This was our first trip to Amelia Island and we totally lucked out on finding this great home. Not only was the house itself awesome the location was perfection. The beach was large and mostly empty. Dan Ward was extremely easy to work with and we enjoyed every minute of our stay.
This house is amazing in beauty and comfort
I would recommend pelican Landing to anyone who wants to enjoy the beauty of the ocean views and the comfort of a beautiful house. It’s close to all types of restaurants as well as shopping
Beautiful Home and great location on the Beach!
The pictures do not do this home justice. It is very tastefully decorated! The layout of the home is great for families and you cannot beat the location on the beach. We had a great time. Thank you Dan for sharing your home! The Stewarts and Priestleys
Thanks for the compliments. You all came from such a long way to visit Pelican Landing. I’m happy to hear you enjoyed your visit and that it exceeded your expections. That is my goal.
I knew from the owner's photos on VRBO that the property was attractive and updated, but on arrival I was surprised by the attention to detail. It reinforced our choice of this home for our month-long January stay. There is good light from every angle, both from inside and out. Views of the dunes and the ocean are spectacular. The artwork is lovely and much enhanced by spot lighting. Appliances are new and function well. Dishes, cookware, and kitchen utensils exceeded my expectations, a rare thing in rental property. Owner was easily available to anwer the few questions we had. Great house on an interesting stretch of history-rich American Beach, which, like a lot of prime beachfront, will probably change soon.
Not your avarage beach house
If you love the beach; and peace and quiet; and high-end furnishings; and quality amenities; and beautiful interior design; you can find it all at this beautiful home on the beach. The view is fantastic, the location is perfect, the hot tub is over the top! This place is really too good for the rental market but it's available for rent! It feels like a real home where someone has paid attention to detail and made sure that everything is just right for the occupants. It also feels brand new. I fully intend to rent it every time I return to Amelia Island. Hopefully, it will be available!
Thank you for all the compliments. I am glad you enjoyed your holiday at Pelican Landing.
Beautiful vacation home!
Pelican Landing really is a paradise. The house is spectactuar and very well appointed. Dan has thought of everything and clearly cares for his home and the guests who stay there. The ocean and sunrise views from the two decks can’t be beat. The beach over the natural dune is amazing. We picked a wonderful quiet week in the fall. The summer beach goers were long gone, as were the Georgia-Florida fans. Only the sun and warm temperatures remained. We will definitely be back.
Thank you. I appreciate the positive feedback. It’s been the guest that have provided suggestions that have help me cover all aspects.
