Overview

About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

You will fall in love with our condominium at Forest Ridge Village. It is beautifully located in a lovely, oak-lined, serene setting, and yet you are less than a five minute walk from the beautiful Amelia Island beach! Just off I-95, Fernandina Beach is only 25 minutes from downtown Jacksonville and the Jacksonville Airport. This is the northernmost beach city in Florida--a real hidden treasure!

Our condo is on the ground floor, conveniently located near the pool and tennis courts. As you walk into the condo, you will immediately appreciate the complete renovation including wood floors, beautiful kitchen cabinets, granite counter tops, tile baths, and comfortable living space. We just put in a new washer and dryer as well as a brand new AC unit!!

Our property is perfectly located on this 13-mile long, two-and-one-half mile wide island. It is a very short walk to the beach. We are only minutes from historic downtown Fernandina Beach, Centre Street, Fort Clinch State Park, the Ritz-Carlton Hotel, the Amelia Island Plantation, and other great local attractions. Spend the day on Cumberland Island, which is only a pleasant ferry ride from the municipal docks in downtown. If it's the sunset you're interested in... take a short evening drive to dockside in Fernandina Beach, where the sunset overlooking the Amelia River is spectacular! You will not want to leave!

Relaxing, convenient, clean

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. The condo was very clean and well equipped. An easy drive or walk to beach access. Close to downtown where there's great shopping and dining. Grocery and fast food right around the corner. Overall an enjoyable, relaxing vacation. Our trip was a last getaway before the arrival of our first child and to attend the Ga/Fl game. I definitely recommend staying. The owner was prompt in answering questions.

Wonderful stay in Amelia Island.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in Melissa' vacation home. It was a homey feel and the beds were super comfy, walking distance to the beach. There were only 2 things that we felt could enhance it. The guest bath in the hall did not flush properly it kept running and the plumbing in the kitchen sink leaked when the water was turned on from the handle.

Once those 2 things are fixed it will be even better.

Thanks!

This location and the owners made the vacation so much better than just a place to stay, it was a home. All you really need is to show up. They have everything you need already there. If you do not have a good time it will be your own fault. I highly recommend this location. You Will love it.

Well-appointed condo with easy access to beach, pool and tennis courts

  • 4 of 5

This condo worked well for our son and his family. It has all the amenities, including wifi and the owner is easy to access.

More detailed information about how to open the lock box and where the electrical panel is located would have been appreciated.
