Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 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.

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 Thomasville bedding and its own 36 ' flat screen TV complete with DVD/VCR player. The living room has a comfortable queen sofa bed and sports a 46 ' LED TV, Blu-Ray DVD player, with over 40 movies available for your use.

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 beachwalk 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 hope to 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

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. It has become a family tradition to spend quality time here together. The area is so pristine and the views inspire me each time I'm here.

What makes this condo unique

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! If you do, enjoy a nice long walk on an uncrowded beach to renew your faith and clear your mind. We love to eat at many of the great restaurants on the island and do some shopping in the unique stores 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

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

Just returned from the most relaxing girls weekend!

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!

Beautiful Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family just stayed at this lovely oceanfront condo -- it has gorgeous views out every window and balcony and there is an easy walk to the pool or beach. The owners have it very well stocked with everything you could need. The furnishings are very nice, comfortable beds and updated baths. The community itself is very convenient to restaurants, shopping and historic sites. The owners also gave excellent recommendations on area attractions and where to dine. We had a perfect stay and the whole family enjoyed it very much!!

Two Sisters' Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I spent a very relaxing week in this condo...perfect for the two of us. The owner was very helpful with all the details and a good list of eating recommendations and activities in the area. Good location and the corner unit had great beach views. Comfortable mattresses, too, with lots of extra pillows. All directions were clear and the systems worked flawlessly, which was great since we arrived late. Great week!
