Our condo, located in Amelia Island Plantation, is an 1800 sq. ft. single level end unit, with 3 large bedrooms each with their own bathroom and sleeps 6. The elevator comes to the second floor and the condo is 8 steps up from the elevator. There is a large patio with fantastic views of the Atlantic Ocean and beach. The kitchen is adequately equipped and spacious. The condo comes with 2 flat screen TVs, HD cable service, DVD player, Wi-Fi and a phone. Washer and dryer is also located in the unit. Located close to the heated pool and BBQ area and a stone's throw to the beach.
I currently live in Flowery Branch, GA which is located about 50 miles north of Atlanta with my wife, Cynthia. We have been married about 30 years and met at University of North Florida. We consider Jacksonville our home town although we have lived in many cities around this great country. Our Shipwatch condo is returning home for us and a chance to be close to family and friends who are dear to us. I hope you enjoy our condo as much as my family and I enjoy it.
This is a beautiful condo! It is right on the beach and in a really nice complex with a beautiful pool. The beach was never over crowded and was a short walk. The condo itself was clean and comfortable with lovely furnishings. The view from the balcony was awesome! Three couples stayed there comfortably and the owner suggested we move the two twin beds together and that worked fine for the third couple. Two of the three bedrooms are suites and the third bedroom is directly across the hall from the third bathroom! It is a great layout. There were two dining room tables (one with six chairs and one with four)and six chairs on the balcony so all of us could sit comfortably. There were tons of beach chairs and an umbrella in the closet. Also the Omni Hotel (ask for beach chair rental extension) down the beach will deliver chairs and umbrellas for you for a small fee. You just tell them you are in the Ship Watch Villas and they drove down right away. The owner was lovely to talk to and very kind and responsive and she made check in super easy and there is a guarded gate for safety. The only thing that didn't go smoothly for us was running out of household supplies such as toilet paper, garbage bags, and paper towels. For example, in each of the three bathrooms there was only one roll and not a new roll of paper and only one additional kitchen garbage bag so staying for four nights with six of us we needed to purchase some supplies at the nearby grocery store. We never contacted the owner since we needed to go to the store anyway and the price was so great on the condo we didn't mind picking up those items. We stay in VRBOs quite often and many do not provide a great deal of supplies like this so I wasn't surprised. I have no doubt if we had contacted the owner she would have been helpful! For future renters perhaps stopping by the store on your way would save you time and you will want to go to the store and get supplies/food anyway because once you get to this beautiful condo you will not want to leave! So stock up on beer and snacks and settle in for a fabulous getaway! We would love to stay again and miss the beach and wonderful condo already!
We absolutely loved your condo. Very clean, spacious, and equipped with everything you would ever need. We would highly recommend this condo to anyone. We can't wait to go back next year! We loved it and our grandchildren loved it. Cynthia was so pleasant and kind to work with. Sincerely jane Kennedy
We love the size of this condo, and it's all on one level; no stair climbing except the 8 steps right off the elevator. We are over 70, and it fits us perfectly. Having three bedrooms accommodated us and our daughter and family beautifully. The furnishings are comfortable and plentiful. There are some beautiful pieces; all well done. The condo was clean and well-stocked with everything a family would need at the beach. We think the pool area is one of the best of all the condo complexes. The ocean view from the condo is perfect. We have also stayed at Wind Song, Lagoon Villas, Sandcastles, Captains Court and Club Villas. But Ship Watch is our favorite.
This is our eighth visit to Amelia since moving back to Northern California many years ago. Our whole family feels as if this were our second home, and it's always a pleasure to return to the beauty and friendliness of this great community. If you haven't been here before, you will really enjoy the variety of activities, history of the area, and the wonderful downtown and dock area.
Thank you, Paul and Cynthia Love, for sharing your place with us. We'll be back!

The pictures don't do it justice! You can actually hear the ocean from the balcony. I spent hours sitting in the shade, watching and listening to the water, sipping wine and reading. Fantastic way to completely relax.
Not long after being in the condo, my son said, "This feels like home." And he was right. This condo is very well appointed, but still has the feel and comfort of a family home. The lay out was nice and spaceous, everything was clean, and the view is wonderful! We loved how easy it was to get to the beach and the pool! We mostly ate in, but picked up food from Falcon's Nest one night, and we loved how close and easy it was to get to things on the resort property. Paul and Cynthia were quick to respond to any questions I had prior to our stay. We definitely hope to return!
We were looking for a seaside location to meet up with the family before graduation events at the University of Florida and Amelia Island was the perfect spot. The beautiful Shipwatch condominium met all the needs for our family of 6 adults. We look forward to a return visit!
The beach is quiet and secluded. The pool is on the property. The Jacksonville Zoo is a wonderful zoo including many monkeys, rhinos, giraffes you can feed,amazing birds, reptiles, snakes and African wildlife only 20 minutes away.
