"We spent a week at the beach looking for warmer weather. The weather didn't always cooperate but helped us enjoy the condo even more! We have stayed in several condos and cabins and this one is at the top of our favorites list. We've never stayed in one that had a more equipped kitchen. Anything needed for cooking was there except the food! The staff was awesome and so friendly. It was so clean and comfortable. The ocean view from the deck and master bedroom was great. Nancy was wonderful and made me feel like a friend when booking the condo. Thank you so much for sharing your beach home!"

"What a great condo in a great location. The condo and amenities were better than advertised. Debbie was timely and informative from the booking right thru to providing parking passes a few days prior to arrival. The on site manager was friendly and the grounds, pool and entire area was clean and well kept. Private access to the beach directly from the complex was sooo convenient! Cannot imagine a better experience for a better price! Tremendous place, great service (Debbie), equals great time. Memories of first beach/ocean experience for our grandchildren are priceless! Florida's best kept secret!"

"This is our second stay in this condo, and we loved it just as much this year as last! The owners are wonderful and ensure that check-in and check-out are hassle-free. There is covered parking and the condo has everything you could need for your stay (linens, cookware, coffeemaker, washer/dryer, etc.). The furniture is attractive and comfortable and the condo is very clean. The upgrades to the kitchen since our last stay were a bonus! There is a nice view of the ocean from the porch, which is a perfect spot to enjoy your morning coffee. The grounds at Sand Dollar Villas are well maintained, the pool is always clean, and the easy access to the uncrowded beach is ideal. Our kids especially enjoyed being able to hang out at the pool after long day on the beach. We also like making the short drive into downtown Fernandina Beach in the evening, which has small town charm and a variety of excellent local restaurants. We will definitely be back next year!"

"After researching options for first trip to Fernandina Beach, this condo fit the affordability criteria. It proved to be a good value and set-up for a family of four. Upon arrival, we were able to efficiently access the condo and liked the layout. Stairwell was close and elevator and shopping carts for loading/unloading. Parking was ample (Complex about ½ full). Easy beach access on the private boardwalk.
Master bedroom has separate access to the balcony. Can view the sunrise from there at this time of the year. Furniture on the balcony was fine for lounging and you can see the beach. Other bedroom was situated near front entry, across from the bathroom. It offered a nice separation from the rest of the living quarters, awesome for kids. We like the design of the unit and flooring and didn’t feel crammed in.
Sand Dollar Villas as a whole was clean, comfortable, well maintained and under surveillance. Same for the pool area. No monkey business or riff-raff/Fun okay. On-site management was available for any issues and seemed attentive to the needs of the residents/visitors. The owner was easy to deal with and responsive to any questions.
Designated area for grilling we used was a concrete slab. Would have been nice to have a picnic bench or something to sit on, but pulled a chair out of the car. Also, we had brought 4 non-junky bicycles and although the bike rack was generally filled, other covered options existed. Town is relatively bike friendly with designated lanes north and southbound, nice greenway, and single track worth checking out at Fort Clinch SP. Nice place for our Spring Break.
Unit had some plumbing issues early in our stay that were quickly remedied. The mish-mash of utensils and cookware worked fine for us. The small clothes washer/dryer was handy. Though no detergent for it or the dishwasher, things got clean. DVD player might have a short in it, eventually got it to work. Family-friendly movies and games available.
Any place you rent will have nuances that might take some getting used to, but we quickly adjusted. I recommend this unit and would stay there again if we return, but not with the teenagers sharing a queen bed. Hard to give five stars as there are always opportunities for improvement/upgrades to the abode.
Very pleased with our stay overall. Consider the Sand Dollar Villas for your visit. Thanks!"
