|Minimum Stay||2 - 3 nights|
From the rooftop crow’s nest of Seaside Escape, our 3-story house on St. Augustine Beach, you can see a strip of bright blue ocean. Come stay in this luxurious house just 2 blocks from the beach and enjoy balcony vistas, a fenced yard, HDTVs, and more!<br/><br/>There’s plenty of room for the whole group here, with 5 bedrooms spread over all 3 floors of the house. The master bedroom offers a small private balcony, while soaring ceilings in the great room add to the spacious feel of Seaside Escape. You’re going to love it!<br/><br/>Begin your exploration on the second floor, which is the main living and dining area of the house, in addition to the location of 2 of the bedrooms. The great room is a fabulous area, with polished hardwood floors, a spiral staircase leading to the third-floor bedroom and crow’s nest, sliding-glass door access to the balcony, a huge sectional couch just made for flopping, and a big HDTV. This may become your favorite room at Seaside Escape, and the main “hang out” area for your group in between adventures.<br/><br/>The living room segues into the dining area, a magnificently sunny room with a majestic table for 10 between long, bright windows. This table is the command center of the house, and usually sports at least one laptop (you have free wireless Internet here) as well as paper and markers for the kids, brochures about St. Augustine’s famous attractions, Peterson’s Guides to Florida birds, and more! Shove everything aside when it’s time to play a lively round of Uno, or set it up as a buffet table and carry your plates out to the balcony to dine in the balmy, salt-tinged breeze. <br/><br/>Of course, it’s also possible to dine at the dining table, and our state-of-the-art kitchen makes it difficult to resist a few homecooked meals – even on vacation! The wooden cabinets and gleaming appliances stand ready to help you prepare and serve just about anything – we’ve stocked them with cookware, dishes, utensils, glasses, and small appliances to save you time and make your culinary adventures more fun. Cook up those freshly caught fish, blend a pitcher of margaritas in seconds, or make a big pot of coffee to get everyone moving in the morning. And if Sunday means pancakes for breakfast, you’ll find the spatula, whisk, bowls, and griddle here – just add groceries!<br/><br/>When it’s time to retire for the night, everyone will look forward to a cozy bed in a quiet, restful room at Seaside Escape. The master bedroom is on the second floor, and is a sanctuary of comfort after a busy day in historic downtown St. Augustine or on the sugary-white sands of the beach. It offers a king-sized bed and sliding-glass door access to a private balcony that looks out over live oaks and leafy beauty. There are his-and-her nightstands and reading lamps in here, soft carpeting, and an atmosphere of calm that you will really appreciate after spending all day with a big group.<br/><br/>The second bedroom is also on this floor, sharing the full bath with the master. This room contains a queen-sized bed beside a big, bright window. Comfy and soothing, it’s a great place for a well-earned nap or long night’s sleep.<br/><br/>The first floor contains 2 more bedrooms and the second full bathroom. One of these bedrooms offers a queen-sized bed with an HDTV and access to the fenced backyard of Seaside Escape. This is a great space for the early riser who likes to walk along the beach while the last rays of the sunrise fill the sky (and everyone else gratefully sleeps late!). The second bedroom on this floor contains 2 twin-sized beds.<br/><br/>Accessed by a spiral stair case, the third floor is the most fun for the kids in the group, with yet another bedroom, this one also containing 2 twin-sized beds below sloping eaves and a round window. <br/><br/>Seaside Escape is the perfect family or group vacation house. From the washer and dryer to the full complement of linens and towels to the outdoor shower and offstreet parking, everything here is designed for comfort and convenience. Treat yourself!
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.
The house was everything described on the internet. It was the best family vacation ever. All our children and grandchildren were there and it was just awsome. The location was a dream. Would love to go back at some point. The people at the guard shack were so nice and helpful.
The home was lovely and well maintained with nice furnishings. We had a view of the beach from the third floor porch, and beach access was directly across the quiet neighborhood street. The pool area was lovely, and we enjoyed cooking on the gas grill. We found the placement of bedrooms/baths to be a little awkward for our multi-generational family group. Our youngest are college-age; groups with young children would probably be fine. Our one suggestion would be to change the seating in the dining room to provide more than six chairs and/or provide folding chairs and a card table. We were disappointed that a house that could sleep 16+ did not provide adequate table space and seating for our 15 adults to gather for meals in one general area.
Our family loved this home. It is 2nd row to the ocean and very easy to get to. We were hoping to spend a lot of time on the beach but it was drenched with seaweed and the first time we went out our girls came back with bites all over their legs and feet from sand fleas I supposed. Sand is not the soft white but course and not for sand castles. It had rained and was very windy so we really didn't get any beach time our vacation. The house is beautiful inside, it was so nice to have the bunks on the same level as the master. We also loved the pool after we figured out how to turn on the heat. I think we may have been one of the first renters as there were a few kinks that need worked out. The MB light switches which would continue tripping the breaker. A ton of light switches and four difficult tv remotes to the main TV to figure out. The garage is very hard to get your vehicle in as the two on the side are very narrow and a SUV or Van will take 4 or 5 turns to get it in straight and only inches on each side. The other garage is used for the owner of the house which would have been the easiest to get in. Over all, the house was very nice. Be prepared to pay for tolls crossing over the bridge as everything is across the bridge. I would say that if the beach was a bit nicer we would absolutely come back.
We were supposed to have three roll out beds there on arrival and had none. Had to chase to get some. Main TV wasn't working well - kept turning off. House was lovely.
the Home was beautiful! VacationRentalPros were excellent to work with & provide us all the information & details & followup was excelent. Our family reunion was wonderful time and we would do it again all had a great time!
Beautiful house with a great location. What few problems we had where handled promptly by Arcadia, and Jim.
