Beautiful Home and great location on the Beach!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not do this home justice. It is very tastefully decorated! The layout of the home is great for families and you cannot beat the location on the beach. We had a great time. Thank you Dan for sharing your home! The Stewarts and Priestleys

Spring Break

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Amelia Island and we totally lucked out on finding this great home. Not only was the house itself awesome the location was perfection. The beach was large and mostly empty. Dan Ward was extremely easy to work with and we enjoyed every minute of our stay.

Above expectations

  • 5 of 5

I knew from the owner's photos on VRBO that the property was attractive and updated, but on arrival I was surprised by the attention to detail. It reinforced our choice of this home for our month-long January stay. There is good light from every angle, both from inside and out. Views of the dunes and the ocean are spectacular. The artwork is lovely and much enhanced by spot lighting. Appliances are new and function well. Dishes, cookware, and kitchen utensils exceeded my expectations, a rare thing in rental property. Owner was easily available to anwer the few questions we had. Great house on an interesting stretch of history-rich American Beach, which, like a lot of prime beachfront, will probably change soon.

Not your avarage beach house

  • 5 of 5

If you love the beach; and peace and quiet; and high-end furnishings; and quality amenities; and beautiful interior design; you can find it all at this beautiful home on the beach. The view is fantastic, the location is perfect, the hot tub is over the top! This place is really too good for the rental market but it's available for rent! It feels like a real home where someone has paid attention to detail and made sure that everything is just right for the occupants. It also feels brand new. I fully intend to rent it every time I return to Amelia Island. Hopefully, it will be available!

Beautiful vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

Pelican Landing really is a paradise. The house is spectactuar and very well appointed. Dan has thought of everything and clearly cares for his home and the guests who stay there. The ocean and sunrise views from the two decks can’t be beat. The beach over the natural dune is amazing. We picked a wonderful quiet week in the fall. The summer beach goers were long gone, as were the Georgia-Florida fans. Only the sun and warm temperatures remained. We will definitely be back.

The October issue of Conde Travel Magazine ranked Amelia Island as one of the top ten destinations for islands in the United States. This article states, 'Whether it's the seemly endless green space or the unbelievable hospitable locals, readers agree that this Florida island is a beautiful, history-filled family location.'

Travel and Leisure Magazine ranked Amelia Island #3 as America's Most Romantic Destination. They state, 'Reader's love this barrier island town most for its parks and quaint historic downtown'.

Every year the Ritz of Amelia Island hosts the Concours d' Elegance which is the largest car show in the eastern United States.

The 12 mile by two mile island offers numerous golf courses, horseback riding on the beach, kayaking along with trails for jogging, running and biking.

The island is one of the oldest settled sites in America and offers town and ghost tours. The oldest bar in Florida, the Palace Saloon, offers evening entertainment along with numerous other bars, such as Amelia Tavern, and several restaurants ranging from waterfront fine dining, to French, Italian, Asian and Mexican restaurants. There are many seafood restaurants on the oceanfront to enjoy the locals catch of the day.

Nearby are several restaurants, the Salt (located at the Ritz), Bar Zin, Cucina South, Verandah, PLAE, Baxter's and Parkway Grill are all located in under a mile away. A personal favorite is David's downtown. It has a cosmopolitan atmosphere with a friendly service-oriented staff and a large menu of gourmet foods ranging from surf to turf.
