About Katrina Gaines

We bought our beach condo 15 years ago and we love it! We live in Orlando and we try to spend as much time there as we possibly can, we named it"Spare Tme"! I'm a first grade teacher and my husband is a developer, so on the weekends we really want to relax at the beach.The thing we love most about Summerhouse is its family atmosphere. We were looking for a condo that was not a high rise and low density... we found the perfect condo for us! I love how one side of our condo looks out over the intracostal and the other side we see the ocean. It's awesome to have water on both sides! It was important to us to have a corner unit, because we didn't want to feel closed in and we wanted a window on the side of our unit. My favorite thing to do at our beach condo is to open up the front door and back doors and to feel the AMAZING breeze we get... the cross ventilation is the best! It's for sure our "happy place" and our cozy home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

It was a very good experience. Katrina is very helpful and understanding. She promptly responds to all queries. In my case she went over and beyond by helping me adjust the dates after confirmed booking. Property is clean and lot of groceries and amenities. We had everything we need including kids beach play set.. Amazong deal for the price..

I would recommend this to anyone and offcourse will come back myself.. Thanks for the owners for being helpful understanding and just awesome people.

The condo was clean and well stocked with pretty much everything you would need for a beach stay.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the condo went very well. We stayed there shourtly after huricane matthew had passed through, so we were a little worried, but the entire property was clean and usable. The beach access, pools and courtyards didn't seem to be effected by the storm at all. The interior of the condo was just as nice. The whole place was decorated in a beach theme (as you would expect) and done tastefully. There were plenty of dishes, sheets, towels, and beach supply's. The entire place was clean, up to my standards or anyone elses that I could imagine. The location was very quiet. There was only one negative about the place and that was that you couldn't really see the beach from the balcony (a beach view wasn't advertised either), but for the very affordable price, I would sacrafice that anytime. Much better than a hotel. I would stay there again. Also St. Augustine isn't too far of a drive. The fort and lighthouse are a short beachside drive away. Most of the nearby restaurants seemed small and we were a little skeptical at first but the food and service was excelent everywhere we went.

Peaceful and quiet

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed our stay at the condo. Great location: the beach wasn't crowded and St. Augustine was only a short drive away. The condo has a great layout, and includes most everything you need for your stay.

We definitely plan on staying here again!

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time visiting the St. Augustine area. This rental property was a great fit for our family of 5, including our 3, 6, and 9 year old children. The walk to the pool was quick and the beach was only a few steps further. {NOTE: I wish the walkway leading to the beach had ramps instead of stairs (see aforementioned 3 kids + beach gear & a wagon... So. Many. Stairs!)}.

We chose a great time of year (late-September) as the beach was empty and lots of popular touristy spots (Fort Matanzas, Castillo de San Marcos, restaurants, etc.) weren't crowded at all! I admit to having a love/hate relationship with the location of the condo -- awesome that it was so quiet, peaceful, and secluded, but a bit of a pain when you needed to make a quick run out for food, etc.

I will add that the condo was quite clean and FULLY STOCKED with everything imaginable! In fact, the night of our arrival we drove All. Over. Town. stopping at EVERY grocery store, drug store, etc. looking for a boogie board for our 9yo daughter. We spent abt 45 min. driving around before we found what had to be the last remaining boogie board in St. Augustine! Our daughter enjoyed using it at the beach the next day, but on our brief walk back from the beach, we came up the back side of the condo and spotted SEVERAL boogie boards & beach toys on the back balcony, which we hadn't realized! Haha!

We are thankful for this great find, and will be certain to book here again. The owner is VERY kind and accommodating, and her communication is on point! I highly recommend staying here for your next St. Augustine vacay!

Just like home, BUT AT THE BEACH.

  • 5 of 5

The condo was so cute and clean. The beachy decor was after my heart. Katrina provided all the amenities you could ever need; from lots of linens, to sand toys, to beach books and magazines, to any drink glass you can think of. The pool was fun, the other guests in the complex were nice, the resident turtle came out to say hi, the complex staff were very welcoming, there are recycling recepticles, and the beach was perfect! My family felt right at home, and we hope to stay here again on a future vacay!
