About the property

A gated resort filled with ammenities, recreation, and relaxation!

Imagine yourself relaxing in a Sandcastle penthouse nestled between the ocean dunes and a beautiful Amelia Island oak canopy located within the Amelia Island Plantation.

As you enter into the comfort of this inviting vacation get away, you are immediately drawn to the expanding ocean view which can be appreciated from a balcony that spans the entire width of the villa. You can view the beautiful Atlantic Ocean from the plush comfort of the king size bed. Enjoy the sunrises and watch the dolphin playing just beyond the sight and sound of ocean waves.

Just steps from your door, await the soft, sandy beaches, a refreshing swimming pool, as well as nature paths for hiking and biking. Just steps south of the Sandcastles is a boardwalk that meanders through the plantations Sunken Forest, which provides various vantage points for viewing wildlife and picture taking of the beaches. Also located within the plantation are salt marshes which are great for kayaking, parks with picnic tables and grills to facilitate your vacation pleasure.

After a day of play, there are local shops and dining for all tastes or you may want to consider a massage at the spa within the resort.

Regardless of season, this Sandcastle Villa is a welcomed retreat, only minutes away from Historic Fernandina, which offers additional dining, shopping, and recreational venues.

We understand that sleeping in a comfortable bed is very important. The king size bed has a new Serta Perfect Sleeper mattress; Not too hard or too soft, enveloped with Egyptian cotton sheets. We feel this combination will provide a restful sleep, allowing you to awaken refreshed.

Our goal is to help you create beautiful memories that last a lifetime.

For our business visitors:

If you are attending a conference at the Omni Resort, we are only steps away from the Conference Center. You will find our accommodations to be very conducive to your business needs.

About Tannya Wilson

Married for more than 35 years and lifetime residents of the Nassau County area.

Tannya Wilson purchased this condo in 2016

Why Tannya Wilson chose Amelia Island

We have always enjoyed coastal living and the emotions the atmosphere evokes within. Occasionally we are afforded the opportunity to step away from our home, which is only minutes away, to take advantage of this beautiful piece of paradise. This villa is located within the gated community of Amelia Island Plantation, which has many amenities of which to partake.

What makes this condo unique

The moment we stepped through the door of this apartment, we were immediately beckoned by the balcony which promised a breathtaking view of the ocean. Just as we reached the balcony, it's as if someone had cued a pod of dolphin right in front of us.

A lovely, tidy and very comfortable place to visit

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I look out our city windows now still hoping to see the view from this attractive unit in the Amelia Island Plantation. The balcony provides an outstanding ocean vista and Tannya has thought of everything to make a beach visit delightful. Having beach chairs and umbrella available really helps folks like us since we fly into Jacksonville and would find it hard to check that kind of luggage! We would highly recommend this property and the host and hostess that thoughtfully provide the comfort. Make sure to get into Fernandina...the restaurant scene is loads of fun.

Great relaxing condo with an incredible view

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Amelia Island staying at your condo, the views in person of the Atlantic were better than the pictures. Tannya and Mark go to great lengths to make your stay a pleasant one, it is much appreciated!

Immaculate beachfront condo perfect for two adults

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay in Tannya and Mark's beautiful condo. It was ridiculously clean and well-kept, spacious and tastefully decorated. The enormous patio overlooking the beach was what sold us on selecting this condo and we were not disappointed. Comfy chairs were perfect for sipping wine outside after our day on the beach. The king-sized bed was heaven.

The Sandcastle's property is located within the Omni Plantations Resort. We were able to walk to restaurants and the little market for provisions. If you're looking for a quiet couple's retreat, be forewarned--there are lots of families with kids at the resort for vacation, which probably isn't a problem when school is in session. The condo is an oasis of quiet, however.

The one tiny negative is that the unit is located close to the building's elevators, which can be heard within the condo, but we grew used to the noise pretty quickly and at night, leaving the fan on in the bedroom while we slept solved that problem.

If we decide to return to Amelia Island, we will not hesitate to book again with Tannya and Mark--they supplied all the information needed to make our trip seamless, and the condo itself was perfect.

Owner's Response: Thank you Kathleen for your review. Our condo is slated for a renovation later this year when the building closes to install a new and hopefully, quieter elevator. We would love for you to pay us a visit once this is done.

Wonderful place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

We really loved the room, and how beautiful and quiet the property is. Close proximity to great restaurants is a big plus. Bar Zin, Cucina South and Gilbert's were phenomenal. And the chocolate chip cookies were a nice bonus. We will be back!

Excellent Oceanfront Property

  • 5 of 5

Tannya & Mark are welcoming owners that go out of their way to make you feel at home. The condo is oceanfront with an expansive balcony and just a quick shuttle ride to the Omni Hotel. We felt safe and there are lots of eating options nearby. We highly recommend this property.
