2BR 2BA Oceanfront Condo Walk out back onto beach- sleeps 6

Sit on your private oceanfront balcony at 'The Oceans of Amelia' or in one of the twin lounge chairs (that twirl all the way around) in the Living Room and watch the waves come ashore, surfers, dolphins or shrimp boats. You may even see a submarine in the distance going up into the channel from the ocean on its way to King's Bay. (In June and July I cannot rent for less than 6 nights (7th night free)

This condo is on the 1st floor (above the parking area) of a 3 story building. It has a queen size bed in the master bedroom and twin beds in the 2nd bedroom. The new queen size sofa bed in the Living Room sleeps 2 . There is free wifi Internet service for your laptop. This unit is beautifully decorated and very comfortable.

Amenities- It features 2 cable flat screen TV’s with DVD player. All linens, (fitted sheets. towels, dishtowels) are furnished. The kitchen is complete with coffee maker, icemaker, disposal, lots of dishes and cookware, toaster, etc. There is a stack full size washer/dryer in the utility closet. This is a no-smoking unit but smoking is allowed on the balcony.

Activities:: Amelia Island features a wide array of tourist attractions such as uncrowded beaches, fine restaurants, boutiques, galleries, and many diverse recreational activities such as top rated golf courses, tennis, beachcombing, sailing, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, miniature golf, water slide, volleyball, horseback riding, cruising on the Amelia River or you may want to take a day trip over to Cumberland Island. One of the most popular events is the Shrimp Festival which is always held the first weekend in May. The streets of historic downtown Fernandina are filled with art, crafts, antiques, live music, children's activities and lots of delicious local seafood. A 50 block area of Downtown Fernandina Beach is listed on the National Register of Historic Places because of its amazing preservation of late Victorian architecture with its many mansions and cottages.

Florida's oldest saloon is the Palace Saloon on Centre Street with hand painted murals, a hand-carved 40 foot mahogany bar and pressed tin ceilings. One of Amelia Island's most unique historic sites is Fort Clinch, the pre-civil War fort located inside a beautiful 1700 acre state park. On the first weekend of every month volunteers join the park rangers to reenact life in 1864 during the occupation by Union troops. There is also a beautiful beachfront with a half mile long fishing pier and many miles of hiking and bicycle trails

Guestbook comments from the owner

We found that you can experience the good life in "Your Home Away From Home" in Amelia Island, Florida. Located on picturesque Fernandina Beach, you'll enjoy panoramic ocean views in a tranquil setting. This "Oceans of Amelia" condo (2 bedrooms and 2 baths,) offers well-designed interiors for couples and families alike. It will accommodate up to six people.

This condo contained all of the modern amenities for dining at home with an ocean view from the living room, dining room and outside balcony. (The 2 lounge chairs in front of the big windows in the living room that turn all the way around will spoil you.) The kitchen is well-equipped to cook 3 meals a day but there are wonderful restaurants on the island. (My favorites are the Crab Trap and the Marina Restaurant down town.) This condo is a spot you will never want to leave-family oriented and safety-minded for all and it is a perfect choice for your vacation. The owner was easy to work with.

Can't go wrong with this rental

You really will be pleasantly surprised at how wonderful this place is. Very roomy, open and WONDERFUL ocean views. Nice and tidy. The washer and dryer are great for families. Nice location close to Fort Clinch. Watch the dolphins and boats moored out in the ocean. Do not miss the downtown area and Pompeo's it was delicious. We saw wonderful wildlife like armadillo's, alligators, gecko's, stingrays. Owner is easy to work with and readily accesible. Great value compared to others in the same building.

Beautiful ocean view!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place my husband and I to enjoy the ocean. Due to his walking restrictions, he could just sit in the recliner and look at the ocean from the recliners placed in front of huge windows. Convenient to several great restaurants. We loved it and hope to go back again.

Super comfy super quiet!

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable condo with a great location in proximity to the beach. a very peaceful quiet area, great for families. We are a family of 4 with college and HS Soph, and we had plenty of room. Complex was very clean and pool was a perfect place to cool down on those hot ones. If you wanna get away and just chill, this is the place.

A Wonderful Month!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have just returned home from an amazing month at this condo. Although it was close to the coldest temperatures for the month of March in recent history, we were still able to have our cups of coffee and enjoy wonderful sunrises, dolphins swimming by, sea birds diving and soaring, all from the comfortable chairs in the living room area. Three times we saw from our balcony a rare right whale swimming by! Such a special experience! Longs walk on the beach were a daily activity, Being able also to walk to the historic downtown area of Fernandina Beach was a big bonus for us. Lots of wonderful shops and restaurants. We strongly recommend Pablos for Mexican food and Arte Pizza for Italian.

The condo is bright, clean, comfortable and adequately supplied. It is a well cared for complex. The owner is quick to respond to questions and concerns if any arise.

We are already planning our return visit. It was a lovely experience in every way.

Great Place to stay in NE Florida

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed our stay at Amelia Island. The location right on the beach and the proximity of the pool made water fun so accessible and fun. We enjoyed the local caught shrimp several nights too. We saw the dolphins on 2 mornings while taking our beach walk. The beauty of the location was best summed up by our kids watching the ocean out the windows rather than the TV.
