About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5)

Amelia Island is a great place to vacation! It reminds you of the old fashioned beach towns that dotted the Atlantic Coast before hotels and high rise communities replaced them. There is a real downtown with great shops, restaurants, live theater and museum. The white sand beaches have picnic areas and life guards (summer). Fort Clinch is on one of several state parks on the island. Civil War re-enactments are held there the first weekend of the month. There is something for everyone.

You can hear the ocean from the grounds of Amelia Landing Resort. You’re just a block and a half away. Nestled in a grove of 100 year old oak trees is your first floor two bedroom/2 bath private villa. Newly redecorated and with new stainless kitchen appliances, you’ll have everything you need. Just bring your clothes and purchase your groceries from one of the four convenient grocery stores on the island.

Your villa is tastefully furnished and equipped with high speed Internet, digital flat screen TV’s and DVD and phones with unlimited long distance. Though there are lots of great restaurants on the island, you can spend an evening in and cook; your kitchen is fully equipped for any meal prep. Delivery from several restaurants is an option. For your home entertainment, there are cards, board games, puzzles and videos. Before retiring for the evening, take a long soothing bath in one of the two large soaking tubs. Relax on your screened porch and enjoy your morning coffee or afternoon drinks. Within the grounds you can sun by the largest outdoor pool on the island, play tennis (racquets are supplied) or picnic. Grills are located in each picnic area. Walk to the beach or drive and don’t worry about beach items, we supply chairs, towels, umbrella, beach bag, cooler and boogie boards. Additional information and pictures check out our WEB site

About The Owner

Jessie and Tim are retired and live part of the year in Lake Lure, NC and the rest of the year in Fernandina. Tim was an IT Manager for 3M and Jessie was a Technology Consultant for a large textbook publisher. They discovered Fernandina while living in Minnesota and found, not only, a wonderful place to escape the brutal Midwestern winters, but a charming beach town with every amenity.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2010

Why The Owner chose Florida North East

We started coming to Fernandina Beach in 2002. Some friends from Georgia took us there to explore potential retirement properties. We purchased our first condo on that visit. So many friends and family members have enjoyed our “little piece of paradise” since then. Once we were both retired, we realized that we could purchase another condo and open it up to anyone wanting an affordable winter escape or summer beach trip.

What makes this condo unique

There is just so much to do in Fernandina Beach. When we only vacationed there, we always went home wishing we had had more time to take advantage of the island’s amenities. There was always at least one favorite restaurant we couldn’t get to, a play we had to miss and another day sunning on the beach or at the pool we didn’t have. All seasons offer so many activities that we always had a to-do list when we returned. We especially loved the variety of festivals which are a major attraction. Jazz in the Fall and Shrimp in the Spring attract thousands.

Perfect beach retreat

  • 5 of 5

This condo had everything we needed to enjoy our time at the ocean. We appreciated having all the 'beach stuff' right at hand; and the short walk to the ocean. Loved that the beach is accessible all along Amelia Island. The condo was close to grocery stores, Walgreens, etc. we were only a short drive from the fun historic downtown. All in all a very fine trip.

Nice Stay

  • 4 of 5

Nice property: they really did have lots of items available in the condo: for instance trash bags, toilet paper, & hand soap! Tim & Jessie were quick to respond to a request we had! The beds are on wheels and that was something to get used to, but they were comfy! Pool was awesome, but the pool bath and the grounds could've been better kept. These beaches are very nice! Overall nice experience! Fun stay!

Owner's Response: Thanks Luann! I am glad you had a nice stay. We try to make our guests as comfy as possible and provide almost everything they'll need for a great beach vacation. We're sorry about the pool bathroom and grounds. Our association pays someone to keep those up. I'll let them know that it needs attention. Hope you'll return for a future vacation.

Perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were celebrating our belated Honeymoon. We had the most amazing time and the condo was perfect. Short walk to the beach and restaurants, and coming home to a relaxing, comfortable place made it so much better. The screened in porch was huge and great for our late night scrabble game (which was provided). This was my second time staying in Jesse's condo and recommend it to anyone that wants to enjoy the beach and stay somewhere that feels like home. The kitchen is fully stocked with all necessities and the rooms are beautifully furnished. Also only minutes from the historic downtown, where the shopping is plentiful. We can not wait to go back!!! Thank you again,

The Prunty's

Awesome Condo! Highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

This is an awesome condo and we highly recommend it. The location is perfect - an easy walk to the beautiful beach and pool. The condo is equipped with everything you could ever need and lots of extras too. It is attractively decorated and immaculate. The beds are the most comfortable we have ever found in rentals - which for us is a huge plus! Thank you to the wonderful owners for making it so special and being so friendly. We will be back!

Absolutely lovely stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time in Fernandina Beach and are already thinking about going back. We would love to stay in this condo again! It is a beautiful complex and the condo is spacious, beautifully furnished and included everything we needed to enjoy our stay! The condo would fit 4 people very comfortably; 6 people would be a bit of a squeeze but still doable. This place is perfect for a family. Our stay was a quiet, relaxing time. From the condo you can easily walk to the beach and a few restaurants. The historic downtown is a quick drive away. The condo includes a pool which was beautiful although it was very cold when we were there. It also had everything needed for the beach - chairs, boogie boards, towels, etc. I highly recommend this condo!

Owner's Response: Thank you Gary! I am so glad you had a nice stay in my condo. I want everyone to have the best experience while visiting our beautiful island. I hope you'll return, perhaps when it is a bit warmer. I love October, but the pool water can be a bit chilly! Generally, the ocean water is still comfortable. Thanks again for renting with me and for the kind words about my place.
