Wonderful condo on the beach

  • 5 of 5

My family of five (two adults and three teenagers) recently spent a week at this condo on the beach. This was our eighth year to stay in this condo. We keep coming back because we love it so much. This is a ground floor unit in a three story building. We park right outside the sliding glass doors to load and unload our vehicle. This is a very quiet complex and noise from the neighbors has never been an issue. The beach is a short walk over the boardwalk. We keep our beach supplies on the patio. There are five hot tubs and two swimming pools located on the property all within walking distance. We use all of them! There is also a small pond, tennis courts and racquet ball court. The bed in the master bedroom is more comfortable than our bed at home. We purchase groceries from Publix just down the road and cook our meals in the kitchen in the condo. The owner is very friendly and always responds immediately when I need to make a reservation. There have been several updates to the condo in recently (tile floors and bathroom updates) including a new sleeper sofa in the living room which my teenage son enjoyed sleeping on. We have already made reservations for next year!

Clean, Well stocked, and Conveniently located!

  • 5 of 5

The property and condo itself was very clean and well maintained. The kitchen was stocked with plenty of pots, pans, utensils, etc. Upon arrival there was enough soap, TP, etc to last a day or two so an immediate trip to the supermarket (which is around the corner) wasn't necessary. The entrance to the beach is steps away, St Augustine 10 minutes drive, and everyone in the complex was extremely friendly. I would definitely recommend!

The only slight complaint is that the WiFi is a bit slow -- I was able to stream Netflix, but video conferencing for work was a no-go.

Clean, bright, and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this unit for 2 weeks this past August. We arrived from Canada hot, tired... and with 4 miserable kids in tow. I fear dirty places, so I brought loads of cleaning supplies ...but there was no need! This place was sparkling! It was clear that many elements of the unit have been recently renovated. We stayed for two weeks and felt right at home. I cooked and even baked in the cute kitchen. Having access to our car just outside the unit and being on the main floor a short stroll to the beach was very convenient. 3 of our 4 children have special needs, so we were afraid to travel before this experience. The beautiful, safe location and amenities like WiFi and laundry in the unit saved us, as did the fast delivery service from local restaurants and the proximity of the Publix grocery store. We found all of the staff at the resort to be very understanding, helpful, and kind. Everything we needed was in the unit, except maybe some spare light bulbs, but my husband was fine to replace them, so it wasn't a big deal really. The two pools are beautiful and well maintained...I could go on and on. Unfortunately, for next year the friends we travel with want to go to another part of Florida, but St. Augustine and this great place are in our hearts, and we definitely want to return!

Awesome Vacation !!

  • 4 of 5

What a really nice resort and condo!! The location to the pool, hot tubs (one right next door) and ocean is just a short walk to all. When we arrived the condo was clean and the staff was really courteous and didn't seemed rushed as we arrived close to 5pm...very helpful also. The condo has all the amenities of home and is prefect for logging in groceries and luggage after a long day of driving. The recliner is really comfortable as are the beds. Slept better hear than at home. Oh and the resort is REALLY quiet. The staff was more than helpful with arranging the trolley pick up (would recommend) and nice to hear about St. Augustine, the history and The Seafood Kitchen is a must and a big thank you to the security guard for recommending!! I would also like to say Thank You to the owner for being so helpful when my vacation dates changed at the last minute. I would most definitely recommend this place and will be going back.

Great St. Augustine beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

The things I like about this condo are (1) that you can walk to the beach, pools, hot tubs and tennis courts, (2) it is a ground floor unit so you can load and unload your vehicle through the patio door which leads out to the parking lot, (3) it is very close to many places to eat (but we cook most of our meals in the condo) and (4) it is close to the many things to do that St. Augustine has to offer. My favorite activity is walking down to the beach and spending time there sitting, walking or riding the waves on a boogie board (we took a free surfboarding lesson two years ago). I have stayed in this condo four years in a row and I have reservations to return this year. The owner is very friendly and I would recommend this property to a friend.

St Augustine Beach condo review

  • 2 of 5

The resort where this condo is located is nice. Close to the beach and nice pool and jacuzzi. Good restaurants close by (Sunset Grill). Close to historic St Augustine which is a fabulous city to walk around in, dine and shop. The view from the small balcony was a parking lot. The furnishings are very dated and the mattresses in both bedrooms were hard and very uncomfortable. If you go there, be sure to bring necessities such as dish soap/powder and toilet paper because nothing is provided. Both TV's are old. The disposal did not work. Numerous lightbulbs were burnt out

Owner's Response: Pictures of the entire Condo with current furnishings are available on the web site as well as the exterior of the complex. Every Unit in the Condo complex has the same dimensions inside and out as does the patios. Only the ocean front units face the ocean. All other units face the parking lot. The view from the patio shows the sand dunes which protect the complex should a severe storm occur. All the bedroom mattresses and bedding were replaced within the past 18 months. Our on-site management provides toilet tissues and bath soap upon arrival only. Please note that a Condo is different from a Hotel. Condos are cleaned before arrival by the Office Management. They do not provide daily services like bed making and soap supplies. If you would like this service contact the office, and for a fee they will provide you with that service. For your convenience there is a Public Food Store 1/4 miles from our Condo. Our Condo comes with Cable, 2 color TV, CD, VHS and a wireless internet. We were informed that our On-Site Management handled the immediate repair of the disposal as it was reported to them, as well as any burnt out light bulbs which they replaced. We are pleased to say that we have had numerous satisfied renters during our ownership of our Condo, and many have returned more than once.
