Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Come to the exclusive Amelia Island! This is the premium place to be! You're close enough to the action, yet able to retreat to enjoy the ambiance of this pristine and historic island. I've been renting my own property since 2004. Rent with confidence from the owner!

This freshly painted condo features two bedrooms, two baths, and a fourth floor corner unit that has the most awesome views of this exclusive section of Amelia Island's beach. We've just completed a kitchen remodel with new cabinets, granite and a bar. Our balcony, unlike others, is an end unit- providing unobstructed views to the North, Oceanfront, and vast view to the South. Your only constraint is your own vision.

Sip your morning coffee on the private balcony while incredible sunrises provided the backdrop for shrimp boats and porpoises. Our condo's panoramic view of the vast blue ocean and broad sandy beaches will keep you coming back here again and again. Being only steps away to the Ritz Carlton, you will enjoy the same beautiful beach as this world famous resort without the price! If you have never been to this island, you are in for a magnificent experience.

Enjoy an uncrowded, breathtaking seascape from the dining area featuring large picture windows that offer an expansive view of the beach. It is also the perfect spot for using our telescope. The master bedroom features a king size Wesley Allen iron bed, new 42' flat screen panel LCD TV, and a beautiful beach vista as well. The guest bedroom has two queen beds with coastal bedding and its own 32" flat screen TV complete with DVD/VCR player. The living room has a new sofa and love seat. The entertainment center sports a 46 ' LED TV, Blu-Ray DVD player, a Bluetooth Stereo system, and over 40 movies available for your use. You will love checking your email using your technology on the comfortable balcony. We just added a Wifi extender to maximize effectiveness.

This gated complex has two sparkling pools overlooking the ocean and four clay tennis courts free for your use on a 24 hour basis. The fully equipped kitchen with a side beach view also has a new full-sized washer and dryer.

Centrally located, our condo is a three to five minute beach

walk to the world famous Ritz-Carlton where casual and fine dining is available. The picturesque village of Fernandina, a 10 minute drive, is rich in history and is sure to satisfy all ages. Our island boasts wonderful restaurants, unique shopping experiences, antique shops, and a wealth of activities to explore. Don't procrastinate... We have many repeat guests so reservations tend to book early.

About Medea Sapp Shuman

I love the ocean and enjoy sharing my condo with others. I try to give an much information to guests as possible to enable them to have a wonderful, stress free vacation. I am a Christian, and have encountered many wonderful people over the years through my rental. My family has made so many wonderful memories here. I always feel blessed by God when I reflect on time spent here. I grew up vacationing on this beach as a little girl with my parents. It is close to my home and we love the island. I retired after 30 years in public education and I went back to work recently for the Georgia Department of Education. I hope to permanently retire to the island someday and just relax in the sand, write a book, and listen to the waves.......

Medea Sapp Shuman purchased this condo in 2003

Why Medea Sapp Shuman chose Northeast Florida

As the owner and I want you to be comfortable with your booking. You can relax when you book with me. I understand that when you work, you want a stress-free getaway. Our condo is kept perfectly clean and exceptionally maintained. I am delighted to provide my personal favorites/recommendations so you can experience the island. Unlike real estate rentals, we come frequently to inspect It and add those things that make a vacation easy and memorable. The area is so pristine and the views inspire me each time I'm here. Don't neglect the off season. You will be pleasantly surprised how mild and lovely it is in the Fall and Winter.

What makes this condo unique

In my condo you feel like you've been to the beach just admiring the views. You don't even have to get sandy if you don't want to! This is especially nice for the elderly that just want to sit and relax. The views are amazing! If you so desire, enjoy a nice long walk on an uncrowded beach to renew your faith and clear your mind. In our kitchen you are going to find lots of money saving items that we keep stocked for your use. My husband and I both love to cook so we eat on the balcony frequently by candlelight. There are also tons of great restaurants on the island. If shopping is on your radar, there are many eclectic, unique shops on the island- especially on Centre Street.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Medea: I just wanted to let you know that we received your card today with the returned cheque enclosed (damage deposit).



Our family vacation in your condo last month was wonderful in every respect. We loved the location, and the accommodations suited our needs perfectly. All of your e-mails and additional information were very helpful in making our vacation a huge success. Thank you so much for everything. We will not hesitate to recommend you to any of our friends that are considering a stay in Florida.



