About Brenda Platt

Jim and Brenda Platt - We are retired from long careers in telecommunications and have traveled extensively in the US and abroad. We've been many beautiful places but none are as beautiful as Amelia Island. The island still has the small town feel and people are friendly. Nature thrives on Amelia!

Brenda Platt purchased this house in 1989

Why Brenda Platt chose Amelia Island

Amelia Island is a unspoiled barrier island with pristine beaches, thrilling wildlife and the most charming Victorian village in the South.

What makes this house unique

Quiet evenings with silver moonlit seas. Wonderful sunrises. Beach that is never crowded. Flocks of pelicans, waterbirds and dolphins. Our property is located in a residential area away from the commercial feel of condos and hotels.

right on the water!!!!

  • 4 of 5

What a great little find on the beach! Brenda has thought of everything! So convenient to grocery, shopping, historic area, etc.

All the amenities you would find at home have been included in this unit! No need to bring anything but your clothes and swimsuit. There was even a pet gate for our little dog! So relaxing.

Awesome UGA-FL Weekend

  • 5 of 5

A big thank you to the Platts! This place was absolutely awesome! Classic, beautifully decorated beach house with plenty of space, a quiet atmosphere that made for a great nights sleep, plus a very scenic view of the Atlantic. The grandkids loved the beach access, beachcombing for shells, and the "play area" out back! Everything about this place was amazing. I just can't say thank you enough.

The condo is located to where you can get anywhere in Fernandina in a matter of minutes. Also, there are so many places to eat, play, and visit. Once there, I recommend visiting the historic district and downtown, as well as Fort Clinch State Park. There's an amazing 3-mile scenic drive to the fort itself.

PS. Georgia WON, which also made the weekend that much more amazing :-)

A unique and charming place

  • 5 of 5

Of course the beach on Amelia is spectacular, that's a given. You can walk right out of this apartment onto the deck over the dunes to the ocean, and watch interesting wildlife below. The apartment is completely stocked with everything you might need (we've rented condos that have supplied not so much as a garbage bag). The decor is very comfortable and magical due to the artistic imagination of the owner. We loved it!

Amazing property! Breath taking views! A true cute, clean, and cozy home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful 3 day weekend at this very lovely home on the beach. We've stayed at a few other properties through Home Away, but this ranks as our new fave! From the moment we walked in we knew a lot of love and care had been put into this property. We had a truly remarkable weekend and would love to return. Thank you to the owners for sharing this little slice of heaven with us! Love, The Fullers <3
