St. Augustine Beach & Tennis Club condo description
Bright, airy, comfortable, and attractive, this two bedroom/two bath condo provides a relaxing retreat from the wear and tear of daily life. Lying in bed in the master bedroom or sitting on the couch in the living room, you will have a view of the wide Atlantic and be able to hear its restful music. (Isn’t there just something about listening to the waves that puts the troubles in life in perspective?) Polywood bistro table and Adirondack chairs, a two/three person glider, and a comfortable rocker on the wide, north-facing balcony furnish a shady retreat on which to sit and sip coffee or sodas while watching the kids frolic in the pools, the dolphins play with each other, or the sea gulls chase the shrimp boats.
On rainy days, guests can watch DVD’s in the master bedroom or in the living room. A large plasma TV hangs on the wall across from the bed in the master, which is a favorite feature for some of our guests. The living room also features a 42 inch plasma TV for your entertainment desires. The master and living rooms both have cable TV and we now offer DSL internet at no extra charge for those who like to stay connected!
The kitchen comes fully equipped with coffee maker, two sizes of George Foreman grill, mixer, crock pot, waffle maker, cookware, bakeware, glassware, dinner service and flatware for those who enjoy (gasp!) actually cooking on their holidays. (I do.) Thanksgiving and Christmas guests will even find a turkey roaster to prepare their holiday meals. You’ll also find a small laundry room inside the unit with washer/dryer/ironing board/iron for your convenience. Spacious closets allow you to unpack and put away the suitcases so you don’t spend your vacation tripping over STUFF!
Beach chairs, beach umbrella, and beach towels are all provided so that you don’t have to pack the farm when you travel. We have also left a small collection of pastimes for your enjoyment. Boogie boards, skim board, beach toys, kites, etc are also kept in the closet on the balcony. Of course, it does happen that our guests forget what they brought and what was already in the condo so sometimes those items walk away. Though we can’t promise they’re still there, all of these items were in the condo last time we visited. And, of course, all linens for bed and bath are provided. Due to fire codes, we are no longer able to provide a barbecue grill for our guests to use on the balcony. We apologize for the inconvenience. This is out of our control.
This unit is kept to a high standard of cleanliness. When you walk in the door it should both look and smell clean. This is a hot button for us! When we vacation, we don’t want to move into someone else’s dirt nor do we want our guests to have that kind of negative experience. And because the owner is allergic to molds, the housekeeper is very careful to attack dusts, molds, and mustiness that sometimes accompanies beach properties. This unit was completely repainted in fall of 2011. Towels, sheets, dishes, glasses, most rugs, some window coverings, and two televisions have just been replaced, along with the balcony furniture.. Other new furnishings have also been added. This unit is as immaculate as we can keep it considering the steady stream of guests coming through the door!
The complex in which this condo is located, St. Augustine Beach and Tennis Condos, is an ocean front complex just 2/10 of a mile from the famous Oasis Grille. The wide beach is only 300 feet from the condo across a private, coded access boardwalk. It is 3/10 of a mile to Winn Dixie and half a mile to the Publix grocery store. The historic district is only five miles away; the pier is 2 miles away. A third floor unit with access to two elevators, luggage carts, and grocery baskets, it is easy entry and exit. The homeowner’s association rules are flexible enough to allow guests to have a good time while being stringent enough to protect their safety. It has a reputation for being family friendly rather than for attracting the party crowd. You will find the complex clean, well maintained, and attractive with its two large pools.
As owners want our guests to have wonderful vacation experiences. To that end, we are continually striving to make our condo a more and more enjoyable vacation destination. We hope returning guests will appreciate and enjoy the new surprises they find almost every year! Contact us with any questions. We do our best to make staying with us a pleasure which you will want to repeat year after year!

3rd return to this condo
3rd return to this condo
This has almost become an annual retreat for our family. The condo is very nicely furnished and cleanly maintained. My hubby and I get the twin beds and my sis and her hubby get the master bedroom. I find the beds to be very comfortable with no problem at all falling asleep, After visiting so many years you would think we would run out of things to do but we have returned to some of our favorite places (Fort Mantanzas which has a great place to picnic and the old town) and tried several new places to eat. Sunset Grill is recommended as is Red Frog and McToads on A1A. Both are within 7 minutes from the condo. We wished we had found Red Frog earlier in our visit. Hitting it for breakfast on our way out in the morning. Front bathroom has been upgraded since our last visit as have some of the other furnishings. You will love sitting on the balcony's new furniture enjoying the view. Our week has been extremely breezy but it didn't stop us from sitting out and it was a nice change from South Carolina's chillier weather. Dealing with Pat is just like dealing with my own sister. Very accommodating and easy to communicate with. We have yet to be disappointed with our St. Augustine experience. Please try it, you will be glad you did.

