                  Owner info

                  About the owner: Bill and I are privileged to share this wonderful family heirloom that is perched over the ocean and under the clouds! We are humbled and inspired by our guests' unsolicited stellar reviews, which confirm that the jewel in our care is meant to be shared. We live in nearby Gainesville and insure that a welcoming home is prepared for each special guest. We celebrate over 40 years of marriage and are convinced that our most memorable, rejuvenating moments have been here, at the finest Penthouse Paradise!

                  Why the Owner Chose St. Augustine:
                  Mom hand-picked this prime top and center location pre-construction, from the plans! She and Dad researched the area for 25 years, coming on weekends to find the best private, undisturbed location on the most pristine beach--and it's only 15 minutes to charming St. Augustine!

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  The lofty, breathtaking ocean, sunrise, sunset, treetop views, uninterrupted, 180 degrees on both east and west balconies are phenomenal! Fresh sea breezes under the clouds are privately yours on top of the world in this penthouse 4th floor condo built high on a dune! Enjoy sky-high living on the 235 sq ft oceanfront balcony furnished with Cay Sal sling chair dining and cushioned chaise lounges. Romantic shrimp boat lights look like stars on the night horizon; moon and stars seem so close you could reach out and touch them! Come for quiet, solitary night swimming in the aqua-lighted pool below to the not-so-distant roar of ocean waves and rustling palm branches. In the morning, roll the beach bicycles down the private, gated boardwalk and ride the coast with your companion for miles...cozy, private paradise every time!
