This condo directly fronts to the beach with view to lawn and pool below, exactly as pictured in the photos. It has a perfect floor plan with a room-wide beautiful ocean view from the living room, which includes a fold out sofa, flat screen TV/blue ray/ethernet cable/wifi. The kitchen, with W/D and all normal appliances, is open to the living area with dining table adjacent. The large bedroom has full glass door/windows to the ocean and a full width enclosed balcony with lounges. Utility closet is stocked with beach chairs, umbrellas, fishing gear, fins, etc., all that you would find in an owners unit. There isn’t a thing you could want for your vacation that is not there. The owners have thought of everything, including a perfectly organized binder filled with things to do and restaurant menus. And the condo is very well maintained and immaculately clean. The owners are so helpful and determined to make your vacation great.
The condo is in a beautiful area. A boardwalk passes the pool to dunes and beach. Nice walk up dune road or beach to the Ritz Carlton. A mile south to our favorite lunch/dinner/takeout spot (Gourmet Gourmet). The Old Town section of Fernandina Beach with historic buildings, tourist shops and restaurants is conveniently located a few miles away. Also conveniently located is a shopping area with the usual Wal-Mart and other stores for residents.
Don’t miss the Fort Clinch State Park at the north end with the well-preserved Civil War fort, as well as nature trails, etc. Take the 45 minute drive to St. Marys, GA to get the 9AM boat to Cumberland Island National Seashore another barrier island with old Carnegie family homes and wilderness area. Take the 5-hour NPS van tour to see all of it and get an expert explanation of the fascinating island history and see the wild horses.
Great place to visit and this condo made for a most pleasant home base. You won't be disappointed if you choose it for your vacation.
