You’ll rarely find another 4-bedroom penthouse with such perfect beach views, let alone one so brand, sparkly new. Sand Dollar I 502 is an especially big unit on Crescent Beach with four full bedrooms and a sleeper sofa – so bring a group of up to 8 guests. With elevator access this 5th floor penthouse suits your entire family, both grandparents or babies in strollers, everybody!
An immense living room has a full wall of windows, with nothing between you and the beach. Three full couches and two armchairs offer everyone their ‘favorite spot’, yet a genius floor-plan separates the area into two spaces: you do your thing, they’ll do theirs – everyone’s happy.
Sitting pretty (and shiny) after a total remodel, the kitchen is a beautiful space in which to practice perfection. Revel in magazine-kitchen details: there’s a porcelain farmhouse sink, large pantry cupboard and new stainless steel appliances.
If not on the beach or at the pool, you’ll likely enjoy much of your time out on the ocean-front balcony. Access it from either the living room or your master bedroom (both of which have Blu-Ray).
Crescent Beach, Fla., is our new go-to beach and Vacation Rental Pros is our new agent, no question about it. We were exceedingly happy with the 5th-floor condo that the customer service rep put us in. A walk-in shower with my 94-year-old mother's room made it perfect for her. Two minor complaints: Morning-facing windows in living areas could have used glare-reducing window treatments so Mother could have looked in that director with less discomfort; and a couple of the bed were inordinately hard. Minor, very minor. We'd stay there again anyway.St Augustine
A big wide, ocean - all yours to enjoy. A gorgeous unit overlooks Crescent Beach and draws the eye towards the Atlantic Ocean. Penthouse living has lots to recommend it, none more so than non-stop, all-yours ocean.
This suite, Barefoot Trace 414, is particularly elegant. Its neutral palette and soft, subdued tones allow your attention to naturally shift outside, towards the blue blues of ocean and sky. Subtle upholstery and tasteful furnishings reveal delightful accents, like a jaguar print rug under the coffee table. A long couch, big love-seat and corner armchair flank wide sliding doors and make a great spot for hanging out and entertaining.
A large ocean-front patio directly overlooks the private boardwalk beach access and Crescent Beach beyond. You’re close enough to not only spot dolphins but to wave to family members playing on the sand.
The spacious penthouse living space has a separate dining area between the couches and kitchen area. The dining table’s glass top melds wonderfully with the floor-length mirrors to create a sense of endless space. Seat six guests for an evening dinner party, then enjoy dessert outside.
A king bed with soaring headboard is decked in delicious tropicals - lime green and flecks of fuchsia. Huge windows match your patio view - seat up to read in bed and spot the ocean hovering above your book.
This fantastic unit sleeps up to four guests total, with either friends or family comfortably accommodated down the hall in the second bedroom. Two twin beds sport birds of paradise flowers across the duvets, suggesting the resort’s landscaped gardens outside. Two full bathrooms ensure everyone’s comfort.
It was my second Time in this Condo. Everything was perfect. The location,the Condo itself,it was well furnished,the kitchen was clean and big,everything was ok.I recommand it to everyone.St Augustine
Watch the sun set over the ocean from your balcony or while soaking in the private pool? Would you rather surf off the beach or float in your private pool? Dine alfresco on the screened-in porch or check out one of the many fabulous restaurants just a few minutes away? Those are the sort of tough decisions you’ll get to make when you stay at our Ocean Delight beachfront house!
When you’re at Ocean Delight, pretty much all that separates you from sparkling Crescent Beach is the backyard. A private walkway takes you directly from the house over the unspoiled dunes to the uncrowded, family-friendly sands.
Then again, Ocean Delight itself is so, well, delightful, you might be tempted to spend entire days without leaving the property!
Let’s start with the pool, surrounded by a large patio with chairs for lounging, with the Atlantic Ocean just beyond. Wide shallow steps on one side of the pool make it easy for just about everyone to access. The pool area is adjacent to the screened-in porch, which has a grill for cooking up your catch of the day as well as a table and chairs so that you can tuck in while keeping an eye out for dolphins and whales beyond the surf.
All this, and we haven’t even shown you the inside of Ocean Delight yet, which we think is at least as spectacular as the outside. The living room is on the 1st floor, with a ceiling that extends right to the top of the 2nd. This accommodates 4 enormous windows that splash sunshine and brilliant skies into the house all day long. Another entire wall is a panel of long, beautiful windows looking out to the dunes, sand, and sea. It's truly a postcard-worthy view. But should you ever tire of looking out, the living room’s 50” HDTV with Blu-ray/DVD player will give you plenty to watch from the plush sectional sofa.
The first floor also contains our kitchen and dining areas, complete with breakfast island bar and plenty of seating. You'll love the conveniences of our well-appointed kitchen, from the refrigerator’s ice maker to the dishwasher. We keep the kitchen stocked with cookware and tableware, so all you need to bring is the food. The dining room can seat 8 people easily, and it even has a wet bar with an under-the-counter fridge.
One of the 4 bedrooms is on the first floor too, along with one of the full bathrooms. It’s tough to say which of the bedrooms is the “master,” as they each have a sumptuous king-size bed, an HDTV, and fabulous ocean views. The 1st-floor bedroom leads out onto the patio, while the 2nd-floor rooms give you easy access to the spacious balcony. Force yourself to wake up early at least once so that you can catch the sun rising over the ocean—you won’t regret it.
Fresh bedding and towels will be waiting for you, as will a private washer and dryer, so you can pack especially light! And there’s free wireless internet access throughout Ocean Delight, so that when you’re not surfing the waves you can be surfing the web.
