About Dan Ward

This home was originally purchased to get away from a hectic environment of the big city life in California and New York. Solitude with nature are rare to find in today's 'hustle and bustle' world.

Dan Ward purchased this house in 2006

Why Dan Ward chose Northeast Florida

The home is secluded and private. Its ideal for family gatherings, a romantic retreat or to get away from a hectic life style. Rejuvenate and unwind while enjoying the island. A spa allows you to heat and massage the tensions away. Golf courses, shopping, bike trails and restaurants are all nearby. Bikers and joggers frequent the area due to minimal traffic. Fishermen have said the beach in this area provides excellent surf fishing.

What makes this house unique

This property offers a private and secluded setting. A vacation is meant to be relaxing and rejuvenation. You will achieve this experience with the serene location. Most oceanfront house are located on AIA with heavy traffic conditions. This private home is located off the main road with nearby amenities. The Omni Plantation and the Ritz Carlton are nearby with restaurants and shopping. Downtown is a few miles away. The house has a fenced in paver stone patio with spa, fire pit and Adirondack chairs to enjoy a great night listening to the ocean with a warmth of the fire which adds ambiance for a couple's private evening or a family outing. The tropical surrounding and designer interior offers a special and unique environment like none other on the island. Although there have been events accommodated in the past, we no longer allow for events such as weddings since the homeowners insurance does not permit nor allow for them.

Beautiful Beachfront Home

  • 5 of 5

This place feels like someone's home, not just a rental property - beautifully decorated.

The beach access is fantastic with great views from both decks, and the ground level patio with the fire pit and hot tub is top notch. Appreciated this home's off the beaten path location, a few blocks off the main road. Short and pretty drive to historic Fernandina Beach area and Fort Clinch. Great oceanfront golf at the nearby Omni resort. Numerous restaurants nearby (brick oven pizza takeout from Tony's was an easy option our 1st night and delicious). Hope we'll be back!

The best vacation home we have ever rented

  • 5 of 5

The best vacation home we have ever rented. This is a great home and I can recommend it with no reservations. It's clean, comfortable, well equipped, and just steps from the beach. A big plus for us was the fact that for $25 permit you can also drive on the beach with a four-wheel-drive vehicle. This enabled us to load up all of our beach gear ( Beach chairs , beach mats, two canopies, cooler, Etc) and drive them right around to the front of the house on the beach. This prevented hauling all this gear to the beach and back every day. I know how much maintenance it takes to keep up a beachfront home and this is the most well-maintained beachfront home I've ever seen, no less vacationed at. The two zone air-conditioning worked very well. Internet worked for a while. TVs and Comcast cable worked very well. Everything worked out well. I hope we can come back someday. The Punch code locks on the doors were also a big plus. You don't have to worry about losing a key, and paying a security fee if you do lose a key. He just punch in the four digit code to open and to lock the door.

Our family is leaving Pelican Landing this morning with a great amount of sadness. Having been on many fun beach vacations, we thought we knew what to expect. The atmosphere of this place changed how we will vacation in the future. And at our first opportunity we hope to return. The house is as everyone says and is as described. Two things stand out here besides the obvious beauty of the ocean and of the house itself: the peacefulness of being just far enough removed from the crowds, and of Dan's hospitality and trust of this treasure to his guests. There aren't enough words to say how much we appreciated it. As my 14 year old told me, "Huh... I haven't looked at my phone in two days." Enough said.

Wonderful family vacation house with all the expected amenities and much, much more!

  • 5 of 5

We have vacationed in Florida for several weeks in March each year for more than twenty years while I attend a medical legal seminar and have stayed in many different houses on the water and can assure you Pelican Island is by far the nicest home which accommodates at least ten adults and several children. Dan Ward is most helpful and was very responsive to a request for a Aerobed for an older grandson as well supplying a car seat and crib needed for a younger grandson. Amelia Island is a great area and the American Beach was beautiful and Only steps from the house. The hot tub and baths were super and unlike other locations in many Florida water front home had no bug issues such as noseems or mosquitoes. Sightings of various birds, dune turtles and rabbits and a beautiful sunrise were enjoyed by everyone. This house has all the extras you would expect and even an Amazon Alexa was ready to answer questions and play whatever music anyone wanted. I was ready to recommend Dan have available binoculars fir the house but of course we found Dan had them for tenants in a drawer we found the last day. My whole family can not recommend this house more strongly and we all will return again to Pelican Island in the future. Thanks for a great family vacation, Dan!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the feedback and compliments. I appreciate notes and suggestions by guests so that I may accommodate as much as possible. Although the cable offers a variety of music choices I decided to get the Amazon Alexia so that guests could enjoy their specific tastes in music as well as forecasts of the week's weather, etc. A large portion of guests come year after year and they have helped educate me on things that will help them and future guest's. Today's travelers are much different than those a generation ago. I have found they want all the comforts of home along with a few "bells and whistles". Sometimes it's the little things that count the most. A recommendation for future guests is to let me know a week in advance of any special needs. I have lived on the island for ten years and can provide suggestions. Dan

absolutely amazing

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough good things about this place and it's owner. This was our first time back to Amelia in over 10 years and our experience here was absolutely amazing. The house was more than accomodating, well stocked with linens, towels, kitchen utensils, and much more. We would definitely stay here again!

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.
