Guestbook Comment

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this beach before and we really liked it. We always have to take a granddog or two with us and this house allows that. Other "dog houses" we have stayed at sometimes would look and smell like dog houses, but this house definitely does not. It is very clean and pleasant. We really like the fenced in yard and parking area so that when you let your dog out, he cannot run out into the very busy highway in the front of the house. We also like that everything is there waiting for us like linens, etc. We have another trip planned for this winter. We love the area, we love the house, and Russell and Tina are very pleasant people to deal with.

A true gem

  • 5 of 5

It truly says it all that when driving over the Vilano bridge to get back to the Treasure Chest after an outing, all my stresses would melt away. I enjoyed the simplicity and coziness of the house and, most of all, the location on the beach. The beach was truly amazing with an abundance of shells, birds and winter beach activities. The few things that needed to be attended to in the house were done so promptly. Thank you Steve! The furnace noise does take some getting used to, however! Plus, the kitchen needs a casserole dish. Otherwise, bravo!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments. We are very glad that you enjoyed your stay. Treasure Chest truly is a little gem on the beach. The remodeled kitchen and new living room furniture have been a big hit. Steve is our property supervisor. He responds quickly to calls for any issues that my pop up from time to tom. And yes, we will get that casserole dish immediately! We look forward to your return.

Perfect vacation !

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for our vacation

Vacationing with our dogs can be difficult but with the fenced in yard we we felt like we were right at home. It was hard to leave. We even saw a couple of Dolphins from the deck one morning.

The house was very clean updated. Hope we can go back again!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments. The owners wisely fenced the perimeter of the property so your pooches can roam in the sun, or shade under the house, without getting out to the beach or the street. We are very glad you enjoyed your stay and we'll be here when you are ready to return!

Amazing little beach cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the cottage! Brought our two dogs, and loved the fenced in area. (there's no grass but lots of mulch) The beach is very dog friendly, and everything is so close! If you stay, you have to check out Caps on the water, it's an amazing pace to eat. Make sure you sit outside!

The sunrises and sunsets on the deck were breathtaking! And the private path to the beach was perfect. We loved every day, and said a sad goodbye when we had to leave..

Make sure you bring enough clothes because there is not a washer and dryer. This was the only thing we would have changed.

If you decide to rent this, you will love it!

wonderful beach cottage

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this beach cottage with my parents over the Easter break. The cottage is perfect for two couples and "pet friendly" is so nice as we each brought our dogs. The location/views are wonderful! It is about 1 mile up A1A from the causeway bridge and the Publix grocery store! The kitchen is well equipped and the bathrooms appear to have been updated. The layout is perfect with the kitchen/family room on the ocean side of the cottage and the bedrooms in the back. The wi-fi was great and cable TV/DVD player were nice too! We loved the fenced in yard for the dogs and covered parking under the cottage was great. It would have been nice to have a washer/dryer rather that cart laundry over to the mainland. Recommend Kate's up A1A for lunch/dinner and the Kingfish Grill on the mainland side of the causeway bridge for lunch (10% off coupons in local tourist brochures). Wonderful location when visiting St. Augustine as you get the best of both worlds- the beach and 10 minutes from historic downtown!

We have several public golf courses within a 20 minute drive, and St, Augustine offers many different activities. Stroll the quaint shops on St. George Street or explore the antique shops and art galleries scattered throughout town. Tour the town by trolley or horse and buggy; don't miss the Alligator Farm, Ghost Tours, Lightner Museum, Fort Matanzas, and the many historical attractions!

If you love water sports, you have come to the right place! You can rent surf boards, jet skis, canoes, and other boats; you can go para sailing, hot air ballooning or fishing in the ocean or the Intracoastal Waterway! All of our guests get discounts to several local businesses!

In Ponte Vedra and Jacksonville, you can go horse back riding on the beach, take surfing lessons, visit the great Jacksonville Zoo, or take in a Jaguars game!

We have something for everyone--but most guests love our beach house the most! You may never want to leave!