Owner response: Thank you for the nice review, Paulette. I know folks will enjoy hearing about more nearby restaurants worth trying! We're happy you folks enjoyed the new balcony furnishings. It's my favorite spot in the condo. Sorry about the management snafu with the painting while you were there. We appreciate your patience and hope you will come back to Saint Augustine time and again. Pat and Stacy
We stayed a week at this unit and found it to be extremely well cared for, well supplied, and honestly attractive as represented on the website. There is a new bistro table on the balcony, allowing for a better view above the railings. It is Very clean and fresh, with a comfortable queen bed and furniture. The glider on the balcony is a favorite spot to rest and restore the soul. This was our 2nd visit to Pat's condo and we love the location and view of the ocean, as well as the sound of the breezes rustling through the palm trees just off the balcony. It's in a convenient area, close to great beach restaurants, a farmer's market on Saturday at the amphitheater, and another on Wednesday at the Pier. This is a good spot to enjoy a beach atmosphere, but still close enough to enjoy the sights and restaurants in the City. The Chianti Room at Pizza Alley is one of our favorites. There is are two nice grocery stores within minutes of the condo. The Owners are always responsive and considerate of their guests' comfort and needs. Hope to return again and again!

Owner response: We're appreciative of your return visits and of this nice review, especially given that both of your visits happened to hit at times when construction was ongoing. Thank you for your patience! We are happy you enjoy the new balcony furniture since we feel it has made our balcony a most enjoyable place to relax. Perhaps we will see you next fall when we are in America ourselves.
A very nice stay!
A very nice stay!
I had a wonderful stay at the beach condo owned by Pat Dexter. The condo was in tip top shape and very clean. Furnishings were comfortable and complete. I especially enjoyed the large balcony with rocker, high top table for outdoor eating and glider. What a great place to enjoy a glass of wine and the view cannot be beat. Especially excellent was in working with Pat. She's a lovely person who feels like a friend very quickly. We communicated often and she went out of her way to accommodate and ensure my stay was special. Can't wait to stay again, next year,!

Annual Visit!Guest comment entered by owner
It is with great sadness that I am packing to leave and my vacation time at your fabulous condo is ending. :(. I had an excellent time and everything was just perfect for my stay. I am impressed again how well the condo is kept, cleaned and furnished. I have decided to make your condo a annual visit as part of my vacation plans! I'm thinking about next year and would probably target a week that is 3 weeks earlier.....maybe 1 or 2 weeks before Memorial Day weekend. Let me know when you think I should make the move to secure that time for next year. Thanks so much Pat for everything. It was a pleasure doing business with you and getting to know you.

Great Summer Vacations
Great Summer Vacations
We have stayed in this condo 2 times (summer 2012 and summer 2013)and we are coming back next years too. One reason is very convenient location with 5 min walk to beautiful beach(if you wish you can watch the same beach from the balcony 24/7).On the way to the beach you may jump to one of the 2 pools. The second reason is that within 0.5 mile you will do all your groceries.If your wallet has several compartments, than "sky is the limit".10 minutes drive will take you to old town St.Agustin with all its attractions. Third reason is great hospitality of the condo's owners. Even remotely, they were able to secure the best imaginable care turning our 2 stays into a "pure pleasure" Victor k.

Very nice, cosy , pretty and functional apartement. Super clean with everything you need (towels, dishes...).The view from the balcony is awesome. Very close to the beach and to the lovely city of Saint augustine. The owners are really nice and it was really easy to communicate : they answered all our questions very quickly. We all really enjoyed our stay. I really recommend to rent this apartment !! Appartement tres propre, joliment decore, agreable et fonctionnel avec tout ce qu'il faut (serviettes, plats, appareils de cuisine...). La vue sur la mer depuis le balcon est incroyable et Saint Augustine est une ville magnifique. C'etait super !!!!!!

