About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 6 Sleeps

A romantic get away or a fishermans paradise, you can have it both

ways here. As the moon rises over the ocean you can take your

special someone for a walk on the 890 foot private pier. Just sit

and watch the waves roll in while you enjoy each other, or grab the

fishing pole and come try your luck with the great fishing.

You can sit on your balcony, in this 5th floor unit, and watch the

sun rise over the ocean. You can see for long distances up and down

the beach and see the dolphins at play or the shrimp boats going out

for the day. Very few people are on the beach, sometimes there's no

one for as far as you look both ways.(This can be anytime of day.)

The family at the beach, pool or pier, just walk out on the balcony

and you have them all in view. Maybe they are at the tennis court,

that's out the front door.

The master bedroom has a king size bed and is on the ocean side so

at night you can raise the windows and let the ocean lull you to

sleep. The great room has sliding glass doors to the balcony. The

sofa & love seat both let out into beds. HBO is available on the

36' TV & the TV in the master bedroom. The 2nd bedroom has a queen

size bed and a twin bed. The sofa & love seat turn into a queen &

twin bed.

When you go down to the beach be sure to take something to put the

sharks teeth in, yes I said sharks teeth. On Amelia Island they

dredge the St. Marys River and it releases fossils & sharks teeth

that are distributed down the beach. One of my favorite pastimes

(as well as many other islanders) is looking for teeth & fossils.

It's a lot of fun once you get the hang of it. Or you can drive down

to the end of the beach and go horse back riding on the beach.

Tired of the beach, the historic downtown area is awesome. Great

shopping, restraunts, boat rides, trips to Cumberland Island, tours,

gambling boats, Charter fishing boats,and so much more. Or bring

your own boat they have space at the marina. The Jacksonville Flea

Market is open on the weekends. And don't forget GOLF. There are

several challenging golf courses on Amelia Island with all the

courses just minutes away. Walk across the street to restraunts and

shopping. Or grill out here for dinner or for your tailgate party

for the Georgia Flordia football game.

The kitchen & greatroom were recently remodled with new custom

cabinets, marble counter tops, all new appliances, ceramic tile

floors and everything updated. Washer and dryer are in the unit.

Everything is there to make your stay confortble and relaxing.

Once you go to the condo on Amelia and enjoy the quite, laid back

feeling of the island you'll want to come back again and again.

VERY nice and we felt safe.

  • 5 of 5

The complex was great and DJ's condo was fabulous. The condo (550) had everything we needed--did not expect wash/dry equipment. It appeared to be recently renovated. It was unique to go to sleep listening to the waves!

Great family beach condo

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 6. One grandparent, 2 parents and 3 kids. This unit was a perfect match. It was very comfortable and inviting. Beds were quite comfortable, and my daughter liked the pull out couch bed. We love the view from the balcony and spent evening hours Enjoying the breeze. My kids love the pool and it was a cool refreshing spot after spending the morning fishing. We all enjoyed the fishing pier and were able to catch some redfish and black drum. We would stay again in this unit.

Perfect place for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Amelia By the Sea is a perfect place for our annual family vacation! We wouldn't want to go anywhere else and don't need to! There is something for everyone in our family. The private pier allows daddy to fish all day (and night!) while my toddler and I play on the beach in the cool shade for hours right below him without getting sunburned! The boardwalk provides convenient and easy access from the condo/pool to the beach, and every balcony has a beach view! Amelia Island is such a beautiful and quite place, and we enjoy staying here every summer. The property is very well maintained and clean as well. We look forward to our stay every year!

Owner's Response: Hello Mandy, Thank you for taking the time to review your stay. I cannot believe that this is the 5th year in a row that you have stayed with us. It is a great place for a family vacation. I'm glad that you are able to play with your toddler on the beach all day in the shade of the pier while Dad gets to fish on top at the deep end. It is sooooo nice when you don't have to worry about sunburn as much on the little one. I know the older ones are out in the ocean boogie boarding, riding the waves. Looking forward to you being our guest again next year. DJ

Romantic Getaway for me & my honey

I decided to surprise the wife with a little trip to the beach for our anniversary. Needless to say she was delighted. DJ arranged to have champagne on ice & flowers ready on our arrival. The place was beautiful, the moon was full & we were in love! Could not have been better. Thank you, thank you, thank you for helping me with my surprise & exceeding my expectations. WE WILL BE BACK!!!!!

Amelia by the sea was awesome

  • 5 of 5

The unit was clean and very comfortable. We loved waking up to the beautiful sunrises. We had a great time and had no worries. I would highly recommend this for your next vacation. They have tennis courts and a very nice pool. So you wouldn't even have to ever leave the complex.
