We take pride in keeping 'Our Jewel by the Sea' nice and clean for your arrival. Our townhome sleeps a total of six (6) guest (max) with two king and one queen bed. The main living area on the second level features open concept living for a roomy entertaining feel with it's high ceilings from the time you step into the kitchen, dining and living room area where you're sure to enjoy all the comforts of home. In the living room enjoy the 46 inch LCD HDTV/dvd after a fun-filled day at the beach or the many other activities like shopping or sightseeing you will find on the island. This home is designed for open living, dining and kitchen area offers dining seating for eight on the nights you prefer dinner at home. The cook in the family will love the kitchen area with views of the ocean at a glance from the sliding glass doors in the living room. The kitchen has all stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops and custom cabinetry. It is fully equipped with all your kitchenware utensils with breakfast bar seating for three.

From the main second floor, watch the early sunrise every morning along with your first cup of coffee and most days many other surprises such as, sailboats, shrimp boats, and on the best of sunny days, a beautiful array of colorful kites flying high over the beach and at high tide the beauty and sounds of the waves crashing ashore. And if you are lucky enough to be staying here during a full moon you will be amazed watching the moonlight dancing on the crashing waves and hearing the song of the sea from the balcony...a beautiful site and feeling to behold! These are some of the special things I love about the beach along with hearing live music at Slider's from our balcony and the short walking distance to popular area restaurants like Sliders, Cedar River Seafood, and for the ice cream lovers a Dairy Queen all in walking distance or a short ride to Cold Stone Creamery. After your treat, walk over to Hall's Beach Store to rent a bike to ride. Make sure during your trip you visit the downtown Historic district with all the quaint shops and Marina with wonderful restaurants nearby. Some of our favorites are The Crab Trap, 29 South or Brett's Waterway Cafe along with many other great choices downtown.

After soaking up summer fun and ready to wind down, you'll find a sitting area at top of stairs, a great spot for conversation or to snuggle up in to read a good book.

Downstairs is where you will find the hallway leading to the Master Bedroom with king bed and 37inchTV/DVD and spacious master bath with two vanities, jacuzzi tub, and glass/tile shower stall.

About Doug & Jackie Walker

We are a retired couple that love the area of Fernandina Beach on Amelia Island. We have both family and friends that live there on the Island and have been vacationing at it for over fifty years. We strive hard to make sure our guest feel at home as much as we do.

Doug & Jackie Walker purchased this townhome in 2011

Why Doug & Jackie Walker chose Amelia Island

We have stayed all over this island and looked long and hard before making a decision on what part of the beach we wanted to be at. The last home we stayed in before buying we notice it seemed as though the beach was closer to the homes. Sure enough, if you look at the map this area is closer...guess thats why they made the round-a-bout and Seaside Park a block from our home. For sure, it is a very popular area with a vacation vibe.

What makes this townhome unique

After searching for 4 years we finally found what we had been looking for. The brand new construction of this townhome was a delight with many extras like granite countertops, glass/tile baths,recessed and upscale lighting ,etc. after going into so many older homes and leaky ceiling condos..even though some were right on the beach, we preferred this home right across the street that had never been lived in and had all the features we were looking for and the area of the beach we wanted. It only took one look and we knew the short

steps across the street would be worth the walk to live in the

type of home we both desired...and we have never regretted it! It

is wonderful to be on the beach all day and to know our home is close enough to run home and have lunch and stroll back and

fourth with ease. In the evenings, we love being on the balcony

and listen to live beach music while sipping our favorite beverage

and enjoying the sounds of the ocean and the sea breeze, or the

benefit of walking steps down to a wonderful restaurant for a

walk on the beach by moonlight.. just some of our favorite things to do close by. And If we want peace and quiet while watching a

favorite tv show or movie all we have to do is close the sliding

storm windows and pull the blinds. It truly offers the best of both

worlds: excitement or relaxation.

Beautiful Luxury Condo with Great Oceanviews in a great area!

  • 5 of 5

We’ve rented many vacation homes over the years and this is one of the best! Jackie and Doug have done a wonderful job decorating the home and making sure we had everything we needed. This is one of the times where the home is actually BETTER then the photos!

Jackie was very attentive and helpful as we checked in, but then as any great hosts they’ve left us alone to enjoy the beautiful home (of course letting us know they were just a phone call away if we needed anything).

