This villa is perfect for a family.The living quarters and balcony on the top floor consist of the living room, dining room, kitchen and wet bar as well as a powder room.

The lower floor affords much privacy as all three bedrooms have their own bathroom. Washer and dryer are also on this floor. Each floor has an entrance from the outside.

The Shipwatch heated swimming pool and ocean are visible from the balcony with easy and quick access to both from the villa.

Why Jane Wells chose North East Florida

My husband and I wanted beach property where we could vacation with our children, but have close proximity to our home in Savannah. We had visited the Plantation twice and appreciated its peacefulness and natural surroundings. It was not a typical vacation playground. We all through the years have enjoyed the beautiful beach, the Shipwatch pool, fishing, golf, bicycling and nearby Fernandina for its unique Victorian atmosphere with plenty of quaint shops and restaurants.

What makes this villa unique

Being able to sit on the balcony and listen to the ocean! There is a sense of privacy in the Plantation's tranquility.

I would not hesitate to rent this unit again! Jane and Gilbert were so attentive to emails and questions, and very quickly handled an issue we had upon artival. They treat you like family! The condo is beautifully decorated , so comfortable and much larger than we anticipated. Plenty of room to escape each other with separate floor for bedrooms. Kitchen well stocked too! Has an obstructed ocean view but its so close by , you can be there in a minute! Was a pleasure stayng there!

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We have rented condos at Amelia for 20+ years. This unit was the best! It is well decorated, clean, has plenty of room in the dining and living areas and kitchen, a large private balcony, and large bedrooms with 3 1/2 baths. The condo was so "well stocked". Usually when you rent, the owners provide just the basic kitchen items which requires you to either buy aluminum pans or other additional cooking pans in order to to cook a meal. This unit has it all. We were able to prepare all meals without purchasing any additional kitchenware. The owners are very professional and a delight with whom to work.

Family reunion

  • 5 of 5

I have a brother and several nieces and nephews who live in the Dayton area, a sister who winters in Tampa area, and a brother who winters at Amelia Island Plantation. Every year my wife and I, and two other brothers, come to Amelia for a reunion. We have stayed at a number of places on the plantation, but this one takes first prize. Spacious, open, well decorated (you know your in Florida) and clean as can be. The 2 story design gives ample opportunity for privacy and it's size never makes you feel crowded. The best feature of all is a full bath off of every bedroom and the half bath off the living area.

There were many positive comments from family members who came to visit. When we return for next years reunion, this will be my first choice.

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this villa during the week of the 4th of July, and we loved it. We enjoyed the fireworks and the view was magnificent. It is even more spacious and beautiful than the pictures show. The villa is updated, very clean, and has a great balcony space. The owners were great to work with from the initial contact throughout our stay and were quick to respond to questions we had. We have been coming to Amelia for 10 years, and we have never rented a villa where each bedroom had its own bathroom. Because we had small children, having the bedrooms on a different floor from the living quarters was ideal. The Mickey-Mouse shaped pool was a huge plus for our toddler grandchildren and is only steps from the villa. The pool area has plenty of chairs, umbrellas, and features a covered area with tables. We enjoyed the grill area beside the pool. The beach is very clean and only a short walk from the pool. We definitely recommend this villa for family vacations and can't wait to return next year. We can't say enough about this villa and owners-you will definitely get your money's worth by staying here.

Owner's Response: July 4th week at Amelia is the best week of all for family fun! After ten years of visiting the area, you certainly are qualified to evaluate the places you have stayed. I am so pleased that you enjoyed the Plantation once again and that the villa was perfect for your family needs. I appreciate your compliments - thank you for sharing your comments!

We had a wonderful week at Amelia Island. The property was clean and well maintained. It was great seeing all the wild life around the property especially the turtles. Bike riding and golf was our main activities. Jane was very helpful in answering all my questions.

Wonderful location and terrific condo

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time visiting Amelia Island, but our first non-hotel opportunity there. This condo was perfect for us and it was comfortably furnished/decorated, very clean, well equipped, and spacious. Our group consisted of 3 couples who greatly appreciated the privacy of individual baths and the rather secluded/non-commercial feel of the Amelia Plantation environment. The renting process was equally comfortable as Jane was a very pleasant responder and correspondent during the initial process, during our stay, and even after as we had some post-rental questions. I would stay again without any hesitation.

Owner's Response: So nice to know that your first experience in an Amelia Island condo was such a pleasant one! The privacy and spaciousness you mentioned make the accommodations for couples travelling together appealing and less costly than hotel rooms. I am pleased to know that the condo suited your needs. Thank you for your compliments! Jane Wells
