Newly updated and luxuriously appointed throughout. Enjoy the comfortable but refined decor in every room and high end kitchen of this spacious oceanfront condominium. This is the nicest place to stay, and literally right next door to The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island!

Discover paradise on Amelia Island, it is the perfect spot for families or couples and one of the most popular beaches on the East Coast. Located in an exclusive community on the unspoiled barrier island, this condo strikes the perfect balance between upscale luxury and carefree relaxation. For the ninth-consecutive year, Amelia Island is one of the top 10 U.S. island destinations and the number one Florida island destination in the Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards. Amelia Island was also voted one of the USA Today Readers' Choice 10 Best U.S. Islands. You will find these accolades are well deserved.

This is not an investor property rented by a management company, this is our 2nd home. We think you’ll agree the difference is noticeable in the quality of furnishings and the care we take maintaining the unit and making it comfortable and inviting. This condo is a Prestige Property Winner.

Newly decorated with updated furnishings, fixtures and art, the tile floors and earth tones invoke the surrounding sand and dunes. Blues and greens from the ocean accent the pleasing color palette. This unit has all the luxuries and comforts of home. Floor-to-ceiling glass doors welcome you to your huge private 4th floor oceanfront balcony. Enjoy your morning coffee outside watching dolphins and a passing shrimp boat. Afternoon shade and sea breezes make the oceanfront balcony an inviting spot all day long. This floor plan has the only private balcony in Ocean Place.

There are two bedrooms and two full bathrooms in this spacious and comfortable condo. The master bedroom has a king size bed with a feather mattress topper and quality linens. The bedroom faces the ocean and opens to the private balcony. The second bedroom has a queen and a twin bed. Both bathrooms are recently remodeled. The bathrooms are clean, bright, and luxurious..

The large kitchen is fully appointed with top of the line appliances, not cheap 'rental unit' equipment. There is a tile back splash and under-cabinet lighting that brightly illuminates the Corian solid surface counter tops. Everything is here for you to make a picnic lunch for the beach (including a picnic basket), or for a gourmet cook to prepare a fine meal. The kitchen opens across a breakfast bar to the dining room which boasts a large table and seating for six. Enjoy conversation or watch TV on the new 60" HDTV in the spacious living room. The seating is comfortable and the view of the waves unsurpassed.

The Ritz-Carlton property surrounds this condo. The hotel building is next door, just 100 footsteps away. The Ritz-Carlton has used our condo many times for their guests when they needed additional accommodations. As a guest at our condo you have access to the luxuries and services of the AAA Five Diamond Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island. Enjoy the world class spa or a meal at one of the four restaurants ranging from the five diamond Salt to more casual and kid-friendly settings. The Spa at The Ritz-Carlton has been voted one of the Best Hotel Spas in the 10 Best Readers Choice by USA Today. The four bar lounges are available before or after dinner as well.

The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island is unique in North America as the only hotel and restaurant combination to gain the AAA 5 Diamond rating for both the hotel and its fine dining restaurant, Salt. The 5-Diamond status continues today. We encourage our guests to walk over and visit this incredible neighbor.

About Aimee Nitz

We are a family of four with 2 daughters and we love spending time together at the beach. We live in Atlanta and love our trips to 'The Island.' We hope you will enjoy the condo as much as we do!

Why Aimee Nitz chose Amelia Island

We love being right next door to the Ritz-Carlton and walking over to enjoy the amenities. We have been visiting and vacationing on Amelia Island for years. When we decided to buy a vacation home we knew this was the best spot in Florida and along the east coast. We love the restaurants and shops plus all the outdoor activities in the area. We also enjoy a quieter day reading a book while sitting on the beach or our private balcony.

What makes this condo unique

We've worked hard to make our condo comfortable for our guests and ourselves. This is an upscale condominium development and we think we have created a feeling of relaxed luxury in our unit.