As spectacular as Ocean Delight is, perhaps the best thing about staying here is the location. Not only is Crescent Beach mere steps away, but you’re also within minutes of the Matanzas River and the Intracoastal Waterway, renowned for great fishing, kayaking, and canoeing as well as for its adjacent biking and hiking trails. Marineland, historic St. Augustine, not to mention shopping and a bevy of restaurants are all a quick car ride away. You can even get to the Orlando theme parks and back in the same day.
At Ocean Delight you can have it all—privacy and convenience, casual living and everyday luxury—and do it all. So what are you waiting for? Book your stay today!
What a beautiful vacation we spend in this location.St Augustine
Our newly updated condo at Windjammer 316 is just a cut above the rest. Not only is it ocean front, it's also a corner unit, so you have splendid views in 3 directions. And it's got 3 bedrooms in an elevator building, with splendid sunrises and sunsets. Perfect!
If you're used to a "beach casual" style of decorating, you'll love the ornate furnishings in our living and dining area. Plush sofas (one of which converts to a bed for 2) dress up the cool tiled floors, while a large HDTV with DVD player waits in front of royal-red drapes. The room is flooded with sunshine from windows in 3 directions. You will also enjoy new patio furniture.
The formal dining table is just beyond the living area, with carved and padded chairs, handsome centerpieces, and a large sideboard. Whether you're cooking a homemade feast in the well-appointed kitchen or simply transferring the takeout from cartons onto plates, the meal will look special when served in this setting!
The dining area offers lovely views of the Intracoastal Waterway, located just to the west of the Windjammer complex. Our condo is located on a narrow strip of land between the Atlantic and the Intracoastal, so no matter whether you like rolling surf, quiet waters, or a bit of both, you can find them just yards away! Every bedroom here has a view . . . not to mention the oceanfront deck, with casual seating and dining space!
You don't have to be a foodie to appreciate the beautiful kitchen at Windjammer 316. Boasting a recessed ceiling, bright lighting, stainless-steel appliances, and wooden cabinetry, this tiled room is a pleasure to use. We've stocked it with all the time-saving appliances you need on a busy vacation, as well as the full complement of cookware, dishes, and utensils. From fresh-caught seafood to your own special recipes, this kitchen is ready for anything! Just pick up some groceries and you're all set!
The living and dining areas are friendly and open with a new HDTV & Blue Ray/DVD player, keeping the group together, with a separate space for the deck when it's time for more private chats or "alone time" with the ever-changing seascape. But when you're ready to retire for the evening, you want quiet and privacy. That's just what each of the 3 bedrooms offers at Windjammer 316.
The master suite is palatial, from the king-sized bed to the private deck access (with ocean views even from the bed!) to the HDTV & Blue Ray/DVD player. The master bath with new vanities offers a fabulous jetted Jacuzzi tub, just the thing after a day of sightseeing in St. Augustine or kayaking on the Intracoastal. There is a walk-in shower and his-and-her sinks in this room, with plenty of space for 2 to get ready in the morning.
The second bedroom has a gorgeous view of the Intracoastal with 2 twin beds and HDTV & Blue Ray player. It shares a full bathroom (shower only) with the third bedroom, which contains a queen-sized bed, desk, HDTV & Blue Ray Player, plenty of closet space and another glorious view of the Intracoastal. The sunsets are spectacular from both of these rooms! Peaceful and very comfortable, they assure everyone a good rest.
At Windjammer 316, all the linens and towel sets for every bed and bath are provided, and the washer and dryer are at your disposal throughout your stay. Our condo is well stocked with spare blankets and pillows, and even has free wireless Internet connectivity. All the comforts of home in a terrific new location!
The rental condo was wonderful and the view was beautiful. We had such a wonderful time. My two boys enjoyed the beach, tennis court and pool. I highly recommend this vacation rental to my friends and family. Thank you for such a wonderful vacation. JessicaSt Augustine
With 2 balconies overlooking the beach, this totally redecorated 2-storey townhouse at Sea Place 11208 offers you a private view of one of the most beautiful coastlines in the world, situated just steps from the oceanfront and the pool. Located in a family-friendly resort, it is a luxurious getaway you will love. Sea Place 11208 is designed for not only fun and togetherness in the living and dining area, but also the need for peace and quiet in the sleeping area. The first floor contains the living room, dining area, kitchen, and one half-bath, while the upstairs offers the master suite, guest room, and second full bathroom. A sleeper sofa in the living room offers bed space for two people, so six can sleep here very comfortably. The entire unit has newly refurbished décor, including all two and a half bathrooms, and with the updated high efficiency air conditioning, it is possible to keep it at a perfect temperature.
The patio areas are accessible by sliding glass doors, downstairs off the living room and upstairs in the master bedroom. With sweeping views of the dunes, beach, ocean, and sky, these spaces will be your go-to havens for spectacular sunrises, leisurely meals, lazy afternoons, and long warm evenings. There's casual seating here, so plan to dine al fresco, check your emails in the balmy sea breeze with the free Wi-Fi, play board games with a frosty beverage at your elbow, and dream away the day with soft sound of the surf in your ears. It's almost guaranteed to drain the stress away! Enter the living room from the patio and you'll experience an old-world Florida ambience. Select a favorite to read from the bookshelf or sprawl out with the whole gang and watch movies on the HDTV (complete with HBO, ShowTime and Starz) or DVD player. Crack open the sliding glass door and let the sounds and scents of the beach waft indoors as you share some valuable family-and-friends time!
Many guests prefer to use the patio over the dining room at mealtime, but the dining area is still a great place to play games, lay out maps of your next sightseeing adventure, or set up the laptop. For quick bites, there is a breakfast bar along the pass-through counter of the kitchen, as well as a sideboard next to the dining room table. The kitchen is part of the action at Sea Place 11208, and you'll enjoy telling your friends that you've literally got an ocean view from the kitchen sink! Well-stocked and easy to maneuver, it contains all major and minor appliances, cookware, utensils, and dishes you need to prepare and serve a feast. Or, if your taste runs more to restaurants and takeout, you may get more use out of the microwave and refrigerator! Either way, everything is spotless and in perfect working order, so make yourself at home.
