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 Amelia Island

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.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The condo and location are wonderful, everything was well stocked and immaculate, the bed is extremely comfortable, and I can’t say enough nice things about Brenda (owner). We love Amelia Island, and will definitely be coming back to stay at this condo again!

Fabulous condo with a terrific location

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay in this condo. The location couldn’t be better - directly by the pool, only steps from the beach and a short walk to the Ritz. The condo, itself, is tastefully decorated, very clean, has comfortable furniture, and great appliances. It truly has all the comforts of home. I’d highly recommend this property.

Well appointed and clean

  • 4 of 5

Because I also have a rental unit (in another state) I am very particular on everything. The flooring, furniture are well done. Bed is great. The sliding glass door needs to be fixed in the living room, the bathroom is small and needs updating, if the door was a sliding door it will give more room and the furnace registrars need to be maintained. I am a contractor and look at everything.

Great location on first floor

  • 4 of 5

We were very happy with our stay and would definitely rent this unit again! It was extremely clean, bed was comfortable, kitchen well stocked. Decor was a little dated but in great shape with no tears/worn areas in the fabric or dings in the furniture. Rooms are nice and bright. The only issue we had was a VERY strong smell of what may have been insecticide on our first day. We had to open doors for a while to let it air out and worried about our baby being exposed to the chemicals. That shouldn't keep anyone from renting this lovely little condo, but the owners may want to address whatever that was in the future.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your review. Just before you arrived. we had the tile floors deep cleaned throughout the condo. I think the cleaning solution that was used is what you smelled. I am so sorry. I am glad you enjoyed the condo and I hope to have you as our guests again very soon! Brenda

Would stay again!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect condo for two. Condo was clean and exactly as advertised on internet. Bed was comfortable and sheets were nice. Bathroom was very small, but had everything we needed. We did not cook while we were there, but everything you would need was available. Although you had to drive to any restaurant, we found some very nice ones. Just steps from beach made our daily walks on beach quite easy. Pool was inviting and used by us to cool off every day after that long walk. Historic district on Fernandina Beach was interesting and we spent several afternoons there. Lots of restaurants and shops there also, plus a beautiful old courthouse still in use. All the retail workers were extremely friendly and we had some nice visits with several. Had to call owner with a question, and her response time was immediate! Don't find that everywhere. What a great week! We would definitely recommend this condo and this area to vacation.