Owner response: We are so happy you enjoyed your stay! The fall is a perfect time at the beach. We, too, love the quietness at that season. Thanks for taking the time to post a nice review. We welcome you back any time!
There is always hesitation in spending money on a place never seen, let alone an area we've never been to. The moment the door opened to this 2 bedroom condo my hesitation was washed away. It was absolutely perfect!!! Everything we needed, beach towels, chairs, dishes, etc., etc. was provided. It is nicely decorated and cozy. We could sit on the patio and look at the ocean while enjoying our morning coffee. My father would go and buy the local paper downstairs and then go sit on the benches right at the beach. It is also a convenient drive to historic St. Augustine (7 miles I think). You can also get a flat fee taxi from the condo into town for $12.00. Renting from Pat was also easy. We spoke with her on the phone and email correspondence. We sent our check in and just before our trip we were emailed all the necessary things needed. She also sent an email after we arrived making sure all was ok. And it was better than ok, clean, cute, cozy and on the beach! It was a great week (and a great price) and we will absolutely rent this condo again!

Owner response: Erin, thanks so much for the nice review. I loved hearing your response when you opened the door and will pass on to our housekeeper the nice impression she leaves by her cleaning! And I had no idea you could get a flat fee taxi into town- helpful for future guests. That might be cheaper than parking and easier than finding a place to do it. We appreciated your gentle use of our condo and hope that you and your family will come back time and again.
What a wonderful trip! The condo was exactly as described,clean, beautiful view, confortable and furnished with lots of extras not usually found in a rental. The grounds are well kept giving you an extra nice view when you look out to the beach. As for Pat, the owner, she is the nicest person and communicated with me for a week and answered all questions promptly. She ends up feeling like your best friend. I would and have recommended this condo to others. Our favorite other than the beach was a tour of the old town of St. Augustine with all the history and beauty the town holds. It was the most relaxing place I've ever been and will be planning to return soon.

Owner response: Thank you so much for taking time to write such a kind review. We loved having such thoughtful guests as you folks were! When we are fortunate enough to go to our condo, we feel it's a haven so hopefully it is that love that passes on to our guests. We hope you'll be back soon! The old town is lovely at Christmas, too, and the complex is so quiet at that season! Thank you again. Pat and Stacy
fabulous once again
fabulous once again
Once again, I had an incredible visit to my favorite spot on St Augustine Beach. The improvements were great, the place is spotless and well appointed and the location could not be better. The view and proximity of the the beach is superb. Dealing with Pat is like dealing with an old friend who is acutely aware of your every need. I love my daily beach walks and sitting on the porch watching the ocean at the end of the day. There are load of restaurants, bars, and sites nearby. I particularly enjoy going to the Matazanas Innlet Bar and Restaurant in the afternoon to sit on their outdoor deck by the water and watch the sun go down. It is the kind of place that is frequented by locals and the seafood is regularly served in a bucket. I am looking forward to my next visit.

About the owner: We are missionaries in Asia and have a large family- 8 children, 1 granddaughter and 1 grandson! We love the Lord Jesus, God's Word, and His creation. It is our pleausre to serve Him together. We have our feet firmly planted in two continents with one foot in Asia and the other in America since we have one daughter adopted from China, three Asian daughters-in-law and we are Americans. We've decided that until we get to Heaven our hearts will never be in just one place again!
Why the Owner Chose St. Augustine Beach & Tennis Club:
When our parents passed away a few years ago, we found ourselves with no place to stay when we visit America, so we used our inheritances from them to purchase this home away from home. This particular condo captured us because of the wonderful view and the aesthetically pleasing recent renovations. It provides all the comforts of home for us when we get to come to the states and by renting it to guests between times, we are able to pay the high costs of maintaining it. We consider it a very special gift from our parents, who always took such good care of us and continue to do so even after they're gone, through this wonderful provision. This place is a haven for our family, as we hope it will be to our guests.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We love lying in the bed and looking at and listening to the beautiful ocean. Seeing blue skies and the ocean every day is just wonderful after months of white/gray smog filled skies and city noises! You may take fresh air and clean smells for granted but we don't! We enjoy the comfortable furnishings which are attractive but uncluttered. Our kids love the wide open spaces, running on the strand, swimming in the pools,and enjoying God's creation. The condo itself and the entire complex is well maintained, which always makes our time there especially pleasant!
