|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
Cozy and comfortable, this newly remodeled, second story condo is full of light. It is beautifully decorated with new furniture and lovely paintings on the walls. And the panoramic view of the beach and ocean is just what the doctor ordered!
The kitchen is finely appointed for even the most gourmet of cooks. It now boasts a beautiful granite wraparound counter with stylish new swivel chairs with hydrolic height adjustment. You can converse with the cook, spin around to talk to someone on the couch, then turn again to take in the breathtaking vision of the ocean. New lighting, fans, kitchen cupboards and paint really make this condo a show place. And the ocean is seen from every angle....
The deck has a table with four comfortable chairs for relaxing dining pleasure......or sit back and take a snooze by the sound of the waves in one of two oversized teak rockers.
And if it's the sandy beach you crave, help yourself to the beach chairs and water toys located in the box on the deck. Full of beautiful shells, the fine white sandy beach is wide and uncrowded. And right in front of the condo is what is known by the locals as the 'hot zone' for finding ancient sharks teeth of all shapes and sizes.
Our condo is located just south of Main Beach, with the historic town of Fernandina Beach just minutes away. Enjoy great shopping, plenty of casual and/or fine dining and Fernandina's very own Farmer's Market every Saturday morning.
There is so much to do - from exploring Fort Clinch to touring the beautiful historic Victorian homes by horse and buggy. There is golf, tennis, hiking and biking. And exploring beautiful Cumberland Sound on a chartered sailboat or fishing boat is an experience not soon forgotten. We are one of the last beaches in the country that still allow horseback riding right on the beach.
We host the fabulous Concourse DeElegance every year, as well as the Fernandina Beach Annual Shrimp Festival. Other annual events include the Amelia Island Book, Jazz, Blues and Chamber Music Festivals - no wonder we love living here!
This is our second home, even though it's just minutes from our primary residence. If you need anything, we're only a phone call away, so be sure to give us a ring.
Oh...and well behaved dogs...let's talk.

Steve and I got married on the beach in front of the condo, September of 2008. The double rainbow just before the ceremony was a good omen! We love this place and hope you do too! It has a wonderful aura that we noticed the first time we walked in.
leslie ritter purchased this condo in 2003
Thank you for letting us stay at your place on the beach. We had a wonderful time and the place was just perfect for us. We spent most mornings in the rockers on the deck just watching the waves. It was great.
I think we knew we had a beach dog on our hands but we had no idea. Dinah the Wonder Dog woke up every morning at dawn and sat at the back door until I got up and let her out on the deck. As soon as we came out to sit, Dinah started lobbying to go down to the beach. She still doesn’t know what to make of the ocean and the big waves scare her a little but she would have stayed on that beach all day if we let her. As usual, she started making friends with all the people around us. As a result, we met your neighbors in C and B.
All in all a very relaxing vacation. Thanks again.
Good luck in the New Year.
This was the perfect get-away for me and my husband, and our pup Maya. We enjoyed watching the sunrise each morning while enjoying our coffee on the deck. So much to do: beach walks, biking/hiking Ft Clinch, shopping the historic district and sunsets on the harbor. The condo had everything we needed. It was very clean and comfortable! We are looking forward to our next visit!
If your looking for a clean, equipped condo on the beach without a lot of people to step over. This is what your looking for. We had a great week Leslie is very professional to deal with, I highly recommend her condo.
Unobstructed view of the sea oats, sand and dolphins and a short walk on your private board walk to the beach.
Enjoy your stay,
My husband and I booked Leslie's condo for a week at the beach. The condo was perfect for just us but there was plenty of room for another couple to join if you want a group trip. I did not do much cooking, but the kitchen is a great size for cooking. We enjoyed the comfortable furniture by lounging for a movie and slept very well.
The beach views outside and inside helped me fully enjoy my week away from my hectic work schedule. The direct access from our back deck was perfect for beach walks:) Jake' s favorite was star gazing from the deck! Amelia Island is beautiful and a new favorite spot for us. Don't forget to visit the historic downtown because it was perfect for dinner outings and drinks.
The condo is perfectly located on the on the beach while also being minutes from parks on the South and North of the island. Leslie was kind enough to allow pets in her condo so we will take her up on that with our next visit in the future. We would like for Mickey and Annabelle to experience the pet friendly beach AND town! I will recommend this condo to everyone:)
We decided last minute to make a trip to Amelia for a week of water therapy and sun. All of our usual places were book, so we decided to try something new. We Got Lucky! We found Leslie's great two bedroom one bath place right on the beach. We were upstairs and had a very nice deck overlooking the beach. The place was quaint and very clean. All the extras were included (beach chairs, sand toys, WiFi and cable) While the place was small it is all we needed for our family of 4 and our dog Shadow. We always try to eat in during the week and we found the kitchen very nice with all the equipment you need. The Kuerig Coffee maker was a big plus in the morning. We especially liked eating out on the deck and then sitting in the wood rocking chairs in the late evenings to soak in as much water therapy as possible. We will be back next year as the kids are sure there are still more shark teeth to find. Thank you Leslie for a great place in a great location!
We can't wait until the end of July when we get to stay here again. We stayed in November and had a wonderful time. If it's fancy, swanky you want then do not stay here, but if you want to feel at home this is the place. We have stayed in 7 places on the island and this is by far our favorite.
