ST. AUGUSTINE SOLITUDE: SUMMER SPECIAL!!! - STEPS TO THE BEACH

St. Augustine Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-9)

South Beach Solitude is one of a kind in a small beach neighborhood. Steps to the beach, a bike ride or walk to the things you need, close enough to down town (10 mnts), yet far enough away to provide perfect Solitude!

The beach is literally a 1 mnt and 30 sec walk from the front door. Hear the ocean 24/7 and feel a constant breeze with cooler temperatures than the main land. Why?...you're on an island and the house sits in a thin part of the island (5/10ths of a mile wide) with constant ocean and intercoastal breezes. No bugs! :) (See map). Also, there are 2 boat ramps at the back of the neighborhood if you need to drop your boat in the intercoastal (6 mls by sea to Mantanzas Inlet ocean access). Also, don't be fooled by houses which are actually further away form the beach even though they are on beach side of A1A. They are actually further away, it's a further walk to the beach, have no close driving access, and no water behind them (intercoastal). Simply pointing out a few thigs I've heard other say 'if they had only knew' :)

The open floor plan gives you plenty of space to ensure you're not cramped. Everything you need is provided for when your at the house. Outside you have a pool and patio area with a gas grill, table, seating for 6 and chaise lounges. An outdoor shower is in a private area along the side of the house. Fenced in side and back yard, great for keeping the shower private and great for the dogs. Though hopefully you're at the beach or out and about enjoying the sun and other activities and not spending much time in doors :) Inside you're stocked and the description is below.

Quiet, easy access to everthing, we know you'll love it as we and so many others have.

We hope to have you visit South Beach Solitude soon.

Enjoy!

AS GREAT WE EXPECTED!

  • 5 of 5
This was a great rental, and we enjoyed it very much. We had 6 adults and 2 children (ages 18 mo and 7 mo) staying here, and it was plenty of space for us. It was comfortable, clean, well-maintained, and stocked with all the plates, utensils, cookware etc. that we needed. It was located close to the main road up to historic St Augustine, but we never heard any traffic at all. And it was really just a 10-minute walk to the beach. We were there over Christmas, so it was too cold to use the pool, but it looked very nice. We did use the BBQ a lot, and it was fantastic - large and powerful. The owner is pleasant and responsive as well.

We would stay here again, definitely.

WONDERFUL VACATION HOME!

  • 5 of 5
The house was absolutely wonderful. It was decorated tastefully. We stayed for a month and although the weather was unseasonably cold, we felt very comfortable staying in watching movies and relaxing. The house was nicer than the pictures showed.

The owner made himself available for any questions we had and was very helpful. The house was very clean and well maintained.

We would recommend this property for anyone.

GREAT HOUSE AT THE BEACH

  • 5 of 5
The house was immaculate when we walked in the front door. The picture of the house on the outside was exactly as shown. The inside of the house looked much better in person than the pictures showed. Everything was in order and ready for us to use. There were 7 of us in the 3 bedroom/2 bath house. I especially liked the set up of the house in that the master bedroom and master bath is on one side of the house and the other 2 bedrooms are towards the back of the house near the other bathroom. The neighborhood was very quiet. Having a pool in the back yard was great for the kids. There were also 4 bikes that the kids could ride to the beach. The appliances all looked brand new and the washer and dryer were great. There was plenty of pots and pans for cooking. There was a large flat screen TV in the living room and other large TV's in 2 of the other bedrooms. The wireless internet was great for the kids. Everything was thought of and we did not need anything. The Publix Supermarket is within 3/4 miles of the house. We did not go out to eat because we did all the cooking at the house. There was a BBQ Grille out in the back yard that we did use on July 4th. If given the occasion again I would not hesitate to rent this house. Brian, the owner, was great he answered any question I had in a very timely manner. St. Augustine is a beautiful area and you can take your car on the beach. I would recommend this property without a doubt.

EXCEEDED MY EXPECTATIONS

  • 5 of 5
My family and I were very pleased with the house. The house was large enough to accommodate three large families. The pool was great and the master bedroom was gorgeous. The kitchen really Did have every thing that you could think of or need. All of us were saying how we would definitely go back and stay at this house again. Thank you for sharing your home with our family.

WHAT YOU SEE IS NOT WHAT YOU GET!!

