About Ruth and Sam Sawyer

Sam grew up in Georgia, I grew up in Florida. This year we will have been married 57 wonderful years. We have two children and four grandchildren who are the joy of our lives. We also enjoy meeting the guests who rent our condo in St. Augustine Beach. Many of them return year after year and have become friends.

Ruth and Sam Sawyer purchased this condo in 1999

Why Ruth and Sam Sawyer chose St Augustine

We chose this property after many years of looking at condos up and down the beach. It was one of the newer buildings, very close to the beach and beach pool, and even though it was not looking down on the beach, it had a wonderful ocean view. Since it is on the end of the building nearest the ocean, it has an extra window which makes it light and airy. The balcony with its southern exposure is a great place to read and relax; watch the beautiful sunrise or see the moon and stars at night. It was our special getaway for a number of years while we were working and the grandchildren were not yet old enough to be involved in all the weekend sports. When they started growing up and getting involved with other activities we decided to rent it to others so they could enjoy it as we have. It is still a wonderful, beautiful, and special place to us!

What makes this condo unique

St. Augustine Beach is 10 minutes from St. Augustine, the nation's oldest city. It is so much fun to go downtown, ride the trolley, walk the old streets and visit the beautiful churches, and see the many historical sites like the old fort, the Bridge of Lions, and the wonderful local restaurants. The beach is about 3 minutes from the condo; past the beach pool, across the dune walkway to a beautiful white sandy beach. The wide beach is a great beach for walking or just sun bathing, playing games or catching up on reading and, especially, relaxing with friends, children and grandchildren!.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The listing description was very accurate regarding the location, and the listing photos accurately reflected the rental's true appearance and amenities. A beautiful condo. The property was very clean and well-maintained. The pool was great, the view was excellent. The owner was very helpful in answering questions, gave us a lot of good info as to what was available to do.

PS. The "Black Molly" was a good place to eat.

Relaxing, Cozy, Clean, Peaceful, Great location

  • 5 of 5

Ruth and Sam are very gracious hosts and were great at communicating with us. We so enjoyed our weeklong visit and their place was the perfect place for us to call home on vacation. The condo was comfortable and clean and had everything we needed for the week including beach chairs and sand toys for the kids. The location was a very short walk to the beach and either of the two pools. The grounds were kept very tidy. Parking was convenient and there was an elevator to get our luggage up and down from the car. Overall we really enjoyed our stay. It was a super place for myself, my husband and our two boys ages 8 and 3. Would definitely recommend and would love to come back! Thanks again!

Beautifully decorated and exceptionally clean condo!!! Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this condo was excellent. It was so clean and my family felt very we were at home. Sam and Ruth were such a pleasure to talk to. They were very kind, patient and flexible with us as we had a flat tire on the way to Florida which delayed our arrival by several hours. They had a beautiful bowl of fresh fruit and snacks for us when we arrived. The beds and sheets were so soft and comfortable. The complex was beautifully kept. My family had a wonderful experience at this condo and complex. Sam and Ruth were awesome! I hope we are able to rent this condo again next summer.

The condo was as good as advertised. The beautiful beach is a short walk away. The owners are very detail oriented people and even met us at the condo upon our arrival to show us around. We would return in a heartbeat!

For the past 19 years, my family has traveled to St. Augustine for our spring break vacation. We have always stayed at Ocean Village Club and have rented various units. This year, we decided to book through VRBO and were given the privilege to book Ruth and Sam's gorgeous condo. From the moment we booked until the day we left, our experience was nothing short of amazing. The unit is clean, updated and well maintained. All of the amenities that were needed were provided including beach towels, sand toys, beach chairs and other games for the kids. Sam and Ruth made sure that everything was perfect and in place before our arrival. They left us a bowl of fresh fruit and other snacks upon our arrival and even checked on us during the week. This was by far one of the nicest units we have stayed in and the owners hospitality made our vacation memorable! We look forward to booking this unit again! I would highly recommend renting this unit. The location and view is also perfect :)
