Recent Amelia Island reviews

  • Awesome Place

    "Condo is just as pictured and we couldn't have been happier with everything. The owner was fantastic to deal with and the picking up of keys and the access to all of amenities that the Plantation has to offer was so convenient. We will be back for sure!"

  • Excellent Stay!

    "This was out third time to Amelia Island in the last 12 months, we absolutely love this island. This was our first stay at 202 Sailmaker with our small pet Riley. This condo was perfect! We thoroughly enjoyed the beach, the excellent location, easy in and out for our pet, very comfortable and clean, the kitchen had most every cooking utensil we would ever want. We cooked a couple nights and very much enjoyed the grill. The neighbor above was very nice, a lovely lady and friend, we even went to dinner with them. We now have a Amelia Island rental we will use over and over. *The boardwalk to the beach could be considered difficult if you are elderly or have other health issues. It was no problem for us being reasonably fit at 60."

  • Great Beach front resort

    "Great views and beach front resort.my only caution would be aware of 4 levels of stairs and the condo would be difficult for wheel chair access. The unit was nicely furnished and equipped with every thing a person would need for a beach rental. The Rental agent Ryan at Destination Amelia was easy to deal with and the entire transaction can be completed on line. Amelia Island is a lovely place to visit."

  • Wonderful Vacation

    "We stayed in this villa during the week of the 4th of July, and we loved it. We enjoyed the fireworks and the view was magnificent. It is even more spacious and beautiful than the pictures show. The villa is updated, very clean, and has a great balcony space. The owners were great to work with from the initial contact throughout our stay and were quick to respond to questions we had. We have been coming to Amelia for 10 years, and we have never rented a villa where each bedroom had its own bathroom. Because we had small children, having the bedrooms on a different floor from the living quarters was ideal. The Mickey-Mouse shaped pool was a huge plus for our toddler grandchildren and is only steps from the villa. The pool area has plenty of chairs, umbrellas, and features a covered area with tables. We enjoyed the grill area beside the pool. The beach is very clean and only a short walk from the pool. We definitely recommend this villa for family vacations and can't wait to return next year. We can't say enough about this villa and owners-you will definitely get your money's worth by staying here."

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.
