Fall Beach Trip
We loved the property and the location. Our condo was very nice and the view was incredible. The only problem we had was there was a roach on the kitchen counter on our last day.
Wonderful week at the beach. Lots of sun, sand and laughs. Can’t wait till next year. Would recommend better sheets, detail clean in kitchen and floors.
We will be back!
Such a perfect place to stay! Easy access to the beach and pool are! Property is clean and well maintained! Smelled great when we walked in and all facilities were in excellent shape! Cannot wait to return to Amelia Island and the sandcastles!
Enjoyed our stay
I’ll just get to the point. The good: room was well appointed and quiet. The bad: the walk to the beach is very long. When you get off the elevator to go to beach there’s three steps up to the first floor. Then there’s four steps down to the walkway where you pass the pool area to get to the wooden walkway . When you get to the wooden walkway you go down 4-5 steps. You walk a bit then another four steps. Walk again and another four steps to finally land on the sand. If you don’t mind walking and a lot of stairs while dragging your beach chairs, etc to the beach then you’ll love this place. The room was very nice. My only thing was the curtains are sheer so no sleeping in allowed unless you bring eye masks. We did enjoy our stay overall and the area is beautiful.
This condo is very nice. Location is great. View is awesome! Hope to be back!
This Condo was perfect for us. We fell asleep each night listening to the ocean waves. The view from the deck outside the bedroom was spectacular. Clean and well equipped with all the necessities. The owner informed us that we would need our own beach towels, which we brought, but a previous guest had left two beach chairs, an umbrella, sand toys, and a boogie board. I'm 60 but still rode that board one afternoon with perfect waves MANY times. Little sore the next day but worth it. Miles of beach to walk. I love that Amelia allows leashed dogs on the beach, made many friends!
The Omni is next door and there and you can walk forever through shaded paths when you've had enough sun on the beach.
The building is undergoing renovations but the noise was minimal and we were at the beach or elsewhere most of the time anyway. An earlier review said the elevator wasn't working when they were there. It's fixed and worked great. They had a couple of luggage carts to haul our stuff from the car to the unit. It was so convenient to have a trash chute and free laundry down the hall-next time I'll only bring a carry on bag-don't need a big suitcase to hold a weeks worth of clothes and beach towels.
The negatives: The pool is not heated-Brrr. I also recommended that you buy a case of bottled water. The tap water is cloudy and off tasting out of the tap. They have been doing construction and I wonder if any water lines were damaged? I'm letting the owner know about that and a few minor maintenance issues he might not be aware of if he's not there often.
We explored much of this amazingly natural island and hope to come back next year and stay at Sandcastles again
Condo is located at Sandcastles building, which is about 200 yards up the beach from the Omni Amelia Island Resort hotel. It is inside of the Amelia Island Plantation
