Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you once again for having us at your beautiful and inviting home. We enjoyed our trip so much last year, we came back. Everything was just as expected: fluffy towels and a lovely comfortable bed, sightseeing information at the ready, and a long list of yummy restaurants. The recliner was the best seat in the house – great choice. Enjoyed the quiet and comfortable surroundings. The long walks on the beach opened our eyes to reconnect from the busy life we have. We love coming back to your “Paradise in the Sky”. We had a great week of fun and laughter!

The Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5
Words cannot accurately describe the absolutely breathtaking views from the private balcony of this condo. My wife and I spent four nights here and wish we never had to leave. The ocean stretches as far as the eye can see in both directions, and the moonlight reflecting off the waves at night is a sight to behold. Everything in the penthouse is perfectly situated and the beach is literally just steps away! The heated pool was relaxing throughout the day with no traffic in and out; it was just like having a private pool! No crowds, no traffic, just the best weekend imaginable. The owners have gone above and beyond to accomodate us on short notice and have made this the best anniversary getaway possible. I can't say enough good things about our stay; we will definitely be returning many times in the future!

Everything You Need!

  • 5 of 5
Linda and Bill clearly understand what people are looking for in a vacation and it starts when you first make contact. They go out of their way to make your vacation worry free and provide little extras in the condo that make you feel welcome. The condo is spotless and well equipped with everything you need for a great stay. The property is also clean and well-maintained and the beach is as good as it gets. I would not hesitate to return to this property, or recommend to friends and family. We also enjoyed St. Augustine area attractions and restaurants. Our favorites included the South Beach Grill for terrific seafood (a short walk from the condo), the Purple Olive for good food and great service and Osteen's for super fried shrimp and that classic diner experience. The descriptions and photos in the listing are very accurate and reflect the condo's appearance and amenities.

Perfect Stay In Lovely Penthouse

  • 5 of 5
Our stay in your lovely penthouse was perfect. You remembered every small and classy detail. What an amazing unobstructed balcony view. We appreciated the punch key door lock eliminating keys to keep track of. Every room was clean, clean, clean and modern. It was stocked with everything we could possibly imagine from scotch tape to spices. Thank you again for the beautiful floral arrangement that was such an unexpected surprise and nice touch. We would not hesitate to return and will recommend your beautiful beach home to our friends.

Owner's Response: We're honored you chose us for your 50th wedding anniversary celebration, reserved 18 months in advance! It was a joy to provide your first ever tropical bird-of-paradise flowers, and to share your happy chuckles about our penthouse paradise over the phone, especially when I mentioned the LazyBoy recliner! Delightful memories for all!

Five Star Oceanfront Condo

  • 5 of 5
Thanks SO MUCH for the beautiful flowers that arrived this morning. We will give you 5 stars as the best condo we've stayed at in the 40 years we've vacationed in St. Augustine! Thanks for providing such top-notch accommodations! Kev and I are loving your condo and very much appreciate all your kind generosity: the wine, chocolate, toiletries and so many extras! Every time I would need something: scissors, flashlight, rubber band, twist tie, aluminum foil, another pillow, a portable fan, all I had to do was look in a drawer or on a shelf & there it was…it was amazing, you thought of everything. I kept thinking of the word "generous"; you are very generous person and it shows in what you provide for your tenants. Fantastic oceanfront balcony; extremely clean and well equipped. This condo has everything you need and more. Comfy beds, quality sheets and towels. All first class. You can't go wrong

Under-Promised and Over-Delivered!

  • 5 of 5
You exceeded our expectations!! The condo at first sight was breathtaking! All of the extras were amazing: wine, coffee, chocolate, soaps, flowers, waters, snacks. And the VIEW! We were so pleasantly overwhelmed! The binder with all the info and recommendations was terrific. It really helped make planning so easy. We loved riding the bikes on the beach! After riding bikes on the beach, we collected 3 bags of shells and I even found a starfish! We found the door lock keypad very convenient; no key or card to worry about. We have never been so comfortable staying away from home. And the cleanliness of everything was a major plus! We don't want to leave and can't wait to book again. Thank you for making our stay so amazing and stress-free.

Thrilled! Completely Clean!

  • 5 of 5
I wanted you to let you know how thrilled we were with the condo. It was everything you said and much, much more. The 9 hr drive from Knoxville, TN was definitely worth the drive. We felt very much at home with all your extra amenities and wanted to say thank you over and over. We will definitely be contacting you again next year to see if your unit is available. We loved the beach time, the quietness of the unit, the cleanliness of the whole condo community--and let's not forget that beautiful view. Oh my, what a view. I told my husband I've never stayed in a unit that I didn't first have to completely clean to my specifications prior to sleeping, bathing and eating out of the dishes. I admit that's how most of us nurses are anyway! Again, we so appreciate your hospitality and hope to get your unit again!
