Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Cozy and comfortable, this newly remodeled, second story condo is full of light. It is beautifully decorated with new furniture and lovely paintings on the walls. And the panoramic view of the beach and ocean is just what the doctor ordered!

The kitchen is finely appointed for even the most gourmet of cooks. It now boasts a beautiful granite wraparound counter with stylish new swivel chairs with hydrolic height adjustment. You can converse with the cook, spin around to talk to someone on the couch, then turn again to take in the breathtaking vision of the ocean. New lighting, fans, kitchen cupboards and paint really make this condo a show place. And the ocean is seen from every angle....

The deck has a table with four comfortable chairs for relaxing dining pleasure......or sit back and take a snooze by the sound of the waves in one of two oversized teak rockers.

And if it's the sandy beach you crave, help yourself to the beach chairs and water toys located in the box on the deck. Full of beautiful shells, the fine white sandy beach is wide and uncrowded. And right in front of the condo is what is known by the locals as the 'hot zone' for finding ancient sharks teeth of all shapes and sizes.

Our condo is located just south of Main Beach, with the historic town of Fernandina Beach just minutes away. Enjoy great shopping, plenty of casual and/or fine dining and Fernandina's very own Farmer's Market every Saturday morning.

There is so much to do - from exploring Fort Clinch to touring the beautiful historic Victorian homes by horse and buggy. There is golf, tennis, hiking and biking. And exploring beautiful Cumberland Sound on a chartered sailboat or fishing boat is an experience not soon forgotten. We are one of the last beaches in the country that still allow horseback riding right on the beach.

We host the fabulous Concourse DeElegance every year, as well as the Fernandina Beach Annual Shrimp Festival. Other annual events include the Amelia Island Book, Jazz, Blues and Chamber Music Festivals - no wonder we love living here!

This is our second home, even though it's just minutes from our primary residence. If you need anything, we're only a phone call away, so be sure to give us a ring.

Oh...and well behaved dogs...let's talk.

About leslie ritter

Steve and I got married on the beach in front of the condo, September of 2008. The double rainbow just before the ceremony was a good omen! We love this place and hope you do too! It has a wonderful aura that we noticed the first time we walked in.

leslie ritter purchased this condo in 2003

Couldn't get much better

  • 5 of 5

Location. Location. Location. This place has it. And a very nice second-floor deck overlooking the ocean with a short stroll over the boardwalk, down a short beach path with sea oats, and then onto the beach. Pitch your beach umbrella or EZ Up and enjoy. This isn't the fanciest place on the island - we saw those places further to the south - but we found this cottage to be much more to our liking. Great room and kitchen is updated, roomy and very "homey." Master bedroom was comfortable and spacious. Deck has a divider wall between you and the adjacent rental next door, which provides a nice touch of privacy. Beach shower and spray hose right at the bottom of the steps to clean feet and sandy dogs. Deck is pretty hot in the morning, but an excellent place to be in late afternoon and evening for a refreshing drink. Supermarket and other shops are an easy five-minute drive to pick up groceries and other essentials for the week such as paper towels, TP and perhaps dish soap and laundry detergent (this is a rental, so it's not a full-service, everything provided hotel). Coffee maker is a Keurig (which I'm not a fan of) so we found a 6-cup French Press at the local Publix for $12 and it worked great for the week. Short, five-minute drive to historic and scenic downtown Fernandina Beach with numerous shops and fine restaurants. Fort Clinch State Park is also a short drive away. This was our first trip to Fernandina Beach and we will likely return - I don't see any reason to consider any other lodging on the island other than this Seagate rental.

Perfect in everyway

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay a Seascape. The location is perfect! The beach is not crowded and my husband loved the surf fishing. We loved watching the sun rise on the deck with our morning coffee. It is close to town where there are so many wonderful restaurants. It was our first trip to the area and will definitely be back.

Amelia vacation

  • 3 of 5

Nice condo, clean, well appointed and we had a great time. However I had some concerns when we found several of the windows unlocked and looked as though they had been that way for some time. Also disappointed that the deck was not covered, severely limiting the time you can spend enjoying the outdoors and view.

Owner's Response: After over ten years of renting our condo, and 56 absolutely excellent reviews, this is the first somewhat negative one I've received. I'll take it! You can be sure the windows are all locked up nice and tightly, but alas, there is still no roof over the deck (never claimed there was). Best regards, Leslie

Another Great Visit to Amelia Island!

  • 5 of 5

This was out third visit to Seagate in as many years and we had another great time. The condo is clean, comfortable, and relaxing. The ocean views and access are wonderful. We especially love the opportunity to wake up to a beautiful sunrise every day and hear/watch the waves all day long. Leslie is always attentive and concerned about our comfort and enjoyment, which we really appreciate. We are looking forward to many more visits to Seagate and Amelia Island in the future.
