About MIke Bannister

We live in Boston and have family on Amelia Island where we hope to call home someday.

MIke Bannister purchased this condo in 2010

Why MIke Bannister chose Amelia Island

We love the beach and the access to a historic and vibrant downtown. There is so much that Amelia Island offers. This condo is a short 2 mile walk to the Ritz and is right across the street from the Surf Restaurant. Beach access is typical walk over dunes directly from the buildings side door. Out door shower and hose to rinse off is right by the entrance to the beach/building

What makes this condo unique

Direct access to the beach, close to downtown and shopping, views of the Ocean from the master bedroom, family room and kitchen. Surfing on the beach behind Ketch is one of the best on the island.

Loved looking out onto the ocean. Fantastic view.

Condo needs work. We arrived on a Sunday, before our arrival I tried on several occasions to get in touch with the property Manager to ask about check in. We get there office is closed keys are not under the door mat. A worker that lived on the premises got a hold of the manager who calls me finally to inform us the condo hasn't been cleaned yet but it will be ready at 3. Ok that's fine we can run to the store to get groceries. We come back after 3 the cleaning lady is still there. She says she's not done yet because of the dryer taking way to long to dry but we can go ahead and bring out stuff in. Mind you it's been raining all day so it's not like we can go walk the beach. In the midst of us bringing our things in I receive a very rude call from the manager telling us under no uncertain terms can she allow us in the condo until the cleaning lady has finished. Okay fine we'll just drive around some more with 3 crabby kids to wait until they say we can get into the condo. Once the manager text us we go back to the condo to find the dryer still going with a load of towels. It took 2 hours to dry anything. This was annoying when you're washing clothes on a daily basis. The week we were there it rained off and on the whole time. On Wednesday it rained hard, hard enough to have water running down the wall in the girls room. When I took a picture and sent it to the owner he was aware it leaks, the roof is supposed to be repaired but until then he really can't do any repairs. Mike the owner was easy to work with but can't say the same about the property Manager. Would we stay here again depends on if they can get some one in the office that actually returns calls. We tried calling 3 weeks before our arrival date that gave her plenty of time to return our calls. I called once a week left messages. She never bothered to return one phone call at all.

Owner's Response: First, I am sorry you were visiting when there were was non stop rain for your whole stay. I am also sorry the cleaning team could not get you in earlier than the 4 pm check-in time. Also, check-ins on Sundays can be harder as we normally do Saturday to Saturday rentals, We try to accommodate guests whenever we can. I do appreciate the heads up on the dryer and the slight leak in the back bedroom. The dryer vent was indeed clogged with lint and has been fixed. The leak was due to the damaged roof from a storm last fall and the inundation of rain while you were there. The roof was replaced the last week of June and the back bedroom far wall will be fixed in July. I do hope we can make it to you on a future stay with a free night stay added to your next trip to Ketchcourtyard if you select my unit. Mike

Cozy & Neighborly Old School Florida

  • 5 of 5

One of the reasons I love this area is because it is NOT showy at all. It's managed to avoid the McMansions that plague other coastal areas and remain true to old-school roots. This building is a very standard, 70's looking block on the beach, with nothing much to offer from the outside. However, the condo has been updated all through the inside while still maintaining a cozy vibe. The rooms are filled with personal touches, lots of clean linens, bright colors, and a user-friendly kitchen. We spent a lot of time on the balcony, watching the ocean and beachwalkers. We met a few other vacationers who come regularly, and everyone was very laid back, relaxed, and welcoming. This is the kind of condo that encourages everyone to just relax. Would def. recommend.

Exceeded expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful condo with great balcony and views of the ocean! This top floor property exceeded our expectations and has everything you need for home away from home feeling! Very comfortable. Owner and on-site manager were super! Golfed, biked, enjoyed The Salty Pelican in historic Fernandina, La Mancha restaurant, Fort Clinch, beautiful sunrises, sunsets and the sound of the surf each day. We will be back to this lovely condo and highly recommend it to friends looking to mix relaxation with a little adventure. Can't wait till we can come back!!

This condo is a wonderful place to stay!

Wonderful ocean view-- beautiful sunrises and sunsets.

The condo is very clean, roomy and comfortable. We felt at home right away!

Great location on the island-- right across the street from "The Surf" restaurant and not far away from anything else.

The owner was very friendly and helpful.

You won't have any trouble relaxing and getting in vacation mode here!

We have visited twice this year and will absolutely be back soon!
