Ocean Place is located on beautiful Amelia Island which boasts some of the most beautiful beaches and golf courses in Florida. Ocean Place at Summer Beach is one of the most beautiful properties on the island. It is located in the exclusive gated community of Summer Beach Resort and is right next door to the world-renowned Ritz Carlton Amelia Island hotel and Spa. At the Ritz, you may enjoy fine dining, spa treatments, tennis, golf and shopping.
This beautiful two bedroom two bath condominium is located directly on the beach and is located on the 5th floor and provides spectacular views and incredible sun rises. This condominium was completely renovated in June, 2009 which included new paint, new furniture, new art work, new 40' flatscreen HDTV, new ceiling fans, new bathroom fixtures,lamps, plush new bedding, etc. We decorated our condo to be like a second home and not a 'rental condo', because we want our guest to feel like they are at home. Sleep with the doors open and listen to the crashing waves and see the moon from your bed. Then arise in the morning to the most beautiful sunrise over the Atlantic Ocean. You can sit out on the deck, and while having your morning coffee, watch the dolphins and sea gulls having their morning breakfast behind the shrimp boats.
Downtown in Fernandina, you will find the oldest seaport in the U.S. which has a rich heritage due in part to the fact that it has been under eight different flags. My family loves to stroll around downtown, especially at night among the lighted trees. We love to visit the quaint shops and wonderful restaurants. Especially fun also, is a horse and buggy ride and tour of historic Fernandina. Additionally, there are jet ski, parasails, and inland/offshore fishing charters available for hire. A short ferry ride can take you to beautiful Cumberland Island, the only national sea shore on the East Coast.
My husband's family has been vacationing in Amelia Island for about 35 years. After we got married and had children we began bringing our own family here on vacation. My children never wanted to go anywhere else. For several years we spent the entire month of July here. Our family's most treasured memories are of this Island. We decided that we wanted to own our own little piece of Heaven on Amelia Island, so we began looking around and finally settled on Ocean Place. We now have three almost grown boys, ages 20,18, and 16 and they still love going to Amelia Island to vacation, even after all of these years. There really is something for all ages to enjoy. We hope that you will love our home away from home as much as we do and we look forward to sharing it with you.
We absolutely loved the location next to the Ritz because we have three boys, who all love to golf and the golf course is located right next door. We love the bike/walking paths located throughout Summer Beach where our children like to ride their bikes and skateboards. There is always someone available for the children to play with, however, the beaches are not crowded at all.
Our unit is located on the fifth floor in the middle of the building which offers complete unobstructed views of the ocean in all directions for as far as the eye can see. There are two pools at Ocean Place to enjoy so you don't feel as though you have to fight for a spot at the pool. The condominium community is gated which gives us peace of mind about our security. We have free WI-FI service so you can connect to the outside world IF YOU CHOOSE TO, 3 televisions with cable and DVR service, with 200 channels included, and free long distance phone service to anywhere in the USA and Canada.
