About Ruth and Sam Sawyer

Sam grew up in Georgia, I grew up in Florida. This year we will have been married 57 wonderful years. We have two children and four grandchildren who are the joy of our lives. We also enjoy meeting the guests who rent our condo in St. Augustine Beach. Many of them return year after year and have become friends.

Ruth and Sam Sawyer purchased this Condo in 1999

Why Ruth and Sam Sawyer chose Butler Beach

We chose this property after many years of looking at condos up and down the beach. It was one of the newer buildings, very close to the beach and beach pool, and even though it was not looking down on the beach, it had a wonderful ocean view. Since it is on the end of the building nearest the ocean, it has an extra window which makes it light and airy. The balcony with its southern exposure is a great place to read and relax; watch the beautiful sunrise or see the moon and stars at night. It was our special getaway for a number of years while we were working and the grandchildren were not yet old enough to be involved in all the weekend sports. When they started growing up and getting involved with other activities we decided to rent it to others so they could enjoy it as we have. It is still a wonderful, beautiful, and special place to us!

What makes this Condo unique

St. Augustine Beach is 10 minutes from St. Augustine, the nation's oldest city. It is so much fun to go downtown, ride the trolley, walk the old streets and visit the beautiful churches, and see the many historical sites like the old fort, the Bridge of Lions, and the wonderful local restaurants. The beach is about 3 minutes from the condo; past the beach pool, across the dune walkway to a beautiful white sandy beach. The wide beach is a great beach for walking or just sun bathing, playing games or catching up on reading and, especially, relaxing with friends, children and grandchildren!.

                                                              Our stay at this condo was excellent. It was so clean and my family felt very comfortable...like we were at home. Sam and Ruth were such a pleasure to talk to. They were very kind, patient and flexible with us as we had a flat tire on the way to Florida which delayed our arrival by several hours. They had a beautiful bowl of fresh fruit and snacks for us when we arrived. The beds and sheets were so soft and comfortable. The complex was beautifully kept. My family had a wonderful experience at this condo and complex. Sam and Ruth were awesome! I hope we are able to rent this condo again next summer.

                                                              Wonderful stay

                                                              The condo was as good as advertised. The beautiful beach is a short walk away. The owners are very detail oriented people and even met us at the condo upon our arrival to show us around. We would return in a heartbeat!

                                                              For the past 19 years, my family has traveled to St. Augustine for our spring break vacation. We have always stayed at Ocean Village Club and have rented various units. This year, we decided to book through VRBO and were given the privilege to book Ruth and Sam's gorgeous condo. From the moment we booked until the day we left, our experience was nothing short of amazing. The unit is clean, updated and well maintained. All of the amenities that were needed were provided including beach towels, sand toys, beach chairs and other games for the kids. Sam and Ruth made sure that everything was perfect and in place before our arrival. They left us a bowl of fresh fruit and other snacks upon our arrival and even checked on us during the week. This was by far one of the nicest units we have stayed in and the owners hospitality made our vacation memorable! We look forward to booking this unit again! I would highly recommend renting this unit. The location and view is also perfect :)

                                                              We recently stayed in this lovely, well appointed condo and look forward to returning!!

                                                              The owners, Ruth and Sam are a delightful couple, really enjoyed meeting them! It is evident that they have made every effort to create a warm and inviting place to stay and they have succeeded in every way!! The kitchen is well equipped, the furniture is not only attractive but very comfortable......most importantly....the condo is CLEAN!!! Thank you Ruth and Sam for your hospitality!!

                                                              Best ever VRBO stay!

                                                              Ruth and Sam have a lovely condo and provided all the comforts of home. Everything we needed to make our stay perfect. It was by far the best VRBO experience I've had and would definitely return.
