About Kathy Gerstner

We are both originally from the midwest but are currently ministering at a church in Arizona. We find the desert to be beautiful, but we miss the ocean and look forward to being back near the coast when we retire!

Kathy Gerstner purchased this condo in 2010

Why Kathy Gerstner chose Northeast Florida

We chose to buy this condo as a potential retirement home because we love the benefits of being on the East coast as well as the small town atmosphere of Fernandina Beach.

What makes this condo unique

We fell in love with this condo when we walked through the front door and immediately saw the palm trees and the ocean. I am still struck by it every time I open the front door! We also love that the unit itself is so spacious.

Perfect beachfront escape A+++

  • 5 of 5

My Mom, Aunt, and I spent five blissful nights at Terraces at Beachside unit #304 for a girls getaway and had an amazing time. We have stayed at Terraces before and wont stay anywhere else in AI / Fernandina area. The building and condo are very clean. We LOVE the expansive ocean views (high above the dunes on the 3rd floor), comfortable and well equipped condos, and proximity to sandy bottoms casual restaurant (yum!) and downtown (Centre St). We especially loved the balcony/amazing water views from every room, comfy living room furniture (a leather recliner for each of us!), fluffy towels, tvs in each room, updated decor, and umbrella/chair service at the beach (stress free!) In town, we recommend the Patio Place (to die for sweet or savory crepes!), Peppers, Brett's, and Karibo Cafe. And the beach creek boat tour with pajama dave is the best ever-so entertaining and we saw dolphins and Cumberland Island horses. Can't wait to return! Thank you for sharing your home with us!

39th Anniversary Stay

  • 5 of 5

As other reviewers have stated, the location was perfect. The condo was well equipped with all things required for a comfortable stay and clean enough to meet the highest standards of the pickiest germaphobes. Proximity to dining and historic downtown shopping was ideal. And of course the beach was fantastic.

We always bring our own chairs and umbrella to Florida when we go (usually twice a year) but it was nice to be able to leave them in the car and utilize those provided and set up on the beach on a daily basis. I'm all for lugging less to and fro.

Our favorite seafood dining (quality of the food and unpretentious facility) was Timoti's Seafood, in the historic district. Ate there 3 nights and it was outstanding every night. Best fried shrimp, bar none.

Kathy was excellent and easy to work with. We would definitely recommend this condo to all and would love to stay there again in the future.

Awesome👌👌👌Outstanding❤️❤️❤️ Beautiful😊😊

  • 5 of 5

This Condo was outstanding !! I usually stay at the seaside inn because we have a sweet little , well behaved dog. I wish the condo would allow a pet with a large deposit just to insure that no one brings an unruly pet in that causes damage. However, this property is awesome!! Not just the location, which is right on the beach and next to a restaurant/bar, but is is a very clean and cozy place to stay. We will stay here anytime we are not traveling with our dog!! Thanks for all the extras that you provided, you are a very thoughtful renter. We did not use much, but just knowing that it was there was comforting. Thank You!!! The washer and dryer was a wonderful plus 😊
