Sitting pretty in 'the best building' (#4) at Cinnamon Beach, La Bonne Vie is angled to be twice as nice: from bed, and your balcony, get ocean and golf course views. With great privacy, dolphins and sea turtles are the only things you might ever see looking back at you. Another sparkle in its diamond-star rating: La Bonne Vie is pet-friendly, ensuring your furry family is headed for the good life as well.<br/><br/>As cute as a beach cottage, with all the facilities of a celebrated resort, La Bonne Vie hopes you're ready for a bit of the good life? Get the beach vibe, and the beach soundtrack - you just need to provide your happy... family, and some feet ready to hit the sand.<br/><br/>Like to spoil yourself? La Bonne Vie has its fans, those who return each year knowing it has just what they need for the perfect vacation. If lazy days are what you have in mind, then you might miss the Atlantic Ocean sunrises... though you'll only have to trek as far as your balcony to enjoy them. The morning coffee is close at hand too, in the fully stocked kitchen with all cookware, appliances and amenities provided.<br/><br/>While La Bonne Vie sleeps eight, it's a fantastic solution to a problem bigger groups might face: how to comfortably accommodate everyone, and still enjoy each other's company as much as possible? Simply book this unit together with its neighboring units, 433 and 435 - problem solved!<br/><br/>Elevator access gets everyone from the beach or the pool and back, no problem, and you'll be unpacked and unwinding on the balcony in no time at all.<br/><br/>La Bonne Vie's calming beach color palette has definitely enjoyed a designer's touch. Like things to look nice? You'll particularly appreciate the soothing blues and warm neutrals that ease you into a vacation mindset of pure, casual comfort. <br/><br/>A convenient 3-bedroom set-up offers a king-sized master suite, queen-sized second bedroom and two twin beds in the third room. If you're coming with eight guests, the living room's sleeper sofa puts cinephiles in charge of the massive flat-screen into the wee hours. Have light sleepers or early risers? A particularly private floor plan places all three bedrooms in separate corners of the unit, with the master bedroom enjoying its own big-as-a-bedroom en suite bath. Stay extra clean as you choose between a Jacuzzi-style soaker tub, and a glassed-in shower.<br/><br/>Many of La Bonne Vie's returning guests comment on its lovely sense of space, and that everyone can enjoy themselves and never feel in the way. The kitchen, always the center of activity, is not only open-plan to the living and dining areas but is fully equipped to cater even a multi-course family Thanksgiving dinner. A breakfast bar will become a favorite spot to check email (there's free Wi-Fi!), and deep, double sinks make easy work of margarita time.<br/><br/>It's outside, on the ocean- and golf course-view balcony that you'll likely spend most of your home time while at Cinnamon Beach. Kids and pets alike will love this change of breakfast venue, complete with their very own palm tree growing just beside.<br/><br/>La Bonne View is well-suited to small guests, whether they're still crawling or have four paws. The home's massive flat-screen TV is wall-mounted, and an ample amount of kitchen equipment and towels (plus in-suite laundry) mean you'll never want for anything on a supply side. While the beach and two pools, plus countless walking trails, provide endless hours of sunshine, the balcony is well-shaded so you'll never need to worry about pets overheating or kids getting burned. It's a cool and comfortable place to catch up on your vacation reading, too!<br/><br/>The resort's heated pool makes this a great rental not just during peak summer season, but when you want to take advantage of quieter off-peak weeks and weekends, too. If the chance at spotting dolphins doesn't keep kids permanently on the beach, they'll love the Splash Zone water-park and dedicated kids' pool with a gentle slope perfect for toddlers and beginner swimmers.
Additional amenities include: golf, washer / dryer, beach, boating, fishing, biking.Read more
Only problem was the took 3 hours to dry a load of towels. Carpet is a bit worn. Love the beachy feel in decor and accessories. Truly loved the little things the decorator added.
Great Stay at Cinnamon Beach
Left on 07/02/2012 for a stay in June 2012 |
The view of this unit was the best of both worlds - beautiful view and sounds of the ocean, but no one from the beach could see us! The unit was comfortable and clean. Wish there was a more clear, paved path to the beach closer to this unit. The professionals at Vacation Rental Pros were extremely helpful and organized. Will definitely rent through them again - next time in St. Augustine!
Awesome family vacation.

Unit 434 at Cinnamon Beach was amazing! Beautiful views, nice and cold a/c, and all the conveniences of home! The only downside was being so far from Saint augustine.

From start to finish, this vacation was perfect. The condo was wonderful! We loved everything about it. My kids loved eating out on the balcony everyday. We just arrived home yesterday, and my 3-year-old is already asking to go back...and I'm in agreement with her! We will definately be going back, and we will be dealing with for our bookings! Thanks again!

