Adjoining The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island, this is the perfect spot for your next getaway! 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 clean and bright and the master bathroom has a double vanity with two sinks, a shower and garden tub for a relaxing soak.

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 51' flat screen 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 in 2013 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.

Our condo also includes the AT&T 'triple play' package with free high speed wifi, TV programming including HBO with a HD DVR and free local and nationwide long distance telephone.

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 Northeast Florida

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 Vacation Condo

  • 5 of 5

Brad and Aimee's condo is lovely and the location is perfect. We enjoyed being so close to the ocean and walking the beautiful beach everyday. Brad and Aimee went out of their way to provide us with info on Amelia Island before we arrived and checked in on us during the week. We would highly recommend this condo.

Wonderful week at beautiful Amelia. Ocean Place 18 is a destination that i will return to many times in the future. Brad and Aimee are gracious and intent on your stay being one of memory. The condo is wonderful, beautiful views, wonderful beach, convenient to everything on Amelia. Golf is very good especially at the Golf Club of Amelia. Being adjacent to the Ritz is a real plus. Brad checked on us during the week to make sure everything was going well. Thank you for a very, very memorable week. I will be back.

Absolutely wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

After 10 years of staying at the Ritz Carlton for summer vacation, we decided to rent Brad & Aimee's condo because it had more room than a Ritz suite. We were not sure what to expect because seriously, what can top the Ritz, right? Well this condo did!!! It is beautifully decorated, clean, comfortable and fully stocked with everything you can think of. The view is absolutely amazing. We enjoyed sitting outside on the deck and drinking coffee, playing bingo with our sons and relaxing. Inside the beds (great linens), leather sofas and table/chairs were so comfortable. Their recreation closet was amazing and they share the contents with their guests: chairs, umbrella, pool/beach toys, boogie boards, etc etc. We could not figure out how to work the TV (we are technologically challenged) and Brad patiently helped us twice over the phone until we got it to work. There were extra blankets, pillows, beach towels and plenty of bath towels. We utilized the menus they provided from local restaurants and enjoyed delivery 2 nights! We also went to the Ritz to dine and utilize their pool. We thought we would miss the Ritz and their amenities but none of us did because you still have access to them. We cannot wait to return to Amelia and plan to rent from Brad & Aimee again - hopefully we can return more than 1/year!

Tranquil fun!

  • 5 of 5

Early risers can step to the spacious balcony and see a red-gold sun come up from the ocean; a beach quiet and still vacant of footprints; enjoy the rhythm of waves meeting the cool sand; and, hear various birds practicing their calls - a wonderful way to start the day. Then, step back into this comfortable 4th floor condo for fresh coffee and a bagel, and a chat with family or friends before going to the beach, maybe to search for shark teeth or shells, or just wade. We did these things and much more. Amelia Island has great places to visit and dine. This condo is well equipped and hospitably furnished. We greatly enjoyed our visit. There is No Doubt we Will Return.

Our family of four had a wonderful time. We've stayed at dozens of beachfront places (Atlantic & Gulf) over the years and this place is the best. Location, size, balcony, quiet beach, comfortable, clean, well-stocked, it was everything we hoped for. And Brad was very helpful, he gave us a head's up about the Ritz doing fireworks one night and the view from the balcony was phenomenal. Very happy, would stay again.
