Thank you so much for the beautiful St Augustine beach condo, our family had a blast.
we will return! Thanks again.


Adrienne Guarro
Awe, Norbert, you’re very sweet. Your CONDO property is indeed beautiful! We love that the beach is right outside the door. The outdoor pool area is spectacular so we never looked for an Indoor pool. THE HEATED INDOOR POOL Will be a nice option if it rains! Thanks again for finding dates for us!

Booked our 2017 St Augustine vacation with Sunstate Vacation. We’ve stayed in the Beachfront condo many times before, but it will be nice to only travel 1-1/2 hrs instead of 17 hrs like in the past.Can’t wait to show Beth & Luke the Castile de San Marco & all of the other history there! We’re going June 1 – 5,2017 so I’ll have toes in the sand on my birthday. Yay! Yay! Yay!

The Colony Reef Club is a lovely family resort. The location is great, every condo has a great ocean view. Stay on 4th floor for the best views. The stroll to the beach is short and beautiful,the pool is very nice and the condo+property is well maintained. We will be returning to the resort often!

I was very surprised at how big the place actually was, the video or pictures didn’t give it justice. The price was the best I found in this area as well. All of our party had a wonderful time and it was in a great location. We walked to almost everything, and it wasn’t a very long drive to the beach.


Christina N. Gatica

Thank you Mr. Tuseo

Dear Mr. Meares,

We have thoroughly enjoyed our vacation at the Colony Reef Club property (#1304) during the month of March 2008. Last year our friends, Jerry and Becky Benson, encouraged us to reserve a unit given the good experiences they and their friends (Giacamo’s, Juneau’s, Halsey’s and Supina’s) have had at the Colony Reef during the past few years. We have been so impressed with the friendliness and conscientiousness of the staff and overall maintenance and care of the property that we are intending to return for two months in 2009.

During our stay, our laptop computer was unable to access the Club’s wireless internet system in our condo so I devoted a few minutes each day reviewing my e-mails in the Club’s office reception area. While I was doing my computer work I had an opportunity to observe some of the daily activities of your office staff I would like to compliment you and your entire staff for your dedication and commitment to serving the interests of both the owners and renters of the Colony Reef Club. I was very impressed with the constant level of productive activity of your office staff: Gale, Rene, Nicole and you and your maintenance staff who were always busy with the work of the Club. Each person who entered the office was warmly and cheerfully welcomed by a member of the office staff and their inquiry (question, comment or complaint) was handled in a friendly, timely and professional manner. The staff demonstrated effective teamwork based on a good level of camaraderie and mutual respect for one another. I very much appreciated their willingness to allow me to use the reception area to complete my computer work.
We are certainly looking forward to returning for another enjoyable stay at the Colony Reef Club next year.

Sincerely,
Wayne MacDonald

Dear Mr. Tuseo,

Russ and I can not express enough how much we enjoyed staying at your beautiful condo. Your place had everything that anyone would everneed. We walked on the beach, cooked out on the balcony, saw the morning sunrise and danced to the sound of the waves.

I have raved to all my family and friends and we have some beautiful pictures of our stay. I had a little cry as we packed up and left to return to the cold!

Thanks again Norbert.

My husband loves the sound of the ocean, so he was more than delighted to hear it from our master bedroom each evening. Plenty of room to spread out. The owners are attentive to your needs. We look forward to staying here again.

5 STARS!!
The house is roomy and with a direct access to the beach. The area has a lot of restaurants and the grocery store is only 2 miles away.
The Historic city of St Augustine is charming and if you get bored of the beach there are a lot of things to do.
Kennedy Space center is not that far away, less than 2 hours drive.
Perfect location and comfortable clean house, all you need to have a good time !!

It was so comfortable,clean and beautiful.
My family from out of town stayed with us and it was simply perfect!


Carlie Kerechanin (Greer, SC USA)
This house is amazing!! I came to St. Augustine on spring break from college with some friends and had a great time. We paid such a small price for definitely the nicest place I’ve ever stayed. Easy beach access and everything you could possibly need- blenders, microwaves, a fridge, multiple TVs, wifi, and more. Everything was clean and in working condition. All around, it was a great vacation!


THIS IS A WONDERFUL OCEANFRONT BEACH HOUSE.
WE ARE VERY GRATEFUL AND WILL COME BACK REAL SOON!

Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our time here. the beach house is perfect! The sunrise was absolutely beautiful. We can’t imagine anywhere being better than this was and we hope to return one day.

Thank you again for making this house available at such a reasonable rate. It was a dream vacation!


Dan Damato
This was a highly anticipated vacation that truly delivered. For the moment my family enter the mansion we were treated to one of our best vacations ever. This rental leaves you wanting nothing. Location and amenities are awesome. We split the mansion with another family and had more than enough room and enjoyment. This was a great experience for all.


Me’Chelle Marion Lake
Beach House

We stayed at this beach house for part of spring break and loved it! The house was big enough for our 2 families, beautiful views, huge deck, literally steps from the beach, and plenty to do near by. (We loved mango mangos, downtown and the outlet for shopping and the kids loved the surf lessons from the local surf shop) The house was clean and had many amenities that we enjoyed.


Heather Harris
Thank you! We really enjoyed our stay. Great vacation! Wonderful view. Beautiful, well-kept home. Look forward to staying again in the future!


Lee Ann Franklin
Hi Norbert,

We are back home after spending time the past few days @ #1 12th Street. Our purpose for coming was to have the entire family come together to celebrate my father-in-law’s 80th birthday who lives in Jacksonville. We celebrated this occasion last Saturday night with a meal that resembled Thanksgiving. The house was perfect for the occasion even with the rain. Although we experienced quite a bit of rain, there was still plenty of time to enjoy the beach and Historical St. Augustine. Thank you so much for working with our schedule. Also thanks for letting us park at your office, we so enjoyed walking through the historical St. Augustine. The Ancient Olive on King Street is now my new favorite store. Our trip was an occasion that my father-in-law will not soon forget, he was just thrilled to have both his family and his wife’s family together to celebrate his birthday. Not to mention, he got to take his sons and grandsons to some of his favorite golf courses while we were there. We absolutely loved St Augustine and will definitely be calling you again when we decide to return for another visit.

Mr. Tuseo,

I am in the apartment now and it is great! It was so great to come here to this lovely, comfortable apartment! I can’t wait for my friends to get here tomorrow, I am sure they will be as pleased with the rental as I am. We are all very quiet, and neat, I assure you we will leave the apartment in as nice condition as it was when I arrived this afternoon. We participate in the Night Watch reenactment every year, and I am already hoping that we can make this our home during this annual event. I look forward to posting a very positive online review when I get back home.

Thank You Again,
