BRING YOUR FAMILY TO AMELIA ISLAND FOR A HOLIDAY!
Corporate guests are also welcome. I prefer that you contact me by e-mail, but, for a quick answer, call my cell phone.
Our roomy condominium is a relaxing getaway at the north end of Amelia Island. It's a short walk to the quiet beach, and only a bit farther to Main Beach, which has lifeguards, covered gazebos on the boardwalk, and an adjoining park with a children's playground, skate-boarding, basketball, and public restrooms.
The Fernandina Shores community backs up to the Fort Clinch property, so it's just a short bike or car ride to their beaches and fishing pier. Or, you can walk 3 miles north on the beach to the Fort Clinch pier and beach!
Our condo has 3 bedrooms, two full baths, and 2 small balconies. One balcony is directly off the dining area; the other one is a private space outside the master bedroom. Within the complex are tennis courts and a swimming pool for your use. After a morning in the sun, move back to a shady deck and enjoy your peek-a-boo view of the ocean!
Our apartment is fully furnished and equipped. The master bedroom has a queen-sized bed; the connecting bath has a walk-in shower. The second bedroom has two twin beds; the third bedroom has a queen-sized bed, and both share the hallway bath (with tub & shower).
For those who like to be connected, even on vacation, a high-speed internet connection is in the master bedroom, and there is free phone service (including U.S. and Canadian long distance) as well. Wireless service is also provided.
The living room has comfortable chairs for watching TV, or cozy places where you can curl up with a book. A large table in the dining area will give you room for long, leisurely meals or puzzle-solving evenings. There are games and books on the shelves, videos, DVDs, CDs and tapes nearby.
Amelia Island's beautiful beaches are perfect for sunning, relaxing, swimming, walking, shelling, and building sand castles. If you wish to be more active, go hiking, biking, fishing, birding, snorkeling/diving, boating, sailing, surfing, windsurfing, para-sailing, jet skiing, or shopping! Golf at one of a number of local courses; tour museums or historic sites, or visit Cumberland Island; try a new restaurant every night; play tennis or miniature golf. Brochures and a book listing these activities are provided.
Take a cruise up and down the Amelia and Nassau Rivers! Watch the sunset from the Fernandina Beach Marina. Go horseback riding on the beach! Go marsh kayaking! There are plenty of museums and cinemas for rainy-day amusement. There are plenty of antiques shops, too! You will find history and nature trails in nearby state parks including Fort Clinch State Park, Amelia Island State Park, and Talbot Island State Park. Or, just go to 'downtown' Fernandina Beach, get an ice cream cone, and watch the people!
It is quiet here, and relaxing. But Disney World and Sea World are less than three hours away!

A popular skate board park is located nearby, next to the basketball courts at Main Beach. A new water park is being constructed near the park and skate park. Amelia Island is the southernmost barrier island on the US Atlantic coast. This area in Florida's northeast corner has been named one of the top 12 vacation destinations by the National Trust for Historic Preservation. Amelia Island is also a great location for birding.
