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. We have dedicated, private, and secure wireless Internet (WiFi). The Colony Reef Club community [public] WiFi is unsecured and often burdened with traffic (slow).
Just wanted to say we enjoyed our week in your condo! Thank you for all the "extras" - toys, towels, chairs, etc.
I believe we may have left ------------------------ in the left drawer in the hall bathroom. I understand the fee to return will be taken from our deposit [not always necessary for small items - Helen]. I had to move the shells and some of the breakable items out of reach from my 2 year old nephew. We put them back where we thought they went, but I'm sorry if they are in the wrong place [no problem - Helen].
Again, Thank you
Our family has been going to this condo for years. It represents everything a family could need and more for a great beach vacation. We love it, and will keep returning.
This was the best condo you could ask for and more. The owner gave it a special touch to meet our needs. Everything you need is supplied, towels, kitchen supplies, bath items, and little special surprises everywhere. I'm a reader and I loved the books. The ground floor was perfect for the kids. Best of all, it is a very clean condo. When we first got there, we put all the breakables somewhere safe, but the arrangements were beautiful. Thanks Ms. Helen for sharing with our family. I would like to come back soon.
This condo has everything you could want and more! Location can't be beat - oceanfront & close to the pool. Fully fully stocked - you name it Helen had thought of it! Books, toys, board games, toothpaste, soap, tide/bounce, boogie boards, beach towels, plates, toaster, wine glasses - so fully equipped! Helen went out of her way to make us feel comfortable & welcome. Washer/Dryer were very convenient. The town of St. Augustine is very interesting with lots to do or you can just relax & walk on the beach for miles & miles! Would highly recommend this condo!
Absolutely loved this condo, Everything you would need Helen has provided. Loved being on the ground floor, could go out front door to the very large pool, We watched box turtles munch on the grass in front of the condo. I would definitely recommend this condo for stays in St Augustine, We had a fabulous time!
this is the 2nd year in a row that I rented this condo for my family vacation. Perfect place for small children. It is so equipped. We had to bring nothing but our clothes!!! Even spices were available. My brothers family stayed in a different condo there and thought mine was soooo much better. Yes there are knichnacks. No problem. We immediately move them into a closet then put them back when leaving. Helen is very accommodating and pleasant. I plan to rent again with her year after year. Thank you Helen 😃
My family had a great time in St. Augustine and this rental made it happen. The location is perfect for church, beach and attractions. The view from the condo is amazing and the ground floor made it perfect for the beach and pools. It was our first time there and I know we will go back. The owner was a perfect host and everything we needed was there from beach towels to all the comforts of home. Thanks
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.
