Newly updated and luxuriously appointed throughout. Enjoy the comfortable but refined decor in every room and high end kitchen of this spacious oceanfront condominium. This is the nicest place to stay, and literally right next door to The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island!

Discover paradise on Amelia Island, it is the perfect spot for families or couples and one of the most popular beaches on the East Coast. Located in an exclusive community on the unspoiled barrier island, this condo strikes the perfect balance between upscale luxury and carefree relaxation. For the eigth-consecutive year, Amelia Island is one of the top 10 U.S. island destinations and the number one Florida island destination in the Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards. Amelia Island was also voted one of the USA Today Readers' Choice 10 Best U.S. Islands. You will find these accolades are well deserved.

This is not an investor property rented by a management company, this is our 2nd home. We think you’ll agree the difference is noticeable in the quality of furnishings and the care we take maintaining the unit and making it comfortable and inviting. This condo is a Prestige Property Winner.

Newly decorated with updated furnishings, fixtures and art, the tile floors and earth tones invoke the surrounding sand and dunes. Blues and greens from the ocean accent the pleasing color palette. This unit has all the luxuries and comforts of home. Floor-to-ceiling glass doors welcome you to your huge private 4th floor oceanfront balcony. Enjoy your morning coffee outside watching dolphins and a passing shrimp boat. Afternoon shade and sea breezes make the oceanfront balcony an inviting spot all day long. This floor plan has the only private balcony in Ocean Place.

There are two bedrooms and two full bathrooms in this spacious and comfortable condo. The master bedroom has a king size bed with a feather mattress topper and quality linens. The bedroom faces the ocean and opens to the private balcony. The second bedroom has a queen and a twin bed. Both bathrooms are recently remodeled. The bathrooms are clean, bright, and luxurious..

The large kitchen is fully appointed with top of the line appliances, not cheap 'rental unit' equipment. There is a tile back splash and under-cabinet lighting that brightly illuminates the Corian solid surface counter tops. Everything is here for you to make a picnic lunch for the beach (including a picnic basket), or for a gourmet cook to prepare a fine meal. The kitchen opens across a breakfast bar to the dining room which boasts a large table and seating for six. Enjoy conversation or watch TV on the new 60" HDTV in the spacious living room. The seating is comfortable and the view of the waves unsurpassed.

The Ritz-Carlton property surrounds this condo. The hotel building is next door, just 100 footsteps away. The Ritz-Carlton has used our condo many times for their guests when they needed additional accommodations. As a guest at our condo you have access to the luxuries and services of the AAA Five Diamond Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island. Enjoy the world class spa or a meal at one of the four restaurants ranging from the five diamond Salt to more casual and kid-friendly settings. The Spa at The Ritz-Carlton has been voted one of the Best Hotel Spas in the 10Best Readers Choice by USA Today. The four bar lounges are available before or after dinner as well.

The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island is unique in North America as the only hotel and restaurant combination to gain the AAA 5 Diamond rating for both the hotel and its fine dining restaurant, Salt. The 5-Diamond status continues today. We encourage our guests to walk over and visit this incredible neighbor.

About Aimee Nitz

We are a family of four with 2 daughters and we love spending time together at the beach. We live in Atlanta and love our trips to 'The Island.' We hope you will enjoy the condo as much as we do!

Why Aimee Nitz chose Amelia Island

We love being right next door to the Ritz-Carlton and walking over to enjoy the amenities. We have been visiting and vacationing on Amelia Island for years. When we decided to buy a vacation home we knew this was the best spot in Florida and along the east coast. We love the restaurants and shops plus all the outdoor activities in the area. We also enjoy a quieter day reading a book while sitting on the beach or our private balcony.

What makes this condo unique

We've worked hard to make our condo comfortable for our guests and ourselves. This is an upscale condominium development and we think we have created a feeling of relaxed luxury in our unit.

The building is located next door to The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island and this provides easy access to their amenities. This just enhances the already great experience you'll have at our condo. We love to walk over in the evening for dinner. Years ago we were married at The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island and its fun to take our daughters to the spot where we had the ceremony.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Happy New Year!! Amelia Island is such a wonderful place to spend New Years and your condo is so special! Fireworks at the Ritz right in front!!! Wow! Yeah! We really appreciated all of the elegant touches and had some very memorable meals - esp. New Years Eve with local shrimp. You are truly lucky to have such a lovely second home. Thank you for sharing it.

