We had a wonderful two night stay at the Amelia Island William House! Veronica was a wonderful host and very attentive to all of our needs!! The gourmet breakfast was delicious both days and presented in such an elegant manner...we have never been so pampered during breakfast! The Smugglers Cove room was fantastic. The private screened in porch was a nice treat, even though it was a bit chilly...See More

Our three night stay was outstanding. Our room was clean and the mattress was comfortable and the decor in Chloe’s Garden room was beautiful. The House is 120 steps (we counted for some reason) from the Island best restaurant David’s and we couldn’t get a reservation on Saturday night. One call from Veronica and we were seated at a 7pm reservation. By the way David’s was excellent. The location...See More

The thoughtful additions and touches to the rooms didn't go unnoticed. I would highly recommend this...See More

I got the impression that our...See More
