Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, Sleeps 4

Just because you're at the beach, who says you can't live in luxury? Our 3-level condo at SpyGlass 41 is as opulent as a Paris flat, with beautiful furnishings and fittings you will love. Come enjoy the ocean view, the amenities, and the lovely décor!

Oriental rugs on the floors, art on the walls, and all manner of tasteful ornamentation greet you at SpyGlass 41. We want the inside of our ocean view condo to be as beautiful as the outside. So when you step onto our second-floor balcony overlooking the grounds, the dunes, and unspoiled Crescent Beach, you can truly feel at one with nature. Then you can go back inside and enjoy the beauty of man-made art!

SpyGlass 41 is just yards from a private walkway down to the beach, and even closer to a sparkling oceanfront swimming pool. This is a family-friendly, very well-maintained condominium complex just a few miles south of historic downtown St. Augustine, convenient to everything from world-class golf to fine dining and interesting sightseeing. At the complex, you can enjoy tennis as well as swimming and sunbathe. The sunrise over the Atlantic is stunning, and the sunset over the Intracoastal spectacular.

Park your car in our first-floor garage, then take the spiral staircase up to the living and dining story. Here you'll find our ocean view balcony (with casual seating so you can savor that first cup of coffee in the morning or final glass of wine at night), and just inside is the living room. The condo is open-plan, so the ocean view is shared with the dining and kitchen areas as well.

You'll love our comfortable couch and chairs, grouped around the entertainment center with cable TV and DVD player. The mirrored wall makes space look larger, but part of its charm is its intimacy. This is the place to gather the group after a busy day sightseeing or sunbathing and begin one of those long, unforgettable conversations. Or, failing that, there is always charades! You will like the coziness of this room and the lush décor.

The dining area is designed for comfort as well -- the long enjoyment of a good meal or an evening of games around the table. The chandelier, sideboard, and formal table setting are worthy of your finest feasts, but they also go nicely with take-out fish and chips, in case you've sworn off cooking while in Florida. (What an excellent idea! The restaurants in St. Augustine are simply too many and too good to miss.)

Whether you're toiling over gourmet delicacies or simply dishing up drive-through, you will love being in our kitchen. The wallpaper is regal, the countertops granite, and the cupboards stocked with every piece of cookware, dish, and utensil imaginable. You only add groceries -- the rest is here!

A half-bath is convenient to the living and dining areas, and we have stocked it -- as we have all the baths at SpyGlass 41 -- with towels. The beds all have linens, blankets, and pillows, and spares are at hand. Don't dream of packing these items, and lighten your suitcase still further if you would like to use our washer and dryer while you're here, too. You will be amazed at how many times you find yourself nipping down to the pool or the beach just one more time before bed . . . the washer and dryer keep all those swimsuits and beach towels fresh!

The master suite is a sanctuary at SpyGlass 41, designed for pure relaxation. The queen-sized bed offers a heavenly night's rest, the huge picture window brings the sea almost to your doorstep, and the writing table lets you indulge in scribbling postcards (or perhaps merely updating your Facebook status -- you DO have free wireless Internet here!) late at night. The en-suite bathroom boasts a walk-in shower and fabulous striped wallpaper.

The second bedroom is spacious as well, with 2 twin-sized beds and a small TV, because even the children are on vacation, after all! The second bathroom, offering both a shower and tub option, is convenient to this room. Everyone will get a good night's sleep at SpyGlass 41!

Mini Getaway With Family & Friends

  • 5 of 5

This unit was very clean and comfortable. All 9 of us LOVED it. The location was great; close to St.Augustine, Publix, and bait shop for the fisherman in the group. We loved the variety offered at Cinnamon Beach. We want to go back next year but this time for a week. We did not have any major problems but whenever we call the management office they were very helpful and quick to accommodate our needs.

This could be a 5* unit with updating and better general maintenance. View and location: 5 Stars

  • 3 of 5

I enjoyed my stay at this unit. In 27 years of renting condos all over FL, this was one of the best locations and views I ever had.

There was a number of issues regarding general maintenance and condition (age) of appliances that posed some inconveniences. For me, however, the location made up for it. Fortunately, all issues can be fixed easily. I reported all issues to the managing company and they were very receptive and quick to respond.

Extensive cooking is not recommended due to a lack of some basic kitchen equipment, e.g., there was not a single usable cutting/butcher's knife to cut meat.

If you plan to spend most of your time on the beach/at pool, but like to be able to quickly walk back and forth to the unit, this cozy, two story unit with quirky and unusual furnishings and a garage (an added bonus) is the place to rent. Washer and dryer in unit (a plus!) Some updating is needed in this unit, but other than that, this is a decent unit and I can recommend it. I would rent it again.

(I would remove personal photographs of the owner and his family members. Having them displayed in almost every room, made me feel a bit awkward.)

We was moved to different location

  • 5 of 5

I can't rate spy glass. They moved us to another condo due to maintenance issues at spy glass. We never even checked in there.. We was moved ahead of time and I am thankful for that.

The property had multiple large holes in the ceiling and thick debris/dust on floor and furniture.

  • 1 of 5

Somehow the major repair work that was taking place got by people and I ended up walking into an extreme mess. Four large holes in the ceiling and dust and debris over everything was the largest shock I have ever experienced while renting a vacation property.

  • 1 of 5

condo was old, macabre and dirty, windows ruined so view not there as described, all sitting surfaces were dirty with ground in stuff all over, beds were stained and place has musty smell, kitchen floor dirty, mildew on shower curtain hair everywhere that was not ours, no prompt answers from rental company and umpteen hours on phone with malfunctioning items, no internet, beware, it wont be fixed during your stay, maintenance says its been an issue for months and has not been fixed, construction starting BEFORE 800 right outside your window and will be going on for months, place is not worth the money charged, they charge comparable to area, but this is not worth 50 bux a night and customer service from vacation rental pros has been very sketchy to say the best. I have photos of all things reported and reported and no return calls from vac rent pro and its been a week now. stay away, spend your money elsewhere where you can get your value.

Such a fun space!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had a fantastic weekend at Spyglass 41. Everything you need to have a great time, cook, lounge, and spread out. There was some construction going on around the complex, but being off season, that wasn't a surprise. No noise started before 10 am any day. The only notes I have would be to leave some instructions for operating the cable, since that was a bit tricky to figure out. Also, make a note not to lock the handle on the front door, since no keys work that particular lock.