The brightness of the first floor of Sea Place 11208 contrasts sharply with the repose of the second. Here it's all about relaxing and enjoying a great night's sleep that won't end with an alarm going off! The master suite is simply a treat with a king bed, with an en suite bathroom, an ultra-comfortable bed, a large TV and DVD player, plenty of closet space, and sliding-glass door access to a private balcony. Work on your tan while lying on the luxurious padded chaise lounge or snuggle up on the glider and listen to the waves crashing on the shore. You can sleep late and undisturbed even on sunny mornings by drawing the blackout curtains over the balcony doors. This is your retreat, where you can watch the sunrise over the beach or stargaze without getting out of bed!
The guest bedroom is great for a second couple or for children, with matching twin beds. The second full bathroom is located just outside this room -- it couldn't be more convenient. And at Sea Place 11208, all linens, blankets, pillows, and bath towels are provided. No need to pack a thing for the house – there are even a washer and dryer you're welcome to use. Fresh clean towels whenever you need them, dry swimsuits in a trice -- what hotel could offer this?
Everything was perfect for our annual sister's weekend. The Condo location was perfect, clean, nicely furnished, wonderful beach front and access to the beach. It was easy to get to the historic district of St. Augustine, and far enough from it to enjoy the beach without the crowds. Great Vacation!St Augustine
Known as a "house dominium," Bluefish 16 is in Surf Crest Village, a small complex right on St. Augustine Beach. As a guest here, you have access to our clubhouse, sparkling swimming pool, and private walkway to the beach. Everything is intimate, uncrowded, and private -- the perfect place for a relaxing vacation!
Our 2-storey house contains 4 bedrooms and 2 baths, plus 2 living rooms -- one upstairs, one downstairs -- so your group has plenty of room to spread out. Best of all, we have a giant deck spanning the entire back of the house, with all the space you need to sunbathe, dine al fresco, and dream in the balmy sea breezes!
The master bedroom is enormous, with a king-size bed, HDTV, comfy couch, and huge windows for admitting sunshine and moonlight. With hardwood floors and walls the color of key lime pie (except the brilliant raspberry panel just behind the bed!), it's as cool and inviting as a morning swim. Once you see this lovely room, you'll plan on retiring early and sleeping late!
The second bedroom is also beautiful, with walls the color of margaritas and cool white fittings. There is a queen-size bed here, and plenty of space. Our third bedroom contains matching twins and citron walls, while the fourth boasts a single and trundle bed and sliding glass doors leading outside. Plenty of space for everyone here at Bluefish 16, all immaculately appointed and tastefully designed!
We have two full bathrooms at Bluefish 16, one with handsome tilework and wood cabinetry to complement its walk-in shower, the other with both a bathtub and shower option. All of your linens, pillows, blankets, and towel sets are provided here at Bluefish 16, so don't worry about packing a thing for the house. We've also got a washer and dryer, so you don't even need to overpack clothing. And it's so handy when all the swimsuits are wet but the kids want to go back to the beach just one more time before bed!
Our house is designed for comfortable privacy when it's time to get a good night's sleep, but it's also conducive to togetherness for entertaining and mealtimes. Both of our two large living rooms contains roomy couches and large LVD TVs with DVD players and VCRs. And because they're on different floors, one part of your group can be upstairs watching the big game while another is downstairs listening to music and reminiscing.
You will probably find yourself taking most of your meals outside on the deck -- it's just too beautiful not to! -- but in case you wind up inside, our dining area is perfect for a family feast. Our long, handsome table sits just beyond a huge, sunny window, and within easy reach of the kitchen counter, which doubles as a breakfast bar for informal dining. After the meal is over, toss everything into the dishwasher and then settle down to a round of Pictionary or Uno. Snacks and drinks are just a few steps away, the music's on in the DVD player, and life is good!
Our fully appointed kitchen is a chef's delight, and is spacious enough for several cooks to get into the action. With all the major and minor appliances, gadgets, utensils, and cookware you need to prepare and serve just about anything, it may tempt you to fry up the catch of the day instead of eating out! Granite countertops, custom wood cabinetry, and all the nice little extras that make cooking more of a pleasure than a chore are waiting for you here.
Come stay at Bluefish 16 for your next vacation. It brings you all the comforts of home in an oceanfront setting. Stroll along the beach at sunrise to witness the spectacular dawn colors, spend an afternoon at the pool, and visit historic St. Augustine or nearby Marineland! There's so much to do and see here, in the perfect year-round weather.
It was a good experience. It is a nice house.St Augustine
This condo is the ultimate family vacation spot! One of only a few units in Windjammer with 2 balconies, every bedroom opens to a balcony, 1 overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and another the Intrarcoastal Waterway, with each balcony having a table and four chairs.
Have breakfast on the Intracoastal Waterway balcony and watch the parade of yachts, sailboats, fishing boats, and jet-skis. Or enjoy the view of the pool from your balcony as you sip cocktails and relish the spectacular sunset. Or stay in your pajamas and relax on your private, ocean-side balcony off the master bedroom. Swaying sea oats with butterflies, sea birds, turtles and rabbits will entertain you as you watch the waves of the ocean and are calmed by the peaceful sounds that only the ocean can provide.
But inside you will find a large kitchen with an island, glass-top stove, all-new stainless steel appliances, granite countertops with sparkling blue flecks, and a stunning glass-tile backsplash.
You will find the kitchen well-stocked with everything to cook for the family, including an Advantium oven for speed-cooking. It is a kitchen for a cook - but watch what you are cooking because your attention will be drawn by the water views on both sides as you stand at the stove! You might decide to cook on the gas grill on the WJ deck for a barbeque treat. (Or you may just decide to treat yourself to one of St. Augustine’s fine restaurants and go out!)
