About Lou Wagner & Sandy Mortensen

Lou and I love to travel, play tennis, golf, snow ski,hike, bike, play cards and board games. We love to visit our Amelia Surf and Racquet Club condo. Walk on the beach. Read. Golf. Looking out our window we don't see another building, just the ocean and the beach. We feel like we are on our own private island. It's our little home away from home.

Lou Wagner & Sandy Mortensen purchased this condo in 2007

Why Lou Wagner & Sandy Mortensen chose Florida North East

Amelia is an undiscovered Island on the Northeast coast of Florida. Very little traffic. Wonderful restaurants. Great beach. Quiet and peaceful. Only 30 min from the Jacksonville airport, so it is easy to get to. It's a nice change of pace.

What makes this condo unique

We love having a great grocery store less than 5 min away. The town of Fernandina Beach has wonderful restaurants for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Our favorite is the Surf, about 5 min down the ocean road.

Quaint island getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We normally go to the west coast of Florida, but this time Amelia Island was calling! What a wonderful surprise! The views from the balcony of this condo are breathtaking and the beaches are wonderful! The condo itself is located in a private gated community with beautiful landscaping and 2 pools. The condo is exactly like the pictures describe it. It is very well decorated and maintained. It was so nice to visit such a quaint island, no t-shirt shops, no tattoo shops.....the historic area was beautiful. We will return!

Great Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Clean and cheerful unit, exactly as described. Outstanding ocean views above the dunes from living room and bedroom overlooking balcony. Very nice upgraded and well-equipped kitchen. Spacious bedroom, comfortable linens. Nice quiet location. I felt extra safe with it being a gated community. Short walk down the boardwalk to the wide beach, & pool was nice, clean and conveniently located. Rounds are well capped and there are numerous walking paths nearby.

Owners were helpful and very easy to communicate with. Property management also very helpful.

Hope to return again!

Very happy with this condo

  • 5 of 5

We walked in the door and knew we would love this condo. The first thing you see is the ocean through the big windows in the living area. Bedroom and balcony have the same great view--dunes, sea grass, ocean--no clutter. The condo was clean, well-furnished and maintained, the kitchen relatively well-equipped, the bed very comfortable, and everything we needed in terms of beach gear and bedding (thanks for the light blankets in the closet!) was provided. It was very peaceful and quiet, at least at this time of year. Both the owner and the on-site agent were extremely responsive and helpful. We did not take advantage of the amenities of the complex, including pool (unheated), tennis courts, etc., but they all appeared attractive and well-maintained. This part of the island is quieter--the town of Fernandina Beach with its very pretty historic district, restaurants, etc., is an easy 10-15 minute drive away--so people who want to be right in the middle of things might wish to be further north, but for those who mostly want to have a relaxing vacation and enjoy the beach, this location was perfect. We would happily rent this unit again.
