About This Listing
Our impeccably appointed 2 bedroom 2 bath newly remodeled villa is centrally located on the island and within walking distance of numerous restaurants, bars, beach/surf shops, a salon & spa, specialty shops and of course the spectacular Amelia Beach.
Our condo was completely remodeled from sub-floor to ceiling in early 2013. Even the things you don't see like the HVAC system and hot water heater are over-sized and new. You will not find a nicer 2 bedroom, 2 full bath condo so close to the beach anywhere near this price, so come and enjoy a fantastic vacation in an impeccably appointed recently remodeled villa at an amazing destination.
Our villa is a bit over 800 square feet with an open floor plan connecting the kitchen, dining and living areas. 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, so our place is not considered handicap accessible. Amelia Landings is pet-free community so no pets are allowed on the premises. Smoking is not allowed indoors.
Everything in this condo is new as of April-May 2013. This includes the floating wood and tile floors with ample area rugs, the tiled master bath and walk-in shower with bench seat, the vanities, toilets & fixtures in the bathrooms and the lighting throughout with fans in living room, bedrooms and screened in balcony. The kitchen now has spectacular all solid wood shaker style cabinets and all new appliances including a Samsung bottom freezer/refrigerator with ice-maker, an LG glass top range with coil-less oven, a GE over-range microwave, a Moen sink and faucet, a Bosch stainless steel dishwasher and counter tops.

Interaction with Guests
I live approximately a mile away right here on Amelia Island. I appreciate a quick text, email or call letting me know you have arrived and everything is as (or better than) you expected. The keypad entry lock is programed for each guest and therefore does not require any key pickup. I appreciate meeting guests if the occasion arrises. It is of course at your discretion.
Amelia Landings is nestled in a secluded, serene southern live oak-lined setting centrally located on the Island and a short walk down a private path to the spectacular Amelia Beach. The complex is a quiet family oriented well maintained community.
There are 5 wonderful Florida State Parks within 10 miles, Fort Clinch, Amelia Island, Big Talbot, Little Talbot and Fort George/Kingsley Plantation. There are several golf courses in every price range and difficulty on or near the island including a great miniature golf place just down the street for the entire family.

The historic downtown Fernandina Beach offers spectacular dining, shopping, entertainment and art galleries.
Amelia Island is consistently rated in the top 10 island vacation destinations in the US. TripAdvisor’s 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.”
The Amelia Landings condominium complex is nestled in an impeccably maintained southern live-oak stand a block from the famous Amelia Beach. You can easily walk not only to the beach but numerous other places to eat, drink and shop.
Walkable local businesses include La Mancha Authentic Spanish Cuisine (rated #1 on the island by TripAdvisor, Yelp and UrbanSpoon spring 2014), Sliders Seaside Grill, Cedar River Seafood, DeNucci's Soft Serve and Dairy Queen.

Two new single speed cruisers will provide you access to a leisurely-paced bike ride on enough trails and paths to give you a change of scenery each day. The island provides a number of options from rugged trails winding past century-old, moss-laden live oaks and natural waterways to smooth scenic coastal paths.
There are 5 wonderful Florida State Parks within 10 miles, Fort Clinch, Amelia Island, Big Talbot, Little Talbot and Fort George/Kingsley Plantation.

Scotts condo was a wonderful place to stay for vacation. It was completely furnished with everything we needed including some extras that we weren't expecting like boogie boards, skim boards, and an umbrella for the beach. Everything was very very clean and there was plenty of activities to do inside including some toys for our children on the one day it rained. Scotts condo is very reasonably priced considering you get a two bedroom two bath place to stay that is similarly priced to the hotels in the area. The condo is completely updated and a very contemporary but cozy relaxing retreat. The pool area is right next to the condo which is a very short walk and was never busy in fact we had the pool to ourselves many afternoons. My family and I will definitely consider staying at Scott's condo in the future. It was our first experience in Amelia Island and we definitely have to recommend Atlantic seafood market which is a small seafood shop right next to the Amelia River where you can get fresh seafood which we cooked back at Scott's condo where he had all the utensils and even a steamer to steam the shrimp. It felt just like home. Thank you scott for providing a wonderful place for my family to stay during our 2014 vacation.
We had a wonderful stay at this condo. It was lovely and fully equipped with everything one might need on a beach vacation. The nearby beach is beautiful and the pool is very nice. Scott was an extremely helpful and responsive host. We would definitely stay at this condo again on our next trip to the area.

