Amelia Island has 13 miles of pristine beaches. It is a beach vacation to get away from it all - there is little night life in terms of 'south beach. Perfect for young families, honeymooners who want to get away together, or folks who just want to relax. Yet, the location is accessible to all shopping and has fabulous restaurants nearby. But if you want to plant yourself somewhere and escape - just bring groceries - the home has everything you need to hardly ever leave - and if you forgot anything one of 4 grocery stores is a 10 minute drive away.
There are many state parks nearby in addition to the miles of beach. Fort Clinch, with the fort from the 1800s restored is great to see. Much wildlife to see on various hiking trails.
Water activities include chartering a boat, sunset cruises, cruises to see sea life and wild horses, fishing - deep sea, pier and shore, surfing.
Fernandina Municipal Public Golf course is regardeded as one of the finest in the southeast - 5 min drive away.
Dining: From the Ritz Carlton restaurant 'Salt' 15 min drive south to romantic restaurants in downtown historic district 15 minute drive north to the casual bar/restaurant walking distance from our home - there is everything you could want for an island getaway.
Shopping: There is quaint local shopping in the historic downtown Fernandina Beach and other places on the island. There is Town Center, one hour drive away in Jacksonville, which has every shop imaginable if you are staying a long time. Supermarkets, walmart and pharmacies are on the island.

Houses proximity to the beach makes it a superb choice!
We have been staying at this home every year for the past 5 and will continue!
Great location with easy access to the beach across the street. Clean and well maintained.
We had a wonderful relaxing week. The owners and property managers were great and very attentive. One of the best vacation locations we've visited.
Perfect size and location!
Everything about our stay was pretty much perfect! We had a larger group with kids so we wanted to make sure we had space and as close to the beach as possible. Walking to the beach with several bags, coolers, chairs and your kids was a breeze! Just across the street was the walkway over the sand dunes to the beach. We pretty much had the beach to ourselves and it was a holiday weekend! We were supplied with everything we needed to cook meals as well. Carolyn was very prompt at replying to messages and other questions. Only complaint was the mattresses were firmer than we all like but I think everyone is partial to their own beds :) Will definitely keep this property in mind for our next trip! Thanks for being great hosts!!
Very comfortable and easy access to everything you could wish for . Very clean condo
This condo worked out well for us for our time while working in Jacksonville- the unit was very clean and well kept. furnishings are getting a bit worn but everything was in good working order and location is very convenient to all the amenities you could want to enjoy.
An easy walk to the beach and the beach area was pristine and very enjoyable.
Thank you for a nice stay
Very nice,enjoyed staying there.
The owners were very accommodating. The property manager (Britney) was very helpful when I called. The house was very clean when I checked in. The only issue I had was with the neighbors dog was allowed by his owners to do his business in others yards. I ended up cleaning up after him during the time when my pets were with me. They stayed with me for two weeks only. The trash can was taken,not sure who. I suspected the trash company because it did have a hole it. Britney helped me with that problem. I felt very comfortable. It was nice to be able to see the ocean from the house and enjoyed the access to the beach. There is plenty of things close by to do. Grocery stores are close. Also nice to have access to a garage for my car. Thankful to have the opportunity to stay.
Property was very nice and well equiped (as advertised)!
The town, home and beach community combined for a perfect vacation. Located a short ride from town and directly across the road from the beach the house was very clean and well appointed. Carolyn (owner) and her property manager were responsive and very gracious to deal with. We would highly recommend this property to anyone seeking a laid back beach experience and will definately return for another vacation at her home on Amelia Island.
Home is across the street from the beach with ocean view from Living room and balcony. 10 minutes drive from The Ritz restaurants and spas, golf courses (public and private), Ft. Clinch state park, and downtown Fernandina Beach.
