Amelia Island Condo Rental Photos and Description

Beautifully re-modeled Ground Floor 2 bedroom 2 bath condo with split bedroom floor plan and over-sized covered and furnished deck accessible from both living room and master bedroom. Forget the stairs! Bring the kids to our gorgeous family-friendly home, steps from the pool and only a few minutes stroll from the most wonderful beach.

Our condo sleeps five, and is primarily set up for 2 adults and up to 3 children. It is beautifully furnished with the family in-mind and comes with a 42' flat panel TV in the living room and a 19' flat panel TV in the master bedroom. Enjoy free high-speed wi-fi internet, cable TV and free nationwide long-distance telephone. We also have a stroller, booster chair, high-chair, porta-crib, kiddie plates and accessories. So there is no need to pack all that extra stuff that you usually have to drag through the airport or pack into your trunk.

Amelia Landings Beach and Raquet Resort is surrounded by tall shade trees and offers peace and quiet close to all the amenities you and your family might want. We love our home there and look forward to sharing it with other families who want to explore Amelia Island and make those memories that stay with you long after your vacation has finished. You can leave the island but the island never really leaves you.

If you are searching for that perfect place for your family's vacation, that offers everything you might need and so much more at an exceptional value, then we invite you to come stay at our home-away-from-home and make it your home-away-from-home. (City of Fernandina Beach License # 3539).

About Audrey McCarthy

We have been married since 2004 and currently have four young children (3 boys and 1 girl). We have lived in several (way too many) states and are delighted to have finally discovered Amelia Island. Our goal is to move here permanently once we retire. Once you visit you will see why!

Audrey McCarthy purchased this condo in 2012

Why Audrey McCarthy chose Amelia Island

We first fell in love with Amelia Island during a family vacation in January 2011. That short trip changed the course of our lives to a degree insofar as we decided we wanted to make Amelia Island our home after spending only 3 days here. We changed careers in order to allow us to spend more time here and bought our first home near the beach in March 2011. We quickly settled in as part-time residents and made several friends at Amelia Landings. We love the almost 'secret-garden' location, completely hidden from the roadway by tall shade trees and only a very short stroll to the beach and shops. When the opportunity arose to become owners in the Landings we felt that the opportunity was too good to pass up. Our favorite thing about the Landings is the private footpath that leads to the beach and the huge deck on the back of our ground-floor condo and the great layout for having company over or just spending time with the family. We love not having a stairs!

Also, it's only a short drive to all that beautiful Old Town has to offer and there are two great grocery stores, mini-golf, ice cream, post office and antique stores within walking distance.

What makes this condo unique

Location, location, location... and a truly a family-friendly home that will allow you and your family to unwind and explore everything the island has to offer, without compromising that hard-to-find peace and quiet. This condo really has it all.

Best Beach Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We had an amazing vacation in this beautiful condo! We are a family of 3 but this condo would easily and comfortably suit 5 people. We loved the screened on porch for peaceful breakfasts and quiet evenings. The beach was beautiful as always. The best part for us was the pool for our daughter this year. There is a sweet young lady on the condo complex that teaches swimming lessons and we had the privilege of meeting her on our 2nd day. Our daughter was swimming like a little mermaid by the end of the week and hasn't stopped since we got home! We hope to continue to spend our summers in your lovely home! Thank you for opening your home to us!

