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.

Very comfortable and nicely decorated. Gorgeous views from living room and bedroom. Great shower!

  • 4 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay, even though we had two days of not great weather. Condo was cozy and very comfortable. Fantastic views to watch storms moving in and heavy surf. We just went to a movie when weather was too bad for beach or pool. Lou and Sandy obviously put a lot of love and care into creating a lovely space to hang out. We loved it

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!

Owner's Response: First time in 9 years we have had this mentioned. A few cars sometimes park in the dune area that are about a football field distance away to the side of our building. Amelia does have the law prohibiting vehicles from driving on the beach below the dunes.
