About the property

Ground Level Condo On Beautiful Amelia Island Adjacent To Ft. Clinch State Park

Complete interior renovation on this unit in 2017 along with the exterior renovation to the building that was completed in 2016 means Marhaba Shores is "like new."

This corner unit is located on the ground floor which means you don’t have climb the stairs to get to your front door or to your bedroom. The open floor plan of the living room and dining area gives a spacious feeling. Leather furniture that provides plenty of reclined seating for watching the 42” flat-screen tv (premium cable channels and Netflix available), napping, or just chillin’ with friends and family. A large table in the dining area is perfect for meals, board games, or puzzles. Free high speed wi-fi internet is provided throughout the condo.

The bedrooms are located down a hallway for privacy and noise control. The large master bedroom has a queen sized bed, lots of storage, and an adjacent bathroom with a walk in shower, vanity sink, and toilet. Basic cable television with remote control and a charging station for your phone keep you connected. Sliding glass doors access a private patio with seating where you can enjoy your morning coffee while you watch the birds, or maybe you will even see a gopher tortoise or a deer.

At the end of the hallway there is a bedroom with twin beds (2). This bedroom has basic cable television, a DVD player, and charging station for your phone. Windows look out on the green space at the rear of the condo.

The third bedroom has a queen sized bed, extra large closet for storage, basic cable television and a charging station for your phone. Shared bathroom is just across the hall.

The hall bathroom has a tub with shower, vanity sink, and toilet. Bed linens, bath linens and beach towels are furnished for your use while staying at the condo.

The well-appointed kitchen adds to the convenience and affordability of your beach vacation. Major appliances, including dishwasher, garbage disposal, refrigerator with ice maker, stove with oven, and built-in microwave are there, as well as coffee maker, toaster, and slow cooker. There are pots and pans for cooking and baking, dishes, glassware, and utensils, right down to the pot holders, dish towels, and salt and pepper. If you need to do laundry, there is a washer and a dryer at the condo.

The Fernandina Shores condo complex has a tennis court and pool which are available for your use and are conveniently located just down the sidewalk from this unit.

Grab a beach chair and towel and head for the ocean, which is a short 3 block walk from the front door. There are beach lifeguards on duty during the summer from Memorial Day through Labor Day weekend. The amenities on the north end include Main Beach Park, with a beachfront children’s playground, volleyball courts, covered gazebos, and mini-golf at Fernandina’s Putt-Putt (a blast from the past). The nearby Fernandina Beach Skate Park is open to the public daily from dusk to dawn.

The condo is adjacent to the historic Ft. Clinch state park property. Fort Clinch is one of the most well-preserved 19th century forts in the country. Take a tour and see re-enactors bring the fort to life for visitors. Hikers and bicyclists can enjoy a six-mile trail through the park.

Speaking of biking, there are bicycle rental concessions on the island, and miles of paved and off-road paths to explore. The Amelia Island Trail is an off-road paved trail on Amelia Island’s south end that runs along sections of the island’s large resorts. The trail runs between the Nassau Sound bridge at Amelia Island State Park all the way to Peters Point Park beach access. Bike lanes continue south off the island along A1A and connect with trails at Big Talbot Island State Park. Explore the interior of the island biking on the 7 miles of trails along the Egans Creek Greenway.

Downtown Fernandina Beach is just a couple of miles away. Step back in time as you stroll the streets of this quaint, historic seaport with shopping, galleries, museums, and historic homes and architecture. At day's end watch the sunset over the harbor, and then enjoy dinner at one of the many dining options---on the riverfront, Centre Street, or in a quiet courtyard down a side street.

If you are planning a family vacation, spring break get-away, reunion, wedding, or checking out places to retire or relocate, we invite you to consider this your home away from home while you are here. Marhaba! Welcome!

Lovely condo in amelia

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time at this location. I can't say enough about how clean and comfortable this condo is. The owner responds very quickly to any questions. Our family really enjoys visiting here and we hope to go again!

Great for pets!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed staying at this very nice condo. The location was fabulous, very close to the beach, Ft. Cinch, and historic downtown. We loved the comfy leather recliners in the living room and the kitchen was well-equipped. The only thing we missed was a grill to cook outdoors. The best part of the condo was how pet-friendly it is. It's a ground floor end unit that is right next to a very large grassy dog walking area. The owner responded very quickly to our questions and refunded our deposit immediately after check-out. Highly recommend!

Exactly as described!! Perfect for small families.

  • 5 of 5

This is our 4th trip to Fernandina Beach and the house where we usually stay was booked so I found this place and it could not have worked out any better! Nice size bedrooms and bathrooms. A very close walk to the beach. Everything was just what we needed. Highly recommend.

They Thought of Everything!

  • 5 of 5

We were so impressed with this property! It was very clean and nicely furnished and we did not lack for anything. Not only were the usual things provided - linens, dishes, etc. - but the owner/property manager went above and beyond. There were beach towels, sand toys for the kids, games, laundry soap...even a beach cart to lug all of our stuff down to the beach. It was nice to have access to a pool, as well, for our small grandchildren who were not terribly impressed with the beach! We will definitely stay here again!

Cute condo near the beach

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in this well kept and very cute condo. We came into town to visit family on the island and to race in the Jacksonville triathlon. There was plenty of space for our family of 5 and the location on the north side of the island was very convenient. Great spot to enjoy nature, convenient to Fort Clinch, the marsh, main beach and restaurants. We had some rain, so the movies, games and puzzles in the condo came in handy to keep the kiddos entertained. Excellent VRBO with owners who very obviously care for their property. Highly recommend this rental and would book again.

Very clean cozy and a short Walk to the beach!

  • 4 of 5

We loved this condo! It was clean, spacious, tvs in every room. We enjoyed the outdoor sitting areas with deer walking around the property! The walk to the beach wasn't bad at all. It's also about a mile from Egan Creek park which has outdoor workout equipment for adults! The only thing that would have made this property better would have been somewhere to hang up beach towels outside! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
