About the property

2 bedroom, 2 bathrooms, spacious living area, on the intercostal

This 1st floor, 2 BD, 2 BA condo is situated right on the beautiful intercostal waterway. The porch features magnificent views of the yachts and boats of all sizes cruising up and down the waterway along with the coastal birds feeding in the marsh near by. I have owned this condo for 3 years (2011) and never rented it out until now (Nov 2014). The unit has all new furnishings, carpets, wood floors, and freshly painted. It also features wi-fi, 3 flat screen TV's (with a 48 inch in the living room). The master bedroom has a queen size bed, walk-in closet and a separate double vanity area with an entry way that takes you into the private shower and bathroom. The second bedroom has twin beds with its own bath located just outside the door. The complex features 3 swimming pools, one of which is heated. There are tennis courts and a fishing pier where you can cast your line into the crystal blue Florida waters. The condo is located 8 miles south of the historical St. Augustine, the oldest city in the country. St. Augustine has a wide variety of shops and restaurants sure to please every taste. There are also a number of historical sites nearby including the Castillo De San Marcos National Monument, featuring a 17th century Spanish fort. After you tour the fort, you can relax on a horse carriage or trolley tour through beautiful St. Augustine. The world renowned Florida beaches are only a 10 minute ride from the condo and for the sports enthusiast, the Golf Hall of Fames is a short 30 minute drive away. The best of Florida is at your fingertips in the greater St Augustine area!

About Alice Phillips-Oakley

I reside in Cedar Key Fl, the 2nd oldest city in Florida! I own and operate a bed and breakfast called Cedar Key Bed and Breakfast in Cedar Key. My husband and I moved down from Connecticut in January 2003 to purchase the Cedar Key Bed and Breakfast and when he passed away in 2010, I decided to purchase a place in St Augustine to retire there someday knowing how beautiful the city of st. Augustine is with all it's history.

God is so good as I have just remarried and have now decided to share my beautiful condo with others who can enjoy the peace and tranquility I have enjoyed over the past 3 years.

Alice Phillips-Oakley purchased this condo in 2011

Why Alice Phillips-Oakley chose Saint Augustine

I choose this property because of the beautiful natural grounds with all the trees lining the roads into the complex. It is quiet, peaceful and so close to anything you might be in the mood for.

When I walked into this condo to look at it, and saw the magnificent view of the marsh and inter coastal waterway, I knew I was home.

What makes this condo unique

The view, tranquility, sunrises, spaciousness of the condo, location, layout of the condo, the back porch where you can sit with your early morning coffee and enjoyed the rising of the sun and the stillness of the morning.

Serenity-need I say more...

  • 5 of 5

Just what we needed, a place to Relax & Re-connect on vacation. Close enough to everything, yet far away to get away from it all. The Intercostal waterway was an experience to watch it change with the tides & sun rises. A home away from home, that hugs you from the moment you walk in, to its comfortable bed that tucks you in at night, with a wake up call to its cheerful decor. Alice the owner, is Fabulous to work with, good communication-the perfect Host - that's as Charming as her home! Highly Recommend- We loved it so much we spent the last two days on the other coast at her B & B in Cedar Key-You should check that out too! Becky & Bob O from Atlanta GA

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

The condo is so peaceful and has all the touches of being at home. We loved the view from the back patio and how spacious the condo is. The location was great...a short drive to the beach or into town. We really enjoyed it.

Excellent!!! We had an amazing vacation!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I must say, this property was everything Mrs. Oakley ( Alice) said it was. It was so nice to stay in a rental that everything made you feel at home! From the kitchen to the linens!!!

Often in other rentals, we have not have enough linens. This place had PLENTY!! Cooking in the kitchen was a treat as well. Everything i needed was there to cook!

The views were an added bonus. We enjoyed sitting on the screen porch watching the boats, and wildlife. It was so relaxing.

We are avid beach people, and it was just a short drive to get to the beach. We were completely away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist....but close enough to enjoy it!!!

We will be back!!! Thanks again Mrs. Oakley!!!

My wife and I were totally unprepared for the beauty, cleanliness, decor, furnishings...everything that this condo had to offer us. We stayed a week (3/26/17 - 4/2/17), but would have loved to have just moved in on a permanent basis; or, at least stayed another couple of weeks had we the time, it was that lovely! The views from the back screened-in porch were absolutely the most peaceful and relaxing either one of us has ever experienced on a vacation. We enjoyed our coffee each morning out on the porch, watching the sun rise; then, with a glass of wine in the evenings, watching the tides come and go. This place even included binoculars so you can watch the magnificent wildlife that visits the shores and marsh along the inner coastal waterway, which is the back yard of this place. We can't say enough about it honestly...and the owner Alice is just a jewel. She was extremely informative; concerned that we found everything in order and enjoyed our stay by calling us a week after our return home. The community in which this condo is located is quiet, well maintained and situated close to everything one would need for an enjoyable "get away" experience. The residents, of which are mostly retired folks were courteous and very friendly. We were made to feel right at home, even though they knew we were just vacationers! We will definitely return to this gem of a vacation rental in the future.

Absolutely Beautiful!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place!!! The vista was stunning. We enjoyed the morning sunshine, watching the different wildlife and boats go by each day. The condo was very clean, spacious and nicely decorated. It had everything you to need to make your stay perfect! Working with the host was terrific. She was very quick to respond to any questions you might have. We found the entire complex inviting and really enjoyed using one of the three pools at the end of an active day. We would highly recommend this place!!

This place is a gem!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on Dec.26, 2016 and spent a week at this beautiful condo. We were thrilled with this rental!

It was immaculate and looked just like the photos on the website. It was near everything but, away from

the hustle and bustle of downtown St. Augustine, as we needed to relax and have a quiet place to

unwind in the evenings.

We fully enjoyed our week at this rental property. Thank you to the owners!
