OCEANFRONT HOME - DIRECT ON THE SAND - ALL NEW 2006

St. Augustine Beach House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 7

We have spent over a year rebuilding this 1926 Craftsman Bungalow trying to maintain the integrity of the original structure but adding all the newest conveniences. Everything is NEW -: Elec/Plumb/Drywall/Windows/Doors/Kitchen/Bath. There is a large kitchen with everything you will need to cook a gourmet meal - Stainless Smoothtop Stove, Stainless Side by Side Frig with the Freezer down - great design - no more bending down all the food is at eye level - Dishwasher & Microwave of course. Full ENTERTAINMENT CENTER w/TV,DVD, VCR,Cable,Stereo. Free local & Long distance Phone Service. The entire place is done with STONE FLOORS even the OUTSIDE PORCHES which actually become an extension of the interior space since there is always a breeze - though we installed multiple CEILING FANS if it ever goes away. There are plenty of places to relax and enjoy. Games- Beach toys-Top Quality Linens-Outside SHOWER too. Walking distance to some fantastic Restaurants w/ LIVE MUSIC even a SWIMMING POOL!

How is the Beach? BEST in TOWN: Since Beaches vary so widely, I will try to point out the main differences you should ask about. First is the SAND. The Chautauqua’s sand is like powder-not coarse ground up shells like some. Great for drip castles! Second, at The Chautauqua the ocean is right AT YOUR DOOR STEP. There is no long raised boardwalk with a 5-minute walk across the dunes to navigate with the cooler & chairs before you ever get to the water. The ocean is right there. Third, there are NO CARS. This is a major distinction. Imagine trying to play paddleball or Batmitten with cars continually passing by & having to be on constant baby alert. Not while you are on vacation! Next, the beach is WIDE, level & private - no high rise condos. Some beaches are very narrow & steep. It affects the waves too. The locals consider The Chautauqua the BEST SURFING around. There 's a Surf shop with lessons & rentals at the end of our block but you can have loads of fun with the toys provide fee. No Need to worry!

How is the House? : A Classic. I fell in love the minute I saw it & have spent over a year restoring it to its former glory. Everything was replaced in 2005 w/Top of the line materials. Everything is new from the studs up. Downstairs is the CHAUTAUQUA II. Great for groups up to 7. It has its own Greatroom, Kitchen, Garage, Laundry, Oceanside Decks & Outdoor Shower .The look is different from upstairs but charming in its own way. All Stone Floor, even the walls on the Porch. The Kitchen is actually larger than the main house. All Stainless with long Glass Block under cabinet window. Great light! The Ocean side porch is great too. Really an extension of the Greatroom - Same STONE - and a wonderful place to relax. The bath is white subway tile with Pedestal sink and blue glass accents. Jetted Soaking Tub. Full Entertainment Center. The Master is Ocean side w/ Queen bed & Anderson sliders out to a Covered Porch. The other bedroom has a double bed.

My name is Linda Bayles. I have been a Reator with Remax in the Jacksonville/St Augustine area ranking in the Top 1% of Agents since 1998.

I work primarily as a Single Agent. There are not many of us out there. Most Realtors work as neutral Transaction Agents. You can googe 'Buyers Agent' to get an overview of the difference. I think it is big. Just ask yourself the question, Would I want the other sides Attorney to represent me too? That's it in a nut shell but the amazing thing is, unlike Attorneys, it does not cost you anything to have your OWN Realtor representing just YOUR interest. We are all paid by the Seller. So .... I would love to help if you are thinking about buying or selling in the area. Just call and I will start sending photos of homes so you can get familiar with the options before you come. Once here just let me know when you are available. We can see about 4 per hour.

Then in 2004, I fell in love with St Augustine Beach.

Linda Bayles purchased this house in 2005

In 2005 I walked into a 1926 beach cottage direct oceanfron on St Augustine Beach and knew I had found my calling. I wanted to 'Create' a vacation space for Families. Large extended families. A place were Cousins, Grandmothers, Uncles and Aunts can comfortably come together to reconnect and enjoy each other away from the demands of the outside world.

I come from a large family of 5 children as does my husband, Brad. Some of my fondest memories are when we all got together to just 'hang out' for 3 or 4 days. The little ones always come up with a 'play'. The adults always congregate in the Kitchen passing down the 'Family Recipes' to the next generation and playing Games. We are a big Game playing family. Specifically Rummikub . If you have never played, you should. I make sure there is one in each house and once you are hooked and have one of your own, hope you will think of your St Augustine stay every time you play. (Call and I will give you the rules)

So I bought that 1926 Craftsman, gutted it and turned it into The Chautauqua which sleeps 22. It has been a rewarding success.

In 2011, my Father expanded the tradition and bought 4 homes on 3 Oceanfront lots. We could not believe our luck and spent the next year remodeling them into The Seaside Cottages. We just put them on the market in June 2012.

Now I manage all 5.

The Best part is not only the houses but the BEACH. There are only 18 streets on the “Best Beach” - No cars. No Catwalk. The ocean right at your door. Everything within walking distance…. And we now have homes on 2 of the them!

I hope you will come stay with us and create memories you will cherish for a lifetime. Then I will consider it a success.

The Ad doesn't do it justice!!

The Ad doesn't do it justice!!

We stayed here right after the renovations last year and I can tell you that Linda's descriptions don't do the place justice. We were so pleased with the quality of details in the renovations and furnishings - you can't imagine how wonderful those 1000 threadcount sheets feel - luxurious! You walk out the back door and over the berm and you're right on the beach. It is so quiet in that area, that sleeping is not a problem. We also read books on the front porch - totally surrounded by beautiful tiling. My kids have been trying to cooridinate all their vacations just so we can go back. It's fantastic!

Fabulous Getaway

  • 4 of 5
My husband and I booked the first floor of this beautiful restored home located right on the beach for our one week getaway. The first floor is equipped with modern amenities and everything you need for your stay at the beach. The view from the front porch of the Chautauqua is breathtaking. It makes for wonderful relaxation listening to the waves roll in. I would recommend the first floor to any couple looking to getaway. If there are more couples, the main floor of this jewel is amazing. Go and enjoy a stay at the Chautauqua!
