Older condo in need of refurbishing
When we walked into the condo is smelled like a basement. We were greeted by a large dead roach on the kitchen floor. We had to wash everything in the kitchen before we could us them There was mold in the bathroom. The curtains in living dining room had spots on them and looked dirty. There were also spots on the ceiling. The outside did have a nice view of the pool but the patio had cheap furniture that was not clean and the gas grill was too nasty to be usable. There were several rat traps outside. It was difficult for older people to walk up a steep hill to get to the beach. We never got a good look at the ocean. I called the rental company who said there was nothing that they do and told me that they were closing. I emailed the owner who did promptly called back but he had an excuse for every complaint that I made. I asked him if we could be moved to a more suitable condo. He said that this is the only condo that he owned there. I asked about a refund and we would look for better place to spend our much needed vacation. He stated that VRBO had the money and he could not do anything about it. He said that he lived 2000 miles away and could do nothing about it. I told him that it seemed like I was not going to get any help from him. I have photos of all of the complaints that I have mentioned. I will attempt to attach these to this review. If you notice most of the positive posts were made years ago. I should have just thrown our money in the Atlantic. Butch Swinney

Better than advertised!
This property was very nice and met our needs when we were in a pinch with a screw up by another property management company. We were so grateful that this property was available. We have stayed at Sailmaker and nearby a number of times and we love this resort! The property is convenient to the parking lot and the pool, and like all Sailmaker units, it has a very private beach access. Neither the beach nor the pool was crowded during our stay, which was a relief as we are in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic. The most important thing to know is that the pics on Flipkey are outdated. The kitchen, patio, and bathrooms have been updated! This was quite a pleasant surprise. The owner was very communicative and kind. We have no complaints about our interactions with him. The property was adequate and had pretty much everything we needed. It was clean and well-equipped. Our biggest complaint was that when we got there, it was full of mosquitoes! Our guess is that the cleaning service must have left all the doors open while they cleaned. Luckily, the mosquitoes were sluggish and not hungry and we were able to squish most of them. By the second night, they were nearly gone. It was quite an annoyance the first night to have mosquitoes buzzing in our ears, though. It was also a little annoying to have to visit the property management office to get our check-in information. This seemed a little antiquated, especially since the door lock was a coded lock and we didn't need a key. It seems like the property management company could've sent the code to us in an email. (Nobody in the office was wearing a mask during the pandemic, which was doubly annoying. This has nothing to do with the property owner except for his choice of property management companies.) Overall, this was a nice property. It is well-priced and the owner is great. We would definitely stay again (and would bring our bug zapper if we did).

Clean family friendly beach condo
The location of this rental is absolutely perfect-steps away from a newly renovated pool and patio and walkway to Summer Beach. The unit was clean and comfortably slept our family of 4 with room for more! It had all of the dishes and appliances we needed for our stay including a grill. We took advantage of the island's many activities including golfing, kayaking, bike riding on the many bike paths, dining and shopping. Easy drive to downtown. Great unit for a beach town for your entire family!

When we arrived, it was very hard to get in the room. We went to the lockbox of the managing rental and we received the instructions. Even though it was Sunday we were told that we could come at any time to check in as there wasn’t anyone before us. The code didn’t work and multiple calls were made to rental agency who kept insisting that we couldn’t check in until 4. This was around noon when we arrived. Finally we got in. The condo was lovely. But we had multiple problems getting on the internet and with the TV in the main living room. We called the rental agency again. A very nice lady named Carrie came and after multiple try’s with various attempts. We switched to another villa in the same complex. The walk to the beach was a little longer than we anticipated but overall after the first day we settled in and enjoyed the rest of our vacay.

Exceeded all of our expectations.
503 Sailmaker was exactly what we had hoped for. We enjoyed it so much that we stayed for over two months. The condo was clean, nicely appointed and quite spacious with a well-equipped kitchen and comfortable furnishings. The ground floor location was located adjacent to the pool and steps from the beach. The outdoor patio was our favorite spot. Amelia Island has a gorgeous beach and the town of Fernandina Beach is perfectly charming with great shops and restaurants. We can't wait to return!

Perfect
We enjoyed our stay. The kitchen was well equipped. We really like that the pool was steps away from this unit. The unit was clean and well maintanced.

Thanks Andrea. We are glad you enjoyed your stay as well. The pool makes it very convenient, and we work closely with housekeeping to keep it maintained. Just wondering, though, did you really mean to rate your "Perfect" stay just a one star? Perhaps a mistake, no?

Home away from home at the beach!
We had a very enjoyable stay at this condo. Just a short walk out the back door to the pool. Although the walk to the beach is a little far and cumbersome for older family members, the beach was very kid friendly and clean. We had a few repair issues which were promptly taken care of by the owner. We arrived after dark and had a little problem locating the condo. The map we were supplied by the realestate management office was not very detailed in locating the property. We were not supplied with the gate code for entry nor were we given the door codes for the restrooms by the pool.