Getting to the beautiful beach is just a short walk across the street, the beach is wonderful and really quite this time of year (January).

There are a ton of restaurants within walking distance, and then with just a short drive there are even more great options.

There are many nice parks on the island which our young children have enjoyed.

We were especially grateful for all the beach toys, chairs, wagon, coolers etc. left in the garage for our use.

The kitchen was well equipped, which is a big plus! We've really enjoyed using the grill here as it’s too cold back home this time of year to cook out.

I highly recommend this condo if you’re looking for a beautiful place to stay! A Big Thank You to Jackie and Doug for opening up their beautiful home so we could enjoy it too!

Thanksgiving holiday

  • 5 of 5

Immaculate and well appointed home. Jackie and Doug have put together a wonderful home that has all the details and comforts of staying at a wonderful place at the beach. I have stayed in quite a few owner operated homes or condos over time and in different locations, and none have had the level of detail and thoughtful planning that this provides to your stay. The townhome is centrally located and convenient to all parts of Amelia Island.

Beautiful Home In Very Good Location

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week vacation on Amelia Island. The townhome was very clean and comfortable (it felt like a home away from home). It was equipped with everything needed to cook inside and out (charcoal and gas grills provided). A short trip over to the beach was made easier with provided wagon, chairs, and umbrella. Perfect location for enjoying the Historic Fernandina Beach area, walking to nearby Sliders Restaurant for dinner, with grocery store within a short distance. The owners were very gracious and delivered everything as advertised. Thank you, Jackie and Doug for a most memorable week!

Summer Vacation with the Family

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Amelia Island for more than 20 years with a large group of family members, and this has to be my favorite of all of the places we've stayed. The townhouse was beautifully furnished (just like the pictures!!), it was immaculate and had everything we needed. I have to admit that I was a little concerned that we would hear traffic noise, or noise from Slider's restaurant nearby, but it was extremely quiet, so no worries there! Even though the townhome is located across the street from the beach, the owners have a beach wagon available for use. It came in handy for transporting our cooler, chairs, umbrellas, etc., when we traveled down the beach to meet up with the rest of our family. The owners were very sweet, friendly, and helpful, as were the neighbors we met during our stay. We would definitely stay here again, and we highly recommend this townhome!

Many extras make this condo special!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Fernandina Beach! We have used HomeAway many times to secure accommodations, but the owners of this condo were particularly thoughtful about all the little "extras" which made our week at the beach so much more enjoyable! Coolers, a nice big beach umbrella, plenty of beach chairs and a sturdy wagon to haul it all the short trip (across the street) to the beach! The condo itself is beautiful and very well are very true to what you will see upon arrival. We were traveling with our 3 college-aged children and everyone had plenty of room to stretch out and relax. We enjoyed the beach by day and the quaint historic town of Fernandina in the evening. Lots of shops and several good restaurants....we particularly liked Timoti's Seafood Shack and The Surf. The owners made several good recommendations for places to eat and were very attentive by checking in with us during our stay to make sure we had everything we needed. We would definitely stay there again! Thanks, Jackie and Doug!

Car: recommended

Our Townhouse is very comfortable for a total of six (6) guest maximum and is located right across the street from the ocean with fantastic views and within steps to the Beach & Sliders Restaurant, Fernandina Beach's only oceanfront tiki bar and dining overlooking the beach with live music. You may want to stay home and enjoy the sounds from the privacy of our balcony with the comfort of a love seat and cocktail bar- height table with seating for two will certainly give you the feel of beach fun. You'll find additional shops, like bike and surf board rentals, galleries and restaurants nearby as well as many more in the beautiful old historic district downtown area with many more shops and restaurants like David's, 29 South, Cafe Caribou, Brett's on the Marina at the end of town to watch the sunset. Or many other popular restaurant and shops.

Our home was decorated and nicely furnished to be our 2nd home before we decided to rent it occasionally for others to enjoy it the way we do. It is not a big home, but perfect for smaller families like our own, being parents of only two grown sons it was just the size we needed. We feel our home is perfect for a family or friends of six. We truly take pride and enjoy the beach, relaxing and all the fun our jewel by the sea has to offer. We hope our guest love this place as much as we do and all the fun things to do on the Island. We feel the closeness of walking distance to a few Restaurants comes in great for dinner. And it's really wonderful to be in walking distance to Dairy Queen for a cold treat on a summer day!
