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 wide view of the 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 generously sized, 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! We keep a small collection of DVDs to enjoy on those rainy days, too.
With a comfortable California King-Sized bed, the master is a haven. The bedside table even sports a charging station in the top drawer for all your electronic devices or your Cpap machine! Hopefully this will enable our guests to remember their cords better. (We often leave a cord behind a table when we're away from home so this makes it easier to remember- a small thing, but helpful.) The master also has enough dressers and drawers for guests to put away all of their clothing, odds and ends. Hopefully this will enable you to unwind in a clean, uncluttered space so that your mind and spirit can rest and breathe during your time of respite. Recent additions to keep our guests comfortable and happy are a pack and play for infants and a fan so that those of you who always pack a small fan for the white noise can leave one more thing at home.
The kitchen comes fully equipped with coffee maker, coffee grinder, French press, George Foreman grill, blender, mixer, crock pot, waffle maker, rice cooker, cookware, utensils, 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 not one but two turkey roasters 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 fun, colourful 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, beach toys, cutesie little things for kids to search for in the pool, kites, umbrella, fishing poles, bait buckets, two sizes of ice chests, etc are also kept in the closet on the balcony. And we recently purchased a beach tent to keep our guests and their little ones out of the hot sun! With big ventilating windows and sand bags to hold it down, it was the top rated tent on Amazon. They say you can open it with only one person. I'm excited to provide yet one more item you don't have to bring with you! We've also gotten one of those super cool beach carts into which you can load all of the above mentioned items and roll it down to the beach on wide wheels that won't get bogged down in the sand! I'm not sure how many two bedroom condos provide so many cool things for their guests and it makes us happy to be able to do so. 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- high thread count sheets and big fluffy towels add small touches that will make you more cozy and comfy. 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 regularly replaced and we have top quality balcony furniture that should last almost for ever! In February of 2018 we have just replaced the dinette set; in February 2017 we replaced the dishwasher, and the range, as well as exchanging the vertical blinds with light blocking attractive curtains. (These are SO much nicer than the vertical blinds we formerly had! You can now sleep in a little without the bright sun waking you up.) This unit is as immaculate and well supplied 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, and the little courtyard is beautifully landscaped and inviting. 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! And the portable crib was purchased at the request of an upcoming traveler, too. 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.
Because our complex is putting in a new parking lot surface, guests may need to park next door. The walkway to beach is being stained so the nearby public walkway will be available for use. Each inconvenience will require a couple hundred feet extra each time you park or go to beach, however our condo will be as clean, convenient, well maintained, and lovely as usual! And you would be getting a super deal. This is a last minute parking lot Reno double discount for October only. If the lot takes longer, we may extend the discount!
