About Karen, Jim and Ellie Russell

My brother, sister in-law and myself wanted to have a place where our family could get together after our parents passed away. We grew up in St. Petersburg, Florida, yet as we grew up so did the distance between us. Two years ago we rented a vacation home for a family reunion in St. Augustine. We fell in love with the area and decided to get a place of our own.

Karen, Jim and Ellie Russell purchased this townhome in 2015

Why Karen, Jim and Ellie Russell chose Saint Augustine Beach

We spent more than 6 months looking for the right place. We looked at many different condos and homes from on the beach to the many neighborhoods on the island. Nothing caught all of our eyes until we found this property on A Street. It was beautiful, within walking distance to many restaurants, happenings in the area, and especially the beach, and had the space we were hoping for.

What makes this townhome unique

The benefit of this property is the home itself and the location. You know what they say... Location, location, location. The icing on the cake is that you can catch a shuttle and head into the historic St. Augustine district. You NEVER have to get in your car. The beach is one block away and the city pier (that hosts many fun activities) is only a half mile away.

Life's a Beach at "Beauty & the Beach"!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience with VRBO & my wife was apprehensive about what we'd "walk into". I'd say that after spending a month here, the bar is now set pretty high -- a wonderful experience for us. The unit passed my wife's "clean test", it was well maintained & the location was perfect for us...an easy 1 block stroll to the ocean & lots of beach bars & restaurants all within walking distance. Our comfort & convenience was of the utmost importance to Karen. Before we booked the unit, all of my email questions were answered promptly. During our stay, when the coffee machine didn't work, Karen had a new one sent to us from Amazon the next day. The only distraction was the limited "cable" TV. If you're a cable news or sports junkie, you might be disappointed with the network programming from the affiliates in Jacksonville -- just ABC, CBS, NBC & PBS. We will be returning to St. Augustine island in the future & wouldn't hesitate to book Beauty & the Beach again at that time.

Perfection!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and my sisters family truly loved your home! The pictures don't do it justice! It has a bright and open floor plan. The house is situated perfectly.... everyday we walked to the smoothie shop and headed to the beach then in the afternoon we took a nap in the air conditioning home then walked to get dinner at the Caribbean place on the corner...... Perfection!!! Thank you so much for the much needed vacation

Awesomeness!

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for my family of four. Plenty of room and very nicely decorated. Great location to the beach and town. Our favorite restaraunt for dinner was Harry's. But don't miss out on the Taco Shop around the corner for lunch! There is a large beach umbrella and a very small beach chair and a few fold up canvas chairs. I decided to go to the nearby Alvins Island to purchase a beach chair that better suited me.

This town home is very clean, comfortable, and well stocked. A lovely time had by all!
