Property description


WE ARE A SPECTACULAR DIRECT OCEAN FRONT 3-bedroom condo in Crescent Beach, FL (7990 A1A South, Sand Dollar I-406, St. Augustine, FL 32080) [JUST SOUTH OF ST. AUGUSTINE BEACH and Historic St. Augustine, North of Marineland] Beautifully renovated/decorated with 1,600 sq. feet of comfort and appointments. Newly installed floor to ceiling windows in the living room provide clear unobstructed views of the dunes, beach and ocean. You can hear the ocean and almost touch the pelicans that fly by our balcony. Not only does our unit have great ocean and beach views, but also unbelievable sunset inter-coastal views as our condo is located on a unique stretch of A1A that narrows as you travel south from St. Augustine. Easy to get to by plane or car, and I would think even by boat. Our unit has everything you could want at a beach location with many necessities provided such as coolers, beach towels, umbrellas, two beach chairs, and beach toys. We have many repeat guests. We update our unit regularly which includes TV's, appliances, linens and towels. We have UVerse with an upgraded channel menu (includes some premium movie channels such as Showtime) with fast access WIFI. We also have beautiful window treatments, including black out curtains in all of the bedrooms, to assist you with restful sleep.
Our Master BR overlooks the beach and ocean with balcony access and has a very comfortable king-sized bed and a separate bath, and is artfully decorated. Master also has large screen TV and DVD. All three bedrooms are carpeted. The other bedrooms also have cable TV and DVDs with a queen-sized bed and two twins. Living room overlooks the ocean with balcony access. The balcony is newly tiled and appointed with comfortable furniture & cushions for lounging with your coffee or drink, while enjoying direct ocean and beach views. Our unit has water views from each room.
Elsewhere in the condo new tile floors open into the living area, which has a sofa bed. There is an updated well equipped kitchen and appliances, with plenty of extras. Large washer/dryer room. Closet available with storage space for beach stuff. Very family oriented area and great for kids of all ages. Outstanding location for golf or fishing outings. Fourth floor unit (adjacent to elevator) with outstanding beach and ocean views and extraordinary sunset views over the inter-coastal waterway. Wi-fi internet access keeps you in touch.

Only minutes away from intriguing and historic St. Augustine, our nations oldest city. Just north of Marineland and close to Daytona, but without the crowds on the beach. Near restuarants, golfing, fishing, shopping and night life. Pool (recently redone and right off of the beach) and tennis on-site. Covered parking with elevator. Huge white sand beach steps from the condo with two access ramps. Excellent value on the beach. Our pricing is straightforward with no hidden or booking fees, amenity fees or other miscellaneous charges. Be careful of these hidden fees on other listings in the area.
*We accept personal checks, cashiers checks and money orders. Small service charge if you use the pay with credit card feature
*Fall & Winter Monthly rentals are available for approximately the cost of two non-summer rental weeks

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: Born in San Diego, but grew up in Pittsburgh, PA, I have lived for the past 25 years in Atlanta. I have always loved the ocean and beach and fell in love with the St. Augustine area some years ago. The beaches are second to none

Why the Owner Chose Crescent Beach:
Simply beautiful. This area of St. Augustine is an island which has the ocean and white sand beaches on the east and the intercoastal or Matanzes river on the west. You have wonderful views on either side and can see the sun rise and set at your leisure. We love the beach and the location and the water here is very clean with nice waves. A1A is the road in front of our complex so you have easy access north or south, and I95 is nearby for travel by car in any direction. Our property is within very close proximity to downtown St. Augustine which is lovely and of course historic. We are also very accessible to airports in Jacksonville, Daytona and Orlando.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
All the benefits of a wonderful beach located nearby major attractions. We take the time to appoint, stock and keep our condo fresh and updated. We do whatever is needed to keep our unit very comfortable and liveable. For example, this gives you the flexibility to eat out at wonderful nearby resturants or cook in using our well equiped kitchen. We also have a new washer and dryer so if you have to do luandry, at least you are doing so with confidence.
