About The Owner

Bill and I are privileged to share this wonderful family heirloom that is perched over the ocean and under the clouds! We are humbled and inspired by our guests' unsolicited stellar reviews, which confirm that the jewel in our care is meant to be shared. We live in nearby Gainesville and insure that a welcoming home is prepared for each special guest. We celebrate over 40 years of marriage and are convinced that our most memorable, rejuvenating moments have been here, at the finest Penthouse Paradise!

Why The Owner chose St. Augustine

Mom hand-picked this prime top and center location pre-construction, from the plans! She and Dad researched the area for 25 years, coming on weekends to find the best private, undisturbed location on the most pristine beach--and it's only 15 minutes to charming St. Augustine!

What makes this condo unique

The lofty, breathtaking ocean, sunrise, sunset, treetop views, uninterrupted, 180 degrees on both east and west balconies are phenomenal! Fresh sea breezes under the clouds are privately yours on top of the world in this penthouse 4th floor condo built high on a dune! Enjoy sky-high living on the 235 sq ft oceanfront balcony furnished with Cay Sal sling chair dining and cushioned chaise lounges. Romantic shrimp boat lights look like stars on the night horizon; moon and stars seem so close you could reach out and touch them! Come for quiet, solitary night swimming in the aqua-lighted pool below to the not-so-distant roar of ocean waves and rustling palm branches. In the morning, roll the beach bicycles down the private, gated boardwalk and ride the coast with your companion for miles...cozy, private paradise every time!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you once again for having us at your beautiful and inviting home. We enjoyed our trip so much last year, we came back. Everything was just as expected: fluffy towels and a lovely comfortable bed, sightseeing information at the ready, and a long list of yummy restaurants. The recliner was the best seat in the house – great choice. Enjoyed the quiet and comfortable surroundings. The long walks on the beach opened our eyes to reconnect from the busy life we have. We love coming back to your “Paradise in the Sky”. We had a great week of fun and laughter!

The Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Words cannot accurately describe the absolutely breathtaking views from the private balcony of this condo. My wife and I spent four nights here and wish we never had to leave. The ocean stretches as far as the eye can see in both directions, and the moonlight reflecting off the waves at night is a sight to behold. Everything in the penthouse is perfectly situated and the beach is literally just steps away! The heated pool was relaxing throughout the day with no traffic in and out; it was just like having a private pool! No crowds, no traffic, just the best weekend imaginable. The owners have gone above and beyond to accomodate us on short notice and have made this the best anniversary getaway possible. I can't say enough good things about our stay; we will definitely be returning many times in the future!

Keeps Getting Better!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here for several years, and every time we come back, Bill and Linda have upgraded! This year we enjoyed new stainless steel refrigerator/range appliances, elegant foyer tile, new bath lighting, and artistic black and white photography. All was immaculate as usual, with a fully stocked kitchen and extras like beverages, snacks, bath items and spa soaps. As we were relaxing on the lofty balcony, we spotted a family of dolphins diving for fish - and terns swooping and diving - very fun to watch. Sometimes we were entertained by a windsurfer riding the waves and doing stunts. Definitely go to the Purple Olive and/or Salt Water Cowboys, just north at the first light, for fabulous food. We'll be back!

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

I now understand why Linda and Bill have such a high return rate. We have traveled all over the world and have rented a LOT of houses and apartments. This apartment is one of the best if not the best in terms of location, amenities, comfort and cleanliness! (I have tried to find a speck of dust. I failed).

Here are a few things that this apartment has (that are always lacking in other places) that make the stay even more enjoyable: elevator, balcony big enough for a table for 4 and 2 long chairs, covered balcony with sun in the morning, tons of different pillows to choose from, many many towels, many many different kinds of duvets and blankets, saran wrap-ziplocs-laundry detergent, beach chairs and umbrellas, beach bikes, etc

We have already made our reservations for next year and we NEVER go back twice to the same place.

Owner's Response: Yes, World Travelers, Bill and I are perfectionists and we're glad you noticed! "Best Location, Amenities, Comfort and Cleanliness!" We love your delight and total satisfaction! Thank you for honoring us with your first-in-a-lifetime return next year. Welcome to our happy beach family of almost 100% return guests!

Nature Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Simple elegance created the perfect beach environment for blissful morning meditation and coffee. Every detail is thoughtfully cared for and provided. Perfectly clean and organized, we never wanted to leave! Viewing the glorious sunrises (each day unique) from the balcony inspired us every morning to breath deeply and revel in the pristine nature before us. The wildlife was everywhere. Bunnies and turtles, dolphins and pelicans, this morning a red cardinal perched on the railing. Also, looking west provided the perfect sunset views and cloud gazing. This morning the surf was up and in the light of dawn I thought I saw a surfer, but lo and behold it was a pod of dolphins riding the curling waves. You can walk for miles, ride bikes on the beach and swim in the magnificent pool, or rest for hours on the shaded balcony, the perfect beach retreat.

JUST WHEN YOU THINK IT CAN'T GET BETTER....

  • 5 of 5

Our second visit to this fabulous penthouse was the predictable spotless, squeaky clean, modern, luxurious home, equipped with every imaginable thing you would ever want in every room. The 4th floor unobstructed view from the private 28' balcony gave us a breathtaking infinity view of the ocean. The living room and master bedroom's ceiling to floor glass walls/doors offers a panoramic 24/7 view of the beach and ocean. The kitchen is a chef's dream and to our surprise, this year included brand new all stainless steel appliances. We loved the fridge ice/water dispenser and it tasted better than the best bottled water. If you like all this plus plush, thick, sparkle-white bath towels, specialty soaps, 3 flat screen TV's, a huge walk-in glass shower (plus another bath) and 2 king size bedrooms with huge closets, this is the place for you!! And, you will really appreciate the warmth and friendliness of the owners who aim to please! This is definitely a 5 star plus!

Everything You Need!

  • 5 of 5

Linda and Bill clearly understand what people are looking for in a vacation and it starts when you first make contact. They go out of their way to make your vacation worry free and provide little extras in the condo that make you feel welcome. The condo is spotless and well equipped with everything you need for a great stay. The property is also clean and well-maintained and the beach is as good as it gets. I would not hesitate to return to this property, or recommend to friends and family. We also enjoyed St. Augustine area attractions and restaurants. Our favorites included the South Beach Grill for terrific seafood (a short walk from the condo), the Purple Olive for good food and great service and Osteen's for super fried shrimp and that classic diner experience. The descriptions and photos in the listing are very accurate and reflect the condo's appearance and amenities.
