About Nicole Vesy, Owner

My name is Nicole Vesy. My husband, Tom, and I have been married for 21 years (together for 25) and we have 2 beautiful children, Victoria & Thomas. My husband works at a local hospital in Canton, OH and has been with his group for 17 years. Amelia has become home to us and we hope you fall in love with her, too!

Nicole Vesy, Owner purchased this villa in 2013

Why Nicole Vesy, Owner chose Amelia Island

We learned about and fell in love with Amelia Island through a charity fund raiser called Wishes Can Happen. They grant wishes to terminally ill children. Friends of ours put their condo up for bidding and since we had never heard of Amelia we bid, won and the rest is history. Amelia immediately won our hearts. The beaches are pristine, great for shelling and shark tooth/fossil hunting at Fort Clinch. AND the best part...they are not overcrowded! The island itself has such great history. It's been under the control of 8 different flags and rumor has it that pirate treasure is hidden here somewhere!

What makes this villa unique

The minute you walk through the front door you will know why we fell in love. This 2 story villa is spacious and beautifully decorated. The open floor plan of our home will fill you with the sense of contentment, relaxation and indulgence. This 3 bedroom villa features a private master suite on the first floor and two full suites upstairs. The lanai has become our favorite part of our home. We love to sit out there in the morning listening to the birds and then winding down the day in the evening. This is a very safe, quiet and relaxing community. Amelia Island is a feeling of coming HOME and knowing this is where you belong!

We thouroughly enjoyed our stay! Mrs. Vesy helped us resolve a missing package we had delivered. The House was spacious, with a comfortable beachy feel that promoted relaxation. We walked our kids to the beach. There was a handicap accessible beach within walking distance which worked great for our daughter who is wheelchair dependent. I can’t say enough about how comfortable this house is. The owners are fantastic and made the stay even more enjoyable. Thanks!

Awesome Stay

  • 5 of 5

Property has everything you need, well maintained, beautifully appointed.

Community pool could be better maintained but considering resent hurricane it's OK.

Seven bikes help to move around without using the car.

All in all very nice property!

Thank you, Nicole.

Best regards,

Owner's Response: Thank you, Vladimir for reviewing my home on Amelia. Very happy to hear you enjoyed your stay and were able to ride the bikes too! The pool is generally very clean & relaxing. Irma threw us a curve ball prior to your stay, so thank you for understanding. We were there a few days after Irma and there were several trees down & debris everywhere. We left as they started the cleanup efforts. Hope you would consider staying with us again should your travels bring you back to Amelia! Nicole & Tom Vesy
