We are so delighted with this little yellow dune house in Summer Haven. Every room on the 2nd floor has a beautiful view of the water The beach is nearly deserted. The decks are wide and wonderful. <br/><br/>Oceanfront beach house on the dunes in Summer Haven for your quiet family vacation anytime of the year. I know you'll just love it here. On the 2nd level, three bedrooms, each with a great view, a nice great living room with a view, kitchen with a view - and the river in the back yard! On the newly constructed 1st level, there are two bedrooms and 1 full bathroom plus an extra living room and a kitchenette. Perfect for two families traveling together. Note: The 1st floor and 2nd floors are accessed via an external stairway.<br/><br/>Sitting on a spit of land between the Atlantic Ocean and the Matanzas River, it’s a water lover’s dream. Go for a morning swim and then enjoy an outdoor shower before waking the family with a delicious cooked breakfast. Florida oranges taste even better with these views, or how about bacon eaten atop retro diner stools? <br/><br/>Your ample communal space includes a living room and fully stocked kitchen, both with ocean views. Enjoy your home-cooked meals outside on the large decks and wonder how you’ll ever manage to leave. <br/><br/>Sunrise Sunset is a five bedroom three bath beach house, with generous decks and views of the Atlantic Ocean and the Intracoastal Waterway that go on forever and ever! With big windows, beautiful floors, big decks and great views. The beach here in Summer Haven is so quiet and so beautiful - very broad at low tide with a beautiful white sand mixed with coquina sand, and still wonderful at high tide. <br/><br/>This very well-maintained home is particularly special for its huge windows and pristine wooden floors. Furnishings are bright and delightful, with lots of interest added in accents and tropical house plants. The living room’s lime green couches make a great spot for an afternoon nap. LCD TVs are a lovely touch and the fireplace is perfect for winter rentals. <br/><br/>The house is set up in a Zen like manner - simple and comfortable. There's a nice outdoor shower out back. This is just a great place for a vacation. Bring the kids and dogs - everyone can safely roam here!<br/><br/>Quiet and charming Summer Haven has long been a secret amongst the country’s elite. Since its back-country beginnings in 1885, this sleep seaside town has provided lucky visitors a taste of the other side of Florida. Before loud resorts and frenetic amusement parks, the cream of northern society vacationed here for languid days and lazy nights. <br/><br/>Your pets are very welcome and they’ll go crazy for all the sights and sounds on offer. Quiet roads and surrounds make this a safe spot both for pets and kids. The beaches remain nearly deserted, even in peak season. <br/><br/>For day trips, you’re spoiled for choice. Fort Matanzas makes a great afternoon out - and is just a 2-minute drive away. St. Augustine is a must-see as well, about a half hour’s drive.
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.
My family and I stayed at this beach rental at the beginning of April, which was the perfect time! It was after the Spring Break crowd and before the Annual Boat Race and Rib Festival (although those sounded like fun too!). The weather was immaculate, couldn't have been better! The first thing that we noticed about the rental was the amazing view! It is everything the picture shows and more!! The front porch allows breathtaking views of the sea, while the back porch allows for stunning sunsets over the river - this alone was worth the money we paid for the rental! Inside was just as the pictures show, nothing fancy (we didn't mind - we weren't spending much time at the house). The place is plenty spacious, we had 3 adults and 4 children staying. My top praises for the place were, it was clean, it was roomy, and it had modern amenities (wi-fi, satellite tv, AC). We were quite comfortable. Some things I would change are adding a full size coffee pot (had a small 4cp pot), adding more towels (did laundry twice for clean shower towels), and adding garbage cans outside with lids (the raccoons liked to dig out the trash daily so that was a chore). All in all this was a perfect place for us! The location is private and beautiful - yet close to everything! We saw dolphins swimming in the morning while eating breakfast, that was incredible. I found that the whole stay was quite relaxing and accommodations were comfortable (if you are looking for luxury, this is not the place - but it was very affordable and you get plenty for what you pay for). The outdoor shower was a great thing to have too after a day at the beach! We plan to stay here again! There are also no window screens so it was impossible to open the windows for a nice breeze. That was about the only bummer I can think of.
Do not tell anyone else about this jewel. Sunrises in the morning and unobstructed sunset views in the evening. Private beach. Very little traffic. Will be back.
Location was everything we expected and more. The layout and space worked quite well for our family and friends. Outside grounds not as clean as should of been. Ended up picking up trash. No grill of any sorts on property for cookout. Location more than made up for these small issues. Would recomend.
Loved this area. Perfect beach, very private! House was cute and clean.
The only complaint we had is the water smelled like sulfur and tasted awful. Other than that we WILL be planning another vacation at one of your vacation properties!!!!! We had 11 in our party and we never seemed was very spacious!! We had the BEST WEEKEND EVER!!!! The House was GREAT, the beach was Awesome, and so was THE VIEW!!!
It was very nice. The house was clean and in fairly good repair. We did call the property manager to deal with a few items that came up during our stay...mainly items that were worn out or broken when we checked in. They were fairly minor and didn't impact our overall enjoyment. The location was spectacular and the beach was fantastic. We will be back next year.
