Prepare to be thoroughly spoiled at our ocean view condo at Colony Reef 2310! Between the breathtaking view of the ocean from our balcony and all the fun ways to relax at this condo community including an indoor heated pool and an outside oceanside pool, you are about to have the best vacation of your life!<br/><br/>First let's talk about the balcony, because we predict that's where you'll be spending a lot of your time! It's nothing like that narrow strip of cement-and-rail you may be used to at hotels. This is a full outdoor room, with views in two directions and room for a table and chairs with space to spare. Look out over the magnificent oceanside swimming pool and beautifully landscaped grounds and you will see the fabulous wild dunes, a strip of pure white beach, and the sparkling Atlantic! You'll also smell that fresh sea breeze and hear the low murmur of the crashing waves. What a lovely way to wake up each morning . . . and go to sleep to each night.<br/><br/>From the balcony you enter the living room of Colony Reef 2310, and here again, the first thing you may notice is the sheer space. This is a nice-sized room, with plenty of super-comfortable seating, a large LCD TV with DVD player and VCR, and a ceiling fan. One of the couches converts to sleep 2 people, should you wish. (And what a view of the sunrise those lucky folks will have! You may just have to use the sofa sleeper yourself one night to get a panoramic view of the dawn.) <br/><br/>Just beyond the living room is the kitchen, with a long low breakfast bar for informal dining and a convenient way to keep the cook involved in the conversation. You will love our kitchen. The space is economical, yet it has absolutely everything you could ask for, from all major and minor appliances to a full set of cookware, dishes, and utensils. There's even a little laundry room tucked back behind the kitchen, with a full washer and dryer at your disposal. <br/><br/>The dining area is fun and bright, with a beach-casual décor. Our glass-topped oval table is just the right size for playing board games, by the way -- and it's a good place to set up the laptop and use our free wireless Internet to update your Facebook status ("Saw dolphins in the surf this morning!"). In fact, the table usually becomes Command Central around here, so you might just have to eat out on the balcony. What a shame!<br/><br/>Getting a great night's sleep is so important to your vacation that you're going to love the bedrooms here at Colony Reef 2310. The master bedroom contains a queen-sized bed, with balcony access from the floor-to-ceiling sliding glass door, a TV, plenty of storage space, and an en-suite master bathroom. It will become your haven of peace and slumber after all those busy days!<br/><br/>The second bedroom offers 2 twin beds and a TV, and the third is our Crow's Nest, with 2 stationary twin beds. The kids will love the idea of sleeping here!<br/><br/>All of the linens, pillows, and blankets are provided for these beds, as are the towel sets for our two full bathrooms. No making an emergency run to Wal-Mart to buy an extra pillow; you'll have everything you need right at Colony Reef 2310.<br/><br/>Our condo is located on the second floor of the building, which has elevator service. Colony Reef is a fun and vibrant condo complex with outdoor and heated indoor swimming pools, a fitness room, sauna, hot tub, kids' playground, and both racquetball and tennis courts. There is always something new to try! <br/><br/>Beach access is just a few yards from your door, via a lovely zigzag walkway over the natural dunes. You may enjoy this walk almost as much as the destination! But when you reach those sugary sands and see the rolling waves, you know you've arrived. Located between Crescent and St. Augustine beaches, our strip of coastline is wonderfully uncrowded and just perfect for all activities, from sunbathing to surfing, castle-building to kite-flying. <br/><br/>Colony Reef 2310 has everything you need to create an unforgettable vacation: comfort, excitement, and beauty. Come stay at this piece of paradise.
My name is Steve Milo and I stay in Vacation Rental Homes when I travel both domestically and abroad. I own several vacation rental homes and listen carefully to our guests and their feedback and then opened my company Vacation Rental Pros in 2006! Our greatest compliment is when our guests refer our web site to their friends and relatives. AND, now Vacation Rental Pros is managing over 825 properties in Ft Myers Beach, Orlando, St Augustine Beach, Daytona Beach, Palm Coast and Ponte Vedra Beach. Our guests and their great 'word of mouth' have helped us expand to over 825+ vacation rentals. We booked over 15,000 rentals and received over 5,000 guest reviews in 2014.
Had a few problems this time. The pass to get thru the guard gate had the wrong date, the code to the unit did not work, took a while to get one that did, and the exit gate with out the guard would not let us out after dark, no supper that first night.
We stayed in Unit 234 in Building 300. Just some small maintenance issues. The refrigerator was warm on arrival, I called and reset the settings. It was cold the next morning. Was told this is typical due to the cleaning crew. Maybe just leave a noted on the fridge in the future, especially if you have meds that have to be refrigerated like we did. One hanging light over the breakfast bar had been broken and there was a bulb still in the socket. The grate over the shower in the master bath was missing the screws so it could be slid aside and leaving the drain pipe exposed and open. The carpet needs to be cleaned, especially in the hallway. Also, the small chair in the Master, the rear legs come off, the main hall sidebar table is very shaky as are the bedside tables in the queen bedroom.<br/>The location was fantastic, the beach was fantastic as well as the pools and the Pool Eatery which has great food and service. We are already planning our next vacation with you! Oh, one more thing, the covered balcony sure could use a ceiling fan!! Would make it much more pleasant!
Beautiful condo and nice view! Would have liked to have beach access a lttle closer but otherwise, great place!
Clean and modern condominium. Highly reco for Families. The beach and 2 pool areas are lovely. Enjoyed fying kites on the grassy areas. Great neighborhood feel for walking.
