Forest Ridge Condo

  • 5 of 5

We have selected this unit for our vacation the past five years - this year for 8 weeks. It has begun to feel like our home away from home. The landlady, Dorothea, is extremely helpful and easy to work with. The condo is well equipped and very quiet. It is also conveniently located being near the beach, shopping and grocery stores.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 was looking for a last minute spring break trip where we would have nice beach weather. Since we were driving from Maryland, we determined that the northern Florida beaches looked like the closest best bet. We are very familiar with South Florida, but had never been to the northern part. With all beachfront hotels booked, we decided to try VRBO for the first time and we couldn't have been more satisfied with this condo and the owner Dorothea. The condo was very comfortable and was in such great condition, it was very well equipped and had everything that we needed. It was also convenient to everything that we wanted to do. The complex itself, while a bit older, seems to be very well maintained, and the pool and tennis courts were actually nicer in person than they appeared in pictures. In addition, Dorothea was a pleasure to deal with. We have a lot of experience renting places from management companies in Ocean City, MD and North Carolina. I don't know whether our experience with Dorothea was typical for a VRBO property or not, but the personal service she gave us was well above and beyond what we are used to when dealing with a large management company. If we find ourselves looking at heading that way again, we would certainly see if this place was available. For anyone that may be concerned about only having a double bed in the second bedroom, we have a boy and a girl (10 and 13) so didn't think they could share the double bed in the second bedroom. We didn't think our 10 year old would want to sleep on the pullout sofa downstairs by himself in a strange place, so we brought a queen size air mattress and it fit perfectly in the room with the double bed.

Massachusetts Relief

  • 5 of 5

This is the first time we tried northern Florida and enjoyed it very much even though it was in early February 2015. No snow like we had up North in Mass. Location and unit were fine, spacious, and Dorathea a jewel. High points were the Palace Saloon, dinner at an Italian restaurant about 4 miles south of the condo, the Historic Plantation just 5 miles south off of the island itself, St Augustine, and of course the Amelia Island downtown historic area. Managed one round of golf at the Amelia Island Golf Course - very friendly people running the place. Over all a great 2 week vacation.
