Condo was as described other than it isn't very close to the beach. Other than not having a very good view everything was nice. Great location and very nice pool.
Response from the owner Hi Jane, Thanks for taking time to review our vacation rental condo. I am glad you had a great vacation.Just to clarify for potential future guests, The website photo shows the exact water view from our balcony. It is Less than 200 yards from our balcony back door to the beach using our private beach access . You can see the beach access walk over from my photos. It is just past the pool. Thanks! Trish
“Comfortable and Convenient”
Overall, we enjoyed our stay in this condo. It appeared well cared for and was very comfortable for our family of five. Convenient to beach and walking distance to lots of restaurants, shops, ice cream, etc. Only negative was that is was definitely dated, but I think that was reasonably reflected in the price. Pretty sure the appliances were the same ones we had in the house my parents built in 1977. Surprisingly, they still seemed to work for the most part. Mattress in master was comfortable, but might be time to replace the twins. If you have young children, know that it is the farthest unit away from the beach, so a bit of a walk with all your gear. Overall, a reasonably priced, well located, comfortable spot at the beach!
Response from the owner Thanks for choosing our beach condo! Sorry that you felt our relaxed beach style was out of date. Actually rugs, the interior and exterior paint, mattresses, and sofa, have been updated within 3 years. The appliances are certainly not as old as you indicated! The complex wasn't even built yet! Rest assured we have a Service contract which would provide a repair or replacement within hours if required, while you relax on the beach, or head out to explore St Augustine. If you missed a meal or were inconvenienced in any way we would find a way to compensate. We spend lots of time in the condo and my husband loves to cook, so the appliances are older but completely functional. A kitchen renovation is in planning stages. Lastly, in regards to the location of our unit, While it may be the "farthest unit from the beach" , but Island South is a small 36 unit complex. It is just under under 100 yards from our door to sand, with the pool midway if you need a break! The upside to our unit location is a great private deck with a view of the beach and pool, and an awesome breeze ! Cheers, thanks for taking the time to post a review.
“Location, location, location”
I give this rental an excellent rating not because there aren't some flaws (a bit outdated decor, 3rd floor could be an issue for some) but because it is perfectly located on a beautiful beach. The interior is a bit dated, as I said, but it is quite comfortable. Very workable kitchen with a dishwasher, washer & dryer, air conditioning, and very comfortable furniture & beds. Seriously, my main worry was that the bed would be too uncomfortable for me to sleep (as is often the case in hotel rooms), but the king-sized bed was just perfect. While being steps from the beach, you are also just a few minutes from just about any restaurant (local or chain) you could imagine, some within walking distance or just down the road. You are also just a few minutes from the awesome historic downtown with plenty of parking.
“We loved this condo!”
A friend and I stayed here the week after Labor Day. It is a great condo. Every unit faces the beach from the huge balcony, from which we Had a beautiful breeze every day. Great tropical decor, the king bed was very comfy. Clean, everything you need for a vacation, including being on the prettiest stretch of beach. (No driving allowed on this section). Priced very reasonably, the property manager was accessible, the grounds were very pretty, well maintained. Close to everything you need, we drove and parked to the old town. The only cons were that it was closer to the road, and that stretch was not as traveled as some. And the twin beds were saggy, if you want a firm mattress stake your claim to the king size! And no elevator for those who cannot do 3 flights of stairs. ( for me it was added exercise, so I saw it as a plus). None of these cons were really significant, and we enjoyed our stay, and hope to be back soon.
Response from the owner Marcia, thanks for taking time to review our vacation home and I am glad you enjoyed your stay! We have just purchased 2 new twin mattresses to ensure a perfect nights sleep for everyone! Trish
Stayed here over Labor Day weekend and it was wonderful. Love the way the place is decorated and the terrific layout. Condo is clean, comfortable, cozy-- really feels homey. You can see the ocean from the back deck and there is a nice breeze. A very nice retreat home.
Response from the owner Thank you Patrick, I am glad you enjoyed our vacation condo! We hope you will return soon. Trish
“Very good vacation”
The beach is great and was not crowded when we stayed. Our kids loved the beach volleyball court. The restaurants and shopping were great. We loved the ropes course over the alligator farm. The resort pool was also rarely crowded. The room was very nice. This is a great place to stay with a family.
Response from the owner Thank you for taking the time to comment on your stay at our Island South Condo. We hope you will visit us again!
“Love this condo!!”
This Island South Condo is perfect for a week of fun at the beach, delicious local restaurants, and many close by activities. The condo is beautifully decorated to give you an island vacation feel. It is spacious and has a wonderful large patio deck. I look forward to going back.
Great stay at 'The Top of the Palm'. The unit was clean and spacious with a balcony with a view of the ocean. Unit is in a great location with a lot of options for food and fun close by. Being able to walk to the beach from the unit was a huge plus. My stay was on memorial day weekend, and the beach beside the unit was not crowded. All in all the beach access of the complex and the little luxuries (washer/dryer and kitchen) helped make our stay great.
“Wonderul location and comfortable for families”
This was the perfect vacation spot for our surprise Mother's Day weekend trip. The location was wonderful and it was a comfortable and relaxing stay for our family. The check-in and check-out was quick, easy, and painless. The condo was within close driving distance to all the historical sites and restaurants. Direct access to the beach was a major plus! The condo had plenty of space for a big family with a baby. The king-sized bed in the master bedroom was an absolute dream! The nice view of the beach and the accompanying breeze was relaxing. It was certainly a home away from home. This was our first time not staying in a hotel or inn, and the experience was great! I'm not sure we can go back to staying in hotels for vacations anymore! I am certainly recommending this condo to everyone I know. Thank you to Patricia for helping us plan a memorable vacation!
Response from the owner Rosa, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. It was fun to be a part of planning this Mothers Day Surprise and I am so glad it was an enjoyable stay for your family! I hope you will be back for another visit soon! Patricia
Easy check-in and check-out. Plenty of space for our party of 5. Great location, just a short walk to the beach. We had a wonderful view rom our balcony. Close to restaurants and places of interest. We most enjoyed the closeness to the beach. Also liked the fact that we didn't have to drive a lot. Was able to walk to some of the restaurants. All in all, we had a great trip.
