This is not an investor property rented by a management company, this is our 2nd home. We think you’ll agree the difference is noticeable in the quality of furnishings and the care we take maintaining the unit and making it comfortable and inviting. This condo is a Prestige Property Winner.

Newly decorated with updated furnishings, fixtures and art, the tile floors and earth tones invoke the surrounding sand and dunes. Blues and greens from the ocean accent the pleasing color palette. This unit has all the luxuries and comforts of home. Floor-to-ceiling glass doors welcome you to your huge private 4th floor oceanfront balcony. Enjoy your morning coffee outside watching dolphins and a passing shrimp boat. Afternoon shade and sea breezes make the oceanfront balcony an inviting spot all day long. This floor plan has the only private balcony in Ocean Place.

There are two bedrooms and two full bathrooms in this spacious and comfortable condo. The master bedroom has a king size bed with a feather mattress topper and quality linens. The bedroom faces the ocean and opens to the private balcony. The second bedroom has a queen and a twin bed. Both bathrooms are recently remodeled. The bathrooms are clean, bright, and luxurious..

The large kitchen is fully appointed with top of the line appliances, not cheap 'rental unit' equipment. There is a tile back splash and under-cabinet lighting that brightly illuminates the Corian solid surface counter tops. Everything is here for you to make a picnic lunch for the beach (including a picnic basket), or for a gourmet cook to prepare a fine meal. The kitchen opens across a breakfast bar to the dining room which boasts a large table and seating for six. Enjoy conversation or watch TV on the new 60" HDTV in the spacious living room. The seating is comfortable and the view of the waves unsurpassed.

About Aimee Nitz

We are a family of four with 2 daughters and we love spending time together at the beach. We live in Atlanta and love our trips to 'The Island.' We hope you will enjoy the condo as much as we do!

Why Aimee Nitz chose Amelia City

We love being right next door to the Ritz-Carlton and walking over to enjoy the amenities. We have been visiting and vacationing on Amelia Island for years. When we decided to buy a vacation home we knew this was the best spot in Florida and along the east coast. We love the restaurants and shops plus all the outdoor activities in the area. We also enjoy a quieter day reading a book while sitting on the beach or our private balcony.

What makes this Condo unique

We've worked hard to make our condo comfortable for our guests and ourselves. This is an upscale condominium development and we think we have created a feeling of relaxed luxury in our unit. The building is located next door to The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island and this provides easy access to their amenities. This just enhances the already great experience you'll have at our condo. We love to walk over in the evening for dinner. Years ago we were married at The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island and its fun to take our daughters to the spot where we had the ceremony.

Loved that it was such an easy walk to the restaurants at the next door Ritz-Carlton. This was my first VRBO experience and Brad and Aimee made the whole process very easy -- great directions and very prompt responses to any and all of my questions. Great place for a very relaxing vacation.

                                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                                      We're so glad you felt your first VRBO experience was so easy. We enjoyed having you as our guests!

The balcony overlooking the dunes (fun to watch the turtles) and beach is the perfect spot to dine or relax with a book. Very comfortable beds and the recently renovated bathrooms are lovely. The owners are amazingly attentive and have given thought to your every need. We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend this unit to others.

                                                                      Owner's Response:

The building is in a great location with access to the bars, restaurants and shops in the Ritz Carlton right next door. When the sounds of the crashing waves from the unit call you to the beach, a 5 minute walk across the protected dunes has your toes in the sand. The owners went above and beyond to communicate before and after arrival. If you want hassle-free relaxation in an idyllic setting, this is your place!

We had lovely views of the ocean from the living room, bedroom, and balcony. And the condo itself was clean and so inviting and beautiful. While we never needed anything because the place is so well taken care of, they reached out to us several times just to see and make sure all was well. We LOVED this condo and will stay here again!

                                                                      Owner's Response:

Clean, inviting, and beautiful are great compliments, thank you! We're so glad you picked 18 Ocean Place to celebrate your anniversary. We look forward to welcoming you again.

Communication was easy and the wealth of knowledge provided to us before, during, and after the stay was invaluable. Likely the most relaxing and stress free experience ever on Amelia Island, and we have been coming to the Ritz Carlton NEXT DOOR for years. Still enjoyed all the Ritz has to offer, but we could go "home". Tip top shape, newly remodeled bathrooms a home run. Kitchen most well stocked with everything you could possibly need to prepare or serve. High quality. Do not hesitate. Thanks for everything.

This condo's decor and location is perfect. But, the best part are the little details that can't be ignored make you feel so confortable and at home. My Mom kept saying " top of the line ". Between the condo, Ritz, and the beach, we did not even get in a car for 4 days...Heaven!!! Can't wait to be back. Highly recommend.
