Just 10 miles south of St. Augustine's Old Town, Windjammer sits on the thinnest part of Anastasia Island, closest to the ocean AND Intracoastal Waterway (ICW). You'll feel like you're drifting on a boat, with green and blue vistas on both sides -- tropical dunes and ocean surf east and the ICW and marsh islands west!<br/><br/>Enjoy the Atlantic oceanfront from a 25'-long covered balcony (just natural dunes - no buildings or walkways in sight). Sliding glass doors from the living room and master bedroom open onto this great gathering space. Six big swivel chairs and two round tables offer a ringside seat for sunrises, afternoon sh...ade and cool breezes for meals, reading and web-browsing. The dunes provide homes for our resident sea turtle and rabbits, while flocks of seagulls and pelicans patrol the shore.<br/><br/>On the west Windjammer balconies, you'll enjoy the SO CLOSE Intracoastal panorama and swear you could step on board sailboats, yachts and fishing boats floating by. Tides change the view all day, with emerging islands, sandbars and oyster beds. Pelicans, osprey and roseate spoonbills fly back and forth from the Matanzas Inlet. It's a short walk across A1A to Windjammer's private ICW pier, where kayakers can launch and fishermen can catch redfish, flouder or sea trout. Sunset is an event! <br/><br/>We want you to make the most of your stay. Our welcome book is filled with super tips on local sights, restaurants and activities - (what we wish we had known!) -- and a folder holds brochures and coupons.<br/><br/>Covered, ground floor parking means "first floor" is really a "second floor" view! An elevator makes grocery shopping and beach-toting easy, and a handy trash chute is just down the hall. A stairway near 104's door provides a shortcut to the pool, so you can keep an eye on family or call them in from the balcony. A wooden walkway on the Atlantic side takes you to the sugary white sands of Crescent Beach.<br/><br/>Sunlit from both sides, 104's dining, kitchen and living rooms are bright, beachy and beautiful. The whites of shabby chic tables, the kitchen and beadboard contrast with Nantucket blue walls. Maritime furniture features Cape Cod stripes, starfish and sailboats. Local art and fun seaside decorations are everywhere. Watch HDTV or movies in the living room or master bedroom, play music on a radio/CD/I-Pod player or kick back with a good book. It's all here for you!<br/><br/>Savor sunrise coffees (expresso/cappuccino maker provided) and sunset drinks. A breakfast bar and bar chairs add to our well-equipped kitchen, with an updated flat cooktop, Bosch dishwasher and new cookware and utensils. Shell-bordered ceramic dishes, great serving platters, and palm-etched glassware are top quality. The dining room hutch holds plastic fish plates and goblets for kids. Dress up meals with cool placemats or chic palm linens - beach-stylin'!<br/><br/> <br/>The spacious master bedroom suite, an oasis of palm trees and rattan, guarantees a great night's sleep with its new king therapedic mattress and the soothing rhythm of the ocean's surf. Enjoy your own Samsung TV and Blue-Ray player and relax in the jetted tub (with day-time ocean views!) You'll have lots of room on our long, sand-tiled, dual-sink vanity and a big walk-in closet. The palm motif continues throughout the walk-in shower, art, bedding, lamps, fans and lush towels.<br/><br/> <br/>The guest bedroom, with amazing ICW views, sports a colorful sailboat and lighthouse theme. Comfy new twin beds offer you some options for family or friends.<br/><br/> <br/>Tropical fish and an Anastasia mermaid accent the sunny guest bathroom (also accessible from the main room) and walk-in shower. Matching, plush towels will make you feel at home.<br/><br/> <br/>Behind bifold doors is a full-size washer and dryer, beach towels and bag, a cooler and more. All this and St. Augustine, too? Welcome to Paradise!
Additional amenities include: biking, boating, beach, fishing, washer / dryer.Read more

This condo was just perfect for our beach vacation! The location can't be topped--directly on the beach with a wonderful deck to look out over the ocean. I loved the quick and easy access to the beach, which was beautiful and not over-crowded. The condo (with a well supplied kitchen) had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. My husband and I enjoyed our stay here so much, we can't wait to return! (It would be great for a family too with all the space!) Definitely recommend this condo!
The unit is great & very nicely furnished and decorated.