The condo was beautiful, staff was professional and friendly. We will definately be returning but next time for 2 weeks rather then one. Kids rode horses on the beach and 20 mins away hand fed dolphins. It was a vacation to remember.
Left on 04/02/2012 for a stay in March 2012 |
The room had a view of both ocean and golf course, with dolphins able to be seen from the deck. The kitchen and rooms were well appointed, though there was a few small mechanical issues (the slider didn't slide well). The beach was fabulous, and the property was spotless. Also, the club and grille were wonderful, with great atmosphere and wonderful service.

The only complaint would be the dead fish that washed ashore along our beach on day 2 of a 4 night stay. Carpet could use a cleaning. The rest of the unit's details, decorations and amenities were fantastic! Very comfortable, beds and other furniture.

Abundance of towels, kitchen supplies - - did not need anything. Family of 5 very comfortable in 3BR. Decor was perfect for beach - very homey feel. Would stay there again. Beach and golf course views wonderful (top of palm tree off patio and would have 180 degree view). Thanks for seemless check-in and liked keyless entry.

It was a great vacation. The property sits just in front of the ocean and the golf course. You can enjoy the beautiful blue ocean and the green of the golf course at the same time!! All of the furniture was upscale, and the rooms & bathrooms were clean, and nicely decorated. The property is in vey quiet location since it stands far from the noise of the city, but in less than 10 minutes drive, you will find good restaurants, bars or good grocery stores. We will definitely go back to this place!

We loved, loved , loved this condo! It had everything we needed and more. The view of the golf coarse, ocean and sunrises were awesome and the condo itself was decorated with such care, you never had to leave it to feel you were at the beach. The pools were wonderful and the Hammock Community was very private, secure and beautiful.

Second wonderful trip
Left on 11/02/2009 for a stay in October 2009 |
We have just returned from a second wonderful trip to this beautiful condo. It is furnished and equipped to the highest standards which makes for a really relaxing time. During our trip the weather was good with a couple of cooler days. As golfers we sampled 5 of the local courses which were all excellent at reasonable prices. Unfortunately we were unwilling to pay the exorbitant prices being charged to play the Ocean Hammock courses - during our two week break we saw very few golfers playing there - obviously very exclusive! Overall Cinnamon Beach is in a great location with plenty of restaurants and close to St augustine & Daytona if you want to go further afield. Steve Milo and his staff are extremely professional and I would not hesitate to book accomodation from them in the future.

We enjoyed the condo. The beach was a little disappointing. Too many rocks. Long walk to pool. Otherwise, it was a very enjoyable trip. The condo was perfect. Very cute and well stocked with everything we needed.

Great location. Some maintenance needs to be done on the unit such as front door handle falling off and a leak below the kitchen sink needs fixed. Also carpet and furniture could be steamed cleaned. Overall great experience
Great spot to vacation!

We were very pleased with the condo. It was nicely equipped, nicely furnished and very clean. It would be nice to have a list of kitchen items that come with the condo. We did a lot of cooking and our family rented two condos. We were carrying items between condos and trying to remember which condo had the hand mixer. I hope we put it all back correctly. The condo had plenty of drawers for storage, towels and appropriate furniture. The other condo we rented wasn't as enjoyable and had some issues.

We really enjoyed the condo and location. The beach was beautiful and going for walks on it were relaxing and refreshing. The weather was great. As well as watching the sun rise and set. We got a glimpse of a wahle. My only suggestion would be to have the pool open until 10PM.
Suite 434 Cinnamon Beach Condos - Fantastic
Left on 05/12/2008 for a stay in May 2008 | Joan M.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this condo. The views from the condo were so relaxing and beautiful. Although we did alot on our vacation, I would have just been as happy sitting on the balcony looking at the view of the golf course and ocean! The condo owners have done a great job decorating the unit. We particularly enjoyed the "golfing decor" and the "beach decor" which captured both of our favourite things. Our main vacation purpose was to attend the TPC Tournament at Sawgrass and although it was a bit of a drive to the site, we really enjoyed returning to the condo after a day of watching the best golf in the world then relaxing on the patio with a cocktail watching golfers on the 8th green from our balcony. We loved all of the personal touches at the condo and listening to the ocean waves. The condo was very clean and comfortable and very well equipped. We would love to return. Our only wish is that we could have played the Ocean Hammock course but it was private. We would hope that perhaps playing privileges could be extended to Condo renters as well since we are inside of the Gated Community. This would have made our vacation perfect! Although we loved the beach and the facilities provided, we were a bit disappointed that we could not swim in the ocean due to the rocks & reef, but over-all this would not deter us from returning as we can go to other area beaches not far away to swim in the ocean if we choose. We would rate the condo as a+.

We had a wonderful time. The condo has a very beachy feel. We enjoyed the the cheerful decor and colors. We were very happy we were able to bring our dogs. I would recommend this condo to my friends and family. V iews were just beautiful.
Pools wete great, the beach a short walk. The service was great too! The coffee maker didn't work on our fourth day and it was promptly replaced.

Such a fanstic property yet there was no water filter, the water tasted terrible and I had to stock up with bottled water.
Yes I would recommend this property but only after it has a water filter.
