The unit was better than expected! Everything was clean and well-stocked. The location near the pool and beach path was very convenient. The electric locks, ample parking and gated entry were pluses. We've been visiting Fernandina for many years and decided to branch out to a different area...that was a great decision. It was much more comfortable and convenient than our usual place on Sadler. The Jacksons were terrific hosts. Special thanks to Robert for getting us on the network.

My sister and I stayed at this condo for TPC week...on one of the busiest days of the tournament we were there with in 1 hour. The condo was absolutely perfect for us--very clean and well stocked. No need to pack bulky beach towels in your luggage. The pool was right off the patio and the beach access was right there also. Although we ate our meals out, the kitchen had everything you would need to prepare meals in. Thank you Brenda for the updated list of restaurants--many to choose from and all were good--Surf, Sliders, Sandy Bottoms, Crab Trap, Barbara Jeans,Parkway Grill, T-Rays (yes the pancakes were the VERY best!!) We've been to the island before so we've pretty much been to most over the years. Loved the walking trail--felt very safe even at dusk or very early morning. Highly recommend this property if you want a comfortable relaxing vacation. Thank you Brenda and Robert for your hospitality.

I initially booked this condo to stay to only stay for 9 days. Brenda was awesome, her reservation procedure could not have been simplier. I arrived to find the condo exactly they way it is presented on the website (the pictures do not do this condo justice, it is beautiful). Once I arrived, I was enjoying myself so much that I contacted Brenda and asked her if the condo was available for longer, and as luck would have it, I was able to extend my stay to almost a month! The pool is literally right outside your patio door. I was there for the "blue moon" and realized that I was able to take amazing pictures right from the patio. The beach was just steps away from the condo (the pool was even closer). I was able to take a short walk up the beach to the Ritz Carlton (you can use their spa services with an appointment), and realized that I was spending a month at this condo for what I would spend in less than a week at the Ritz and enjoyed the same beach as those paying much more! I was traveling alone but enjoyed the company of others at the pool and the beach, and I met some people who I fast became friends with, including a couple of the owners within the condo complex. It was the quiet retreat that I was in search of. The king size bed was one of the most comfortable beds that I have ever slept on. Parking was plentiful, I was often able to park right in front of the building. The ground floor unit made is just a quick hop to the pool or beach. The kitchen was more than adequate and I arrived back home with all of my laundry clean because of the washer and dryer within the unit. I look forward to returning soon! Thanks again Brenda, your place is simply awesome!

My husband and I found this condo on the web and had a great experience here. Unfortunately the pool was not in working order so we weren't able to utilize it. Being able to relax in the pool in the evening would have been nice. There was a very short walk to the beach down the pathway. We felt like we had the beach to ourselves. The inside of the condo was in mint condition when we got there. It was more than we anticipated. There was ample supplies in the kitchen so we were able to cook our own food and linens were available for our use. It was great and we would go back there again.

Owner response: Thank you so much for your comments! I was so sorry the pool closest to our unit was closed for remodeling during your stay. The remodeling took longer than anticipated and we are looking forward to its reopening in another week. We hope you will be back again soon. Thank you again. Brenda

My husband and I found this condo via Trip advisor and felt like it would be a good fit for us. We were so pleased with the condo itself. It is located on the southern end of the island which in our opinion is the more peaceful end. Our entire experience was lovely - Brenda made everything so easy for us and even provided an extremely helpful guide to the island including activities and restaurant reviews. We felt like we were staying in a relative's condo. The condo itself is just wonderful - on the ground floor so every morning we could just walk out of the patio doors and onto the beach. I cooked almost every meal in the well-equipped kitchen and even read a suspenseful Patricia Cornwell novel that was on the condo's bookshelf. I can't recommend renting with Brenda and her husband more. We had a great experience. · By AmyEllis42 from Atlanta, Georgia on 9/7/2011 for a stay in 8/1/2011

Brenda and Robert gave this place their full attention. We couldn't have been happier here. Close to everything yet removed enough to be peaceful. we wish they had been in charge of the weather also. some chilly days, but we'll be back.

We had a great time in Amelia Is!! Your condo was perfect! Very clean and the location was great!! We lived in the water (pool and ocean), did fishing, ate out some, saw the fort and witnessed some newly hatched sea turtles heading for the ocean. The boys loved the big waves!! Our flight to and from was so easy! We truly relaxed.

Me, my husband, our son, and my great nephew were down the week of June 13 thru June 20, 2009. It was very hot but it was wonderful. The condo was beautiful and the King Size bed slept like a dream. I have a bad back so this is a huge plus. The room has great access to the pool and beach. The boys slept on the queen sleep sofa and was fine. The whole experience was so nice. We saw dolphins many times in the water and I myself caught several whitings in the surf and one small shark. The water was the clearest I have ever seen it on the Atlantic Coast while we were there. We also visited Fort Clinch State Park and found many great shells and fished from the pier, where we say either man o wars or sting rays, not sure which. We also saw large ships which the kids loved while at Fort Clinch State Park. Our vacation was much needed and very enjoyed at this location and in this beautiful and very clean room. Brenda and her husband were a pleasure to work with. It seemed like things used to be when people trusted one another. Thank you for a wonderful vacation and all the suggestions. We will be back I am sure. Holly

Great Condo. Great Location. A Family of 3 Middle Georgia. Date Submitted: March 23, 2009 Date of Stay: March 2009 First, let me just say that Brenda makes you feel like you're part of the family. Having our 19 month old with us and a lush yard off of the patio was wonderful! The beach was only a few footsteps away, and you have a great view of the pool. Also, I'm convinced that the king size bed in the condo is the most comfortable bed I've slept in! Very spacious. The condo was stocked well with everything you need. This place beat my expectations by a mile!

