Stay during Concours week

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in this condo, appreciating the great views and nice amenities. We had group of four and we had plenty of room and privacy. We ate in a lot to save on expenses and the kitchen layout, appliances, and assorted kitchen wear was great. Convenient to have the Surf Restaurant across the street for good food and entertainment if you want to go out. Great fishing pier and beach access! The owner is great and always willing to step in to help if any issues arise.

Labor Day Week

  • 5 of 5

We arrived just a few hours before Hurricane Hermine. Some high winds and a few hours without power but other than that a great time here. This condo is fabulous. Well stocked, exceptionally clean and the perfect view of the pier. Terry, (owner) was extremely nice and very thoughtful and stopped by for a quick visit to check on us. I left a pair of my husbands CROCS and Terry shipped them to us. Fishing was good and the weather was just right. Loved our week here and really did not want to leave. Will certainly be renting again. Thanks, Terry.

All we were looking for in our getaway

  • 5 of 5

What a delightful getaway we had with our family in this roomy, clean condo. The owner was amazing to communicate with us, making the trip all the better. The view was outstanding for the full moon rising that we enjoyed while there. The bed were all so comfortable, linens clean and fresh, kitchen well stocked with everything we needed even down to the salt that we forgot to pack. Being coffee drinkers we were also delighted with the great coffee maker as well! Our time on the beach was so much better with the pier acting as our sun umbrella. We certainly did not want to leave when check out time rolled around. Thanks again for the personal care you take with your renters.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Owner was amazing and easy to communicate promptly. The clean, updated condo was comfortable and very well stocked with starter supplies. We have been vacationing in Fernandina annually for about 45 years. We have rented homes, motel rooms, and other condos in 4 different complexes. We loved our stay in 220 Amelia by the Sea. It was perfect for my husband and me, our 2 adult daughters and 2 grandchildren. Our only regret is that our son-in-law had to stay home at the last minute and couldn't enjoy the beautiful beach and amazing local restaurants with us. We will definitely return to this delightful condo on the dunes.

Fantastic Property

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time for our family/friend vacation in March! We've never been to Fernandina Beach and we weren't disappointed! It was spring break and we didn't want to be involved with the crazy spring break parties that can happen along the coasts of Florida. Our young boys definitely didn't need to see that! We were very pleased with this sleepy little town that was super family friendly. The beaches are beautiful and not packed with people. Tons of shells to find and the sand is perfectly soft and almost white. The condo was perfect for our needs with 4 adults and 3 boys all fitting nicely. Plenty of storage room and the views are to die for! It's so great having the long pier just for residents and guests of Amelia by the Sea. The kitchen is well stocked and we had everything we needed for our 5 day trip. Terry is fantastic to work with and he even stopped by on our last day to meet us. I would absolutely recommend this property as well as the area!

Great Escape from Goliath

  • 5 of 5

This was an unexpected treat we encountered while escaping a major winter storm while on vacation at Christmas time. This condo was extremely comfortable; the beds, the furniture, the operation of the showers, the kitchen, the view, the veranda. All very satisfactory. The possibility of a return visit is high. The owner/manager was very accommodating and concerned for our satisfaction. Overall, a great addition to our vacation. Very happy to have experienced Amelia Island.
