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!

Nature Paradise

  • 5 of 5
Simple elegance created the perfect beach environment for blissful morning meditation and coffee. Every detail is thoughtfully cared for and provided. Perfectly clean and organized, we never wanted to leave! Viewing the glorious sunrises (each day unique) from the balcony inspired us every morning to breath deeply and revel in the pristine nature before us. The wildlife was everywhere. Bunnies and turtles, dolphins and pelicans, this morning a red cardinal perched on the railing. Also, looking west provided the perfect sunset views and cloud gazing. This morning the surf was up and in the light of dawn I thought I saw a surfer, but lo and behold it was a pod of dolphins riding the curling waves. You can walk for miles, ride bikes on the beach and swim in the magnificent pool, or rest for hours on the shaded balcony, the perfect beach retreat.

Our second visit to this fabulous penthouse was the predictable spotless, squeaky clean, modern, luxurious home, equipped with every imaginable thing you would ever want in every room. The 4th floor unobstructed view from the private 28' balcony gave us a breathtaking infinity view of the ocean. The living room and master bedroom's ceiling to floor glass walls/doors offers a panoramic 24/7 view of the beach and ocean. The kitchen is a chef's dream and to our surprise, this year included brand new all stainless steel appliances. We loved the fridge ice/water dispenser and it tasted better than the best bottled water. If you like all this plus plush, thick, sparkle-white bath towels, specialty soaps, 3 flat screen TV's, a huge walk-in glass shower (plus another bath) and 2 king size bedrooms with huge closets, this is the place for you!! And, you will really appreciate the warmth and friendliness of the owners who aim to please! This is definitely a 5 star plus!

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
