Amelia City condo description

This is the nicest unit in the area! Newly updated and luxuriously appointed throughout. Check out the high end kitchen and comfortable but refined decor in every room of this spacious oceanfront condominium.

Discover paradise on Amelia Island, it is the perfect spot for families or couples and one of the most popular beaches on the East Coast. For the seventh-consecutive year, Amelia Island is one of the top 10 U.S. island destinations and the number one Florida island destination in the Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards. Located in an exclusive community on the unspoiled barrier island, this condo strikes the perfect balance between upscale luxury and carefree relaxation.

This is not an investor property rented by a management company, this is our 2nd home. We think you’ll agree the difference is noticeable in the quality of furnishings and the care we take maintaining the unit and making it comfortable and inviting. This condo is a Prestige Property Winner.

Newly decorated with updated furnishings, fixtures and art, the tile floors and earth tones invoke the surrounding sand and dunes. Blues and greens from the ocean accent the pleasing color palette. This unit has all the luxuries and comforts of home. Floor-to-ceiling glass doors welcome you to your huge private 4th floor oceanfront balcony. Enjoy your morning coffee outside watching dolphins and a passing shrimp boat. Afternoon shade and sea breezes make the oceanfront balcony an inviting spot all day long. This floor plan has the only private balcony in Ocean Place.

There are two bedrooms and two full bathrooms in this spacious and comfortable condo. The master bedroom has a king size bed with a feather mattress topper and quality linens. The bedroom faces the ocean and opens to the private balcony. The second bedroom has a queen and a twin bed. Both bathrooms are clean and bright and the master bathroom has a double vanity with two sinks, a shower and garden tub for a relaxing soak.

The large kitchen is fully appointed with top of the line appliances, not cheap 'rental unit' equipment. There is a tile back splash and under-cabinet lighting that brightly illuminates the Corian solid surface counter tops. Everything is here for you to make a picnic lunch for the beach (including a picnic basket) or for a gourmet cook to prepare a fine meal. The kitchen opens across a breakfast bar to the dining room which boasts a large table and seating for six. Enjoy conversation or watch TV on the new 51' flat screen HDTV in the spacious living room. The seating is comfortable and the view of the waves unsurpassed.

The Ritz-Carlton property surrounds this condo. The hotel building is next door, just 100 footsteps away. The Ritz-Carlton has used this unit many times for their guests when they needed additional accommodations. As a guest at our condo you have access to the luxuries and services of the AAA Five Diamond Ritz-Carlton Amelia Island. Enjoy the world class spa or a meal at one of the four restaurants ranging from the five diamond Salt to more casual and kid-friendly settings. The four bar lounges are available before or after dinner as well.

The Ritz-Carlton Amelia Island is unique in North America as the only hotel and restaurant combination to gain the AAA 5 Diamond rating in 2013 for both the hotel and its fine dining restaurant, Salt. We encourage our guests to walk over and visit this incredible neighbor.

Our condo also includes the AT&T 'triple play' package with free high speed wifi, TV programming including HBO with a HD DVR and free local and nationwide long distance telephone.

Other amenities at Ocean Place include:

2 oceanfront pools.
Excellent nearby golf options.
Access to the adjacent tennis courts of the Ritz-Carlton.
Gated entry to the condominium driveway with 24 hour security patrols.
Two elevators make access to this 4th floor condo quick and easy.

              Owner info

              About the owner: We are a family of four with 2 daughters and we love spending time together at the beach. We live in Atlanta and love our trips to 'The Island.' We hope you will enjoy the condo as much as we do!

              Why the Owner Chose Amelia City:
              We have been visiting and vacationing on Amelia Island for years. When we decided to buy a vacation home we knew this was the best spot in Florida and along the east coast. We love the restaurants and shops plus all the outdoor activities in the area. We also enjoy a quieter day reading a book while sitting on the beach.

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              We've worked hard to make our condo comfortable for our guests and ourselves. This is an upscale condominium development and we think we have created a feeling of relaxed luxury in our unit. The building is located next door to the Ritz Carlton and this provides easy access to their amenities. This just enhances the already great experience you'll have at our condo. We love to walk over in the evening for dinner. Years ago we were married at the Ritz Carlton, Amelia Island and its fun to take our daughters to the spot where we had the ceremony.
