ONE OF VRBO'S MOST POPULAR AMELIA ISLAND PLANTATION LISTINGS NOW UNDER NEW OWNERSHIP, AUGUST 2017.
This property is directly beside our sister listing, Sea Glass Cottage, which can be found at VRBO #1258655. Both places are located within Turtle Dunes (Amelia Island Plantation), which is known for its quiet beachfront and the gorgeous, large Turtle Dunes pool (our favorite pool in the entire Plantation)!! Each 2 BR/2BA adjacent property is ideal for your family/friends to relax...OR rent both properties for wedding groups, reunions or large family vacations and have 3 consecutive ground floor ocean patios.
Walk out to the beach DIRECTLY from your oceanfront patio. Condo is situated in the very last building at the south end of the Amelia Island Plantation resort farthest from the Omni Hotel and crowds. It is also on the south end of the building which offers the quietest experience... oceanfront with an easy walk across the grass to the renovated Sea Turtle private access pool.
The Master Bedroom has a spacious King Bed, Private Bath, HDTV and access to the patio. The ocean and sunrise are both easily visible while lying in bed through the oceanfront window. The Second Bedroom Also Has a King Bed, HDTV and entrance to the 2nd Bathroom. The Living Room has HDTV, DVD & CD Players. All 3 TVs offer a good selection of channels, ESPN, etc. Queen Sofa Bed for Additional Sleeping Arrangements.
Kitchen is Fully Equipped for all of your cooking needs.. This is a VERY CLEAN, updated Non-Smoking getaway. From luxury Turkish bath towels to Southern Tide beach towels, we furnish our place with the same things we use in our own home. We don't want guests to feel like they are staying in a hotel, but rather at the family beach cottage!
When you are not on a relaxing beach walk, try jogging or riding under the live oaks on the long paved trails. Tennis on private courts is only a 1-2 minute walk from the building. Enjoy golf at several fabulous local courses.
Enjoy the First Class Spa on the Plantation or splurge at the spa and pool at the Ritz for an afternoon. Eat at the Falcon's Nest, Marche Burnette, or Plae on site or the famous Salt Restuarant at the Ritz. Our place is only a 5 min drive up A1A to the newly renovated Harris Teeter, which is a flagship store for the grocery franchise. It carries an extensive wine selection. There are also tons of quality shops only minutes away.
The island has fantastic historic downtown Fernandina Beach, which is great for dining out, shopping, or book browsing. Walk the marina, take a sunset cruise or bring fresh seafood right off the docks back home for an intimate family meal. On the north end is Fort Clinch State Park and the condo is within walking distance by beach to view the large oceanfront homes on the secluded south end as well as quiet Amelia Island State Park. Off the south end of the island are also Big & Little Talbot State parks. Enjoy a day of kayaking at Little Talbot.
Horseback riding, bird watching, hiking, fishing, and boating are also possible and the horses will ride all the wall up from the south end of the island to our place! Cumberland Island day trips can be arranged for exploring and private picnics.

About Holly and Kris
Just a girl and a boy (and of course our dog Major) who have always wanted a place on Amelia to call home. We want our place to help families reconnect with each other. Our lives are just too busy and none of us ever stop to spend quality time together unless we are on vacation. Our prayer is simply to create a warm space where you can feel relaxed and eager to reconnect with those you love and care about the most!
Holly and Kris purchased this Condo in 2017
Why Holly and Kris chose Amelia Island
We love living on the tranquil south end of the island in the last condo building that can be built on the south end of the Amelia Island Plantation resort. We enjoy having the benefits and security of the resort while feeling the relaxation of seeing nothing but sand, sea and lots of green grass!
What makes this Condo unique
This condo feels more like a cottage with the best of all worlds. We love the 10 ft ceilings, private oceanfront patio on the quiet end of the building. Its far enough away from the gated access pool to hear the waves all day without Major needing to run more than 4 tennis ball throws to get to the sand or poolside.

Adorable beach condo with beautiful views
We loved our stay and hope to come back one day! Gorgeous condo with all the amenities you could need. Very clean and nicely decorated. The first floor made staying with 2 young kids so nice. Going up and down to the beach with naps and feedings is usually stressful at the beach, but it was such a short easy walk! This has been my favorite family beach trip so far. Loved that we could run on the beach with a jogger stroller, plenty of trails to walk and ride bikes. Enjoyed local mini golf and food. Great place!!!
This was an incredible experience. The owners were so informative and helpful. The property was so beautiful and peaceful. The beach so cared for as everyone leaves no footprints and turtles lay undisturbed nesting. So welcoming and relaxing. We truly can’t wait to return.
Beautifully appointed condo with excellent location!
We had a great visit at Kris and Holly's condo. It is beautifully decorated, the kitchen has everything you'll need, and the beds are super comfortable. We look forward to returning soon!
Immaculate and Beautifully Decorated Condo!
We loved staying at this immaculate and beautifully decorated condo! It was equipped with all the essentials, as well as thoughtful extras including a first aid kit! This condo truly felt like home! We appreciated being on the ground level which was perfect for easy beach and pool access, and great for our dog. The owners are wonderful to work with, and kept in touch by email to ensure things were going smoothly with our stay. We highly recommend this condo, and hope to return to Amelia Island soon!
My daughter and her family thoroughly enjoyed their stay - easy access to the beach helped keep it fun for toddlers! Kris was a great host and very accessible. Thanks so much for everything!
Amazing Vacation on Amelia Island!
Sea Turtle Cottage on Amelia Island was thoughtfully appointed. The accommodations exceeded all expectations and our family of 4 had an amazing vacation. The condo was in excellent condition and included all of the amenities you could possibly need. The view of the ocean was so pretty and the first floor condo provided easy access to the beach, pool and walking paths. It was quiet and private. The owners, Holly and Kris, provided a list with details of many of the local restaurants, things to do and essential contact information. They went above and beyond to ensure all of our needs were met or exceeded. Our family is looking forward to returning to Amelia Island and the Sea Turtle Cottage. Thanks for the outstanding customer service and making our vacation spectacular! Sincerely, Cheryl L.
