About the property

Renovated With New Kitchen And Bath Cabinets And All New Stainless Appliances.

This unit is direct oceanfront. It has 3 bedrooms and is 1,800 square feet. In addition, it has a 350 square foot balcony and has been recently renovated. The rooms are spacious. By renovated it has a renovated kitchen and bathrooms. It is newer on the rental market. It is beautiful!

Access to the beach is convenient. Just a short walk over the private walkway and the wonderful wide and sandy white beach is right there. This unit is immaculate and will be thoroughly cleaned after each guest. The cleaning fee is included.

This home also has nicely designed rooms. Sliding glass doors (new sliders 4Q14) offer ocean views from the open living room, master bedroom, dining room and kitchen. The covered balcony offers plenty of room for dining or just relaxing. Peaceful blues, taupes and grays make up the warm interior. High quality furnishings with casual decor add to the ambiance. The living room is spacious and comfortable with lots of seating, a 60 in. Smart TV, Blueray/DVD, and high speed wireless Internet. Cook by the sound of the waves with the fully stocked kitchen, complete with quartz counter tops, custom cabinets, microwave, self clean oven/cook top, French door refrigerator....all stainless appliances. The early morning sunrise will be viewed from the master suite with king size bed, a large walk in closet and a roomy master bath. There is a huge shower that has dual showerheads. There are two other sizable with a queen bed and one with twin beds...and they share a second bathroom with tub that is also accessible from the hallway. A brand new washer and dryer are conveniently located in a hallway closet.

Hibiscus A202 is ideally located on the second floor of a condominium complex that is constructed of wood and has won architectural awards. It has a lot of character. The beach is beautiful and vast and you will be RIGHT ON IT! Because this is a second floor unit, the view is the best it can be meaning the dunes hide the folks walking on the beach– it is totally private! The dunes are restricted because of the tortoise sanctuary- they won’t bother you – they go towards the ocean and moon, not the condo. You just need to walk on the walkways and not the dunes please.

The dining table seats 8 and is ideally placed directly opposite the gourmet kitchen.

The living room and master bedrooms each have their own doorwalls with ocean front views. The living room doorwall is 15ft and the master is 13ft. This equates to 28 foot of glass overlooking the ocean!

The kitchen is outfitted with all the conveniences of home! Beautiful new cabinets, white quartz counters, and top quality appliances will make meal enjoyable The large refrigerator, cooktop, full size oven, microwave, dishwasher, and garbage disposal are all new.

St. Augustine is a delightful historic destination, with many attractions, walking streets, boutiques, great restaurants, carriage rides, walking tours (ghost walks, pub crawls, food tours), a super outlet mall, river and Intracoastal cruises, parasailing, deep sea fishing, and much more. Golf abounds, both in the St. Augustine and Ponte Vedra areas. The new World Golf Village is just 30 minutes away and dozens of other public and semi public courses are within minutes in several directions! Easy day trips can be made to Daytona and Marineland (about 45 minutes); Disney World and other Orlando theme parks (about 2 hours); the Kennedy Space Center (about 2 hours) and to various parks throughout northern and central Florida.

About Rosalie Rysztak

My name is Rosalie and I live in Michigan with my husband and two kids. We bought this place on the ocean as our second home. My business model is a little different. This is not an investment property for me. It is my second home and we maintain it as such. We hope others will enjoy it as much as we do. I promise quality and cleanliness. We look forward to your stay!

Rosalie Rysztak purchased this condo in 2013

Why Rosalie Rysztak chose Saint Augustine

We love the area and the weather. It is less commercial and more relaxed with lots of great local restaurants and bars. It is close to St. Augustine with all the attractions, historic things such as the fort, carriage rides, walking tours, etc that this area has to offer. We could go to a different restaurant every night and never hit them all. After coming to this area for 7 years, we are still discovering new things to do.

