Come escape to our sanctuary on Amelia Island. It's all about comfort, affordability and all the little details needed to realize that. Yes that includes everything you would expect at a friend’s house from bikes to spices. Show up with some comfort food and drinks. All the rest is taken care of. Stroll to the beach, plan your adventures and relax.

You can expect plenty of extras that no place else will provide from olive oil & spices to free beach cruisers (single speed bikes). Grab some shrimp cocktail, a few cold drinks and show up. It will be spotless, the beds comfortable, the linens luxurious, DVDs & book numerous, fast, free & secure internet & Netflix, and sitting under a fan on the balcony a relaxing perfection. Our slice of paradise on Amelia Island was lovingly remodeled from sub-floor to ceiling in early 2013. Everything is in pristine condition.
We live right here on the island and will personally make sure everything is ready for your arrival. If there is anything amiss I’ll take care of it quickly. There will be plenty of dishwasher and laundry soap, paper towels, napkins, basic kitchen supplies and coffee & tea. Before strolling to the beach you can load up the beach dolly with towels, blankets, umbrella, chairs, cooler and picnic supplies. It would be a bit much to list everything so please ask if you have any questions.

The rich history and natural beauty of Amelia Island begs of you to indulge in the creation of memories that will last a lifetime. This is why we manifested this get-away. The miles of pristine beaches, spectacular parks, clear, calm Atlantic waters and quaint charm has lured generations of travelers to Amelia Island. Our family is no exception.

Amelia Landings is a short 10 minute stroll down a private path to 1st Ave and a public access to the wonderful sandy island beaches. Although we set the villa up as a retreat for our family (married children and seasoned parents) and friends to escape to many families with youngsters, groups of golfers and friends getting away for a long weekend have found it to be perfect as well.

Our villa is a bit over 800 square feet with an open floor plan connecting the kitchen, dining and living areas. (Check out the floor plan in the pictures.) It is on the second floor of a three-story building closest to the pool, tennis courts and picnic/grill area. Unfortunately, there is not an elevator in the building, (it is NOT handicap accessible). Amelia Landings is a pet-free community so no pets are allowed on the premises. We have a strict No Smoking policy (severe allergies…). There is ample parking.

We replaced even the stuff you don't see like the HVAC system and hot water heater. You won’t run out of hot water, be hot in the summer or cold in the winter. As for the stuff you do see only the drywall, molding and doors were not replaced. Yup that means soft floating wood floors, ample area rugs, tiled master bath and walk-in shower with bench seat, the vanities, toilets & fixtures , the lighting throughout with ceiling fans in the living room, bedrooms and screened in balcony. The kitchen has spectacular all solid wood shaker style cabinets and all new high end appliances including a Samsung bottom freezer/refrigerator with ice-maker, an LG glass top range with coil-less oven, a GE over-range microwave, and a super quiet Bosch stainless steel dishwasher. The kitchen is fully stocked including everything you would expect like a coffee maker (with coffee and filters), blender, basic cooking spices & supplies, Oneida RevereWear copper-clad stainless steel pots & pans and of course dishes, cups, glasses, wine glasses, flatware, cooking, baking and storage accessories. The living room has an inviting Italian leather Natuzzi couch and 2 plush chairs to relax in while reading or watching the new LG HD flat screen TV. There is basic cable service with Blu-ray disc players (living room & master bed room) which each have internet connectivity for access to a FREE Netflix account. The high speed internet is upgraded to provide Xfinity performance class connectivity both wired and via secure wireless. We have a great collection of books, DVD’s, and CD's.

Amelia Island is consistently rated in the top 10 island vacation destinations and was a US.Travelers Choice 2013 Winner (#9), “Amelia Island loves a (family-friendly) party! The small Sea Island is particularly well known for two annual festivals: the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance and the Isle of Eight Flags Shrimp Festival. But there’s plenty to do year-round. Hit the beach for some water sports, explore the island on horseback, take in a show at a community theater or just wander around the charming historic district. The Amelia Island Museum of History offers educational walking tours, including a spooky Ghost Tour that will give you delicious chills.” The Family Vacation Critic (#8), “Nestled off the coast of northeastern Florida, just over the border from Georgia, [Amelia Island] is the last of the southern barrier islands that are made up of pristine, dune-filled beaches. Four major state parks and a national park are within reach of this quiet, preserved stretch of land where hiking, biking, horseback riding and camping helps your family escape our technology-filled world. There's history here, as well, with Fort Clinch reminding of Florida's place in the Civil and Spanish American Wars. Moss-draped, centuries-old oaks pave the way into Fernandina Beach, a historic town filled with boutiques and homes. Amelia Island has a mild climate throughout most of the year, growing hot and humid in the summer months, which makes ideal weather for canoeing, kayaking and sailing.”
