Iowa couple finds paradise! We are an Iowa couple (semi-retired educators at Marshalltown Community College) who fell in love with Amelia Island and Fernandina Beach; we know you will too!
You will also love our condominium villa at Amelia Landings Resort. It is nestled in a very secluded, oak-lined, serene setting. Yet, you are a five- to ten-minute walk to a public access on beautiful Amelia Island beach!
A short, private drive leads you to our building, and there is ample parking. Our villa is on the second floor of a three-story building. (Unfortunately, there is not an elevator in the building, so our condo is not handicapped accessible.)
You spoke-we listened! We have maintained the same competitive rates for nearly 10 years!! We we have also continued to provide discounts for senior (55+) and military (active, former, retired, reserve, guard, and even dependent) guests. No proof is needed for either category. Just tell us--if we can't believe our seniors and our military men and women, who can we trust!!
We are are now taking reservations for the entire year:
-- The POPULAR spring and summer (March-July): Upper Rate Season
-- The BEAUTIFUL fall (August-October): Medium Rate Season
-- The PEACEFUL winter (November-February): Lower Rate Season
We love any time of the year on Amelia Island, and so will you, but spring, early summer, and the fall periods are our favorites!
Updates every year! Over the last five years we have:
-- replaced kitchen and laundry appliances (refrigerator, dishwasher, disposal, washer/dryer)
-- put new mattresses in both the Master Bedroom (Queen Beautyrest) and the Guest Bedroom (Twin KingKoil)
-- remodeled the kitchen (February 2013) (new cabinets, counter tops, sink, faucet, range hood and microwave)
-- added Paula Deen cookware to the kitchen
--removed carpeting and installed wood flooring (11mm laminate) with extra sound dampening insulation
-- purchased new living room, bedroom, and balcony furniture
-- installed flat-screen television in the LR
-- slowly built a collection of books, DVD, and CD's. (May wish to bring your family favorites--our collection is still small!)
Our condo in Fernandina Beach on Amelia Island can be your central point for travels to Savannah, Atlanta, Charleston, St. Mary's and Cumberland Islands (see wild horses here!), the attractions in Orlando, NASA and the Cape, Cocoa Beach (you must go to Ron Jon's!), Daytona Beach, Jacksonville, historic St. Augustine, and much, much more.

About the owner: Welcome to our vacation home! We live in Marshalltown, Iowa, and we are both retired from Iowa Valley Community College District. Linda was a Library Supervisor, and Bob was a Professor of Psychology. We both continue to teach psychology classes part time, and Bob is a part-time marriage counselor at a local counseling center. Linda has two adult sons, one in Mason City, IA, and one in St. Paul, MN. Bob has three adult daughters, two in Orlando, FL, and one on Daniel Island, SC. We have four wonderful grandsons and a super-duper step-granddaughter (we call her our gift grand daughter!). When we are not traveling to see kids, we spend a lot of time (and our children's inheritance) on house renovation, both in Marshalltown and on our condo.
Why the Owner Chose Amelia Landings:
Since we have daughters and grandkids living in the Orlando and Charleston areas, we wanted a place roughly half way between the two locations. Fernandina Beach on Amelia Island is just perfect for us! We are now wintering in the condo and renting it out the remainder of the year.
