About Katrina Gaines

We bought our beach condo 15 years ago and we love it! We live in Orlando and we try to spend as much time there as we possibly can, we named it"Spare Tme"! I'm a first grade teacher and my husband is a developer, so on the weekends we really want to relax at the beach.The thing we love most about Summerhouse is its family atmosphere. We were looking for a condo that was not a high rise and low density... we found the perfect condo for us! I love how one side of our condo looks out over the intracostal and the other side we see the ocean. It's awesome to have water on both sides! It was important to us to have a corner unit, because we didn't want to feel closed in and we wanted a window on the side of our unit. My favorite thing to do at our beach condo is to open up the front door and back doors and to feel the AMAZING breeze we get... the cross ventilation is the best! It's for sure our "happy place" and our cozy home away from home!

Katrina Gaines purchased this condo in 2000

A Fabulous Few Days

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this condo for our family (ourselves and two children) for a few days this past week. It was fabulous! The location of the condo was great; it was a short walk through the grass/pool area to get to the beach. We were able to enjoy great restaurants that were close-by each night. The interior of the condo is beautiful; very beachy color schemes. The kitchen had everything we needed including a don't find that in every condo. We had plenty of seats in the living room and the balcony furniture was great. We could sit on the balcony to watch our children play ball in the yard. It was convenient to have a half-bath on the first floor too. The bedrooms were spacious especially the master; beds were great. The closets were huge for a condo. We loved having two full bathrooms upstairs so we could quickly get everyone showered before dinner. (The master shower is heavenly. Be careful with the water temperature though; there is a limited "warm" range as it is pretty cold or very hot water). The hall bathroom was a good size too (there didn't seem to be a problem with the water temperature in this shower). All-in-all, we had a great stay at this condo. We plan to return to this area in the future and we will definitely stay at this condo. It was fabulous!

Beautifully decorated beachfront condo

  • 5 of 5

The condo is well-located on a beautiful and uncrowded beach, a short drive from downtown Saint Augustine. Easy communication with owners and fast response to maintenance issues.

Beautiful place - hope to stay again again

  • 4 of 5

The condo is beautiful. The kitchen is equipped with anything you can imagine (and Katrina will answer any questions you may have). Plenty of towels, but be sure to bring your beach towels. The resort staff are very friendly. Most of the time we had 1 of the 4 heated pools to ourselves. The beach was wonderful and NOT crowded at all. At least 100 ft between people/groups. Bring bags for collecting shells - there is an abundance. We used Groupons for nearby restaurants and tourist attractions. O'loughlin Pub, 123 Burger House, Vinny' s Pizza, and Cruisers Grill are all highly recommended. The Lighthouse has a 10% off coupon online. The Alligator Farm is free for fireman and law enforcement with 30% off for your family.

We loved our trip and hope to stay at Summerhouse again next year.

The location was perfect for enjoying the beach and swimming pool. The beach was amazing, soft, white sand, uncrowned, one could walk for miles. All in all a very enjoyable stay.
