About Christa

retired teacher

Christa purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Christa chose St. Augustine Area

Great location with direct access to a magnificent unpopulated Ocean beach; no roads to cross and direct access via board walk or sandy path to the beach. Beautifully decorated, quiet side street, yet with numerous restaurants nearby; ca. 7 minutes away from the historic village, the zoo, lighthouse, the National Monuments 'Castillo San Marco' as well as 'the original fort 'Matanzas' in the middle of the Intracoastal waterway and more. A few more minutes to state parks and a dolphin sanctuary. The famous St. Augustine outlets are just 20 minutes away; the Town Center in Jacksonville offers a great selection of stores and more restaurants in a unique walk-outside setting. Bicyclists find many trails including ongoing beach miles.

What makes this apartment unique

Turn-key ready. Starter coffee, tea and snacks provided (Keurig coffee maker and additional coffee maker);kitchenette features appliances for light food preparation (Nu-wave cooktop, new 9 cubic ft. refrigerator/freezer, microwave, toaster oven/grill/bake combo), front patio with view of palm trees as well as rear patio surrounded by blooming shrubs and stockade fence.

Small but great location and easy walk to the beach!

  • 4 of 5

My Wife and I had a blast in St. Augustine! Very cool people, great food (check out the taco stand at the end of the street) and nice beach! The room is set up more like a studio (great for two adults) and a very small room with a bathroom and a twin bed. The second room would be great for a small child. There is not a full kitchen but a good size fridge and toaster oven to warm things up. Next visit to St. Augustine we are going to bring the family so we will need a bit more room but would recommend this for two people.

Owner's Response: The apartment is definitely ideal for a 2 person getaway ( just as advertised) with considerably more space and added accommodations compared to just a hotel room. (The adjoining 10 x 12 room with a single day-bed is just a bonus to the large gathering room with a queen size bed).Beach chairs and beach umbrella, beach towels are also provided. Most guests enjoy the beach, the proximity to historical sites and the amphitheater as well as numerous great restaurants nearby; for example the Beachcomber at water's edge, Mango Mangos, The Taco Shop with picnic benches, all three just a stone's throw away. Other restaurants such as Salt Life, Panama Hatties, Café Eleven etc. just a few blocks from here. There are several breakfast places around here as well, the Oasis (upstairs), a Panera in Cobblestone Village etc. I hear, the Kokkaburra, 1 minute walk, makes great coffee. Or you can enjoy making your own with the Keurig coffee maker or alternatively the filter coffee maker; a Nu-Wave cooktop and a convection/toaster oven is provided.

We had an amazing time. Beautiful property right on the beach and very close to downtown. Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We visited the property to celebrate our 5 year anniversary and we enjoyed every minute of it. The property is beautiful and has direct beach access and is very close to downtown historic St Augustine. The owner was very helpful in explaining all aspects of the house and was very responsive to all inquires. We loved our stay and will definitely return!

Clean and close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect place for a few nights stay. Practically on the beach and an easy 15 minute drive to Old Town St. Augustine. Walking distance to quite a few good restaurants for breakfast, lunch and dinner. My husband and I were looking for a quick, quiet get away and this was exactly what we needed.

Thanks Christa for your hospitality!

The property had great access to the beach and was good for a couple.

  • 4 of 5

This property was very convenient to restaurants and Old St. Augustine. The best part was that access to the beach was right outside the door. Outside showers were nice after coming off the beach. Our only complaint would be that the kitchen area was small (little sink and no real oven), but it served our needs. The location description in the ad was accurate. The property was clean, maintained well, had plenty of towels (for showers and beach), and had beach accessories.

Owner's Response: The apartment is indeed very comfortable for two persons. The kitchenette/bar features a copper bar sink; the microwave oven as well as the convection oven/toaster oven combo provides for light food preparation; the NuWave cooktop is an addition to this set-up. A Weber barbeque is available upon request. Guests come from all over the United States and greatly enjoy the many great restaurants nearby as well.

Wonderful Beach Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Christa was a fantastic host and the property was perfect for a leisurely beachside getaway. Everything was well-appointed and comfortable and close in proximity to a variety of restaurants, shopping and more. We appreciated that it was a little out of the bustle of downtown and so easy to access the beach. We will definitely return. Thank you so much!

Fantastic Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our overall experience of the property was fantastic! Christa was extremely helpful from the time of booking until the day of checkout. The house was exactly as described. Within SHORT walking distance of the beach, restaurants and shops. The house has plenty of room for 2-3 people, with all needed items (linens, towels, cookware, beach accessories, etc.) provided. We really enjoyed out stay and cannot wait to return!
