We stayed there some during week of 4th July this year and it was wonderful and fireworks show was great. My children enjoyed the pool, ocean, and beach tremendously and we stayed in A120 which is a wonderful well decorated l bedroom with queen sleeper sofa condo on the 4th floor in A Building as there are 3 buildings and balcony view is terrific plus there is more privacy there it seemed. Having the washer/dryer available is a nice amenity too plus it has WIFI. The carriage ride downtown Centre Street is lots of fun and there are several good restaurants nearby with casual dining available. The landscaping at this condo complex is immaculate and the pools are well maintained.

The grounds are very nice, trees, parking, pool and of course the incredible beach. Inside the 2-bedroom it felt crampted generally tired. Views to the ocean are not what I expected. This is definitely an older property. Great location next to the Ritz Carlton.

My husband and I recently stayed at the Surf & Racquet Club with our 2 year old daughter. We rented the condo directly from the owner Brenda Jackson from this website http://www.vacationrentals.com/. Brenda was wonderful to deal with and the condo was exactly as described. Once I booked she sent a wonderful list of restaurants and was always available with questions. The unit we rented was a ground floor oceanfront, perfect location to the pool and ocean. The unit was clean and well stocked. The location on Amelia Island is in Summer Beach which is a secluded part of the island. The pool was never crowded and the property has 2 pools and 2 baby pools. I would highly recommend Surf & Racquet Club and Amelia Island for a vacation.

We went for a relaxing vacation and that is exactly what we got. The room was great! Beautiful view of the ocean and it was decorated so beachy. Nice to have the washer and dryer in the unit as well. People were very nice and helpful. We spent hours on the beach searching for shark teeth and I found lots. Shops were cute and food was good too. Definately go on the "On the Water Adventures" boat tours. We saw dolphins, wild horses, manatees and tons of birds. Fort Clinch was cool too. It was a very nice town and we would go back for sure!

Husband and I thoroughly enjoyed Unit A106: quiet, convenient, good layout. Enjoyed pool. Made reservations with owner, Cynthia Herrin, who supplied very simple directions to get into unit.

We visited in Sept 06, after Labor Day. Not at all crowded, very comfortable condo and GREAT views. You do have to walk around from the front of the complex to get to the beach or pool, unless you are on the ground floor. You also have a view of either south end or north end of the island, not panoramic due to the placement of buildings. But you certainly can't question the view you have - spectacular! Very updated - we were on the 4th floor and I would recommend 4th or above for a better view above the dunes. Keep this place and island your secret! Not too touristy or built up like other Florida beach towns. Took a fishing charter (2 of us and the captain) - very reasonable and he kept us out an extra hour at no additional charge. Saw bald eagles, dolphins and loads of wildlife without really even trying. Fishing is abundant and varied, with lots of great fishing spots. You will need a car, but this place has something for everyone! Never had a bad meal and great spot for daytrips up to Jekyll Island or St. Augustine.

We stay at Amelia Surf and Racquet over the Fourth of July. This is our third summer. Very relaxing, if you like to swim at pool and hang out on beach. Ft. Clinch State Park is not far away if you like a little history with your vacation. The resort is packed on the Fourth but the next day the place clears out. The only place you might feel the crowd is at the pool. There is a Harris Teeter nearby. The tennis pro, Charles, is very skilled and I'm glad I spent the money to have a private lesson with him.
