About Jesse Jabot (owner)

I lived in St. Augustine from 1998 thru 2007 before moving to Jacksonville for employment purposes where I reside now. Decided to rent the condo instead of sell for my daughters to enjoy in the future.

Jesse Jabot (owner) purchased this condo in 2002

Why Jesse Jabot (owner) chose Florida North East

I actually rented a condo for four years in Island South before purchasing in 2002. I looked around in St.Augustine for about 6 months before deciding to purchase in Island South. I felt that Island South was the best condominium complex in St. Augustine. There is only 36 units which makes it more quaint and relaxing then the other big condominium complexes. The grounds are very well manicured and the pool area is always kept clean. It is also located on the most desirable part of St. Augustine beach where driving is prohibited.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you Jesse for everything! The condo is perfect, along with the weather, dinner at Harry's etc,etc,etc! St. Augustine is our favorite place in the world, and this time away has been perfect. Thank you so much!

Unit #11 at Island South was everything we dreamed about and more! I checked 100 and thiswasperfect.

  • 5 of 5

If you want direct ocean front, this is the right condo. The large covered deck has comfy chairs and loungers & table. A door is off the deck for a quick escape to the beautiful beach via a boardwalk. There is even a front patio too to watch the golden sunset. We loved the roomy condo. With 5 in our family vacation, the condo provided privacy yet we shared lots of happy memories. Three TV's were provided however one never was operable. We don't even have Netflix at home, so having a movie channel was awesome. We cooked very little but enjoyed having a great kitchen designed over looking the dining room, living room and the Atlantic Ocean. I do a lot of homework before vacations so our family will enjoy the right location, right condo, right restaurants etc. I checked out hundreds of condo listings and this was a fabulous choice for us. We were blessed to select the only week left on the available calendar. The owner, Mr. Jesse Jabot, takes pride in his condo and we respect him for all the extras he offers. Beach chairs, canopy, sand toys, puzzles, storage closet full of useful items, free wifi ~~~ all five of us texting! The condo was clean when we arrived and we did our best to keep it clean until we left. We had so much fun in St Augustine Beach and city. BTW, our favorite restaurants were Salt Life Food Shack and Harry's Seafood Bar & Grille. Thank you, Mr. Jabot, for the perfect condo for our family!

Great family spot on the beach!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a excellent experience with this rental. The condo was in great shape and the view of the beach was fantastic. It was an easy drive to local restaurants and the grocery store was just down the street. This particular stretch of the beach was nice as they do not allow cars to drive/park, so the crowds were less intense. My kids (6 and 3) really enjoyed the pool, which was cleaned and maintained daily during our stay.

The owner was very responsive and quickly available if we had any questions or issues. I would absolutely recommend staying here, especially if you have small children. Hope to come back soon!

Great beach access! Excellent ocean sunrises!

  • 5 of 5

The rental is on a 3rd floor with an unobstructed view of the surf, and has very easy beach access via the association boardwalk. The unit has beach towels, 2 chairs, small boogie boards, and a canopy (that we did not use). We had beautiful weather and did not use the pool, though other residents sure did. There was a dedicated parking space very close to the stairs which was helpful as there is no elevator, and we did not have any problem finding the unit with the directions provided. The unit owner was very responsive to questions and helpful with recommendations for local activities and dining. The balcony was a large welcoming space with comfortable chairs and nice sea breezes. The entire complex was quiet and well maintained. A/C, Washer and dryer worked fine and plenty of hot water.

Nice location

  • 3 of 5

Just to give you my perspective, I have rented a dozen places in at least half dozen different countries over the past 15 years. This apartment is on the beach and the balcony in the photos is a realistic view. What the description doesn't say is that there are no elevators and it's a full three floors walk up. If I had known in advance, I would have still rented it but I would have packed lighter. I usually travel with kitchen stuff but this kitchen has plenty of amenities. The decor is nice. The beds comfy, plenty of towels, tvs, etc. the place was far from clean when we arrived but the owner had the cleaners return. The carpet also got cleaned after we arrived because we complained about it. The cleaners did a mediocre job. Carpet needs to be replaced. Anyway, I probably won't rent this place again.