My husband, 2 year old daughter and I stayed in Amelia Island at this condo for a week June 2008. We loved the location of the unit and the Surf & Racquet Club in general. The condo was clean and well stocked. The bed was very comfortable. There are 2 pools and 2 kids pools on the property. Brenda was extremely helpful and always available. The list of restaurants she gave us were a tremendous help. Our favorite restaurants were Barbara Jeans, Lulu's Bra and Grill, Cafe Karibo, Moon River Pizza and Arte's Pizza(although we had a horrible waitress here but the pizza was excellent). I would highly recommend this condo and Amelia Island/Fernandina Beach.

WE HAVE BEEN TO AMELIA ISLAND FOR MANY YEARS NOW AND THIS HAS BEEN BY FAR THE BEST CONDO THAT WE HAVE STAYED IN. THE OWNERS ALSO GAVE US A WONDERFUL LIST OF RESTAURANTS,SHOPPING AND ACTIVITIES TO DO. SEVERAL RESTAURANTS THAT I WOULD RECOMMEND ARE: LULU'S BRA AND GRILL, COSY,WONDERFUL FOOD. JOE'S 2ND ST. BISTRO AND BEECH ST. GRILL, BOTH HAVE WONDERFUL FOOD AND THE EMPLOYEES ARE VERY ATTENTIVE. ALSO THE RESTAURANT IN AMELIA ISLAND PLANTATION THAT SITS ON THE POND IS QUITE GOOD FOR LUNCH AND YOU CAN GET GROCERIES ALSO FOR THE CONDO.THERE ARE SOME WONDERFUL SHOPS IN THERE AND FERNANDINA BEACH IS GREAT.

We have stayed in this condo for our past 2 summer vacations, and we love it! We often long to visit for a Fall or Winter vacation too. The Surf and Racquet Club is quiet, well maintained, and perfect for families. This unit is spacious, well decorated, and immaculately clean! The ground floor is perfect for our children to play on the lawn just outside the patio. I can actulally cook supper in the kitchen, watch my kids play outside, and see the ocean in the distance. Both pools are nice and the boardwalk provides easy access to the beach. Robert and Brenda are very friendly and easy to work with. It is obvious they enjoy Amelia Island, and they take pride in their units. The list of restaurants Brenda provides is great! Our favorites she recommended are Barbara Jeans and Sandy Bottoms. We haven't tried any of the neat little restaurants she recommended in Fernindina Beach yet, but we hope to do that next time we visit. We knew the minute we arrived at the Surf and Racquet Club and entered this unit that we had found our family vacation spot for many years to come.

Absolutely a wonderful trip for our first trip to Amelia Island. The condo is spacious and so near the beach! The unit is kept spic and span, tastfully decorated, and has all the amenities we needed. Brenda is extremely helpful, and by supplying us the restaurant list, we were able to get around to some good food without getting lost. We are looking forward to returning back to the island next year.

Brenda & Robert,Thank you for the wonderful, relaxing week our family had in Amelia Island. The condo was fabulous. We loved the décor and the bed and pillows were so comfortable. We also appreciated the special touches like soft music playing when we arrived, magazines, books and videos. We took the restaurant list that you gave us everywhere we went and found it to be very helpful. We enjoyed a couple of dinners with entertainment at The Surf (note: the crab special is on Friday nights only and you may want to update the prices you noted for the crab and lobster specials – they’ve gone up a bit, although I can’t remember the exact amount). The crab cakes at Barbara Jean’s were excellent, as was everything else we tried. My husband, a pizza aficionado, gave Moon River Pizza rave reviews (you’re right; “The Pizza” is very good). We wrapped up our trip with dinner at Sandy Bottoms; the view was great but the service was terrible and the food was not so great, although we didn’t order burgers like you recommended.We were somehow unable to find a shark’s tooth during our many hours on the beach, but we were blessed with a few other rare treats: finding a large shell in the ocean with a hermit crab living inside; experiencing a very impressive hail storm; seeing nesting sea turtles in the sand dunes; watching sting rays feed in the shallow surf right around our feet; watching wild dolphins playfully jump and flip in the air; etc. It was a vacation we’ll never forget.Thank you for your hospitality and the wonderful accommodations.

Dear Brenda and Robert, We had such a great time at your Condo! We will return! We loved the sights and the area. We never had a bad meal (thanks to your advice and list of Restaurants)! The weather was great and the sunrise every morning was the best! We took long walks on the trails along the road and walked the beach every day. We found many nice shops all over the Island. Shrimp Fest was fun! See you next year!(maybe sooner) Sincerely, Dev & Gail Edwards

We found this condo to be very nice and airy! And we loved the view and access to the beach. Everything is quite convenient (parking, pool, beach, etc.). We also appreciated the cleanliness of the condo and the updated look of everything. Lots of little touches that show an owner's care. We will definitely stay in this condo again!