The building is located next door to The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island and this provides easy access to their amenities. This just enhances the already great experience you'll have at our condo. We love to walk over in the evening for dinner. Years ago we were married at The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island and its fun to take our daughters to the spot where we had the ceremony.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Happy New Year!! Amelia Island is such a wonderful place to spend New Years and your condo is so special! Fireworks at the Ritz right in front!!! Wow! Yeah! We really appreciated all of the elegant touches and had some very memorable meals - esp. New Years Eve with local shrimp. You are truly lucky to have such a lovely second home. Thank you for sharing it.



Have a wonderful 2013!

Wonderful Time in this Beautiful Setting

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time visiting Amelia Island for our annual girls trip. Aimee and Brad's condo provided a clean, beautiful, and convenient home base to enjoy this amazing place. The condo kitchen was well-equipped and the furnishings were super comfortable but the main event was the ocean view. It was amazing from the inside but even better from the large terrace where there is a constant breeze.

Aimee and Brad were great hosts with lots of communication before and throughout the stay. Thier restaurant recommendations led us to some incredible meals both in town and nearby. We also took full advantage of the great location of this condo- right next to the Ritz Carlton- where fine dining was just down a scenic path.

I would definitely recommend this beautiful condo to anyone visiting Amelia Island- we can hardly wait to go back!

Owner's Response: It sounds like you hit many of the highlights. We've worked hard to make our vacation home very nice but also comfortable, it's good to know you felt we hit that mark. We're also glad you enjoyed the Ritz-Carlton and nearby restaurants, too. Being right next door to the Ritz is a nice bonus for 18 Ocean Place. We look forward to adding you to our group of repeat guests! Best regards, Brad and Aimee

A great place in a great location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were very pleased with our experience during a much needed getaway beach vacation for 5 days / 4 nights. The condo is in a great location and exactly as the pictures and descriptions state; just bring your luggage and the condo will take care of the rest.

There are no stones unturned, from the kitchen appliances, utensils, etc. to make virtually every meal, to all of the essentials for a beach experience (towels, chairs, umbrellas, etc.). As other reviews state, the Ritz is right next door and a quick 5 minute walk via walkways or along the beach itself.

We took an Uber up to downtown Fernandina each night for dinner, but all other meals were accommodated either via the cooking at condo or the Ritz. Such a relaxing, perfect place to visit and we hope to be back soon.

Owner's Response: We're glad you enjoyed the condo so much! We've worked hard to try to think of everything our guests will need and want, its good to know you think we did. We agree that being right next to the Ritz is a fantastic bonus. Thanks! Aimee and Brad

Gorgeous Amelia Island Beach View

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous view, beautiful beach and dunes, very well-appointed condo -- clean, great master bathroom, comfortable and stylish furnishings. Loved that it was such an easy walk to the restaurants at the next door Ritz-Carlton. This was my first VRBO experience and Brad and Aimee made the whole process very easy -- great directions and very prompt responses to any and all of my questions. Great place for a very relaxing vacation.

Great Location. Very Attentive Owners.

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely condo. The balcony overlooking the dunes (fun to watch the turtles) and beach is the perfect spot to dine or relax with a book. Very comfortable beds and the recently renovated bathrooms are lovely. The owners are amazingly attentive and have given thought to your every need. We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend this unit to others.

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

The condo is lovely and well appointed. The building is in a great location with access to the bars, restaurants and shops in the Ritz Carlton right next door. When the sounds of the crashing waves from the unit call you to the beach, a 5 minute walk across the protected dunes has your toes in the sand. The owners went above and beyond to communicate before and after arrival. If you want hassle-free relaxation in an idyllic setting, this is your place!

Fabulous view, Awesome hosts, Perfect Condo!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently visited Amelia Island to celebrate our anniversary. Brad and Aimee's condo was the perfect location. We had lovely views of the ocean from the living room, bedroom, and balcony. And the condo itself was clean and so inviting and beautiful. While we never needed anything because the place is so well taken care of, they reached out to us several times just to see and make sure all was well. We LOVED this condo and will stay here again!
