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 Place!

  • 4 of 5

This was our 2nd time to Amelia Island and our first time staying at the Surf & Racquet Club. The owners of our unit were very helpful with all of our questions in advance! The one bedroom was the perfect size for my husband and I. We enjoyed the easy access to the beach & pool. Very comfortable condo. We ate every meal on the balcony and the view is awesome except for one thing ... Cars are parked on the beach right next to the complex. It kind of destroys the beauty of the island / beach when you see cars there. I wish Amelia had a law against that!

Good couple or small family condo

  • 4 of 5

The condo was clean and as advertised. The king bed was comfortable and the sofa sleeper was great for our toddler. There were plenty of towels (beach and bath). It was nice they provided boogie boards but it would be great if they also provided sand toys. There was only one true beach chair. The other 4 were the collapsible chairs not true beach chairs. The blinds in the living room where our daughter slept had several missing making it even brighter when the sun came up.

Enjoyed our visit to Amelia Island. Watched dolphins from the beach and balcony each day. Property was well maintained and condo had well equipped kitchen. We enjoyed swimming and walking the Greenway. Nice trip.