You’ll want to sleep late in the comfortable king-size bed in the Master bedroom or maybe watch a movie on the new wall-mounted 32” Samsung flat-screen HDTV. The kids will have their own flat-screen TV with DVD player in their bedroom - equipped with a Pottery Barn bunk bed with single on top, double on bottom, and roll-out trundle underneath - all with new, top quality mattresses. The third bedroom, with a queen bed, is beautifully furnished with all-new furniture and with an elegant beach theme and art work. The unit sleeps eight in real beds - no sleep couches or blow-up beds!
Beautiful condo and great view! Hope to return soon.St Augustine
Gorgeous views of the ocean and Intracoastal Waterway are yours from every room in Atlantic Angel, our beachfront Mediterranean-style house in St. Augustine. If you love architectural detail, luxurious furnishings, and brand new pool.
Atlantic Angel is a beautifully designed, custom built, lavishly decorated house in which each room is spectacular from floor to ceiling. Among the features here are an imported tile mural in the entryway; Saltillo, Spanish, and Mexican tile accents; skylights; stained glass; quarried coral floors; a dry aquarium; and coffered ceilings. You'll want to spend a whole day just going through Atlantic Angel inch by inch to discover its architectural treasures!
Best of all is the location of Atlantic Palace, right on the shores of St. Augustine Beach with a private walkway leading you down to the crystalline sands. The sun rises majestically over the horizon here, pelicans float by, and the sea is ever-changing. And as if all that weren't enough, the Intracoastal Waterway is in the opposite direction, with beautiful sunsets and great wildlife opportunities too!
The main living and dining area is upstairs, where you enter an enormous great room overlooking the ocean. Two walls are almost entirely windows, punctuated by a big adobe gas fireplace with a hearth seat. A comfortable sectional sofa faces the ocean & fireplace, while an LCD TV and DVD player stand ready to keep the group entertained.
On two sides of the great room are sunrooms, perfect for reading, talking, or dreaming a few hours away! The furnishings in here are wonderfully cushioned and comfy, inviting you to linger, gazing out at the beach.
The open plan of this area connects the living room with the dining area and the kitchen, both of which are perfect for your large group. The dining table overlooks the ocean, while the kitchen is a gourmand's dream, with professional-quality stainless-steel appliances including 2 refrigerators, a Thermidor commercial gas cooktop, convection oven, and warming oven. Indian granite countertops, a walk-in pantry, and a sunny breakfast nook complete the amazing features of the kitchen, tempting even the most reluctant cook to "play house"!
In addition to the grand room, Atlantic Angel also sports a rec room with pool. Of course, most of the time you will find yourselves gathering on the breezy oceanfront patio or the long, covered balcony with Intracoastal Waterway views. Bougainvillea blooms in our garden, a Spanish fountain merrily trickles, and all is lush, peaceful, and bright with tropical beauty!
The master suite is one of the crown jewels of Atlantic Angel. Featuring a king-sized bed, the master bedroom includes an LCD TV and DVD player, beamed ceiling, and access to the oceanfront deck. The master bath is stunning, with marblework, a garden Jacuzzi tub, dual vanities, dry aquarium, and stained-glass transom. You'll feel as though you're at an exclusive spa every time you set foot in this room!
Two roomy guest bedrooms sleep an additional 8 people. One contains 2 queen-sized beds and a small TV, while the other offers a twin with a trundle, plus a double Murphy bed. Both lead out to the 30-foot-long balcony overlooking the Intracoastal Waterway, and each has its own designer bathroom. No matter where you sleep at Atlantic Angel, your surroundings will wow you!
The ground floor features a brand new 4th bedroom that can sleep 4. This newly furnished room features 2 queen beds. There is also a brand new full bathroom on the ground floor. This room is perfect for 2 families traveling together or for a group of kids.
Best of all, a brand new pool has been added as of January, 2013. A truly exceptional vacation venue with unforgettable vistas and uniquely beautiful décor, reserve Atlantic Angel today.
We chose this house since it was directly on the beach and had a pool for the kids to take a break from the beach if needed. The house was amazing, clean and neat and all the amenities of home and then some! The pool was smaller than expected but worked out awesome. The sunrises, unimaginable! And you could even see the sunsets on the inter-coastal side too. There were a few things that needed attending too, but maintenance was very responsive and handled things accordingly. The beach was so close, at high tide the beach was literally 30 feet from the end of the walkway, which really wasn't that long. Turtles along the walkway to the beach was something to look forward to each trip to and from the beach. This rental property and the rental company are highly recommended. There were beach chairs there and beach toys left behind from other renters as well as household items so it is recommended that you check out the house before buying or renting items. Cannot say enough about the house, so I'll leave you with this, Astonishing!St Augustine
Sweeping oceanfront views and utter privacy are yours in our Crescent Cottage, nestled high on the dunes at the tip of the 35 foot dune. Enjoy unspoiled beaches and fabulous sunrises from our outdoor patio deck and huge screened porch! Despite the 4 small bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms (with showers only), Crescent Cottage has a cozy bungalow feel, no doubt because of the painted wood frames outlining our floor-to-ceiling windows, the abundance of quilts and other handcrafted art, and the warm décor. Or perhaps it's the fun-and-funky mix of Vermont cabin furnishings with nautical yard art!
(Be sure to pose the whole family in front of the cannon, rescued from nearby Matanzas River!) The living room is the heart of our house, with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Stretch out the couch or grab a rocking chair--this inviting area is ideal for family game night, long chats with old friends, and serene ocean-gazing. (Watch for the occasional school of dolphins just beyond the surf!) And if you want to get a little closer to the natural paradise that is Crescent Beach, our big screened-in porch provides protection from the elements while letting in the sunshine and fresh sea breezes. With plenty of seating and enviable views, it's certain to be your go-to refuge whenever you can't be at the beach.
