Better than the pictures

  • 5 of 5
This was a Labor Day weekend at the beach for my family of 5 and 2 dogs. First if all, you will not meet a nicer couple than Michael and Anne to do business with, a member of their management staff or themselves checked with us almost daily to make sure everything was fine.

The home itself is a very open floor plan and if you run out of dishes, pots or pans you must be having a party for 20 people (There is even a Panini press). The pantry was well stocked and the kitchen very user friendly. It was to warm to use the fireplace but the home is very well maintained and virtually spotless upon arrival.

It is a quick 5 minute walk to the private beach and there are coolers, chairs, beach towels, boogie boards and a beach cart to put it all in, so it easy to tote all of your accessories for the short walk.

Plenty of restaurants are within a mile of the house and a Publix grocery store located near the islands entrance about 3 miles away.

We never left the house except to go to the beach or grocery store taking full advantage of the Weber grill in the enclosed courtyard. All the conveniences of our home, only we were on vacation.

We will certainly be back for future stays.

Great vacation rental!

  • 5 of 5
My family was extremely pleased with the vacation rental. I traveled with my husband, three kids, along with my niece & nephew. The kids ages ranged from 8-16 years. When we walked in the door, the house smelled fresh, clean & was spotless. Also, the house is tastefully decorated & more spacious than the pictures show. The property location is very convenient to the beach access & downtown St. Augustine. Anne & Michael are wonderful property managers who made sure we enjoyed our visit. We are looking forward to returning again, next summer!

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5
We arrived on June 21 and stayed for one week at the beautiful home! Ann and Michael had music playing and wine waiting to greet us as we came. The house was very clean and had absolutely everything we needed! This home also included a private beach access gate which was convinent. It opened to an area of the beach that had very few people. This was a perfect stay for our week!

Seagate Villa

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I just left this morning from a 2 month stay. I can't say enough great things about both the home and the property managers, Michael and Anne. We lucked into meeting Anne and Michael last year during our winter stay here and they graciously showed us some of their rentals. We were so pleasantly surprised at the great care they take in taking care of their customers / renters and the homes the manage, that we rented on the spot for our 2014 stay. When we arrived in January the home was spotless and everything we needed was present. Anne and Michael had the home open for us, music playing and wine waiting on the breakfast bar. Over the 2 months we only had a couple of minor issues that we needed help with (the kitchen ceiling light quit and we needed to get in the keyed mailbox) and both times Anne and Michael responded quickly and pleasantly. If you want a quiet, clean a and super close to the beach place to stay you certainly should call Sanddollar Rentals for available homes. Anne and Michael are more than our rental property managers, now we consider them part of our Florida extended family. We love the home so much we have an on-going booking for our desired dates annually! We can't wait to return. P.S.: If you love sea shells, this is the place to be!!

Amazing!!!!

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from an 8 night stay in this beautiful retreat! We stayed at the other retreat last year and they are both wonderful!! These retreats are perfectly maintained! We had never booked through vrbo until last year and that's when we met Ann, she is wonderful! She is always available to answer questions and has the retreat ready and waiting for your arrival and after a long day of travel this is most appreciated! Ann is very hospitable and does everything in her power to insure you have a great time! There are no hidden fees or extra charges everything is paid up front! The retreats have everything you need! Don't take beach towels, sunscreen etc its all there! Even a beach buggy to carry everything! The kitchen is fully stocked, dishwashing detergent included!! Our family highly recommends Ann and her secret retreats!
