This rare 3-bedroom, 2-bath air-conditioned beachfront condo has one of the very best ocean views available on Hutchinson Island! (The "real" Hutchinson Island, not Fort Pierce's North Hutchinson Island.) Located on the 20th floor penthouse level of the "Princess" Condo in Jensen Beach, both main bedrooms and the living room have full-glass exposure to the ocean. Yes, that is 15 floor-to-ceiling glass windows/doors all facing the beach! The interesting diamond-shape floor plan provides a 225-degree (V-shaped) private balcony with an unobstructed view of the entire beach both north and south, one of only 4 such residences at the 200-foot level on all of Hutchinson Island or for at least 30 miles in either direction. On clear days you can see 17 miles! Breathtaking ocean sunrises greet you in the morning and the all-East exposure protects you from the glare of the mid-day sun. You never see a road and only hear the surf! It is not possible to convey in words or pictures the scope of the water view from the 20th floor when all you see is water. Breathtaking!

This bright 1700 square-foot condo has beautiful tile floors throughout the entry, kitchen, dining, living, and bath rooms as well as the den and the balcony. All furniture and furnishings were decorator-updated in 2002 including the bedroom, living room, dining sets and kitchen appliances. It is typically only used a few months each year, so it is very lightly lived in! The living room (shown below) is a spacious pentagon shape. Two walls are ocean-facing glass (see picture) and the adjoining two are mirrored, giving a wrap-around ocean experience! There are twin Nutuzzi leather couches each with 2 built-in recliners, plus a stuffed chair and 2 end tables. A 42-inch Sony HDTV (1080i) with hi-def digital cable and 2.1 sound and premium movie channels, plus a wet bar, provide your entertainment when the sun goes down. We also have a modest DVD collection and some popular board games.

The dining room seats 6 although the picture below shows only 4 of the chairs.

The master bedroom (shown in 2 photos below) has a queen size bed, a bureau, an armoire with a standard 25-inch cable TV inside, and 2 end tables. A carpeted walk-in closet and a clean spacious bathroom with dual sinks and tub-for-two adjoins this bedroom. The 2nd bedroom (shown below) also has a queen bed, bureau, armoire with cable TV, an end table, and a carpeted walk-in closet. Its bathroom has 1 sink and a tiled shower with grab bars. Both bedrooms are carpeted and have original watercolor seascapes painted by local artists. Both beds have comfortable Sealy Posturpedic firm mattresses. A twin rollaway bed is available to put in one of these bedrooms to add a third person.

The den (not shown) doubles as a 3rd bedroom, and has a comfortable queen pullout couch, a desk, and two chests of drawers. A desktop computer with Windows7 and color inkjet printer is set up in the den for your use with high-speed Internet service. The Internet also has a secure router ("wifi") which means you can use most laptops and smartphones with it.

The bright & clean custom kitchen (see photo below) has every appliance you need (fridge, stove/oven, dishwasher, disposer, coffee maker, toaster oven, juicer, microwave, blender, Foreman, waffle maker, food processor, etc.) and colorful dinnerware for 10. An apartment-size washer/dryer stack is just off the kitchen.

Central A/C converts to central heat in the event it gets chilly during your stay.

Designer ceiling fans in all three bedrooms keep you comfortable in all seasons. We updated all the blinds and verticals in every room for a co-ordinated fresh look.

No other beach condo for at least 30 miles in either directon is higher than ours. Flocks of birds utilize this feature to soar by our windows and gain extra altitude from the air currents which rise off the building, while scanning the ocean below for food. Of the 190 units in our building, ours is the best for bird watching due to our central location on the curve of the building and our 200 foot altitude. We promise that most days you'll see pelicans, terns, hawks, or other wild birds soaring - literally - just out of arm's reach. Plus, enjoy waving to the occasional airplane or helicopter going up the beach at our altitude!

