The Kitchen
Great restaurants abound, but it’s good to know that our kitchen is exceptionally well equipped. If you love to cook and bake, this kitchen is for you. No problem fitting soup pots, roasting pans and cookie sheets into our 10 inch-deep designer sink.The entire kitchen is filled with excellent appliances, like a new 4-door stainless steel refrigerator and dishwasher. Our GE Profile Advantium microwave/convection oven cuts cookinging preparation time in half.There are even two complete sets of dishes and enough serving pieces for a banquet. Don't worry, your wine and martini glasses and other serious bar glasses await you as well.

Living/Dining Area
This spacious area is elegant but comfortable.There is a combination CD/radio player and dock for your listening pleasure. There is also a flat-screen TV. The living room reflects our interest in art and travel. A marble floor, crown moldings, and decorative baseboards provide crisp elegance, while the antique, oriental carpet suggests luxury, even while at the beach. You can enjoy your meals at the bar, on either balcony, or dine at the glass-topped table while gazing at the ocean, transporting you to the dining room of a grand ocean liner. Don’t get seasick!

Bedrooms
The master bedroom is carpeted, has crown moulding, a king-sized bed with a TempurPedic mattress and a flat-screen TV with On Demand and Showtime.There is also a Blue Ray DVD player.The master bedroom also has its own renovated and decorated bathroom with a shower/tub combo. The bathroom even has a safety bar in the tub! This master suite opens to a balcony perched above the beach, ocean and two pools. Because of its corner location, the condo offers unimpeded views from Flagler Beach all the way to St. Augustine! When retiring for the day, don’t forget to gaze onto the ocean to see the twinkling lights of the shrimp boats as they appear to meet the star-filled sky.

The second bedroom has two twin beds with TempurPedic mattresses, which can easily be moved together to make a comfy king. There is also a flat-screen TV. The crown moulding sets off the striking colors of the room. The adjacent bathroom has a large walk-in shower and is also renovated.

The third bedroom/den is equipped with a super-comfy,luxurious leather, queen-sized sofa bed with a TempurPedic mattress, as well as a flat-screen TV. This upper floor corner unit's unique feature is that this room opens onto an additional balcony facing the picturesque marshes of the intracoastal waterway and Fort Matanzas, just a 5 minute drive away. Wait until you sit here on a balmy evening, with drink or dessert in hand, watching the incredible sunsets. And during the day, view the daily parade of yachts, sailboats and small craft en route to crowded and noisy south Florida. This is a pleasure only afforded in a corner unit. A gift in itself!

If you can drag yourself away from this paradise, you’re just a short drive from historic downtown St. Augustine, the oldest city in the U.S. Just park your car and begin your stroll through the quaint, cobblestoned streets that lead you to charming shops, cafes and first class restaurants, intermingled with an abundance of historic sites and other tourist attractions. Complete your stroll with a walk along Matanzas Bay viewing the famous Castillo de San Marcos, the Bridge of Lions, and marinas.

Then head to the World Golf Village for its wonderful museum. Or plan to spend a day there for a round of golf as well. Another world-class golf course awaits you at Sawgrass in nearby Ponte Vedra. But even closer is the fine Marsh Creek Golf Club only 10 minutes away. We are also close to Daytona Beach and the Daytona Speedway and museum. Disney World, Universal Studios and Sea World are less than a two hour drive, as is the Kennedy Space Center.

Shopaholic? Of course peruse the many boutiques in historic St. Augustine, and then hit the outlet malls, 20 minutes away, or St. Johns Town Center and Costco, 45 minutes away.

INFO ON COMPLEX:
Complex has: private tennis courts, 2 large, private pools, and 2 large parking areas, one covered. For winter guests there is an organized schedule of social events in our attractive, large recreation room.

INFO ON AREA & ACTIVITIES NEARBY:

-Play your best game of golf at the World Golf Hall of Fame

-Zip up and down the old cobblestone streets of old St. Augustine on rented motor scooters and stop off at the bakeries for a quick treat.
-Get off the beaten track. From Flagler College cross King St., pass the Casa Monica Hotel and continue walking down Cordova. Just wander around for a view of our famous B&B's and the quaint gentrified homes, some existing since the beginning of St. Augustine's European history. You will want to stroll there time after time.
-Fountain of Youth

Vist our magnificent lighthouse and museum, within walking distance of the Alligator Farm.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1983

About the owner: We became a motor-homing family 38 years ago. Being a teacher, we headed to South Florida for every Christmas and Spring Break. After a few years of doing this, we decided to travel the beach road on our way back north. It was the first time we encountered Crescent Beach. So the following Spring, we saved some travel miles, and parked ourselves at Bryn Mawr Campground on St. Augustine Beach. That year we got to know the Ancient City and its beaches. We fell in love with it. One of those days, my birthday, it rained and rained. What to do. We decided to take a drive south to see what was down there. There in the midst of the pristine view stood 2 buildings and a 3rd under construction. With plenty of time to spare, we decided to check it out. From the 4th floor corner, of an unfinished apartment, we were able to see the unending view, the spaciousness as well as the sturdy, hurricane-safe construction. My husband asked,"How's this for a birthday present?" That was the beginning of our romance with this place. While we worked and raised our family, we came here for 2 weeks in August and rented our place out for the winter months. During my first winter of retirement, we were shoveling snow when my husband halted and said,"Are we crazy? Don't we have a condo in Florida?" We checked & it was not rented. We packed up and headed to our condo on the beach! We have become part of the St. Augustine community, spending September thru January here. Our friends and family come often to enjoy the quiet, comb the beach for seashells and visit the fun-filled town. When we are not here, we travel the world, spend several months in California near our children, and go back to the Main Line of Philadelphia to visit our stuff and plant a garden. My husband, a master handyman has a passion for keeping the condo near- perfection. I am a multi-media artist. Our interests are surely reflected in our comfy home . Come be our guests in our beautiful condo in paradise.

Why the Owner Chose Saint Augustine, FL, USA:
WHY RENT OUR PLACE? We are a CORNER UNIT which provides many benefits. 1. The light from the side windows looking down on the 2 pools suffuses our home with glorious light and sunshine.This is unavailable in an inside unit. 2. The view from our end unit stretches for miles in both directions, from Flagler Beach to St. Augustine. 3. Not one, but TWO PRIVATE BALCONIES, provided only on end units, allow you to enjoy the wrap-around view of the ocean and intracoastal waterway. 3. The sunsets from the intracoastal balcony are magnificent in their color, tone and configuration. Each evening provides an artistic adventure. Do not forget to take your camera out on the patio while you are having your sunset cocktail. 4. Watching the shore birds in the pond and the parade of yachts and water craft traveling the intracoastal provides hours of relaxed and contemplative viewing time. Our home, for it is our home, has been lovingly furnished and maintained by me, an artist, and my husband, a collector and perfectionist. Just about all of the wall decor has either been purchased on world travels or been created by professional artists and myself, not the decorations from the furniture store. The furnishings are sophisticated but at the same time, very comfortable. You may be tempted to stay inside all the time, except for what awaits you outside.
