From the moment I walked into this home, I knew I had found the home I have been looking for! No need to look any further in your search for the perfect home because this is it! From space, to views, to cleanliness, to attentive property managers this home has it all. As I was the first to check in, I had the pleasure of unpacking and setting this spacious home up as “our home” for the next 6 days. When I vacation, I don’t want the place I stay took look like it is temporary…but rather a “retreat.” There was so much space on the full three levels that nothing looked crowded or cluttered as I unpacked a full SUV. Two large pantries (I only used one) and walk- in closets for every bedroom easily tucked the suitcases and supplies out of site. This home was designed right with all the bedrooms facing the ocean and the bathrooms and kitchen facing the street side. Trust me…this is a huge gift for all your guests as the street side can get quite noisy at times.
The views from the second and third levels are as good as it gets because the full size windows wrap around the corners so you get to see the ocean from two different angles. It is as if you never need to leave these rooms to feel you are outside enjoying the beach! But if this is not good enough, go topside to the crow’s nest and see for miles around you!
The second deck with comfortable Adirondack chairs was the favorite spot for all guests to enjoy the ocean breeze and a favorite beverage, a book or a good conversation! The kitchen was fully stocked (plan to get/bring some plastic containers) with ample place settings. 5 full bathrooms were also a real plus! The driveway was a bit challenging if you have a lot of vehicles. Were able to manage 4 cars in the drive and two across the street so plan accordingly if everyone wants to bring their own car like my family did.
Jenny and Rick were awesome to work with. This is the second time I have rented from them and they are top notch, attentive to every detail and quick to remedy anything that is broken. If this home does not have what you want, ask about their others. Having attentive and professional property managers is as important as having the perfect home. In fact the “perfect home” that is poorly managed and attended will only lead to frustration at a time you should be relaxing.
Since I only live 30 miles away, I know the area very well. You will need a car but there is so much to see and do in St. Augustine, you
