St. Augustine House Rental Photos and Description
Cranberry Cottage, Private Pool, 100 steps to beach, sleeps 8
Just 100 steps from the beach, our upgraded Cranberry Cottage is the perfect venue for your next St. Augustine vacation. Our 2 bedroom plus house offers several decks and balconies, a plunging pool, lovely landscaping, and beautiful furnishings.
Cranberry Cottage brings you all the comforts of a home in a wonderful location. Both floors of the house boast wooden decks, with space to grill out, dine, lounge, and glimpse the blue Atlantic just yards away. Enjoy a fully fenced back with tropical plants and a lawn for playing. It's the ideal outdoor living spot, with a big 9-sided pool for cooling off, a great mix of sun and shade, zesty salt breezes from the beach, and balmy temperatures year-round.
Come into the royally furnished 1st floor of Cranberry Cottage and you are enveloped in a warm, friendly living room, with a fireplace, overstuffed easy chairs, several comfy couches, and a TV with cable. There's space for the whole group to gather here, with sunshine spilling in from numerous windows and soft carpeting for those tired "beach feet."
Just beyond the living room are the kitchen and dining areas. You'll find the gourmet kitchen at Cranberry Cottage as well-equipped as your own at home: cookware, dishes, glasses, utensils, gadgets and gizmos fill the cabinets, and the sleek, full-sized appliances stand ready to help you prepare and serve a feast. At one end is a tiled breakfast bar, set with stools so that you always have company in the kitchen!
The dining table sits beside the breakfast bar, set for 6. This sturdy table is the command center of Cranberry Cottage, converting itself between meals into a game table, puzzle center, and work space. (You have free WiFi here, so bring your laptop!) You'll love getting the whole group together after a busy day in the Old City and discussing your adventures over a bottle of wine and a leisurely game of cards!
There is one bedroom on the ground floor, as well as a full bath. Perfect for early risers who like to get the coffeepot perking and witness the spectacular sunrise over the ocean, the downstairs bedroom offers a queen-sized bed, private TV, and big windows overlooking the garden.
Travel upstairs and you find the master suite. The master suite is large, airy, and so comfortable, with a queen-sized bed and access to the beautiful upstairs deck with casual seating. In the master suite you have a private TV as well as your own bath with a separate sink & vanity. There is also a bonus room with as well as a deluxe day bed that transforms into a king size bed.
Spacious and inviting, the master suite is a pleasure you will look forward to every evening, and a great place to linger late in the morning, undisturbed by any activity downstairs. Send the kids down to watch cartoons (it's vacation, after all!) and enjoy another hour or two of sleep, or slip out to the deck with a cup of coffee and your smartphone to update your social media.
Cranberry Cottage also has all the extras that make your vacation easier. You can park off-street in the garage or the driveway. Feel free to use the washer and dryer here, and don't worry about bringing extra pillows: we provide all linens and towels for every bed and bath. There's even an outdoor shower so you can rinse off the sand before you come indoors.
Best of all, Cranberry Cottage has a delightful 9-sided plunging pool just made for fun! When the kids seek quieter waters after the excitement of the waves at the beach, bring a pitcher of cold drinks out to the pool and indulge in long, raucous games of Sharks and Minnows in your own backyard! For those who would rather sunbathe than splash, the adjacent deck has plenty of space. And when the tummy begins to rumble, just call delivery and enjoy a delicious al fresco dinner under the warm evening sky! This is what vacations are made of.
At Cranberry Cottage, you're just a short drive from the Old City. Best of all, the wide, unspoiled beach (no cars) is steps away.
