The location and The Sand Bucket are perfect for a family vacation.

This is a review from a guest that stays yearly: "After staying for three months, we can honestly call the Sandbucket 'home from home'. The condo is beautifully appointed with everything one would expect for a comfortable stay. Very spacious, furnished with attention to detail, fast wifi, beach essentials, bicycles, tv in every room, well equipped kitchen and plenty of spare linen and towels. Amazing views from balcony, particularly sunrise and sunset. Views of the ocean which was easily accessible just across the road. We loved leaving the doors to the balcony open to listen to the crashing waves!

It is well located for local attractions including, the Old City, shops, restaurants, the fort, the alligator farm and state parks. Information for all of these, and more, is available in the condo.

The complex is very well managed by Jamie Serenati, who we found extremely helpful and efficient.

We very much look forward to returning in December." Submitted by Mary F.

"THE SAND BUCKET" at Seaside at Anastasia is the perfect vacation home within walking distance of the beach, restaurants, shops, and a short 5 minute drive to historic St. Augustine.

About Larry

My wife and I purchased this property in 2010 and are now in our eighth year of sharing our vacation home with guests. Our goal is to provide our guests with a comfortable and memorable "vacation home" that they will return to frequently.

Larry purchased this condo in 2010

Why Larry chose Saint Augustine

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.

What makes this condo unique

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.

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.
