Just what we needed...
Just what we needed...
We were in town for a long weekend/family wedding, and we were looking for a place close to other family where we could relax with our kids. This location lives up to it's billing. It is easy to get to, very close to the beach, the most affordable place I could find for a couple with a few kids, and it has all the amenities we needed. We look forward to returning for a longer stay in the future.

Year Purchased: 1995
About the owner: My late husband and I fell in love with the St. Augustine area when our oldest child went to Flager College many years ago. As a result of that, we have purchased and owned many properties in the town. When my husband passed away several years, I have sold many of the investment properties we owned, as it has been too hard for me to keep up with all the maintenance and work required. This is the only home I own in St. Augustine at the current time, and love the location, layout, and overall setting of this duplex. My son and daughter-in-law live on the other side of the home, and he takes care of it when I am not there. His occupation is property management, so he is on site for any questions or situation the occupants may have. I love being there, also, but still work up north at the beach in Delaware, so I can't be there all the time, which is why I choose to rent it for weeks that it would be vacant. I have never met a person yet who does not enjoy the St. Augustine area , with all it has to offer.
Why the Owner Chose See Ray Shores:
As I stated before, my late husband and I fell in love with the St. Augustine area when our oldest child came to Flager for college. We did a lot of camping here with the kids and have purchased many properties here throughout the years. 5 9th St. is the first property we purchased and the one I have decided to keep. Our oldest child never left the area and lives up the road in Jacksonville Beach. Our youngest, and his wife, live at 5 9th St. in unit B, and our daughter and her family live up north where I reside, but they are frequent visitors to St. Aug. There are many other people from Bethany Beach, DE, where I live, who also have fallen in love with the area when their kids have gone to school and have subsequently bought and own property in St. Augustine. I love my time there, as I have come to know other people there, and it is truly a 2nd home for me. The area has terrific shopping, and cultural events are occurring weekly there. There is a great Wed. Farmers' Festival only blocks from the home, right near the fishing pier. On Saturdays, there is large Farmer's Market on Anastasia Island, only minutes from the home, featuring all types of food, crafts, artwork, and more. If the weather is not good for the beach, the downtown area if full of history to learn about. Shopping on historic St. George St. is always fun, and you will never run out of new restaurants to try, whatever your budget may be. Once a month all the art galleries in town are open on Friday evenings, with wine and snacks, for all to enjoy- I believe it is the last Friday of each month. There are concerts throughout the year at the amphitheater, which is close-by and would be on the St. Augustine website for dates, times, etc. There is always a lot going on down here if you want something to do!
The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
What I love about St. Augustine is how convenient it is. It is an easy drive from where I live. It also offers so much variety for everyone as far as activities, whether you are a beach, golf, shopping, art or history buff. It's a great place to go sit on the large beach and feel totally alone on an island, or jump in the water with grandkids and enjoy the great sand and gentle waves, and lots of shallow water for little ones to play. Go fishing on the pier, or one of the many bridges in the area,or rent a boat and try fishing in one of the rivers or out in the ocean. Just be sure to check with a tackle shop about seasons- what is open, license requirements, etc. Walking and biking around are fun- not a lot of mountains to climb, and the weather is usually good. I love the variety of restaurants available, from Beach Cafe on A St., where you literally eat at the entrance to the beach, to O'Steen's, where they sell the shrimp they catch that day and it's the best shrimp I have ever had- you can tell by the lines at certain times waiting to get in- to more fancy restaurants, like Harry's downtown with live music, Creekside(over by Home Depot)- like an old fish camp, with live music and great food. I've been visiting a long time, and there are still numerous historic sites I haven't seen yet, so there is always something to learn about. Shopping and/or people watching on St. George St is another activity almost everyone enjoys- lots of characters to enjoy and a large variety of stores. It's a wonderful area to visit and experience.
