About Jeff & Maria Alberts
My wife and I have been renting out our retreat for many years. Our family loves going to the mountains and beach and spending time together. We are excited to be able to offer our home for your next vacation. We take great pride in our vacation home, love sharing it with others, and try very hard to give our guests the best possible experience they can have. My son and I love watching and going to football games. We enjoy attending our daughters musical performances. Our whole family enjoys hiking in the Smoky Mountains in the spring, and going to the beach in the summer.
Jeff & Maria Alberts purchased this Condo in 2004
Why Jeff & Maria Alberts chose Saint Augustine Beach
Our Condo is located in the magnificent complex, St. Augustine Ocean & Racquet, a gated community on Anastasia Island. It was recently voted the 'Best Condominium Community in St. Augustine'. Located in northeast Florida, the area is easy to get to. Due to the regular sand replenishment program, the beaches are always immaculately clean, and very wide. You can even go for a bike ride on the beach - one of my favorite things to do with the kids. Bring the fishing gear, because there is a lake right in the complex. There are also two pools, one of which is heated and there are five jacuzzis - great for the Fall and Winter. We enjoy 'hot tubbing' at night - picking a different jacuzzi to relax in after a great meal at night. Don’t forget that St. Augustine, America’s oldest city, is just a few miles away with all the restaurants, shopping and family-fun events you could ever want.
What makes this Condo unique
Being on the first floor and ocean front it is so easy and fast to get back and forth to the beach. Our backyard is a real plus and one we have never seen at any other resorts.

Weekend with friends
This property was very clean and well-equipped with everything needed, including spare batteries and extension cord for our fondue pot. The beach walkway is close-by . On a two mile stroll up the beach, very little trash and no cigarette butts seen.
The condo owner is very easy to communicate with, and all is as advertised. We hope to get away to this unit again next year!
There are many locally owned diners/restaurants nearby with good food selections and craft beers at great prices. A ten minute drive gets you to downtown St Augustine to enjoy the lighthouse, fort and more good food (especially at Capp’s on the river)!
For those who enjoy hunting for a good bargain, the roof-covered St Augustine Flea Market is open on Saturdays/Sundays with friendly vendors and a huge selections of items for sale.
We always discover something new and interesting in the St Augustine area.
Thank you Cheryl for taking the time to write such an awesome review! It was delightful having your family as guests, and my wife and I are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay. Thanks also for leaving your nice tips on places to go for our future guests.
Looking forward to your family's next visit. All the best.

Beautiful condo right on the beach
I was pleased that the condo was exactly steps from the beach as stated in the description. We had a wonderful time and I would recommend this place to any family or group looking for the perfect beach getaway.
Thanks so much Jamarah for your wonderful feedback. You were a pleasure to host, and we hope you are able to make your way back soon. Happy New Year. Jeff & Maria
Nights of lights
The king size bed was hard as a rock. After 3 nights, I can hardly move. The twin beds were just a slight bit softer but not much. The decor though dated was nice. The furniture especially the dining room set was very wobbly. Not very sturdy for seniors or people that weigh over 100 pounds.
The kitchen was stocked with just about everything you need.
The location of the property was good in conjunction to downtown and restaurants.
Please update the beds and furniture soon.
We are sorry to hear Jacqueline about your experience staying with us. We have not had any issues with the beds or dining room chairs before, but appreciate you bringing this to our attention, so we can look into this matter. Thanks again for staying with us. Jeff & Maria
Everything was nice! Enjoyed staying in the condo and would definitely stay there again
Thanks for the nice review, and for choosing to stay with us. Can't wait till you can come back again. All the best, Jeff
Just finished an incredible week at this property. Location is perfect... closest condo to the beach. ...close to publix...only 10 minutes to historic st augustine. Great restaurants. Beautiful beach. The interior of the condo is very tired...could use new furniture and upgrades, but in the grand scheme of things this is not a deterrent. Loved it here!!
Thank you for sharing your review on your recent stay . We are sorry that our furnishings were not to your liking, but are pleased that you had a great time and enjoyed your vacation. Our goal is 100% guest satisfaction, and we won’t rest until we get it. Thanks again Whitney for your feedback, and for staying with us. Jeff
This was a wonderful experience with our granddaughter . We were thrilled with the location... very close to historical St. Augustine, the lighthouse, restaurants and shopping. Thank you for sharing your cozy home that was so accessible to the beach!
Hey David & Noreen, We are so happy to have you and your granddaughter stay with us. Having the condo so close to the beach with the easy access to the boardwalk really is a plus. Best, Jeff.
Your home is close by miniature golf - close enough to ride your bikes to. Try the delicious soft serve ice cream right by the 18th hole.
Our favorite restaurant is Beachcombers, a small tucked away place offering good food at reasonable prices that only the locals know about. You can actually walk there on the beach!
