Hibiscus 201-D Ocean View, 3 pools, St Augustine Beach
Description from the manager
Claim your stake on beautiful St. Augustine Beach by staying at our condo at Hibiscus 201-D. The ocean view is beautiful, the amenities superb, and the accommodations luxurious. You'll feel right at home in our little piece of paradise on the beach!<br/><br/>Tropical landscaping and big blue skies surround you at Hibiscus 201-D, located on the second floor of a building overlooking one of 3 swimming pools. Step out onto our balcony and you not only glimpse the ocean, you see palm trees, sparkling water, and all the beauties of this first-class resort. The murmur of the ocean waves is your soundtrack as you gaze out at glorious St. Augustine Beach!<br/><br/>Our balcony has casual seating and a bar-style drinks table, making it a great place to watch the sun rise, enjoy cocktails after a busy day outdoors, and count the midnight stars. Because it's covered, you can enjoy it in any weather, and with our free wireless Internet service, you can even bring your phone or laptop out here to check your messages and update your Facebook status.<br/><br/>Just in through the sliding-glass doors of the balcony is our living room, with a comfy sectional couch, a big new HDTV with DVD player, and plenty of space for the whole group to unwind. The views are terrific from here as well, and you'll look forward to returning to Hibiscus 201-D each evening from your sightseeing adventures.<br/><br/>Cool tile flooring connects the living room and dining area at our condo. Our dining room table seats 4 beneath a modern chandelier that offers bright lighting, making this area great for playing cards and board games. Bring along the Apples to Apples and hope for one day of rain, when the whole family can reconnect over some simple fun! You'll be ready for a break from sightseeing, and you'll love cozying up at Hibiscus 201-D with bowls of popcorn, a blender full of frosty drinks, and the people you love most!<br/><br/>Of course, the newly renovated kitchen at Hibiscus 201-D can be used for much more than simply preparing drinks and snacks. You'll find new stainless-steel appliances here, handsome wooden cabinetry, and a breakfast bar with comfy stools and dropped lighting. If the fishermen in your group bring in a bucket full of fresh catch, you'll be ready with all the cookware, dishes, and utensils you need to prepare a seafood feast! And you'll love the time-savers in the kitchen, from the dishwasher and microwave to the coffeemaker and toaster oven.<br/><br/>Speaking of time-savers, we also have a washer and dryer at your disposal while you stay here. We've provided all the linens, blankets, pillows, and towel sets you need for the beds and baths, so don't worry about packing any extras. You'll find it all here . . . and you can keep those swimsuits fresh and dry no matter how many times the kids scamper back to the pools and the beach each day!<br/><br/>At the end of the day, look forward to a restful, luxurious night's sleep in the 2 bedrooms at Hibiscus 201-D. We know that one of the most important parts of a successful vacation is feeling refreshed and well-rested each morning, and we think you'll love the accommodations at our condo. <br/><br/>The master suite is beautifully appointed, with sliding-glass door access to the balcony, an ocean view, a king-sized bed, and a huge new HDTV. The master bath contains both a tub and shower option, and everything is freshly renovated and a pleasure to use. <br/><br/>The 2nd bedroom is ideal either for kids, friends, or a second couple traveling with you. It contains 1 queen bed and 2 bunk beds with twin-sized beds, plus a large TV. It's convenient to the second bathroom, which also contains a shower and tub option. No waiting in line at Hibiscus 201-D!<br/><br/>And you'll always find something new to do at the Hibiscus condominium complex. There are 3 swimming pools here, a Jacuzzi, a gym with state-of-the-art exercise equipment, and a tennis court. A private boardwalk leads you down to St. Augustine Beach. And you're just minutes from downtown St Augustine.
Additional amenities include: beach, fishing, washer / dryer.

The condo is in spectacular location!!! The beach is amazing and is just a short 3 minute walk. The complex is nice and well maintained. We had an overall great experience. The condo is nice and generally well kept, could use some professional cleaning. The dishes didn't seem clean so we had to wash them before use. Not a big deal though. However, on our last night we returned home to find some very friendly giant palmetto bugs crawling around the kitchen. The dissappeared into the kitchen cabinet before we could catch them. Not cool. Made me double wash the dishes before use after seeing that. Also, directions should be proofread. The condo # was misspelled as 210-D on the directions we picked up with the keys so was a bit confusing. Also, no instructions on what to do with the keys at the end were provided. Tried to call the emergency number about 10 times (as well as left a message which no one returned by the way) to find out where to leave the keys when we left. Finally had to call the nice agent we rented the place from to help out. I guess emergency line took a day off for Labor Day as well :) Overall, great vacation spot though. Send in the exterminator and we might return again :)

The hot tub jets did not work well at all, but they were hot. The pool was great, two very warm, one cool for those that like cool. Were awakened two nights in a row (4:30 am, 3:30 am) by apparently drunk partyers in the hot tubs. Great location on the beach! Our condo was not beach front, but was a very short walk on the board walk. If you are a really good tennis player, you will be disappointed with the one tennis court, not in good repair, but it was good enough for the two of us to bat the ball back and forth. The house keeper missed dirt under the couch and some grime on some kitchen cabinets, but overall, clean and in good repair, appliances and Tv's worked great. Great to have a washer and dryer right in the unit. Very comfortable unit, nice furnishings. We shall definitely return!!! The nicest beach in FL, and we have been to a lot of them! Not at all a far drive from the sites to see and the incredibly beautiful Old St. Augustine city, a very quiet, clean city, but with many activities. This shall be our vacation destination for a few years until my wife gets all the historical sites taken in and we get our fill of fabulous body surfing. My wife has "St. Augustine on My Mind", on her mind, a great book that was in the unit to show one all the fabulous sites, she plans on buying her own copy (and she highly recommends it!) Thank you Vrpros for a great vacation, your are Pros!
