Northeast Florida Condo Rental Photos and Description

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 steps away.

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.

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.

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location in Amelia Island! Right on the beach with umbrella and chairs waiting for you at no extra cost! So close to historic downtown. We took the Amelia River Cruise at sunset. We saw dolphins, wild horses, a baby alligator, and beautiful birds on Cumberland Island. The condo was great. Everything supplied. 3rd floor ocean view is the best. Did not want to leave. Will be coming back!

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to Amelia Island to this same condo complex. This is the condo you want! The location is perfect, right on the beach and an easy quick drive to the quaint downtown area. This condo is extremely clean, very comfortable and has everything you need plus more for the perfect beach vacation. The view is fantastic. We saw dolphins everyday and loved the shelling. The owners are very responsive and concerned that you have a great vacation. I highly recommend this condo. I know we will be back!

Beautiful view and lovely condo!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of four on a 3-week vacation. This was our last leg of trip and we all agreed it was best way to end our vacation. The ocean view was priceless!! The condo was clean and professionally serviced.

There was a storage room with an abundance of supplies. An extra bonus is there was bikes to use so you don't have to rent bikes to ride and sight see. Kathy responded quickly to our questions and inquiries. Great stay you can't go wrong with this condo! My only recommendation is to update binder with wifi codes and location of storage room, bike lock codes , etc. so you don't have to contact owner for this minor information. Great stay with a great view!

Perfectly Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

This wonderful place exceeded all of my expectations. Such a peaceful place, full of so much love. Very easily accessible, with quick and easy access to the pool and the beautiful beaches. My stay was absolutely remarkable, and I certainly hope to return to this lovely condo at some point in the future.

Peaceful Place by the Sea...

  • 5 of 5

What an outstanding property for a beach stay! The roomy unit is beautifully appointed and the view is spectacular. Everything was in readiness- clean, tidy, stocked with everything we needed. Kathy's advance info e-mail explained things fully, making check-in easy and simple. The beach is readily accessible with beach chairs and towels provided by an attendant from the adjoining hotel. The property is conveniently located near a good restaurant (walking distance) and close the the very charming community of Fernandina Beach where there is much to see and do. Lots of shops, restaurants, galleries, and an interesting boat cruise. We took the sunset cruise with Amelia Island River Cruises and learned a great deal about local lore, and about the shrimping and lumber industries based there. We also learned that The New Adventures of Pippi Longstocking movie was filmed in the village and that the movie shows lots of the highlights of the area. It might be fun to watch the movie before a visit with children and then look for the locations. We saw the horses of Cumberland Island on this boat trip, and learned the story of their life in the wild. This lovely condo provided a most relaxing and peaceful place for a beach stay. It helped that the early spring weather was just perfect, too!

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at Kathy's condo for spring break of 2016. It was a beautiful place. The decor was updated and it had everything you would ever need for the week. It was clean and the view was awesome. It was right on the beach. My son, who is 14, loves to find sharks teeth. The shark teeth he found were absolutely unbelievable. I have never seen anything like these teeth that he found. He found huge sharks teeth, a total of 288 to be exact. He found great white(really nice size ones), megalodon(which was over 4" in size), extinct mako(which were also over 1" in size), mako, sand, bull, lemon, hammerhead, snaggletooth, and tiger(which were also huge). It was pretty great to see these. The weather was gloomy the first 2 days, but after that, was a pretty nice week, especially in March. The beach was beautiful, and you get lounge chairs that are provided(as long as you get down there early enough in the morning to snag them). I love to walk the beach in the morning, and it was just so beautiful and not that crazy busy. There was a quaint little town not far, like 5 minutes, that has restaurants, shops, ice cream and everything else. There is also a restaurant, Sandy Bottoms, right beside the condo, that had great food. You could go there and sit outside and have a drink also if you would like. We visited Fort Clinch, which was really interesting and great to tour. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who wants a nice, relaxing, stress-free beach vacation. Kathy is just an email away also, so if you need anything all you would have to do is email her and she gets back to you pretty quickly. We are already looking to book it again next spring break. Thank you Kathy for a very nice place for my family to get away and enjoy themselves. It really was like home away from home!
