    Beautiful Oceanfront Stay

    My family spent Spring Break here in March 2020. With the Corona virus on many people's minds, we were hesitant to take our trip. We ended up being extremely pleased that we came. The convenient location was close to grocery stores as well as the town. We stocked up on food and made most meals at home - the kitchen has literally everything you can think of. We had a turkey breast to cook and there was a roaster pan AND a meat thermometer! The view was breathtaking; we enjoyed a lot of time on the big balcony. It was wonderful to have a table out there to take meals as well as Adirondacks for reading my kindle at night. We enjoyed counting tortoises from the balcony as well. The house is gorgeous and the beds were very comfortable. Top of the line Smart TVs meant that we could watch our Netflix while social distancing. We enjoyed the puzzles provided as well. The beach was clean and very close. It was a HUGE plus having toys, chairs, coolers, and Boogie Boards provided. My daughter was the envy of many other renters' children as she surfed away on a really nice boogie board. Very wide sandbars right out front; she could go out really far and still only be knee deep in the ocean. Brad was very kind in answering questions, providing recommendations, and checking in on us during our stay. We could not have been more pleased with our trip. We hope to come back!

    Great place to stay

    This is a great place to stay. Brad and Aimee are five star hosts. They help you before and during your stay. Brad sent information about bike rental before we arrived. He also checked in to see if we had gotten in. When I said we were running late due to flight issues, he checked in later. If you need anything while staying there, they are very helpful. The condo is in a great spot, beautifully decorated and has everything you might need for your stay. We loved sitting on the patio with a bottle of wine and enjoying the view. We will definitely be back. P.S. I had a meeting at the Ritz Carlton and was closer to the meeting rooms than people actually staying in the hotel. Also, the gopher tortoises are a lot of fun to watch.

    Best Vacation Ever

    This condo is everything listed in the VRBO listing, everything earlier reviewers have posted, and then some. My wife and I are in our 70’s and have taken lots and lots of trips. Without going in to details, EVERYTHING about this property is first class.-literally everything- cleanliness, furniture, kitchen items, mattresses, and on and on. “Icing on the cake” is that the property owners are unusually thorough and cordial in their instructions for arrival and departure and all communications. Made you feel very secure that everything would go well and it did. Amelia Island is a beautiful island with lots of great restaurants. Nothing “tacky” about the island. Only bad thing was having to leave. Exceptional experience in every way !

    Great home away from home!

    This Oceanfront condo has everything a family needs to get away and relax. The bedrooms are comfortable, the bathrooms are modern, and the kitchen made preparing food at home an easy option. Brad and Aimee were remarkable hosts and our family would recommend their condo to anyone looking to enjoy Amelia Island - an amazing getaway with plenty to see and do.
