About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5-8)

Welcome to our second floor, corner unit oceanfront condo at Amelia Island Florida in the historic city of Fernandina Beach. The balcony allows you a beautiful and unobstructed view of some of the most beautiful sunrises and beach scenes you could possibly imagine on the marvelous northeast coast of Florida. You can be entertained by the many porpoises, shrimp boats, and birds that pass by all during the day.

Whether you enjoy the sandy beach or a dip in the pool, both are easily accessible at this condo. The property features a private beach access boardwalk that is directly behind the building with a newly installed wood walk out to the beach. Also for your convenience, Amelia South offers a large Oceanside swimming pool that is located between the condominium building and beach, and has numerous lounge chairs to relax in. You can also relax in the Amelia Room in a relaxing setting and read a book or enjoy free Wi-Fi access offered in there on your iPad or Kindle. Two parking spaces are provided, one of which is a private space just for this condo. The Amelia South property has just undergone recent renovations with updated painting on the building in most all areas along with new landscaping on the property.

Recent upgrades include a new HVAC unit, refrigerator, and furnishings, including a sleeper sofa that sleeps two along with new patio furniture. The kitchen is complete with all appliances, and all of the cooking utensils you could ever need - including the kitchen sink! The unit has two bedrooms. The master bedroom offers an ocean front view, cable TV, DVD player, and a king size bed. The front bedroom has a queen size bed and cable TV with a DVD player. The condo has digital cable TV for all rooms and complimentary Wi-Fi is available, even out on the balcony. There are two full bathrooms as well, each with a shower. The breathtaking corner balcony is perfect for sitting out and watching the stunning Amelia Island sunrises and all of the wildlife living on the beach and the dunes. If you like to relax and read a book, or just meditate, sitting in the relaxing chairs with the windows open provides a relaxing sea breeze and the soothing sounds of the waves crashing on the beach.

The property is located in close proximity to many of the islands finest restaurants, and is just a short walk across the street from the “Surf Restaurant” which is famous for its outdoor tiki bar and nightly live music – there is always a good time found at The Surf. The beautiful downtown historical district is a short ten minute drive from the property so you can enjoy the antique, clothing, and specialty shops, including the oldest saloon in Florida. If you like hiking, biking or history, make sure you pay a visit to Fort Clinch State Park.

If you enjoy a game of miniature golf or a movie while you’re on the island, this fun is just five minutes away. There are several championship golf courses on the island that are also in close proximity. If you enjoy fishing, there are several local charter boats waiting for you, and dinner cruises are available for charter at the marina downtown as well. For a short day trip, you are only 30 minutes from the stunning Cumberland Island, GA or Jacksonville, FL. While there is plenty to enjoy on the island, it is not too commercial or busy.

We know you will enjoy the condo with your family as much as we do with ours. If you stay at this family friendly condo, you will not want to leave. You will not be disappointed.

About Clay Greene

I have traveled to Amelia Island my entire life and have many fond memories of going to the Island as a child with my family. Now I enjoy watching my wife and two daughters enjoy the beach and making memories on the frequent trips we make down there now.

Clay Greene purchased this condo in 1998

Why Clay Greene chose Northeast Florida

Our family has come to Amelia Island for many years and we found what we thought was the perfect unit to purchase as a second home. It has an outstanding view of the ocean, and being an end corner unit, the view is not restricted by a wall.

Amelia South is a very well managed property and gives you a very secure feeling.

What makes this condo unique

Our condo is conveniently located on the 2nd floor on the North end of the building right by the stairwell. This gives you easy access to the parking lot and the walkway to access the pool and the walkway to the beach. The end units of the condo provide more spectacular views than units in the inner part of the building with the open ends of the balcony.

The balcony view is spectacular and you have a wonderful view of the beach and the ocean. If there is a fireworks event taking place at the Ritz Carlton or downtown Fernandina Beach - you can see them perfectly from the comfort of the balcony.

Great location, wonderful owner

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time we've stayed here. We came back because we really liked the property. It's on the second floor and easily accessible by stairway although elevators are available. It's on the corner so better beach view. Location is good, very quiet even considering the proximity of the airport. Air traffic is mostly small craft and infrequent. We thought this was a great place to catch up on naps if traveling without children as we were. There are some great places to eat within short driving distance and historic district is very easy to get to. The amenities at the property are very good. The owner is also very flexible/friendly. We would definitely stay here again, we already have!

Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

The balcony is a great place to enjoy coffee in the morning and wine in the evening while enjoying a wonderful view of the beach! The complex is well maintained and quiet. The location of the unit, right at the stairs, makes for quick and easy access to the beach/pool walkway and parking lot. The condo is clean and comfortable. It is a short trip to the historic district and lots of great restaurants and shops.

Love It!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed another 2 months in this condo this winter. We love it. It is our third year. We like the second floor as we have a wonderful view of the ocean from the balcony. It is an end unit which gives a lot of light and makes the place seem larger. There is plenty of room with the two bedrooms and two baths. The owner is wonderful to work with and has made improvements each year. There is also a manager on site which is nice. This year outside work included a new blacktop parking lot and a beautiful new pool. It is an easy walk to restaurants, gas station, and of course the beach is just over the dunes. The people are so friendly and helpful. It is a wonder place to stay. Same people return year after year. This history of this island is unbelievable. Many historic sites to visit.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

The property is on the 2nd floor which makes it very convenient to get to. Furthermore, it's on the corner which has a broader view of the ocean. The inside of the property is nice, everything works fine, and the owners were very nice and accommodating. I would definitely want to stay here again if we returned with the kids. The general neighborhood was very safe. There is a convenience store across the street for simple things like ice or coffee, and the Surf restaurant is within walking distance. There are several local places to eat (Arte Pizza, T Ray's, Ms Carolyn) all of which I strongly recommend, but The Surf is the closest and it's a bit of a local treasure itself. It's about a 5-10 minute drive to these places or other points of interest such as Ft. Clinch. This was a great 'home base' to explore Amelia Island/Fernandina Bch. The pool was under construction, but we were here in February with 40 degree weather so not an issue. Strongly recommend this property.

Thanks to the Greene family for allowing us our wonderful week there.

Just as pictured, terrific view!

  • 5 of 5

The other reviews are right this place really has everything you need, is just as pictured and has a great view too. Our family of 7 was quite comfortable in the condo and loved that it was an end unit. The condo is on the second floor however it is really close to the stairs (there are less than 20 steps if I remember correctly from building sidewalk at parking lot to the condo) and there is an elevator in the middle of the building if needed. The kitchen is equipped with everything you need and the view from the balcony is just as great as pictured! The downtown area is so relaxing and the ice cream at Fantastic Fudge is great on a hot day or grab a delicious burger and sweet potato fries at Tasty's! The condo is about 10 minutes maybe a little less to a couple different grocery stores and also a short drive to Jacksonville and Amelia Island.