About the Host, Scott
After vacationing on Amelia Island numerous times we decided to retire here. I am sure you will love vacationing here as well. This is our beach R & R Villa. We absolutely love Amelia Island and our home here. I am an avid outdoors person and find the beaches and local parks perfect. If you happen to enjoy birding, biking, surfing or sea kayaking, being at the beach or swimming in the pool we have something in common. Although I only caddy now, golfing is one of my favorite low key social events. There is everything from the world famous TPC at Sawgrass (50 minutes) to fantastic local courses of every class. My wife is partial to the antiques, local artisans & craftsmen and fine food. I surely can't complain.
I happen to be a retired engineer who specialized in experimental fluid dynamics. My fluid of choice was blood and stroke research my concentration. You can throw in a bit of atmospheric science and of course geeky computer stuff as well. I taught students how to hook things up to a computer besides printers and cell phones and hopefully do a bit of meaningful exploration of the world around them.
We generally travel without an agenda if at all possible and try to experience a more local or laid back feeling. I depend on feedback from my friends and web sites like Urban Spoon, Yelp, TripAdvisor or gogobot to guide my path.
We happen to walk to DeNucci's often. It feels like I've worked off a few of the delicious calories I consume on the way to and fro. It's a nice step up from the Dairy Queen.
I only recommend this for convenience. The have an reasonable Wednesday evening buffet.
DQ is on the way to & from the beach. The young folk in my life love it. You know what to expect. Enjoy.
This a fantastic locally owned surf shop. If you are interested in the real deal including certified instructors there is no better place! The offer a fantastic selection of products and lessons.
I happen to be partial to a game of pool every now and then. It is a biker bar not suitable for anyone under 21 (no food). It is often loud and smoky so go early if your like me.
These folks offer a nice selection of soft surf board, sea kayaks and bikes for rent as well as accessories for rent or purchase. Their equipment is well maintained and the staff easy to deal with.
Sliders has live music many evening and great outdoor balcony. This is a beach bar with a slightly upscale seafood oriented menu.
There is nothing more satisfying than an original piece of art. Living in France and in Fernandina Beach, provides him with ample opportunity to paint the charming street and boat scenes.
I happen to appreciate the wholesome breads sweetened with honey instead of sugar. An added bonus for a bakery trip is a scrumptious pastry and cup of decent coffee. We are weekly visitors.
Op's is one of the few non-chain pizza places on the Island. They make a wonderful pie and have a super salad bar. My wife loves a made when ordered cannoli to take home...
This a great place to enjoy a burger or other not-so-fast food outdoors. You will find a bit of local seafood on the menu and that is a plus.
This is my first choice for pizza in Fernandina. There are only a few non-chain pizza places and Moon River Pizza is the best (IMO). Their take-out their pies with a few ingredients are the awesome.
The Waterwheel Art Gallery opened it's doors in 1983 and it has since become a much loved local icon. The Waterwheel features a variety of local artwork and superior framing services.
This is my favorite fine dinning experience on the Island. The chef loves creating complex flavors to tantalize your palate. He is often at the Saturday morning farmers market sampling some creation.
This is must see for families or just those who would like catch a bit of history (hourly cannon firing on weekend) or even a great stroll on a fantastic beach and pier. The best sharks teeth hunting!
There are no better burgers on the Island. The hours are odd so plan accordingly. They close at 2:30 M-F, 1 on Saturday and are closed on Sunday. The Saturday local shrimp platters are spectacular.
Well I have to suggest their pecan rolls. They are wonderfully gooey and delicious. When I'm up for a morning sweet tooth splurge I make the trip up 8th St. Enjoy.
This place is real gem. If possible take a guided tour to get a glimpse at the rich and dynamic history of our little island.
This is one of favorite dining haunts. Make a reservation if you want to eat inside it is a small venue. Expect a wonderful dinner for 2 in the $50 range. Their shrimp-n-grits is one of the few I love
This is a fascinating place to visit on Amelia Island. The neighborhood has fallen into disrepair. If you have an inkling for a glimpse of history that will soon vanish I highly recommend a visit.
Absolutely incredible Spanish and Portuguese cuisine. Super atmosphere. One of the best special occasion places on the island.
Excellent food with attentive service and an evolving menu. A local favorite.
My wife and I have returned several time and were just as pleased each visit. The sandwiches were fresh and nicely complex. The last time I enjoyed a cup of cold Thai Watermelon soup, it was fantastic
The food was tasty and more than filling. We had the pulled pork and a Half-n-Half. It went down with enthusiasm but was a bit heavy for our taste. If you're hungry stop in the early afternoon...
It is a treat to just bask in the smells and watch a batch of fudge being made on the large marble slabs. If you're lucky you'll a free sample at the end of the process. The ice cream is plenty tasty
I enjoy the micro-brew beers made on site at the cafe. The food on the other hand is just fine not exceptional. There is little doubt that something will strike your fancy.
This is by far the absolute best local fish market on the Island. You will have to get there reasonably early as the catch is local and fresh and often goes quick!
One of several fine art galleries in the historic downtown section just off Centre St.
Check it out if your into Art Galleries. Look for the Blue Door Artists entrance.
If you at all interested in kayaking there is a nice variety of choices from guided tours, drop-off and pickup, to sea kayaking. Have fun!
Paintings, photography, reproductions, pottery, stained glass
We did the Eco Shrimping Tour with a 2 youngsters (11). It was fantastic. I highly recommend it the kids absolutely loved it. The did a drag net catch and hands on exploration of the catch.
The wood fired thin crust artisan pizzas are a wonderful taste sensation. These are not your typical pizzeria pies. The signature pizzas are thin crust and loaded with complex flavors.
My wife loves this place... need I say more. It sports a wide variety of consignment item from antiques to crafts.
No surprises here, just good ol' fantastic ice cream and a wonderful assortment of additions. It's a nice treat on a hot summer day or just about any day if you're like me.
This is a wonderful place for a Mediterranean breakfast or lunch. I regularly stop in for a specialty deli salad to take home for dinner. The atmosphere is great, the outdoor seating comfortable.
Although I don't fish much I do enjoy the beauty of this unspoiled southern tip of Amelia Island. For horseback tour reservations, contact Kelly Seahorse (phone number hidden) 491-5166.
Amelia Island as a wonderful string of Florida State Parks offering fantastic sandy beaches stretching toward the horizon. Big Talbot has a shaded picnic area at the north end which I especially like.
We didn't take any guided tours just walked the grounds and read the info boards. It was well worth the short stop. This is a gripping glimpse into the majesty and horror of a slave enabled lifestyle.
Little Talbot Island has a wonderful campsite on the inner coastal waterway and amazing beaches and picnic facilities on the Atlantic Ocean.
Singleton's is much better than any fast-food served in a pleasantly trashy decor. The blackened catch of the day sandwich (Mahi-mahi) was great. Don't expect awesome seafood served yuppie style.
This place screams of fresh seafood. It is a dockside fish market with a modest up-charge for preparing your food. Call ahead to make sure the restaurant is open - they remodeled (July Opening?).
