First I would like to thank Susan for accommodating our schedule. We stayed in this condo the first two weeks of April. This is my first time using VRBO or even renting a condo for a vacation. The booking was very easy and everything was ready for us and the condo was everything as described.
This condo is perfect for two couples. There is a ton of room for everyone. It is clean and well equipped. Some furniture and the beds are new.
Everyday we enjoyed our morning coffee sitting on the balcony overlooking the ocean. You can then walk out the L/R sliding patio doors and a few steps and you are on the boardwalk to the beach and within two minutes you are set up and enjoying the beach. The unit is located in a good area of the beach. It is quieter there and never a problem finding a spot with lots of space around.
There are two pools but they weren't heated while we were there but really didn't need to be. The water was refreshing and the pools were crystal clear and no chlorine smell. The grounds are immaculate and well cared for. The maintenance man is on site and keeps a very close eye on everything.
This is a small complex of approx. 50 units. Most seem to be owner occupied. Only on a couple of occasions did we encounter kids at the pool and they were well behaved. Most times we had the pool to ourselves. There is lots of space to catch some rays and some shaded provided by the palm trees. All the people that were there were very nice and easy to chat with. The complex itself is very quiet and relaxing.
St Augustine is very beautiful and although small, we never felt cramped or crowded. We spent time on many of the tours and visited a number of attractions. We had a couple of Bar B Q's at the condo but also enjoyed dining out at several of the local restaurants.
I see I still have space so for those interested, we really enjoyed meals at Sunset Grill, Saltwater Cowboys, Mojos BBQ, La Strada and Carrabbas. We toured on the Old Town Trolley tour and the sites we enjoyed were the Fort of course, Fountain of Youth, the schooner Freedom and the Old Jail plus the winery and distillery tours.
Overall we were all very happy with the accommodations. I would not hesitate for a second to return to or recommend this unit to anyone else. Our time there flew by and we hated to leave. There is still a lot for us to see and do in St Augustine so I am sure we will be back. Thank you for providing a wonderful unit.
