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 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 X1 voice control on-demand movies and digital music channels.

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 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.

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.

Nice Stay

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time, Condo is a short walk from the beach, the pool is nice and roomy. The owner has several beach items that make it convenient so you don't have to pack anything. I read all the reviews and I have absolutely no complaints. We enjoyed our stay, and the owner was very easy to work with. Oh and there was plenty of counter space to cook, the Wifi worked magnificent, Tons of channels to watch, and the screened in back porch was great. The bed is absolutely fine, and cozy. Cheers!!!!!

Great location and fully stocked!

  • 4 of 5

Never having been to Amelia Island made it difficult for us to chose the right location. Well this was it! The condo was clean and well equipped. The beach path was short and fun and Sliders (an easy walk from the condo) on the beach was a great place to grab some food and drinks. You're better off sticking to the bar area (yes even with kids-there are tables) because our meal sitting outside at a table wasn't as good nor was the service.

The only cons to this condo are as follows: This unit is dark due to the lush foliage surrounding the area. We opened the front door to get some extra light in. My husband seemed to think the master bedroom bed sunk in the middle but I didn't think so. The couch in the living area wasn't the most comfortable either. We could hear everything the people above us were doing from pulling out a chair to just walking around. Luckily it sounded like only one person so it never interrupted our sleep. The pool bathroom was not very well maintained. There was never any toilet paper in there and they were not cleaned daily.

The pros are plenty: The kitchen is well equipped with anything you could possibly need. There is a washer and dryer which came in handy as well. All of the bathroom towels and beach towels were provided and plentiful. The location on the island is perfect and proximity to the beach was an easy walk for our 6, 9 & 11 year old boys. Plenty of food and beach stores in the surrounding area. The pool was beautiful and huge. We thoroughly enjoyed going there every day (other than the bathroom). The unit is right next to the pool so it's easy enough to use the bathroom in the condo. Although we didn't use it often, the back porch was huge and screened in. We used the beach equipment which is a huge perk including sand toys, boogie boards, chairs, umbrella and a cooler. There were tennis rackets as well although we didn't use them. The ottoman/bed worked perfectly for our little guy. All 3 were able to sleep in the bedroom comfortably. Price matched the value. Kristin is very timely in getting back to you and friendly as well.

All in all, we enjoyed our stay in this condo. Thank you Kristin for providing a lovely place for our mini vacation. I apologize that I forgot to turn the thermostat back up as requested on the check out instructions. I remembered once we got to the airport!

Very Nice

  • 5 of 5

We always bring everything we need for the beach but this condo had everything you would need. We had a lot of rain but the pool was nice and big the one day we did get to use it. Short walk to the beach. Just a nice place for the beach,pool or just to relax.

Owner's Response: Nancy, Glad you enjoyed your stay. Sounds like the strainer went MIA again and possibly someone broke the pizza cutter without replacing. I will take care of it, thanks for letting us know. Take care, Kristin

Wonderful Condo

  • 5 of 5

Our family took a last minute weekend getaway to the Fernandina Beach and this condo was perfect for us. Although not a beach front condo it has easy access to the beach by walking through the walkway. There are also a plethora of public beach accesses within driving distance. Kristin treats you more like family than just just another guest and we enjoyed the use of the boards and wagon. The condo itself was very clean and comfortable for our 4 people. I would highly recommend staying here.
