About the property

5 Bedroom / 4 Bathroom House - Great for Large Groups

Looking for a place to gather a large group or two families in a single home close to the beach with a private pool and hot tub at the resort of Amelia Island Plantation? Look no further.

Newly purchased in 2015, this 5 bedroom / 4 bathroom house has gone through extensive renovations and is now ready for your vacation! We have removed walls to open up the area between the kitchen and the great room, as well as installed all new tile floors, quartz countertops, tile backsplash, as well as new stainless steel appliances and washer / dryer. Also there is a swimming pool and hot tub that has been newly installed as of November 2015.

Here's the sleeping arrangements by bedroom:

MASTER BEDROOM - 1 KING sized bed with attached bathroom - walk-in shower, dual vanity, and soaking tub. Also includes flat screen TV with cable. Sleeps 2.

2nd MASTER BEDROOM - 1 KING sized bed with attached bathroom - shower/tub combo and single vanity. Flat screen LED TV with cable. Sleeps 2.

3rd BEDROOM - 2 DOUBLE beds with attached bathroom - shower/tub combo and single vanity. Flat screen LED TV with cable. Sleeps 4 kids.

4th BEDROOM - 2 TWIN/SINGLE beds with attached bathroom - walk-in shower and single vanity. Located off of the great room/den and sliding glass door to pool and hot tub. Sleeps 2.

5th BEDROOM - 1 sleeper sofa just outside 1st Master Bedroom and shares that bathroom. Sleeps 1-2.

The layout of the house is conducive to large family gatherings - there is one large central, open plan area with a combined great room and kitchen. From that central area, all five bedrooms are located separately off of that open area - think of it like a hub and spoke.

Additionally we have four bikes (2 adult and 2 kid bikes) for your use and a four person golf cart for travel to the beach in about 3 minutes as well as throughout the plantation to restaurants and other activities.

While we are in the Amelia Island Plantation, we are not part of the Omni resort and its rental program, but there are still many opportunities for you to leverage the facilities. You have access to all of the restaurants at the hotel itself as well as anywhere on the plantation, the tennis center, spa, miniature golf, and one of the golf facilities on the plantation and numerous others golf courses on the island.

This vacation rental is fully furnished and equipped with everything you need to have a great beach and island vacation - this is the one spot you will come back to over and over again!

About Karl

We have loved our vacations to Amelia Island over the years especially the Amelia Island Plantation resort with all of its amenities as well as the historic district, so we decided to purchase a home to enjoy the beach and all of the activities on the island.

Karl purchased this house in 2015

Why Karl chose Amelia Island

When you drive up to the plantation and approach the canopy of oak trees and moss, your blood pressure drops and you feel like you are on vacation. At our home there is peaceful solitude, unquestionable natural beauty, sports activities, and great restaurants / night-time activities - all a short golf cart or bike ride away.

What makes this house unique

For us, proximity to the beach was key and once we found this house, we completely updated it - removing walls and opening up the area between the kitchen and then fully updating the kitchen and great room - new tile floors, quartz countertops, tile backsplash, stainless steel appliances, washer/dryer, and all new flat screen LED TVs throughout. We have also put in high speed wi-fi internet with a Chromebox computer so you can easily access the internet.

This house can sleep 11 and is ideally suited to two families with a mix of adults and children. The way the house is laid out it is great for gathering in the main central area or retreating to the solitude and quiet of your own bedroom. Also the pool / hot tub is visible accessible from all sliding glass doors from the main area to the back yard.

Another important point is its location inside the plantation - we are on the beach side of 1st Coast Parkway (A1A), so there are no busy streets to cross to get to the beach.

Serene and spacious getaway

  • 5 of 5

I visited Amelia Island with a group of women for a photo conference, we all stayed here together. I'll say right off the bat that each one wanted to write their own amazing review of this home, our experience there was wonderful. Karl was so extremely accommodating and extremely responsive to any questions that happened to pop up (although there weren't many questions that popped up, we were provided with very detailed information about the home as well as the area). The house was extremely clean, and the open layout of the main areas made it great for groups to spend time together. I don't' know about all of the other beds, but the one I slept in was magnificently comfortable. And the layout was perfect, enough bathrooms for everyone not to be crammed, and the bedrooms were spaced out nicely. We also loved how private the whole property was. The golf cart made getting around the property exceedingly easy. I really have nothing even remotely negative to share about this place, it was perfect. I'm cooking up a way to come back with my family next time!

As advertised. Great House and location.

  • 5 of 5

Everything is exactly what it seems in the photos. House is located near the end of a quiet road but close enough to the beach, shops, and restaurants. The owner was easy to work with and provided accurate and timely info for access to the property. I would highly recommend this house.

Incredible Memories created in a Great Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent four nights in this home and created great Christmas memories. Karl provided EXCELLENT details about the home and the area. It was one of the smoothest rentals ever!!!!!!

The home is fully equipped with kitchen items and linens. A big plus is that each bedroom has its own bathroom. The beds were comfortable. The location is very close to anything you want to do on Amelia Island. The home is located on a resort property so you have several dining options within a golf cart ride away. A Harris Teeter grocery store and liquor store are within minutes from the property.

This is a perfect property if anyone in your group has mobility issues. Other than a small step into the house it is all on one level.

The living room is a nice place to gather as it has a very large TV and comfortable couches.

The outside area is awesome. Granted due to the trees, leaves do fall into the pool within minutes of the pool people cleaning it, but the trees make the area peaceful and beautiful so no one should complain about the leaves. Plus they are easy to scoop out of the pool.

We took "Bubbles" (the golf cart) to the beach several times. It is a very short ride to the parking area for the beach.

The water pressure in the showers was nice and strong. We always had plenty of hot water.

Although you are in a neighborhood, the way the houses are placed on the property you feel really secluded. It was very quiet while we were there.

We did not have any issues at all, but I'm confident if we had that Karl would have responded immediately.

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this beautiful home. The owner has the house well stocked, unlike many others we have rented. We were there in December and opted not to have the pool heated but thoroughly enjoyed the hot tub.

Car: recommended

Our house is in the gated community of Amelia Island Plantation with its beautiful natural setting. We are a short distance to the beach - 3 minutes by golf cart, 5 minutes by bike, or 15 minute walk.

We are also on the beach side of First Coast Parkway (A1A), so there are no busy streets to cross to get to the beach.

There is a swimming pool and hot tub that has been newly installed as of November 2015!
