About the property

2 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 4-6

Beautiful, spacious 3rd floor oceanfront condo with virtual floor to ceiling east-facing windows in living/dining room and both bedrooms to provide breathtaking oceanfront views. Come, get-away and relax as you enjoy the ocean in your front yard!

We are located just South of Main Beach in Fernandina Beach. Because of this our beach is life-guard protected all summer long. We are only 1.5 miles from historic downtown with shopping and restaurants as well as a quick walk to the entrance of Fort Clinch.

We have 2 bedrooms, one with a queen bed and the second with 2 twins that can be converted to a king. There is a queen sized sleeper sofa in the living room so that we can accommodate a total of 6. There is a long ocean-front balcony which is a perfect place to watch the sunrise, see dolphins swim by or just sit and enjoy the ocean sounds.

About Kathy Gerstner

We are both originally from the midwest but are currently ministering at a church in Arizona. We find the desert to be beautiful, but we miss the ocean and look forward to being back near the coast when we retire!

Kathy Gerstner purchased this condo in 2010

Why Kathy Gerstner chose Northeast Florida

We chose to buy this condo as a potential retirement home because we love the benefits of being on the East coast as well as the small town atmosphere of Fernandina Beach.

What makes this condo unique

We fell in love with this condo when we walked through the front door and immediately saw the palm trees and the ocean. I am still struck by it every time I open the front door! We also love that the unit itself is so spacious.

Terraces at Beachside Condo was amazing!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing few days at this condo! The location was perfect...right on the beach. You never know what you are going to get but this condo exceeded all of my expectations. It had everything we needed and was spacious and roomy. Kathy was amazing to rent from. I am looking forward to my next trip to Fernandina Beach and will definitely like to stay here again.

Perfect family beach vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was our sencond stay at this property and we love it! Close to many great restaurants, skateboard park, Fort Clinch and best of all steps from the beach. The balcony is perfect for enjoying a cup of coffee and watching the sunrise. The pool is great for when you need a break from the beach. The condo is clean with new furnishings and has everything you need. The owner responds quickly to questions and is eager to do whatever it takes to make sure you have an enjoyable stay. We've already made our reservation for next year. Can't wait to go back!

Ideal Beach Rental Amelia Island Fernandina Beach

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this condo so much that we rebooked for next year before we even returned home. We plan to make this an annual trip and visit the same week each year so you better not book our week!! It's a good 13 hour drive for us so you know it's good if we're willing to make that trip. The condo is perfectly furnished and comfortable. It was just me and my husband for most of the week, but my in-laws joined us for two nights and they loved the condo too. They were so complimentary that I wouldn't be surprised if they booked a week or more themselves. I had been to Amelia Island years ago and stayed at a B&B a few doors down, so I was familiar with the area. My only regret is that it took us so long to return. I had planned to visit in 2016 but this condo was booked up early, so I decided to book it for the following year. That's right, I booked this condo over a year in advance, and I am so glad I did. We noticed several other condos while we were on the island that I thought I might be interested in for a future visit but honestly, none of them were as nice as this one in the same price range. There is a beach and ocean view from every room. There is a roof in your view to the left, but it's not a big deal. It's lower than the balcony, doesn't block the entire left view, and again, not a big deal. This time I traveled with beach chairs and towels but there are actually some for your use that come with the condo. There's a whole bag of sand toys and buckets (you will need these when you go shelling!), three bikes, extra toiletries, etc in storage closet as well as designated beach towels under the bathroom sinks. The showers were stocked with big bottles of body wash, shampoo, and conditioner (Dove or Ivory brand I think ). These are not always provided when you rent a condo and if it is, it's almost always a tiny amount that won't last you more than a day of so. There was a big bottle of laundry detergent too...another thing that's not usually provided unless it's just one or two pods. Just lots of little extra things that really add up to making it that much easier to enjoy the stay at this condo.
