My husband and I needed to rent a condo while our house was being built in the area. We had a hard time finding the ideal condo that allowed pets. Well, Sanddollar Retreat met our needs and it was simply delightful. It's close to beautiful old-world St. Augustine, has private pristine beach access, a nice sized fenced-in backyard for pets, it's within walking distance to the infamous Cap's on the Water restaurant, a 5 min. drive to Publix and more. The Landlords were very generous in supplying all basic toiletries, cooking utensils, laundry detergent, etc. The spacious one car garage had beach accessories/towels for our use. The inside decor is tastefully done and is comfortable. We would rent this condo again, it was the perfect vacation rental for us!

I rented for a long Memorial Day weekend. The arrival was easier than a hotel as the property manager met me at the condo which had been opened that morning for our convenience. It was as advertised and met our needs perfectly. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen modern and well stocked. Our host allowed us to use the beach club and that was just the icing on the cake. We will return in the future.

My family just spent a wonderful week at this rental and we have nothing but great things to say. The location was great, the accommodations were on spot, and most of all the hospitality of Anne was the cherry on top to this wonderful vacation. We will be back for sure.
