Saint Augustine Beach Condo Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms,2 baths, across from beach,heated pool, 2 bikes, free wifi, w/d

'THE SAND BUCKET' at Seaside at Anastasia offers you a relaxing cottage-style vacation rental while visiting the beautiful city of St. Augustine and St. Augustine Beach. Our 3 bedroom, 2 bath condo (over 1400 sq. ft.) is situated on the third floor (elevator or stair access) with sweeping views of the lake, heated pool, clubhouse and ocean. "The Sand Bucket" is family-friendly and all the comforts of home are here: a king bed in the master, queen size beds in the other two bedrooms and a queen size sleep sofa; flat screen TV's in each bedroom, 2 bathrooms, fully equipped kitchen, and your own washer and dryer. Cable TV (voice activated in family room), FREE high speed internet, and free long distance (US and Canada) is provided for your entertainment. From the screened balcony, you will enjoy the sunrise, views of the lake and ocean, the moon rising, or just relaxing at the end of a long, fun filled day. Past guests feel so comfortable with everything we provide at "THE SAND BUCKET", they tell us it felt like "home" for them.

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.

Guest Testamonial

'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

Why Larry chose Florida North East

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed the pool and the beach. The Wednesday evening concerts across the street at the pier are fabulous. What fun! We enjoyed the historic area as a family. The condo is incredible. Roomy and peaceful. We love St. Augustine and would love to share this unit again. Thank you! It is obvious that you put a lot of extra amenities and special touches. It encourages one to treat it extra special!

Perfect vacation rental!

  • 5 of 5

Sandbucket was amazing! I have stayed in many VRBO properties and this one was the most well-stocked, freshly decorated, and convenient of all. Forget all the usual hassle of getting to a rental and not having the comforts of home, this property has thought of everything! The pool, beach, old St Augustine all nearby. Plenty of room for 2 families or a few couples, or a girls weekend get-away. We will definitely be returning to Sandbucket!

Everything we hoped for and more!

  • 5 of 5

The Sandbucket was hands down the best vacation rental I've ever had, and I've stayed in condos, houses, hotels, you name it! They thought of absolutely everything you would ever need and stocked it at the condo, and more! I used very little "household items" that we packed and brought with us. Having beach items there was a dream, and not having to pack chairs/bikes/umbrellas/boogie boards left us with so much extra room in the car. The keys/codes are so handy and made the visit even easier. The property is extremely quiet, and everyone we bumped into was pleasant. It's right across from the beach, making it so convenient to walk and to walk to restaurants. The Sandbucket even converted my finance, who LOVES hotels, over to the condo life. We are already looking at our calendars to see when we can come back to The Sandbucket!

we made a great choice!

  • 5 of 5

very happy with everything, it was well thought out to make everyone comfortable and had so many extras we didn't expect. would have been a plus to have an outdoor cooking area to be able to grill out on the grounds. we will certainly pass this rental on to friends and family. hopefully come back again sometime.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to let us know that you enjoyed The Sand Bucket and noticed all the "extras" we provide for our guests. We want everyone to enjoy St. Augustine as much as we do and make your stay as enjoyable as possible. The grill situation has been an ongoing discussion with the Fire Marshall and is yet unresolved, but we do appreciate your feedback.

Clean, well-kept, fully stocked with a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We rent beach homes every year all around the country and this condo was, by far, the most comfortable, well-stocked place we've stayed! They thought of everything!!! It was like we were at home. I brought a lot of stuff from home to make our stay more comfortable and we didn't even need to open that bag. The location is fabulous with a beautiful view. Just steps to the pool, the beach, and restaurants made life so easy with 3 kids!! We would absolutely rent this condo again...even the beds were comfortable! How often does that happen?!?

Owner's Response: We are delighted to hear that you found all the "extras" that we provide to make your stay more comfortable. We try to make that special time together as a family a memorable event and hope that you will return to St. Augustine often. Like you, past guests have found the location to be one of the best on the island. Have a great summer and we look forward to having you return.

Even more beautiful than pictures!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 had an awesome time at the Sandbucket! Everything was clean, the condo is so well taken care of, and the kitchen had everything we could possibly need. The bedrooms are good sizes and are decorated adorably. The beds and pillows were clean and comfortable. The kitchen/living area was larger in person than in photos and we enjoyed gathering in the living room for game night. Mornings on the balcony overlooking the community pond and clubhouse were so nice. Thank you for providing such a thoughtful space, we will be back!

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.
