About the owner: Joe ( retired Jacksonville Fire Chief over 34 years) and wife, Sally (homemaker/mother of 5), have been spending summer vacations with our children at Summerhouse for over 25 years. We purchased our first Summerhouse condo in 1999, sold it in 2008 and bought our current unit 165 a month later. We love Summerhouse! The location is on one of the most beautiful white sandy beaches, surrounded by history, private homes, bird sanctuary. Our children are now bringing their children and claim it as their favorite beach vacation.
Why the Owner Chose St. Augustine: As young parents, we chose St. Augustine as our place to vacation because of the family oriented activities, beaching, walking, fishing, surfing, swimming. Restaurants are plenty and offer a variety of styles to choose from. Walking in the 'old city' is always relaxing and pleasant to the eyes. Now that we are grandparents, we still love the beach, the walks, visiting the 'old city' and the many fine restaurants with great entertainment...and there is always the beauty of God's awesome creation, the ocean. We never get enough of the clean surroundings here, the flowers, birds,wildlife... just beautiful.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: Summerhouse is family oriented, with 4 heated pools, 6 tennis courts, basketball courts, shuffle board, racquetball, play yard, grill area. Surfing (board rentals nearby), surf fishing, kayaking, canoeing, etc. is enjoyed. The Intercoastal Waterway is to the west of us, a walk away. Boat storage available onsite. Old city, St. Augustine, is only 20 minutes away and is a wonderful place to spend an evening or daytrip. Marineland is 10 minutes away, Orlando Disney World can be done in a day trip from our condo! Or do as we do....spend the whole week at the beach, planning an evening dinner date at one of the great restaurants in St. Augustine, near the Fort.
