|Minimum Stay||2 - 3 nights|
Just a minute's walk from the beach, Coastal Karma is a beautiful European-style house just right for your St. Augustine vacation. We've got a hot tub, pool, balcony, fenced grassy yard, and all the space your group needs for a great Florida getaway! This home was just completely upgraded in March 2013.<br/><br/>Coastal Karma has 5 bedrooms all with HDTVs, plus a bonus room that sleeps one more. We have 3½ baths, a big covered patio with some peek-a-boo views of the ocean from the kitchen and dining area. This is a luxurious but very comfortable place to stay, and we invite you to make it your home base when you come to the northeastern Florida coast!<br/><br/>Bring the kids' Big Wheels and sidewalk chalk, because there's plenty of room to play in our backyard and on the patio. Our aboveground pool offers a splash of pure refreshment on a balmy Florida day, while the hot tub is a great way to limber up first thing in the morning and relax tired muscles late at night! Add the ocean into the mix, and you have nonstop water fun for the whole group.<br/><br/>You'll want to stay outdoors long into the evening, so pick up some burgers or fresh seafood at the market and enjoy a dinner on the back patio at least once while you're here. <br/><br/>When it's time to go indoors, you'll be delighted by the breeziness of silent ceiling fans supplementing the central air-conditioning and the comfortable décor welcoming you to a place of relaxation. The main living and dining areas are on the second floor, but the ground floor contains 3 bedrooms and the bonus room with a futon sofa and TV.<br/><br/>One of the 1st-floor bedrooms includes an en-suite bath with shower and tub option. This room contains a queen-sized bed, soft carpeting, HDTV, and a door right out to the patio. Of the other 2 bedrooms on this floor, one other also contains a queen-sized bed, plus a HDTV, carpeting, and direct patio access. The other offers 2 twin beds in an airy, carpeted room and HDTV. A full bathroom is convenient to both of these bedrooms, with dual vanities and a bathtub/shower combination.<br/><br/>Travel upstairs and you find yourself in our luxurious living room, complete with a fireplace and elegant hearth, HDTV, Blue Ray/DVD player, leather sofa, travertine floor, and access to the balcony with lovely views of the countryside. Decorative pillars frame this room, which leads directly into the formal dining room with chandelier and wet bar.<br/><br/>The kitchen is breathtaking, with state-of-the-art stainless steel appliances, tile floors, marble countertops, a breakfast bar as well as an informal breakfast table in a sunny nook. We've stocked the cupboards with all the equipment you need to prepare and serve a feast for the whole group (plus friends!), and you'll find all the time-savers you rely on as well: microwave, coffeemaker, ice and water in the fridge door, and of course the dishwasher!<br/><br/>But your favorite part of Coastal Karma may just be the master suite, with its heavenly king-sized bed, HDTV, French doors leading out to the patio (with glimpses of the sparkling Atlantic Ocean!), and en-suite bath with dual vanities, a garden Jacuzzi, walk-in shower, travertine floor and even a chandelier. Ah, what bliss!<br/><br/>You'll also find another bonus room on this floor, with 2 futon sleepers and a big HDTV. (Teens and tweens, this room is calling your name!) A half-bath and a big laundry room complete the 2nd-story layout -- and you'll find all of the linens and towels you need for every bed and bath waiting for you here, fresh and soft. Pack light this trip!<br/><br/>When you stroll out onto the covered second-floor balcony, with its smooth brick floor and comfortable lounge chairs, you can survey the neighborhood, gaze down at the backyard and pool, and count the stars at midnight. Sorry, a grill is not provided at this home. However, one can be rented at your expense. Call us for further information.
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.
Wow, what a great property. This really was a beach paradise for the week. Beautiful home, cool inviting pool, and a wonderful secluded beach. We had an amazing time and look forward to coming back many more times. I highly recommend this property for the most relaxing and fun time you'll ever spend at the beach.
Over all the Home was great for a large Family Vacation. The carpets need to be replaced NOW. Elevator did not work during our stay but we would have used it only a few times. The staff was great! The Location was close to perfect. Would consider renting<br/> again.
I realize that this is a beach house. However, for the extremely high cleaning fee you charged, I would have expected that at least spots on the carpet be cleaned.
The house needs some major maitenance. Many things were rusted, beach side exterior lights didn't work, clocks in master bedroom didn't work, cloth dryer didn't work, stereo didn't work, etc..
We all loved the location--close to the beach, and not far from amenities. The house, however, had some issues. Specifically, the septic tank backed into the house and had to be pumped out around midnight, we had some other maintenance issues,and three bathrooms for a house advertised to accommodate 20 people are insufficient. We liked a number of the features of the home, however, including the porches, and the large common room.
We spent a great week with our grandchildren and their parents. Everything was delightful. We hated to leave at the end of the week. The beach is very private, the waves great for body surfing. just enough wind for kite flying. <br/><br/>The only problem was that some light switches don't turn on the lights in the rooms so you stumble around in the dark looking for a lamp to turn on. One ceiling fan in the living room didn't work. The VCR player in the living room didn't have a connection to the TV. The child protection gates at the top of the spiral staircase and on the deck leading to the front parking and highway are missing so we had to improvise. The wireless internet came in handy for the many laptops we brought along. It was a dream vacation that we would recommend to anyone who has a large group. There is plenty of room for air mattresses for the grandkids who want to sleep together according to age groups.