The 4 bedrooms are ideal either for a family with children or for a large group. Comfortably sleeping 8, each is distinctively decorated, and all are snug and restful. One room offers a queen bed, while the other 3 contain doubles. With plenty of windows and extra quilts piled high, you will be pampered whether you want to close the blinds and slumber or gaze out at the starry night sky! The cottage also has 2 full bathrooms with showers. Flooded with sunlight, the kitchen is convenient and fully equipped with all the dishes, cookware, and gadgets you could ask for. A cheerful dining area is just a few steps away, simplifying mealtimes. Our fridge and cupboards have all the space you'll need to keep the gang stocked in refreshments, and our spacious countertops make preparing a seafood feast or other gourmet treat so easy! But the best part of our oceanfront cottage is its surroundings.
Conveniently located just ¼ mile south of the 206 Bridge, it is surrounded by vegetation that provides a natural privacy barrier, creating the illusion that you are alone on your private beach! A winding path leads over the dunes and down to the sugary sands. Along the way you just may glimpse a rabbit or gopher turtle! And if there is a birdwatcher in your group, polish the binoculars, grab the camera, and get ready -- you will see countless beautiful seabirds during your stay at Crescent Cottage!
Your time on this beach will be unforgettable. Stroll along the soft sands, collecting shells or simply letting the waves tickle your toes. Ride a bike along the water's edge, swim, surf, or fish without fighting the crowds -- this is your stretch of ocean, unrolling for you all day long! And when you return to Crescent Cottage, wash the sand away in our outdoor shower. Should you care to venture beyond your private paradise, a wealth of attractions wait nearby. You can rent kayaks, fishing gear, and even boats to explore the inlets of Crescent Beach, or hike through state parks. Historic St. Augustine lies at your feet, and Disney World is just 90 minutes away! Yet when you come home to Crescent Cottage, you feel miles from the hustle and bustle of civilization.
If the idea of being on the beach in an authentic beach cottage is your wish then Crescent Cottage is for you. What Crescent Cottage is, is a compact single story delightful experience with sand in your toes. There are no elevators and multi-story buildings here, you are one with the beach. Unpretentious and comfortable, it is barefooting at its best. The entire oceanfront face is a screened porch and outside of that is an equally large wooden deck - what an ocean view you have! Then take a few steps down to the second deck snuggled in the swale between the dunes. A few steps more and you have the sandy path over the fore dune where the ocean awaits. It is so rare to have the opportunity to walk the natural sand path and Crescent Cottage is one of the few places where you can! I cannot imagine a better place to spend some time, relax and enjoy.St Augustine
Our living room and all 4 bedrooms of our Bella Mar condo open onto a balcony overlooking either the sunrise on Crescent Beach or the sunset on the Intracoastal! Beautifully furnished and perfectly located, this is your St. Augustine home-away-from-home! Maximum 8 people, 2 parking spaces.
Bella Mar 202 is one of just 8 condos in the beautiful and serene family enclave of Bella Mar. Here you're always just steps away from the outdoors, with that refreshing ocean breeze and the murmur of the surf. Birds wheel past, marine life has been known to raise a fin above the waves, and the blue Florida sky makes a beautiful backdrop.
Featuring an addictive hammock and a casual table and chairs, our balconies are a delight. This is the place to savor that first cup of coffee in the morning, or linger over a glass of wine before bed. It's a great place to open the laptop and send a few emails or update your Facebook status ("Fallen in love with Crescent Beach!"). You have free high-speed, dual-band wireless Internet here, so you can stay connected with one or many wireless devices even when viewing nature at its most unspoiled . . . or you can put all the electronics away, pull out the journal and binoculars, and have an old-fashioned vacation!
The best part about the balconies is that one is accessible from every bedroom, plus the living room. Your group can gather on the Intracoastal side to enjoy the sunset, and the next morning a few hearty souls may even greet the sunrise on the beach. (Don’t be surprised to see rabbits, turtles, and other wildlife scurrying about as you stroll over the dunes on our boardwalk!) You don't even have to brave the stairs -- ours is an elevator building, with ground level garage parking so nothing mars the view! There is even a dock across the street on the Intracoastal where you can enjoy the sunset or go fishing.
With the exterior so lovely, you might expect the inside of the condo to be a letdown, but you're in for a surprise. We've recently updated everything, from the travertine floors in the living, dining, kitchen, and bathrooms to the soft bamboo floors in the bedrooms. You’ll find stainless-steel kitchen appliances, HDTVs, dual-band wireless and high-speed Internet throughout. We’ve also added Blu-ray streaming devices in the main room and master bedroom. Just because you're at the beach doesn't mean you have to rough it!
Our living area is stylish and spacious, with sink-right-in couches, a 50" HDTV, year-round electric fireplace, and great views. The dining area is in one corner, beneath soft Murano glass spotlighting. Here a table for 6 awaits, with extra seating at the breakfast bar.
The kitchen is a delight, with new appliances, granite countertops, and wood cabinets filled with cookware, dishes, and utensils. There’s even a reverse osmosis water filtration system to bring you clean, tasty drinking water and ice.
The master suite is luxurious, from the king-sized bed to the bamboo wood floors, HDTV with Blu-ray player, and en suite bath with Jacuzzi. The other 3 bedrooms are similarly appointed: the second has a queen bed, HDTV, and bath with a walk-in shower. The third and fourth also have HDTVs: one with a queen bed, the other with 2 doubles. And all 4 bedrooms have balcony access and lovely views.
A third full bathroom is convenient to the living area. All of the linens you need for Bella Mar 202 are waiting for you here, along with our washer and dryer to keep them fresh. Downstairs in the garage is a convenient storage room for your beach, fishing equipment and outdoor gear.
