  • The setting for a perfect vacation!

    "The condo provided the perfect setting for a wonderful family vacation with my husband, toddler, and parents. We spent most of our time at the beach or at the pool - we loved that the pool offered plenty of shade! The short walk to the beach and the pool and the ease of getting to the shops/restaurants on the plantation was ideal for us. We were able to comfortably set up a pack n' play for my daughter in the vanity/closet area of the master. The condo worked very well for our needs, and we will hope to return!"

  • Perfect Location!

    "We loved our stay at this condo in Atlantis on Amelia. The location is perfect! We were close to all the shops and restaurants and the beach was in our backyard! We enjoyed being on the ground floor where we could leave our sandy things outside on the deck and not trail sand inside when we came home from the beach. There was a TON of space inside. We loved having two bedrooms and bathrooms. The unit was dated, but clean and comfortable. It was well stocked with everything you need for a great vacation. The owner and property managers were great to work with and responded quickly to any questions. We will definitely be coming again!"

  • A Good Place to Stay in a Good Location

    "My wife and I, our daughter and their two children stayed at the Shipwatch condo for 5 nights the last week of October and are happy to add another 5 star review. The upstairs, downstairs format worked well for us, but some folks might find the downstairs a big dark. The condos on the upper levels of this 5 story building are all on one floor and the bedrooms have views as well as the living room and dining room. On the other hand, for us the quiet and the dark encouraged the grand kids to sleep in which meant we had a couple of quiet hours to drink coffee and watch the sunrise from the balcony. Amelia Island Plantation covers over a thousand acres and is anchored by the Omni resort center. The Omni is three buildings up the beach from Shipwatch along a winding road of live oaks dripping with Spanish moss. Scattered around the acreage are several restaurants and recreational opportunities for the kids like a mini-golf course, kayaking and fishing in the ponds. We didn't try any of these things because the kids wanted to concentrate on playing in the pool or at the beach and we cooked in every night. The ready access to the pool was another plus. From the downstairs (bedroom) level, you step out the door and down a short exterior stairway, cut under the building and you are at the pool. You can't get closer and you don't have to use the elevator, which friends in the upper level told us was really slow. To get to the beach you go around the pool on a boardwalk, cross a narrow fairway (look to your right for golfers, and then up some stairs and over the dunes to the beach. Great beach. At the end of October the water was still 75 so the kids were in the waves a lot. But the pool was their favorite. It is heated. I'd say to at least 80 and it is big, with three large semi-circular sections that make it look a little bit like Mickey Mouse's head from a certain angle. The section closest to the condo building is about 3-4 feet deep, the middle section is a bit deeper, and the section toward the ocean is about 8 feet deep. Lots of nice lounge chairs around the pool. This time of year there was good sun from about 10 am until about 3:30 when it went behind the building. But there was still good sun at the beach for a couple more hours. As others have mentioned the condo has all the utensils you will need, nice furniture, a big balcony and lots of tvs. Biggest plus: a great, responsive host/owner. This is not an agency managed rental."

  • Our stay at the beach

    "James is a great host and will help any way possible. Our stay was a month and we found the cabin to be very comfortable with some of the best ocean views. The front porch faces the ocean and is a great place to hang out after a day at the beach. This was our 2nd year here and will not be our last."
