Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Ocean Place is located on beautiful Amelia Island which boasts some of the most beautiful beaches and golf courses in Florida. Ocean Place at Summer Beach is one of the most beautiful properties on the island and is located in the exclusive gated community of Summer Beach Resort right next door to the world-renowned Ritz Carlton Amelia Island Hotel and Spa. At the Ritz, you may enjoy fine dining, spa treatments, tennis, golf and shopping.

This beautiful two bedroom, two bath, 5th floor condominium is located directly on the beach and provides spectacular views and incredible sunrises. This condominium recently had a total renovation. Our condo truly does feel like a second home rather than 'rental condo', because we want our guest to feel like they are at home. Sleep with the doors open and listen to the crashing waves and see the moon from your bed. Then arise in the morning to the most beautiful sunrise over the Atlantic Ocean. You can sit out on the deck, and while having your morning coffee, watch the dolphins and sea gulls having their morning breakfast behind the shrimp boats.

Downtown in Fernandina, you will find the oldest seaport in the U.S. which has a rich heritage and has been under eight different flags. My family loves to stroll around downtown, especially at night among the lighted trees and visit the quaint shops and wonderful restaurants. Especially fun, is a horse and buggy ride tour of historic Fernandina. Additionally, there are jet skis, para-sails, and inland/offshore fishing charters available for hire. A short ferry ride can take you to beautiful Cumberland Island, the only national sea shore on the East Coast. We love knowing that out guests are here making memories to last a lifetime.

About Jan Barry

My husband's family has been vacationing on Amelia Island for about 40 years. After we got married and had children we began bringing our own family here on vacation. My children never wanted to go anywhere else. For several years we spent the entire month of July here. Our family's most treasured memories are of this Island. We decided that we wanted to own our own little piece of Heaven on Amelia Island, so we began looking around and finally settled on Ocean Place. We now have three grown boys, ages 25, 23, and 20 and they still love going to Amelia Island to vacation, even after all of these years. There really is something for all ages to enjoy. We hope that you will love our home away from home as much as we do and we look forward to sharing it with you.

Jan Barry purchased this condo in 1998

Why Jan Barry chose Amelia Island

We absolutely loved the location next to the Ritz because we have three boys, who all love to golf and the golf course is located right next door. We love the bike/walking paths located throughout Summer Beach where our children like to ride their bikes and skateboards. There is always someone available for the children to play with, however, the beaches are not crowded at all.

What makes this condo unique

Our unit is located on the fifth floor in the middle of the building which offers complete unobstructed views of the ocean in all directions for as far as the eye can see. There are two pools at Ocean Place to enjoy so you don't feel as though you have to fight for a spot at the pool. The condominium community is gated which gives us peace of mind about our security. We have free WI-FI service so you can connect to the outside world IF YOU CHOOSE TO, three 46' HDTV televisions with cable and DVR service, with 300 channels included, and free long distance phone service to anywhere in the USA and Canada.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Once again, our month-long stay at the Barry's Ocean Place beach home was an exceptionally pleasant experience. This was the second time we've spent a winter vacation here, and everything was just perfect, as we expected it would be. Jan has provided everything her guests could possibly need in making this a comfortable and cozy place. It feels like a home away from home. The view from the balcony is spectacular, and the weather allowed for many relaxing hours enjoying watching the surf roll in -- as well as quite a few surfers riding the waves. We are definitely planning another return visit, hopefully next December-January.

The perfect home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many condos and beach houses over our 25 years of marriage but this was our favorite by far!! Jan has thought of everything! The condo is beautiful in every way. The kitchen literally was stocked with anything a vacation cook might need. I forgot the boogie boards and Jan even had a "beach closet" that had everything we needed! The view is amazing and the proximity to all the sites is perfect. We loved Timoti's in Fernandina and we also enjoyed Natural Slice and miniature golf in the Plantation. Amelia Island is just gorgeous. Too many great things to say about the Berry's beach condo! Loved it!

Perfect beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a place to stay on Amelia Island, this is it!! I had a work conference at the Ritz, and the walk from the condo to the Ritz could not have been easier or more convenient. The condo is absolutely beautiful (the pictures do not do it justice), with a breathtaking view of the ocean from the very generously sized balcony. Every detail of this condo is well-thought out, with luxury linens, comfortable beds, and well appointed kitchen and bathrooms. The pool is convenient, and it is a very short walk to the beautiful beach. We had a great time walking the beach, hunting for shells, and exploring the wonderful downtown area. A grocery store is conveniently located about 5 minutes from the condo. Jan was a great host, keeping in communication during this hurricane season, sending a very nice welcome package prior to our arrival, and even leaving a personalized note and lovely gift upon arrival. Thank you, Jan, for sharing your condo with us!

Another great stay at our "home away from home"!

  • 5 of 5

We've been vacationing on Amelia Island for several years, Ocean Place always being our first choice for location, location, location. We rented Jan's beach home on our last trip, so it was a no-brainer to rent from her again when it came to planning this year's trip. We just (reluctantly) returned from a two week stay, and I can assure you we will only rent from Jan on our next trips to AI. She's the most gracious host, the condo is exceptionally beautiful, fully equipped with everything you need to cook, launder, swim, play and, most importantly, enjoy a carefree vacation.

Owner's Response: Thank you! That's our goal, to make it feel more like a home away from home rather than a "rental unit". You're so welcome. Thank you again and please come back soon.
