WIRELESS INTERNET, UPGRADES GALORE
Our direct oceanfront, extensively remodeled condo is one of the nicest in the St. Augustine Ocean and Racquet Resort, and we just continue to improve it! In-condo WiFi, comfy furniture and beds. We most recently updated our bathrooms in 2011 with a glassed-in shower in the master bath and a deep-soaking tub in the guest bath.

This ground-floor, direct oceanfront unit is extremely private, with very little foot traffic in front of the back patio, which looks out on a common grassy area with the dunes and ocean directly beyond. The view is of marsh and dunes. Our dunes offer a protective buffer and a peaceful view as well. The common area between our patio and the dunes is carefully maintained by the complex. It's literally only steps to boardwalk and the ocean (2 minute walk, max) in a complex that's gated and secure. Our ground floor location affords easy access to the beach, and makes loading and unloading supplies a breeze -- no steps or elevators to worry about. Approximately 1/2 mile to Publix plaza (supermarket, salons, restaurants, etc); we are close to all beach restaurants and only 10-15 minutes to the historic city sites in Old St. Augustine.

Our unit features 16 x 16 tiled floors throughout,stainless steel appliances,stylish and comfortable furniture, updated vanities in bathrooms with solid-surface countertops and tumbled marble countertops in kitchen. Sleeps six total, with new (2015) plush queen bed in master, two newer Sealy plush twin beds in second bedroom, and a sofa bed in the living room.

St. Augustine Beach is maintained by the city and always pristine, unlike some other areas nearby. Pride of ownership is clear throughout the complex. We ask only that guests treat our unit as they would their own property, gently and with care, as we have. We'd love to have you as our guests! We're Sarah and Chad of Gainesville, Florida, and we have owned our condo for 12 years. Living just two hours away, we get over a lot to check on things and make sure all is well and everything is spotless and in good repair. For more info, please call or email us for most up to date availability.

We promise you will love St. Augustine Beach and will be amazed at the quality, uniqueness and style of our unit, not to mention the privacy and proximity to the beach....and the famous old city of St. Augustine, with all it's charm and many attractions.

We're also on Facebook! Use search words ChadandSarahsCondo, St. Augustine.

Please note that we do not use the new VRBO/Homeaway book-it-now feature (which adds to your cost and limits our ability to directly communicate with you) so if our condo piques your interest, please call or email us directly. We and our on-site property managers in the resort are always available to assist if you have any issues and we pride ourselves on accessibility and customer service. We ask only that you let us or our our managers know right away if you have any issues or concerns.

St. Augustine Beach is maintained by the city and always pristine, unlike some other areas nearby. Pride of ownership is clear throughout the Ocean and Racquet Resort complex and we ask only that guests treat our unit as they would their own property, gently and with care, as we have. We work closely with the onsite management team to ensure your comfort and satisfaction. We appreciate your consideration and would love to have you as our guests. We're Sarah and Chad of Gainesville, Florida, and we have owned our condo for 14 years. Living just two hours away, we get over a lot to check on things and make sure all is well and to verify that everything is spotless and in good repair. We enjoy the laid-back atmosphere of the beach and appreciate how special this part of Florida is, having lived in the area for many years. St. Augustine Beach and the historic city of St. Augustine offer something for everyone -- great restaurants and plenty to see and do, including fishing, world class golf, shopping and so much more. For more info, please call or email us for most up to date availability.

Other Activities: shopping, kayaking, boating, shelling, parasailing, health/beauty spa, miniature golf, shuffleboard.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: My husband, Chad, and I treasure our condo at St. Augustine Beach. It's hard for us to believe we have owned it now for 12 years, but each year brings new memories as our family grows. We've been at the beach when it's sunny, when its hotter than Hades, when it's cool and when it's flat out cold; we've been when it's windy and rainy and even a little flooded after a heavy storm...but we can tell you honestly that for us, there is never a bad day at the beach. Therefore, whenever we can get away from our jobs, we drive over from our home in Gainesville for as much restoration and renewal as our schedules will allow. The beach is so good for that! Our condo has everything you should need and more to feel comfortable and at home, including WiFi, cable TV, DVD player and plenty of good books to read. Our VRBO business has been great and we now see people year after year who experience the beauty of our place and 'our beach' and make plans to come back. Please keep us in mind as you're considering where to take your next vacation. We value your time, your business and your support and it genuinely makes us feel good to be able to share this part of the world with others who are 'locals' or out-of-towners experiencing Florida for the first time. Enjoy!

Why the Owner Chose Saint Augustine Beach, FL, USA:
I've lived in Florida all my life and have always loved the beach. My husband, a native Utahan, has also lived in this state for many years. We like St. Augustine because of its proximity to Gainesville, which allows us the opportunity to visit often. We looked at several condos in the area when we decided to buy but were quickly sold on the Ocean & Racquet Resort, which is well-run, secure and structurally sound. It's an older complex than some on the beach but was very well built and continues to be extremely well maintained. The location is also ideal, being less than a mile from the Publix shopping plaza and many nearby restaurants, as well as only a 10-15 minute drive to the old city and its many attractions.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The old city of St. Augustine....never gets old! We like the security and family-friendliness of our condo community, St. Augustine Ocean & Racquet Resort; the closeness of our particular unit to the beach; and the privacy and convenience of our ground floor unit. We have seen the environment change many times as the dunes rise and fall, and our view is never the same from month to month. We like observing the environmental changes and the wildlife we see in the dunes, and the fact that St. Augustine Beach has managed to retain a natural beauty and purity, unlike many of the south Florida beaches that have become more commercialized.
