Only one word to describe our stay at VillaAmelia - 'Perfect'! Great accommodation and sensational view. Joan & Joe were fantastic hosts - great communication and very pro-active and thoughtful throughout our stay. Could not have been better!!

Where do I begin?! Our family takes many AirBnB vacations and this was by far THE best! Joan and Joe are very kind and accommodating and their condo is GORGEOUS! Everything is top of the line, the decor is beautiful, and the view is to die for! The condo itself is in a great area, the pool is very accessible, and the beach is only steps away. Downtown is about a 10 minute drive and there are many boutiques, bars, and some great restaurants. This was our family’s first vacation to Amelia Island and we cannot wait to make it an annual summer tradition. Joan & Joe’s condo is a 10/10 and would absolutely stay here again. To those looking to book, you won’t regret it!

Joan and Joe are great hosts. Joan made check in so simple and convenient. She explained everything .She answered every question within minutes. The condo is absolutely beautiful and immaculate. They have a wonderful housekeeper, nothing was out if place or in need of cleaning. As soon as you open the door, you will feel welcomed and right at home. The condo has everything you need and more. They have thought of everything and want you to feel welcome.The condo is so close to the elevators and trash chute making coming and going and checking out very easy. Beach access is very close and convenient. The view is magnificent. The beds are comfortable and the bedding is high end. All of the furniture is so comfortable, indoor and outdoor. We ate our dinner routaide one evening and played a game. There is a basket with games and a deck of cards in the living room. We enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back.

We enjoyed every minute of our stay at Joan & Joe's beachfront luxury condo. We stayed at our first Airbnb in 2016 and in subsequent years I've noticed that the vacations my family talks about most are the ones that have included staying at an Airbnb property. Perhaps it is the relational aspect or an added sense of hospitality, as this is consistently our experience. So upon our arrival when I heard one of my daughter's say, "Look what Joan left us," and the other say, "I love Joan's shampoo," I knew this was the start of a new memory. This condo is both elegant and cozy (a hard combination to nail), and the beachfront location is unlike any property we have ever rented. The condo is not only clean and well-stocked, but also includes beautiful artwork, intricate light fixtures, luxurious hotel-quality beds and comforters, and rainspout shower heads. We really appreciated the beach chairs, umbrella and boogie board provided, plenty of shaded parking, and the convenience to Harris Teeter (4 minutes) and downtown Amelia (10 minutes). Coming from the Northeast, I was concerned that we may not acclimate to Florida weather in July; however, the location made this a non-issue. If it got too hot or storms blew in, we simply continued enjoying the beach from the condo. We felt like we could make the most of our beach time 24/7 because it was always visible. From the kitchen in the evening at high tide, all you can see is a deep black sea. It's spectacular. Communication from Joan from the start was superb and detailed. Upon our arrival, any time we had a question or concern, Joan, Joe and their assistant Kellie were all highly responsive. I also did need some assistance from the rental property folks at the main office (needed on-site windshield replacement) and the women in the office could not have been nicer. It did not matter that we were a private rental, as they just wanted to be helpful too. For the travel-planner in your party, my suggestion would be to start your vacation at The Down Under which is a restaurant with a lot of character and great food on the way to the condo -- perfect way to pass the time until 4 pm check-in. Our other favorite was breakfast and lunch at T-Ray's burger station, an old gas station that is a local gem. We also had a fun evening adventure and learned a lot about Amelia Island from the Amelia Island Ghost Tour (the one guided by Diane). I wished we had been more into planning mode when we first arrived as we missed our window to schedule a sunset cruise. Next time!

We were very pleased with this property. We were there for a family reunion, so relatives had nine other properties rented through the three buildings. Everyone agreed that ours was the best. Great layout, well stocked and most nicely decorated. Very comfortable. We enjoyed staying there and would go back again.

We have stayed in many beach condos, but this one was truly “the best.” The view, the comfort, and the quality of the beautiful interior… wow! To have wine and flowers waiting was so thoughtful.

What an incredibly beautiful place! At the airport writing this review as I couldn’t wait. Joan is the most wonderful host (I am sure Joe is amazing too but I didn’t have the opportunity to connect directly with him). Everything is just as described. There is so much attention to detail and thoughtfulness put into this condo. Cannot recommend enough!

Joan & Joe's beautiful property was perfect in every way. It was a spectacular beach front unit with 2 outdoor balconies, spotlessly clean, well appointed with everything we needed, and conveniently located. We highly recommend this place to anyone looking to get away and visit Amelia Island and Fernandina. Wish we could have stayed longer!

