Description of the Fernandina Beach vacation townhouse rental
NEW UPDATES: If you've stayed with us before, or browsed our listing before, please note we have just upgraded the full-size bed in the second bedroom to a brand new queen-size bed. We've also added HD tv in the master bedroom.

Our townhome unit is the largest floor plan in the complex (at over 1,500 square feet) and located just one short block from the beach! We dare say we have the best location in the complex, with a two-story end unit that overlooks the tennis court and pool, with a park-like area just outside the front door. Sit on the oversized balcony (approximately 300 square feet!) and watch your friends or family down on the tennis courts or out by the pool. Or, you can close your eyes and lean back to enjoy the relaxing sound of the fountains in the ponds that surround the property. Magnificent oaks shade park-like areas around the property where you can throw a Frisbee, football or baseball. A large grilling area sits right next to a grassy area steps from the front door, where you can have an early evening cookout while the kids play. Then enjoy your meal on the picnic tables outside or back on the spacious deck. There's even a playground for the smaller kids just a short walk from the front door. The complex is also a great place for kids to ride bikes, as it goes in a complete circle and is a small, quiet complex.

Inside the unit, you'll enjoy over 1,500 square feet of space featuring an open floor plan and exquisite furnishings. The large master on the first floor features a vaulted ceiling and a king-size memory foam bed. The master also features a 32" flat panel television you can enjoy while having breakfast in bed. Or, exit the large sliding glass doors from the master onto the enormous deck, where you can enjoy your morning coffee. The master bathroom is divided into two sections, one with a large vanity and the other with a large shower. A huge walk-in closet adjoins the master bathroom.

The second bedroom is upstairs and features a queen-size bed and windows that offer views from two sides of the building, including a beautiful view of one of the property's many ponds complete with fountain. The bedroom is spacious enough to include a small seating area and has a large walk-in closet.

The third bedroom is great for kids or adults and features two twin beds, which can be converted to a king size bed upon request. The theme of this room is a fun, surfer style. All three bedrooms have a television with cable. There is also a crib available for use.

The large living room features a 50" flat-panel television with a DVD player, PS2 and plenty of seating for all. The fun array of colors in this room provide for the ultimate vacation atmosphere. The dining room is complete with a table that seats six but with added chairs can seat eight. The well-appointed kitchen has everything you'll need to prepare your meals and is large enough that you can invite the rest of your group to join you and pitch in! The unit also features a full-size washer and dryer, providing you all of the comforts of home.

The oversized deck has three adirondack chairs with a great view of the tennis courts, pool and one of the ponds. The other end of the deck has a table and chairs that can seat up to eight. With over 300 square feet of space and great ocean breezes, you'll spend as much time outside as you will inside!

The bright, fun island decor and open floor plan will provide a relaxing getaway for any couple, family or group!

For those who want more information about the distance from the beach, the complex is one block from the beach. That block is a short block with just two houses on each side of the road. The beach access is directly at the end of that block. We are about 100 yards inside the complex. We also provide a beach cart to help you carry your things to the beach.

If you'd like to see additional photos or reviews, please email and we can direct you to them.

Great stay

November 17, 2014

We really enjoyed our stay at your condo. Everything that we neded was there in the way of utensils , dishes and pots and pans. There was also a wide variety of spices and such that you usually forget to get at the store. We walked to the beach every evening, about 2 blocks away. The condo also has a great view of the pool and tennis courts. And the location was within walking distance to some restaurants and stores. The only downer was that to get to the condo in the complex you needed to drive over about eight spine jarring speed bumps!

Our summer at the ocean

August 15, 2011

There were 8 of us... two families (4 teenagers) and our simple goal was to get out of Colorado and Ohio and enjoy a week of fun at the ocean. We had a blast and this little house is decorated so beautifully! Plenty of space for all 8 of us. The only suggestion I would make is a new mattress for the pull out couch. Thank you to Kristi for all her efforts to accomodate us. Not sure when we'll be back, but we'll be back!!!!

Great Beach Stay!

