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, bathrooms, flooring etc.. 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!

Thank you so much Rosalie and Bruce for sharing your beautiful home away from home with us. We enjoyed our two week visit and we were grateful for the room that we had to share with our daughter, son-in-law and three grandsons who joined us for 5 nights. We also had a visit from our "old" college friends for 2 nights, so it was a joy to share your home with them! We had spectacular weather...70s most days and little rain, so the wonderful beach was a magnet! Enjoyed touring the sights of St. Augustine especially Flagler College, the Castillo, the Alligator Farm, and the Catherdral Basillica of St. Augustine.. We enjoyed meals at OC

Whites, the hotel at Casa Monica(the pear salad was delicious along with their humus!)' Violas pizza. Otherwise we cooked at the wonderfully stocked kitchen! We are just so grateful for the family time that you enabled us to share in your home! Beds were super comfortable and we were thankful for the rollaway for our littlest grandson! They were full of smiles!

Saint Agustine Beach is a quiet gem this time of year and it was wonderful to be away from the heavy traffic of south Florida/Sanibel area that usually go to. Presidents weekend was busy at St. Agustine and the beach was too, but not too crowded.

Thank you again for taking care of all our needs! Can't think of a thing you missed!

Owner's Response: Dear Fran and Frank, Thank you for taking the time to write such a nice and thorough review. I shared it with the team (property manager, cleaner, maintenance) that supports us onsite in the complex and we all truly appreciate it. The most important thing to me for my guests is cleanliness. Since you mentioned that, I rest assured our cleaners with lead Cheryl are doing a super job. I'm happy it was a good stay for you and your family. I hope you can make it a habit and come back soon! About 50% of our guests are repeaters and I would love to have you as a repeater! Thanks again!

Fabulously renovated and outfitted condo right on the dunes with an incredible view !

  • 5 of 5

Just as advertised and more. Rosalie was responsive and clearly cared greatly that her “guests” enjoyed her home away from home as much as her family does. Complex is nice, but the unit itself is superior.

Thank you!

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