Amazing

  • 5 of 5
It's difficult to describe how wonderful this condo truly is. We rented it for January and February 2014 (still here.) Everything mentioned in the prior review is true. The view from the 20th floor balcony is breathtaking. Manatees, dolphins, sharks and the ever present ospreys. The view is actually greater than 180 degrees, due to the angle of construction. Stayed in quite a few rentals and have never seen one so completely furnished from kitchen items to beach gear. Location is convenient to Stuart, Jensen Beach and Port St. Lucie Staying here will definitely spoil you. Not one, but two of the bedrooms are oceanfront, with floor to ceiling sliding glass doors. Owners are easy to contact and extremely responsive to any questions or that may arise. I heartily and without reservations recommend this place. We've already made plans return next winter.

For the past two years we rented the Penthouse in Jan & Feb. We would still be there this year except we now want to spend three months in Florida and Joe and Pat have repeat renters for March and April.

The condo is immaculate. I mean eat off the floor immaculate. They provide everything, from a computer with printer to postage stamps, scotch tape and extra light bulbs. They have more quality matching towles for both bathrooms as well as beach towles than I have owned in my lifetime. The kitchen is supplied and stocked with dishes, utensils, pots. pans, knives, crock pot, george forman gill.. everyting you can imagine, and things you can't.. Unlike many rental units that don't even have salt. There is array of spices, condiments and sometines wine in the fridge. The bar is stocked with after dinner drinks. It is like you are a guest in Pat and Joe's home. Because you are.

They even set up a Christmas Tree for us when we arrived before Christmas last year..Now that is what I call taking care of your tenants... They happened to be there before we were to arrive. But how special is that.

The local newspaper was delivered to our door each morning. The condo community has many events, you are welcome to participate or not.. your choice.

Next door is a restaurant, go by beach or sidewalk, no disignated driver required.

Having viewed a number of other condos on Hutchinson Island I can tell you this one is the best of the best. You get more than your moneys worth. The view is worth a million dollars. We watched the space shuttle from the balcony.

Enjoy.

Location

Activity and Interests

Jensen Beach has small-town charm and only 3 stop lights downtown! It is adjacent to the friendly city of Stuart, is just an hour north of West Palm Beach, and about 2.5 hours from Disney World. All the typical seaside activities are available locally, such as boat tours, fishing, Jet Ski rentals, oceanographic tours, and endless beaches. Landlubbers will find that shopping, golf, fine dining, casual eateries, local live theatre, and much more are available on the mainland, which is a 10 minute ride over the new picturesque Jensen Beach causeway.

Walkers and joggers can enjoy miles & miles of pleasant sidewalks up and down Hutchinson Island, right outside the front gate. There's only 1 traffic light within 8 miles in either direction.

Notes:

  • The "Princess" was built in 1984 and maintains its reputation as one of the finest and most sought-after condominium properties on Hutchinson Island. It is beautifully maintained both inside and out. The ground floor is common area. There is a game room with ping pong and pool tables, a community room with 56" high-def TV and piano bar which can be reserved for large groups, a weight room with brand new weight machines, an aerobics room with brand new equipment (2 treadmills with TV, 2 incumbent bikes, 2 elipticals, a sit-up board, etc.) and a sauna. There are 19 residence floors, each with 10 condos. The 2 center units on each floor (including ours) have 3 bedrooms, the other units have 2 bedrooms. There is a gated entry from the street and a private dune-walk to the beach. Also outdoors is a clean swimming pool (heated in the winter to 82 degrees) and a Jacuzzi, both nestled behind dune barrier shrubs for privacy and a windbreak (see photo below). Also outside are a bocce court and putting green, plus ample parking and a mini-carwash. Two beautiful tennis courts and extra parking for boat trailers are across the street. We include 4 tennis rackets, 8 beach chairs, 2 coolers, 2 boogie boards, a beach umbrella, a beach bag, and plenty of large beach towels for your outdoor enjoyment. The condominium association activity committee organizes frequent social activities during the winter season, such as golf outings, bingo games, bocce tournaments, holiday parties, and gambling cruises.
