Recent Amelia Island reviews
All the comforts of home, best location on the island
"This was my family's first trip to Amelia Island, and I feel so lucky to have found this vacation home/retreat! It's a shockingly beautiful condo (maybe a bit *too* nice for our family with 2 young kids, as I worried we would mess it up). We had all the comforts of home and then some. We decided it was the best place to be on the island - close to everything we found we wanted to do. It's across from main beach, with ample parking, playground, activities, picnic tables, and a couple of restaurants - it was a friendly public beach, but never really crowded. A 5 minute walk but we chose to drive. It's 10 minutes from downtown Fernandina, with great restaurants, fun shops, and boat tours. It's right next door to Fort Clinch, which is a wonderful state park with a pier that goes out a half mile into the ocean, and a gorgeous beach that was completely deserted when we were there. And next door, as well, to the recreation center, where we found two wonderful playgrounds (we particularly liked the Pirate Playground) and Egan's Creek Greenway - an fantastically scenic walking/biking trail. We also made the 30 minute drive to the Jacksonville Zoo, which was wonderful, too! It was a magical week, and we'll definitely be back."

"This beach duplex has absolutely everything you need for fun, relaxing vacation. Perfect location, with ease of access to the beachfront. I was just recovering from hip replacement and had no trouble getting out on the beach. This is a no-hassle owner as a bonus! Plenty of shade or sun, and very comfortable."

"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!"

"We had an awesome time at this home. Directly across the road from the beach. The pool is well kept as is the house. Lauren was very friendly and informative the entire trip. Thanks so much! We'll be back!"
