Couldn't Possibly Be Any Happier!
Couldn't Possibly Be Any Happier!
I knew, having previously lived on Amelia Island, when my 79 year old mom, for the first time ever mentioned she would like to get away this winter from the cold of upstate New York, that Fernandina Beach would be a great choice....provided we could find a suitable rental, of course! I was apprehensive about dropping her off in a new place where she knew no one at all. Right away, after speaking with the owner of this unit, my fears were laid to rest. Tom is a super-friendly person, and has been there for my mom whenever anything comes up, whether it be dropping off keys when she was locked out, or recommending a reputable mechanic when her car needed work. I sleep easy knowing Tom is nearby in case anything comes up! The townhouse is extremely clean, has charming/fun furnishings and a porch that overlooks the lush landscape. It is stocked with virtually everything you would ever need so you won't have to bring anything at all except your clothes/toiletries. Forest Ridge is SO CLOSE to the beach - walk outside and within literally three minutes you will be standing on one of the most beautiful beaches in the United States! There's a swimming pool, tennis courts, fountains and plenty of parking. This is an extremely secure, safe neighborhood, and all of the neighbors have been very friendly, as is seemingly everybody on Amelia Island! My mom is making many close friends and having a blast - shopping in the antique stores, dining with friends, walking on the beaches, birdwatching, going on cruises, enjoying the festivals, admiring the architecture of downtown Fernandina Beach with its tree-lined streets, people-watching at the harbor and so much more! Tom is very flexible and easy to deal with. This vacation rental is a spectacular value - we were pleasantly surprised by how spacious it is and what a stunning setting it's in. Everything about this transaction has exceeded our expectations! We couldn't be more pleased and undoubtedly you will have the same positive experience : )

Owner response: Thank you for the wonderful review. We have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know your mom and watching her enjoy Amelia Island and all the outstanding activities. It has been our pleasure to have her stay with us. What a delightful lady!
My sons and I had a great time this summer in Fernandina! The condo had everything we needed and was very clean. The complex was very quiet and only a few minutes walk from the beach. Tom was very helpful and provided us with area activities. I have been going to Fernandina since I was small, and I just love the island. It is a great spot to relax! The beaches are clean and family oriented. My youngest son loves history, so we went and toured Fort Clinch. The beaches at the park there are great too! If you get tired of seafood.....Peppers is an excellent Mexican restaurant downtown.

Fun In The Sun On Amelia Island
What a great place !! I walked the beach in the mornings' which is only minutes from the condo and the area is so nice and clean. There were lots of places to see and things to do. I had my kayakes and went on the river which was very nice. The condo was very neat and clean, with washer and dryer in the condo (thats always nice to have) There were games and kites for the kids. The owners were very nice and there if I needed anything or information. There were books in the condo of places' to see and eat which also was very helpfull. I would recommend this condo to anyone who wants a neat, clean and friendly place to stay at a great PRICE ! Thank You For A Great Visit

Wonderful Beach Condo!
Wonderful Beach Condo!
My family and I had a wonderful stay in this property! It was, comfortable, spotlessly clean and had all of the amenities necessary for a great stay. The unit was quiet and peaceful. The beach was an easy 5 minute walk away and there were many good restraunts nearby. The kitchen was well stocked with tools, dishes, pots/pans etc (all very clean), the beds were comfortable and the washer and dryer were large, clean and easy to use. My kids appreciated the closet in their bedroom which was stocked with kites and other fun beach toys. The owners were very friendly, helpful and responded to our questions quickly with useful information. I would definitely recommend this property to others who would like a really nice place to stay while on Amelia Island!
