Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 6 Sleeps
Grew up in the Jacksonville, FL area, married my high school sweetheart, raised three sons, owned decorating business for 25 years and restaurant owners for 33 years. Six grandchildren, four great grandchildren. Purchased Unit B in 1984 for our vacation place, purchased other two units 1994, renovated the whole building and moved into the Unit C in 1995 and permanently lived there until 2010 and although still our main residence we moved inland to a one level home.
Sally purchased this Apartment in 1994
Why Sally chose Saint Augustine
My husband and I had visited a friends home in Atlantic Beach and realized how much we would enjoy living at the beach so we started looking and found our little piece of heaven. We needed a place close to our business and home in the Jacksonville area that would not take us long to get to and be able to enjoy as our vacation spot and weekends away.
What makes this Apartment unique
The views of the ocean: My husband enjoyed the roughness of the sea during a storm and I enjoyed the beautiful tropical color and calm of the ocean......the best of two worlds. So peaceful and relaxing

Everything was GRAND. The Units were clean and well furnished. Located on a quiet section of the beach with very little traffic. Close to grocery store and restaurants and St Augustine and attractions just over the bridge.
Wonderfully maintained property.
Pet friendly too.
As other reviews have shared, this is a terrific rental with well appointed kitchen and furnishings; attention to detail was appreciated!
Nice boardwalk down to beach with built-in seating. Good fenced area for our dog. We even became friends with the wonderful family next to us in "A."
Would love to come back. Sally has a terrific place and Pat was very kind to meet.
Had a blast
We had so much fun and the property was awesome. Best equipped kitchen in ever seem
We had a great experience! The house was very clean and cozy. Nice ocean views from the back yard!
Beautiful location, steps away from the beach!
Owner was very accommodating with an early check-in. Great quiet location with beach front access. A short drive to St Augustine and many other attractions.
Surfside Retreat B
Surfside Retreat B met all our expectations. The location is perfect. The house was lovely, clean, and just as described in the listing. Since we have a small dog, the fenced in area was so convenient.
Every attention to detail was appreciated. The outdoor patio was nice and the private boardwalk with seating was a nice touch.
We were very pleased with Surfside Retreat!
