Imagine a place where, practically everywhere you roam, you see and hear the Atlantic surf. Welcome to our home!
This two-bedroom, two-bath condo is located on the penthouse (7th floor) of Ocean Place, one of Amelia's most prestigious developments. There are high ceilings and no footsteps overhead. We are located just steps from the Ritz Carlton in Summer Beach and host spectacular views of the Island's white, sandy beaches.
Your professionally decorated home away from home has beach colors and first class coastal furnishings. There are tile floors in the kitchen, baths, and halls. The remainder is warm bamboo hardwood accented with colorful area rugs. The bedrooms occupy opposite ends of the condo, providing privacy for those who desire it. Each bedroom has a flat-screen TV with DVD and its own full bath with shower and plush towels. The master features a king pillow-top bed appointed with soft, luxurious linens. Open the balcony doors and be lulled to sleep by the rythmic sound of ocean surf. The second bedroom offers twin beds with quality linens.
The full-service kitchen with Corian countertops is open to the living and dining areas. A stove, oven, microwave, dishwasher, refrigerator/freezer, coffee maker, coffee grinder, toaster, blender, and every other conceivable cooking and dining need are provided. Enjoy your meals on a dining table made of driftwood topped with glass.
When you are ready to relax, entertain yourselves by watching a movie on the large flat-screen TV in the living area. If you prefer, wind down with music or settle onto the sofa with one of the books from our library.
If you must stay in touch with the office (the first day at most!), we have desk space as well. If that is a little too formal, enjoy keeping in touch with family and friends through the free wi-fi and nationwide long distance telephone service.
You can sip coffee, or a cocktail, on your private balcony overlooking the pools and beach. There also is a spot where you can have a romantic dinner oceanside.
When you are ready to get some sun, it is only steps to the beach. Or, you can bask by one of the two fresh-water pools as the children are happily splashing in the shallow end.
When you are ready to explore the Island, you can take one of the many bike trails or a leisurely walk on the beautiful shaded, meandering path adjacent to Ocean Place. In just 10 minutes by car, you can browse through the many quaint shops and watering holes in downtown Fernandina Beach.
Our retreat is perfect for week-long getaways, winter escapes, or temporary lodging for executives. It contains EVERYTHING you will need (except clothes, of course) to live happily for any length of time. The condo will accommodate 4 people comfortably, but there is a sofa bed which will allow you to entertain a couple more.
We provide linens (including beach towels), a beach umbrella, beach chairs, and many other conveniences.

Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: The owners reside in Prospect, Kentucky, a suburb of Louisville. John is a labor and employment attorney, and Patricia is a retired attorney. They have 3 grown children and a pampered dog. Suzanne Baker assists them in rental management and scheduling.
Why the Owner Chose Amelia City: The owners fell in love with Amelia Island in 2008. During a charity auction at their daughter's high school, they purchased a week-long stay on Amelia Island. During that visit, they discovered their retirement haven. The Island has a wonderful laid back atmosphere and a lot to do.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: Obviously, the ocean views from the penthouse floor are spectacular. At night, open the balcony doors to the bedroom and fall asleep to the sound of the surf.
