Maggie and Norm purchased this Condo in 2017
Why Maggie and Norm chose Amelia Island
Amelia Island is well loved by travellers. Listed in the book, “1,000 Places To See Before You Die,” describing how past and present coexist with some of the choicest and most pristine beaches along the Florida coast. Also vote tops with these readers. MOST BLISSFUL DESTINATION FOR WELLNESS TRAVEL (#4) - TripAdvisor, 2018 TOP 10 ISLANDS IN THE US (#2) - 2018 Reader's Choice Awards Conde Nast Traveler TOP 10 ISLANDS IN THE US (#6) - Travel + Leisure's 2018 World's Best Awards TOP 10 MOST ROMANTIC PLACES IN FLORIDA - (#6) Coastal Living, 2018 There is nothing like the Plantation for the best vacation ever! There are many walking paths and 2 golf courses in this Audubon International Certified Sanctuary. There are also bike trails in the Plantation that connect Amelia Island with Talbot Island. One of the best things after the view and the comfortable interior design is the short walk to the shops and restaurants. Also, not having to wait for the elevator by using the stairs that are close by the suite, allowing for that extra dessert.)) Making the Plantation our vacation home was an easy decision based on all the wonderful things to do in the area. When we saw this villa we knew we could turn it into something special and we think we have. We hope you thinks so too.
What makes this Condo unique
The suite is located in a lush, coastal hammock forest and sand dunes. The developers left much of the tree canopy intact, to give a wonderful feeling of privacy and serenity. Located in the exclusive, secure Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resorts, in a natural setting with large live oak trees and Spanish Moss, on the beautiful Atlantic Ocean, close to the Intracoastal Waterway. A gated resort filled with amenities, recreation and relaxation! Just steps south of your Sandcastles Villas is a shaded boardwalk leading to the Sunken Forest, which provides various high vantage points for viewing wildlife and photography of the beaches and beyond. Also located within The Plantation are salt marshes and parks which are great for kayaking, fishing, picnicking, playgrounds, basketball courts and grills. Not to be missed are the beautiful marsh view sunsets and walking paths in Walkers Landing and Drummond Point. Amelia Island is 13 miles long and between one and 2.5 miles wide on the northeastern corner of Florida. Fernandina Beach, is a delightful Victorian seaport village with art galleries, shopping and a great history museum, only about a 15 minute drive away from this beach villa. There are Florida State Parks on both the north and south ends of the island. The north one is Fort Clinch, which is a great historical spot with a fabulous natural environment, walking paths and a great place to visit. The southern side is a beach and fishing paradise. There are many great restaurants and shops on Amelia Island and inside the Plantation for you to enjoy. Jacksonville International Airport and Cruise Ship Terminals are about 20-30 minutes away, with taxi service.

Downtown in Fernandina Beach is the oldest seaport in the U.S. which has a rich heritage and has been under eight different flags. We love to stroll around downtown, especially at night among the lighted trees visiting the quaint shops and wonderful restaurants. Especially enjoyable are the horse and buggy tours of historic Fernandina. Additionally, there are jet skis, parasails, inland/offshore fishing charters and sailing charters available for hire. A short ferry ride can take you to beautiful Cumberland Island, a national seashore.
Amelia Island has been award winning vacation spot! Some call it the "Best Kept Secret", it is truly a beautiful place. Treat yourselves now to a wonderful vacation.
