Other St. Augustine Beach Properties condo description

This townhouse was newly remodeled from the floors up Jan through March of 2011 and is ready for new visitors. The Bird's Nest at Summerhouse has it's name from it's location adjacent to Matanzas State Park where the sanderlings nest along with many other sea and shorebirds. The oceanfront sights and sounds and the soothing blues, yellows and whites make for a restful retreat. Take your coffee to the patio and watch the pelicans and dolphins playing in the water, the dune bunnies munching their morning grasses, and the tortoises strutting out onto their sandy porches. After a beachwalk and shelling you can swim in the ocean or the lovely pool or dress and drive into St. Augustine and check out the historic museums or take a trolley ride around town.

The Bird's Nest has lots of details and amenities to be sure you are comfortable. Let us know if you want to fish, play tennis or racquetball so we can provide you with the equipment. The kitchen is fully equipped with attention to detail (the owner is a home economist) and there are lots of extras like nice linens, beach towels and chairs, movies, games and puzzels for your enjoyment. Special robes are provided for guests use.

Plan to relax and enjoy this beautiful setting that is the best of all worlds: near historic St. Augustine, next to a nature rich state park, and looking out to the surf from the Master Suite and over the Intracoastal at the spectacular sunsets from the guest bedroom!

Note that the location is also not far from Marineland (about 2.5 miles) that has afternoon dolphin shows and where the Creature from the Black Lagoon was filmed, The Alligator Farm where birds and alligators gather, Disney is about 1.5 hours away.

Keywords: Oceanfront at Summerhouse near Marineland, close to St. Augustine, free wifi, free long distance phone and hardwire internet, sunrise from your bed, heated pool, tennis courts, racquetball courts, children's playground

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2010

                  About the owner: As a retired University of Florida professor I have traveled the world and taught in several other countries as a Fulbright Scholar from the US State Dept. Having walked on many beaches in the world, I continue to marvel at how lovely this place is and find that it always renews the soul. The people of Thailand taught me the most about being a host and making sure that staying with them was a memorable experience. When I purchased this condo in late 2010, I wanted it to be a place that people would love and return to for relaxing vacations, so I've spent a good deal of time thinking about what was needed and how it would be used. I love to walk the beaches and read on the patio and cook up favorite things. I hope you will enjoy this place as much as I have.

                  Why the Owner Chose Other St. Augustine Beach Properties:
                  When I first saw Summerhouse at the end of Anastasia Island I was fascinated by the garden style property and the wonderful location near the State Park. I love walking around the end of the island with the Atlantic on one side and the quiet mouth of the Matanzas River on the other where all the birds gather. The shelling is great! The garden style property with winter heated pools also attracted me. St. Augustine is also a draw with it's history, art gallerys and lots of music in the local seaside restaurants.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  Staying at the Bird's Nest means seeing beautiful sunrises over the Atlantic out your bedroom window or from your living room patio, catching big golden moonrises on the full moon, seeing dolphins play in the surf, and enjoying all the amenities of home with a fully equipped kitchen, special linens and even fresh robes for your convenience. Beach towels and beach chairs are also provided. Movies, puzzles, games and books are in the unit along with DVD player and flat screen TVs. Each of the two bedrooms upstairs has its own bath and the half bath can accomodate those who sleep downstairs on the queen sleeper sofa. There is a desk for your laptop in the living room and another in the guest bedroom. High speed direct wire internet and free local and long distance phone calling is yours to use. One fishing rod and reel is available to the fisherman and tennis racquets to those who request them. Take a bucket and head out to the beach early for the best shelling!
