Spacious and Close to Beach
We enjoyed our stay because the condo was very spacious for our family, oceanfront, and a five minute walk to the beach...it was a little further to the pools. Wouldn't hurt to bring a little pull cart. You will have to drive to restaurants, shops, and sites but everything is fairly close. There are many things to do in St. Augustine. Marineland and Fort Matanzas are right up A1A. Flagler Beach is a few miles south. Since this is a gated community, be prepared to provide driver's license numbers, tag numbers, names of all guests ahead of time. You will have to print out parking passes for each vehicle. We did have one guest use a different vehicle than the one listed and luckily was not a problem at the gate. I used the app provided in the link that was sent and found it very helpful and handy to have. The condo was presentable and the basics had been cleaned, but was in need of refreshing and deeper cleaning in certain areas. The carpet needed cleaning, the pots and pans needed replacing (most of them had many scratches with the nonstick surface peeling. We did find a couple we could use), the comforters did not feel fresh, and some kitchen/bath cabinets and drawers needed cleaning inside. There were a few items overlooked in the general cleaning to get ready for our arrival. They did offer to come back and clean those things, but we declined. We either did it ourselves or decided to overlook it. If you like to read, know that it is a little dark in the bedrooms and the living area--there is no overhead lighting. The kitchen could have used a few more baking dishes of various sizes. A map of the property would have been nice (unless I missed it somewhere in the app). We had to hunt for the pools. We also had to hunt for the golf course and club house. As it turned out, the golf course was closed for the main part of the week. If you are there to play golf, it wouldn't hurt to check on that ahead of time. Just a little more attention to detail would have bumped up our evaluation to four or even five stars.
