A new luxury motorcoach park called The Fountains of St. Augustine is expected to open in the coming months off State Road 16 near the Interstate 95 interchange.
Work on the project at 3960 Inman Road has already begun, and the plan is for the first 14 units — called casitas — to be open some time before summer.
The project will be similar to a timeshare but not exactly the same where visitors will rent the individual units and can stay up to six consecutive months.
But this is not some kind of RV park for campers, and instead is aimed towards catering to the needs of a specific set group of people with luxury motorhomes.
“We are developing it as a very high-end, five-star resort,” co-owner Tommy Hammond told the county Planning and Zoning Agency during Thursday’s meeting. “There is no park like this. There is nothing like this in North Florida.”
The units will feature private driveways big enough for motorcoaches and regular vehicles that visitors might also bring. Hammond said the motorcoaches that the resort will attract cost between $150,000 and $2.5 million.
In St. Augustine, the park will offer four different units, from one-bedroom “casitas” to two-story, three-bedroom “grand villas.”
There are also plans for a 12,000-square-foot clubhouse, pools, fitness/recreation equipment and nature trails.
Hammond said the St. Augustine concept is expected to be repeated in about a dozen locations around the country.
Are you planning a trip to Texas with your family in your RV or motorhome? Look no further than this list of the top 2015 RV parks rated for the state of Texas!
Good Sam RV Travel & Savings Guide has already published its listing for the top rated RV parks by each state for the 2015 year. In order to qualify for a listing, these RV parks are rated on a scale of 1 through 10 (with 10 being 'Perfect') in three categories: environment, cleanliness, and facilities. Each park must score 'Perfect' 10's in all three categories.
The result is that only 137 parks nationally scored high enough on Good Sam's standards to be listed in their Guide book. These parks in this Guide represent only 2% of all the parks personally visited and inspected by Good Sam's park consulting team. Also found in this Guide are articles on the RVing liftestyle, travel guides by regions, and even coupons and discounts.
Here we have taken an excerpt from the Guide to show you the top 2015 parks for the state of Texas. We hope this information will help aid you in your travel plans on where to stay and visit while you are in Texas:
