About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4

This 2 bedroom/2 bath condo is located in Sea Dunes within Amelia Island Plantation. It is a flat, one story unit with few steps. Sea dunes is a part of the Dunes Club Community and is located on the southern end of the Plantation.

This condo was charmingly updated and decorated to have a "cottage feel", and is located as close to the ocean as any condo on the Plantation. There are 4 steps from parking lot to enter condo and the beach access located right outside the back patio is a wooden ramp, no steps.

The master bedroom and great room open directly to the oceanfront patio, that is equipped with outdoor furniture for dining and enjoying the ocean breeze and sunrise. The grassy area right outside the patio doors is a perfect playground for children, and the ocean and pool are just steps away!

This condo is tiled throughout and equipped with 3 flat screen televisions, WIFI and a land line with unlimited long distance. The kitchen is stocked with everything that you need, and all linens are included, along with beach towels and beach chairs. A covered drive through entryway, allows for easy loading and unloading, and parking is available right outside the front door.

With this rental, our guests enjoy access to the beautiful Dunes Club pool, and the gorgeous beachfront that runs throughout the island. There are walking and biking trails on and off the plantation, and bike and golf cart rentals are available.

We have another oceanfront and ground floor condo on Amelia Island Plantation that is listed VRBO #355547. This condo is in the Windsong complex which is considered to be one of the premier properties on AIP. We offer our golf cart with this condo for an additional rental fee. The condo has 2 bedrooms/2-1/2 baths with about 1700 square feet of living space and the great room opens right onto the pool.

Golf is available on the Ocean Links and Oak Marsh courses on the Plantation, and our guests also enjoy access to two hard court tennis courts that are exclusive to the Dunes Club Community.

Please note that we can no longer provide the resort amenity card for our guests, and that Omni has restricted access to the hotel pool, fitness center and Racquet Park for their guests and club members. I will gladly answer any questions about activities and amenities, and can offer alternatives in close proximity to the Plantation.

The spa is world class and is located in the shops area of the plantation. There are numerous shopping and dining options in this area as well, and the Nature Center offers lots of fun and family activities.

Historic Fernandina Beach is just a short drive to the north end of the island and is the 2nd oldest town in the country. Fernandina hosts many wonderful restaurants and shops, and the nightlife is entertaining and suitable for young adults and families.

About Jaymie Salley

We are originally from South Carolina, but spent most of our married life in Tampa, Florida. We have 3 grown sons who love fishing, boating and anything to do with the outdoors. After vacationing for many years at Amelia Island with our family, we decided to purchase on the Plantation which is a good meeting point for our children and family who live throughout the southeast. This is our second 'home away from home', as we also have a condo in Windsong Villas which is listed on VRBO #355547.

Jaymie Salley purchased this condo in 2014

Why Jaymie Salley chose Amelia Island

We actually made an offer that was accepted on this condo, without even seeing it. At the time we lived in Memphis, TN and were a 12 hour car drive from Amelia.

My sister viewed the condo for us when it first went on the market, and said it was just adorable! She couldn't say enough about the wonderful location and decor of this condo, and we knew from past experiences, that you can't wait when a really good one comes on the market.

So, we went for it, and are so excited to be able to share it with others who love Amelia Island Plantation as much as we do.

What makes this condo unique

We love the serenity of the Plantation accompanied by the amenities of a beautiful and gated resort. The town of Fernandina is so quaint and we enjoy the shops and wonderful outside dining that is offered at most restaurants. We also love to 'golf cart' to watch the sunset and kayak out of Walker's Landing. Amelia Island has everything that we enjoy doing without ever having to leave the Plantation if we don't want to.

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

The property was well kept, clean, and well stocked. The close walk to the beach was great. It was very easy to unload and load since we were able to park directly in front of the property. We had a great stay and would choose this property again!

Great view and literally just steps away from the ocean

  • 5 of 5

Property felt very quiet and secluded. The pool complex associated with Sea Dunes was an added bonus.

beautiful ocean front condo

  • 5 of 5

very nice, exceptionally clean, and tastefully decorated 2BR oceanfront condo. Cleanest rental I've ever had from VRBO. The grounds are beautiful and the pool is exceptional. Even the patio furniture is very nice. Great T.V.'s, well-stocked kitchen and updated bathrooms with hand made soaps. Nice key pad for the entry and never have to keep up with a key. Enjoyed walking my jack russell on the walking paths in Amelial Island plantation. Very nice Hunter Douglas shades although the MBR could use drapes for late sleepers. We'll definitely rent again and recommend this unit to family and friends.

Wonderful Stay at Beautiful Ocean Villa

  • 5 of 5

Everything about our stay at this beautiful villa was wonderful. It is spotlessly clean and meticulously maintained, which is hard to find when searching for pet-friendly vacation rentals. The pictures do not do this place justice. It is on the ground floor and the ocean and pool are only a few steps away from the back door. We rented a golf cart for one day and thoroughly enjoyed exploring the Plantation. Thank you Jaymie for sharing your lovely home with us and for being such a wonderful hostess. We will definitely be back and it cannot be soon enough!!!!

Immaculate villa steps from the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful villa. It is rare to find pet-friendly accommodations that are so meticulously maintained. Loved being able to walk just a few steps to the beach, and seeing the tortoise (who traveled from our back yard to the beach to sit next to us for a moment then moved on) dolphins, birds, etc. We enjoyed the spectacular Plantation golf courses, fishing at Aury Island, and the ice cream at Marche Burette. We will definitely stay here again! Thanks to Jaymie who is a terrific host.

Amelia Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our week on Amelia. We had an excellent time and found this unit to be very well equipped with direct pool and beach access. It was very clean and had all the conveniences of home. We will definitely return here on our next visit to Amelia!