What makes this condo unique

What is unique about this place is the large doorwalls leading to the huge balcony with great ocean views. The unit is large, well designed and has a great layout. My goal is to have one of the nicest and cleanest condo's on the beach!

Few things in life actually live up to your expectation. This condo is certainly the exception. We were in love with it from the moment we walked through the front door and saw the panoramic ocean view. Everything about the condo was as described. It is spotless!. It is elegantly decorated, yet totally comfortable. There was absolutely nothing that we lacked to make our stay enjoyable. The kitchen had every amenity. The beach umbrellas, towels and chairs were incredibly convenient. Rosemary is so easy to work with. She answered every e-mail question in a timely manner. The only reason I would say anything negative about this condo experience is that I want to go back and hope that it isn't continuously booked!

Owner's Response: Linda, Thank you for taking the time to review us. I will pass along to our cleaning crew and onsite manager. This will make their day as it makes mine. Please come back anytime. To your point about getting booked up, please reserve if you think there is a possibility of returning next year. You can always cancel 60 days in advance. A disappointment to both of us is when folks wait, we booked to someone else on this website, and I don’t get the repeats. I sincerely appreciate your business, Thank you! Rosalie, Jarred and Cheryl

Fun in the Florida Sun!

This was the perfect place for my family to come together during my nephew's wedding week. The unit is well appointed and the office staff very friendly and helpful. It's only a few minutes drive to Publix for groceries, local restaurants and into historic St Augustine. Highly recommend!!

Beautifully decorated, clean, gorgeous ocean view from living room. Master and balcony.

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location, the beach is clean with white powdery sand, warm water, not crowded at all! Just a short walk from the condo. Condo was clean with all you need...Beach chairs, beach towels, boogie boards, and beach umbrellas. Kitchen was fully outfitted with tons of pots, pans, oil, vinegar, spices, coffee filters, on and on. We sat on the back patio looking at the ocean every morning with coffee and evening. Great place for a glass of wine or a beer. Close to town. We enjoyed the many wonderful restaurants and sight seeing in town as well as much beach time. Perfect vacation!!!

Excellent location, nicely equipped/updated, and beautiful views with all the comforts of home.

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 5 with 3 kids between the ages of 6 and 11. This condo was perfect as our spring break home away from home. It is very tastefully updated with gorgeous views of the ocean from the main living space and the master bedroom. The huge covered balcony was a perfect spot for our morning coffee, evening cocktails and even a few family meals.

We split our days between the beach/pools in the morning and the touristy attractions in St. Augustine each afternoon (10-15 minutes up the road). There are grocery stores close by, amazing restaurants and lots of fun attractions, so I was expecting the beach to be more crowded than it was; it almost felt like a private beach (not crowded at all). The condo supply closet included a beach umbrella, 4 beach chairs, 3 boogie boards, pool noodles and a bucket of sand castle building toys, so there was turn-key fun for all of us. There are 2 pools very close to the condo and the beach access is via a boardwalk, which is also very close.

The condo kitchen was equipped with all the staples (coffee filters, Saran Wrap, pots, pans, maple syrup, etc.) so we just had to buy what we planned on consuming for the week. So easy!

We couldn't have been happier with the condo unit. It's probably the nicest one in the complex. Our only complaints are that the workout room onsite was pretty unimpressive and the condo's wifi was so slow that we just ended up using our data. Neither was a big deal.

Thanks for a great week! It was our first VRBO experience and we'd definitely rent this unit again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review. I appreciate your business and hope you will come back in the future. Thanks for pointing out the WiFi. There is a network for the complex. Because that is slow, I have my own named ATT7TMh7ME with AT&T Uverse. I am thinking we may not have communicated instructions well. I'll contact my guests for this week to make sure they have the right network. Then, when I go the following week, I'll make sure the labels are correct. I am on the board and the clubhouse/workout room needs a refresh which will be on the agenda for future projects. Thanks again for everything and glad you enjoyed the unit and complex.