Had a great stay. Enjoyed the condo. Our only complaint was in regards to parking. We had three cars and it was a huge inconvenience to shuttle back and forth to leave a car in the property management parking lot. We called in advance to request guidance on parking the third car per the contract, and no alternatives were provided. We were told we could not obtain a third parking pass. What made it even more frustrating was that the parking garage was at least 75% empty for the entire duration of our stay.St Augustine
It’s an easy decision to book the rental that’s totally renovated and outfitted, top to bottom, with the makings of your perfect family vacation. Chiquita’s Sun House is a 4-bedroom house with a gold-medal rating, so invite your best group of up to 14 people and dive into your private pool! (note: pool will be heated beginning October 1, 2014).
Outdoors you get twice the chance to enjoy Florida’s beautiful sunshine. Not only in and around the large (13‘X26’) private pool, but also upstairs, on a veranda furnished as a comfortable outdoor living space. With ceiling fans, a huge L-shaped couch and view to the pool below, it’s the perfect place for the lazy mornings you’re dreaming of. In the afternoon after you’ve had enough sun, pile on to the outdoor couch or armchair, as your appointed bar-tender mixes up some easy refreshments.
Indoors, the heart of the house is the newly redecorated living room. Rarely can such a tailored space simultaneously be so cheerful. Mirrors, tasteful lighting fixtures and lovely accents in pops of ocean colors set a stunning scene against gleaming hardwood floors. Indeed, Chiquita’s Sun House is a magazine-pretty space that’s ready to bring you and your family together. Two large white couches face each other across a coffee table perfect for board games and sharing snacks.
Against the wall, facing the fireplace and TV, is a third couch. Floor cushions are scattered on a beautiful blue and white rug so there’s always room for more. The room is lit with fantastic natural light all year but, once the sun goes down, you’ll really love the fireplace (especially in the winter or over the holidays). Need more? There’s a flatscreen TV hanging just above.
The kitchen is fully updated – a gorgeous example of the perfect white kitchen you’ve probably pinned on Pinterest. An L-shaped counter ends in a versatile breakfast bar. Between this and the open-plan living area, a large dining table seats eight (so who’s cooking?).
Key to any great vacation home: tons of sunshine and even more flexibility. As such, the four bedrooms at Chiquita’s Sun House will suit both a small family or a large group of up to 14 guests. A master bedroom rewards your matriarch/patriarch, while bedrooms 2, 3 and 4 offer a choice of queen bed, four bunk beds and a sleeper sofa/day bed combo.
This gold-rated property is ready to spoil you with extras, and free Wi-Fi is just the start! Ample parking, a washer/dryer, HDTV and air-conditioning ensure you’re always as comfortable as you are entertained.
With fantastic proximity to miles of white beach, historic downtown St. Augustine and dozens of day trip ideas (we can’t recommend Kennedy Space Center highly enough), Chiquita’s Sun House scores A+ for location. Yet, once you have a drink in hand in your backyard private pool, or pile all together on the living room’s three couches.
The home is gorgeous!! All of our family enjoyed the layout, the pool, and amenities.
We were expecting a little bit more than 4 beach chairs when the home sleeps 14, no beach umbrella or boogie boards, etc. but we were really happy to have the little beach wagon.
I think the owners should have a 2nd trash pickup - there was only one pickup - the day after we arrived and the trash co. didn't even empty the can. We had to call Maintenance to come pick up trash left behind. Pool was cleaned toward the end of our stay (I think it was Thursday). The pool was not clean when we arrived - perhaps pool guy should be scheduled for Saturday/sunday?
All in all a good time was had by everyone. Minor issues. Nice house.St Augustine
Enjoy a tropical oasis at Summer Wind, our 2-storey house just yards from Crescent Beach. Beautifully landscaped with a heated pool and boasting a wraparound balcony, this is the perfect indoor/outdoor Florida living space for your next vacation! Stand out on the long, wide wooden balcony and savor the panoramic views of ocean, sky, and green St. Augustine beauty! Though you're just 2 houses from the beach at Summer Wind, on a quiet cul-de-sac with a dune walkover just steps from the front door, you also are part of a neighborhood, and the landscaping is beautiful year-round. Step indoors from the second-floor balcony and you enter the main living and dining area at Summer Wind.
(There's also a family room downstairs -- great when the group has competing TV programs or activities in mind!) One entire wall is taken up by glass doors to the balcony, while comfy couches and chairs face a big flat-screen Dish TV (included all premium channels) with DVD player and satellite selection of premium channels. The kids will feel at home in here at once, sprawling out with Legos and Bionicles on the floor, while their parents admire the view, try not to nap, and perhaps enjoy frosty cocktails from the kitchen. Speaking of the kitchen, you will love working in this remodeled room, with open cabinets, a big window over the sink, stainless-steel appliances, and dropped lighting. The cupboards are stocked with dishes, cookware, utensils, and everything you could ask for -- no running to the store for a colander or a can-opener at Summer Wind!
This is a family house, with all the cookie sheets, corkscrews, and whisks that come with the territory. In one corner of the room is a cheery breakfast table, just the right size for two or three to enjoy mid-afternoon coffee and pastries, play a quick round of gin rummy, or do a little social media updating on the laptop (you have free WiFi at Summer Wind). It's also a nice place to station a chopping board for your sous-chefs to help with dinner! There are also 3 bedrooms upstairs: the master suite with HDTV, another great room for a couple, and the perfect space for the kids. The master suite is the jewel in Summer Wind's crown, sporting a king-sized bed, hardwood floors, glass doors leading out to the balcony, and splendid views. The en-suite bath has a walk-in shower, and houses the full-sized washer and dryer that are yours to enjoy during your stay.
