What a week!

We were just inspected and I have amazing news no damage! My prayers were answered. The island was very lucky to have avoided what could have been devastating.

Our Amelia Landings Beach and Racquet Resort condo is beautifully decorated and located in a private setting, on the first floor. It features a master bedroom with high-definition cable TV, and a second bedroom with twin beds as well as a convertible single bed/ottoman that is perfect for families of 5 traveling with a child (each bedroom has their own full bath), a fully equipped kitchen with new appliances, a washer and dryer in the unit, a family dining area, and a comfortably furnished living room complete with a wet-bar, wireless internet, DVD player, and on-demand movies and digital music channels. Because this is our second home we have stocked it with all the comforts of home. Perfect for couples or family. Read our reviews!

New: We just screened in the large back porch so you will be bug free but can still enjoy the breeze and nature sounds. There's a table for dining or cards, and comfy chairs to unwind or read.

The porch overlooks lush tropical magnolia trees and a full-sized pool, which is accessible from both the master bedroom and living room. Our first floor villa is closest to the recently redone and daily maintained pool area, which features a newly remodeled poolside bathroom for your convenience. The property has its own tennis court as well as a pond for fishing, turtle feeding, and bird watching (herons, egrets, and an owl). The property also offers BBQ grills and picnic tables. The resort has ample parking as well. We are within walking distance to restaurants, surf shops and rentals, and a favorite ice cream parlor. Enjoy the tranquility of the ocean, located less than two blocks away on your own private secluded boardwalk. No need to pack linens, beach towels, or rent boogie boards, beach chairs, or a cooler. Small touches like a blow dryer, straightener, great new pots and pans, an electric griddle, name a few of amenities you may take advantage of. We also have an iHome speaker to charge your phone and to hear your own music.

Amelia Island is a 13 mile-long barrier island north of Jacksonville with pristine beaches framed by dunes and oat grass, rated among America's top ten most beautiful. Quaint historic downtown Fernandina Beach is only minutes away and boasts a downtown corridor that highlights the beautiful Fernandina Harbor Marina, perfect for great meals, antique shopping, art galleries, and romantic sunset walks. Enjoy hiking and mountain biking in nearby wooded parks like Amelia Island State Park, Little Talbot Island State Park, and Fort Clinch State Park. Amelia Island is home to many festivals including the Isle of Eight Flags Shrimp Festival, the Amelia Island Jazz Festival, and the Amelia Island Concors d'Elegance. Other activities nearby include horseback riding, parasailing, golf, and much more! Or just relax and collect shells as well as memories!

About kristin powers

I am a reading specialist/literacy coach in the Detroit area. I was a Purdue Boilermaker, currently I am an ice hockey goalie and love to kayak, ski, and snowshoe. I have a beautiful daughter named Sophie who loves coming to Amelia to look for shark teeth on the beach, swim, boogie board, and head to downtown Fernandina for ice cream.

kristin powers purchased this condo in 2008

Why kristin powers chose Northeast Florida

I have been coming to Amelia for over 35 years with my parents and brother. It has always been a dream of mine to share Amelia with my own children. When we found this beautiful condo, professionally decorated and ready to buy, we jumped at the chance. I am happy to offer a relaxing place for families to enjoy an affordable vacation.

What makes this condo unique

We are centrally located to beach and downtown shopping. The pool is right next door to our first floor unit. There is tennis, a pond for turtle feeding, and a beach path. Our units have begun to recycle as well. Inside we have a well stocked owner's closet with boogie boards, umbrellas, beach chairs, toys, a beach cart, cooler, towels, etc.

New: We just screened in the back porch, no bugs, perfect for reading, dining, or playing cards.

For youngsters we have a bed rail you can add for safety, a One Step Ahead beach tent for naps, and a blow-up toddler boat. Wifi, movie channels, linens, etc.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your condo had everything that our family was looking for. It was relaxing and well stocked. We enjoyed the use of the pool and the boogie boards, beach chairs, and cooler allowed us to enjoy the beautiful beach! Found two shark teeth! Downtown was quaint, would recommend the historic carraige ride!

We will return next year, thanks Kris and Mike.

Great location and very comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

Amelia Escape was perfect for our needs. A very comfortable and well appointed home. The screened in porch was also a great feature. You could not beat the location, so close to the beach and many of the other attractions on Amelia Island. We would definitely love to return.

Comfortable and close to all activity

  • 5 of 5

As retired seniors who usually go to Kissimmee this was a pleasant change. Quite and comfortable with everything you need for an enjoyable stay. We visited "Old Town", took a 2 hour cruise of nearby islands and even went to St. Augustine for a day.(less then a 2 hour drive). We experienced a cold snap (20 degrees at night), but being from New England we rebounded quickly and enjoyed the rest of our stay. We will consider a return visit.

Owner's Response: So glad you had a great stay. The River Cruise is very fun, we took a sunset one last time we visited and it did not disappoint. We would love to have you stay again with us, and enjoy a 10% return renters discount. Take care, Kristin

Awesome home away from home for our family

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 3 really enjoyed our week in this condo. The screened porch was a nice extra play area and we appreciated the sand toys and wagon we could borrow. The kitchen had everything we needed. I agree with other reviewers that the mattresses were too firm but that is a very personal thing. Overall, Amelia Island was a fantastic laid-back Christmas vacation.

Owner's Response: So glad all went well. I will purchase a feather top mattress cover and mail it to my housekeeper. This way people can take it off if it's too soft. Take care, Kp

Fernandina Charm

  • 4 of 5

We love Fernandina!! In spite of the brevity and chilliness of the weekend trip, we had a great time! This little nest is clean, well-maintained and nicely appointed. We felt very much at home. We were close to the beach and close to my business meeting. As we sat in the living area, my daughter said, "Wouldn't it be nice to have some brochures to review?" And I popped up and handed her a wicker basket full of nice brochures. Thanks for sharing your home away from home with us! We really enjoyed our stay.

Great Place for a Family

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for us! A nice quiet and well maintained condo. Location was a short walk to beach. Everything comfortable, in good shape and nicely decorated. Checking in/out was a breeze. Favorite feature was the screened in porch. It overlooked a wonderful natural area with many trees and no bugs! I could sit out there all day. Would definitely choose it again!

Perfect relaxing weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had a beautiful relaxing weekend at your condo again. The place had all the comforts of home and we love the location. We noticed some new touches: huge dining table and screened in porch were perfect! So nice to read at night, so peaceful.

We loved all the birds and can't believe a category three just went through there...you can't tell.

The beach seemed to fare better than my friend's down at the Plantation. They will have frontloaders for weeks to come removing debris. Yours looks unspoiled.

Can't wait to return as we didn't miss a sunset or a sunrise.

Thank you again,

Sophie

Owner's Response: So glad to have you back again and happy you enjoyed your stay. Yes, the island was very lucky and was spared the wrath of Matthew. We can't wait to come down again and see all those gorgeous sunrises! And yes...we do have availability for that week in May but don't wait too long to book because we start filling up fast. :) KP
