Ideal for a week’s vacation or a full winter escape, Colony Reef 18A is a well-appointed, ground level condo overlooking lush gardens and a fountain-feature lake. Large windows assure great natural light; so dose up on the Florida sunshine you’ve come for.
A polished 2-bedroom unit for up to 4 people, 18A particularly suits a healthy, active group who love spending time outside. Eat every meal al fresco on the garden-view patio, and enjoy it the rest of the day for uninterrupted reading and peaceful bird-watching. In addition to a lovely natural outlook, the patio offers welcome shade so you’ll never find your outdoor furniture too hot to touch.
Tiled throughout, 18A promises a spotless experience and encourages a bare-footed guest. Location-wise, it’s just next to the resort’s health club and indoor pool and a short walk to the beach. Come for a long weekend and never miss a work-out, or stay much longer and return healthier than you arrived.
With two bedrooms, this a great single-family rental is ground floor without any steps and is close to the pool, sauna, indoor raquetball, gym and game room. Direct patio access off the roomy master bedroom ensures you get as much vitamin D as possible. A pristine-clean master bathroom has a double vanity, and a shower/tub combination. Twin beds in the second bedroom suit both children and adult singles.
From front to back, 18A offers contemporary soft-furnishings, plus bright-white fixtures and appliances. Find everything in its place; a roomy kitchen with tons of counter space envelops a sunny breakfast nook – with a toaster just where you want it. Opposite the breakfast bar, there’s an ample dining table that seats six and, after dinner, plenty of comfy seating in the open-plan living room.
While Colony Reef 18A offers many of life’s quiet pleasures, you needn’t sacrifice your technological comforts. Wi-Fi keeps you entertained and in touch, and HDTV and a DVD player offer great variety in entertainment. Further good news of a logistical variety: in-suite laundry promises you won’t have to take home soggy swimsuits.
Colony Reef is a completely smoke-free resort that will earn your A+ for its especially generous facilities. Whether coming for a week, two weeks, or longer still, you’ll either concoct your perfect schedule and stick to it, or try something new each day. On offer are great play on two asphalt tennis courts and a large, ocean-front swimming pool. Indoors, find a heated lap pool, health club with sauna, and racquetball court. Did we mention that St. Augustine is a great destination for the holidays?
For children, there’s a dedicated kiddie pool and a great playground. Sneak in nature lessons on the beach boardwalk, taking time to spot local wildlife both in the sand dunes and the ocean. At certain times of the year you might be lucky enough to see a right whale!
Located on St. Augustine Beach, you’re perfectly placed to do everything, or to properly perfect the beach bum lifestyle. Whether you turn left or right out of the resort will determine whether you first visit two area highlights: Fort Matanzas and the St. Augustine Lighthouse are both on your doorstep. With free parking beside your ground floor suite, you’re absolutely ready to roll! Also nearby are board rental shops, whether you fancy yourself as a surfer or a boogie-boarder. Spend your vacation in the waves, and then explore historic St. Augustine by night!

Although the property is not exactly where the building spec indicates, it is a very nice private space towards the back of the building and was just a short walk to the beach or pool. It was the perfect location to base our short visit out of and will gladly return!
Unit was well equipped and comfortable except pillows (personal preference). Everything worked. It is in the rear of the property, so less crowded. Easy in/out. Neighbors friendly and appeared to be long term occupants. Small kids overhead a bit noisy but ok. Small issue with water and drain in master tub, but management was quick to respond. Overall, a pleasant short stay.
We had a great time on our vacation, the condo was clean and tastefully decorated. The kitchen was well equipped, the only thing I would want to point out is if you're a light sleeper the master bedroom is right by the pond so the frogs and other insects are very loud. My husband had no problem and luckily I brought ear plugs. We definitely would have no problem renting this property again.
The check in/out process was very easy and quick. All the information provided in advance was a great help! The complex was in a great location and the grounds were very nice. The pool area exceeded our expectations! The unit we stayed in, 18A, was very nice and roomy. Areas of improvement include cleaning the floors and bathrooms more thoroughly, clean the patio furniture on the day of arrival, install a new kitchen faucet, replace the TV in the 2nd bedroom (it didn't work at all), improve the internet connection (it went in and out frequently and the signal was very weak). All in all, we had a blast!! We would come back again! Thank you, Jenny