The second bedroom upstairs is beautiful as well, with a queen bed and balcony access. It shares a bathroom with the third bedroom, containing one queen and one twin-sized bed. A big window overlooks beautiful scenery in this cheerful room, which is just right for children. The fourth bedroom is downstairs, convenient for grandparents, early risers, or teenagers who want some "space." This spacious room offers a queen-sized bed and direct access to the patio. It adjoins the family room, which has plush furnishings and a big flat-screen. Summer Wind is ideal for two families traveling together, or for multi generations! But the best part of the house isn't the house itself: it's all the outdoor spaces that make Summer Wind such a pleasure to explore. In addition to the new wraparound wooden deck on the second floor, there is a big covered patio on the first set with comfy rocking chairs and outdoor table for 8 people.
There is also seating around the heated swimming pool, on ledges composed of smooth rocks that blend perfectly with the tropical landscaping. The pool itself is dazzling blue and so enticing on a warm summer day . . . or a hot summer night, for that matter! It's just part of the huge garden here, a great place for lounging, sunbathing, and contemplation. Best of all, Crescent Beach is just a minute's walk away, with no streets to cross or traffic to contend with. Bring the whole gang to the beach and comb the shore at low tide for shells and shark's teeth; splash in the surf; count the pelicans dive-bombing in the waves; and build the sandcastle of your dreams.
The best thing about Summer Wind is the location, one house from the beach with private walkway and no street to cross. Cresent beach is beautiful. It was a family trip for us meeting out daughters and families. We were 8 total, my husband and myself, daughter, husband and 11 year old twins, other daughter, significant other and one small dog. We were all very comfortable at the house. Great porches for coffee in the a.m., everyone enjoyed the pool and the beach. Very nice appliances and grill. In quiet residential area, with 2 very nice nature parks close by. Owner called personally since another guest had complained about pool lights not working, he sent handy man over to check things out and seemed very concerned we had everything we needed.St Augustine
Balconies, patios, and decks bring the beautiful outdoors to Four Seasons, our beach front house in St. Augustine. Spectacular ocean views from most rooms and all decks on this 4 bedroom - 3.5 bath - oceanfront home that sleeps 14. Four Seasons was recently renovated from top to bottom to include oak wood floors, custom kitchen cabinets, new tile, stainless steel appliances and all new furniture. Located on a high dune with walkway to the beach.
The second floor of Four Seasons is the main living and dining area of the house. In the great room, a large HDTV occupies one corner, surrounded by overstuffed couches and chairs. Windows and sliding glass doors are everywhere , creating a nice indoor/outdoor vibe. Coffered ceilings add a nice touch as well, lightening this airy space still further.
The dining room table is just adjacent to the great room, in a corner banked by windows. You may wind up taking many of your meals outdoors, but should you wish to assemble the group for a big dinner or other occasion, this is the place! The kitchen is alongside, spotlessly gleaming with full-sized appliances, well-stocked cabinets, and sliding glass doors out to the balcony that leads to the beach.
A huge bedroom with a sitting area on the first floor comfortably sleeps with a king bed and a pull out sofa. This bedroom has views of the ocean and direct access to the beach. But this is only one of four bedrooms – you have your choice of locations at Four Seasons!
The third floor is the showpiece of the house, the master suite occupying an entire side of the house has views of the ocean from the bedroom and the inter-coastal from the bathroom. Here you will find the best balcony views (as you might expect!), not to mention an ultra-comfortable Westin Heavenly king-sized bed, big overstuffed easy chair with matching ottoman (heaven for those marathon reading sessions late at night!), and a large master bathroom with separate shower and oversized soaking tub. Now, this is vacation living at its finest! There are 2 more bedrooms on the 3rd floor. 1 with two (2) full beds and direct ocean views and a Kids room with a double bed and 2 single beds that sleeps 4 - just crying out to become the kids’ clubhouse and inner sanctum! The third floor also has it’s own sitting area with a 42” tv. There’s even 2 sofa beds in case you need to sleep overnight guests or stage a “sleepover” for the kids in front of the big TV.
Another bathroom and a half-bath complete the accommodations, with towels and linens for every bath and bed in the house, of course.
The best thing about Four Seasons – other than its unbelievable location, of course – is that it’s truly a family house. We have a laundry room with washer and dryer at your disposal, and a Pack ‘n Play is kept here just in case. WiFi works throughout the house and in the outdoor spaces as well. A grill awaits your fresh-caught fish or hot dogs for the kids. You’ll find beach toys and equipment aplenty for your use. Everywhere you turn is another nice patio space or little balcony from which to enjoy the sunrise, sunset, or simply the balmy Florida air.
Four Seasons is big enough for several families traveling together, a huge group of friends, grandparents and other relatives, or one big family. It can be used as a single 3-story space, or the first floor can serve as a separate space to give members of your group some privacy. Versatile and beautifully furnished, immaculately maintained and perfectly located, Four Seasons is the ideal place for you to stay in St. Augustine Beach!
We all had a great time! Great location and suited our extended family quite well! Convenient to the beach and Publix. It was clean and comfortable. Even the top floor was sufficiently cool:)St Augustine
Three certainly isn’t a crowd at Ocean Pearl in St. Augustine Beach. With three floors, four bedrooms, and two additional sleeper sofas, this beachfront house can sleep up to 13 people with ease, making it ideal for a multi-family vacation, a wedding party, or a school reunion.
Although the house was recently updated and professionally decorated by the owner, who has an interior-design background, sandy feet and wet swimsuits are definitely allowed. That’s a good thing, given that in addition to overlooking Crescent Beach—there’s even a private walkway to its white sands—Ocean Pearl has its own in-ground pool. You can catch some ocean waves in the morning, then enjoy a luxurious swim in privacy at night. Perfection!
In addition to the roomy patio surrounding the pool, Ocean Pearl has decks spanning the front of the house on both the second and third floors. There you can relish the fresh ocean breeze while enjoying a drink and watch seabirds and surfers alike on the beach; the house is in fact located just off a popular surfing spot, so don’t forget your board.
