Been here a few years, seen the property sold a few times,a few name changes, multiple office/maintenance people have come and gone and it just keeps getting worse. The problem over the yrs has been rent hikes so high that residents are incapable of making this place "home". Recent managers/owners have made it easier to move in but a financial struggle to stay. There's no consideration for people who want to continue leasing, just money, money, money. Any weekend you'll see a moving truck ...the building area is falling apart and be careful what you read before you rent. There are no garden tubs, wooden floors are a laminate type, ths stainless steel appliances are not in every apartment, all upstairs apartments are carpeted throughout and don't let anyone tell you you're right across from the beach. There is no direct access by foot or car. By foot its 25 minutes and by car its 7, however, theres minimal to no public parking because thats residential access. So your best bet is to drive 10+min to jax beach and park in the public parking lot. Beach right across the street, i think not. Lastly, these condos are noisy! You can hear your neighbor on the phone, hear their bathroom fan on through the walls and hear them command their dog to potty whilst sitting on your couch with the windows closed. And with every hurricane it seems to get worse. Put your money elsewhere, somewhere that has a stable reputation, consistent owner and management.
Definitely over priced. Especially the one bedroom. Hidden fees that need to be considered when reviewing the price online. Add $55 for water, $25 for trash and $15 if you have a pet. Also be aware that there is no lighting or fans in the units. Its very old school and you need to find the outlet that is connected to the light switch. Stuff does break a lot since the apartments are so old. Thank goodness they have good maintenance staff. Plan on getting random notices to enter your apartment for maintenance check ups.
The fire pit on the beach front by the office doesn't work and neither does the gas grill at the pool. Its all just for show I suppose. The staff tries to sell you on Ponte Vedra living but where are the amenities they advertise?
I have lived in about 5 different complexes but SeaGlass is by far the best! From the customer service at the front management office to the friendly neighbors, SeaGlass is definitely the best! Some reasons I loved living at SeaGlass include; the very functional/clean/amazing gym that is open 24 hours. I workout between 6-730a or 4-6p and it is never overcrowded, sometimes I am the only one! They also have a wicked awesome TV in the "pilates/yoga room".
Reason #2 is how fast they respond to my emails about things. My AC wasn't cooling down for some reason and the very same day they came out and fixed it! Very nice supplied appliances that I never had an issue with as well.
Reason #3 is that I never hear my neighbors. People that live here are usually between 30s-50s so no partying or loud noise.
I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at SeaGlass and the only reason I am leaving is because I bought a house. If not, I could stay forever!
PS also love the food trucks that are there sometimes and the "surprise" early morning breakfast bags.
My wife and I were very pleasantly greeted and shown the unit. Every time we wanted to see the unit again (2 more times) we were gladly accommodated and we were sold . A great place and really nice personnel - Lynsey
If you are thinking of renting an apartment at Seaglass, you should know that your rent will continue to increase every year, so plan ahead. I have lived at Seaglass for 2 years. My rent has increased each time. I could understand if the rent increased 50 to 75 dollars each year, but this is not the case. In the two years that I have lived at Seaglass, I have seen so many people move in and out. The rent increases are substantial and this is why people continue to leave. If you decide to move into Seaglass, just plan ahead, because your rent will increase close to $200 a month. If you are looking to rent an apartment for a short term, Seaglass may be a good fit for you. If you are looking to lay down your roots and rent an apartment longer than 2 years, I would look somewhere else because the rents are high and the rent increases at Seaglass are substantial. The office staff at Seaglass are very efficient in managing the property. It is a good place to live. The ongoing rent increases are probably dictated by the property owner. I understand that the great staff has a job to do. I personally feel that if Seaglass focused on retaining good renters, and didn't have such substantial rent increases, Seaglass would not have the turnaround it currently has. People are moving in and out of here all the time. The rent increases are substantial, so please factor that into your budget as you decide where to rent.View
