Property type condo
Minimum Stay 1 - 7 nights


About the property

4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 8

You’ll rarely find another 4-bedroom penthouse with such perfect beach views, let alone one so brand, sparkly new. Sand Dollar I 502 is an especially big unit on Crescent Beach with four full bedrooms and a sleeper sofa – so bring a group of up to 8 guests. With elevator access, this 5th-floor penthouse suits your entire family, both grandparents or babies in strollers, everybody!

An immense living room has a full wall of windows, with nothing between you and the beach. Three full couches and two armchairs offer everyone their ‘favorite spot’, yet a genius floor-plan separates the area into two spaces: you do your thing, they’ll do theirs – everyone’s happy.

Sitting pretty (and shiny) after a total remodels, the kitchen is a beautiful space in which to practice perfection. Revel in magazine-kitchen details: there’s a porcelain farmhouse sink, large pantry cupboard, and new stainless steel appliances.

If not on the beach or at the pool, you’ll likely enjoy much of your time out on the ocean-front balcony. Access it from either the living room or your master bedroom (both of which have Blu-Ray).

Ready to see and do? Take the elevator downstairs where private beach access will keep your whole family smiling from sunrise (or a more palatable time of your choosing). Crescent Beach is renowned on Florida’s Atlantic coast for being especially suited to families and its gorgeous, soft white sand. It’s perfect, too, for boogie boarding and swimming.

Sand Dollar is right on the water at a particularly narrow piece of land. If you spread your arms wide enough you might touch both the Atlantic Ocean and the Matanzas Intracoastal at once. As such, this condo is ideal for those who love watersports (or have always wanted the time to try), with endless day-trip possibilities and wildlife galore. Should you ever tire of the beach, a sidewalk runs along the Intracoastal and makes a great sunset walk. Tennis, too, is easy to squeeze in any time with fully lit facilities.

Ideally located for quick and easy errands, the Sand Dollar complex is within a 5-mile radius of every imaginable shop and amenity: find restaurants, coffee shops, and pubs, plus book stores (for your beach reading) and pharmacies (should you need more sunscreen).

Fort Matanzas National Monument is just down the road (5-10 minutes’ drive) and nature-lovers might, with luck and patience, see the osprey and turkey vultures who call the fort home.

Imaginative kids will delight in staying on a stretch of the Matanzas River called ‘Devil’s Elbow’, as you spend your vacation exploring St. Augustine’s pirate past. Imagine the pirate bedtime stories you can enjoy here (they’ll never notice they’re learning!). As for your R& R, this gorgeous condo has not only new furniture throughout but also the fine lines of a five-star hotel.

too many issues to explain here

  • 1 of 5

Worst experience ever, tried to resolve issues with the office but never, in 8 tries, but never got a return phone call. Looking into what other action we can take.

Lovely place - no hot tub

  • 4 of 5

Our family has visited St. Augustine several times over the past couple of years and wanted to try a place right on the beach. The condo did not disappoint! The accommodations were great, we cooked, we ran on the beach, we toured new (to us) sites around St. Augustine.

However, there was an issue, the condo was advertised to have a hot tub and did not. This was a large inconvenience especially for my mother-in-law because she uses a hot tub to do her stretches daily. We called VRBO and Vacation Rental Pro's and the could not find us one to use offsite during our stay. I found the customer service to be a little lacking, when trying to work out the issue, I got a LOT of finger pointing by the two organizations and no solution for us. We were also promised some sort of "compensation" from them but have had no further communication. :(

While we loved the condo but, we will likely choose to use a different company to book our next adventure.

Such nice rooms and right on a beautiful beach!

  • 5 of 5

The place was lovely and we walked the beach everyday. We saw turtles, bunnies and a snake (from the room balcony). The view of the water from the room was terrific and we loved even just sitting on the lanai. The rooms were clean, spacious and the beds were comfortable. One of the most important things for us, the bathrooms were clean! We had all of the tools and dishes we needed. The location is great, near St. Augustine and not crowded at all. It was a VERY lovely stay for all seven of us!!!

Beautiful Family Vacation at the Beach

  • 5 of 5

This penthouse was perfect for our family of 10; plenty of seating space; fully equipped kitchen. We had adults & children alike; the views are spectacular. The only minus is the pool is not heated, so Jan. is chilly and we were not able to use the pool. But the beach is right outside your door, so plenty of time for the kids to play there. St. Augustine has a lot to offer and this place is only 15 min. from downtown but nice & quiet area.

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

The condo was just as pictured. Spacious, clean and comfortable. Loved the oceanfront unit with large balcony. The ocean is so soothing. We would definitely return to Sand Dollar and Crescent Beach

Sand Dollar I, Unit #502

  • 5 of 5

The pictures on the internet look just like the actual condo. Everything was clean and in good condition when we arrived. We had an electrical problem and an electrician came out within 2 hours of our call. He was thorough and professional. Any staff we encountered was super. My family wants to go back to the same condo again. Thanks for a great experience.
