About the Property
2 Bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms with queen sofa bed for 2 additional guests
Linens, towels, beach towels, and an initial set up of paper towels, tissues, dishwasher detergent, etc. are provided. Beach chairs, umbrellas, and boogie boards are in the locked 1 car garage for your use. There is extra space in the garage for your bicycle if you decide to bring it.
The pool and hot tub are there for your use from 9am to 10pm. There are two large gas grills behind the pool/hot tub area with large picnic benches for your use. Take a walk on the beach or through the woods at Fort Clinch State Park, bring a picnic lunch to the recreation park. Fernandina Beach is a rare jewel, somewhat off the beaten track since it is the northernmost point in the State of Florida. Ocean Park condominiums are close to the the historic downtown area with unique shops and great restaurants as well as the many activities listed as you browse this site. Come and gives us a try. It's a pleasant change from crowded beaches and exorbitant rental prices as you travel further South along the Atlantic Coast. A charming town with a friendly atmosphere - it seems very much unchanged since I first vacationed there twenty years ago. There are more and better restaurants and lovely shops, but the atmosphere is still warm and welcoming. The North end is still uncrowded and quieter than other areas of the island.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.
Paying with a credit card on VRBO protects your payment for up to $10,000 against listing fraud. We recommend completing your booking on VRBO.Learn more

Desirable Northern end of Fernandina Beach near Fort Clinch. Close to Downtown Historic District, shops, restaurants, ferry to Cumberland Island (day trip - possibly overnight depending on the season). Amelia Island is the Northernmost point of Florida so it is delightfully 'off the beaten track'. Geared more toward families and older people who enjoy the peace, beauty, quiet and safe atmosphere. Still close to any of the above activities. For a rainy day, there are books, board games, cards, crossword puzzles, coloring books, DVD's and VHS tapes (mostly for children). Most of these are located in the entertainment center in the living room. WiFi and cable channels and 2 televisions (living room and maste bedroom.. 2nd bedroom has monitor and DVD/VCR player. Master bedroom has DVD player too.
Year Purchased: 2014
About the owner: Retired but still licensed Registered Nurse, former flight attendant. Fell in love with North Florida while opening the airplane door to a 75 degree day in Jacksonville in February. I said, 'I'm going to live here someday'. Now live in Tallahassee, but some day may get to live in the condo. Would like to see you enjoy it in the meantime.
Why the Owner Chose Amelia Island, Fernandina Beach, FL, USA:
Fairly new and in excellent condition. Turn key with a very homey and comfortable feel. I didn't believe the interest rates would remain that low for long. The North end of Fernandina Beach has remained quiet and peaceful with much, much less construction than the Plantation area. Main Beach is a short walk or you may put your chairs and towels in your car and 90 seconds later park in the ample parking area in back of Main Beach. Or take a five minute walk - approximately 700-800 feet from the condo to the beach. It was the right time, the right place, and I felt it was now or never.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Large private balcony with a café table and chairs, and also wicker chairs with a table between to enjoy a drink and the beautiful well-kept landscaping, pond with fountain and colored lights. If you are an early person, the sunrises are magnificent and you can watch the changing skies in comfort (still in your pj's if you wish). It is very quiet and peaceful. There is also a water softener installed into the system so the quality of the drinking water is improved, laundry is softer and it is more comfortable for bathing and washing your hair. Beach towels provided (in your private laundry room). Beach chairs, umbrellas, bogie boards for your use are located in the locked garage which comes with the condo. Bring you bicycle if you wish. Ocean Park Condominiums are surrounded by Fort Clinch which has beautiful hiking trails and picnic areas. There is as much (or little) as you want to do. It's a great place if you enjoy riding your bicycle. The Historic District is less than two miles away, and some of my guests have used their bikes to go into town. You can rent bikes if you don't choose to bring them, rent horses to ride on the beach, play miniature golf, take a day trip to Cumberland Island and enjoy the unspoiled beauty and wild horses that run free on the island. There are other day trips on St. Mary's River. Look for Fernandina Beach.com and/or Amelia Island.com on the internet. The Historic District is about two miles away and it is a straight drive from Atlantic Avenue which becomes Centre Street on the other side of 14th St. Most of the restaurants are located in the charming Historic District with beautiful gas lights, and decorated with fairy lights. You will find that unique shops and restaurants abound. There are magnificent Victorian homes - some of which have been converted into Bed & Breakfasts. It is a charming town with friendly, helpful residents who will make you feel welcome and at home.
