My husband, daughter and I spent one of our best vacations at the Hanson's condo! The location is perfect. We love to be close to things, but not too close! Everything is within 10 miles that we wanted to do. First, the beach at this condo is perfect. We have vacationed at many beaches and we agreed this was the best. It is a hidden gem! The sand is very fine, soft and clean. People take great pains to keep the beach clean. The water is so cool and felt wonderful on hot August days. Every morning collecting shells was an adventure.
The condo was comfy and very clean. I have a difficult time in different beds, and I slept very well here! I appreciated that much thought went into comfort with the furniture, the bedding, the amenties and the provisions. We could not have asked for a nicer place to spend some down time.
Thank you Shirley for the recommendations you made for us to have dinner. We loved South Beach Grill, Mango Mangos, Saltwater Cowboy and several others. Of course having a college age daughter we hit the outlet malls and they were great. The fact that both are across the road from each other was great. We visited Castillo de San Marcos and loved it. We visited several other locations, but absolutely enjoyed our day that we rented a pontoon from Devil's Elbow on the intercoastal waterway. We saw manta ray and many, many dolphin. We were so disappointed that we did not see a manatee....but that will be for next time! By renting the pontoon we were able to visit Fort Mantanzas on our own and we went the other direction all the way to the Bridge of Lions. It was a perfect day with a picnic and family on a quiet waterway.
Thanks again to Shirley for her advice, for sharing her home and sharing the wonderful experience of St. Augustine!
