Sailmaker unit was clean & comfortable with a great view. Beautiful beach, beautiful area. I was surprised at the number of families there with dogs. All of the literature stresses NO PETS, but it seemed like everyone had their dog with them-- which was fine with me since I stayed in one of the few "pet friendly" units and brought my dog. I'm just wondering how there were so many dogs there if most of the units do not allow them?

Abby, wonderful to hear you enjoyed your stay at Summer Beach Resort and that you were able to bring along your dog! Because each unit is owned privately, it’s up to the owner to specify whether or not they allow pets. We also have a number of full-time residents on our property who own dogs. We hope to see you and your pup again soon & thanks for your feedback!

My husband and I stayed at Summer Beach Resort's Ocean Place in mid-September last year. Our son had been very sick over the entire summer and we were in desperate need of a romantic get-away! Thank goodness for wonderful mother-in-laws :) Summer Beach resort was everything that the doctor called for and then some!! We stayed in an ocean front, corner unit, 2nd floor condo. Normally we prefer the highest available room, but this one was perfect. Whether we were in the living room, master bedroom or on the balcony, we had beautiful views all around us. There was a very nice, quite pool to the right of our balcony where we met a few other friendly, vacationing couples. Even played football on the beach with one of the couples! We saw dolphins jumping out in the water every day while we had coffee on our balcony. The WiFi was free, too. The condo itself had everything you needed and was quite large for a 2 BR, 2 BA. If you want to be left alone, you can easily enjoy your peace and quiet. There is a grocery store close by and you can just cook in your condo. But, you are also close enough to town that you can go out in the evening, have dinner, dance, or whatever you like. We enjoyed the short drive into the "heart" of the city and never felt unsafe at any point. The locals made us feel very welcome wherever we went. All around it was a wonderful trip and we would definitely recommend Summer Beach Resort's Ocean Place condos to all our friends and family! We are hoping to be able to come here again in September this year, as we found that the perfect time of year to come!

We starting coming to Amelia Island in 2011. We have been back here three times, each time we stay with Summer Beach Resort. We've stayed in Sailmaker 3 times and Ocean Place one. I love Sailmaker!! I love the layout, family friendly, pet friendly, nice clubhouse (with food and drinks) and pools (2). Love the wildlife and the way they take care of the grounds. I would highly recommend to anyone. My family will be going back again and again. I really can't say enough good things. Also close to restaurants, shopping, Harris Teeters. Never had any problems to speak of. Very nice staff and good security.

Great family vacation area of Amelia Island. Stayed in the Sail Maker properties. Had a three bedroom two floor townhome. Lots of room for our family. Clean ,nicely furnished. Sail Maker has a nice swimming pool in the middle of the complex,a nice grass courtyard before reaching the expansive dunes and the wide clean beach. Seems to be mainly family vacationers ,very few full time residents. The entrance is welcoming with trees ,flowers and a gazebo. Nice manicured landscaping. Felt very safe in the gated community. Right down from the Ritz Carlton that is only one of many properties of Summer Beach Resort. Very nice area,Will come back for sure.

Room tip: There are seven different buildings ,four ocean front and three behind them surrounding the pool. Save some money and rent in the three poolside buildings ,nicely manicured with wind swept oak trees and the difference in time walking to the beach may be 30 seconds. The 300 building is nice ,choosing a unit on the ends with their extra side windows.

We stayed in the Sailmaker townhouses with family for a long weekend. We had an end unit 2nd floor townhouse which gave us a great ocean view. It is a short walk to the beach and to the pool.
Our unit was very nicely decorated and clean.
We had other family members staying on a ground floor unit and there unit was much darker with not as nice a view so if you can do the stairs I would stay on an upper floor. Beautiful area.

Room tip: Would choose an upper floor for better views and an end unit if you can do the 2 flights of stairs.
