About Laura Mademann

My husband and I grew up going to beaches on the Atlantic. When we moved to Atlanta and started a family we knew we had to find the perfect beach to bring our children to so that they could create the same memories that we cherished as kids. For us Amelia Island checks all the boxes and is the perfect family friendly place.

Laura Mademann purchased this condo in 2014

Why Laura Mademann chose North East Florida

This is truly our little piece of heaven. We love being right on the ocean with only a few steps to the beach. The townhome style allows for living on the main floor and the bedrooms upstairs. This is perfect for families with sleeping little ones or those who just enjoy to sleep in while the others are in the living area starting their day. We love the central location on the island with its close proximity to the Ritz and only a short drive to downtown Fernandina with its great restaurants and shopping. The pool at the resort is relaxing and the open grass courtyard is something unique to this property.

What makes this condo unique

We have a keyless entry into the unit. Each renter is assigned their own code for their stay so no need to deal with the hassle of coordinating check-in at a rental office, or bringing a key to and from the beach.

Perfect family beach front condo

  • 5 of 5

This was our second vacation to Amelia Island which has become our favorite beach destination, we just love it there. We chose this condo because of the beautiful beach front view, the amenities, decor and positive reviews. It did not disappoint!! We are a family of four with two active girls, we love the beach and mix it up with morning beach, afternoon pool and sunset surfing. We also like to eat out a bit while on vacation but also cook and this place was just perfect. The kitchen was fully stocked, and throughout the condo there were touches by the owners to ensure we had everything we needed. I can't say enough, this is now saved in my favorites and we are already looking at re-booking for 2017, this will be our yearly beach vaca place!

Beautiful property - complete honesty in listing

  • 5 of 5

We had a great [short] vaca here with our young adult sons (plus one girlfriend). We live in central Florida and rent condos often - usually NSB, Daytona, or Cocoa. Some owners post dated pix and don't even provide toilet paper. Not here. These owners are wonderful - nice property, all reasonable amenities plus much more. The space is nice, much more than the typical 2BR, 2BA. The two levels and extra 1/ 2 bath provide more space and privacy for everyone.

Amelia island is elegant - beautiful uncrowded beach, lots of great shopping and and eating in nearby Fernandina Beach (we loved The Patio Place (crepes) and Espana). We also spent a lot of $$$ at the Ritz - so convenient, really good food and drinks but just a bit pricey. Enjoyed the convenience of having meals in the condo as well.

I agree with other reviews that the walk to the beach may be a bit much for really little kids and lots of gear - that is because the dunes are protected, and beautiful. For us - it was fine. The pool in the community is nice, uncrowded and refreshing.

The beds were very comfortable, linens of good quality. Bathrooms clean - good water pressure and temperature. AC effective.

We'll be back - lots to do in the area and we did not have the time this trip.

What a wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

This place is perfect! Views of the beach from the master bedroom and the living room. The pool and beach are a short walk away. Property is well maintained and has everything you need for a beach trip. The flat screen TV's in both bedrooms and living room are a nice update for mid day rests when the it's time to take a break from the sun.

You're close to a harris teeter grocery store and plenty of restaurants in the nearby downtown area. The beach itself is not crowded, nice soft sand, waves aren't too rough for small children. Not really a surfing beach if that's what you're looking for but perfect for a family trip. There are also pools left at low tide so the youngest can splash around and play in the water/sand.

We will definitely plan to return to the area and this condo in particular if it's available. Highly recommend.

Great vacation place!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice clean place with several added touches from the owner. Powder room and master bath could use some updates but overall we loved it! Great location on the island! The beach is nice and quiet. We would definitely like to return!

Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

We loved the condo. Waking up each morning to see the sunrise and the beautiful beach was so enjoyable. The condo was perfect for us. It was furnished beautifully in a great location. The whole Island was easy to get around on, with no heave traffic, but several very nice places to eat. We had a blast.

Great place to stay in Amelia

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for an extended Memorial Day Weekend. The pictures accurately depict the condo and it is well supplied/stocked with everything needed for a great vacation, and also clean. We are a family of five and our kids had plenty of room in the guest bedroom- one per bed and room for our pak n play. There's a great area for storing your beach items under the stairs to the condo, which is a bonus. The view from the condo is great- unobstructed ocean view! The walk to the beach felt a bit longer than perceived- my only comment here is that there are two sets of steps on the boardwalk (as you can see in the pictures) and they are cumbersome if you have kids under 2 who can't walk themselves, and pulling a stroller or wagon is difficult. If your kids are older than that, it's not a problem!! The property area is well maintained and lots of beautiful flowers/trees/etc. We tried some of the bike paths nearby, and they were great. Even when the complex was crowded on Memorial Day, it was still quiet overall and very enjoyable. The pool area was a great place to cool off for a bit with the kids. This condo is on a very nice part of the beach that wasn't too crowded even on the busiest day.

The Sailmaker at Summer Beach is centrally located on Amelia Island making it an ideal place to vacation. We are oceanfront with only steps to the beach, a short walk to the Ritz Carlton, and a short drive to enjoy all the dining and shopping options of downtown Fernandina.