Of course, you can savor the ocean views from inside as well. The open-plan third floor has a wealth of windows as well as a spacious living room with roomy couches (one of which converts to a bed for one), a 50” HDTV, and even an Xbox. Adjacent is a dining area and an open kitchen with a breakfast bar. You can serve the kids at the breakfast bar before joining the adults at the dining table—a setup certain to make everyone happy. With its sparkling appliances and gleaming counters, the fully equipped kitchen will make anyone who enjoys cooking happy as well. There’s grocery shopping nearby, so feel free to stock up on all the food you’ll need for your stay; there’s plenty of room in the fridge, the freezer, and the cabinets to store it all.
Also on the third floor is the master suite, complete with a king-size bed, a TV, and patio doors that open onto the deck—because nothing’s more romantic than enjoying the moonlight sparkling on the ocean in the arms of that special someone. The en-suite bathroom has both a slipper tub for long, relaxing soaks and a shower for when you want to quickly kick-start the day.
Three additional bedrooms are on the second floor, one with a king-size bed, one with a queen bed, and the third with a double bed and a single. All three rooms have their own HDTVs—no squabbling over what to watch. Two full bathrooms are on this floor as well. There’s even a second sitting room with its own 50” HDTV, perfect for the kids to hang out. A sofa in this room converts into a bed as well.
The ground floor has a spacious entryway—talk about making a fabulous first impression!—as well as the garage.
Ocean Pearl is so luxurious, you may be tempted to spend hours, if not days, lazing and lounging inside, on its decks, or in its pool. But because of its prime location—we did mention the private walkway to the beach, right?—there’s plenty to do nearby. The house is just off the stunning A1A Scenic Highway. Nearby you’ll find Marineland, St. Augustine Lighthouse, and a wealth of parks for biking, hiking, and bird-watching, as well as historic St. Augustine, the nation’s oldest city. Even the Orlando theme parks are just a day trip away.
Whether you’re planning a relaxing getaway, a family fun fest, or a chance to spend quality time with the gang, Ocean Pearl is a perfect place for it, combining easy living with extraordinary luxury. So what are you waiting for? Make your reservation today.
Very satisfied with the property. We had an issue and the property manager took care of it immediatly. Suggestion - add an additional outside trash can.St Augustine
Newly updated as of December 2012. It’s the perfect combination of traditional beach house charm and contemporary convenience. Newly renovated, White Sand sits oceanfront in Summer Haven, its wraparound decks and huge windows bringing you sweeping views of sand, sea, and sky! White Sand Beach House looks directly onto the beach in front and the Matanzas River in back. Watch the sun rise (and dolphins cavort) at dawn over the ocean, and the sun set (and birds wheel by) at evening. The views are absolutely unbelievable! And you can enjoy them from wraparound decks, sundecks, the lanai – there are outdoor spaces everywhere at White Sands, and you’ll love exploring them all. This house may look traditional from the outside, but inside it is completely renovated and thoroughly modern, with all the conveniences and little luxe touches that make a vacation rental even more special.
Sloping ceilings with high windows, outdoor access from many rooms, and decks and balconies galore create an indoor/outdoor feeling you’ll love, enhanced by sea foam colored walls, polished hardwood floors, and plenty of sunshine. Step into the living room and sink into one of the ultra-comfortable beige leather sofas. One faces the big flat-screen TV, while the other looks onto the fireplace and double sliding glass doors leading to a balcony. This is a room to snuggle into for an evening of entertainment and fun. Between the living room and the kitchen is a sun-filled dining area with a big table and great ocean views. This is clearly Family Central, the nerve center for everything from the laptop (you have free wireless Internet at White Sand) to heated games of Go Fish. Station the camera and binoculars here; there will always be someone around to grab them when exciting things occur!
The kitchen at White Sand is thoroughly modern, with big windows over the sink and all the space you need for food and drink. You'll find everything here to prepare and serve meals, plus time-savers such as a microwave, coffeemaker, toaster, and blender. You may mostly be packing picnics for the beach or carrying snacks out to the decks, but everything you need is here -- just add the groceries! When it's time to retire for the night, rest easy in the spacious, beautiful bedrooms at White Sand. The master suite is airy and bright, with an ultra-comfortable queen-sized bed, flat-screen TV, comfy reading chair and wicker loveseat, and access to an oceanfront balcony. Count the stars from your pillows in the master bedroom!
The master bath is simply luxurious, boasting a Jacuzzi tub, separate shower, and his-and-her vanities. You'll never want to leave! The second bedroom is spacious and restful as well. Leading directly to the lanai via sliding glass doors, it also has a huge window with lovely ocean views and a flat-screen TV. The third bedroom is a children’s paradise, destined to become a clubhouse for the youngest members of your gang. Against one wall is a twin-sized daybed; against another is a set of bunks with a double on the bottom and a twin on top. A flat-screen TV and DVD player stand ready for entertainment, while entire walls of windows let sunshine pour into the room. There’s plenty of space here for play and sleep.
The second bathroom at White Sand is sparkling new and luxe, with a separate powder room as well as a shower/tub combination. And all of the linens you need are provided here, as well as the towels, blankets, and pillows, not to mention a washer and dryer to keep everything fresh. Pack light and come as you are; we've got you covered! White Sand is in Summer Haven, an historical area that is slowly vanishing due to coastal erosion. It's very close to Fort Matanzas, and is just 15 minutes from St. Augustine, the oldest city in the nation. The beach is quiet here, with plenty of wildlife and no traffic or crowds. Come stay in this beautiful spot before it is changed forever!
Overall, our vacation was wonderful. We love the location, but the house had numerous problems: smelly water, AC did not cool like it has in the past, DVD not connected.St Augustine
