Welcome To Florida's Most Enchanting Island - The Legendary Amelia Island!
One of the southernmost of the Sea Islands, Amelia Island is an amazing vacation destination that embraces the natural beauty of northern Florida.
This freshly updated two-bedroom, two bathroom condominium is situated directly on the white sandy beach of this lovely oceanfront property. Minutes away is a full scale grocery store, offering all that you may need, including wine and beer.
This unit is located on the third floor of the Amelia Surf and Racquet Club. It is situated on the south end of the property, which offers sweeping views both up and down the ocean front stretch of Amelia Island. Our end-unit balcony provides unobstructed views to the North, oceanfront, and a vast view to the South. Your view is as far as the eye can see up and down the shores of this lovely island. The recently updated kitchen and dining area of this unit offers a breathtaking seascape from the expansive picture windows overlooking the beach and boardwalk.
The Amelia Surf and Racquet Club is a gated complex which offers two beautiful swimming pools overlooking the ocean and four clay tennis courts for use on a 24 hour basis.
Our unit is located on the premier south end of the Island. The exclusive Ritz-Carlton is a stroll away on the beach, offering casual and fine dining. If golf is your passion, enjoy any of the six golf courses on the Island, including the world-renowned Golf Club of Amelia Island and the Ocean Links at Amelia Island Plantation. The charming and historic village of Fernandina offers world-class restaurants, unique shopping experiences, specialty boutiques, and an endless array of activities.
We look forward to welcoming you to this beautiful island!

Great spot at Surf and Racquet
I've stayed in many units at Surf and Racquet Club over the years and this is one of the nicest. It's a corner unit with nice direct views of ocean and coastline. The unit was clean and updated when we arrived with new furnishings, kitchen counters, carpet and patio furniture.
Quality Location, Quality Town
This room was perfect for my family needs. Laura was awesome and always quick to respond with my questions. The room was clean and it's just a short ride to downtown which was a blast too. I wish the pools were heated but we would go back to Amelia Island and would stay here again. Thanks again Laura!
Wonderful views but disappointing property
We were concerned with comments made in previous reviews before our stay, especially regarding the general cleanliness of the unit, and found our worse expectations confirmed. Since this unit is not professionally maintained it is not accountable for any minimal standards for cleanliness. To feel comfortable during our extended stay we did a thorough cleaning ourselves. Nevertheless, many walls were in need of fresh paint and area carpets were stained. Linens, beach chairs and toys were indiscriminately tossed in closets. Kitchen cabinets were also overstuffed with partially consumed food and unexplainable cleaning products leaving no room for any personal items.
The unit is very cramped. The ceilings in the kitchen/dining and bathrooms are low. There is bewildering dim lighting in the kitchen and bathrooms. The physical arrangement of the kitchen is awkward. The bathrooms are especially small and not updated except for perhaps newer tile. The shower in the master bathroom is so small it is unusable. Although there is a walk in shower in the other bathroom, the shower head is just five feet above the floor. The vanities are old and low with molded plastic countertops. The terrace was difficult to access due to the dilapidated screen door. The furniture here was too corroded to use anyway.
We did not contact the owner or manager regarding the condition of the unit as we found it since, as they did not address these same issues when mentioned in previous reviews, we felt they were not concerned. The Wi-Fi did not work but the owner did make arrangements to update their service during our stay.
The Surf and Racquet Club is a well maintained complex in an appealing area on Amelia Island.
However, the many five star reviews for this unit were mostly for the impressive ocean views. It is disconcerting for us to give this property a two star rating but feel the purpose of these reviews is to provide an honest assessment for others to be aware when considering their comfort level expectations in a rental property.
My husband and I were very disheartened to receive this review. Our Amelia Island condo is our home-away-from-home and we take great pride in maintaining it. My father is our caretaker as he lives on the Island. He too takes great pride in maintaining our property. We wish that you would have contacted us with any concerns that you had upon your arrival or during your two-month stay. We most certainly would have addressed any issues in an expeditious manner.
The carpeting in both bedrooms was replaced before your arrival, as were the area rugs. I am quite surprised to hear that there were any stains as you were the first guests to enjoy the fresh carpeting. As for the bathrooms and the kitchen, all of the units at the Surf & Racquet Club share the same general design. Our kitchen and the bathrooms are updated.
We are in the process of replacing the patio furniture. Although it is only two years old, the salty ocean breezes tend to weather outdoor furniture rather quickly. We want our guests to be comfortable and to enjoy the beautiful views from the balcony.
Great end unit with fabulous views
we enjoyed our stay at this great condo. The location on the end of the building at the end of the complex made for great views in all directions. The location of the complex is convenient to everything and yet quiet and removed from traffic. The condo was comfortable, beautiful and we'll laid out. The complex also has great tennis courts. We hope to return soon!
Love Amelia Island!
Beautiful, clean, well-stocked condo with incredible views. Our second stay here and we enjoyed it very much.
Great views and relaxing vacation spot
The condo was well appointed with everything we needed. Views were great from inside and out. We really enjoyed exploring Amelia Island!
