About Dan Ward

This home was originally purchased to get away from a hectic environment of the big city life in California and New York. Solitude with nature are rare to find in today's 'hustle and bustle' world.

Dan Ward purchased this house in 2006

Why Dan Ward chose Northeast Florida

The home is secluded and private. Its ideal for family gatherings, a romantic retreat or to get away from a hectic life style. Rejuvenate and unwind while enjoying the island. A spa allows you to heat and massage the tensions away. Golf courses, shopping, bike trails and restaurants are all nearby. Bikers and joggers frequent the area due to minimal traffic. Fishermen have said the beach in this area provides excellent surf fishing.

What makes this house unique

This property offers a private and secluded setting. A vacation is meant to be relaxing and rejuvenation. You will achieve this experience with the serene location. Most oceanfront house are located on AIA with heavy traffic conditions. This private home is located off the main road with nearby amenities. The Omni Plantation and the Ritz Carlton are nearby with restaurants and shopping. Downtown is a few miles away. The house has a fenced in paver stone patio with spa, fire pit and Adirondack chairs to enjoy a great night listening to the ocean with a warmth of the fire which adds ambiance for a couple's private evening or a family outing. The tropical surrounding and designer interior offers a special and unique environment like none other on the island. Although there have been events accommodated in the past, we no longer allow for events such as weddings since the homeowners insurance does not permit nor allow for them.

Wonderful family vacation

  • 5 of 5

American Beach is undergoing a revival with new homes facing this beautiful beach. Pelican Landing is a great house that is comfortable and well equipped. The view from the spacious living room is spectacular. The kitchen is easy to work in. We enjoyed using the grill on the patio. The owner is very responsive and a pleasure to deal with. Even with a little brush by Hurricane Hermine, our family of seven had a wonderful vacation.

What a fantastic find!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home is more than adequately equipped to make a stay easy for a large, multi-aged family. The location is spectacular, the beach and the view beautiful, the home welcoming and comfortable. Just be aware of the steps for elderly folks. They aren't bad at all but they ARE there at the entrance and to the master suite upstairs (which is absolutey fabulous!)! The downstairs bedroom, while windowless, is a beautiful, quiet and private retreat that our 30ish son and daughter-in-law LOVED! The bedrooms on the main floor are lovely and comfortable. And who stays in the bedroom at the beach, anyway? The hot tub is an added bonus. Access to the beach is a breeze. The outdoor shower is divine! The grill is great and high end. There are no complaints from THIS group about anything at all. Dan is accessible and quick to address any concerns that may come up. The extras he has available in the home make it evident that your pleasure in and enjoyment of his house matter to him. A fantastic find! We are planning our next stay already...

Fabulous Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

In May of 2016 we spent our yearly 'Girls Vacation' at Pelican Landing. I've stayed in many vacation rentals thru the years and this is, by far, my favorite. The home is gorgeous, beautifully decorated, spacious, very accommodating and spotlessly clean, inside and out. It's so comfy cozy you'll want to stay forever. There was even soft music playing when we first entered the home. There's a beautiful patio out back, a small deck upstairs off the master suite and a large deck off the main floor which runs the entire width of the house. If not on the beach, this is where we spent most of our time enjoying the incredible ocean view. The lighting that surrounds the house, including decks and patio automatically turn on at dusk, so we always felt very safe and secure. The beautiful beach is just steps from the house and was very quiet and peaceful. The owner provides beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, etc for your use, even a wagon for hauling it all to the beach.

The restaurants are all marvelous, shopping in Fernandina Beach is great, and there are lots of things to do, some of which are hiking, horseback riding and boat rides/tours. Or you can just lay on the beach all week like we did!

I can't say enough good things about Dan Ward, the owner. I had several conversations with him prior to our stay and you won't find a kinder, more helpful man than he is. It's obvious his goal is to guarantee his guests truly have an enjoyable, unforgettable time at Pelican Landing. I would highly recommend renting this property!!

The October issue of Conde Travel Magazine ranked Amelia Island as one of the top ten destinations for islands in the United States. This article states, 'Whether it's the seemly endless green space or the unbelievable hospitable locals, readers agree that this Florida island is a beautiful, history-filled family location.'

Travel and Leisure Magazine ranked Amelia Island #3 as America's Most Romantic Destination. They state, 'Reader's love this barrier island town most for its parks and quaint historic downtown'.

Every year the Ritz of Amelia Island hosts the Concours d' Elegance which is the largest car show in the eastern United States.

The 12 mile by two mile island offers numerous golf courses, horseback riding on the beach, kayaking along with trails for jogging, running and biking.

The island is one of the oldest settled sites in America and offers town and ghost tours. The oldest bar in Florida, the Palace Saloon, offers evening entertainment along with numerous other bars, such as Amelia Tavern, and several restaurants ranging from waterfront fine dining, to French, Italian, Asian and Mexican restaurants. There are many seafood restaurants on the oceanfront to enjoy the locals catch of the day.

Nearby are several restaurants, the Salt (located at the Ritz), Bar Zin, Cucina South, Verandah, PLAE, Baxter's and Parkway Grill are all located in under a mile away. A personal favorite is David's downtown. It has a cosmopolitan atmosphere with a friendly service-oriented staff and a large menu of gourmet foods ranging from surf to turf.
