About Joe and Joan

After vacationing in Amelia Island for many years and owning a second home here, we finally made the full time move to Amelia from Atlanta in 2014 and couldn’t be happier! Since our full time residence here is not oceanfront, we decided to fulfill a dream and purchased our condo in Amelia Surf and Racquet in 2017 as an oceanfront retreat for ourselves as well as family and friends!

Joe and Joan purchased this Condo in 2017

Why Joe and Joan chose Amelia City

We spent years visiting beach towns all up and down the east coast and on both coasts of Florida, but immediately fell in love with Amelia the first time we came here over 20 years ago! And the feeling has never changed. From the unbelievable, uncrowded beaches to the charming historic town and the old growth oak canopies all over the island, we’ve never found a place that offers so much or feels more like home.

What makes this Condo unique

The View is simply spectacular. And the location of this south end resort accessed from an idyllic tree canopied street just steps away from the Ritz Carlton can’t be beat! Miles of beachfront at the back of the complex and miles of pristine paved trails to the front with pools and tennis on the property and golf, restaurants and shopping all less than a mile away offer something for everyone!

Kitchen was well stocked, king bed very comfortable, high end linens, beautiful view from all rooms, convenient to shopping and restaurants.

The owners are available for questions and very prompt w/ their responses. We will definitely return !!

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                So glad to hear that you enjoyed the condo and Amelia! We try to think of everything our guests might need and welcome special requests… We would love to have you stay again and hope you will come back soon!

                                                                Beautiful, immaculate condo with everything you need

                                                                Nancy P.

                                                                We just returned from a perfect stay at this beautifully decorated, updated, immaculate condo! We were given detailed instructions before we arrived of how to get into the gate, where the condo is located, where to get a luggage trolley if needed, etc... They also have a website they provided with suggestions for everything on Amelia Island. It was an anniversary trip and Joan left us a bottle of champagne, fresh flowers, chocolates and a very sweet note! I've stayed in VRBOs and Airbnbs several times and now pack amenities that are usually found in nice hotels, so I'm not going to the drugstore the first day of arrival. It was completely unnecessary this time. The condo was stocked with coffee and creamers for the first morning, a basket of snacks, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, makeup remover wipes, q-tips, cotton balls, hand soap at both sinks, laundry detergent, fabric sheets, 2 bottles of water in the fridge, extra paper towels and toilet paper and probably more that I am forgetting. We were in town for the annual car show, so we didn't get to spend as much time lounging on the balcony or using other amenities of the property, but beach chairs, beach towels and boogie boards are provided for the short walk across the boardwalk to the beach. The front door is an electric lock that uses a code, so you don't have to worry about having a key if your group splits up. At the end of your stay, you just use a different code on the lock as you leave so that the owners are notified and the cleaning crew can get the condo ready for the next group. There is also a booklet provided with all the info on the condo, maps, places to eat, things to do and the owner's phone numbers if you need them for anything. As everything was perfect for our stay, a phone call was never needed. Also, the king size bed was very comfortable (that's something I always read for in reviews because not sleeping well can ruin a trip).

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                Thank you so much for all of the kind words and comments! We are happy that we helped with your anniversary celebration and hope you had a great time at the car show! We truly do care about our guests and strive to treat them like we would want to be treated ourselves… And we are so happy to hear that you appreciated the special touches! We would love to have you come back and hope you will!

                                                                First rate in every way

                                                                This was our first experience with VRBO, and it was wonderful! The condo was beautifully decorated, had a fantastic view, and supplied just about everything you could need. The beach area was very nice, and we especially liked the extensive nearby trails. Best of all, the owners went above and beyond to make our stay the most enjoyable. We would highly recommend this vacation rental!

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                I am very happy to hear that you were pleased with the condo and you had a good first experience with VRBO! I hope you will come back to Amelia and stay with us again!
