Six bedrooms and five baths for multiple families make this the best value on the beach! Let's start with the living areas ... three of them.

This is where you will be living the good life. The third level features a living/game room with a foosball table, a second kitchenette and a spacious den with a large flat screen TV, again, facing the beach with a second deck. The first floor includes a game area with a TV, DVD, Playstation 2 and even a sofa bed as well.

All this ... with high speed internet connection, gas grill, all the beach toys and chairs you need and your own private catwalk out to the beach. Plus, check out the crows nest high above the house for 360 degree views for miles. And, because we are members, your group can have access to The Serenata Beach Club two miles south for only $243 for the week ... two pools, fitness center, bar and restaurant(10 people, excluding kids 6 and under). First class all the way.

Now, the bedrooms ... beautiful, private Master Bedroom Suite on second (main) level with queen, TV and whirlpool tub/shower...all just a turn of the head to the morning sunrise. Second MBS on third level with queen, TV and private bath with tub/shower. One additional bedroom has twins. Two bedrooms have bunk beds with a twin over a double. And the final bedroom has a queen. Add a couple airbeds for the kids or use the sofa bed and the home can sleep 14.

Your Retreat is ready for you. 15 minutes from downtown St. Augustine and 15 minutes from Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra. See you soon!

CAN I LIVE THERE PERMANENTLY????

  • 5 of 5

My husband spent HOURS looking for the right place for our family reunion. This property really stood out and absolutely was the best choice!

I was afraid that joining 3 families together would mean we would be tripping all over each other. NOT THE CASE! This property is perfect because the introverts have plenty of place to escape to and the extroverts have lots of gathering spaces.

The three floors have sleeping areas on each and bathrooms on each. Actually, there are 5 bathrooms in this place...that was super nice with our group of 14.

There is a kitchen/dining/sitting area on the 2nd (Main Floor). We spent most of our time here.

The deck area is fantastic and the combination of both rocking chairs and lounge chairs was great. You can't find a better place for the sunrise.

The beach is super clean. There is no seaweed junk (at least when we were there in February). I went on several hour long walks and some of our group went for runs on the beach. It's perfect for that. It's also an extremely private beach. I was surprised at how few people there were given that it's a row of houses. There were plenty of really nice shells for shelling.

The kitchen is well stocked. There are two full sized refrigerators---one on the main floor and one on the third floor. THIS IS PERFECT for a big group! I was so psyched to see that. There is room for 8 people to sit at the kitchen table. There is a supermarket about 8 minutes south.

There is a nice sized walk in pantry to throw all the non-perishables. Again, this was awesome, as it kept the counters clean and the chaos of 14 people under control.

Another nice random thing about this house was it's ability to close doors and shut off areas of the house. There is a door at the top of the stairs of the third floor, so if the kids were up playing fooseball, the door could be shut so the noise didn't travel down into the main floor. There was also another door shutting the queen suite off.

The property is fenced off, so you don't need to worry about toddlers wandering into the street.

We would ABSOLUTELY stay here again.

Sincerely, The Carpenters from New Hampshire

Wonderful ocean front home!

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time I rented house instead of hotel. We were able to get our whole family together for a wedding. It was so very nice! Rick and Jen were able to let my brother's family get in a few hours early! Location the best! Ocean views from every room. I can't say enough about how great it was. Rent this house, you won't be disappointed!

Wonderful Family Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

Great property. The hosts have thought of every detail-an extensive manual with information about the area-phone numbers and their favorite picks for local restaurants-we loved their favorites too! The hosts also are very professional and want you to enjoy your trip. The house was just like the pictures and very clean and functional for our family. You are right on the BEACH!! We will stay here again and have already told many of our friends. 5 Star rating from the Phillips Family!

The Beachhouse of ALL beach houses!

  • 5 of 5

Not usually a house renter for vacations I was a little apprehensive. Well, upon arrival, any and ALL concerns disappeared as soon as we stepped into this home. It was GREAT! Lots of bedrooms, bathrooms AND views!! All the beach, water, sunrise and sunset views you could want. The owners were quite accommodating with arrival and departure, deposit, cleaning fees, etc etc. I shopped a lot prior to choosing this "resort" and could not have made a better choice. All in our party were completely overwhelmed at the condition, bedding, Flatscreen TV's all over, wi-if was quite simple to connect to, on and on I could go. All in all, I vill be back!!

Incredible Oceanfront Home...This is it!!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment I walked into this home, I knew I had found the home I have been looking for! No need to look any further in your search for the perfect home because this is it! From space, to views, to cleanliness, to attentive property managers this home has it all. As I was the first to check in, I had the pleasure of unpacking and setting this spacious home up as “our home” for the next 6 days. When I vacation, I don’t want the place I stay took look like it is temporary…but rather a “retreat.” There was so much space on the full three levels that nothing looked crowded or cluttered as I unpacked a full SUV. Two large pantries (I only used one) and walk- in closets for every bedroom easily tucked the suitcases and supplies out of site. This home was designed right with all the bedrooms facing the ocean and the bathrooms and kitchen facing the street side. Trust me…this is a huge gift for all your guests as the street side can get quite noisy at times.

The views from the second and third levels are as good as it gets because the full size windows wrap around the corners so you get to see the ocean from two different angles. It is as if you never need to leave these rooms to feel you are outside enjoying the beach! But if this is not good enough, go topside to the crow’s nest and see for miles around you!

The second deck with comfortable Adirondack chairs was the favorite spot for all guests to enjoy the ocean breeze and a favorite beverage, a book or a good conversation! The kitchen was fully stocked (plan to get/bring some plastic containers) with ample place settings. 5 full bathrooms were also a real plus! The driveway was a bit challenging if you have a lot of vehicles. Were able to manage 4 cars in the drive and two across the street so plan accordingly if everyone wants to bring their own car like my family did.

Jenny and Rick were awesome to work with. This is the second time I have rented from them and they are top notch, attentive to every detail and quick to remedy anything that is broken. If this home does not have what you want, ask about their others. Having attentive and professional property managers is as important as having the perfect home. In fact the “perfect home” that is poorly managed and attended will only lead to frustration at a time you should be relaxing.

Since I only live 30 miles away, I know the area very well. You will need a car but there is so much to see and do in St. Augustine, you

Fantastic family house!

  • 5 of 5

I had been searching for a beach house to rent for a week during the summer. I had a group of 5 adults ages 40 - 78 and 4 children ages 6-10. My first priority was that the property would be beachfront, and then I wanted plenty of room for various activites. This house met and exceeded expectations. As we walked into the main floor we saw the ocean was literally our front yard with a beautiful private beach. The six bedrooms and 5 full bathrooms gave us all comfort and privacy. Every room in the house has an ocean view. The top floor family room had floor to ceiling views of the ocean, and we usually all ended up there after dark. The main floor had a comfortable living area and dining table and chairs so that we could all eat together. The main deck was fabulous with its wonderful row of comfortable chairs and then just steps down to the beach. Early evening found the adults gathered on the deck as the children ran on the beach or flew kites. At sunset a few would wander up to the rooftop deck for the best scenery possible We enjoyed views of the inland waterways and magnificent sunsets.

The entire group agreed that this was the perfect house for our little family reunion.

Rick and Jenny were very easy to work with. When I mentioned that we would probably do most of our cooking on the grill they mentioned that the grill seemed on its last legs and had a new one delivered the next day.
