Although the location and size fit our needs and were good, from the moment we arrived we were disappointed. When I see potato chips on the kitchen floor, I grabbed a paper towel to wipe them up and got a handful of dirt. The sunrise was beautiful but I could not see it through the dirty windows which I tried to open but couldn't because they were broken. My sunglasses went between the cushions on the couch and when I moved it the dirt was disgusting. This place is run down and needs a sanitation cleaning.

Great Amelia Island condo

  • 4 of 5

Recently spent a great 4 day week-end with mom and 3 sisters at this condo. Plantation property is beautiful! We found condo to be lovely, comfortable and CLEAN! View is fantastic and just a short walk to the beach. Owner was very accessible both before and during stay. Complex is a little older but unit has been updated nicely and feels newer. Parking covenient and close to elevator. Only giving 4 stars due to window blinds not functioning in master. It gets very bright very early. Owner has new ones on the way.

We stayed at this rental expecting a nice place.First of all in the kitchen the dishes looked very dirty so I put in dishwasher- but as it turns out the element was corroded and it didn't do a very good job of cleaning, so we went out and bought plastic products to use.When we opened freezer portion of refrigerator the shelf was rusted. Not sanitary looking at all.The 1dish towel and cloth provided was threadbare and dingy looking.The top of refrigerator was covered in grease and dust.Layout was nice in living roombut the cushions on couch were stained and dirty.The sliding door leading to balcony was super hard to open and screeched loudly when closing.No working lock on this door. In thebath the shower doors were covered in soap scum and one was off track so you could only move one of the doors.The sliding doors for the closets in all rooms had big gaping holes in the corners and were not clean.The louvered doors going into the laundry and closets were filthy The shower curtain in the bathroom had mildew on bottom. We have rented many times through VRBO in the last 8 years and this one was so bad. We paid more for this unit than we ever had paid in the past - we decided to make the trip at the very last minute and did not take time to look around at other units. We won't make that mistake again. The layout of the unit was nice and it would have been a wonderful week if unit had been clean,not spotless just CLEAN It is really hard to enjoy yourself when your constantly worrying about touching unclean surfaces with food.The baseboards were dirty - I don't mean dusty I mean dirty.We have never written a bad review before but felt obligated to let others know the condition of this unit and for the owners to check it out.Maybe you haven't been to your unit in a while and didn't realize how bad of condition it is in.Please fix up unit or take it off of VRBO it really hurts the reputation.I took pictures if owner is interested - just so you would know these details are legit.Keyless entry was fabulous.You have a nice unit it just needs a lot of work to take care of the wall paint chipped off in big hunks and other basic needs.We would have called and asked for a refund as soon as we arrived and looked around if that had been possible.If it were a hotel we would have refused to stay at all

Owner's Response: I am sorry your stay was not up to your expectations. This is highly concerning to us, I wish we had been aware of your concerns while your were there; we would have been glad to try and address any issues during your stay. We have always had positive reports from our guests. If you would be so kind to provide photos to my email we would be very appreciative. Our housekeeper has been working with us for some time; we have found she does an excellent job and highly trustworthy, and have made her aware of your concerns. We did have the heating & air systems (HVAC) completely replaced shortly before you arrived, and wonder if there could have been some debris from this major system replacement, (the system is behind the louvered doors you reference), HVAC replacements can be dusty. Additionally there was a significant storm right before your arrival, since we are so close to the ocean, this can cause the exterior windows to become dirty from the salt spray. Cleaning these require special cleaning tools. The housekeeper did report she did not have those tools and the exterior windows were not as clean as she desired, this has now been addressed. With the salt spray, the oceanfront sliding glass doors require servicing every now and then or after a major storm, given your feedback we are having these doors checked to ensure they slide easily. We have made the housekeeper aware, and asked for special attention to these issues you raise. Finally we truly regret your stay was not to your expectations and regret we did not have the opportunity to try and make it right while you were there. We are hopeful you will come to Amelia again and consider us.

Amazing summer family vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week of family fun in the sun while staying at this Amelia Island Plantation Villa! What an amazing view of the beach from the balcony! We went to celebrate my mother's birthday and she spent most of her time outside on the balcony! This villa is beautifully kept, fully stocked, and wonderful for families, young and old. We enjoyed most of our meals here. It was the gathering spot! The three bedrooms provide a variety of sleeping options and the large open living spaces make it easy for everyone to visit. The balcony was a great place to watch the fireworks! The master has a wonderful view of the ocean as well. We enjoyed the pool, the beach and all the amenities.

While visiting Amelia Island, we also enjoyed a great French restaurant, Le Clos and a fun family seafood shack, Timoti's. I would recommend both! We also had a very nice Amelia Island River Cruise, enjoyed by all onboard from ages 7 to 85! The men played golf at the Club at North Hampton Golf Course and really enjoyed the beautiful course. We visited the shops and restaurants at the Omni’s Amelia Island Resort and enjoyed the nature center as well as the putt putt golf. It really was a wonderful, relaxing vacation in a beautiful spot. It never got over 85 degrees all week. This is the place to stay for your next vacation! We will be back.

Amelia Island Plantation Condo

  • 4 of 5

Amazing Beaches in this area. A well maintained area for vacationers. We loved the nature trails. The pool was nice, but not heated. The location to the beach was nice. It was just a short walk out from the condo to the beach. The condos were filled with families of all ages. This condo has an amazing view of both the beach and the pool. It was nice to sit on the balcony and read in the morning while watching the pelicans on the ocean. The condo is a close drive to the town of Fernandina. There were some great shops and restaurants. We did a horse and buggy tour of the town that was very interesting. We also did a private boat tour from On the Water Adventures of the backwaters of Amelia Island. The owner of this condo is very attentive and friendly. He provided us with great info. The condo was a roomy 3 bedroom. It was nicely decorated and had everything we needed. I would recommend this area to golfers especially. I would love to visit again in the future and wouldn't hesitate to rent this unit.
