We are an Iowa couple (semi-retired educators at Marshalltown Community College) who fell in love with Amelia Island and Fernandina Beach; we know you will too!
You will also love our condominium villa at Amelia Landings Resort. It is nestled in a very secluded, oak-lined, serene setting. Yet, you are a five- to ten-minute walk to a public access on beautiful Amelia Island beach!
A short, private drive leads you to our building, and there is ample parking. Extra parking for boats, trailers available--just ask.
Our villa is on the second floor of a three-story building. (Unfortunately, there is not an elevator in the building, so our condo is not handicapped accessible.)
You spoke-we listened! We have maintained the SAME RATES FOR OVER 10 YEARS!! We we have also continued to provide discounts for senior (55+) and military (active, former, retired, reserve, guard, and even dependent) guests. No proof is needed for either category. Just tell us--if we can't believe our seniors and our military men and women, who can we trust!!
We are are now taking reservations for the entire year:
-- The POPULAR spring and summer (March-July): Upper Rate Season
-- The BEAUTIFUL fall (August-October): Medium Rate Season
-- The PEACEFUL winter (November-February): Lower Rate Season
We love any time of the year on Amelia Island, and so will you, but spring, early summer, and the fall periods are our favorites!
Updates every year! Over the last several years we have:
-- remodeled both the Master and Guest bathrooms
-- replaced kitchen and laundry appliances (refrigerator, dishwasher, disposal, washer/dryer)
-- put new mattresses in both the Master Bedroom (Queen Beautyrest) and the Guest Bedroom (Twin KingKoil)
-- remodeled the kitchen (Feb 2013) (new cabinets, counter tops, sink, faucet, range hood and microwave)
-- added Paula Deen cookware to the kitchen
--removed carpeting and installed wood flooring (11mm laminate) with extra sound dampening insulation
-- purchased new living room, bedroom, and balcony furniture
--removed wallpaper and painted all surfaces (Feb, 2015)
-- installed larger flat-screen television in the LR and updated guest BR TV (Jan, 2015)
--replaced balcony light/fan combination (Feb, 2015)
--Replaced the entire A/C and Heating system, including premium user-operated temperature control (Mar 2015)
--added new art and rearranged the pieces to better fit the decor
-- slowly built a collection of books, DVDs, and CD's. (You may wish to bring your family favorites--our collection is still small! We love it when guests contribute to our "Little Library"!)

About the owner: Welcome to our vacation home! We live in Marshalltown, Iowa, and we are both retired from the Iowa Valley Community College District in Marshalltown, where Linda was a Library Supervisor and Bob was a Professor of Psychology. We both continue to teach psychology classes part time. Linda has two adult sons, one in Mason City, IA, and one in Long Beach, CA. Bob has three adult daughters, two in Orlando, FL, and one on Daniel Island, SC. We have four wonderful grandsons and a super-duper step-granddaughter (we call her our gift grand daughter!). When we are not traveling to see kids, we spend a lot of time (and our children's inheritance) on house renovation, both in Marshalltown and on our condo. We also love to travel and have in the past few years been to The Netherlands, Luxembourg, France, Belgium, Key West, and Cuba. We recently cruised in the Bahamas, departing from Cape Canaveral, FL. The young lady in the picture with us is our first exchange student. Priscilla is from The Netherlands and she loved traveling with us to Amelia Island and elsewhere in America!
Why the Owner Chose Fernandina Beach, FL, USA:
Since we have daughters and grandkids living in the Orlando and Charleston areas, we wanted a place roughly half way between the two locations. Fernandina Beach on Amelia Island is just perfect for us! We winter in the condo and rent it out the remainder of the year.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
All the comforts of a (ok, small, 850 SF) home, at rates that will surprise you! Senior and military discounts, return visitor discount, a free one-week stay after six stays with us, and occasional 'surprise specials' such as our amazing '20% Black Hole' special--just ask!
- Primary: +1 6417502835 Bob's Cell--Anytime
- Secondary: +1 6416919048 Linda's Cell--Anytime
