I have a boat at the Amelia Island Yacht Basin and am a USCG licensed charter captain. Give me a call and if I am in town we can make arrangements.
This condominium at Fernandina Beach met all of our expectations and looks the way it is pictured in the VRBO information. The owner has stocked it with everything you would need, which does include shampoo, soap, a hair dryer, paper products, coffee filters, pots and pans. You have two bathrooms, one with a stall shower and the other with a sunken tub/shower combo. The queen bed has nice linens and is comfortable. There is on-site, covered parking and an elevator up to each floor of the three-floor facility. This is not a large condo property, which was nice for us. Once inside the building, which is through a password-protected door from the parking area, you enter into a lobby from where you enter your particular condo. This is nice, as it protects you from the outdoor elements and provides a sense of privacy and additional security. The first impression of this condo is how exceptionally clean it is. If you travel a lot, you really appreciate when you are staying in a facility that does not appear to even have a spec of dust. There are two "living areas" with one sofa, two comfy chairs and then another adjacent living space with two loveseats that can make into single beds. Via a private wooden walkway, one steps onto the beach. Right there, at your disposal, are beach lounge chairs and beach umbrellas. Jeff, the owner, also has a closet filled with beach gear, two bicycles and helmets. We have always loved downtown Fernandina -- the shops and restaurants. It is so "non Florida!" We enjoyed Lulu's for lunch, and I highly recommend Espana for dinner (reservations highly recommended). My husband and I would recommend this to others and hope to stay here again when our schedules allow.
Because it was South facing, we thoroughly enjoyed our time watching the sun rise over the ocean and then set from our balcony. Everything was exactly as advertised if not better. I've stayed in many properties but this was the very best appointed of any. Upon arrival we found that it was extremely neat and clean. It was well furnished will all of the conveniences of home. Many which I've never seen in other rentals - like big thirsty towels, kitchen drawers organized precisely, full bars of soap, big satellite tv, large shower. The layout is very open and comfortable. Security is excellent with covered parking. Convenient to beach along with a quick drive to the cute downtown for shopping and dinner. Jeff too was very good to work with being responsive to whatever our inquiry or correspondence. I'd highly recommend this property.
We enjoyed our brief stay and were fortunate to have unseasonably warm weather. The condo was clean and nicely appointed. The walls were however very thin as we could hear the neighbors both beside and above us. We love Amelia Island and the short drive to the airport was very convenient. The proximity to Fernandina Beach and the historic area made driving very easy with lots of great restaurants nearby. We plan on coming back again and staying near the beach.
The place was very clean, well kept and had everything we needed especially the kitchen. It was very spacious and quiet. The people nearby including the hotel crew were very nice. The beach was great though we came when it was a little cold. Don't bother to wash towels and linens, it takes almost 2 hours to dry a load. The owner was quick to answer questions.
The condo is exactly as depicted in photos - clean and ecstatically appealing with all required amenities. The location is fantastic - right on the beach and a nice walk/bike ride to the historic area of Fernandina and Fort Clinch Park. All instructions were clear and well presented and the owner was easy to communicate with and provided all necessary information. Thank you very much for a relaxing holiday in a lovely spot on a beautiful island!
We SO enjoyed staying here for our 15th Anniversary! This condo is so well done & clean (with great towels even!), and in an excellent location. We loved riding the (really nice) bikes in to the cute downtown Fernandina Historic district and through the Fort Clinch State park. We had a great time at the Dickens on Centre festival and the owner Jeff was so nice answering my questions prior to arrival and giving recommendations. The restaurants in the area are wonderful, and we even went to the local fish market and made dinner in one night in the well equipped kitchen. There is plenty of room to spread out and relax, and there is a nice view of the ocean from the windows and porch, which was a great spot for coffee in the morning and wine in the evenings. We also found some beautiful shells on the wide, lovely beach. I am super picky but highly recommend this place. We will definitely stay here again!
