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 sunrises. This condominium recently had a total renovation. 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, is a horse and buggy ride tour of historic Fernandina. Additionally, there are jet skis, para-sails, 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. We love knowing that out guests are here making memories to last a lifetime.
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
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.
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.
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.
Beautiful, just-renovated oceanfront unit. Owner was great to work with, very responsive to our reservation request. Kept us well informed throughout the process from booking to arrival to departure. Amazing attention to details and Incredible ocean views from living room and master bedroom. We lacked for nothing! Don't stay anywhere else on Amelia Island!
This condo on the beach was exactly what we were looking for. The best things about it were 1. The FULLY available kitchen (toaster, blender, mixer, lots of pots and pans and utensils). We stayed 7 nights and ate all our meals in the condo that we prepared in the kitchen. 2. Plenty of room (husband, wife and two boys ages 22 and 24). Even though the condo was fairly small, the second bedroom was behind two closed doors so when we went to sleep early, we couldn't hear the boys at all in the other bedroom watching a movie or talking. 3. THE VIEW. We hardly left the condo for the seven nights we were there. From the master bedroom, I lay in bed every morning and watched the sun rise over the ocean just by opening my eyes. 4. Comfortable furniture. The beds were very comfortable and so was the living room furniture. A large round table in the dining area was great for playing games. 5. Book, movie and game selections at the condo were nice to have. Other wonderful features: master bath has two sinks with lots of counter space. The balcony over looking the beach has a table for four and two other comfortable patio chairs and is completely private. We watched turtles every day from our balcony. The two times we did go out, we went to Fort Cinch State Park and saw lots of armadillos. We can't wait to stay here again.
We had our annual girl trip at your lovely condo. Your place made us feel so welcome and at home. Balcony and view were beautiful. We loved every minute and hope to make a return trip.
We had a fabulous family vacation here on Amelia Island. The condo was exactly as shown in the photos. Spacious, clean, nicely furnished and well stocked. The beach was amazing; as was the view from the condo. Jan was a gracious host. She was very helpful from booking through arrival and quickly answered any questions we had. The welcome package sent ahead of time was a great help as this was out first time coming to Amelia. We couldn't have asked for a better experience!
My sisters and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The condo was very, very nice! The view from the balcony was awesome! We had everything we needed and more! We even enjoyed the Tropical Storm the night before we left! Thank you so much for such a relaxing and lovely vacation. We would definitely recommend this property to everyone! Great hospitality, comfort, and just all around wonderful time!
