Perfect Vacation: Ocean, Beach, River Views All In One Very Special Place

This direct oceanfront, 2 bedroom/2 bath one level condo is unique as it has both ocean views and views of the Intracoastal Waterway Matanzas River! Every room and balcony has breath-taking water views!!! And in 300 steps (no stairs) you are on the perfect beach for swimming, walking, riding a bike or sunbathing. Or cross the road to fish on private dock or launch your kayak in the river. This is the place for your next vacation.

What makes this vacation destination so special?

* SPECTACULAR OCEAN FRONT & MATANZAS RIVER VIEWS

The unit is direct oceanfront, located on Crescent Beach in St. Augustine, Florida. What’s special are not only the breathtaking view of the ocean, but also of the Intracoastal Waterway and Matanza River and the low lands to the West. When you step through the front door you’ll be surprised at the sight of the ocean and be drawn to the private balcony to take it all in. Wait till you see the sun and moon rising over the ocean!

As you sit at the breakfast bar, you’ll have a hard time choosing whether to look at the river and the boats going by, or at the ocean and the waves breaking on the beach. The unit is special in that every room has water views! Few places offer this. From the dining area or from the many front porches you’ll love watching the sky change to all the colors of the rainbow, and be reflected in the river as the sun sets. The sight of the river flowing by is mesmerizing, calming and so peaceful. It also triggers the anticipation and excitement of going out and enjoying all the outdoors has to offer!

* PROXIMITY TO THE BEACH AND THE INTRACOASTAL & RIVER

In 250 steps you are on the beach. Crescent Beach is kid friendly with tidal pools and wonderful sand for building castles. You can go for miles on the warm beach walking, jogging, scavenging for seashells or biking. The soft white sand and clear blue water make this one of the best beaches in Florida. It's a very wide beach with room to spread out and play: bodysurfing, surfing, boogie boarding, sailboarding, kiteboarding, surf fishing, sea kayaking, kite flying, Frisbee, bocce, and football. And, of course, just sunbathing and relaxing.

For an alternative to the beach, bring your personal water-crafts and fishing gear. There’s access to the river directly across the street for launching kayaks, canoes and paddle boards. Also there’s a private fishing dock. You might just catch dinner. The complex is only one of three that offer this option. If you have a boat on a trailer, there are several boat ramps within 3 miles. Ask about availability of onsite storage for your boat during your stay.

* WELL-APPOINTED AND FURNISHED UNIT

Many updates were done to the unit in 2009 and in the past year. You’ll be surprised at the quality of the furnishings. This is not your traditional beach front rental.

From the balcony there is nothing between you and the ocean but natural vegetation, dunes, and sand. It's a spectacular view, from the moment dawn breaks over the horizon, to the night sky glittering with stars. The murmur of the surf, the sight of pelicans and other sea birds, and the breezes from the ocean, make the balcony a delightful place. The sliders to the balcony are new and easy to open. Storm shutters are easy to open and close also.

The interior of the unit is as wonderful as the great outdoor area. It’s an airy open floor plan. Unlike many units, from the living room you can see through the unit to the dining area and out the window to the Intracoastal Waterway and Matanzas River.

The living room has two couches for relaxing, while watching the 50" flat screen TV. There’s cable with and DRV recording ability, so you won't have to miss your favorite TV programs, a DVD player for movies, and WiFi. If you need an additional bed just open ottoman for a full size twin bed.

The kitchen has been updated with new appliances and granite counter tops. Seating at the bar is a great place for kids. If you love to cook, this kitchen has everything you need, from quality cookware and utensils, microwave and coffeemaker, a blender for making tropical drinks or smoothies and an ice cream maker. A large selection of herbs and spices are in the cabinet for you to use or try. Use what you want, don’t worry about replacing what you use up, just add it to the shopping list to be replaced for the next guest. If you’re not into cooking, there are a number of wonderful places nearby for breakfast, lunch and dinner

This unit is also unique in the kitchen is located between the living room and dining area in an open layout. No walls here to block the view. This is great as the dining area is separated from the living room. One can linger over have dinner and others can watch TV or play games in the living room.

The master bedroom makes it easy to forget you’re on land when you sleep at night; from the comfortable king size bed, see the ocean waves and open the sliding glass doors to the balcony to feel cool breezes and hear the lulling sounds of waves on the beach. There is ample storage, walk-in closet and a 32" TV.

The master bathroom will surprise you with the large Jacuzzi tub, which is a wonderful place to relax at the end of a fun-filled day! Kids love the bubbles, too. There are double sinks, a separate toilet and shower area.

The second bedroom has a king size bed with ample storage, and direct access to the second full bathroom. 19" TV. Watching the water flow by in the river is almost as soothing as hearing the waves on the beach from the master bedroom.

All of the towels for both bathrooms, beach towels too, are provided. As are all of the linens, blankets, and pillows for the beds. A full size washer and dryer in the unit make laundry easy, not that you want to do laundry on vacation. Bring your favorite beach toys and chairs. The balcony makes a great place to store these.

* ON SITE AMENITIES

The complex is gated and offers, an unheated pool, 2 tennis courts, an outdoor grill on the large sun deck, beautiful grounds, covered parking, uncovered parking, an elevator, (no carrying the bags up the stairs here) and on site management for assistance. If you have boat, ask about onsite parking for it during your stay.
