Enjoy the comfortable but refined decor in every room and high end kitchen of this spacious oceanfront condominium. This is the nicest place to stay, and literally right next door to The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island!

Discover paradise on Amelia Island, it is the perfect spot for families or couples and one of the most popular beaches on the East Coast. Located in an exclusive community on the unspoiled barrier island, this condo strikes the perfect balance between upscale luxury and carefree relaxation. For the eigth-consecutive year, Amelia Island is one of the top 10 U.S. island destinations and the number one Florida island destination in the Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards. Amelia Island was also voted one of the USA Today Readers' Choice 10 Best U.S. Islands. You will find these accolades are well deserved.

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 clean and bright and the master bathroom has a double vanity with two sinks, a shower and garden tub for a relaxing soak.

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.

The Ritz-Carlton property surrounds this condo. The hotel building is next door, just 100 footsteps away. The Ritz-Carlton has used our condo many times for their guests when they needed additional accommodations. As a guest at our condo you have access to the luxuries and services of the AAA Five Diamond Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island. Enjoy the world class spa or a meal at one of the four restaurants ranging from the five diamond Salt to more casual and kid-friendly settings. The Spa at The Ritz-Carlton has been voted one of the Best Hotel Spas in the 10Best Readers Choice by USA Today. The four bar lounges are available before or after dinner as well.

The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island is unique in North America as the only hotel and restaurant combination to gain the AAA 5 Diamond rating for both the hotel and its fine dining restaurant, Salt.

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 Florida North East

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Happy New Year!! Amelia Island is such a wonderful place to spend New Years and your condo is so special! Fireworks at the Ritz right in front!!! Wow! Yeah! We really appreciated all of the elegant touches and had some very memorable meals - esp. New Years Eve with local shrimp. You are truly lucky to have such a lovely second home. Thank you for sharing it.



Have a wonderful 2013!

Awesome condo on Amelia Island!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at 18 Ocean Place for a Birthday /Anniversary celebration getaway. Wow!! The condo was awesome, the minute we arrived we felt at home. Brad and Aimee put so much effort and care into their condo, so nicely decorated, well equipped kitchen, everything we would need for the beach and comfortable furniture and bedding.

I really appreciated how helpful Brad and Aimee were prior to our trip. So quickly responsive answering any question we had about their condo or the area.

The condo is in such a nice area, beautiful beach views, sunrise, bike trails, walking trails and only 10 minutes or so from Fernandina Beach, which is an awesome historic town with wonderful restaurants.

We will definitely be back!!!

Beautiful condo, great location, attentive hosts.

  • 5 of 5

18 Ocean Place is a beautiful condo, very nicely furnished and fully equipped. It has all the amenities you need to enjoy your time in the unit and on the beach. Everything seems to be thought of and provided. The private balcony, as advertised, offers a great view of the beach. The condo is located perfectly for a short drive to enjoy Fernandina Beach and its restaurants and shops, and to zip down to the Omni resort for more restaurants and shops. However, best of all is the Ritz Carlton next door. We walked over one night to have dinner in one of their great restaurants. Brad and Aimee were in constant communication with us to answer any question or concern. Our reservation was for 10 days after hurricane Irma hit Florida. Brad was in contact with us and was very reassuring that the condo would be in perfect condition and that all of Amelia Island would be available during our trip. He was right. It was a pleasure working with them. Our time there was outstanding, and we look forward to returning.

Beautiful View, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We could not have asked for a better place to spend our beach getaway. The balcony at Brad and Aimee's condo, right on the beach, is the perfect place to watch the beautiful sunrise on Amelia Island, check out the turtles & rabbits meandering in the dunes and just relax with a cold drink and good book. The condo is well appointed, thoughtfully stocked with all comforts of home & right next door (short walking distance) to the Ritz Carlton & all its amenities. Great restaurants & the historic, quaint town of Fernandina are within a very short drive. A visit to Fort Clinch is a wonderful way to explore the history of the area. Brad and Aimee were great to work with ... so welcoming, attentive & helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and look forward to a return trip.
