About the Property
Townhome, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths (Sleeps 6)
We would love to welcome you to our hideaway. We bought Casa Amelia II in November 2011 and have been lovingly transforming it into our own little haven. Be among the first to stay there. Casa Ameila is a two story townhouse, the largest floor plan in the complex, 1500+ square feet with decks. But it is also PERFECT for folks who prefer no stairs. We are in the back, hidden from view, and from traffic, and noise, and commotion, and trash pickup and bikeriders, etc. . The boardwalk to our door from the parking is flat: only two small, separated steps and you are in the house. The large master bedroom with cathedral ceiling and completely redone, divided bath and walk in closet are on the ground floor, as are the almost 300 sq foot deck, dining area and sparkling kitchen. No need to climb the carpeted stairs, where the kids, etc. will enjoy two other cathedral ceilinged, carpeted bedrooms, a full bath and a walk in closet. Our huge deck shares, with only our one neighbor, the unique advantage of steps down to our own grassy back yard, isolated from the rest of the complex. Treed view, quiet, no traffic, perfect for kids to frolick and play, undisturbed. Ideal to relax in the sun, in private. The perfect antidote to the hustle and bustle of beach life. A quiet, alluring oasis.
Our Casa Amelia has a brand new kitchen, with lots of high end cabinets and granite counter tops. Since Casa Amelia will serve as our home away, the kitchen is fully and fancily equipped. The new bamboo floors are soft under the feet, yet, like hard tile, easy to care for. The new bathroom sports a nonslip tile floor and a fabulous new vanity complex, also with a granite counter. Fresh paint, new recessed lighting and upscale furniture complete the picture. We are confident you will love our home.
Casa Amelia II is ready for the beach, with beach cart and all that's needed to fill it up. A rolling cooler adds to the convenience. We have beach chairs, beach umbrellas, lots of beach towels, toys, even older tennis rackets to try out the courts. Be sure to bring the leash for your dog to walk along the beach and cruise the treed lined complex. Be sure you always pick up after him, as well.
Fernandina Beach is a splendid little town of early Spanish origin (second oldest after St Augustine) and massive Victorian revival. The first Florida railroad (Fernandina Beach to Cedar Key on the Florida west coast) and the natural deep water harbor made Fernandia Beach a Victorian boom town. The oldest still active Florida inn and Florida saloon still grace the resort-like town. Wonderful Victorian houses add elegance and charm. As the father of modern shrimp fishing, Fernandina Beach still sports shrimp trawelers and the best fresh shrimp in the world. Enjoy Fort Clinch, our civil war fort and nature complex, with its history re-enactors, its hidden beaches and miles and miles of bike and hiking paths. Go kayaking on our many streams and inlets. Visit the nature sanctuaries. And the bustling city of Jacsonville is only 45 minutes away; only 30 minutes to our user-friendly international airport. . For golfers, the opportunities are endless. Visit our Rizt Carlton for a night of lounge dancing or sipping by the bonfire. Our restaurants, some within wakling distance, are exceptional. Many people make Amelia Island their permanent vacation destination and ultimate retirement dream. Maybe you will too.
Our Fernandina Beach vacation rental permit number is 3520, which authorizes short term rentals of one week or more.

Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: My husband and I are retired Foreign Service Officers, who lived and worked in US Embassies/Consulates in South Africe, Germany, Panama, Belgium and Guatemala, as well as 10 years in Washington DC. We have a cruising catamaran sailboat docked at our home in Yulee Florida, just about 5 miles from our Casa Amelia. We chose the Amelia Island area for our retirment for its tranquililty, beauty, wonderful water recreation, and small, vibrant town with involved people who keep it jumping. It is a magnificant place to visit, vacation, and, of course, to live. Our townhome reflects some of our travels and souvenirs, with African and Guatemalan art, etc. It is more 'us' than a decorator-designed interior.
Why the Owner Chose Amelia Island, Fernandina Beach, FL, USA:
We have lived in the area for 10 years, in the large, river front home we built. It is now too large, and on the market. Our plan in buying this wonderful townhouse is to make it our permanent, part time home once our house sells. We also have a small house in Antigua Guatemala (the original Casa Amelia), vrbo property VRBO# 248999 if interested in a truly exotic vacation experience. We will spend more time there as well. And travel is our avocation.
The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
This townhouse is a great combination of beach cottage and quiet private preserve. The easy, flat access, downstairs master suite, and hidden away, virtually private yard and all treed views were the reasons that we jumped on the opportunity to own this home. It is a quiet, restful, tucked away place in a delightfully treed complex with outstanding amenities. The complex had a multi-million dollar refurbishing on the outside about two years ago, and shines, wonderfully maintained and gardened. Everything is ship shape and attractive. You will be surprised at how pristine it is; we were.
