Great location and owner!

  • 4 of 5

Our time at The Captain's House was gorgeous and peaceful. The condo was supplied and decorated nicely. It was also our first time in a pet friendly spot and it really was clean and did not feel like pets had been there. Jewel was very accommodating and communicative.

Great little condo

  • 4 of 5

This place was nicer than the pictures made it seem. We really enjoyed the little deck area, the beach view, and the perfectly sized kitchen. Parking was easy, and the beach is really just right there. Would definitely recommend.

Great Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to stay and the weather was perfect. This condo is on the ground floor, making the stay very enjoyable, as we are an older couple and it is nice not to have stairs to climb. We loved the view and easy access to the beach right out the back door. It is also handy to shopping and restaurants. This end of the beach is very quite you almost have the beach all to yourself. Loved our stay and hope to return very soon.

Fantastic location, on the beach, great price!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in a ground floor unit. It was a very nice condo and it is literally just feet away from the beach. This is one of the better locations that I have stayed in any of my trips to Fernandina/St. Mary's/Jacksonville. If you want to see and hear the ocean from your living room - this is the spot! It was easy to find, easy to get in, very comfortable to stay in and the owner was VERY nice. We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back for a longer visit the very next chance we get.

Great Weekend Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We decided to take a last minute trip to the beach for a long weekend and this was the perfect place to do it. The condo was very nice and right on the beach. Our dog and toddler enjoyed it too! Thank you so much for sharing your vacation home with us. We are already talking about booking for next year.

February, 2015 - Our Great Escape !

  • 5 of 5

Left Michigan 2 days before the 2015 freeze and arrived at Jewell's condo which was clean and right on Beach! Had a very nice month and Jewell & Renee are very caring hosts and everything was very comfortable. Condo is very comfortable and works! Weather was so-so but lots to do and had a great time exploring the area. Condo is well equipt and VERY comfortable and safe for an elderly couple and their dog. Thanks Jewell & Renee, and we might call to take a treasure boat ride with Renee!

About Jewel Allday

PETS WELCOME! Check out my Ocean Front condo CAPTAIN'S HOUSE at BEAUTIFUL Fernandina Beach/ Amelia Island, Fl. I ALLOW PETS. Built on the last dune and about 30 steps from the sliding glass door to the sand,you can't get much closer without sleeping on the beach . I chose this condo because it has, hands down, the easiest entry & parking in front with incredible ocean views. I enjoy working with & helping people. I have a lock box on the front door so you can come directly to the condo without having to meet someone at an office before closing time to pick up a key. My guests love that. Call or email me today about your next vacation.

Jewel Allday purchased this condo in 2006

Why Jewel Allday chose Amelia Island

Fernandina Beach/Amelia Island, Fl. has so many things for the whole family to enjoy while on vacation. Beautiful family & pet oriented beach on wide white sandy beach, fresh seafood restaurants, historic district, golf, putt-putt, wind & wave surfing, bicycling, historic Ft. Clinch State park, horse back riding, quiet old South Florida flavor, plus tons of other activities. There's something for every age. Come see us soon. You won't be sorry.

What makes this condo unique

Quiet area with large open parking lot,close to restaurants, walk only ap. 30 feet to white sandy beach from sliding glass doors. The most calming scenes from the ocean with sounds of the sea gulls & surf & soft ocean breezes. Views from kitchen/dining room & family area of the beach. You can't get any closer to the sand unless you sleep on the beach. Within walking distance to Main Beach, Sandy Bottoms restaurant, Ft. Clinch State Park or even downtown historic district. You won't be sorry you chose beautiful CAPTAIN'S HOUSE at Fernandina Beach/Amelia Island for your Florida Vacation. Contact me today to reserve yours. This condo is app. 1 mile from all shopping & restaurants plus old Historic Fernandina.
