Why John Buchanan chose North East Florida

We brought this property into our family as an intentionally low key 'escape' from the hectic business world. As the island has grown, the property has remained extremely well kept and peaceful which is exactly our intention.

What makes this villa unique

Easy access to the whole island & surrounding areas while enjoying the peace & quiet of the property; a home-away-from-home. The villa is thoughtful & well-cared for, perfect as your vacation home base.

Our intention in choosing this property was to keep it well maintained & very low key; we were & continue to be successful. Years ago our island neighbors were pickup trucks driving on the beach. This has evolved to where our neighbor is a Ritz Carlton 2 doors down; Walmart is now on the island as well as over 100 restaurants however the Surf and Racquet Club remains quiet and peaceful while providing easy access to every amenity on the island.

The absolute best place for a couple to unwind

  • 5 of 5

This was our third time renting #476107 at Amelia Island. The owner, John B is very helpful when your ready to book this rental. The condo is on the fourth floor and directly overlooks the ocean. We have spent many relaxing hours just sipping wine and watching the surf. The beds are comfortable and the kitchen is well appointed. One of the best rentals we have had.

Amelia Island Rocks!

  • 5 of 5

Nicely appointed condo & tastefully decorated with gorgeous panoramic views of the ocean. My wife and I have vacationed on Amelia Island many times over the years, and in condos at the Surf & Racket Club in particular. This condo is a standout in all the right ways! The kitchen is very open to the dining/living room areas, the bathroom has just been renovated with the addition of an over-sized shower with rain head suitable for two. Two flat screen TVs with DVD players in both the living room & bedroom. All essential odds & ends for a fantastic time are provided as well, less food & beverages. Twin queen beds were super comfy & sliding door to the patio slid with the greatest of ease. Will be returning for sure!

Our first visit to Amelia Island

  • 4 of 5

The condo was beautifully decorated and the kitchen was great - it had everything we needed. The beds were comfortable and that means a lot to two people with back issues. I did have to change out the pillow as it was too hard for me but found a softer one in the closet. Although I can deal with a small bedroom, the blinds gave us a little problem (the slats would come off if you got too close) so we just decided not to go out the bedroom to the porch. We had to figure out the faucet in the shower but we got there! The view was phenomenal and we enjoyed our coffee in the mornings, wine in the evenings on the porch. It was nice to have the two types of chairs available. Unfortunately we had to cut our trip short due to a family emergency. Loved the area, loved all the greenery - we will definitely return and would want this condo!

Owner's Response: Hi Wendy, thank you very much for your review! Great feedback on the blind slats. I am not exactly certain what you mean however I will look into it. As for the tub facet, yes, you are correct, it is a bit tricky. I am going to rebuild the whole bathroom in November which will include a tiled shower and all new fixtures. Very pleased that you enjoyed the island & the villa & again, very much appreciate your comments. Best regards, John 9/14/2014

Great Stay in a Fabulous Condo

  • 5 of 5

This condo is BEAUTIFUL! Many condos that I've rented in the past felt stiff and uninviting. This apartment is warm and welcoming. In particular, the beds, sheets, and towels are all extremely cozy, maybe even considered luxurious in the rental world. The decor is tasteful and beachy - exactly what we were looking for! As mentioned in a previous review, the owner is very responsive. He clearly cares about both his property, and more importantly, about the satisfaction of his renters. I would absolutely stay here again and will recommend it to any friends looking for a relaxing ocean-front getaway!
