Property description

"Amelia's best beach house" is located in the gated Amelia Island Plantation at 7 Laurel Oak Road in the pretty Heron Oaks area across from the plantation tennis courts. All houses are beautiful Nantucket style homes with gray cedar shakes and lots of white trim.

PRIVATE POOL - Ours is one of a few private homes in the Plantation with its own private pool. It also has a soothing waterfall and is lighted at night for nice ambiance. Toddler alarms are installed on all doors leading to the pool area.

GOLF - Our guests may now enjoy golf on the beautiful Oak Marsh and Ocean Links courses inside the Amelia Island Plantation. Please inquire with the owner at 706-540-3332 or 706-549-0554.

GOLF CART - Have fun driving your own 4-seater golf cart around the Plantation and to the beach.

BIKES - For your convenience are three new cruiser bikes, a child's 18" bike, Big Wheel, scooter and helmets. If needed, more bikes can easily be rented and delivered.

THE BEAUTIFUL HOME - Our well maintained open floor plan house was professionally designed and tastefully furnished by the owner/interior designer. The master bedroom located on the main floor has a King bed with comfortable pillowtop mattress. The master bath includes double vanities, soaking tub and separate shower. The huge master closet off the bedroom is large enough to accommodate a crib or small bed. Upstairs one bedroom houses two double beds and a private bath. The second bedroom houses twin beds and also has its own private bath. The private study off the living area with full bath can be used as a 4th bedroom. Linens and an inflatable mattress are housed in the study closet. New flat screen tvs have recently been installed in all bedrooms, living room and study. One can enjoy the cd players, dvds, surround sound in living room, and an extensive house stereo system that also includes the pool area. The gas fireplace in the living warm provides warmth and coziness should it be needed in the cooler months.

GOURMET KITCHEN - Everything needed for a great and easy cooking experience includes an extensive spice drawer, three coffee makers (one Keurig), crockpot, blender, toaster, toaster oven, etc. Eight guests can sit around the dining room table while enjoying the view of the pool and listening to the soothing waterfall.

WIFI - Free wifi is available throughout the house. Two separate working desks are provided for you convenience and privacy.

NEW GAS GRILL - The grill is located in the 2nd private courtyard right off the kitchen.

PROXIMITY TO BEACH - Take a two minute ride in your own golf cart or car to a small private parking pad on the beach side (owner will be happy to give directions). One can also enjoy a beautiful seven minute scenic walk to the ocean.

PROXIMITY TO VILLAGE - A very short bike ride or walk will take you easily to the Village. Here you will find the Spa, shopping, restaurants (our favorite is PLAE), the Saturday morning Farmer's Market, ice cream at Marche Burrett, pizza at Natural Slice (the very best pizza and they also deliver!) You can also enjoy just sitting by the pond and people watching or rent a Segway at Amelia's Wheels. Everyone will enjoy the new miniature golf
course.

ADDITIONAL AMENITES - We provide for your enjoyment and convenience hairdryers, all linens, beach towels, new beach chairs, umbrella, boogie boards, numerous beach and sand toys, puzzles, games, a booster seat and pac n' play.

COMMENTS FROM PREVIOUS RENTERS - "Bright, happy and lots of natural light," "Not your ordinary beach rental," "This house has great vibes!"

The quaint town of Fernandina is just a 15 minute drive from our house. There one will find many wonderful restaurants, shopping and a fantastic fudge shop. Brett's on the water is great for lunch. Many menus are available at the house.

The beautiful Ritz Carlton is only five minutes away.

Car: Recommended

Located in the lovely area Heron Oaks, one can enjoy a beautiful five-minute walk over Red Maple Lake to the ocean. Biking, swimming in our pool, scenic walks, viewing wild life, sunsets and kayaking at Walker's Landing are all part of a wonderful, relaxing vacation within the Plantation. The Spa, the restaurants, and numerous shops are all available within walking distance. Drive a few minutes to downtown Fernandina and view the boats in the harbor, have lunch at Brett's on the water and stroll the unique town with its quaint shops and more excellent restaurants.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: We are an active couple who live in Athens,Georgia. Kim is an attorney and Sheryl is an interior designer. We have two children, Courtney who is married to Jason, an attorney in Atlanta, and Chad who also lives in Athens. We have a precious eight year old grandson and a three year old granddaughter. We adore Amelia Island but are not able to get there as much as we would like; therefore, we would like to share our comfortable house with you.

Why the Owner Chose Amelia Island Resorts:
We visited Amelia many times before we built our home. We have both always wanted a pool, which we were able to have. This is a fabulous family house where we enjoy special times and holidays with our children and grandchildren and also many friends. We are unable to get to Amelia as much as we love it; therefore, we would like to share it with others and hope they enjoy it as much as we do.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The peace and quiet of our area and the soothing sound of the waterfall at the pool are a few things we really enjoy. We love to be able to walk to the beach and the Village. Biking and watching sunsets at Walker's Landing are also very enjoyable. Actually, there is nothing we don't enjoy at Amelia!!
