Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, Sleeps 4

At Summerhouse 162, the Atlantic Ocean is to the east, marshes and sunsets are to the west, Matanzas Inlet is to the south, and historic St. Augustine is to the north. Located in a luxurious resort, our condo combines beautiful scenery with perfect locale!

Sitting right on the shores of Crescent Beach, this town-house style condo offers breathtaking ocean views, fresh salty breezes, and frequent glimpses of Florida's gorgeous wildlife (it borders a bird sanctuary -- bring the binoculars!). With open spaces on 3 sides, it can seem wonderfully remote, yet America's Oldest City is just minutes away, with terrific sightseeing opportunities, fine dining, and world-class golf. And the Summerhouse resort has all the amenities, from 4 swimming pools (including one with an ocean view), lighted tennis courts, indoor racquetball courts, a playground, and a clubhouse with a gym and an office.

Prepare to fall in love with the oceanfront balcony at Summerhouse 162. Located just off the open-plan living and dining area, it invites dreamy sea-gazing in the balmy air, with the murmur of the surf as background music. You will remember these views, as well as the sense of calm they induce!

When it's time to go indoors, sink your toes into the new carpeting in our light, comfy living area. Soft sandstone-colored leather furnishings await you, along with a new HDTV with DVD player. Pop in your favorite movie, whip up a frosty drink, and put your feet up. You are officially on vacation!

In our open-plan design, the dining area is just beyond the living room, with uninterrupted ocean views. Our table seats 6, but doesn't see too many meals, for how can it compete with al fresco dining on the balcony or St. Augustine's award-winning restaurants?! Luckily, it has found a second life as a game table and computer center. Or leave all the electronics at home and devote this time to rediscovering your winning strategy at Monopoly!

Whether you're cooking on this vacation or simply serving snacks and drinks between fabulous dining out experiences, you'll enjoy using our galley-style kitchen. The latest appliances, handsome wood cabinetry, and the full complement of cookware, dishes, and utensils make it easy to fry up that fresh-caught redfish. The refrigerator includes an ice maker for your refreshing drinks!

A half-bath serves the first floor of Summerhouse 162, stocked with towels. You will find all the linens you need for both bedrooms and all 2½ baths waiting for you here, along with spare pillows and blankets. No emergency trips to Wal-mart on this vacation!

Travel upstairs, where both bedrooms and 2 full baths are nicely separate from all the activity of the living and dining area. It's so pleasant, after a busy day with the whole gang, to retreat to the peace and comfort of this floor!

The master suite is your sanctuary at Summerhouse 162. Its queen-sized bed is the last word in comfort, while the large window displays the ever-changing ocean in all its beauty. There is a TV and DVD player here for your entertainment, and plenty of space to make yourself at home. The en-suite bath, completely remodeled, features a walk-in shower. You may not want to leave this suite each morning!

The second bedroom also has its own full bathroom, with both a shower and tub option. This room contains 2 comfy twin beds and a TV with DVD player. Whether you're traveling with children, another couple, or friends, this versatile room accommodates everyone in spacious comfort.

We've tried to provide just about anything you might need while staying at Summerhouse 162. Our washer and dryer are at your disposal (you won't believe how many swimsuits and beach towels you'll go through!), and you'll find the condo well-stocked with all those little extras that make a difference to your stay. Once you visit here, we believe you'll be back as soon as possible!

Great spot

  • 4 of 5

Great location right on beach. Kid friendly with nice pool area and easy access to the beach. Unit was well maintained and clean with full range of supplies (coffee maker, toaster, etc) to support a stay.<br/><br/>Easy drive to st. Augustine attractions and several good restaurants in local area. <br/><br/>One small point is that renters should be told to go to insure office for parking pass as the one included with keys was not valid. This resulted in nastygram sticker on my rental car which was a pain to remove after baking in 80 degree heat.<br/><br/>Overall nice property and good value.

Filthy

  • 1 of 5

So sad to say that upon arriving to unit 162, after a 24 hour drive, we found our unit absolutely filthy. The previous renters' garbage, dirty sheets, crumbs, and hair were still covering the floors, beds and countertops. The fridge was filled with old food, the cutting boards had food scraps, there was a razor cover on a sink and a dried something or other hardened in another sink. After calling the housekeeping number for VRBO we were told they'd get someone "right out there". Here I sit, an hour later, in the heat, trying to entertain two hungry toddlers, and no one is here yet. No offer of a refund, or even a "sorry". After my husband sat on hold for twenty minutes with customer service, we were told someone is "en route" but were given NO ETA or time when the unit would be ready. Not to mention, zero talk of any sort of refund, again. This was our second year returning to Summerhouse, and glad to say, it's our last. Side note: I recommended Summerhouse to my friend and she and her family just arrived to unit 132, which was equally filthy and unacceptable. Get your act together VRBO.

Great condo, condo complex and beach.

  • 3 of 5

Our family really enjoyed this condo/complex. The beach access, swimming pools and weather in March is great! We were all very disappointed that we were told that this is in St Augustine Beach. It is in Crescent Beach. We drove our rental car 350 miles driving back and forth to where we thought we were going to be staying. There is nothing anywhere near this condo. 4-5 miles (to far to walk). We made the best of it but don't be misled like we were that this is in or anywhere near St Augustine/Beach.

In dire need of new carpet and a fresh paint job

  • 3 of 5

Location on the beach is very nice; but, we cannot forgive the very dirty and stained carpets. The walls need fresh paint and the furniture needs cleaned. Also, four sets of towels??? This means washing every single day?? We would not recommend this unit to our friends and relatives. The complex this unit is in looks nice, but rent a unit that is managed by the office. The office can't help you when the unit is privately owned and managed.
