Overview

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 Florida North East

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.

Beach sunrises and ocean sunsets

  • 5 of 5

Words cannot express the wonderful vacation we were blessed with at Amelia Island while staying in Jaymie's condo. There is so much we loved, I don't know where to begin. To start with, the interior is so very pretty. The entire condo is very well appointed with the finest modern yet comfortable furnishings and décor. You walk out the sliding door from the living area into a grassed yard where there is the walkway with steps going across gorgeous dunes onto the never-ending beach. I'm sure it may sound like I am laying it on pretty thick. But let me tell you, we will never vacation anywhere else while at Amelia! My husband and I loved waking up early in the morning, making coffee in the Kuerig and walking out to the beach to enjoy the breathtaking sunrise. I loved sunning on the beach while my husband and our little dog lounged and slept under the umbrella and in beach chairs all provided by Jaymie. The evenings were just as beautiful and breezy. The pool area is big, beautiful and exceptionally clean also. There are lots of great convenient restaurants located nearby. Some of our personal favorites are Marche Burrette for breakfast and/or lunch,which is very nearby. We love both Café Karibo, and Espana for dinner. Both are extremely good. Others we like are T-Rays for a country breakfast, Sliders for lunch and too many others to mention. Now back to Jaymie...she is absolutely one on the sweetest, kindest, most helpful people you will encounter and I have never met her other than on the phone. Anyway... you would be very happy with this home away from home as long as I don't have it rented at the time!

Sweet memories & dreams at Sea Dunes:

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful ground floor oceanfront condo that was extremely clean & decorated with soft beach colors, furnishings, & prints. Loved relaxing on nicely furnished deck watching people, golfers, & dogs not to mention tortoises, rabbits & a couple of young deer walking through property down to dunes (evidently deer cannot read signs posted on dunes 😏�). OceOcean ). Ocean view is limited as photos indicate but still very nice view through lovely landscaping plus so very close to beach ramp. Owner so pleasant to work out details & provide information; nice to see liquid soap dispensers at all sinks, just about thought of everything, including beach chairs & umbrella although beach sand is hard to place pole in to secure if windy; recommend taking beach umbrella auger. Loved the flat wide beach & villa landscaping was beautiful; so easy to get your exercise in with all the villa & plantation walkways; also nice to have our border collie with us. Our first trip on island; so much to see with historic Fernandina as well as Omni complex and village shoppes and eateries. Would love to return to this beach condo!

Lovely place!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great condo - - tastefully decorated, probably a cut above some of the other units in the building, at least to judge from the patio furniture. It's on the ground floor, which is perfect for a dog owner and also gives the feel that the entire oceanfront is your back yard. The kitchen was sufficiently provisioned for us to make risotto and other tricky fare. We had just stayed in a condo that was part of the Omni resort, and this property - - on Omni land, but privately managed - - was much nicer. (The only tradeoff was losing access to a cacophonous, overcrowded pool - - trust me, the ocean is better.) Amelia Island itself is a treasure, and this place is right in the center of the action - - or lack thereof, which is really the point, isn't it?

Beyond All Expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Jaymie was lovely to work with during the planning process and just as great during our 2+ month stay. Her condo is everything she advertises and more; you cannot truly appreciate it until you sit on the patio (or in the living room) listening to the ocean just beyond the dunes. This was our first trip to Amelia, and we loved her home so much we are returning next winter! Everything you could possibly want or need is supplied, and it is quality - from kitchen supplies to bed linens to TVs - everything! Its location inside the plantation is an added plus with a lovely setting, very few people around the entire time, and super-quiet. Beach walks are spectacular any time of the day, and our Black Lab was in Heaven, for sure. We felt totally safe walking the bike paths alone, day or night. Restaurants on the plantation and in Fernandina Beach were fun and delicious, and Centre Street was a shopper's dream. Amelia really is a a hidden gem, and this condo is the icing on the cake!

Love it

  • 5 of 5

We've been to Amelia 7 times in the last year, staying at a different location each time and this is definitely at the top of our list. It's a short walk to the beach. Staying at the Plantation is wonderful. It seems that no matter the season it's just not very crowded. We love riding the bike and there are great bike paths through out as well as next to A1A going south to the island parks are north to town,

The condo itself is is perfect condition. Everything seems very new, which is not always the case in the Plantation and elsewhere. There's a great table and chairs on the patio to enjoy the ocean. It was still a little cool for swimming but there is a great exclusive pool for you to use.

Best of all you can bring the dogs.

We had a couple of small issues while there and Jaymie responded and took care of everything right away.

PERFECT

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed in this condo this past weekend and it was amazing! Literally steps from the beach! Everything was clean and beautiful - we had everything we needed. I DEFINITELY recommend this condo and Jaymie gave excellent instructions and suggestions. Lots of things to do right there in the resort! We will definitely return.
