Northeast Florida Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Ocean Place is located on beautiful Amelia Island which boasts some of the most beautiful beaches and golf courses in Florida. Ocean Place at Summer Beach is one of the most beautiful properties on the island and is located in the exclusive gated community of Summer Beach Resort right next door to the world-renowned Ritz Carlton Amelia Island hotel and Spa. At the Ritz, you may enjoy fine dining, spa treatments, tennis, golf and shopping.

This beautiful two bedroom two bath 5th floor condominium is located directly on the beach and provides spectacular views and incredible sun rises. This condominium was recently renovated which included new paint, furniture, art work, (3) 46' flatscreen HDTVs, new ceiling fans, bathroom fixtures, lamps, carpet, appliances, plush bedding, etc. Our condo truly does feel like a second home rather than 'rental condo', because we want our guest to feel like they are at home. Sleep with the doors open and listen to the crashing waves and see the moon from your bed. Then arise in the morning to the most beautiful sunrise over the Atlantic Ocean. You can sit out on the deck, and while having your morning coffee, watch the dolphins and sea gulls having their morning breakfast behind the shrimp boats.

Downtown in Fernandina, you will find the oldest seaport in the U.S. which has a rich heritage and has been under eight different flags. My family loves to stroll around downtown, especially at night among the lighted trees and visit the quaint shops and wonderful restaurants. Especially fun also, is a horse and buggy ride tour of historic Fernandina. Additionally, there are jet ski, parasails, and inland/offshore fishing charters available for hire. A short ferry ride can take you to beautiful Cumberland Island, the only national sea shore on the East Coast.

About Jan Barry

My husband's family has been vacationing on Amelia Island for about 40 years. After we got married and had children we began bringing our own family here on vacation. My children never wanted to go anywhere else. For several years we spent the entire month of July here. Our family's most treasured memories are of this Island. We decided that we wanted to own our own little piece of Heaven on Amelia Island, so we began looking around and finally settled on Ocean Place. We now have three grown boys, ages 25, 23, and 20 and they still love going to Amelia Island to vacation, even after all of these years. There really is something for all ages to enjoy. We hope that you will love our home away from home as much as we do and we look forward to sharing it with you.

Jan Barry purchased this condo in 1998

Why Jan Barry chose Northeast Florida

We absolutely loved the location next to the Ritz because we have three boys, who all love to golf and the golf course is located right next door. We love the bike/walking paths located throughout Summer Beach where our children like to ride their bikes and skateboards. There is always someone available for the children to play with, however, the beaches are not crowded at all.

What makes this condo unique

Our unit is located on the fifth floor in the middle of the building which offers complete unobstructed views of the ocean in all directions for as far as the eye can see. There are two pools at Ocean Place to enjoy so you don't feel as though you have to fight for a spot at the pool. The condominium community is gated which gives us peace of mind about our security. We have free WI-FI service so you can connect to the outside world IF YOU CHOOSE TO, three 46' HDTV televisions with cable and DVR service, with 300 channels included, and free long distance phone service to anywhere in the USA and Canada.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Once again, our month-long stay at the Barry's Ocean Place beach home was an exceptionally pleasant experience. This was the second time we've spent a winter vacation here, and everything was just perfect, as we expected it would be. Jan has provided everything her guests could possibly need in making this a comfortable and cozy place. It feels like a home away from home. The view from the balcony is spectacular, and the weather allowed for many relaxing hours enjoying watching the surf roll in -- as well as quite a few surfers riding the waves. We are definitely planning another return visit, hopefully next December-January.

We were "hooked" and we'll "sea" you again!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for the sweet hospitality shown to us, we felt as if we were staying at a friend's condo instead of a rental! All the attention to detail from the information packet sent to our home to the thoughtful extras made our trip enjoyable and comfortable. We will definitely be back!

Thank you so much for sharing your condo with my family. We really enjoyed our time at the beach. The condo was very nice and clean. I would recommend this condo if anyone is looking for a relaxing get away.

The best on Amelia Island

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Fernandina for several years and have rented quite a few condos and this is the best, hands down. This year was our third year to rent this condo. It is beautifully decorated, comfortable and convenient to the beach, restaurants and stores. The other two big pluses are that is is immaculately clean and Jan is a jewel. Jan is easy to work with and gives you her cell phone number and her cleaning person's name and number in case of any problems, which we have never had. The beach is right there and being on the fifth floor, you have a wonderful panoramic view of the beach. The bed is very comfortable as are the chairs and sofa in the living room. The kitchen has everything you would need. We would not consider staying anywhere else.

If you are considering a condo in this area, look no further, this one is a true winner!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best week of relaxation, with beautiful views and the best accommodations. From booking this rental, to the pre-packet (mailed to our home) that was loaded with tons of info on the area to arriving at the condo with a warm thoughtful host gift with a personal note from the owner, we knew we had made the best selection for our vacation. The condo was very well kept and extremely clean! It is beautifully decorated while helping you feel like you are at your home away from home. The balcony is spacious and the view is outstanding! It was our favorite spot to read, eat and nap! The king bed is the only bed we used and is was extremely comfortable. The linens and towels were top of the line. It was nice to have the soaps, shampoo etc. as well. The pool and beach are easily accessible to the unit. There was a plumbing problem on one of the days that we were there and the owner got a plumber to come that day and take care of the issue immediately. It is one of those life things that happens, but I really appreciate an owner taking responsibly to make sure that their renters are taken care of so quickly not to inconvenience their renters. I would not hesitate to rent from this owner of rent this condo again! If you are considering a condo in this area, look no further, this one is a true winner!

Perfect Beach Get-Away

  • 5 of 5

This rental was the perfect beach get-away. The condo is beautifully decorated. Kitchen well-stocked. Patio gives fabulous views of the ocean with afternoon shade - perfect after a day filled with sun. Lots of golf nearby. Sidewalks leading throughout the island right outside of the condo - great for taking a run / walk / or bike excursion. Right next to Ritz which made for an easy dinner location. The access to the beach from this condo could not have been better or easier. Closet stocked with all kinds of beach equipment. As people who rent VRBO all the time I have to say that Jan is one of the nicest, easiest people we have ever dealt with. Much thanks for a fabulous week.

Outstanding and relaxing-Perfect get away

  • 5 of 5

This property will be just what your looking. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property. Right on the beach with numerous activities to engage it. It is the perfect place to get away, relax and enjoy the comforts of your own home, a natural view of the sunrise overlooking the Atlantic.

My sons and I enjoyed the spacious living areas and full compliment of amenities i.e. washer dryer, kitchen, swimming pools and access to the beach when ever you wanted. We had an blast and so will you. The owner was very helpful, though she didn't need to intervene much. Smooth processing, getting checked in and out was really effortless.

We will definitely visit again and highly recommend it to all of you.