July 15, 2011

Our family met here for a week at the beach. We found the condo exceptionally clean and ready for our stay. Though there were 8 of us (plus family dropping in from nearby areas) we found that we had plenty of room to eat, sleep and visit. We appreciated the storage chest with toys and beach chairs and electric grill. The cart made the walk to the beach a simple one even with four little ones! The deck is very spacious and affords a great view of the nearby pool and tennis courts. Kristi's condo was everything she advertised it to be and more. We came from Georgia, Colorado and California for a family getaway and it was wonderful!

Great for beach, birding & relaxation

March 22, 2011

This large 3 bedroom /2 bathroom condo was a perfect getaway. THE MOST COMFORTABLE KING SIZED BED in master. Open door and hear the waves! Giant deck for bbq-ing or relaxing. The beach is a 2 minute walk - close enough to return back to use the restroom! Walking distance from Sliders and Surf restaurants (try the Long Island Iced Tea). Perfect central location on island for dining, shopping, birding, beach. All new interior, paint, etc. Reasonably priced... I'll be returning - frequently!




Only a few complaints

February 22, 2011

Only sleeps 7, not 8. The bed in the green room is only a double, not a queen, so really only one person can sleep in it. Also, more like 3 blocks to the beach by the time you walk from the front door, out of neighborhood and across the street. Not a 1 block "stroll."

Great family getaway

August 22, 2010

We had a wonderful beach vacation here. The condo was clean and comfortable and the walk to the beach was easy, even with three small kids. The beach was beautiful and not crowded at all. We would highly recommend it to anyone considering a stay here.

Comfortable and Well Kept

August 17, 2010

My experience at this condo was nothing short of amazing. The condo itself is very well kept and the furnishings all appear new and in great shape. The condo has enough beds to sleep a large group, and is big enough for everyone to spread out during the day. The walk to the beach is no problem at all, especially with the cart that is provided. The area is very low key and there are not tons of people everywhere like at some resort cities. It has a private feel and my entire group loved it. We hope to be able to come back next season!

June 13-19 Family Vacation

June 22, 2010

My family of four just spent a wonderful week at Kristi's condo! The condo is tastefully decorated in a tranquil island theme and is spacious, while cozy and comfortable. We slept very well in the bed in the Master bedroom (firm, pillow-top mattress) and our children had no complaints about the beds upstairs. The chests and ample closet space upstairs and down enabled us to unpack, hide the suitcases and feel at home. (That's the point of renting a condo rather than staying in a hotel, right?) All of the essentials for a relaxing beach vacation have been taken care of. There is a storage chest containing beach chairs, a beach umbrella and sand toys; the owners have even provided a "cart" to wheel everything to the beach. However since the beach is only a block away we easily carried our "gear" without using the cart. Also located on the porch is an electric grill, several chairs, a large table and a couple of snack tables. The location of both the condo and the complex is perfect for beach, pool, tennis, golfing, horseback riding, close proximity to restaurants, grocery stores, shopping. The location also lends itself to a nice bike ride to Fort Clinch Park (to the north) or several other beaches to the south. If you are biking south with children we found it easier to take First Ave as far as it goes before crossing over to South Fletcher; you will only have to ride on South Fletcher for approximately a half mile before you can jump onto the off-road bike trai

Wonderful Beach Vacation!

June 12, 2010

We were so happy that we rented this condo for a fun birthday weekend with the girls. Excellent location and amenities. We enjoyded grilling steaks on the deck and dining around the wonderful dining room table. The one time it rained, we really enjoyed the large screen television! The beds were very comfortable and there was lots of space for all of us!

Great townhouse and location

May 9, 2010

We were the first family to rent this townhouse and cannot say enough good things about it. The house was very clean and had everything we needed to enjoy a week visit to the area. The kids enjoyed the tennis courts, playground, and easy access to the beach. We felt the beach was the nicest stretch on Amelia Island! The pool was not open yet, but it looked nice as well. Great hospitality from the owner as well.

Beautiful Condo

April 13, 2010

The description doesn't do the condo justice, it is beautiful inside and great location near the beach. Lots of room for everyone in a beautiful relaxing setting. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a get away with the family. Lots of things to do for everyone in the complex.
