Very peaceful stay with wonderful ocean views. Comfortable beds, well stocked, and toys and chairs to enjoy the beach. What more could a beach get away need.

“Pinning this one to my Favorites bar”

When my college girlfriends and I were planning our annual trip, I offered to find us a vacation rental. Whenever I rent a vacation home online, I'm always just a tad nervous until I get there and see what it's really like. I looked at all of the pictures and reviews on this condo and went for it and I am ever so glad I did! We 5 women are pretty easy to please, but this place ranked as our top rental EVER, and we've been travelling together for about 30 years!! First, yes, there are tenants in 2 separate apartments, on the ground we never saw and the other folks pretty much stayed to themselves but were very friendly when we did see them. The top floor was all ours, the deck was large, comfortable and provided non-stop visual displays of sand, sea and sky. When we were not on the deck or beach, the condo had just about everything you could think of to make for an effortless stay...lots of utensils, cookware, plates, glasses, etc. in the kitchen, comfortable furnishings, good quality linens, towels and beach towels, great tv, tons of books and magazines, nice bathrooms and appliances. The beach chairs could use some updating, but with the beach only a few yards away, there really is nothing to complain about. We had great food and fun at 3 of the local restaurants and the grocery store is close enough to walk to. Downtown St. Augustine was a very quick drive over the bridge. We had beautiful sunny, warm weather, too, which made for a picture perfect week!

Owner's reply: Hi Cathy, We're so glad you had a such a wonderful experience at our beach house. We really strive to make our guests comfortable! The beach chairs take the toll of the salt water and air and are replaced regularly. I guess it's time once again to replace them. We're thrilled your time at the beach was relaxing and memorable. We look forward to having you visit once again!

This is a beautiful home. It's will have everyone need. Beautiful and spotless. Very clean. The beach is just steps away. We watch the dolphins almost every night from the deck. Close to a supermarket. We visited St augustine, Daytona Beach and Jacksonville and didn't feel like we had traveled all day. The ocean was wonderful. Had a couple of day where the waves were huge and the surfers we out. We enjoyed watching them. All in all the was a super vacation.

Owner's reply: Thank you Valerie! We're so glad you had a great stay! Let us know when you'd like to return and visit.

“Almost perfect”

Reviewed 30 Jan 2014

Location,location,location...perfect place for a visit to St. A. The view and size of the rental were ideal. The neighborhood was safe and the neighbors couldn't have been nicer. Only a few very minor items that need to be looked into. The kitchen was great with almost every utensil you would need to feed 6. Which we did. Hope we can be here again next year.

Owner's reply: We're so glad you had a wonderful vacation! Thank you for bringing the minor items to our attention. We hope to see you again next year!

This beach house was perfect in every way. It was spotlessly clean, very well-stocked, safe and quiet. The location was ideal for everything we had planned and the Publix grocery store was right down the street. The view off the back deck is awesome. We saw dolphins daily. Having the ocean just mere steps away made it perfect for those of us who chose to stay inside to be able to watch those of us who chose to hit the beach. The Reinholds are excellent managers. They responded to every email we sent very quickly and answered our questions satisfactorily. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it to anyone planning a stay in this area.

Owner's reply: We're so glad you enjoyed your stay! We aim to make the house as comfortable as possible when guests are away from the comforts of their home. We hope to have you visit again in the future. Thank you!

My family stayed at this property for 7 days. I did not want to leave. The front porch was wonderful, we ate there and spent many hours looking at the view. I would recommend this property for anyone who needed some much needed R&R.

Owner's reply: Thank you Vivian! We're so glad you were able to relax and enjoy your stay. We try to make the house as comfortable as possible. We hope to have you next year!

Fair price paradise!! This place has it all. Clean, comfortable, close to everything but still a private atmosphere. Well stocked and we needed nothing except the food we brought. don't let the fact that there are other people in the house keep you from checking out this gem, you never even see or hear them. Wake up to sunrise on the deck with your morning coffee and end the day with a cool drink on the large and breezy deck.In between explore the city, walk on a very uncrowded beach, read a book from the large selection in the house, its all there. This place is perfect for families or couples. Every appliance you could think of was in the kitchen and the baths were well stocked with soap and towels as well as a washer and dryer. There is a large Publix supermarket less than a mile away so there is no need to take groceries from home. Everything in the house worked and there were no surprises. Beds and furniture were all in great condition and you could tell the property was well taken care of, even the backyard was one of the nicest in the row of homes with an outdoor shower to rinse off after a day at the beach. No sense tracking in sand now is there? There was Wi-Fi access and phones as well. I sure hope that this place is still available on my next trip to the area as I will certainly make it my first choice. Thank you Trudy for providing such a great beach retreat.

“Wonderful Vacation!!!”

What a wonderful week. This property had all the comforts of home with the ocean and beach a few steps away. Loved the house! Clean, quiet and well equipped. Location was close to everything we wanted to see and do. Some great restaurants in the area as well. Only negative we had was the shelly beach. Although wonderful for collecting shells it was very hard to walk on and we missed the sand between our toes. Great for a relaxing vacation!!

“Great Spot For A Family Vacation”

Reviewed 14 Apr 2013

As parents of four children, we were looking for some place where we could all relax and spend quality time together. We definitely found it! The bedrooms were perfect for the kids, and the master bedroom was quiet and bed was comfortable. It had everything we needed from dishes to beach towels. We spent most of the time on the beach or sitting and listening to the surf in the living room. St. Augustine is a very short drive and there is a grocery store nearby. Perfect getaway if you need to relax.

Owner's reply: We try to make the home as comfortable as we would want it if we were to stay there with our family. We're so glad you had a restful vacation!
