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.

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.

Amenities Abound! Thank you for an amazing family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

Our week long family stay was just what the doctor ordered. Kristin was helpful and opened up her home that was filled with amenities...we didn't need to bring towels, beach chairs, boogie boards anything. The condo was so lovely and centrally located on the island. Close to restaurants, ice cream, the sunrises were amazing.

Kristin told us about a new trail just behind the Residence Inn on Egan's creek, turtles and bunnies were a delight.

We recommend the Family Sunset Cruise through Amelia River Cruises in Fernandina, learned a ton of history and saw dolphins, the fort and an amazing sunset!

We will be back and will stay in your lovely home again.

Great stay

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Kristin's condo in Amelia Landings. The condo was clean and well equipped with everything we needed. The kitchen was small but clean and well organized. Very comfortable place. Good tennis courts and beautiful pool. The area was close to the beach and many stores and restaurants. My only suggestion would be to replace the large glass table in dining area with a smaller wooden table. If you leaned on one side of the glass table it tips off the base. This could be dangerous for young children. Thanks Kristen for a great stay.

Owner's Response: Jean, Thank you, I pride myself on making sure my guests are comfortable and don't need to buy or rent extra things. We were just there and replaced beach chairs, umbrella, replaced sheets, bought soft fluffy towels, new couch pillows, lamps, new shades, throw rugs, etc. My next project is the kitchen cupboards, but my quote was so high I have to save up. Thank you for the heads-up on the table, I will have my handyman epoxy it down so that it is safe. See you next year.

Amelia Landings is a beautiful location which would be my first choice if a future trip is planned!

  • 4 of 5

The location is ideal and amenities most enjoyable. The unit is lovely and well provisioned. The only suggestion would be to include better information for getting TV/Comcast access and locating TV channels. Also, a small TV in the second bedroom would be a nice addition to the unit.

Kristin was a delightful owner who made me feel welcome and "at home."

I have recommended Amelia Landings to friends who have booked a unit for 2017.

Owner's Response: So glad you were able to get away and relax. I just sent a list of TV directions and Comcast channels to my handyman who will post in the unit, that remote can be tricky if you aren't used to Comcast. :) I am planning on pulling out the wetbar and making that a work station for travelers to use as a desk and computer station as that is where we end up charging our devices. I don't think I will put another tv in the small bedroom, seems like kids have their own devices and my yearly bill for Comcast is already over $2,000 for internet and cable. Take care, Kristin

We were very pleased with the property and what they had to offer. We are planning to stay again.

  • 4 of 5

We were so pleased with the property except for a few items which to us were minor. When we went to get one of the cooking plots to use. It was dirty all over, as if it had oatmeal stuck all over the inside of the pot, which we could correct easily. It did appear as if the cleaning service did not do as good of a job as they could have. Some of the floors were dirty. The beds were clean, most everything seemed to be clean, that is why I said there where very minor issues and that would not keep us from staying there again. The place was in distance of a lot of wonderful places to visit and see. We found many more things good about the place instead of bad. Thanks you very much.

What a beautiful GEM!!

  • 5 of 5

If we had any questions, concerns or reservations prior to our stay Kristin (owner) put us at ease by answering all of them to our satisfaction so when we arrived we knew what to expect and where everything was. All amenities as described by Kristin where there. Upon arriving after dark we found the unit was in immaculate condition. It had a great home feel and very comfortable. Everything worked. Lots of room and storage space. Another nice perk was the lanai which was exceptionally large. We spent our evenings before bed listening to the wind blow through the trees and nice conversations with family. You could not see any neighbors which was quite refreshing compared to staying at a hotel. The walk through the trail in the woods to the beach was approx 5 mins. Also 5 mins by car to Publix and pizzaria (excellent pizza) was also next to Publix so getting supplies was very easy. Oh, yeah, Starbucks was in the same mall and was my wife and daughter's favorite place to go.

Thank you again Kristin for sharing your wonderful GEM!! with us. We look forward to staying there again.

Perfect Condo!

  • 5 of 5

This condo had everything we could have possibly needed on a vacation- beach towels/umbrellas/chairs, boogie boards, an abundance of linens, and a fully equipped kitchen! The owner was extremely friendly and helpful in offering tips/to dos around town! Easy walk to the beach, bike rental shop, and restaurants in town. HIGHLY recommended to all- we will definitely stay here again! This condo was the perfect fit for exploring this beautiful area!
