About Lou Wagner & Sandy Mortensen

Lou and I love to travel, play tennis, golf, snow ski,hike, bike, play cards and board games. We love to visit our Amelia Surf and Racquet Club condo. Walk on the beach. Read. Golf. Looking out our window we don't see another building, just the ocean and the beach. We feel like we are on our own private island. It's our little home away from home.

Lou Wagner & Sandy Mortensen purchased this condo in 2007

Why Lou Wagner & Sandy Mortensen chose Amelia Island

Amelia is an undiscovered Island on the Northeast coast of Florida. Very little traffic. Wonderful restaurants. Great beach. Quiet and peaceful. Only 30 min from the Jacksonville airport, so it is easy to get to. It's a nice change of pace.

What makes this condo unique

We love having a great grocery store less than 5 min away. The town of Fernandina Beach has wonderful restaurants for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Our favorite is the Surf, about 5 min down the ocean road.

Very nice condo

  • 5 of 5

Overall we totally enjoyed our stay in the condo on Amelia Island. Accomodations are very nice, neat and clean. Generally it is very well equipped. One small glich with the water that the owner had no control over but he kept us fully informed. Will recommend this condo to others.

Very clean, well supplied and beautiful views.

  • 4 of 5

The only issue we had with the condo is that the screens didn’t slide in the doors. The weather was in the 70s when we got there and we wanted to sleep with the doors open. When we tried to slide the screens they both fell out of the runners. They were all rusted. We couldn’t just leave the doors open because the mosquitoes were too bad. Other than that it was a great stay.

Owner's Response: We too like sleeping with the sliding DOORS open which doesn’t require the screens to be moved so we are confused as to why you would move the screens in the first place. They operated just fine when treated gently when we were there in November????

needs a thorough cleaning

  • 1 of 5

I have been staying at the Surf and Racquet Club since the mid 80's and this is the first time I have ever left a bad review. There were many things unenjoyable about this stay but I would consider most things beyond owner or management control (such as external noise from public beach access). What has prompted me to write a review was the overall cleanliness of the room. I spoke with the front desk about this but was offered no more than a *we will look into it* dismissive answer. Which was quite disappointing because I have never had such a terrible stay and this was my honeymoon to make it worse. The floors were sticky. There was dust everywhere. There was mold in the air vents (we tried wiping them out but it did not help). The furniture smelled so bad that I had to spray everything down with febreeze just to able to stand it enough to stay in the room. Every single time we would walk into the room our sinuses would completely stop up and we would start sneezing. My husband had it the worst and could barely breathe anytime we were in the room due to allergic reactions to something. We took turns sleeping on the sofa because the bed was the most uncomfortable thing we have ever slept on and the allergic reaction was the worst in the bedroom. Also, there were just strange repairs throughout that need to be made (such as the screens being duct taped to the frames) that I feel made it very much so not worth the money paid for the stay.

Owner's Response: We have NO idea what happened to you. Check out all the other reviews. We have had 2 renters since who experienced none of the things you mentioned. The AC ducts were cleaned this summer. The duck tape (about 8” on one corner is real because we have found NO ONE who will come out and re-screen it). We have contacted our management company who is “on the property” to follow up. Sincerely yours, Lou Wagner
