About the owner: Husband and I retired Produce Brokers who were born and raised in the beautiful Sunshine State of Florida in the Miami/Boca Raton area graduating college at FIU and FAU and working for growers in the Homestead area. We eventually became potato and onion brokers so relocated our companies in this area and loved it so decided to live here and retire here. We own a home in Palm Coast about 20 miles from Crescent Beach so are able to enjoy our canal front home and our oceanfront condo. We visit our condo for our personal use and also visit between guests so we can keep it repaired and maintained. I am always available to my guests to ensure the guests have a stress free stay and a wonderful vacation at our beautiful property but provide my guests with the privacy they desire.
Why this property? Windjammer 305 is one of the rare condos that has private balconies on both the west side of this narrow part of Anastasia Island overlooking the intracoastal waterway (Matanzas River) and on the east side overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and Crescent Beach. 305 is a corner unit on the 3rd floor (actually the 4th floor as the building is built on top of the garage which is on the ground floor )so has an unobstructed view over the dunes to the beach and ocean and to the intracoastal waterway which comes very close to the shore at this point. Since 305 is a corner unit in the South building , our front door is at the end of the common walkway so no foot traffic walking pass your condo on way to other units. Each building has an independent elevator, so the only foot traffic is the guests and owners of the units in the South building which has 7 units on each floor. The condo has sliding doors to the balconies from all bedrooms and living room and only has one large window which is in the living room overlooking the beach and ocean. You can stand in the centrally located kitchen and see both views without going into the bedrooms because we installed French doors which can be opened wide. Windjammer is a quiet complex with many long time fiscally responsible owners and the association employs an onsite office manager and a maintenance person to handle any issues outside of the unit such as the pool, trash, pest control, gate access, rules and regulations , parking, etc.
The association does not allow renters to have pets (only owners) and has a minimum rental of 7 days so Windjammer retains a residential feel and not the hotel feel of guests constantly checking in and out. If you would like to stay at a home away from home, well equipped, modern updated, clean with spectacular views and direct access to beautiful Crescent beach and close proximity to St. Augustine, this is the place for you and for us, as owners we stay here too and we love it and think you will too.
