Recent Amelia Island reviews

  • family vacation

    "We loved it! Upon arrival there was short walk up the stairs into a beautifully decorated 3 bedroom condo. A mural overlooking the dinning area was handmaid and adorn with seashells added to the feel of the nearby ocean. Since I love to cook, yes even on vacation, was practically equipped with ample area to chop, peel and saute. Master suite has decent shower stays warm, tight bathroom space but attached open sink area to get ready for the day with large mirror and closet space with hangers. Kingsize bed was pretty awesome. enjoyed the quiteness of the area, not a party place. felt very safe with friendly neighbors. short walk to ocean, where we enjoyed most of our time. Its about 3-4 miles to historic district where theres night life, great seafood and shopping. Wished we could have stayed longer and plan on returning for another stay in the future. thanks Stacey, we'll be back for more warm weather!!"

  • Beautiful and Spacious Condo!

    "This is the second time we have stayed in this condo at Surf & Racquet Club, and we were just as pleased with this stay as we were with our first one. The condo is beautifully furnished and has absolutely everything that is needed for comfort and convenience. It was so relaxing to sit in the comfortable swivel rockers in front of the large window and enjoy the unobstructed view of the ocean as we drank our coffee each morning. We can't say enough kind things about Kevin, the owner. He was great to work with, and we appreciated everything he did to help make the rental process easy and our stay an enjoyable one. We are already planning a return visit to Amelia Island in early December of this year, and we will definitely stay in this lovely unit!"

  • UFPTI patient

    "My wife and I recently completed a 2-month stay at Jerri and Donnie’s condo at the Surf and Racquet club on Amelia Island. We were there from mid-November, 2014 to mid-January, 2015. We were there for my medical treatment in Jacksonville and even though it was a 40 minute drive each way, it was worth it to stay there rather than downtown Jacksonville. The island is charming, beautiful, and full of excellent restaurants and shops to explore. For those who like biking, walking, and jogging, the island is paradise. Before booking with Jerri and Donnie, we looked at several places on the island. We were looking for a place that we believed would be comfortable and like a home away from home for 2 months. We visited some nice properties, but as soon as we walked into their condo we knew immediately it was at the top of our list. The pictures on the internet accurately depicted the property, and it was exactly as described. I like to fish from the shore, so the 1st floor location was ideal for me. Despite what one reviewer said about the condo being “literally” on the beach, it is not of course, but as close as ocean front property can be, and close enough to see beautiful sunrises over the water; to hear the waves crashing onshore; and close enough for me to walk out on the patio, grab my fishing gear, and be on the beach with a line in the water in just a few minutes. We really had everything we needed here to make our stay comfortable: tastefully decorated and comfortable furnishings, well-equipped kitchen, hi-speed wi-fi, washer and dryer, and HD cable TV with premium channels. Jerri was very cooperative and considerate in every way. In summary, I have no reservation whatsoever about recommending this condo for a nice getaway or a family vacation. We hope to stay here again soon."

Amelia Island Travel Tips

If tranquility is what you look for in a vacation spot, Amelia Island is where you want to be. The island was named after King George II of England's daughter, Princess Amelia, and you might feel like royalty during your stay here. From the serene sparkling waters, postcard-worthy views, quaint streets and constant warm sunshine, it's impossible to have anything less than a good time.

Amelia Island is just 30 miles from Jacksonville but offers you peace and quiet instead of hustle and bustle. You can spend your days hitting the links, lounging on the 13 miles of beaches, strolling through town exploring historic architecture and dining out at fantastic local eateries.

Conde Nast Traveler's Reader's Choice Awards consistently ranks Amelia Island as one of the Top 10 North American Islands, so you can be sure this Florida locale is an excellent spot for your next getaway.

Things to Do on Amelia Island

Amelia Island Museum of History: In the old Nassau County jail you'll find the Amelia Island Museum of History, which details the island's unique past and how it has evolved. As you move through the space you'll see exhibits on the Timucua Tribe, the island's first residents and the Civil War. There's even a hands-on display called Discovery Ship where kids can learn to tie a knot and pilot their own ship. Docents from the museum offer guided tours of the museum as well as historic areas around town where you can find out more about Amelia Island's "golden area," ghost stories and holiday homes. For those who enjoy a libation every now and then, hop on one of the city's delightful pub tours.

Amelia Island Lighthouse: Continue the history lesson with a visit to the Amelia Island Lighthouse, which is open to the public on Saturdays. Book a tour to hear about the lighthouse from a professional or simply visit to take in the gorgeous structure. The lighthouse was built in 1838 and is the oldest existing lighthouse in Florida, marking the entrance leading to St. Marys River, the Cumberland Sound and the Fernandina Beach Harbor. Watch ships sail into port, and don't forget your camera - there are sure to be tons of photo-worthy moments here.

Hit the golf courses: Whether you want to practice your putt or play a full game, golfing is a big part of the culture on Amelia Island. In fact, there are seven different courses to choose from, all with stunning views, gorgeous greens and excellent opportunities to hit the links. The Amelia River Golf Club is one of the best conditioned courses on the island. The Omni Amelia Island Plantation was named a "silver medal golf resort" by Golf magazine, The 18-hole Golf Club of Amelia Island was designed by Mark McCumber and Gene Littler, two former PGA-tour golfers. Florida's First Coast of Gold is home to the World Golf Hall of Fame. Golf Club of North Hampton was created by golf pro Arnold Palmer, and the Fernandina Beach Golf Club is one of the favorite municipal courses.

The Spa at Omni Amelia Island Plantation: After a rousing game of golf at the Omni Amelia Island Plantation, treat yourself to one of the life's best luxuries and head to the spa. Since your getaway is all about relaxation, a massage, facial or a full day of pampering should definitely be on the itinerary. The products used here are eco-friendly, and there's a relaxation area and garden for you to enjoy between treatments as you sip herbal tea or fruit-infused water. You can also take a yoga class here to get in some extra stretching and meditating.

Dining on Amelia Island

Moon River Pizza: Pizza is a classic dish for many people, and if you're jonesing for a slice while on Amelia Island, head to Moon River, which some consider the best pizza in northeast Florida. The pies are hand-tossed and specially prepared for each patron. Choose from a pizza with a variety of toppings, calzones or a salad and wash it all down with a glass of wine or beer. Moon River offers a relaxed atmosphere where you can enjoy your travel companions' company and delicious comfort food.

Barbara Jeans: If you love down-home Southern cooking, be sure to stop in Barbara Jeans. This family-run eatery started in 1998 on St. Simmons Island in Georgia and got so popular it expanded, adding locations on Amelia Island and in Ponte Vedra. Barbara Jean herself is the mastermind behind the delicious recipes, so you'll feel like you've been transported back to Mom's kitchen as you bite into shrimp fritters, a chicken fried chicken sandwich, tuna steaks, meatloaf or catfish. And be sure to save room for the famous "Chocolate Stuff" or homemade bread pudding.
