"My family and I are actually still here enjoying our week of vacation but I couldn't delay the review! My husband and 2 small children have had the best week here at Once Upon A TIde!! I was very quick to inform Elisha Mock of Mocks Management that I was very picky and selective about where I bring my family for vacation! She was quick to reassure me that this condo would fit the bill and boy was she right!! From the effortless check in with a lock box that we easily accessed and then entered into unit to the impeccable condition of the unit, we were pleasantly surprised!! The pictures don't do the unit justice and I can reassure the OCD renters that cleanliness is not an issue here! The condo was so clean that I felt relaxed with my small children laying on furniture and floor without being consumed with germs and dirt. Next, the condo owners have done a remarkable job with the decor. It is beachy but very modern and upscale. No expenses were lacking with the updated feel of the assumed renovation. I looked into other units here at Ocean Place and they don't compare! The kitchen is well stocked and beautifully finished. The beds are comfortable and include very clean and modern linens. The master bath is perfect with the large walk in shower.
The water was so calm this week and we were able to float in ocean without being bombarded with waves. The pools at the condo are never really crowded but great for us because there were several families with children so my daughter especially who is 5 always had a friend to play with. The condo is right next to the Ritz and although we have not visited it yet, people here have told us how wonderful all the shops are.
For those questioning whether Amelia Island will offer something for all types, rest assured that you will be so pleased with your visit. My husband golfs and has visited 3 courses so far. I have shopped in some really quaint shops and the restaurants are great! The Crab Trap was wonderful.
Trust me when I say that if I give this unit a thumbs up, that is a truly great compliment. I am extremely picky, controlling, and critical when it comes to rentals mostly because I have rented some condos that were misleading in details and pictures and were not clean. It has made me either a great person to give a stellar review or a real pain for the owners when I demand extra cleaning, etc. Thanks to Mocks Vacation for a truly wonderful and honest portrayal of this unit and for a wonderful vacation!!"
