Amelia Island has been a part of my life for ten plus years. After my first visit to the island, we were hooked. My family has been visiting the island 1-3 times a year since we discovered the benefits of the island. About five years ago, we discovered the Pelicans. Why do we love the Pelicans?? The view from the condo and patio is jaw-droppingly fabulous; the pool is beachside, so you feel like you are getting to enjoy some benefits of being at the ocean while at the pool (I don't like roadside pools.); the value is fabulous for a place to stay with a kitchen and a washer/dryer in unit; the location is central to all of the various activities on the island; parking is underground and secure; and the managers (Simon and Mandy) are so helpful in helping you to have the vacation you would like. Others have complained that the managers were inaccessible. I have never found that in all of my visits. I am always able to reach them when I need them. Otherwise, they stay behind-the-scenes. Now, others have mentioned that the condos are in poor repair. Actually, I have found that since each condo is privately owned, there is some difference in upgrades between units. Mandy encourages owners to update their condo regularly, but each owner has the final say. Mandy knows each condo so well that she can help you in picking the perfect condo for your situation. (For example, you may want to be on the bottom floor; or if you have a new walker, you may want less tile and more rugs/carpet in unit; if you have kids you may want a condo that supplies a bucket of kid's toys; if you are from out-of-state, you may not want to lug your beach supplies, so you may want to rent a unit that allows you use of the condo's beach supplies. Mandy can help with all of those things...Now, if you want to stay at a resort condo and pay resort prices (and deal w more "crowds"), you should stay somewhere else. If you want a good value and a wonderful experience, call Mandy.
