Fernandina Beach Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

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.

Clean, Quiet, NICE!

  • 5 of 5

I had a 2-day workshop coming up in Fernindina Bch & the condo we (2 of us) were planning on staying in cancelled due to family emergency. The night (9:30PM) before we were to depart we were scrambling via computer to find a 2 BR/2BA place to stay near the beach for 3 nights. I found "Serene" & even had to call the owner (sorry, I woke her up!!) in Michigan to get some answers. We were so pleasantly surprised by the condo. It was in a quiet location & near the beach..... everything we needed. There were supplies for the beach, books to read, comfortable beds, stocked kitchen, washer/dryer, close-by parking. Just great! Thanks Kristin for squeezing us in at the last minute & for such a lovely condo!

Fair stay, but not as expected.

  • 3 of 5

Condo well located to downtown and restaurants. Located back in wooded area, but not well lighted at night. Condo fair, but mattresses are very firm like a rock. Comfortable to relax in during vacation. Great balcony but no real view. Pool was large and a nice pool, but not keep to clean during our stay. It was always full of leaves and toys left all over pool area. Also condo is advertised as ground floor but there are 4 steps to get to front door. Rented cause it was ground floor due to elderly parents but mom could not do steps to visit us. Was a little disappointed as that was purpose in renting a ground floor condo.

Owner's Response: Vickie, The condo, like most on the coast is raised up by four steps, to ensure safety against flooding. We spoke of this on the phone that there were steps. The mattresses are firm and that is a matter of taste. You neglected to mention that pool is cleaned daily, leaves happen, especially if we want partial shade. Pictures show view of wooded area, should be as expected. Happy to tell my renters that we just screened I the back porch! You can play cards, read, have dinner, or even nap out there! Happy Fall everyone!

Convenient and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Amelia Landings is our preferred home away from home South. This year we were in A1

next to the pool and convenient to everywhere we wanted to go - - beach, site seeing,

restaurants, downtown Fernandina, even Jacksonville if we want to drive over there. The

condo was well maintained and contained everything we needed even chairs for the beach, toys for the grandchildren, etc. The furniture was comfortable, TV's easy to operate, the washer and dryer was extra handy. The back porch was relaxing and even

included a table for four. We are early seniors and the first floor location was especially convenient. We would recommend this condo to anyone.

A 10 year old's dream

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic location for this condo that is perfect for a smaller family. We've been promising our daughter (Amelia) that we would bring her to "her" island one day, and we couldn't have picked a better spot. Secluded and quiet, yet only a couple blocks from the ocean, restaurants and shopping, this was one of the best values I've found at a beach in quite some time. Owner is fantastic in her communication and detail of anything and everything you would need to know for your stay. We can't wait to make a return trip to "Amelia Escape".

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. Everything was in place as depicted in the rental description. Walk to the beach and Sliders restaurant was only 5 minutes which was fantastic. I attended a conference at the Omni (which would have been 3x the price for rent) and it was only about a 10 minute drive. The unit is also very convenient to the pool. The bath and kitchen may need some updating but everything was clean. We did not need to contact the owner for any reason while we were there.

Owner's Response: Yes, we are a very budget friendly alternative to the Omni. We keep our prices low for families. If I had the Omni budget I'd order those new kitchen cabinets today, but I'm still shopping around on quotes. Stay tuned for updates. New dining table and chairs for 6 arrive this week. :)

Great Family vacation spot

  • 4 of 5

The condo was perfect for our family of five. We had everything we needed to enjoy the beach. The walk to the beach was easy and the boardwalk section of the walk was pretty and in the shade. The beach was beautiful and we enjoyed downtown Fernandina. The restaurant recommendations were spot on.

Thank you for providing a perfect family vacation spot.
