Many guest have said it's so nice to come to the beach and not have to bring their own chairs, beach towels, sand toys, and boogie boards for the kids. Our condo offers all that and lots more. We are within walking distance to beach and several places to eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner. We pride ourselves on keeping our place up to date and spotless. Guest need all the comforts of home without the hassles....Cozy and Affordable offer just that! Hope to see you soon!
This was a nicely appointed condo with an easy walk to the beach and convenient location for access to Fernandino Beach and Amelia Island. The rooms were comfortable and clean. The first floor location was nice for access, and everything was neat and in order. The owner was always available via email messaging if we had questions. Many interesting places to visit nearby and restaurants and shops galore in quaint Fernandino. We recommend the boat tour to Cumberland as a wonderful time for kids and adults. Additionally, there's the 3 mile Egans Creek Greenway right across the street from the complex which is a wonderful natural park for walking, running, and cycling. Bicycle rentals very close as well. We recommend this place highly.
As owners at Amelia Landings, we are always very appreciative of guest take time to write a review. We accept that the fact that we might need to improve on something from time to time and are always grateful to hear when things are good. When our guest walk in the door, we want them to have the feeling of "Yes! This is nice!" We do this by hiring a terrific cleaning team, attending to details including updating items when needed, providing simple things like baggies, food storage containers, laundry detergent and an assortment of other conveniences. We also provide beach chairs, boggie boards, and a beach pull cart. Our location is awesome! We are 2 blocks from the beach, Egan's Creek Greenway is right across the street, restaurants are within walking distance of the condo, and Historic Downtown Fernandina Beach is only 3 miles away! Being on the first floor is also an asset since we don't elevators. When we remodeled, we sprayed insulation between the floors to help deflect sound. It doesn't cut out everything but is does really help. We would love to have you stay with us! Please feel free to email, call or text for questions or interest in booking a trip. I am fully set-up to book through the website.
This little condo was in tip top shape and although it was a walk to the beach, at least it was under a canopy of trees for most of the way. My missus and I enjoyed it overall. The beach was not crowded at all and the pub and grill next to it was of good quality.
Thank you for staying with us and I'm glad our condo met your needs. We work diligently at maintaining our rental property and providing lots of extras for our guest. It is a bit of a walk to the beach. If guest have children, we always recommend they drive because the kids get tired and need alot of stuff! We love Slider's as well. It's a great beachfront restaurant and you can go in your swim suit! If you are interested in renting from us, we are happy to answer all your questions and offer recommendations.
The condo was perfect for our needs. Just a short walk to the beach and a big screened in back porch. Really happy with the amenities and that all the towels, soap and beach toys were available for our use. Highly recommend this place.
We our always delighted when everything goes right for our guest. In the years we have offered our condo as a vacation rental, guest rave about their fantastic visit! Our guest tell us they enjoy the short walk to the beach, love the large screened in back porch, the amenities we offer, and being close to everything. Amelia Landings is a well maintained property surrounded by large oaks and shrubs, but close to the beach. Our pool is one a the largest on the island and there are several picnic spots to cookout. We work hard to maintain our condo and always follow up on guest suggestions and or complaints.
This vacation rental was the absolute worst. The ceilings are so thin that we could hear the people above us ALL NIGHT LONG!!! We all received no sleep any of the nights that we were there. The bathtub in the hallway bathroom would not drain and we had to purchase Draino to get the water to go down. There was a gigantic bug in the master bedroom drawer. The TV's in BOTH bedrooms were entirely too small to actually enjoy on vacation. One of the TV cannot be controlled with a remote. We wrote to the owner to advise that we had to leave a day early because we were exhausted, she did not have the courtesy to respond. The pillows in both bedrooms had blood stains on them. The sheets and the linens were completely full of pills and dingy. The place is in dire need of an update. It was a terrible expense for a terrible stay. There was nothing beachy about this beach rental.
We are sorry for our guest leaving a day early. Our guest did contact me during her stay to let me know that she was having a hard time sleeping because of the music coming from the 2nd floor unit. I spoke directly to the people above us that quite time began at 10pm and they did turn the music down. I wrote to our guest twice during the week about the noise from the 2nd floor which was the only complaint our guest voiced at that time. In the main room there is a wall mounted 48" smart TV with an HDMI cable for anyone who wants to connect directly with their computer, although, we do provide secure WiFi as well. The guest bedroom 13" TV is on the "to be replaced list." The master bedroom is 19" and that is really about the right size for the room. I was not aware that bathroom drain was clogged or I would have that fixed immediately. It is true that the pillows and sheets are due to be replaced. We replace them every year after the summer rental season ends. We do work diligently to keep our unit as updated as possible and to respond to situations quickly when they come up.
Rented this condo based on the good reviews from tripadvisor. Was very disappointed. Was notified by owner on Friday, check in was Sat., that the ceiling had leak and looked terrible. Ask it was safe but once arrived was black mold in the bathroom ceiling. Owner stated they could not repair for several weeks. Unsure why not???? Owner finally sent someone over that afternoon, they cut the ceiling out and put up plastic. There was also a large brown stain on ceiling in the master bath. Handles came of the bathtub. Unsure if the condo was ever cleaned since there was opened leftover food in the pantry and refrigerator. Also, found clothes in the bathroom drawers from prior renters. Not beachy at all. In dire need of update and good cleaning. The pullout sofa was very old and unable to sleep on. Luckily had blow up mattress for small children. Would not stay there again.
We are sorry for the inconveniences our guest experienced during their stay. Unfortunately for everyone, it was once of those times when so many things went wrong. The good news is we have a brand new sofa sleeper and love seat, along with wood floors that gives our place a great update! It is true that the unit above us had a leak which stained the guest bathroom. We had it looked by someone who felt it would dry out, but within days mold began to grow. My husband and I were on our family vacation during this time and were out of the country. This made cell phone use tricky. We were able to get a family friend who happens to be a retired contractor to come over and cut out the damaged area and replace the drywall. The shower handle did come off in the guest bathroom as well. The good news is our friend fixed the shower the same day he installed the ceiling drywall. Summer is a busy rental season and it is true, our cleaners forgot to throw away some of the food our other guest left in the condo. We do work hard to provide a quality environment for our quest. We hope that readers will understand we did our best to correct problems.
