About the property

2 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 4-6

Beautiful, spacious 3rd floor oceanfront condo with virtual floor to ceiling east-facing windows in living/dining room and both bedrooms to provide breathtaking oceanfront views. Come, get-away and relax as you enjoy the ocean in your front yard!

We are located just South of Main Beach in Fernandina Beach. Because of this our beach is life-guard protected all summer long. We are only 1.5 miles from historic downtown with shopping and restaurants as well as a quick walk to the entrance of Fort Clinch.

We have 2 bedrooms, one with a queen bed and the second with 2 twins that can be converted to a king. There is a queen sized sleeper sofa in the living room so that we can accommodate a total of 6. There is a long ocean-front balcony which is a perfect place to watch the sunrise, see dolphins swim by or just sit and enjoy the ocean sounds.

About Kathy Gerstner

We are both originally from the midwest but are currently living in Arizona. We find the desert to be beautiful, but we miss the ocean and look forward to being back near the coast when we retire!

Kathy Gerstner purchased this condo in 2010

Why Kathy Gerstner chose Amelia Island

We chose to buy this condo because we love the ocean, especially in Florida .We fell in love with Amelia Island thee first time we visited.

What makes this condo unique

We were amazed by this condo when we walked through the front door and immediately saw the palm trees and the ocean. I am still struck by it every time I open the front door! We also love that the unit itself is so spacious and open and has great views from all of the rooms.

Nice stay! Very quiet!

  • 4 of 5

The visit was very pleasant. The property and condo was extremely clean and comfortable. The location was perfect and there was a restaurant in very close proximity. The kitchen was stocked with plenty of dishes and additional easy to find kitchen ware made cooking very easy. The main shower was only warm and could have been hotter, but it was very clean and nice. The only uncomfortable incident was making a trip to the car and coming back to the main entrance, hands full of groceries in freezing cold weather and the person exiting the building (I’m assuming a tenant/owner), came out of the door and made sure to shut it quickly as I stood there, before I could enter. Of course I had the code to renter the building and maybe this person was simply being precatious. Whatever the case, it was extremely uncomfortable. I would recommend this condo to a middle age couple. The intent wasn’t to party, but the condo and people I ran into In passing seemed to be an atmosphere for very relaxed, quiet guests. Kathy was easy to access and promptly answered my questions and was very pleasant to deal with. Thank you for extending your space!

Just what was needed!

  • 5 of 5

Really loved staying at this property with awesome beach views, a great breeze through the condo, balcony to sit out on, a fabulous moonrise and sunrise. Very comfortable condo and steps to the beach.

Only downside, but not a big deal is that you overlook the restaurant on the left (so look to the right to take full advantage of an unobstructed beach view). But if they have live music you are front row to enjoy!!

This property is also a short bike ride away from Fort Clinch (and they even provide the bikes!!)

All in all, this place was exactly what we needed and at the right time. The owners are very responsive and accommodating. We cant wait to go back (and will!)

Beautiful Beach Condo steps from the ocean!

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky enough to be able to stay at Terraces at Beachside for a week in October. We had been to beautiful Fernandina Beach once before but we did not stay right on the beach. Kathy's condo was perfect! It was cozy and felt like a home away from home. It was very spacious, immaculate and had everything you needed to make your stay very comfortable. Not having to purchase shampoo and conditioner, paper towels, was so helpful as well as having access to beach chairs and other beach gear was a plus. The view was simply beautiful and being able to hear the sound of the waves was so calming and relaxing. It was nice to have The Sandbar restaurant so close by too. Kathy was very easy to work with and got back to me with any questions that I had right away. What a perfect place to celebrate our 42nd Anniversary! We hope to be able to go back again next year. Thank you !

Best ocean views in town! Favorite place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful condo in Terraces at Beachside... 3rd floor unit with GORGEOUS ocean views and a balcony. High enough to see over the dunes. Just steps from the beach and Sand Bar oceanfront dining next door. Favorite feature is being able to use the umbrella/beach chairs set up by the inn next door. Historic downtown Fernandina shops & restaurants just a short drive away. Stayed here for the 2nd time on girls trip in October and it was paradise. Condo is comfy, clean, updated, and well equipped. Kathy is a great host and very responsive. Hoping to return next year!
