Property type condo

About the property

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

Imagine a place where, practically everywhere you roam, you see and hear the Atlantic surf. Welcome to our home!

This two-bedroom, two-bath condo is located on the penthouse (7th floor) of Ocean Place, one of Amelia's most prestigious developments. There are high ceilings and no footsteps overhead. We are located just steps from the Ritz Carlton in Summer Beach and host spectacular views of the Island's white, sandy beaches.

Your professionally decorated home away from home has beach colors and first class coastal furnishings. There are tile floors in the kitchen, baths, and halls. The remainder is warm bamboo hardwood accented with colorful area rugs. The bedrooms occupy opposite ends of the condo, providing privacy for those who desire it. Each bedroom has a flat-screen TV with DVD and its own full bath with shower and plush towels. The master features a king pillow-top bed appointed with soft, luxurious linens. Open the balcony doors and be lulled to sleep by the rythmic sound of ocean surf. The second bedroom offers twin beds with quality linens.

The full-service kitchen with Corian countertops is open to the living and dining areas. A stove, oven, microwave, dishwasher, refrigerator/freezer, coffee maker, coffee grinder, toaster, blender, and every other conceivable cooking and dining need are provided. Enjoy your meals on a dining table made of driftwood topped with glass.

When you are ready to relax, entertain yourselves by watching a movie on the large flat-screen TV in the living area. If you prefer, wind down with music or settle onto the sofa with one of the books from our library.

If you must stay in touch with the office (the first day at most!), we have desk space as well. If that is a little too formal, enjoy keeping in touch with family and friends through the free wi-fi and nationwide long distance telephone service.

You can sip coffee, or a cocktail, on your private balcony overlooking the pools and beach. There also is a spot where you can have a romantic dinner oceanside.

When you are ready to get some sun, it is only steps to the beach. Or, you can bask by one of the two fresh-water pools as the children are happily splashing in the shallow end.

When you are ready to explore the Island, you can take one of the many bike trails or a leisurely walk on the beautiful shaded, meandering path adjacent to Ocean Place. In just 10 minutes by car, you can browse through the many quaint shops and watering holes in downtown Fernandina Beach.

Our retreat is perfect for week-long getaways, winter escapes, or temporary lodging for executives. It contains EVERYTHING you will need (except clothes, of course) to live happily for any length of time. The condo will accommodate 4 people comfortably, but there is a sofa bed which will allow you to entertain a couple more.

We provide linens (including beach towels), a beach umbrella, beach chairs, and many other conveniences.

About Patricia

The owners reside in Prospect, Kentucky, a suburb of Louisville. John is a labor and employment attorney, and Patricia is a retired attorney. They have 3 grown children and a pampered dog. Suzanne Baker assists them in rental management and scheduling.

Patricia purchased this condo in 2011

Why Patricia chose Florida North East

The owners fell in love with Amelia Island in 2008. During a charity auction at their daughter's high school, they purchased a week-long stay on Amelia Island. During that visit, they discovered their retirement haven. The Island has a wonderful laid back atmosphere and a lot to do.

What makes this condo unique

Obviously, the ocean views from the penthouse floor are spectacular. At night, open the balcony doors to the bedroom and fall asleep to the sound of the surf.

Picture Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This condo was absolutely perfect for my family. I was attending a conference at the Ritz Carlton and didn't think a hotel room would be comfortable for my family of 4 (2 adults, 4 year old and 1 year old). I got lucky when I found this place! Right next door to the Ritz, there is even a sidewalk connecting the 2 properties. There was plenty of room for my little family--the kitchen had everything we needed. If I am ever back in Amelia Island, I will stay here again. Perfection!

Better in person!

  • 4 of 5

The photographs don’t do the condo justice, it’s much nicer in person. There have been some updates to furnishings since the photos were taken. We enjoyed lunches at Café Karibo and Tasty’s Burgers and picked up provisions for Twi-light Happy Hours on the balcony at Publix on our way back from town. Their cakes and ice creams are delicious. One night, we saw fireworks on the beach from the balcony. The condo had a supply of games and DVDs to enjoy when we had enough of the sun. We spend a day in St. Augustine and picked up a bushel of fresh, delicious citrus to snack on.

Amazing Views and Beautifully Outfitted Condo

  • 5 of 5

I rented this condo for myself and 4 friends for our 20th Annual Girl's Getaway. I could not have asked for a better rental. Not only was it beautifully decorated, but we had all of the items we needed for our stay. Beach chairs, beach towels, more than enough bath linens, kitchen supplies and instructions. Since the condo is on the 7th floor, the views were spectacular.