  • 2 of 5
We rented this home for the month of March 2013. The pictures on the VRBO web site are accurate and true. What you don't see beyond the pictures is a dingy home with worn and stained carpeting, garage sale quality linens and used dust covered candles and other dusty décor. The Dollar General kitchen utensils and no garbage disposal made cooking in this kitchen very inconvenient. The back yard and pool area was nice but the pool isn't heated so we were unable to use it due to water temperatures in the 60's. Maintaining the water levels in the pool is a requirement when renting this home whether you use it or not. The beach is just a short walk from this home but crossing the A1A on a busy day or weekend day is scary. The traffic is heavy and doesn't stop to allow you to cross. For safety reasons, we drove to the beach most days. As a VRBO property owner myself, I expected the same quality from this rental home that I give my rental guests. This home didn't offer that. St Augustine is a lovely place to visit. It's history is amazing. The beaches, restaurants and shopping in the area are wonderful. We especially liked the Farmer's Market at the pier.

Owner's Response: We are deeply sorry the tenants did not enjoy their stay. We've never had the such a review as we take great care of the home & make updates & deep clean the home every May & Oct, as well as the weekly cleanings upon ck out/in. The home was completed painted inside less than 1 yr ago, the carpet is 5 Star hotel commercial grade & less than 1 yr old. We went back & asked the pre & post tenants of Feb & April if they noticed any of wear, tear, stains, & were directly told no. All linnens are dept store grade. If they are getting worn down, let us know & we'll replace them in a second...as we do with any updates tennants let us know about. As far the the candles & utensils, the candles are for ur enjoyment...if they are not used candles can collect dust. The utensils are BedBthByd & Target purchsaed...I have persoanlly noticed pieces & glassess left over form tenants, so we leave them for other tenant use. We can remove all of the odd utensils if need be & further complaints. The silver is Oneida from Macy's. Feb we hit 70's & 80"s, but March had the cold front...we're sorry that it wasnt warmer to swim. The water level is expected to be kept up if ur using the pool. Typically, familys of 4 or more with children expel mcuh water form the pool when splashing around. If not using the pool, there is not any reason to be concenerend w/ the water level, as the pool deos not leak. The pool guy comes once 1/wk to clean, if low he will bring it up as well. If he doesnt come, please let us know. As most know, A1A is the 25ft beach road that runs parallel to the ocean. There is rarely any trafic & the only thing we can think of church traffic on Sundays (there is a church walking distnace ot the house) & bike week was Mar 9-17. Bike week can casue a lot of motorcycle & general trafic up & down the A1A coast during that week as bikers pass & stop through St Aug. We're really not sure how to react as the walk to & from the beach is one of the most enjoyable, especially when using the path in the pics. We here the same from other tenants. It's a 1:30 walk when using the path.
Overall, the feedback is good as it allows us to correct things as best we can. Though if there is an isseue while ur staying with us, please let us know then vs once you've ckd out. We'll addrress as we've always done. We hope this tenant gives us another chance to experince what our other tenants have experienced.

WOW! LOOK NO MORE! IF YOU WANT A VACATION PROPERTY THAT FEELS LIKE HOME, YOU FOUND IT!

  • 5 of 5
We had the pleasure of vacationing at this property for a week and it is everything in the listing and more. . .

The home itself reflects cottage beach life. Each room is comfortably furnished and plenty of walking around space. Bright colors and coastal décor throughout bring the seashore inside and ocean breezes remind you that the beach is literally less than 5 minutes away.

The pool is a pristine as the photos and while the water temp may have been a little cool for local folks (like me) in early April our Canadian cousins didn't waste any time taking a polar bear plunge! There is plenty of room around the deck area to spread out. Cardinals and green parrots will serenade you while they roost on their favorite tree limbs.

The kitchen is well equipped and there is plenty of plastic ware to take the worry out of breaking glasses or dishes if you happen to drop one. Even the most graceful of us have our moments!

St. Augustine has so much to offer and the local restaurants have their own specialty dishes that will keep you coming back time and again. Some of our favorite spots to frequent include: 1) The Beachcomber Restaurant - we love their gator tail. 2) The Conch House Restaurant and Marina - home of Reggae Sundays from March until September. There are live gators on the property, but don't worry, they are enclosed. 3) The Spanish Bakery on St. George St. has some of the best homemade bread you'll ever eat for $2.00 a loaf. 4) San Sebastian Winery - tour, tasting and the rooftop terrace. We enjoy the live music on the weekend up on the rooftop with a pitcher of sangria and light tapas. 4) Harry's Seafood - eggplant stack with crabmeat appetizer. 5) Scarlett O'Hara's - Scarlett Red beer. 6) 1905 Day at the Columbia Restaurant - usually in the fall. 7) A1A Ale Works - microbrewery and some of the best bread pudding you will ever taste! And be sure to take a trolley ride through town to get familiar with the rich history of St. Augustine.

Whether you spend the day at the beach, relax by the pool or shop til you drop, this relaxing beach home located on a quiet street will make you glad you picked this one!

We all had a wonderful vacation and highly recommend it!