Best wishes, Doug

Beautiful Views!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a great condo this was for our family! We were a family of 3 including a 10 year old and a set of Grandparents. The views from this unit are unbelievable! The beach can be seen from the master, the dining room table, and the living room area. So basically everywhere but you cannot beat an ocean view from the dining room table!!!! Even when it rained, we loved the views and were always passing around the binoculars with constant boats and dolphin to watch. It was extremely clean and there was plenty of room. We enjoyed Boogie Boarding, looking for shells, discovering turtles under the walkover, the Nature Center at Amelia Island Plantation along with Pizza from the pizza place there, many Putt Putt courses around and dining at Peppers, The Crab Trap and Tasty's. Loved communicating with this kind and organized owner!! We hope to return to this wonderful and relaxing condo!!!

May Vacation 2017 - Amerlia Island

  • 5 of 5

We, my wife and I, had the pleasure to staying at Medea's condo for a week in early May 2017. The condo was exactly as described and more. It is in a perfect location, no crowds, close to grocery stores, restaurants and the historic area is only 10 minutes away with tons of places to shop and eat.

We took advantage of the Ritz and Omni restaurants during our stay and ate at several places in the historic area of Fernandina Beach. We took a day trip to St. Augustine and toured around the historic area and took two river excursions on the boat tour and the Backwater Cat adventure! I highly recommend taking advantage of all that Fernandina Beach has to offer. There is a large notebook of menus and things to do for you to review and a selection of "beach worthy" books, which my wife took advantage of during our stay.

The condo has everything and everything is in great working order. There are beach chairs, floats, umbrellas for your use while there. Everything was clean and orderly. The location was right on the beach and having a corner unit was exceptional as there was always a breeze and an almost 180 degree view of the beach. Medea was extremely helpful before our arrival and provided all the specific information needed for a great arrival process and she offered her assistance while there, if needed.

The weather was great while there and this property fully met our needs and made for a great trip. It will easily accommodate another couple and a room for children if space is needed.

In summary, I highly recommend this property and the property owner. We will definitely plan another trip to Amelia late this year or next year. We went at the perfect time, no crowds at the beach or in town and the weather cooperated completely.

Owner's Response: I am so totally blessed! When I read comments like yours I feel so grateful for my blessings. I appreciate the lovely coastline and the views that my condo provides for my guests. I strive to make my condo feel like home with all the little things that make a vacation go from good to great. I am so thankful that you appreciated my efforts. Please return anytime. I consider it the ultimate compliment when I have return guests. Take care and God bless. Medea

Wonderful Condo

  • 5 of 5

The condo was a wonderful retreat on Amelia Island, located on the south side from the main roads. The beach views described in the post were even better in person. The condo had all the comforts of home that is well equipped for up to six. The weather our week there was too cold to be on the beach or the pool (which looked nice) but we were able to explore the island and relax in the wonderful condo. I would recommend Fernandina for audits only, as this seems like a location that didn't have anything that would interest kids or teens if you can't go to the beech.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your compliments. I agree, the pictures do not do justice to the beautiful views! I'm sorry the weather was unseasonably cool. It has been a strange season nationwide! I also agree that Amelia Island is not the Spring Break haven (like Panama City or Daytona) that some teens enjoy. There are lots of other activities that I wish your teen had enjoyed- fishing, hunting for sharks teeth, Fort Clinch reenactments, skateboard park, multiple putt putt courses, the zoo, Cumberland island tour, etc. Perhaps you can return some day and do a little more exploring. It is always my honor to host repeat guests! It is the ultimate compliment. Take care and God Bless, Medea

Beach Balcony Bliss

  • 5 of 5

As a corner unit, the condo offered the benefit of an extra wide view of the ocean, complete with a stunning sunrise every morning. It was clean, well-appointed, and comfortable. The owner was easy to work with and thorough with instructions and suggestions on what to do and where to eat. (She has a LARGE binder of menus, activities, etc.) The complex is quiet and only a short drive to restaurants, etc. Our grown kids were has happy as we were.

Owner's Response: I so appreciate your comments! I have found that many guests love that notebook! Just this week we were down at the island collecting the latest menus. The sunrises are so spectacular that even a sleepy head who manages to see one will stumble out of bed to see the next one. I am blessed beyond measure to own the condo and consider my guests as an additional treasure. Happy New Year!

Perfect relaxing long weekend

  • 5 of 5

This adorable condo had the most spectacular view of the ocean from just about every room. The beds and couch are really comfortable...Just like home! Just loved every minute of our stay, and would stay again in a heart beat!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write your review! It is very meaningful to me when my guests do so. I want each guest to feel at home and strive to provide all the little things that most owners don't think of providing. I am thrilled that you would return and hope you can do so soon. Fall is a special time on the island. The temperatures are mild and the sunsets are amazing. Please contact me directly for savings on your next stay!
