About me....good thought. I have moved a great deal in my life settling in the Jacksonville/St Augustine area about 24 years ago. I was brought here by a developer to sell new homes and help create a new community. I have done other communities since then. What fun. The friends I have made and the activities the area has to offer make for a perfect life. My family is elsewhere so I visit out of state often as well. I have been fortunate enough over the years to acquire rental properties. Seacrest 101 is my only personal short term rental. What a rewarding experiences it has been meeting and sharing my beach front condo with the many, many wonderful people who have vacationed with me. . I love being a part of the Seacrest 101 rental experience..... always a challenge and a joy to try to make it the best place ever.
Ellie Cuthrell purchased this condo in 2005
Being a Marine Corps junior, I had the privilege of living in tropical climates where I spent most of my growing up years around the ocean and water. Like so many of us, there is nothing like the smell, sound and feel of the ocean. I had always dreamed of enjoying something on the oceanfront, but never thought my dream would come true. Due to the luck of being at the right place at the right time, I sold another property and could purchase this special home. As well as the location to the beach, I appreciated the quiet of the Vilano Beach location to many accessible conveniences. While being constructed, I had the time and spent many hours trying to furnish it as I would want a vacation rental home to be. I wanted a beachy elegance where one could relax and enjoy, but feel the higher quality. Over the years, I have had many delighted renters, and hope you will become one of them.
Relax, Relax. Relax. Unbelievable sunrises and sunsets. Big backyard playground (surf and sand). Historical St Augustine minutes away. Fabulous restaurants quite near by. Grocery store within blocks. All types of sports (fishing, golf, tennis, canoeing, bird watching and the list goes on.), State parks near by. Come explore and see for yourself. You will love it.
The place was beautiful, Right on the water. Ellie was wonderful to work with. The unit was immaculate, the kitchen is well equipped and soap and papergoods are provided so you do not habve to run to the store right away. There is a grocery store when two miles and plenty of places to eat near by. We never had a bad meal. It is also 5 minutes away from Saint Augustine. So you will never run out of things to do. We had a magical family vacation!
First and foremost, Ellie is a perfect host. She is timely to response to questions and has all the right answers!! The condo has a great location, it comes equipped with everything a vacationer could want, and the view is magnificent.
There wasn't anything about this place that we would change....the decor/furniture was lovely. It made you feel like you were in your own home or someone's home, not a rental. The essentials and non-essentials were a delight (beach chairs, towels, bags, etc)....we had friends stay in another rental and their furniture was dirty and old....their rental had no beach towels or beach chairs....This rental has more than enough plates, glasses, towels, space, .... everything to make the stay perfect. It was clean when we arrived, it was quiet, it was safe, it is close to everything....we are definitely returning!!!
This was our third year at Seacrest 101. Ellie is the most hospitable host and the condo could not be more perfect! It is very clean, modern and there are places for your family or friends to gather and generous sized bedrooms for everyone to disperse for some private time. You can't get closer to the ocean as it is basically your backyard. The beautiful beach views from the large glass doors are amazing! The back patio is one of our favorite places to hang out and enjoy the ocean breezes. We frequent the nearby Publix which is within walking distance if you're not carrying ice cream! Many fond memories have been created here and our family is very grateful. We HIGHLY recommend!
We have been coming to the St. Augustine area for 14 years now, and this is the first time we stayed in the Vilano Beach area. We will definitely return! It was a wonderful, relaxing week for the two of us and our pup. Ellie's condo has everything you could need, very comfortable, and very clean. It was also nice that she had beach chairs and an umbrella for us to use. We set up our chairs and umbrella every morning, and did not leave until late in the afternoon. It was great to have our cocktails outside on the back deck enjoying the view and breeze from the ocean, then do some grilling on her electric grill. This was a great condo, and will definitely be back next year!
This is the 9th year staying in this Condo...feels like my own personal vacation home! Love the views and access to restaurants, stores, and downtown St. Augustine!
