Amelia Island Resorts condo description

Best of Beachwood!
Why be overlooked by your neighbors or listen to elevator noises? Hate to hear footsteps on your head early or late? Suitcases rolling by your door? Our top floor, back corner unit enjoys maximum privacy, with a beautiful view of the surrounding live oaks and lagoon.We love to sit on the balcony and watch the birds in the canopy.

Our unit is warm and cozy, with comfortable chairs, soft carpeting, and extra linens, towels, and cooking equipment. There are plenty of pillows and blankets. We've stayed in those sterile, decorator units with cold, slippery tile, no chairs with reading lamps, no books or games, and the absolute minimum number of dishes. Our unit is equipped for our family, and we're sure your family will enjoy it as well. We've made sure it has everything you need except your bathing suit!

We first visited the AAA four diamond Omni Amelia Island Plantation in 1992, before 'green resorts' or 'ecotourism' had been imagined. The beautiful natural setting and balance of amenities and unspoiled areas kept us coming back. AIP has been awarded Conde Nast's Reader's Choice Award as well as the Florida Department of Environmental Protection's Green Lodging Designation. We often stay without using our car, either walking just across the street and down the boardwalk to the ocean-easy to use a stroller-and biking to get around the 1350 acre resort. From Easter Vacation to the height of summer, it never feels crowded, and there are so many different things to do that even our 20 year old sons love to visit and spend family time.

Our unit is cozy and comfortable, nicely decorated, but not so fussy that it can't be enjoyed by families with children.The layout maximizes privacy, and 1200 square feet give everyone room to relax without being on top of each other.
We enjoy cooking, so the kitchen is well-stocked, with plenty of dishes and every kind of pot, pan or utensil to make any meal-including your Thanksgiving or Easter Feast!

The top floor, back corner of the building location of our unit guarantees a maximum of privacy with a minimum of noise. We have access to the elevator, without being able to hear elevator noises.
The building's pool is almost always empty, and a great place to relax after a day on the beach. Our other favorite spot is our west facing balcony at sunset, where we enjoy a glass of wine and observe the birds, raccoons ,and other Florida wildlife. You'll never regret any time you spend on Amelia Island.

              Year Purchased: 1995

              About: We are a nature-loving upstate New York family who were lucky enough to stay at the Plantation in the early stages, and found the natural setting and lack of over-development suited our idea of a vacation retreat exactly! Tom is an environmental studies professor at a small college, and Laurel works in health care. Our 3 children, from age 13-23, all have grown up visiting the Resort, and still love to spend family time there. We visit once or twice a year, and do most of the painting, decorating, and repairs ourselves.

              Why Amelia Island Resorts:
              We love to go to Amelia to get our shot of sun in the mud season, and true heat in the summer. The easy beach access, plus the natural setting, bike and hiking trails, and the way we can enjoy everything the 1350 acre resort has to offer without even using our car appeals to us. We compared many other 'resorts' before buying at Amelia-we kept saying-'Why do we go anywhere else?' The nature walks and truly unspoiled setting offer us the opportunity to bird-watch, swim, fish, hike, look for shark's teeth or migrating butterflies or sea turtles-there's something every season to enjoy that is special. We also love nearby Little Talbot Island-rated one of the top ten beaches in the world- and historic Fernandina, with its many great restaurants. Fort Clinch, with its fabulous fishing pier, biking paths, and historic re-enactors is another perennial favorite.

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              We like the privacy of our top-floor unit with the easy access to all the facilities. We swim in our quiet unit pool or walk across the street on the stroller friendly boardwalk to the ocean. We attend the birding walks with the naturalist, or head out to Walker's Landing by ourselves with the binoculars and a camera. We go to Fort Clinch or the Kingsley Plantation to learn about 'Old Florida', or send an afternoon at Little Talbot State Park, one of the most beautiful beaches in the US, where we have never seen more than 20 people in 3 miles. We watch the tides roll in and out while we body-surf or hunt for shark's teeth-Laurel has 'the eye' and can find one about every 15 minutes on average. We go to the on-site restaurants for excellent cuisine, or shop at Harris Teeter and cook our own dinner.
