Guestbook comments from the owner
We had a fantastic week at your condo - and even without the guest book we would have wanted to communicate that to you! Our family took up 3 units at Colony Reef but our unit was the envy of the group! It was well stocked and supplied with anything that we could possibly need. The Wi-Fi [Private and Secure, Ed.] was especially great as my family stayed in touch with e-mail, work, news and Netflix movies.

We enjoyed laying out on the beach, swimming in the ocean and pool, dinner in the condo and at The Oasis, Saltwater Cowboys and Hurricane Patty's. My family of 20 included grandparents, uncles and aunts, cousins, sons, daughter and grandchildren. We use this as our annual "family reunion." - as a time to reconnect with each other, get away from the dry world of work and chores, and as an important date on our calendar to look forward to. We have been coming for around 30 years. Colony Reef is a special place to us as we watch the passage of time, reminisce with all of the stories of good times here, and remember the loved ones who can no longer join us. Thank you - when can we come back?

My husband and I bought this second home while living in Atlanta, about 6 hours drive from the condo. I am from the Philadelphia area and my husband is from Connecticut. We have lived in many locations, including Boston, Philadelphia, Charleston (SC), Alabama and California. We have travelled extensively, together and separately, around all the continents except Australia and Antartica. When we decided to 'retire,' we chose St. Augustine, FL!

Helen purchased this condo in 1986

My husband and I purchased this condo 'pre-construction' in 1986. We were on vacation, and fell in love with the beach and the town of St. Augustine. The area was settled, by the Spanish, before the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock (MA), in 1565! The slogan on the billboard said: '26 miles of beach, and the rest is history!' We learned that the area has elements to please any vacationer, and is pleasant during the whole year. In the Winter, there's whale watching and golf. In the Spring, there's the sea turtle nesting and the bird migrations. In the Summer, there's surfing and related beach activities. In the Fall, there's visiting the many historical sites and nature preserves. It's only minutes to the Orlando 'World' locations, Cape Kennedy Space Museum, the World Golf Village and Daytona Beach (with NASCAR races). Its only drawback is the lack of snow and those cold and snow activities! (Condo was completely remodeled and updated in 2007.)

We enjoy the peaceful beachfront location. The patio has an unobstructed view of the dune and ocean beyond, without the distraction of the cars and people on the beach; it is a quiet place to read. Being on the ground floor has several advantages: there are no 'hassles' with stairs or elevators; there are two entrances/exits from the condo, and there is no guard rail (which is an element on upstairs units) to disrupt the view; the ground floor unit has a gas grill, a Weber Q grill, to cook outside. We have dedicated, private, and secure wireless Internet (WiFi). (The community, public WiFi is often burdened with traffic and slow.)

Owner's Response: Three condo exits and no stairs or elevator are features we especially enjoy because of the high, ground floor location. We can still enjoy the view of the ocean from the patio, and supervise the children playing nearby. We're delighted you enjoyed your stay.

THE PERFECT CONDO

  • 5 of 5
This Condo was so perfect for our family. We had 4 adults and 2 children, the bedrooms and bathrooms were great for everyone. And when we showed the kids all the beach toys they were so excited. The condo has everything you would need for a stay at the beach. I like to cook so the kitchen was so easy to use and cook in.
The living room was so nice and roomy. The best thing I loved about the condo is that you could sit outside on the lounge chairs and listen to the ocean and not the noise from the pool area. Our family had a great time and enjoyed every minute. Helen is so great to work with, she goes out of her way to make your stay enjoyable.

Owner's Response: We work hard to make the condo a great place for a family beach vacation, and appreciate your comments. Unlike the condo units on the courtyard, the sound of the ocean dominates, not the guests playing in the pool. The patio is an excellent place to enjoy the ocean and read a book.

COULD NOT HAVE BEEN BETTER!!!!

  • 5 of 5
When we walked in and saw the ocean in front of us, all we could say was how lovely. We were more than comfortable, the condo has it all --- including mints. We dined in and the kitchen was well equipped including a stocked spice rack. The owner has anticipated everything. Our stay was perfect, just not long enough to enjoy all the amenities.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the comments. We always have mints, but the Tootsie Rolls seem to disappear more often!

Most guests really like the ocean view from nearly every room, including the kitchen when preparing meals.

We enjoyed having you as our guests.

EXACTLY WHAT WE WERE HOPING FOR,

  • 5 of 5
This Colony Reef unit was equipped with everything to make our stay comfortable and easy. Plenty of linens, beach towels, and other supplies that I usually expect to have to bring or buy. It is well-maintained and everything worked and was clean. We enjoyed cooking, eating together on the patio, dining out nearby, visiting historic St. Augustine, and mostly relaxing at the beach and pool. Enjoyed beautiful sunrises and starry nights, sunny every day. Not too loud or busy around the property but just the right amount of family fun going on. Great pool and facilities, well-managed. Thank you Helen, for sharing your great place at the beach!

BEST VACATION EVER!

  • 5 of 5
This is a very comfortable, roomy condo for 2 adults, 2 fifteen year olds, a 12 y.o., and a preschooler. The condo was clean on arrival, and the grounds are well maintained. The pictures are very accurate. It was nice walking to the nearby beach and pool without having to worry about stairs or the elevator. Very pretty views and comfortable beds. The shower in the master bath is heavenly. The kitchen has all the appliances; we ate most of our meals in the condo, including waffles for breakfast. Helen has stocked everything you need (bath soap, toilet paper, paper towels, trash bags, laundry detergent, dryer sheets, aloe for sunburns, plenty of towels for the beach and bath, spices in the kitchen, and much, much more!) The wi-fi worked well. Grocery stores and downtown St. Augustine are a short drive away. Thanks, Helen, for the extra day. It was difficult to have to return home. I would love to return to this condo in the future. I can't imagine a better owner to work with!

Owner's Response: We're delighted that you, too, appreciate the easy access to everything without dealing with stairs or slow elevators. Another feature of the ground floor location is the open view of the dunes and surf. We installed a private Wi-fi to provide better service than the community system, which can be slow during busy rental periods. Also, we mae it easy for people arriving by air; everything we thiink you might need for your vacation is provided!

Crossing the dunes over the walkway leads to a wide, sandy beach suitable for running, walking, body surfing, boogie boarding, and building sand castles. Early in the morning you can observe the wildlife in the dunes from the patio. Rabbits and ducks are plentiful and entertaining. Look for the Florida land tortoise, an endangered species. (A fox family has arrived in the dunes in 2011.) Nearby, you can engage in Golf and Tour the World Golf Village. Historic St, Augustine is always of interest. There are two major outlet Malls nearby and shopping within the Old City, likely to attract someone in your party. Alligators and Florida are inseparable and the Alligator Farm has been a center for study and protection of Alligators for over a hundred years. Marineland, recently renovated, provides similar education and entertainment with dolphins. For the fishing enthusiast, surf, pier, and deep sea fishing adventures are possible. Fishing at Matanzas Inlet is superb.
