|Minimum Stay||2 - 3 nights|
Enjoy unbelievable 360-degree views of the ocean and Intracoastal Waterway from Blue Water View, our 3-storey beachfront house at the very end of Summer Haven. Nothing but sand, water, and sky surround you on 3 sides of our unique house on Crescent Beach! <br/><br/>Located right on the pristine shores of the beach, our house boasts every amenity from wraparound decks on all 3 levels to an elevator, 2 kitchens, and the latest electronics. The first floor of the house is semi-detached, so it works perfectly as a self-contained unit in case part of your group would prefer their own space. Great for multiple families traveling together!<br/><br/>When you stay at Blue Water View, you can be forgiven for imagining you're aboard a ship -- an effect heightened by the big, beautiful decks jutting out from the second and third floor toward the ocean! The sunrises and sunsets seem almost close enough to touch, and you don't even need binoculars to spot the local marine life (watch for the dolphins!). It's a nature-lover's dream . . . yet for those who prefer sightseeing, fine dining, golf, or city life, St. Augustine is just minutes away! <br/><br/>As enticing as the exterior of Blue Water View is, you won't be disappointed when you step inside. Windows are everywhere, especially in our big 3rd-storey living room. This area features a 50-inch HDTV above the fireplace, a huge sectional sofa that invites you to sink right down into comfort, 2 papasan chairs, and more. A separate sitting area awaits on the other side of the stairwell, for more intimate chats. The bright red sofa here converts to a queen bed.<br/><br/>Adjacent to the big living area is the dining nook, with windows on 2 sides. Million-dollar views are yours from every chair!<br/><br/>The kitchen is right beside the dining area, and we think you're going to love it. Stone countertops, 2 refrigerators, a wine captain, and even a walk-in pantry make you feel as though you're in a model home. Even if cooking is not your favorite activity, these surroundings make it more bearable! And we've stocked the cupboards with all the cookware, dishes, and utensils you need. Just pick up some groceries on your way out of town, and settle in for candlelit dinners in the best seats on the coast!<br/><br/>The third floor also has a half-bath, with both stairs and our brand-new elevator carrying you down to the second story. This is the main sleeping quarters of Blue Water View, with 2 bedrooms and en-suite baths in both. The master bedroom is enormous, with a queen-sized bed, flat-screen TV, comfy armchair in one corner for reading, loveseat that converts into a bed, and views, views, views! Of course you can access the deck from this room, but it's almost as though the outdoors is inside, thanks to all the windows!<br/><br/>The master bath is spacious as well, with his-and-her vanities and a walk-in shower. All of the towels are provided for you here, along with all linens, pillows, and blankets. <br/><br/>The second bedroom on this floor contains a twin bed with a pop-up trundle, as well as a flat-screen TV. The en-suite bath offers a shower and tub combination.<br/><br/>The ground floor also has a master suite, with a queen-sized bed, a flat-screen TV, and a walk-in shower. Another bedroom sports a bunk with a full-sized bed on the bottom and a twin on top. A full bathroom is convenient to this room. <br/><br/>The living and dining areas on the ground floor are lovely, with a kitchen (including the washer and dryer), dining table, HDTV, and queen-size sofa sleeper. Everything is pretty and new here, creating a cozy nest!<br/><br/>Each bedroom at Blue Water View has an I-pod docking station as well as a radio, and you're welcome to use our gas grill on the deck, as well as the X-box and Wii games. We've even got a boat launch, but the river that once flowed here is now silt and sand, so let the kids use it as a fantastic play structure! <br/><br/>There are so many places to explore here, sights to see, and restful beauty to soak up.
My name is Steve Milo and I stay in Vacation Rental Homes when I travel both domestically and abroad. I own several vacation rental homes and listen carefully to our guests and their feedback and then opened my company Vacation Rental Pros in 2006! Our greatest compliment is when our guests refer our web site to their friends and relatives. AND, now Vacation Rental Pros is managing over 825 properties in Ft Myers Beach, Orlando, St Augustine Beach, Daytona Beach, Palm Coast and Ponte Vedra Beach. Our guests and their great 'word of mouth' have helped us expand to over 825+ vacation rentals. We booked over 15,000 rentals and received over 5,000 guest reviews in 2014.
Absolutely beautiful location - private but easy access to stores/restaurants. The home was perfect for our large family. Many amenities not always found with other rentals.
The house was clean and the management was helpful. The dishwasher did not work and the upstairs washer leaked . It's a perfect place on the beach. Fishing was great . We had a wonderful family vacation
This was our second trip to St. Augustine. Both times we have stayed in a home rented by vacation rental pros. This house was great. The view is unbeatable. You're on a semi-private beach as there is never anyone there. You are close to st augustine, great fishing in the mantanzas channel, and so much more. There is three levels in the house. The top two are connected by an inside stairway while the bottom level isn't. There's an elevator but it didn't work most of the days. We had to use the outside stairs which was ok but a bit of an inconvenience. That said, the property overall was great and the location is hard to beat. My kids had a great time and are already asking when we can go back!
The house was perfect! Location could not be better. We had a wonderful time. Only draw back was there is no internet connection. Should have WiFi.
We traveled with extended family (2 children, 6 adults) and had an amazing week. The house worked beautifully for our group; the elevator was an absolute necessity since my 87 year old mother in law was with us. The house provided plenty of room for a large group, so we never felt on top of each other, and the "dock to nowhere" turned out to be a favorite feature. (We would often nap under the dock in the afternoons.) Other reviewers mentioned the quirkiness of the elevator, and we also had a few issues until we figured out the tricks. The door will stick but that is why there is that strange coat hanger tool under the kitchen sink downstairs. The house is advertised for up to 12, but it would get rather crowded with any more than 10. Our party of 8 fit just perfectly.
Our family enjoyed the spectacular location of Blue Water View Beach Front House. It was one of our best family vacations yet! Ten of us from Colorado, Michigan and Florida, age 72 to 2 fit comfortably in this house and there was something to offer for everyone, from sitting on the beautiful decks that surround the house and listening to the waves, to playing on the beach all day. Great memories were made! Thank you for a great experience! Looking forward to booking again!
