Overview

About the property

Our Condo Is 1600 Sq. Ft. With 3 Bedrooms And 2 Full Baths With Ocean Views

The Kiernan Condo is your home away from home!! We want you to enjoy it as much as we do!! The condo is very spacious (over 1600 sq. Ft) which makes it easy to spread out and relax with family and friends. In December 2015, we remodeled the guest bathroom and May 2015, we updated and remodeled the kitchen, as well as part of the living room to add to the enjoyment of your holiday in our home. We also recently replaced the living room furniture, added new artwork, new chandelier, new linens, a new refrigerator, new washing machine and freshened up the home with new paint. We offer free secured WiFi for our Kiernan condo guests, as well as free long distance phone calls in the US.

The master bedroom has a king bed, along with a flat screen TV with Comcast cable and its own private bathroom. It also has a sliding glass door to the lanai or you can just lay in bed and enjoy looking out to the ocean while you sip your morning coffee. The second bedroom has two double beds, which is always a great space for the kids! The third bedroom has a queen bed and is across the hall from the second bedroom. The second bathroom (remodeled Dec 2015) is conveniently located for guests to share between the bedrooms.

The kitchen is stocked with everything you need....microwave, dishwasher, coffee maker (essential!) toaster, blender and so much more! It is ready for entertaining a big family meal or just preparing a romantic dinner for two.

The dining room seats eight comfortably around the table, as well as two bar stools at the counter. You can also enjoy your meals or drinks on the lanai, let the wind blow through your hair and watch the pelicans fly by.

The property has a heated swimming pool (in cool months) for all guests to enjoy, but there is NO life guard....So parents must be with the kids at all times. The pool area has lots of lounge chairs where you can just enjoy the peacefulness of the palm trees and the ocean air. From the pool, there is a private boardwalk which takes you over the dunes to the long, quiet beaches on the Atlantic. We love our beach access as our beach is usually very quiet from the crowds of people and you can nearly have it to yourself to enjoy!

About Elizabeth

Our family enjoyed a holiday on Amelia Island in 2000 while visiting from San Francisco and fell in love with the area! We bought the condo shortly after our trip and frequently visited from California with our two young children.

Our family now live minutes away from the condo and are always available to personally help our guests. We have always tried to make it as comfortable as possible as we wanted it to be a relaxing home away from home for all of our guests.

I am also a licensed Amelia Island/Fernandina Beach Realtor, so if you just can't get enough of island living on your holiday and want to buy a second home, investment property or permanently move here, I will be happy to help you find your perfect home.

Elizabeth purchased this condo in 2000

Why Elizabeth chose Amelia Island

We love that The Pelicans condos is a small condo complex, only 27 units. The property has parking under the building, which is great for the hot summer days and your car never heats up.....or on rainy days it is so easy to bring up the groceries in the elevator and stay dry! The private Pelicans boardwalk is a great amenity that takes you straight out to our beautiful beaches on Amelia Island.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us. We just needed a quick Spring Break getaway from the frozen Midwest. Though the weather was cooler here as well, we still enjoyed the sun and the beach. Your kitchen is well-stocked, of which we took great advantage as we cooked all our meals. Our teenaged boys enjoyed several of your DVDs. Mostly it was great for us all to be together in a quiet setting with such great beach access. We also really enjoyed Fort Clinch State Park!!

Best rental experience possible!

  • 5 of 5

I have rented probably hundreds of condos/cabins/houses in my life and can truly say this is the best experience yet. Elizabeth is very responsive and she treats you not just as a renter but as a guest in her own home. There is nothing to want for in this condo --the kitchen is fully stocked with everything you could want (and it all works), the "beach closet" is brimming with beach toys, chairs, umbrellas, etc; even beach towels are provided! All of the beds are comfortable, as is the living and dining and patio furniture, and it is very tastefully decorated -- even live plants throughout. We will definitely return!

This is truly a home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This is NOT your typical condo! It has everything you could want or need while on vacation. Beautifully decorated, well equipped with everything from cooking spices to beach chairs, this is one of the nicest condos I have ever stayed in anywhere! The owner, Elizabeth, is an island resident so we got to meet her and knew if we needed anything we could easily contact her. We had a great vacation and will definitely stay here again.

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family has vacationed at Amelia Island at the Pelican's since the mid 80's. We love it! We have stayed in different units, but the Kiernan Condo has been the best! We have rented this unit for several years now. It is very nicely furnished, and Elizabeth is always updating. The kitchen is well stocked with needed items, and there are always plenty of linens. It feels like coming home for us!

Fabulous Family Spring Break

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful vacation we just returned from on beautiful Amelia Island! I highly recommend that you consider this excellent property for your family retreat. Elizabeth made everything easy for us in her clear communication before our visit. The condo is on the third floor of a building that sits along the main street of the island. There was no road noise even though the balcony faced out of the side with ocean views and a view of the entrance both. The layout was perfect - two bedrooms in the "back," their shared bathroom, then the kitchen, dining room, and living room with the master near the balcony. We made use of the provided beach chairs, toys, wifi, board games, dvds, cable tv, washing machine, dryer, hair dryers, food basics - all wonderful to have. Bring your own beach towels.

We ate at The Surf just down the block - very good despite rough Tripadvisor reviews. Townies Pizza delivered to the condo building - great food! We really enjoyed a walk along the Greenway - even saw an alligator! Don't miss Fort Clinch - the pier is spectacular! On a rainy day we traveled down to Mayport to have some world famous shrimp. You'll need a car to visit all the sites.

Kiernan Condo

  • 5 of 5

We love to vacation at Amelia Island. This year we stayed at the Kiernan condo with our family of 4 and attended the 2016 Concours d’Elegance. The condo was just as described, very comfortable with plenty of room. This was our first time staying at the Pelicans and Elizabeth greeted us upon arrival with a big smile. The complex was not crowded and the parking, elevator and luggage carts were very convenient. The condo was spacious and very clean. We cooked several meals in the well equipped kitchen. The beds and linens were very comfortable and there were plenty of towels. Also, the furniture was very comfortable.

We would definitely recommend this condo and will stay here again when we return to the island. Thank you Elizabeth for your hospitality and for being so accommodating with our arrival and departure times and for providing information about the 2016 Concours d’Elegance event.

Feel at Home at the Beach

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Kiernan condo with our family of 6 the week after Christmas. The condo was just as described, very comfortable with plenty of room for 6 adults. We were able to cook several delicious meals in the well-stocked kitchen. It was nice having the spices, oils and vinegars in the pantry so we didn't have to purchase those. All the beds and linens were very comfortable and there were plenty of towels. While our condo doesn't have a direct view of the beach, we did have a good view from the balcony and the master bedroom. The kitchen and guest bathroom have been remodeled recently and we loved the beach decor throughout the condo. All the furniture was very comfortable.

Even though we were visiting at the end of December, we were lucky to have some very warm weather and were able to use the heated pool and enjoy walking on the beach. The condo has a very short private walk to the beach and is located on a nice, non-crowded part of the beach. We also enjoyed the tennis courts located right on the property.

We would definitely recommend this condo and will stay here again when we return to the island. Thank you Elizabeth for your hospitality and for being so accommodating with our arrival and departure times.
