Overview

Northeast Florida Townhome Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom, 3 1/2 Bath Townhome w/ Master on the main - Sleeps 6

- Our townhome is close to the beach, the beautiful Ritz Carlton and the Golf Club of Amelia. Walk or ride bikes to them along the convenient walking paths, and you can enjoy a round of golf, a meal outside overlooking the ocean, dinner at a Five Star restaurant with amazing views, shopping or a spa experience all within the Ritz complex. A mile and a half away is the Summer Beach Beach Club where you can enjoy the beach, a pool with ocean views, a tiki hut and snack bar (operated seasonally) and locker room facilities. Other activities on or near the island include relaxing on the beach, beach walking, shelling, fishing, beach horseback riding, kayaking, river cruises, shopping for antiques and dining opportunities up and down the beach and in historic downtown Fernandina.

- Amelia Island is a very special place to us. The beach is almost empty year-round! Canopy oaks line the streets. Our neighborhood is very quiet and pristine with many fulltime residents. The pool in our neighborhood was voted best on the island, and you can often enjoy it by yourself. The winter months on Amelia Island are mild and it is a great place for year-round short term or long term stays.

- Our luxury unit has everything you may need. The kitchen is fully equipped. We have bikes, beach chairs, umbrellas, beach toys and games. There is Comcast cable, free WiFi and unlimited long distance phone service. Each bedroom has its own television as well as an individual bathroom.

- Our unit is perfect for couples or families with children.

The home was the perfect spot for our family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

The home is beautiful and well appointed with everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay. The description of the property hardly does justice to the value that you receive. The house was very clean and well maintained inside and out. The kitchen was well stocked with most of the basic necessities so you do not have to buy every spice, etc. The proximity to the beach made trips to the beach a snap. We really appreciated the beach equipment (chairs, toys, canopies, etc.) that you cannot haul along on a vacation trip. It was all there. The location is very quiet near the end of a cul-de-sac so sleeping in the comfortable beds was very easy. The house is spacious enough so you do not feel crowded like you would in a hotel room. Grocery stores are not far away. Even the farmer's market is within easy driving distance. To get to the local bike trail that goes the length of the island, you have to travel on the side of the road for about 100 yards, so that was convenient, also. The air conditioning unit stopped working while we were there, but it was fixed within a couple of hours of us notifying the manager. We will definitely consider this rental again if (rather when) we make a trip to Amelia Island again in the future. Thanks Marilyn for a great stay in a great location. We look forward to renting again in the future. As far as activities, we spent most of the time at the beach. I rode my bicycle daily, sometimes in the gated neighborhood, and sometimes on the paved bike trails. Our favorite restaurants were the Fantastic Fudge for ice cream and Café Karibo had great vegetarian selections for salads and a to-die-for vegeburger. Thanks again for a great stay.

Peaceful retreat!

  • 5 of 5

I visit two friends twice per year in different locations. We stayed at this beautiful home for 5 days. The area is beautiful with the Ritz down the road and downtown, which is full of vibrant restaurants and shops, in close driving distance. We enjoyed returning to the solace of this home after each excursion. The home is beautifully decorated, spacious and has every amenity that you could wish to have. Marilyn is a delight to work with. Stay here and enjoy every minute!!!

Great Rental!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great rental! It is a beautiful place with plenty of room for a really great price. My group was in town for a wedding and we had 9 people stay in this rental. It didn't feel cramped and accommodated my group very well. We enjoyed the extra amenities in the garage such as the beach equipment and bicycles. Also there is a pool very close to this rental and it is a very clean beautiful pool with place to lay out and places for shading. Also, the property owner was wonderful to work with. She was very efficient and responded to my emails in a timely manner. We had a problem getting into the garage upon our arrival and she answered the phone the first time I called and helped us get in right away. I would highly recommend this rental to anyone looking for a great place to stay on the island!

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this townhome! It is located in a quiet gated community and it is really close to the beach and shopping centers. When we walked in, we noticed that it was much more spacious than we expected. Each of the bedrooms have a bathroom which makes it great for couples and families as well. The owner was incredibly nice and was available whenever we needed her. She left menus of local restaurants and things to do on the island which was very helpful. The home has everything you need and it is decorated very well. It was very clean (which is most important in my book), well-maintained, and relaxing. There are great restaurants on the beach and the locals were very friendly. I cannot say enough great things about this property. We travel a lot and this has to be one of my favorite, if not my favorite home. I will definitely be returning! Thanks Marilyn!

Great Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from an amazing weekend staying at the townhome. It was the perfect spot for us. The owner really makes it feel like a home and not a rental. We were close to everything, the beach... downtown Fernandina... the pool... and much more. We will definitely be back!

romantic getaway

  • 5 of 5

I can't recommend enough this charming, beautifully decorated townhome for an island getaway. It's tucked away in a gated community. It's quiet, the streets are tree lined. Such a picturesque setting with the Spanish moss dripping from the live oaks.

The community pool area is gorgeous. Walking and bike paths give you freedom to roam. It's an easy drive to the historic and charming town of Fernandina Beach. The owner has compiled a wonderful list of restaurants and suggested "must see" beaches. For a romantic getaway or for a family escape, this townhouse offers it all.
