About the property

An ideal retreat for couples & small families. Easy elevator & beach access.

You can't get much closer to the ocean! Immerse yourself in the experience of being right on the beach with the Atlantic spread before you. An ideal couples retreat; a true get-away without traveling to the ends of the earth. The balcony & ocean-facing windows run the full 20' width of the condo; no walls blocking views of the water from your master bedroom, living room, or kitchen. Imagine being literally only a few dozen yards from the waves... welcome the dolphins, soar with the birds, enjoy surfers, fisherman (recently a team from UT were tagging sharks for NOAA or maybe you'll see turtle teams helping sea turtles nest!), take in the phenomenal sun and moon rises, and bask in the pleasure of life on the beach. The balcony is covered, providing shade midday onward. A very special experience of the ocean from your own room - not easily or often achieved. So much so, don't be surprised if you occasionally forego a trip down to the beach because you're such a part of it right there on the balcony! Top Floor unit, (actually 4th floor since ground level is parking) affording the best views all around. Enter the door, step to the balcony, slide open the door, and feel yourself slipping into that special relaxation the ocean provides!

Amelia Island and the quaint, picturesque, and historic downtown of Fernandina Beach, is genuinely lovely with an easy-going pace and refreshing non-touristy feel, just what one hopes for. Lots of great restaurants and shopping downtown and elsewhere both on and off the island. Nearby Ft. Clinch is a wondrous hike/bike/walk/drive where you can see Florida's natural beauty.

Effortless beach access, plenty of things to do and eat/shop/visit/explore, a 6-mile long beautiful beach, and a world-class balcony make this a little bit of heaven for those who want to make the most of their relaxation. We ourselves get immense pleasure staying here and hope our guests feel the same way!

About Michael & Stephanie

Initially, we discovered Coral Sands, Amelia Island, and Fernandina Beach by staying in another unit, right next door in fact, and loved the proximity to the beach and how simple, nice, and easy everything was. The view, not hidden behind dunes and on the top floor really immerses you into the experience of the beach and ocean. Instant relaxation!

Why Michael & Stephanie chose Amelia Island

A unique spot in Florida. We’ve visited the Carolina's and spots on the gulf side of Florida and while all have their charms, nothing quite matched our desires for quiet , beauty, and a sense of privacy, yet also near to practically anything you might need. The quaint little downtown of Fernandina Beach, a couple of miles across the island from the condo, provides a perfect locale for restaurants and shops.In case something more is needed, inland from the island and Jacksonville, an easy half hour away can cover any and everything. It’s an unique locale in many ways and very suitable for longer term stays.

What makes this condo unique

3rd (top) floor with unobstructed view of beach and waves. Uncrowded stretch of the island with mostly private homes nearby. No roads to cross to beach. Elevator. Covered parking . Beautiful, well-cared for interior. Well stocked kitchen. Balcony full width of condo. Amelia Island! Beach, ocean, and dining all in a beautiful location without the tourist destination feel.

Very nice place with great views from the balcony.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The beach was not crowded, the weather was beautiful, and the condo was clean and well furnished (and in a great location). The fort (state park) was nice and worth an afternoon visit. We also liked the downtown Fernandina area with all of the shops and restaurants. Timoti's was by far our favorite but we would also recommend Sabbia and Tasty's. We have already told several of our friends about our visit and would have no reservations recommending the condo or the area.

Vacation 2018

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I very much enjoyed 305 Coral Sands. It was clean, more than well stocked, personal touches that other condos do not have and best of all pet friendly. The view was fantastic. We spent more time on the deck than we did on the beach (although the beach was very nice and an easy walk). We will be back!

It rained every day, but we still had a great time . Our bed was terrible. It squeaked with every move made!

Owner's Response: I immediately replaced the frame and corrected the issue. Thanks for mentioning the supplies as we pride ourselves on a well-stocked kitchen! We stay here ourselves a few times a year and it's a real convenience to do most of what you can do at home.

A Little Slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

We never dreamed we would have our own private beach but that’s exactly what we had at Coral Sands. The condo was decorated with adorable beachy fabrics and colors with the master bedroom having a lovely view with a wall of windows. The huge balcony was where we spent our nights enjoying the relaxing sound of the surf, one night we witnessed deer running on the beach! We were steps away from the beach which was an easy walk and a beachcombers dream.Thank you Mr. Medley for the best vacation we’ve ever had. We can’t wait to book in September.

Owner's Response: What a beautiful experience and exactly what we hope for and try to provide! It is the same for us. Also, great people you meet here as well ....on the beach, the island, and fellow Coral-Sand'rs!!

Great location, located on the ocean.

  • 4 of 5

Views from balcony are great. Unit clean, a bit small, but perfect for a couple. Not to take away from the unit, but it is a bit dated. It is obvious though, the owners keep it up and respond quickly to your needs. We'd go back.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review and very glad you liked it enough to return! That's our goal! By the way, we continue to and are eager to update and upgrade items and design as time goes on. Each spring and fall we replace/change inventory and design/furnishings as needed. We like it to feel as new as possible and conducive to the main objective of a comfortable and relaxing beach vacation.
