Our 2-story tennis villa at Colony Reef 16B is the ideal launch pad for your St. Augustine vacation. Located just steps from beautiful Crescent Beach, it offers a great view of the pond, lawn, and tennis courts, plus comfy furnishings in spacious rooms!<br/><br/>Prepare to become addicted to our balcony, with its ultra-comfortable seating and dining space, great views, and balmy breezes. The birdwatcher in your group will settle in to a permanent post out here, binoculars and Peterson’s Guides in hand. Meanwhile, the social media hound will always be found out here updating Facebook and snapping photos on the phone. And everyone else will drift out to join them, drinks in hand, for hours of leisurely conversation and reminiscing!<br/><br/>The air is balmy here, tinged with salt spray, and the sky is huge. You’ll love stargazing from the balcony as much as you do watching the sunrise (always supposing you can possibly wake up that early after a fun-filled day in northeast Florida!). This is the vista you will remember long after you return home: the splash of the fountain in the pond, the green of the landscape, and the bright blue of the sky.<br/><br/>If air-conditioned comfort is more your style, step inside the sliding-glass doors and continue to enjoy the great view from the cool bliss of the living room at Colony Reef 16B! The huge flat-screen TV with cable and DVD player stands ready to entertain, while the soft couches and chairs encourage you to sink right in and close your eyes. The cool tiled floors feel great on those tired feet, and the tropical plants seem to make the whole room just a little cooler and more inviting! There is also a half bathroom.<br/><br/>Beyond the living room (with its stairs to the bedrooms and baths upstairs) is a pleasant little alcove containing a nouveau diner-style table with built-in seating. This charming booth is not only a great place to enjoy a family meal, it also doubles as a computer table (you have free wireless Internet at Colony Reef 16B) and a game center. Children have colored pictures here before their afternoon naps, guests have written postcards and spread out brochures of sightseeing attractions – it’s generally the command center of our condo! Something about the tucked-away feel and bright sunshine pouring in from the window.<br/><br/>To be closer to the action, there’s also a breakfast bar with snug chairs along the serving counter of the kitchen. You’ll appreciate how well stocked this kitchen is – we have filled the cupboards with dishes, glasses, utensils, and all manner of cookware so that you can prepare homemade feasts or quick meals-on-the-go. Stainless steel appliances and all the time-savers make your time in the kitchen more efficient, getting you back to the beach even faster!<br/><br/>At Colony Reef 16B, the master bedroom and guest bedroom are reversed from their usual order. We filled the larger room, with its en-suite bath, with enough beds to sleep 4 – a comfy queen-sized and a single with a trundle. There’s plenty of space in here for all the kids or for a couple with young children. And it’s so convenient to have an en-suite bath, especially this one with dual vanities.<br/><br/>The second bedroom also contains a queen-sized bed, and has a full bath to itself. (The downstairs of the condo is served by a half-bath.) Spotlessly clean, pleasantly decorated, and splashed with sunshine from big windows, both bedrooms are cozy and quiet, perfect for getting a great night’s sleep every time.<br/><br/>Feel free to use the washer and dryer in the condo throughout your visit. We have also provided fresh linens and towels for all the beds and baths. All the comforts of home, in a wonderful new setting!<br/><br/>Colony Reef is a gorgeous oceanfront resort offering everything from tennis courts to swimming pools (heated pool is indoor) and a playground. Just minutes from historic downtown St. Augustine, it sits on Crescent Beach, the most beautiful of all the area beaches, and offers a private boardwalk over the dunes right down to the sands. You’ll love this family friendly 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.
Why haven't these mattress's been thrown out?! Sadly to say but all 3 beds have the most uncomfortable beds and the pillows were so hard!!! We honestly would never rent a condo again unless we know the mattress are fairly new and of high quality, we were all so exhausted after staying there,...thank goodness only 4 nights and were so happy to be back in our own beds. We find the price you are charging for these units are way too high, sorry, will never be back, thanks for asking for our opinion, sorry it couldn't be positive!!!
This was a perfect vacation, the condo was exactly what I was looking for, top floor, end unit with direct beach view. The beach path was right next to the building as well for easy access. It was very comfortable and well kept. The property was family friendly with a special pool for little ones. Two small suggestions - need a new can opener and higher thread count on the sheets would have been nice. But overall the quality was spectacular.
What a wonderful condo! I have been in lots of condo but I believe this is the biggest yet. This unit had extra things available,ie. towels,etc and was very well stocked with kitchen supplies and utenils. It was nice having each room with it's own tv/dvd the grandkids really enjoyed it! We loved the adult pool, kiddie pool and the water park for the kids. They were well entertained. Beaches were not crowed, you felt very safe with how security was was just a great overall place for family and once again lots of family memories were made at Cinnamon Beach. Thanks for a great vacation !
Beautiful area of Florida enjoyed by all three generations ages 7yrs to 70yrs. Quiet, pristine area with short drive to St. Augustine for dining and shopping. A very relaxing and enjoyable week. We hope to come back next year. A few negatives: some cookware needs to be replaced, master bedroom had no mattress pad on bed, queen bed in 2nd bedroom had regular sized sheets not queen, fire/smoke alarm went off in middle of night on two nights lasted about 5 seconds(no fire or smoke).
This was the 4th property that we've rented in this complex and by far this was the best. I thank the owners for sharing this awesome condo. I'm sure we will return.
Beware when booking your golf, they sent us to the wrong location. Be sure they give you the correct information, they were not very helpful b ut golf was great
