DOLPHIN LOOKOUT, BEACH FRONT, ON SUMMER HAVEN BEACH ST AUG

Summer Haven Townhome Rental Photos and Description

Townhome, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 6)

Like a beach house from a fairy tale, Dolphin Lookout is situated between ocean and river, surrounded by marshland and blessed with beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Located in historic Summerhaven, this charming beach front house is ideal for your vacation.

More than a century ago, the elite of East Coast society vacationed in Summerhaven, enjoying lovely Crescent Beach, the Matanzas River, and the glorious Florida wildlife from luxury bungalows. To stay in Summerhaven was truly to 'get away from it all' -- and now it retains that wonderfully remote atmosphere, even though it's just a few minutes' drive from historic downtown St. Augustine.

Dolphin Lookout comes by its name honestly. Dolphins do indeed swim past, as do manatees and other marine life just off this gorgeous strip of coastline. A bird lover's paradise, it is perfect for every sort of nature activity and water sport. If you want to see the countryside as it might have looked generations ago, come to our oceanfront bungalow in Summerhaven!

Of course, Dolphin Lookout also boasts all the modern conveniences, from central air conditioning to free wireless Internet. The combination of old-fashioned charm, perfect location, and modern features is just unbeatable!

A 2nd-floor wraparound wooden porch overlooks the ocean at Dolphin Lookout, with casual seating and unbelievable views. Accessible from the master bedroom as well as the living room and kitchen, the balcony is just a natural extension of the house, bringing the balmy weather, salty sea breezes, and murmur of the surf even closer. Step out here to catch the dawn sky before that early-morning fishing trip; return in late afternoon to watch stately lines of pelicans glide inland; enjoy a final glass of wine and count the stars at midnight. The sense of peace and contentment is incredible.

The living room at Dolphin Lookout is a big, open room with a handsome fireplace, very comfortable couch (which converts to a bed), and overstuffed easy chairs. Beneath one window is a table, great for special meals with a million-dollar view, or for a puzzle-and-game center. This is a room made for families to putter in, and we think you'll feel at home from the moment you walk in.

Our kitchen is compact and well-stocked, a galley-style design with a breakfast bar on one side of the counter and everything else on the other! All the major appliances, including a dishwasher and microwave, are waiting for you here, along with the full measure of cookware, dishes, and utensils. If fishing is part of your trip, rest assured that you can turn the catch of the day into something elegant in our kitchen! And if dining out is on the menu, stock up the fridge with drinks and the cupboards with snacks, and call it a day!

In a nook at the far end of the kitchen (hidden from view by a curtain) is our laundry area. Nobody likes to think about chores on the holidays, but we do have a washer and dryer for your use. We also provide all the linens, blankets, pillows, and towels for every bed and bath at Dolphin Lookout, so pack light!

There are 2 bedrooms and 2½ baths here, so each bedroom has its own full bathroom. The master bedroom offers a queen-sized bed, TV, plenty of storage space, and a door to the balcony. Its bath contains a walk-in shower.

The second bedroom has 2 twin beds, plenty of floor space for playing, and a bathroom with both a shower and tub option. (The half-bath serves the living and kitchen area.) Everything is fresh, sparkling clean, and pleasant here, guaranteeing the whole family a great night's sleep and a relaxed, stress-free vacation.

But best of all is our location. We're just yards from the ocean, with a generous expanse of empty sand waiting for beachcombers, boogie boarders, sunbathers, and sandcastle-builders! An outside shower helps keep the sand on the beach, but nothing will be able to keep you from venturing down just one more time to stroll along the shore at twilight.

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! Our greatest compliment is when our guests refer our web site to their friends and relatives. AND, now I am managing other people's properties in 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 500+ vacation rentals. We booked over 10,000 rentals and received over 3,000 guest reviews in 2011. You can find some of these by going to search engines and typing in Steve Milo or 'Vacation Rental Pros' . Thank you!

And the best part of it all is the location. You're within a short car ride of historic downtown St. Augustine, the oldest city in America filled with pedestrian walkways with shops, cafes and first class restaurants. We are also close to Daytona Beach and the Daytona speedway and museum. We are also only a 1 1/2 hour drive to Orlando and Disney World/Universal/Sea World as well as 1 1/2 hour to the Kennedy Space Center. Our rental is also a short car ride to Ponte Vedra Beach and PGA golf Course and TPC as well as Jacksonville with the brand new St John's Town Center (with a Costco), Avenue Mall and River Front Arcade. There is also a minor league baseball team and a professional football team and stadium.

The beach is wide and unspoiled here by large crowds. Kids will spend hours exploring, and their parents and grandparents will love discovering new areas to relax and reconnect If you're ready for uncrowded beaches, balmy weather, clear skies, and Florida's natural wildlife, come visit us today!

THE HONEST TRUTH ABOUT THIS PLACE

  • 3 of 5
Pros: Fantastic view of ocean; steps outside the door to the beach. Uncrowded, quiet beach; pretty clean condo. Good price (base price on condo, that is.) Quick response by mgmt company.

Cons: The description of this place has so many falsehoods, it is ridiculous. Advertised bed (on this site and VRBO.com) says King bed in master; IT IS A QUEEN. I call that blatant misleading and false advertising. The "modern" kitchen is straight from the 80s, and that countertop is authentic formica, NOT wood; some of the drawers are about to fall off their slides. Why have HD TVs with the cheapest DirectTV package and no HD service whotsoever? What's the point? And the DVD player is one of those that are part of one TV, which is in the secondary guest bedroom; there is no DVD player in the LR nor the master. The service fees are way too high, by any standards. (I heard that the mgmt company charges BOTH renter and owner for the same services.) Badly needs a carpet shampooing. Fix these things and I might come back to stay here; otherwise there are plenty of other places to stay.
