About the Property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Bright, airy, comfortable, and attractive, this two bedroom/two bath condo provides a relaxing retreat from the wear and tear of daily life. Lying in bed in the master bedroom or sitting on the couch in the living room, you will have a view of the wide Atlantic and be able to hear its restful music. (Isn’t there just something about listening to the waves that puts the troubles in life in perspective?) Polywood bistro table and Adirondack chairs, a two/three person glider, and a comfortable rocker on the wide, north-facing balcony furnish a shady retreat on which to sit and sip coffee or sodas while watching the kids frolic in the pools, the dolphins play with each other, or the sea gulls chase the shrimp boats.

On rainy days, guests can watch DVD’s in either bedroom or in the living room. A large plasma TV hangs on the wall across from the bed in the master, which is a favorite feature for some of our guests. The living room also features a 42 inch plasma TV for your entertainment desires. The master, living room, and second bedroom all have cable TV and we now offer wifi at no extra charge for those who like to stay connected!

With a comfortable California King-Sized bed, the master is a relaxing haven. The bedside table even sports a charging station in the top drawer for all your electronic devices! Hopefully this will enable our guests to remember their cords. Seems every time we owners travel, we leave some cords along the way!

The kitchen comes fully equipped with coffee maker, two sizes of George Foreman grill, mixer, crock pot, waffle maker, cookware, bakeware, glassware, dinner service and flatware for those who enjoy (gasp!) actually cooking on their holidays. (I do.) Thanksgiving and Christmas guests will even find a turkey roaster to prepare their holiday meals. You’ll also find a small laundry room inside the unit with washer/dryer/ironing board/iron for your convenience. Spacious closets allow you to unpack and put away the suitcases so you don’t spend your vacation tripping over STUFF!

Beach chairs and beach towels are all provided so that you don’t have to pack the farm when you travel. We have also left a small collection of pastimes for your enjoyment. Boogie boards, skim board, beach toys, kites, umbrella, fishing poles, bait buckets, two sizes of ice chests, etc are also kept in the closet on the balcony. Of course, it does happen that our guests forget what they brought and what was already in the condo so sometimes those items walk away. Though we can’t promise they’re still there, all of these items were in the condo last time we visited. And, of course, all linens for bed and bath are provided. Due to fire codes, we are no longer able to provide a barbecue grill for our guests to use on the balcony. We apologize for the inconvenience. This is out of our control.

This unit is kept to a high standard of cleanliness. When you walk in the door it should both look and smell clean. This is a hot button for us! When we vacation, we don’t want to move into someone else’s dirt nor do we want our guests to have that kind of negative experience. And because the owner is allergic to molds, the housekeeper is very careful to attack dusts, molds, and mustiness that sometimes accompany beach properties. Towels, sheets, glasses, and most rugs are often replaced and we have top quality balcony furniture that should last almost for ever! In February of 2017 we have just replaced the dinette set, the dishwasher, and the range, as well as exchanging the vertical blinds with light blocking attractive curtains. This unit is as immaculate as we can keep it considering the steady stream of guests coming through the door!

The complex in which this condo is located, St. Augustine Beach and Tennis Condos, is an ocean front complex just 2/10 of a mile from the famous Oasis Grille. The wide beach is only 300 feet from the condo across a private, coded access boardwalk. It is 3/10 of a mile to Winn Dixie and half a mile to the Publix grocery store. The historic district is only five miles away; the pier is 2 miles away. A third floor unit with access to two elevators, luggage carts, and grocery baskets, it is easy entry and exit. The homeowner’s association rules are flexible enough to allow guests to have a good time while being stringent enough to protect their safety. It has a reputation for being family friendly rather than for attracting the party crowd. You will find the complex clean, well maintained, and attractive with its two large pools.

As owners, we want our guests to have wonderful vacation experiences. To that end, we are continually striving to make our condo a more and more enjoyable vacation destination. If our guests make special requests, we have bent over backwards to try to fulfil their request to the extent that one day a guest emailed us to tell us the bed was lumpy and we had a new mattress delivered the next day! Contact us with any questions. We do our best to make staying with us a pleasure which you will want to repeat year after year.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: We are missionaries in Asia and have a large family- 8 children, 2 granddaughters and 6 grandsons! We love the Lord Jesus, God's Word, and His creation. It is our pleasure to serve Him together. We have our feet firmly planted in two continents with one foot in Asia and the other in America since we have one daughter adopted from China, three Asian daughters-in-law, an Asian son-in-law, and we are Americans. We've decided that until we get to Heaven our hearts will never be in just one place again!

Why the Owner Chose Saint Augustine, FL, USA:
When our parents passed away a few years ago, we found ourselves with no place to stay when we visit America, so we used our inheritances from them to purchase this home away from home. This particular condo captured us because of the wonderful view and the aesthetically pleasing recent renovations. It provides all the comforts of home for us when we get to come to the states and by renting it to guests between times, we are able to pay the high costs of maintaining it. We consider it a very special gift from our parents, who always took such good care of us and continue to do so even after they're gone, through this wonderful provision. This place is a haven for our family, as we hope it will be to our guests.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We love lying in the bed and looking at and listening to the beautiful ocean. Seeing blue skies and the ocean every day is just wonderful after months of white/gray smog filled skies and city noises! You may take fresh air and clean smells for granted but we don't! We enjoy the comfortable furnishings which are attractive but uncluttered. Our kids love the wide open spaces, running on the strand, swimming in the pools,and enjoying God's creation. The condo itself and the entire complex is well maintained, which always makes our time there especially pleasant! And it is in a location where walkers can take long walks on the beach without running into retaining walls. The pier is a 2 mile walk each way; Publix is 1 mile away; Winn Dixie is 3/10 of a mile away; and a restaurant is only 2/10 away. So we have loved being able to walk around without getting into the car. It brings us back to simpler times, perhaps!
