The name says it all! When you stay at Barefoot, our ocean front house on St. Augustine Beach, you just can't help but unwind and have fun the way you did as a kid. Panoramic sea views, new electronics, and luxurious comfort create the perfect vacation!<br/><br/>Located on a quiet side street directly beside the beautiful natural dunes of St. Augustine Beach, Barefoot is just made for relaxation and enjoyment. When you're strolling along the quiet beach in early morning, the last rays of dawn still streaking the sky and freshly beached shells waiting to be discovered, you'd never guess you are just minutes from busy, vibrant St. Augustine. You can truly have both worlds at Barefoot!<br/><br/>Your favorite spot at Barefoot will probably be the big second-story deck, running the length of the house and then some, so that both shady and sunny spots are always available. From here you have a breathtaking view of the beach, the soundtrack of the surf, and the feel of balmy breezes. We have casual seating and dining areas here, a barbeque grill, and comfy lounge chairs for sunbathing. Make yourself at home and begin enjoying world-class views!<br/><br/>There is a patio on the ground floor as well, leading directly onto the grassy lawn behind the dunes. Sink into one of the hammocks here with a good book or your phone (you have free wireless Internet at Barefoot), and you'll feel all the tension leave your body. You might also fall asleep, and that's even better. What else is a beach vacation for?<br/><br/>When you're ready to go inside, you don't have to leave the views behind you. Our big second-story great room has 2 sets of sliding doors leading out to the deck, so the sight of palm trees, blue sky, and glimmering ocean follows you indoors! Here you'll find a big fireplace (so cozy in winter!), a 46-inch HDTV mounted to the wall, and ultra-luxurious leather furniture just waiting for you. There's room for everyone here, with 2 dining tables ready to be converted into games areas and a big kitchen for all your drinks and snacks!<br/><br/>No matter how large your group, you'll find all the cookware, dishes, and utensils you need in our kitchen to cook and serve just about anything, along with full-size appliances and conveniences such as ice and water in the fridge door, a microwave, coffeepot, and the all-important dishwasher. Our breakfast bar seats 4, one table seats another 6, and the third table is comfy for 4, so there are many places to eat and drink. Of course, the deck might end up being your al fresco dining "room," but it's nice to have options!<br/><br/>The big, open-plan living and dining area promotes togetherness and big groups, while the bedrooms at Barefoot are wonderfully quiet and private. There are 2 upstairs and 2 downstairs, comfortably sleeping 8, with all linens provided.<br/><br/>The master bedroom is on the second floor, with ocean views, an HDTV with DVD player, and a king-sized bed. This room is convenient to the upstairs bathroom, which features wood paneling, a walk-in shower, and granite countertops. <br/><br/>Also on the second floor is our second bedroom, with a queen-sized bed and an HDTV. Downstairs is a kids' room with 2 twin beds and a stereo system, and a sitting room with a daybed and trundle. The downstairs bedroom is convenient to both of these rooms, and all towel sets are provided for both bathrooms. So pack light -- we have a laundry room with a washer, dryer, and utility sink, so you can keep all your vacation clothes and beach towels fresh and clean!<br/><br/>Barefoot has plenty of off-street parking for all your vehicles, as well as beach toys, folding chairs, and more to make your time on the sugary sands of St. Augustine Beach just perfect. <br/><br/>You may never want to leave Barefoot, but we are surrounded by great golf, fine dining, and sightseeing opportunities for all ages. So whether you're planning a whirlwind of events, nothing at all, or something in between, you'll be comfortable and so conveniently located at Barefoot! Make your reservation today and begin planning the vacation of a lifetime.
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.
Great house filled with wonderful New England antiques throughout. Awesome view of the ocean and easy walk over the dunes to the beach.
This is a wonderfully, comfortable older home that you just want to putter around in. Was great for my 50th birthday celebration. Heated pool made the cooler days feel tropical. Only drawback was the dead trees blocking some of the view of the beach, but not enought to complain. Property manager and pool maintenance provided awesome service! Great for family trips. Have seen many complaints about the amount of steps, but we just looked at is as our exercise time. I have knee problems and made it fine. Kitchen is WELL stock with everything you need to cook with. Love this place!
The house itself was very cute and loved the layout..Everything was spotless and very nice. We enjoyed the large decks on the house very much so... The creened in porch we did not use becaue of the storm ripping out 5 of the screen on Sunday nite... I called and E-mail to let the property Manager know of the problem.. I called back too the office on wed-thur to let them know about he problem again.. The bugs were so bad we couldn't leave the rear doors open on the house... no screens too stop them from coming in... I wsh someone would have just shown up to maybe give the impression they were gonna fix instead of playing phone tag with me.. I was there everyday on the beach or deck... very disappointed in that part of my stay house was great again but Not sure I'll rent from you again. There was a storm that did the damage so it was not the property managers fault, I just think it could have been handled better after I called back mid week to get them fixed.
From the first moment we saw Crescent Cottage we new it was for us and our family, even the resident turtle in the front garden emerged to greet us. The cottage was spotlessly clean and very well equiped. The beds were very comfortable and again clean with pretty bed linen - plenty of seating in the lanai and deck but.....the very best was the gorgeous view. As soon as you enter the front door you can see it and of course the sunrises were breathtaking. We can't wait to return.
Our family had a wonderful stay in the Cottage on Crescent Beach. We all felt at home with the accomodations. There were so many neat items throughout the cottage and on the grounds. The sunrises were absolutely incredible. The photos we took will be a great reminder of our weeks stay. Thank You!
We loved everything about this property. The screened in porch was great to sit out on and read books in the cozy rocking chairs during the few rainy nights we had. The large back deck was wonderful for coming back from the beach and lounging around with great food, friends and family. The beach wasn't crowded at all and we had great weather.The only thing we weren't thrilled with was the lack of a dock walkway out to the beach, there is only a sand path that can be difficult to navigate thru when towing beach gear. Had a great stay and will absolutely rent again!
