BRIGHT, HAPPY, LOTS OF NATURAL LIGHT. 'There's something about this house that has good vibes' is a comment we have received from previous guests. We are certain you will agree when you stay here. We built this house a few years ago on a very quite cul de sac with every amenity that we wanted in our dream beach home. We came here to live with nature and found a piece of paradise like no other place on earth.
This home is one of the few free standing homes in the Plantation with its own private pool. Our house is located on the quiet side of the Plantation with very little traffic and no noise. An easy walk or ride on your very own golf cart to the beach.
The beautiful Ritz Carlton is less than five minutes away. Here you may enjoy several fabulous restaurants, music on certain nights for dancing and enjoying a cocktail, along with valet parking.
This is the PERFECT family house(toddler alarms on all doors). All main rooms on the lower level of the Nantucket-style house face the pool, which provides a calm oasis with sounds of the pool's waterfall right outside the doors. It is also perfect in the winter for those who want to escape the cold of our northern neighbors. A gas fireplace in the living room provides a homey ambiance. One will find a canopy of live oaks throughout the entire plantation. The sun rises over the beautiful Atlantic and sets over the gorgeous marsh on the opposite side.
The home, tastefully furnished and designed for comfort to create the perfect vacation environment, includes: approximately 2,800 SF with 3 bedrooms and 4 full bathrooms; master bedroom on the first floor with a king bed, two reading chairs, new flat screen TV, and a large walk-in closet with iron and ironing board; master bathroom with dual vanities, soaking tub and large separate shower (hair dryers provided); the 2nd bedroom on 2nd floor with two double beds and its own separate bathroom; the 3rd bedroom on second floor with twin beds and its own separate bathroom; living room overlooks the pool with a 36' television with a surround sound system; study/media room and adjacent full bath also overlooks the pool. The study, if needed, has a futon which can be used as a 4th bedroom with adjoining full bath; ceiling fans in living room, study, side porch and all bedrooms; whole house sound including speakers on the lanai and around the pool; fully equipped gourmet kitchen with bar; dining room with table that seats 8 people; large laundry room with washer, dryer and laundry sink; separate outdoor shower; pool with privacy fence. Sit on the lanai, relax in the hammock in the arbor or dine poolside while listening to the soothing sounds of music and the waterfall. On the opposite side of the house close to the kitchen is another private courtyard for grilling on the gas grill. All linens and beach towels are included.
Also provided are a strap-in highchair / booster seat, & pac and play. Extremely large master closet off master bedroom can accommodate the pac and play.
New cruiser bikes, child's bike, big wheel, beach chairs, beach umbrella, boogey boards, children's sand and pool toys are also there for your enjoyment. We have recently added a new golf cart. Also added are two kayaks, oars and life vests also for your convenience and enjoyment on Red Maple Lake (just a few yards from the house) and at Walker's Landing.
Amelia Island has recently built a fabulous new 'family bike path' which stretches for miles and miles. Should you need more bikes than we provide, extra bikes are available for rent.
High speed wireless internet is available throughout the house. Two separate working desks are for your convenience, one in rear hall and another in the study which may be closed off for privacy.
A new addition to the Plantation is a miniature golf course. Segway tours are available (really fun!). Pamper yourself at the Spa, have lunch and ice cream by the pond at Marche Burrett, enjoy the new Pizzeria, nature center, wonderful shopping and PLAE--our favorite restaurant...all in the Village within walking distance. The newly renovated Veranda is two blocks from the house.

We are an active couple who live in Athens,Georgia. Kim is an attorney and Sheryl is an interior designer. We have two children, Courtney who is married to Jason, an attorney in Atlanta, and Chad who lives in Nashville. We have a precious five year old grandson and a four month old granddaughter. We adore Amelia Island but are not able to get there as much as we would like; therefore, we would like to share our comfortable house with you.
We visited Amelia many times before we built our home. We have both always wanted a pool, which we were able to have. This is a fabulous family house where we enjoy special times and holidays with our children and grandchildren and also many friends. We are unable to get to Amelia as much as we love it; therefore, we would like to share it with others and hope they enjoy it as much as we do.
The peace and quiet of our area and the soothing sound of the waterfall at the pool are a few things we really enjoy. We love to be able to walk to the beach and the Village. Watching sunsets at Walker's Landing are also very enjoyable. Actually, there is nothing we don't enjoy at Amelia!!
