Overview

About the property

Beautifully re-modeled Ground Floor 2 bedroom 2 bath condo with split bedroom floor plan and over-sized covered and furnished deck accessible from both living room and master bedroom. Forget the stairs! Bring the kids to our gorgeous family-friendly home, steps from the pool and only a few minutes stroll from the most wonderful beach.

Our condo sleeps five, and is primarily set up for 2 adults and up to 3 children. It is beautifully furnished with the family in-mind and comes with a 42' flat panel TV in the living room and a 19' flat panel TV in the master bedroom. Enjoy free high-speed wi-fi internet and cable TV. We also have a stroller, booster chair, high-chair, porta-crib, kiddie plates and accessories. So there is no need to pack all that extra stuff that you usually have to drag through the airport or pack into your trunk.

Amelia Landings Beach and Raquet Resort is surrounded by tall shade trees and offers peace and quiet close to all the amenities you and your family might want. We love our home there and look forward to sharing it with other families who want to explore Amelia Island and make those memories that stay with you long after your vacation has finished. You can leave the island but the island never really leaves you.

If you are searching for that perfect place for your family's vacation, that offers everything you might need and so much more at an exceptional value, then we invite you to come stay at our home-away-from-home and make it your home-away-from-home. (City of Fernandina Beach License # 3539).

About Audrey McCarthy

We have been married since 2004 and currently have four young children (3 boys and 1 girl). We have lived in several (way too many) states and are delighted to have finally discovered Amelia Island. Our goal is to move here permanently once we retire. Once you visit you will see why!

Audrey McCarthy purchased this condo in 2012

Why Audrey McCarthy chose Amelia Island

We first fell in love with Amelia Island during a family vacation in January 2011. That short trip changed the course of our lives to a degree insofar as we decided we wanted to make Amelia Island our home after spending only 3 days here. We changed careers in order to allow us to spend more time here and bought our first home near the beach in March 2011. We quickly settled in as part-time residents and made several friends at Amelia Landings. We love the almost 'secret-garden' location, completely hidden from the roadway by tall shade trees and only a very short stroll to the beach and shops. When the opportunity arose to become owners in the Landings we felt that the opportunity was too good to pass up. Our favorite thing about the Landings is the private footpath that leads to the beach and the huge deck on the back of our ground-floor condo and the great layout for having company over or just spending time with the family. We love not having a stairs!

Also, it's only a short drive to all that beautiful Old Town has to offer and there are two great grocery stores, mini-golf, ice cream, post office and antique stores within walking distance.

What makes this condo unique

Location, location, location... and a truly a family-friendly home that will allow you and your family to unwind and explore everything the island has to offer, without compromising that hard-to-find peace and quiet. This condo really has it all.

Quiet Amelia Island

  • 5 of 5

The condo is in a quiet, heavily treed complex of several buildings. (This condo is on the ground floor so be aware there might be someone above you.). The owner Audrey and the property manager Gabe are very, very nice people. They responded immediately to any questions we had. The condo is well stocked with laundry and kitchen supplies, puzzles and games for kids and adults, and beach chairs. It is literally a 5-minute walk to the beautiful beach with pavilions and restrooms (Seaside Park). The historic district of Fernandina Beach is not to be missed. There is a lot to do for adults and kids in the area. I recommend Ft. Clinch, Kingsley Plantation, an Amelia River Cruise, Beach Diner, Doo Wop Diner, and a Sat. Morning Farmers Market tour and cooking class with the chef of Amelia Island Culinary Academy. I was pleasantly surprised with Amelia Island, and this condo is a great location for all the activities, especially the beach.

Our ground-floor condo is located close to all of the best that Amelia Island and Fernandina Beach have to offer. Amelia Island offers the climate and friendliness that you would expect from North Florida without any of the crowded hustle and bustle associated with your typical beach towns. The island is a well-kept secret among those who have discovered it for themselves, from the wonderful Fort Clinch only a three minute drive away to the spell-binding boating and eco-tours that leave regularly from the town's marina, a 5 minute drive away. After you enjoy your morning coffee and juice you can take a leisurely 3-4 minute stroll to one of the most beautiful beaches you will ever see. Boasting over 13 miles of golden sand dunes, you will never grow bored with your walks or collecting the most amazing shells, or occasional sharks' teeth. Amelia Island was made for relaxing, and is especially suited to the family vacation.

Although the drive from Jacksonville Airport to your front door typically takes less than 30 minutes...you might as well be in a different world. It is hard to believe that you can be driving down the island's winding lanes with Spanish moss hanging from the oak trees that cover the road, in such a short distance from a major airport. Of course this also means that if you feel like a day at the AMAZING Jacksonville Zoo...you can be there with the kids in about 25 minutes...not bad considering it feels more like you have changed planets. Of course, the antiquing on Amelia Island is second to none and the quaint stores that give 'Oldtown' such a wonderful ambiance will tempt you to while away hours at a time browsing at their treasures.

But, if you feel the need, there are several outlet malls in Jacksonville that are well worth a visit on those rare occasions when the rain falls.
