Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Cozy and comfortable, this newly remodeled, second story condo is full of light. It is beautifully decorated with new furniture and lovely paintings on the walls. And the panoramic view of the beach and ocean is just what the doctor ordered!

The kitchen is finely appointed for even the most gourmet of cooks. It now boasts a beautiful granite wraparound counter with stylish new swivel chairs with hydrolic height adjustment. You can converse with the cook, spin around to talk to someone on the couch, then turn again to take in the breathtaking vision of the ocean. New lighting, fans, kitchen cupboards and paint really make this condo a show place. And the ocean is seen from every angle....

The deck has a table with four comfortable chairs for relaxing dining pleasure......or sit back and take a snooze by the sound of the waves in one of two oversized teak rockers.

And if it's the sandy beach you crave, help yourself to the beach chairs and water toys located in the box on the deck. Full of beautiful shells, the fine white sandy beach is wide and uncrowded. And right in front of the condo is what is known by the locals as the 'hot zone' for finding ancient sharks teeth of all shapes and sizes.

Our condo is located just south of Main Beach, with the historic town of Fernandina Beach just minutes away. Enjoy great shopping, plenty of casual and/or fine dining and Fernandina's very own Farmer's Market every Saturday morning.

There is so much to do - from exploring Fort Clinch to touring the beautiful historic Victorian homes by horse and buggy. There is golf, tennis, hiking and biking. And exploring beautiful Cumberland Sound on a chartered sailboat or fishing boat is an experience not soon forgotten. We are one of the last beaches in the country that still allow horseback riding right on the beach.

We host the fabulous Concourse DeElegance every year, as well as the Fernandina Beach Annual Shrimp Festival. Other annual events include the Amelia Island Book, Jazz, Blues and Chamber Music Festivals - no wonder we love living here!

This is our second home, even though it's just minutes from our primary residence. If you need anything, we're only a phone call away, so be sure to give us a ring.

Oh...and well behaved dogs...let's talk.

About leslie ritter

Steve and I got married on the beach in front of the condo, September of 2008. The double rainbow just before the ceremony was a good omen! We love this place and hope you do too! It has a wonderful aura that we noticed the first time we walked in.

Fabulous location. Private walkway to wonderful beach. Part of a 4plex with clear views from good

  • 5 of 5

size deck. Loved the ocean breezes and swaying of sea oats on the dunes Spent most of our time outside on beach or deck from sunrise through moonrise. Enjoyed couple trips into historic Fernandina Beach. Less then 10 minutes away. Everything inside was clean and worked out well for us. Ocean views from living room kitchen areas. Everything you’d want in a trip to the beach: see the ocean, hear the ocean, smell the ocean. Wonderful.

Ocean view

Loved the deck facing the beach. The ocean was very relaxing, with a nice breeze. The condo was clean and had amenities: beach chairs, rockers, beach access. Restaurants and stores nearby.

We had a great time.