EXACTLY what this SAHM and her family needed. The condo was super easy to find, super easy to get into, and clean and quiet. Ahhhh. THEN you find the "secret path" (makes it more fun for our 6- and 2-year old, you see) to the beach. THEN you discover that the on-site pool is also clean and pretty gosh-darn handy. THEN you think you might toodle over in your vehicle to this Fernandina downtown you heard about and get yourself some fudge and ice cream (oh-kaaay, the kids can have ice cream too. But no fudge.) The next morning, you sit on a cushioned chair on your shaded porch, drinking some coffee, while your kids wake up and enjoy being alive and getting to stay in their PJs as long as they want. No where you have to be, no where you have to go. Ahhhhhh. Oh, I almost forgot. On one of your trips back from the beach, to opt to take the sidewalk instead of secret path and just "happen" to have found a $5 so you can get yourself some ice cream from DQ. Oh-kaaaay, the kids can have some too. :) Heaven forbid you drive the 15 minute drive south to ride horses on the OCEAN. (Kelly Seahorse Ranch). Yes, yes, kids. We can WALK to Sliders tonight for supper so you can play in the outdoor playset while we adults have adult drinks. This time, no you CANNOT have any! To anyone reading this review: please stay here and do yourself and your traveling party a favor, okay? Audrey and Colin (condo owners) are freaking awesome and will help and give you all the info you could ever want about the property and area. SUper kid-friendly condo. Toys, strollers, high chairs are at the ready should your traveling party require them. We sure did and loved the lighter packing job we had to do on our end. Stay here. Really.

Perfect condo!

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay at the Amelia Landings condo! The location, the condo itself, the grounds of the condo were just beautiful. Our two kids (4 years and 8 months) had a ball. The walk to the beach was a little long, but they were in the process of repairing the walk way while we were there.The condo really did have everything that we needed for your kids,including our 8 month old. It made things so much easier not having to take all that stuff with us. The pool was beautiful. Sliders Grill is a great place to have lunch. We also loved Murray's Grill and Sonny's Bar-B-Que. The location of the condo could not be better. The owners were so fantastic to work with! We will be back! Thank you so much for sharing your little piece of a paradise.

The "Escape" for Easter Holiday

The "Escape" for Easter Holiday
  • 5 of 5
This was a family mini vacation for husband, daughter, 4 year old grandson, and myself. From first viewing the photos of Amelia Island Condo and going thru reserving and arriving, everything was done very smoothly. When driving into the condo grounds, peace and tranquilty showered all of us. Stepping into the condo was the paradise we were looking for to celebrate Easter. Old Town Fernandina, restaurants, beach, ocean, shell collecting, and more are stored as very fond memories; and we can't wait to return.

Loved It!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for a long weekend and loved it. The location and condo was perfect. There are many upgrades and the condo is so CLEAN. Very well maintained. I felt like I was at home. The pool was out of order but the beach was wonderful and only a short walk away. We will be staying here again very soon I hope!!!

Our ground-floor condo is located close to all of the best that Amelia Island and Fernandina Beach have to offer. Amelia Island offers the climate and friendliness that you would expect from North Florida without any of the crowded hustle and bustle associated with your typical beach towns. The island is a well-kept secret among those who have discovered it for themselves, from the wonderful Fort Clinch only a three minute drive away to the spell-binding boating and eco-tours that leave regularly from the town's marina, a 5 minute drive away. After you enjoy your morning coffee and juice you can take a leisurely 3-4 minute stroll to one of the most beautiful beaches you will ever see. Boasting over 13 miles of golden sand dunes, you will never grow bored with your walks or collecting the most amazing shells, or occasional sharks' teeth. Amelia Island was made for relaxing, and is especially suited to the family vacation.

Although the drive from Jacksonville Airport to your front door typically takes less than 30 minutes...you might as well be in a different world. It is hard to believe that you can be driving down the island's winding lanes with Spanish moss hanging from the oak trees that cover the road, in such a short distance from a major airport. Of course this also means that if you feel like a day at the AMAZING Jacksonville Zoo...you can be there with the kids in about 25 minutes...not bad considering it feels more like you have changed planets. Of course, the antiquing on Amelia Island is second to none and the quaint stores that give 'Oldtown' such a wonderful ambiance will tempt you to while away hours at a time browsing at their treasures.

But, if you feel the need, there are several outlet malls in Jacksonville that are well worth a visit on those rare occasions when the rain falls.
