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 Amelia Island

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.

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.

Room with a view!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! What a relaxing vacation we had. We are a family of three and we had such a good time. This was our first time to Amelia Island. We loved the view from the condo. To be able to see the ocean from anywhere was amazing. And we loved spending time on the balcony and listening to the waves. It was the most relaxing vacation we have had in years. The beach was never crowded and people were friendly. The pool was great and what a bonus that you could see if it is crowded or not before heading down. It was also fun to spot dolphin, see the sand turtles, lizards and a rabbit too. We hope to return! The owner was also super nice and a pleasure to work with. And we really enjoyed the shopping and variety of restaurants in the area.

Great place to relax!

  • 5 of 5

This was my first experience with HomeAway and it was a great one! I have been visiting Amelia Island for about 20 years now and I usually either stay with my brother or in a hotel. Well, I am officially saying goodbye to hotels. The property was exactly what I wanted and then some. The location is great! Only a short walk over the dunes to the beach. The south end of the island is very quiet. It's not very busy so you have you basically have your own private section of beach most of the time during the week. Weekends are a little busier however. This condo has everything you could ever need. Full kitchen with all the pots, pans and dishes you could possibly need. Washer/dryer etc. There were even a few beach chairs and towels so all you need is some sunscreen. The views from the balcony are amazing too. Great for sunrises! I set up my camera and filed some awesome time lapse sunrise videos. I would recommend this property to anyone who wants to stay right on the beach. It was perfect for 3 people. It is located on the south end of the island so there aren't many bars/restaurants nearby but you can get a cab to beautiful downtown for about 10-12 bucks each way. I definitely plan to stay here again!
