About Walt

Originally from West Virginia, I now reside in GA with my 2 teenage sons. We looked in several areas of Florida and found just the right spot. My experience as a remodeling contractor allowed me to take on the major renovation needed to bring my beach villa/condo back to life. I hope you feel right at home here as do my boys and I.

I have always loved the beach since my first visit to Daytona at 2 years old, and the euphoria of hang gliding on the dunes at Nags Head at 14. Something about the ocean and beach renew my spirit. My favorite time is from 5PM till dusk, when sunbathers and beachcombers begin the exodus, leaving me to my own private ocean. Warm sand, cool breeze, lapping waves, setting sun, and the good lord above, calm my soul.

'...every little thing gonna be alright'

-Bob Marlie

Walt purchased this condo in 2004

Why Walt chose Amelia Island

We love the quiet beaches and tranquil setting beneath old growth live oaks of the maritime forest. What really impressed me is the friendly nature of the local residents and business owners. This area is rich in history, from the days of swashbuckling buccaneers anchored in the harbor and Historic Civil War era Fort Clinch to the wild horses of Cumberland Island, still roaming the beaches centuries after the Spanish Conquistadors abandoned them. Fernandina Beach competes with St. Augustine for bragging rights, each claiming to be 'the' oldest in the US. While St. Augustine was the economic and political capital for the Spanish King, Fernandina Beach was the hideout for black market operatives and thieving pirates who traveled up the St. Mary's River to avoid Spanish Authorities

What makes this condo unique

We love the private yard off the large back deck and the fountain pond out front. Our buildings convenient proximity to the pool is great when it's time for lunch, snack or drink. Our kids ride bikes and go to the playground in a safe setting. Now that they are teens, going to the beach solo or back to the condo is a breeze without worry about traffic or crowds.

Fun and Relaxing Week on Amelia Island

  • 5 of 5
This was a return visit so we were prepared for a lovely, well maintained rental property. The owner was very helpful and checked in by phone to ensure all was going well. The beach and pool are obvious attractions, and both are very pleasant and relaxing. In addition, we like the historic aspects of the island. We took High Tea at a historical spot in town, and took a boat excursion which provided lots of interesting historical and environmental information. Of particular interest was an evening, walking ghost tour which combined history, architecture and thoughts of the supernatural. Our teen-ager liked this! We had numerous trips to the fun shops in Fernandina Beach and found more good restaurants than we had time for. The owner gave us tips on good restaurants, a couple of which we would not have found on our own. True local flavor! You can be very busy or as laid back as you want at this location. With wi-fi, cable and a good kitchen for cooking, you can just hang out. Or you can walk out the door and choose an adventure for the day. Such a dilemma! This property is great for kids with a closet full of beach toys and supplies, and great for older kids who can settle in their room and walk to the pool/beach. The decor and sense of peace will appeal to adults. We look forward to returning to this property and recommend it highly!

lovely condo

  • 5 of 5
The complex was beautiful and also the condo. We really enjoyed our stay. Walt was a great guy to work with. He had all the little extra stocked in the condo. Beach was a little further than expected for 2 small children but we made it. :-)

Excellent stay

  • 5 of 5
Our family with three kids stayed here for a week and had a wonderful time. The condo is situated in a nice complex with a well-maintained pool and tennis courts. The beach is close and not too far - about 7 minutes walking. What else is there to say? The information provided in the property listing is complete and, as we can confirm now, also accurate.

Our family was very pleased with this unit! It was neat, clean, and nicely furnished. The unit was large enough for everyone to be in the kitchen/living area and not be crowded. The grounds, pool and tennis courts were very well cared for. The location is so convienent and a short walk to the beach. The beach carts and toys were supplied and great to have for our use. Walt was so nice and easy to work with. We will vacation here again!

Wonderful family vacation

  • 5 of 5
This was our first Family Vacation at this condo, and I must say we had a lovely experience. The location is super-convenient to the beach (very handy with small kids), and the condo amenities themselves (playground, pool) are very nice to have on hand.

The unit was clean and exactly as advertised - it worked well for our family of four + a grandpa. We really enjoyed our visit to Amelia, and especially recommend the Amelia Island River Cruise as a fun activity for visitors of all ages. As we were leaving for home, our four-year-old asked if we could "come back again next week"! :-) We will hopefully be able to have another stay in your lovely condo! Thank you!
