We think you’ll agree that the differences are noticeable in the quality of furnishings and the care we take maintaining the villa. Our goal is to made it the most comfortable and relaxing seaside holiday stay for you and your guest. 

Young children may not be a good idea for this suite, due to the balcony. Also, there is no capacity for an extra bed in the suite, making this suite ideal for one or two people only.

You may also enjoy strolling around downtown at night among the enchanting lighted trees. Especially delightful are the Horse and Buggy Tours of historic Fernandina. Additionally, there are jet skis, parasails, boat tours, inland/offshore fishing charters and sailing charters available for hire. A short ferry ride can take you to Cumberland Island, one of the most beautiful national seashores.

About Maggie and Norm

We love hosting guests by offering them a wonderful romantic vacation experience. Our goal is to make a beautiful, clean vacation home for you at the beach, to return to often.

Maggie and Norm purchased this condo in 2017

Why Maggie and Norm chose Amelia Island

There is nothing like the Plantation for the best vacation ever! 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!

One of the best things after the view and the cozy interior design is the short walk to the resort shops and restaurants. Also, not having to wait for the elevator by using the stairs that are close by.

What makes this condo unique

Sandcastles Villas are located in the exclusive secure Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort 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 the Sandcastles Villas is a shaded boardwalk through the plantations to the Sunken Forest which provides various high vantage points for viewing wildlife and photography of the beaches. Also located within The Plantation are salt marshes and parks which are great for kayaking, fishing, picnicking, playgrounds, basketball courts and grills for a wonderful holiday. Not to be missed are the beautiful marsh view sunsets over in Walkers Landing or Drummond Point.

There are many public golf courses and resort golf courses, all within a couple of miles. There are bike trails in the Plantation and nearby that connects Amelia Island with Talbot Island, the islands to the south of us.

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 and a fabulous natural environment and a great place to visit. The southern side is a beach and fishing paradise. There truly are also so many great restaurants and shops on Amelia Island and inside the Plantation for your enjoyment.

Jacksonville International Airport is about 30 minutes away, with taxi service between. The Fernandina Beach Airport is only a few mile from the Plantation, if you happen to have your own plane.

A wonderful place to relax with a beautiful ocean view!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing place! The owners are so pleasant to work with and think of every detail to make it a special visit. They have put a lot of "love" in their place. I would highly recommend staying in their suite. The beach and parking lot is very accessible by using the elevator or steps. The view of the ocean and pool is beautiful! Perfect place for our anniversary trip!
