Summer Place 651, Studio, Sawgrass Beach Club, Sleeps 4
Sawgrass Beach Club
A studio condo that sleeps 4, Summer Place 651 is a convenient and budget-friendly option for a small family or good friends. For less than the price of a hotel room, you have not only sleeping quarters but also a kitchen, a balcony, and the rose-tinged beach just a stroll away. And with the money you save, you can buy a temporary membership to the Sawgrass Country Club during your stay. This is available only to guests staying in a rental where the owner has a membership—and the owner of Summer Place 651 does indeed have one. Temporary membership gives you access to 2 swimming pools, a 27-hole golf course, tennis courts, a fitness center, activities for the kids, and beachfront dining. For details, contact the club directly.
As for Summer Place 651 itself, the condo impressively light and airy, thanks in large part to the sliding glass doors that open onto the balcony. Furnished with a table and chairs, the covered balcony is an inviting spot to linger over coffee in the morning or cocktails at night while the salt-scented ocean breeze rustles through the trees. You could even dine out there—or you can sidle up to the breakfast bar, which seats 2.
The breakfast bar doubles as counter space for the kitchen. Though compact, the kitchen includes a full range of cookware, tableware, and appliances, from a full-size refrigerator/freezer and oven/stove to a microwave and a coffeemaker. There’s even a dishwasher, freeing you up to spend more time at the beach. And speaking of time-savers, Summer Place 651 has its own washer and dryer as well.
The main area of the studio features 2 queen-size beds, along with a sofa and an armchair for stretching out to watch TV or surf the web via the free WiFi. If you need to get some work or studying done during your stay, there’s a cozy alcove with a desk.
The bathroom is surprisingly spacious, with a separate vanity area that offers a wealth of storage and counter space. The combination shower/tub means you can wake yourself up with a brisk shower in the morning, then wind down with a leisurely bath at night. We’ll provide all the clean towels you could possibly need, and of course the beds will be impeccably made up when you arrive, with extra bedding at the ready.
Another perk of Summer Place 651 is that, in addition to optional access to the Sawgrass Country Club (one wing of which is right across the street from your condo), you can also purchase optional access to the exclusive Ponte Vedra Inn & Club during your stay. Even without temporary membership to either club, however, you’ll find plenty to do during your stay. Public beach access is across the street, so you can stroll to the pinkish coquina sands and the Atlantic Ocean in just 5 minutes. Once there you can swim, paddleboard, canoe, kayak, windsurf, search for shark’s teeth and seashells, or simply bask in the sun while watching dolphins frolic in the surf. And because Summer Place 651 is so close, you can mosey down there any time you want, without having to load up the car with a day’s worth of gear, then battle traffic and hope to find a parking space.
Summer Place 651 is just a 15-minute drive to TPC Sawgrass, home of the PGA Players Championship every May. Also nearby is Guana River State Park, home to a cornucopia of bird life and a popular spot for biking, hiking, canoeing, kayaking, and fishing. And be sure to set aside an afternoon to take in the sights of historic St. Augustine or a day for a trip to the Orlando theme parks—they’re all within reach.
Please note that during high season, Summer Place 651 requires a 1-week minimum stay with a Saturday arrival. That’s because places like this are in such high demand. So don’t lose out: Book your stay at Summer Place 651 today.
