The SpaceOur condo was completely remodeled from sub-floor to ceiling in early 2013. Even the things you don't see like the HVAC system and hot water heater are over-sized and new. You will not find a nicer 2 bedroom, 2 full bath condo so close to the beach anywhere near this price, so come and enjoy a fantastic vacation in an impeccably appointed recently remodeled villa at an amazing destination.
Our villa is a bit over 800 square feet with an open floor plan connecting the kitchen, dining and living areas. It is on the second floor of a three-story building closest to the pool, tennis courts and picnic/grill area. Unfortunately, there is not an elevator in the building, so our place is not considered handicap accessible. Amelia Landings is a pet-free community so no pets are allowed on the premises. Smoking is not allowed indoors.
Everything in this condo is new as of April-May 2013. This includes the floating wood and tile floors with ample area rugs, the tiled master bath, and walk-in shower with bench seat, the vanities, toilets & fixtures in the bathrooms and the lighting throughout with fans in living room, bedrooms and screened in balcony. The kitchen now has spectacular all solid wood shaker style cabinets and all new appliances including a Samsung bottom freezer/refrigerator with ice-maker, an LG glass top range with coil-less oven, a GE over-range microwave, a Moen sink and faucet, a Bosch stainless steel dishwasher and counter tops. The kitchen is fully stocked including everything you would expect, like a coffee maker with coffee, and filters, basic cooking spices, Oneida RevereWear copper-clad stainless steel pots & pans and of course dishes, cups, glasses, flatware and cooking utensils. The living room has an inviting Italian leather couch and 2 plush chairs to relax in while reading or watching the new HD flat screen TV.

Amelia Island is consistently rated in the top 10 island vacation destinations in the US. TripAdvisor’s Travelers Choice 2013 Winner (#9), “Amelia Island loves a (family-friendly) party! The small Sea Island is particularly well known for two annual festivals: the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance and the Isle of Eight Flags Shrimp Festival. But there’s plenty to do year-round. Hit the beach for some water sports, explore the island on horseback, take in a show at a community theater or just wander around the charming historic district. The Amelia Island Museum of History offers educational walking tours, including a spooky Ghost Tour that will give you delicious chills.” The Family Vacation Critic (#8), “Nestled off the coast of northeastern Florida, just over the border from Georgia, [Amelia Island] is the last of the southern barrier islands that are made up of pristine, dune-filled beaches. Four major state parks and a national park are within reach of this quiet, preserved stretch of land where hiking, biking, horseback riding and camping helps your family escape our technology-filled world. There's history here, as well, with Fort Clinch reminding of Florida's place in the Civil and Spanish-American Wars. Moss-draped, centuries-old oaks pave the way into Fernandina Beach, a historic town filled with boutiques and homes. Amelia Island has a mild climate throughout most of the year, growing hot and humid in the summer months, which makes ideal weather for canoeing, kayaking, and sailing.”
The Amelia Landings condominium complex is nestled in an impeccably maintained southern live oak stand a block from the famous Amelia Beach. You can easily walk not only to the beach but numerous other places to eat, drink and shop.

We provide 2 bikes but no helmets. The information about how to access the bikes is available in the condo in the "What you need to know" flyer. There is a lock provided, PLEASE use it when you take the bikes out. If you were to need more bicycles, there is a bike rental only a 5 minute walk from the condo. Bikes are a wonderful way to take a leisurely-paced ride on enough trails and paths to give you a change of scenery each day. The island provides a number of options from rugged trails winding past century-old, moss-laden live oaks and natural waterways to smooth scenic coastal paths.

Our villa in Fernandina Beach on Amelia Island can be your central point for travels to Savannah (2hrs), St. Mary's and Cumberland Islands (to see the wild horses!) (1hr), the attractions in Orlando, NASA and the Cape, Cocoa Beach (3 hrs), Daytona Beach (2hrs), Jacksonville (45 min), historic St. Augustine (75 min), and much, much more. Getting AroundI recommend that my guests have a car available as public transportation is not an option on Amelia Island.

There is ample parking right at the entrance to our condo.
