kitchen was more than adequate and I arrived back home with all of my laundry clean because of the washer and dryer within the unit.

I look forward to returning soon! Thanks again Brenda, your place is simply awesome!

Our R&R stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I found this condo on the web and had a great experience here. Unfortunately the pool was not in working order so we weren't able to utilize it. Being able to relax in the pool in the evening would have been nice. There was a very short walk to the beach down the pathway. We felt like we had the beach to ourselves. The inside of the condo was in mint condition when we got there. It was more than we anticipated. There was ample supplies in the kitchen so we were able to cook our own food and linens were available for our use. It was great and we would go back there again.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your comments! I was so sorry the pool closest to our unit was closed for remodeling during your stay. The remodeling took longer than anticipated and we are looking forward to its reopening in another week. We hope you will be back again soon. Thank you again. Brenda
