Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Ocean Place is located on beautiful Amelia Island which boasts some of the most beautiful beaches and golf courses in Florida. Ocean Place at Summer Beach is one of the most beautiful properties on the island and is located in the exclusive gated community of Summer Beach Resort right next door to the world-renowned Ritz Carlton Amelia Island Hotel and Spa. At the Ritz, you may enjoy fine dining, spa treatments, tennis, golf and shopping.

This beautiful two bedroom, two bath, 5th floor condominium is located directly on the beach and provides spectacular views and incredible sunrises. This condominium recently had a total renovation. Our condo truly does feel like a second home rather than 'rental condo', because we want our guest to feel like they are at home. Sleep with the doors open and listen to the crashing waves and see the moon from your bed. Then arise in the morning to the most beautiful sunrise over the Atlantic Ocean. You can sit out on the deck, and while having your morning coffee, watch the dolphins and sea gulls having their morning breakfast behind the shrimp boats.

Downtown in Fernandina, you will find the oldest seaport in the U.S. which has a rich heritage and has been under eight different flags. My family loves to stroll around downtown, especially at night among the lighted trees and visit the quaint shops and wonderful restaurants. Especially fun, is a horse and buggy ride tour of historic Fernandina. Additionally, there are jet skis, para-sails, and inland/offshore fishing charters available for hire. A short ferry ride can take you to beautiful Cumberland Island, the only national sea shore on the East Coast. We love knowing that out guests are here making memories to last a lifetime.

About Jan Barry

My husband's family has been vacationing on Amelia Island for about 40 years. After we got married and had children we began bringing our own family here on vacation. My children never wanted to go anywhere else. For several years we spent the entire month of July here. Our family's most treasured memories are of this Island. We decided that we wanted to own our own little piece of Heaven on Amelia Island, so we began looking around and finally settled on Ocean Place. We now have three grown boys, ages 25, 23, and 20 and they still love going to Amelia Island to vacation, even after all of these years. There really is something for all ages to enjoy. We hope that you will love our home away from home as much as we do and we look forward to sharing it with you.

Jan Barry purchased this condo in 1998

Why Jan Barry chose Florida North East

We absolutely loved the location next to the Ritz because we have three boys, who all love to golf and the golf course is located right next door. We love the bike/walking paths located throughout Summer Beach where our children like to ride their bikes and skateboards. There is always someone available for the children to play with, however, the beaches are not crowded at all.

What makes this condo unique

Our unit is located on the fifth floor in the middle of the building which offers complete unobstructed views of the ocean in all directions for as far as the eye can see. There are two pools at Ocean Place to enjoy so you don't feel as though you have to fight for a spot at the pool. The condominium community is gated which gives us peace of mind about our security. We have free WI-FI service so you can connect to the outside world IF YOU CHOOSE TO, three 46' HDTV televisions with cable and DVR service, with 300 channels included, and free long distance phone service to anywhere in the USA and Canada.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Once again, our month-long stay at the Barry's Ocean Place beach home was an exceptionally pleasant experience. This was the second time we've spent a winter vacation here, and everything was just perfect, as we expected it would be. Jan has provided everything her guests could possibly need in making this a comfortable and cozy place. It feels like a home away from home. The view from the balcony is spectacular, and the weather allowed for many relaxing hours enjoying watching the surf roll in -- as well as quite a few surfers riding the waves. We are definitely planning another return visit, hopefully next December-January.

Wonderful beachfront vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed one week at this beautiful and comfortable condo by the beach. The view from the condo and the terrace is magnificent. Inside, the peaceful decor and amenities that the family has provided for their guests make the condo feel like a home away from home. The beach is amazing, stretching north and south from the condo for miles.

The condo is very conveniently located. A great grocery store is just a couple of minutes away by car. The town of Fernandina Beach is very accesible by car, and is a beautiful and friendly locale for shopping and eating. The people we encountered everywhere in Amelia Island were warm and welcoming.

Before and during our stay, the owner was exceptionally responsive to our inquiries. We highly recommend this condo as a perfect spot for a lovely vacation by the sea.

Our heart-felt thanks to the Barry family for opening their condo to us and making our stay there memorable!

It's a very nice property. The condo is well appointed, clean and very comfortable. You couldn't ask for much more of any beachside condo.

Fantastic Home Away From Home!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time renting this unit and we were overly impressed with every aspect of our stay from start to finish. The owners were terrific from the start in describing what they were offering but they were being modest. The unit has a prime location with spectacular views of the ocean from the living room and the master bedroom. All of the decorating in each of the rooms was done very tastefully and you felt is if you were in a luxury hotel. There were several little touches that only added to this feeling such as the bottle of wine we had waiting for us upon arrival, the jar of mints in the kitchen or the custom soaps and shampoos in both of the beautiful bathrooms. The master bath in particular was so inviting with the spa-like, riverstone shower floor and the spacious double vanity. I was particularly impressed with kitchen which had everything a cook could ask for. We loved making coffee and breakfast in the morning and eating with our kids on the balcony as the sun rose. What a great way to start each day. Both of the bedrooms were very comfortable with terrific high end bedding and plenty of closet space. If your looking to get away and live like you are at home this is the place for you. We could not have asked for a better unit to spend our vacation in.

Overall Impression of Our Stay

  • 4 of 5

The experience was great. We loved Amelia Island. It was quiet and relaxing. Not the usual spring break crowds, traffic, waiting in line for dinner etc... The condo was lovely however our overall impression of the building itself was that it was in need of updates, repairs, general maintenance. For the money paid that was a little disappointing.