We loved every minute of our trip. The property met and went above our expectations. Joan and Joe were very helpful and quick to answer my questions. My husband and our daughters played tennis daily. The tennis pro was very helpful. Amelia Island is the place to be!

One of the best Airbnbs we’ve ever rented - hands down. Joan and Joe are gracious, helpful hosts. So many special touches - fresh flowers, chocolates, a bottle of wine and Meyer lemons from their garden. It’s obvious how proud they are of this place. The condo is stunning; the beach view will take your breath away. Our first trip to Amelia Island - a five star experience. We can’t wait to return!

When, I opened door and immediately saw the Atlantic Ocean in front of me (and then took in the beautiful decor of the unit), my gratitude for having this opportunity brought a tear! The photos you see online do not provide the full beauty of the unit! Exceptional service, communication, and welcoming environment! I can't wait to return and hope to do so soon!!

This condo is immaculate and offered us some of the best views we have ever experienced on the island. This is a perfect condo for 2 couples given the split floor plan and 2 private balconies. Beautifully appointed in every way. The hosts were very attentive. We can't wait to stay here again.

This was a perfect rental experience. When you enter this condo, you instantly say, "Wow!" The views of the majestic ocean are right in front of you. Then you look around and think this is adorable. The decor is out of a magazine. Cool lighting, kitchen well equipped, bedding is so comfortable, and the cleanliness is rated a 10. We had a welcome surprise of wine, lemons from the owner's house, and several treats. The information notebook is jammed packed with great information. We have stayed and rented all over the country. This is one of our very favorites. We will be back. Thank you so much for taking such great care of us!

Amazing oceanfront condo. Joan and Joe are amazing hosts. They not only took care of us while in Amelia Island but offered us to show us around when we were visiting. The decor of the condo is really well done. Both bedrooms are ocean front facing so it was amazing experience - keeping the doors open, listening to waves.
Joan and Joe got us coffee that we like and also lemons from their gardens to use. The condo was spotless when we checked in. The check in and check out process was smooth. We had a great time and if we end up traveling to Amelia Island, for sure would try booking this condo again. Thanks Joan and Joe!

We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful home. The condominium is spotless, the furnishings so comfortable, the kitchen very well equipped, the check in so easy and the location is perfect. Amelia Island/ Fernandina is such a great place to visit and the owners have left detailed information about all of the restaurants, activities, day trips and excursions available. We were only steps away from the ocean, tennis courts and pool so it’s tempting not to travel off the property! We will be back!

Besides being a beautiful condo with an AMAZING view, every time we said “oh it would be nice if we had… (a beach umbrella, a cooler bag, stemless wine glasses for easy washing)” we found it ready and waiting for us! It truly felt like they had thought of EVERYTHING to make our stay relaxing. Love, love, loved our time at Villa Soleil Amelia and am already planning my next stay!

Choose this gorgeous condo and wake up every morning to a heavenly view of the ocean. Take 3 steps and you will be walking on an expansive beach or dipping your toe in the pool. If you are lucky enough to find a few days grab this rental!!! You will be amazed by the luxury and pampering that Joan and Joe have created. Amelia islanders are so friendly and helpful. I had a wonderful time.

Even Better than Imagined

Although we were very impressed by the pictures, we were even more impressed when we actually arrived. This property has great amenities that make you feel like you're staying at a high-end resort coupled with personal touches like a bottle of wine and herbs from Joan and Joe's garden waiting for you when you walk through the door. Of course, it also has a fantastic view and is very close to the beach. I highly recommend this property and Joan and Joe as owners. We enjoyed our stay and hope to return soon!

Such a soothing retreat for us. As advertised, this place is luxurious and makes you feel pampered and hugged. The window looking out to the ocean -- through binoculars thoughtfully provided by the incomparable hosts -- made it a magical experience. Joan & Joe were thoughtful and available whenever we needed, and were patient with my less than savvy tech skills. All in all a delightful visit to a great city from the luxury of a Ritzy condo. With thanks and gratitude,

AHHHHMAZING!! The views from this condo are spectacular and unmatched! You actually feel like you are on the beach even while in the condo! We had a rainy morning and decided to stay in and watch a movie but the relaxing feeling of being “on the beach” was felt just the same!! Joan was quickly responsive and helpful with all my questions prior to our arrival. Upon entering, we were greeted with fresh flowers - wine - and a personalized note card, which was a warm and very welcoming touch! Beds are super comfy!! Layout is just perfect! We are 4 high school friends reuniting and have decided this will be our spot for our annual get together … **no need to look any further once you find paradise!!** Click book now…. You WON’T be disappointed!!
