Perfect Vacation: Ocean, Beach, River Views All In One Very Special Place
About Ginger Borgman
I'm originally from Texas the land of warmth. After living in Connecticut 20+ years I bought Windjammer as a place to escape. Now living in Florida full time I'm very happy to be back living in the sun and out of the snow and being cold!!! I was a real estate appraiser for 25 years and am now pursuing a new career with a new company I have started. I love to cook and any excuse for a party is sufficient to have one. You will find Windjammer well stocked for doing just that. I love St. Augustine and live here full time. It is a wonderful community with so much to offer in ways of entertainment, (music, theater, concerts), restaurants , outdoor activities, hanging at the beach, hiking, great golf. The history of St. Augustine and all there is to do downtown offers many different venues and events.
Ginger Borgman purchased this Condo in 2013
Why Ginger Borgman chose Crescent Beach
A little background this is a dream come true for me. In the 1980's I vacationed in Mexico in a beautiful condo overlooking the Pacific. Ever since then I had dreamed of owning a place right on the beach. Then in the 1990's I had a small river in my backyard and I loved watching the water flow by. My husband's love of summer vacations at the beach was the incentive to act on my dream. When I walked into Windjammer I knew my dreams had come true. Ocean to the East, Matanza River with low lands to the West, truly the best of both worlds all in one place. I love being here, hope you'll love being here too. Windjammer is the perfect place to escape to. Exterior improvements of the complex that started in August 2017 have been completed in February 2018. The process was long and arduous for owners and for guests wanting to book. If you tried to rent during that time frame I'm sorry that I was unable to accommodate you. The dust and noise was to much for anyone to bear. All is great now with great looking exterior, new floor coverings on the balconies and walkways. Plus nicer railings that offer even better viewing watching the ocean or the river.
What makes this Condo unique
The views of both the ocean and the river are truly amazing. The ocean might have big waves yet the river is calm and flowing by. I love the privacy of the unit, many places I looked at the balcony faced other balconies. Those I felt as if I was in a fish bowl. The location of the unit, though called 1st floor, is not at ground level. It is located above the garage (and no sound from the garage). The unit is accessible by a staircase that only we and the unit next to us use, an they are not here often. The location of the unit within the complex is superior to other units that overlook the walkover. The unit was bought with the furnishings and they are very nice. Everyone that has come to visit keeps asking, did it come with this, and this, and how about this. I have added my own pieces along with art work to make the unit truly a home away from home.

Perfect Quite Beachfront Getaway...
We had a wonderful stay in this condo and on Crescent beach! This was the perfect week to visit the St Augustine area. It wasn't to crowded in St Augustine and the beach was quite ,serene and relaxing. Perfect for relaxing, sun bathing and reading a book.
The condo was fully stocked with everything you needed. Ginger the owner was super sweet and offer a discount for military veterans... Thank you Ginger!!!!
I only have a couple of negatives... I only gave 4 stars on cleanliness due to the fact the couch was really smelly and worn out (sunk in). It really needs replaced. The mattress in the master bedroom really sunk in as well... I had a really hard time getting comfortable so we just moved to the firmer king mattress in the spare bedroom. I think the mattress in the master needs replaced also.
Other than that, the Congo was beautiful! Ginger thought about all the things you might forget and had them in the condo. My husband and I would come back to this condo once the mattress and couch was replaced for sure.
I know some reviews did not like the jacuzzi in the master, however I loved it! I was able to enjoy a relaxing bath while seeing the ocean from the room.
It was a very relaxing vacation overall and we appreciate Ginger for sharing her beautiful condo.
Thank you for your detailed review. I have ordered a new I-Sleep bed that will allow each person to adjust their side to individual comfort level. This will be my 3rd I-Sleep mattress and I promise all will be able to sleep well. I have scheduled the couches for cleaning, though I have been looking at new couches. It is has soft cushions as they are goose down making it a softer couch than others. Very happy you enjoyed the Jacuzzi and had a relaxing vacation. I look forward to you coming again. Ginger
Our Time Away. . . .
This time away from home and on the beach was just what we needed. We were looking for a place to fully recharge after dealing with health challenges that had been very draining. Crescent Beach was a wonderful destination and our condo on the beach made it perfect. Not only was the condo right on the beach, but it was furnished with everything we needed. The decor was relaxing and the furniture comfortable. It was obvious a lot of care had been taken with the cleaning, too. From drinking coffee on the balcony in the morning, to listening to the surf put us to sleep at night, our experience was memorable. We’ll definitely come back to enjoy this again!
Thank you for the review. Recharging at the beach is a wonderful time. And I am glad you found all in good order. Looking forward to your return visit. Ginger
