Our Mission at Fernandina Beach Realty and Amelia Vacations is to provide exceptional service to every customer and client, using Christian principles and practices, and treat them as if they were an honored guest in our home.

Our honest and professional real estate and rental staff are committed to providing this level of service each and every day, without fail, no exception.

Company History

Fernandina Beach Realty was formed in 1974 by Steve Simmons as a full-service real estate and rental management office. We were Amelia Island’s first vacation rental company almost 50 years ago. The company is proud to have been involved in the construction and development of several of the finer condominium and residential developments on and near the Island. Being the first, full-service rental/property management office on the Island, we have grown and so has the demand. Since 1989 our short-term rental program has increased 143% and the long-term program, 131%.

Areas Serviced

Our excellent beachside location lends a hand to our expertise on the beach of Amelia. Our staff specializes in oceanfront condominiums, homes, rental property and lots. We have also played an important role in the commercial renovations at Main Beach. Several staff members are also experts on property off the Island, such as Yulee, where you may find large acreage tracts or farms. Whatever your need, we have someone that can assist you.
