      We had a great stay at the Crowned Pineapple.

      We had a great stay at the Crowned Pineapple. It was especially easy to communicate with the property owner. The condo was as described.

      5/5 Excellent

        Beautiful Beach!

        We had a wonderful stay! The townhouse was very nicely decorated, clean and had all the necessities. Loved sitting on the terraces with palm tree, pool, and ocean views. Bring noodles for the heated pool!

        5/5 Excellent

          Feb getaway.

          It was just gorgeous. Close to beach, restaurants, and shops. 1st time in St Augustine, we just adored it. Lots of history. Definitely a comeback place.

            Everything I expected

            Charlene has done a great job of presenting her property. We very much enjoyed our stay. Only comment on the layout is that there are two bathrooms, but one is downstairs. Which makes sense in terms of having a bathroom available downstairs, but it may surprise people who have guests in both bedrooms upstairs that they will be sharing a smallish bathroom. Unexpectedly, we did run into an issue with a neighbor doing major remodeling creating a noise issue, Charlene was so good at contacting the owner, and even though they continued, we really had only one day that was extremely loud. We had a very nice trip and I highly recommend this property.

              Nice apartment close to a lovely beach with a very nice heated pool

              Apartment is nice and huge but not much sunshine is coming in . It’s kind a dark since both balconies head to north. The master’s bedroom is on second floor but one of the two bathroom s is on first floor. Everything else is great. Charlene is a very good host . She answers always right away.
