About Brenda Jackson

Robert and I are semi-retired and own three properties on Amelia Island. Robert grew up in Jacksonville, so he was somewhat familiar with the Island, but we both really fell it love with it when we visited in the early 90's. We loved it so much, we would drive from Atlanta every other weekend - getting here late on Friday night and leaving for home early Sunday afternoon. When we crossed that bridge to the Island, it always felt like coming home. Our dream was to someday be able to make the Island our home. In 2002, we finally realized that dream and moved here! We have three condos - a 1BR/1BA at the Surf & Racquet, a 2BR/2BA in Summer Beach Village (Sailmaker) and a 2BR/2BA Amelia Landings "Treehouse". We thoroughly enjoy managing our condos and we have met so many wonderful people. We do our best to make our condos special for our guests - a place they would like to come often. Some have even gotten the itch to move here, too! We highly recommend it!

Why Brenda Jackson chose Northeast Florida

We walked in this condo and knew we wanted to purchase it. It is so convenient on the ground floor - just walk right out to the pool and to the beach with no stairs or elevators to deal with! Very nice view of the ocean from every room. It has a great 'feel' and is super clean.

What makes this condo unique

great views, new Stearns & Foster mattress that is oh, so comfortable, nicely decorated and very clean

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I found this condo via Trip advisor and felt like it would be a good fit for us. We were so pleased with the condo itself. It is located on the southern end of the island which in our opinion is the more peaceful end. Our entire experience was lovely - Brenda made everything so easy for us and even provided an extremely helpful guide to the island including activities and restaurant reviews. We felt like we were staying in a relative's condo. The condo itself is just wonderful - on the ground floor so every morning we could just walk out of the patio doors and onto the beach. I cooked almost every meal in the well-equipped kitchen and even read a suspenseful Patricia Cornwell novel that was on the condo's bookshelf. I can't recommend renting with Brenda and her husband more. We had a great experience.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

The property was a little dated but very well kept and maintained. The location was perfect for my meeting at the Ritz Carlton. My only regret is that I wish I could have stayed longer to capitalize on the beachside location. Thank you so much for providing a wonderful stay!!

The Surf and Racquet is beautifully maintained and the location is the best I feel on the island

  • 4 of 5

A beautiful beach awaits - not crowded and endless. The condo buildings are older but with lovely maintained gardens and trees. A long pathway from the property takes you through the trees and palms for walking or biking. Close by are the tennis courts and golf is not far away. The town of Fernandina is charming!!!!

Great location and host

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 11 days while waiting to close on our new Amelia Island home. It was a perfect place to become comfortable with living here... sitting on the patio for breakfast and in the evening, listening to the waves on the beach. As others noted, the bed is very comfortable, and the entire place is clean and well-appointed.
