Colony Reef 3302, 3rd floor, 3 Bedrooms, Heated Pool, Beach
Description from the manager
The sparkling sea, with its spectacular sunrises and balmy breezes, glitters just beyond the swimming pool from your balcony at Colony Reef 3302. Come stay here on Cinnamon Beach and live the good life, St. Augustine style!<br/><br/>You'll find yourself smiling before you even step inside the condo, thanks to the beautiful balcony facing the Atlantic. The kids will probably take off across the big grassy grounds for the oceanfront pool, giving the grown-ups a chance to unwind (perhaps with a glass of something frosty and some tunes!). Put the game on the big flat-screen in the living room for the guys and leave the sliding glass doors open. You can "watch from distance" while relaxing in the sun-kissed Florida air on the balcony!<br/><br/>When it's time to venture in, the smile will remain. Colony Reef 3302 is newly remodeled, and it's all been done with Crescent Beach vacationers just like you in mind! Everything has been selected for comfort, from the ultra-cushy sofas in the living room to the mattresses on every bed in the 3 bedrooms! Seven people can stay very comfortably here, so gather the group together, add a friend or two if you like, and come on over!<br/><br/>There's enough space in the living room for everyone, and the tile floor feels great on those hot walking-in-the-Old-City feet. Chances are, though, several folks in your group will set up at the dining table instead. This is our command center at Colony Reef 3302: it's a great place to set up your laptop (you have free WiFi here), spread out all the brochures you've collected about sightseeing venues in St. Augustine (don't miss the Alligator Farm - the nesting bird area is incredible!), or clear the decks and break out the Cranium. Many a jigsaw puzzle has come together on this table, too. (It can also be used for dining, but you may find yourself eating al fresco on the balcony instead.)<br/><br/>Now, if you're planning to cook "at home" during this vacation, you'll be delighted with our kitchen. We've all stayed at places where a "stocked" kitchen meant 3 forks, a dull knife, and a couple of plastic cups. Colony Reef 3302 is the exact opposite of that: cookware, dishes, and utensils galore, plus all appliances major and minor. There's counter space for chopping and mixing, a microwave for hurrying the food up, and a dishwasher for the heavy lifting afterwards. Bingo - you're out of the kitchen in no time.<br/><br/>The living and dining areas are open and connected, to keep everyone together having fun. The bedrooms, on the other hand, are quiet, private, and restful. You'll love the master suite, which has a queen-sized bed, its own flat-screen TV, and balcony access. Leave the drapes open and see if the sunrise wakes you in the morning! Or slip in to the tub in your en-suite bath, novel in hand, for an hour of water therapy involving bubble bath and blissful silence!<br/><br/>Each of the other two bedrooms has its own TV too, so you can treat the kids to their favorite program at bedtime. The second bedroom has a double and a single bed -- great for 3 children or a couple with a toddler. The third bedroom looks like a ship's cabin, with a single bed and trundle placed almost nose to nose. Great for whispering secrets!<br/><br/>A second full bathroom is convenient to both the other bedrooms, and best of all, there's a laundry room right in Colony Reef 3302! Swimsuits and beach towels return to their dry and fluffy state in no time, and the gelato washes right out of the T-shirts!<br/><br/>Colony Reef is a family friendly complex with all the amenities you hope for in sunny Florida. The oceanfront pool is huge, gated, with plenty of lounging space. There are also a few tennis courts, and a playground. A private walkway leads you over the dunes (look for turtles and rabbits in the lush undergrowth!) and down to the pure white sands. And then the relaxation really begins!<br/><br/>Please book your stay at Colony Reef 3302 now. You'll love how new and comfy everything is here, and the location is just unbeatable. Can't wait for you to experience it!
Additional amenities include: biking, boating, beach, fishing, washer / dryer.

We were unaware that it was apparently turtle season so we were unable to sit on the deck at night with our light on. We also were told by security that we could not hang towels on the deck rails to dry when coming in for the water, even though there were many decks where people had towels on the deck drying. Other than it seemd the security was always flashing his light us from the groud and telling us we were doing something wrong, we had a wonderful time. The condo was super nice with a great veiw and everything we could need to cook and even had beach toys in the closed that the youngest kids enjoyed and beach chairs that the adults enjoyed. Thank you for letting us enjoy your home

It was great. The atmosphere was perfect. It was quite and very relaxing. We did hava a few issues such as the iron was missing, one of the chairs was broken and the tv in the master bedroom was broken. The rental pro folks fixed everything but the TV and gave me a rebate because they could not fix it. I would recommend them and the place.

I was very happy with Colony Reef, but I was not happy with our room. It was not very clean and I also rented another room for the same time, that room was outstanding. I feel this condo could be remodeled a bit and updated.

We had a great time and the condo was perfect! It was very clean and there were 8 of us and we were very comfortable. Loved the large balcony and the views. The staff at the complex were very friendly. Would definitively stay there again and would recommend it to anyone. I think my only recommendation I would make is fix the sliding door in bedroom, very hard to open and close but it really wasn't a big deal. I gave the property management only 4 stars, just because when we picked up the keys from box, the gate code wasn't there and when we went inside to ask, the lady was very short with us, close to being rude. But everyone has bad days.Another lady met me outside when I returned keys and was very nice and everyone was friendly and professional when I called for reservations and were quick to answer my emails. Thank you again for a great time!