Have a wonderful 2013!

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

The condo is lovely and well appointed. The building is in a great location with access to the bars, restaurants and shops in the Ritz Carlton right next door. When the sounds of the crashing waves from the unit call you to the beach, a 5 minute walk across the protected dunes has your toes in the sand. The owners went above and beyond to communicate before and after arrival. If you want hassle-free relaxation in an idyllic setting, this is your place!

Fabulous view, Awesome hosts, Perfect Condo!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently visited Amelia Island to celebrate our anniversary. Brad and Aimee's condo was the perfect location. We had lovely views of the ocean from the living room, bedroom, and balcony. And the condo itself was clean and so inviting and beautiful. While we never needed anything because the place is so well taken care of, they reached out to us several times just to see and make sure all was well. We LOVED this condo and will stay here again!

We're so glad you picked 18 Ocean Place to celebrate your anniversary. We look forward to welcoming you again. Best, Aimee and Brad

I felt sorry for the rest of the world.

  • 5 of 5

While we were there, I did feel sorry for the rest of the world.Brad and Aimee are the perfect hosts, anticipating every need. Communication was easy and the wealth of knowledge provided to us before, during, and after the stay was invaluable. Likely the most relaxing and stress free experience ever on Amelia Island, and we have been coming to the Ritz Carlton NEXT DOOR for years. Still enjoyed all the Ritz has to offer, but we could go "home". Tip top shape, newly remodeled bathrooms a home run. Kitchen most well stocked with everything you could possibly need to prepare or serve. High quality. Do not hesitate. Thanks for everything.

Owner's Response: Mary, We're so glad you enjoyed the advantages of our condo, while also enjoying the Ritz-Carlton next door. We agree, its the best of both worlds! We completely remodeled both bathrooms to give our guests an even better experience. We're glad to hear you enjoyed them. Mostly, we're thrilled you had a "relaxing and stress free experience." We look forward to having you back again! Brad and Aimee 18 Ocean Place

Brad and Aimee have been awesome! They have made this process so easy and even enjoyable! This condo's decor and location is perfect. But, the best part are the little details that can't be ignored make you feel so confortable and at home. My Mom kept saying " top of the line ". Between the condo, Ritz, and the beach, we did not even get in a car for 4 days...Heaven!!! Can't wait to be back. Highly recommend.

Owner's Response: How wonderful that you thought it all "top of the line." We try hard to make our guests feel welcome and at home. It's also wonderful that you had such a great time you didn't feel the need to get in the car! When you return we'll be happy to suggest some spots to visit if you want to venture out, however. We look forward to adding you to our "list" of treasured returning guests! All the best, Brad and Aimee

Awesome condo on Amelia Island!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at 18 Ocean Place for a Birthday /Anniversary celebration getaway. Wow!! The condo was awesome, the minute we arrived we felt at home. Brad and Aimee put so much effort and care into their condo, so nicely decorated, well equipped kitchen, everything we would need for the beach and comfortable furniture and bedding.

I really appreciated how helpful Brad and Aimee were prior to our trip. So quickly responsive answering any question we had about their condo or the area.

The condo is in such a nice area, beautiful beach views, sunrise, bike trails, walking trails and only 10 minutes or so from Fernandina Beach, which is an awesome historic town with wonderful restaurants.

We will definitely be back!!!

Beautiful condo, great location, attentive hosts.

  • 5 of 5

18 Ocean Place is a beautiful condo, very nicely furnished and fully equipped. It has all the amenities you need to enjoy your time in the unit and on the beach. Everything seems to be thought of and provided. The private balcony, as advertised, offers a great view of the beach. The condo is located perfectly for a short drive to enjoy Fernandina Beach and its restaurants and shops, and to zip down to the Omni resort for more restaurants and shops. However, best of all is the Ritz Carlton next door. We walked over one night to have dinner in one of their great restaurants. Brad and Aimee were in constant communication with us to answer any question or concern. Our reservation was for 10 days after hurricane Irma hit Florida. Brad was in contact with us and was very reassuring that the condo would be in perfect condition and that all of Amelia Island would be available during our trip. He was right. It was a pleasure working with them. Our time there was outstanding, and we look forward to returning.
