We loved the beautiful views! The condo was absolutely perfect! We go to the beach every year and this was by far the prettiest place we have ever stayed. The amenities were great. All the luxuries of home. The view from the balcony was breath taking. We would recommend this place to everyone! We will definitely stay there the next time we are in St. Augustine. Perfect in every way!!! :)

The condo was in a great location and very clean. The beach was not crowded and we were able to drive my 80yo mother to the beach which was a bonus. Very close to historic St augustine which we loved. I was nervous about using Vacation Rental Pros for the first time, but now I will use them whenever possible. Thanks for a great vacation!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Island House. Very comfortable and had everything we needed for a long weekend. The only thing I will mention is that since it was a very windy weekend, the sliding doors (both levels) rattled and whistled continually. In fact, with the doors closed, the curtains blew as if they were open. The owner might want to do some weatherizing around those doors. I would definitely recommend this rental to family and friends.
Our first overall impression when walking in was "What got we now" for a "5 star" location. The view was outstanding and the pool just as well. The condo itself was decorated to the owners liking. Wall paper need attention,toilet seats in the second bedroom and guest-toilet need changing, the sofa and pillows were dirty. The kitchenware was poor and we missed a hairdryer in the bathroom. The master bedroom screen need a new screen. The screen door from the living room has to be repaired again. If the repairs were done and the condo well maintained I would recommend this location to everyone just for the view and the beach.
This location was great for the price. The pool was not overcrowded although, it could use some updated tables and chairs, but otherwise very nice. The view was great from the balcony and we could hear the waves all night, very relaxing. I would have liked the walkway to the beach to be a little wider, but it was very pretty going over the dunes.
upstairs unit beach front with great view. easy access to beach either by driving or walking. we have been coming to this complex for over 30 years. 1 1/2 north and 1/2 south to next condo complex. uncrowded beach. property management made things easy and convenient.
The stay at the beach island house was great the view from the master bedroom and family was wonderful. The only problem I felt was the aircondition may need some repair as the top floor seemed rather warm.

We loved the location of the condo that we stayed in while vactioning in St. Augustine. The beach was gorgeous. Any issue that we had was swiftly handled by the property manager. The only thing negative that we can say about our stay is that the condo needs several cosmetic and maintenance issues fixed (cracks in the walls and ceilings, holes in the screens etc).

We were very pleased with this condo. It is the first time we have ever rented a condo and it was an excellent first experience. The unit was clean and seemd well cared for. The view of the beach is beautiful. The only thing we noticed was that the light at the top of the landing, in front of the 2nd bedroom, flickered when used. We used the on in front of the master bedroom instead. I would highly recommend this unit and would definately stay again if we travel to St. Augustine again.
We were two couples sharing this beachfront 2 bed, 2 1/2 bath condo in a quiet area of St. Augustine Beach, about 7-8 miles south of St. Augustine proper. The ocean views are spectacular. The condo is well equipped and clean, but could use a little TLC. The vertical blinds need a tune-up, many light bulbs are blown, the shower head in bathroom 2 fell apart, and the outside entry door to the laundry room is difficult to keep latched. The reservation and check in/out process was simple and easy via internet, though we had no other, personal, contact with anyone. Overall, we were quite satisfied and would consider this property again, though I'd like to see the minor maintainance issues addressed.
