my condo-home is unique from most condo's --- it has several addtional windows that bring in lots of natural light - depending on the time of year you see the sun come up across our deck and the sun go down out our back windows

Mixed Review

  • 2 of 5

The property has a great location. The building is on the beach with a lovely pool.

Also NOTE this unit is NOT beachfront. The balcony has a faraway view of the ocean from the side of the building.

Upon arrival (albeit late pm so we were unable to contact management or owner that evening) the bed in the smaller bedroom had dirty sheets. There were no additional sheets or blankets in condo.

And the living room furniture is worn; the beds uncomfortable.

The hot water heater did not reliably deliver enough or very hot water. When letting both owner and manager politely know our concerns we were met with a less than apologetic attitude and overall annoyance and an attitude of blame.

Apparently someone looked into the hot water problems but were told no issue existed.

We will not return to this condo or building.

Owner's Response: This is the first bad review I have experienced in over 20 years of leasing my beach villa and it makes me sad as I try so hard to make the leasing process simple and affordable This review is INCORRECT my villa is DIRECTLY on the beach and has a view of the ocean the view is a side view and is a pretty & pristine view N0 where does it state that the view is a frontal view of the ocean and if the guest has questions or is unsure about the view it is good to ask me as I always want my villa to accommodate my guest needs ---ALWAYS I have been in Real Estate for over 35 years and never have I done anything but been helpful to my guest and considerate of their needs so the accusation of annoyance on my part is totally false ---that's just not the way I roll management lives on-site and also has an on-site office but obviously if u arrive in the late evening the manager may be sleeping but the lock box is right at the front door and guest can access the villa at any time There is a large plastic tub in the master bathroom closet that is full of additional linens at all times I have gone over my notes and management was notified as soon as the guest contacted me regarding the sheets/hot water heater Both issues were addressed immediately I was never notified about the sofa but will check it out asap and purchase a new one if necessary --I was down the first week in April and I did not notice it was worn but will make sure and check it out again in July I don't know what to say about the beds as I sleep well on the beds and never had a complaint I can honestly say my place is clean and bright and the complex is clean and is run professionally and we are proud of our villa ON the beach and I am so sorry but I fervently disagree with 100% of this review

Perfect Condo for our family beach vacation to Amelia Island

  • 5 of 5

My family and I ( 2 adults, 1 teenager, and 2 grade school kids) stayed at this condo for 3 nights after spending 4 days in Orlando. My wife and I figured we needed a "vacation from the vacation in Orlando". We desired something on the beach and with a pool and this condo fit the bill. Nancy was responsive to all inquires via email. We weren't quite sure what to expect from this condo but were pleasantly surprised when we entered.

The condo is nicely furnished and well organized. You can tell that there is thoughtfulness and effort put into the furnishings. We were provided with three trash bags as well as 2 dishwasher pods. There was also a bottle of laundry soap which was so helpful. These are small things but go a long way in my opinion (I didn't have to buy a box of trash bags or a whole container of dishwasher detergent/laundry soap for our 3 day stay). The kitchen is nicely equipped (my wife appreciated the standard coffee maker as she isn't a Keurig fan; I appreciated the blender for making drinks/smoothies for myself and the kiddos). We didn't cook that much as we chose to enjoy local restaurants, but had no issues cooking in the kitchen. Wifi worked well without issues. Access to beach and pool was fantastic. Just a short walk over the dunes to the beach. We really loved the water hoses at both ends of the walkway to the beach allowing you to wash the sand off of yourself and your stuff - great for the kids too... I also appreciate the shopping carts stored in the parking area allowing you to transfer your groceries into the cart and then take the elevator to you condo.

I would highly recommend this place for a stay on Fernandina beach. The owners take excellent care of this condo and we relished the time we had there.

All Around Fantastic place!!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect condo for our short fall break! We have traveled all over the world and you never know what your in for with a rental property. This went far above our expectations! Beautifully furnished condo on a gorgeous stretch of beach! Everyone at the condo was so friendly and helpful. Kitchen is very well stocked and so great to have some basic supplies there to start off! Loved the area and will rent this condo again for certain! Thank you Nancy for being SO helpful with our short notice booking!

Great Condo!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at the beach looking for warmer weather. The weather didn't always cooperate but helped us enjoy the condo even more! We have stayed in several condos and cabins and this one is at the top of our favorites list. We've never stayed in one that had a more equipped kitchen. Anything needed for cooking was there except the food! The staff was awesome and so friendly. It was so clean and comfortable. The ocean view from the deck and master bedroom was great. Nancy was wonderful and made me feel like a friend when booking the condo. Thank you so much for sharing your beach home!

Simply Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We shared this condo with my parents and our 12 year old son for 4 days, 3 nights in mid October. The grandparents took the 2nd bedroom and were delighted to have their own bathroom, We took the master bedroom and shared the space with our son and his service dog. Both a sofa sleeper (in the living room) and a blow up mattress was provided, but we had room in the master bedroom for a queen size futon mattress that we brought from home. Nancy was patient and accommodating with our special needs and the on-site manager was very friendly,. Our goal was to have quality family time, as we only get together once a year. This location was ideal, as it was away from the crowds, steps from the beach, very near the pier, and the pool was kept spotless. We spent hours flying kites and watching waves crash. Beach chairs, umbrellas and sand tools were all provided with the rental. We never ate out - the kitchen was equipped to handle all our meals. The common living space was big enough to talk, read, play board games and watch movies together. We also never went to tourist places, as we had plenty to keep us busy "doing nothing" right here. This was exactly what we were looking for, and within our budget as well.
