About the Property
3 bedrooms,2 baths, across from beach,heated pool, 2 bikes, free wifi, w/d
Located in a gated community with beautiful landscaping, "THE SAND BUCKET" is just a short walk across the street from the beach (actually closer to the beach than some of the oceanside properties),the fishing pier and spray play park for children. Restaurants, shops, and parks are within walking distance and it's a short 4-mile drive to the downtown St. Augustine historic district.
St. Augustine is listed on Tripadvisor's 2016Travelers Choice Top 25 Destinations in the United States (ranked #25) and St. Augustine Beach is on the 2016 Travelers Choice Top Beaches In The United States (ranked #9)!
St. Augustine beach has 40 plus miles of beautiful beach and all the beach gear you will need is in the condo: chairs, sand toys, beach towels, umbrellas, beach cart aswell as pool noodles if you decide to spend a few hours at the pool. We've even included 2 adult bikes for you to tour the Island. If you are traveling with little ones, there is a pack n' play crib with linens, two children's feeding chairs, and a safety gate. For your comfort and our guests with allergies, we offer a smoke and pet free environment.
Fall is a great time to visit St. Augustine, so keep that in mind if a spring/summer vacation is not possible. Nights of Lights starts mid-November and has received national recognition for holiday festivities.
'The condominium was everything and more than advertised. It was well furnished, very nicely decorated and very clean. The grounds, including the exercise and pool areas, were no less well-cared for. There is a binder of local restaurants and attractions, as well as a guest book of experiences in the condo. Each proved to be great resources for us when making decisions about where to eat, or what sites we may find interesting. The two adult bicycles provided with the condo were more than adequate for us to ride into old town as well. The attention to detail at this condo shows that someone is paying attention, and is providing the means for the experience to continue to be great the next time.' . . . . Rick, September, 2014

Great Location, across from St. Augustine pier... walk and bike everywhere... Enjoy pier events, festivals, music, fishing, fireworks on New Years Eve. Lots of parks for small children and new skateboard park for older children/adults within close proximity. Several great restaurants and small stores with beach apparel, gifts, etc. are within walking distance. A short 5-8 minute walk puts you on the beach of Anastasia State Park. Historic St. Augustine is a five minute drive away. Grocery stores are 2-4 miles away depending on your preference. Two outlet malls approximately 16 miles from condo.
There are 41 miles of beautiful coastline with eight beachfront parks. Vehicular traffic is allowed on 16 miles of the sandy beach which is free of charge October thru February and paid access March thru September.
Nights of Lights runs from mid-November thru January 31 during which time the historic area is ablaze with twinkling lights. National Geographic Magazine (Dec. 2011) ranked St. Augustine as 'one of the top 10 places to see holiday lights'. In 2009, AAA ranked it in their '12 Favorite Places to find the holiday spirit in the USA and Canada'.
Forbes Magazine (April, 2012) listed St. Augustine as one of 10 of the prettiest towns in America.
SmartMoney (October, 2010) listed St. Augustine on their list of 'The New Best Places to Retire'.
Year Purchased: 2010
Why the Owner Chose Saint Augustine Beach, FL, USA:
After spending several vacations in the St. Augustine area when our children were younger we decided to buy here so that our grandchildren could enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of St. Augustine Beach. We vacationed in Seaside at Anastasia prior to purchasing our unit and quickly realized this is the 'best location on the island'. The beach across from our condo is a pedestrian-only beach, yet we are a short distance from the 'A' street beach ramp where you can drive for 16 miles South on the sand.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
St. Augustine is a wonderful location for a family vacation - Forty-plus miles of uncrowded beaches, no traffic jams, no high rise hotels (3 story limit), plenty of family style restaurants and venues for entertainment of all ages make for a relaxing vacation at the beach. Our condo offers some of the best ocean views that only a select number of third floor units have. We chose our condo based on the proximity to the pier and beach, and yet in a quieter area of the beach with plenty to do within walking distance.
