Kick back and listen to the breakers hit the beach through the open windows at night, or watch your favorite tv show on the new 42' flat panel tv from the oh so comfy sofas.
Our community is wonderfully maintained, clean and quiet with a lovely pool, a fantastic playground, tennis courts, and a great wooden walkway and sidewalks all around.
The Family Advantage: We make it easy for you to travel with your children and only bring clothes. We provide beach towels, beach chairs (2), beach toys, travel size sunscreens, child sized life jackets (2), and a fantastic beach cart to carry it all in so your hands are free to hold little hands as you walk to the beach. We have a single stroller, a high chair, a booster seat, children's bowls, plates, cutlery, sippy cups, bibs, and a bottle warmer.

About Audrey McCarthy
Believe it or not our first trip to Amelia Island was in January 2011. As soon as we arrived we knew we had discovered somewhere very special that we wanted to be a part of. Six weeks later we had bought our Amelia Island retreat and several trips and a full renovation later we have truly made the place our own. We are a family of 6, four children, and this is our favorite place to spend family time. Our kids love picking up shells and shark's teeth and day-tripping to the awesome Jacksonville Zoo (30 mins)they have a train... very exciting. Our baby daughter loves the beach and getting ice cream on her daily stroll. We love walking around downtown, getting coffee and treats, watching the shrimpers coming in, seeing the goldfish at the pirate beach shop, playing minigolf down the street. There is a great Irish pub (O' Kane's)downtown which is great for our family as my husband grew up in Ireland and loves this little bit of home. We have made the condo a easy place to vacation by filling it with everything we need for the kids so we can travel light. We just show up with our clothes and go to the beach. Amelia Island is an enchanting place and we are so glad to be a part of it.

Why Audrey McCarthy chose Amelia Island
We fell in love with this condo for its location, privacy, and the condo itself. From our balcony, we can hear the waves break on the beach at night and from inside all you can see outside is grass and trees lending a fantastic sense of peace and privacy. Also, the fact that we are not right on the beach means we don't get any of the traffic or cars. The complex is very well maintained, the people are very friendly, the amenities are exactly what we want and we hardly need a car for our stay. We can fly into JAX and be sitting on our balcony in Fernandina 30-40 minutes later. way to the beach, so if we forget something we can easily go back and forth from the condo to the beach. The view from our balcony is all trees, which offers great privacy. From our condo we can walk to various great food locations and easily drive to grocery and shopping. The condo is beautiful, we recently renovated it adding all new appliances, adding a closet to the main bathroom, and new flooring and new paint. We love being on the upper floor because of the view and the fantastic skylights in the family room that really make the condo shine. We fell in love with the clean beaches, the beautiful Historic Downtown, and the great antique and consignment shopping in Fernandina Beach. The condo village offers the year around pool, the playground, the tennis courts, and lots of really friendly permanent residents that will share the best places to eat, drink, shop, and play. We couldn't believe how close everything was to Fernanadina, 25 minutes to the airport and the zoo, just over an hour to gorgeous St. Augustine, and a short drive north into Georgia for Historic St. Mary's. Really the best location in every way possible.
What makes this Condo unique
The absolute convenience of everything close by and the kid-friendly items we provide for those traveling with children. Forget the car, and just walk to wherever you need to go. We also love the on-site playground that is a few steps from our condo. So great to take the kids over at a moment's notice without worrying about car-seats and driving. We couldn't be happier at this location. It is quiet and clean and so close to the beach.

Comfy home with everything we needed!
We loved staying in Audrey and Colin’s home! We have an almost 2 year old and were so happy they had a high chair and pack and play waiting for us. There were also baby books and sand toys, and all the beach equipment we needed. It was just a block from the beach and the condo was situated in a pretty complex with a playground, pool, and an area to picnic. We found the couch/living room area really comfortable and the kitchen was fully stocked- we had most meals at home. We’d definitely want to come back!
Convenient location with comforts of home
We stayed just a few nights here on our way to Central Florida. The home was conveniently located to the beach, to Egan's Creek waterway, to Slider's restaurant and just a short drive to Ft Clinch State Park, Peter's Point and the historic downtown shopping area.
We brought our bicycles & explored the island from end-to-end. The bike trails took us past beautiful golf courses and along the ocean. Biking thru Ft Clinch was lovely and we enjoyed looking for seashells along the beach there.
We appreciated that the kitchen was stocked with cooking pans & some basic items, so we could eat-in after a long day of exploring. We didn't travel with children, but the home looks ideal for bringing kids as it's stocked with beach gear, games & a cool bunk bed.
Amelia Island is certainly a destination we'll want to return to & we'll surely keep this place in mind when booking in the future. The owners were great to work with and promptly answered any questions we had.
It was the perfect everything
This condo was the perfect price,the perfect size and the perfect location!
Excellent place and location
Had a wonderful time in this finely furnished condo for the recent Georgia Florida game. Would love to return in the summer and enjoy this in the summer, as the beach is just a short walk away. Everything we needed was in the unit and only wish we had had more time to enjoy it. Five stars!
Great place with nice beach access!
This was our first visit to Amelia Island (October 11th, 2017) and our accommodations were great! This 2 bedroom unit was perfect for us. It really is only a 2 minute walk to the beach & a short drive to the historic area (10 mins or less). The owners have anything you need (even for the kids and babies) at the unit. The neighbor next door (Nella) was very nice & even gave us a list of restaurants. Nights were very quite & noise free. The beds were comfortable (a tad on the soft side). The house is tastefully decorated and clean. Pool, tennis courts, playground, turtle ponds...great extras! Audrey and Colin were a pleasure to deal with. I would definitely recommend this unit (especially for a family with children). You really get your money's worth!
Great place....close to the beach.
Everything as advertised. Enjoyed our stay.
