R&R sums it up nicely!

  • 5 of 5

What a relaxing retreat and escape from work stresses! Beach time, then pool time, a little lunch and a good book - rewind and start again! The weather cooperated perfectly during our stay. This isn't our first trip to Amelia Island, and it certainly won't be our last. There are no downsides... except, we wanted to stay longer. Counting the days until we can head back to our favorite beach spot.

Misled and disappointed

  • 2 of 5

Pros

Nice balcony

Parking is under the building in the shade.

Not a bad walk to pool & beach.

Two bedrooms

Owners were very nice.

Clean & comfortable.

Pool is nice.

Close to town.

CONS

Far Overpriced.

The corner they brag about is BY THE ROAD. TO WIT:

It being a corner unit, is used as a selling point when many other key details are left out.

The twin buildings of the condo complex are arranged like an "H".There are 3 floors in each. This is significant because:

Only the 6 units on the East ends are next to the beach and have an ocean view.

On Google Maps street view S.Fletcher Ave. just south of the Simmons Rd. intersection. There will be two units by the road (Fletcher). This one is the north side unit.

There is NO BEACH VIEW. This Unit is on the west end by the road, the main entrance and the garbage dumpster; on the first floor. (The shamefully misleading claim that there is some kind of ocean "view" means that, from a corner of the deck you can look far off into the distance; through the entire length of the corridor between this condominium and the neighboring one, and can catch a tiny glimpse of seawater. Hardly the panorama of a tropical paradise that the description makes it out to be.)

It is far away from pool. You have to go out your door and then walk down the corridor JUST TO SEE the pool.

There is constant road noise.

The balcony overlooks the parking lot and the garbage dumpster with a straight out view of the next condo over.

The front entrance LIGHTS SHINE ALL NIGHT into the bedroom. They only have white blinds, no curtains (let alone darkening curtains). ALL night it seems as though dawn is just breaking. There's never a dark time.

You are right next to the garbage dumpster; and the master bedroom is closest to it of any room.

THE GARBAGE TRUCK COMES AT 5:20 AM WEDNESDAY MORNING; WHICH YOU HAVE A FRONT ROW SEAT FOR. YOU ARE THE CLOSEST CONDO TO IT IN THE ENTIRE COMPLEX.

YOU GET TO BE AWOKEN BY THE GROWL OF THE ENGINE, THE BEEPING OF THE BACK UP WARNING, THE SUSTAINED INCREASED RPM OF THE ENGINE AS THE HYDRAULIC PUMP IS ACTIVATED AND THE THUMPING OF THE DUMPSTER ON THE TRUCK AS THEY ENSURE THAT EVERYTHING IS KNOCKED LOOSE: ALL LITERALLY RIGHT OUT YOUR WINDOW AT 5:20 AM WEDNESDAY AND ONE OTHER MORNING.

There was no king bed. The Master bedroom has a queen, the other a full.The Master bed had a saggy worn out mattress.

All things considered, it was quite over-priced, especially considering it had no beach overlook.

Owner's Response: Hi Dave & Shelly Thank you again for the booking so sorry you were disappointed. I am curious why it took you 4 months to post your review. Also very curious to know why u did not call me immediately after you arrived to voice your disappointment as I would have immediately refunded your fee in full. Your review is incorrect in every way. My villa is not the Ritz, actually it is much cooler than the Ritz . Clean and undated, quiet, and well stocked and there is a pristine view of the beach and salt water pool ocean side and lovely . Everything in my VRBO ad is the truth. I remember the days when my family could not afford a vacation so I I keep the price down as much as possible. I am proud of my villa and our entire complex as my husband has been on the board for years. I discount your review entirely. BTW in 20 years of leasing you are only the 3rd guest to have ever communicate to me anything negative . You were given an excellent price to vacation in a heavenly location on a beautiful beach in a villa that is manages by my friend that actually lives on-site and you never voiced your issues to me or Gerry who is in her office every day. My villa is ocean view as it clearly states in the VRBO ad not ocean front. If you were looking for ocean front you should have booked a place that is ocean front and you would pay more money. Also most guest are so appreciative that I do not hold any deposit after they depart . Dave & Shelly I wish you guys the best but please do not dump on my sweet villa because you did not do your due diligence. I have been in Real Estate for 35 years and have NEVER misrepresented my business in any way. All the Best. Jay and Nancy Miller

Quiet and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Short walk to the beach probably 5 minutes, about a 2 minute walk to the pool and an excellent view of the beach from the Condo. The Condo is the first unit closet to the street but well worth it. Nice and Clean and very quiet so relaxing was not an issue. Highly recommend. Would stay again.

Mixed review

  • 2 of 5

The property has a great location. The building is on the beach with a lovely pool.

Also NOTE this unit is NOT beachfront. The balcony has a faraway view of the ocean from the side of the building.

Upon arrival (albeit late pm so we were unable to contact management or owner that evening) the bed in the smaller bedroom had dirty sheets. There were no additional sheets or blankets in condo.

And the living room furniture is worn; the beds uncomfortable.

The hot water heater did not reliably deliver enough or very hot water. When letting both owner and manager politely know our concerns we were met with a less than apologetic attitude and overall annoyance and an attitude of blame.

Apparently someone looked into the hot water problems but were told no issue existed.

We will not return to this condo or building.

Perfect Condo for our family beach vacation to Amelia Island

  • 5 of 5

My family and I ( 2 adults, 1 teenager, and 2 grade school kids) stayed at this condo for 3 nights after spending 4 days in Orlando. My wife and I figured we needed a "vacation from the vacation in Orlando". We desired something on the beach and with a pool and this condo fit the bill. Nancy was responsive to all inquires via email. We weren't quite sure what to expect from this condo but were pleasantly surprised when we entered.

The condo is nicely furnished and well organized. You can tell that there is thoughtfulness and effort put into the furnishings. We were provided with three trash bags as well as 2 dishwasher pods. There was also a bottle of laundry soap which was so helpful. These are small things but go a long way in my opinion (I didn't have to buy a box of trash bags or a whole container of dishwasher detergent/laundry soap for our 3 day stay). The kitchen is nicely equipped (my wife appreciated the standard coffee maker as she isn't a Keurig fan; I appreciated the blender for making drinks/smoothies for myself and the kiddos). We didn't cook that much as we chose to enjoy local restaurants, but had no issues cooking in the kitchen. Wifi worked well without issues. Access to beach and pool was fantastic. Just a short walk over the dunes to the beach. We really loved the water hoses at both ends of the walkway to the beach allowing you to wash the sand off of yourself and your stuff - great for the kids too... I also appreciate the shopping carts stored in the parking area allowing you to transfer your groceries into the cart and then take the elevator to you condo.

I would highly recommend this place for a stay on Fernandina beach. The owners take excellent care of this condo and we relished the time we had there.
