About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Sleeps 8

NEWLY renovated (May 2017), owner-operated, 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom condo is located within a 5 minute walk to a quiet beach area (1 and 1/2 blocks) where locals and nearby homeowners throw down their towels, chairs, and enjoy the lapping sound of the ocean. You will fall in love with our condominium at Forest Ridge Village.

Our property is perfectly located on this 13-mile long, two-and-one-half mile wide island. It is a very short walk to the beach. We are only minutes from historic downtown Fernandina Beach, Centre Street, Fort Clinch State Park, the Ritz-Carlton Hotel, the Amelia Island Plantation, and other great local attractions. Spend the day on Cumberland Island, which is only a pleasant ferry ride from the municipal docks in downtown. If it's the sunset you're interested in... take a short evening drive to dockside in Fernandina Beach, where the sunset overlooking the Amelia River is spectacular! You will not want to leave!

It is beautifully located in a lovely, oak-lined, serene setting, and yet you are less than a five minute walk from the beautiful Amelia Island beach! Just off I-95, Fernandina Beach is only 25 minutes from downtown Jacksonville and the Jacksonville Airport. This is the northernmost beach city in Florida--a real hidden treasure!

Condo has brand new dishwasher, refrigerator, stove, microwave, AC, Washer, Dryer, ALL NEW furniture. Be one of the first to rent this BRAND new renovated condo. The high ceilings throughout the condo make it so light and bright. The kitchen is compact but well stocked with everything required for your stay and the dining area is just steps away, making it quick and easy to get that yummy meal on the table.

New flat screen SMART TV in living room with WIFI, 300 channels including HBO and more, Netflix and Amazon capable.

Condo has playground, tennis courts, pool and grills on premises with ONLY a few small steps to pool. ALL of this are only a few steps away. Our condo is perfectly located for easy access to these as well as to the front so walking to the beach is quick and convenient.

Use the provided beach cart to easily load the chairs, beach towels, toys and boogie boards included with the rental.

If you are a tennis player, your vacation condo is also just a few steps away for a quick game or two (tennis rackets and balls included). The complex is surrounded by large oak trees with hanging moss providing a tranquil southern setting to enjoy the children’s playground located with the development along with outside grilling areas.

Bedrooms have queen beds (a total of three). And a queen sofa bed. All linen and towels included. Beach towels too.

Why Melanie Sutton chose Amelia Island

This property is in a great location. One 1 1/2 blocks from beach makes it a short walk and you are enjoying the reason we live in Fernandina Beach. We are local and are available if needed.

Clean, beautifully decorated condo in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This condo is in a quiet community. The unit is beautifully decorated and has everything you need for your stay. The main street of Fernandina Beach is a super short drive for shopping and eating. You can walk to the beach and Sliders Restaurant for a casual lunch or dinner from the condo. We toured Fort Clinch which was very interesting and stopped by Pippi Longstockings house which was nostalgic. This condo is a great place for a family or a friends week away!

Great stay!!

  • 5 of 5

Melanie’s condo is super cute, clean, convenient, and comfy! Just a quick walk and your at the beach or a quick drive to downtown Fernandina Beach. The condo is very nicely decorated and the beds will provide a great nights sleep. Completely updated! For the Starbucks lovers, there is one within a 5 minute drive! Neopolitan 1000 Degrees is a fabulous pizza place that is really close too. Can’t go wrong with this gem!

Great stay in Fernandina Beach

  • 5 of 5

Very clean and well equipped apartment.

We needed an additional item due to being here on a business trip (not the normal beach holiday needs) Melanie was on hand straight away to help.

Great service.

Thank you.
