Seaside at Anastasia condo description

'THE SAND BUCKET' at Seaside at Anastasia offers you a relaxing cottage-style getaway to enjoy the beauty of St. Augustine Beach. The 3 bedroom, 2 bath condo is situated on the third floor with sweeping views of the lake, pool, clubhouse and ocean. All the comforts of home are here: queen size beds in each bedroom and a queen size sleeper; flat screen TV's in each bedroom, 2 bathrooms, fully equipped kitchen, and your own washer and dryer. Cable TV and free high speed internet are provided for your entertainment.

You will be located directly across the street from the beach, the fishing pier and spray play park for children. Restaurants, shops, and parks are within walking distance and it's a short 4-mile drive to the downtown St. Augustine historic district.
St. Augustine beach has 40 plus miles of beautiful beach and all the beach gear you will need is in the condo: chairs, sand toys, beach towels, umbrellas, as well as pool noodles if you decide to spend a few hours at the pool. We've even included 2 adult bikes for you to tour the Island as well as a pack n' play, two children's feeding chairs, and a safety gate for the little ones traveling with you. At the end of the day, relax on the screened balcony and enjoy the peaceful setting.


Guest Review
'The condominium was everything and more than advertised. It was well furnished, very nicely decorated and very clean. The grounds, including the exercise and pool areas, were no less well-cared for. There is a binder of local restaurants and attractions, as well as a guest book of experiences in the condo. Each proved to be great resources for us when making decisions about where to eat, or what sites we may find interesting. The two adult bicycles provided with the condo were more than adequate for us to ride into old town as well. The attention to detail at this condo shows that someone is paying attention, and is providing the means for the experience to continue to be great the next time.' . . . . Rick, September, 2014

                  Great Location, across from St. Augustine pier... walk and bike everywhere... Enjoy pier events, festivals, music, fishing, fireworks on New Years Eve. Lots of parks for small children and new skateboard park for older children/adults within close proximity. Several great restaurants and small stores with beach apparel, gifts, etc. are within walking distance. A short 5-8 minute walk puts you on the beach of Anastasia State Park. Historic St. Augustine is a five minute drive away. Grocery stores are 2-4 miles away depending on your preference. Two outlet malls approximately 16 miles from condo.

                  There are 41 miles of beautiful coastline with eight beachfront parks. Vehicular traffic is allowed on 16 miles of the sandy beach which is free of charge October thru February and paid access March thru September.

                  Nights of Lights runs from mid-November thru January 31 during which time the historic area is ablaze with twinkling lights. National Geographic Magazine (Dec. 2011) ranked St. Augustine as 'one of the top 10 places to see holiday lights'. In 2009, AAA ranked it in their '12 Favorite Places to find the holiday spirit in the USA and Canada'.

                  Livability.com (May, 2012) listed St. Augustine in their 'Top 10 Cities for Historic Preservation' with 37 properties on the National Register of Historic Places.

                  Forbes Magazine (April, 2012) listed St. Augustine as one of 10 of the prettiest towns in America.

                  SmartMoney (October, 2010) listed St. Augustine on their list of 'The New Best Places to Retire'.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2010

                  Why the Owner Chose Seaside at Anastasia:
                  After spending several vacations in the St. Augustine area when our children were younger we decided to buy here so that our grandchildren could enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of St. Augustine Beach. We vacationed in Seaside at Anastasia prior to purchasing our unit and soon realized this is the 'best location on the island'. The beach across from our condo is a pedestrian only beach, yet we are a short distance from the 'A' street beach ramp where you can drive for 16 miles South on the sand.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  St. Augustine is a wonderful location for a family vacation, beach Forty-plus miles of uncrowded beaches, no traffic jams, no high rise hotels (3 story limit), plenty of family style restaurants and venues for entertainment of all ages make for a relaxing vacation at the beach. Our condo offers some of the best ocean views that only a select number of third floor units have. We chose our condo based on the proximity to the pier and yet in a quieter area of the beach with plenty to do within walking distance.
